Clean Unit, Great View, can't go wrong

  • 5 of 5

Condo is as advertised, very clean and complete with all necessities and more. The south, north and sunset views from the balcony are amazing!! Beach / water shoes are a great investment. There are tons of shells on the beach which makes is difficult to walk barefoot, however, this is one of the nicest beaches I've seen in Florida, it's huge. Marco Island has some awesome restaurants; Cafe de Marco in Olde Marco was our favourite (steak and seafood), but Almost Famous Mel's was great for BBQ. The condo is in a great location, within walking distance to the main resorts but far enough away to avoid the busy crowds. Everything was really convenient (ie picking up keys, parking, check-in, pool / beach access). It was my first time renting "owner direct" and we're certainly glad we did. There is no way a hotel could offer this type of value (full kitchen and the closet full of beach accessories came in handy). Check out the everglades and some of the trails but make sure to cake on the bug spray this time of year!!! All in all, this was a great get away that wouldn't have been the same had we stayed elsewhere!!

Spectacular view

  • 4 of 5

Unit was very clean, balcony was really nice. Beach access is wonderful. The Sunset Grille restaurant was very good and oh so convenient. The young man at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. The kitchen has been updated (need new pictures). So nice that there was an umbrella and beach chairs for our use. Would definitely stay here again!

Not enough comfortable seating in the living room. Wish the outdoor furn. was better

  • 3 of 5

A lot of locks, keys, combo commotion. Appreciated the security but lots of locks to deal with. Our unit was clean overall but needed some serious updating/maintenance attention. The bedroom tv never worked the entire week we were there. Best things about it were the view and sunsets. Loved the beach and all the excersize we got. We thought the accommodations would reflect the cost. Too costly in our opinion. Staff at Appollo were all friendly and helpful.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, this is the first time we are hearing issues about the keys we have been renting our unit for over 15 years. I am a bit confused on the key/locks ? All renters pick up the condo keys from a lockbox, this process is used by all rental companies on the island. There are only 3 keys for the condo, 1 for the main entrance to the building, 1 for the unit itself and 1 for the beach supply closet. Unfortunately this cannot be changed, but I do apologies that it was a lot for you to deal with during your stay. Both the kitchen and the bathroom have been updated about a year ago, we have had nothing but rave reviews about the changes that have been made. As for the TV not working all week, I do apologies but all our renters before arriving receive our home number, cell number and email. We specifically tell all renters if you have any issues or concerns during your stay to contact us immediately so we can deal with any issues that arise. During your entire week stay we did not hear from you about the TV not working so we were of course not able to have that issue taken care of for you. But I appreciate you letting us know as we will repair TV now before the next renter arrives. Jenny and Claudio

Great place, location, wonderful view of the Gulf

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year to stay here and what a nice relaxing condo. Well furnished and very comfortable. We will probably stay longer next year! We also enjoyed the exercise room, swimming pool and easy access to the wonderful beach. Good security. Claude and Sabina have a great condo.
