very comfortable and lots of fun

  • 4 of 5

The house is very clean and the beds are comfortable. There are lots of terrific extras--sea kayaks, bikes, life jackets. The downstairs fridge was great for keeping drinks by the pool and ready to load the cooler when we'd head out to the boat or the beach. Good location on the southernmost part of the residential section right near the preserve so the beach access is right at the edge of the preserve and away from beach front homes. All in all it was wonderful.

Best vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation to North Captiva and the Emeraude Nest was outstanding. From the arrival to the departure our stay was exceptional. The house is wonderfully located on the island with a view of the ocean and has every amenity you could ask for! The house is extremely well maintained and the kitchen is well equipped. We particularly enjoyed the fact that there were no cars and only golf carts. It is a true escape from the everyday hustle and we are looking forward to our return visit !

beautiful home and perfect, quiet location on this amazing island!

  • 5 of 5

The home had everything we needed and more for a perfect trip! This house is very clean and well cared for. There was plenty of space for 4 adults and 2 children. The owners and property caretakers were so helpful before, during and after our stay. We loved it, and would go back to stay here in a heartbeat.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Alex and Delphine thought of everything! This rental has beach chairs, umbrellas, beach toys, kayaks, bikes, coolers, etc. You name it, they thought of it and provided it with the home. The home is located on the far end of the island, next to the preserve which gives you plenty of privacy. It's also is very quiet. The beach, which wasn't crowded at all, was just a couple minute walk away. We utilized our golf cart, which is included. The home is beautiful, and well decorated. We enjoyed watching the sunset from our private screened in balcony every evening. Each bedroom has its own full bath and television. This was great for the kids, as they could go off on their own and the adults could relax in the evening. I can't say enough about this rental. We had an awesome vacation!

Wow! All The Comforts of Home

  • 5 of 5

This house is a home! So clean, modern, well cared for, and spacious. There are plenty of places to get away for quiet moments or sharing time with family & friends. The pool is a real gathering spot with lots of sunny hours. The kayaks, pool side furniture, fat tire bikes, golf cart and so much more create the best experience. The location is perfect for all kinds of beach play, walks, or just relaxing. Everything is easy. As important Delphine and Alex are great communicators and do everything to make sure your experience is the best. Would highly recommend. Please take good care of things if you rent because my family will be back!

Beauty, relaxation, and true comfort!

  • 5 of 5

The house was more than we imagined. Wonderfully equipped and spacious. Kitchen was beautiful. Loved the screened in porch off the kitchen. We have breakfast there every morning. All bedrooms had their own beautiful bathroom. On site pool, kayaks, and beach equipment was a real plus! We loved hopping into our golf cart to sight see around the island. Pure relaxation on the island. Arrangements for travel to island and food for the week was easy and trouble free. A great vacation and one our family will do over and over and over and over!
