My mother and father-in-law owned this condo before us and I hope my daughter one day takes it over. It is the place I go in my mind when I need to get away and cannot manage a trip. It is the picture on my cell phone and my computer screen. I lead a crazy hectic life and a visit to the condo is what it takes to make it all worth while.
Louise purchased this Condo in 1995
Why Louise chose Marco Island
Noone has ever told me they didn't enjoy their time here.
What makes this Condo unique
Start the morning on the balcony with coffee and a book. Call Chuck for an afternoon boat trip, See the sunset facing Tiger Tail beach. Spend your day enjoying the many activities the island has to offer, exploring neighboring attractions, boating, sitting at the pool or never leaving the deck. All are excellent vacation choices.

Great location. We enjoyed the sunsets from the balcony.
North end of Marco Island
South Seas is a gated community located on at the North end of the island. The beach is very wide giving families plenty of room to spread out, make sand sculptures, and not feel crowded. Shelling along the shore of Tiger Tail in the morning will yield perfect sand dollars. You can spend 30 minutes to many hours there. The South end of the island has softer sand, the beach is narrower, and shells are fewer.
For a bit of an unusual dining experience try Lee Be's Fish. It's a "fish shack" serving fish caught just hours earlier- best fish I've had in a very long time. We tried the fish taco (delicious) and island style grouper w/ black beans and rice. Note: It is CASH only. There are plenty of restaurants near South Seas, some within walking distance -Joey's (highly recommend - be sure to try the garlic knots!), Doreen's and Nene's for good lattes and fantastic breakfasts. CJ's, in Esplanade Shops, is a short drive, had a great sunset view, food was fresh, and service was pleasant. We drove to Goodland (30 minutes or so) to have dinner at the Little Bar Restaurant. It's a funky place in funky town. Food was just average. With so many other great choices, we probably won't go again. Take-out from Su's Garden is good choice after a full day when you don't want to out to dinner.
We took Hemingway Water Shuttle to Keewaydin Island for a day trip. It's a family owned business, and it shows. Steve and Matt made sure everyone was comfortable and made us feel welcome. We saw dolphins and a manatee on our way out. Bring plenty of sunscreen and re-apply often. One side of the island is the "party side" w/ boats pulling in, people listening to music, and even food boats. The other side of the island (a 5 minute walk) is on the gulf w/ a wide white sand beach. We found a lot of big sand dollars. We'll definitely do this again on our next visit.
We enjoyed Marco Island and will return for future vacations. Louise's condo was OK. It does need some updating. We will probably stay in a different location next time to try out a different "feel."
My family and I couldn't have asked for a better vacation.
Booking the vacation was really easy. I picked Southseas because someone recently recommended it to me. I picked this particular condo because there were lots of positive reviews and we couldn't have been happier. We received instructions in the mail that couldn't have made it any easier. There was also suggestions on places to visit, where to eat and lots of helpful tips. Even though we have been to Marco Island before the recommendations and advice was very helpful. This was our 5th visit to Marco Island and I think our best. My family and I enjoyed walks every day on the beach, collecting lots of shells (including 5 sand dollars), the beautiful sunsets every night from the fabulous deck, the walks along the marina (even though we didn't see any dolphins or manatees, that others have seen). Once again this condo provided everything and I highly recommend it. We will definitely be returning to stay at this beautiful condo.

My family and I couldn't have asked for a better vacation
Booking the vacation was really easy. I picked Southseas because someone recently recommended it to me. I picked this particular condo because there were lots of positive reviews and we couldn't have been happier. We received the keys and instructions in the mail that couldn't have made it any easier. We were arriving late at night and my GPS took me right to the front gate. The person at the gate directed us where to go, even though there signs and I had great instructions. We had a key to get into the building and another into the condo. There was also suggestions on places to visit, where to eat and lots of helpful tips. Even though we have been to Marco Island before the recommendations and advice was very helpful. This was our 5th visit to Marco Island and I think our best. The condo was on the 8th floor providing fabulous views from the deck and provided plenty of room. My family and I enjoyed walks everyday on the beach (collecting lots of shells and a few sand dollars) and walks to the Marina to look for the Manatees and Dolphins. This condo provided 'everything' you could ever think of that would be needed for a beach vacation.
I highly recommend this condo to anyone thinking about visiting Marco Island!!!! Thanks again to Louise Mitchell for allowing us to stay in your condo. We definitely will be staying here again.

Thanks for the great review Tim. Happy you had such a great vacation and look forward to having you back!
I'll be back...,that says it all!
Our family of five adults had a great time.
Louise's condo is very pleasant not fancy which I like and felt like home. I did not feel like I had to clean it everyday and watch out for possible spills etc
We would relax and enjoy the outdoor indoor living.
We have stayed at SS for over 30 years and really like the quieter side looking over Tigertail! We also like this layout with the balconies off both bedrooms and living area that makes the condo feel even more spacious.
Having said that I found Louise to be extremely accommodating as we requested to arrive a day earlier than planned and our request was graciously accepted as the condo was vacant. That extra day was extremely beneficial to make the vacation complete .
I do plan to visit Marco every year following in my mother and her sisters footsteps . Our adult daughters are also continuing the tradition.

Well equipped and amazing views
The owner was great to work with. Very responsive to emails and questions. People, the sunset views don't get better than they are from this balcony. People line the beaches and you can watch it in peace on your own balcony and all the people outside on this side of building applaud it when it happens. Ice maker in room is a nice upgrade, many don't have this in these buildings. Bed was very comfortable. Overall a+. When we go back to Marco we will consider this property again unless we buy a spot to call our own.
