What makes this condo unique

Fell in love with Marco Island on our first visit with my two sons and my husband.Views from the condo are breathtaking whether it is during the day looking at the dolphins and fish jumping out of the water or the sunsets in the evening right from the lanai.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at the condo from April 1-16, 2011. The owner was very accommodating and allowed us to come in a day earlier at no extra charge and e-mailed us that the people who were to come in on the 16th had a change of plans so we could stay longer. Every effort was made to provide us comfort and enjoyment. It is extremely evident that the condo has been decorated with loving care. Everything is immaculate and everything you could possibly need is provided. All appliances are new and so is the bedroom furniture. The dishes, glassware and cookery are absolutely immaculate.

However, the most important and amazing things of all are:

The sunset from the balcony ….. people come from everywhere and watch. When the sun disappears beyond the horizon everyone claps. It is so moving!

When the tide is high ….. (for us it was early morning) you can sit in the condo or better yet on the balcony and watch the dolphins diving for fish and playing.

The ocean, beach and shells are right out your door. Chairs, noodles and umbrellas are provided by the owner. You do not have to pack the car, drive and then drag everything to the nearest public beach.

The pool is perfect when you’ve have enough sun and still want to be outdoors, in shade, and have access to water.

The restaurant, located within Apollo has excellent lunches and dinners with reasonable prices. They also willingly and pleasantly provide you with quarters for the washer and drier when the exchange machine is down.

Most of all, not only is this location one of the best on the island, EVERYONE we came in contact with was exceeding friendly and informative.



Oh, by the way, we have already taken March 17-31, 2012. Sorry!

A magical place with a gracious host and a beautiful condo!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Apollo was amazing. The view from the condo to the beach is breathtaking at all times, but is truly magical for sunsets. The condo is clean and tidy with everything you would need to make your time at Marco perfect. From the assigned covered parking, friendly front desk staff to the lovely pool and very short stroll to the beach it's a great place to stay. Positioned at the southern end of the island, the beach is plenty wide during both low and high. While the shelling is plentiful everywhere along Marco, there's a great spot for unique finds as the beach turns around the southern point just about 100 yards or so south of Apollo. We watched Manatee play in the surf and were visited by a small nurse shark during our stay. While we didn't see any dolphin in the Gulf, we did enjoy them while dining dockside at Snook Inn (dined twice here, as we couldn't resist the ALL YOU CAN EAT steamed shrimp on Tuesday). We also had a "Can't Miss" breakfast at NeNe's. I can't say enough nice things about Barbara, the Apollo and Marco Island. It was a perfect getaway with my wife and we will absolutely be back to get our Ocean Fix in the future! Thanks Barbara and we'll be in touch to book again soon!

Great View and condo

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 with 2 small children had a great vacation for 6 nights at Barbara's condo. She was absolutely professional and helpful in every way. The condo itself is kind of small only about 500 sf but very well equipped with anything that you might need in the kitchen and bathroom, plenty of towels, even beach chairs, umbrellas and all kinds of accessories. The condo has the best possible location right on the beach with amazing views of the ocean and beautiful sunsets. Just couple remarks the balcony screen needs fixing and the sofa in the living room probably needs to be updated it is definitely not suitable for sleeping of adults but was fine for our small kids. Also the whole building has some really weird rules like you need a real key to get in the building from the parking lot and beach and even from the pool then this is not enough so you need this same key for the elevator as well but these are just small remarks our vacation was great and the view and beach are absolutely delightful Marco Island is very similar to Siesta Key by the way.

Once again thank you for our wonderful stay and hopefully we'll be back soon

Wonderful! Beautiful Sunsets!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time. Location was great and the view was amazing. Property was clean and the people working there were very friendly. While the condo could use some updates and a fresh coat of paint, it was what we expected. We had no major issues or problems. It had everything we needed for a great week on the beach! It was great to have the beach chairs and towels. We sat on the beach every night and watched the sunset. We would definitely recommend it and would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I am actually getting the Condo painted within the next two weeks with a beautiful gray hue which will look great with the recently whitened sealed tile floors You will see the pictures updated on my web page.

Relaxing Time At The Beach

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I had a very nice time at this property. The one bedroom condo is right on the beach and just steps away from the water. There is also a very nice pool. The restaurant in the building is another great convenience. The property is clean and provided beach towels and beach chairs. The weather was cloudy during most of our stay but we were fortunate to catch an amazing sunset from our balcony one evening. We would love to rent this property again.

Clean, great location, friendly staff, just what you need.

  • 3 of 5

Very nice location, directly on the beach. Good location for sunsets and wildlife watching from the balcony. Chairs and towels included for using at the beach. Great pool, OK restaurant in building. Condo/condo building kind of old/outdated. Keys and doors were difficult to use. Very few drawbacks. No major problems. Would stay again.

Owner's Response: Sorry to hear of the problems with the keys and doors. I've never had anyone experience such problems. This was the first date that we were permitted to allow renters in our building after the hurricane. Possibly there were still additional repairs needed on the access doors to the building which were damaged by the hurricane. I will follow up with management on your concerns. Glad to hear that you would stay again.
