Beautiful condo with everything we needed and more.
Marco island is beautiful and easy to navigate. Many great restaurants nearby. The condo is very well equipped and is a perfect location on the South End of Marco. Easy to walk a few hundred feet to the beach and spend the day yet go back to the condo for a break from the sun. GREAT PLACE!!
Great unit, great view!
This is a great unit and the owners were wonderful and very attentive. The unit was recently updated and very clean. We really appreciated some of the personal touches in the unit, and the beach chairs / beach toys. The kitchen has everything you would hope for while on vacation – the coolers came in very handy! The unit has spectacular views and is perfectly located in the building. Really enjoyed our week at this special place!
This condo is very clean , well decorated and an excellent position on the beach with an incredible view ! Everything that you would need for a great beach vacation is included – beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers, tennis racquets, etc. Melissa was a pleasure to deal with, we would not hesitate to rent this unit again. Thanks for a great vacation !
Very nice condo
We have stayed at Seawinds Condos for 4 years. This is our first time in Rob and Melissa’s condo. It is by far the cleanest of all the condos we have stayed at. The master bed is very comfortable and the condo is updated and comfortable. The full size washer and dryer were wonderful and thanks to others who left detergent and cleaners behind. The kitchen supplies are upscale and fully covered for any needs. The beach supplies are plenty with very nice Tommy Bahama chairs, umbrella and various kids sand toys. We really enjoyed our stay at this condo. Everything was easy and pleasant. Just some thoughts: There was only 1 trash bag and I wished there were more. We stayed there 2 weeks and used our grocery bags for trash bags. I wish there was more room for a lazy boy type of chair for relaxing while watching television. We used the couch but it was tight. There are other chairs in the kitchen area but they are not comfortable. We would recommend this condo to anyone. Melissa was very helpful and addressed all our questions and needs. Seawinds Condos in general has made improvements. It is more updated and must have better management or cleaners and maintenance people. They have painted, cleaned and repaired many areas. Thank you for a wonderful 2 week stay in Marco Island at your wonderful condo.
Thank you Cindy for taking time to submit a five star review of your stay! We are glad that you enjoyed all the extra upscale items we provide for all of our guests. Our living room queen size sofa sleeper couch (Lazy Boy brand :)) is full size with 3 cushion seating. We enjoyed having you as our guest and look forward to accommodating you in the future. Thank you again! Melissa
The condo was perfect and the view was to die for! We had a wonderful Christmas vacation – thank you!!
Week in Paradise
We have been coming to Marco Island annually since 2006 and have stayed in Rob and Melissa’s condos the last 3 years. Marco is our favorite vacation spot and their condos have been great! We love the attention to detail, including excellent beach equipment, really nice beds, tasteful decoration and very clean. Highly recommended!
Thank you for your amazing review. We love our repeat guests and look forward to hosting your stay again next year. Take Care, Rob & Melissa
Amazing! Would recommend this place 100%
Not only was Marco island the most relaxing and beautiful place for our vacation. This condo was top notch!!!! Everything we could have possibly needed was there and we felt like we were at home from day one! Such a beautiful condo with all the upgrades. Incredibly spotless and comfortable! We felt like the owners were our friends from day one! They are available for questions, suggestions, and anything you need. We’ve stayed in many rental condos and this was BY FAR the best and our favorite!
Thank you Michelle! We really enjoyed hosting your Marco Island vacation and appreciated you taking time to write us a review. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to hosting your stay again in the future! Take care and thank you again! Rob & Melissa
Updated, clean, great beach with fabulous view
Plenty of amenities and supplies
We were thrilled to have hosted your families special Christmas celebration. You were great guests and we welcome the opportunity to rent to you in the future. Thank you! Rob & Melissa
Wonderful experience, will be back next year!!!!!
Melissa and Rob are great to work with. They answered all e-mails and communications within a couple of hours and were very accommodating.
First, I have to say that my sister and I are extremely picky and it takes a lot to impress us, and this condo really impressed us and met all our expectations.
We have stayed at different condos in Marco for the last 10 years, and all of them had a higher rental fee than this unit, yet none of them were as clean or well stocked as this unit. Everything that you will need is there from the kitchen supplies, to linens, to beach items and all are of high quality.
All the finishes used in the renovation are high end and very tasteful.
The view from the balcony is amazing!!!!!!!! Great spot to watch dolphins swim by, which we did everyday.
The condo is close to restaurants, grocery stores, and other shopping.
We highly recommend this condo!!!!!!! We would give it more stars if it were possible.
Thank you for the great review! We are flattered that we were able to impress you and your sister. We are grateful to our great local team that we work with. We loved hosting your Marco Island Getaway and look very much forward to hosting it again in 2017!
