Marina Villa 905- Nataro Family - Feb 2020

Posted: Feb 18, 2020

Had a relaxing vacation on Beautiful Captiva. Our Captiva was very quick to respond to every need. Beautiful view from condo, had a wonderful time. Condo was well equipped and comfortable.

My favorite place on earth!

Posted: Feb 13, 2020

My husband and I have visited Marina Villa 905 for the month of January for five years in a row. We feel like it is our home away from home. The dolphins, osprey, manatee and egrets all welcomed us at arrival . . .like they knew us. The sunsets on the beach just across the street are incredible. WE love the restaurants, outdoor music, walks on the beach and down to the marina, and the quiet times by the pool just steps from our door. We love that we can just DO NOTHING but enjoy the nature and beautiful Island. We rent a golf cart for the month . . . it is so relaxing to never get in our car for 4 weeks. We don't need shopping malls, street traffic, noise . . . we totally unwind and relax and catch up what is important in our lives. Our Captiva . . . is heaven.

We have stayed at Marina Villa 905 two years in a row now! It is the perfect spot to watch the boats roll in and the dolphin jump all day!! The condo has everything you could need.

We had a great stay at the villa. The wildlife was amazing. The dolphins were active up and down the canal all week. Our daughter and her friend loved biking to the beach. The Villa is well appointed and I would recommend it to anyone heading to Captiva.

Location is "tip" of Captiva - literally! Watch marina boats come and go and dolphins and manatees galore. Only 2-3 min walk to the beach, where you can do the awesome sea shelling. Even though you are not a part of the "resort", the owners have provided an excellent cart/umbrella/chairs/towels to claim your own spot where it is not so crowded! Very clean, well stocked unit of supplies needed to do "eating in". Screened-in porch lets you enjoy the outdoors with no bugs or rain or interfering seagulls

This is our fourth year visiting Captiva and staying at Marina Villa 905. There are no words to describe how simply perfect this vacation was, but let me try . . . dolphins, pelicans, manatees, egrets, beach walks, shells, sunsets, heated pool, grills, a deck overlooking a tranquil marina, boat tours, great restaurants with music day and night, yoga, and memories. The condo is absolutely immaculate, adorable and well stocked for any family. Did I mention the rental team? Randy, Joe, Nacho and Kristen are such caring people . . . always checking in on us and very attentive to our every request. Immediate response! I can't thank them enough for making our visits so perfect. My heart and memories will always be on this Island . . . thank you OUR CAPTIVA!!!!

This is our fourth year renting Marina Villa 905 and there are no words to describe how beautiful it truly is. But let me try . . . sunsets, beach, shells, dolphins, manatees, egrets, pelicans, long walks, yoga, palm trees, heated pool, boat tours, outdoor grille, deck overlooking the most tranquil marina, great restaurants with live music all day and night! Oh . . . did I mention this? . . . the caring and attention to detail from the rental team is beyond expectation. Always checking in on us to see if we need anything and to make sure our stay is perfect. Always tending to our every need immediately!

Nestled among the swaying palm trees at the tip of Captiva Island is this gem of a condo and these are some of the descriptors that hopefully do it justice: Serene Private Comfortable Well-Equipped Accommodating Secure We stayed for a week at Marina Villa 905 and basically from the moment we walked in the front door were already planning our return visit! The space is ample, the furnishings very comfortable and "beachy" and most importantly, the condo was SPOTLESSLY clean. We had all the essentials and simply made a couple trips to the supermarket and we were set. We enjoyed the use of the swimming pool and the grills. A short walk to the beach was just what we wanted and got. We saw many types of birds and fish. Dolphins frollicked daily just outside our patio in the waterway to the marina. The extra treat was the momma and baby manatee's who each afternoon "lounged" in a quiet inlet. We got close enough to get some great pictures. We look forward to another stay in this amazingly aff

The property is great if you have a boat. We were close to our boat and able to keep an eye on it. View was wonderful.

