"My daughter and I just spent 5 days at the Trager's condo. I travel for vacation quite a bit and have to say it was definitely one of the best vacations I have ever had. The condo is wonderful. The views from the balcony are awesome. The entire resort is very nice and the people who work there are very friendly. This was my second trip to Marco Island and I love it. I will definitely rent this condo again. It is very tastefully decorated and the cupboards and closets are stocked to the hilt with everything you would ever need. We were glad that it was a far walk to the beach because we aren't very good about utilizing an exercise room when we vacation but we got our exercise walking! Thank you to the Tragers for allowing us to rent your condo!!!"

"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.

"Craig, the owner, was very responsive and helpful with all my questions. The condo was nice, had all the amenities we needed, and had a great view. The walk to the shore line was further than expected, but no one but my wife complained. What I like about the condo and Marco Island itself was the quietness and the serenity of the place. We spent two days in Orlando and one day on the beach in Ft. Lauderdale, both of which were extremely busy with zillions of people. This condo and this part of the beach were polar opposites of those places. I would stay here again if/when we come back to Marco Island."

"This condo had everything needed for a beach getaway, from inside the place to out. Very clean, comfortable for a family of 5. Owners were easy to work with. Very nice and quiet location as well. Thanks H & M!!"
