Overview

Overview

Vacation Homes in Marco Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Private waterfront home offers, among its many amenities, a direct-access, floating dock and dockside patio, complete with thatched umbrellas (chickee huts), where you can get as much sun or shade as you wish. Southern exposure provides sun all day long for the patio and heated pool (new electric pool heater installed Jan 2014), and you can enjoy watching the fascinating marina view from the shade of the lanai.

Our updated home features 3 generously-sized bedrooms (Master Suite with King bed, Second Bedroom with King Bed, and Third Bedroom with two Twin beds) and 3 full bathrooms. Everything you might need in the home is included, from the generous stock of bath- and beach towels to the well-appointed kitchen. Flat-screen TVs are offered in both the family room and the master bedroom. You'll find pool toys, of course, as well as beach gear, and fishing rods for catching lunch or dinner. Take a two-minute stroll to the marina to purchase live bait, brought in fresh daily, and chat with the salty charter captains to find out what's biting.

Large, sliding glass doors open wide, affording views to the water from almost every room and catching those tropical breezes. This home is within a short distance to Tigertail Beach, walking distance to Old Marco including the Snook Inn, and a short walk to shops and restaurants.

Come, relax, and enjoy!

Great location across from marina. You can walk to marina or boat over from the dock. The screened patio with pool is a great place for the whole family gather

Spring Break from Michigan

  • 5 of 5
Highly recommended! We've been coming here on and off (mostly on) for over 20 years. Three major pluses - clean as a whistle, outstanding location, very good value $.
Just a few things to be aware of:
Not everyting is super up-to-date, e.g. pool furniture - It's fine and will work but if you need Marriott level all the way you may consider something else.
Secondly, be aware that you are directly accross from a busy marina that is active from about sunrise until a little after sunset. Thereafter, very quiet. We personally enjoyed the activity. If one of us wanted to sleep in we just cycled them to a front room.
Finally, no ESPN or premium channels. No big deal for us. We don't go on vacation to watch TV and we went out to watch NCAA Tourney games. But I know this would be pretty traumatic for some of our friends.

Overall - Outstanding. Especially if you like the Old Marco area - which is where we seem to be gravitating to. Many places w/i walking distance. you could almost do this place without a car.

Great Family house

  • 5 of 5
The listing is accurate, great location, loved watching the action in the harbor while relaxing around the pool. House was very clean, and has all the amenities, along with beach towels, chairs and fishing poles. We traveled down with four kids, 12-17 and everyone was happy. The owners were very accomadating and great communication. Would highly reccomend staying at this house and if we get the chance would defiantely go back. Everything on the island is close, so it is easy to get around.

A Fantastic Vacation Experience

  • 5 of 5
We recently rented this property during a family vacation and had a great time. As the description indicates, the view from the patio/dock is amazing! My kids loved watching the boats enter/exit the channel including the dinner cruise ship Marco Island Princess. There are many positives to this property, but the location was at the top of our list. The private dock allowed for great fishing and easy access for the pontoon we rented from the Marina across the way. The garage was full of fishing equipment, so all we had to do was supply the bait.

As for the house itself, it was very clean and recently remodeled including new furniture, large screen TV in the main living room, and fresh paint throughout. The place has 3 bathrooms with showers so it was very convenient for the family. The pool and grounds were well maintained and we really liked the privacy given the open lots on either side of the house. The privacy also made for quiet and peaceful evenings on the pool deck. We typically eat at restaurants during vacation, but the kitchen next to the pool enabled us to prepare breakfast and lunch while the kids enjoyed swimming in the pool.

While we've vacationed on Marco Island for many years, this was the first time we rented a house. We found the property on the VRBO website and engaged the owners by email and phone. It was a pleasure working with the owners to execute the rental agreement and plan for the vacation. The owners were very responsive, friendly and accommodating throughout the process.

I highly recommend this property - you won't be disappointed.

Owner's Response: Chris mentions that there are 3 bathrooms with showers; just FYI, one of the bathrooms offers a tub/shower combination, so little ones or adults who prefer tub baths can also be accommodated.
