Guestbook comments from the owner

As Florida residents, we have pretty much tried it all! From our first conversations with the owners right through the sad moment we had to leave, this was nothing but the BEST vacation ever! Brian and Charm are lovely people and soooo very helpful! I literally unpacked two boxes after speaking with them one last time before we left for this island getaway because they had everything there except our groceries! A lovely welcome basket awaited us...a very unexpected gesture. The home is clean, beautiful, spacious, and the views are spectacular! The private pool is lovely and all the amenities...just so inviting and convenient! We kayaked (kayaks provided) in the gulf and the bay, saw so much in the mangroves...shark, fish, manatee. We fished, hiked among the tortoise, owls, birds, etc. , shelled, swam, and just plain relaxed. The golf cart takes you anywhere you want to go on the island, including a couple of neat "Jimmy Buffet" style restaurants. No cars or even paved roads. Ferry ride to and from the island was quick and easy. We plan to make this an annual event. This retreat will quickly become our home away from home. We have been telling all of our family and friends about it. So you'd better book fast! I recommend it for families, retirees, girl's weekend, guys' getaway. We are still talking about it! Thanks again, Charm and Brian, for sharing your home with us.

Brian and Charm were wonderful to work with.They went above and beyond to make sure we had all the necessary information for a stress free arrival and stay.They met us at the ferry ,helped load our stuff, and took us to the house.They toured the house with us and explained everything before leaving. This was the most relaxing vacation ever, no cars on the island absolutely spectacular setting, very friendly residents.Would love to return again soon. Gayle

Two enthusiastic thumbs up!

  • 5 of 5

This was our fifth stay on the island so we considered ourselves pretty accustomed to the different rental styles out there.

Charm and Brian raised the bar to a whole new level.

The house was perfectly inviting, instantly making us feel welcomed in their house. The decorations and appointments were perfect for getting away from everything but keeping a family feel to it all. Everything is maintained well and in good working order. The books, games, and wildlife and shell guide books were a nice touch and came in handy.

We always over-pack when it comes to kitchen items like spices and such, and we were pleasantly surprised to see there was no shortage of such things when we arrived. All the little things one might say, “…I wish I had brought….” were already there.

The downstairs/bar area could not have been better. I think I counted seating for well over 20 between the pool decking, bar, and table set. Between the pool, kayaks, bikes, and tiki toss (our daughter made it to 103 by the time we left) it was difficult for the kids to pick a favorite. Everything was enjoyed.

They also have two of the nicest golf carts you could want for getting around the island, and the ability to trailer the kayaks makes so much more of the area accessible.

Charm and Brian were very attentive to our needs and were quick to respond to a few questions over the course of the week.

If you’re looking for a fun house with plenty to do, is extremely comfortable, and doesn’t feel like a turn-key hotel, give this place a try.

Fantastic beach paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had three generations under one roof and found that everyone had everything they could possibly want. From beach toys and towels to kayaks, beach chairs, and fishing rods.

The property was immaculate and well located - not that the island is big. We loved beach mornings watching the dolphins, lunches at the tiki bar, and lazy pool afternoons. The owners clearly care about their house - and were very responsive - and it does feel like a proper home.

All in all would highly recommend Ka Hale Kai

We loved the island and the hospitality of Charm and Brian!

  • 5 of 5

Well maintained and needed a little updating in its amenities. The pool was great and it was great to be so close to the beach!! I never felt unsafe for my children to be on their own on the island! Arranging for groceries was a bit tough, but third time was the charm!

This place is wonderful and peaceful! My family and I had a awesome stay. Charm and her husband, the owners, meet us at the ferry to pick us up. They showed us around the property and welcomed us with a great basket of goodies. The place was beautiful and well kept. We enjoyed the pool and the golf cart was great for getting around the island. Charm made herself available for questions the entire time we were there. I would highly recommend Jose's Hideaway!

Amazing: house, owners, location

  • 5 of 5

We have been to North Captiva island 3 times. The island is a perfect getaway for a family looking to reconnect and enjoy the ocean. This island is graced with dolphins, manatees, turtles and incredible birds. Charm and Brian make this house the one you want to rent. They are incredibly helpful in planning the trip and they have thought of everything you need within the house as well. The pool is awesome. My three kids - 12,10, and 8- were in it a lot and I didn't have to worry as shade abounds at various points in the day. The beach is a very short walk away down a sandy path. We followed a turtle down the path several times. The ocean is swimmable most of the time with shelling galore and dolphins to be viewed multiple times/day. We found the house to be perfect! The beds are comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked. A/C is great and the music system is an added joy. I would highly recommend renting this house for its incredible features and location. But, the owners really make it the best!
