  • Perfect, relaxing vacation

    "We stayed for a week with 6 adults and 2 young children. Home was comfortable with easy beach access. We were looking for quiet and relaxing and we found it. Once you meet the challenge of getting to No Captiva, you never want to leave. We were fortunate to have a glorious week of weather and hope we can do it again. A vacation I will never forget!"

  • Beautiful Home in a Fabulous Location

    "The moment my husband and I entered Runway Blues, we knew our month long vacation was going to be wonderful. We enjoyed the spacious floor plan, the beautiful décor, comfortable furnishings and well-equipped kitchen. The house is wrapped with expansive decks on each of 3 levels – screened on the BR level, open at the kitchen level and an observation deck on the roof. The upper decks provide privacy and beautiful views of the Gulf, osprey and eagles, the occasional private plane taking off and landing, sunsets and the starry night sky. Because the largest part of the deck is on the south side of the house, we were sheltered from the occasional north wind (Feb.) and were comfortable outside when others stayed indoors. We spent lots of time walking and shell collecting on the beaches nearby – an easy 5 min. walk to the Gulf and the Sound. Driving a golf cart instead of a car to explore the Island was fun! We took advantage of many of the amenities available to us, such as beach chairs and umbrellas, fluffy beach towels, the North Captiva Island Club pools and bicycles, internet connection, and of course the washer and dryer. Working with Mandy from North Captiva Island Marketing to rent the house was a pleasure. She was accessible and provided helpful tips and information in advance of our stay, including getting to the Island, provisioning the house and what to pack. When we arrived on the Island, Tom, the property caretaker, greeted us at the ferry where our golf cart was parked, escorted us to the house where our luggage had already been dropped off and acquainted us with the house. As an island resident and business owner, he is a fountain of helpful information. It's so important to find a “perfect-fit” home when going on vacation, especially when staying for a full month. We enthusiastically recommend this property."

  • Do I Share or Not?

    "Florida has been my families’ spring break go-to spot for years. This year we stumbled upon a closely kept secret -- a tropical paradise. Frankly, I have mixed emotions about sharing the experience or just keeping it myself. Our trip began at Pine Island where we took a boat shuttle across the sound to North Captiva Island. It felt like a trip to another country where things were simpler - no cars, no loud crowds, no tourist traps, no huge hotels; just peace and quiet. When we arrived the caretaker, Jason, met us at the dock with our two golf carts. He led us down dirt roads to Bluefin Beach House - a stunning house tucked in lush vegetation. The home is fully air conditioned, with screened decks, decorated in a beach motif, with it’s own private pool and hot tub. This house was amazing - clean, roomy, and set up perfectly for a large family or several families traveling together. There are three master suites with private baths and balconies. My kids loved the kids room which had 6 bunkbeds, a private bath, and it’s own TV with gaming system. The kitchen and living room are on the third floor with magnificent views of the surrounding vegetation and gulf. As Jason was showing us around our luggage was delivered to our doorstep. We were ready to begin our a vacation. During our week on North Captiva, my family had many adventures: snorkeling for sand dollars and shells, watching dolphins play in the waves and osprey catch fish, kayaking with manatees, and spotting tortoises ambling along the roads. We spent hours walking on the shell covered beaches searching for shells, fishing from the shore, splashing in the pools, and relaxing in the hot tub and on the multiple decks. Access to North Captiva Island club is included with the house rental. With that comes pools, kayaks, tennis courts, more bikes, and a basketball hoop. During our week on the island, my kids were always busy and entertained. If you are looking to slow down the pace for awhile, North Captiva Island and Bluefin Beach House is the place for you. Sit back, relax, and let your stress melt away in the sand and surf of this tropical paradise."
