Overview

Vacation Homes in Marco Island House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, Estate (Sleeps 10) Southern Exposure, Heated Oversized Pool

You asked & we listened. We've added:

- TWO KING BEDROOM SUITES

- a HUGE 1,000 square foot pool sun deck to maximize the sun to compliment the 20 x 40 ft oversized pool

- New Bathroom Renovations

- a 50' flat screen TV, and

- Free Wireless Internet.

You’re coming to Marco Island for the sunshine. Make sure you can enjoy it!

When you’re contemplating which property to rent on Marco, pay close attention to the pool area. Is the pool large enough for your group to enjoy? Does the pool get sunshine throughout the day? Are there sufficient lounge chairs and multiple seating areas outdoors for everyone? Is there room to move furniture around to catch the sun? Given that most people come to Marco for the sunshine, you’d be surprised how many places don’t offer these things. Many of our guests comment that they came for the beautiful beaches, but find they rarely leave. Why should they? Our pool area faces the 'all important' south direction for maximum sunshine throughout the day and is one of the largest private pools on the island. We have enough outdoor lounge chairs & tables for large groups to relax around the large 20x40 foot, heated, in-ground pool.

The unique layout of our home offers more privacy (and quiet) than other homes which is important if you're on vacation. Our 4 bdrm/4.5 bath home is located at the end of a peaceful cul de sac. The unique layout of our air-conditioned home with 3 different buildings in an L-shape design (all under one roof) built around the pool provides extra space and privacy for guests. The main building has the living room, formal dining room, modern kitchen and breakfast bar, Master King bedroom & bath. The second building has 3 bedrooms (Another Master King, a queen & the Upstairs room has a queen bed and 2 single beds) with 2 more bathrooms. The 3rd building consists of another bathroom, laundry & garage. This stand-alone extra bathroom is great for those that want to get up early (maybe to go for a morning walk/run or escape to Starbucks) and not disturb other late sleepers. The house has been recently redecorated and updated with new furniture and and all new flooring. It is located about 5 minutes away from the main shopping area and many excellent restaurants.

The estate sits on a large 1/3 acre lot and has 260 feet of waterfront 'frontage'. The house has 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, a 2 car garage, and a large 20x40 foot in-ground pool that is electrically heated.

LAYOUT OF HOUSE DESCRIPTION

The layout of the house is fantastic with 3 different buildings in an L-shape design (all under one roof) built around the pool.

MAIN BUILDING

The main building has the living room, formal dining room, modern kitchen, the master bedroom and modern bathroom. The living room has a large 50-inch, flat screen television with DVD player. One of the walls in the living room is all patio doors that overlooks the pool area so people can sit in the living room and visit (or watch TV) while still being able to keep an eye on people in the pool area. There are 3 new sofas so there is plenty of places to sit. The dining room has a formal dining table and 10 chairs. The kitchen has beautiful cabinets with soft-closing hardware and all the amenities including a microwave, refrigerator with ice maker, dishwasher and coffee maker. The kitchen is fully stocked with flatware, pots & pans etc. The bedroom in this building has a King-size bed, TV and modern bathroom with walk-in shower. Linens are included for all beds and there are beach towels as well. Every bedroom has at least a 20' remote controlled TV with cable and some have DVD players.

SECOND BUILDING

The second building has 3 bedrooms (Master King suite with separate vanity and dressing area, a Queen suite with separate vanity, and the upstairs bedroom which has a Queen bed and 2 twin beds in the same room). This building also has 2 more bathrooms. Every bedroom has an entrance to a bathroom.

THIRD BUILDING

The third building consists of the pool changing room, another bathroom & shower, the laundry room (which is nice because it's away from all the sleeping areas) and a large 2-car garage. The bathroom is located near the pool so people don't have to run inside the house while they're wet. This bathroom is popular for those that like to get up early and not disturb other late sleepers or for runners that want to get their early morning run in and come back and shower while others are sleeping.

POOL & DECK

The large, 20x40 foot in-ground pool, is heated by both a solar cover and a heater. The pool sits on the south side of the house so the sun is shining on the area for most of the day (perfect for sun bathing). The large, 1,000 square foot deck was heavily researched to be built with the most modern materials. It is made of a newly developed composite material (not wood but feels & looks like wood) so kids do not have to worry about getting splinters in their feet when walking around the pool area. It is also much cooler to the touch than wood.

The house is perfect for families or up to four couples.

NEIGHBORHOOD

This property is a 7 minute drive (13 minutes by bicycle) to Marco Island's fabulous 3.5 mile powdery white sand beaches. The property has water access to the superb inland waterways in the Marco Island-Naples area, is beautifully decorated, fully equipped and air conditioned.

Thank you for taking the time to read about our home. We would love to have you stay here. We encourage you to email us with any questions.

Why Deborah chose Vacation Homes in Marco Island

My uncle moved to Marco Island when it was being developed in the late 1960s. He chose this island versus other parts of Southwest Florida because it has the best weather and most sunshine and couldn't understand why everyone was developing elsewhere. The beautiful powdery white sand beaches on Marco are some of the best in the United States. I like the fact that although the island is only 4 miles by 6 miles it is accessible by two bridges and has all the modern amenities without being crowded. There is a wonderful feeling being in Marco Island. I chose this house because of the unique layout and the history of the home. Back when the island was being built there were 5 phases of development. The 3rd, 4th and 5th phases were stopped when it emerged that the 4th and 5th phases were going to destroy valuable mangroves. The developers then lobbied Washington and Richard Nixon himself to broker a deal to allow the development of the 3rd phase as long as they didn't develop the 4th and 5th phases. The house was built for Richard Nixon who stayed here during his presidency and during his visits to Marco Island. The layout is unique because they had to develop it for the secret service staff as well as the president.

