"My wife, two daughters, my brother's family of 4, and my parents (10 of us total), enjoyed our stay at Moondance. It comfortably slept 10 people with the 4 kids in the two twin bedroom w/trundles, and the three adult couples took the other three rooms. The kitchen was well-equipped, and the home was nicely furnished. The heated pool was kept at a steady 84-85 degrees during our entire stay (which is important as it remains in the shade the majority of the day). The unit came with two golf carts, and all the beach chairs needed to enjoy the beautiful beach areas of the island (where we spent most of our days). The only downside (if there actually had to be one) was having to take a short golf cart ride to the beach access points (which our family enjoyed the experience of). Also, the crow's nest deck on the top of the house provided true panoramic views of the island and the surrounding waters including the Gulf of Mexico and the Intercoastal Waterway. We utilized Island Girl to ferry out, and we were welcomed dockside by the very friendly owner who had a trailer in tow to haul our luggage and groceries to the house for us while giving us a lay of the land tour. The elevator in the home was an added bonus when unloading the luggage upon our arrival, and would benefit anyone needing wheelchair accessibility. We utilized the on island boat rental place for two days to explore surrounding islands, and to grab lunch elsewhere (which is not necessary if staying on the island). We also highly recommend Barnacle Phil's Restaurant and the ice cream shop above it. There were dolphins everywhere on both sides of the island, and the national park on the southern part of the island was an amazing and exhausting walk to the other end of the island. I don't recommend doing it in flip-flops and younger kids. LOL The feeling of being removed from large amounts of people, and a friendly island atmosphere radiated through my mind the entire week. It was a very relaxing and quite vacation. My entire family ALL walked away from the vacation and said that it was the best vacation by far of any that we have taken over the past 12 years together including stays at Captiva Island, various points in the Florida keys, Marco Island, Longboat key, and others. I would highly recommend North Captiva, and Moondance is a beautiful LARGE home for the price."