Home Away From Home; Highly Recommend
I can’t say enough positive things about our Sea Winds stay. Melissa was very accommodating, attentive, & extremely easy going to work with. The unit itself contained everything imaginable to make your stay as comfortable & worry free as possible including all cooking equipment, a generous amount of linens (bath towels/sheets), beach towels, & beach supplies (chairs, umbrellas/canopy, coolers/ice packs, sand toys); after a quick trip to one of the nearby supermarkets, you are all set. The most important feature of the unit for me was that it was immaculately clean & up-to-date. It truly was our home away from home. We had a wonderful time & look forward to returning again.
Thank you for the fantastic review! One of top priorities is cleanliness, we are fortunate enough to have the best cleaning staff that has been with us for years. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to accommodating you in the future. Take Care, Melissa and Rob
This is one of the best VRBO rentals we’ve done. Condo is beautiful! Everything is just as it appears in their photos. Location is great! Sunsets from the balcony were perfect. Cannot beat all the “extras” that are included. Most rentals have the basics in how they are “stocked”. This one goes above & beyond the basics. From the beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers, ‘noodles’ to the availability of beach towels, adequate supply of bath towels to all the extras in the kitchen – plenty of dishes, flatware, wine glasses, corkscrew etc. We didn’t lack anything we needed. The beds are so much more comfortable than the average rental! Owners were fantastic about communications – before, during & after – even heard from Melissa shortly after we arrived to make sure everything was fine. Marco is a wonderful place to vacation and we loved staying here!
There were many weekly renters arriving at “Sea Winds” Sat evening and leaving the following Sat am. They were all unloading/loading full vehicles of beach equipment etc onto luggage carts. It was so nice (since we flew to Ft Myers) to just wheel in our luggage and start our vacation. There was no rush to the store either, other than food, since there were adequate supplies of paper products to get us started, and we didn’t lack anything. Prior renters also left things to use like coffee filters, aluminum foil etc. We did the same & left such items for future renters as well. It was fun to play some of the games they had available, didn’t get to any of the movies since the weather was gorgeous!
Upon arrival, “Sea Winds” seemed to have a lot of rules (the property, not the condo unit). It turned out to be NO big deal as the rules were common sense things that people who are considerate of others would or wouldn’t do anyway. We chalked it up the property having people in the past who didn’t understand common courtesy; so as it turned out, no issues for us or our teenagers. It was a busy place but not “crowded” and everyone was very friendly and happy to be on vacation.
Suggestions for visiting Marco: We rented bikes for the teens since they couldn’t drive the rental car. An inexpensive way to give them a little freedom to ‘get away’, get out for ice cream or hit Starbucks. Dreamlander Tours does a great jet ski dolphin tour. We loved it! Marco has many outstanding restaurants.
Thank you Linda for your wonderful review. We are thrilled that your family enjoyed their stay. You were fantastic guests and we hope we can accommodate you again soon! Take care and happy summer! Rob & Melissa
Wonderful Week At Seawinds Marco Island
We had a wonderful experience. We arrived late in the evening and the keys and rental information were easily accessible based on the directions given by the owner. Upon arrival the unit was clean and well equipped for our stay. The kitchen was well equipped to meet any needs, the beach gear provided was ideal, and the beds were comfortable. The lanai was well equipped and in fact we watched dolphins go by every morning during breakfast. We never had to wait for elevators which can be an issue in some of the larger complexes. We utilized the pool and beach access everyday. The owner was wonderful to deal with. We received regular contact in the days leading up and she even checked on us the first day to make sure everything was okay. We had a wonderful experience.
Thank you for taking time to write a wonderful review. We love sharing our home away from home with families! So glad you had a great time, the dolphins are amazing! We hope we can accommodate you again in the future! Take Care, Rob and Melissa
Amazing time on Marco Island!
I have to admit that Melissa is one of the best owners we have ever worked with. She was quick to respond and addressed every concern we had (before, during, and after our trip). We took in everything there is to do on Marco: Everglades tour, swam with manatees right out in the channel at Cape Marco, shelling up and down the beach, boat tour to Cape Romano with dolphins jumping through the waves, picturesque sunsets, and amazing dining (CJ’s, Mango’s Dockside Bistro, Paradise Gourmet Seafood). The condo is just as pictured. We are used to much bigger condos (1800-2400 sq. ft) so this one felt a little claustrophobic to us but we knew this going in. The walls are thin and you can hear everything on the balcony, but those are minor consequences. The lanai is the best feature of the condo because it is MUCH bigger than anticipated (the ceiling fan is a perfect touch). We spent long mornings on the lanai with coffee (seriously there is no rush to get to the beach, it’s huge and there is plenty of space for front row access no matter when you go out). The water is calm, extremely clear, and warm (in June anyway). We were able to snorkel at the cape and see some very cool wildlife (Garr, MANATEE, nurse sharks, turtles, Rays). Beach towels are huge and lush. Tommy Bahama beach chairs and umbrellas are perfect for this beach. Two coolers were great for having everything we needed for a perfect day at the beach. Some things we’d like to see in the future: a garbage disposal (you wouldn’t think you’d miss this…..until you don’t have one), high top chair set for the lanai so you can sit out there and see over the high railing, Tupperware (can’t store any leftovers, we bought some and left them there if you want to keep them), binoculars (I think every beach condo we have rented has had some), and perhaps a few more cooking utensils (only one spatula). There are plenty of other beachfront communities to choose from that are a better value all over Florida (price per square foot times rental length), but very few can offer what Marco has (there are a ton of aesthetics unique to Marco) making Sea Winds the best value on the island. The condo complex is basic with a very small lobby and no workout facilities, but the pool was bigger than anticipated and extremely nice. Very secure facility as well. We would highly recommend Marco Island to anyone looking for a quiet, laid back, beach vacation, and this condo is perfect for small families and couples.
