There are times when one needs to get away from it all - Marco Island is magical in its ability to do so and when staying at this property I found total relaxation. Having previously never stayed at a rental home, I thought I might have to go out and buy . . . things. But that did not happen. The property was stocked with plenty of amenities in the way of dishes (for both regular and pool-side dining), towels, plenty of seating around the pool, a great grill, and a wagon and cooler to take to the beach and it is nice to have a two-car garage to use as well. And it was so nice to have a washer and dryer at the house.
The interior design of this property is very appealing with rooms generous in size and nicely appointed to say the least. For instance, the furniture is a thoughtful arrangement, not mis-matched pieces thrown here and there, as if the owners furnished it for themselves and their dearest friends. And the property has a small collection of books and movies, not to mention the flat screen TV's (in the common area and all the bedrooms) giving those who want to stay connected . . . and WIFI connection too!!!! And a POOL TABLE TOO!!!
Then there is the Book at the house to use as a guide: places for food, entertainment, and sightseeing (and I saw dolphins swimming in the canel one day while relaxing at the pool). There is also information about the Island's history and a maps for various venues - one map which is to the beach - and it is truly an easy walk. This book is special because previous houseguests have written comments on places they have gone and if the food or value was worth it - and it lists some out of the way places to discover and explore. This was helpful when making decisions about where to go . . .
The house is in a true residential area, so it is relaxing. The water canal at the back of the house has a place to tether a boat and while most canals do not have direct access to the Gulf of Mexico due to height restrictions (bridge underpass) this one does!!!!
I could not have asked for anything more - I know I will return to experience the dolphins, the beach, the beautiful sunsets - this place can be a week of quiet calm, exciting excursions, or a bit of both.
And last, it was wonderful to have a place that allows the family pet at this property!
