Perfect Beach House
Our family of 5 adults, 4 year old twins and a 5 month old truly enjoyed our stay. The beautiful home is very well equipped to meet the needs of young and old, a couple hundred feet from the beach, great view, the sunset and soothing sound of the surf are amazing. Highly recommend.

We prepared and every meal together for a week, throw in the beach, pool, and hot tub to make memories that last. Our 4 year old twin grandchildren call it their favorite beach house ever.

Perfectly amazing. The Location layout and amenities were right on point.
We had an absolutely amazing family vacation on North captiva. But I have to say Bluefin is the best. The rooms, the decor, the layout, everything was very well thought out and maintained. It really could have not been more perfect. I absolutely love that every bedroom had a an en-suite. It makes multi-family travel a breeze. And I have to say, every room was a gorgeous as the next. The bunk room was my fave with the three sinks in the bathroom. We have triplet girls, it felt like it was designed just for them. They felt just like they were at home. I could go on for days, but a few things that really set this home apart, are 1) Jason is amazing to work with and very thorough. 2) The home is impeccable and the beds are ridiculously comfortable 3) The dual dishwashers in the kitchen and dishwasher in the pool kitchen make cleaning up a breeze. 4). Everything is labeled and has photos of where it goes, which makes keeping things tidy very quick and easy - this is huge when on vacation. 5) The ice maker by the pool was, in my husbands opinion, genius. And I have to agree. Oh also 6) Of course The outdoor bathroom really saves on the wear and tear in the home and is super handy. 7) The location is fantastic, my favorite beach. Every sunset was gorgeous. 8) I almost forgot all of the monogrammed touches. This may not seem like a big deal but it was so nice when taking chairs and towels to the beach, to have the logo, to make sure nothing was getting mixed with the other travelers things. I would stay at bluefin again in a heartbeat! Definitely exceeded my expectations.

My family stayed here over Christmas week 2018. The layout of the house was perfect - 3 master suites (king beds in all with attached bathrooms) and a 6-bunk room with attached bathroom (3 sinks!) for the kids, large open concept kitchen, living, and dining rooms, plenty of storage for food for all of us for the week, screened in decks on the second and third floors, and a large outdoor area on the ground level with plenty of poolside seating/lounging, nice sized pool, and hot tub. We also appreciated having golf carts to get around the island, chairs for the beach, beach towels, laundry in the home, and beach toys. I even found a small Christmas tree in the closet that we decorated with shells! The owner was very responsive and easy to work with - I had quite a few questions prior to our trip and she answered them all within a day and even offered additional information beyond my questions. I felt very secure about knowing what we needed to do to get to the island, order groceries, etc. On the island, the caretaker was also very helpful, answering our questions and offering assistance as needed. The island itself is such a relaxing environment. I loved that there were no cars... it was so peaceful. There is a lovely beach just steps down the road where we relaxed, played in the little waves, saw dolphins(!), looked for shells, and could walk either direction for quite a distance. We also saw tortoises on our road a few times. For activities, we rented a boat one day and checked out a few other islands, went out fishing with a guide and caught puffer fish (so cool!) and enough other types of edible fish to have two meals for the 12 of us, went shelling/walked along the beach several times, swam in our pool and the Club pool, played tennis, went to the gift shops, and took part in a 5k on the island to support the island fire station. Some nights we went to a few of the local bar/restaurants and other nights we stayed in to play games (available in the house) or use the hot tub. There are also kayaks available and other things, but relaxing and soaking up the sun took up most of our time! I highly recommend this home - it has everything you need for an amazing, relaxing vacation.

The house and property was absolutely gorgeous! Plenty of space to be together or to be alone!
The beach is a two minute walk from the house our family loved the natural landscape of the island and the relaxed island vibe. Fun looking for manatees and tortoises!

Perfect spot for some R&R
This is a return stay for us at Bluefin. The house perfectly meets our requirements. We love the location (just off the beach) and appreciate the privacy this home provides. The pool area is probably our favorite place to hang out. At any point during the day, you can be in the sun or in the shade. Something for everyone. The owner is amazing, ensuring anything you need is taken care of. All you need to do is relax and enjoy!
