About the property

Best pricing for the best Marina Villa#905.Luxury on BAY! See Dolphins everyday!

Best pricing for THE best Marina Villa#905.THE most & best reviews. NO we do not offer Resort amenities; we offer alternatives and sufficient cost savings for better stay with many conveniences for free. YES, we offer MORE & BETTER with our special amenities, best location, so many freebies: all beach stuff, satellite, Netflix, WiFi & en suite computer, bottle of wine, free local and long distance calls, parking, etc. Location, Million $$ views-best appointed unit, highest quality linens, decor. Just steps to pool and beach/ 3 night minimum and mid-week to mid-week available.

Please note, the rental rate for our privately owned condo is considerably lower than most South Seas Island Resort rates for the same time period, however, our Marina Villa #905 all inclusive and excellent pricing does NOT include the separate resort amenities package, which you most likely may not be able to purchase directly from resort.

South Seas resort is a member and guest property. As such, they offer certain resort amenities only to South Seas property guests and their special amenity access is on a restricted basis.

Even without South Seas special amenities package, there is still much to do at the beach and pool and throughout Captiva island. Our Marina Villa #905 is better equipped & more beautifully furnished than most other similar resort condos and has many unique aspects and freebies within our unit. The unique location and view can't be beat within the Marina Villas and most Bay side units at the resort.

Privately owned MARINA VILLA 905 @ South Seas Island Resort on the water. Great condo in the best location with the gorgeous views. Steps to pool & Close to beach, with beach cart to carry stuff. More beautiful, yet much LESS EXPENSIVE than other resort condos at South Seas Resort. You pick the days. Call or email with your dates and how many people. Pay by credit card with secure Homeaway/VRBO payment process. Never wire money w/out first speaking to owner at 888-395-0852.

Please make sure to COMPARE our rates with South Seas prices!!! Then look at the features and amenities you will enjoy with this Marina Villa. We do NOT offer resort amenities packages.

Our Marina Villa 905 is located at the VERY QUIET north end of the resort. The condo is on the first floor at the corner of the building, one of the few units with both lanai and front porch. The unobstructed WATER VIEW from our lanai overlooks beautiful Pine Island Sound and the resort yacht harbor. You can watch the dolphins play every day!

The Marina Villa POOL is right at our doorstep, and it's only a 5 minute walk to the beach on the Gulf of Mexico, with its endless white SUGAR SAND beaches, balmy breezes, and TURQUOISE waters.

The sunsets are awesome, LAZY DAYS on the beach so easy, and life is beautiful...

The COZY and very picturesque Captiva Village is nearby, and browsing here is big fun - perfect for shopping and dining.

Serenity, comfort, and total RELAXATION is guaranteed at our wonderfully appointed Marina Villa. The completely remodeled 2 bedroom and 2 bath condominium has been designed and furnished with a Caribbean TROPICAL FEEL. Lanai is right on bay with dolphin, manatee and tropical birds and boats seen regularly.

Our extremely well appointed island getaway offers every CONVENIENCE with latest appliances, computer and desk, comfortable accommodations. The KITCHEN is equipped with coffee maker, double door refrigerator with ice maker dispenser, dishwasher, oven, flat top 4 burner stove, microwave and all the cooking and serving utensils you would need. If cooking on vacation is not your desire, try an island restaurant, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Our DINING AREA between kitchen and living room is ready to seat and serve six vacationers for meals - or for those late night games with the FAMILY. The living area, which overlooks the lanai with its spectacular full water view, has a love seat, new couch with queen pull out, coffee and end tables, and also a 42' flat screen TV with DVD player, CD stereo with remote, computer with wireless internet access, free local and long distance phone calls.

The MASTER BEDROOM is furnished with a king bed with high quality bedding, 36' flat screen TV with satellite, private bath with glassed in shower and plenty of closet space.

The GUEST ROOM has two twin beds, also with high quality bedding. Guests share the common bath. Bath linens, hair dryers, clock radios with alarm, telephone, iron and ironing board are all provided.

Our STARTER KIT contains: 1 dishwasher soap, 1 dish sponge and bottle of dish soap, 1 roll of paper towels, 5 trash bags, 1 roll on and 1 extra toilet paper, shampoo/conditioner, and hairdryers in each bathroom.

Our ISLAND GETAWAY is about a 45 minute drive from Fort Myers Southwest Regional International Airport (RSW), a 1 hour drive from Naples, and 2 hours from Tampa, Fort Lauderdale and Miami.

About Kirstin, Yolanda, or Randy

The Mullins family have been loving Captiva since the 1980's. Our kids have spent weeks here annually and love the beach and resort. There is no limit to the activities they have enjoyed and bring many of their friends year after year. The Shell museum and Ding Darling NWR are almost as popular as the beach and Gulf.

