About The Owner

We are native Minnesotans who love to get away in the winter! We take time away from our dog, two cats, and our real estate business and sneak away as often as we can.

The Owner purchased this house in 2000

Why The Owner chose Marco Island

We fell in love with Marco Island the first time we visited. It became our goal to own a piece of this jewel for ourselves, so bought this home sight unseen!

What makes this house unique

Shall we lounge by the pool? Shall we challenge the kids to a game of water volleyball? Or should we head to the ocean for a beach walk? So many options, you need to stay longer to take advantage of them all.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for allowing us to build family memories here at your welcoming home. We used this home as our base camp for several day trips to places like Sanibel, Marsh Trail, Big Cypress Bend Boardwalk, airboat ride in Everglade City, etc. We truly want to thank you!

We were having a short 4 night trip to Marco, and this villa fit the bill. Linda was great at communicating - replying quickly to my many questions. We only used 1 bedroom (just 2 of us) and we spent most of our time outside in the pool, or sitting in the room with large glass sliders. We found the villa was well equipped with everything we needed, and it was very clean throughout. The pool heating did a great job, and it was like getting in to a lovely warm bath.

There's a selection of books and DVDs for guests to use.

Really liked the area and the canal style waterways - on our arrival there were two dolphins just quietly fishing at the pier end - lovely experience. Also, we enjoyed watching 2 resident Ospreys fish and defend their territory with their squawks - very interesting.

Plenty of places to eat close by, and the beach isn't far away - although the residents beach is closer we couldn't use that for obvious reasons. I can't say enough good things about this little villa, the fair price made it affordable for just the two of us and way better than sharing a pool in a hotel!

We liked it enough to make sure we booked it again for next year.

Although it’s one of the original houses on the island, the owners (nice people) have done a lot of updates and plan to do more. We have visited Marco for several months in each of the last 10 years and we really felt comfortable in this house. If it was available, we would book it for more than a month.

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home with our best friends and we all really enjoyed our time here immensly!

The home had everything you would need and more than we have ever had in other rentals. Although it was only a short time after the hurricane this property only had minimal roof damage and the pool screen was torn up some but in no way affected our stay. The pool was cleaned right after we arrived and was sparkling! We enjoyed walking on the beaches and then coming back to enjoy the pool in the afternoon! We also enjoyed all the utensils to cook our meals in! The owner (Linda) got back to us right away to answer any questions and was very nice and helpful. We definitely would love to come back here sometime! Many thanks to the homeowners for all the nice touches in the home. Plenty of towels and lots of beach towels and although we didn't use them they also had bikes you can ride. Thanks again! Shirley
