“Windswept has it all”

Mark and Wendy are fabulous hosts. Bugs aside, we had a wonder vacation celebrating our 25th Anniversary with 2 teenage boys. When we were not out and about, we enjoyed the pool. When we were not in the pool, the boys lived in the loft. We loved the location of the home. We enjoyed many spectacular views from the tower that you can't get when you're on the beach. The home is very ideal for 2 families with children. We packed a cooler of dry foods (just enough for the week). We used Sandy's delivery; kitchen was stocked prior to arrival (put napkins on the list to pack up shells). Our favorite restaurant was ordering Mangos to go. We were eaten alive waiting on dinner the first night (over an hour). However, food is better at Mangos than the Boathouse and Barnacle Phils. We also ordered seafood from Andy's Seafood market. We found out yesterday, that Over the Waterfront has a lunch menu. So, we're headed there today (our last day). Prices are much more reasonable than dinner. Dinner prices are best at Mangos. We recommend everyone to bring bug spray, anti-itch cream, sunscreen, and after sun lotion. Bring containers for the many shells you will collect. The best place for shelling is taking the path through the preserve. My feet were very sore from walking, but when we found out we could take bikes into the preserve, we went a second time. However, most of the bikes from the club were old. Chains on two of the bikes kept coming off. I was able to ride. We had hoped to spend time at Foster Bay. However, there were thousands of crabs. Look for dolphins feeding at about 8 a.m. over by the airport. There is one alligator in the pond.

“Fabuous rental property”
Reviewed 12 November 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Perfect contrast having spent a few days in New York City, allowed us to really unwind and relax in a home from home. Cannot overstate the importance of Mark and Wendy living on the island, they were never intrusive but always helpful and a slight internet glitch was fixed within 10 minutes. Would not hesitate to recommend this property.

“Perfect”

Every year we go to Disneyworld. This year we decided to try something new, and it did not disappoint. The home was perfectly beautitul, clean, large, and walking distance to the beach.
The swimming pool is very large and easily accomodated the 7 of us.
Mark and Wendy, the owners, checked on us daily to make sure we were doing okay.
Every appliance was high end, we had crockpot, blenders, coffee press, Keurig, etc. We slept on a wonderful temperpedic mattress with Ralph Lauren pillows.
The views from the home are so beautiful. Large windows in every room and beside the 2 person jacuzzi tub. The shower in the master bedroom had 2 heads and could easily fit 3-4 people inside. :-)
The internet wifi was fast and it was easy to stay connected. There was a landline phone and fax machine available and we had great cell service (ATT.) The pictures shown on tripadvisor are accurate.
My daughter left her ipod at the home, and Wendy put it in the mail for us as quickly as she found it. Mark is very knowledgeable about the island and seemed to be a really great and caring guy.
When we arrived, Mark and Wendy met us at the home with fresh, warm cookies. Upon departure we were given a tote bag, coffee mug, and shirts with North Captiva logo.
We received our deposit back within 24 hours of returning home.
I would not hesitate to book this vacation again. The entire family said they preferred this trip to Disneyworld, and I have to agree.

We stayed as guests of Mark and Wendy Muller in July 2012. Their home, the Windswept was exactly as advertised -- beautiful and perfect! The open design of the home made for a spectacular stay for the eight of us. Mark and Wendy live on the island and make themselves available upon arrival, adding a lovely personal touch. Having a background in commercial high rise property management, I can tell you that these folks and their home are nothing short of top notch. From designer bedding to appliances and cookware, there isn't anything that they didn't think of. We were so impressed with our stay at this gorgeous property. Thanks again, Mark & Wendy, for making our summer family vacation so very memorable. We have been telling everyone about it and hope to be back soon!
