We had a wonderful vacation. The house was perfect and we were reluctant to leave. Please thank the owners for providing the high speed internet access. It was definitely a plus and enabled us to search for restaurants and places to go.
We also enjoyed the quiet location of the house and the fact we could walk to several restaurants of differing cuisines.
As to Marco Island, it was our first time there and our impression was that, with the exception of the house, it doesn't live up to its prices, especially in the restaurants. The meals were generally good but for the price I would have expected excellent. In general it was the presentation that let us down. The Olde Marco Restaurant was an exception. It's an expensive restaurant but the food was excellent and well presented and the service exemplary. I have to admit we didn't verture far from the area we were staying in.
That said, we will go again. We loved the island and will explore it further next time, and for longer.
Many thanks for your help.

This is a comfortable house with the usual amenities. AC worked especially well. Our kids enjoyed the pool and the dolphins that swam nearby regularly. (No fence around the pool and channel, so watch out with small children.)
We all loved the view of the mangrove bushes and the boaters passing by.
You need a car to get to the public beach which is a shell lovers' paradise...
House has some upgrades that are not seen on the pictures, Like Plasma TV in the Living Room, Terrace and Master Bedroom.I love the location of this house in the water, very short no wake zone when leaving the property you will be in open water in a few minutes and the view is second to none.
This home was wonderful. Everything was perfect. Having small children and a baby, the Sunroom with such close proximity to the pool was my favorite, made it easy to sit with baby and still watch the others. The fishing was ok (not the best time of year). Watching the dolphins swim right next to the dock every afternoon was amazing. This place was the best. I hope to visit this home again next year.
what a wonderful place to stay for a big family like us with mum, dad, 5 year old son, grandpa and grandma and AuPair.
We saw real Manatees swimming around the dock, of course a lot of Dolphins, we catched a lot of fish and had a great time seeing the parade of ships passing by. Our son loved the Pool which was perfect for him because he could stay at the front side and can improve his swimming skills. Even the wether was not so good it was a great holiday.
Thank you for your very helpful informations and the easy access to everything.

My family enjoyed this house a lot, but there are some issues that I hope they fix before someone goes to this home again.
I will begin with the bad.
When we arrived the house was so hot that we had to stayed outside for a while to let it cool, this tells me no has had oocupied the house in a while, it was still 11PM when we where able to be confortable in, this most likely has to do with the air unit that is old.
Then we dealt with the all pans, utensils, plates, glasses, they were all dirty, my wife had to clean the entire kitchen as it was definetly not clean, and if they did then a poor job was done.
There was a car in the garage, that did not let me keep the Jet Ski in the house, I had to pay storage for it, then there was a boat on the lift, I was never told about this so my boat had to stay in the water all week, not a big deal but wish I knew before hand.
Now to the contraction next door, this was the killer, there is a home being build next door, they have trucks working from the early morning up until 5PM, not quite the silence I was expecting.
Pool was dirty up until Monday when a crew showed up to clean it, two days after.
Other than that, the house is comfortable and spacious, beds are nice and firm and it has all you need, just wish they cleaned it and advised of whats going on during a particular stay.
We have vacationed in Marco Island many times, but this is the first time in a private home. The location was wonderful with just a 2 minute boat ride to the Gulf or a 2 mile drive to the public beach. Everyday we watched manatees and dolphins from the dock. The house an older, Florida ranch style, which was comfortable and clean with many amenities. The extra large lanai gave great relief from the hot sun. It was great having a laundry room to use. I wish they had a gas grill available at the house, otherwise we had a perfect vacation and were sad to go home!
