Welcome to Marco Island. Our beautiful single-family home is located in the amazing Estate section of Marco Island. Our home features three bedrooms, two baths along with all the amenities needed for your fabulous vacation on Marco Island. Features include brand new granite countertops, natural stone tile, cabinet lighting, new stainless appliances, new chandeliers and brand new carpeting in the master. The house features two sitting areas - one off of the living room and the second off of the master bedroom, with a pull out sofa bed for additional sleeping. Pass through the gorgeous set of double French doors and enter the beautiful screened lanai which covers a private and relaxing swimming pool with waterfall.
All this is situated on a very private oversized gated 1/2 acre lot loaded with tropical plants and fruit trees. Relax comfortably in the private pool /yard (knowing neighbors from across a canal are not peering into your lives). Plenty of room for the kids to safely run around or enjoy a game of volleyball. Work up a sweat and an appetite? Take a dip and fire up the Weber BBQ. Ample driveway parking available.
You are three minutes to the fabulous Gulf of Mexico and the beautiful white sands of Marco beaches. Activities such as shelling, snorkeling, hiking, fishing, boating, and golfing make Marco the perfect vacation destination. Plenty of wonderful restaurants and a variety of shopping is just minutes away. A short drive (20 minutes ) will take you to the spectacular downtown area of Naples where you can enjoy the popular 5th Ave and 3rd Street areas. Everything on Marco Island is convenient and allows for a truly memorable vacation experience. You will not be disappointed.
We have been coming to southwest Florida for many years and recently sold our Naples home so that we can better experience what Marco Island is all about. We bought this beautiful house and really enjoy spending time on Marco Island. If you have never travelled to Marco Island, I highly recommend a visit. I'm sure you will be pleasantly surprised, as we were. It is truly a hidden gem and what I call 'the best kept secret in Florida.' One visit and I'm sure you will agree.
Frank and Carmela purchased this house in 2014
We live in New York but love Marco Island. One visit and you will too!!
Hi Frank and Carmela,
Here is my review that you may post on VRBO:
The reviews that you are reading on this house are all correct. After staying here for 2 weeks with 5 people (2 adults, 3 kids aged 17-24) we also would give this vacation rental 5 stars! Location, location, location - the homes' location relative to beaches, grocery stores, restaurants, boat docks, movie theater, ice cream store, etc are all within the 1-3 mile range. We were fortunate in that we had relatives staying at one of the big chain hotels, so we were able to use their beach and chair/umbrella rentals for the majority of our stay however there are numerous chairs, coolers, beach towels, 2 bikes, and beach bags that owners provided. The kids had so much fun finding unbroken conch shells, sand dollars, and other treasures right off the beach in shallow water. The home itself is newer, on a private larger lot, and is in a quiet neighborhood. The amenities the owners provide are endless; from the Keurig (there's a regular coffee pot as well), pots, pans, board games to even a bandaid when we had a cut from a shell at the beach. The cable and wi-fi worked perfectly for those of us working off our laptops on the lanai. I received occasional texts from Frank informing us of local items of interest. (Those were the best, since we felt connected to the locals with "insider information"). The pool was heated at no additional charge, the seating was perfect on the lanai with tables, chairs, and loungers for big groups. We grilled out on the gas grill multiple times. All of us were in agreement when we left-we would absolutely stay here again!!
First time renting a house in the US and we are super happy we did. This house was perfect for us, a lot of space indoor and outside by the pool. We are not so much in to going out to restaurants so a Publix basically 5min away (left from the driveway, left, right, left and then on the right you have the store) we where able to make all our meals in this full featured kitchen with all the cookware you needed, also a barbecue by the poolside made the week in Florida just perfect.
Also great that there was a number of sun chairs in the garage for us to use including two umbrellas. So we spend the days by the beach with some snacks and drinks in the cooler.
This is for sure a house I will recommend to my friends if they consider going to Marco Island.
You can book this home with confidence! Frank is wonderful to work with-- Very attentive and quick to respond to any questions or texts. He also provided a lot of helpful information about the home and the area. We were very impressed by the great communication and genuine care about our vacation experience. This home is exceptionally clean, tastefully decorated, and very well stocked. We had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We enjoyed the privacy of the backyard pool and patio. Our kids loved the waterfall feature on the pool! It's a short drive or bike ride to the beach. A highlight of our stay was renting a boat for the day and exploring the waterways in and around Marco Island and Naples. Spectacular! Dolphins swimming right near our boat! We would highly recommend this vacation home to anyone looking for a peaceful place to unplug and relax. Thank you, Frank & Carmela!
We stayed for 3 weeks at the Marco House and had a wonderful time. When we arrived the house was clean and in an orderly manner, with many amenities & tastefully decorated. We enjoyed many hours floating in the pool & dining at the lanai while watching the Osprey nest next door. The owners were very accommodating with any of our questions & with prompt responses. We look forward to future vacations at the Marco house.
This property is located close to all amenities and parks. Nice size home with park nearby. You can walk or bike to the mall for breakfast, lunch or shopping.
Our family of 6 recently returned from our 2 week Christmas vacation in beautiful Marco Island on January 2nd, 2016. This house belonging to Frank and Carmela was even lovelier in person than in the photos. It was very clean and simply, yet tastefully and comfortably decorated. We have 4 young children, so not having many knick-knacks or clutter around the house was a huge bonus, and left much open space for the 6 of us to move around freely. The pool area was perfect for lounging, sunning, and playing. The kids loved the waterfall feature! And the lanai was in tip-top shape and was perfect for keeping critters out, and made bbq meals outdoors very pleasant. Having the fenced-in yard was also a great feature as it offered us the surety of knowing our children were "contained" - for lack of a better word. Lol. The boys, especially, enjoyed playing soccer and tossing a baseball around back there.
The island itself is simply beautiful!! You will fall in love with Marco Island, guaranteed! All amenities are very close-by as it's a small island, the people are super friendly, the weather is fantastic, and the beaches are very clean, patrolled, safe, and a ton of fun! We had many days of sandy toes and salty kisses! And the ocean water was cool, but not cold, and surprisingly calm. We have stayed on the Atlantic side of FLA for many years, and these beaches were 10x better - especially for the kids! We could stay in the waist deep water for hours boggie boarding and frolicking. Our kids are 9,7, and twins who are 4, and they all loved it!! The sunsets... I could write a review solely about these awe-inspiring marvels!! They are gorgeous! Never have we seen sunsets like this, with myriads of colours. Just magnificent. Beautiful photo ops on the beach at sunset... And the beach is a short drive from the house - maybe 5 minutes.
Our hosts, Frank and Carmela, were incredibly attentive and checked in every few days (without being intrusive) to see how we were enjoying our stay, or would randomly send a text letting us know about a Farmer's Market they would recommend, etc., which was very thoughtful of them. They answered any and all queries we had about the house, or the island, very promptly (within minutes).
Our family had the time of our lives! We loved the island so much that we found ourselves perusing real estate booklets. We will absolutely be back and wouldn't hesitate to stay in this house again for a minute! See ya next year! ;o)
Just returned from 2 wonderful weeks at this beautiful clean, modern home . This house was perfect, it had all the little touches and accessories you would not normally get- poolside equipment, playing cards, Sellotape ( very handy to wrap gifts) plenty of beach towels and accessories. The owners are excellent at communication and very helpful. Teenage children ( age 15 and 17) very happy as wifi very quick and quite happy enjoying the lovely pool and garden. Would definitely return and recommend to friends.
