About Stephen & Rossana Wheelock

We have been visiting Marco Island since the 1980's and love it. We are both retired; my husband from the U.S. Department of State and I from a small furniture business. Marco Island is our second home and we always love coming here to enjoy the island atmosphere and sunshine.

Stephen & Rossana Wheelock purchased this condo in 1996

Why Stephen & Rossana Wheelock chose Marco Island

Apollo 405, one of the middle units, offers a bit more balcony privacy because it is walled on both sides. The 4th flooor level a commanding view of the beach and Gulf without the detached feeling that the higher levels may impart. Rossana enjoys decorating and has designed the unit to combine the sensation of being at home and also on a tropical vacation. We offer WiFi in the apartment (access code needed and provided) and standard cable TV channels.

The beach in front of the Apollo is located at the very south tip of Marco Beach and is unique in several ways. First, there are rocks that break up the erosion and offer a change of view, fishing points and sites where birds gather to seek food. On very low tide days, one may walk further down and see views of the 10,000 islands. The beach is amply sized and one is assured of finding a quiet area to enjoy the sun.

What makes this condo unique

The location is good for those who may wish to fish from the shore, the beach is home to a variety of birdlife, fish, dolphins and others and offers spectacular views of the Gulf and beach. Weddings are sometimes performed on the beach and yoga classes are also offered daily. Marco Island has a wonderful library, YMCA, mini-golf, medical and shopping.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our 15th wedding anniversary, and it was perfect! The view was stunning, the decor was beautiful and nicely updated, and the staff at both Berkshire, who handled the rental, and at the Apollo, where the unit was, were excellent. We would definitely stay here in the future!

You thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our recent stay at your property! The remodel was fabulous. You provided everything that we could possibly need to enjoy our stay. We really appreciated having the beach chairs, umbrella, cooler and cart to take to take everything down to the beach. We also spent plenty of time on the patio, enjoying the view of the beach and beautiful sunsets from the comfortable patio furniture.

Thanks for sharing your property! We hope to stay again soon!

Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We visit Marco Island yearly and have stayed at a few different condo's at the Apollo. This one by far was the nicest. We will definitely be reaching out to book this unit again next year.

Good location, beautiful view, nicely updated

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at Apollo. The location of the unit within the building is perfect. Towels, linens etc. were updated and clean. Plenty of utensils and supplies in the kitchenette. Bathroom was small, but clean and updated. We were unsure if the 4th floor would have a good view and it was perfect. Beautiful sunsets nightly and the view from the spacious balcony was spectacular. The beach is beautiful and very nice for walking (wear your flip flops or water shoes). We found many very good restaurants on the Island. The atmosphere on the Island is very laid back and casual which we loved! We will be back!
