About Susan Heren

We are from Michigan and have been married for 26 years with 4 children. We have many wonderful memories over the last 30+ years in Marco Island. We visit as often as we can in Marco Island but our children and their schedules keep us from being there as much as we would like. Therefore, we hope others will enjoy our home and all that Marco can offer when we can't be there.

Susan Heren purchased this house in 2001

Why Susan Heren chose Florida South Gulf Coast

We built this home in 2001 when our kids were little. They have grown up vacationing on Marco Island since 2001. Now, they are grown and we hope that many other families can enjoy all that Marco Island has to offer. This property is an easy walk to the beach. Sidewalks all across Marco make for safe and easy biking and the weather is always beautiful!

What makes this house unique

This home is a wonderful place for entertaining or just enjoying your family. The wide open floor plan allows for visiting while in the kitchen, breakfast nook, great room and even the pool area. The large lanai is great for the BBQ while the kids enjoy the pool. This home is beautiful yet comfortable and best of all, a short walk to the beach!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Thank you for sharing your home with us. It was everything we hoped for amd more. From towels to dishes, there was not one thing we needed. The home was spotless and everyone treated it as if it were their own. For our week it was a home filled with laughter and love. The memories will last a lifetime. Thank you once again."

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great location w/ terrific floorplan. The beach is a short walk away. Beach toys, wagon and coolers are provided for fun in the sun. When not on the beach, our kids "lived" in the private, heated pool. The owners are fantastic...helpful and easy to reach.

Love This House

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property. Our family has rented many houses at various locations for our beach vacations but once we found this one we Knew we had found our perfect vacation home. We are now repeat renters because we like the house as well as the owners outreach and support to their renters. It is a great location - easy walk to south end beach and to shopping, food and movies - and the house is clean and well stocked. There is also lots of opportunity for family time at the house with puzzles, books, games, DVDs and a pool. It really feels like home. The owners make the rental process easy by providing lots of useful information about your visit in advance and by responding to all questions. Definitely a great home to rent.

Perfect location especially with grandchildren and 10 min walk to South Beach.

Perfect, like Marco island

  • 5 of 5

Just a fabulous stay in this wonderful, modern, and clean home. It was perfect for my family of 6 (my wife, 4 children, and I). Served all of our needs beautifully, comfortably. The beach was literally an easy 10 minute walk from the home. Marco island is certainly the finest location to vacation in Fl in my opinion. Quiet, peaceful, with very friendly residents / fellow vacationers. Perfect for a family hoping to avoid the Spring breakers. My children have already requested we book this fine home for 2016. Oh yes, the owner was incredibly friendly, responsive and helpful especially within the first few days of the stay when the number of questions those who are staying in the home tend to be high in volume : )

Fantastic time, fantastic house

  • 5 of 5

This was the second year in a row that we have stayed at this property, and it was just as perfect as last time. The house was clean and uncluttered and had everything we needed. Kitchen was well-equipped, pool area and lanai are nice size. The kids really enjoyed the bicycles in the garage when we took a bike ride to Mackle Park. We rented a boat one day and there were plenty of coolers to pack all necessary food and drinks for a day on the water. While we prefer to drive to Tigertail Beach for the bulk of our beach time, the house's location is perfect to walk to South Beach for sunset at night. A couple of our favorite restaurants are withing walking distance as well. Just a great all-around home with a bedroom for each of our 3 kids, which is always a luxury. The owner is friendly and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend the property.
