Marco Island is such a lovely place, but Eagle's Nest is not. Absolutely - the location is top notch! Can't say enough about the expansive, pristine beach; access to great food; warm sunny break after a miserable midwest winter. But the Eagles Nest experience was not great. The unit was small, and incredibly TIRED - everything about it suggested warn, not maintained, low level of interest. Unlike another writer, we found the kitchen supplies and appliances adequate - but then again, we were not there to cook. Good thing, because the inside of the microwave door was the SINGLE MOST DISGUSTING appliance I have EVER encountered - literally months (years?) of baked-on splashes which clearly had never seen the scrubby side of a sponge. Also, the toaster oven was scortched on the outside, hardly recommending we try our luck. The carpeting was a grade above indoor/outdoor, and bore bleach stains at the entrance to the master bath. Both bedrooms were small, the second especially so - also no TV in bedroom 2, but there were some clothes in the closet, apparently unneeded by the previous guests. The beds were exceptionally uncomfortable and the linens nothing short of prison issue. Both beds and linens are scheduled for 2009 replacement, but that project needs to be accelerated to 2008. The pillows were just GROSS - yellowed, hard wafers of poly-something, completely inadequate for the job. 3 of the 7 mornings we were blasted out of bed before 8:00 am by the roar of leaf blowers - plan on sleeping with the windows closed and the A/C running if your plans include catching up on your sleep. I could actually go on, but I guess I won't (except to mention - no in room internet access - glad I lugged that laptop 900 miles) - if you're reading this you get the picture. I am not being mean, just trying to add balance to the overly complementary and enthusiastic reviews that significantly influenced our decision to go to Eagles nest in the first place. Fair warning.
