Summit House Marco Island sits at 280 South Collier Boulevard.  It offers up a total of 128 two and three-bedroom units.  Unfortunately, they have a “no pets” policy.  It’s definitely a place for those seeking a quieter lifestyle.  It’s located within walking distance of the Mariott Resort and many popular beach side dining establishments, such as the Paradise Grill Mexican restaurant at Residents’ Beach and the 2017 Diners’ Choice Award winning Sale e Pepe Southern Italian restaurant at the Marco Beach Ocean Resort.

Summit House Marco Island Amenities

Even with the ocean right in your backyard, you still want to enjoy opulent amenities within the condo complex itself.  Summit House Marco Island amenities include a luxury spa, a beautiful pool surrounded by lush landscaping, a jacuzzi and a sauna.  Stay active on the tennis courts or by utilizing their state-of-the-art fitness center.  Summit House also offers a wonderful common area for socializing, relaxing or taking a casual meeting.  Steal away by yourself out of the heat while reading a good book in one of the common room’s many nooks and crannies.

Summit House Marco Island as an Investment Property

Maybe you just want a weekend or seasonal getaway.  What do you do with your beachfront condo when you’re away?  It would be a waste to just let it sit there.  Summit House Marco Island allows owners to lease their condos out for a minimum of 90 days at a time.  Let your condo make you money while you’re not there by leasing it out.  This will also help offset the maintenance fees and other costs associated with beachfront condo living.

If you’re interested in a Summit House condo on Marco Island, contact me.  I’d love to show you what’s available.  If Summit House doesn’t fit your ideal lifestyle, there are several other Naples and Marco Island communities that might work for you.  Just let me know what it is exactly you’re looking for and I’ll help you find it.

Cape Marco: Luxury Beachfront Condo Lifestyle on Marco Island

For some people, a huge house in Southwest Florida is the ultimate goal.  For others, the simplicity of condo living sounds much more inviting.  While it may be simpler, condo living doesn’t have to be boring.  Cape Marco offers a luxury beachfront condo lifestyle on Marco Island.  Every day is a holiday when you live in Cape Marco.

Cape Marco consists of six separate high rise condo buildings that offer their own unique take on the Marco Island beachfront lifestyle.

Cape Marco, Marco Island

A private gated community, Cape Marco consists of six separate high rise buildings for their residents to choose from.  Each building offers its own unique brand of beachfront living.  Whether you want the ultimate in luxury amenities or seek a more casual yet sophisticated lifestyle, Cape Marco has just the right fit for you.

Cape Marco – Belize

Built in 2004, Cape Marco Belize contains 148 units in its pet-friendly building.  Residents can own one pet up to 25 lbs in size per unit.  It’s situated on the very tip of the Marco Island peninsula.  Rentals in Belize can be taken out for no less than 90 days at a time as many as four times per year.  So, this could be a great opportunity for investors looking for vacation properties to rent.  Floor plans range from two to five bedrooms.

Cape Marco – Cozumel

Cape Marco Cozumel sits right on the peninsula with the Belize.  Cozumel was constructed in 1998.  This 120 unit building also allows small pets up to 25 lbs with a limit of one per residence.  Cape Marco Cozumel residents enjoy spectacular views of the Gulf of Mexico’s stunning emerald waters.  If you don’t feel like venturing out into the gulf, spend the day lounging around the pool or relaxing in the on-site sauna.  Cozumel features two and three bedroom floor plans.  When renting, it can be for no less than 90 days at a time.

Cape Marco – Merida

Cape Marco Merida was the first luxury condominium building conceived in Cape Marco.  In fact, its 1992 construction pre-dates Cape Marco itself.  It features 90 beautiful high end condos covering 12 stories.  Every condo has its own private terrace facing the gulf.  Merida features two and three bedroom floors plans.  Furry family members are welcome, too, as long as they weigh 25 lbs or less.  Only one per unit.  Unlike many of the other buildings in Cape Marco, Merida allows 30 day minimum rentals, perfect for renting out when you’re not there.

Cape Marco – Monterrey

Built in 1996, Cape Marco Monterrey looks over the Caxambas Pass as well as the Ten Thousand Islands to the south.  The exquisite architectural design of this 136 unit building takes your breath away.  Guests and residents take full advantage of the heated pool, tennis courts, state-of-the-art fitness center and fishing dock.  They allow a minimum of a 60 day rental period two times per year.  While residents may house one pet up to 25 lbs in size, renters, guests and family members aren’t allowed to bring their pets on-site.

Cape Marco – Tampico

Sitting at the northernmost point of Cape Marco, Tampico was built in 1994.  Residents of this 96 unit building can own as many as two pets up to 25 lbs in size each per condo.  Former Speaker of the House John Boehner loved Tampico so much that he bought one of the units here.  Like Belize and Cozumel, rentals are allowed for a minimum of 90 days at a time in Tampico.

