  • Fantastic Family Getaway

    "We travelled from Toronto with our young kids (4 and 7) and had a wonderful time. The absence of cars made staying on the island so peaceful! The house is in very good condition, had all of the items we needed and lots we hadn't expected (including beach toys, movies, books, games, etc.). We swam every day at the club and played tennis there too. From the deck we saw dolphins daily as well as tons of birds and other wildlife. The beach directly in front of the house is extremely pretty and has soft clean white sand. The water is a little rough in that area - so we put lifejackets on the kids when they played in the water there. We also drove the little golf cart and explored other beaches on the island - many of which have calm shallow spots for swimming. We rented kayaks one morning and had a great time looking for manatees. We didn't see any on that journey, but saw them a number of times in the little marina area. We ate out a few times for dinner and enjoyed those meals. The only store we're aware of on the island was extremely small and had very limited supplies so you should definitely bring everytihng you need with you. Jane and Jeff were extremely helpful and friendly. We have every intention of coming again."

  • WINDSWEPT…The Place to Stay to be swept away!

    "Mark and Wendy have an amazing home they are willing to generously share at an affordable price with others while still maintaining high quality of service. Their amenities they offer, just in their home, were completely unexpected! Two beautiful washers and dryer units, comforts of home from spices in the chef’s kitchen to the choices of gas or charcoal grilling with table outside. Traveling by plane does not offer a lot of room for bringing many items and Mark and Wendy keep it affordable with many unexpected stocked items. We initially were interested in Windswept because of the beauty of the home and what sold us was the hospitality of Mark and Wendy even before our arrival. Having never been to North Captiva was a little unsettling on not knowing what to expect and how to prepare. Every phone call and every question was answered in patience and kindness even when their normal duties as parents were carrying on. Windswept is all that is pictured on their website. I hesitantly recommend only because I always want it to be available for rent to us! Of course, I say that with humor and a little truth too though. Mark and Wendy personally showed us how everything worked in their home from the media to the appliances. No worries about restful sleep; the beds were amazing and gave much welcomed rest after each day of adventure. The bathrooms were filled with towels, first aid, hair dryers, etc. along with refreshing showers and Jacuzzis to ease the muscles from miles of exploration. Mark and Wendy were always available for questions, but thankfully no problems occurred. Their relationship with NCIC must be top notch as check in and check out was already completed by them. The round home with the complete deck surrounding always gave us access to the beautiful sunrises and sunsets along with the occasional yell down to the pool for our kids to come up for dinner. Each morning our family would meet in the outdoor living room with coffee for event planning and laughing over memories of the previous days. My dad found serenity in reading out there as well. The eagles nest captured an awesome view of the water on both sides of North Captiva while the “savannah” sets as your footstool with many paths that lead to the ocean, either for walking or bike riding. The golf carts were a blast to ride around in. If you are looking for quality, beauty, comfort, clean, and elegance with the warmth of the beach, Windswept is the place to stay. The Ciccos'"

  • 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."

  • Had a great stay....again

    "My husband and I love going to North Cap and staying at Manatee Haven. The house is a much loved home to the owners and not just a rental property. You can tell the difference as soon as you see the house and step inside. The pool area is one of the few on the island that is completely screened in. This means you can swim and sit outside without the insects driving you crazy. For us, it's one of the house's best features. Inside, the house is clean and lacks for nothing. Did you forget something? No problem, chances are Jake and Kay have it :-) Kudos to to Jane and Jeff too. Their smiling faces welcome you at arrival and they are there to get you to the boat for departure. We could go somewhere else but we choose to return to north Cap and Manatee Haven. That says a lot..."
