Property Details

Updated: Sep 20, 2016
Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 7 Sleeps

Nestled near Naples on a southwest Florida Island, this gated South Seas condominium offers everything you will need for an exotic tropical vacation - including an owner on Marco Island who is available 24/7 any time of year.

Located directly on the beach, adjacent to pristine, undeveloped, TigerTail Beach, this preferred unit is one of the larger units, with incredible beach, pool, and Gulf water views on one side, as well as picturesque Marco Island on the other.

Enjoy lifetime memories from your balcony, and collect shells in the warm waters of a crescent-shaped beach lagoon adjacent to your vacation home.

The living room is elegantly decorated with leather furniture. The kitchen has an open view of the dining room, living room, beach and Gulf of Mexico (kitchens in some units at the South Seas are enclosed, with no view). The master bedroom contains a king-size bed, and has gorgeous pool, beach, Gulf and sunset views. The guest bedroom has two twin beds and an elevated queen-size inflatable bed. The guest bedroom does not have access to the balcony, providing more security for children when parents are asleep. Each bedroom has a full bathroom. All rooms have wireless internet access. If you prefer, there is a cable internet connection in the living room.

The South Seas has a heated swimming pool and an exercise room. Tennis is available for an hourly fee. Covered parking is included. Boat dock rentals are available on a per-night basis.

The South Seas is adjacent to Tigertail Beach, a picturesque thirty-one acre natural preserve and shorebird nesting area. Tigertail Beach offers a picnic area with grills. There is a concession that rents inner tubes, canoes, kayaks, paddleboats, windsurfers, and electric-powered boats, which can be used to explore a tropical lagoon.

Marco Island is a warm, family-oriented community that you will enjoy any time of year.

If you are looking for a piece of paradise, consider this for a wonderful vacation.

  • 5 of 5

This condo has a perfect view of the ocean as well as the island and bridge. From the balcony we enjoyed breakfast and the beautiful beach. Every evening we watched the spectacular sunset over the ocean. The building and grounds are clean and well groomed. If only we could have stayed longer than one week!

Marco Island is a great place to visit. Weather, view and beach were great, condo was ok.

  • 3 of 5

Weather and beach were great. Walking Distance to beach is a bit far, Condo really needs a complete upgrade/renovation. Needs better beds. Beach cart and chairs in poor condition, need to be replaced. Was difficult to get laundry done due to many people using shared washer and dryer. Might stay here again if improvements made.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Comments are always appreciated. There are two beaches at the South Seas condominiums. The beach on the lagoon is about 100 yards from the pool exit. The walk across the beach to the Gulf of Mexico is about 330 yards. We live on Marco Island, keep new beach beach equipment on hand, and will exchange anything that is broken. We know that beach equipment gets a lot of normal wear and tear. This might not be visible to us when we check the condo, so let us know when something breaks. As with all concerns, please let us know as soon as possible, while you are in the unit prior to departure, so that we can make your stay as pleasant as possible. This will also help us avoid inconveniencing the next guests. The condo is updated frequently to accommodate families with children. Beds are a personal issue. Some like firm and some like soft. The twin beds in the guest bedroom are firm to withstand “active” children. The king bed in the master bedroom is premium quality, recent, and medium firmness with a “pillow top.” As can be seen in the photos above, the kitchen has black 'granite' counter tops, a modern glass cooktop range, upgraded cabinetry, and a recent dishwasher and refrigerator. Living room furniture is leather, and was recently replaced. Both bedrooms and living room have large cable digital flat panel TVs with HDMI ports for hookup to the blueray DVD, or to the HDMI port on your computer if you have Netflix etc. The South Seas does not permit washers and dryers in the units, but there is a laundry room on each floor. Laundry facilities are usually not busy, but can become congested during holiday vacation weeks just prior to departure. Again, thank you for your review, and we do hope that you will visit us again.

Perfect Honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

This Gulf view condo is a MUST see and stay. We stayed here for our honeymoon and the views alone are worth the cost. The accommodations, including but not limited to beach chairs, coolers, pool access and umbrellas made this vacation so worthwhile for those flying in with very little. The condo itself was open concept and spacious! Literally a Gulf view from the kitchen sink while washing dishes.

This is NOT your typical hotel stay on Marco (talking of Hilton, Marriott, etc). This is because you have access to more remote and private parts of the beach as opposed to the hotels where the beach and pools are extra crowded with tourists. Plus why pay extra for chairs and umbrellas? Take it from me, I've stayed at the hotels and felt crowded. But not at this condo.

The remote beach access is a short stroll, so unless you're the type that cannot enjoy the beauty of a 5-minute walk (mind you across breath-taking beach) then this unit may not be for you. However, if you're looking for picture perfect settings and peaceful surroundings, this unit IS for you. The pool can be busy at times, but nothing like the hotels.

