Wonderful stay!! My 70 year old mother and I enjoyed a week long stay in December. We flew into Fort Meyers and rented a car. It took about 50 minutes to reach Marco Island. Picked up our keys for the condo from Marco Island Reality which was easy to find. The woman there was very sweet and helpful! Took another 10 minutes to reach the condo from the reality office. The guard at the gate to South Seas was very funny and helpful. He gave us a temporary parking pass since we arrived after 5:00 P.M. on Saturday and there is no check in again until Monday. If you arrive on a Saturday evening you have to park on the outside of the building with a temporary parking pass for a day until you can check in on Monday morning. At that time you buy a $25.00 parking pass and park under a covered parking area. Everyone including the property manager, owner, staff, residents, and workers on the island were all very helpful and friendly. The condo was very clean and quiet. There were beach chairs, an umbrella, towels, and a cooler in the condo which all come in handy. This condo is on the 19th floor but was very easy to get in and out of. There was an elevator at the end of the hall that you had to wait very little time for. The view from the balcony was amazing. The sunrise and sunset views are picture perfect. Enjoyed breakfast and coffee out on the balcony every morning. There is a very nice and clean swimming pool and exercise facility. South Seas is a gated largely retirement community which is very private and quiet. I am a mom of two teenagers (they stayed home this trip) so I think kids may not enjoy it here as much since they do have a large list of rules to follow. That being said I completely enjoyed myself because I could read, relax, and enjoy time pass by without interruption. Marco has wonderful little restaurants all over with a variety of food. There are several nice little shops, grocery stores, and gas stations. I found it easy to navigate around the island in my car or on foot. If you are looking for more activities, nearby Naples is only about a 20 minute drive. The beach here is amazing!! The best part of the stay were the long walks on the beach. White clean sand and the shelling is WOW–let’s just say you won’t be disappointed!! If you are looking for a nice, quiet, relaxing vacation on the beach you won’t be disappointed with Marco Island. I would go back in a heartbeart!!
