"We stayed in this unit on our girls beach trip last month. The unit is beautiful and the views of the 10,000 Islands are breathtaking. We loved having the pools to ourselves and the privacy this property provided. We were looking for a quiet retreat and it met all our needs. I hope to stay there again!"

"We have just spent 2 weeks in this wonderful condo. It is perfectly sized for two people and there is everything you could need. When we arrived, the owner's Mum met us and showed us round, explaining everything. This was a very nice personal touch which we appreciated after a long journey. The unit is spotlessly clean, everything works efficiently but obviously the best thing of all is the fantastic patio with views of the Gulf. Fabulous! We used the excellent pool every day and really enjoyed the tennis courts. Being from Europe we expected to have to reserve our slot (and pay!) for the tennis court but there was none of that. We never saw anyone else playing.
Marco Island is quite busy but that means there are plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from. We had some excellent meals and met some friendly people. We will definitely go back."

"Our family of seven rented this unit and had a wonderful time! The unit has everything you need to make your vacation enjoyable. Clean, updated, stocked kitchen, beautiful bathrooms and furnishings. Our time on the beach was spent finding seastars, shells, and fishing. We throughly enjoyed our stay and can't wait to come back!"

"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.