Kirstin, Yolanda, or Randy purchased this villa in 2005

Why Kirstin, Yolanda, or Randy chose Florida

The best location and view of all resort condos/Marina Villas, located in the prestigious north end. This unit has the best lanai and we love to sit on the lanai and watch the beautiful yachts coming and going, especially in the evening. We have never missed the awesome sunsets.

What makes this villa unique

HDTV's in every room, unique unobstructed views, free desktop computer and wireless internet with unlimited free local and long distance phone calls, the only satellite DISH TV service. Very well equipped.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great location, relaxing view and plenty of sun and beach time. The four of us all agree that this has been the most relaxing time of all!! Already planning our return next year! Plenty of Dolphin and manatee sightings, birds and wildlife to enjoy.

An upscale island getaway.

  • 5 of 5

This two bedroom unit is as restful and beautiful as it appears in the VRBO images. From the livingroom we have enjoyed seeing dolphins playing in the Gulf. This unit is at the far West end of Captiva Island. We have had a wonderful time on the beautiful beaches that are a 10 minute walk away. The pool is a delight.

Kitchen is well equipped. The place was very clean and in great shape. Thanks for a great time.

Gary Moseson, Rachel and Allison.

Everything was absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Let me begin by saying I own a week at The Plantation House (by the main pool). Although it is very nice, I did not miss the noise from the pool at 8:30am. Marina Villa # 905 is very very quiet and the view from the lanai cannot be beat! The condo had everything we needed.

Although we could've use more forks, spoons, etc. Definately not a "problem",

We'll return!

Wonderful Condo with a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights in mid-December and loved the quiet peaceful location and view from the screened porch. From there we could watch the dolphins, egrets and blue heron enjoying themselves. One egret was especially fun to watch as he seemed very effective in getting the fishermen to share their catch.

Being there in the off season meant that except for Friday and Saturday nights the parking lot was pretty empty and sounds from the other units were non-existent.

The pool is right outside the front of the unit and the walk to the beach and dock where the manatees are were minutes away.

The unit was clean, larger than we needed and very comfortable. The great wifi connection and access to Netflex made it feel like home. We plan to return in the future and would highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: This Marina Villa (MV) #905 is just a halfdozen steps from the pool. The exclusive MV pool, even in busier seasons, is seldom crowded as only the Marina Villa units have access to this heated pool at any time of year. The 905 Villa has 3 hidef TVs, free Wifi, free Dish satellite, free Netflix, free en suite computer usage, free local and long distance phone usage. In addition to the screened lanai, there is an exclusive front porch overlooking the pool. There is no easier check-in process: just go to the Villa and use the combo door to enter and start your vacation.

Owner's Response: This Marina Vila #905 is blessed with the best water view on the Pine Island Sound side of Captiva. Our guests enjoy the sun rises, steps to the pool and dolphin action mostly all day. The beach is about 5 mins. walk.

Owner's Response: We're truly happy when we find so many guests pleased with our Marina Village. Yes, great days and sunshine abound on Captiva And the view from a marina Villa is always great, there is the occasional day when you might want to watch some TV catch up on the news or just relax in the evening. The condo has a computer, internet connection, free local and long distance domestic phone usage, 3 high def televisions, DISH satellite TV with premium stations. All of this is free! And the owner always leaves a special gift package of some kind for the guests.

Awesome views and a VERY relaxed getaway! Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

What a great visit to Captiva Island. Marina Villa #905 was located perfectly as an end condo unit. Absolutely amazing view from the back Lanai and also from the entry porch. It was very private and the pool just steps from the front door was great! Really had a relaxing stay and nothing beats watching the wildlife from the back lanai. Dolphins would swim in the inlet to the harbor regularly. Beach items towels, chairs, umbrella and beach cart were all included and was a short walk around the corner to Captiva's Amazing beach. Would definitely recommend!

Owner's Response: We love it when guests appreciate our location, views and easy proximity to pool, boating and beach. Still, we take painstaking care to make the Villa's interior totally hopitable. Each room has hi-def TV with satellite, internet and we also have a computer with internet at a small desk/nook off the kitchen area. These guests also loved one of our favorite interior spaces, the waterfront lanai. This screened lanai is full of delicious daytime wildlife sights and sounds. Waterbirds wading, dolphins running and ospreys in flight keep every natyre liver transfixed. But, the evenings and nighttime are equally fascinating watching channel markers blinking, boats arriving and departing and foghorns softly sounding in the background. Relaxing on the lanai and watching yachts arriving make for a calming evening.
