WALK TO BEACH, GORGEOUS WATERFRONT VIEWS ON TARPON BAY, BIG HDTV, WIFI

Vacation Homes in Marco Island Villa Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This tip-lot home is at the end of a cul-de-sac facing Landmark Bay, one of the most sought-after wide-water views on Marco Island. The home is designed for indoor-outdoor living, with sliding glass doors from three different rooms leading to a large, screened lanai and heated pool.

A public entrance to the widest beach on the island is a 6-minute walk from our home. Tigertail Beach, outstanding for bathing, birding and shelling, is a five minute drive and South Marco Beach, also wide, is a ten minute drive. Rookery Bay bird sanctuary is a short drive up Route 951. And for golfers, there are several signature courses close by.

For those who like to fish, Landmark Bay is called Tarpon Bay because it shelters baby tarpon year-round. It is not unusual to occasionally see four and five-foot tarpon splashing about just off the patio dock.

Landmark Bay also hosts a variety of small fish (snapper, sheepshead porgies, cravalle jacks, ladyfish) and an occasional snook coming to hook. Also, dolphins cruise through the bay on a regular basis, popping to the surface in their acrobatic display. Several fishing rods are available on the lanai.

In addition, there is much bird life on the bay, including many pelicans, herons, egrets, ibis, spoonbills and, of course, seagulls. On occasion, you might spot an osprey, hawk or owl. There also are colonies of burrowing owls on Marco Island.

The single-story home has a 165-foot seawall with a 20 x 18-foot patio dock jutting into the bay. There is an attractive step-down living room for entertaining, a full, formal dining room, and family room with parquet wood floors throughout (except for the bedrooms, which are carpeted).

For entertainment, there is a 46-inch Sony Bravia HDTV and a Sony Blu-ray player. There also is a Comcast DVR that allows archiving of current Comcast TV programs and movies for later viewing. Secure high-speed Internet service is provided throughout the property

Most of your time probably will be spent outdoors on the screened lanai, which is furnished with a glass-top dining table and chairs and a breakfast bar, which can be served directly from the kitchen. On the lanai is a wicker set with a love seat, lounge and chair, a good place to read a book and/or watch the children while they are in the pool.

For those who love the sun, the patio dock will be the draw while at home. There are several chaise lounges on the lanai that can be moved easily to the dock. And fishing from the dock, ahhhh!

Guestbook comments from the owner
We, 2 adults & 3 kids, stayed in this great house a week and enjoyed everything. From the great lay-out, to the views, the space, the attention to detail (all things needed for the beach included) the walking distance to the ocean and the tranquility. And it is true: every day we saw dolphins coming by! Of course also lots of other animals: fish, birds. Our first night we were extremely lucky and saw a manatee. The possibility to fish on the dock is great (caught a barracuda!!). Every night we sat outside at the pool and enjoyed the nature around us. It is a great spot and a fantastic house for a vacation with or without kids. And last but not least the homeowner was very easy to do business with even with us leasing from Europe, no hassles in terms of leasing agreement, return of deposit.

We are two retirees living in Colorado, who visit Marco Island on occasion,

One look at the wide-water view of this home is all it took to convince us to move from a condo.

Minnesota temporary snowbirds

  • 5 of 5
We spent a wonderful week at this Marco home. The location is ideal with just a short walk to the beach (about 3 blocks). The lanai, pool and view of the bay are exceptional. We have stayed in three private homes in Marco and this home is by far our favorite. The owner is easy to work with and communicates promptly. The home is well maintained and well stocked with everything we needed. We look forward to renting this home again when we return to Marco!

Stay on Marco Island

  • 5 of 5
We chose to stay at this house on Marco Island because of the internet reviews, its waterfront location and proximity to the beach and we were not disappointed. We are a family of 5 adults and we had plenty of room . We enjoyed fishing off the dock and spotting the occasional dolphin . The location was ideal and the view of the bay was delightful as was the pool . We were staying at the house when Hurricane Issac passed by but felt very secure and had no problems , the owner kept in regular contact to ensure all was ok . Would love to return in the future

Owner's Response: I was concerned about how our guests from Europe might react to a tropical storm. Our home has storm shutters all around, so I called and walked them through buttoning up the house before the storm hit. They were real troopers and said the storm was not bad at all. I really appreciate their kind review.

FINE HOME - SUPERB LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This is a fine home in an absolutely superb location. There is a beautiful view of the Bay, and the access to the Gulf of Mexico beach is nearby. Favorite activities included several long walks on the nearby beaches

The listing was entirely accurate, but if anything it understated the natural beauty of the spot. We were a couple without children or guests, but the space was more than adequate for our needs. Our one request to the owner, sent by email, was promptly answered.

