“A few issues; overall good stay”
Wit's End was certainly an adequate stay for our party of seven, including a teen, preteen, and a preschooler. Was very well stocked. Most importantly, the a/C kept it nice and chilly inside during late June! Furnishings were comfortable. Views and beach access were great. The master suite was a great size and a nice quiet retreat for napping and reading. The outdoor balcony space was nice. Outdoor furnishings need some updating; no seating on the balcony outside the bedrooms. There were some problems. It's almost as if the home has been partly refinished, but with a few major items left out. Both bathrooms are dated and the tubs drain poorly. The motor on the washer went out on the first day, but the Island Club was brisk in bringing in a replacement. The coffee pot didn't work; again, it was replaced very quickly. The motor on the hot tub didn't work upon our arrival; it was five days into our stay until it was fixed. Not all windows have blinds. Had to use the hurricane shutters to have darkness in the master bedroom. Another issue, however, is that the house was supposed to have two king beds, one queen, and two twin beds. In actuality, the master has a king. Two bedrooms have full beds, and the fourth bedroom actually has a twin trundle. Hard for an adult couple to go from a king bed at home to a full bed. Knowing the actual bedding situation might have changed our rental decision. All together, however, this house is good but could really be a lot better with some updating investment. Would we stay here again? Probably not. Other properties seem to have more value for money spent.
“Another lovely experience.”
This was our second year on the island and again we were not disappointed. We spent the first two days of our trip doing the amusement parks in Orlando and Tampa. The R&R; provided by the setting of North Captiva Island was again a welcome retreat from the usual crowds and chaos of spring break. We traveled with our kids (10, 8, 6, & 3) as well as my wife parents. The Island provided activities for everyone to enjoy. We stayed at Wits End and found it to be very comfortable and accommodating for our crew. The roof top deck is always a must when choosing a home. What spectacular views both during the day of gulf and the star filled sky at night. I was sad that the fishing trip is no longer available as we thoroughly enjoyed it last year. The best part was the dolphins thrashing under the surface to grab our discarded catch. I hope this can be reintroduced in years to come.
“Nice house...very poor water pressure for the showers.”
North Captiva Island is a nice escape from reality. You feel as though you have arrived on "fantasy island." We arrived in a thunderstorm and it was very challenging to find your home with the poor maps the resort provides. Wits End is a nice home that presents well but the water pressure and the poor maintenance of the home does not bode well with travelers. The maintenance men tried to do what they could but I expected more with the price we paid for this home. I would advise to rent a home less expensive with a golf cart and tour the island on your own. Nice trip...not sure we will return and if we do, it will be at a less expensive rate.
“Beautiful Beach Home”
For our second family vacation to North Captiva we chose Wits End. It's a beautiful house, close to the beach. We were four adults (two couples) and three children so we were looking for a house with two master bedrooms. We were a little disappointed to find that there was only one king size bed, and not two, as the description on the website claims. Regardless, we were very comfortable and received excellent service. The location to the beach can't be beat. We watched the sunset each night from the beach.
“Very quiet hideaway”
We have traveled to North Captiva for the last four seasons. And have enjoyed each and every trip. Very quiet. Very relaxing. Great place to escape. Plus, the crew is very helpful and dedicated to making your stay comfortable. Kayla is always incredible. We truly appreciate her spirit.
Response from the manager Thank you for your lovely comments and for coming back again and again! We are happy to have Kayla as well. I will make sure she gets your praise!
“New Year's in North Captiva”
We loved Wit's End's proximity to the beach! The house was great - lots of room, comfortable beds:), lots of kitchen utensils/appliances, etc..., great frig:) - really everything was great. The only thing is that we had no hot water. We reset the water heater several times, maintenance came twice, had a few spurts of scalding water but the water heater kept shutting off. Luckily, the weather was warm - but a warm shower would have been nice.
great location great home nice kitchen, wish there was an extra bedroom some new appliances like food processor and blender needed. some cleaning of the bathrooms needed otherwise great home.
“We couldn't have picked a more perfect place!”
This was our first vacation on the island and Wits End and the North Captiva Island experience was a perfect way to spend our 35th wedding anniversary. We needed some R&R; and were able to accomplish that on the island. The house was everything we had hoped for. The location was great and we spent hours walking on the beach looking for shells. The staff were enjoyable and very helpful. We certainly plan to return to North Captiva Island! We just wish we had known about North Captiva Island sooner. What a perfect place for a family vacation!
From the time we arrived to when we left everything, from the weather, the fantastic beaches and the great house were perfect. Sandy, Brian and Kayla are the best.
“Island Captiva Club has Become Our Family Tradition”
Overall we had an amazing time. This was our 4th summer and we have stayed in some very nice beachfront houses. The only feedback that I think you would find useful it this home owner has WaT to much clutter in the house. When we got there I felt like I had to put aways stuff. Every drawer in the kitchen is like a junk drawer. They really should get some beach towels for their guests. We didn't have a single beach towel but the owners locked room with glass doors was full of beach towels. When it comes to the Club I have nothing but good things to say. Jeff and Mr. Brilhart are top notch gentlemen who went above and beyond to make our stay great. We will be back next summer!