Warner Family - Marina Villa - June 2018

Posted: Dec 17, 2018

This was the second time my wife and I have rented this wonderful condo. The first time it was just the two of us. This time our adult son joined us. Even with the additional person this unit was very comfortable. It has everything you could ask for including 3 TV's, computer and telephone. Its location right next to the pool makes it easy to take a swim without giving it much thought and requiring no preparation. The laundry room is next to the pool so if you are staying long enough to need to do a load that is also very convenient. The walk to the beach is easy and along the way you will often see rabbits in the grass. The view of the entrance to the harbor from the deck includes a lot of action from bird life to dolphins and the occasional manatee. We looking forward to returning.

Morseburg Family - Marina Villa - May 2018

Wonderful location, well-stocked with everything you need. Dolphins & manatees right in front of the unit. 5 minute walk to the beach. Very clean! Such a peaceful setting! We can’t wait to visit again!

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!!! Chris & Shelagh (UK)

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!

O'Neill Family - Marina Villa - October 2017

Posted: Dec 17, 2018

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

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.

Sitting on the screened in porch watching the boats come and go, no matter if it was sunrise or sunset it was perfect. It was a little warm but not as if I were back home. The dolphins play in the water in front of our room. It sported the most expenses boats to the paddle boards in the bay. The ocean waters were the perfect temperature and you can see the ocean floor. We would go back in a minute. Beautiful and quite.

Perfect for us, a family of four looking to relax for a few days. The accommodation was clean and comfortable, very peaceful with wonderful views - we saw dolphins from the terrace every day. The beach was just a short walk away and we appreciated the use of the beach cart, towels and floats. Some good restaurants nearby too..wish we could have stayed longer !

We have made many trips to South Seas, and I must say this place was great. We were worried about not having access to the resort pool etc, but didn't miss it at all. We enjoyed the "private" pool near the condo and had the place to ourselves most of the week. The unit was far nicer than those offered by the resort, and the view can't be beat. We will be back!!!!!!

Owners/managers very helpful and easy to work with - quick to respond to our questions. Have vacationed at a number of condos and this property was the perfect "home" as we explored Captiva/Sanibel, Ft Myers, and the Everglades.

We really enjoyed our stay at Marina Villa #905. We spent time at the pool and the ocean. It was a very short walk to the beach, and the use of the wheeled cart really helped and having multiple umbrellas provided was perfect for keeping us shaded. The unit itself was clean and in great condition. It was just 3 of us, but you could comfortably have 2 couples or a larger family here. We saw at least one dolphin every day from the screen porch, and also really enjoyed watching the boats come in and out. We'd definitely go back.

We just returned from our first visit to Captiva, Villa #905. It was AWESOME! The condo was clean and in the perfect location. We would watch the dolphins and manatees swimming in the marina every kids loved it (as did I)! The beach was less than a 5 minute walk. We really enjoyed the Key lime Bistro and Bubble Room restaurants on Captiva. The half day sea shell excursion through Captiva Cruises was a lot of fun. We'll definitely be back again!

The views from the end unit Marina Villa 905 are amazing. A great way to experience sea-life with dolphins and manatee swimming in the harbor inlet regularly. With the pool right out the front steps from the Villa and beach just a short 3-4 minute walk, enjoying the beautiful weather and warm gulf waters is easy to do. We had the chance to enjoy one of the many great dining options in the Village of Captiva a short drive from the Marina Villa.

This two bedroom unit is as restful and beautiful as it appears in the VRBO images. From the livingroom we have enjoyed seeing dolphins playing in the Gulf. This unit is at the far West end of Captiva Island. We have had a wonderful time on the beautiful beaches that are a 10 minute walk away. The pool is a delight. Kitchen is well equipped. The place was very clean and in great shape. Thanks for a great time.

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!

