A leading rental agent manages our very popular apartment, but please e-mail the owner first. Our charming and well-maintained condo with its spectacular views is very popular with couples. Many return repeatedly to our cherished holiday home.
This is a standard Apollo apartment which takes four people but we restrict occupation to two to add comfort and reduce wear and tear and so can offer low rental rates.
Sleep in the new Sealy Posturepedic king-size bed in a delightfully furnished bedroom with wall-mounted flat sceen TV. Relax on cushioned recliners and cushioned dining chairs on our private double size beachfront balcony with its sunset viewing chairs, dining table and tilting umbrella. In the tiled and mirrored living area, enjoy a recently refurbished, small but well-equipped and screened kitchen (with recently renewed appliances and granite worktop) quality china, new queen sofa bed and rocking armchairs, numerous books, iPod speaker, 48 inch LED TV with HD cable/blu-ray, and DVD player + DVDs.
The apartment has good linens and Ralph Lauren towels. There is an answering machine and free broadband connection (WiFi & Ethernet).
The well-kept complex has air-conditioning, lifts, laundry facilities, a swimming pool, hot tub, tennis courts, security and covered parking. A local rental company takes care of you throughout your stay.Free exit clean.
The beach is fairly firm for walking, consisting of tiny fragments of shell. Shelling and beach walking are popular pastimes. A wide variety of sports is close at hand.
Marco Beach is a place to fall in love with. From the condo you look out on to a fabulous three and a half mile beach with access via a boardwalk over protected seagrass. There are pelicans and seabirds flying around, dolphins make their lazy way across the bay and in season turtles come ashore in the moonlight to lay their eggs, The sunsets are spectacular as the building faces West and the condo balcony offers sunset viewing chairs.
The island is about 6 miles by 4 miles, accessed by two bridges. It is relaxed and charming with plenty of amenities (supermarkets, restaurants, shops, urgent care center, medical facilities etc). It is sufficiently far south to offer a wonderful climate and year-round sunshine. It is about 20 minutes from Naples which is a charming, sophisticated and affluent town, with shopping malls, hospitals etc. The Everglades are very close to the island and can be explored easily as can a number of nature reserves. Day trips to Key West are also possible. There are numerous golf courses within easy driving distance of the Apollo and the whole area is a golfer's paradise. Fishermen and those who enjoy boating love the island.
We have owned our condominium from the time it was built and have given service to the condominium residents' Board. It is a well-kept building with a friendly atmosphere. Security is given high priority and there is a rolling program of maintenance which keeps standards up. There is a manager's office on site. There is also a privately owned restaurant in the complex. The location is spectacular and there is no road between the building and the beach, just protected sea grass with a board walk out to the beach.
We fell in love with Marco Island on our first visit and immediately placed a deposit on an Apollo apartment. We have never wavered in our love for Marco and the Apollo. We are a British married couple and love to escape to the 'Paradise Island' that is Marco. Days stretch out to a proper length instead of flying past and the island rhythm of life is soothing.
e-mail owners: Barbara and David purchased this condo in 1990
We love the location and the building with its facilities. Our extra large balcony is a huge plus - enough room for cushioned recliners and side tables, dining table and umbrella and comfortable dining chairs, also sunset viewing chairs.
The relaxing atmosphere of Marco island and the wonderful location of the Apollo with its beach access, security, covered parking, tennis courts,pool and hot tub, exercise room etc.

#209 is just perfect! Very clean well kept and comfortable. Would love to make this an annual visit!
This is one of the best winter vacation decisions we've ever made. The owner of the property was very considerate in dealing with us. The quality of the property was up to its description, the staff was great, the restaurant was quite good, and the beach was wonderful. We liked the community. The cost of food in the local grocery stores was much more reasonable than we had expected.
This condo is a great value in a location where such things are very difficult to find.
My husband & I was looking for a romantic place to go for our ten year wedding anniversary and I stumbled on this place. It was the only week that was available for the dates we were interested. We arrived really early on the morning just as the sun was rising and it was breathtaking from that moment on. The king size bed was wonderful and plenty of room to move around. The bathroom was fully stocked of all the linens that were needed for the week. The kitchen had all you needed from coffee pot to blender to toaster. The place was just a cozy home away from home. Oh and the balcony was a place you wanted to be every morning & evening. It had as much room as a small bedroom. The view was amazing. My husband & I only stayed in the condo to sleep and enjoy the beautiful view. There is a bar & grill down stairs called the Sunset Grill. Great place because you can just walk from the beach grab a drink and off back to the beach. The pool & hot tub came in handy after our long drive from Fort Worth Texas. Everything was well maintained including the whole island. We have never been so impressed with a vacation rental location. The beach had millions of sea shells that we brought back a grocery bag full home. Beautiful white sand beaches. The only bad thing was the sea turtles were nesting and hatching and we were kicked out of the pool @ 9 as well as the beach but I totally understand why. This location has all you need and more. Everything was close & priced reasonably. It was like being on your own private resort island. The time frame we requested was also the islands down time but to us it was perfect because it was not busy and that is what we were looking for. Thank you so much for letting us be apart of your wonderful condo.
The unit waswell equipped, comfortable and as promised a great time. the weather held out to be just beautiful , and all the eateries were all good. The island was just the right size to explore . This was the first visit for us to Marco Island , as we vacationed in the Clearwater/ Hudson Florida region for many years, this address just is more enjoyable and has the feel of real Florida.. You will like this condo.....
My husband and I surprised our son and his new wife with a honeymoon trip. Trying to stay within budget and finding that right beautiful place online, this was it. When they arrived, they were in ah of their condo. They said, the place was as beautiful as we saw it on the internet. They spent every evening watching a beautiful sunset on their large private patio. This place is a gem. Not only are you right on the beach, but all the accomodations were perfect, especially having the grill in the same building. My son, Ronnie and his wife, Amanda, are hoping to go back for their first year anniversary. Thank you Apollo for taking great care of our angels. They have beautiful memories of your beautiful place.
My husband and I just returned from our honeymoon at Apollo 209 and it was the best week of both of our lives. First of all, Marco Island is the most beautiful place I have ever been in my life. Second, this condo is wonderful, cozy and the view is impeccably amazing. This condo was better than we could've imagined. Dealing with Mrs. Greggains was a wonderful experience. If anyone is having any hesitation about renting this unit, stop hesitating and book now. You will not be sorry. We look forward to staying here next year for our first anniversary.
We loved our first visit to Marco and this Condo. Both it and the Apollo are very clean and well maintained. We loved the perfect view, sunsets, cooking for ourselves, easy access to ocean, and lovely walks on the beach. Comfortable for two. Lots of beach supplies, deck dining, and lounges...couldn't have asked for more. Excellent value. Thanks for the internet and IPod docking station. We had nice dinner at Quinn's...sunset and all. Yum!
Marco Island is the biggest of the 10,000 islands in the Everglades area. It connects to the mainland by two bridges, and once over either bridge, you feel yourself entering a beautiful, peaceful, island paradise.. There are golf courses aplenty on the mainland and sophisticated Naples is a short drive away. Fort Myers Airport is about 1 hr away and Miami Airport is about 2 hrs away. There are 2 million acres of unspoiled land on the mainland including numerous nature sanctuaries like Everglades National Park, Rookery Bay, Audubon Corkscrew Swamp and Big Cypress National Preserve. It is possible to fly or sail to Key West for a day trip if desired.
