About Jim & Heidi

We purchased this property recently to enjoy the warm weather and escape the harsh cold in the midwest. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Jim & Heidi purchased this condo in 2014

Why Jim & Heidi chose Florida South Gulf Coast

It's quiet at the south end of the island, and the beach is central to the day's activities. If you're looking to relax, this is the place for you.

What makes this condo unique

Across from the Gulf, pool, tennis courts, covered parking, washer-dryer, bascially it's home without the stress of your daily life.

Very clean and pleasant place, close to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice place. Updated and well taken care of. Such a convenience to have a full kitchen and a washer/dryer in the unit. The pool was very refreshing, but walk down the street and your at the beach. The storage was filled with lots of accessories for the beach conveniently located in front of your covered parking spot. We had a great time!

The complex and unit were wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 9 nights, Dec. 19-28, 2016. We arrived to a very clean, well organized condo. The owners, Jim & Heidi, had a 3 ring binder with all information needed about the condo and Marco Island area restaurants & attractions. We followed instructions for turning on the unit's water and AC but noticed after our first night that the AC was not putting out cold air. We contacted Jim & Heidi and they were absolutely fantastic in their prompt attention to getting the AC fixed. This was greatly appreciated!

The kitchen was nice, open, and well stocked with what is needed for cooking, etc.

The bedrooms were nice sized and beds were comfortable. Bathrooms were also nice and all was clean and tidy. The washer and dryer were new it appeared and were great to use.

Another nice part to this condo is the covered parking and storage unit for all items necessary for beach lovers! The location is wonderful for easy access to the beach and we also enjoyed the screened patio.

This was our 5th trip to Marco Island but our 1st time staying at this condo. We would definitely stay here again, in fact, we look forward to returning! 😊򒠼󝌴. We thank Jim and Heidi for the pleasure of renting us their condo and thank them for maintaining such a warm, inviting, & fun home away from home vacation!!!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Marco Island and we couldn't have been happier with our accommodations. There was ample room for all of us and having 2 bathrooms was a huge blessing!! Owner was available to answer any questions and did so in a very timely manner. Stores and restaurants are very accessible by foot as we flew in and didn't have a car. Walk to the beach is quick and easy. Be sure to wear water shoes to the beach as the shells are extremely hard to walk on! Time of year was great as its not the busy season so it's not crowded at all. Condo was clean and well kept. Would definitley recommend this to friends and family.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words. We strive to keep our property up and rely on visitors to let us know if issues arise as well as getting to the property to ensure the details are attended to. We try to keep it as a place we would want to stay at if we were renting, hoping it would therefore be looked upon the same by others.

Owner's Response: We too have rented from others and at times found places to be less than what we had hoped, both in cleanliness and creature comforts. We try hard to keep ours up to date on both. Kudos to our cleaning crew! J&H Cole
