Relaxing place to stay

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at the Coral Reef for two weeks. The house was quite comfortable and the island is very quiet and relaxing. I wish I would have discovered North Captiva while I was still working as it would have been a great place to decompress. We took advantage of the gas grill most nights and during the day took advantage of the beautiful beach which is a short walk from the house. As a bonus, the house has the Big Ten network which allowed me to follow my favorite team.

Perfect location for the beach. House was big and the view of the sunset from the porch was outstanding. Grilled outside one night and used the pool. Had 4 couples in total for a couple of nights and we had plenty of room. Sherman was very helpful and responsive to any questions we may have had. If anyone thinking of going to North Captiva recommend this house as your first choice. Also the use of the NCIC pools and bar was a great asset with the heated pools and use of Kayak's, bikes, etc. We plan on doing this again. Thanks Mark and Sherman for a great stay. Also Ella took great care of us at the Over the Water Restaurant. Bill L

Perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at The Coral Reef for a week with two toddlers and 5 adults. It was a great house for us- close to the beach, a pool to use while the kids napped and accomodated all of us rather well. Mark and Sherman were very helpful any time we had questions or needed help. We loved cruising around in the golf cart, spending our days at the beach, seeing turtles all over the island and going to visit cayo costa (definitely a must-do).

The week was too short!

This was a return trip for our party of 10 which included family members ages 9 through 58. We are all so glad we made the decision to come back. We had a chance to do things we couldn't fit in last year. The house is roomy and user friendly. The opportunity to use the facilities at the club let us kayak daily, bike, and swim at the pool when the beach was breezy. Afternoons were spent collecting shells and playing in the waves. We hiked the nature preserve. The family saw eagles, tortoise, manatee, snakes, and raccoons. Young and old alike were sorry to return to the cold of Maine! Thank you Mark for the use of your fabulous home!

An amazing and memorable trip

  • 5 of 5
We booked The Coral Reef Home knowing nothing about North Captiva Island. We had ages 8-77. The Island and home has plenty to do for all ages. No one was bored. The home has plenty of room for many people. Never felt we were in each other people's space. Couple of things we know for the next time we go... We will not bring as many clothes. No makeup or hair products needed. Which I never thought those words would ever come out of my mouth. Very freeing!!! Loved it.

Fishing is a must on the beach so bring poles. We stopped at Walmart and bought 2 on the way there and wish we had bought a couple more.

Food...I think we would bring our own groceries next time. Or have Publix pack up and we pick up and bring on the water taxi. We over bought on the food this time and will tone it down next time. And would not have been a big deal to do ourselves... Now that we understand how the water taxi service works. We took Island Girl Water Taxi and would go thru them again. The guys working the boats were great. Got the dolphins to play in the wake of the boat. We were unsure how the water taxi worked with there being so many of us and all of our things to transport. No worries on any of it. It is super easy. And they are on "Island time", My daughter flew in mid week and was running a few minutes late reserved ferry time, the driver of the car service called Island Girl and they waited for her. We also love Island Time. :) We have incorporated it into our life back at home as much as possible.

We will be going back to North Captiva and wouldn't hesitate to stay at The Coral Reef again. The island is a great way to unplug ourselves from our hectic running from here to there by this specific time lives. We loved that there wasn't a Starbuck's or even a grocery store to go run and get whatever. Everyone could just truly relax.

My only disappointment was that a week was not long enough. And that was felt but every family member. My dad (77) has asked to go back again. Which we are going to try to figure out. :)

Great visit

  • 5 of 5
We booked the Coral Reef Guesthouse relatively last minute for the holiday week of July 4. All in all, it was a great visit to North Captiva Island, and we’ll likely return. Some points to note about our stay:
The Property: The house was spacious and well-kept, easily accommodating a group of 10 with most getting some private space somewhere in the house. We did a lot of at-home cooking that week, and the kitchen had pretty much everything we needed to prepare meals for a large group.
Location: The house was a nice 5 minute walk to the beach, and a short 5 minute drive to the restaurants/stores/boat docks on the island. The closest beach even attracted a group of manatees one day, and it was great to see them up close. The beach near the island airport had the calmest waters (for the older/younger set), and seemed to attract dolphins every day. We kayaked there one day and they swam under/alongside our kayaks for a few minutes.
The Owners: The owners made the booking of the house super easy, and were very prompt about returning the security deposit after our stay.
