Other Captiva Testimonials


25th Anniversary :  "Thank You Thank you! Our vacation was great. We had the greatest time doing nothing.  We live very fast paced lives and to sit back and do nothing was fabulous. Our kids even survived without us. We were talking last night that it would be so nice to do it every year, not let another twenty-five years go by...My daughter became engaged just before we left for Florida, and the wedding is in October. We have been so busy since I got home. They are thinking about going to Captiva. We told them how nice your place...Thank you for everything you did to make our trip a dream vacation. We will spread the word about your place. Take Care."  L. & M. V., Blue Springs, MO

A Honeymoon review - with the wedding on Captiva's beach: "...We want to thank you guys again for opening your home to us last week. The wedding was as wonderful as I had imagined. The beach was beautiful and the sunsets........well, there are no words to describe the sunsets. We truly felt like we were in paradise.  ...We can't wait to return. We will always be able to come back to the same spot that we were married at for our anniversaries. If you look out the balcony, we took the beach path to the right. Directly off of the path, on the beach, where the ceremony took place. ...Please keep us in mind for the same villa and the same
week, that way we could celebrate our anniversary there. ...You guys give that  personal touch that you just can't get from large resorts that you rent from. We have been talking about your place, and showing pictures to all of our friends and coworkers. We hope everything is going well for you, and hope to stay in touch with you in the future. Again thank you very much." M. & C. S., Grover, MO

" ...We thank you for the use of your condo. The condo was perfect for our family. The location was ideal being so close to the pool and the beach. We're so glad we were able to rent it. Thank you! South Seas Resort is a very special place indeed. We think we could vacation there every year." D. & D. B., Greenville, DE.

A Honeymoon Review: "...Captiva was simply wonderful! We got married (12/30/00) in a blizzard and woke up the next morning in the sun!.....The accommodations were great and the view beautiful. We enjoyed the various places we went to eat and we saw all the movies on the island....two!...We really enjoyed the mountains of shells and did quite well finding treasures. We also did get to see dolphins near the dock, where we also had luck catching fish. The nice laid back pace was exactly what we needed and it was a great week...We can't think of much we would have wanted to was all great...Thanks again for sharing your part of paradise with us! You guys have been great. We will be sure to continue telling friends about the wonderful experience we had." J. & B. J., Portland, CT

"...we had a fabulous time in Captiva. The condo was everything we hoped for and more. We will definitely return........hopefully in the near future!!...We really can't say enough good things about our vacation at your ever-so-accommodating 'home'!!! ... Thank you so very much for all the great information on restaurants and things to do.....we agreed that it (Captiva & the condo) was one of the most beautiful, relaxing and enjoyable vacations we had ever taken." K.S. & G.F., Chicago, IL, USA

"...This ranks as one of the best vacations we've ever had. When you consider that we watched the sunrise at our lakefront home on Sunrise Lane, then saw the sunset at your beachfront home on Sunset Beach, what else can a person ask for? The condo, location and amenities were perfect! The Green Flash, Mucky Duck and Sunshine Cafe were all great recommendations. The 'Ding' Darling refuge was fantastic as were the dolphin cruise and the Useppa cruise (dolphins in groups of 4 followed us most of the way). On Thursday 2 Osprey started their nest on the perch outside the condo. Each night, we took pictures of the sunset but on Friday, we had the pleasure of dolphins playing in the sunset. I hope the pictures come out! This was the getaway that we had hoped for and look forward to next year. As L. said on the second day, 'I think we've found heaven.'" B. & L. L., N.H., U.S.A.

"...What a great setting! South Seas Plantation is so beautiful, and your condo was very comfortable, with lots of "special touches." The view from the patio was amazing - especially the sunsets! We literally collected bags of seashells. The restaurants that you recommended were also winners. We definitely plan to return!" M. & S. W., Allendale, NJ

"…We had a wonderful time. All the info that you sent us helped alot….We played golf everyday and even got some bargains along the way. The condo was wonderful…the ability to sleep so soundly in the bedroom. It was quiet, dark and cool. Great view as promised. Beach and pool access was perfect. Met friendly people also. We biked around the Darling reserve in the middle of the day…got to see many of the birds that inhabit the sanctuary. We were going to canoe in the area but ran out of time…Overall, we had a wonderful time. Thanks for being such great hosts. We will recommend to our friends and family." D.W. and A. I., Jonesborough, TN, USA

"...Well we made it back much to our dismay. Bad thing about vacations, they always end too soon. The trip was perfect. We would not change one thing if we were going back tomorrow. The Condo and Resort were just as advertised..." H. & D. L., Birmingham, AL, USA

" We are from NJ, we live near the beach, so we love being around the water, we did lots of fishing, but the best thing was jet skiing in the Gulf and having the dolphin swim around us. The Manatees were really cool to see at the marina. We have lots of pretty shells…This was the perfect vacation. Just what the Doctor ordered! Relaxation! Great Views! Clean! Nice People! Comfortable! We will be back!" E. &. L. R. Bayville, NJ 11/2000
