Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Marco Island - APOLLO 306

BeachFront Condo, 1 Bedroom + Sofa bed (Sleeps 2-4 but best suited for 2) 1 Bath

ALL REDECORATED/REFURNISHED, REMODELED KITCHEN WITH MORE CABINETS AND STAINLESS STEEL APPLIANCE; KING BED with NEW MATTRESS (2015), PREMIUM CHANNELS INCLUDING HBO; HIGH-SPEED INTERNET; FREE LONG DISTANCE USA/CANADA; 40'' SONY HDTV; 2 BLU-RAY DVDS, IPHONE/IPOD DOCK STATION & AND MORE

All Apollo condominiums have their balcony facing the white sand beach of Marco Island, but Apollo 306 is located in the more advanced part of the building toward the beach, which has an unobstructed view of the entire beach. From the private and large balcony, you can see the so beautiful crescent part of the beach (to the right) and the south point of the beach (to the left) where dolphins, pelicans, fishing man (and sometimes manatees) like to go. The two walls each side of the balcony give you more privacy for eating at the balcony table or watching breathtaking sunsets on the Gulf of Mexico, sitting in long chairs.

Also, our condo is on the best floor to have close look to the beach. We are just not too high to see well all that happen on the beach, and just high enough to see the beach even when we are sitting in the living or dining room.

Apollo 306 has been redecorated and refurnished, not only with all the amenities of home, but with all the extras possible for your comfort and enjoyment, including:

1 closed bedroom with king-size bed, new mattress (Feb 2015), sheets supplies, flat screen HDTV with BLU-RAY DVD player, fiber optic cable with PREMIUM CHANNELS & remote, cordless phone, mirror doors, room-darkening window panel and a lot of wood hangers.

1 complete bathroom with new cabinet and sink (new picture to come soon) telephone shower, towels supplies, comfortable bath rug, hair dryer and iron

1 dining room and a fully equipped kitchen with remodeled cabinets, stainless steel appliances (refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, microwave), blender, toaster, coffee maker, dishes, pots, pans, utensils, and all the essential equipment you need for cooking.

1 living room with

- Convertible queen-size sofa and sheets supplies,

- 40' flat screen Sony LCD HDTV with Blu-Ray DVD player, fiber optic cable and remote

- Premium channels including HBO

- Dock for recharging iPhone/iPod from which you can listen stereo music from iPhone/iPod, CD, MP3, USB key or radio.

- Free secured high-speed fiber optic Internet access via WI-FI or cable

- 2 cordless phones with digital answering system

- Free unlimited long distance to the USA and Canada

-We give you access to the outdoor closet (just aside the condo door) for beach supplies (tommy Bahama's beach cart and beach chairs, beach umbrella, cooler, water toys). We also permit you or your child to use some sports items we left in the closet (tennis rackets, child's (or woman's) scooter, roller blade for man, 2 adult helmets), but we don't guarantee they work well nor take any responsibility for injury. The beach towels are in the condo with the other towels supply.

There are coin operated laundry facilities on each floor

It has: high security and maintenance standards, direct access to the beach, huge heated pool, heated spa with jets, workout room with beach and sunset view, two tennis courts, covered gated parking, indoor/outdoor dining restaurant with beach view, shuffleboard table and a bar that was voted best happy hour on the Island.

Marco Island was voted the best island in USA (2014 trip advisor traveler's choice). You can do a lot of activities on the island, including the following that are free or not expensive and often not far away:

-Fish excellent fishes like red snappers, near the Apollo, standing in the Gulf of Mexico, while watching the sunset, sometimes among dolphins (for better results, you need to know how to catch live bait with a net)

-Great shelling (including sand dollars when you go to Sand Dollars Beach);

- Play volley ball on the beach in front of the Marriott;

-Go to a restaurant-movie theater that take orders from your table or seat and serve alcohol;

-Go to other restaurants by walk, bike or boat;

-Rent a kayak (some miles aways) and go to inhabited islands (you have choice among the 10 000 islands from which Marco island belong) for shelling or relaxing on the beach and on your way, having the feeling that you are in the tropic islands so the sand is white and the sea emerald;

-Take the car toward Everglade city, looking over a bridge where you can sometimes see manatees and stopping aside a road where you can freely see alligators.

