Excellent Condo, Excellent Vacation
We had the opportunity to visit Marco Island for the second time recently. While our condo for our first trip was nice, Melissa’s condo was far superior and met all our needs. The condo was very clean, comfortable, and had all the items we needed for our stay including beach supplies. I would most certainly stay in this condo again for a future vacation. Thank you Melissa for your excellent hospitality and fantastic condo!

Marco Island Retreat
The condo is newly renovated and done extremely well. The sunsets are beautiful and wonderfully viewable from the balcony. The beach is very well-groomed – you can walk for a very long way and being able to get to the beach so easily is a real plus. We saw dolphins almost every morning – what fun to watch. Melissa and Rob are very attentive and responsive – could not ask for better. This is such a relaxing place – we will certainly return.

Another week in Paradise!
We loved the view of the gulf and the beautiful sunsets. The convenience of walking out the doors and right on to the beach was great. Everything in the condo was in excellent condition. There was a convenience store and restaurants within walking distance. This was a great place for relaxing. We loved it so much, we have booked it again for next year!!

Great views, easy access to beach and CLEAN!!!
Owners were quick to respond and professional in our inquiries and rental process. We were greeted upon our arrival by Amanda and Ron, and given a tour and our questions answered. What a welcoming to a great vacation! The grounds were exceptionally clean as well as the condo. The beach chairs were of higher quality as well as the linens and beds. All appliances worked well and the kitchen well stocked. Marco islands restaurants were exceptional and we had excellent, friendly, professional services on the nights we decided not to cook and eat out. Beaches were clean and patrolled throughout the day–surrounded by friendly families all enjoying the clear water and scenery. Have vacationed at Tybee Island, Gulf Shores, Dauphin Island, Pensacola, Destin, Maui, Cayman Islands–Marco is one of the top contenders for beaches, cost, and atmosphere. You won’t be disappointed.
