Starting on 6/2 any reservations starter after or on 6/2 will have access to tween waters resort amenities plus a change out of towels if the guests brings them to the resort of tween waters they will give them new ones when they turn in the old ones there are fees to some amenities. But others are free of charge.
Location: The unit is in the 2200 Building The first floor has the laundry, the second floor starts with the rooms and this unit is located on the third floor. This complex is very close to the entry of the South Seas Resort. So it is convenient for the restaurants and activities outside the resort.
Amenities: There is a beach directly in the front of the unit which is accessed via a path of wood decking. There are two tenis courts (fee to play), 2 gas grills poolside and a covered eating area, also you may select one of three heated pools to use. We provide beach chairs, 2 beach umbrellas not guaranteed any more due to repeat guest damage that is not reported, beach sand toys, and beach cooler. These are located in a locker area on the first floor so you do not need to drag them up the stairs with you. This locked area is an owner area you will have access to. If you rent through South Seas you will not have access to this area. I pay a little more per month to make sure my internet is faster that what is the norm at South Seas
Beach: There are 7 total Beach Villas and only 4 paths to the beach, we are located directly in front of a path. There are elevators in the building or stairs if you choose. Caution: Two of the building do not have elevators (2100 and 2000 buildings). The beach is NOT controlled by South Seas but you may not use the chairs or unbrellas or towels provided by their staff. That is why we provide chairs Your beach towels are located inside your unit.
View of the Beach: Direct view of the Gulf. This unit has only one floor above it so the view of the beach is excellent. There is a screen balcony for which to enjoy the view.
TV's: There are 2 televisions that are flat screen. Both have DVD players. We provide some movies for which to watch. Free WiFi is available.
Bedding: There is a king bed and a pull out sofa bed, plus a love seat in the living room. The bedding consists of a duvet and comforter, Hotel collection decorator pillow shams and down pillows. All linens are also provided for the beds and sofa.
Kitchen: There is a full size kitchen in the unit. All of the necessary items are available for preparing meals for the occupancy of the unit. There is an ice maker in the refrigerator.
Laundry: There is laundry on the first floor that is shared. It is coin operated. So if you are going to use the laundry bring quarters. ($2.25 for a wash and $2.25 for dry)
South Seas Amenities: YOU DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO THOSE AMMENITIES. This includes the trolly, the golf course, resort restaurants, gym, and pool complex 2 miles down the raod.
NOTE: IF YOU DESIRE THOSE AMENITIES THEN BOOK AT SOUTH SEAS ALSO THE RATES AT SOUTH SEAS ARE ABOUT DOUBLE WHAT I CAHRGE. SO IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A GREAT SHELLING BEACH, 3 POOLS, AND ACCESS TO FEE FOR TENIS MY CONDO 2223 IS FOR YOU!!!
ALL OF THE BEACH CONDOS ARE INDIVIDUALLY OWNED AND NOT CREATED EQUALLY, WE HAVE UPGRADED OUR CONDO, NOT ALL ARE THAT WAY.
Keywords: south seas, Gulf front, direct beach front villa, great view

All my beach items to include chairs, beach towels, cooler and sand toys 6.

