"The condo was clean and well-stocked. It was nice having all the beach supplies available. Private access to the beach was convenient and close by. The heated pool was wonderful after a day on the beach. Although the condo isn't on the beach, the location was excellent with restaurants and shops easily within walking distance. Saw many beautiful sunsets from our balcony. Camille was pleasant and responded promptly to our calls and e-mails."

"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.

"Out of all of the places I have ever rented in Florida , this has to be the absolute best! When we weren't at the beach we were in the pool or on the Teenis court .there was always something fun to do. I do recommend this house to others . It comes with everything . Literally.From spices to plates , forks , and knifes this place had it all . It's also very kid friendly , my 3 year old granddaughter enjoyed the pool very much and if you enjoy sports there also a basketball goal on the teenis court .my friends went with us and it was there first time in Florida and they fell in love with the place. The house also included hot tube and some bikes. I can't wait to go to Florida again , this place was definitely worth my money."

"My wife and I had a great time. The Condo is roomy and offers a great view of the ocean. The beds are very comfortable and the place is kept up. The workout room downstairs has a good amount of work-out equipment. There are plenty of beach chairs, umbrellas and toys to take with you to the beach as well. The grounds of the complex are well kept. The condo owner also responded in a timely manner to any questions that I had before our arrival. Grocery stores and shops are near by. This is a great place to stay at."
