About Carol Shapiro
My husband and I enjoy having a place to come to and relax and enjoy the wildlife, plus we enjoy sharing it with others. I especially love looking for daily treasures that appear on the beach. In the picture, my husband is clearly very happy with the two unusually large shells we found that day!
Carol Shapiro purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Carol Shapiro chose Marco Island
We love to be so close to many different nature places, while being able to see amazing views of nature even if we stay inside! The Everglades are close by, and we love the birdwatching right from our windows.
What makes this Condo unique
Our condo has so many beautiful and panoramic views! Even when we had torn everything down to the concrete walls and floors during renovation, you could just gaze out onto the Gulf, the two beaches, or the Nature Reserve and it was still enjoyable being in the condo. You can see sunsets, watch the puffy white clouds and their shadows moving across the water, and even the occasional storms are fun to watch through the huge bank of windows. It is like being outside, but you are inside. Add the casual/elegant decoration and our leather recliners, and it is a pretty wonderful place to relax and enjoy! We hope you consider coming to experience for yourself.

This was our first time to Marco Island....was nothing short of amazing. From the first time I talked to Carol, I knew it was the right spot. She was on the ball with everything, her 17th floor condo was absolutely stunning. Her communication was top notched regarding about the complex to places to eat and things to do. Her place makes you feel like home. The breathtaking views and beautiful beach is nothing short of spectacular. I would highly recommend and look forward to going there again.
The Perfect Beach Vacation!
We had a wonderful experience on Marco Island! The condo is beautiful! It felt like a posh hotel but with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen, dining room and living room it had all the comforts of home. Not enough can be said about the view from the wrap-around balcony. Every evening we went out to see who could take the best pictures of the sunset, no winner since there were no bad pictures.
Carol and Karen could not have been more accommodating, everything was handled with great care.
We loved kayaking and shelling at Tigertail Beach and swimming at Crescent Beach. There are some good places to eat that are easily walk-able. Lots to keep you busy and since it was off season there were no crowds.
This was our first trip to Marco Island. We have vacationed in many Florida beach towns; Holmes Beach, Jacksonville Beach, Cocoa Beach, Ormond Beach, St. Pete Beach, Clearwater, and Siesta Key. Marco Island has now made it to the top of the list.
First-rate condo, stunning view
This is a gorgeous, tastefully-decorated condo with a world-class view. The beach is amazing, and the view of the bird sanctuary (17 floors below!) is truly unique. And Carol is a first-rate host -- friendly and informative!
When we walked into the condo all we could say was Wow! What you see is exactly what you get from the pictures. The condo was immaculate with attention to all the little things you didn’t think you needed . The beds were so comfortable and the linen, pillows, towels top of the line. The view from the living room and kitchen were so beautiful and serene. The master bathroom with its spa shower was glorious for me so I could calm down my sore back. The kitchen was so well stocked with beautiful dishes and anything else you could possibly need. Carol and Dan were amazing! If you had any questions they got right back to you and Carol sent so much material before getting there that you could plan things to do. All I can say is that we will definitely be back there! Thank you Dan and Carol for the most amazing vacation!
Words can not describe the incredible feel you get from the views from this condo. Carol and Karen made things so seamless during the rental process and at check in and check out. They were over the top helpful. The condo is decorate beautifully to give you that relaxing feeling and has everything you need in a home away from home. We enjoyed the easy access to the beach and the large pool.. Watching the sunsets from the balcony were beyond amazing. We will definitely be back when we return to Marco Island.
Beautiful condo with a gorgeous view! Cannot wait to go back!
My husband and I decided to vacation in Marco Island this year for the first time and choosing Carol and Dan’s condo was the best decision we made. For starters, Carol is such a pleasure to work with and will do whatever she can to ensure you will have a memorable trip. She went above and beyond everything we had expected, even getting us some additional information about different activities and things to do and see on the island. Property manager Karen was also a huge help being so accommodating to us having such a late arrival. From the moment my husband and I walked in the door of the condo we didn’t want to leave. It instantly felt like home and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The view is absolutely gorgeous. We had a few days of rain but staying in the condo with that view and watching the storms over the gulf was just perfect. The condo was stocked very well with everything you may need and then some. We cannot thank Carol, Dan, and Karen enough for such a wonderful stay and a memorable, relaxing trip. We definitely plan to go back soon!
Our condo is located on the beach of the Gulf of Mexico in Southwest Florida, on Marco Island. We are beachfront, adjacent to a nature reserve, and have world class shelling, excellent birding, and an amazing view. You can play in the warm gulf waters, sunbathe, or just relax looking out the huge expanse of windows onto the beach and gulf. Many nature reserves are nearby, and the Everglades National Park is about 40 minutes away. If you want to visit the Florida Keys, from June through August, you can take a 3 hr express ferry to Key West from Marco.
