"We Just returned from our first vacation in Marco Island and we couldn't have had a better time. The unit was exactly as described and shown in pictures and reviews. Clean, comfortable, nicely upgraded and spacious. The storage locker by the elevator had an abundance of beach supplies- cooler, umbrellas, floats, sand toys. We read all the reviews before we came, which I think was very helpful in setting expectations and getting some great food recommendations. The unit had a nice kitchen with microwave, full fridge, pots, pans, plates, etc. plenty of towels, hairdryer, iron, etc. the only thing we had to buy was toilet paper because housekeeping left a note that they only supply one roll per bathroom which wasn't enough for our family of five for a week. But we went to the store to grab some food to have breakfast, lunches in the condo so it wasn't a big deal. I'm mentioning it here because I know some might expect to have that covered and all the other reviews we read were so helpful in preparing us for what to do, pack, etc. The unit is a corner unit with amazing views of the beach, sunsets, etc. An elevator ride down and a short walk down a ramp and you're on the beach. Beautiful white sand and the most amazing shelling. We saw Dolphins both in the early am and at a few sunsets, which was a big hit with our three young kids. I feel like everywhere we went was just a short 5 min drive away. Some of our favorites were Hoots for breakfast, (have to try the French toast, best I've ever had), Mango's Dockside Grill, Marco island fish company, and Snook Inn. For a yummy casual lunch, definitely stop at Kirk's Coney Island. Kirk is super laid back, welcoming and he played a few songs for my kids which was a big hit. We felt this property was an amazing deal for such a great location in Marco island. We'll definitely come back here if we return to Marco Island for a future vacation. And lastly, Highly recommend this time of year. It's the off season so the Island was not crowded at all. Very hot, but we spent most days at the beach or in the pool so you didn't feel the heat as much."
