Apollo condo description
A leading rental agent manages our very popular apartment, but please e-mail the owner first. Our charming and well-maintained condo with its spectacular views is very popular with couples. Many return repeatedly to our cherished holiday home.
This is a standard Apollo apartment which takes four people but we restrict occupation to two to add comfort and reduce wear and tear and so can offer low rental rates.
Sleep in the new Sealy Posturepedic king-size bed in a delightfully furnished bedroom with wall-mounted flat sceen TV. Relax on cushioned recliners and cushioned dining chairs on our private double size beachfront balcony with its sunset viewing chairs, dining table and tilting umbrella. In the tiled and mirrored living area, enjoy a recently refurbished, small but well-equipped and screened kitchen (with recently renewed appliances and granite worktop) quality china, new queen sofa bed and rocking armchairs, numerous books, iPod speaker, 46 inch LED TV with HD cable/blu-ray, and DVD player + DVDs.
The apartment has good linens and Ralph Lauren towels. There is an answering machine and free broadband connection (WiFi & Ethernet).
The well-kept complex has air-conditioning, lifts, laundry facilities, a swimming pool, hot tub, tennis courts, security and covered parking. A local rental company takes care of you throughout your stay.Free exit clean.
The beach is fairly firm for walking, consisting of tiny fragments of shell. Shelling and beach walking are popular pastimes. A wide variety of sports is close at hand.
Marco Beach is a place to fall in love with. From the condo you look out on to a fabulous three and a half mile beach with access via a boardwalk over protected seagrass. There are pelicans and seabirds flying around, dolphins make their lazy way across the bay and in season turtles come ashore in the moonlight to lay their eggs, The sunsets are spectacular as the building faces West and the condo balcony offers sunset viewing chairs.
The island is about 6 miles by 4 miles, accessed by two bridges. It is relaxed and charming with plenty of amenities (supermarkets, restaurants, shops, urgent care center, medical facilities etc). It is sufficiently far south to offer a wonderful climate and year-round sunshine. It is about 20 minutes from Naples which is a charming, sophisticated and affluent town, with shopping malls, hospitals etc. The Everglades are very close to the island and can be explored easily as can a number of nature reserves. Day trips to Key West are also possible. There are numerous golf courses within easy driving distance of the Apollo and the whole area is a golfer's paradise. Fishermen and those who enjoy boating love the island.
We have owned our condominium from the time it was built and have given service to the condominium residents' Board. It is a well-kept building with a friendly atmosphere. Security is given high priority and there is a rolling program of maintenance which keeps standards up. There is a manager's office on site. There is also a privately owned restaurant in the complex. The location is spectacular and there is no road between the building and the beach, just protected sea grass with a board walk out to the beach.

- Marco Island is the biggest of the 10,000 islands in the Everglades area. It connects to the mainland by two bridges, and once over either bridge, you feel yourself entering a beautiful, peaceful, island paradise.. There are golf courses aplenty on the mainland and sophisticated Naples is a short drive away. Fort Myers Airport is about 1 hr away and Miami Airport is about 2 hrs away. There are 2 million acres of unspoiled land on the mainland including numerous nature sanctuaries like Everglades National Park, Rookery Bay, Audubon Corkscrew Swamp and Big Cypress National Preserve. It is possible to fly or sail to Key West for a day trip if desired....moreless

Breathtaking!Guest comment entered by manager
Posted on Trip Advisor We found this place on VRBO and we are so glad we did. This place has everything you can think of in a vacation rental location. Beautiful white sand beaches to blue water. Tons and tons of sea shells for you picking. Security here at the condo makes you feel very safe. We have never felt so welcomed before. Marco Island has it all from grocery stores to small boutiques to sovereign shops. Our stay was relaxing and we will forever have the best memories. I HIGHLY recommend this condo for your next vacation. We stayed in #209 and the balconies are bigger on the second floor just fyi.

My husband & I was looking for a romantic place to go for our ten year wedding anniversary and I stumbled on this place. It was the only week that was available for the dates we were interested. We arrived really early on the morning just as the sun was rising and it was breathtaking from that moment on. The king size bed was wonderful and plenty of room to move around. The bathroom was fully stocked of all the linens that were needed for the week. The kitchen had all you needed from coffee pot to blender to toaster. The place was just a cozy home away from home. Oh and the balcony was a place you wanted to be every morning & evening. It had as much room as a small bedroom. The view was amazing. My husband & I only stayed in the condo to sleep and enjoy the beautiful view. There is a bar & grill down stairs called the Sunset Grill. Great place because you can just walk from the beach grab a drink and off back to the beach. The pool & hot tub came in handy after our long drive from Fort Worth Texas. Everything was well maintained including the whole island. We have never been so impressed with a vacation rental location. The beach had millions of sea shells that we brought back a grocery bag full home. Beautiful white sand beaches. The only bad thing was the sea turtles were nesting and hatching and we were kicked out of the pool @ 9 as well as the beach but I totally understand why. This location has all you need and more. Everything was close & priced reasonably. It was like being on your own private resort island. The time frame we requested was also the islands down time but to us it was perfect because it was not busy and that is what we were looking for. Thank you so much for letting us be apart of your wonderful condo.

Hope to return
Unsolicited e-mail: "Once again we would like to thank you for renting us Apollo 209 during January. We had a very relaxing time walking along the beach and spending many hours in Caxambas State Park. The weather for the majority of the holiday was about 10 degrees F above the normal. Indeed on one day the temperature was at a record high for the time of year of 86 degrees F. We hope to return to Marco Island and will contact you later in the year. Thank you once again."

The unit waswell equipped, comfortable and as promised a great time. the weather held out to be just beautiful , and all the eateries were all good. The island was just the right size to explore . This was the first visit for us to Marco Island , as we vacationed in the Clearwater/ Hudson Florida region for many years, this address just is more enjoyable and has the feel of real Florida.. You will like this condo.....

About: We fell in love with Marco Island on our first visit and immediately placed a deposit on an Apollo apartment. We have never wavered in our love for Marco and the Apollo. We are a British married couple and love to escape to the 'Paradise Island' that is Marco. Days stretch out to a proper length instead of flying past and the island rhythm of life is soothing.
We love the location and the building with its facilities.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The relaxing atmosphere of Marco island and the wonderful location of the Apollo with its beach access, security, covered parking, sports facilities etc.
