An unsurpassed vacation at an exceptional home, Latitude Adjustment. A most relaxing & satisfying stay --- perhaps, the best ever -- for several reasons:
1) The house is very large & well designed with spacious rooms, modern kitchen & laundry, multiple bedrooms each with a bath, a large combined living & dining room with access to a large screen porch with dining table & chairs for watching the sunrise during breakfast or for a relaxing dinner with peace & quiet after a day of fishing, boating, shelling, beach-walking, bicycling, swimming or just reading/snoozing in the hammock or beach chairs. A second screened porch can be entered from the ground floor and has ping-pong, a hockey table, and an entrance into the ground floor of the house with wet-bar, an electronic video-game console and more bedrooms & baths. All-in-all, more than one might expect under one roof !!!
2) The amenities & furnishings are exceptional and make life easy, comfortable & convenient. Kitchen equipped with new stove, oven, broiler, microwave, large refrigerator & freezer, two different styles of coffee-makers, and a complete array of silverware, knives, pots & pans make for effortless cooking. An extensive set of glassware, dishes, cups, glasses plus serving & cooking/Pyrex glassware make great meals easy & enjoyable --- as they should be on vacation. Laundry was convenient with side-by-side new front-loading washer & dryer. Multiple flat-screen TVs throughout the house made entertainment and keeping abreast on the news enjoyable for guests of all ages. Sleeping was a real treat because of new beds and very high-quality bed linens. Bathrooms were clean & well equipped with showers/tubs, sinks & toilets.
3) The grounds invited outdoor resting & relaxing on colorful chairs & hammock or activities on the new pier/dock extending out into the bay. The fishing pier/dock is undoubtedly the highlight of the property for anyone with an interest in salt-water fishing --- whether to catch fish of several types (snook, snapper, grouper, black drum, lady fish) or just to watch fish swimming in the clear water --- especially at night when underwater lights attract fish to the pier/dock. We were fortunate to have lessons from the North Captiva Fishing Lady on the pier/dock and quickly caught many fish --- some for "catch & release" and some for filleting & cooking. This was a wonderful experience because the North Captiva Fishing Lady was knowledgeable about fishing in the area, and she quickly cleaned & filleted fish for cooking on the grill close to the screened porch.
4) The owners were very attentive to every need, question and detail and responded quickly to make the vacation perfect !!! The North Captiva Island Club Staff were responsive & friendly. It was a real joy not to have autos on the Island, but to tool-around on electric golf-carts to the swimming pool, restaurants, the nature preserve to see turtles & birds, and to the Gulf of Mexico beaches with pristine white sands and remarkably few people. Because the Island is small and crisscrossed with many sandy roads, all locations can be reached quickly by golf-carts. The golf-carts are easily recharged by plugging-in at the House driveway.
All-in-all, for those wanting a warm weather get-away in a quiet place with beautiful uncrowded beaches on the Gulf side and ideal fishing on the Bay side, North Captiva Island is the place. When one adds a large well-designed & well-equipped house with every amenity & device needed for nearly effortless living, you have a perfect exemplary vacation at Latitude adjustment !!!!
This house and its location did NOT disappoint. Bed linens were very soft and cozy. The house had all the necessary gadgets, TVs and great wifi. My husband enjoyed the dock to its fullest extent. It would be after 11 pm and he would still be out there, seemingly not able to get enough. So many different fish, egrets, pelicans, stingray and manatees. We sat on the back screened in porch (with ceiling fans) every morning watching the sunrise, drinking coffee and saw dolphins swimming by on more than one occasion. The two golf carts really made it easy for our family to do different things/explore different parts of the island if we wanted. This is a great family-friendly rental.
We had the best vacation ever at Latitude Adjustment on North Captiva Island. It was hard leaving our vacation home and having to return home. After touring the island during our visit, my family and I all agreed that we chose the best home on the island. The owners spared no expense in equipping their home with the best quality amenities. We felt pampered in luxury.
I'd have to say that the best thing about the home were the spectacular sunrises every morning and the fantastic water view throughout the day. But, everything was great, including the patio spaces, fishing dock, games, great room, kitchen, etc.
We felt at home from the moment we arrived on the grounds of the property.
Just returned from 5 lovely days on North Captiva with my 3 kids, 25, 21 and 16. Island is lovely… quite stunning beaches, incredibly relaxing, no cars, no crowds, just perfect. Water was perfectly warm, sunrises and sunsets spectacular. Driving around on golf carts beats traffic jams everyday! Even having to take a small ferry to get there adds to the magic of the island.
Had the pleasure of staying at Latitude Adjustment. House is truly wonderful, in an amazing beachfront location with its own private jetty, where we spent many hours learning how to fish. Waking up to a perfect sunrise without having to move from the master bedroom, having breakfast watching the small boats passing close by and dinner in the screened in porch after the beautiful sunset.. perfect really. Taking a lovely long walk on the truly white sand beach every morning became the perfect way to while a way an hour or so before breakfast.
The house itself is great. Incredibly spacious, in wonderful condition, but still homely, helped I think by the lovely artwork on the walls, the perfect personal touches everywhere throughout. Beds super comfortable, lovely crisp white linens, incredibly well equipped kitchen, bathrooms and closets all spacious. All the appliances were brand new, and the highly efficient washing machine & tumble drier came incredibly handy.
Joe was always a pleasure to deal with, very responsive and really helpful. Would throughly recommend Joe and Latitude Adjustment.
Thank you for making this short trip very special.
Beautiful property with tons of amenities! My family thoroughly enjoyed staying here. The kids loved playing ping-pong and foosball. The screened in porches were fantastic for evenings outside. The kitchen is fully stocked. At our group max, the house comfortably slept 8 adults and 3 kids and we never felt crowded. We will definitely return for more fun memories!