What a great visit to Captiva Island. Marina Villa #905 was located perfectly as an end condo unit. Absolutely amazing view from the back Lanai and also from the entry porch. It was very private and the pool just steps from the front door was great! Really had a relaxing stay and nothing beats watching the wildlife from the back lanai. Dolphins would swim in the inlet to the harbor regularly. Beach items towels, chairs, umbrella and beach cart were all included and was a short walk around the corner to Captiva's Amazing beach. Would definitely recommend!

Another great visit to Captiva this summer! We love staying in the Marina Villa. Every year when we arrive it feels as if we are home.

It had everything we needed inside and beach items including an umbrella, chairs, floats and boogie boards It had been more than 15 years since we visited South Seas Plantation and I was nervous about not having "resort amenities" We did not miss a thing. The pool by the Villa and the beach were all we needed. I highly recommended this location !!

My family and I spent a week at this condo. We had a great time. The weather was great. It only rained at night. The nature surrounding us was the best! The dolphins, fish, birds, turtles, shells and sunsets were remarkable. The condo was perfect. It was clean and quiet. The kitchen was easy to cook in. The gas grill was the best. The pool was clean, quiet and private. We have stayed at the South Seas resort several times and we had a better time at this condo. The only concern we had was how to work the TV. The directions were not clear. We called the help phone number and help arrived with in a short time. The TV and movie were excellent. We have no complaints and would stay at this condo again and we would recommend it to family and friends.Recommended

We came for my sons 9th birthday, he and his sister are really into Dolphins and the ad for Marina Villa said it guaranteed dolphin sightings every day. We were NOT DISAPPOINTED.

This condo exceeded my husband and I's expectations. It was a great location - loved that it was an end unit. The condo itself had all the necessary amenities. Another reviewer deemed the condo as " shabby chic" and that was a spot on description. The place was really clean and felt comfortable and homey. We spent some time on the lanai and watched the visiting dolphin make his daily rounds in the bay. That was really special. I also loved that the beach was across the street. Absolutely beautiful sunsets there! The condo owners provide beach chairs as well, so that was an added bonus. This is a great place to rent, I highly recommend it. The condo owners were always available to answer any questions and got back to me in a timely manner. I plan to rent this unit again sometime next year.

Our time spent was one of relaxation and fun! Condo was in the perfect location with a great view and watching boats come in to the Marina. Very peaceful in the evenings. Great price compared to what we would have paid directly to south seas, although we didn't have the south seas amenities, we were still able to enjoy the same beach front and had more funds to enjoy a cruise and great dinners in the village of Captiva. Highly recommend R.C Otters for Breakfast and Key Lime Bistro for Dinner. We really had everything we needed as beach towels and a beach stroller were provided. Getting to the beach was a short walk around the corner. We are already planning on returning next year.

We couldn't have been more pleased with Marina Villa 905. The arrival process was completely stress free. We had an entry code prior to arrival and walked right into an immaculate, beautifully decorated unit. We had everything we needed at our fingertips. The entire facility is beautiful and has a very safe feel. We were never without entertainment with dolphin and manatee watching every day. Also, our family loves bike riding, and almost everywhere we wanted to go was accessible by bike. It was our first time at Captiva and we fell in love with it. Additionally, this has to be one of the best units on the island. The view is amazing. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. There is so much to do. Definitely did not want to leave, but will return for sure!! My one recommendation for first time visitors to the island.... grab all your essentials (groceries for the week, etc.) before you go through the toll. There are a couple of smaller markets, but basic items are certainly p

Summer vacations are about making wonderful memories with friends and families, thats exactly what we did. We come to Captiva every summer and this was our first time staying in Marina Villa. We loved how close the T dock was to the unit. Our kids are "competitive" fisherman and love fishing at the T dock. We did have an issue with the master bedroom a/c, but both the owner and Joe at "Our Captiva" took care of the issue, thank you for your assistance with that, we truly appreciate both of you. Our 10 day stay went too quickly, but we look forward to staying there again next summer. Thank you again, see you next summer The Ewen Family.

