Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday condo in City of Marco - 704 Somerset Beachfront Condo

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

If you want the best of the best, look no further, this is it.

Mid-January 2016 we completed an extensive remodel of our Marco Island residence. This was a major project that took 29 weeks of construction to complete. This lavish beachfront condo, featuring 3 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms, is unmatched by any hotel room on the island.

This stunningly beautiful remodel of this spacious condo included improvements and upgrades such as new: Italian made flooring throughout; wooden louvered doors with raised molding; custom woodwork trim; lighting systems; new bathrooms all with walk-in showers; HVAC system; windows and window treatments; glass sliders; and cabinetry. The all-new kitchen features state of the art KitchenAid brand appliances, including a wine cooler with easy adjustment – for that “perfect” Chardonnay temperature you prefer.

There are also new “exotic” grade, quartzite countertops in the kitchen areas, (including full-height backsplashes), bathrooms and even in the laundry room. The kaleidoscope of colors in these stones is spectacular to see firsthand. Another big upgrade includes a new living room entertainment system featuring a 60-inch Hi-Def TV/Blu-ray setup accompanied by a BOSE brand surround sound system. There are literally, hundreds of additional improvements that were also made; ones for functionality, beautification of décor and others simply for personal enjoyment as well that are all too numerous to mention.

There are two master bedrooms, both with king beds and a third bedroom suite with two twin beds. All three bedrooms feature their own on-suite bathrooms that were also renovated in our January 2016 remodel. The beachfront master suite has an incredible view of the Gulf of Mexico, along with direct access to the gulf side terrace! This large master bedroom suite features a separate dressing area with vanity, a walk-in closet and a spacious bathroom. The new on-suite master bathroom features an oversized Roman shower and has a large double sink vanity providing plenty of space for two. This condo has many beautiful tropical design features with designer decorations and furnishings throughout. This condo is our second home and we take special care of it.

As you can also see in the photos, this amazing condo truly is, “over the top”.

The highlight of this 7th floor condo is the great room – a spacious open-air concept featuring the kitchen, dinning room and living room – all with incredible views of the Gulf of Mexico. In fact, when looking out at the Gulf from these areas, one has the feeling of being on a cruise ship. The large renovated kitchen has all new state-of-the-art appliances including a refrigerator, dishwasher, oven, cooktop, wine chiller and an under-cabinet microwave.

This condo has a walk-in laundry room equipped with washer and dryer located directly off of the kitchen, via a pocket door. Other amenities include free wireless Internet, DVD player, a flat screen TV in each bedroom and basic toiletries. For your convenience, luxurious designer linens and towels are provided for the bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen and beach. This condo unit also has a beach locker, located near the pools, and is equipped with beach lounge chairs and a sun umbrella. This is a non-smoking unit.

Don’t forget about all the amenities of the Somerset Condominium building - similar to those of a luxury resort. This luxurious beachfront condominium features two private heated pools, two private tennis courts, beach access, and barbecue grills all within seconds of this condo unit’s front door. The building sits directly on Marco’s pristine white sandy beach where you can collect shells while leisurely walking along or just sit and watch the tide come and go. The Somerset has a gated street entry and a gated beach entry. The Somerset building is easy to get around in because it features both elevators and stairways and the grounds have lighted pathways throughout tropical, landscaped gardens. The Somerset is also located within walking distance to some of Marco’s best restaurants, shopping and entertainment!

Go ahead, …… pamper yourself.

Thank you for your interest and please feel free to call me (Joe) personally at 513-403-8955, EST. I would be glad to talk with you.

Beautifully renovated condo! Our family has stayed here twice and we couldn't love the location or condo more! The views are spectacular and watching the Dolphins from the balcony is a wonderful site for young and old alike! The Gondings - are welcoming and gracious hosts!

Pristine beaches, gorgeous sunsets, big lovely living space......who could ask for more.....love, love, love it!

August of 2014 Late Review. Incredible, peaceful, clean and a dream come true

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our four children, stayed at Joe and Robin's condo for one week. We had never been to Marco Island before. The condo was such a pleasant surprise. Very spacious, clean and comfortable. You can lay in the master bedroom and hear the ocean all night and all day. The master bath was incredible, very modern and enough room for all of us in the shower if we wanted to put 6 of us in there :)

The kitchen had high end pans, dishes, etc. and is equipped for everything, including wine openers. Laundry room was stocked well and the appliances were high end. The living room and dining room are beautiful and super comfortable. The second and third bedroom each have a bathroom to use as well. Really could not ask for more in this condo. It is comfortable enough you could stay in all week and not go anywhere but the condo and the beach.

The beach is steps away from the elevator over the boardwalk, with a shower for rinsing everything on your way back. Beach chairs, and umbrella are provided by Joe and Robin as well.

The sea shells are incredible, thousands, etc. We brought home hundreds. We are a home school family and the identification of the shells proved a fascinating topic. We visited the local park, kayaked, swam in the ocean, eat at restaurants which were fantastic and walked the beach.

Rent this condo and you will not be sorry. Great for a family or even just two people. This is not like other condos, you feel like it is home, very cozy and everything is provided.

Thank you Joe and Robin, our family made memories we will never forget. The children were able to visit a blue and clean ocean front with white beautiful sand. A dream come true for our kiddos.

This year is the second time we have stayed in Joe and Robin's spacious condo….we love it!! Our daughter, son-in-law and two grandchildren join us. The condo with two king beds, two twin beds and separate baths work out perfect for two families. The condo is tastefully decorated and well maintained. The lanai offers a panoramic view of the white sandy beach, beautiful sunsets and dolphins swimming by. The Somerset complex is clean and the landscaping is lovely. We really like Marco Island and now have our favorite restaurants and shops. Joe and Robin are excellent "hosts" and we love their condo as evidenced by the fact that we have already reserved our time for next year.

Beautiful condo on the beach

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a very special vacation on Marco Island with our kids and grandkids. The condo was lovely, exactly as pictured on the VRBO site, and easily housed the 7 of us. The lanai was spectacular, very roomy with 180 degree views of the white sand beach. Worked out very well when the grandkids were napping, we could catch the afternoon sun on the lanai. We utilized the pool and tennis courts as well. The entire complex was beautifully maintained and the owners and leasing agent were very easy to deal with. No issues at all. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

Three couples recently spent a week in this wonderful condo. This was our first time staying on Marco Island and we would definitely choose this condo again. It was spotless and exactly as pictured. Joe is a joy to work with, if needed. The building and the grounds are well kept and lovely. The beach and the warm gulf water are the best we have experienced for a long time. We would not consider staying anywhere else on Marco Island. Thanks for a great week.

Owner's Response: Thanks Su for the very nice comments about your recent stay with us. We are glad to know that you and your family & friends were pleased with our condo and had an enjoyable experience. As I believe I had mentioned to you, my wife Robin is an interior designer and this condo (our second home) is her on-going pet project, so to speak. Thanks again and we look forward, hopefully, to your return visit soon. Joe
