Beautiful Marco Island Gulf beachfront corner condo with WIFI inside the apartment at the South Seas Club with wrap around balcony, southwest exposure, and direct access to the beach, next to the Tigertail state park. It has one of the most panoramic views at the entire Marco Island beach. From a 300 square foot long wrap around balcony on the 10th floor you overlook the Gulf of Mexico, the 5 mile white sandy crescent beach from tip to tip, the state nature preserves, a large heated pool, and the lush Marco Island skyline just beyond Clam Bay. Step outside from the living room or either bedroom to the lanai and absorb the beauty this corner of paradise has to offer. By day, you will see nature all around, diving pelicans, jumping fish, and sometimes playing dolphins. Late afternoon you will witness magnificent sunsets and feel a pleasant breeze coming off the warm gulf waters; later in the dark you see even from the inside a beautiful lit condo skyline toward the south. - Inside the condo you may relax in roomy, updated and comfortable accommodations. The living room got bran new Hurricane windows, rich Brazilian Cherry hardwood floor, two new leather sofas with recliners, and also a new 46' LED widescreen TV. You may want to dine at one of the many fabulous restaurants or just stay home and sit at the dining room table for dinner while gazing outside at the water and bypassing boats, and also watch from inside beautiful sunsets. Floor to ceiling sliding doors are leading from each room to the 50 by 6 foot tiled and furnished lanai. This corner unit is a truly relaxing retreat. (All surrounding pictures are views from the lanai). - Sorry, the association does not allow smoking and any pets inside the apartments and condo facilities. - You may stay less then 7 nights for the minimum cost of the weekly rate. - You may also inquire about our other Gulf beach front unit, listing #980424, in the same building for a lower rate!

Above and beyond
The photos and description do not do this destination justice. The condo itself looks similar to the photos, but the photos make the condo seem smaller than it actually is. I was surprised by the actual size of the unit when we arrived. The balcony was the same way, it was much larger than the pictures, making it very easy to enjoy the views while eating on the balcony.
The condo is located in a large building with a great pool. The building is placed close to the center of town, but far enough away to make it seem like a real vacation destination. As we rented a condo, we went to some of the local stores to grab groceries. Some of the stores closer to the unit itself were a bit pricey, but driving a bit further out of town got stores with normal prices.
The host of this condo is very easy to work with and very easy to get ahold prior to and during the stay. She is happy to help with anything she is able to.
We had a great week in Johanna's condo. It was very clean well appointed with all the comforts of home. Johanna is extremely easy to work with. She responds quickly to inquiries and provides detailed instructions on use of the property.
It was incredibly nice to sit on the expansive wrap around balcony and view stunning sunrises and sunsets with morning coffee and the drink of your choice in the evening.
The beach was also incredible. A nice walk to a crescent beach that was simply beautiful. Shelling was a lot of fun early in the morning. A long sand bar made it very safe to wade out quite a distance.
This was one of the best, if not the best VRBO experience we have had. The property was well managed, well-maintained, secure and beautifully landscaped. As I said, it was a great week.
Best view on the island!
Four Adventure Bridge ladies had a great time at the condo. It is the best place to view the ocean sunsets plus the bird sanctuary. We saw many ibis, pelicans, herons etc during our stay. The dining room windows are new and specially tinted. Johanna was available via internet when I had questions. Restaurants we loved: Red Rooster, Mango's Dockside Bistro, Cafe' de Marco north on Bald Eagle Drive, The Liitle Bar in Goodland and the Sunset Grille on the south end of Marco Is. We also drove to Everglades City for lunch and saw 12 alligators in the canal as we were driving! One update we would like: better towels available. . . they are getting worn. We used the blender to make morning smoothies each day. It was indeed a fantastic stay for us on Marco Island. Loved the access to the balcony from each bedroom and the living area, plus the four recliners in the couches! Glad we found this condo on VRBO.
We had the most beautiful view! Had a great vacation and would definitely go back!
Very nice apartment. Well appointed. Spectacular Gulf views from everywhere.
Weather cooler than we were hoping for. Not Johanna's fault though. Marco Island is quite charming with many good restaurants. Beach approach is hard pack for easy walking , do need some sort of foot covering. Easy walk to Tigertail Beach though must wade across narrow lagoon to access the length of the beach. All in all good times 😊
Thank you very much for your review.
But I have to make a correction to your following statement: "... though must wade across narrow lagoon to access the length of the beach...".
Some vacationers like and choose to wade across the lagoon to access the beaches.
The normal way to get from the condo complex to the water waves at the Gulf is walking across the beach and a little around the lagoon without getting any wet feet. It takes about eight minutes from the condo building to reach the water waves at the Gulf beach.
The Tigertail beach is before the lagoon close to the building; no need to cross the lagoon. It can be seen from the photos very clearly.
Lovely condo to stay in.
We have stayed many times in this condo. The owner is accommodating and quick to answer all questions. The balcony view is stunning. Close to restaurants, shopping and grocery stores. Kitchen is well equipped. Very clean unit. We are quite pleased.
