"We spent a wonderful week at this beautiful home! The home is very spacious with the master bedroom, large bath and walk-in closet on one end and the other bedrooms on the other. The home is very clean and they supplied everything we needed. The owners were very accommodating with our every need. We would definitely recommend this home! Thanks Bill!"

"My wife and I enjoyed the serenely quiet and accessible Marco Island area from this brilliantly located and well equipped condo. Bikes were available, the pool, beach within 5 minute walk literally across the road! The sunsets were like nothing we've experienced and since we prefer low-key low touristy destinations, this was a "re-charge our batteries" type break. Everything we needed was at this cute ground floor condo with all the beach chairs etc on hand. Thanks again for a fantastic, trouble free stay and for keeping such a beautiful place so charming and stylish! Cooking from "home" was one of our highlights using fresh seafood produce from a fishmonger we spotted during our casual cycling ride."

"My wife and I were looking for a special property for our March 2015 "Snowbird" escape from Chicago weather and we hit the jackpot. Steve's Pier 81 penthouse is exceptional!
About Marco: If you are not already sold on Marco, you will be amazed. Compared to Naples: Marco has MUCH less traffic; MUCH younger, vibrant residents; MUCH better beaches; MUCH better restaurants on the water; MANY more fun events (e.g., great farmer’s market every Wednesday, art fairs every weekend). Marco also is very water/boat oriented offering MANY more alternatives for boat rentals and charters. (We didn’t know any of this before our vacation but are now big Marco fans…)
Now the condo:
Location: PERFECT -Walk to at least eight fun restaurants. Going north: Marek’s (100 yds away in the old Collier house), Café de Marco (Don’t miss the HUGE butterflied shrimp), Bistro Soliel (great French), Petite Soliel (great breakfast/brunch), and finally the famous Snook Inn (see and be seen in the classic Marco hang-out with live music every night). Going south: Arturo’s (Italian); The tiki hut at Rose Marina (lobster); Porky’s (live music every night); more if you keep walking. In addition, the island is small and easy to get around so some restaurants will pick you up and take you home.
The view: SPECTACULAR - A photographer’s dream. Every morning we were up at sunrise on the east balcony, camera on tripod, coffee in hand, taking SPECTACULAR pictures of the sun rising over the Marco bridge with the golden glow reflecting from the water in the bay below. Every evening we sat on the west balcony, camera on tripod, wine glass in hand, taking SPECTACULAR pictures as the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico. Best of all, on the week of the full moon, every night we sat on the east balcony, camera on tripod, after dinner beverage in hand, taking SPECTACULAR pictures of the golden glow of the moon rising over the Marco bridge and moonlight shimmering on the bay as the Marco Island Princess dinner boat cruised the waters. We have equally SPECTACULAR pictures of the HUGE pelicans that frequently fly 4 ft from the balcony railing and the beautiful Osprey as they fly in the same airspace.
Furnishings: ELEGANT AND COMFORTABLE -Everything we needed to make our vacation special.
The condo: HUGE -The master bedroom is giant and the master bath is literally larger than entire condos we have rented in the past.
The Owner: Steve is a great guy and genuinely cared about us.

"This was a very nice home! I did not go to the beaches or else where we used it as a stay over waiting on our new home to be ready. It was not good for my handicapped father but otherwise it was a very very nice home. Get an exterminator! Too many ads on the counters for me."
