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 Marco Island

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your input Sir, we receive mostly 5 star reviews. We are so sorry that you didn't care for our furniture but value your opinion. We replaced the living room set that you were referring to at Christmas. It pained us to as the previous furniture was from a high end Italian Company and it was designed to have a distressed look, especially as it ages but we take our clients concerns seriously. We also added a brand new flat screen television in the living area and upstairs den. Please know that our home has be furnished with top of the line brands such as Century, Bernhardt, Casa Stradavari & Tommy Bahama. Thank you again for your input.

This place is the best. My family (age range from 3-65) has been vacationing in Marco for the past 10 years. Once we found this house, we stopped looking at other places to stay. This is by far the best house/owners we've ever had. George is always quick to respond with anything and the house is always perfectly charming, cozy, and yet stately (in a good way). The pool and dock are the best. The room setups are great too. We'll be back!

Fabulous Family Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

We just enjoyed an amazing week at this great home with our family. Perfect layout for multi generational family time. We had our 82 year old mother with us, along with our son, daughter in law and 13 and 4 yr old grandchildren. The kids loved it. The house was supplied with toys, games, videos, pool games, bikes and even bed time story books!! The pool is just the right size for family fun and the dock was so convenient to dock the boat we rented for the week. My son loves to cook and was blown away by the number of variety of kitchen gadgets, he was able to put together a gourmet meal with ease. We were even blessed with perfect weather, with only one mid week thunder storm that allowed 'the ladies' to do some shopping at the very convenient mall of specialty shops only two blocks away. A very adequate publix was also in that mall, so made it very easy to pop out for anything that we needed. Beds were very comfortable and there were plenty of linens! It was truly a dream vacation!!

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything that is listed. Wonderful location, easy to find, close access to shopping, restaurants, and beach. This is our first family vacation as 'empty nesters' with our adult children and their significant others and everyone loved staying at this home. The house was homey and had everything we needed. Plenty of space for all 8 of us. The pool, hot tub and dock were wonderful. The kitchen was perfect for cooking dinner or making lunches to take to the beach. Outdoor electric grill was a little tricky to learn to cook on but worked perfectly for burgers and brats. There are bikes, fishing poles and pool items for use. The views from dock were amazing, and beautiful sunsets every evening. We even saw dolphins swim by twice during our week long stay. George was very helpful and easy to work with and was always just a text or email away. We would highly recommend this home for your next Marco Island get-a-way. Thank you for a wonderful vacation.

My husband and I went went with friends to vacation at this property and was blown away with its beauty when we walked in. We fished off the dock a little bit and saw a couple of dolphins and a manatee. Can't write a review without mentioning the master bath and shower. Wow! The owner was super to work with. It was a great get away!
