Why Michelle Fenimore chose Marco Island
We first visited Marco Island in mid 2014 and loved the relaxed environment and the beautiful beaches. We love that it never feels too crowded We had always wanted to own a beachfront getaway to escape the cold northeast winters and decided this was the perfect location. In late 2014 we returned to Marco and had the opportunity to purchase a unit in the Somerset. We loved the Somerset property and its location so we bought it. We come down a few times a year with our children when they are not in school to relax, and rent it out for others to enjoy the rest of the year.

Perfectly appointed condo!
Michelle was a delight to rent from. The condo was well appointed. The decor and amenities were incredible. We will definitely be staying here again!
Wonderful condo! Great location!
We just spent a week at this Somerset condo and absolutely loved it! We were there in the off season (August) and it was perfect, no crowds, no lines, no traffic and we literally had the beach all to ourselves! The condo was beautifully decorated and the view from the lanai was amazing. I could have sat there all day just looking at the peaceful water and sunsets, totally therapeutic. Got some great pics! The pool was also nice and surprisingly refreshing, as it was pretty hot. The ocean water was so warm! The owners have all of the amenities you will need for your stay, plenty of towels, linens, kitchen gadgets and beach chairs/toys. Master bedroom has a beautiful view of the ocean, which was a bonus. Just put a smile on my face to wake up to that each day!
The restaurants were all great, our favorites were Marco Prime and DaVinci's, but Snook Inn, Mango's and Sami's were also really good. Dorene's was awesome for breakfast and tried NeNe's as well, also good. The ice cream shop in Marco Plaza is delish! I will say the island is pretty low key (in the summer), so my boys ages 12 and 10 were a little bored, not much activity for them. We found day passes online for a nice resort, about an hour drive north off 75. It was awesome! They LOVED it, as did my husband and I. Very upscale and clean, variety of pools and waterslides, and low rates and no lines in August! Highlight of the week for the kids!
The only thing I didn't love about Marco was the sand, it is very 'shelly' and kind of hurts your feet if you don't wear sandals/water shoes. My kids didn't like that either. The sand is very pretty white, but it's not soft, I was glad someone told me that before we went so I wasn't expecting baby powder. However, if you like shelling, we did find whole shells and sand dollars, which was neat. It did rain almost daily but it moved in and out quickly, we saw plenty of sun!
I also did a spa day at nearby hotel, it was beautiful and very upscale. Nice treat!
Michelle, the owner, was great to work with. She was very responsive when booking and when I had questions during our stay. We will definitely go back to Marco and this condo, and going in the summer is just wonderful if you don't like fighting crowds and traffic. Just a vacation of true relaxation!
Had a wonderful time in Marco Island. Condo is great!
Beautiful condo! Fantastic accommodations! Owner did a wonderful job making it both functional and lovely. Hated to leave. Hoping to return next summer!
The Perfect Family Getaway
We had an incredible family vacation at Somerset 607! Traveling with young kids (6 and almost 2) can be a little overwhelming and not all that relaxing. But this place could not be more convenient - both in terms of the location and all the amenities. We wanted to find a place where we had quick access to the beach and a pool - knowing it might be a short trip due to a change in weather or that occasional temper tantrum! We also wanted to stay somewhere with not only plenty of space, but a place we’d want to be if we happened to be stuck inside. Despite the daunting forecast, the weather turned out to be beautiful all week. The condo itself is absolutely gorgeous - updated and very clean. The pictures are the perfect representation of the unit. We ate several meals on the lanai while watching the waves crash on the beach. Every morning , even the kids couldn’t wait to wake up and open up the sliding doors to hear the ocean! When we didn’t eat breakfast in, we took a short drive to Doreen’s Cup of Joe. Maybe the best breakfast spot we’ve ever been. After breakfast, we gathered up the kids, packed the cooler and beach bag, and headed down to the beach - plenty of room to set up camp for a few hours. The locker with beach toys, umbrellas, chairs and beach cart was a lifesaver! After a day at the beach, we’d grab a quick bite for lunch at the condo (and maybe a quick nap). Then we’d head to the pool for a couple of hours where our 6 year old made plenty of friends. For dinner, we tried Sami’s Pizza, Mango’s Dockside, Snook Inn, And Joey’s Pizza. All were worth the visit! The kids had plenty of room to sleep and Netflix was always available when they needed a break from the sun. The laundry room was another lifesaver, as we always had fresh towels and bathing suits. After the kids (finally) went to bed, my wife and I enjoyed an evening cocktail on the lanai while we watched the sun go down over the Gulf. Overall, an incredible family vacation, we wish we didn’t have to leave, but we will definitely be back! Marco Island was a beautiful spot and Michelle was tremendous to work with throughout the entire process. Very responsive to all of our questions! Thanks for letting us stay stay at your property and for all the incredible memories! - Mike & Michelle Winchell
Wonderful Family Vacation
We enjoyed greatly the Somerset Condo. The condo, pool and beach areas were perfect for our family of 5. It is the perfect environment to relax and have fun. We will consider this a must stay for future vacations.
