Guestbook comments from the owner

We so enjoyed our month here: The thoughtful welcoming gifts; our daily tennis game followed by a swim and walk on the beach - all provided a delightful respite from the ice cold in Toronto. Thanks also for your prompt response to our phone calls - you take very good care of your guests! Loved the location and the friendly guests we met. All our best, Terry and Wally

I challenge you!

  • 5 of 5

I challenge you to find something to complain about regarding this property. It was our first visit to Marco Island and now it'll be tough to beat. I'm not sure that staying across the street at the Marriott and paying 4X the nightly rate would be any better. It was the wife and I, and for two people it was perfect. Extremely clean, furnished well for a rental and the owner addresses all the little things.

Pleasant Stay

  • 5 of 5

Dealing with owner was easy and pleasant. Accommodations were everything we expected and clean. Very satisfied with rental and just a short walk to beach. Friendly and helpful residents. Would definitely recommend . Thanks again

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! We're glad that everything met or exceeded your expectations. The beach entrance is right in front of the condominium complex, and then just a few feet from Quinn's on the Beach restaurant, which we recommend for your first evening at the condo to watch the sunset while you eat. Quinn's is part of the upscale Marriot resort ambiance, but prices are very reasonable. Thank you for staying with us! We hope to see you again!

Enjoyable visit to Marco Island

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this unit November 11-18, 2017. Upon booking, the owner sent us a packet with all the information we would need for our stay. We also had concerns about hurricane damage and he was very responsive and put our minds at ease.

The unit is cheerful and cozy and best suited for 2 guests or 2 guests and a small child. There is one bathroom which can only be accessed through the bedroom and it is very small. It has a beautiful tiled shower but no bathtub. There are windows all around the unit covered with nice wooden shutters. When closed, you have complete privacy, but when the sun comes up in the morning, the bedroom is bright. The kitchen is well-equipped and we appreciated the use of a beach umbrella and chairs.

The pool area is lovely and the water was a perfect temperature.

This unit is located on the back side of the building which makes it very peaceful but there is no view of the water or the beautifully landscaped beachfront hotels across the street. Beach access is literally directly across the street which is very convenient.

We enjoyed dinner and happy hour drinks at La Tavola and Nacho Mama's both located very near the unit. We also enjoyed a delicious lunch at Mango's Dockside Bistro.

There is a Seven-Eleven within walking distance with a nice variety of items at fair prices.

Overall we had a wonderful experience on our first visit to Marco Island and we thank Bob for the use of this lovely unit.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! The beach is right across the street, with many restaurants, clubs, and a convenience store within close walking distance. This is the private free-standing unit seen in the photos next to the pool, with windows on all sides. Thank you for staying with us! We hope to see you again.

The place was perfect for our needs and walking distance to all of our events.

  • 4 of 5

Over all very good though nobody was ever at the front desk to checkin to our condo, but we had all codes and never had a problem!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! The beach, restaurants, shopping, and Marriott Hotel events are all close to the condo. The unit has a convenient dedicated parking space, and door codes are provided in advance to permit check in at any time day or night. The condominium complex is overseen by a building manager in the realty office on the ground floor, which is open from 9-5 Monday to Friday. The manager also conducts general business in a separate office below the unit from 10-noon, however, all condos are individually owned, so please contact us directly--during your stay--if you have any questions, concerns, or need assistance. Unlike hotels, there is no "front desk" per se. We live here on Marco Island all year, can provide immediate assistance, and are available 24/7. The building manager is cordial and can be helpful with general questions, but does not manage individual units.

A True Vacation!

Great location! Bob/Betty/Christopher are truly mindful having a clean, safe condo with extras (ice chest/umbrella/beach chairs/vacuum) that make staying there a real pleasure! The packet they send ahead of time is remarkable!

Great location, very clean and we enjoyed our stay. First time on San Marco Island and we couldn’t have picked a better place to stay. The location was great! The condo was very welcoming and decorated cute too. It’s just a short walk to the beach (right across the street) and we used the beach chairs that were provided. The information that Bob sent to our home beforehand was very helpful. He included places to eat, things to do and maps. This was extremely helpful since it was our first time on the island but will not be our last. Thanks, for sharing your condo with us!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review! We're glad that everything met or exceeded your expectations. We lived in this unit ourselves when we first arrived on Marco Island. The beach is right there in front of the condos, and there are many facilities shops, and restaurants within a short walking distance. Thank you for staying with us. We hope to see you again!
