About Barbara Stevelman

Our family has owned this villa for many years. We keep our boat, Zest for Life, docked at the sea wall. A great day for us is taking our little boat out on the bay to one of the out islands for lunch, then hanging out by the pool or sitting on the terrace watching the dolphins or the boats, napping and then having dinner at one of the funky restaurants on Captiva. Life is good on Captiva., and fabulous at South Seas resort. The owners will be happy to share all their "inside" information gained from living 35 years on the island.

Barbara Stevelman purchased this condo in 1980

Guestbook comments from the owner

I was so pleased when I arriived at this villa,. First of all, it was immaculate, and as described. Then there was a beautiful, safe, sccreened veranda deck that the kids played board games on, while WE napped in the afternoon on a luxurious king sized bed. And after that we had cocktails on the same veranda spotting dolphins while the kids played with their iPads, and watched TV.

Great views, large space and easy access to South Seas facilities.

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Great views, dolphin sightings from the balcony, yachts coming and going in the harbor. Easy walk to everything at the North End of South Seas. Yet, much quieter than the Gulf side. My husband and I spent a week and the condo is larger than those at the South end and clean with nice kitchen. It overlooks the harbor and Pine Island Sound with great sights all day. An easy walk to the beautiful Gulf beach which has a restroom and shower and beach chairs/towels plus a bar, so no need to run back and forth all sandy to the condo. While you have easy access to all of the South Seas facilities and their large pool in easy walking distance, there is also a nice pool just in front of the condo reserved for the Marina Villas on so a nice quiet, uncrowded place to relax in the afternoon or evening. Will definitely go back.

Appropriate deposit required. Will hold without deposit for 3 days only.

Personal travel guidance available. Wildlife sanctuary. Shell Museum , Historical Village and arts center on Sanibel.

March is THE PRIME month and these 3 weeks are THE MOST DESIREABLE,. The resort is completely booked every year at this time. The Marina VIllas are uniquely positioned during this time of year, Why is this? No through traffic comes through our enclave. No buses, no trolleys. The gorgeous lagoon pools are crowded and you would be able to use the lagoon pools and the prvate pool on our property. Crowds, especially chldren, go to the lagoon pools, and allow Marina VIlla guests to lounge and swim in relative tranquility, or enjoy the lagoon pools as they wish. And to walk to the lovely beach access is only a 5 minute walk. The best of both worlds...Many guests have remarked about thiis.
