When I asked Mona Fohlbrook, the Manager of Eagle's Nest Beach Resort, how she would describe Eagle's Nest, she answered without hesitation, "comfortable, warm and inviting... a family-friendly place with lots of activities for both adults and children". One of four Hilton Grand Vacations® affi liated properties on Marco Island, Eagle's Nest Beach Resort offers 96 spacious one and two-bedroom suites with screened balconies, some in gorgeous beachside villas and some in the tower, which commands incredible views of Marco's beautiful cres-cent beach. All of the well-maintained suites have fully-equipped kitchens, luxurious living rooms and all the comforts of home. It's the sort of friendly place that, once you fi nd it, you have little desire to go elsewhere. "The own-ers here are very committed and involved with the property - some of them have been returning for 28 years", Mona told me. She herself has been at the resort for over 25 years and at least half of the 22 staff members have been there for over 11 years. New owners are welcomed at weekly owners' meetings and many owners, who purchased the same week(s) each year, have made lifelong friend-ships with other guests. There are even some, who were children when they fi rst started visiting, who now return here every year with their own children. And no wonder... aside from the pristine white sand beach, which stretches as far as the eye can see both north and south of the property, and the Gulf of Mexico, there are many other activities to enjoy. These include a host of watersports, which are available just steps from your room. Eagle's Nest also offers a variety of amenities including a fabulous pool, lush landscaping, two hot tubs, a poolside snack bar, kids' organized activities and games room and a well-stocked sundry shop. Other on-site services include massages, manicures, pedicures and hair braiding. And then, of course, there are all the amenities of Marco Island and the Everglades, right there on your doorstep. In addition to all this, when you own with Hilton Grand Vacations®, you are also able to take advantage of exchange options at thousands of other resorts and have access to more than 3,700 hotels worldwide. There's rarely been a more affordable time to purchase a lifetime of grand vacations. For more information, call 888.400.3599.
