La Playa Perfect Place
"We arrived to a welcomed early check in. Kelley was fabulous, very friendly & helpful. It was my husband & 2 kids. The unit was very clean and had everything we needed to enjoy our vacation. Down to beach towels & umbrellas. The grounds were well kept & grass & plants all very beautiful. We took so many lovely pictures. The pool was good size & was over 8ft deep which was awesome! This pool was super clean & they maintained it like that the 4 days I was there. The patio area perfect & the other renters were so friendly & nice. We had great times on the beach & pool making new friends & my 5yr old daughter made a new friends & everyone was so willing to talk with us & have fun!! Kelley , again was just great. The beach was just as I imagined it, not crowded at all. I cannot wait to rent next year. This time we are bringing even the in laws!!"

Runway Blue is a Beautiful Unique Island location, perfect for familly vacation,Relaxing,Quiet,fun
"My wife and I decided to take our entire family on vacation this year. We were searching for something different and no one would forget. In July 2015 the group (wife and I,4 kids,2 son-in-laws,1 boy friend,2 1/2 grand kids) traveled from Jacksonville Florida and rented both houses of Runway Blues from July 4-July 11 2015. After reviewing the pictures and looking at other reviews in advance we were still very happily surprised with the quality of the homes. I was originally stressed about the process of checking in at the North Captiva Island club but it was so simple. All our belongs were safely packaged, shipped and delivered to our homes perfectly. Next stress reliever was seeing Runaway Blues caretaker Tom at the dock waiting on us with transportation ready to go. I cant say enough about Tom's knowledge of the island and the help he provided us. THANK You so much Tom. Next I will say how happy I was that we arranged our food provisioning with Sandies Grocery. The process of figuring out what you need can be challenging but once that is done and you see all your food in the fridge when you arrive, any service fee that Sandies requires is well worth it. I would recommend bringing as much as you can in your totes of things like soda, beer, alcohol, lotion, etc as it is expensive on the island. You can get last minute basic items at Mango's but the selection is small and it is expensive. ($20 for a 12 pack of beer) Regarding what we did on vacation, we spent our time on the beach's (either end of the runaway,one public beach) and at the Island club pools. During our time at the beach we saw many dolphins as well as many types of fish. We also spent a lot of time using the golf carts to explore the island as its unique beauty is hard to explain. I highly recommend spending some time doing that... Unique to the homes around the airport is watching the planes take off and land which occurred at least 1 or 2 per day. I like the fact that as some point the island will max out on development so it will hopefully maintain some if its old Florida look and feel. Overall the value was good considering we have 11 people staying for 7 nights. If you take into account food and all other associated expenses, our stay on North Captiva was comparable to staying in other places in Florida. I don't know if I will bring everyone back, my wife and I are already planning a return visit. I wish I could own property on the island."

"While visiting family on Longboat Key, we stayed at this charming house with all the amenities of home. We enjoyed our morning coffee out on the deck and watched the local people go off to work! Walking across the street to Mar Vista Restaurant was also fun. We will definitely be staying here again."
