Property 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, 48 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:
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.

Marco Island:
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.

The Apollo:
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.

South Marco

Car: Recommended

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.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1990

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. Pelicans fly overhead, turtles lay their nests on the beach and dolphins make their slow way up and down the length of the beach.

Why Apollo:
We love the location and the building with its facilities. Our extra large balcony is a huge plus - enough room for cushioned recliners and side tables, dining table and umbrella and comfortable dining chairs, also sunset viewing chairs.

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, tennis courts,pool and hot tub, exercise room etc.
