Thanks so much for the note cards...We had a great time in Marco Island. The apartment was great, and the beach and view were breath taking. Sun set was beautiful.

Spectacular View & Gorgeous Sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful, two bedroom condo has a spectacular view and incredible sunsets. I loved watching the birds and wildlife in the lagoon that sits right in the front the condo and the beach right behind it. During our stay just before Memorial Day weekend, there were very few people around and we practically had the entire beach to ourselves. The evenings on the balcony were quiet and peaceful, and good for the soul!

It is only a short walk (5 minutes) to the water. In prior reviews, people made it sound like it was a far walk, and it is not. Now, if you want to go to the end of Tiger Tail, it is a distance, and while we did wade through the lagoon cut-through, I personally prefer walking around than wading through mirky water. If you enjoy shelling, you will LOVE this beach. I found all types of shells, but was not lucky enough to find a sand dollar.

The condo is older, but the unit is clean and comfortable. The main living area is spacious and overlooks the Gulf. The kitchen has many amenities such as a dishwasher, microwave, range, and chopping blocks! There are utensils, glasses, pots and pans. The only thing we were missing that would have been nice to have was salt & pepper and oven mitts. That's it! Sugar and coffee filters were in the pantry and greatly appreciated. It's the little items like that that you forget to buy when you go grocery shopping.

The master bedroom has a king bed and overlooks the Gulf and its own private bath. Bedroom #2 has two twin beds and is right next to the second bathroom. Both bathrooms have a large shower. All bedrooms and main living area have a flat screen and cable TV. The facility has a pool and complete fitness center.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay. If you are looking for a quiet, comfortable and clean place to stay, this is it. The owners were very gracious and even left a package of Marco Island note cards for us. They are also very accessible by text, phone and email.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review! We're glad that everything met your expectations. The South Seas has two nice beaches to choose from. One on the lagoon is about 100 yards from the pool exit, the other beach on the Gulf is about 300 yards. Large families, especially those with older family members and/or infants and toddlers, may want to take that into consideration before visiting the South Seas. The lagoon is shallow enough to walk across, but does churn up at times and become murky. Unlike a deep ocean, visibility even in the shallower Gulf is limited. Shelling on Tiger Tail Beach is some of the best to be found anywhere in the Caribbean. Sand dollars are usually plentiful, especially after a windy night when the waves bring them onshore. Thank you for letting us know that the oven mitts had disappeared so that we could replace them. Please contact us any time while you are here. We are happy to replace missing or broken items, usually within an hour. Beach equipment, in particular, is replaced often. We check the unit, but don't open beach items to avoid getting sand in the condo. Thank you for staying with us! We hope to see you again!

Great view, beach was fantastic.

  • 4 of 5

The proximity to the beach and restaurants was really good. It is a little bit of a walk to the beach, but it was groomed well and easy access. Our only complaint was the cleaning could have been a little bit more thorough.

Clean

  • 3 of 5

The property is well maintained. The condo was comfortable it needs to be updated especially the shower. It was clean and neat pillows need to be replaced.

The week we were there the people next door were renovating the first two days they were using a jackhammer the noise was deafening after that it was hammering and drilling and knocking down God only knows what. We spoke to the condo owner nothing he could do we spoke to owner of condo and was told it would end soon. It never did. The washer and dryer is in the hall and you have to pay all in all next year we will find another place to stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Constructive observations are always appreciated. We're glad that you found the condo comfortable clean and neat. We live here on Marco Island. Please let us know while you are in the unit if there is anything that we can do for you. Pillows are medium firmness to accommodate most guest's. When a family has an elderly guest spending most of the week in bed, however, personal preferences can be more noticeable. Unfortunately, this happened to be a week that a neighboring condo was doing renovations during the day. Condos are individually owned, so there is no way to know when this is going to happen, and no way to switch guests to another room. Fortunately, this sort of inconvenience is rare. Baths have tiled tub showers. The South Seas does not permit washers and dryers in the units, but does provide a laundry room on each floor for personal laundry needs.

Relaxing

Very satisfied with condo. All the little extras that the Kimbles had available in the condo were icing on the cake. The pool area was very family friendly.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! We hope to see you again. Please note - Future guests use star ratings on this site to compare one South Seas condo to another South Seas condo, so we do everything within our power to earn a 5 star rating. When we've contact guests who left a 4 star review to ask what we could have done better, we have been told that "the condo was great, but the walk to the beach was long," which is something that is not within our control. The South Seas has two nice beaches to choose from. One on the lagoon is about 100 yards from the pool exit, the other beach on the Gulf is about 300 yards. Large families, especially those with older family members and/or infants and toddlers, may want to take that into consideration before visiting the South Seas. Web sites such as Trip Advisor are better for leaving comments and ratings about the South Seas area.

Marco Getaway

  • 4 of 5

This spacious condo is a great place for a Marco Island vacation. Rather than having the cramped resort feel that some condos have, this place was large...large enough to actually live there, not just vacation there. It is well-priced. The pool is big too but could use a few more umbrellas for shade. Liked that it had a deep end! Loved the "pool rules" and the fact it was family-oriented and senior adult-oriented. The beach was quite a hike, which really was the only downside of this condo. Very friendly people vacationing at this spot!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! We're glad that everything in the unit met or exceeded your expectations. There are two beaches at the South Seas. As seen in the photos, the beach on the lagoon is about 100 yards from the pool exit. The beach on the Gulf is about 300 yards. Please take this into consideration before visiting the South Seas complex, in order to be pleased with what you discover when you arrive. Those who like to explore tropical Tigertail Beach love the area, but the walk may not be suitable for older guests and families with infants and very small children. We provide a large cooler on wheels and a beach cart to carry many items. Thank you for staying with us! We hope to see you again!

A lovely condo!

  • 4 of 5

The property was nice and clean. Sleeping was a little cramped for 6 (3 adults and 3 children) as we used the air mattress and someone slept on the couch. The walk to the beach was also long, especially when carrying beach chairs, umbrellas and the cooler. The owner was very attentive and responded quickly to our request for another umbrella and a baking sheet for cookies. We enjoyed having the space and 2 full bathrooms for 6 girls as well as being able to cook breakfast and lunch. The beach was lovely and the location provided us an opportunity to explore new areas of Marco.

This two bedroom condo will accommodate a large family, but works best if children can use the twin beds and elevated inflatable queen which fits between the twin beds in the guest bedroom. Adult size teens may find this a little cramped.