Cape Marco – Veracruz

The newest building in Cape Marco, Veracruz was constructed in 2005.  This building features 123 units consisting of three and four bedroom condos.  Cape Marco allows one pet per unit up to 25 lbs.  While Veracruz allows its residents to rent out their units for a minimum of 30 days at a time, many residents choose not to.  They prefer to make Veracruz their own private residence.  One walk along the boardwalk to the white sandy beaches beyond and you’ll understand why.

If you’re interested in any of these Cape Marco luxury condo buildings on Marco Island, please feel free to contact me.  As I said before, each one of the six buildings making up Cape Marco offers its own unique take on beachfront living on the gulf.  Let me help you decide which one fits your lifestyle best.

Hideaway Beach: a Marco Island Haven

Hideaway Beach is a Marco Island haven.  Set up on pristine Marco Island beaches, Hideaway Beach residents utilize the Gulf of Mexico as their own personal playground.  And with the Hideaway Beach Club as its centerpiece, you’ll never want to leave.

Hideaway Beach sits on 2.5 acres of beachfront Marco Island property, with golf, tennis, bocce ball, pool, spa and more available.

Hideaway Beach, Marco Island

The private gated community of Hideaway Beach sits on 300 acres of some of Marco Island’s best land.  Developers kept nature in mind when creating this heavenly oasis.  They kept 150 acres of the property as dedicated wetlands and nature conservancy.  This preserves the wonder of Mother Nature’s native flora and fauna and keeps development in check.  Boardwalks have been constructed all around the property to assist guests in studying local creatures in their natural habitat.

The other half of Hideaway Beach’s 300 acres features single-family homes, condos and beach villas as well as vacant land ready to be built upon.  If you want to build your own dream home in Hideaway Beach, you must meet with the Architectural Review Committee.  They approve all renovation and construction of buildings within Hideaway Beach.  This helps retain a harmonious flow to the structures located inside.  But, if you don’t want to mess with that, you might find a condo or home available for sale.  Just contact me to let me know what you’re looking for.  I’ll be happy to look it up for you.

Hideaway Beach Club

The club sits on two and a half miles of beautiful Gulf of Mexico beachfront property.  That means access to some of the most pristine beaches this side of the gulf.  Reserve a chickee hut for the day or relax on a chaise lounge right on the sand.  The Sand Bar offers drink service direct to you.  You won’t even have to interrupt your sun time for a frosty beverage.  When you get hungry, lunch at the Sand Bar is wonderful.  Or, visit the Grille Room or Gulfview Room for a more substantial meal inside.  Cocktails at the Sunset Lounge top off a relaxing day at the beach anytime.

Is the ocean a little too much for you to handle?  Take a swim in the resort-style pool.  The Hideaway Beach Club also offers a luxurious spa for its members.  Get a deep tissue, Swedish or therapeutic massage from one of the club’s licensed professionals.  Do you like to golf?  Then you’ll love the nine hole executive golf course on-site.  The state-of-the-art fitness center offers free weights and exercise machines as well as steam rooms inside both the men’s and women’s locker rooms.  You’ll also find tennis courts, bocce ball and croquet courses here.

As you can see, Hideaway Beach really is a Marco Island haven.  Whether you like to be active or simply want to relax, Hideaway Beach offers something for everyone.  The only problem you’ll have is deciding what to do first.

Eagle Creek Naples: Exclusive Gulf Coast Golf Community

Do you love to golf?  Florida offers literally dozens of award-winning golf courses to choose from.  You’ll find 20 of them in Naples alone.  Thinking of buying a home here?  Then you need to consider Naples’ own Eagle Creek community.

The Eagle Creek community in Naples, FL is a small, private gulf coast golf community with many fine amenities for its members.

Eagle Creek Naples

A relatively young community, Eagle Creek Naples was founded in 1984.  Its 300 acres of cypress, palm and pine tree dotted land helps maintain the neighborhood’s friendly, cozy atmosphere.  With under 500 total homes, Eagle Creek is much smaller than many of the other Naples golf communities you’ll find.

Homeowners in Eagle Creek consist of year-round and part-time residents.  Some homeowners utilize their property as strictly a vacation or winter home while others live here full time.  Whatever your goal may be, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better investment than an Eagle Creek home.

Eagle Creek Golf

The Eagle Creek Golf Course provides 18 holes of championship golfing through some of Naples’ beautiful natural landscape.  Larry Packard engineered this amazing course when the Eagle Creek Golf & Country Club was initially conceived back in 1984.  Mr. Packard received the American Society of Golf Course Architects’ Distinguished Service Award for some of his work.  This puts him in a very elite group considering only three golf course architects have ever received such an honor by the ASGCA.

