About the property

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

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.

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.

About Carol Shapiro

My husband and I enjoy having a place to come to and relax and enjoy the wildlife, plus we enjoy sharing it with others. I especially love looking for daily treasures that appear on the beach. In the picture, my husband is clearly very happy with the two large shells we found that day!

Carol Shapiro purchased this condo in 2015

Why Carol Shapiro chose Marco Island

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 it was still enjoyable 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 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.

Unforgettable Condo - Unforgettable Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a much needed retreat in this amazing condo and it was absolutely unforgettable! The owner really made it so easy for a family to come in and forget about their worries and to simply "be" in such an awesome space. The condo was immaculate and the views from the balconies were breathtaking and served as a wonderful space for reflection and of course tons of pictures. The thoughtfulness and attention to detail inside the condo was top-notch. The master suite with mouth-dropping bathroom is its own private retreat! Beach equipment & toys, towels, dishes, soaps, and even makeup remover was made available for our use. This condo is perfect for anyone needing to exhale. We were a little sad to leave but very grateful to spend one of our most memorable family retreats in this condo.

Marco Island South Sea's Tower 3 #1711

  • 5 of 5

Everything about renting this condo in Marco was first class, from the moment we considered a vacation here to check out and resulted in a fantastic experience. The condo views are spectacular and the location is very convenient. We walked to NeNe's or Doreen's every morning for breakfast after walking the length of the beach. The layout of the condo and furnishings are excellent. The owner addressed every detail and was genuinely concerned that we have a great vacation. We are already planning a return trip.

Beautifully decorated with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 (all grown children) had a wonderful time at this condo. The realtor and owner were always available if we had any questions. Everything was completely updated and very clean. There was plenty of kitchenware for cooking and entertaining. The beach equipment was very nice to have as well. I highly reccommend this unit.

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.