Thank you so much for your 5 star review! We appreciate all the feedback you have provided. We have in the past provided binoculars but after having them disappear twice we opted not supply them. We too would love an above railing outdoor seating set but unfortunately the height is a potential liability and safety issue. The SeaWinds building walls and flooring are made of solid concrete as required by the city to meet hurricane standards. We have just added some additional cooking utensils, a cuisinart waffle maker and have just ordered a crockpot. We love getting feedback to make your vacation experience that much better! On Marco Island there are only 5 beachfront condo buildings that allow weekly rentals. None that we are aware of are 1,800 sq ft. For those looking for larger accommodations, our second property next door at the Apollo, is a beachfront 3 bedroom (1500 sq ft) condo. We too love the beachfront balcony (particularly at sunset!), the spacious beach and all the unique experience Marco Island has to offer! Thanks again for your review and video! Take care!
The Perfect Vacation!
My sister and I had yet another wonderful Marco Island vacation. The newly renovated condo is beautiful, extremely clean and has everything you could possibly want for a
marvelous vacation at your beachfront home away from home. The view is stunning and sunsets breathtaking. We especially enjoyed the beach and pool for sunning and relaxing. The shelling was fantastic this year. Melissa
is a genuine pleasure to work with. She is attentive and makes the rental process a breeze. Thank you, Rob and Melissa, for
another perfect Marco Island vacation.
Thank you for your amazing review. We always look forward to accommodating your annual Marco getaway! Both you and Ellen are great guests and we look forward to having you back in 2017! Take care, Rob & Melissa
My husband and I just spent an amazing week here, and we have no regrets. The condo is sparkling clean and beautifully decorated, and the location is spectacular. The balcony overlooks the beach, including the incredible sunsets and cruising dolphins. The pool is even nicer than it looks in the photos, and the grounds are beautifully maintained. Marco Island is an excellent place for a relaxing vacation, and the quality and location of this condo only added to our wonderful experience – we highly recommend it. Thank you, Melissa and Rob!
Thank you for your amazing review! We look forward to hosting your Marco Island beach getaway again the future. Best, Melissa and Rob
Look no further!
This was our fourth visit to the Sea Winds Condominiums. Condo #803 was the nicest unit that we have stayed at. Melissa was very pleasant and prompt to respond to our request and book our vacation. The unit was exceptionally clean, well appointed and comfortable. We appreciated the high quality furniture, linens, balcony furniture, beach chairs and umbrellas. We took full advantage of the fantastic tennis courts. While the ocean water temperature was cold, we thoroughly enjoyed the Jacuzzi and heated pool. We would easily choose this condo for any future visits to Marco Island. Thank you!
We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay and enjoyed all of our updated amenities. We look forward to accommodating you again in the future! Take Care and stay warm! Melissa & Rob
Marco Island Retreat
The condo is newly renovated and done extremely well. The sunsets are beautiful and wonderfully viewable from the balcony. The beach is very well groomed – you can walk for a very long way and being able to get to the beach so easily is a real plus. We saw dolphins almost every morning – what fun to watch. Melissa and Rob are very attentive and responsive – could not ask for better. This is such a relaxing place – we will certainly return.
Thank you for the wonderful review! Watching the Dolphins from the privacy of our balcony is one of favorite things to do too! So happy to hear you liked all of our updates. We look forward to accommodating you again in the future! Take care!
This is the second year that we’ve used this condo, and there will definitely be a third! It’s clean, well-equipped and is a perfect location! We loved every minute!
Thank you so much for the great review! We work extremely hard to keep our unit well-equipped and most importantly, super clean. The view is perfect, especially with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. We look forward to your return visit next year. Thanks again!
