Our rental philosophy is simple; we want you to have wonderful and lasting memories of your Marco Island vacation! In April 2014 we purchased our two story, 3,800 sq. ft. island plantation waterfront home with private heated pool, spa and dock.
Highlights of our home include a large upstairs living room, formal dining room and kitchen area with vaulted ceilings, a master king bedroom/bathroom, two queen guest bedrooms/bathroom and a balcony overlooking the water where you can watch the beautiful Marco Island sunsets. Downstairs is our large family room, queen guest bedroom/bathroom, billiard room, wet bar and wine cellar.
Our home is on a quiet, residential street and is ideally located a few blocks walk to the supermarket, restaurants and shops. You can also easily depart from our private dock and be in the Gulf of Mexico within 10 minutes. We have bikes, fishing poles, wifi, pool table, DVD's, board games, pool toys, books....everything you need for the perfect Marco Island vacation! Why stay in a hotel when you can have your own private home, pool and spa for 1/2 the price?
If our home is booked, please consider our other Marco Island vacation home (VRBO #373606 and HomeAway #908223).

A few years ago we were vacationing on Marco Island and fell in love with the island and the community. Although we are still a few years away from retirement, we decided to make Marco Island our retirement home.
The property was as shown on line and described in the listing. Was very well maintained, clean and well equipped with any necessary kitchen and bath items needed. Owners very helpful in the booking process and property manger called to make sure everything was satisfactory. We would certainly recommend this property to our family and friends. Visited the beach, ate at several very good restaurants, as recommended by the owners. Charter fished in the gulf and rented a small boat for touring around the island. Really enjoyed the pool and spa onsite. A wonderful stay at a wonderful place.
I spent the week of Thanksgiving in this fabulous home with my extended family. We couldn't have hoped for a better place to stay! The location is fabulous and the views from the decks are amazing. The owners have thought of everything and there is nothing that we lacked. The gourmet kitchen had everything we needed to prepare an amazing Thanksgiving feast (including two ovens)! The layout of the home is outstanding, with numerous areas to relax and congregate, including a very comfortable living room; a deck with an amazing view; a pool deck with table and chairs, as well as lounge furniture; and, a downstairs den with a TV, pool table, and bar. We left the house on a few occasions, but could have easily remained there the entire time we were in Marco because it was so amazingly comfortable. We will definitely return to this home again!
This is truly a home away from home. As comfortable in the completely appointed gourmet kitchen (2 ovens) as my own home. Once we brought home groceries we could have easily never left the house. IT HAD EVERYTHING!!! And no need to rent two cars as there is a very reasonable taxi service. (certain restaurants and pubs - free or a $6 one way fee on Marco Island.
The open floor plan with a wall of windows overlooking the dock and water affords all who enter to be part of the activities whether in the kitchen, family room, or on the balcony. And with fishing equipment we easily caught catfish right off the dock.
But what I loved most was my early morning coffee on the balcony, especially one morning when I was treated to a large pod of dolphins who meandered the waterway for well over an hour. It was a sight to behold.
A plethora of emotions come to mind when I remember our vacation here: Calm, quiet, excited laughter, the endless splashing of water coming from the pool, and a wonderful vacation with good friends made even better because of this amazing home.
Our family visited Marco Island and had a wonderful, relaxing time in this waterfront home. Not only does the home offer updated amenities such as a gourme kitchen, and front load washer and dryer but they also have extras as such as beach chairs and fishing equipment to use. The furniture and beds were also as comfortable as our home. The home is as beautiful as the pictures show. We would highly recommend this home if you want to visit Marco Island.
Amazing!!!! This home was so beautiful. The kitchen was fully equipped with all your cooking needs. The open floor plan made it easy to be apart of everything while I was cooking. My children spent so much time fishing off the dock. Great location.. Close to shopping, eating, beaches. Dawn was so nice to deal with and helpful with any questions. Fritz, the property manager, was fabulous. He was just a phone call away with any issue and very, very nice. My children said this was the best vacation ever and I totally agree. We will be coming back again next year!!! Don't hesitate to vacation in this home, you won't regret it.
Guests who have recently stayed in our home have said:
'Our family spent a fantastic week on Marco Island in this magnificent home. This immaculate home had EVERYTHING we could ask for and more! And what a great view! Such fun watching the Tarpon rolling in front of our dock. We created great memories, in a great home on a great Island. We will be back and will recommend it to family and friends.' (2014)
'This property has everything that a home away from home should offer! It’s gorgeous, immaculate, has all the amenities you could want, and is located on the water so that you can enjoy the sunrise/sunset from the patio while enjoying the breezes blowing in from the Gulf. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the overall property was incredibly clean – the bathrooms, kitchen and even the laundry area. You can tell that the property owners really care about this place.' (2014)
