ECO-FRIENDLY HOUSE ON RESORT ISLAND- 4BR, HEATED POOL, CHEMICAL-FREE

Admiralty House House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Welcome to Paradise. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle, you've come to the right place. We offer an alternative to the impersonal hotel experience in a 2,000-square foot inland home on a quiet, neighborhood street near the Island Country Club. The public beaches are 1.25 miles away. There are no bright lights or noisy crowds to detract from your relaxing getaway.

Our philosophy is to encourage guests to take advantage of all the wonderful outdoor amenities on the island, from the beaches to fishing, sailing, kayaking, personal watercraft and more. The house is equipped with a heated pool, a spacious lanai with full-day sun exposure, cathedral ceilings, central heat and air, dishwasher, ceiling fans in all rooms, bar stools, patio furniture, beach chairs and toys, pool toys, tennis rackets, books, DVDs, board games, bicycles, a portable crib, piano, a pool safety gate and more. There are televisions in the main sitting area and the master bedroom only _if you require a TV in every room, sorry to disappoint.

Another important feature: the home is eco-friendly to minimize your exposure to toxic chemicals. The house was painted using low-VOC paint. There is no carpeting - it is all tile, from the floors to the kitchen countertop. We provide handmade soaps as well as chemical-free and environmentally-friendly products such as toilet paper, dishwashing detergent, dish and laundry soap.

We try to use and help local businesses as much as possible. The furniture includes handcrafted beds and tables from a woodworker in Missouri, our adopted home state (we lived on Marco full-time for several years).

Among our favorite activities are going to Marco Movies (which also serves dinner), eating at Summer Day Market for lunch, walking to the library and Mackle Park, visiting Goodland, a small fishing village, camping and playing at Collier-Seminole State Park just off the island, eating at Food and Thought in Naples, sunset dining at the beach hotels and of course, hitting the water(Weis Guy charter captain, Jodie Weis, lives right across the street).

Our friends and very nice neighbors remain on the island, so let us know if you want to get hooked up to local happenings.

Also, please ask about specials for two or more week stays, off-peak travel and repeat visits. And let us know what we can include to make your family's vacation an even more memorable one.

Guestbook comments from the owner
What a wonderful vacation - the house was everything we wanted it to be and more. Enjoyed relaxing by the pool, going to the beach - the kids loved biking the island. Our favorite place to eat was Joey's Pizza and Pasta on Collier Blvd. It was absolutely wonderful!



We didn't miss the Internet and cable - it was kind of nice to be disconnected for a while, especially with the kids. Thanks again for sharing your beautiful homes with us, Ellen and Alan. We had a fantastic time.

We lived on Marco full-time and like to return each year. The vacation rental allows us to do so while sharing this wonderful place with others.

Ellen or Alan purchased this house in 2000

The person who built this house, built it for her family and added many special details in tile work, placement of rooms, sliders and large windows.

Our street is only one block long and has no traffic. The house has so many nice touches. It is designed after B&B's with out the second 'B'.

AN AMAZING VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
This is our second time renting this amazing house from this lovely couple. They made our stay very comfortable and they were always just a phone call away if you needed them. The house is clean and well equiped with all you will need. My two boys used the pool everyday. This is truly a dream house located in an exclusive area on the Island. The Island and its beaches are a piece of paradise. Combine this with very friendly owners and you have an amazing trip waiting for you !

VAMOS A LA PLAYA!

  • 5 of 5
This vacation has been a fun experience and amazing getaway from home. We enjoyed being so close to the beach and dividing our time at the beach, the pool and riding bikes around the island. We would definitely recommend this place to family and friends.
Overall, we had a great experience and a great time. We loved the spacious home, comfy beds, pool and the great neighborhood. Thanks for everything - we had an amazing time.

ISLAND PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
Rod and I thoroughly enjoyed our six-week stay. Our kids came for a week and had a lot of fun dividing their time between the lovely pool right here and the beach. They also did a lot of biking, as did Rod and I.

We brought our shih-tzu dog, who loved watching and chasing the geckos on the patio. We also spent time at Mackle Park walking the track and taking Annie to the dog park.This was our 12th time on Marco Island -this year we bought a pass to Residents Beach which worked out very well - easy parking and a clean, nice facility.

We had a great time and loved this home.

ESCAPE FROM THE ADIRONDACKS

  • 5 of 5
Two of our children and their families joined us for a week-plus each. We all enjoyed the 85-degree pool and appreciated the mess child fence. We found Marco Island nicely situated for day excursions to the Naples Zoo, the western Everglades and Billy Swamp Safari's air boat rides on the Seminole Indian reservation.
Biking anywhere on the island was a treat. Tigertail was our favorite beach, with its wondeful shelling - scores of sand dollars. We loved wading across the lagoon to get to the ocean. Marco Island offers a sense of community even to tourists, and there are numerous activities-farmers market, arts and crafts shows, Friday night movies in Mackle Park, Marco Movies, guided nature walks and more.
We brought our terrier Gabby and kitty Pearl, who just hung out and looked out the window in the master bath.
Sunsets along the beach are beautiful. Often you will have a dolphin show. The playground at Mackle Park is outstanding. Walks around the little lake are fun. There's also a sprinkler park for the little ones.
This house is very easy to settle into. The four bedrooms accomodated our family get-togethers comfortably. Many extras added a touch of warmth; decorations, DVDs, games books and piano.
We hate to leave and can't wait to return next February.

We had a wonderful visit here. Accomodations were very comfortable, allowing us to make it our home for a week. We enjoyed going to Everglades National Park and recoomend the 10,000 Islands boat tour. We saw several dolphins and spent the rest of the afternoon at Vanderbilt Beach. The next day we went parasailing at Fort Myers Beach and road banana boatas, then went to Sanibel Island and visiting Lighthouse Beach and Bowmans Beach. Spent the remaining days on Marco Island's South Beach. The staff at the Marco Chamber of Commerce was very helpful and gave us a lot of ideas. We will surely return!!
