My wife and I have lived in Ft Myers, FL going on 15 years. I am a local Realtor, and she is an accountant. We enjoy the sunny warm weather and beautiful beaches the area has to offer. With easy access from Ft Myers, North Captiva is the perfect place for us to get away from the hustle & bustle of every day life and soak up the peace and natural beauty of North Captiva
Owner purchased this House in 2014
Top floor was good, bottom floor not so good
This house has two floors, each floor has its own living space, kitchen and bathroom. The top floor was great! The pool was great! The golf carts were great! Unfortunately, the bottom floor of the house was bad. Real bad. It has a bad palmetto bug problem. So much so that we left a day early. We really needed the two floors of the house and couldn’t handle another night with the roaches. Also, the pull out couch really isn’t an option for sleeping on. We live in Miami and camp, so we understand what comes with island life, but this was too much for us. There were other cleanliness issues with the bottom floor, I could go on. We let Chad know about the bug problem and that we were leaving a day early. He said he would refund the last night, but never did. We also had to ask about getting the damage deposit back which took about a week after check out to get back.
Thanks for the feedback Laura, for the Damage deposit it is held by Homeaway/VRBO the property owner never touches it, so it is also returned by Homeaway. For the last night refund I thought that it had been sent back this is the first I'm hearing it was not on this review, it would have been easier to call or email me.
This property has a year around pest control service and is cleaned before each guest, it is located on an island in the gulf that is over 75% nature preserve and heavily wooded landscape, the roads are even sand. So the nature life is much different then Miami. Summer months can have more bugs around then dryer times of year. I was informed of the issue on the last night of the guest stay, if I would have been informed at the start of the stay the pest service could have looked into it. There is currently no problem with bugs
This house was adorable and suited our family's needs perfectly!
I brought my family of 7 to north captiva island for my sons 13th birthday. One of our best family vacations yet!!! Such a quaint and charming island with only the amenities one truly needs. Chad was a wonderful host and very easy to work with. This island was so peaceful and exactly what we all needed. Dolphins on every beach, manatees as well, eagle rays and more, the nature and scenery were amazing. Can't wait to go back!!
We had so much fun!!! We loved it
We wanted to go somewhere with our family where we could relax, fish, and spend time not worrying about anything, and this was the perfect place. North Captiva Island was amazing. The house owner was very easy to work with, and helped us with all of our needs. The house is a nice beach house with a pool, which it was the perfect for us because all the kids wanted to do was swim before and after the beach. The house had a lot of clean towels, sheets, pillows and more. We had some issues with the air conditioning and golf cart, but the owner responded and fixed them. For those people that love coconuts like us, this is a great place because they are everywhere so the kids opened many coconuts during our stay. If you are looking to relax and some wiled life experience, this is the place to be. Blue Heaven house was truly a great house. We would love to come back again.
Beautiful Island Paradise
We had a wonderful family vacation in Blue Heaven! Chad was so great to work with in getting us set up for a fun and relaxing vacation. We took advantage of the beach which was only a short walk away, swimming in the warm pool at night and golf cart rides for ice cream at Barnacles each day. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and lots of extra spices, etc. which was helpful when cooking meals. Plenty of towels and a nice screened porch where we ate all meals outside. We would rate it 5 stars if the mattress in the main bedroom was comfortable. It needs replacing but it didn't ruin our vacation by any means! We also enjoyed the wildlife. We saw lots of birds, manatee, tortoises, lizards and even had a dolphin swim up by shore and flap his tail at us! Thanks for sharing your house with us!
My wife and I were looking for a little alone time for just the two of us and the Blue Heaven was perfect! If you looking for something fancy and upscale then the Blue Heaven might not be the place, but if you are looking for a clean, quiet, relaxing time that will not break the bank the Blue Heaven is a good choice. The pool is small but great, and house is close to the beach and everything else on the island. The only disappointment was that the matteresses were not very comfortable.
Wonderful Family Christmas Vacation on Upper Capti
Our family loved Upper Captiva Island and had a pleasant time staying at Blue Heaven. The house is an older, but comfortable place. Some things were a bit worn down, or rusted by the salt air, but that's to be expected in an island environment, and our family was fine with that. Our kids really enjoyed the small swimming pool when they tired of swimming at the beach.
Our group included my family and my brother's family. The space worked well for us to use the upstairs kitchen for all our meals, but then we each had our own sleeping space and bathrooms on the 2 different floors.
The location is ideal and quiet. There are only 2 other houses on any of the adjacent lots but they were very quiet. It was very quiet in the evenings. Everything was close enough to walk to by foot, and the available golf cart worked well whenever we wanted to ride somewhere.
Our onsite hostess, Pam was wonderful. She met us at the ferry, oriented us to the house and to the island, and we saw her around the island several times during our stay. In fact we went Christmas Caroling together with her and other locals and vacationers.
We hope that it is not long until our family is back to Upper Captiva.
