Guestbook comments from the owner

As Florida residents, we have pretty much tried it all! From our first conversations with the owners right through the sad moment we had to leave, this was nothing but the BEST vacation ever! Brian and Charm are lovely people and soooo very helpful! I literally unpacked two boxes after speaking with them one last time before we left for this island getaway because they had everything there except our groceries! A lovely welcome basket awaited us...a very unexpected gesture. The home is clean, beautiful, spacious, and the views are spectacular! The private pool is lovely and all the amenities...just so inviting and convenient! We kayaked (kayaks provided) in the gulf and the bay, saw so much in the mangroves...shark, fish, manatee. We fished, hiked among the tortoise, owls, birds, etc. , shelled, swam, and just plain relaxed. The golf cart takes you anywhere you want to go on the island, including a couple of neat "Jimmy Buffet" style restaurants. No cars or even paved roads. Ferry ride to and from the island was quick and easy. We plan to make this an annual event. This retreat will quickly become our home away from home. We have been telling all of our family and friends about it. So you'd better book fast! I recommend it for families, retirees, girl's weekend, guys' getaway. We are still talking about it! Thanks again, Charm and Brian, for sharing your home with us.

Amazing: house, owners, location

  • 5 of 5

We have been to North Captiva island 3 times. The island is a perfect getaway for a family looking to reconnect and enjoy the ocean. This island is graced with dolphins, manatees, turtles and incredible birds. Charm and Brian make this house the one you want to rent. They are incredibly helpful in planning the trip and they have thought of everything you need within the house as well. The pool is awesome. My three kids - 12,10, and 8- were in it a lot and I didn't have to worry as shade abounds at various points in the day. The beach is a very short walk away down a sandy path. We followed a turtle down the path several times. The ocean is swimmable most of the time with shelling galore and dolphins to be viewed multiple times/day. We found the house to be perfect! The beds are comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked. A/C is great and the music system is an added joy. I would highly recommend renting this house for its incredible features and location. But, the owners really make it the best!

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect vacation home for our stay on North Captiva. We plan to stay again. The owners were super friendly and easy to work with. The house was perfectly set up for our family with lots of activities for the kids, pool, bikes, kayaks, games, beach chairs. There's almost no reason to leave the house...except for the fact that there is a beautiful beach a few hundred yards away.

Perfect place in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house, pool & all the amenities. Charm thought of everything. It was great to have the kayaks we got to hang with the dolphins & manatees. It really was a terrific vacation couldn't get the kids out of the pool. So peaceful & quiet -no cars! And the most beautiful sunsets & sunrises! We definitely will be back!!!

January Escape at Ka Hale Kai

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific stay at Ka Hale Kai in January 2017. Charm and Brian are welcoming and great to work with. Their home is comfortable, well laid out and has a nice beach house vibe. The open living area is on the upper floor along with a lovely screened porch perfect for relaxing and watching the ospreys. The heated salt water pool is a delight and is surrounded by a nicely landscaped outdoor area with plenty of shade. Thanks for sharing your wonderful home! We hope to be back!

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We rent vacations homes on a regular basis and this home was exceptional! It was fully equipped and then some. The owners made sure we were comfortable and informed on how everything worked so all we did was unpack and enjoy this beautiful home. We could not have asked for more in a home and will be back again very soon.

BEST VACATION EVER!

  • 5 of 5

I usually don't write reviews but I couldn't pass this one up. This house is truly a one of a kind. The process of renting was so easy working with Charm and Brian. They were prompt with all correspondence and made certain that we had all the information we needed to travel to/from the island. They were there to greet us as we departed the Island Girl Ferry with bright smiles on their faces. They took us to their home and showed us all there was to know regarding the house/pool/tv/bose radio, etc. The pictures are accurate but SO much better in person. This house has a unique charm that invites you to the island. It makes you feel happy! Charm has done a fabulous job decorating the house. The bedding was fantastic - super comfortable beds and pillows. They also provided big and plush beach towels for us to use. Charm and Brian provided so much that you really only had to bring a few clothes, swimsuits and food. The rest was provided. How wonderful is that????? Oh, I almost forgot about the wonderful welcome basket that they had for us upon our arrival. My boys thought the Easter bunny arrived early!

The screened in porch was my favorite place to sit. We had all our meals outside - enjoying the sounds of the island.

The outdoor area at this house was a hit for the entire family. Our children absolutely LOVED the pool. It was larger than the pictures showed and super clean. It was also nice to have a salt water pool instead of chlorine! The pool deck had many lounge chairs for the entire family to enjoy either the sun or shade. The boys also enjoyed the Tiki Toss game and dart board. We had fantastic family bike rides with the assortment of great bikes they had available for their guests.

The island had so many great things to do: hikes through the nature preserve, kayaks (again, provided for by Charm and Brian), shelling, fishing, dolphin and manatee watching, and the most amazing beaches.

It was such a privilege for us to share this wonderful house. I felt as if it was my own. I was so sad to leave which isn't usually the case. This was a vacation were I was able to enjoy every minute with my family. Those days are so hard to come by that I will forever be grateful for the wonderful week we had here. I would have booked another week with Charm if I had known my children's school/sport schedule for next year. If you are looking for a clean, peaceful and relaxing place to stay look no further. This is it!
