***Friends of Bills receive discount*** Mix a one of a kind waterfront villa with a free boat excursion lead by a local of 25 years and you have the trip of your life! My unit is one of the most highly desired units on Captiva because of the following:
1) It Is located within the private and world class South Seas resort
2) Gorgeous direct panoramic waterfront view
3) State of the art home automation technology (Apple TV, Alexa, etc.), top of the line Trek bicycles, and a paddleboard included
4) Extremely reasonably priced
Paradise on the Bay! Cherish every sunrise over Pine Island Sound and every sunset over the Gulf of Mexico from this third floor villa commanding literally the best of the best locations amongst the Bayside Villas complex of over 100 units. Additionally, it is one of the only villas not enrolled in the South Seas rental program, meaning it is the only unit you can book on VrBO and avoid paying $700+ per night through the South Seas website. We also offer the use of bikes (Trek and Gamma), Paddleboard, discounted boating charters through family friend Captain Cooper, and fishing gear/beach gear. Our family also owns a property on North Captiva Island (right across Redfish Pass from South Seas) where you can hang out and Sunbath or picnic.
Exploring Ding Darling, Roosevelt Channel, Redfish Pass, Boca Grande, and North Captiva Island (on the South end just 1/2 a mile from the Villa- where you are free to tie up for a picnic or relaxing walk on a literally completely private beach/island). Even if just for two hours for a brief picnic at our North Captiva house, the experience will last decades. Make sure to bring the included Steiner Binoculars from the Villa along.
About the Villa: See pictures, it is by far one of the most gorgeous and sunfilled/actively waterfront (meaning you will not stand on the patio without seeing at east one Osprey, Pelican, Shark, or Ibis) of the South Seas properties due to it’s location. When you arrive you will understand how unique the location of my villa is compared to other properties in the same South Seas complex and other complexes within the South Seas Plantation community.
As the young tech entrepreneur, my villa is equipped with every piece of state of the art technology you can imagine, such as a Smartlock automation system, Apple TV, wifi internet, flatscreen HDTVs, and much more.
While the Villa is technically one bedroom, it can extremely comfortably sleep four and even six if needed (two in master, two in Murphy, and two on pull out couch). While we do not recommend staying with six individuals, it is possible. Please be sure that you are comfortable sleeping on a couch bed and murphy bed, however.
The villa features a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom that includes all of the necessities. The master bedroom features a 50’’ LCD television set with full Comcast premium cable. It also includes an iHome charging, alarm, and radio station.
The alternate sleeping quarters include a pull out Murphy bed with a Serta Beautyrest mattress and 1000 threadcount linen set, unlike most secondary sleeping quarters this one is not only luxurious but also has a direct view of the bay and bay sounds at night, which the master bedroom does not have. It also has a swiveling 40’’ HDTV that can be configured to be watched while falling asleep for guests on the Murphy.
Surrounding area: Abundance of wildlife sightings (dolphin, heron, osprey, manatee, seagull, cormorant, and shark) from this waterfront location provides a unique experience that other units simply cannot attest too. The Bayside Villa Community has it's own pool, jacuzzi, under building parking and storage unit (where paddle board, bikes, and luggage cart to help carry your luggage up the elevator). Please let me know if you will need any of these and I can make sure I am present at arrival to retrieve from storage.
Location within South Seas Plantation: Bayside Villas are located in the Southern village of South Seas Resort with close proximity to the beach (<1000 feet from front door with private access), shopping, dining, etc.
Why this Villa: South Seas charges over $700 a night for a regular Bayside Villa unit during season and $350 in off season. As ours is third floor, with panoramic views of the ocean and not marina, not to mention offers the ability to use great amenities free of cost, it would easily command $650+ per night. For a rate of $250 or less it is an absolute steal (search South Seas website for proof). Lastly, you enjoy totally FREE access to all of the South Village facilities within South Seas. This includes our on ground pool, jacuzzi, beach access, grill and barbecue area, and the famous Doc Ford’s Rum Bar and Grille (which is a South Seas facility). You also enjoy the personal concierge services of myself for all of your travel, experience, and leisure needs! I will be available 24/7 for you to ensure this is the best trip you have this decade!
*Note- In order to use our rental boat you must hold a valid captain’s license for boating. As of rentals made following 7/23/2017, the boat will no longer be offered for use to guests.
