We are a family of six and North Captiva is our favorite place.
We decided to purchase a piece of paradise, and wanted a large home that we could share with friends and family. We found this lovely family-friendly beach house that has everything that we look for in a rental. It is perfect for our large family or multiple families to share. It is even a great getaway for ‘girls trips’!
We hope that you enjoy our home as much as we do.
Sarah Rapp purchased this house in 2016
I was kind of skeptical at first of having to pack all our food ( & with 6 children that tends to be a lot) along with the usual stuff you take on vacation to take on the ferry over. But I have to say it was so worth the initial hassle! The home was beautiful & well supplied with everything we needed in the kitchen & for entertainment for the kids. What I loved most about this home was that it was comfortable ... Not just staged to look good, but had a homey feeling. I did speak with one of the owners after we returned & was impressed to find he was genuinely interested in how our stay was & what could be done to make it better. Not only was the house fabulous, but knowing that the people you're renting from are people of character & morals made it even better! We plan on returning next year!
What a great beach house to rent! Our party of 10 (6 adults and 4 children) spent Thanksgiving week in this beautiful home. The ground floor level was a big hit for everyone, especially the kids-swimming pool, darts, ping pong, satellite television, lots of comfy seating, a hammock! Having a bathroom and shower downstairs was great for washing sand off your feet when returning from the beach. The extra refrigerator was much appreciated, with groceries for 10 being brought to the island!
The bottom floor (bedroom level) was nicely appointed and very spacious. There was plenty of room for everyone to sleep comfortably. The upper floor (kitchen and living spaces) is huge! It's nicely decorated and we really enjoyed having two seating/lounging areas. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our Thanksgiving dinner. There were board games and playing cards for us to use, which was fun.
We were astounded by all of the deck space-our favorites were the porch swing and the "crow's nest", which was perfect to watch both the sunrise and sunset, as well as stargazing at night!
The property is beautifully landscaped and backs up to nature preserve land, giving the property extra privacy.
We had use of two golf carts during our stay, which was wonderful to make quick trips to get ice cream at Barnacle's or Piña Coladas from the beach bar.
The nature Trail was very close to the house, and the beach is a short walk or golf cart ride away.
Staying at Captivation was one of our best family vacations to date. We would highly recommend this property-not only is the house fabulous, but Sarah, the realtor, and Duncan and Laurie, property managers, are very responsive to any needs or issues you may have. They all helped make our stay over-the-top wonderful.
North Captiva is a great place to visit-we saw manatees, bobcat tracks, gopher tortoises, lots of birds, and tons of dolphins! *At night, be sure to go to the beach and run your hands through the wet sand at the shoreline--you'll see lots of bioluminescent algae-tons of little green sparkles in the sand and water!
We loved the captivation house. It was decorated beautifully and had all amenities needed. The owner was awesome. He offered for our family to fish off his private deck one night which was a great experience for us. There were 6 adults and 4 young children staying in the house. Everyone had their own space and bathroom! All the bedrooms are on the second floor. The kitchen and living area is on the top floor and the bottom floor is the pool and patio area. There are lots of stairs, but you need hem for the amazing view you get from all of the decks. We will definitely come back!
Walking trails through the state preserve. World class fishing.
Two golf carts included with your stay.
