  • Truly a "Little Oasis" in a busy world!

    "My husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary here. We haven't visited in 11 years and it's still such a peaceful and beautiful island! The privacy of little oasis is unparalleled. Even though you can see houses from the upper deck lanai, the pool area is totally private. The lounge by the pool is a great touch and love the heated pool as we had some cool days. It is a lovely little getaway and waking up to only birds and rustling palms was the ultimate in relaxation. Loved our little golf cart and explored the island with it. The wildlife sanctuary has some nice trails to the deserted beach. Marie was very accommodating and helpful and Sandie stocking the kitchen with all our favorites was a nice addition to "customer service"!"

  • 4th of July Family & Friends Retreat

    "Exactly what we expected and more! Thank you for sharing your beautiful butterfly beach home with others! Tropical, remote island makes it feel like we were really far away, especially with no cars, just golf carts, boats & walking. I also like the fact that there's only 1 television in the whole house so if you want to see a movie or event on TV then everyone congregates upstairs in one, big comfy room! Best sunset views I've seen in a while & I grew up in Florida! Great selection of DVDs, novels & games, plus, wonderful artwork all over the house created by owner. Beds and furnishings were super comfy, but our favorite part was exploring. Getting a fishing guide was the best idea we had with catching over 50+ large snook in the pass. Cindy was very helpful in coordinating our arrival with caretaker/ bellman , "Mr Sherman". It was Definitely a plus to rent a home with membership to the North Captiva Island Club. Their pools and equipment rentals kept everyone active. Our gang kept the local restaurant, Barnacles, in business from cobia fish tacos,lobster mac&cheese to yummy ice cream. If you have a fishing boat, like we do, it pays to make buddies at Barnacles with the mgr or Tyler and ask them to give your boat a "private" slip around back. A little farther driving the golf cart from house than the club's docks, but better overall for your boat- especially on busy holiday weeks like we had. Our favorite boat ride restaurants: Cabbage Key; Tarpon Lodge Restaurant (Pineland Marina) & Gramma Dots (Sanibel Marina)"

  • Absolutely Perfect!!

    "This truly is the best place on the island. The home is so comfortable, clean, and bright. We loved the screened porch and relaxed while watching fishing boats during the day and the sunsets at night. We loved being that incredibly close to our own private beach. Everyday there was something new to see on the beach or in the water; dolphins, manatee, birds, shells. Mary Beth and Glenn have this home so well-stocked, we settled in quite nicely. They were very helpful with grocery and transportation suggestions, and showing us around the property. They were right, there is nothing quite like an outdoor shower! This was one of our best vacations ever and had a very hard time leaving it. Cozy home, beautiful beach, peaceful island...we will be back. We wouldn't want to stay anywhere else."

  • Love to vacation here - love to have a home that feels like home

    "This was our second visit to North Captiva - it cemented that this is our favorite Florida getaway. What we loved about Windswept is how much Mark and Wendy make it feel like home. The kitchen is amazingly well organized and stocked. (Wendy even has a map of the kitchen with where everything is/belongs). Need a food processor - they have one. Need a spice you forgot to bring with you - they probably have it. When you want to entertain yourself or the family - they have it covered. The selection of movies if there's a rainy day (we certainly didn't have any but did have movie night) is very complete with recent movies, favorite movies and classic movies. Plus there is a closet full of games to make family time fun time. We love North Captiva and what it brings to our family. On this trip we spent time with a family of manatees, kayaked to see amazing birds, dolphins, stingrays and flying fish. We spent a lot of time at Mango's with Suzy, Matt and Yanni (world's best bartenders). We were also blessed, because we stayed at Windswept, right on the border of the sate park, to see the bobcats. This is the perfect place to connect with family and disconnect from the world (although the wifi worked perfectly). We would highly recommend Windswept as your home for the perfect vacation."
