Welcome to beach-life living! Our condo is a 2 bedroom, 2 bath first floor condo that sleeps 5. (read: No long elevator waits like in those high rise condos). With no long elevator waits, you will be settled in quickly so you can get to the heated pool that is only 20 steps from your door, the beautiful white sandy South Beach which is only a 5 minute walk to the beach entrance, or grab a bite to eat at one of the amazing, nearby restaurants.
The condo is stocked with everything you'd need from kitchen utensils and appliances to beach towels, beach chairs, toys, etc. Flatscreen TVs in both bedrooms and living room, a comfortable pull out couch, lazy boy chair, a nice eating area, and our favorite part- The lanai where you can sit and drink your morning coffee, or that evening glass of wine. Beautiful pool and tennis courts are part of our complex and there is a car port for parking plus lots of visitor spots. 7 minute walk to movie theater, miniature golf, great restaurants, bars, etc. New washer, refrigerator, couch, lazy boy chair, linens, towels, tiled floor for lanai, screen door for cross breeze. And we just replaced all the blinds in the place to new honeycomb, room darkening shades which is a huge upgrade from the standard vertical blinds.
Allow me to take you on the tour....
The kitchen is simple, clean and has all the comforts of your home kitchen. A blender to make smoothies and frozen margaritas; a new coffee maker with time delay so you can have fresh coffee in the mornings; cookware to whip up any dinner; there’s even a crock pot! Plus all the serving ware, utensils and gadgets you’ll need to feel right at home.
Walk out of the kitchen into the open and spacious dining and living room. The dark wood dining room table has 4 chairs under a beautiful and unique light fixture where meals can be shared in a more formal dining tradition if you like. Have a 5th person? Replace one of the chairs with the colorful bench that is at the foot of the master bed and now two can sit on one of the long ends of the table (this is the most comfortable bench you will ever sit on- my kids fight over who gets to sit on it for meals).
The dining area opens up into the living room where you will find a new, bright couch that opens up into a queen pull out bed, a soft chair and leather ottoman where you can find soft and plush blankets for those rare cool Florida evenings, and our favorite- the red leather lazy boy chair which will become the most sought out seating during your stay. Plenty of seating for everyone to watch a movie on the new flat screen TV with DVD/Blue-Ray player. Check out the supply of family-friendly movies you can use, as well as a few board games that we keep in the unique, colorful armoire next to the TV/entertainment stand. This piece doubles as a beautiful accent piece (same artist as the bench) for the living room that stores movies and games, but also can be used to store clothes and personal belongings for the person who sleeps on the pull out couch. No more living out of a suitcase for the couch-sleeper. They now get their own little armoire to store their things without having the eye-sore of an exploding suitcase in the living area for all the guests to see.
And don't forget to check in on all your electronic devices by using the WIFI.
After you stroll through the living room, now it’s time to see your beautifully decorated and comfortable bedrooms with new, luxurious linens, matching towels and decor for the master and 2nd bathroom. The master bedroom has a very comfortable queen bed with a pillow topper, top of the line pillows and sheets you will want to sink into every night. Brightly colored quilt ties in with the unique and one-of-a-kind artwork from a local Florida artist. Enjoy watching TV on the new flat screen along with another DVD/Blue-Ray player in the master bedroom. Ample dressers to store your clothes and if that was not enough, the walk in closet through the master bathroom will give you more storage space for sure. The master bathroom has plenty of plush towels in coordinating colors.
The second bedroom is unique in that you can have either two twin beds or these can be converted into a king bed. New high-end bedding in madras plaid (twin beds) or red, white and blue (king) linens match the nautical theme of this room and is appropriate for the adult couple or the kids who get to sleep in this room. The second bathroom has a tub for those who like to take bath and you will find plenty of new, matching towels in the linen closet in the hallway.
Across from the linen closet is the washer and dryer set so you can take care of all your laundry needs right from the comfort of your condo.
Once you are settled in your rooms, it’s time to head out to our favorite part- the screened in lanai that has a new ceramic tile floor that helps keep things clean. You will find comfortable patio furniture to sit back and relax in while you sip a beverage and enjoy the scenery. Low table great for playing family games on, putting your feet up to read or serving appetizers while you chat and sip wine. Try the reclining chair for zero-gravity feel while you take a nap, read or enjoy the serenity.
Ready to go to the beach? We have all the items you will need so you don’t have to bring a thing. Brand new beach towels, beach bag and even an insulated carry-cooler are in the closet and then there is a storage unit outside in the car port where you can pick up beach chairs, noodles, umbrellas, sand toys, boogie boards, bamboo mats, and the ever helpful, beach cart you can fill up with all your stuff and roll to the beach, which is only a 5 minute walk from the front door of the condo.
Rather head to the pool? Grab a towel and walk literally 20 steps to the heated pool where you can lay out and enjoy the sun. It is so nice not to have to wait for an elevator to get to the pool. So if you forget something, it is a quick walk back. The kids will love the freedom of going from condo to pool in a matter of seconds.
Get ready for beach-life living in your home away from home while you enjoy the beautiful, Marco Island and all it has to offer.