We woke up to sunrises everyday on the kitchen side of the condo, and gorgeous sunsets on the living room/bedroom/balcony side of the condo. It was comfortable, cool and better than we could ask for. And the price point made this a great deal!!

Picture this...waking up to your own brewed coffee, staring at the Gulf, packing a lunch and taking a short stroll to a remote part of the beach. (Being close enough to use your own facilities). Later driving a couple miles to the Snook Inn for happy hour for 1/2 priced drinks (Betty and Kathy will serve you well). Then coming back to the condo balcony for the best sunset. Plus plenty of restaurants to choose from (Da Vinci's for upscale Italian, Doreen's for eclectic breakfast, etcetera). You can also rent kayaks and other beach items from the town beach also a couple minutes walk from the condo along the lagoon.

Best vacation, simply put!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the excellent review. We're glad that your visit met or exceeded your expectations. The South Seas is at the northern end of Crescent Beach at the beginning of Tigertail Beach, which is a protected and secluded area. There are actually two beaches, the continuous Gulf beach plus another beach on the lagoon. Both are relatively private most of the time. Thank you again for staying with us! We hope that you choose to visit us again!

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

The short version of this review is that the accommodations, the beach and Bob were all great. My family and I had a great time on Marco Island. Book with Bob!

Here’s a longer version for those still deciding.

We arrived on 7/11/15 and departed on 7/18/15.

The beach: It’s wide and groomed often. There are many shells just waiting for you to gather them up. We found several nice specimens. The water was warm and had rolling waves which we enjoyed on our rafts. There wasn’t a crowd all week and this was the most relaxing beach vacation we’ve ever had. With the breeze and the umbrella the heat wasn’t an issue. There are lots of shells in the sand, but I was able to walk the 2.4 miles to the other end of the beach barefoot without incident.

The condo: It really felt like home. It wasn’t hoity toity or overdone. The kitchen had all the pots, pans, etc we needed to prepare meals. Sitting on the large balcony quietly streaming Pandora on a small speaker and looking out over the lagoon to the gulf was our favorite nighttime activity. We even got to see Venus so bright she was casting light onto the water of the gulf and the lagoon. Jupiter was clearly visible as well. It was a new moon the week we were there which helped the planets and stars shine brilliantly. One other aspect of the condo was that EVERYONE there was nice. Guests, residents and staff.

Bob: Bob was great. He was very communicative and helpful throughout the booking and payment process. He provided all kinds of beach gear and as I mentioned the kitchen was fully ready for use. He made some suggestions for dinner and an air boat ride in the Everglades (Wooten’s). The paperwork he provides and ease of check in and check out are small details that help in the enjoyment of the vacation. Nobody wants to start off or end a vacation with some pain in the rear process. Bob made it all very easy. We really appreciated that.

Thanks Bob for helping us have an excellent vacation!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review! We're glad that everything met or exceeded your expectations. Marco Island has about 5 miles of Gulf beach, with the South Seas centrally located on the beach. To the south is 2.5 miles of beachfront residences, restaurants, and activities, such as jet skis and Hobie Cats. To the north is the Tigertail Beach area, which has a lagoon and nature preserve without construction. We furnish beach equipment, such as a beach umbrella, beach chairs, beach towels, and a cooler on wheels, but also for your convenience are cabanas for rent on Tigertail Beach, right next to the condo. The unit has free high speed broadband WiFi Internet. Feel free to stream music, or connect laptops to any of the 3 large flat panel digital TVs to watch your favorite movies on Netflix. It was our pleasure having you stay with us! We hope that you choose to visit us again!

Location

Activity and Interests

Parasailing, catamaran and jet-ski rentals are available on the

beach. Golf, sailing and bicycle/scooter rentals are near by on

Marco Island.

There are many excellent restaurants offering a variety of

cuisines.

Within 30 minutes driving distance are airboat tours, and

the famous Williams Roadside Park, which offers exciting views of

Florida alligators in their natural habitat. Floridians travel

hundreds of miles to show this popular attraction to friends and

relatives, so it's an adventure you'll not want to miss.

Airports:

1/2 hour to Naples; 1 hour to Ft. Myers; 1 1/2 hours to Ft.

Lauderdale; 2 hours to Miami; and 3 hours to Tampa. Tampa has many

discount flights. For private aircraft, there is the Marco Island

Airport which has fuel for all aircraft, including jet fuel.

Note: Major car rental agencies in Florida allow rentals from

one Florida airport to be dropped-off at another Florida airport

with no drop charge. If your family's best airfare is to Miami, for

example, renting a car in Miami with a drop in Naples costs no more

than the local rental fee.
