South Seas Club is a 55 acre gated community with walking paths throughout. It is located on the beach in Marco Island.
Apartment 304 in Tower III is a front to back unit and is 1132 sq. ft. It is located on the third floor. The master bedroom and living room have a long view down the beach. This apartment does not overlook the pool and therefore tends to be quieter during the peak season. The bedrooms are also in a front to back position with two bathrooms between them. This offers more privacy in the bedrooms which seems to be important to some guests. Since this apartment is on a lower floor you also can enjoy watching the palm trees swaying in the breeze as well as view the beach. The apartment faces Southwest
We have made sure both of our condos are very well stocked. We have constantly upgraded both the furnishings and equipment that is included in the apartments. These are our homes and we have added the same amenities that are enjoyed at our permanent residence. Suggestions are also taken from guests who have written in our guest books and may have mentioned something we have overlooked. Mostly we get comments on how well stocked our apartments are. The only thing that you need to bring with you are your clothes and personal items!
Marco Island is located on the Southwest Gulf Coast of Florida, just across the Judge SS Jolley Bridge, about 300 yards from the mainland. Marco Island is a peaceful semi-tropical resort with gorgeous sunrises and magnificent sunsets.
The Island is six miles long, four miles wide and is the largest of the 10,000 Islands. It is near Naples and the Everglades. Winter daytime temperatures generally range from the mid 70's to mid 80's and evening temperatures are cool ranging from the mid 50's to low 60's. Summer is gorgeous on Marco with temperatures rarely above the low 90's with breezes off the Gulf to cool the Island.
Marco Island has approximately 12,000 year-round residents. This number swells to over 40,000 during the winter months.
The lifestyle on Marco is carefree. You can go into almost any restaurant wearing casual attire including shorts. Water sports, fishing, golf and a fabulous white sand beach are a few of the things that draw people to Marco from all over the world. Marco Island is also the largest of Florida's Ten Thousand Islands and is considered a gateway to the Everglades.
More than 200 species of birds, including the American Bald Eagle, live on Marco. The island also provides a habitat for loggerhead turtles, dolphins and the manatee. On the western shore of Marco Island, vacationers and residents enjoy a 3 1/2 mile white-sand crescent beach. Watching the many varieties of boats and recreational activities that abound in and above the waters at the beach is a constant source of entertainment. You can watch the fish jumping out of the water, the pelicans following the fishermen around hoping for a snack or join in the fun yourself and try your hand at parasailing or jet skiing. Dolphins are often spied swimming by the beach. We have even had one come join us for a swim. It was quite an experience. Canoeing the canals and waterways is a peaceful way to spend your time. Enjoying yourself on Marco can take many different forms.
The Everglades are located very close to Marco and provide a fascinating look at nature. Goodland is a small fishing village located in the southeast corner of Marco. On Sundays residents and visitors frequent Stan's for an afternoon of outdoor music, drinks and dancing. The Isle of Capri is another fishing village located just before the bridge to Marco. There are some nice restaurants there too.
