About Michael Bray
We are two Brits - living and working in the UK - but owners at Marriott Crystal Shores from the very start. We also own Marriott properties in Spain - but we love Marco so much that we flew back here specifically to get married on the beach in October 2015 (see pic)! (If you need advice and contacts, let us know!). Mike & Sue
Michael Bray purchased this Apartment in 2009
Why Michael Bray chose Marco Island
Most of all, it is important to understand that this is a Gulf Front apartment on a Beach Front Category 9, Marriott Resort. The resort has numerous facilities, including Swimming Pools, Fitness Center and Kids Activities. You can walk out of the resort, across a short boardwalk, straight onto the beach! Marriott has a significant investment on Marco Island - with both a Category Hotel and Resort - both along the same beautiful white beach. We love the lovely warm seas, sitting on the balcony, watching the sunsets and also the evening thunderstorms! The beach and sea are frequented by many different birds - and it's also possible to see dolphins swimming along occasionally. Nearby, there are great shopping opportunities in Naples and Miami, plus Airboat Rides in the Everglades. There are also nearby supermarkets, just a short drive away, for stocking up with supplies, plus a number of restaurants just across the street.

What makes this Apartment unique
You will enjoy the unique benefit of Marriott quality and service while at the resort. As above, the apartment is Gulf Front - being the block that directly overlooks the beach and the sea.We love to relax on the balcony and watch the world go by. This is especially true at sunset - as the block faces due west - for hopefully a truly spectacular view. With the aid of the sliding doors in the bedroom, you can even lay in bed - listening to the waves on the shore. Bliss! The resort being beach front, allows you to easily switch from poolside to the beach itself. If you have never experienced the warm waters of the Gulf, then you are in for a real treat!! If you venture outside of the resort - you can discover the fantastic Florida wild-life in the Everglades, or visit Sanibel & Captiva - or just visit the amazing shopping malls in and around Naples.
