Lovely house on Clam Bayou

Review by Michael W.
A great stay. The house is lovely and on a large plot, beautifully landscaped, and with a fabulous pool and relaxation area. The house is comfortable with a modern if strangely arranged kitchen! It was very clean inside, but outside furniture, deck etc needed cleaning. The dock is great for fishing and watching the fish jump. We saw many birds, rabbits, lizards, and a couple of snakes. The only things we didn’t like were that there was no change of linen - never met that problem before anywhere- no hairdryer - likewise, so had to buy one. We left it so hope future guests will not need to. We also suffered a lot from insect bites, despite all the best repellents the island recommends. Because if this I would recommend Ospreys Best to a friend but warn them about insects.

Thank you so much for your review of Osprey's Nest! We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay there and enjoyed the updates throughout the home! The wildlife is definitely a huge perk to being on this part of the island! We do provide hairdryers in each of our homes and condos. If you arrived and there was not one provided, we would have been happy to bring one over to you. We do encourage our guests to call us for any of these items. We are happy to help do everything we can to help you have the best stay possible with us. We hope to see you again next year!

A Hurricane Irma Experience in Florida!

Review by Scott M.
We rented the Osprey House for the month of September 2017. We arrived September 4th. The home and grounds are wonderful and met all of our expectations. As Irma approached we evacuated 200 miles north for a week before returning. We were apprehensive about what we would find but were relieved to find no damage. Rob was very helpful at staying in communication with us and letting us know when we could return. The maintenance staff were very good. The same day we returned they had a crew cleaning up all of the storm vegetation. When we needed more propane for the grill it was delivered promptly. Except for Irma we were very pleased with our stay.

Osprey Nest June 2017

Review by Tara G.
Lovely spacious home with beautiful natural landscaping! Enjoyed watching Rosiate Spoonbills in the trees behind the bayou and other birds that would land on the dock. Easy bike ride to beach, just 1 mile from Blind Pass. But it is still good to purchase a beach pass at the rec center for full beach days and checking out other beaches.

April 2015 Osprey's Nest Rental

Best Vacation Ever!

Review by Michael B.
This home was a very pleasant surprise. We have rented houses from VRBO several times in the past. The pics are usually taken for maximum effect and the experience is not quite what we were hoping.This was the first time that the pics were beautiful and the home was even better! Rob was terrific to work with and very accommodating. Loved the privacy, the pool, the dock, the observation deck and the open spacious floor plan! We had a wonderful vacation and have already made plans to return next year!

Best Kept Secret!!!!

Review by Cassandra J.
We stayed here in January for a family vacation. We have been going to vacation rental homes instead of hotels or resorts for years. This is the best house we have ever stayed in! Comfortable beds, great kitchen, living room and beautiful views. You can fish off the dock while your kids swim in the pool! Short walk or bike ride to the beach. Crab races in Captiva on Monday and Thursday nights along with wonderful restaurants. Although most nights we stayed at the house because it is truly that amazing. The only negative I could report is that the neighbor is crabby and asked for quiet time at 1:30 in the afternoon. Rob and Charlie were great to work with, very helpful, they even pointed us in the direction of a great spa at the Tween Waters Resort. We will definitely be coming back!
