Ok.. North Captive Island vacations are wonderful... but you have to be up for an "adventure" to get there. My wife and I enjoyed 4 days a few years ago in "The Green Flash" a wonderful beachfront home with a fantastic view. We saw that The Green Flash is closer to the beach .. by many feet due to eroding beach... but still looks like a fantastic venue.
Ok.. so we had 6 adults and 3 kids. 10 year old Abby 3 year old Ellie and 18 month old Paul. We cam into RSW Friday nite and stayed at Springhill Suites. All good.
Utilized Pine Island Taxi who arrived in a high top ford transit van which would accommodate probably 12 with luggage and enough room for our Publix food order pickup... and booze stop .. same shopping center. Coral Shores.
Left Publix for a short drive.. to Island Seafood... Andy there will hook you up with Grouper Snapper and shrimp... then to the North Captiva Island Club Reception Center.. Check in there.. unload your stuff... tag it with your house number... Your stuff goes in a truck.. to the marina.. to a boat... to the island. You and yours go into another shuttle... to the marina... to a ferry to the island. Depending on check in time... you may have to hang at the NCIC pool.. have lunch.. relax... or you may be lucky like us and your house if ready. Our house manager Jason met us at the dock .. set us up with golf carts took us to the house.. gave us a tour with instructions on all the technology... and left us in good hands to enjoy our vacation.
We enjoyed the pool beach kayaking in the bay rented a boat for the day did I say walked the beach ate at the Boat House Barnicles and ordered more seafood from Andy at Island Seafood. Mangos will order for you or you can call Andy and it comes over to Barnacles on Island Girl Water Taxi same day. $15 service charge... worth every penny.

So the house is fantastic.... everything you need for a great vacation. We took too much food... but that was ok. Even the mid week food trip to fill in with some major items like steaks.. But I'd say lean it down a bit. We had the three kids so we wanted to make sure we were covered for them. I think our food bill for 9 was $750 for the week. Not including adult beverages. The house has a water purifier at the sink so bottle water was not needed. Just take along containers for your drinking water to take to the beach and such.

The three bedrooms ... masters were great. Nan and I took the master on the top floor off the living room dining room kitchen area. Isolated from the kids. Good call. The second floor rooms were great. The bunk room for the kids is outstanding.

Stairs. You will lose a few pounds.. three flights to the top floor. Lucky the NCIC folks deliver your luggage and put it where its supposed to go... tip them well and they will come back on departure day to pick up your stuff. It does have to be on the porch on departure day.

So.. advice you say. Pack Light !!! I took double what I needed. Really .. 2-3 pair of shorts couple of t shirts.. couple of those summer long sleeve anti sun shirts... cabelas had them 4 pair under shorts... Maybe one nicer short/shirt combo for dinner at The Boat House... just because its nice ... there is a washer and dryer (take pods). But you can really get buy with a small suitecase.

Bug Spray and Sun Screen. Yes.. the skeeders are everywhere. Especially after 6pm and in the morning.. ok.. most of the time. Deep Woods Off was the only one that worked for us. Hats... anything to help keep the sun off of you. Sunscreen must be re applied so if you are out like in a boat.. wear those long sleeve shirts and re apply that sunscreen every couple of hours.

Departure... basically same as getting there.... like I said... not necessarily easy... but still worth it.

I can say that everything was as advertised... with one exception... I think that the words Beachfront is a little of a stretch for the description of this house. Not that the 300 ft walk to the beach is any big deal... and the house would stand on its own without the Beachfront description.... but in my humble opinion... not beachfront. There are many homes beachfront... and sure.. they are nice too I am sure... I think that the ammenities this home has makes up for the short walk to the beach. not a big deal. I just don't think it should be advertised as beachfront.

Would we go back to Bluefin... absolutely. I think we did pretty good this trip. Not much more we would do different other than pack a little lighter and not take as much food as we did. Maybe rent a boat for another day.

Ok.. the Boathouse was a nice meal. Little pricy but a nice night out away from the family... Barnicles... nice beachy bar restaurant... pricy too... but good food.
Tripple tail snapper sammyich was great.

So.. put North Captiva on your list... Pick a house ... do your research... and enjoy the adventure.

“A wonderful relaxing experience.”
Reviewed July 25, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We absolutely loved our stay at Bluefin Beach house, this home is absolutely beautiful with amazing views from all angles. We only had a short walk to the beach which allowed us to come and go as we needed or wanted too. This rental provides everything you could want for a family vacation. Our group ranged from ages 2 to 60 and we all had an amazing time on North Captiva Island.

Reviewed April 6, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

If you are OK with provisioning your food and beverage, handling the easy ferry ride for a week in a beautiful house with easy access to the beach, this is the place for you! You have 2 golf carts to get around, you don't have to worry about the kids, and the house is perfect!

“Best stay ever”
Reviewed August 4, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Read the title of this house "New Lux Beach Front Home w/ Pool/Spa". It is exactly what you get. Me and my wife, our two sons and 6 grandchildren (age 3-15) had a wonderful stay at Bluefin Beachhouse. If you want to relax and enjoy this is the place you are looking for. Amanda, the owner, and Jason (caretaker on the island) was great to work with. Dont hesitate. Contact Amanda for your next stay, you will not be disapointed.

“Exceptional Beach Retreat”
Reviewed November 3, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

I have stayed at the Blue Fin Beach house yearly for several years now and oh what an experience. The interiors are beautiful, just out of architectural digest . The home is well maintained and the care taker Jason lives on the island which is a plus if you need anything or have a question about the home. Every stay there has been hassle free, and the owners Mandy and John couldn’t be nicer or more accommodating . No detail has been overlook in this 5 star property which is meticulously maintained. If you want an experience of a lifetime on an island that that is breathtakingly beautiful I suggest you consider the BlueFin as your next escape. I know I would not consider staying anywhere else.
PS: Mandy the new exterior landscaping is fabulous and only adds to the tropical feel of the home. Just beautiful !

Bluefin Beach House was the perfect location for our annual "Camp MamiePapaWana" week with our children and their families. The home was clean, luxurious, and well appointed for all ages! Our 4 grandchildren (under the age of 5) thoroughly enjoyed the pool, hot tub, golf cart rides and the many, many toys and games available for their use! Everything was very well maintained.

Amanda and was attentive to all of my questions in preparation of our visit and even accommodated our request for an additional day to fit our travel schedule.

I cannot think of one thing that the home lacks (besides a 5th bedroom for our growing family).
