This lovely Marco Island residence and its' upscale home amenities was a FABULOUS find for our picture-perfect, weeklong getaway! The residence is situated among other pretty homes on a quiet, beautifully landscaped residential cul-de-sac (we loved this). It was within biking distance to the pristine beaches along Marco's Gulf coast, a large park, the many beautiful hotels on S. Collier and some cute breakfast/brunch nooks we enjoyed. This home boosts attention to detail! It is elegant, yet totally comfortable. From the backyard pool/spa on a peaceful lagoon, to the fully equipped gourmet kitchen with every cooking tool one could need or want while at home or on vacation, to the spectacular master-bath (and I do mean spectacular), Plantation french-door bedrooms with access to the pool deck, a den/entertainment area with a comfy leather couch and bar where we enjoyed evening cocktails while music streamed throughout the house, an outdoor patio with a Weber grill where we prepped and dined on some delicious local fish, a lower level sun-deck, a 2 car-tiled garage that led into the laundry room-nice for after the beach, to bikes and pool noodles. This vacation home had EVERYTHING and we are still talking about it ALL! Don't miss out on a trip to Tigertail Beach, a sanctuary filled with Florida's natural eco-systems; and in addition to just enjoying the warm, beautiful aqua Gulf waters from your beach chair, we would also recommend a boat rental from Rose Marina to Keewaydin Island for shelling. We packed cool "beverages", lunch and beach chairs (yes, in the garage) for our voyage and yes, my husband did inquire, "Do we have everything we need, Ginger?" (ref: the SS Minnow) before we set out! Although golf abounds on Marco and in the nearby Naples area, sadly we just ran out of days! A definite for us "next time"! The responsiveness of the owners and their family was no-less than impressive from the time we booked. In advance of our arrival, they made every aspect of our 1st trip to Marco welcoming and wonderfully relaxing. As fairly frequent, 50-something travelers, my husband and I found this VCBO home one not to miss! Our entire Marco Island vacation experience was exceptional. We have already re-booked our 2015 stay in this Marco Island Beauty!
