Why Kevin & Cheri Ricky chose Marco Island

Prior to buying on Marco Island, we rented several times. When we decided to spend most of our vacations there, we decided to look at properties to purchase. We looked at various locations from the northern part of the state to Marco Island. After a three-year process, we realized Marco Island had the best year-around temperatures, white sandy beaches and shelling, and we could have a unit directly on the beach. When we visited the property and saw the dolphins, typically every day, we knew this location was our retirement goal. We love visiting and never tire of the peaceful and laid-back atmosphere. If we need livelier entertainment, it's a short trip to Naples with many fun spots there.

What makes this condo unique

We love the ever-changing beautiful sunsets, watching the dolphins, the peaceful R&R, and seeing the ocean every morning when we rise and hearing it at night when we go to bed. The owners are particular about the condition of their unit and visit the property to update, freshen up and make necessary repairs regularly.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a note to let you know we had a wonderful time at your condo. The beach, water, weather, food, shelling and the entire atmosphere of Marco were so enjoyable. We will have to visit again.

STAY HERE! LOOK NO FURTHER!

  • 5 of 5

Like many before us, this was my first trip to Marco Island. Kevin and Cheri came highly recommended from a friend from work who has been staying at their property for years. Everything was fantastic here. Appliances new, plenty of organized kitchen, bathroom, bedroom accessories. Beach furniture on the balcony. TV in each room. Groceries on the island made it easy for us to eat in and save money! Owners are amazing to work with and will accommodate you in every way. Fast return on my security deposit. Be aware that if you have never been to Florida, there are many mosquitoes at dawn and dusk. Spray up and go for a sunrise or sunset walk. I cannot imagine ever staying anywhere else in Florida. Check out the different restaurant menus in the condo. We enjoyed Li's (in the middle of nowhere) and also enjoyed the Sunset Grill, which had the best Mexican food on Taco Tuesday. I would recommend going to Florida the first few weeks of June. We had no rain. Unfortunately, we were there the weekend of the Orlando shootings, so prayers went out that day. I came back so relaxed and with a clear head. I was able to tackle projects at home, and I learned how to say "no" in my busy full-time working mother/wife life. Marco Island will do that to you. I will be back...so don't take my reservation!

Owner's Response: Hi, Annette and family, we loved having you! We so appreciated the referral from Marty, and we're pleased that you found our condo as she recommended it to be. More importantly, Marco Island did its job and provided you some R&R before having to return to work. We are blessed to have such nice renters who take great care of our condo, and would love to have you back in the future. Thanks again for selecting our little piece of paradise for your vacation, and for taking time to write this review for our future renters. C&K

Beautiful modern condo

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Marco Island, celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary! This condo was equipped with everything you could want, from the kitchen to the beach closet. It was very clean and newly remodeled. I loved the washer and dryer, which was new and easy to operate. Full-size appliances (and newer) worked great and plenty of dishes and pans for use. I liked the way everything was labeled for organization. Spectacular views from the balcony...great location on the 11th floor. Watching the dolphins every morning and evening was amazing! We even saw manatees while on the beach. The owners were great too, recommending places to eat and things to do! They even called to follow up after we arrived to make sure everything was OK for us. The bed was very comfortable, and I loved every detail of how decorations were placed to make us feel welcomed and relaxed. I also liked the big walk in showers in both bathrooms. Plenty of towels and wash cloths, even a hair dryer was there and was one less thing I had to pack to bring. The pool was clean and nice, and the hot tub nice great. Not crowded during our visit! I would highly recommend this condo if you are planning to stay at Marco Island. We had a great time and will return sometime in the future. We would definitely stay here again! The staff was great too. Pool security, front desk, and others like housekeeping staff we ran into were helpful and polite.

Owner's Response: Hi, Deb and Dan. We loved having you stay in our condo for your 20th (congratulations!) and greatly appreciate you taking the time to write this review. We are always happy to hear that our rental guests enjoyed their vacation and our condo, and that it met or exceeded your expectations. Yes, our appliance are less than one year old, and all are full-size unlike some other units. It is also good to hear that the things out of our control were good as well - clean pool and beach, pleasant staff (the building manager and staff are wonderful), good security, etc. Thanks again for selecting our condo and for leaving it in such great condition when you left. We would love to have you back in the near future! C&K

Beautiful condo!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Marco Island for 12 years and have stayed at the Seawinds for most of our trips. This was the first time we stayed in this condo and it was so much more than we expected! It was beautifully furnished, extremely clean, well stocked with everything you needed, and all the furnishings and appliances were new and high quality. Kevin and Cheri were very responsive and pleasant. We had a fabulous trip and plan to stay at this condo again! We highly recommend staying here-definitely the nicest one we have stayed in! Love the beautiful white beach, the turtle nests, the many wonderful restaurants, and the beautiful sunsets every night. Can't wait to come back next year!

Totally Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the nicest, cleanest, well stocked, condo that we have ever stayed in. Kevin and Cherri have gone all out to make our stay one of the best vacations we have had in Florida. We try to do two trips a year and intend to be back sometime in 2016. The kitchen was so well stocked, appliances are all new and anywhere you stood you could see the water and here the waves. Thank you so much and and so nice to have met you while we were there. Susan d.

FABULOUS CONDO!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is beautifully maintained and has every item you could possibly need for an enjoyable stay! We have stayed at many VRBO units but this was our first visit to Marco Island and first stay in a unit that had us wanting for nothing! The 2 beach chairs we used were in excellent condition and it looked like there were perhaps a total of 6 chairs plus a sand cart to get everything down to the beach. We didn't use the cart or the umbrellas or the canopy but all those items were there for your use! The "beach closet" when you first walk in is full of toys, noodles and coolers. The yellow beach towels in there were large and fluffy! The condo itself was very clean and had every item we needed (except for food & beverages!) The ice maker made enough ice for the cooler every day. The kitchen is extremely well stocked , even plenty of plastic "to-go" cups for the beach. The master bed was comfy, the bathrooms were updated and very nice as were the towels the guests use. I can honestly say there was not one thing we were lacking! Loved having the washer and dryer also. View from 11th floor is fantastic - you could watch the 4th of July fireworks from the beach or the balcony! Extremely convenient location to what quickly became our favorite restaurants - Snook Inn and the Sand Bar and also so convenient for a very fun trip to Naples one afternoon/evening. Thank you Kevin & Cheri - we had a blast!

Great Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

I rented Kevin and Cheri's condo for a week in early June. My wife, 4 year old son, and myself had a great time. The condo was on the 11th floor and it was in great shape. It was clean and the bathrooms were very nice. Seawinds wasn't crowded and the beach was great. I would recommend this condo to anyone who would like to vacation in Marco for a great price.
