Guestbook comments from the owner
Just a note to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your lovely villa on Marco Island. We had wonderful weather, did lovely things and had great meals in beautiful Marco Island. We really enjoyed an airboat tour and swamp buggy tour at Wooten's, enjoyed a plane trip from Everglades City over Marco Island and the Ten Thousand Islands, Rookery Bay and we also enjoyed some lovely "quiet" times by the pool and in the jacuzzi. Father Christmas paid us a little visit too! We had a lovely meal at Marek's on Christmas Day but also enjoyed a lovely meal and lovely setting at Capri Fish House. We also liked Mango's and it was great for gluten free. Once again, thank you for the villa, we hope we left everything in order. Best wishes from all of us for 2013.
