Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: We fell in love with Marco Island 20 years ago. At the time, our 2 children were toddlers. When we crossed the bridge onto the island, we knew it was home. Eight years ago we decided it was time to purchase our second home. As veterans of the island, we knew exactly where the best part of the beach was and which buildings offered the breathtaking views, amenities and friendly residents and staff. The Royal Seafarer has always lived up to our high expectations.
As life-long Minnesotans, there's no better place on earth to escape the snow and cold for guaranteed paradise than the Royal Seafarer on Marco Island.
Why the Owner Chose Royal Seafarer: From the time we wake until the time we turn in for bed, unit 303 provides one of the most inspiring west-facing views of the gulf, beach and palm trees. Mornings are spent running the four-mile beach, eating breakfast while sipping coffee on the balcony, and planting our chairs in the sand to people watch. Afternoons we enjoy walking the beach, shelling and swimming in the warm gulf or heated pool. Evenings we often dine at one of the many fine restaurants on the island -- several within a short walk from our residence -- or drive the short distance to old Naples.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: We purchased #303 eight years ago for its spectacular views of the gulf, beach, palm trees and professionally landscaped property. The residence is inviting, comfortable, spacious and sunny. We enjoy cozying up on the love seat or sitting together on the balcony to watch the setting sun turn from red to orange to a flash of green before submerging into the gulf on the horizon. We sit for another half hour just to watch the colorful glow in the sky as the day says goodnight.
