Fantastic Family Getaway In Quiet Marco Island!

  • 5 of 5

We came down from Atlanta, GA to spend some time with family, somewhere near the ocean. This home was perfect, as it was built so that adults and children could all enjoy it. Spacious, clean, and with all comforts included. You can walk to the shops and restaurants, which is an added bonus. Most amazing, as we absolutely dread them, the back porch and pool area are completely covered by a mosquito net. Being next to the canal is perfect for some early morning paling or catch and release. We definitely plan to go back next year!

Very quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a peaceful place, away from the traffic and crowds during Spring Break, you have found it. My wife and I spent several days here for "alone time". It's nice to sip coffee on the deck and watch the boaters heading out and back. Close to groceries and dining. I highly recommend this.
