Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in City of Marco - Marco Island Paradise

One bedroom Gulf front condo with Gulf and sunset views. Sleeps 4

The Apollo is one of the nicest buildings on Marco Island. It is a well-kept building with a friendly atmosphere. Security is given high priority and there is a rolling program of maintenance and a manager's office on site which keeps standards up. With no road between the building and the beach, the only thing keeping you from sinking your toes in the white sand is a visit to the privately owned restaurant and bar located in the complex.

Your stay at the Apollo includes air conditioning and access to elevators, laundry facilities, a swimming pool and hot tub, tennis courts, and covered parking. The beach is fairly firm for walking, consisting of tiny fragments of shell. Shell collecting and beach walking are popular pastimes among guests at the Apollo.

A local rental company will take care of you throughout your stay.

Marco Beach is a place to fall in love with. From your balcony, you look out on to a fabulous three and a half mile beach with access via a short boardwalk over protected seagrass. If you choose to stay within the comforts of your unit, you can sit on the included chairs and table and still see the beach with pelicans and seabirds flying above, dolphins hanging around in the gulf, and in season turtles that come ashore in the moonlight to lay their eggs. A spectacular sunset over the water can be seen every night from your west facing balcony.

Off season rentals require at least a check in or check out day to be a Saturday.

About Dave & Angela Barth

My wife and I first found and fell in love with Marco Island while driving around Florida in 1993. Back then all we could do was dream we might get back there someday. In April of 2014 we stayed in the Apollo for our 25th anniversary trip. Well, we still loved it and in December we returned and bought a little piece of paradise... unit 1003 in The Apollo. I am a fire fighter and my wife is a teacher in New Jersey. We have 2 children, 16 yo Jake and 14 yo Rachel. In a few short years the kids will be off to college and we will be retired in Marco Island, until then we are fortunate enough to be able to share Marco Island with our family and friends and our friends we don't know yet. 'You can't make old friends.'

Dave & Angela Barth purchased this condo in 2015

Why Dave & Angela Barth chose Marco Island

Location, location, location. The Apollo offers everything the vacationing couple or small family could want. Everything in the complex is conveniently located. Short walk to the beach, pool, hot tub, fitness center, tennis, laundry and on-site bar/restaurant. Pride in ownership resounds throughout the building.

Located in the desirable South Marco area, access to restaurants and other conveniences is easy.

What makes this condo unique

The Sunset Grille is on the first floor for snacks, dinner or drinks. Apollo is one of the few beach front buildings with weekly rentals available on Marco Island.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Perfect, cozy spot for a getaway for us. Walk to beach, restaurant. The unit 1003 was very nice. We had pretty much everything we needed for our stay. We only had to purchase personal care items, laundry detergent, TP etc which we expected per the listing. Owners pay attention to detail. Will book again.

Excellent vacation!

  • 4 of 5

It was very clean and convienent. The view of the ocean is breath taking. Snorkled every morning and happen to have four wild dolphins swim by me, awesome! Many restaurants with excellent food and little stores near by to do a little shopping. Definitely the best place to just relax and enjoy life! No complaints at all, just good living! We will definitely be going back!

Back at the Apollo

  • 5 of 5

Everything was excellent at the 10th FL Condo, all the amenities were as described. The unit was very clean, the bed was very comfortable. Despite the heatwave outside the AC kept us very comfortable. The deck afforded great views of the gulf and beach. Although Marco Island is famous for its beautiful sunsets, it was the spectacular cloud formations that got my attention. We will certainly stay there again.

Gorgeous Sunsets

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect! The condo has everything you need and is in a perfect location. From beach visits to pool visits...perfect!! Having the restaurant on site is the icing on the cake. A little updating on furniture would take it up a notch, but does not take away from the experience. Would stay there again in an instant. The owners were responsive to any questions. I ask a lot of questions😆򑠮

Wonderful location and condo!

  • 5 of 5

The Apollo is a friendly and small complex. The Sunset Grille restaurant is an asset to the condo. The covered parking was nice as the temps were high! Unit 1003 was fully equipped, we did not want for anything. Breakfast and lunch were eaten at the condo to best enjoy the beach and views. Many choices nearby for dinner out or shopping if you wish.

The local birds, sea turtles, manatee's dolphins and rays were a joy to watch. We saw all, every day. We had perfect weather and a very calm sea. The unit has beach chairs and an umbrella that made reading at the beach all the better! The balcony was perfect for lazing away the day or watching sunsets in the evening. There was a full moon, so night was also spectacular with the moon over the sea.

Very comfortable and clean

  • 5 of 5

Unit #1003 was perfect for our relaxing vacation. It was well equipped. It was nice being on the top floor for the view and to not have any people above us that could be noisy. Highly recommend

Excellent View & Room for the Price!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Barth's condo from May 14-21, 2016. As advertised, the condo was small, but, clean, comfortable and with an incredible ocean view from the 10th story balcony. We spent a few nights hanging out on the balcony watching the spectacular sunsets over the Gulf before heading out for dinner.

The king bed was comfortable and we slept well. The kitchen was fully stocked - as was the closet containing just about everything you need for the beach: two very nice reclining chairs, large umbrella, fishing gear and buckets & shovels.

We spent most of our days on the beach and were lucky enough to see a group of manatee swimming south along the ocean, just 50 yards or so from the edge of the water. Dolphins frequently were further out, jumping high enough that their entire bodies were out of the water - if you happen to be in the ocean at that time, you could hear the slap as they came back down.

Restaurants we visited and give high marks to: Da Vinci's - great Italian food and beautiful outdoor setting in Marco Walk; The Apollo's own Sunset Grille - great food and great sunset view; Nacho Mama's - very good Mexican food and great outdoor seating at the Marco Walk; Mango's Dockside Bistro for apps & drinks; Kretch's; Marco Polo - excellent upscale dining with a cool little lounge area and fantastic entertainment from the singer who sang about any song you requested - and the owners both spent time talking to us as we are planning to revisit the island in October and get married there.

As for the condo owners - when we had a question on the WIFI, Dave called back right away and walked us through it and got us on track. Every email/call was answered promptly. A follow-up, hand-written letter further proved that the owners cared about your stay and wanted to make you happy.

Long story short, if you are planning a trip to Marco Island, and you want great views and a clean, comfortable place that doesn't break the budget, stay here.
