None of us are really sure what heaven will look like, but from the moment you cross the island bridge, we have a suspicion that it will look something like Marco Island. Beautiful blue skies, sparkling water, palm trees swaying in the breeze, incredible sunsets.....it just doesn't get any better than this.
Marco Island is the largest barrier island of the picturesque Ten Thousand Island chain and just twenty miles south of Naples. Marco Island is graced with miles of white sand beaches, beautiful year-round weather, variety of wonderful restaurants, fine shopping, dining, lively entertainment, attractions and plenty of recreational activities from swimming to sunning to sailing and shelling, from boating and fishing, to golf and tennis, and more! All set amid the stunning subtropical beauty that is unique to Southwest Florida's Gulf Coast.
Why Rent an Island Home Over a Condo or Hotel?
Just try it once, and you'll understand why there is such a large, religious following that will only rent a home and never again a condo or hotel.
Some primary reasons include:
* No elevators
* No stairways
* No parking lots
* No hassles.
* No crowds and no kids (other than your own) running in the hallways, or jumping on you in the pool.
* You can keep an eye on your children from within the comfort of your own house, and can hang around the pool after you put the kids down for a nap, or to sleep for the night.
* No one is stuck in a hotel room with the kids while they are sleeping.
* Lunch, dinner, and even breakfast can be served poolside.
* You can sun bathe in the attire of your choice, in and around your private pool.
* You can invite friends over for a private pool party. The pool does not close unless you want it to.
* Plenty of wonderful space and unexpected amenities for everyone.
My wife and I purchased this home in 2009 after visiting a friend on Marco Island. After living in South Carolina for a number of years and realizing that we like summer weather year round, we have decided Marco Island will be our retirement destination. We much prefer the gulf coast of Florida and we wanted to get as far south as possible and Marco Island 'fit the bill' perfectly. In addition, we are beach people (as you can see in the picture with our daugher and granddaugher creating a mermaid in the sand), as well boating enthusiasts, which is the soul of Marco Island.
The two things that made this house stand out for us was the wide water views that a 'tip lot' provides, in addition to the extra large lanai area and inviting heated pool. With all the outside living that the Florida weather allows you, both of these features were very important to us. Also, while we were sitting on the bench, on one of the two docks, comptemplating our purchase decision, we spotted a manatee and saw three dolphins swimming through the canal...needless to say that was the deal maker for us.
