Good time on the Island and the shells were amazing. Weather ended up bad on the last day...fun!
The house needed some general overall upkeep. Hot tub didn’t work which we really looked forward to using. The golf cart that came with the house was in poor condition and ended up paying $250 extra for another because of the size of our group but it was junk. Not worth the price. With some updating the house would be great considering it is right on the beach and has great views. Be sure to take LOTS of water because the well water being so close to the beach was sulfuric and salty. The house has really great potential but it’s just missing some TLC. Much thanks to Kalanie and Becca who are the new caretakers who made arriving at North Captiva smooth.
Thank you for your review and glad that you had a good time; what a storm during your stay, (almost a hurricane!) The newly completed well system just installed is a permanent correction and we now have fresh water again with a guarantee.
Newly purchased golf cart, new furniture and new replacement piano key ivories are additional improvements for this spectacular home.
We thank you again for your suggestions. Owners, Curt and Stephanie
Awesome home for forever memories
Tremendous house. Back story... we are the three (remaining) sisters. Momma was born and raised on the local islands. Actually went to school on Cayo Costa in a school boat. We were blessed to have her 93 years, she passed this August. Two years ago, I (youngest daughter) took Mom and my daughter to North Captiva island. Mom made me promise to take all the "girls" back because this was the closest she had seen to her childhood and her wonderful memories.
Honestly, this house was way too big for just three ladies. A really bad problem to have! Sitting at the dining table, surrounded by nothing but water...it really doesn't get any better than that. Everything was spotless, a very comfortable home with views unsurpassed.
The caretakers met us at the marina, provided all instructions, answered all questions and were a joy to meet. We went fishing/shelling with Captain Richie three days and had a blast. Honestly, could not have had a better experience with the home or with Captain Richie.
The ONLY problem with the house... we need to make a week longer than 7 days. Ten to fifteen days would be great...might mess up a few calendars, but I won't tell if you don't.
Thank you, owners, and The Prices for letting us share this wonderful experience with Lois's three daughters.
Mom, promise kept.
re: the Big on the Beach House.....Thank you for your kind review!.....Families love this house! Visit again soon! Thanks, Curt and Stephanie
On the Beach
We had a lovely stay at Big on the Beach on North Captiva. Our party of 13 slept comfortably and enjoyed a nice Thanksgiving holiday. Hosts Richie and Paula helped us plan our trip, stock the house with groceries, and get settled after taking the ferry from Pineland. The house couldn't be any closer to the ocean and has expansive views of the water. It was well appointed with towels, beach towels, beach chairs, kayaks, bikes, and a stocked kitchen able to handle cooking Thanksgiving dinner. Highlights of our trip included dinner at Over the Water restaurant (highly recommend) and our sightseeing trips to Cabbage Key on Captain Richie's boat. As native Floridians we'd never been to North Captiva but we had a wonderful time on this charming little island.
vacation in paradise......
What an awesome house. We were greeted by Paula with a island smile and welcoming attitude. We have vacationed on the island for 19 years. We have stayed in a variety of beach front homes but none compare with the view and access to the beach as this house. Three steps and your on the beach with full use of beach chairs, kayaks and sand toys for the kids. Inside there is a view of the gulf from every room and ample furnishings. exploring the island there are turtles, manatees, alligators, starfish, stingrays, dolphins and yes snakes... At the end of a long day there is a hot tub to relax in. So much more I could add. It is just a great place to stay....
Perfect for large groups!
We've stayed in numerous homes on the island over the years, but have typically had to get a couple different houses to accommodate our group. This year we wanted to be directly on the beach and all be together, so Big on the Beach was perfect for us! November is our adults only trip and we booked for 12 people and had plenty of room for everyone. The house is not as luxurious as some of the others on the island, but it is completely comfortable, spacious, very clean and great for gathering everyone together or taking time to yourself. One of the best features is being directly on the beach and not having to lug chairs, umbrellas, coolers, etc., on golf carts then down to the beach. So much easier to just walk out your door. Also, we never once turned on the A/C due to the constant ocean breeze. We merely left doors and windows open and the sound of the surf at night, was absolutely my favorite part! Keep in mind, the amount of beach fluctuates frequently on the island. We were lucky and had plenty of beach in front of the house, but I have seen the water up to the house at other times. That's probably the only issue that may effect your trip, if you're expecting to walk right out your door and land on the beach. I would highly recommend Big on the Beach for a wonderful experience and must include the caretakers as part of the reason your trip will exceed your expectations. Capt. Richie and Paula went out of their way to make sure we had an exceptional time and take such great care of the property. Thank you all for another great trip to the island!!!
We are so happy everyone had a great time! We love this house too!
My extended family and I just spent the last week at Big on the Beach. Talk about a dream vacation! It really doesn't get any better than this! The house was perfect for our very large group, including kids ranging from 3 to 18. The house was spacious and everyone had plenty of room. It was nice and very comfortable but not luxurious- which is exactly what we were looking for! The layout is functional with 4 of the bedrooms downstairs and 2 upstairs. Our family loved to congregate upstairs in the evenings in the large open floor-plan consisting of a family room and kitchen. The very best reason we loved this house was the location! It was literally ON the beach just steps from the ocean. The view from every window in the house was spectacular. The sunsets were magnificent from this location and we experienced all kinds of wildlife, including, pelicans, rays, fish, dolphins, osprey, and even a manatee in front of the house! We also especially loved the many balconies and screened in porches. Mainly, it was so convenient not to have to lug all of our stuff to and fro and to be able to access the house throughout the day, especially with the small children. The house came with 2-3 beach umbrellas, 11 chaise lounges, 3 kayaks, a golf cart, and 2 bicycles. All were utilized and very much appreciated!
The island itself is lots of fun! If you like tranquility and the simple life, North Captiva is for you. We enjoyed the beach club for the pools and the pool bar/cafe'. (I highly recommend the Blue Crab Burrito!!) We visited there frequently just to catch sightings of the manatees at the boat slips. It truly was the best vacation ever! We are already planning a return trip!!
This home comes with the North Captiva Island Club membership. There are 2 pools located at the club with a pool tiki bar, goumet restaurant, island store, tennis courts, kayaks and bikes
