About Craig Westerberg

My wife and I are from Minnesota where we currently reside with our two children. My wife has been coming to Marco since she was a young girl. She turned me on to my first taste of paradise here in Marco in 1992 on our honeymoon. We have been coming back ever since.

Craig Westerberg purchased this condo in 2001

Why Craig Westerberg chose Marco Island

After coming down for 9 years we really got used to getting out of the cold Minnesota winters for a couple of weeks in January. We found it was a great way to break up the long winters. Now not only are we fortunate enough to enjoy our own place on the beach of Marco, but we get to share the experience with others.

What makes this condo unique

It's funny, our friends always ask us what we have planned for our trip to Marco and we just laugh and say 'nothing' For us that is the best part of coming to Marco, we don't have to plan. It's a great place to simply come and relax and take each day one at at a time. Lots of beach time, pool time, a round of golf or two, and a beverage of your choice at sunset!

Our 2 girls have been coming to Marco since they were born. They love the beach, especially going to the beach early in the morning to look for sand dollars. Oh did I mention the pool, they love the pool too.

Marco Island does have plenty to do. Lots of great restaurants, fresh seafood, boat rentals, golf, fishing, biking and much more. So whether your looking to come and veg out and just recharge your batteries or you want to be more active, there really is something for everyone here, Marco Island is the perfect vacation destination.

We love it and I know you will too!!

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Rented two condos off VRBO for first time this year in Marco. Absolutely fantastic time. Just generally to Marco Island, we thought the island was heaven. Definitely would recommend the Gulf Coast to anyone thinking of Florida (warmer water, calmer) and Marco Island is really the best in my mind. Some may dispute because the sand is shelly, but we have small kids, so that was one of the nicest parts for shelling and exploring.

Specific to South Seas and Craig's condo: South Seas is on the more laid back, permanent resident side of the beach. The other side is high end hotels and more of a party atmosphere. South Seas is especially appealing for seniors and parents with small children, though I would go there without kids any time. You'll probably see from other reviews that the beach is a hike from the condos, but we really didn't find it a big deal at all, and Craig provides a beach cart if you're really hauling stuff. We have a six year old and two year old and had no problems. Also keeping in mind that a hotel room on the other side can go for double and triple the amount per night, a walk to the beach was an easy trade off. Lots of restaurants and grocery stores available by easy, short drive. For those used to living in a big city, you'll be mostly using a car to get to these amenities, but that's true basically anywhere in southwest Florida.

We stayed in two different condos in South Seas, and this condo was clearly superior. Nicely done and thought given to the amenities. Lots of chairs, toys, beach cart. The spare bedroom had two double beds, where lots of condos just have singles. The advantage is you could bring more adults with the kids, and we plan on bringing friends or grandma next time. Carpeted bedrooms was really nice for the kids so they could sit on the floor and play, as lots of these condos have tile floors throughout.

Definitely will be renting with Craig again. We stayed in May, which was an awesome time to stay. Perfect days, low season, hardly anyone around, and a great big pool lots of times to ourselves. Both our kids were started with floaties, and were swimming without after our time here. May is a perfect time to go with small children.

Beautiful place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Casa Del Sol. The view was breathtaking. The area was relaxing and quaint. The proximity to the beach could not have been closer. Parking was a dream. The condo had all the amenities of home and was very clean, welcoming and homey. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Would recommend to everyone.

Great place to view the Gulf

  • 5 of 5

Casa Del Sol was next to Tigertail Beach. The South Seas area is a wonderful place to walk and has amenities such as pickleball, tennis, shuffleboard, and a putting green. The best part was waking up to swaying palm trees with the gulf in the background. A warm, wonderful, relaxing month.

Super winter retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Marco is the perfect place to escape colder winter temps and to enjoy the excellent shelling on Tigertail Beach. The inviting pool is the social gathering place in the afternoons. We have stayed in this unit several times and it is always neat, clean and completely equipped. If you have extra guests the 2nd bedroom has two double beds vs. the normal twin beds. Plenty of beach chairs, etc. are provided and the balcony has comfortable furniture on it as well. We like being on a lower floor as the view is still excellent and you don't spend so time waiting for or riding an elevator. This place has become our annual January "place in the sun" as per the owner's title of "casa del sol". Our favorite dining places this year were Nacho Mama's (naturally, being from Texas), DaVinci's, Kretch's, the Sand Bar (even with the noise) and the Old Marco Lodge out in Goodland. An extra tip provided to us by Craig - spend an extra $10 with the parking permit and get the barcode for your car to enable bypassing the sometimes long line at the gated entrance.
