Wonderful house!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. We enjoyed the pool everyday and had fun fishing off the dock. Loved the split setup. Grandma and Grandpa got the master on one side and us and kids got the other 2 bedrooms and bath in the other side. Well equipped even had bikes and kayak. Awesome stay. Thank you!!;!

A Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our little doggie, Cody, spent an incredible two weeks in this beautiful home. Well-located, with stunning views, the home is extremely comfortable and spotless. There was no "warming up" period, we were instantly comfortable. We were in the enclosed pool everyday! The inside of the house met all our needs and since the master is separated from the other 2 bedrooms, my son and his wife had complete privacy when they visited us. The neighborhood is terrific - people are nice and welcoming. This home knocks it out of the park. I would recommend it to any family or couple to guarantee a great experience. We will be coming back again and again!

Beautiful House & Great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week here and the house was clean and very well maintained. The owner's was great and we really enjoyed renting this house for our vacation. They provided bicycle's which we rode every day, They had lots of beach chairs and just anything we needed. This is a beautiful island and a great place to stay. Our family enjoyed our stay and vacation. Great house and great experience with the owners as well as the property manager.

Be careful - this home is not well taken care of

  • 1 of 5

we saw this home on line and it looked lovely. we rented it for a month. at first everything seemed ok until things started to fall apart. the fridge broke, then the bbque, then the shower nozel, then the toilets, then the ants... - say no more. the owner fixed everything but we had to be home to let the trades in. we felt like the project managers. I'm sure there are better homes to rent.

Owner's Response: Honestly. In a combined 28 years of renting our homes, we have never run into a stranger couple than rented our home this past January. Read all of the reviews, they are all 5 stars (a few 4). Trouble started with tenant when he called and said light is on the pool heater. It is suppose to be on. Harborview Realty who manages our home went over to try and see what they could do to help. Every blind was pulled and tenant refused to come to the door. Day 2: Tenant called and said color of flame on barbecue was wrong. He said it was blue and should not be blue. We ordered a brand new barbecue (despite the one at the house being 4 months old) and had it delivered. Tenant asked what time it would be delivered and handyman said between 2 and 4. Tenant was told they did not need to be there to receive the barbecue as it simply went on back lanai. Tenant called handyman 8 times to see where he was, and then me @ 4:01, 4:15, and 4:30 saying this was unacceptable. Emails streamed from him. Again, no reason to have replaced the barbecue nor for him to be there for a new one being dropped off. When handyman arrived tenant refused to answer the door and had all blinds pulled. We always try and make things perfect for every tenant. Day Two: he said ice maker had some ice in back of freezer. It always had done that (8 year old fridge), so we offered to have a new fridge delivered the next day. Lowe's said delivery from 9 - 11 AM. He said fine. Lowe's came to house and tenant refused them entry stating they were eating breakfast and they would have to come back in three hours. Long story short, this tenant has issues above and beyond a vacation rental. Three items were replaced during his month stay (only one of which really needed to be replaced as we were trying to be accommodating).

Wonderful month on Marco

  • 4 of 5

We rented this property for 4 weeks. The house is well equipped inside and out and located in a lovely, quiet neighborhood. When the clothes dryer wasn't working properly, a new was was installed within 2 days! Both the owner and Harborview were great to work with and I'd definitely recommend this home for your Marco Island vacation.

Lovely home to stay in.

  • 4 of 5

We owned a condo in Bradenton for 24 years and wanted to be further south. The weather couldn't have been nicer and the house had everything we needed. We liked being in a home and not riding up and down an elevator. Anything we needed was looked after immediately by the Rental company with just one phone call. One day the washer stopped and there was a repairman there within 24 hours.

A spacious comfortable home with everything needed. Easy to clean and look after while we stayed there.

I loved riding a bike and had multiple ones to choose from. Lovely view and we were in the pool everyday. Some days the pool got too warm and we left the heater off for 24 hours. The weather was fabulous - 80's most days we were there.

We really enjoyed our stay and loved Marco Island.