Marina Villa was the ideal location for our family of four. The villa was well maintained, clean and well supplied.

We will be back!

My friends, family and I have stayed at Marina Villa #905 several times. Each experience has been better than the last.. The villa is attractive with a bright décor, comfortable and well equipped, especially the kitchen. We always so enjoy watching the wildlife which is abundant and the dolphins put on quite a show each day and rarely disappoint. Boats pass by coming and going from the Plantation and this year we did not even leave the island for restaurants elsewhere. Looking forward to next year! P.S. Weather was horrible most places but three weeks here were idyllic.

My husband and I enjoyed our two-week stay at Marina Villa very much. The view is fantastic, the villa is very well-equipped and nicely furnished and the property management team was INSTANTLY responsive to our few minor issues (a missing light bulb, our inability to figure out Netflix, etc.) and extremely courteous. The location could not be better for a quiet retreat. We are returning to Marina Villa next year and staying a week longer. Guess that says it all! Highly recommended.

We came to Captiva Island with our three adult children. The condo was very comfortable and clean. The owners were very accommodating and helpful whenever we called upon them. It was a perfect location, so much to do within an hours drive and also on Captiva itself. The view from the lanai was wonderful. We went to Sanibel Island many times and to Big Cypress National Preserve 2 hours away. We loved Doc Fords and Ding Darling Wildlife Sanctuary. Went biking, kayaking on Tarpon Bay, took a cruise around the islands, and a tour through Ding Darling. We would love to come back some day. We have already recommended the property to friends.

This villa was a perfect for our group, which consisted of my wife and I and two college students. The unit was clean, nicely decorated, and complete right down to the pool toys. What we enjoyed most was the view from the lanai. The wildlife was fascinating, and we enjoyed watching the yachts and smaller vessels enter and leave the marina. The beach was a short walk, but the walk we took more often was through the marina and on the edge of the sound, where we could watch the boats, birds, fish, and dolphins. We would love to return.

In addition to having the Villa's front row seats to dolphins, sunrises tand bird watching--- the experience was simply great! We are truly grateful to have enjoyed the yachts coming and going; the boys fished right outside the unit and the pool was truly just steps from the Villa's entrance. Fastest response to inquiry, listing was completely accurate, photos were spot on, the cleanest and best maintained property. Recently stayed at the best hotel in Newport, RI and found this unit cleaner and better equipped. Price can't be beat! This Villa had whimsical decor... tasteful, fun and truly tropical. Useful accessories went above and beyond other resort properties that we have stayed at; including that this villa had so many unexpected freebies, quality WiFi, Netflix and every room has HiDef TV. The owner's staff were more than cordial, extremely helpful and exceeded our highest expectations. The location was the best of all Marina Villas.

The description of the unit and the photos on VRBO were completely accurate. The unit was immaculately clean and the kitchen had everything we needed. Working with the management team of "Our Captiva" was quite pleasant and they answered any and all questions I had. Randy and Kirstin were extremely professional and made us feel very welcome. The security deposit was refunded promptly. I would most certainly use this company again and would recommend this unit. The sunsets at Captiva are spectacular. I forgot to mention that the pool is just out front of the unit. I hope you will choose to come and relax at Marina Villa #905.

MCM Family - Marina Villa - June 2014

Posted: Dec 5, 2018

We booked with a small amount of hesitation as it seemed too good to be true. We had previously always stayed at the resort, but at half the resort prices we had to try it. And there were so many super positive reviews. Pleasantly, it was much much nicer and much cleaner, better kept, even had free Netflix. The customer service was better than we had ever experienced.Truly top shelf on response and resolution. Even though certain resort amenities were not offered, for example, we couldn't use the big, busy main pool. The Marina Villa pool was right there, not loud and crowded and just a few feet from this Villa. This alternative amenities Villa turned out to be a huge benefit not a detraction. We had more family time, did more things together and no distraction from too many noisy kids at the main pool. We absolutely loved it! The view was the best we ever experienced at the resort. We watched nature at its finest, dolphins. manatees, bird life and sunrises all from the lanai.

