About Mike McCarty

We moved to Marco Island to get away from Minnesota winters. We live here year round at another condo just a few buildings away from this property.

Mike McCarty purchased this condo in 1996

Why Mike McCarty chose Florida South Gulf Coast

We purchased this property because the Somerset is the largest size weekly rental units on the island and the only weekly rental units with washer and dryers in the unit. It is a quiet, peaceful and relaxing environment in a well maintained building. The west view is fantastic and the sunsets change nightly. Hard to beat the weather from November through May. The sound of the surf is soothing. Forget the car...take the elevator to the beach! Marco Island is like going to Hawaii without the long plane ride.

Disappointed with our unit

  • 1 of 5

We are disappointed with this unit.

Somerset is great, beach amenities are fantastic. Beach is very nice and family oriented.

Our issue was with the unit. The a/c was out for two days! This is Florida, it gets hot! The shower was clogged and some of the light fixtures were inoperative.

We spoke to unit owner who addressed the issue but should had

offered a discount for the discomfort

caused to us from lack of mechanical unkept of this unit.

I recommend Somerset, but not this unit.

Owner's Response: Olga, Just to keep the facts straight here, you called about the air conditioning, I was at the unit within minutes to discover the facts. I called my a/c repairman who arrived within two hours. While I was waiting you pointed out two additional concerns, the slow drain in the shower and a single fixture in the dining room. While I was waiting for the repairman I immediately fixed those two items. A hair clog in the drain and two lightbulbs in the fixture. This was all done within one hour of your call to inform me. The a/c man said the air handler needed to be defrosted and that he would return in the morning, which he did. The thermostat was reading 75 degrees when I first arrived and 76 degrees the next morning. Yes, that temperature was higher than each of us would prefer, but it was fixed as rapidly as possible. The time difference between when you informed me and the a/c being fixed was 24 hours. Any credit for cleanliness, stocking of the unit or responsiveness to your problem? Obviously not. Sorry that your stay was not perfect in all respects, but I simply found your financial demands to be unreasonable. Mike

Always a pleasure staying at Somerset

  • 4 of 5

Mike was great and helpful and always available. Had an issue with AC but was resolved within 24 hours. One negative I would say is the master bath does not have a shower. It's only a Whirlpool bath which may be inconvenient at times.

Unit upgrade required

  • 3 of 5

Compare to the previous Somerset units we have stayed last several years this units is less equipped and less comfy. It does not have a shower in main bathroom; vent in both bathrooms are old and so noisy we've rather not used it ; water saving shower head in the only shower in the unit barely spray any water: freezer did not fully work and it had to be replaced during our stay; entrance room with metal blind do not have a screens so mosquitos can get in to bite you ; on positive side -yes freezer was replaced, broken beach umbrella was replaced; and place was clean with accommodating bed and bedding.

Vrbo reservation was disaster due to their staff repeatedly misspelling our e-mail address so we almost missed the booking information until the owner contacted us; Vrbo agent who we have 2x contacted to rectify the booking was not proficient in English and appears to be not fully up to the speed with the system. Otherwise beach, ocean and weather where great and very enjoyable.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay! The balcony view and access to the beach made all the difference. The unit itself was extremely comfortable and well appointed. Mike was great to work with in making this a wonderful vacation .
