We enjoyed every moment. Great location, breathtaking sunrises from the screened in porch, & dolphins going by all day long. We are already looking forward to next year's vacation.
Great location, Great property
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is excellent, great views of the bay, easy walk into town to restaurants, food stores and the beaches. Property is well maintained, very nice common area, kitchen, bedrooms and screened porch. Nice pool and spa to relax in. We would do this again
Could not have been better!
We were blessed to celebrate 33 years of marriage at Gearing Down Dec 9-16. Karen made reserving the house super easy ... even when UPS lost the package containing the keys for us to get in the house. The home was just perfect! We have never stayed on the Bay, but it was fabulous! A golf cart (rented from YOLO) made it easy-peasy to scoot to the Gulf in about three minutes to catch sunset each and every night. Each morning brought an awesome sunrise over the Bay. It was just amazing. Thank you Youngs for the hospitality and the anniversary gift upon our arrival. We hope to return very soon!
Beautiful property for a relaxing vacation
Very well kept, awesome location, loved it.
Bayside property does NOT disappoint!
This was our fifth vacation on Captiva which has captured our hearts and become our favorite destination. This was the first time renting a home instead of staying at a resort, and this property is fantastic. Only able to get it because someone else had to cancel their standing annual reservation, and it was an amazing stroke of luck for us. The home is beautiful, very well maintained, and really comfortable. I had some concerns about staying on the bay side (all previous stays on island were in cottages on the gulf side on the beach) but the sunrises were amazing and the property is far enough along the bay that you look across at open water. Great appliances, wonderful washer and dryer, commercial ice machine was a huge surprise and much appreciated. Pool and hot tub are fantastic. Internet connection was a bit quirky for brief periods of time, but was fine most of the time with good connection speeds. Can't say enough good things about this place or the owners. Definitely hope to be back again sometime!
This was the fourth home on Captiva that my family and I have rented. It was our favorite for sure! Not only is the home itself beautiful, but it is in a perfect location. We didn't need to rent a golf cart this year...easy walk to everything we needed. The bay views are so peaceful. We sat on the dock every morning and watched manatee and dolphin swim by. We caught 13 different species of fish right off the dock. We enjoyed the pool everyday. It was an easy walk to the village for restaurants or to the beach for walks and sunsets. You won't be disappointed with this home, and the owners are kind and responsive.