The property was clean, well maintained and more than adequate for our needs. The pool was attractive though the cool weather caused us to use it only a bit. The private dock on the bay was a favorite spot for afternoon tea or evening cocktails. One evening just before sunset, we were entertained by porposes just of the dock.

We used the in-house wi-fi extensively.

We hope to return and would recommend this property to friends.

Outdated furniture and decor, but amazing location, size, cleanliness. We got to watch dolphins from the lanai and dock each morning was priceless. We would definitely stay there again.

WONDERFUL FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
OUR FAMILY VACATION TO PLUM COURT WAS EXCEPTIONAL. ALL THE PHOTOS LISTED IN THE PROPERTY DESCRIPTION DID NOT DO THIS HOME JUSTICE. THE HOME WAS CLEAN, PLENTY OF LINENS, DISHWARE, AND SPACE FOR A FAMILY OF 4. THE HEATED POOL (WHICH WE PAID EXTRA FOR HEAT) WAS GREAT. OUR KIDS REALLY ENJOYED THE POOL. MY SON AND HUSBAND FISHED EVERYDAY OFF OF THE DOCK AND CAUGHT NUMEROUS VARITIES OF FISH. THEY HAD A FANTASTIC TIME FISHING!!! WE SAW DOLPHINS THE FIRST DAY WE ARRIVED AND MANY JELLYFISH OFF THE DOCK. WE ALSO SAW A HUGE MANTA RAY JUMP FROM THE WATER!!! WE DID NOT GO TO THE BEACH OFTEN AS THE KIDS PREFERRED TO STAY AT THE HOME. THE ISLAND IS BEAUTIFUL! MANY PALM TREES AND WATERWAYS. WE USED THE BBQ GRILL ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS WITHOUT ANY DIFFICULTY. THE OWNER WAS VERY EASY TO WORK WITH AND ANSWERED OUR QUESTIONS WITHOUT HESITATION. OUR SECURITY DEPOSIT WAS RETURNED WITHIN 1 WEEK AFTER OUR DEPARTURE. I WOULD DEFINATELY RECOMMEND RENTING THIS HOME AND WE WIILL RENT AGAIN HOPEFULLY THIS UPCOMING FALL SEASON!!! THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING US TO RENT YOUR BEAUTIFUL HOME ON MARCO ISLAND!!!

Owner's Response: I very much appreciate this wonderful review. But, I was concerned about his assertion that he "paid extra for heat" in the heated pool. I wrote a thank you note to Michael and asked about that. His response, was: "Our mistake, John. Sorry."

Belle maison, bien situé!

  • 5 of 5
Après notre passage à Walt Disney, nous avons fait un séjour d'une semaine à Marco Island. Nous n'avons pas été déçu!

La maison est situé à environ 10 minutes de la plage, qui est magnifique en passant. Elle est très large, avec une mer relativement tranquille, ce qui est parfait pour les jeunes enfants.

La maison est très bien, nous y étions 4 adultes, 2 enfants et un bébé, et l'espace y était suffisant pour tous. Tout était très propre à notre arrivée et tel que décrit sur la fiche. La maison est très bien éclairé, bien équipé et possède une belle piscine qui a été apprécié de tous. Nous avons aussi profité du canal à l'arrière de la maison, où nous y avons pu observer le passage de dauphins lors d'une journée.

Le propriétaire a toujours été très prompt pour répondre à nos courriels et nos questions. Il nous a d'ailleurs fournie une chaise haute et un parc pour le bébé suite à une demande que nous lui avons faite.

Je vous recommande donc cette maison sans hésiter si vous devez passer quelques jours dans un secteur tranquille et a proximité des services à Marco Island.

Vous pouvez voir quelques photos que nous avons prise à Marco Island lors de notre séjour :

=========================

After our visit to Walt Disney, we made a one-week stay in Marco Island. We were not disappointed!

The house is located about 10 minutes from the beach, which is beautiful in passing. It is very wide, with a sea relatively quiet, which is perfect for young children.

The house is fine, we were 4 adults, 2 children and a baby, and there was enough space for all. Everything was very clean when we arrived and as described on the form. The house is well lit, well equipped and has a beautiful swimming pool that was enjoyed by all. We also benefited from the canal at the back of the house, where we have seen the passage of dolphins during a day.

The owner was always very quick to respond to our emails and questions. It has also provided a high chair and a park for the baby following a request which we have done.

Therefore I strongly recommend this house again if you need to spend a few days in a quiet and close to services in Marco Island.
