I rented a two bedroomed villa at the 'Gulf Front' block - which I've now stayed there twice in the past 3 years - and both says have been fabulous.
Aside from the usual swimming pool and beach activities during the day, my favourite pastime was 'storm watching' - just about every evening during my two trips, both around August.
Often, there are several thunderstorms that seemingly circle Marco Island each evening - but very rarely do they actually come anywhere near the Island itself. Sitting on the balcony with a nice glass of wine, watching the sun sink down over the sea, then mother nature firing up those distant thunderstorms makes for a truly amazing 'light show'!
During the day, apart from the beach and the pool, see if you can find time to hire a boat, then take the inland waterways up to Naples. We have some great pics of dolphins swimming alongside our boat - which thrilled us all.
