Overview

About the property

- 2 bedrooms (King and Twin beds)---2 bathrooms-- sleeps 4

There are many condos to choose from for your vacation needs. How do you choose? First you have to decide what amenities are important to you because everyone has a different idea of luxury. If you are looking for a condo that has everything you need (so you don't have to bring a lot with you), that offers a secure place to vacation, that is kept up to date and clean, and that has a great view, then you have come to the right place. With 55 acres in our gated community you have many amenities that other places can't offer. We have nine tennis courts in their own beautiful location by the bay (instead of on a garage rooftop) that offer many opportunities for organized play. We also have a dedicated room for socials where you can join others in card games or social gatherings, beautifully landscaped grounds, and the section of beach most popular for shelling, walking, and which is a natural habitat for the local wildlife.

About Lorraine Innes

We are Bill and Lorraine. We live in NH and have been coming to Marco Island for the past 25 years. We have owned this condo for 20 years and we have another condo at South Seas which we have owned for 25 years. We love Marco and wish we could get there more often, especially in the winter.

Our grandkids, who are now teens, do not like us being gone for long. It is nice to have such a close relationship with them but it does hinder our trips to Marco.

We enjoy being able to rent to others so they can experience the Marco Island Paradise. We are very conscientious about renting and feel a great responsibility to have everything in good order for our guests. I have made many friends through renting.

Lorraine Innes purchased this condo in 1997

Why Lorraine Innes chose Florida South Gulf Coast

When looking for our first condo we visited many condos on the beach. We couldn't find anything that compared with South Seas. From the amenities to the shade offered around the pool to the beautiful 55 acres, we were hooked. We purchased in Tower III and as the years passed our infatuation with Marco only grew. When in the market for a second condo we again looked at many condos and again came back to South Seas as it was just the most unique place on the beach. So be bought a second condo in Tower IV and have never regretted either purchase.

From the amenities in South Seas to the many activities both on the water and on land in and around Marco there is always something to do.

We love the friendship at South Seas. It is nice to sit under the chickee huts and meet people from all over the world. It makes for a very pleasant afternoon chatting with people who we did not know before.

It is just a paradise and we love it.

What makes this condo unique

We fell in love with the long balcony that offers a gorgeous view of the beach and the Gulf. It is so relaxing to sit and enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner while enjoying the view and breeze. Although we don't use the tennis courts, as years went by the South Seas Club has added Pickle Ball courts which will soon number 8. Also there is Shuffle Board and Bocce Ball. There is a great exercise room and if I wasn't so lazy I would use it. Also the Social Room does offer organized socials and card games during the on season.

There is just so much to love about this complex.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Lorraine,



Just wanted to let you know that we had a great time in Marco, and your condo is just perfect, everything one could wish for.



We had 2” of rain up here and 50-60 Deg temps. While we were down there it was in the mid nineties with no rain.



We went for walks early, and stayed by the pool in the shade when it got too hot, and Anne even managed to pick some sand dollars during our walks.



Also went down Hwy. 41 and took an Everglade air boat ride that was cool, gator’s and all.



Anyway thanks again too bad we didn’t meet up with you guys, maybe next time, did you leave Marco to go home that week, or did you have to stay around to finish up your remodeling ?



Regards Barry& Anne.

Great place to stay, Beautiful View.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great.

Beautiful pool. Clean and enough chairs and tables for everyone. Very strict on young children jumping, yelling or bringing small toys into the pool, and of course throwing any sort of balls.

The condo was convenient, comfortable, very clean.

The availability of items such as the mini vacuum was good. It worked great picking up and sand from the ceramic or debris on the carpets so you didn’t track it everywhere especially in bed.

Regardng the bed, I rarely am able to sleep in bed on vacation because the beds are beat. I’m glad to say that I did have a good night’s rest “in bed” during my stay.

Also, we were very appreciative of the cart and beach chairs. I did not realize the distance to the beach. But from my perspective, it was a little exercise….you just had to be prepared with everything before going to the beach, because we weren’t coming back because you forgot something.

Having the Cable TV & Wifi was great to have to wind down the day after a long day at the pool or beach.

