“Unit 805”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

We really enjoyed our stay. The building does a good job keeping the place clean with so many people tracking sand in, we never saw any sand, garbage, anything anywhere. The pool area was clean although it was pretty quiet as most people seem to prefer the beach. The elevators are pretty fast. A nice touch was the books in the lobby, people seem to leave/borrow books, nice!
We stayed in unit 805. The decor seemed to have been recently updated. The unit is bright. Although there is no granite or stainless everything is clean and works well. The things I felt need addressing were: the TV - it's time for HDTV please, and the beds - the master is so lumpy and the twins squeak and kept my kids awake.
The unit had all kinds of kitchen stuff - lots of dishes, of pots and pans, a cork screw, there were plenty of towels - both beach and bath and they were of very good quality. The beach chairs were Tommy Bahama - very nice! and there were 5-6 of them, I think there were a few beach pails but we didn't use those. The patio furniture was very nice and we enjoyed eating there and watching the sunsets every evening. We had issues with noise from unit 906 one evening and the management said they would speak to them (and they said if it continued we should call 911 - seriously??)but it continued until we spoke to them ourselves the next night - they were dragging furniture and it carries with tile flooring so they don't have to be directly above you to drive you nuts! They were renters so it is just the luck of the draw - some people are just rude and inconsiderate!

Room Tip: End units (01-06) have more square feet but there are not sliding doors/balconies off master bedroom...

The sea winds was a great and comfortable the pool was so warm because it had a heater. It was very safe because you will need a key to get into almost everything. That was a little weird and confusing. My family lost the main key but thank god they give you two. But it was still hard to get through the doors and gates. The hot tub was very nice and warm but they could clean it more. The beach was so Shelly I had to wear flip flops but it was worth it because the beach is beautiful there was kayak, paddleboards sailboats and jetski rentals down the beach. Also there was an awesome slushi place next to the rentals. Very nice people and environment. I would go their again!

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!!
