  • PARADISE FOUND!

    "The moment we arrived at Rainbows End we knew we had found paradise! From the comfy, and wonderfully decorated interior to the screened outdoor porch and side deck, we were hooked. The website pics are spot-on, but can’t convey the wonderful feeling you get when you actually arrive on that deck! It was most difficult to pry ourselves from that deck... not only did we take up positions in the 2 lounge chairs, watching for frolicking dolphin, soaring osprey and the ponderous but graceful pelicans, but also watching the ebb and flow of the Gulf meeting the bay, in front of the house. Sunrises brought out shore birds, and shell hunting, and the sunsets, were magnificent. We explored many of the island laneways by golf cart, walked the beaches and kayaked the bay and dock areas – even viewing manatees up close and personal in the cove. Surprisingly, we ended up dining in for all meals, using up most of our groceries and even had to take a ferry ride (NCR) to Pine Island mid week for additional supplies. But this was an adventure also! If you are looking for sun, sand, and surf and total relaxation, this is the place for you. This was our first VRBO rental. And we are happy to report that Rainbow's End is immaculate, fully equipped and positioned at the best spot on the island. From our first inquiry, Mary Beth was responsive and very helpful. (Remember, you’re not going to Orlando here!) She fully prepared us for the trip, explaining how one gets to North Captiva, advising us to get ferry reservations early and to make arrangements with the Publix market for provisions to bring with us (there is virtually nothing available on North Captiva itself). Having now spent a fabulous week there, the two best tips we can offer anyone considering a visit to Rainbows End are: 1) do it! and, 2) take half the clothes you think you’ll need – and twice the food (and drink)! We will be back! Thank you Mary Beth and Glen, for sharing your bit of paradise with us."

  • Absolutely perfect!

    "We just returned yesterday from a week stay at Surfs Up Beach House. We had the time of our lives!! This house is amazing. My husband and and I, and our boys (ages 8 and 10 yrs old) had such a wonderful time on the island. This house had everything needed to make our stay comfortable and relaxing. The owners Ron and Helen were great to work with! And Tom on the island was super too.....everyone was so friendly! We loved taking the golf cart to and from the beach, where we would watch dolphin play for hours just feet from us!! The rooftop was perfect for watching the sunrise, and sunset! The pool was incredibly private, and a great way to cool off at the end of the day. The kitchen was stocked, the house was clean, the beds were comfortable......it really was the perfect trip!! From beginning to end, everything was smooth. I would not hesitate for a minute to stay at this house again!!!!!"

  • You Ask Why?

    "Why rent this property? Let me give you four good reasons: Relaxing, comforting, peaceful and refreshing! This was a return visit for my husband and I and it was exactly what we needed. This year we even brought a friend. With the rush and stress of everyday life we enjoy a vacation filled with all of the above. Once again, we found it! We relaxed every day....by the pool, on the beach, in the hot tub, watching a movie....every day!! What a life! It was comfortable....plenty of seating, nice beds to rest in, towels, towels and more towels! You name it, we had everything we needed! The home and its surroundings provide a peaceful environment where you can hear the sounds of nature and see the amazing wildlife. Eagles, hawks, sand pipers, sand sharks, manatees, dolphins....so much to enjoy. And at the end of the week you are refreshed. So I would ask, why not? This is the place that you cannot pass up and you will not regret! The place is extremely clean and well maintained. These owners care that you have a wonderful stay and make many special memories. We plan to return again....love this spot and you don't need to leave the US to enjoy a tropical feel! It is definitely a hidden gem!"