We were at South Seas last year, through the resort and have to admit that this year was an incredible vacation at Marina Villa 905. The villa and it's amenities were perfect. The views were extraordinary and the hospitality superb! Mike, his family and everyone at Our Captiva made our vacation the most memorable! It was by far the most relaxing vacation with two young kids. Thank you and we will be definitely be back!

We enjoyed the time we spent here. It was exciting to see the dolphins and manatee every morning and watching the huge ships pull in and out of the Marina. If you are looking for an excellent place to eat, try "Lazy Flamingo" their steak sandwiches are so good we went back twice. Thanks to Mike for the recommendation. So sad to go back to 30 degree weather! Thanks for the memories.

Stayed with my husband and two little ones. We didn't use the additional amenities, as we found we didn't need to. The Marina Villa pool was so nice, but even better was the quick walk to the beach, little playground for the kids and the SHELLS! My husband is an avid bird watcher and he checked oodles of birds off his list. We went for loads of lovely long walks and bike rides. I cannot wait to return to this Villa. The owners were so accommodating and even left us a bottle of wine! The kids got up early every morning to watch the dolphins from the screened in porch that faces the water. BEST VACATION EVER!!

We had a great week at Marina Villa condo! Everything we could want was nearby: a heated pool right out the front door, dolphins cruising for fish right off the back lanai, a long quiet beach within minutes of walking, a harbor with a manatee, a pier for fishing, with pole rentals, a convenience store with things we forgot in town. The pool was specially important, since we had a cold snap close to freezing while we were there. The condo was clean and well decorated. We hope to visit you during the winter again.

Great condo-nicely decorated and the view from the enclosed porch was spectacular. Ate breakfast there every morning and cocktails there each evening. Despite a rain storm each day, we did get to see five rainbows! It was quiet here this week, perfect for enjoying the beach and relaxing. Lots of good restaurants- the Mucky Duck was so good we went there twice!

Location, location, location!! Beautiful surroundings with endless views of pure tranquility. We had an excellent time enjoying our own "private beach". We have been to South Seas multiple times, but first time we stayed at the Marina. Condo was well decorated and clean. Everyone was extremely accommodating and easy to work with who were associated with our rental. After a week of absolute decompressing, getting back to reality is a whole lot more enjoyable!

The crazy canucks that we are; we drove over 2300 Km to get to Captiva Island and all I can tell you is that it was worth it. The view from this condo was spectacular. We saw plenty of dolphins, osprey, ducks and snook under the docks. There was constantly something to see. We can even forget the speeding ticket dad got on Sanibel heading to a fishing trip. The Island of Captiva was simply gorgeous. We will definitely be back next year.

Every year we come to Captiva, we hope our holiday here will surpass the previous one, every year it happens, and our stay in Marina Villa here has played no small part in that, our third time in South Seas and this villa has given us the best stay we've had- the best views of wildlife in and around the Marina, the birds (Osprey, Pelican, Heron, Egret, kingfisher....) close encounters with the dolphins feeding along the wall. These are just a few. The villa has everything we need and more. We hope to be back in 2014.

We had a great time here at South Seas Resort! The view of this room is amazing- it was awesome to wake up and see dolphins and manatees out our back window! We also really loved that the pool was heated, it really came in handy on cold days! We collected many conch shells on Sunset Beach, ate ice cream, swam in the pool and much more! Everything here was absolutely amazing. A total Island Paradise. We are so sad to leave! P.S We recommend watching the sunset at Sunset Beach-take lots of pictures!!!

I must say that South Seas is one of the most beautiful places that we have visited! Being able to watch the boats come and go is a real treat. We learned so much about the local birds this week.
