Simply ideal!

  • 5 of 5

The easy way to write this review is to simply say that we agree with everything the previous reviewers wrote! We were delighted with our first stay on North Captiva, primarily because we were fortunate enough to have chosen this property.

The property was spotlessly clean and has that still-new shiny feeling. The top-floor living area is open & airy and gave us the feeling of being in a tree house. The adjacent screened-in porch was ideal for reading, dining and just hanging out, watching the ospreys soaring & then perching on neighbors’ roofs. The spacious and well-equipped kitchen made eating-in easy, which we mostly did due to the limited number of dining options on the island. Each bedroom having its own en suite bathroom and TV was wonderful.

The location and amenities make the Morganite well-suited to both the active and inactive; our guests included children who loved the pool, beach & bikes, and our older, less able in-laws who loved the many different places to read or watch TV. Kayaks, bikes, beach chairs, pool toys and golf carts – it’s all there.

We particularly appreciated the care & concern the owners, Alex & Delphine, showed towards our occupancy. When we suggested that there were a couple of items (e.g., a reading lamp for the great room) that would make our stay better, they had the resident property managers, Laurie & Duncan, take care of things right away.

As first-timers to North Captiva, it was a bit hard to understand what the location of this property meant, as compared to others we considered. Our conclusion: unless one needs to be right on the beach, this location is ideal. The house is just short walk down a sandy lane that dead-ends at the beach and is a quick golf-cart ride to either restaurant. But what really impressed us is the peacefulness & privacy of this location; the pool and back deck are bordered by trees and although there are other homes close by they are for the most part hardly visible.

We hope to return next year!

The property was amazing! A private piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic vacation! Alex & Delphine were very helpful & quick with responses to my many questions. The property was better than the pics & the ammenities were fantastic! The house is absolutely beautful & so was the island! We will be back again next year! Absolute Paradise! The private pool and deck was nice & private. We cooked out for dinner every evening & enjoyed all the comforts of the house. I cannot say enough good things about the property. Bikes, kayaks, fishing poles, beach towels, hair dryer, shampoo, soap, paper towels, bathroom tissue etc. it's all there. We purchased a lot of those things so maybe this will keep the next group over-packIng. Swim suits, shorts & tops, lots of sunscreen & flipflops. That's all you need to enjoy this private piece of paradise! The location on the island is superb! Highly recommend the property, the owners were so nice & extremely helpful as this was our first time to the island.

Perfect location in paridise !!!

  • 5 of 5

This house has got it all! The owners have thought about all your needs! The house is absolutely beautiful and brand new! I got so lucky to have stayed at the Morganite Nest. The pool and deck is private and gets the perfect amount of shade from 2:30 on. Alex was on hand to help with any questions I had (via email) as well as Carin (on site manager). I've stayed at another property on North Captiva managed by NCIC and honestly I would rather save all the money and stay at this property again! They have bikes and kyacks, tons of pool and beach toys. You name it, they had it!! I tend to be hard to please but this vacation surpassed every expectation I had! Do yourself a huge favor and stay here for your next vaca! You will not be sorry!!- Teri from Connecticut

Wonderful House and Location!

  • 5 of 5

The house is meticulously clean and very comfortable. We really enjoyed the pool and the privacy of the backyard. The owners were very accommodating. We highly recommend this house and we will be back for a future visit. The island is beautiful! A nice place to relax and unwind with excellent shelling and beaches.
