This very clean home is in a beautiful location and lived up to all my expectations. From the views anywhere in the home to the very accommodating and relaxing deck and all the extra conveniences the owners have placed in and around the home. My best experience renting on the Island. The home speaks for itself and I can't say enough about the Owners. The entire family was very helpful and friendly from start to finish. Had a wonderful family vacation and would love to visit every year if possible.
Our family of 6, plus grandma all enjoyed the luxury of Sea Urchins on North Captiva. Windows with views everywhere. Stars lit up the night! We paddleboarded and kayaked in front of the house seeing dolphins, manatee, pelicans, etc. all day, everyday. The water was calm with a no wake area to safely swim or kayak without boats flying by, perfect for paddleboards! Didn't have to load anything, just drug equipment a few feet right into the water. Rode bikes on the trails and explored the varity of other beaches with bigger waves and more action/people, but we always came back to our own beach, our family's favorite. All to ouselves most of the time. While others paid $35 an hour or more for kayaks, bikes, paddleboards, ours were included. Big plus! The exhausted adults could easily see kids on the beach or in the water from the kitchen/living area or from the large porch. Wrap around porch allowed us to spread out for quiet reading areas. I was able to rest/read/cook without worrying where the kids were just by looking out the window. We had a family ping pong tourney on the large deck under the house and played board games, watched Razorback baseball, watched dvds at night on the one day it rained. Was nice to still be outside seeing and hearing the waves and yet be protected from the rain. Kitchen was well stocked with appliances and gadgets. Linens and beach towels provided. Washer/dryer on site allowed us to pack light saving on luggage costs for flight here. We all loved the beach house decor. Beautiful, thoughtful, creative design. Not the usual rental. The best thing was not having to pack and lug everything to the beach as it was all steps away. When we did explore, golf cart was fun change since no cars allowed on North Captiva and 2nd golf cart is available for rental if needed. Outside shower was fun! We all loved watching the handful of small planes that landed/tookoff from the airstrip. So peaceful and quiet on the island! Our gracious host Sandy was helpful with information about how to bring food over by ferry or can take private water taxi service from Pine Island. Was suggested to plan meals for the week as their is no grocery store. Order in advance and the mainland stores will pack perishables in dry ice and have your groceries ready for you when you arrive for the short ferry ride. We did eat out a couple times by the pool area and one day rented a boat to the main island of Captiva where we restocked groceries and ate at the famous Bubble Room. Thank you for sharing your beautiful and very clean home! We wish we could have stayed:)
