Location, Location, Location: Location is very important for a Marco Island vacation home. Our home is only 4 blocks to the beautiful South Beach entrance so it is very easy to walk or bike to the beach. Be careful of properties that may be close to the beach but are not close to a public beach access. Also Southern exposure is important and our pool and lanai has a great Southern exposure.
Outdoor Living: Our home has a large 15 x 30 pool and a fully screened in 1700 square foot Lanai for a great outdoor living space. This will accomodate a good size group without feeling crowded. This is a much larger outdoor living area than most Marco vacation homes and a great place to relax.
Waterfront Location: Our Southern Exposure Waterfront Canal location is a great feature even if you are not into fishing or kayaking. The canal makes for a much more spacious outdoor setting and offers privacy and long views. Kayaks and fishing gear provided in the garage. Relax on the dock and look for dolphins and manatee.
We live in Humboldt, Iowa where I sell industrial equipment for a local manufacturing company and my wife is a High School teacher. When we retire we hope to be able to spend more time at Marco Island.
We have always loved Marco Island and bought this vacation home with (3) other couples. We try to travel as a group to the house once a year to make some improvements and enjoy Marco. The location close to the beach and the large Lanai and pool is what really sold us on this house.
We stayed in this house for a week a had a great time! The location is wonderful and we walked the beach every morning before the kids were awake. The pool area was much larger than the house we rented in the past and the Southern exposure was perfect. We loved the large dock for fishing and a neighbor pointed out a manatee to us in the canal. The kayaks provided many hours of free entertainment and it was fun paddling thru the canal to the Gulf. We would Highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation.
Our family of eight (which includes my 71 yr. old parents) just got back from spending 5 fabulous days at this property. Our family has been vacationing at Marco Island for at least 15 years. We usually stay at a beachfront condo. However, as our children are now young adults, we thought a house would be a better choice. We are so glad we chose this house! The house is very spacious, and comfortable. It is centrally located, close to the beach, and entertainment. There is beach access by two different locations, the Marriott and South Beach. If you choose to walk to the beach, the walk takes 10 to 15 minutes, depending on how fast you walk, and which route you take. (Yes, we timed it!) If not in the mood for walking, you may drive there and park. The drive takes literally a couple of minutes. There are bikes available, as well. Our young adult "kids" loved riding the bikes to the beach in the evening, to watch the amazing sunsets. There is a hydrobike on the boat dock, which the kids rode along the canal, admiring the rest of the beautiful houses. Although we did not have enough time to use them, there are two kayaks in the garage, which could be taken throughout the canals. The house has a beautiful formal dining room, which unfortunately, our family did not even get to use it once. Since the lanai has plenty of seating, we ended up having all of our meals outdoors! The kitchen is well equipped, with plenty of china and silverware. We even got to grill one evening. The pool was very refreshing to come to, after a hot day at the beach. The property is clean, and well maintained. Don was a pleasure to deal with throughout the rental process. He was very thorough, explaining everything, and providing all contact information to local services on the island, in case something went wrong during our stay (which I am happy to say, nothing did!). This is a beautiful, spacious, comfortable house, which actually felt like home! We definitely recommend this property!
We had a wonderful 2 week stay at this house. It was very spacious, plenty of room for our family group of 6 adults. Living and family rooms both have big screen tvs and plenty of comfy seating (they have upgraded some of the furniture from what is shown in the photos). The pool was nice and warm, and the location was great, an easy walk to the beach (be sure to check out the burrowing owl couple at the corner of Swan and Seagrape on the way to the beach). Also an easy walk to the Marco Walk area with restaurants and shops. We had great meals at DaVinci's and Marco Prime. We loved being on the canal, and had a blast pedaling their tandem hydrobike around the canals. We didn't try the kayaks, but they were there. Also used the bikes in the garage. Owner was great to work with.
Our family of 8 just returned from a week at this house. The house was very much as advertised. The pool was warm and a great size. An easy walk to the beach and restaurants. We also used the grill daily. The house was very clean when we arrived. It also has an excellent sound system. We enjoyed our stay and hope to visit again soon!
Marco Island is located far south on the Gulf Coast of Florida. Just minutes from the city of Naples which offers great shopping, first class golf, wonderful restaurants and live theater. Marco is a beautiful beach resort community with commercial fishing tours, boat rentals, spas, great restaurants, outside dining and wonderful shops. Take the boat shuttle for a quick trip to Key West for the day! It is an easy drive to Everglades National Park or to South Beach in Miami. Marco Island is a fun and friendly get-a-way - winter or summer!
