Absolutely amazing

  • 5 of 5

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!

AMAZING property for our family reunion

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: 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!

Sea Oats was Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

Sea Oats was a perfect choice for our recent college mini-reunion of 15 guys. We had plenty of space, with no more than 2 to a room and the amenities were fantastic - pool, kayaks, fishing guides came to the dock, basketball and tennis court, golf cart to beach across the road. Chef Galvin prepared two of our meals to a gourmet standard. Highly recommend Sea Oats!

Owner's Response: Hello Rob, Thank you for posting your wonderful review and feedback! It was truly our pleasure to host your group's college mini reunion! We are thrilled your group found our estate spacious and enjoyed Sea Oats amenities! Having access to Captiva's bay and Gulf sides, as you know, allows our guests the opportunity to enjoy a multitude of activities from fishing, kayaking, paddle boarding and sunrises on the bay side to swimming, shelling, sunbathing, and sunsets on the Gulf side. Also, we are so happy your group enjoyed Sea Oats personal chef services. Our chefs are wonderful to work with and their food is fantastic!! Again, thank you for your review and recommendation as well as choosing Sea Oats for your group's accommodations! We look forward to seeing your group again soon at Sea Oats.

Absolutley BEAUTIFUL!!!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED this place! The listing descriptions and pictures were right on! So beautiful and tranquil. The layout was amazing, the décor gorgeous, and the amenities were to die for! The property was spotless and everything was in working order. Christine is FAB-U-LOUS - it was like she was a long lost friend - very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. We took advantage of the kayak rentals, had a sunset dolphin cruise that picked us up right from the bay dock in the back yard. Take advantage of the grocery service - that was a god send to have groceries there when we arrived.

We would definitely recommend this property and hope to be back again soon!

Owner's Response: Hi Robin, Thank you for your wonderful review and feedback! We are so happy your group had such a fantastic time at Sea Oats! It was truly our pleasure to host your group and my pleasure getting the opportunity to work with you. I felt like you were long lost friends also :) thank you! We are thrilled you enjoyed the Sunset & Dolphin Cruise, this is always one of our recommended activities while at Sea Oats...as you know, the wildlife is just incredible and the sunsets can't be missed! Also, we are so thrilled you found the grocery service helpful; it can be quite a task shopping for a large group so having this option available, as you know, allows our guests to begin their stay with all your groceries delivered and put away, just prior to your check-in. Again thank you for your review and thank you for recommending our property! We certainly look forward to seeing you all again soon at Sea Oats!

Luxurious and comfortable at the same time!

  • 5 of 5

Best Florida vacation ever! Sea Oats leaves you wanting for nothing! Luxurious and comfortable at the same time. We loved being greeted by the dolphins each morning as we drank our coffee on the dock. The beach is glorious and offers endless seashells!

Owner's Response: Hello Michelle, Thank you for sharing your review and feedback! We truly enjoyed hosting your group at Sea Oats. Thank you for being our guest! We are thrilled you had the "best Florida vacation ever" and that you found Sea Oats to be luxurious and comfortable! The dolphins are definitely a wonderful way to wake up each morning; watching them in their natural environment. We are fortunate in that Captiva is one of only two places in the world that are home to a bottle-nose dolphin population year-round . Even the dolphins don't want to leave Captiva! :) We hope you found many beautiful shells to take home from our "glorious" beach and we look forward to seeing your group at Sea Oats again soon!
