  • Had a wonderful stay in Captivation

    "What a great beach house to rent! Our party of 10 (6 adults and 4 children) spent Thanksgiving week in this beautiful home. The ground floor level was a big hit for everyone, especially the kids-swimming pool, darts, ping pong, satellite television, lots of comfy seating, a hammock! Having a bathroom and shower downstairs was great for washing sand off your feet when returning from the beach. The extra refrigerator was much appreciated, with groceries for 10 being brought to the island! The bottom floor (bedroom level) was nicely appointed and very spacious. There was plenty of room for everyone to sleep comfortably. The upper floor (kitchen and living spaces) is huge! It's nicely decorated and we really enjoyed having two seating/lounging areas. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our Thanksgiving dinner. There were board games and playing cards for us to use, which was fun. We were astounded by all of the deck space-our favorites were the porch swing and the "crow's nest", which was perfect to watch both the sunrise and sunset, as well as stargazing at night! The property is beautifully landscaped and backs up to nature preserve land, giving the property extra privacy. We had use of two golf carts during our stay, which was wonderful to make quick trips to get ice cream at Barnacle's or Piña Coladas from the beach bar. The nature Trail was very close to the house, and the beach is a short walk or golf cart ride away. Staying at Captivation was one of our best family vacations to date. We would highly recommend this property-not only is the house fabulous, but Sarah, the realtor, and Duncan and Laurie, property managers, are very responsive to any needs or issues you may have. They all helped make our stay over-the-top wonderful. North Captiva is a great place to visit-we saw manatees, bobcat tracks, gopher tortoises, lots of birds, and tons of dolphins! *At night, be sure to go to the beach and run your hands through the wet sand at the shoreline--you'll see lots of bioluminescent algae-tons of little green sparkles in the sand and water!"

  • Perfect for large groups!

    "We've stayed in numerous homes on the island over the years, but have typically had to get a couple different houses to accommodate our group. This year we wanted to be directly on the beach and all be together, so Big on the Beach was perfect for us! November is our adults only trip and we booked for 12 people and had plenty of room for everyone. The house is not as luxurious as some of the others on the island, but it is completely comfortable, spacious, very clean and great for gathering everyone together or taking time to yourself. One of the best features is being directly on the beach and not having to lug chairs, umbrellas, coolers, etc., on golf carts then down to the beach. So much easier to just walk out your door. Also, we never once turned on the A/C due to the constant ocean breeze. We merely left doors and windows open and the sound of the surf at night, was absolutely my favorite part! Keep in mind, the amount of beach fluctuates frequently on the island. We were lucky and had plenty of beach in front of the house, but I have seen the water up to the house at other times. That's probably the only issue that may effect your trip, if you're expecting to walk right out your door and land on the beach. I would highly recommend Big on the Beach for a wonderful experience and must include the caretakers as part of the reason your trip will exceed your expectations. Capt. Richie and Paula went out of their way to make sure we had an exceptional time and take such great care of the property. Thank you all for another great trip to the island!!!"

  • Serendipity

    "A dream a vacation in a beautiful home with excellent attention by Duncan. This was our third trip to the Island and by far the best! Duncan went above and beyond to smooth out any issues and provide personal attention to get anything we needed. Serendipity was in a perfect location to walk onto the beach or take a short cart ride to the Bayside. The views were breathtaking from the roof top balcony from sunrise to sunset. This home was beautifully decorated and had spacious rooms and decks to accommodate a large group of family and friends! Can't wait to go back!!!"

  • amazing

    "Toni & Mike's place was perfect. Our first time in North Captiva. Toni made it easy. Gave advice beforehand, picked us up at dock, showed us around the island before leaving. We had an amazing week. The house is everything we needed and nothing we didn't. Cozy 2BR/2BA. Quiet & secluded but very close to beach. Deck w grill. Kitchen with everything you need. Linens including beach towels. Washer, dryer. Internet. Outdoor shower. Golf cart. Membership to NCIC (2 pools, hot tub, kayaks, tennis, bikes - all at your disposal). If you are first timers like us, island has enough amenities to get you through if you don't plan perfectly. We plan to return and even started discussing retirement plans..."