Other Eagle Creek Amenities

The centerpiece of Eagle Creek living is the clubhouse.  Here, members have access to the junior Olympic-sized community pool, tennis courts, fitness center and bocce ball courts.  Try a Zumba, yoga, pilates or barre class.  Several are offered throughout the week.  Relax in their luxurious spa.  Working out can really ramp up you appetite.  Visit the Crystal Lake Cafe to fuel up after a round of tennis, several laps in the pool or your daily workout in the gym.  No dress code here.  Enjoy an ice cold beer with your lunch right by the pool.

Eagle Creek Dining

The Crystal Lake Cafe is only one of four separate dining facilities on the Eagle Creek Naples grounds.  For casual dining inside the clubhouse, eat in the Grill Room.  Watch sporting events on any one of the three flat screen TVs while tipping back a cold one in the bar.  For more formal fare, come to the Main Dining Room.  Eagle Creek’s talented chefs prepare sumptuous meals catered to the more refined palate.  Do you need a place to host your company’s annual soiree or a fundraiser for your favorite charity?  The Cypress Room provides a perfect location for these events and is open to all members of the club.

Naples Area Yacht Clubs: Boating at its Finest

Do you love spending time on the water?  Boating is one of the most popular pastimes in our Naples community.  The Gulf of Mexico waters warm up to just the right temperature this time of year.  Take advantage of everything the Naples boating life has to offer by joining one of the Naples area yacht clubs.  It really is boating at its finest.

You don't need to own a boat to enjoy the benefits of one of the Naples area yacht clubs. But it does help. Hamilton Harbor, Naples, Pelican Isle & Tarpon Cove await.

Naples Area Yacht Clubs

Many companies offer great boat tours: Ms B Haven, Sweet Liberty, Cool Beans to name a few.  But there’s nothing like spending the day out at sea on your own boat.  Do a little deep sea fishing.  Sunbathe on deck.  Swimming in the gulf.  Who doesn’t love a trip to the Keewaydin or Rookery Islands?  Membership in one of the Naples area yacht clubs grants you access to high end socializing like no other.

Hamilton Harbor Yacht Club

The first one of the Naples area yacht clubs you’ll want to see is the Hamilton Harbor Yacht Club.  It provides some of the best services around but in a very relaxed atmosphere.  Enjoy waterfront dining.  Arrange for on-board catering while on a day trip courtesy of the club’s concierge service.  Fuel up at a discount.  Repair and maintenance services conveniently provided on-site.  Looking for somewhere new to explore?  Ask about the club’s fishing guides as well as their captain’s services.

Naples Yacht Club

They say membership has its privileges.  The Naples Yacht Club is no exception.  This club offers several different types of social cruises, such as their Bahamas cruise, Monday Boaters’ luncheon, fishing tournaments and New Year’s Eve cruise.  In addition to social cruises, they host several regattas each year.  Their weekly dinghy races are fun to watch.  And don’t miss the Key West-Naples Race.  Once you’ve finished your day on the water, come ashore for indoor activities such as the Commodores’ Ball, wine tasting dinners, seafood buffets and themed parties.

Pelican Isle Yacht Club

Who needs a clubhouse when you can have an entire island?  At least that’s the philosophy of the Pelican Isle Yacht Club.  This is the only private island club available in the entire Naples community.  Their marina staff assist with docking seven days a week, 365 days a year.  This gated facility provides 24 hours security.  Utilize the pump out service right in your slip.  Discounted fuel available to all members.  Group Florida and Bahamas excursions offered as well.  When you finish playing on the water, come into the clubhouse for fine dining.  Don’t want to go through the embarking, docking and disembarking process?  Spend the day at the club’s resort-style pool.  Work out in their state-of-the-art gym.  Tennis, pickle ball and water aerobics provide excellent exercise as well.  Need to unwind?  Try a chocolate bliss wrap, therapeutic massage or comfort calm facial in the luxury spa.  Now that’s the high life!

Tarpon Cove Yacht Club

The final one of the Naples area yacht clubs I want to tell you about is the Tarpon Cove Yacht Club.  When you live in Fiddler’s Creek, you’re only a hop, skip and jump from here.  Their marina provides dry docking as well as marina slips to keep your yacht safe when not in use.  Members have the opportunity to relax in the tropical courtyard, complete with pool service.  Their heated pool means swimming all year round.  Sip a frozen daiquiri at the tiki bar any time of the year.  During NFL season, you’re going to want to tailgate here before watching the game every Sunday.

If you love the water, you’re going to love any of these Naples area yacht clubs.  Click on the name of any of the clubs above to find out more about each one.  Luxurious relaxation awaits those who join the club.