Owner's Response: Hi Greg, We are very happy that you were pleased with our condo for your vacation needs. With regards to the pool, the rules are changing and right now there is a committee to look at them. Children have been allowed to bring small toys in the pool and I am not sure why it was not allowed when you were there. They do not allow balls because there has been rough play with footballs in the pool and standers by and children get hurt when someone hurtles a football and the catch is missed by the intended recipient. The rules are being reviewed to allow normal play but not allow play in the pool that would hurt others. Diving is not allowed for safety reason, which is common in most condo associations. Thanks for your comments as it is good to be able to explain the need for some of the rules.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This is our seventh year staying in this beautiful unit. Steps away from the pool & beach with gorgeous views. The unit is always immaculate and stocked with all of the comforts of home. Beach toys and games for the kids, family friendly movies, beach towels and a fully equipped kitchen. We love staying here and plan to continue our annual visits!

Well prepared, clean unit with fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this condo on Marco Island. We couldn't ask for a nicer, cleaner or better prepared unit. Everything needed for a stay at the beach was provided. Fantastic views from each room and the balcony.The owner also left a wealth of information on restaurants and places to go on Marco. Parking was indoors and security visible at the complex. We only wish that we could have stayed longer. We'd love to arrange another stay.

Yet another wonderful stay on Marco Island

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently stayed at unit 707, Tower 4, at the South Seas Club. As always, the unit was immaculately clean and furnished with everything we needed to make our stay special. This was the first time we stayed for two full weeks and it wasn't near long enough. We have stayed at other units at the South Seas and for us, this is by far the best we have ever rented. We couldn't wait for next Spring, so we've actually booked it again for August of this year to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary!

Our best stay in Marco Island yet!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to rent on Marco Island, this is the condo for you. My family just returned from a couple of weeks in Lorraine's unit in South Seas on Tigertail Beach. It was our best vacation in Marco so far.

We love Tigertail - it's right out the door with remarkable shelling and the opportunity to be off the beaten path in no time if you want some quiet and solitude in nature. There are volumes of wildlife around, including tons of birds, because of the natural areas to the North of the building.

This unit faces the beach with beautiful sunsets, and a view of the pool (which we liked as our family often divided up - but we could find each other easily). The deck is in the sun and has nice furniture in great condition - and plenty for about 6-8 people.

South Seas keeps the pool about 83-86, which makes it an option even on a cloudy or breezy day. We used it every day of our vacation!

Lorraine's unit is well maintained, and you can tell they care about their home away from home. We felt very comfortable. The furnishings and fixtures felt more like a vacation home and less like a beach cottage (i.e. more like something you want to sit on than something that could be covered in sand). At the same time, we have a 3 and 5 year old and nothing was too fragile or frightening for us (which is sometimes a concern, as you might imagine!)

The unit is the most well-stocked we've ever experienced as well. Everything from beach equipment (chairs, cart, umbrellas, sand shoes, toys, fishing and shelling gear) to household basics (loads of dishes, great pots and pans, bedding (including the possibility of sleeping another 2 people), even kid-sized cups and utensils) to rainy-day supplies (puzzles for all ages, books, movies, and games).

Lorraine (the owner) is outstanding to work with. She moved around some personal plans to make this work for us; was in contact with us before, during and after our stay; and when a couple of things went awry in the unit (little details like a cracked handle on the sliding door), she gave us easy resources to remedy them.

I would rent any unit from Lorraine again in a heartbeat. And if you have a chance to stay here, you won't be sorry!

Map

Nearest Beach
Marco Island Beach
Car: recommended

Marco Island is located in the area of the southwest Gulf known as the Paradise Coast. It is just north of the Everglades and just south of Naples. Because of Marco's location, it offers not only many opportunities for activities locally, but access to all the amenities that Naples and the Everglades have to offer. The Marco area is loaded with opportunities for water sports, night life, zoos, museums, and water parks. It's also a rich source of live entertainment including comedy clubs, amateur and professional theater, and an assortment of night clubs and music. The natural habitat right outside your window is a wonder to behold. Take guided nature walks on the beach and learn about the shells, birds, turtles and other creatures that live there. You may prefer to just kick back and relax. What better place to do it from than one of our condos in Marco Island.

Other Activities: Added activities include canoeing, kayaking, bird watching, shopping, live theater and movie theater and new to South Seas in 2012 are two Bocce Ball Courts and one Shuffleboard court. There are now 9 Har-Tru Tennis courts.
