Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a fantastic time on North Captiva Island and the weather was beautiful. We LOVED your house.....It was a great layout and served Scott, myself, and the dogs well. In NC my husband has allergies so we can't have the windows open but during our stay at your house, we had the sliding doors & windows open the entire stay and always had a breeze. We enjoyed the pool every day and wanted for nothing in the house. Actually, your house is the best furnished and stocked house that we have ever stayed in! One item that could be improved would be the golf cart as it is very temperamental in reverse and then getting into drive. Jeff let us know about this so we were prepared but the cart was a bit challenging to drive....with this said... We will absolutely return to Reel Paradise. N. Captiva is a hidden gem with nothing to do but be outside enjoying nature away from all the hubbub of life.

Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Awesome home in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

The home was gorgeous and very well maintained. (There were a few small signs of wear, but it's someone's lived in house and it didn't bother us at all!) The pool was wonderful and we enjoyed having our own private tiki bar. We were able to take our two dogs, and really liked that the home was all tile flooring. The home sits near the airstrip, and we enjoyed watching planes take off and land every day. We really appreciated that the owners thought of the little things like a wine cooler. We also appreciated the documents that told us numbers to call in case of an emergency, restaurants to eat at, and general info about the house along with two island maps. The home came with two golf carts which we used daily. My future mother in law flew down last minute, and Beulah (property manager on the island) was very accommodating working with us to allow her to stay!

The island itself is stunning! We saw dolphins several times while on the island (including our boat ride back to the mainland!) This was by far the best vacation we have taken (and we've both taken many!) We're already planning our next trip back!

Perfect stay from pre arrival communication with the owners to the warm island greeting by Beulah & Autumn at the dock to a well maintained home, pool and golf cart! The kitchen is well stocked, includes everything you need for cooking even a wine cooler! The outdoor spaces (screened & decked) are numerous, plenty of comfortable outdoor furniture to sit as a group or find a quiet spot to read/sun. We enjoyed the privacy of the Tiki Bar/ pool and the owners spared no expense, providing a great gas grill! Wonderful property, perfect vacation...counting the months until we can return!

FYI, bring more food & less clothes😎
