A Perfect Home for a Wonderful Family Vacation!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The lovely Winshall Home couldn't have been more perfect for us!!! We celebrated an 80th Birthday here with our family....5 adults, 3 children. It's a beautiful and comfortable home on Captiva Island.......right on the gulf. We walked on the wonderful sandy beach, collecting many shells; played in the ocean, riding waves; ate lunch on the porch; swam and swam in the pool; walked again on the beach watching beautiful sunsets. The kitchen is well equipped, furniture in house and on porch and in pool ample and very comfortable; laundry room a handy convenience; bedrooms and baths comfortable and very nice in size; etc., etc.,

We have beautiful memories of our time there!!!! Wonderful home!!!!!

Welcoming beach decor.

Well appointed regarding kitchen, linens, towels-basics.

Pool was enjoyed daily.

Management very responsive when one of the ac units went down -had technicians out within a few hours fixing the problem.

Super Vacation House for Families :)

  • 5 of 5

The Winshall Home was a super vacation home. We came all the way from Basel, Switzerland and we were not disappointed. We and our friends and our children really enjoyed the solitude and the beaches that Captiva and Sanibel have to offer. The Winshall house was perfect.. the pool was a great hit after staying on the beach and then the hot tube to finish the evening. We also had some ant issues, but was cleaned up the next day and our air conditioner had a problem but this was also cleared up immediately.

One suggestion would be to have a working portable music player that one could connect to an iPhone device to play music at the pool. The music box that was in the house was broken.

We look forward to coming back and renting this house again.

Thanks for the nice time!!!

Beautiful home!

  • 3 of 5

We had a great time for sure! The home was beautiful but the sugar ants were pretty bad upon arrival and we fought them through out the week. But wasn't a HUGE Deal. We couldn't really enjoy the beach because we were eaten up by Kinard, bugs, noseeums are pretty bad there so we were miserable for rest of week after 30-50 bites. I wish it had more beach front instead of being in the forest. I know after talking to others vegetation and cutting of trees isn't what they do. The sanibel captiva area is pretty and neat to see. It just isn't for us, I was really disappointed considering this was our yearly vacation and we didn't really enjoy ourselves like years past. We spend a lot of time on the beach and this year we just couldn't. But had a lot of indoor family time!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review and I'm sorry you didn't feel as though Captiva was a great fit for you. However, if you do appreciate Captiva this is the quintessential beach home! There are a number of photos that show the waist high sea grapes and dune grass between the home and the water, very standard on Captiva as we can't, nor want, to destroy native vegetation(not a view blocking forest that could be envisioned:)). We will address any sugar ants and please know that we respond rapidly to any calls for needs during your stay. Thanks again and I hope you have wonderful future vacations!
