About The Owner

We are Dawn and William Espy and we have four children

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose Marco Island

We have been coming to Marco Island for family vacations for the last fifteen years as my parents own a home there. We visit Marco Island when school is out, on Holidays and summer breaks. We all love it there and have such happy family memories. We have been looking for the last five years to buy a home and found this home last April.

What makes this house unique

We love be around the pool, it is fun to sun, swim and eat outside. Even on a rainy day we can sit under the covered lanai and enjoy the fresh air We live in the north and do not get to be outside a good portion of the year, so this is very enjoyable to us. We also love to go bike riding and spend days at the beach. There are so many nice restaurant close by which we enjoy frequenting. Even when we have to work on the computer, we have wireless internet and can sit out by the pool. From the porch we also enjoy watching the fish dolphins and manatee that frequent our canal.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a delightful stay in your lovely home! It was perfectly located on Marco Island, the price was right, and everything in perfect working order. We were pleased to receive a phone call from Dawn shortly after our arrival to make sure everything was ok, and we also received another phone call the day before we left to wish us a pleasant trip home. She couldn't have been kinder or more helpful! We are so looking forward to booking again next year!

Awsome holiday awesome rental!

  • 5 of 5

If I could design a vacation spot it would look exactly like this rental. If I could design a landlord they would be exactly like these folks. My contact with the owners has only been through the lovely wife and she is just a treat. When there has been a maintenance issue (and what Florida residence doesn't have them) the problem has been looked after immediately and cheerfully.

The photos in this listing are very good but they didn't quite prepare me for how large the unit actually is. All this space is wonderful. The pool is very comfortable and the covering lanai encompasses the entire back end of the house. So roomy and and quite glorious. This home was immaculate when we arrived and even the garage floor looked clean enough to eat off. I won't describe the house as the photos are all you need and they represent the house perfectly.

The landlords have supplied us with wonderful wireless internet service which I am using to write this review. The also arranged the daily newspaper which keeps us up to date with the local news.

I will say that everything works as it should and there seems to be nothing lacking for a wonderful stay.

If you want a great meal out, even though the kitchen here is awesome, then try "Guy and Lisa's Philly Grille". See the reviews and their #2 rating on Tripadvisor.com

I think the best proof of our satisfaction is the fact that we rented this unit for Jan 2014, thus putting our money where my mouth is.

Making Memories

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to add to our families memories. We had a party of four adults as this wonderful home. The home was extremely clean, beds extremely comfortable and very well equiped! We throughly enjoyed the updated kitchen as we even cooked a turkey and held an early Thanksgiving dinner with four additional family memebers. The home was so comfortable we had a hard time pulling ourselves away to enjoy some of the other local sites. In addition we put the bikes to good use and toured the island on a daily basis. We would highly recommend this home to anyone visiting the area and we hope to return someday in the future too.

WOW!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Great property! Best we've ever experienced and the best equipped by far. If you can't have a good time here, you might as well stay home. Weekly pool service keeps it clean and equipment in good working order. Pool's southern exposure is a plus for winter visits. Excellent access to the Marco river and the Gulf of Mexico from the property's private dock. Owners are attentive and proactive with any issues that may arise. We were mightly impressed with the Marco community--probably the cleanest city in America--upscale without tacky developments like mobile home/RV parks or amusement parks. Many good restaurants nearby and easy drive to Naples for added attractions. Beach is beautiful, but access is limited by the city. We are definitely coming back soon!

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We spent Christmas and New Year's at this lovely house and the pictures do not do it justice. The house is very comfortable. It is not pretentious, you aren't afraid to put your feet up. You feel totally at home from the minute you walk in the door. We have been renting for 15 years (summers and winters) and this house is the best equipped of any we have rented. The location is excellent for getting around Marco and getting on and off the island as well. We had the pleasure of meeting the owners and they are wonderful people who go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your stay. We are very much looking forward to returning! Thanks Bill and Dawn
