The views from our unit are truly breathtaking - see our photos for actual views. Entering our condo, you'll feel like you've been upgraded to oceanfront at a fancy hotel. There are sweeping unobstructed views of the gulf and beach from our lanai. We've even furnished the lanai with high top bistro tables and chairs so there is no looking through the railing as you sip your coffee and eat your meals. We've rented before and we stay here a lot so we know what guests want. There is no cutting corners. Our condo is stocked with every extra and amenity you can think of for your comfort and pleasure, as well as ours. Go ahead and compare. We've already hosted one couple married on the beach and returned for their one year anniversary and four honeymoon couples as a result of our romantic views and premium features.
We spared no expense on comfy beds and couches for lounging, 65 inch flat screen HDTV and Blue ray DVD player in the living room, flat panel TV's in the bedrooms, Hunter Douglas room darkening drapes in the bedrooms, FIOS, WiFi, Bluetooth stereo speakers in the living room, Keurig and Cuisinart drip coffee makers, blender, crock pot, toaster, microwave, every cooking utensil you can think of, multiple coolers, two BeachBub umbrellas, four Tommy Bahama beach chairs, four wheeled beach cart, fold out beach table, plush bath towels, plenty of beach towels, binoculars, wine glasses and even a grapefruit knife and more.
If you are not familiar with South Seas Club it is a private gated community. The club gives you a private 55 acre luxury beachfront experience at less than half of what you would pay at 5 star hotels on Marco Island, plus: recreational activities which these hotels don't have, direct access to both beaches and the large nature preserve alongside Tigertail beach, which has some of the best sea shelling and birding in southwest Florida. There is an exercise room downstairs, pickle ball courts, tennis courts, boccie, shuffleboard, boat slips for rent and a putting green.
Our unit is unique in that there is no looking out at parking lots and no looking past other buildings or through the trees - all you'll see are panoramic beach and gulf views from up high. We're directly in front of Crescent and Tigertail Beaches, where they meet and the beginning of the Tigertail Nature Preserve.
We have one of the few units where our lanai (balcony) is shaded until late afternoon so you can sit back and enjoy your breakfast, lunch or a good book in the shade and cool breeze on the 17th floor as you look out to the beach, gulf and nature preserve.
FOR TODDLERS/BABIES: Upon the request of a guest, we will install protective mesh screen on the lanai railing for your peace of mind while relaxing out there (additional fee). There is also a pack and play and a high chair available for your use.
At South Seas Club on arrival you'll drive through our security gate to an expansive resort with palm trees, manicured lawns and gardens. Park in our covered garage and enter our tower. You'll have direct beach access with a key through our private locked gate to the beach or you can head right down to our heated pool. It is not uncommon to see dolphins swimming by the shore especially in the morning. The beach by the shore also offers a great place to take a fitness walk in the morning to work off the prior day's indulgences. On the way back from the beach there are convenient stations as you come off the sand to rinse the sand off and wash off any sea shells you have collected.
The laundry room is conveniently located two doors from our condo unit. There are two large dryers and washers which are operated by refillable cards at a modest cost, about $3.00 to wash and dry per load. Given the close proximity, we simply return to our condo and return when the washer or dryer are finished. There is a trash chute conveniently located in the laundry room.
Just a short three block walk are two of the best breakfast places Marco Island has to offer, as well as Joey's and Sami's which have a great indoor/outdoor bars and pizza/pasta restaurants, bagel store and convenience store. The Esplanade restaurants, shops, marina and boardwalk is within a mile walk as are multiple restaurants, grocery stores, and souvenir/swimwear shops. The Esplanade offers complimentary valet parking as do many of the restaurants on Marco Island.
You can rent a pontoon boat from nearby Rose Marina and view the coastal waterway and see the dolphins or enjoy a few hours fishing. You can explore the Florida Everglades or take a speed boat to the Florida Keys. During the afternoon or evening you can go for drinks, lunch or dinner at beautiful, prestigious Naples which is 20 minutes away. Of course, a round of Golf is just minutes away at scenic award winning courses. A 2 hour drive to Miami to visit South Beach may be something you choose or you can make a shorter trip to other beautiful areas in south west Florida. There are a variety of seafood restaurants and other magnificent eateries on Marco Island and the entire region. Make this your vacation choice at anytime of year because the weather is always warm and wonderful.Get the full listing »
