Overview

About the property

Beach view in all rooms, large wraparound balcony, front unit (closest to beach)

*July 8-17 Special: 2 free days added to a 1 week rental* Spectacular panoramic views, great beachfront location, Wifi, and newly remodeled down to the walls – you’ll never want to leave! Watch beautiful sunsets every night on the wrap-around balcony of this 2 bedroom/2bathroom condo, one of the few front-end units. The beach is your front yard – you can spend hours strolling along miles of white sand, sunbathing, playing in the warm gulf waters, 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! The condo is beautifully appointed, with a casual but elegant feel, and a spa style master bathroom. The unit has 2 bedrooms (King, and Queen with trundle, both with full beach views), 2 baths, a fully supplied kitchen, WiFi, living room w/ flatscreen HDTV, dining area, and wrap-around balcony. The spa-style master bathroom features a 7 foot walk-in shower with multiple fixtures and body sprays. The condo is one of the few front units, and it is on the 17th floor, so there are gorgeous views from every window. Inside the condo is also 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.

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 the patio include Herons, Egrets, Skimmers, Terns and Osprey. Pelicans, and 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.

Why Carol Shapiro chose Florida South Gulf Coast

We love to be so close to many different nature places, while being able to see amazing views of nature even if we stay inside! The Everglades are close by, and we love the birdwatching right from our windows.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo has so many beautiful and panoramic views! Even when we had torn everything down to the concrete walls and floors during renovation, you could just gaze out onto the Gulf, the two beaches, or the Nature Reserve and enjoy being in the condo! You can see sunsets, watch the puffy white clouds and their shadows moving across the water, and even the occasional storms are fun to watch through the huge bank of windows. It is like being outside, but you are inside. Add the casual/elegant decoration and our leather recliners, and it is a pretty wonderful place to relax and enjoy! We hope you consider coming to experience for yourself.

WOW!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow is what my husband and I both said when we walked in the door of this property. We were impressed from the moment we opened the door. The view is stunning in every direction. The furnishings are comfortable and stylish. The wrap around balcony is huge! It was a little windy a few days and all we had to do to get out of the wind was move to another spot. The master bed is comfortable and nicely dressed. The master bath shower is to die for! I can't wait until I need a bathroom remodel at my house, I'm going to "borrow" a few ideas! Access to the beach is quite easy. We saw dolphins and plenty of pelicans! Even saw a couple of pink flamingos and I don't mean the plastic kind! There are so many shells on the beach. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance or even just a short drive . Walked the beach every day. Overall the property is exceptional. I will definitely be back! Thank you to the owners for sharing their beautiful property.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay was perfect, from the beautiful, pristine condo, to Carol being a wonderful host. Our family has been traveling to Marco for 25+ years, staying at South Seas, and this was the best condo we've had the pleasure of spending our vacation at. The panoramic view is incredible! Condo has all necessary amenities you could want, kitchen fully equipped, beach towels, coolers, beach chairs, etc. Bathrooms are beautifully renovated. Bedding in both rooms is wonderful. Not one complaint. Thank you to Carol and Dan for making our stay so great!

Stunning views and great accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary traveling to Marco Island. We wanted it to be special and it truly was. The condo has stunning views of the Gulf, the beach, and wildlife preserve area. Accommodations were wonderful. We felt right at home and enjoyed the area of Marco Island and Naples.

PERFECT!!!!

  • 5 of 5

You won't go wrong renting this condo. It is completely updated and so nicely decorated. It has such a nice homey feel! And the views...the views from this condo are spectacular. When we rented it, we had no idea how expansive the views were. From this unit, you can see all the way down from Cape Marco to Tiger Tail Beach. There are not many condos which offer that view. We brought our two teenage kids and the condo provided plenty of room for everyone to have a little bit of their own space! The building has all the amenities you need...workout room, washer/dryers, pool, tennis courts, etc. The owners were so easy to deal with and provided excellent recommendations. One of the recommendations was the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, which was one of our favorite activities on this trip. I can't wait until we get a chance to come back!

Great, clean, and newly furnished condo with beautiful views of the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 really enjoyed our one week stay at this condo. It had a very well supplied and modern kitchen, and was very easy to prepare nice meals there. Also, the beach supplies provided...beach chairs, beach towels, a cart, games, etc. were well appreciated and used daily. We enjoyed walking on and shelling on the beach, watching the dolphins in the gulf, swimming, and walking and biking in the area. We played pickleball, rented bikes and rode all around the island. We liked many nearby restaurants and grocery stores close to the condo. Everything was very well maintained and easy to vacation there.

My only complaint is having to wash any extra towels or sheets used or else being charged an extra fee. It seems after staying a week, the cleaning fee should cover extra towels used by a family of 5.

I would highly recommend this condo to anyone!!!

Location

Our condo is located on the beach of the Gulf of Mexico in Southwest Florida, on Marco Island. We are beachfront, adjacent to a nature reserve, and have world class shelling, excellent birding, and an amazing view. You can play in the warm gulf waters, sunbathe, or just relax looking out the huge expanse of windows onto the beach and gulf. Many nature reserves are nearby, and the Everglades National Park is about 40 minutes away. If you want to visit the Florida Keys, from June through August, you can take a 3 hr express ferry to Key West from Marco.
