This is truly a home away from home. As comfortable in the completely appointed gourmet kitchen (2 ovens) as my own home. Once we brought home groceries we could have easily never left the house. IT HAD EVERYTHING!!! And no need to rent two cars as there is a very reasonable taxi service. (certain restaurants and pubs - free or a $6 one way fee on Marco Island.
The open floor plan with a wall of windows overlooking the dock and water affords all who enter to be part of the activities whether in the kitchen, family room, or on the balcony. And with fishing equipment we easily caught catfish right off the dock.
But what I loved most was my early morning coffee on the balcony, especially one morning when I was treated to a large pod of dolphins who meandered the waterway for well over an hour. It was a sight to behold.
A plethora of emotions come to mind when I remember our vacation here: Calm, quiet, excited laughter, the endless splashing of water coming from the pool, and a wonderful vacation with good friends made even better because of this amazing home.
