My brother, Jim, told me that if you pick a name like that, your looking for trouble. He also said that 'You better be able to back that up with a home that has tons of 'Wow' factor.' Well, I think we have that covered. As you read on I am sure you will come to agree that there is no other house on Marco Island (or anywhere else we know of), that combines this unique blend of charm, luxury, attention to detail and sheer elegance into any residence, much less one that you can make your own as you create your very own 'Marco Magical' vacation memories to cherish for years to come.

Royalty applies a concept of 'Scaling' the bed/bath configuration of make it affordable for smaller groups. Basic rates (quoted in the rate section) are based on the home being rented as a 4 bed, 4 bath configuration to 8 people or less. This home can be scaled up to a 6 bedroom, 4 1/2 bathroom home with inflatable mattress in the playroom to support sleeping for 14 total.

First, lets talk about location. the words 'Yeah....we got that!!!'immediately leap to my mind. Royalty is located adjacent to Leigh Plumber park. Leigh Plumber is a wonderful, passive park (no noisy sports stuff going on), with a duck pond and walking path. We especially like bringing bread over to feed the duckies and geese that call the park their home for much of the year

Royalty is majestically situated on a quiet Col-de-sac on the North side of the island just minutes drive to the Judge Jolly bridge. The central nature of Royalties location makes trips to shopping on Collier and San Marco a snap. Tiger Tail beach, with it warm white sand, tropical breeze and majestic views is just a short drive either by car or bicycle. The 'Out' to Marco River by water is about 6-8 minutes. Having built several times on Marco previously, we knew how to attend to every detail a discerning renter looks for. These details were integrated into a smooth, free flowing design.

Let me share with you a little bit of the process we went through, as I believe the pictures speak best to the result. First, we took what in my opinion, one of the nicest waterfront lots on the island. A huge factor was that this lot offered loads of waterfront viewing opportunity. We have front and rear waterfront views from both the first and second floors. These are not just a typical 'Cross Canal' views. Royalty's back looks down the canal toward the west allowing for your enjoyment of Marco's incredible sunsets while you bask in the pool or spa. Of course we have a dock (actually 2) and 2 wave runner lifts (bring you own waver runner).

Another key learning we applied was that size really does matter when it comes to a Vacation home. People want space to spread out and enjoy themselves. Even small parties like the ability to explore different areas in a home and seek out the place they feel most comfortable.

About Paul Demos

Allow me to introduce myself and my family to you. I (Paul) am in my mid 40's and work for a Fortune 100 Company in the Information Technology field. Until August of 2002, we lived in Rockaway, New Jersey, a small town in Morris County. In August 2002, we moved the family to Marco Island.

My family and I came to Marco Island for the first time in December 1998 and immediately fell in love with its peacefulness and beauty. By the time we had left, we had made offers on several of the premier lots. By mid January 1999, we had purchased a wonderful waterfront lot and began looking at builders for our ultimate 'Dream Home'.

We built a wonderful 4 bedroom, 2 bath home which we called Serenity. Our plan for Serenity was as a 'Vacation Home' initially. Then a friend suggested we rent her to other families when we were not able to enjoy her ourselves. I, of course, being a bit of a Techie decided to Learn how to Publish on the WWW and build web pages. I was amazed at how little information people were providing about their rental homes and created my web site, www.marcomagic.com as a place to provided 'Full Disclosure'. I also spent some time learning how 'Web' marketing worked for vacation homes.

Well demand for Serenity in 2000 proved so strong that we added Seacrest so that we could offer people a 'Short Walk to the Beach' home that had many of the features people were looking for. Serenity was an incredible home, which we sold in 2007 when we completed building even a more fantastic home called Royalty.

Royalty was really build for our family to live in, but given the beginning of the economic decline, we decided to maintain a less extravagant lifestyle. The resulting home, however, was everything we could envision someone wanting. It was a painstaking process that required daily care and monitoring. Royalty took almost two years to complete. Personally, I feel the result was well worth it.

Paul Demos purchased this house in 2006

Why Paul Demos chose Vacation Homes in Marco Island

Royalty has everything...space, warmth, splendor...and Quality. We have a wide water view, a great location when going anywhere on or off Marco....and it was built as my DREAM HOME....so I spared no expense.

What makes this house unique

Table and chairs in the pool (yes in the pool)...and park right outside...amazing water views...and a very quiet location from which to explore Marco Island

You will not do better than this.

