Please note, the rental rate for our privately owned condo is considerably lower than most South Seas Island Resort rates for the same time period, however, our Marina Villa #905 all inclusive and excellent pricing does NOT include the separate resort amenities package, which you most likely may not be able to purchase directly from resort.

South Seas resort is a member and guest property. As such, they offer certain resort amenities only to South Seas property guests and their special amenity access is on a restricted basis.

Even without South Seas special amenities package, there is still much to do at the beach and pool and throughout Captiva island. Our Marina Villa #905 is better equipped & more beautifully furnished than most other similar resort condos and has many unique aspects and freebies within our unit. The unique location and view can't be beat within the Marina Villas and most Bay side units at the resort.

Privately owned MARINA VILLA 905 @ South Seas Island Resort on the water. Great condo in the best location with the gorgeous views. Steps to pool & Close to beach, with beach cart to carry stuff.

Pay by credit card with secure Homeaway/VRBO payment process. eCheck is our preferred method of payment.

Please make sure to COMPARE our rates with South Seas prices!!! Then look at the features and amenities you will enjoy with this Marina Villa. We do NOT offer resort amenities packages.

Our Marina Villa 905 is located at the VERY QUIET north end of the resort. The condo is on the first floor at the corner of the building, one of the few units with both lanai and front porch. The unobstructed WATER VIEW from our lanai overlooks beautiful Pine Island Sound and the resort yacht harbor. You can watch the dolphins play every day!

The Marina Villa POOL is right at our doorstep, and it's only a 5 minute walk to the beach on the Gulf of Mexico, with its endless white SUGAR SAND beaches, balmy breezes, and TURQUOISE waters.

The sunsets are awesome, LAZY DAYS on the beach so easy, and life is beautiful...

The COZY and very picturesque Captiva Village is nearby, and browsing here is big fun - perfect for shopping and dining.

Serenity, comfort, and total RELAXATION is guaranteed at our wonderfully appointed Marina Villa. The completely remodeled 2 bedroom and 2 bath condominium has been designed and furnished with a Caribbean TROPICAL FEEL. Lanai is right on bay with dolphin, manatee and tropical birds and boats seen regularly.

The KITCHEN is equipped with coffee maker, double door refrigerator with ice maker dispenser, dishwasher, oven, flat top 4 burner stove, microwave and all the cooking and serving utensils you would need.

Our DINING AREA between kitchen and living room is ready to seat and serve six vacationers for meals - or for those late night games with the FAMILY. The living area, which overlooks the lanai with its spectacular full water view, has a love seat, new couch with queen pull out, coffee and end tables, and also a 42' flat screen TV with DVD player, CD stereo with remote, computer with wireless internet access, free local and long distance phone calls.

Wonderful home with a beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fun, relaxing vacation in Captiva! A beautiful home on a beautiful island. The villa was clean and spacious for our family of five. We had such a wonderful time watching the dolphins play daily, bird watching and seeing all the boats coming and going. We even spotted a manatee on our last day there. We enjoyed visiting the beach daily to collect shells. We look forward to visiting again in the future!

Owner's Response: One thing more than any other that guests love about our Marina Villa is the view. Most guests have told us, "... it is the best location and view in the resort." We also hear that pictures just can't do our unit justice. We truly guarantee that you will see dolphins every day from the lanai. Come on down!

Just Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

Marina Villa is in a truly wonderful position. We spent much times just watching the amazing wildlife from the property. Dolphins, Manatees, Ospreys, Pelicans and so much more. One morning I saw a River Otter !!

The Villa was attractively and comfortably furnished, spotlessly clean and very well equipped. It is very hard to fault our stay here, so we have already booked again for 2018.

We loved it!!!

Thank you OurCaptiva for an amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5

Visited Captiva and Marina Villa in mid November. This is a "hidden" gem; hidden at least to us, as this was our first trip...we very much hope it won't be our last! As I've seen other reviews mention, 905 is exceptionally maintained, and the grounds (and the entire area) are truly beautiful, captivating (pun intended, but very accurate), and immensely relaxing. Food options on island are diverse and excellent, and the natural beauty and experiences we had will not be forgotten. My 8 year old likes to fish in ponds near our house ... I fear he'll never want to go back after the amazing saltwater fishing and catches he had in Captiva! Highlights also include amazing sunsets, manatee watching, a stroll through South Seas marina where I saw a dolphin race by in shallow water and pass a fish, only to whirl around, capture it, and race back by me with its catch in its mouth! Thank you to the Our Captiva team for an amazing trip, we'll be back!

High expectations were dramatically exceeded!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful location and beautiful roomy comfortable condo, perfectly described and loaded with everything we could think of needing or wanting – during those few moments when we were not entirely distracted by amazing wildlife experiences going on right off the balcony and along the mangrove lined canal. Day after day watching dolphins zipping after mullet along the marina shores, while they dodged occasional manatees under dive bombing pelicans, and all sorts of other spectacular birds. What a thrill. Not to mention some extraordinary events we also happened upon and managed to catch on video: mating manatees frolicking over on the main beach and two male blue herons in violent competition on the dock. I’m still wondering when we’ll find the time to sort through all the stills and videos to send some choice captures to the property owners - and to wildlife officials too. We had a few fun boat excursions and a great Ding Darling day but the best action was right on Captiva, right off Marina Villa #905 or on the pristine shell-packed beach a short walk away.

Beautiful location, amazing view, wonderful beaches

  • 5 of 5

We stayed one week in early August with our family of four (kids 4 and 3 yrs old). This home is an absolute gem. The view is stunning, and the condo has everything you need for the beach. It is a short walk to Captiva beach with endless beautiful open beach and seashells. A lovely small pool is right out front. The condo is well appointed and very comfortable. Enjoyed breakfast on the screened lanai every morning. Captiva offers endless fun and we enjoyed swimming at the beach, relaxing in the pool, renting a boat to explore the sound, fishing, restaurants, seashell museum, wildlife reserves, and more. Highly recommend Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary just about an hour away. A memorable vacation and thank you for a lovely stay.

About Our Captiva, LLC

The Mullins family have been loving Captiva since the 1980's. Our kids have spent weeks here annually and love the beach and resort. There is no limit to the activities they have enjoyed and bring many of their friends year after year. The Shell museum and Ding Darling NWR are almost as popular as the beach and Gulf.

Our Captiva, LLC purchased this villa in 2005

Why Our Captiva, LLC chose Captiva

The best location and view of all resort condos/Marina Villas, located in the prestigious north end. This unit has the best lanai and we love to sit on the lanai and watch the beautiful yachts coming and going, especially in the evening. We have never missed the awesome sunsets.

What makes this villa unique

HDTV's in every room, unique unobstructed views, free desktop computer and wireless internet with unlimited free local and long distance phone calls, the only satellite DISH TV service. Very well equipped.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great location, relaxing view and plenty of sun and beach time. The four of us all agree that this has been the most relaxing time of all!! Already planning our return next year! Plenty of Dolphin and manatee sightings, birds and wildlife to enjoy.
