Overview

About the property

Sunset House is an aptly-named Art Deco style, low-density building on beautiful Marco Island. This cozy studio offers you a 3rd floor view of the beach, Gulf of Mexico, and some of the most beautiful sunsets you will ever see.

Unit amenities include in-unit Wi-Fi, a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, living room with a flatscreen HDTV, Queen size Murphy bed, and bathroom. The walk-out balcony has a padded chaise lounge, 2 comfortable chairs and table. Bed linen, bath and beach towels, beach chairs, coolers and a beach umbrella are provided for your use and enjoyment. You also have two "beach cruiser" bikes for a morning ride, exploring the island by day or restaurant transportation in the evening. It's an easy ride to Old Marco where you will find many nice restaurants, shopping and other attractions.

Building amenities include a large, heated swimming pool, sun deck, secure private beach access, outdoor gas barbecue and picnic area. The beautiful club room has Wi-Fi Internet, a 52" Sony flatscreen TV, and book and movie library. Laundry facilities are conveniently located on each floor. The Sunset House offers assigned covered parking for your vehicle and ample guest parking.

The quiet north-end location gives you walking access to world-famous Tigertail Beach. This 31-acre nature preserve is renowned for bird watching and is ever-changing so you may never fully explore this wonderful SW Florida treasure. At Tigertail Beach you will have the opportunity to rent paddle boards, kayaks, water trikes and beach cabanas. Start your morning with breakfast at the beachside café or relax after a day of fun in the sun with a glass of wine or an ice-cold beer.

If you have never visited Marco Island, this is your opportunity to visit PARADISE and experience the most breathtaking sunsets, sugar sand beaches and warm gulf breezes that will create a lifetime of lasting memories. Do not miss the chance to experience Marco Island, the hidden gem on the Gulf! In 2014, Marco Island was voted #1 Island in the U.S. and #4 in the world by a leading travel review website.

For each booking from May through September I will include two free passes to The Dolphin Explorer Eco tour. This a wonderful opportunity to see the Marco Island area by boat. This is a fun and informative guided tour that provides you with the chance to see dolphin, manatee, bald eagles and other Florida wildlife up close. Schedule your outing on one of Marco Islands many beautiful days and prepare yourself for a unforgettable experience. Don't forget your camera!

About Dan Barrett

I am a native Washingtonian and first traveled to Marco Island after my parents retired there in 1986. I enjoy walking the beach early in the morning. Each year from early May until late August, Loggerhead Turtles swim to the beach to bury their eggs in the sand at night. It is amazing to see their tracks in the sand from the waters edge and back again. I have not been lucky enough to see the baby turtles hatch but I hope to one day. I enjoy golf, fishing, and having a beer on the beautiful beach and watching the sunset.

Dan Barrett purchased this condo in 2014

Why Dan Barrett chose Florida South Gulf Coast

The condo is very comfortable and cozy. I have tried to provide the necessary items to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The Sunset House is low density so the heated pool is never crowded like other buildings. The beach is awesome and the water is refreshing. Biking the island is my favorite way around. It is an easy ride to Old Marco where you will find many nice restaurants and shopping.

What makes this condo unique

Winters on Marco Island are very nice. The summertime is my favorite time of year on Marco. It feels like you have the whole island to yourself.

Most people would never consider spending anytime in Florida in the summer. While living in the Washington D.C. area most of my life, I spent my summers on the Delaware Shore and Ocean City, Maryland. I remember blistering heat and sometimes the sand was so hot you had to run across the crowded beach to your small patch of sand. If you wanted a spot close to the water you would have to bring all your stuff down to the beach by 7:00am. I have been on the beach many times on Marco in the summer and the nearest person to me is 50 yards away. There is usually a nice breeze and the sand is white so it does not get as hot like the coarse, brown sand on the Atlantic coast beaches.

Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

Our apartment at Sunset House exceeded our expectations! The apartment was situated on the third floor with views of the beach and ocean and was just perfect! We often ate our breakfast on the balcony which was a great way to get our day started! The swimming pool was pristine and the apartment is well furnished with all the extras. Our host Dan always went the extra mile to ensure we had all that we needed.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

There was absolutely nothing more that could be provided: linens, towels, beach chairs, umbrellas, fishing poles, tennis rackets, paper goods, bicycles, and much more. The unit was spotless, extremely well maintained, and had a spacious deck looking out over the gulf. The owner is onsite and always available. We are fortunate to have stayed on Marco the past eight years, and, in our opinion, this is the best equipped rental that we have rented. Building is beautiful, extremely well maintained, great pool and social room.

A perfect place to stay for a relaxing vacation.

  • 4 of 5

The condo is accurately described by the owner. It has beautiful views of the Gulf of Mexico and lush landscaping. The unit has everything you will need for the kitchen: pots, pans, microwave, utensils. The owner provides towels and bedding linens. The building itself has a lovely pool and access to the beach. The recreation room has wifi and a library of books and videos which you can borrow during your stay. The location of the building is close to all your shopping needs and restaurants. The property is well maintained and the owner is available to call if you should need help.

I recommend this property.
