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.

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!
We wanted a vacation with our family free from distractions and the need to run around and see everything. North Captiva was perfect for us. The house was beautiful and clean and the service from check-in to check-out was superb.
Our home was fantastic with beautiful views every direction you could look in.
Our second week long trip to Wits' End was as fantastic as the first! The house is beautiful and the views amazing! Traveling with 5 teenagers...there was never a dull moment from golf cart rides, to trips to the pool, to lacrosse and chicken fights on the beach! Life is good! And looking forward to trip#3 next summer!
I picked North Captiva because of the unique qualities it possessed. You take a ferry over and there are no cars on the island. The rental we stayed in was very nice and clean and the views were great. The only complaint about the house was that many of the utensils and dishes were dated or warped and they had a whole storage area of beach toys, kayaks, and beach accessories that were visible, but not accessible. They need to cover the windows so the kids are not able to view what they are missing out on. The staff is definitely on "island time". There was however one of the male staff members who regularly answered the guest services line that went above and beyond. I always saw him racing around to get stuff done. The chef in the Boathouse restaurant was not overly enthusiastic about her job. She was very short with me and basically pretty rude on the phone. Over all the stay was nice, but we will probably be looking elsewhere next spring for a place to stay.
The house was great, though it was missing some essentials that took awhile to get to. I would suggest that there be a checklist for each house (towels, linens, salt and pepper, paper products, etc) that each cleaning person would need to check off on before the guests arrive. If the house has a pool or hot tub the person should make sure they are in working order the day before the guests arrive. When we arrived, the hot tub was empty. Our cleaning person was still there when arrived and she lead us to believe the hot tub was broken and not able to work. It wasn't until my husband started to fiddle with it and make phone calls about it, that having the much promised hot tub became a reality. Also, there were no coffee filters in the house because the owners used their Keurig coffee maker. It would have been nice if we had known about the Keurig coffee maker, since we have one at home and we could have brought our little cups with us -- that said, we brought ground coffee and it had said in the rental description that coffee filters were included. It took two full days to get our coffee filters... little things like that make a difference. Other than that -- the house and North Captiva are spectacular! We rented a boat for a couple days and explored all around. Did shelling and fishing and swimming and snorkeling. Spent quality time with my family -- which was the best!

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.
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.

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.

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.
