“Nice, clean condo”
Reviewed January 16, 2009

We were happy with the condition of our condo and the cleanliness of the amenities in general. We loved the views from our condo a corner unit that gave you 180 degree views of the gulf and surrounding area. The lanai was large enough to accomodate 8 people with 2 tables and 8 chairs. I was also surprised that the building doesn't have any outdoor grills. I would caution people with children that this area is not particularly kid friendly. Also when leaving I asked the condo office if I could print out boarding passes and was charged $4 for printing 4 sheets, hmmm. All in all even though it is a older building our unit was nicely maintained. I would caution people to question owners when renting if their unit has been recently updated as not all units are equal.

The SeaWinds of Marco is a 17 Story Condominium located on the south part of the Island. This was our first time ever staying at the SeaWinds and I was a bit scared because I was used to staying at some of the newer hotels on Marco rather than on an older condo. All the things I worried about were totally the opposite. This place is so beautifully taken care of. The lobby, the parking lot, the pool, and even the elevators. Everything is well maintained by the Condo - Association. We rented through a company called Charde Rental for one week. We really enjoyed it. We had beautiful views of the ocean from the 15th floor. It's great! If you stay here, you will find it very relaxing.

  • Liked — It's location!
  • Disliked — Marco Island is very quiet and there is not much to do on the island.

My husband and I just returned from a week at the Seawinds. We were very impressed and will definitely go back. It is true that there are a lot of gates and locks, but I view this as a good thing!! We felt very safe and secure during our stay. Our condo was clean and well supplied with everything that we needed. The view from our balcony of the Gulf of Mexico was priceless. It is the first time that we had stayed at a beachfront condo, and it certainly spoiled us for anything else!! The pool was very nice, but I spent most of my time at the beach since the water was 85 degrees. Parking is very convenient, and the staff was very friendly. I can't wait to return for another stay!!

Seawinds is not a hotel. It is a 16 floor building of individual condominiums. It does not have a hotel staff. There is an office, with a building manager who is on duty from 8AM to 4 PM, Monday through Friday only. At night and weekends there is only a security guard. Each apartment is indvidually owned, individually decorated and furnished and individually maintained by its owner. There is no hotel style room service. The renter does the daily care. Those apartments that are rented to vacationers are rented either by real estate companies on Marco or by contacting the individual owner directly. There are 900 sq. foot units and 1100 sq. foot units. All have two bedrooms. The difference is in room size. All have terraces facing the beach. The beach is beautiful, like all of Marco, but the building does not provide beach chairs or huts. The individual unit owner may provide chairs for the beach. The pool and inground hot tub are beautiful, with plenty of lounges and chairs at no charge. The building is excepionally well maintained, landscaped and clean, public areas beautifully decorated. There are two tennis courts with no charge for using them. The place is great for a relatively low cost Marco family vacation, but don't expect hotel service and amenities.

The complex is very well kept. The pool and hot tub are clean. The condos (we stayed in a two bedroom) are kind of small (about 900 sq ft) and don't have full size kitchens. We rented through Century 21 and they did take care of most of our issues promptly. The beach is nice if you like shelling. It is also well kept and clean.

We stayed there a year ago, and are going again 4/24.We loved the place. Excellent view - liked that it was gated-keeps out people that don't belong there. Not a place for noisey kids- mostly a mature clientele.
