Recent Marco Island reviews

  • Everything expected and more!

    "This condo was perfect for our family of 5. Our kids are 20, 17 and 16. We went to Marco Island for rest and relaxation for the entire family, so extra activities weren't necessary! This condo was perfect, the decor was very welcoming. This unit had everything necessary from the kitchen to the bath. It was a huge plus having towels and all linens provided, not to mention beach chairs and umbrella. We did purchase a few extra chairs and left them for others to use. We had a short walk to the beach with easy access. We ventured out for dinner every night, the restaurants included the Sunset Grill, The Snook Inn, Dolphin Tiki Bar, Quinn's (Marriott) and Marco Prime. Since the Sunset Grill was directly across the street, we did go there more than once, food and drinks were fabulous plus a great view of the sunset. For breakfast, we found Doreen's Cup of Joe! Beebe's Ice cream and Putt Putt were also on the list of likes! As for the owners of this unit, they were extremely easy to work with from the original rental agreement to the return of our deposit. They responded to any questions we had our trip very quickly. Like the previous review on this unit...there was no internet connection in the unit but that was corrected after our stay. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone looking for a place to vacation on the south end of Marco Island."

  • Perfect Place

    "This apartment has it all. Everything you could possibly need is in the unit. Great views. Great location on the beach. The condo building next door has a good restaurant. Friendly staff who even printed our boarding passes for us. The apartment is just the right size. Will stay here again the next time we visit Marco. Very clean."

  • Best unit in Sea Winds

    "We have stayed in 7+ units in Sea Winds and this was by far the best. Well-equipped, well furnished, nicely updated. End unit location can't be beat!"

  • Perfection!!!

    "What a wonderful time I had during my long stay at your condo. Your condo is beautifully furnished with everything from extremely comfortable beds, Plenty of thick towels,very large Master bathroom with a big walk-in shower (very important to me), modern kitchen appliances and every gadget needed and imagined if you choose to prepare elaborate meals. Personally I prefer to visit all the restaurants, many on the water are in walking distance from the condo. The view of the Gulf from every window in your place was my first priority for staying at a beachfront location in Marco. Sitting on the terrace with a glass of wine watching the sunset is just perfection in life. Also, I much appreciated your tips finding the best source for each sporting activity I wanted to try. Certainly making arrangements with you for my long stay couldn't have been easier and more efficient. I have been raving nonstop talking to my friends about my success in finding just the right condo to enjoy all that Marco Island has to offer. Can't wait to return!"

Marco Island Travel Tips

Marco Island can be found in the Gulf of Mexico and is the biggest of Florida's "Ten Thousand Islands". With white, sandy beaches and a laid-back atmosphere, relaxation is certainly the name of the game. Enjoy the seemingly endless sunshine while you swim with dolphins, work on your tan, try some water sports or stroll the streets perusing shop windows.

The island itself is small, just 6 miles by 4 miles, but there's tons to do here. Marco Island boasts an excellent restaurant scene where you can sample fresh seafood and other local favorites in between exploring the natural scenery and checking out cultural attractions.

Things to Do on Marco Island

Dolphin Explorer: Dolphin and marine life lovers will certainly want to take a trip on the Dolphin Explorer, a 30-foot catamaran that can carry up to 28 passengers. This boat allows scientists and visitors to the island to get up close and personal with the Gulf's aquatic life. The Dolphin Explorer is used as part of a study called the Ten Thousand Island Dolphin Project looking at the movement, association patterns and behavior of Southwest Florida's bottlenose dolphins. Be part of the action with a trip out on the catamaran and be sure to bring your camera!

Marco Island Historical Museum: If you're hoping to find out about the history of Marco Island, look no further than the Marco Island Historical Museum where you can travel back more than one million years through various exhibits. Learn about the Calusa Indian tribe, the pioneer settlement and development on the island over the years. Peruse the photography, artifacts and more as you stroll through the space and gain a better understanding of what made Marco Island what it is today.

Marco Island Center for the Arts: Experience the culture of the area at the Marco Island Center for the Arts, which provides not only galleries and exhibits, but also offers lectures, classes, workshops and special events. The galleries change monthly and feature works from Floridian artists in a variety of mediums, including painting, sculpture and more. Currently the theme is Planes, Trains and Automobiles, and past galleries include Salon de Garage, Gold Madness, Fun and Funk Teapots and Picture the Music.

South Marco and Tigertail Beaches: Spending time on the local beaches is a must here, and South Marco Beach is an excellent option as it's one of two public beaches on the island. Here you'll find an acre of sandy shores dotted with lovely sabal palm trees, creating a true island feel. It's a great place if you're looking to collect seashells or want to take a swim. Tigertail is the more popular of the two beaches, as it features extra amenities including restrooms and a full-service snack bar. Tigertail is located on a lagoon so the water here is pretty shallow, making it excellent for families with smaller kids. Find the perfect spot of sand to stretch out your beach towel or take advantage of the beach chair and umbrella rentals. Whether you're swimming, sunbathing, catching up on reading or throwing a Frisbee, you'll have a great time. When you need a break from the sun, check out the adjacent butterfly gardens and children's playgrounds.There are even grills and picnic tables for a tasty lunch break.

Dining on Marco Island

Snook Inn: For more than 30 years, Snook Inn has been serving up delicious food while patrons enjoy true waterfront dining. You can drive in by boat or car as this casual eatery offers parking for both. Snook Inn is open seven days a week and on any given day you can enjoy live entertainment while sampling the mahi mahi, fried oysters, deep sea scallops, old-fashioned Reuben, barbecue pork sandwich and specialty drinks.

Sale e Pepe: For a more upscale dining experience, make a reservation at Sale e Pepe for some exquisite gourmet Italian fare. You'll feel like you've traveled to Italy once you step into the dining room outfitted with marble floors, hand-painted frescoes and aged stones. Chef Giuliano Matarese and his team cook everything from scratch every day. Try the pasta options, sea bass, rack of lamb or filet mignon, and be sure to pair it with a delicious wine. While it'll be easy to stuff yourself on the unbeatable main course, be sure to save room for dessert like chocolate mousse, tiramisu cheesecake or homemade gelato.
