When we arrived at the condo Saturday evening the guard gave us the parking pass. When I ask where we were to go to get the condo key he said they were provided by the manager and not the Somerset property and it didn't make any difference since the property offices were closed on the weekends No where in our instructions was there any mention about this. We were now standing outside the condo with no way to get in. The guard knew our plight and made some telephone calls. After a delay the guard was able to use a master key to let us into our unit. Laying on the counter of the unit were the keys. I put a call into Cara Mahoney on Sunday since were were still missing some of the 2nd set of keys. We played phone tag for two days before we finally talked. I told what happened and that we were in better shape now but thought we were missing some keys. She did not question my comment just said she would get it handled. She did not apologize for the lack of communication by her or by the inconvenience to us.

Regarding the condo, we found unit and the furnishings to be quite nice. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils. The bedrooms and living room were clean and comfortable. The only problem we encountered was the sliding glass door from the living room to the balcony. Either the track or the rollers were so corroded you couldn't open it without great difficulty. We ended up using the door from the master bedroom to get to the balcony.

By mid week of our stay Cara rang our door bell. We didn't hear the first rings and when my sister-in-law answered the door Cara seemed preturbed and said "doesn't your doorbell work?" She then handed the last key to us, told us to put it on the key ring and left. Once again, no apology , no I'm sorry it took so long, nothing.

Because we go on vacation to relax we don't cook, we eat out. The only time we use the kitchen is to make coffee or to use the microwave to reheat leftovers. This is why we were surprised that Cara notified us after we checked out that they were charging us $100 for damage to the stovetop. She said had to have someone come in and fix the scratches. When I wrote her back and complained that we didn't hurt the stovetop because we didn't cook on it she sent photos support her claim. There is no way we did this. When I ask her for the invoice copy she sent us one dated the day I ask her for it. That is strange!

We will come back but not if she's the manager.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, I am happy you liked our unit. It is a beautiful one. Thank you for staying in our unit. I would not have charged you to clean the cook top if there was not a need to. If you did not eat in the unit why were there dishes in the dishwasher and a pizza pan in the sink when we arrived. I'm sure whatever happened was a mistake but we had to have it professionally cleaned and buffed out. It was scratched beyond the normal wear and tear. Maybe you did not notice it but I have sent you pictures. and I am quite certain it was not like that when you arrived. I'm sure you would have reported it.

Wonderful location, beautiful view!

  • 4 of 5

The location is superb! The view from the balcony is stunning. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it is a bit outdated and the doors and screens need to be replaced. If these things don't bother you, you will love it!

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

Two couples stayed, this is one of the few properties we found that had two king beds. Unit was very clean, great ocean view from the balcony. We spent many mornings just enjoying the view from there. Unit had beach chairs, cooler, ice maker, everything we needed to prep for a day on the beach. We took advantage of the A Carr taxi service quite a bit that has free rides to a number of restaurants on the island. Jungle Erv's was a great airboat ride in Everglades City, about 30 minutes away by car. Lots (millions) of shells on the beach so it's not the best for "laying" - but chairs were fine. A decent number of restaurants within walking distance too - Sunset Grill, Marco Prime, DaVinci's - we had good meals at all of them. The pool was great too - perfect temperatures all week helped (first week of November). All in all, a fantastic vacation that we were not happy about leaving. I have nothing bad at all to say about this unit. I'd definitely rent it again.

Wonderful condo right on the beach @ Marco Island. Had a great week with spouse, daughter, son-in-law, and granddaughter. We enjoyed walking the beach, shelling, relaxing in the sun, and swimming in the well kept pool. This property is first rate and the grounds are lovely and secure. Would highly recommend for couples and families with young children.

All I can say is WOW!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I love Marco Island and have been a regular island visitor. I often stay at the Marriott. My stay in this unit was fabulous and exceeded my expectations. This unit is so much nicer than others in the building. I was also happy with the 2 master bedrooms with king sized beds. This unit will be at the top of my list for future visits! It has all of the comforts of home, but you are on VACATION!!!!!

Walking distance to great restaurants and bars. A one of a kind movie theater that runs first rate movies and serves food, beer and wine. Around the corner is a great little miniature golf course. Spend the whole week at the beach wave riding, parasailing, volleyball and many more beach activities. Just a short drive to the Florida Everglades.
