Grey Heron is directly on the beach on Captiva Drive, in the “Gold Coast” section of Captiva Island. This is a great location with lots of privacy and a gorgeous stretch of tropical white-sand beach. The Grey Heron main house has three large bedrooms and a rec room with a king bed and an additional sleeper sofa and ping pong table. Your own private, heated pool with in-ground spa tub is surrounded by a furnished sun deck and tropical landscaping beyond. The cascading sun decks offer magnificent views, while a shaded and screened porch offers a place to dine outdoors and enjoy cool breezes during the midday. Grey Heron has been extensively updated, including kitchen renovations. And there is plenty of room in the lovely Grey Heron Guest House, which sleeps up to six persons in three bedrooms and two baths with a full kitchen.

    a guest from Fredericksburg, TX does not recommend this vacation rental.

    An otherwise good week was marred by an overly warm house. The AC in the main house cannot keep the main level at a comfortable temperature all day. Every morning it started out at the 74 degrees set on the thermostat but rose into the upper seventies...77, 78, 79 by evening. There were fans scattered around so we knew they knew about the problem. Though management sent an HVAC repairman, he stated the system was on its "last legs" and was unable to solve the problem. Management did not offer any compensation.

    a guest from Miami, FL recommends this vacation rental

    The home and location were just as described. Very spacious. Management company staff was very professional. We rented from Saturday to Saturday. Unfortunately a tropical storm came through on Tuesday so we had debris in the pool and deck for the rest of the week.

    Mary B from Longmont, CO recommends this vacation rental

    Our vacation was amazing. The house is spacious and well cared for. Could have used more kitchen utensils, mixer, and baking pans. We ran out of dishwasher soap, dish soap,laundry soap, hand soap and had to purchase more. The beach was not crowded at all. Maybe six or seven people. It felt like we had our own private beach. Sunsets were gorgeous. Wish we could have stayed another week. I would absolutely recommend the Grey Heron vacation home.

    a guest from Manitou Springs, CO recommends this vacation rental

    Overall, this is an amazing home with a breathtaking view and close access to the beach. However, it could use an overall “upgrade”, especially in the kitchen of the Main House. The indoor “sauna” was non-functional and the master bath tub jets did not work. This was not mentioned in the house summary. While our family of 12 had a wonderful time, I have made a list of some of the issues we noted during our stay: in the Guest House, bathroom sink handle broken (right sink/right handle) and 2 TVs in bedrooms do not work - no reception.
    In the Main House, Stove glass is broken and one burner does not work. Need to label light switches in main house - they are very confusing. Microwave broken (tiny countertop microwave replacement). Not enough towels (beach or bath towels). Need more kitchen utensils. Ice maker broken in main house - ice does not come out of refrigerator door. More blankets/throws for guests. More seating in main house great room. A couple of armchairs would be nice. Multiple pool chairs were broken. Beach chairs were flimsy and cheap. Would be nice to have chaise lounges much like houses on each side.

    Overall, I nice upgrade would benefit this property.

    Fantastic location. House is dated and needs some maintenance. For the price...needs work.

    Jane I from State College, PA recommends this vacation rental

    Loved the Island, loved the house. Had a great time and booked for next year. My only suggestion would be to beef up the kitchen utilities (some of the things we missed were a tray, serving dishes and serving pieces, whisk, etc ) but this was a small thing. I give it a 5 overall

    We stayed at Grey Heron for a week in January 2020. The home is loaded with amenities, and the property is very private. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

    Grey Heron has everything you need and more. The property was clean, spacious and met all our needs for a great beach vacation. Upstairs bedroom suit does get warm during the day.

    Daniel B from Eatonton, GA recommends this vacation rental

    Very nicely updated house. The beds were comfortable and there is plenty of room in dining area for entertaining. There is a propane grill on the back deck. The pool area is very relaxing. Very short walk to the beach. Feels like a private beach as it’s far enough from the public access. The upstairs master suite does get hot in the summer but fans help with this. Overall great house and would stay here again.
