"We have recently arrived home in the UK after a wonderful stay in this lovely apartment. We have previously visited Marco a number of times over the last 15 years, always staying in houses, so to stay in an apartment was a new experience for us. Prior to our arrival (and following our departure) Cheryl couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful, giving us every confidence that we had made a good choice. We arrived bleary-eyed from the UK in the early hours of the morning, only pausing briefly to take in the lights of Marco before heading to bed. The following morning we awoke to a typically clear and sunny Marco August morning and the view just took our breath away - both out over the beach, lagoon and sea, and back over the island towards the Everglades - a view that really does make you realize just how flat this part of the world is!!! The apartment is extremely comfortable and well equipped (one tiny thing - as Brits, a kettle for boiling water for tea would be nice) and suited us perfectly (family of 4, 2 boys, 20 & 17). The communal pool is well kept and a nice place to be (with tikki huts to retire under if the sun/heat gets too much). We enjoyed near-daily walks along Tigertail beach, often with dolphins for company, where I enjoyed photographing the prolific bird-life. We quickly recognised that the big benefit of an apartment over a house is the immediate access to the beach - if you fancy a quick dip in the sea, or 30 minutes or so of fishing, its so easy - no need to get in a car, just take the lift down, walk past the pool, over the board-walk and you are at the waters edge in less than 5 minutes. We spent several evenings in, sitting on the balcony with a drink, watching the sun dip into the Gulf, painting the sky with brilliant reds and oranges as it went. As you have probably realised, we are smitten, and wouldn't hesitate to return to this well maintained and lovely apartment."
