About Amelia Longo

We live a couple hours away from Marco Island, and we have purchased this property as a second home, to enjoy from time to time with the family, but saw a great opportunity to extend our home to guests and make it into a little investment property.

As a family that has stayed in many different vacation homes for the past 15 years, we felt we needed to bring to market a home that we would not only be able to enjoy ourselves, but offer our guests a pleasant and memorable experience.

We have a very active family with my husband working for a technology company, our 2 kids that go to school full time and with extra curriculum activities, and as our youngest is getting older, I decided to go back to work and among some of the projects I am managing today, I will be your main point of contact and management of this property.

Amelia Longo purchased this condo in 2012

Why Amelia Longo chose Florida South West

This is the next best thing to a luxury beachfront property, but without the cost:

• Great sunset view of the Gulf of the Mexico from the living and dining room, or simply standing in the balcony.

• Short walk to the beach, with great complementary amenities, with a wonderful heated pool, tennis court, and BBQ area by the pool.

• Newly remodeled 2 bedroom (w/HD TVs) & 2 bathroom, new mattresses, new rain showers, new kitchen and appliances, and HD TV and Internet connectivity.

• Easy to carry beach gear with beach cart, parasol, beach chairs, beach cooler, and kids beach toy.

• Full access to a multi functional printer/scanner/copier and Internet access throughout the apartment and in the pool area.

Great, comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

The location and apartment were both amazing. We were in town for a wedding, and it couldn't have been more perfect for 4 of us.

The photos on the posting accurately reflect what you’ll get.Will rent this unit again :)

  • 5 of 5

The owner’s instructions for accessing the unit, connecting to Wi-Fi, and getting around locally were succinct and useful. The location of the property is noteworthy. We really enjoyed ocean views from the balcony, living area and master bedroom. The size of bedrooms and bathrooms are just right. The walk to the beach happens in the blink of an eye. And the building is close to Marco Island’s town center with a Publix Super Market and many restaurants. The icing on the cake was the owner’s thoughtful inclusion of fun beach equipment (umbrellas, pails, collapsible chairs, and a cart).

Great location with comfy beds!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and loved that the beach was just a walk across the street. The beach chairs, umbrella, and beach cart that were provided came in handy!

Only things I noticed:

- no oven ... should have looked before we bought frozen pizzas 😳?

Great Location, Comfortable, Rare short term Marco rental, No Oven

  • 4 of 5

Ok full disclosure, I own a VRBO rental in a different state so I'm very appreciative of certain details and critical of others. First of the owners are very responsive and its GREAT to have a short term rental option while we're visiting family. Most of Marco is 1 month or longer rentals only. This condo has been Completely gutted and remodeled and has the highest quality finishes. It is right across from the Public beach access and Marco only has a few of them. Pool is great, there is an elevator with luggage carts to move your stuff. I can't say enough how nice it is to have comfortable beds and these owners didnt skimp! The beds are SUPER comfortable, even the smaller twin beds. Huge props for that. The owners let you use their beach cart, chairs and sand toys. This is just awesome since it's hard enough flying there with children.

Now with my VRBO listing I hate to get anything less than 5 stars and I really didnt want to do less than 5 here. But the condo is missing 2 CRITICAL items as well as a bunch of small things that earn it less than a full 5. So when most people go on vacation they stock up on food at the grocery store and eat in as much as possible right? Save money and the hassle of going out. Well we bought things that needed baked or heated up in the oven. Didnt realize til later that there is NO OVEN! There is a microwave and range top. Luckily we had family renting on Marco close by and we took our food there. Suggestion for owners...a Large toaster oven on the counter would go a long way here. The kitchen was also missing things like dishwashing machine soap and even a scrubbing sponge. These are all things I provide with my rental so I guess I just expected it. And like most rentals forget about finding a sharp knife. There is ONE knife thers that could be sharpened but alas, no sharpener.

If you have young children you know how important it is to have a bathtub to clean up after a long day at the beach and in the sun. Well the amazing remodel deleted the bathtubs in favor of large tile showers. The rain heads in these showers were awesome but a tub in one of the 2 bathrooms would have been nice.

I found thd A/C couldnt keep up on warmer days. There is a ton of glass doors and windows facing west and minimal curtains to block the sun. Some sort of blinds here would be nice.

Summary...if you're in need of a comfortable Marco short term rental close to the beach and dont cook alot then go for it!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weeklong stay. The condo was nicely decorated and included everything we needed for the beach. Everyone in the complex was very friendly as well. We were traveling with our three children (15, 13 & 9) and they loved Marco. Will definitely be back again!
