"We vacation in Marco Island at least twice a year - and our 4th stay at Marco Beach Ocean Resort. The condo was wonderful and the resort was as beautiful as ever. The beach rental staff were terrific and very helpful. Unfortunately the elevator in the parking garage was out of service which made getting our belongings from the car to the room a little difficult and there is no luggage cart. Also recommend bringing toilet paper and Kleenex as there was none in the condo (luckily there's a market/gas station within walking distance). Looking forward to our next visit."

"This was our 5th visit to Marco island and The Apollo. We were very comfortable in this condo. Everything was exactly as described-no surprises. Which is what you want for your one week at the beach. That being said were surprised at how comfortable the bed was! We enjoyed the magnificent view and found solace in this well appointed retreat."

"My wife and I have never been to Marco Island. We didn't have high expectations for the island or the house, we were just looking forward to 2 weeks of relaxation and to escape the cold. Marco Island was great and so was the house! We like to travel and don't like to go back to the same places because there are so many places we haven't been. Put it this way, we plan on going back to Marco Island and staying in the exact house within the next year again. It was that great of an experience. We rode the bikes that were furnished(free) everywhere and just had the best time enjoying putt putt, golf, going to the movies, nice dinners you name it!"

"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.
