We stayed a week at the Apartment at the beginning of August and found it perfect for our needs in an amazing location with wonderful views.
The lovely combined sitting room and kitchen included everything one could possibly imagine needing in a place to stay. The kitchen had a full range of the necessary items: oven, microwave other electronic products, crockery and cutlery which made for an easy and comfortable stay. The table had four chairs and there was a settee and comfortable chair. Excellent.
The balcony, or lanai, is as wide as the main room and has two comfortable chairs and a table with four chairs. It provides wonderful views over the wide sands of South Marco Beach and a view of the Gulf of Mexico which includes a wonderful sunset view as the sun goes down straight ahead, as well as excellent views at every time of the day.
The bathroom also had all the necessary requirements and the bath included a comfortable shower with a flexible showerhead, something that is less common in the USA than it is back home in Europe. The bedroom has a king size bed and plenty of space to hang clothes.
The location is perfect for watching people on the beach, and for easy access to the beach for ourselves.
The washing and drying facilities were just outside the front of the apartment and were very simple to use.
We found the reception staff, especially Robbie, very welcoming and caring for our every need.
All my experiences here were positive. I have nothing negative to say about the place, which was wonderful in its own right as well as giving easy access to everything that Marco Island had to offer.
Marco Island itself is as peaceful and calm a place as I have ever found in the USA. People can walk and cycle and make the most of the sea which is all around the island. There are lots of places for great food and every moment of the day is an opportunity to relax or enjoy the excitement of alligators in the everglades or dolphins on the 10,000 island tours.
very nice condo, small but bigger then hotel rooms, very clean and has all the amenities ,nice linens and all the beach gear too, safe and secure and nicely renovated, cant beat the view. only bad part is the pool is load with kids.direct beach acess and bar/ restaurant downstairs.

This unit is updated just as the pictures indicated. You wont find any "surprises" like we've had in the past! Not so here. It was very clean, I couldn't have done a better job myself. We had NICE beach towels, not those worn out, cheap ones. A REAL cooler for beach use, (we've found those Styrofoam ones with other rentals, you know them, the ones that the lids blow off of and the handles break).
AND, Nathalie was super to work with. We had a small incident with a chair and we were more than happy to replace it. She offered to reimburse us, which we totally did not expect! We've been to Marco Island six times in four years and we'd definately rent this unit again. You won't be disappointed!

As soon as we walked into the condo we both said "WOW!". Definitely the best view I've ever had in any place I've ever stayed. Very comfortable and nicely furnished. The bed was incredibly comfy. The complex was very nice as was the Sunset Grille located on property. Being just steps to the beach was also a big plus along with all the beach items that came with the condo.
We are long time Marco vacationers. We have always stayed in this area of Marco. First time guests of this owner, we were very pleased with the cleanliness of space and condition of supplies. Our relatives stayed in another Apollo unit and were quite disappointed with their place after visiting ours! Very clean, beautiful furnishings, nice bedding (which is imp. to me). A bit small for two adults, teenager and small child. Will def. need two bathrms next time. Overall we like the Apollo, location and view was great.
