South Seas Island Resort, Florida

With scenic views of the distant Mexican Gulf, this elegant island getaway is the perfect place to unwind. If it’s secluded private beaches and relaxation you crave then leave the daily grind behind and hole up in one of the beach front cottages. Get inquisitive and explore the 330 acre wildlife preserve and two and a half miles of picture-perfect beaches. You never know, you may find yourself up close and cozy with a bottle nose dolphin or Cuban Anole Lizard.


The seclusion of Captiva Island is only 35 miles from South West Florida International Airport. Fort Myers town where culture vultures, shopaholics and night owls will all find themselves entertained is a short hour’s drive from the resort. Getting around South Seas is as easy as hopping on two wheels and pedalling. Can you feel the sea breeze tousling your hair already?

Your Room

On your private balcony watch the comings and goings of the yachts as they set the leisurely pace for your break. With a modern American feel, you’ll find everything you need in your spacious room and more besides. Elegant  granite counters in the bathroom? Check. Fridge and coffee maker? Check. Prefer a little more space? With the white sandy beach a mere 50 yards away, South Seas’ Beach Cottages are the perfect hideaway. Nestled in the dunes, you’ll find your home away from home. You can even fire up the barbecue and eat poolside while the sun sets.

Why we like it

There’s a vast choice of rented accommodation on offer at South Seas and in each you’ll find a generous kitchen where you can cook up a feast. But we reckon vacation shouldn’t be about slaving over a stove. We love the choice of restaurants in the resort. What could be better than ending a day sipping a cocktail and watching the sun go down before tucking into a hearty Caribbean grille?
