The Riverside Club complex contains 275 one-bedroom units overlooking Factory Bay. The views are some of the best on Marco Island. The complex is located in the northernmost area of the island, about a five-minute drive to the beach. You’ll love watching the pelicans and dolphins cruise by from the lanai of your unit. The famous Rookery Bay reserve is visible from the peninsula, and you can also see untouched flora of Stingaree Island across the bay. Riverside rentals are perfect vacation condos for short-term or long-term holidays.
Most units at Riverside Club are available for rent, and they are extremely popular throughout the year. They make for a perfect Marco Island vacation rental. Let’s find out why.
All units at Riverside Club rental condos are facing the Factory Bay. Across the bay, looms the wilderness of Stingaree Island while some units can also see the coastal residences of the Isle of Capri. The resort is secluded from the busy places on the island, ideal for those looking for a peaceful vacation.
This northernmost point of the island is notable for its marinas, with three of them located right next to the resort. Dolphin Cove and Pelican Pier Marina, as well as the marina at Factory Bay, are all within walking distance.
The neighborhood has countless exciting places to visit – restaurants, bars, shops, galleries, bike rental shops. Since the resort has plenty of parking, bring your car or rent one to see everything the Marco Island/Naples area has to offer. It won’t take you more than 10 minutes to reach any part of the island, and downtown Naples is only thirty minutes away.
The minimum rental policy of the Riverside is just one day. Many condos on the island require at least seven days and most require vacationers stay at least 30 days. The one-day policy makes Riverside extremely attractive and in high demand throughout the year and a great alternative to expensive hotels. Whether you have a long weekend to spend or will be here all season, Riverside rentals can serve your vacation needs. Remember, pets aren’t allowed. This policy is typical of all short term rentals on the island, except maybe some houses.
All rentals are one-bedroom units and are pretty spacious. The sizes range from 800 to 1000 square feet, and they all have balconies overlooking the bay. All properties have large living areas and functional kitchens, along with all of the essential amenities for a comfortable stay.
The resort’s amenities include a fitness center and private swimming pools in the backyard overlooking the marina and Factory Bay. The resort also has two tennis courts.
With a little advanced notice, finding a rental at Riverside is easy since the majority of the apartments are on the rental market. Check out online vacation rental websites like Vrbo and Airbnb, and you can find some very affordable listings. For significant savings, though, book direct with Sun King™. During the off-season, the average rental price is around $130/day, but it spikes to over $160/day during peak season.
The places surrounding Riverside Club offer all kinds of water sports. A scuba diving service is just a few steps away, providing you with an opportunity to explore the deep-sea world up close. Also, all of the marinas in the area offer kayak, jet-ski and boat rentals.
Since Factory Bay offers fast access to the Gulf of Mexico, you can spend a day, or several, sailing around the island. You can visit the Ten Thousand Isles, go deep-sea fishing, or enjoy a peaceful cruise at sea.
The area is full of well-known restaurants. The reputable Snook Inn is known for great grouper sandwiches, affordable prices and tasty cocktails by the water. Also, don’t forget to visit one of the historical landmarks – the location of the first ferry landing. Before the highways were built during the 1930s, this was the only way to reach Marco Island from the mainland.
Short-term rentals and affordable prices make Riverside an extremely attractive place to vacation on Marco Island. The community offers privacy and peace, hidden away from the crowded beaches and populated commercial areas.
You’ll love seeing the tropical wildlife, overlooking the peaceful Factory Bay and anchored boats swaying in the breeze at the marina.
