Our family of eight (which includes my 71 yr. old parents) just got back from spending 5 fabulous days at this property. Our family has been vacationing at Marco Island for at least 15 years. We usually stay at a beachfront condo. However, as our children are now young adults, we thought a house would be a better choice. We are so glad we chose this house! The house is very spacious, and comfortable. It is centrally located, close to the beach, and entertainment. There is beach access by two different locations, the Marriott and South Beach. If you choose to walk to the beach, the walk takes 10 to 15 minutes, depending on how fast you walk, and which route you take. (Yes, we timed it!) If not in the mood for walking, you may drive there and park. The drive takes literally a couple of minutes. There are bikes available, as well. Our young adult "kids" loved riding the bikes to the beach in the evening, to watch the amazing sunsets. There is a hydrobike on the boat dock, which the kids rode along the canal, admiring the rest of the beautiful houses. Although we did not have enough time to use them, there are two kayaks in the garage, which could be taken throughout the canals. The house has a beautiful formal dining room, which unfortunately, our family did not even get to use it once. Since the lanai has plenty of seating, we ended up having all of our meals outdoors! The kitchen is well equipped, with plenty of china and silverware. We even got to grill one evening. The pool was very refreshing to come to, after a hot day at the beach. The property is clean, and well maintained. Don was a pleasure to deal with throughout the rental process. He was very thorough, explaining everything, and providing all contact information to local services on the island, in case something went wrong during our stay (which I am happy to say, nothing did!). This is a beautiful, spacious, comfortable house, which actually felt like home! We definitely recommend this property!
