Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 4 Sleeps
This is a beautiful condominium with a breathtaking beach front view, right from your balcony! The highly desired end-unit on the 16th floor has windows in each bedroom and the living room which give the unit a bright and spacious feel. You can view miles down the beach from the covered balcony or the whole end of the island (also beautiful) from the front door. It comes with a fully equipped kitchen, two spacious bedrooms and closets, two full baths and most all the things you need to enjoy your vacation on Marco Island!
Enjoy the condominium's heated swimming pool and hot tub and two beautiful tennis courts. Walk out to the beach for sunning, shelling or reading at your leisure, or walk next door to the Apollo for lunch or cocktails. Island shopping, restaurants, a movie theater, bookstore, convenience store and beach sport rentals are all within walking distance as well. There are many local activities to enjoy including golfing, biking, boating, sailing, jet skiing, para sailing and trolley tours. Whether your vacation speed is slow and easy or activities galore, you can take your pick!
We completed a remodel of the unit in the Fall of 2010 which included new ceramic tile flooring throughout, new showers and vanities in both bathrooms with granite countertops, and new carpet in both bedrooms!
Wonderful place to relax!

Wonderful place to relax!
A wonderful Christmas
The condo is well maintained and had all the amenities available to make the stay even more special. There were plenty of beach chairs and umbrellas for your use along with beach towels and we saw several items for children to play with at the beach.
What a great way to wake up each day and see the dolphins playing and the pelicans sweeping in for food. Breakfast was so relaxing on the balcony with this entertainment. And at sunset, you had a fantastic unobstructed view which made for some outstanding pictures
There were plenty of restaurants within walking distance or just a short drive away. Sunset Grille, located next door, was convenient and even available for drinks on the beach. Even the Marriott and Hilton were within walking distance on the beach. I truly could not have asked for a better location, better condo, and better amenities than #1601 provided for us.
There are plenty of water related activities close by at Caxambas Park which is within walking distance. We took the sailing and shelling catamaran trip which was well worth the money. We came back with a lot of shells from this trip but you can also find a lot on the beach as well. You can also fish from the dock or arrange to rent jet ski's which leave from this park.
The pool area was clean and although we did not use it nor the hot tub, it was packed each day. There are plenty of chairs...but get down there early to stake your claim.
Maria was great to work with and explained everything that was needed to include the detailed letter from her. I would highly recommend this condo for your next trip to Marco Island.
Beautiful condo, wonderful stay

Best beach vacation ever
The condo was stocked, and I mean stocked, with beach toys of all kinds (sand shovels to boogie boards), beach towels, chairs, etc. The kitchen was well stocked also, so we hit the local grocery and saved tons of time and money by eating in for breakfast and lunch every day. For dinner we could walk to the Sunset Grille next door at the Apollo or down the beach to Stilts at the Marriott Vacation Club (both with plenty of reasonable menu items, though you can go high-end if you like). Loads of other great places in short driving distance.
Our condo choice came down to a toss-up between Sea Winds and the South Seas (roughly the same price range), and I'm SO glad I chose Sea Winds. All units directly face the beach, whereas most other places (including SS) angle their buildings this way and that so that they have more rooms with a "beach" view but it's certainly not the full-on view we had. Also, South Seas is much further from the actual surf than we were (about half a mile of sand), so the surf sounds were minimal at best (I could not hear the ocean when standing by the South Seas beachfront). My husband so loved the 1601 balcony that it alone was worth the week's tab.
Needless to say, the corner unit just rocks in every way. And 1601 was perfect -- I patted myself on the back almost constantly this past week for booking it. A shout-out also to the Sea Winds manager, Pam, who was always very friendly and helpful (printing our boarding passes on the last day). We hated to leave Sea Winds. It was the best vacation I could've imagined. Thanks again, Maria!
It is difficult to properly portray the view from the 16th floor balcony, and "beach view" can mean so many things. It was nice to hear some of the things you enjoyed doing while there.
Thanks also for the comparison with South Seas, as I have tried to describe this to renters who are considering South Seas vs. Sea Winds. There is a huge difference, of course, both in the location with regards to the beach as well as the surrounding area, but it will be nice for future renters to see it in your review.
I also forget the value of some of the little things, like the boogie boards and sand castle building supplies, but of course those things got there from our kids' weeks of fun in vacations past!
Thanks again for your time and effort in putting together such a nice and informative review!
