About Pat or Vic Bermeo

Vic & Pat are originally from the UP of Michigan. You can understand why we decided to move south. We still love going back to the UP during the summer, as it is so beautiful. You won't catch us there in the winter.

Pat or Vic Bermeo purchased this condo in 1990

Why Pat or Vic Bermeo chose Marco Island

The Somerset is the best run weekly rental condominium on the island.

Very short walk to the beach compared to other condo's north of the Somerset.

What makes this condo unique

Everything needed is in the condo. All you need is your groceries or if you do not want to cook, many many restaurants to choose from. Nice large balcony to accommodate friends visiting. Beautiful view of sun sets every night.

Almost Paradise

  • 4 of 5

We were anxious to stay on Marco Island for a second year in a row.

When we were shown the unit, my first impression was that the furnishings were very dated. It's a spacious place, though, and we appreciated the ceiling fans.

The grounds are beautiful and mostly well-maintained. The location of Somerset is convenient to restaurants and shopping, and we spent many hours walking the beach. The views of the sunsets were anywhere from softly subtle to long-lasting and strikingly beautiful.

Several drawbacks: neighbors smoking cigarettes and cigars, talked very loudly. The people above us had parties and a number of guests who were very loud. One big draw for us regarding Marco (at least last year) was how quiet it is/was.

Several buildings north of us sits a Marriott and most nights they had very loud music - just awful, awful..

Probably our favorite activities were visiting Goodland and Everglades City - really "old Florida."

We appreciated how responsive Pat and Vic were to a couple of concerns we had. Nice people.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the review. I wish more people would do this as it is helpful to us and to prospective renters. Yes, the couple of issues were a night light burnt out and the cleaning people took the beach towels to finish drying them. Seeing as we live right here on the island we took care of those issues immediately. Everybody has a different take concerning the music from the Marriott. Some enjoy sitting out on the balcony at night drinking their own wine and enjoying the wonderful sounds of live music. To each their own in that respect.

Spectacular View!

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was wonderful from the time we met with Vic and Pat at check in until we checked out a week later. The condo is very nice, spacious, light and airy and of course there is the view which is breathtaking. There are beach chairs, umbrellas, and toys for your use. What is a real plus is when you enter the condo there is an outside room where all the beach equipment is kept so you do not bring sand and all the beach equipment into the condo itself. The owners are very nice and so easy to work with. We will definitely be coming back here!

Nice place. Would stay again

  • 4 of 5

The owners are very nice people. Friendly and accommodating (property folks are a little ridgid and the guy at the gate on our arrival was a little militaristic but he warmed up after a few days). Property very nice clean and all was in good working order. Beach was fabulous and we had a great time. There is so much to do in the area and we tried to take it all in. There were literally a couple dozen dolphins hanging around for a couple days and we had a lot of fun watching them. In all we had a terrific vacation can't wait to come back next year
