About George Phy

Having spent over six years visiting Marco Island we decided that it was time to invest in our future. With a background in real estate we recognized that the island was a hidden treasure. In 2005, we found the perfect homesite. It had southern exposure just like the beach! The wide water canal overlooked a park like setting and felt like the ideal location for our dream. We have enjoyed making memories with our family and friends over the years on the island. In 2011, Michelle was diagnosed with brain cancer. Everything changes when you are facing your mortality, you realize how precious every moment with your family is. This only magnified our treasured memories made here. By sharing our home with you, we are enabled to keep it.

George Phy purchased this house in 2006

Why George Phy chose Florida South Gulf Coast

Even prior to our Marco Island Honeymoon in 1993, we spent many wonderful holidays with our parents here. Over the years we watched the property values escalate. In 2005, we found this homesite with southern exposure and a wide water canal overlooking a park like yard. It was the ideal location for our dream .

What makes this house unique

The best thing about our location is that you can walk or bike to most things that you need on the island. You can walk to the Esplanade for shopping, dining, coffee or ice cream. The grocery stores are accessible by boat or land within one mile. You can also take the bike path to local parks or the YMCA. The Tigertail beach is less than 3miles away. A beautiful central location on the island.

We were very happy with our choice of this home for our stay in Marco Island. The location, layout and amenities were just as they were as stated in the on-line advertisement. House was just lovely; plenty of room, and furnished beautifully. Our granddaughter enjoyed the pool immensely as did we. Enjoyed fishing off the dock. We also got to see Dolphins passing by. We rented a fishing boat a few times which again was enjoyed by all. Husband did morning bike ride every day! Also got to see burrowing owls (endangered species). We took a day boat trip to Key West which we would recommend to others. Restaurants and Clubs were close by and again enjoyed by all. We certainly would recommend this home to others.

great vacation with all the family,

  • 5 of 5

The home is not only beautiful and comfortable for 10 adults and two boats; but a perfect location on the canal to get your boat out to the Gulf with ease. Thanks for the memories George!! Our family had a blast and look forward to a return.

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolute wonderful vacation. Thank you for opening up your home and allowing us to make lifelong memories. My son and son in-law enjoyed fishing off the deck and even had a Dolphin swim by, one evening. The house was equipped with everything needed. It was perfect!

Thanks again

Lovely Marco Island home

  • 4 of 5

My review is a mixed bag of comments. We were very unlucky that Florida was having the worse rain for a very long time. The roads were flooded for days so had to stay in the home for three days. We could not use the outside space for many days unfortunately. But that is not the fault of the house itself. The house was beautifully appointed and very spacious. The owners had provided everything we needed. The beds were wonderfully comfortable

The advert says that there is a twin bedroom but however all the bedrooms are double which actually caused a few problems for one of our couples who particularly wanted a twin room. There are not enough bedside tables and lights to read by. Minor though it is, an electric kettle would have been great. The hob kettle is not flat and takes ten minutes to boil!! Unfortunately a house is being built next door and we had to put up with a lot of hammering when we did manage to get outside. BUT the building noise I would think is near to completion.

We were disappointed with the island. You really need to be a water lover to enjoy it. Otherwise it is a huge area of smart houses. We did find some nice restaurants to enjoy though.

All in all the house was lovely,but the weather totally ruined our stay.

I would recommend this home if the weather is great and you really like beaches and water sports.

Beautiful home with all the amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Your home was everything we could have expected and the perfect place for our family vacation! The grandkids loved the pool and fishing from the dock. The bicycles were put to good use. The home was within walking or bicyling distance of much of the island. We have always loved Marco Island and this placed just made it more enjoyable. The family is already talking of plans to stay again in the future.

Wonderful Thanksgiving Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family (all from the Cincinnati, OH area) - consisted of my 77 year old mother, my sister, her husband, their four children (ages 16 to 1), my husband, my adult daughter, and her boyfriend. The home was exactly as described. We celebrated Thanksgiving in the home, and with the double oven, and fully stocked spice cabinet, we were able to have a Thanksgiving to remember. Any questions we had, George was just a text away. All the wonderful restaurants and grocery stores were less than a five minute drive. The master bedroom and bath were a dream and the pool and hot tub were used and enjoyed daily. Additionally the welcome bottle of champagne in the fridge was the icing on the cake. We would recommend this gorgeous home a thousand times over. Thank you George and Michelle for sharing your magnificent home with us!
