Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4), 9th floor, corner unit

Awesome Apollo says it all. This beautiful recently remodeled condo with new carpet, new sofa-sleeper, new linens and furnishings and furniture is located directly overlooking Marco Island's beautiful beach on the southern (quiet ) tip of the island. Since we handle our own rentals, we can rent our condo at the lowest rates available. Our condo is a corner unit on the 9th floor of a ten story building. It offer a fantastic view of the beach directly in front. It also has a great view to the the south of Cape Marco. It has a full length mirrored wall that reflects the Gulf. The new carpeting in the living room and bedroom gives it a much warmer feeling. Most other Apollo units have tile floors. The balcony offers a spectacular view of the Gulf and beach. We love to simply sit on the balcony and watch all the beachcombers and other exciting beach activities. We especially love to watch the beautiful sunsets from the balcony. We also enjoy lunch and breakfast from the balcony.

The Apollo offers great facilities including a casual restaurant and bar with outdoor seating open from 11:00 am to 10:00 pm daily. It has an elegant lobby, on the premises security, lovely landscaped grounds, a heated swimming pool, hot tub, tennis courts, sauna room, fitness center with showers and covered parking. There is direct beach access right in front of the Apollo.

Marco Island is famous for its beautiful noncongested boulevards, no over-commercialization, and fantastic clean sandy beaches. It is indeed a vacation paradise. We and our repeat rentors just love it here. You will too.

About Harriett Toxopeus

Harriett Toxopeus is the owner of Awesome Apollo. It is managed by her daughter Sandy Toxopeus.

They have spent their winters in a double-wide home in Goodland, FL only seven miles from Apollo. They have also spend selected weeks in their lovely Apollo condo. The late Fred Toxopeus retired after teaching mathematics for fifty years in High Schools and a community College. Harriett is retired after working as a dental receptionist and bank manager for several years. They have three grown children and six grandchildren and two adorable great grandchildren.

Harriett Toxopeus purchased this condo in 2003

Why Harriett Toxopeus chose Marco Island

They had vacationed at Eagle's Nest with friends in Marco and loved it. The next year they rented a unit in Apollo and liked it even better. They decided to buy a unit to rent out and also to use it themselves.

What makes this condo unique

The condo is fully furnished with new furniture and with many pots, pans, and other cooking items. Harriett is a gourmet cook and has every item you need. There is a nice restaurant, bar called Sunset Grill in the Apollo which is very convenient.. The big attraction is the balcony overlooking the beach. One can watch beautiful sunsets and also Dolphins frolicking in the water.

Hurricane Irma didn't stop us. Marco is as beautiful as ever! Sept 30- Oct 14..

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th time renting from Harriet and everything was as relaxing as ever. The island was up and running with just a few bumps and bruises but the condo was unharmed.

The view from the deck was beautiful and the dolphins were plentiful. Every morning they swam close to shore. Nothing better than drinking coffee and watching dolphins play!

Harriet/Sandy are awesome. Very responsive.

We had no issues with cable/ Wi-Fi and the pool was up and running..

If you enjoying waking up everyday to a front row to the Gulf then don't hesitate and book with Harriet.. It doesn't get any better..

We would return

  • 5 of 5

My wife & I really enjoyed our stay at the condo. My wife really enjoyed the shells that she found on the beach - there were millions!! The condo is a bit dated but very comfortable for a couple. The premises are very quiet, clean & well maintained with friendly management. The beach is very close & the swimming is excellent with a very sandy bottom. The condo had everything we needed including beach chairs & towels. The owners were very prompt to answer my questions & a problem with the WIFI was straightened out. We loved Marco Island and this condo. Would we come back? YES!!

Enjoyed every minute....

  • 5 of 5

This was are 4th time visiting Marco Island. We have previously stayed at the Marriott Marco Island Island. We have been to the restaurant Sunset Grille which is at The Apollo so we knew exactly where we would be staying. The condo was very nice... It is right on the gulf and the views are fantastic..It is as said a 1 bedroom with sofa bed, so size is limited..Fred was very nice to deal with and efficient.. He responded to my emails quickly...

Marco is beautiful... The Sunset Grille has excellent food and an outside bar where you can sit with a cocktail and watch the sunset daily... There are many great restaurants in the area..

Thank you Fred ! We had a wonderful time and will return again...
