Spacious. Great location.Private with lovely greenery providing a physical buffer from neighbors.

  • 4 of 5

For a three generation family of 11 the house provided privacy as well as great communal space. One negative, however , is that some of the mechanical systems were a bit difficult to manage.You should bring your own sound system for music as none is provided, including speakers.

The pool and hot tube were delightful and became the center of family activity.The elevator was a real bonus for the old folks and for schlepping luggage and groceries.

The location of the house allowed us to be within a short walk to the beach and local shops and restaurants.

Beautiful house...but there were issues

  • 1 of 5

WIFI connection was intermittent, hot tub did not heat up, tv reception in bedrooms was poor and in one bedroom did not work at all, light bulbs burnt out throughout the house, ant issues in kitchen and one bedroom, power went out in downstairs bedroom with no access to breaker box. We took it all in stride until the coffee pot malfunctioned. Our call to maintainence was never returned. Luckily Hurricane Irma arrived and we evacuated that day. Captiva is a beautiful island and we enjoyed the area. With such a major investment in a vacation arrangements, I would check out royalshell for more options.

Owner's Response: I most definitely take offense to this review. In fact every issue mentioned either did not exist, was operator error or could have been corrected with a phone call. The hot tub works flawlessly and merely requires the push of 1 button to heat up (operator error?) it is part of what is called a pool/spa combo and is heated to 88 degrees until you push the "spa" button, it then rises to 102 degrees, The entire house is wired with dish network in all the bedrooms and common rooms and has the exact same crystal clear connections throughout the home (operator error?) if they push a wrong button on the remote the system will not work properly until the correct channel is once again activated. Prior to each and every checkin the entire home is inspected for cleanliness, tvs are tested, internet is checked and we look for burnt bulbs, if any are found they are replaced on the spot. An ocassional ant will be found in any home in SW Florida, despite the monthly Truly Nolen Pest control the home receives. The gfi outlet did trip in the downstairs bathroom, and as in all houses was totally accessible and just required the push of the reset button to work again, by the way if it had been a breaker they are totally accessible right in the laundry room on the main floor of the home. The kitchen has 3 coffee makers, 2 are drip style and 1 is Keurig type, all of which still appear to be working fine (operator error). The real problem I have with this slanderous review is that they never once called "maintainence", aka me, with any issues, questions or complaints. I personally handle all the maintainence for my home and live just a few miles away. So if any problems really did arise I could have and would have responded immediately. I feel that these people are just trying to vent due to the fact that they chose to depart a couple days early due to the potential of a hurricane arrival the following week. I feel bad that they might have struggled with a few amenities or if they did not understand how to operate the Hot Tub, the TVs, or a simple GFI outlet but I could have helped them with all of these things in seconds if they had just made a single phone call or text to me. In fact the only time I ever heard from them was a text telling me how wonderful the home was but they were heading out a couple of days early due to the impending storm. Never a single complaint, question, or mention of any issues whatsoever. Shame on you Jodi for posting such a false review!!!!

Excellent, large rental home!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our yearly friend, couple reunion. The house was well furnished, in great shape as expected, and totally met our needs. A big plus was the ease of using working TV's upstairs and downstairs to watch our Cubbies win the World Series. Yay! This house was a terrific rental, close to the gulf beach and Pine Island Sound. We rented a golf cart which was fun and convenient for transporting fishing equipment, chairs, and the umbrella to the beach! I should mention WIFI access was easy, but unsecured by password.

60th Wedding Anniversary vacation at Cabo Wabo for my mother and father in law

  • 5 of 5

Dear Bill,

Regarding our stay at your Luxury home Cabo Wabo in Captiva Island Florida. My inlaws, my wife an I and the rest of the family would truly like to express what a BEAUTIFUL home you have and what a wonderful time we had on our vacation mainly because of your Luxury Rental Home. We rented it at my suggestion (after 2 months of research of homes on Captiva to meet the whole family needs) to stay there for their 60th wedding anniversary. The house is beautiful from the moment we arrived. The home is AMAZING. It was fully furnished spacious. Every room is beautiful and comfortable. All the stores, restaurants and beach is a 2 to 4 minute walk away. My in-laws loved the convenience of using the elevator and that is one of the main reasons I chose your home besides from all of the above mentioned. You personally were always easy to contact and communicate with and a true professional when it came to anything about your home. As I can see how you run your business.

With 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, beautiful fully equipped gourmet kitchen, washer & dryer, game room, pool and jacuzzi you never really needed to leave the home. The beds were very comfortable, the game room kept the family occupied and the pool was heavenly! Having stuff in the garage for your guests to use for the beach was also a great idea. I would just like to say that I walked the island and by far your home was the most beautiful and best value for the money. I hope to rent it out in the near future and I will highly recommend it to my friends anytime they want to stay on Captiva Island. And I have to say my mother and father were the happiest I have ever seen them! Thank you so much for making their 60th Wedding Anniversary a special one.

We look forward to renting it again in the near future.
