About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom beachfront condo

This lovely 1 bedroom / 1 bath unit with wonderful terrace overlooking the beach, sits directly on Marco’s South Beach, next to the Island’s most exclusive condominium complex. Some defining features include: stunning views of the Gulf from the 3rd floor, dead western exposure for unforgettable sunsets, the Sunset Grill Restaurant on the first floor, a pool, and tennis courts. Perfect for couples or families looking to do nothing but kick back, relax and enjoy the soothing sounds of the waves from the balcony! Book your dream vacation today! The condo building charges a flat $25.00 parking fee (paid directly to them upon checking in) regardless of the length of your stay or how often you go in and out of the bldg.

According to the Realty Review: Marco Island was named as the third best island in America this year! Wow! This is HUGE! Ten Islands were listed on March 26th, 2013 and reported by Fox News. Marco was the first of the five Florida islands listed. They mentioned that Marco Island is what every vacationer hopes for…white sandy beaches, sparkling seas with the Everglades and 10,000 Islands in their backyard.

Marco was also featured by CNN Travel in April, 2013 as being one of the “10 places that can change your child’s life!” Keith Bellows, Editor in Chief of National Geographic’s Traveler Magazine, writes about Marco Island and the spectacular nature and wildlife the surround our area.

Mr. Bellows recently visited Marco Island to sign copies of his book at our own “Sunshine Booksellers” book store. Keith Bellows’ new book “100 Places That Can Change Your Child’s Life – from your backyard to the ends of the earth” specifically mentions Marco Island, and the Dolphin Explorer cruise. World renowned Bellows, states that you can introduce your child to marine biology by searching for dolphins. In his book he says “There is a kid’s way of seeing the world, parents need to get out of the way, and stop marching them through the experience (like action packed amusement parks.) When you get them to slow down and experience a place from their prospective, it’s magic.”

Our local convention and Visitors’ bureau P. R. directors said that this recognition “is incredibly significant and it’s huge in terms if recognition and prestige because it’s published by National Geographic Books, the pinnacle of travel publications.”

I have had the opportunity to live and sell Real Estate here in paradise for the past thirty years and I am still, on a daily basis, AWESTRUCK with the magic of Marco!

Debbie and Stephen Barker have published The Marco Review magazines for the past twenty years and go to great lengths to make sure our visitors are thoroughly informed of everything to do. Make sure you nature buffs, explorers, water sport enthusiasts and fisherman read their new feature “Exploring Marco and the Everglades”. It has been an honor and privilege to be part of The Marco Review’s journey over the last twenty years. Happy Anniversary Barker family for a job well done – your magazine is the “golden standard” publication for tourists and Islanders alike. Congratulations! Thank you Debbie and Stephen for your dedication and service.

Marco Island is a “one of a kind” Island Paradise. Some people have called it the Hawaii of the east. I have called it “home” for the past thirty years and I am still in awe of it. And yes, I still get goose bumps when I come over the magical bridge after being away for a while. And yes, I still have epiphanies when I experience the wonders of our area. And yes, I still pinch myself when I experience those unbelievable, spectacular sunrises and sunsets or when I see the dolphins and manatees playing in our backyards. These daily occurrences that too many of us here, unfortunately, take for granted. Not me! I am very thankful for having the privilege and opportunity of living and working here for the past three decades. My famous one liner is “It’s great to be alive and on Marco Island!” I recently re-read “The Last Paradise, the building of modern Marco” by Douglas Waitley, a magnificent book that is highly recommended! It can be purchased at either Sunshine Booksellers stores, The Marco Eagle, or my main office. This book is mandatory reading for all my sales agents and a must read if you are purchasing a property here.'

About Surma Daphtary

I have been coming to Marco Island for ages and have been a resident for many years. I have not found a place that offers the same beauty, amenities, and safety anywhere else.

Surma Daphtary purchased this condo in 2012

Why Surma Daphtary chose Florida South Gulf Coast

I chose to buy a vacation rental on Marco Island because it is a popular tourist destination and offers beaches, golf, dining, shops, and close proximity to downtown Naples.

What makes this condo unique

This property is located on Marco Island’s Crescent shaped beach and offers amazing views! The Apollo offers the Sunset Grille Restaurant on the lobby level along with great amenities! It is also located just minutes from Marco Walk Plaza where you can find fine dining, shopping, Movie Theater, comedy club, night life, and much more!

Wonderful Vacation at the Appolo

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I REALLY enjoyed our stay in Marco Island. Our stay at the Apollo in Room 302 was perfect for the 2 of us to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary. We loved getting up every morning and having our coffee on the deck over looking the gulf and we absolutely loved the sunsets from our room each night, they are every bit as spectacular as advertised. The room had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. We enjoyed every meal at all the restaurants we went to specifically Doreen's for breakfast and a great Italian meal at Ciao Bella's. The beach was beautiful and the gulf water was relaxing. My wife and I will be back again as we loved everything about Marco Island.

Month of May Stay

  • 5 of 5

I rented this unit for the entire month of May and my stay was nothing short of wonderful! It's tastefully decorated and has everything you might need to feel at home. I only had to purchase my own groceries while there. The view of the beach is fabulous and you will see every sunset from inside the unit or on the deck. The beach is wonderful and the water was like bath water. There was also a very comfortable King size bed which I loved. Everything was functional, TV and secure wifi and I had no problems. The building is well secured which I liked. They have a large pool too and a wonderful restaurant in the building. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Unit 302 became my home for a month and I just can't wait to go back!! I will definitely rent this unit again!!

relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the condo for 4 nights for a short getaway for our 14th anniversary. I really enjoyed the beach not being crowded and it was very relaxing. The condo was very nice and clean. No problems. You even had to have a key to get in the building and on the elevator which I loved. Thank you so much for making our 2nd honeymoon a success.