Fantastic condo with great amenities and location.
This condo has a great location beautiful views and very accommodating amenities.Checking in/picking up keys/finding the unit was easy and everything that was described and more. The bedroom is clean with very soft linens. The bathroom was clean and had a lot of shelf space. There were added extras like the hairdryer, shampoo/conditioner for our use. The kitchen had extra spices to use. I brought more trash bags which was helpful. We enjoyed the porch table and eating breakfast watching the Osprey In their nests in the morning. My only recommendation was I wish there was a swimsuit drying rack on the porch but maybe the condo association does not allow. The elevator was nice to have and the storage locker was very accessible.We only use the nice beach chairs but did see the cooler, umbrellas and toys. There was also a luggage cart that we used(hopefully that was OK Kim) The pool was very refreshing, clean,adequate chairs and a shaded table for lunch. The grill was simple to use. They were replacing a few boards on the path to beach But we didn’t even notice needing repair. We enjoyed many restaurants on Captiva that were close by. We had breakfast at RC Otters which was good. There is a Starbucks within walking distance but in the morning the line tends to be long(1 1/2 hours) We ate lunch at the Green Flash and the Keylime Bistro which were both very good.Both have inside and outside options.Within walking distance just outside the gate is a small strip mall where we got takeout sandwiches at Provisions Delicatessen. They were fantastic! There is an ice cream gift shop called Latte’Da which is next to RC Otters. We had ice cream (Keylime was fantastic) but a very limited selection. They also have hot and cold coffee drinks. We had dinner at the well known Bubble Room and Mucky Duck. The Bubble Room has good but large portions and fantastic cake ($7.50 per slice but worth it)(20 minutes for cake take out) The Mucky Duck at 4:3 take names but don’t open until 5. We arrived at 4:50 and sat to eat at 7 PM. By 630 it was a 3 hr wait. We enjoyed The Captiva House for a nice more elegant experience, white table clothes and twinkle lights in trees. Doc fords across the street had good food and an active bar scene with multiple TVs. I would recommend this condo to anyone .
We enjoyed the stay at the Dennis' condo on Captiva. The South Seas Association people were easy to deal with even though we weren't registered through them, and the proximity to the beach can't be beat.
Great apartment, location, and amenities; reserved for 2 weeks in 2019! Kim's suggestions regarding activities and dining were right on. Thanks. Would definitely recommend.
Peaceful and beautiful
Condo was perfect for my wife and I. Also the condo had a great view with everything you need. This is the perfect location to kick back,enjoying the sun and beach. This was our 3rd trip there....worth every penny. Which is cheaper to rent from the owner.
Yes much less expensive than renting with the resort. Or renting on airbnb or VRBO with their new 12% or more in fees they now charge
Better Than Expected
Location and amenities. Adjacent to the pool and path to beach. We also enjoyed watching the Osprey family in their nest from the screened porch. The lighting in all rooms was bright and kitchen was stocked nicely. As for beach stuff, the locker had 4 chairs, 3 umbrellas, noodles, floats, etc. We wanted for nothing!

We have stayed at South Seas many times. This was our second time renting through Home Away vs. South Seas Direct. You miss out in the South Seas amenities - Daily room cleaning, trolley service, resort restaurants. pools and and boutiques, but their daily fee is not worth it. The Beach Villas are the perfect location for the Beach Lover. Owner provides Tommy Bahama Beach Chairs and Umbrellas, which are top of the line and allow you to settle away from the chairs and umbrellas lined up military style for "South Seas Guests". The Beach is beautiful and the water is warm. It is a quick walk down the beach or road to the restaurants for dinner. There is a Captiva Trolley service that runs until 10 pm and leaves from outside the South Seas Gate. We recommend Mucky Duck, for sunset cocktails, Key Lime Bistro, Sunshine Café & RC otter. The screened balcony looks out on the beach and is the perfect spot for a quiet morning coffee or sunset cocktail.
The Kitchen provided all the necessary equipment to make our daily breakfast & lunch. We brought our own lunch bags but zip locks are provided. Bed is comfortable, but the beautiful white comforter in the photo has been replaced. The shower area is well appointed but Very small. Only 2 beach & bath towels are provided per guest. The Living area is in need of an upgrade. We stayed after the prior guest that stained the chair and the orange stain remains.
glad you enjoyed your stay. Just a few comments correct no daily cleaning included but you can add that on for a fee. Also the white comforter just did not work in a rental unit was too difficult to keep clean I think I purchased 10 in one year. The tommy chairs I get many complements on easy to carry to the beach. Now one other correction about amenities you get the same three condo pools everyone does if you book in the beach villas chairs are provided at the pools and so are gas grills. At the pool you can use any chairs or tables. Also the Doc Fords restaurant INSIDE the resort you CAN eat at and pay with credit card or cash. So just wanted to be sure this was clear the guest may have not tried to eat at doc fords but you ARE able to do that. But I agree so many choices outside the resort well within walking distance. Or take the trolley outside the resort. As far as the recliner chair yes someone stained it the last guest and this guest arrived the same day as the departure so I was not able to have the steam cleaner come in. it is a small orange stain and was removed by the steamer company. This is the second time this month I have had to have the steamer company come and clean the chair due to the guests getting something orange on it maybe soda or suntan lotion that is tinted. Not sure exactly.
The absolute BEST shelling in the world. You can walk for a VERY long way on the beach. The resort is gated and guests not staying on the resort are not allowed on the property.