  • 5 of 5
Having just returned to the UK we feel we must comment on our recent stay at Royalty. We are frequent visitors to Marco and have stayed at many different homes over the last eight years. We discovered Paul & Linda's homes some years ago and have rented all of them at various times since.
Having spent a fantastic five weeks at the Seacrest home we were preparing for our return to the UK on the 04 October 2008 when Paul contacted us and asked if we would like to extend our stay and offered his Royalty home for two weeks free of charge as a thank you for our past custom.
We immediately changed our travel plans, extended our car rental and spent a fabulous extra two weeks in one of the nicest homes on the Island. This home has got everything and is just a delight.
All Paul's homes are beautiful and equipped with just about everything that you will need for the holiday of a lifetime. He is always available, with a direct line from each of his homes to attend to any problems that may occur and have them put right ASAP.
Enough to say we are looking forward to return for an extended holiday next year.

Owner's Response: Ken and Mal have stayed in my homes for years and I consider myself fortunate to have them return year after year.

We work hard to make every guest experience one that encourages a guest to NEVER consider looking anywhere else.

For special, long staying, repeat guests we try to find EXTRA ways to show them how much we value their choice of our home. In this case, we were lucky to have been able to do so.

Great week at Royalty

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 9 (ages 18-55) spent a wonderful week in Marco Island at this beautiful, upscale home. The owner was very responsive from initial contact to making sure everything was good during our stay. The house is very clean and well maintained, light switches labeled, appliance owner manuals well organized and electronic equipment instructions in each room. We travel often and use VRBO.com to search for our lodging and this house rates near the top in amenities. The location is in a quiet section of the island but close to restaurants and grocery shopping, Publix is less that 1 mile away. The beach is approximately an 8 minute car ride or 20 minutes on bikes. There are public tennis counts approximately 5 minutes away (nominal fee). We spent most days in the pool and enjoyed the audio/music both indoors and poolside. The dock out back was a perfect place to catch fish and enjoy the waterway. The kids enjoyed the game room, foosball and many video games that were available. There are TVs in every room and plenty of space to relax on two levels. The pictures and description accurately reflect the house and all it's amenities (including beach towels, beach chairs, beach and pool toys, pack-n-play, high chairs, fishing poles, bicycles, and much more).

With many options to choose from we would highly recommend looking at Royalty when planning a trip to Marco Island.

Perfect vacation home for multiple families

  • 5 of 5
This house is great for 2 families. We had 9 people stay for a week; family of 4 and family of 5. It was set up perfectly for that with 3 bedrooms, each with an attached bath, downstairs and then 3 bedrooms upstairs. The only downfall was that there was only one bathroom upstairs.
The amenities for our boys, ranging in ages from 6-11 were fantastic. There was plenty for them to do with the docks for fishing, the pool and spa, outdoor basketball hoop, and all the indoor games. We used them all!
For someone who has never been to Marco Island, this house is not near the beach but was an easy 10 minute drive and parking was always available. We loved being on the canal and getting around Marco was a piece of cake. Everyone is so nice and everything is so beautiful and well kept.
I would go back to Marco and rent this home again in a heartbeat!!!

Marco Island Family Trip (Royalty at the Park) ...

  • 5 of 5
We visit the Island every year and our visit this year was one of the best. Our family size was 10 guests and the home had plenty of room for each family to have their own space. Royalty at the Park was above all of our expectations and was a pleasant place to stay at. The Owner was easy to contact, and available when needed. His attention to detail and condition of the home in which we stayed was like staying at a 5 Star Resort. The Owner has taken a great deal of time to make a families stay the best it can be with the design of the home, amenities, overall comfort, and expectations of staying on the island. We have rented from others on the island before, and this experience went above and beyond our other stays. We recommend and are currently looking to our next visit to being arranged with one of the homes the Owner has.

Awesome Family Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5
Royalty was a dream come true for our family! We traveled with a group of 14 and everything was beyond our expectations. There was plenty of room in the house and on the pool decks for us not to feel cramped. The amenities are top notch! Of course the pool, spa, tv outside on the deck and the audio system in the house were among our favorites. We ate in all week and grilled out on the awesome Weber grill! Feeding 14 is a task and could not say enough about the double oven and double dishwasher. Ranging from 8 to 65 all of us loved everything about Royalty and hopefully in the future will return! Thanks Paul for everything! We too had to call Paul a few times with an Island power outage and he always took our call and was extremely pleasant and helpful.
