Condo, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 4 Sleeps

Luxury one bedroom Gulf of Mexico beachfront vacation rental condo at

South Seas Island Resort on Captiva Island, Florida has instant and

direct access to one of the best beaches on the Gulf Coast of


Captiva is a tropical barrier island located off the Gulf Coast near

Fort Myers, Florida that is connected to the western tip of its

larger neighbor, Sanibel Island.

Getting to Sanibel and Captiva Islands is easy. Our beachfront

Captiva vacation villa is a pleasant 55 minute drive from Southwest

Florida International Airport (airport code RSW). From the airport

take Daniels Parkway. If traveling by car on Interstate 75, take exit

231 to the right, which is Daniels Parkway. Follow the Sanibel and

Captiva beach signs to Summerlin Road. Turn left onto Summerlin.

Follow Summerlin to the Causeway, then on to Sanibel and

Captiva Island.

Enjoy the scenic ride along Captiva Drive from Turner Beach past

private beachfront estate homes and past the 4-way stop in Captiva

Village, until you reach the gated entrance of South Seas Island

Resort, formerly known as South Seas Plantation. Unlike Naples, Marco

Island, Siesta Key, or most of the Barrier Islands on the Florida

Gulf Coast, you won't find any high rises here. The Resort is a

330 acre beach lover's paradise that occupies the northern third of

Captiva Island. Here you'll find 2.5 miles of unspoiled beach and

spectacular day-ending sunsets right outside you?re your condo door.

While the beach on Captiva is open to the public, public beach access

and parking is limited to Turner Beach at the South end of Captiva

Island, near Sanibel, and the beach at the end of Captiva Drive.

Therefore, the beach within South Seas Island Resort is not


Our condo is more than just a vacation rental. It is our personal

beachfront vacation home that has been completely redecorated and

refurnished. You'll find most of the comforts of home, including a

new, fully appointed and equipped kitchen for guests who wish to dine

in, or who just want to enjoy the panoramic views of the Gulf of

Mexico from the dining area, living room, or screened lanai, while

sipping their favorite beverage.

The living room entertainment center houses a 27' Sony TV and Denon

stereo with a multi-disc DVD changer. It also contains a wide

selection of music CD's, several movie DVD's, and a small library of

books for your vacation enjoyment. Additionally, for a small fee,

guests can obtain a library card at the public library located in the

Village, and check out music CD's, DVD's and books. The bedroom has

new furniture, a comfortable king bed, Casablanca ceiling fan, and a

second remote cable TV with DVD player. It also has a walk-in closet

and adjoining walk-through bathroom. The queen sofa sleeper in the

living room provides additional sleeping accommodations for two.

Captiva Island is a special vacation and holiday destination for

discerning guests who value the Island's low-density, natural beauty,

casual lifestyle, and quiet anonymity.

Many of the Island's best restaurants and quaint shops, are located

in the 'Village', a picturesque 3-block segment of Andy Rosse Lane,

which is a short, romantic walk long the beach or a few blocks by

road from South Seas gated entrance. Unless you make the 15 minute

drive to Sanibel or decide to take a day trip off Island, you may not

get back in the car until departure. Just remember where you put

the keys!

Whether your favorite Captiva vacation pastime is walking along the

beach in search of shells, playing in the warm waters of the Gulf of

Mexico, surf fishing, dining and listening to music in Captiva

Village, or just relaxing on the beach with a great book, a Captiva

beach vacation will create memories for a lifetime. If you are

considering a Florida beach vacation, we'd love to share our condo

with you. Please send us an email or give us a call to discuss how

our one bedroom villa, Jewel of Captiva, may fit your needs.

Perfect Winter Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Thanks Roger and Barb for renting to us again this year. Your Captiva condo is perfect for a January vacation away from a Midwest winter. We are repeat clients since 2012 and once again reserved a week for next year. Your condo is warm and comfortable and just steps away from the beach and swiming pool. We have enjoyed ourselves more each successive year. Thanks again

Love this condo and view!

  • 5 of 5
As first-time visitors to Captiva, our experience was incredible much due to Roger's fabulous condo! We felt at home immediately upon walking through the door. It's comfy, warm, and clean with a fantastic view and steps away from the beach -- all important features to us! The kitchen is nicely equipped which is vital for us as I love to cook and grills by the pools are really nice. We practically had one of the pools all to ourselves! Of course, the rest of the "Captiva experience" was a great time, too! We're planning on returning soon to enjoy Roger's condo and the best of island vacationing!

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5
Roger, Charlie & I would like to thank you for our wonderful vacation at your condo on Captiva. We found a lovely place to make our time off one of the most relaxing vacations we have had. The condo was in excellent condition and the access to the beach and pool were a real plus. The sunsets were beautiful.
I would also like to thank you for the recommendations of restaurants and things to do while at the beach.
We look forward to returning soon.

Thanks for renting your beach villa to us for the week of January 7 to 14. What a nice place to stay and enjoy the easy access beach and Captiva Village. Your condo was exceptionally clean with comfortable furnishings and modern appliances and kitchen. In fact, when we returned the keys on departure, we made a reservation for your place for the same week next year.

Thanks again Roger. We really enjoyed our vacation.

A Great Anniversary Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5
We were married on Captiva at sunset 2 years ago and stayed at Roger's place. Loved it so much we decided to come back and celebrate our 2nd anniversary. The only downfall is that you have to leave. The villa is very comfortable, appliances and kitchen is updated and very nice. Very clean. It is so quiet and peaceful. PARADISE! We will definitley be back!

Owner's Response: Scott and Suzanne,
Happy Anniversary and thanks for your kind words. Captiva is just a special place to relax and forget about the rest the world for a little while. No high-rise hotels, miles of unspoiled beaches to explore, and such a safe, easy stroll along the beach (day or night)to the quaint restaurants in the Village. You're right. The only downfall is having to say goodbye. No matter how often or for how long I'm at the condo, leaving is hard, knowing I'm not going to wake up to the Gulf of Mexico tomorrow. We look forward to having you back again. Roger

The condo was very comfortable and clean. The furniture was comfortable. The kitchen appliances were all excellent.
The view was good and we enjoyed the pool. The condo was close enough to the restaurants and shops that we could walk. (.6 miles) We would go back!!
