Marco Beach Vacation
Marco Beach Vacation
My husband and I stayed in this unit for the month of January. The unit was beautifully decorated and had all the amentities of home. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The view from the unit was spectacular, particularily the sunsets. The building was clean and very well maintained. We really enjoyed the pool. Shops and restaurants were within walking distance. We would recommend this unit to anyone looking for a vacation in paradise.

Owner response: Thank you for the glowing recommendation Arienne. I enjoyed having you and Doug as my renters for this month as well. You are correct in saying that my unit has all the comforts of home - that is one of my goals and I am glad that you appreciated it. I would also like to add that this unit is great for other age groups as well as your recommendation for the 55+ group. Thanks again for your feedback! Linda Roon
The condo is beautiful and spacious and has everything we needed for a family vacation. The view is breathtaking. The amenities of the unit and complex exceeded our expectations. We had a fantastic time and will return over and over!!

Owner response: Glad to hear that you enjoyed our spacious unit, including the amenities we provide. This is a perk that not all other condo rentals provide. Our desire is for others to come and experience the great views of the Gulf and the comforts of home in our unit as well.
Amazing property on the beach in Marco Island!
Amazing property on the beach in Marco Island!
This property is one of the nicest I've seen in both Marco Island and Naples. Amazing panoramic views from both bedrooms and living areas. The beach was great and very easy to get to from the building. Overall amenities at the property were great. The pool and hot-tub were in much like that of a resort. The area immediately around the condo had plenty of shopping and restaurants. Short drive to Naples as well. The condo itself is beautiful with huge kitchen and updated appliances. The furnishings are again comparible to resort quality and very nicely decorated. Master bath is something you wish you could take home with you....unbelievable. Would absolutely stay there again in the future and have recommended it to friends.

Owner response: We are so happy to know that you enjoyed your stay so much at our condo #705. We greatly appreciate your comments and the time you took to provide us with feedback. We agree that the location (access to the beach and also to shopping and restaurants), the decor, and the size of the rooms are a major advantage this condo has over other condos on Marco. I would like say that even though this condo is great for Age 55+, a Girls Getaway, Tourists w/out a car, or for a Romantic Getaway, it also is great for families. The condo overlooks the pool, so if someone has children, and that child needs a nap, one parent can go upstairs and still enjoy the sun while sitting on the lanai. Also, with its close proximity to the beach, going to the beach with the kids does not have to entail an all-day event - unless you want it to! Thanks again for your comments and come stay with us soon!

Why the Owner Chose Sandcastle II:
When we started looking for a beachfront condo we could rent out, we first looked in the Florida Keys. After a week of viewing properties, we headed back to the airport. It was then that we realized that any properties we saw in The Keys were too far away from the airports. We started looking on the beaches on the Gulf of Mexico, from as far north as Clearwater to as far south as Marco Island. After chatting with a friend who has a rental in Southwest Florida, he asked if we checked out what the average temperatures were at each of our prospective beaches during the winter months. He said people would be more likely to get in the ocean and enjoy the vacation when it was 72 degrees vs. 67 degrees. This narrowed our search to the Naples/Bonita Beach area and south. After viewing condos on the Naples’ beaches and the Bonita Springs’ beaches, we went to see properties on Marco Island. Once we drove over the SS Jolley Bridge onto Marco Island, we knew this was the place to be! Immediately, we felt more relaxed and at home, while entering Paradise and the beauty of the Island. With another friend/realtor, we visited several properties and she helped us with local feedback as well. We were told that the complex, Sandcastle II, was one of the premier properties on the beach because of the size of the swimming pool and the grounds. This pool is the largest of the pools on the island, except for the resorts. The grounds are beautifully maintained with lush, green space around the building instead of having another building immediately outside of your window. The building to the immediate north (The Charter Club timeshare) is set back from the beach. The building to the immediate south (Sandcastle I) is located further away from Sandcastle II and thus, our building is able to take advantage of the green, lush areas between the two buildings. The owners and other guests are very welcoming and friendly, which is not often found in other condos on Marco Island.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
This condo has private, secure access to the beach. This condo has a more direct view of the Gulf of Mexico than other listings in Sandcastle II that have wrap-around balconies. This condo, with its south exposure, is quieter than other listings in Sandcastle II with a north exposure, which are above the loading dock and the dumpster. Also, across the street from the condo is The Marco Walk, which has a dine-in movie theatre, several restaurants, such as DaVinci’s, Nacho Mama’s, Cathy O’Clark’s Irish Pub, and Capt. Brien’s Fish House with Off-The-Hook Comedy Club. There are local shops in addition to national shops, like Chico’s. There are several nail boutiques and spas here too. There are coffee shops and ice cream shops as well. There are many restaurants located on the beach that you may walk to. On Marco Island, there are several favorite past times. Two of most popular ones are the “Marco Stoop” (people stooped over looking for shells) and the morning beach exercise. There is a hard-packed path great for walkers or runners. The condo also has access to parking in the parking areas bordering the garage.
