"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)"Guest: Mendy & Don W.

"I am reluctant to write a positive review because selfishly I want this home to be available on our next trip to N. Captiva. Our family of 5 has just returned from the beach house and we had a great time. The house surpassed our expectations, was furnished with everything you could possibly need and we will definitely return. This was our first trip to the island and the owners were extremely helpful on providing information to make planning our trip stress free. Also, their local property management group was very helpful pre and post arrival. I have used VRBO in the past and never felt strong enough to write a review."Guest: The Griswalds Date of Stay: March 2014 Review Submitted: April 1, 2014View listing
"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.
