Elizabeth and I met and live in Alaska and have been visiting Marco for 20 years. We have two wonderful sons Brad and Ian and three beautiful grandchildren, Gus, Henry and Lucy. For the past 20 years during the cold Alaskan winters we have vacationed on Marco, and for many years dreamed of having our own little slice of Paradise here. Our dream has finally come true! In Alaska we enjoy fishing, boating, and hiking in - the 'Last Frontier'. We are surrounded by spectacular mountains, glaciers, rivers, ocean and wildlife. We feel incredibly blessed by all that we share in life, particularly each other and our family. We sincerely hope you come to 'Paradise Found' on Marco to share our home and come back often. Please read all our reviews, our guest tell a wonderful story about our Paradise Found.
Tom & Elizabeth Rensch purchased this house in 2010
'Paradise Found' is all about Location, location, location. An affordable vacation rental home with all the charm and convenience you could hope for. Our home is an easy six minute walk to South Beach entrance, one of the most spectacular, white sand beaches in all of Florida, with an amazingly energetic, life-renewing sunset - every night! Watch for the 'Green flash'! Mom and Dad have a home on Marco Island and we just knew we wanted to own on Marco too! This is not for profit rental so our rental rates are the best on the island.
'Pardise Found' is literally CLOSE to EVERYTHING you could ever hope for during your stay. Use our 2 new comfort Bikes or walk to unique shops and fabulous restaurants with wonderful seafood or steak dinners.... and fresh, fresh, fresh fruits and salad selections. Share a fresh tropical drink and sunset with someone you love, ease back into the 'local' Marco scene, forget about life for a while...and just enjoy! Yes our blender is standing by! Yes the pool is heated and no we do not charge you extra to heat the pool! This home is truly the most affordable 3 bedroom home on Marco. We love love love our home and hope it shows.
We really liked staying a Paradise Found. It was close to the beach and we had everything we needed. Very clean, very quiet, and very convenient. We really enjoyed the pool and the sunsets. Our favorite place to eat was Pelican Bend and we met the owners who were from Tennessee. Thank you for offering us this place to stay, and we plan to enjoy it again.
The house is very clean, nicely decorated, very close to the beach. Thank you Tom & Elizabeth !!!
I have stayed in hotels before, and can honestly say that this was BY FAR the most relaxed I have been on a vacation in Marco-- it's all thanks to this beautiful home! During the days we usually walked to the public beach. It really felt like we were at a home away from home-- we had fresh beach towels and a beach cart to use, and 2 bikes for guests to use!
Anything you need in Marco is a short drive or bike-ride away. We rented paddleboards. We also took a dolphin tour! T&E have all the information you could need about where to rent things right on the table by the garage--so handy! Honestly, you do not need tours when you have the perfect public beach within blocks. We collected shells and sand dollars out by the pier, we saw Dolphins really close to the beach! And the water is perfect for swimming.
When my mom first walked onto the Lanai, she said "This looks like Costa Rica!" She was right. The back porch is screened in, but right on the other side there are gorgeous palm trees and tropical birds. The pool is secluded, and there is even an outdoor shower with privacy. Our afternoons were spent reading or lounging by/in the water-- I am telling you. The water was perfect and the atmosphere is surreal.
While the parents were on the other side of the house in the "master" bedroom, my husband and I were not complaining! We had our own private room (comfy queen with soft sheets), bathroom, and living room with a separate TV. When we didn't stay in and cook in the fully-supplied kitchen or grill, we went to listen to live music at water-side restaurants like Snook Inn and Stans. There is also a wonderful place for a night cap (The Sunset Grille) that is just a few blocks away. We literally did watch the sunset from there-- it's right on the public beach--so I'd recommend stopping there for a snack too.
One night, we took beach chairs from the garage, made some drinks, and walked down to the beach. We just sat with our toes in the ocean and (I KID YOU NOT) within 15 minutes there was a bright fiery sunset with the silhouettes of 4 dolphins, a sailboat, pelicans, and paddleboarders. What more could you ask for? It was the most relaxing moment. I wish our week in Marco could last all summer!
This was my first trip to Marco Island and being able to stay in this wonderful house added so much to the experience! This lovely home is wonderfully located in a nice neighborhood that is a short walk to South Beach, restaurants and shops. Importantly, the house was very clean. The floor plan allowed for privacy (bedrooms at opposite sides of the house and two TV areas) and the kitchen was well equipped. Additionally, there was a good supply of beach/pool items and bicycles. We enjoyed the lovely pool and lanai everyday. Beyond a great home in a great location, Tom and Elizabeth were very gracious hosts. They were wonderful to work with and were very accessible. They went above and beyond by offering many good suggestions on places to visit, favorite restaurants, and guided us to websites that would help us get acquainted with the island. They were genuinely concerned that everything was as it should be so that we could enjoy this wonderful place. I really felt that I was a guest in their home and not just another transaction. I hated to leave and was so sorry that the house was already booked during my vacation dates next year. Highly recommended!
This is a great little house. I loved opening the three sliding glass doors which made the lanai and pool so accessible. It just seemed to bring the outdoors into the house. This is a well equipped home with lots of pool / beach toys and accessories and bicycles. We did a little food prep / cooking and found the kitchen well equipped also. The pool area was nice with a table and several chairs for meals on the lanai, which has a shaded area to afford some relief from the sun. Really the best part of this home is the owners. They were so easy to work with and very accessible to answer questions. Making the reservation and payment and our arrival and departure all went very smoothly. The only reason we are not going back next year is that Paradise Found was almost completely booked for 2017 before we even completed our stay this year! I am sad not to be going back to this house. I enjoyed it so much. Thank you Tom and Elizabeth for a wonderful first experience on Marco Island.
Dear Tom and Elizabeth,
Just wanted to let you know that we're back from a wonderful vacation in your home (our second visit). We thought your house was perfect the first time we visited, but it's obvious that you continually make improvements that make for a great vacation. From early morning bike rides through the lovely island of Marco, to afternoons spent soaking in the beautiful pool, to early evening walks to the beach to gather seashells and view the gorgeous sunsets, our stay couldn't have been more perfect! The house is spotlessly clean and well-equipped. The set-up of the home is perfect for two couples to share (lots of privacy for each couple). Thank you for sharing your "paradise" with us and we hope to return again soon! Marc and Jo-Ann
