Why joe/amy luccaro chose Vacation Homes in Marco Island

After vacationing for several years in Marco, we finally bought a home of our own. And we love it! We had looked at many homes in Marco. The minute we walked into the house and saw the view, we knew we had found our get away home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

" Our stay in Marco was wonderful- we enjoyed our vacation as much as we could. And your house was just perfect for our big family. Many thanks for everything!

Simply Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My family spent the week of December 27th at this wonderful home. The place far surpassed our expectations. Its location was tucked at the end of a cul-de-sac overlooking the river, far removed from the hustle and bustle of Marco during one of the busiest weeks of the year. The spacious, immaculate home had amenities for play such as kayaks, bikes, basketball pool hoop, board games, as well comfy lounge chairs for just lulling the hours away poolside/dockside. It was the perfect welcome to the New Year.

Meadowlark home

Absolutely Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at this Villa, and I dont think we would look anywhere else if we were staying on Marco. The Villa has the most perfect location, sitting on the dock looking out to the river with a glass of wine in your hand - perfect.

The villa has been updated since we first used it back in 2011 under new owners, and it looks great. It was spotlessly clean and had everything we could possible need.

On our very first day in the villa we had 4 manatee swim by the dock, also a couple of dolphins and several rays.

My son spent many an hour fishing off the dock - not much luck - but he still enjoyed it. He and my husband took advantage of the bikes in the garage and cycled round the island, which they enjoyed.

The owners were helpful prior to our holiday, and our deposit was returned very speedily at the end of it. What more could we ask for.

I hope we shall return to Marco Island in the future, and if so we will certainly be re-booking this villa. Its a little piece of heaven.

I love Marco!

  • 3 of 5

I have rented this house for close to a decade and love the location. 361 Meadowlark allows for very quick access to the open waters which, if you are a boater, alleviates long idle zones typical with many interior homes. I am a boater, I love the dock, the boat lift and the newly operational dock hydro, and boat wash capabilities. There are many more expensive rentals on the island and I expect they would come with better house features but I go to Florida to be outside and you cannot beat the location of this house.

The house is located on a very quiet cul de sack which is very safe for our two small people. The neighbours are pleasant and helpful and with new owners this year, some much needed changes were made.

Although we found the en-suite bed too hard, other house additions were welcome... new furniture, new appliances and new air conditioning. We look forward to returning and seeing continued improvements to a wonderful place. Changes made to date bring a fresh new look to the house and many nice touches were made.

Marco itself is a dream and I would love to move there!! It is safe, quiet (in the summer) and the fishing is fantastic. There are many things to do in the area and it truly is the gateway to the everglades. Five star amenities exist around the corner and in a short drive you can be in the heart of the everglades, away from everyone and everything... except mosquitos!

I cannot wait to get back and am already planning to do so!

What a view from every angle

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I along with another couple where so pleased when we pulled up to this beautiful home on Marco Island. As we walked through the home it was just a pleasure to see the views looking through all the sliding glass doors out to the water. From sitting at the outside table, lounging in the pool, sitting on the dock to cooking on the BBQ grill, you have a beautiful view from every angle. The homes interior is just as beautiful and well maintained. The home also came with fishing equipment, bicycles, kyaks, and so much more. It was a pleasure to work with the homeowners, Amy & Joe, they answered every question we had and promtly as well. What a fantastic place to vacation!!! We are already talking about next years vacation on Meadowlark Court Marco Island.

A Perfect House

  • 5 of 5

The pictures and info on the house do not do it justice. From the moment we walked in the door we were in love with the house. The view is to die for. The house was immaculate and everything ran smoothly. The pool was the perfect temperature and clean as a whistle. The outdoor shower was wonderful. A little bar of soap and shampoo and after a lengthy swim I was quite refreshed. We never touched the air conditioning as it was a perfect temperature when we got to the house. We ate every meal out on the lanai at the big table that is there. There were more chairs in the garage if we needed them. We were all able to find shade on the lanai if we wanted it or bask in the sun on one of the lounge chairs that were out there. The house had anything you could want from bicycles, kayaks (were we never got to use unfortunately), beach chairs and umbrellas, right down to coolers if you needed one. The bedrooms were quite comfortable as we had guests part of our trip. I just can't say enough about the house and we certainly hope we will be able to rent the house again.

Four adults went to the Shy Wolf Sanctuary in Naples one morning. You do need a reservation for visiting and I do think kids would find this a great place to go and meet wolves, cougars, prairie dogs, and guinea pigs. TheFakahatchee Strand Preserve is also another place to see alligators, birds, snakes, etc. Pelican Bend on the Isle of Capri is outside dining for lunch and very very good. Mango's on the Esplanade is very good for breakfast.
