The Cinco de Mayo is a luxury island home which has been professionally decorated. It provides a festive environment for a family vacation retreat. This home is immaculately maintained by the owners who visit often.
Perfection best describes the experience you will feel when you stay at the CINCO DE MAYO beach house. Rest, relaxation and a sense of home will be yours while you enjoy your stay. The Fifth of May is when we found our paradise and thus the name of our home.
CINCO DE MAYO is located conveniently between the spectacular North Captiva Island Club and gulf beaches. Spectacular views of the bay and the emerald Gulf waters from the observation deck. This 4 bedroom/3 bath custom built and decorated Island beach home has three levels with the living areas on the upper levels and the bedrooms on the lower to provide you with excellent water and nature views. Decorated by a professional decorator who is a member of the American Society of Interior Designers, no details have been missed. Your memories will be cherished forever from your visit at this spectacular festive home.

This property is absolutely amazing. So well appointed and just minutes from the beach. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need to cook wonderful meals and all the bedrooms are beautifully decorated. The pool was such a blessing for being there in July with 7 kids! The owners communicated very well and answered all our questions regarding this island as it was our first time. We can’t wait to visit here again.

Cinco De Mayo at North Captiva Island Club was an amazing peaceful get away!

We stayed at Cinco De Mayo July 28- August 4, 2018. My husband and I, 25 year old niece and two 15 year old boys. There was more than enough space. I enjoyed sun rises and sun sets on the roof top level and the well equipped kitchen. My husband enjoyed the grill and hiking trail. All the adults loved the close proximity to the mangos pool bar. Ice cream at mangos store was also a hit! Everyone enjoyed the house pool especially the 15 year old boys! The red tide obviously was a big let down but we all did our best to find other things to do to relax aside from the ocean/beach for the few unsafe Red Tide days. Plenty to do. Dinner at Barnacles, NCIC pools, exploring the island, charter fishing, shopping at Barnacle Phil’s store, make popcorn and watch a movie as a family, there were still ways to enjoy our time out of the ocean water.
More about the house, beds very comfy, house is very clean, plenty of dish and laundry soap, WiFi and satellite tv worked well, golf cart worked great, pool was clean, games outdoors were a plus also, tons of cookware and bbq utensils, herbs for cooking. Everything in house worked. When coffee pot had a crack in the glass, NCIC replaced with a new one within the hour.
Sarah Rapp is very kind to work with when you have 101 questions about anything and everything. We contacted her with questions about the contract, grocery delivery, ferry reservations, (make them as early as possible or they will be full) where to locate items in the house etc. The Rapps were always available and accommodating. We feel like we really lucked out finding Cinco De Mayo and The Rapps! They made the whole experience easy for us.
Our recommendations to first timers like us: Choose this house, pack 1 more bottle of sunscreen than you anticipate needing, bug spray is a must near the beach especially at dusk or after a rain, Try a “On the Water” drink at Mangos bar, Charters through Boats and Fun, Dinner at Barnacle Phil’s (no reservations were needed), handmade gifts at Barnacle’s store, get up early at least once for roof top sunrise and always find the sunset, especially on the beach. Above all enjoy the slower pace of island life. No traffic jams, busy store lines, hustle and bustle of daily life. Just you and your loved ones in a beautiful home on and gorgeous island.
Only Complaint, we may never enjoy a beach town other than this one again :-)

My family loved the home and the island. The owners have certainly thought of everything! I was anxious packing for this trip that we might run out of some essentials, but the owners are so generous, that this never became a concern. The home is very well equipped with any needs you may have. The kitchen has any cooking/baking needs, lots of spices, and plenty of storage containers. There were plenty of beach towels and extra detergent to keep them clean throughout your stay. I was really impressed with the amount of games and movies available. My twins took full advantage of this for any rainy days or down time at the home.
Being a member of the club was also very beneficial. We were able to take advantage of the bikes and kayaks. I highly recommend the kayaks. We were able to get up close and personal with dolphins and manatee. We had an issue with our golf cart after being there a few days, but one call to the club and the cart was quickly replaced.
Sarah also called to check in, just to make sure all of our needs were met and we did not have any concerns. She truly wanted to make sure we were taken care of. My family can't wait to return to the beautiful island and would absolutely request to stay at Cinco de Mayo again.
