I have been coming to South Seas since my 18th Brithday. I am not going to mention how long ago that was but suffice to say that was a long time ago and I still love it!!!!
We have 9 total units in South Seas that we rent. We absolutely love this beach. The shelling is amazing. There is usually a very nice breeze and we love to sit on the screened in patio and watch the sun set. There is nothing like sitting and watching the sun set.
Kim Dennis purchased this condo in 2013
We love to vacation here it is very relaxing and has great sunsets.

We have an owner locker, with 6 beach chairs, one umbrella, cooler, and sand toys. Beach towels are also provided in the unit as part of the fees. This is a GREAT benefit to have access to this locker area since any other properties I have seen for rent other than ours do not have this option. If you rent with others you will have to get or bring your own beach chairs, unbrella, and cooler. This can be expensive and I provide it for free with your rental. You also have access to this on the first floor so that you are not dragging this stuff into the unit and getting sand everywhere. Renters comment on this great benefit all the time for our other units on VRBO.
The property itself was great, exactly as advertised and photos are just what you get. Pool is just below balcony. Pool was heated to a comfy 82. Beds were comfortable and unit was spotless when we checked in. Checkin took all of 10 min. Beach view was spectacular as were the sunsets over the gulf. We walked to several restaurants and Starbucks, but you need a car to explore. only one negative comment and we were warned in advace on Kims posting on VRBO. South Seas Resort is great for guest but has little use for renters. You can not ride tram ( no great loss), you can not spend money in their restaurants, you can not play golf on the executive course ( again no great loss), you can not use their pools or hot tubs, and you can not even buy ice cream at Scoops. This is not Kim's ( and she points this out on her listing) fault but appears short sighted on South Seas part. Again you won't find a better located or cleaner condo on Captiva. Thanks for a great two weeks!
We have just returned from 4 nights at this lovely condo unit. It is furnished just like a home with quality furnishings and a very full kitchen. The beds and pillows were extra comfy. The unit is super convenient to the beach and pool. We love to visit South Seas Island Resort and did not miss the use of the beach chairs and umbrellas since Kim provides great beach chairs and umbrellas. We will return! Thanks for a lovely break from Houston.... we love the sunsets on Captiva!
We rented this property from Kim for our vacation to Captiva. The unit is impeccable and is exactly as it appears in the photos. Kim has stocked it to have everything you would ever need. The kitchen is fully appointed, the unit has extra towels, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, sand toys, games, movies etc. Everything is very up to date and in great condition and the unit was spotless when we arrived. The view from the patio is spectacular and we would definitely rent the two story unit again just for the view of the beach and the gorgeous sunsets. Kim was very easy to work with and quick to respond to us during the entire process. Kim's attention to detail is apparent throughout her beach villa. There are many fantastic things to do while on Captiva from restaurants to deep sea fishing to shelling, etc. It is a great destination for all ages and renting from Kim made it even more enjoyable for our entire family.
My family vacationed at this lovely oceanfront beach villa for five days. We were impressed with many of the amenities: extremely comfortable beds (two kings and a queen); extra towels; plenty of provided tissue, paper towels and trash bags; beach chairs; soap and shampoo dispensed right in the shower; hair dryer; a portable cooler for the beach; clean utensils, plates and cookware. This owner thinks of everything, right down to playing cards and a lighter for the provided candles inside the unit and on the screened porch. The beds were so comfortable that we even investigated the brand! The linens were clean, good quality, and the comforters nice and thick. We have rented many properties in our years as travelers, and we rarely find this level of provisions. We are now spoiled! There were nice televisions in each bedroom and in the living area, but we had great weather and spent all of our waking hours almost outside. Who wants to watch TV when you can have gorgeous sunsets to view on Captiva?! The third floor location is worth the view, and an elevator is handy if one doesn't wish to climb stairs. Parking is right there, although we rarely used our car. One can walk to the island market and nearby restaurants. We did not use the pool (opting for the crystal clear Gulf water), but it is adjacent to this unit. The island market has suitable provisions, but we opted to do one larger grocery store visit to Baileys on Sanibel. We also rented a boat at the nearby Jensen's marina for a day on the water and lunch at Cabbage Key. We also brought our bikes and really enjoyed pedaling in an area that has an auto speed limit of 19 mph and a few inflatable beach floats that were fun to use in the Gulf water. Bikes, floats, paddle boards and more are all available for rent through island vendors. When we arrived at our unit, the air conditioning was set for comfort and the lights turned on in a welcoming gesture. The interior was exceptionally clean. I have read some of the reviews of the villas available to rent through the resort, and some visitors have complained about poor quality linens, bad housekeeping and more. We opted to rent directly from an owner, and we could tell that there was pride in this unit. My family members are all busy, and we only have limited time for vacation. We left happy that all of our needs had been nicely met with a responsive owner. I would recommend this vacation to anyone who is looking for fun and relaxation.
Beautiful beach front unit with all the bells and whistles one can think of. It exceeded our expectations, always a great thing. Captiva is a very special destination.
This is one the best vacations our family have had. The room is as it was describes. The owner is very prompt to reply. As well as the property management. The home was extremely well stocked with everything you might want on a vacation and the things (beach chairs/ umbrellas – etc, are Tommy Bahamas … good quality).
Captiva is a perfect family vacation – stuff to do for everyone in the family with a variety of different interests. It kept my 4 & 6 year old occupied playing while I sat on the beach reading a book and my husband fished. Also, plenty of stuff to do together – we rented boats, swam, went shelling used our boogie boards… So many Dolphins, everywhere. It was PERFECT!!!!
The only downfall, at all, was since you are getting it at a reduced rate and not going through the resort you don’t get resort amenities. Generally, not a big deal (at all). The only thing that would have been nice is if you are a resort guest they put chairs & umbrellas up for you. We had to carry it. (yeah -- I gave myself a boo hoo for even thinking that) Booking through the resort is not worth the extra cost … it was the only “would have been nice” I could find.
I highly recommend this location – in fact, I already have to several friends.
This unit is on the beach in the beach villas on the top two floors with amazing views of the water and beach inside the South Seas Resort. Watch dolphins from the screened in balcony
