About Chris or Scott Frodel

We had visited Marco Island for years before deciding to buy our beautiful condo here at the Sandcastle I. We had stayed at the Sandcastle I before and loved the 'feel' of it and the management. We were thrilled when this unit became available, and finally purchased our warm weather get away from the long, chilly winters of Wisconsin!

Chris or Scott Frodel purchased this condo in 2014

Why Chris or Scott Frodel chose Florida South Gulf Coast

The location can't be beat. Waking to the sunrise from the east, minutes to get to the beautiful beach, and enjoying sunsets in the evening on the Lanai! The Sandcastle is conveniently located within walking distance of great shopping and restaurants.

What makes this condo unique

The views and spaciousness of our condo are spectacular. The wrap around lanai gives you so much more space to enjoy the beautiful Marco Island weather and sea breezes.

Luxury 14th Floor Penthouse Condo - Spectaular Views & Steps from the Beach!
average rating of 4.5 based on 2 reviews


  • 5 of 5

Everything about this condo exceeded our expectations. The unit is extraordinarily nice and contained everything we could possible imagine that we might need (or want) to enjoy a great vacation. The view is spectacular - you simply can't escape from it anywhere in the unit. The owner was very easy to work with and always helpful. It seemed more like we were sharing a place that belonged to family than using a rental unit. We were constantly surprised by the owner's generosity as we (gently) used their possessions during our stay.

For us, this was a once in a lifetime vacation. It was only possible because this was the "off season" but the weather was perfect and everything came together for a great time as a family.

Marco Island is expensive, but you can avoid restaurants and buy groceries off of the island. The unit had everything you could possibly need to provide your own meals.

Everything about the description was 100% accurate. The photos really don't do it justice. Typically, we have learned to lower our expectations knowing that reality is won't be as nice as the on-line photo. This time, it was the opposite. The building and the unit are very well maintained and managed. Everything is clean and in great working order.

The bottom line is that we felt totally spoiled during our time here. We were able to enjoy a place much nicer than we imagined or deserved. It far, far exceeded our expectations! Maybe we can return someday..........
