Overview

About the property

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, 18 yo Jake and 16 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 Florida South Gulf Coast

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!! Very relaxing time.

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time. Condo was just what we were looking for. It had everything we needed, as well as gorgeous views and sunsets. Watched dolphins every day. We will definitely consider this condo if we return to Marco in the future and it is still being rented out. Thanks for the privilege of staying in your condo!

Best unit so far

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th time at the Apollo and this was absolutely the best unit so far. It is very clean and comfortable. We had everything we needed. We decided to pay a little more(not much) for the top floor and were glad we did. On lower floors we had noisy renters upstairs, not as nice a view and smells from the restaurant-not always a bad thing. The owners were very responsive to our needs and questions. We have found our 'go to' place at the Apollo #1003

It is all about the view!!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful view off the oversized deck. If you are here for oceanfront condo, this is it!!! This vacation rental was wonderful. Dealing with the owners were great... Through answering questions about the unit through the check out process. They really care how their vacationers enjoyed their home and our comments. The unit was very clean and well stocked with the essentials. Beach chairs, umbrellas, and coolers are in a closet to use. There is a restaurant on the first level, which had their separate entry. Very nice for having lunch, dinner, appetizers and especially drinks. Pool and hot tub are on the side of the building. I would say it is mostly in the shade, good to cool down from being in the sun by the ocean. This is a great place for a couple ( King Bed) and maybe 1 or 2 small children (pull out couch). Love Marco Island and would surely stay hear again.!

very nice

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay. The condo was one of the nicest units that I have rented. I come to Marco Island on business, and have rented units at the Apollo before. The owners are gracious and very responsive to questions. I highly recommend this unit. I will be pleased to rent from them again.

well done

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at the Apollo several times. I always enjoy the condos there. This condo was probably the most well maintained of the condos I have rented. Owners were very prompt in answering my questions. Very courteous. Would love to rent from them again.
