Please also look at my other home on Marco Island Home Away # 4178886 in the event that this home is booked for your requested week.
It's the perfect place to lounge and enjoy your morning coffee or evening dinner. The spacious living room has a large flat screen TV and DVR and the large master suite is also equipped with a flat-screen TV. There are 2 additional Flatscreen TV's in the house (4 in total). Enjoy the Heated pool and SPA while taking in the wide water views and expansive green space across the canal. The house is equipped with a 10,000lb boat lift and dock, should you choose to bring your boat or rent one for your stay. You can enjoy fishing right off the dock in the back of the house. The beach entrance at Tigertail beach a short walk away.
Since most of our guests come to Florida for vacation to relax and enjoy the sun, they would like to enjoy laying in the sun during the day and afternoon by the pool. On this major point not all homes are the same. If you want to enjoy late morning through evening sun, the pool has to be facing south or west. If the pool is facing East or North, the pool will be in the shade starting around noon especially in the winter with the sun lower in the sky. (The sun will be shining on the front of the house in the afternoon creating a shadow that will cover the pool, since the pool is in the back yard of the house). This is probably not how you'd like to spend your vacation. It's like being at the beach on a cloudy day, everyday. Make sure you ask which way the pool faces when you look at homes to rent.
Another question is - What is your view while you are laying in the sun, having a meal in the outdoor dining area or just enjoying a drink? Many homes are on narrow canals facing unsightly seawalls and another neighbor's dock and backyard. At our home you look at expansive greenspace directly across from the home and wide water views to the south as you look out. The view is relaxing and enjoyable. Take a moment to look at where the home is and what your view will be as you are enjoying the outdoor pool, patio and outdoor dining area.
There are also 4 new bicycles (Nov 2012) available for your use at the house. Please inquire about the availability and use of the boatlift. You must contact the owner prior to booking the home online. Thank you.
The home is comfortably furnished with numerous seating areas and spacious common area inside the home. Two seating areas with TV indoors - one with large denim sofabed and loveseat. The main living room with a large HD Samsung flatscreen TV. There is also seating in the lanai with large cushioned chairs overlooking the pool and the wide water views.
You can enjoy the sun all day at this home since the pool is facing the SouthWest direction. It gets great sun all day. If you want to stay out of the sun, you can relax outside in the covered lanai. In addition the relaxing wide water views really enhance your vacation experience while you are sitting poolside.
My family of 4 spent a wonderful two weeks at this property. The kitchen is well equipped (I cooked most days) and there are even a couple of good non-stick pots that aren't all scratched up, which is unusual for a rental property. The beds are comfortable and the place is remarkably clean. The wi-fi is fast and often had 4 people streaming programs at once without issue. The pool is a good size and the hot tub warms up quickly. For us, it would have been very helpful if there were detailed instructions on how to use the TVs as we're not used to satellite systems - once we got them working, it was nice to be able to watch a Netflix movie together in the evening. The element in the BBQ is corroding and causes large flames in certain places making it a little hard to use - either the element or BBQ should be replaced. Local tips such as the better restaurants for certain foods, for ice cream, etc. would also be helpful although Tripadvisor did a decent job of helping us to find what we needed. We found the owner to be highly responsive the couple of times that we had questions. If you're looking for comfortable and very livable accommodations that are well equipped and near to the beach, this place is great! Would definitely recommend.
Every great comment and review about Marco Island and Peter's home is 100% true. I've rented vacation homes in both Florida and in my home state of Michigan and have never seen a place so furnished. Litterally everything you need is there. Just bring clothes, food, booze and paper products. Everything else is there and in good condition. The pool/hot tub was our favorite. Especially at night with the water lights on and the city in the background, what a beautiful view. Peter is super easy going and responds quickly. We can't wait to go back!
We had a very pleasant stay. The pool was great as was the location. The pictures don't do t justice. The home very well kept and spacious enough for 10.
From the moment we walked through the door we had a feeling of peace, beauty and comfort. This house was truly amazing and spotless clean. The house is more beautiful in person than in the pictures and is situated perfectly on the island.
I've rented many properties on VRBO and I can say that this was my best experience. This house was fully stocked with plenty of towels in all the beautiful bathrooms and plenty for the pool/beach. The beds were very comfortable and the view was spectacular. My daughter especially liked the bikes that were available for use and the many beach chairs.
A true gem in the heart of Marco Island.
Marco Island - This is as far South as you can get on Florida's Gulf side. Less than 10 minute walk to Marco Island's Tigertail Beach area which also connects to Marco Island's main beach. View the Beautiful Sunsets right on the beach. Take a boat tour of the everglades, rent a boat and dock right at the house. Tour the 1,000 islands right around Marco Island. Watch the Osprey pull fish out of the water right from the water behind the house while sitting on the pool deck. Watch Dolphins swim in and out with the tide. The house is a short walk to several popular restaurants, Ne Ne's Kitchen and Joeys Pizza. Also, a little further but within a mile is the Esplanade with restauratns and a Starbucks and a nearby McDonalds and Winn Dixie Supermarket.
