Also, our condo is on the best floor to have close look to the beach. We are just not too high to see well all that happen on the beach, and just high enough to see the beach even when we are sitting in the living or dining room.

1 closed bedroom with king-size bed, sheets supplies, flat screen HDTV with DVD player, cable & remote, cordless phone, mirror doors, room-darkening window panel and a lot of wood hangers.

-We give you access to the outdoor closet (just aside the condo door) for beach supplies (tommy Bahama's beach cart and beach chairs, beach umbrella, rolling cooler, water toys). We also permit you or your child to use some sports items we left in the closet (tennis rackets, child's (or woman's) scooter, roller blade for man, 2 adult helmets), but we don't guarantee they work well nor take any responsibility for injury. The beach towels are in the condo with the other towels supply.

Apollo is a great complex with: high security and maintenance standards, direct access to the beach, huge heated pool, heated spa with jets, workout room with beach and sunset view, two tennis courts, free covered parking, indoor/outdoor dining restaurant with beach view, pool/snooker tables and a bar that was voted best happy hour on the Island.
Marco Island was voted one of the 5 most beautiful little towns in all the USA (USA today). You can do a lot of activities on the island, including the following that are free or not expensive and often not far away:
-Fish excellent fishes like red snappers, near the Apollo, standing in the Gulf of Mexico, while watching the sunset, sometimes among dolphins (for better results, you need to know how to catch live bait with a net)
-Great shelling (including sand dollars when you go to Sand Dollars Beach);
- Play volley ball on the beach in front of the Marriott;
-Go to a restaurant-movie theater that take orders from your seat and serve alcohol;
-Go to other restaurants by walk, bike or boat;
-Rent a kayak (some miles aways) and go to inhabited islands (you have choice among the 10 000 islands from which Marco island belong) for shelling or relaxing on the beach and on your way, having the feeling that you are in the tropic islands so the sand is white and the sea emerald;
-Take the car toward Everglade city, looking over a bridge where you can sometimes see manatees and stopping aside a road where you can freely see alligators.
You can also pay more for an Eco tour among the 10 000 islands and the Everglades (in boat or jet ski), but for watching dolphins, they will first stop near the Apollo. And for great shelling, the south point of the Marco beach, near the Apollo, can be almost as generous than Cap Romano when you go in low tide, and even more generous when you know our specific secret spots, which we can tell to our guests.