Wonderful Marco Vacation
My sister and I spent another fantastic vacation at Rob and Melissa’s Sea Winds condo. As this was our fourth year, the condo feels like our home away from home and we love it. As always, the condo was very clean and well appointed. We enjoyed the beach and pool everyday as the weather was perfect. The sunsets were incredible. It’s always a pleasure to work with Melissa and we wouldn’t rent from anyone else. Thanks again, Rob and Melissa, for another wonderful vacation!
We love having you two as our guests and appreciate you trusting us with your vacation. Thank you for your wonderful reveiew and we look forward to seeing you again next year!
Great condo. Highly recommend!!!!
My sister and I rented this condo for the first time on October 2016. We were very impressed by the high quality of the fixtures, the furnishings as well as the cleanliness of the condo and the great customer service provided by Melissa.
We only had two small suggestions for her at the end of our stay. We just spent another wonderful week in the condo and were extremely impressed by the fact that Melissa had listened to our suggestions and had implemented them.
We noticed and appreciated all the new items/ improvements in the condo since our stay in October such as:
The cabinet between the twin beds in the second bedroom
The table fans in both bedrooms
The upgraded cushions on the couch
The new beach towels that are so soft and plush
And of course the new full size, top of the line LG washer and dryer, with all the bells and whistles. Definitely not something you expect to find on a rental at the beach.
My sister and I have stayed at many condos in Marco Island and other beaches throughout Florida, and this condo beats them all hands down.
Some may have been bigger, but they fall short on providing such things as good quality flatware, dishes, pots and pans and also fell short on the quantity of these items. Melissa and Rob have thought and continue to think about how to make their guests comfortable and making them feel at home and they encourage their guests to make suggestions to improve their stay.
They provide everything that you would need and more to enjoy your stay in their condo and Marco Island. In a scale of 1 to 10 we give this condo and it’s owners a 20!!!!!
Thank you Melissa and Rob
Thank you so much for this fantastic review. We appreciate how you and your sister take such great care of our unit. We love feedback and were happy to implement your suggestions, upgraded cushions and the night table between the twin beds. We look forward to your future visits. Thanks again and take care!
Great place – beach & balcony for sunsets!
Our adult family of 5 had such an enjoyable stay! The location is ideal – great beach, less populated as its further south, restaurant, tennis, pool on premise, 10 minute walk to Marco Walk Plaza, and nice walks to the hotel beach restaurants that have entertainment. The staff is professional and guests & owners are friendly.
From start to finish, Melissa was very responsive and helpful with additional questions on visit spots, and a minor item during our stay (thank you!).
The condo is just like the pictures shown on the website – awesome views from the 9th floor balcony, clean, new, well supplied kitchen, games, beach chairs & toys. We will be back!
Thank you Carol and Dave for your wonderful review! We agree the views from the 9th floor are amazing. We appreciated you taking such great care of our condo and would love to have you back! Thanks again.
Another week in Paradise!
We loved the view of the gulf and the beautiful sunsets. The convenience of walking out the doors and right on to the beach was great. Everything in the condo was in excellent condition. There was a convenience store and restaurants within walking distance. This was a great place for relaxing. We loved it so much, we have booked it again for next year!!
We too love the convenience of the beach, shopping and fabulous restaurants! We are looking forward to accommodating your 2016 week in paradise!
Thank you, Rob & Melissa
Thank you so much Rob and Melissa:
We had a very good time sharing your condo in these almost two weeks. Everything was perfect and your respond to our inquiries were very professional. We were welcome for Amanda and she showed us everything. In a few minutes we felt like in home, with a very beautiful beach that we enjoyed that very afternoon. All the condo was very clean and organized and it exceeded all our expectation. July 2015You suggestion for the restaurant and amenities were very helpful.Everything worked perfectly. Our rating is 5 STARTS, EXCELLENT. Thank you again, have a nice weekend and hope to be there next summer, God permitting.
Thank you for your 5 star review! We are thrilled that we exceeded your expectations. You were the perfect guests and we look forward to having you back again in the future. Take Care, Rob & Melissa
Great views, easy access to beach and CLEAN!!!
Owners were quick to respond and very professional in our inquiries and rental process. We were greeted upon our arrival by Amanda and Ron, and given a tour and our questions answered. What a welcoming to a great vacation! The grounds were exceptionally clean as well as the condo. The beach chairs were of higher quality as well as the linens and beds. All appliances worked well and the kitchen well stocked. Marco islands restaurants were exceptional and we had excellent, friendly, professional services on the nights we decided not to cook and eat out. Beaches were clean and patrolled throughout the day—surrounded by friendly families all enjoying the clear water and scenery. Have vacationed at Tybee Island, Gulf Shores, Dauphin Island, Pensacola, Destin, Maui, Cayman Islands–Marco is one of the top contenders for beaches, cost, and atmosphere. You won’t be disappointed.
