Sea Winds of Marco
Reviewed December 22, 2013

We stayed in unit #1106 over the holidays and loved it. The condos are right on the beach and there isn't a bad view any where. This unit was a little old in style and the bathrooms were out of date, but it is an end unit and had lots of light. Great for families and the location on the island is awesome.

Room Tip: Look at photos before choosing a condo.

My parents and I stayed in unit 505 for two weeks, with my girlfriend joining us the last few days. SeaWinds may not look like much from the outside but we were very happy and comfortable and had everything we needed for a fantastic couple of weeks in the Florida sunshine. Even with the "beach renourishment" going on in front of our building we enjoyed the view, the plentiful shells on the beach, the Little Bar and Snook Inn and the farmer's market. No complaints at all that I can think of! Plenty of beach chairs & umbrellas in the storage closet by the elevators.

Let me first state that the unit itself was very nicely kept up and the owners were very responsive to issues with their unit. However that is about where my praise ends. There are a ton of rules here, that are never enforced. Our upstairs and downstairs neighbors made noise till 2a and no one did anything about it when we complained to them and to the management on site. People constantly let friends and acquaintances through the property to use the pool and beach. It was the opposite of a relaxing vacation. We could hardly sleep and ehen we finally got to sleep someone would get up and start making noise in the cooridor at 7am. We will never go back to this low income housing project again. It was the worst vacation ever.

Very nice unit on the top floor. Just renovated a short time ago. Owners, Holly and Al are great. There are 2 bathrooms but one shower connected between the 2 bathrooms. You need a key to get to the beach which is the same for all the condos on the beach so public can’t pass through. Beautiful sunset 5 of the 6 nights we were there. Beach is crescent shaped and about 4 miles long. Beach has firm sand and is great for running or walking. Many dolphins in the water on several days. This condo is on the southern end of the beach. Several restaurants in the vacinity but everything is close by, even Naples is just a short drive. The whole family loved it!

We stayed here the last week of June. We rented through VRBO. The owners were very reponsive through email. Their rental agency, Prudential, was great. No complaints from either. The unit, #906, was fantastic - exactly as described and would highly recommend. Tv's in every room with cable. Dishwasher, washer and dryer, all kitchen utensils that were needed. View from deck was amazing. The common areas were kept extremely clean. My wife and I both commented multiple times how impressed we were that they were able to keep all these areas clean in spite of all the wet people and sand that was undoubtedly tracked in. There may be other units in need of updating as this building is older, but 906 was fantastic. We liked the security with all the doors being locked. The pool was small but all really needed and was never crowded. Our teenagers enjoyed it from time to time when they were tired of sand. The grounds were very well kept up with green grass and flowers. On a fabulous section of beach. The only other condo available for weekly rentals is on the opposite end of the island and while the beach there is nice, its not as nice as the beach on this end. The only complaint I have is the parking fee they force on everyone. I think it was $25. It just seemed like a way to get a little more money from us. I don't think this is any fault of the owners or rental agency though. Also, the rental agency communicated it to us ahead of time so we would be aware of it. We would definitely stay here again. Highly recommend!!

We have been renting in Marco at Sea Winds two times per year for 5+ years. Have never had had a poor experience like this. The first warning came when we had difficulty getting in touch with the Rental Agent in order to reserve the unit... we should have moved on to the next unit and prop. mgmt. company.

We stayed there 1st week of April. The unit itself was ok, but it certainly wasn't any better than the other units we've rented, and didn't justify the rental rate. The real surprise came after we checked out. Even though cleaning is included with the total rental cost (and this unit's rent was quite high for the week at $2k total, definitely not worth it)… we typically sweep the floors, wipe off surfaces, and do as much laundry as we can before we leave. We figure the cleaning people appreciate not being tied down waiting for laundry to finish, just a nice gesture from us. We did the same thing upon checking out of this unit. When it came time for receiving our deposit back, the Management Company deducted $11. Upon further inquiry, we were told that excessive fingerprints were left on the sliding glass doors!!

Are you kidding me? Well, we do have children, but most of the prints probably came from us adults. You see, the slider in the master bedroom needed to be pulled/pushed with maximum force in order to open it from left to right. Kids couldn't even open it, and we had great difficulty. The door opened with ease from right to left, but the problem was the blinds opened left to right (as they should, since the walkway is on the left). So if we were to open the door right to left, we would then have had to contend with the mass of blinds and their pull cords. Made no sense, and this is the only unit we've rented with this kind of mismatched slider/blind configuration.

So due to THEIR flaw, WE were charged $11 for fingerprints??? How long could it have taken one to spray windex and wipe the door? You wouldn't do this anyway for the next guest?? Any time that was spent wiping the glass was more than offset by the time savings your cleaning crew realized from reduced laundering. We argued with the Agent over the charge, but supposedly upon inquiring further, he said the owner "won't budge". On eleven dollars. A totally bogus charge on an already pricey weekly rental. Talk about leaving a bad taste in the Customer's mouth.

Congratulations, Owner of #804 and Coldwell Banker (Floridamoves) you've managed to lose us as Customers for life!!!!!! We also regularly refer others to Sea Winds… you can bet we will refer them elsewhere. And we are looking to purchase in the area, you will not represent our interests for sure... hope the eleven bucks was worth it!!


** Now I see the previous reviewer had issues with the cleaning. Interesting, isn't it? By assessing bogus cleaning charges, you'd think they'd have a REALLY clean unit... NOT!!!

Room Tip: Don't select #804 for sure!

This is our fourth year staying in this particular unit. The location is spectacular. It feels like home when we arrive. Our only complaint again is people smoking on the balconies which keeps us from enjoying ours.
