After doing much research, I believe we found the perfect family vacation at the Abaco Beach Villas. The location is at the quiet end of the Island. Short walks to just about everything. I booked directly with the owners (Susan and Peter) who live nearby and greet you personally. I cannot imagine what else they could do to better cater to families.
The unit we stayed in was complete with a full kitchen (including dishwasher), washer and dryer. All dishes, silverware, and cups were provided. There were three televisions and a DVD player. The beachfront pool has umbrella tables and gas barbeque grills for cooking out. They even had a fishing pier and boat docks on the island side.
We rented jet skies next door at the Peach Shell Resort and took the Island Tour from the mainland to Captiva Island. Lots of interesting food choices in the nearby Times Square area.
