Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Lynn,

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.

Dolphins every day

  • 4 of 5

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...

I love this house, I will be renting again soon.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Best Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

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.

perfect stay

  • 4 of 5

Dear Lynn,

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.

Good, but wish it was better

  • 3 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry that the house was not as expected, but I would like to address some of the concerns. There is absolutely no construction next door. There are no plans to build a house, now or in the future. I believe seawall repairs were performed next door. The work is complete and the construction equipment is gone. The hoist is not for guest use, but there is plenty of space to dock a couple small boats or a large boat. The garage is full with the owners cars, so I'm sorry there is no room for guest use. I can confirm that the house was empty for the week prior to this stay. In the future, we will need to lower the air conditioner early in the day to provide a comfortable temperature at check in. The pool is not enclosed in a screen cage because that would block the view. Consequently, leaves and other debris occasionally fall into the pool. We provide a pool net to help in between weekly cleanings by our pool company. I can't speak to the condition of the kitchen at check in, but most of our guests comment about how clean our crew presents the house. If the guests had communicated with me, I would have sent my cleaners out right away to correct the situation. Unfortunately, I didn't hear anything from the guests until this review was posted. Some nice updates were done to the kitchen shortly after this rental. I'm glad that the family enjoyed their stay despite the problems they encountered. The house really is a special place with great fishing, comfortable outside space and fantastic views. In fact, we have two sets of repeat guests who have stayed at the house five times each, and counting. I'm confident that we provide a fabulous vacation spot at a great value. I hope you will consider it for your next getaway.

Perfect location and great dolphin watching

  • 4 of 5

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!
