Perfect family vacation
The week was too short!
An amazing and memorable trip
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. :)
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.
