“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed October 3, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My wife and I rented this condo during the week of September 12 through 19th. We chose this condo based on the price being so much lower than all of the others we were considering. So obviously we arrived with some trepidation, for the old saying, "you get what you pay for". However, in this case, the axiom was not true.
Upon arrival, the condo was immaculately clean. Mr. Batte was very cordial and we couldn't have been more pleased with his condo. As previously stated, with the deck being so large it actually added another room to the condo.
An additional great bonus is the restaurant/bar located on the ground level which had both a great happy hour and surprisingly good food. Also the Apollo condo itself is highly secure, in that keys are needed for entry for the elevator, for the pool and for access to and from the beach. You cannot rent a more secure condo. Regarding the pool facility, we have never seen a more cleaner pool.
Recent news regarding potential fraud in rental practices is not the case with this owner, as our security deposit was promptly returned.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Marco Island and at this condo and look forward to returning.

“The worst experience”
Reviewed September 16, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We had a really bad experience with the stay itself, the condo, and especially with how we were treated by the owner, Mr. Joe Batte.

In a nutshell, we were suprised by an extensive building renovation right in the middle of our stay, with people drilling and banging all day long starting at 8am. The worst part was when they decided to sand our unit's door at 9am while we still were getting up.
After attempting to contact the owner for two days of construction, all in vain, we moved to a different place. We got no apologies from the owner, and instead were treated quite badly when trying to recover the advance payment. Throughout the entire process there were minor, but in retrospect entirely consistent missteps in communication on Mr. Batte's part, such as persistent aithmetic mistakes in his favor. Another telling fact is how he sent us the lease contract, which contained some disclaimer about "minor" construction work planned for the time of our stay (but with no inconvenience to us!). We only got the contract after he received our payment in full and even then after our persistent emails and even phone calls. Until then we had no idea of any possible issues, and would have surely chosen a different condo if he was forthcoming with the information.

The unit itself is OK, but fairly old and in mediocre condition. Some parts required repair (e.g. the screen door). The sheets for the pull-out sofa simply had holes. The kitchen was a little better, with some new appliances.

Overall, we have been to Marco Island many times, and this has been by far the worst experience.

We have been renting our beautiful property for many years with very favorable responses from our guests. Unfortunately, this guest did not like the neighbors already there, and chose to make false statements regarding our property, in an attempt to get out and take their rental money w/them. Not liking the neighbors is one thing, but bad mouthing our property is very wrong. This person was given a refund & the neighbors were very appreciative of it!
