Condo w-2 Bedrooms & 2 Bathrooms
Northeastern Owner that loves Southwest Florida. There's no place like Marco Island.
Craig purchased this Condo in 2010
Why Craig chose Marco Island
We vacationed throughout the Carribean and searched all over to find a perfect vacation spot. After searching many years, we discovered Marco Island and immediately fell in love with it. We looked at many properties on Marco Island, then chose South Seas based on the views, beach front access, boat docks, ammenities and upscale environment of the grounds and unit.
What makes this Condo unique
Tennis courts, pickleball courts, boche ball, shuffleboard and a quiet atmosphere in a safe gated community. Beautifull boat docks with quick access to the Gulf of Mexico. If you don't belong on the property you will not get past the guard house. Covered parking. Well kept property.

A/C and construction noise made for less than a great stay
Plenty of space for a family of 4
Great beach gear
Walk to beach not as bad as it seems in pictures – takes 10 min or so and sand is hard packed
Everyone very nice
Great to have two full baths
A/C didn’t work days 1-3. Called for help and didn’t hear back same day. Once a repair man came out, he advised that I’d have to switch off and on the breaker switch if the AC stopped working again. I did so every day for the remaining 4 days as it continued to not work
Dishwasher was not clean – smelled terrible
Some of the glasses were not clean – had coffee residue in them
Small repairs needed to be made – significant scratches on entry way walls and a tile missing in the bathroom
Guest soap provided while still wrapped, looked dirty
Construction being done on the floors above so from about 8 am on, there were drills that were very loud throughout the condo
Pool closes at dusk so not ideal for anyone who wants an early evening swim
I didn’t understand rationale for the condo fee.
Had the A/C or construction not been an issue, I would stay there again.
We absolutely loved Caitlin’s Beachfront Condo, the view from the balcony was wonderful. It was a little bit of a walk to the water, but it was well worth it. We would definitely stay there again.
Enjoyed stay except for .5 mile walk to waters edge.
Everything was perfect.
The condo was great. Wonderful views of sunset and the fish jumping We will be definitely staying again.
Very Lovely Place and area
Loved it soooooo much. Will definitely go back.
The things we were not aware of or had trouble with was:
1) The checking in. Everyone tells you that you have to check in tower #3 but they didn't tell you that you have to have a key first to get in tower #3 to see the ppl that will check you in. I didn't know that.
2) We didn't know about the Turtles deal... We usually like walking on the beach at night and do some night fishing but you can't use lights on the beach at all or on your balcony after 9 PM.
3) It was a little walk to the beach. I took it as an exercise but you have to be prepared for it specially if you're carrying beach stuff with you.
having all that said, the place is amazing and clean, the area is beautiful and relaxing... will be going back.
Marco Island Family Vacation
I had a very wonderful experience with Craig and booking his property. His condo is very nice, we loved the view and the over all feel of the building. I was very disappointed that when we arrived we learned that the washer and dryer wasn't located in the condo but on the floor. We also had to load a card with money to be able to use them and then it would debit the card at that time. We had some cash left on the card at the time of departure and it will not be refunded to you. Our biggest complaint was the constant nagging of "rules" the condo and pool had. No one was on the same page and we were told something different daily. I felt like an elementary student rather than a grown adult on vacation able to relax at the pool or simply walking through the building. They also have set hours for adult swim and when children are able to be at the pool. The pool also closes at 8p which I think is ridiculous in a vacationing spot. The walk to the beach wasn't bad but if you have younger children it can be exhausting for them. The pond surrounded my trees and such that you walk past to get to the beach keeps the no-see-ums around and we would be attacked and had bites covering us. My husband vapes and they told us of the rule of no vaping or smoking inside the pool area, and that is understandable but they made us literally walk all the way to the beach or to the designated smoking area that was in the front of the building near the entrance a ridiculous distance away from the building and the pool. It seemed the security person on duty at the pool was always going up to a guest and telling them what they weren't allowed to do. I think overall this is a beautiful place, well taken care of and a great location however, it was vacation for my family and I and we wanted to just relax and take it all in but we were in a very controlled environment. If you are just adults going to enjoy a vacation it might work better. This post has nothing to do with Craig or his condo but the condo President and the rules he has set fourth.
Tennis Courts, Boche Ball, Pickle Ball, Shuffleboard and Boat docks available.