What makes this house unique

Although most people come to Marco Island for the beaches we consistently get the comment that most people loved the idea that they could completely relax at the house without having to go anywhere. With the unique layout guests have the flexibility to get up when they want without disturbing others, make meals when they want, go fishing from the pier, layout at the pool on the beautiful sundeck, visit in the living room while watching the kids swim in the pool, check their emails while laying out by the pool (if you call this a vacation) or spot dolphins or manatees from the backyard. Everyone can move at their own pace without disturbing others - a true vacation for all.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We arrived here in the hopes of escaping the oppressive heat back in Chicago and were delighted to find it cooler here! Between my parents (age 60) and the others (me = 30, my husband 34, my sister = 33 and our sun 8 ½ mos), we felt the house was perfect for our needs. We loved the annex due to the perfect napping atmosphere it provided for our infant. We loved the pool and spent the most time there since the beaches were too far too access by foot. Had drinks out at the Snook, The Brewery and Quinns at the Marriott.

Loved Lee Be Fish, but good luck catching them when they’re open and not out fishing! One of our best meals was from Joey’s Pizza. Although others gave it mixed reviews, we ordered some great salads and good pizza – and they deliver!

Had a great time overall even though we never saw one of the elusive manatees or dolphins

Great House and Pool

  • 5 of 5

The layout of the two houses was ideal for our group of 6, two couples, one cousin and one brother in law. The two couples each had a bedroom, and our cousin and brother in law had their own bedrooms. The bigger house was just the right size and very comfortable when we were all together for meals and just spending time together. Pool is extra large with plenty of room for floats and noodles. We didn't even go to the beach our second week, we were so satisfied with the pool and pool deck.

We found the owners to be very conscientious and concerned that every little detail is just right.

A Great Venue for Family and The Holidays

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned to the frigid north after a wonderful 2 week stay in your home on Marco Island. It very quickly became "Home" as we got the pool, grill and kitchen just right for us and settled in. Both the indoor area and poolside/dock areas were spacious clean and inviting. The pre-visit document that we received about the house was perfect and and questions we had when we first got there were answered promptly. Our party of 7 adults and a 4 month old had plenty of room for interaction or quiet time with the separate living quarters working out perfectly. Definitely need a car. We highly recommend this home!

LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION. THE BEST EVER

  • 5 of 5

We are home in time for Christmas and the chatter amongst the 10 of us around the dinner table will be about the fantastic vacation we had on Marco Island while staying in your home the first week of December. We would be some of the first renters to enjoy the comforts of the many upgrades you completed over several weeks before we arrived. Your home stood to the test of providing the comforts of home to 4 kids ages 2-6. Their 4 parents and yours truly the grandparents were able to relax and spoil ourselves and keep a watchful eye on the kids to ensure their safety in the pool and the canal property. We had the luck of the Irish with temps 85 every day. We were fortunate to see Manatees in the canal two days in a row. On Thursday afternoon during a high tide we had 3 dolphins entertain us. How good is this.!!!! I should recognize the nice touch with beach/pool towels, pool/beach toys, and fishing equipment that was available to use. Ten of us rated this your Marco vacation home "The Best Ever" .

Perfect - Exceeded our expectations.

  • 5 of 5

I want to thank you for our stay at your home. We have now returned back home. We (family of four) traveled from Finland for a family wedding in Marco Island, Florida at the Marriott. Florida in August? - we were worried about the heat, but it was excellent. We combined our holiday with a week in Disney and then a week in Marco Island. My brother's family (who lives in St Louis) and my family shared this home. Everyone in my family likes to fish and we were surprised by the excellent fishing in Marco Island. We chartered a boat and guide from Rose Marina and most mornings we fished and when we returned to the dock they cleaned the fish while the pelicans sat nearby waiting for the scraps. They are funny birds. In the afternoons we enjoyed the house pool while the kids rode their bikes on the connecting streets which were quiet, safe and a convenient cul-de-sac. We played golf twice at the course just over the bridge which was very reasonably priced at this time of the year. The wedding was pleasant on the beach and everyone enjoyed the beautiful sunset. We liked this house very much because the pool was big, the kitchen was open and airy, the house was cool during the hot days (which we were fretting at first) and it was clean and quiet. The house looks like it has been recently remodeled/updated which exceeded our expectations. The neighborhood is very quiet. We used the outdoor grill a few nights which was a typical American evening to do. My brother's family loved the house and they want to return in the winter time when it's colder in St. Louis. For us it was the perfect vacation and your home couldn't have been better for us. Thank you for making it so easy for us.

Owner's Response: After coming so far, we're very pleased you enjoyed your stay and found the house to your liking. August is one of the warmer months, but as you found, the gentle breezes and pool make for a very enjoyable stay. We hope your brother's family will visit again and find refuge from the Missouri winter.
