We enjoyed our stay at Viva La Playa!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week on North Captiva Island at Viva La Playa! We have a wonderful week. This island provides true R&R! The home nicely accomodated our family of 6 and was accuratley described in the VRBO description. The house is in a great location. The view from the house was beautiful. It is a short golf cart ride to the beach which made it convenient to get all of our stuff there! We also enjoyed exploring the island on the golf carts and bikes. We were greeted at the ferry by Tortuga Management Properties. They got all of our luggage in the house without letting us touch a thing! Upon departure the same service was provided. Our family enjoyed this house and would stay again. Thanks for a great week!

perfect for our grown family of 6!

  • 4 of 5

Loved so many things about this property but would suggest a few upgrades: the oven (does not heat properly), beach chairs (broken or close to it) and towels - (getting a little tired). however it was clean, well appointed, golf carts in good order and very beachy and relaxing décor.

Viva La Playa was a nice place to spend the week! The screened in porch was my favorite!!

  • 4 of 5

Our first time to North Captiva was wonderful! We loved the location of Viva La Playa on the island.With two golf carts that came with the property, our 3 sons could go when they wanted and my husband and I had our cart too. We brought ALL of our food in coolers and bags. We ate at the pool one day for lunch and Barnacles for dinner one night-both were great. The sunsets were amazing and a few pop up thunderstorms were enjoyed while sitting on the screened in porch with a cocktail in hand. It was such a family oriented setting all the way around. Our boys - ages 16,20 and 22 enjoyed it as much as we did! Great memories were made!😊 We loved our week staying at Viva La Playa!!

I hate where I live now!

  • 5 of 5

What a great get away and wonderful place to visit. If you want to slow down a bit and get away from it all I couldn't recommend a better spot. It's a little daunting the thought of my wife and I taking four children to an island for the first time but Carlos, the owner, was incredibly helpful in walking us through the process. He was quick to respond to any question I had prior to our arrival. The lady he recommended, Chris, who transported us from RSW to Island Girl Charters met my family at the airport and was one of the nicest people I have ever encountered. Duncan and his crew on the island took care of any needs we had from the moment we stepped onto the dock at NC. For ten days my family never turned on a tv and no one was bored. With the two golf carts that the owner provided my wife and I were zooming around the island often in different directions. The house was very clean and as described. My wife and I enjoyed early mornings and late evenings on the porch listening to the surf and wildlife. The community pool was a daily visit. If you like jogging then a run through the state forest is a must! I took my family through the forest and they enjoyed the many turtle sightings. If you like fishing the kids and I enjoyed fishing off the docks at Barnacle Phil's almost daily and had great success from the surf as well.

I would recommend planning your groceries accordingly because the local store is quite limited. We flew Southwest and with the baggage allowance actually checked most of our groceries for the week but we also hit the Publix before boarding the charter to the Island. There are several restaurants on the island and we did enjoy our several dinners at Barnacle Phil's, however, bringing the appropriate amount of rations is necessary. With that said, for a very happy, successful vacation if you make sure the groceries are good to go then this is definitely a place I would recommend to anyone interested because between the owner, Carlos, and the island crew headed by Duncan it would be hard to find a more hospitable combination of people.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jeff. I will share with Duncan (and co.) and with Chris your kind words. We are extremely happy that you and your family got to know this place and enjoyed the way you tell us. It is a magic place and we are happy for you and your family. We hope you can enjoy it again (as we offer a discount to families that repeat). be in touch, Carlos.

This private and secluded island does not have paved roads. No cars, no noise, no pollution! Guest and owners get around by golf carts, bikes or by foot. It has miles of pristine white sandy beaches. The house is only one block from the ocean. Abundant wildlife including manatees, dolphins and sea turtles can be seen every day from the shore. Big gopher tortoises roaming freely at the sandy streets.

Most of the island is a protected preserve with nature trails and pristine beaches.
