About Theresia or Wolfgang Kesselring

We have been coming to Florida for many years and found we made a mistake when we sold our beach front condo on Estero Island. So when we were ready to search for another vacation spot we found ourselves to be very picky. We took our time and looked at many condos up and down the coast before making the decision to buy at South Seas. Marco Island has been voted to be one of the 3 top rated Island's in Fl. It is a keeper. From the beach to the town of Marco Island you will find every inch to be perfectly groomed and planted with a riot of tropical plants.

Theresia or Wolfgang Kesselring purchased this condo in 2012

Why Theresia or Wolfgang Kesselring chose Marco Island

Marco Island charmed us by its cleanliness, pristine tropical environment and friendly people. Both of us love nature and specially watching the spectacular birds right from our balcony, as well as watching the mullets jumping out of the water while we are enjoying our meals on the balcony. Further more, our condo has a huge pool which my wife particularly enjoys.

What makes this condo unique

Overlooking the nature preserve, seeing miles of unbuild beaches. Watching dolphins while walking on the beach. Great shelling, beautiful white sand and the best sunset from our balcony and from every bedroom. One can also see, the curvature of the earth from our balcony. We just love this town, it has been selected several times to be one of the most beautiful islands in Florida as well as the safest. The town does an incredible job to keep all roads and sidewalks looking like a park in a botanical garden! It is a joy to see all the beautiful flowers.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My friends and I want to thank you so much for a truly relaxing and most enjoyable time on Marco! Your condo is so very comfortable and beautiful. We spent time on the balcony each day, morning and evening and made use of the pool and ocean access as well. It was a great starting point for travels about the island, then Naples, Sanibel, Captiva and Boca Raton. We found dealing with the ladies at Century 21 most convenient, plus they are very nice. They help make the renting process very easy for the renter.

wonderful condo! great location!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very clean and updated. Has all of the items and services we needed. Loved the location! Beach was wonderful for relaxing and shelling. The view was fabulous! We enjoyed a gorgeous sunset each evening from the balcony or the beach! Plenty of local restaurants and shopping if that's your thing. The owners were great to work with, were very friendly and helpful. We will visit again!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

The only negatives we experienced are out of the owner’s control. A person chain smoked cigars on the balcony directly below us and workers were cutting and chipping trees next to the outdoor parking area beginning at 8am and ending at 5pm.

A comfortable, clean & well-equipped Tigertail Beach condo on Marco Island, FL.

  • 5 of 5

We found this condo clean, comfortable & well equipped for our needs. Located in a gated community, we enjoyed the on-site pool, easy beach access & privacy. We especially liked relaxing on the balcony & watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico. These accommodations would work well for a couple, 2 couples or a family of 4. Beach chairs, toys & a cart are available for beach use. Kitchen had everything you need. Owners stayed in touch & wanted to be sure we had everything we needed. A great experience.

The condo was wonderful with everything needed. Unfortunately Irma came and we had to leave early. Couldn't have asked for a better place. Everyone that we came in contact with treated us great. I would highly recommend to all

Great place to vacation! Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this condo. This is the second time we vacationed on Marco Island and stayed at this condo. We stayed for a week in mid-July with two adults and two children. I was surprised by the previous reviews stating that the air conditioner was not on and that there was a “smell” in the condo upon arrival. We had no such issues; the air conditioner was on, the unit was cool, and was in pristine condition. It is very clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. The views from the balcony are lovely. We decided to cook dinner ourselves a few nights, which was easy since there are several grocery stores nearby and the kitchen was clean and well-equipped. The unit is located close to the elevators and laundry room, and just a short walk from the pool, which the kids absolutely loved. The unit had plenty of beach towels, tote bags, and insulated cooler bags which we used to carry our things to and from the pool and beach. We took advantage of the handy drying rack on the balcony for our beach towels. At the condo were four chairs, a beach umbrella, and some buckets/sand toys for the kids. A beach cart would be helpful for the walk to the beach, but it is definitely manageable. The beach was beautiful, and we enjoyed our time there swimming and relaxing in the sand, and we found a ton of amazing sea shells when we went shelling during low tide. We found the location to be perfect, with a wide range of restaurants and shopping nearby, and activities like boat tours around Marco Island to see dolphins, tours of the Everglades, and the Naples Zoo kept us and the kids entertained. Overall we were extremely happy with our stay and look forward to coming again in the future!