You can also pay more for an Eco tour among the 10 000 islands and the Everglades (in boat or jet ski), but for watching dolphins, they will first stop near the Apollo. And for great shelling, the south point of the Marco beach, near the Apollo, can be almost as generous than Cap Romano when you go in low tide, and even more generous when you know our specific secret spots, which we can tell to our guests.

Welcome to Apollo 306 !

About Nathalie Berard, Owner and manager apollo306@hotmail.com

Me and Daniel bought this condo in 2010. I now manage myself almost all the booking with VRBO and now also with Paypal for guests wanting to save the new VRBO Service Fee. Me and Daniel or my parents go to our condos many times a year to be sure all is in order, and to buy new supply items (beach supply, linen, towels ...).

I answer email every days, and accept online reservation/or send paypal bill to guest writing directly to us, before 24 hours.

Why Nathalie Berard, Owner and manager apollo306@hotmail.com chose Florida South Gulf Coast

When we went in Florida to purchase a condo, Apollo was the hotel who come with our flight. We visited a lot of condos including some on the East side of Florida, but we were not able to find something comparable, so our search end where it started, at the Apollo ! We wanted an unit in the center of the building with no other condo obstructing the panoramic view, and we were lucky to be able to have it with Apollo 306.

What makes this condo unique

We never found another beach front complex with weekly rental permitted and all was perfect with this island, building and condo, except the decoration and furniture that we completely changed.

Apollo 306

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great except for the laundry situation, a little inconvenient

Beach equipment provided made it easy so we did not have to take our own.

Owner's Response: Dear guest, I want to thank you, and take the occasion to thank all other guests who took their precious time to write so nice reviews. Sorry again for the days of your stay without laundry machines during the update. The Apollo Condominiums has now new washers and dryers on each floor of the building. The new machines have the capability of accepting both credit card or coins. With the additional option of allowing credit card usage, this will reduce the frustration of having the proper change to operate the machines. New machines are more efficient and clothes will require less drying time. This will help to reduce the wait time by those needing to use the equipment. Best regards, Nathalie Berard, owner of Apollo 306

So much more than we expected!!!

  • 5 of 5

Let me start off by saying I am a clean freak!! We had no worries here. Everything was spotless. We arrived early to the condo and the cleaners were still there. We waited on the balcony to be out of their way. I thought I was the only one who cleaned like that, very thorough. Normally cleaners will typically run through a condo very quickly, not here. They took their time making sure everything was just so. This started our vacation off on the right note.

Everything you need is in the condo for you. Plenty of towels, kitchen fully stocked and we were very impressed with the beach equipment. I have rented before and you usually get just have two chairs and an umbrella. This condo offered many chairs, two umbrellas, cooler and a myriad of beach toys, helmets, etc.

I would definitely recommend this condo and will gladly rent again in the future.

Thank you Nathalie!!

Beautiful and Clean Condo

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this condo for our honeymoon from October 3rd to the 9th. My family has been coming to Marco Island for years, and this was by far one of the most newly remodeled and clean condos I have ever stayed in. The view was incredible as well. My husband and I love the beach, but we are not really ocean swimmers. So it was wonderful to be able to spend time on the balcony in front of the ocean, then go down to the pool for a swim. Everything we needed for meals, etc was also available in the condo. It was very convenient.

The only issue we had were with the drains, which are the reason I gave a 4 star rating instead of a 5. In the paperwork we received beforehand, it mentioned possibly having to use the provided drain cleaner if the drains were slow. We were not prepared for how bad they were though. I used what was left of the drain cleaner in the kitchen sink on the first day, which seemed to resolve that. By the third day though, the tub was draining so slowly that we had about 3 inches of water at our feet by the time we finished each time. I'm sure we could have had the issue resolved by a maintenance person, but we chose to just deal with it as we only had a few showers left to go. This is by no means a reason not to rent this condo, as the rest of the experience was wonderful. It just may be in the owners best interest to have a bit more drain cleaner available, since it is a known issue.
