About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

........................Caxambas South Beach Terrace is a mid-rise condo building ready for occupancy in 2004. Located on the prestigious, 'Ritzy' South End of Marco Island on South Collier Boulevard. The Condo building is quiet and intimate-only 15 units.

This condo is large and spacious. The dramatic 10 feet ceilings and beautiful Gulf views are outstanding. The unit is furnished with luxurious pieces and finishes. This is a condo for the discriminating. A full sized pool with paved pool deck is on the premises. Walk to beach is about 5 minutes.

Marco Island has long been known to the Calusa Indians--Legand holds that the Calusa Indians granted a blessing to Marco Island to keep it a safe haven. The 'blessing of the Calusa' has kept Marco safe from harm in its recorded history. Hurricane Wilma October 24 2005 tested this legend.

This is the place you want to come home to. The colors are warm and inviting. Rich bronzes and hues of earth tones wrap you in comfort. I spent months working to furnish this condo for elegance and comfort. The bedroom layout offers privacy for more than one couple. The kids love the twin bedroom with its TV and DVD player.

This Non-Smoking condo is situated on the third floor. Beautiful Gulf views and sunsets. Our favorite thing to do is sit at sunset gazing out at the gulf. The view is lovely. Walk to beach is about 5 minutes. Almost 2300 square feet of luxury. Dramatic ten foot ceilings with elegant furnishings. Professionally decorated by Linda Hess. Ceiling fans in every room.

The Kitchen is elegantly appointed in granite and tumbled marble, fully-equipped, and has a walk-in pantry. Living room with 46-inch flat screen HDTV with DVD/VCR player. Original oil paintings. Gulf views. The dining room seats six in elegance - perfect for entertaining - fully-equipped buffet.

MASTER SUITE: This is pure luxury. Prop up in bed with a good book and gaze at the gulf. King size bed. Beautiful faux-painting, lush, and private.Walk-in closets. Gulf views. Master bath with shower his and her sinks, and soaking tub. QUEEN BEDROOM: safari theme and adjoining full tub bath and shower--This room feels like a sanctuary. Quiet and peaceful. The third bedroom, TWIN BEDROOM has two twin beds and adjoining full tub/bath shower. Bedroom has TV/DVD player in armoire. Powder room - hand-glazed, faux painting by Robert Wise. This powder room with its Cinderella mirror feels enchanting.


Covered lanai-spacious gulf views seats six and chaise lounge. Outdoor TV-- I love to watch the news outside in the morning with coffee. This condo has its own bright and spacious laundry room--no more hauling wet bathing suits and dirty clothes back home.

This in one you will come back to again. Everything is here that you need--All the room, the sunshine and the water.

Come to our island. Come to Marco Island.

South marco island

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. Thank you for sharing your condo with us. We had our 2 adult sons and their wives with us. Having private baths was very comfortable. We want kayaking out of the fish house on the isle of Capri. Very nice. No guide needed. Fish house was good food as well. Dinner at Verdi's was lovely. Excellent service and food. Beach access was about half a mile walk. Lovely beach. Saw dolphins from the shore. Condo had plenty of towels for beach and showers. Some neighbors complained of noise from us moving chairs while we are dinner. It was 6pm. We also heard distant noise, but didn't bother us. They need to turn on music and relax. Pool was too cold to swim. Beach was fine. Internet connection very slow. Older tv so couldn't use computer to watch tv or own movies.

Excellent Marco Island Condo

  • 5 of 5

We rented the unit over the Christmas holiday and our family had a wonderful time. The reviews set forth that uniformly give this condo a 5/5 are a true reflection of all of its positive qualities. The layout was great. The amenities are well done. Access to a beautiful beach was great. We felt lucky to have found this location and loved Marco Island. We would love to come back!

Great place on Marco

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo during the month of March - it was exactly as pictured. Beautiful decorating, quality linens, well-stocked kitchen, and a great location for beach lovers. Both Kathleen and the on-site management she provides were quick to respond and most gracious in all of our dealings. Other tenants, both long and short-term, were friendly and welcoming, although the building was blissfully quiet. We would heatily recommend this rental to anyone who is seeking rest and relaxation!

We have ben coming to Mar...

  • 5 of 5

We have ben coming to Marco Island for 7 years and love the island! It is our little piece of paradise in January to escape winter in the Midwest. This was our first year renting Kathleen's condo and it exceeded our expectations.

We loved the quiet setting with beautiful views of the ocean. The condo is exceptional and the owners were wonderful to work with. We plan to make this our destination each January.

We have always stayed beach-front and were concerned at stepping away a bit from the ocean. The trade-off in having so much space and the luxury of this condo was well worth the 7 minute walk to the beach. We found that we cooked in quite a few nights taking advantage of the fresh seafood and availability of the Farmer's Market each Wednesday. Dinner on the lanai was very relaxing and a nice way to end the day.

This condo is everything and more that is advertised - you will not be disappointed!

This is a wonderful and elegant beach community. The beach on Marco island is a beautiful long crescent beach, one of only a few crescent beaches on the east coast. Long attractive to beachcombers and children alike, it is a place to relax and enjoy the water.
