About Terrell Monks

I am an attorney in Oklahoma but I spend as much time as possible in Florida. We vacation around the world, but we always love coming back to Marco Island.

Terrell Monks purchased this condo in 2010

Why Terrell Monks chose Marco Island

This complex is a block from resident's beach where you have access to inexpensive meals, facilities, chairs, and of course the best beach. If you want to go a little further the public beach access is an easy bike ride or walk. The local businesses often offer live music in the evenings and they showcase very good talent. Groceries, ice cream, marina, and Starbucks within walking distance.

Resident's beach is 3/10 of a mile south of the Aquarius driveway on Collier Blvd. There is a $130 fee per family to join MICA for access to resident's beach. That includes parking. This beach has a nice little cafe, clean restrooms, cabanas and more. 3/10 of a mile further south is a free/public beach access but there is no parking there. At the south end of the island is another public beach. Parking is $8 a day. There is a single restroom in the parking area.

Tiger Tail Beach is a public beach beach about 1.5 miles from our complex. It has a child play area, a little cafe, kayak rental, and a nice protected area suitable for children. Parking is $8. This beach is not as well groomed as resident's beach but it is very decent and a bargain.

What makes this condo unique

The staff at Aquarius makes this place so much better than most. They work to make you feel at home and do not bother you nor make you feel unwelcome. It is an easy walk to Residents Beach, an only a little further to groceries and the marina.

The perfect place to relax and enjoy the island

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the studio for two months and had a very relaxed and enjoyable stay. The studio is centrally located on the island with easy access to everything you need. The home is well equipped clean and quiet. There is a well maintained large oval pool on the property that I enjoyed very much. A short walk across the street and you're on Residents Beach which I visited nearly every day during my stay. The gulf sunsets are absolutely beautiful and unique each day. A great stay at a solid value and I highly recommend it to others.

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

Terrell's place was a very clean and spacious. Comfortable for 3 people. The Murphy bed was very comfortable.The shower pressure was really nice. Laundry is a few steps away as well as the pool and main office.

The property is very well maintained all around. The complex is very close to all stores , restaurants and especially the beach. The night was very very quiet. No flight paths overhead or Highways or Trains. I slept very well. I would recommend Terrell's place to anyone who appreciates Marco Island.

Loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

Unit was nicely done and clean. An additional refrigerator has been added since pictures were posted. That was a great addition to the unit. The complex the unit is in is very friendly with many additional things to don't besides enjoy the beaches on the island. Great location near pool and grill area and also it was on the first floor. Would stay again if it was available.

Our Favorite Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo Dec 2014 and walked on a beautiful beach Christmas day. We found the condo to be very nice, clean and efficiently arranged. Everything we needed was supplied in perfect condition. The linens, towels and cookware is high quality. The grounds and pool is immaculetely maintained. We enjoyed walking to the beach daily and the pool is really nice. The condo staff is courteous and helpful and the people we met were friendly. This location is perfect for biking and walking, the sidewalks are very wide.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed our home-away-from-home on Marco Island. The great weather would be enough, but the good food and excellent beach make this our favorite place to escape the cold and ice. We hope to see you again soon.

Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible time in Marco Island. The condominium was perfect with easy access to beautiful white sand beaches and restaurants. It was very clean. The kitchen was great and had everything we needed. It was so quiet, the grounds were beautiful, the pool was excellent. The staff was helpful. We fell in love with South Florida! The sunsets were a daily event. I would recommend it to everyone!
