House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This tip-lot home is at the end of a cul-de-sac facing Landmark Bay, one of the most sought-after wide-water views on Marco Island. The home is designed for indoor-outdoor living, with sliding glass doors from three different rooms leading to a large, screened lanai and heated pool.

A public entrance to the widest beach on the island is a 6-minute walk from our home. Tigertail Beach, outstanding for bathing, birding and shelling, is a five minute drive and South Marco Beach, also wide, is a ten minute drive. Rookery Bay bird sanctuary is a short drive up Route 951. And for golfers, there are several signature courses close by.

For those who like to fish, Landmark Bay is called Tarpon Bay because it shelters baby tarpon year-round. It is not unusual to occasionally see four and five-foot tarpon splashing about just off the patio dock.

Landmark Bay also hosts a variety of small fish (snapper, sheepshead porgies, cravalle jacks, ladyfish) and an occasional snook coming to hook. Also, dolphins cruise through the bay on a regular basis, popping to the surface in their acrobatic display. Several fishing rods are available on the lanai.

In addition, there is much bird life on the bay, including many pelicans, herons, egrets, ibis, spoonbills and, of course, seagulls. On occasion, you might spot an osprey, hawk or owl. There also are colonies of burrowing owls on Marco Island.

The single-story home has a 165-foot seawall with a 20 x 18-foot patio dock jutting into the bay. There is an attractive step-down living room for entertaining, a full, formal dining room, and family room with parquet wood floors throughout (except for the bedrooms, which are carpeted).

For entertainment, there is a 46-inch Sony Bravia HDTV and a Sony Blu-ray player. There also is a Comcast DVR that allows archiving of current Comcast TV programs and movies for later viewing. Secure high-speed Internet service is provided throughout the property

Most of your time probably will be spent outdoors on the screened lanai, which is furnished with a glass-top dining table and chairs and a breakfast bar, which can be served directly from the kitchen. On the lanai is a wicker set with a love seat, lounge and chair, a good place to read a book and/or watch the children while they are in the pool.

For those who love the sun, the patio dock will be the draw while at home. There are several chaise lounges on the lanai that can be moved easily to the dock. And fishing from the dock, ahhhh!

                                                              Great winter break

                                                              The house was clean, perfectly located, and with all the amenities of home. We enjoyed the screened-in porch, the BBQ, walks on the nearby beach, and great seafood at the nearby restaurants. Our first trip to Marco Island was tremendous.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              So glad you had a wonderful Marco experience! Marco is a wonderful vacation destination and a great place to relax. We are happy you found our home a comfortable place for your vacation.

                                                              The perfect family getaway!

                                                              vanessa k.

                                                              We just returned from 17 days on Plum Ct. The home has everything you could want for a great vacation - from a well stocked kitchen to comfortable beds to beach gear and board games! Much of the beach gear was brand new, including a cart so there’s nothing to carry!

                                                              This was our 3rd trip to Marco Island for the winter break, and despite not being on the beach (like our previous condos were), the private pool, dock and resident dolphins make this our hands-down favorite!! The kids have voted for us to come back here next year.

                                                              The pool is large enough (and deep enough) for both kids and adults to enjoy! We were in it almost every morning and evening (with days at the nearby beach, park or library (on some cold days) or adventures up in Naples).

                                                              The location is unbeatable!!

                                                              There is even a burrowing owl two houses down.

                                                              Whether you love nature or the multitude of activities (in the water or at the bar) in the area, or both, look no further.

                                                              And Chris was a great host. We ran into some technical issues (a buried cable line had been severed by a neighbor) and he worked tirelessly (you know how cable companies can be) to get it fixed (required multiple service calls) with as little interruption and interference to our vacation experience.

                                                              We won’t hesitate to stay here again!

                                                              Truly a great family getaway.

                                                              Hi Vanessa,

                                                              We loved having you as a guest at our special house. We would love to have you and your family back in the future. I'm glad that you got to see the resident dolphins! They are really delightful to see and sometimes they even do some tricks!

                                                              Again, I want to thank you for all of your patience and understanding with the cable issues. I'm happy that everything was resolved in the end.



                                                              Great as always!

                                                              Rebecca O.

                                                              This is a great rental home in marco island! Walking distance to the beach with nice water view and fishing in the back yard. Owner is excellent and has great communication throughout rental and stay. We are repeat renters and love staying at this house and renting from these owners.

                                                              One of the best locations on the island 🌴

                                                              Deanna L.

                                                              We have rent this home for the last six years. It is the one week of the year that is totally stress free, waking up to the dolphins swimming by and enjoying the pool with the bay view is absolute bliss. I wish we could stay longer❤️🐬🎣☀️🌴🏖

                                                              Perfect family vacation

                                                              This was our 3rd trip to Marco Island and we loved staying at this wonderful house. It is only A 5 minute walk to the beach. And it is a great beach with calm clear water and lots of pretty sea shells.

                                                              My family enjoyed fishing off the dock everyday in the back of the house. My 2 kids boy 15 and girl 12 would swim in the pool every evening and actually get along.

                                                              I loved being able to use the full kitchen to prepare meals. We went on a fishing charter and I had everything needed to cook a great dinner.

                                                              It is also an easy drive into the Everglades to view all the nature and wildlife. We went one day and got to see gators, snakes, turtles, otters and all kinds of birds.

                                                              My family is already looking forward to next year when we can come back for our 4th trip.

                                                              Booking and getting all the needed information was very easy. I would recommend this house for a vacation to all my friends and family.

                                                              Great house is great location!

                                                              Rebecca O.

                                                              Love staying at Marco island and this house. Perfect location. Within walking distance to the beach and waterway in your backyard. Dolphins swim by and tarpon jumping. Great pool all to your self! Owners are nice to work with and excellent communication!
