“Apollo 902”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

We stayed here Oct 5-12, 2013...I paid $600 Saturday to Saturday.. The Condo was very nice. It is a 1 bedroom unit with a sofa bed. It's ample space for 2.. It was clean and had all the essentials you needed for the week... I made sure we checked in before heading to the supermarket to make sure everything was stocked. It had toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags and plenty of dishes, glasses, silverware.. There was hand soap and bath soap also dish detergent and dishwasher detergent...

I would definitely rent this unit again... The Apollo is a safe building( you need a key to get in building and use elevators) with a great restaurant with outside bar on site (Sunset Grille) ..It has an outside pool and fitness area..

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

We stayed in a 1 bedroom unit. Very clean and ocean front! We visited in late May and the price was fantastic for a week's stay! Gary, the front desk clerk, was very helpful and friendly! The restaurant downstairs was great to drink and watch hockey on TV! Food was very good too! The only minor complaint was the beach was very shelly and difficult to walk on in some places. We did find some beautiful shells, though! Guess you take the good with the bad!

We had a wonderful time. We had serene views, playful dolphins and plenty of activities very close. The condo had everything we needed and was very comfortable. Eric had great ideas on where to go and what to do. We are looking forward to a return trip!! Telling all our friends about this hidden treasure.

The condo provided me with a slice of paradise. This was my first experience in Marco Island and the location was amazing. The view from the private balcony of the sparkling water & incredible sunsets will take your breath away. I enjoyed being able to fall asleep while listening to the sound of the ocean. There is an abundance of unique shells on the white sandy beach. The building was very well maintained including the cleanliness of the interior of the condo. I had such a magical experience and can’t wait to return….

Our stay in Eric's condo was perfect. The building is well maintained and secure. Needing a key just to get in is very comforting. The staff were friendly and helpful. The unit is exactly as stated - clean, comfortable and perfect for 2. We had breakfast and lunch everyday in the unit and had dinner out. The beach is shelled as stated in previous reviews but it is hard which is so easy to walk on or bring strollers on. Better than soft sand. I would recommend this unit to anyone looking for an affordable and comfortable place to stay. I'm planning to return!

This is a lovely condo right on the beach that offers great views with sunsets, great beach and shelling all on a tropical island. The vlue is incredble especially when you are sitting on the water's edge watching the sunset.

I have spent many years vacationing in Florida usually further north around Maderia Beach and this was my first stay to Marco Island. It was great - the way I remembered my Florida vacations from years ago. The weather was great, the location was great and the food was great! Eric's condo had everything we needed and the building is very well maintained and secure. Our vacation went all too quickly of course. We will definitely be back next year.

Review Submitted 03/06/13
The location of this unit was outstanding! We saw beautiful sunsets at nite from our deck! We overlooked the Gulf and the beach. The photos were as the unit actually is; decorated in a beach motif. The kitchen had all the items needed for cooking. There was a restaurant on the street level that was outstanding. We could walk to other restaurants, shopping, or just walk for exercise. Did not have to drive much. Loved that! We could drive to nearby towns taking only 30 minutes or so. Anyone would enjoy this unit and its location!

Enjoyed the overall experience. The views are wonderful and the staff was helpful. Our room was small but functional.....it could have been cleaner and we informed the owner when we returned the key. Also, there was limited toilet paper, paper towels and glasses. I loved that fact that it was walking distance to many of the shops, restaurants and the movie theater.

In the morning we ran along the beach, we watched the sun set every evening from the deck with a glass of wine, at night we slept with the door open listening to the sounds of the waves on the beach. It was like having our own private beach front - I think that says it all.

We found this place on VRBO.com and we are so glad we did. This place has everything you can think of in a vacation rental location. Beautiful white sand beaches to blue water. Tons & tons of sea shells for you picking. Security here at the condo makes you feel very safe. We have never felt so welcomed before. Marco Island has it all from grocery stores to small boutiques to sovereign shops. Our stay was relaxing and we will forever have the best memories. I HIGHLY recommend this condo for your next vacation. We stayed at #209 and the balconies are bigger on the second floor just fyi!

We just got home from our stay in Apollo 804. We had a great week! This rental is not the Marriott or Hilton so please don't go into a rental here thinking it is. The unit could use some updating (bathroom, bedroom carpet, kitchenette/living area). . But to be honest, we very rarely spent any time in the unit. But the view from the balcony is amazing! We had our meals out there as well as played some card games as we watched the beautiful sunsets! Most of the time, we were either down at the beach, lounging by the large beautiful pool, or out exploring the island. It is very secure. You have to have a key to get into the building, onto the elevator, or back in from the beach. One of their employees even came through the pool area several times a day checking to ensure everyone was actually a guest at the condo. We had plenty of hot water whenever we wanted it and the A/C worked perfectly. It was really nice being able to load up the fridge with a week's worth of breakfast and lunch items. Fran (condo owner) was very nice and accessible but didn't bother us at all during our visit. The only thing I did not like was the location of the condo building. The public beach access is right next to the condo so that area of the beach tended to be quite crowded.

Great unit for the price. Great view of the beach from balcony. Pool was nice and easy access to beach. Food on ground floor was good and view from patio was great. Will recommend this unit and building to all my friends and family. We can't wait until next year. See you then!!!

I don't even know where to start with this unit. If you rent this unit make sure to pick up items your expecting will be in the unit when you arrive. Toilet paper, dish soap, trash bags, extra light bulbs etc. I don't know where they get the cleaning people to clean but they need to teach them what cleaning is. The bathroom floor had hair on it (wasn't ours), mirror in bathroom looked like it hadn't been cleaned. Coffee pot still had the grounds in it from previous renter (once again hello cleaning people part of your job)...lamps in bedroom next to bed had no light bulbs (makes reading hard) need to purchase new wash rags and towels (very old) blinds in bedroom were so dirty...looked like they have NEVER been cleaned. The carpet in the bedroom really needs a good cleaning..I even attempted to vacuum it...What a surprise when I turned on the vacuum and it sounded odd. I flipped it over and to my surprise the entire mechanism (motor that drives the belts and brush roller were gone! My question is why would someone keep this and do the so called cleaning people use it??? This unit really need an update and a good cleaning and paint job.

As far as the Apollo goes it was a nice complex. It was in a good location, beach nice and they have a good restaurant. I would consider staying here again but most definitely not Unit 705 stear clear of it!!!
