Available for winter 2017 due to cancellation! Long time seasonal renter sad to miss this year, but this is your opportunity!
Private waterfront home offers, among its many amenities, a direct-access, floating dock and dockside patio, complete with thatched umbrellas (chickee huts), where you can get as much sun or shade as you wish. Southern exposure provides sun all day long for the patio and heated pool (new electric pool heater installed in 2014), and you can enjoy watching the fascinating marina view from the shade of the lanai.
Our updated home features 3 generously-sized bedrooms (Master Suite with King bed, Second Bedroom with King Bed, and Third Bedroom with two Twin beds) and 3 full bathrooms. Everything you might need in the home is included, from the generous stock of bath- and beach towels to the well-appointed kitchen. Flat-screen TVs are offered in both the family room and the master bedroom. You'll find pool toys, of course, as well as beach gear, and fishing rods for catching lunch or dinner. Take a two-minute stroll to the marina to purchase live bait, brought in fresh daily, and chat with the salty charter captains to find out what's biting.
Large, sliding glass doors open wide, affording views to the water from almost every room and catching those tropical breezes. This home is within a short distance to Tigertail Beach, walking distance to Old Marco including the Snook Inn, and a short walk to shops and restaurants.
Come, relax, and enjoy!

We are the Wackerman Family -- we live in suburban Chicago, and have been coming to Marco Island for many wonderful years. Our kids enjoy water polo, baseball, football, and basketball, and we all love to escape the questionable Midwestern weather to fish, snorkel, swim, and play in the beautiful Florida sunshine!
Excellent well equipped home!! We loved it so much, we only left the house for dinner out one evening. The house is on a culdesac, so no traffic. The lot is full of various fruit trees. Fishing right under the dock for mangrove snapper was great. The marina activity was fun to watch every evening from the pool. The marina was convenient for bait and boat rental. They are building a huge concrete indoor boat storage building which isn't a great view, but extremely helpful to find your way home from fishing. We have had bad experience in the past with Florida homes having bad sulfur water, but this home has GREAT water straight from the tap! The best equipped and clean home we have ever stayed in.
We truely enjoyed a very needed relaxing week in your home. Thank you for sharing it with us.
We weren't sure what we would think of having activity across the canal, but we LOVED it! Watching the boats come in and out, the Pelicans hanging out, fish jumping, and the pirate ship dock after every excursion was so much fun! We spent every early evening sitting by the beautiful pool, taking it all in. It was never noisy across the way, and most of the activity ended well before bed time. The home is in a very nice neighborhood and is ideally located so that my daughter and I could walk or bike to a nice shopping area and lots of restaurants (and Starbucks!) while the guys took the car to go golfing. Renting a boat, jet skis, or bikes is incredibly easy there. A church is within a short walking distance, making it to easy to attend Easter service. The house is in great shape and suits a family of up to six really comfortably. Our 6'4 son loved having his own king-size bed! If we get back to Marco again, we are definitely staying here!
This house is exactly as listed, very clean with everything you need. The owners are very personable and easy to communicate with. Our group had 3 couples and most of the time we spent at the house was on the lanai. It was fun watching all the activity at the marina. Renting a pontoon made it easy to get out on the water and sight see. The dinner cruise boat was only a stone's throw away, and a fun evening. This is a great part of town - we especially enjoyed our dinner at Old Marco Pub. We are going back again next year!
Great location across from marina. You can walk to marina or boat over from the dock. The screened patio with pool is a great place for the whole family gather
Highly recommended! We've been coming here on and off (mostly on) for over 20 years. Three major pluses - clean as a whistle, outstanding location, very good value $.
Just a few things to be aware of:
Not everyting is super up-to-date, e.g. pool furniture - It's fine and will work but if you need Marriott level all the way you may consider something else.
Secondly, be aware that you are directly accross from a busy marina that is active from about sunrise until a little after sunset. Thereafter, very quiet. We personally enjoyed the activity. If one of us wanted to sleep in we just cycled them to a front room.
Finally, no ESPN or premium channels. No big deal for us. We don't go on vacation to watch TV and we went out to watch NCAA Tourney games. But I know this would be pretty traumatic for some of our friends.
Overall - Outstanding. Especially if you like the Old Marco area - which is where we seem to be gravitating to. Many places w/i walking distance. you could almost do this place without a car.
The listing is accurate, great location, loved watching the action in the harbor while relaxing around the pool. House was very clean, and has all the amenities, along with beach towels, chairs and fishing poles. We traveled down with four kids, 12-17 and everyone was happy. The owners were very accomadating and great communication. Would highly reccomend staying at this house and if we get the chance would defiantely go back. Everything on the island is close, so it is easy to get around.
Fish right off the dock, using tackle stored in the garage and live bait from the marina across the waterway.
