An awesome place

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time while in Marcos Island at a lovely home. Beds slept great...the air conditioning worked awesome and the kids loved the pool. Suggest going to Naples for the beach, wasn't impressed by the beach at Tiger Tail, but was worth the trip there to just say you have gone. Everything was just as promised and I'd go again. Landlord is awesome to deal with. I suggest mosquito spray and citronella though, they are serious there lol...but with the screened in pool area, unless you are fishing you didn't have to worry about it.

I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for sharing your beautiful Marco Island home with my family. It was fantastic, the view down the canal was amazing, and the weather perfect. My family had a wonderful time. In all our years of vacationing in Marco, we felt this was the best. I appreciate you making it available to us. Thank you!

Best wishes,

wonderful vacation property

  • 5 of 5

This home is perfect for a family vacation. It is centrally located on the island and has a fabulous pool . The owner Wayne is very quick to answer all your questions and the manager of the property Lori is near by if you need her. It is on the waterway and you can relax and enjoy the view while having your morning coffee. Would definitely recommend this home to anyone travelling to the island.

I Have stayed in many different homes and vacation in many different spots in the United States and by far this home is at the top of my family list. I want to thank the Dobbs family for sharing their home with my family. From the start in booking our vacation, during our stay, and after our vacation was over. Wayne made us feel like family. This is one area that is very hard to find in our crazy world we live in these days. The space this home offers and location and price can not be top. The Dobbs family couldn't have a better care taker then Laurie who is your contact person while you stay. Any question or help Laurie was always there to help without any hesitation. I feel that's another major plus while picking a location for your next vacation. My family loves to cook and this place offers everything you could dream for. From the full stock kitchen to the gas grill, to many areas in the home for large groups for sitting and dinning. The space inside the screen in patio with the pool, fans, chairs and tables, and half bathroom is a must see. Inside the home is everything the pictures and words used to explain on this site is true, but I would have to say just double it of the WOW factor. Large four bedroom, three full bathroom is a must with large family and this location offers every bit of it. Another thing that I think is important is location and this home is maybe at the most three blocks from the grocery store and fuel and anything else you may need quick. Very easy on and off the island with only one road leading off the island from the home. I want to thank the Dobbs family again for all the great memories they allowed us to have by sharing their home with us. Thank you Wayne, Joan, and Laurie for making this vacation a great getaway.

Fun in Marco Island

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent time - we enjoyed our Marco Island vacation and the use of your house. The house was more than spacious to accomodate everyone in our group. We really appreciated how the kitchen was fully equipped down to the smallest items. Also it was handy to have books and games in the study. Everyone had a great time in the pool. We also made use of the gas grill for lunches and dinners. We were lucky enough to see a pair of dophins in the channel behind your house. Thank you again. Everything was perfect.
