“A very special house on a very special island”

Las Olas continues to be a prime rental on North Captiva. It has everything you need for a great vacation away from it all. This was our fifth stay here and each one has been special. Having a dog friendly place is wonderful and our little pup loves it here. The sand roads, the beach, the park and the pool area are all favorites for her – not to mention the rides in the golf cart. This house truly is an oasis and we once again had a fabulous time. Please read my other reviews including 'You can stop searching NOW'.

“Simply The Best”

Our family and our 4 legged two labs loved this house. Very comfortable, spacious, great location.. Nothing was left out.. Total privacy, the home in set back from road with lush landscaping all around home. You really never have to leave the home. A great house for relaxing with friends and family. Take a swim, play pool or ping pong in the covered area or escape off to a porch with a book.I couldn't imagine anyone being disappointed staying here

“This place was simply AMAZING!”

This place was the best rental we have ever stayed in. We traveled here with our 23-26 year old sons and their girlfriends to celebrate various graduations from college. Owner Steve was incredibly timely with responses and information anytime I contacted him. Helen and Mark, property caretakers, picked us and our luggage/groceries up from the marina and showed us everything we needed to know about the property. They were also extremely helpful and responsive. The house itself is simply lovely with every amenity available including 2 golf carts to cruise around the island, beach chairs and towels, sea kayaks which we used every day, pool, hot tub, pool/ping pong play area, FULLY stocked kitchen including spices, I could go on and on. It is located close to the beach and also the state park hiking trail. Our adult children summed it up best..."Mom, you really knocked it out of the park with this rental...can we make this an annual event?"

Liked best: Every amenity has been thought of in this home. Also enjoyed the seclusion of the island.
Liked least: It is a three story house and the kitchen is onthe thrid floor so you must haul all of your groceries upi three flights of stairs...not much of a sacrifice to stay in this lovely home.

“Amazing Stay in Every Way!”
Reviewed 6 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

When I rented The Las Olas property, I was unaware at first that it was located on an Island accessible only by Ferry. Steve the owner assured me that both his home and North Cativa Island were magical and he was so right! We loved every minute of our stay and wished we have reserved to stay longer.

The house is beautifully decorated, well equipped and has amazing views of both the gulf and bay. We watched the sunrise every morning from the top observation deck and many sunsets too.

We loved eating on the third floor deck, sleeping in the hammock, playing pool and ping pong and most of all love the nice sized pool and hot tube.

The beach and bay are both a short walking distance from the home, which made beach going very convenient.

We took the kayaks out to the sand bar one day and found many beautiful shells. We walked every inch of the beach and roads on the island, although you can also get around with the golf carts provided with the home.

Steve is an amazing home ower. He is very responsive without being intrusive. He cares about you as a guest and has created one of the most beautiful and relaxing VRBOs I've ever rented.

As for the island, there is so much I could say. We loved visiting the Preserve and riding our fat tire rental bikes on the trails. It was so very peaceful on North Captiva. The lack of cars and sparce residence make this the perfect vacation spot for those in need of some serious down time.

We've been home for a few days and I really miss the Island. I will be returning hopefully every year and I will always stay at Las Olas... So many good times and good memories!

“This is the one!”
Reviewed 25 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

There is not one single detail overlooked in this home and its amenities. The home is maintained with great care and detail. When I rent a vacation home, I want it to feel like home, and this hit the mark. Here is a breakdown of what you can expect when you arrive and stay at Las Olas:

Booking and Customer Service
The owner responded quickly to our reservation request and questions regarding the property. Upon arrival we were met by Andrew who took us and all of our luggage and provisions to the house. He was available all week to answer any questions we had. Andrew was genuine, friendly and knowledgeable about the island.

Linens and Paper Goods
The bed linens are super soft and comfy. Having 2 kings was a big plus. The bath towels are really bath sheets! They are very luxurious compared to what most rental homes have. This might seem silly, but even the toilet paper, tissues and paper towels were of the highest quality.

Kitchen
The kitchen fully stocked and is open to the great room and screened porch. I mean FULLY stocked! There is even a trash compactor and when you have to walk down 3 flights of stairs to take the trash out, this is a bonus. There is plenty of space, pots, pans, mixing bowls, flatware, sharp knives, kitchen towels, etc. There was even a Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer and ice cream maker. Another nice touch was that the owners label every drawer and cabinet so that you know where everything belongs. In such a well stocked kitchen, this was very helpful. There is also a gas grill by the pool that cooks great!

Living Spaces
This house is very open and airy, but still feels cozy. The great room is large and has plenty of comfortable seating, There is Direct TV, tons of books to read and lots of games. Our favorite area was the screened porch off of the kitchen and great room. It has plenty of relaxed seating, ceiling fans and a very large dining table. Its the perfect spot anytime of the day. The crows nest was used every night for star gazing! Renting a house with a pool is a must on North Cap and this pool doesn't disappoint! The ground level is a bonus with a ping-pong table, a pool table and MORE great seating.

As you have read, I can't say enough about this great property! The listing is accurate. The house was clean and well maintained and I would highly recommend it.
