Reviews for RUM COVE

The whole process start to finish was easy & assuring! The house location is perfect, close to everything you need on the island. The house accommodated us perfectly! Couple little issues we came across were addressed almost immediately. Tom & Duncan were on the ball with anything we ran by them! Any negatives I would have are not associated with the house itself. No live bait sold on the island, Pineland Marina only had bait 1 day the whole week we were there, half the boat ramp was shut down, ice is scarce & the no seeums are plentiful! Overall we enjoyed ourselves & recommend the stay at Rum Cove!

From the roof to the floor, the home is divine! Comfortable to all guests! Relaxing decor & furnishings. Space to escape... I mean space to enjoy time together!!!! One bedroom is located outside by the pool & ping pong table which provides privacy or just a bit of fun. The wind was always blowing through the palm trees that shaded the pool. We woke to sunshine & birds chirping. We had days of fun on the 2 golf carts! Bikes & Kayaks were a short, quiet walk away at the club. You could paddle the canal, the harbor or to the beach. We walked the trail even at the hottest part of the day and enjoyed every second! It led to a remote part of the island with clear waters & beaches decorated with every kind/size seashells. Every day we enjoyed the wildlife by spotting manatees in the harbor and canal. Watched & swam with dolphins. Spotted turtles & sea turtle nests. No aquarium ticket needed! This was an absolute perfect trip for the 9 of us at all ages! We brought plenty of food which was carried over by the club. We fired up the grill, the kitchen or enjoyed eating at Mangos! Bulk T-shirts from Barnacles. Pet friendly. All guests and locals friendly. We planned our next trip before we left !!!!

Like Staying at Your Own Private Resort!
5/5 Stayed Jan 2019

Rum Cove is a paradise within paradise! Easy booking, exceptional communication, personalized services, and remarkable responsiveness are what you can expect if you rent this property. My family and I stayed at Rum Cove with our kids and a few of their friends in early January and had an absolute blast. Not only is the house impeccably designed, decorated, and maintained, but it's also conveniently located to everything else on the island, making this a perfect spot to get away from it all. We particularly loved the private dock, the proximity to Mangos, the bar area near the pool, the availability of 2 golf carts, the crow's nest, and the ping pong table, on which I was still able to dominate my children. I only wish we had a private plane so we could have taken advantage of the airstrip. Beulah, who helps maintain the property, is wonderful and the owners sent us a hand-written note thanking us for staying, which was a very nice touch. As an added bonus of staying at Rum Cove, you'll have the privilege of meeting Tom Jenkins who helps manage the property. Buy him a drink at Mangos and he'll tell you the history of the island, introduce you to the locals, and share lots of great stories. North Captiva and Rum Cove are special places owned and managed by special people. Stay here and you'll never want to go anywhere else. We are fortunate and thankful for the opportunity to have made some memories here! We'll be back again very soon! Thank you, again, for a great stay.
