Your magical stay is only Captiva away
Are ten stars possible? Because Sea Oats deserves them all. The stars on this review cannot match the stars in my heart after this magical getaway. Upon arrival, Christine gave us an amazing first impression of how loved this home was. She was kind, energetic, positive.. the host you have always hoped for! This home has character in its simplicity and warm details. There is a light to it that captivates you. It was clean, spacious, and open to the nature that surrounded us. Speaking of nature, the landscaping is one you will never forget. The trees are so green and the wildlife is so happy. This home was also equipt with any needs we had, or may have had. The beach is also right across the street! To stop myself from running out of space on this review; my closest friends got married here. It was magical, authentic, and left a mark on my heart. Whether it be a family gathering, wedding, or simply an adventure, you want to explore this experience. I truly look forward to returning one day with my family.
Perfection at its Fullest
Everything about this Estate was magical. The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly and the property is kept in immaculate condition. I had my wedding in the front of the property and my reception in the back and it was pure perfect. We couldn't have asked for a better crew or weekend. Anyone looking to rent this house look no further, nothing else will compare. I cannot say enough about everything. Thank you again for renting this beautiful piece of heaven.
Thank you for sharing your Sea Oats experience! It was truly our pleasure and honor to host your group and wedding at the estate! Your wedding was absolutely gorgeous! Please stay in touch! We hope to see you all again soon at Sea Oats on Captiva!!

Great water access on both sides. Amazing property. Like a huge adult playground.
Not only was the Sea Oats just a beautiful house and at the beautiful location but Christine was so accommodating. I cannot say enough great things. We had our wedding ceremony and reception there and it was originally planned for sept 16,2017 and hurricane Irma had other plans and Christine and Michelle (the estate owner) were more than accommodating to us to make our wedding still happen as planned. The day wedding was just more than we had ever hoped for and our guests had the time of our lives. We can’t wait to go back and relive our special day sometime in the future! Thank you so much!
Thank you so much for your wonderful review and feedback! It was sincerely our pleasure to host your beautiful wedding and your family's accommodations. I was especially thrilled at getting the opportunity to work with you and your family on such a special event. I am so happy we were able to accommodate around Hurricane Irma! :) Thank you again for sharing your Sea Oats experience. We look forward to seeing you all again soon at Sea Oats!

Paradise on the Gulf
Like myself, I don't think any of us expected what we experienced at Sea Oats when we were invited to celebrate my niece Kerry's birthday bash there. It was the ultimate resort padadise and we had it all to ourselves. Every single feature was magnificent, from the beautiful pool (situated in the middle of everything) to the well-equipped kitchen and warm, relaxing rooms to the kayaks by the shore to the comfortable bedrooms with spacious bathrooms to the perfect views of the magnificent Florida sunrises with dolphins splashing in the water. It was a weekend we will always remember. It ranks right up there with any 4-star hotel, except it was more like a large home that made you feel like an invited guest. A perfect spot for any special occasion.
Thank you for your wonderful review and feedback! We are thrilled Sea Oats exceeded your expectations and that you found the estate to be magnificent, accommodating, beautiful, functional, inviting and a "perfect spot for every occasion". We look forward to hopefully seeing your group again soon at Sea Oats! Thank you again!!

AMAZING property for our family reunion
Our extended family (16 adults and 14 children age 4-17) came to Sea Oats for a week long vacation. All of the communication that led up to our stay was extremely detailed and timely. The property was immaculate when we arrived and all amenities were thoroughly explained to us. The pictures and layout of the space were exactly as advertised. The video game/tv room was spacious, there was an extra refrigerator for our use and plenty of space for family meals both inside and outside the house. The pool area had plenty of seating for everyone.
Christine, the manager was wonderful and extremely responsive throughout our stay. We emailed her during our stay for recommendation on activities in the area. We received immediate feedback and phone numbers from her. Christina coordinated an all-day boat excursion to Cayo Costa and lunch on Cabbage Key - Fabulous! The boat picked us up at the property which was extremely convenient since not everyone rented cars for our stay.
Our family took numerous kayak excursions and many bike rides. The property was large enough that the kids spent a lot of time riding up, down and around the driveway. The bikes, kayaks and paddle boards were delivered to the property before we arrived. The golf cart was perfect for transporting chairs, umbrellas and people to the beach. We took many bike rides for coffee in the morning and ice cream in the afternoon. We added 2 bikes to our original order and they were delivered within 30 minutes. We had a bike chain that came off a few times - we made one phone call and the bike was switched out within 30 minutes. Impeccable service!
A welcome basket with S'mores ingredients, a tray of snacks, and our names on individual room tags added nice personalized touches to our stay.
I would HIGHLY recommend this property for a family reunion! Our days involved trips to the beach, bike rides, swimming in the pool, and kayak rides through the mangrove forest. We had a fabulous trip in large part due to all the amenities and layout of Sea Oats.
Hello Sue, Thank you for your detailed and glowing review as well as your recommendation!! It was truly our pleasure to host your family at Sea Oats and it was my pleasure getting the opportunity to work with and meet your group. As you noted, the multitude of activities available at Sea Oats is vast; there is definitely something for everyone to enjoy while at the estate. I'm glad your family enjoyed Sea Oats amenities and saw the sights on beautiful Captiva Island. Bicycle is definitely the most fun way to travel on the islands. I always recommend the group cruise as a "must do" activity; I love that everyone enjoyed that as well! Thank you again for your review and recommendation! We are thrilled everyone enjoyed their stay with us. We look forward to seeing you all again soon at Sea Oats! Sincerely, Christine Harrower Sales, Marketing and Reservations Manager Sea Oats Luxury Estate - Captiva Island, Florida