Just OK

  • 3 of 5

Although this condo is beautifully decorated, there were a few cons to renting this unit. We had debated renting a condo vs private house and we wish we had opted for the house. As previously mentioned (we booked our vacation prior to the most recent review), the unit did have an odor. We purchased air fresheners during our stay which didn't help. The biggest disappointment was NO washer/dryer in the unit! It is on the same floor but is outside the unit and a pay for service, about $3.50 a load. The dryer is terrible. The beach is a very long haul, as previously mentioned in another review. It took us about 10 minutes to walk from 1st feet in the sand to water's edge. A beach cart would be nice since it is a long haul. Also, the beach chairs were broken, so we had 1 chair. There are no rental chairs available at this beach and several people were fishing NEXT to folks swimming! I realize the condo owners cannot prevent this but it was very disappointing. This isn't our first trip to the area. Marco Island is beautiful but we will likely not return to the area nor rent this unit again. We rely on reviews when we book vacations and I hope this helps other renters in their decisions.

Owner's Response: Dear Doug Lancaster We are sorry that our condo and the Marco Island beach did not measure up to your expectations. While many of your disappointments have to do with our beautiful island, you also apportion a good share to our condo to which I like to respond. Odor. This one bothers us the most and it relates to a wrong setting for the air conditioner. You could have called us or Century 21 (where you got the keys) and the problem would have been attended to immediately. The people who rented the condo after you reported that the odor is completely gone. Broken beach chairs. Sorry you only had one chair instead of three. We replaced the broken ones right after you left when we were notified of the problem. Again, your call would have brought you new chairs within 24 hours. No washer and dryer inside the condo, your "biggest disappointment". REALLY? From our front door you had to walk 20 feet to the left and you had two washers and two dryers. That they are "coin operated" is clearly stated in our condo description. Wide beach. Yes, nature has extended our beautiful beach and it takes a 8-9 minutes walk to reach the waters edge on the Gulf side. The pictures on our Home Away page clearly show the beach. Thank you also for your suggestion, we will buy a beach cart. Fishing next to swimming. Yes, the beach is only 6 (six) miles long. We are sorry you could not find a spot away from the people who were fishing. No Return. We feel bad that you do not want to return to Marco Island, and hope you find a better beach community for your next vacation. Our efforts will now concentrate on restoring our 5 star rating.

From our 10th floor balcony you have an unblemished view over Tiger Tail Beach and its nature preserve and you watch spectacular sunsets over the gulf. Direct access to our pristine gulf beach allows you a 5 mile nature walk NW, where all buildings disappear and where you can observe an incredible array of shore and wading birds and other wildlife along the clear gulf water and in Tiger Tail Lagoon. Walk South along the daily groomed beach and participate in Marco’s social life or visit one of the great restaurants at beach front. If you enjoy parasailing, jet skiing, sailing or other water sports you may rent along the beach. Many golf courses, restaurants and shopping opportunities are right on the island or within a 15 minute drive.

Enjoy a wilderness trip to the Everglades National Park, or an exciting expedition with the Dolphins Explorer. Perhaps you like to select a romantic sunset wine tasting cruise. The possibilities of a fun filled vacation are endless. We are also only 45 min. from Fort Myers international airport, two and a half hrs. from Miami or Fort Lauderdale airports. Downtown Naples with its exciting entertainment you can reach in 15 to 20 min. Come and enjoy our tropical paradise,year round.
