Overview

About the property

One bedroom Gulf front condo with Gulf and sunset views. Sleeps 4

Welcome guests! Our unit has been updated as of July, 2017 Please see our newly posted pictures.

We offer stays of 4-7 nights off peak at the weekly rate listed.

The Apollo is one of the nicest buildings on Marco Island. It is a well-kept building with a friendly atmosphere. Security is given high priority and there is a rolling program of maintenance and a manager's office on site which keeps standards up. With no road between the building and the beach, the only thing keeping you from sinking your toes in the white sand is a visit to the privately owned restaurant and bar located in the complex.

Your stay at the Apollo includes air conditioning and access to elevators, laundry facilities, a swimming pool and hot tub, tennis courts, and covered parking. The beach is fairly firm for walking, consisting of tiny fragments of shell. Shell collecting and beach walking are popular pastimes among guests at the Apollo.

A local rental company will take care of you throughout your stay.

Marco Beach is a place to fall in love with. From your balcony, you look out on to a fabulous three and a half mile beach with access via a short boardwalk over protected seagrass. If you choose to stay within the comforts of your unit, you can sit on the included chairs and table and still see the beach with pelicans and seabirds flying above, dolphins hanging around in the gulf, and in season turtles that come ashore in the moonlight to lay their eggs. A spectacular sunset over the water can be seen every night from your west facing balcony.

NO CLEANING FEES

****We are happy to accommodate stays of 4,5,6 or 7 days off peak, however, please note the following:

OFF PEAK RENTALS NEED TO INCLUDE EITHER A CHECK IN OR CHECK OUT DAY TO BE A SATURDAY

About Dave & Angela Barth

My wife and I first found and fell in love with Marco Island while driving around Florida in 1993. Back then all we could do was dream we might get back there someday. In April of 2014 we stayed in the Apollo for our 25th anniversary trip. Well, we still loved it and in December we returned and bought a little piece of paradise... unit 1003 in The Apollo. I am a retired fire fighter and my wife is a teacher in New Jersey. We have 2 children, 19 yo Jake and 17 yo Rachel. In a few short years the kids will be off to college and we will be retired in Marco Island, until then we are fortunate enough to be able to share Marco Island with our family and friends and our friends we don't know yet. 'You can't make old friends.'

Dave & Angela Barth purchased this condo in 2015

Why Dave & Angela Barth chose Florida South West

Location, location, location. The Apollo offers everything the vacationing couple or small family could want. Everything in the complex is conveniently located. Short walk to the beach, pool, hot tub, fitness center, tennis, laundry and on-site bar/restaurant. Pride in ownership resounds throughout the building.

Located in the desirable South Marco area, access to restaurants and other conveniences is easy.

What makes this condo unique

The Sunset Grille is on the first floor for snacks, dinner or drinks. Apollo is one of the few beach front buildings with weekly rentals available on Marco Island.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Perfect, cozy spot for a getaway for us. Walk to beach, restaurant. The unit 1003 was very nice. We had pretty much everything we needed for our stay. We only had to purchase personal care items, laundry detergent, TP etc which we expected per the listing. Owners pay attention to detail. Will book again.

A nice apartment with a marwellous view!

  • 4 of 5

A really nice apartment with a good balcony. Everything was good and well equipt in the kitchen. Lot of towels an a washing mashine by the elevator for everybody in the house. Nice bed and a good aircondition. The problem that we hade, was the quite loud aircondition and some other nocie from the roof. And the seabirds in the morning aswell. The water in the kitchen was rinning quite slow, and when we tryed do adjust it we could not fix it. One lady in the reception was quite bad and ingnorant to us. Dont no why.

But overall a very nice stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are glad that the unit suited your needs and I'm happy we were able to fix the faucet within a day. I'm sorry it was noisy for you. We were not aware of any repairs on the roof and sadly the birds fly wherever they please. I will contact management about your experience with the desk person.

Pleasantly surprised by updated unit

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here a year ago and loved the unit and Marco so we came back. The unit was just redone.

New furniture and paint. Updated nice and tasteful. Has a more open, airy and tropical feel now.

We are ready for next summer

Perfect, quiet and safe !

  • 4 of 5

Clean and convenient condo. We had everything we need for cooking. It was great to have the beach so near. At every moment we look at the sea from the balcony there was dolphins swimming. Water is crystal clear.

Thanks for everything.

Excellent!! Very relaxing time.

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time. Condo was just what we were looking for. It had everything we needed, as well as gorgeous views and sunsets. Watched dolphins every day. We will definitely consider this condo if we return to Marco in the future and it is still being rented out. Thanks for the privilege of staying in your condo!
