Spectacular panoramic views, great beachfront location, Free wifi, and newly remodeled down to the walls – you’ll never want to leave! Watch beautiful sunsets every night on the large wrap-around balcony of this 2 bedroom/2 bathroom condo, one of the few front-end units. The beach is your front yard – you can spend hours strolling along miles of white sand, playing in the warm gulf waters, sunbathing, or rent a paddle boat or kayak to explore the mangroves, all just outside your unit. World famous shelling awaits you every day at the water’s edge, and you will see the most sought after views of the island out of every window. The condo overlooks Tigertail Beach, an important nature reserve where sea turtles and migrating birds nest and rest. Looking to the left, the expansive, white sand Crescent Beach stretches off into the distance. The renovation finished in Jan 2016, so this is a newly finished unit with new furnishings and all new appliances! Our condo is one of the few front units, and is on the 17th floor, so there are gorgeous views from every window. It is beautifully appointed, with a casual but elegant feel, and a spa-style master bathroom. The unit has 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, a fully supplied kitchen, WiFi, Living room and Master bedroom w/ flatscreen HDTV, Dining area, and wrap-around balcony. The Master bedroom has a King bed, full view of the beach and Gulf, access to the balcony, and a spacious spa-style master bathroom, featuring a 7 foot walk-in shower with multiple fixtures and body sprays. The Guest bedroom has a Queen bed, full view of the beach and Gulf, balcony access, and an extra long trundle to allow more sleeping choices (2 adults maximum in the room. "Ask Owner A Question" before clicking "Request to Book" if you have 5 guests - I almost always respond within 1 hour) Inside the condo is quiet, as the A/C system is located in a hall closet outside of the unit, versus in a closet within. Located at the quiet end of the island, the condo is in South Seas Towers, the only gated community on Marco Island that offers a beach, large heated pool, tennis courts, and boating slips available for lease. The community also offers a fitness center, pickle ball, shuffleboard, boardwalk and dock. Joey's Pizza and Pasta House, Verdi's American Bistro, Doreen's Cup of Joe, Nene's Kitchen and The Italian Deli are just a half mile stroll away (per Google).
Relax at your "home-away-from-home", either inside the unit in the comfortable reclining leather chairs in the sofa, watching the sunset from the Dining room or Balcony, or going to the beach with our beach chairs and umbrella on the beach cart. Or, go out to explore nearby. The Everglades are a great place to spend the day exploring by car or boat, located right to the south of Marco. Staying on the island, you can rent a boat to travel through “Ten Thousand Islands”, or charter a tour to do some offshore fishing, or to see dolphins, manatees and sea turtles. Florida alligators are at several nearby locations in their natural habitat. History buffs may want to visit Marco Museum, which is set up as a Calusa Indian village w/moat, or travel to Fort Meyers and visit Thomas Edison’s winter estate and research laboratories. To go farther afield, you can take a high-speed tour boat to Key West in the Florida Keys. The trip takes just 3 hours, and leaves from Marco directly in the summer months.
For nature lovers and bird watchers: According to the Great Florida Birding & Wildlife Trail, Tigertail Beach/Sand Dollar Island nature reserve is “One of the best all-around birding spots in southwest Florida. The tidal lagoon at the beach offers great views of shorebirds including Wilson’s, Piping and Snowy Plovers, as well as Least Terns, Roseate Spoonbills, Red Knots and a host of other sought-after species. This corner of Marco Island is a true “hotspot” during migrations, and rarities occur here often.” Birds commonly seen from our patio include Herons, Egrets, Skimmers, Terns and Osprey, and Pelicans flying close by at window height. A variety of shorebirds are seen at the beach. Bald Eagles and Burrowing Owls nest just a few minutes away on the island, and the beach at the north end of Tigertail is a critical nesting and resting area for the Least Tern, Black Skimmer and Piping Plover. Marco Island is on the pathway of one of the world's busiest migration flyways, and it is also a nesting area for Loggerhead Sea Turtles. Many premier nature and birding spots are close by, including the Everglades, J.N. Ding Darling Nat’l Wildlife Refuge, and Audubon’s Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, home to the largest remaining stand of old growth Bald Cypress in North America.
Whether you come to park and relax, or to have a beautiful home base while you explore, this condo will be a wonderful "Home away from Home" for your holiday.
