What makes this condo unique

Fell in love with Marco Island on our first visit with my two sons and my husband.Views from the condo are breathtaking whether it is during the day looking at the dolphins and fish jumping out of the water or the sunsets in the evening right from the lanai.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at the condo from April 1-16, 2011. The owner was very accommodating and allowed us to come in a day earlier at no extra charge and e-mailed us that the people who were to come in on the 16th had a change of plans so we could stay longer. Every effort was made to provide us comfort and enjoyment. It is extremely evident that the condo has been decorated with loving care. Everything is immaculate and everything you could possibly need is provided. All appliances are new and so is the bedroom furniture. The dishes, glassware and cookery are absolutely immaculate.

However, the most important and amazing things of all are:

The sunset from the balcony ….. people come from everywhere and watch. When the sun disappears beyond the horizon everyone claps. It is so moving!

When the tide is high ….. (for us it was early morning) you can sit in the condo or better yet on the balcony and watch the dolphins diving for fish and playing.

The ocean, beach and shells are right out your door. Chairs, noodles and umbrellas are provided by the owner. You do not have to pack the car, drive and then drag everything to the nearest public beach.

The pool is perfect when you’ve have enough sun and still want to be outdoors, in shade, and have access to water.

The restaurant, located within Apollo has excellent lunches and dinners with reasonable prices. They also willingly and pleasantly provide you with quarters for the washer and drier when the exchange machine is down.

Most of all, not only is this location one of the best on the island, EVERYONE we came in contact with was exceeding friendly and informative.



Oh, by the way, we have already taken March 17-31, 2012. Sorry!

Comfortable Condo

  • 4 of 5

This condo is not sleek and modern but is comfortable and cozy. The view of the beach and ocean is spectacular. We were there for two weeks and enjoyed our stay.

Alles perfekt.

  • 5 of 5

Der Kontakt zu Barbara lief von Anfang an problemlos. Auf meine erste Anfrage erhielt ich innerhalb weniger Stunden eine Antwort. Die Bezahlung über VRBO verlief ebenfalls korrekt.

Die Wohnung liegt wunderschön und war sauber. Die Küche ist voll ausgestattet. Für den Strand gibt Sonnenschirme, Strandhandtücher, Stühle und eine Kühlbox. Die Wohnung war wie von Barbara beschrieben. Auf den Fotos wirkt sie sogar etwas kleiner. Da der Balkon am morgen noch keine direkte Sonneneinstrahlung hat, kann man hier frühstücken und den Blick aufs Meer genießen. Abends dann die herrlichen Sonnenuntergänge. Zum einkaufen sind wir immer in den Publix gefahren. Er ist ca. 5 Minunten entfernt.

Es hat alles gepasst, eine klare Weiterempfehlung.

Vielen Dank Barbara

A magical place with a gracious host and a beautiful condo!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Apollo was amazing. The view from the condo to the beach is breathtaking at all times, but is truly magical for sunsets. The condo is clean and tidy with everything you would need to make your time at Marco perfect. From the assigned covered parking, friendly front desk staff to the lovely pool and very short stroll to the beach it's a great place to stay. Positioned at the southern end of the island, the beach is plenty wide during both low and high. While the shelling is plentiful everywhere along Marco, there's a great spot for unique finds as the beach turns around the southern point just about 100 yards or so south of Apollo. We watched Manatee play in the surf and were visited by a small nurse shark during our stay. While we didn't see any dolphin in the Gulf, we did enjoy them while dining dockside at Snook Inn (dined twice here, as we couldn't resist the ALL YOU CAN EAT steamed shrimp on Tuesday). We also had a "Can't Miss" breakfast at NeNe's. I can't say enough nice things about Barbara, the Apollo and Marco Island. It was a perfect getaway with my wife and we will absolutely be back to get our Ocean Fix in the future! Thanks Barbara and we'll be in touch to book again soon!

We loved our amazing view and felt so welcomed.

  • 5 of 5

First of all, I would like to start by saying that pictures don't do this place justice. If I had any suggestions, it would be to get a professional to come in to take pictures. It was so nice and clean, most importantly. Barbara had everything we could have possibly needed for our stay. The view was absolutely breathtaking and we sat on the balcony almost every night to watch sunset. Next time we return to Marco, we will definitely be staying here again. Thank you, Barbara for everything! The condo made our trip absolutely perfect.

Wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

Barbara was an excellent host. The condo was lovely and a perfect place to relax. My husband and I have been to Barbara's condo before and we will come again. The complex is clean and the views are breathtaking. The sunset grill was an excellent place for drinks and dinner. I loved to bring drinks from the sunset grill to the beach too. See you again next year!
