                                                              The house was fantastic and had everything we needed for our stay on North Captiva. Really well kept and exceeded our expectations. North Captiva is very quaint and a great spot to spend some quality time with the family on the beach.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              It always make me feel good when my guests enjoy the island and their stay at Island Paradise. Look forward to having you back.

                                                              True Luxury Get-Away

                                                              This was our second trip to North Captiva and it exceeded our expectations. The pictures of the property do not do it justice. We loved being on the edge of the preserve with the sounds of nature and the unobstructed views of the sunrise and sunset. Everything in the house was excellent. We grilled out a few nights and took advantage of the gourmet kitchen on other evenings. My teenagers were thrilled with the accommodations and being able to get to and from the beach with ease. Darryl was very accessible and communicated well regarding the features of the house. If you like to fish, this is absolutely where you want to stay, with easy access to the beach, fish cleaning station, and downstairs refrigerator. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to a return trip.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              We always want our guests to enjoy their stay, and I can see that you found the beauty and essence of Island Paradise. The views, amenities and privacy are like no other on the Island. I look forward to your return. Thanks Darryl

                                                              Exceptional 5-Star Property

                                                              Mike R.

                                                              This property exceeded our expectations for a 5-star property: Exceptional finishes, excellent location and more amenities than expected. Not only is the home superb, but the view from the deck off the kitchen and living room was unexpectedly one of my favorite aspects of the property (we watched the sunrise and osprey flying over the preserve each morning and the sunset over the gulf each evening). The owner provided excellent advice on everything from transportation to "must see" experiences. And North Captiva is a special place, uncrowded even during the busy Christmas/New Years Holiday season. We would recommend this home to anyone interested in staying on North Captiva and hope to return very soon.

                                                              Reading your review I can see that you and your family really enjoyed my home and the island. It was our pleasure having you as guest and look forward to your return trip in the future. Thanks Darryl

                                                              Very Welcoming and Tremendous Home

                                                              Shannon K.

                                                              First of all, as a family we have vacationed on South Captiva 6 times in the past and North Captiva is a totally different experience. This trip took a bit more planning to get on the island, and the Damico's were very helpful in explaining the process and it was truly an adventure. Getting on the island was really no big deal and the local grocery store was very prepared for us when we arrived to pick up our groceries. So with that said, don't let the ferry or getting on the island intimidate you~ we did it with 4 kids ranging in age from 15-1.

                                                              Our host/owner of the property was very attentive and offered us a personal touch of service helping to get us off the ferry and to the house on day one. They were very inviting and explained everything on the island so thoroughly. They have an elevator which would make for a perfect stay for someone unable to climb stairs. We whipped up so many delicious meals in the very well stocked kitchen while viewing perfect sunsets off the balcony. We only ate out one time while we were there. The 2 dishwashers and 2 washer/dryers made for quick and easy clean up and laundry turn over you really need at the beach. Pack light!

                                                              We fished, shelled, swam, ate, relaxed and had an amazing time!

                                                              The club pool is perfect for families and was actually quiet and not over crowded one bit. It will be a life long memory for our family! I highly recommend this property for a secluded beach vacation.


                                                              Nancy H.

                                                              I would give this beautiful home ten stars if it was an option!

                                                              I've visited and stayed in several homes on Upper/North Captiva Island, this place is beyond compare.

                                                              The fabulous gourmet kitchen, the perfectly appointed bedrooms and baths, the amazing sunrise and sunset views, our stay was, to say the least, outstanding!

                                                              There were six people in our party, age range, twenty-six to sixty-four, each one enjoyed this home and the surroundings immensely!

                                                              The owners are wonderful to work with and very accommodating.

                                                              This is a beautiful, quality home with every attention to detail! The views are amazing! The kitchen is the heart of the home and a chef's dream kitchen. My family and I enjoyed this home so much that I would be tempted to have this floor plan built for my own. We especially enjoyed the gas fire place while enjoying views of the gulf. The elevator was very helpful in getting provisions and luggage up. The best beach on the island is very close by. This home is located on the very best spot of north Captiva. If you are looking for a quality home with unobstructed views you will be happy here!
