About Kim Dennis

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

Why Kim Dennis chose Captiva

We love to vacation here it is very relaxing and has great sunsets.

• 15 magnificent miles of white sandy beaches and a treasure

chest of shells

• 7 days a week of trophy fishing

• 20+ miles of tropical bike paths

• 300 species of birds, 50 species of reptiles and amphibians,

What makes this condo unique

I provide all of the beach chairs, beach towels, beach toys, cooler I do not guarantee the umbrellas they have too much damage from guests I do replace them on a monthly basis but I may not be there prior to your arrival so I do not guarantee an umbrella. I also appoint my units with most anything you need in the kitchen and also grilling tools since there are 3 BBQ areas that are in the beach villas and gas is provided.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Kim,



We called today to cancel our reservation through South Seas and there was an additional $350 in hidden fees that weren't in her contract. You saved us about $850...thank you SO very much!!



Thank you!

Wonderful Stay in Captiva!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 7 adults and we were very pleased with the accommodations. The villa was spotless and all of the linens seemed brand new. The kitchen was well equipped with all of the basics. The villa is on the third floor which gives you an amazing view of the western sky. The sunsets were incredible from the balcony. There are plenty of activities nearby. I would highly recommend booking a catamaran sunset sailing trip at nearby Captiva Cruises. We saw manatees and dolphins galore.

We booked a last minute trip and even with the condensed time frame, the owner was very easy to work with and everything from the initial inquiry to the departure was smooth. My advice--if you are a group of adults traveling to the South Seas area on Captiva, book this beach villa through this owner. It will save you a significant amount of money compared to booking through the resort and you will make very few tradeoffs (you cannot use the South Seas trolley, you will need to pay to play tennis, and the more kid-friendly pools on the north end of the property are off limits). Additionally, you will not have to pay the resort activity fee (at the time of this review it was around $18 per person per night).

In short, I highly recommend this property for the combination of location and value.

Relaxing family getaway for the holidays

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 w/ 2 adult children stayed in the 2 bedrooms on the first floor of the unit and my brothers family of 4 w/ 2 teenagers stayed in the loft bedroom. The condo was very clean, nicely appointed and plenty comfortable for the 8 of us! Loved that there were enough places to sit on the patio for all of us and dining table was big enough for meals and card/ board games. We ate in the condo all but 2 dinners and with the stuff we brought from home (i.e.- spice mixture for the fish that was caught), cooking and grilling was not a problem. Easy walk to the beach and plenty of chairs and beach equipment provided- thanks Kim! The overall complex was nice and quiet- short walk to convenience market and less than a mile walk to main street on Captiva. We rented bikes from YOLO, which made most of Captiva assessable. AND, destination chargers for our car were both just across the parking lot from the condo and at REMAX of the Islands where we checked in/ out (very easy to check in and out w/ friendly folks). If you are looking to stay on Captive, this is a wonderful place!

A note about Captiva in general from a first time visitor- we liked that we had a quiet beach area and plenty of birds to watch. If you were planning on spending more time on Sanibel, be prepared to drive 30 minutes to get to the other end of the island. I was surprised that the bike/ walking paths on Captiva were on the road shoulders and were shared with drainage grates.

Nice spot in South Seas on Captiva Island

  • 5 of 5

A group of 8 adults stayed at this 3 bedroom, 3 bath condo for several days in November. Beds were comfortable, kitchen and bath supplies were plentiful, and the beach was a short walk away. One thing to note for families with kids or people with limited mobility is that there is a spiral staircase leading to the loft bedroom (which has 2 queen beds). I imagine younger children could get into trouble on those stairs. But for us adults, they were fine.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 3 days with six people. The accommodations were comfortable and had all of the amenities we needed. Was within walking distance of restaurants and had a beautiful view of the beach. We will definitely book this condo again.

Property was as discribed. Clean. Roomy. Loved the area

  • 4 of 5

I could've done without the landscapers working at 730am. The trash could used picked up more than once a day. They would empty it and then it was filled again by 9am The trash piled up at the end of the walk way and stinks in 100 degree heat. Also most villas have washers and dryers in them. This had coin operated laundry in room by parking lot. Overall I loved the stay. Beach view was amazing and lots of room

Owner's Response: The trash removal outside is the resorts issue to remove I have never had an issue and see it removed several times a day. I have never seen any lawn people that early but that is also the resorts personnel. Now ABSOLUTELY there are NO washers and dryers in any beach villas that are for guest use. ALL beach villas has access to units on the first floor. This is stated clearly in my listing so this should not have been a surprise but I cannot make anyone read the listings and many times people do not read the listing and then make complaints about things they should have read both in the house notes and in the listing itself .

This unit is located inside the gated resort community of South Seas Resort. The unit is in the beach villas which are the most desireable location just inside the resort so you are within walking distance of local shops, restaurants and bars. There are use of 3 condo heated pools, 3 BBQ areas (gas provided), Pay for play tennis, I have traveled all over the world and this beach is the best shelling beach I have ever seen. You can rent bikes and small motorized vehicles for use on the island. Biking is really wonderful here.
