We are travelling to Captiva Island for the first time in April 2010. We are looking to rent a vacation home for a 2 week period from April 17th to May 1st for my family and my inlaws - in total we are 6 adults (3 couples) plus a 3 year old and a 2 month old infant. Since it is the shoulder season, we are hoping to find something for about $2500 per week.
I have spent some time reading home reviews on this forum and have spoken to AMC and Royal Shell about availability. We are quite interested in Casa Shandria or Tarpon Tales but I noted the comment that Casa Shandria is a bit on the small side.
Can anyone recommend the most ideal property for our large group? AMC told me that Escapade and Captiva Villa are larger properties - comments on those?
One other question - my inlaws love to suntan by the pool but I noticed in the photos that a lot of the pools appear to be enclosed in glass. Do they still offer sun exposure?
Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide.
