This luxurious home, located at 1800 Canby Ct. has been completely remodeled by Jonathan & Beth Hondorf who are renowned designer and builder. It offers 2,050 square feet of air-conditioned living space. The 1,680 square feet of screened-in lanai deck includes a heated 35-foot swimming pool, and an eight-foot spa with a covered area which includes an outdoor grill for outdoor dining.
The home has high ceilings throughout, with light flooding in from all directions. The living and dining rooms have 18-foot ceilings with 12-foot-long sliding glass doors that completely open up, connecting the living area with the lanai. All doors leading to the pool are fitted with special child-proof locks.
The kitchen is completely outfitted for any and all culinary delights and has a large eat-in breakfast area. The spacious master bedroom has a king-size bed, walk-in closets, and a large bath with a separate walk-in shower, soaking tub, and two vanities.
The other bedrooms have pillow top queen-size beds, and there is an inflatable air mattress on a frame for extra sleeping needs.
This waterfront home has a large boat dock for sunbathing. It has water and power along with a fish cleaning table. With its direct access to the 'River Area' and Gulf, it's perfect for mooring up to three boats. Many native fish, Manatees, and Porpoise frequent around the dock.
The private yard is extensively landscaped in native species and fruit trees with meandering paths and boardwalks. We maintain it in a sustainable, environmentally sensitive, method that does not use toxic chemicals. This ensures a safe environment for the native birds a well as our guests. The xeroscaped yard does not require artificial watering thereby preserving our most precisous commodity: water. This means more native birds and a Red Hawk that frequent the yard.
This home has quality finishes, updated features, and amenities needed for a relaxing tropical vacation.

Marco Island is a unigue area in Florida that combines the natural habitat with the developed environment.
We try to MAINTAIN THIS PROPERTY IN AN ENVIRONMENTALLY SUSTAINABLE WAY where we minimize the use of toxic chemicals and harsh environmental practices. Our landscaping is Florida natural landscaping with native species of fruit and flower varieties utilizing xeroscape practices. We minimize the use of pesticides, fertilizers, and heavy watering. It is not an out of control, poorly maintained, landscaping which some may think upon first observation. Guest should take this into consideration and not compare to others that use very toxic, harsh, and water wasteful maintenance practices. This allows for a safer environment for our quests and helps protect the very delicate local environment encountered in south west Florida.

We have been very happy the house this week but wanted to let you know of a few things. There is a crack on the bottom of the microwave door and one on the dining room window both were here prior to our arrival. The micro is usable by all means just wanted you to know.
The house is very clean and comfortable. Everything else has been really nice.
Thank you for the use of your lovely home, we really have enjoyed it!
We loved our week here! The house is beautiful and well appointed. We loved fishing right from the dock. The location is great, minutes from the grocery store and shopping. The neighborhood was nice and peaceful for our early morning runs and we enjoyed having the bikes so we didn't have to always use our car. We rented a boat for the day but didn't dock it. (We aren't that boat savy) Hated to leave Marco!
House was perfect, setting was perfect! Owners answered any questions we had in a timely manner. We had a great relaxing time in the home and pool. Wish we could have stayed longer! Wish I would have taken my boat!
We've been going to Marco for 13 years. This is the third, and best, place we've rented for three weeks. We're already booked for 5 weeks in the future. We liked the two other houses we've rented during our years going but this house seemed larger, mostly because of the very high ceilings, it had a lot of natural light and both inside and out was absolutely comfortable and engaging.
If you like sun this may not be your place. If, like us, you want to be outside by the pool and be comfortable most of the day out of the sun it is the perfect spot. The vista of the waterway is wonderful. The pool side and hot tub area are never bathed in sun and so are most comfortable the whole day. The proximity to shopping is great but the area is all residential. We'll hope to go back for many years to come.
The private garden at the side of the house is just an amazing addition. You can even wander about.
Owner is helpful and responsive. Spacious home and lanai.
The house is set on a boating canal and it is a pretty view. The lanai overlooks the canal. Unfortunately , my husband and I could not really enjoy the lanai because it was in disrepair. A large section of screen was ripped and blowing in the breeze. There were patches of black mold and dirt over all the floor and the furniture was covered in dust and dirt. The area carpets were covered in mold and grease and heavily stained. The barbeque grill should be thrown out. The grill was very small and covered in a lot of rust, caked on grease and rotted food on the grill surface. We never used the pool because we questioned the condition of the water. The main house was fine. A few blinds need repair and most things are dated but that did not deter us from enjoying the house. There was Wi-Fi but bring your own laptop. Found the password to use the Wi-Fi after looking on a desk in one of the bedrooms. It was on a scrap of paper. There is no real instruction booklet for the use of amenities. There were way to many clickers on the coffee table and not a lot of instruction. We did enjoy our stay on Marco Island and it was nice to stay in a house. We were able to park our car in the garage and the house is in a very central location to get everywhere you want to go on the island. The house was comfortable and spacious. We appreciated that the house was available because we booked it at the last minute.
Great boating, fishing, and access to the spectacular Everglades. Our home provides quick access by car, bicycle, or boat to the areas many amenities. By bike or car you can get to the beach, restaurants, movies, golf, tennis, shopping, museums, and entertainment. By boat it is quick access to the Gulf of Mexico or the backwaters for fishing, exploring, or fun on Marco's beach or numerous barrier islands beaches without the people crowds.
The dock can accommodate large or small boats that you own or rent one at the local marinas nearby. You can also fish or sun bath right off our dock.
The house is close to Naples with easy access to Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Everglade City, and Ft. Meyers. Beautiful beach sunsets!
Golf: There are numerous golf courses within several miles of home.
