About John Ball

We have lived on Marco Island since 2012, and love to call this island paradise home. Originally we hail from Minnesota, and still go back in the summer to visit family and friends. There is a lot to love about Marco. We enjoy the community, boating, weather, beaches, and laid back atmosphere of the island. We currently have our kids enrolled in the local schools on the island and I am a practicing realtor. I have over 20 years experience in property management and selling real estate in MN and Marco so if you any questions, ask away!

John Ball purchased this condo in 2014

Why John Ball chose Florida South Gulf Coast

Living on the island several friends have always talked about the location of this condo and how great it is. It truly is a unique building is a amazing location. When the unit came available it had great bones but needed updating, which we love to do, a match made in paradise!

What makes this condo unique

Location, Location, Location. We are looking forward to vacationers, family, and close friends enjoying this wonderful place for years to come. The decorating is classy and timeless.

Clean, modern and exactly as pictured. Location, location, location - perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time in Marco. This condo is exactly as pictured and is very clean, modern and has everything you need from the kitchen to the beach. It has a beautiful lanai to sit out on in the morning or evening for breakfast or a cocktail. John the owner was wonderful from start to finish. We would definitely rent this condo again. The location is directly across from the beach access and in walking distance to everything. I would definitely recommend this condo to anyone with a small family. Loved it! Thank you John.

We had a wonderful weeks stay in this condo. The location is great.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our week in this condo very much. It is spacious for the two of us. The kitchen was very well stocked and updated. The living area and bedroom and bath were all ver comfortable. The beach chairs came in very handy. The location is just across the street from public beach access. The only disappointment was that the instructions were to keep the AC at 74 or higher. We thought 74 would be just fine but it was not enough to take out the humidity and at night it was a bit warm. If the AC was able to be set where we were comfortable, we would have given the place 5 stars. We enjoyed walks on the beach, reading on the beach and poolside, all the restaurants. And we enjoyed sailing on the Hobbie Cat right off the beach.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review, we always strive for our guests to have a wonderful experience. As always in the future please email or call me directly any questions or concerns. The instructions in the manual for keeping the thermostat at 74 degrees was meant to be a guide. Thank you, John

One bedroom condo on South Collier, Marco Island

  • 4 of 5

We spent 7 beautiful days on Marco Island and stayed in this very lovely one bedroom condo which was well equipped with full kitchen appliances/cooking pots & pans, dishes, glasses, utensils, toaster, coffee makers, comfortable living room with big screen tv, WiFi, plus a covered porch, swimming pool, tennis court and an outside grill. Great restaurants & grocery/liquor stores were near by and beach access was just across the street. The owner was very friendly and the rental rate was reasonable/market competitive. If our travels bring us back to Marco Island we will most likely rent this condo again! Great location and very clean.

Very nice condo and complex right across from the beach

  • 5 of 5

This condo is in a 56 unit complex right across the street from only one of three public beach access points. That makes it highly desirable, as no need to walk long blocks or drive and park at the public parking near the beach access. The unit has been remodeled and is plenty large for a couple and maybe two kids on the sofa sleeper. It has a large outside lanai that faces the public entrance to the beach at the second floor level. The owner provides two nice beach chairs and umbrella, one small and one large cooler, and two tennis rackets and sleeve of balls. The remodeling was done very well and the unit was exceptionally clean. No bugs were ever seen for our two week stay inside or out. The complex has a very nice and sufficiently large heated pool and very good quality tennis courts. A large char broil outside grill is available and covered and non covered patio dining area between the pool and tennis court. A bike rack is also on property. A very quiet complex and great location for beach access. The complex reality management person is onsite half days and is very helpful for any questions about Marco Island. The office has a large library of donated books to read there or at the beach. All of the people we met at the complex, either living or renting were extremely friendly and made our stay feel like we want to come back. We could not have expected more and highly recommend this unit and complex. The unit owner, John Ball was exceptionally responsive from our initial inquiry to post renting follow up. We were told John did the actual remodeling design and it s was perfect to maximize the available space and it seemed larger than the 800 sf. John was very open to any questions and gave prompt follow up. Excellent owner! One of the best beaches in Florida and Marco is just a beautiful place!

Lucked out!

  • 5 of 5

This property looked nice online but it wasn't until I got there that I was truly impressed. It has a nice updated modern look and feel and it is an amazing location being directly across from the public access walkway. The owner was very responsive and friendly which was nice as well. I loved every minute of my stay and would absolutely return another time. Thanks!

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was more than what we even imagined. The owners are very thorough before the stay, and make it simple. The condo itself was great - exactly what we needed!
