About the property

Studio Condo, 1 bathroom, sleeps 3 with a beautiful view from large lanai.

Unique opportunity awaits as December 2017 and January 2018 just became available. Spectacular panoramic gulf front view with gorgeous sunsets on long lanai. Beautifully furnished studio apartment with tropical decor, large tile, leather furniture including a queen-size pull-out couch, queen-size Murphy bed with newer mattress and mirrored wall in dining area. There is a walk in closet and cabinet for clothes. Updated bathroom. Wifi in condo. Sunset House sits in the middle of the crescent beach, in between the first 3 condos built on Marco Island. Thus, they chose the primo location on the entire beach. The beach in front of Sunset House is the widest stretch of beach, the most secluded, quietest and less occupied part of the beach. The beach is groomed Monday through Friday and is clear of debris. The pool at Sunset House is one of the largest on the beach and even in high season, there are empty lounge chairs and plenty room in the pool. This is the place to relax, enjoy the white sandy beach, beautiful sunny weather, read a book and observe abundant wildlife. You can enjoy the beautiful sunset on our long lanai while enjoying happy hour with a cool tropical drink! Nothing is more romantic than a candlelight dinner on the lanai.

To the right of Sunset House is Tiger tail beach which is a lagoon with a natural wildlife, protected preserve. You can rent paddle boats and cabanas if you wish or simply stroll for hours on the beach. Marco Island beach has the most beautiful shells. Our favorites are lightening whelks and sand dollars. Our largest sand dollar to date is 5 3/8ths in diameter to the smallest the size of a quarter. Our favorite things to do are strolls on the beach, shelling and enjoying a gorgeous sunset. As the night progresses, the stars get more abundant and bright. They look great from the lanai but are even more spectacular during a nighttime stroll on the beach. Depending on what time of year you plan on vacationing, you may see large varieties of bird migrations and possible turtle nests on the beach. Sunset House is well-maintained and is always in pristine condition.

The Travel Channel listed the top 10 beaches in Florida. We have been to 8 of the top ten and none come close to our natural beauty of our crescent-shaped beach, of which there are only 7 crescent beaches in the world. Recently, Marco Island has been voted the number one island destination in the US and third in the world by TripAdvisor. The locals were hoping to keep this a secret but the word is out. The sand is the whitest we have ever seen and we have traveled the Caribbean, Cancun, Mexico, Costa Rica and Hawaii. Come visit our paradise.....

Renters must be 25 years or older.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I was staying at the condo and loved the view and having the beach almost to ourselves. Great to sit out on the lanai and watch the sunset. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the condo, at the pool and beach. Condo was very well appointed.

Great Beach and Sunset View

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at Cindy and Leigh's condo. This was our first experience living in a studio unit and we were pleasantly surprised at the amount of living space. The murphy bed besides being extremely comfortable, folds up to give a lot of usable space during the day, even more than the 1/2 bedroom units we have used in the past (since no one usually spends time in the bedrooms during the day). The unit has everything you need, the kitchen is well equipped, and there is plenty of linen and towels etc. The view is fantastic, the building (and unit) is well maintained and the car parking is covered. We will definitely return to this great condo. Thank You Cindy and Leigh for a great month.

Beach Front Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this condo for the month of August 2013 and did not want to go home! The condo is located on the fifth floor with spectacular views of the beach and susets. It has all the things needed for a great beach vacation and is tastefully decorated and comfortable with all the accessories needed for self catering. We ate most meals on the balcony. It's also located near lots of good restaurants and supermarkets.Suset House and it's gardens and pool are immaculately kept and the social room has a good supply of movies you can watch in your condo when the occasional thunderstorm rolls in.

Thanks Cindy and Leigh for letting us stay at your Casa.

We will be coming back.

We had the pleasure of staying at Cindy and Leigh's wonderful Condo for six weeks this year. The Condo is well appointed, clean, cheerful and very functional. The furnishings are good quality and very comfortable, which made our stay all the more pleasant. from the balcony we enjoyed best sunsets EVER and wonderful views of the Gulf, swimming pool and meticulous grounds. The Sunset House Building is very well managed, clean and organized, management and tenants are friendly, accommodating and helpful. There is a peaceful calm that lends to really relaxing vacations. We enjoyed the fabulous clean, well kept Beach and pool area. As well as a comfortable well kept Social Room. We would highly recommend this wonderful Condo.

Truly the most peaceful beach stay!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed down at Marco anywhere from a few weeks to a month for the past 12 years. This is the first year we stayed at this sunset condo. It was truly out best stay. From the nicest beach on the island to the spectacular view of the water we enjoyed everyday. The layout was great and provided plenty of room as well as a great long balcony providing the outdoor space we like. It was very clean and had great amenities including a nice pool. Price was about 30% lower than all the other rentals week looked at as well and most of them did not have a view of the water. I would recommend to anyone looking to stay in Marco.

Marco Island is a world-class resort destination with sun-washed white beaches on a crescent-shaped beach and a laid back pace. Four miles wide by six miles long, Marco Island has it all - golf, boating, fishing, fine dining, shopping, shelling or just enjoying the pristine beaches. The beach is loaded with shells including sand dollars and starfish. Our condo is overlooking the beautiful beach and the view is spectacular. You just need to walk out of Sunset House and the quiet beach is there to enjoy.
