Fantastic Time on North Captiva

May 2020

Overall
5

We had a fantastic time with NCIC (North Captiva Island Club)! Amidst the COVID-19, we had a reservation that was cancelled due to the county saying NO to out of state stays, and then able to be re-booked once the law was lifted. NCIC was very professional and kind throughout the process, even when my credit card info was stolen and my original booking had to be refunded and then re-paid, they worked with us while adhering to their policies with charm! Anytime we called they always answered friendly. (I’m sure they were quite tired of us! Lol) From when we arrived on the island and during our stay, anytime we saw any staff, they were always smiling. For us, we were able to stay socially distant from everyone because of how the island is. No crowded beaches, no crowds. There are 4 restaurants on the island of which 3 were open when we arrived; Over the Waterfront, Mangos, and Mainstay (previously Barnacles). Over the Waterfront we called several times and even tried to show up but they were never open. The two times we went to Mainstay they had signs that said “Closed Due to Weather”, yet we saw the girls inside sipping drinks and watching us through the windows. We decided to go straight to Mangos and saw the girls there with friends instead. I guess we are on island time, so no complaints. Mangos was great, they are the official restaurant for NCIC, along with Boathouse, but they aren’t ready to reopen yet due to the virus. We went to the general store for stuff we forgot, and sat at the bar and had dinner one night. It was a great time! We stayed at rental 145-Osprey Nest. For my husband and I, it was more than enough! It was a smaller home, but well equipped and had a pool and hot tub. During our stay the NCIC came out and cleaned the pool and checked the levels. We made great use of those! We had read other reviews that there was nothing in the houses, so we were worried what we would find but there was plenty of pots, pans, blender, and such. The house comes with a golf cart which was great fun, but just make sure you are charging it each time when not in use. We opted out of having grocery delivery, so instead we went to the Coral Shores Publix near the ferry check-in and got what we needed there and just packed in our cooler bags. Just make sure you are paying attention to how much they allow you to bring. We didn’t come across any issues. The only thing I would recommend is BUG SPRAY. We brought some, but it was no where near enough. While on the island we saw: manatees and their babies, dolphins and the babies, jellyfish, sea urchins, starfish, conch shells with the conchs still inside, gopher tortoises, protected turtle nests, and so many birds! We went to the ‘Sandbar’ to swim by the beach every day. It was one of the public beach accesses. We found so many fantastic sea shells there! We are so thankful we got to enjoy the island while staying safe! We hope we get to return in the future!

Our experience at Osprey Nest was mostly positive. I had inquired with Management before our arrival about some comments left on recent reviews. They responded to most items and the home was in better condition when we arrived than prior guests had reported. The hot tub does not heat. Management sent a maintenance worker to address and he did spend a lot of time attempting to fix the problem. The hot tub holds water (now), but still does not heat water. The pool is a really nice addition to this home! The location is truly IDEAL!
Bring all of your own bath toiletries, there is only small bars of soap available. Bring your own handsoap, none available. Kitchen only has salt and pepper, no other spices, PAM, etc. There are filters for the coffee pot. All in all... we were very happy with the rental and would return!

Just OK

Overall this property was...ok. The home served its purpose and luckily you visit North Captiva for its outdoor beauty. When renting this home you have to decide if the trade off for great location verses the 'cons' are worth it to you.
Pros: Excellent proximity and short walk to the beach. I suspect this is reflected in the price. NCIC club access is great and we used those amenities more than anticipated (pool, restaurants etc). Having a private pool and hot tub was nice as well.
Cons: Overall with a few simple TLC touches, the owner or manager of this home could make some improvements that would really increase the quality of the stay. Kitchen is lacking in quite a few basics- only one fry pan. Missing things like a pizza cutter, spatula etc. Seems like a quick trip to Walmart to replace some staples would take care of the kitchen. The dishwasher limps along, we ended up not using it as it didn't ever clean the dishes. The rugs and carpet in the home are quite dirty/stained. Bring extra towels or rent from NCIC. The beds are mediocre at best- my young kids complained they could feel the springs when they slept. The pool deck is showing wear and warped wood. Home does not come with a golf cart, so factor a rental into your vacation cost.

This was our third year returning to North Captiva and as stated- the home served its purpose. I would likely recommend this home to a friend- Just know that you're staying at this property because of the location and not because it's a luxury rental.

House is in a great location. But house is awful! house didn't have heat for 2 days and we were there over 2 cold days, so house was in the 60 our kids were cold. pool did not have a heater. house says it sleeps 6 that is false. There is only 1 king and 2 twin beds the sofa does not turn into a bed. There were no wash clothes, they also only provide one towel per person which was fine, but the dryer also didn't work well. When we asked the front desk for wash clothes, they basically told us they don't have any for us. House was fairly clean but, it needs updating very badly.

Dreadful condition -absolutely do not recommend

This was probably the worst rental house I have ever stayed in. The pool deck wood was pulled up in places, rusty nails poking out everywhere, basically unsafe and usable, refrigerator door handle broken off, pulls off in kitchen, windows broken (had to prop open with wood pieces, shades broken, everywhere filthy and dirty, no cart charger, golf cart broken and replaced twice, and countless other problems, completely disreputable and Club managers offered next to no help or assistance.
