*** Major Advantages of Staying at Sand Star Villas ***
Many Marco Island rental units are in large, crowded, multi-level condominium developments where units are stacked on top of one another and you can hear your neighbors on all sides. At Sand Star Villas, there are only approximate 18-20 units arranged in two townhouse rows; no neighbors above or below you. The community is exceptionally quiet and is virtually never fully occupied, even during high season.
Many condominium developments on the island require you to park in a parking garage and walk a very long way, upstairs, by elevator and around past other units to reach your unit. At Sand Star Villas, you park directly in front of the unit and within 8-10 steps are comfortably inside the unit.

About the owner: Originally from Washington, D.C., I spent 10+ years living and traveling overseas and have decorated my home with items from that time abroad.
My parents, who help me with property management when I'm not on the island, are retired and live down the street, and are available to assist with any issues that might arise
Quiet condo on Marco
Location is ideal - walking distance to shops, restaurants, etc. Condo is sunny, pleasant and comfortable, equipped with nice extras like propane grill, beach chairs, cooler, plenty of towels. Host is great!-professional, reachable, responsive and accommodating. Neighbors ( owners and renters) are friendly. It was nice having no pets in complex. Heated pool was warm enough most days- on colder air temp days, pool cooled down a bit too much. Enjoyed our stay in this quiet location and plan to rent again next year.
