About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 bathroom luxury waterfront home with cleaning included in rent!

Welcome to 1896 Calusa Court, a stunning four-bedroom, three bathroom home located at the end of a quiet and private cul-de-sac, just minutes from the beach. A recent remodel has transformed this waterfront home into an ultra-luxurious beach themed retreat. No expense was spared in designing this gorgeous home, and everything from the tile floors to the high vaulted ceilings is designed with comfort, style, and convenience in mind. The exceptionally large 40ft x 19ft pool with integrated spa, waterfalls, air blower and colorful led lighting is one of the many upscale features.

The spacious living room is the first thing you’ll notice when you walk in, and will quickly become one of the family’s favorite spots to hang out in. With two leather sofas, and large sliding windows to let natural light flow through, it is easy to chill in front of a giant 65” flat screen TV. This open area is an inviting and welcoming site when you walk through the front door. This room is complete with upscale accessories like dark wood coffee and side tables, elegant rugs and a soft neutral color palate. In an area within this room, there is a home office, comprising an Apple computer and a printer that can be accessed by wi-fi from anywhere in the house.

The open floor plan of this sprawling beach home allows one room to transition easily into the next. The living room flows right into the family room/ gourmet kitchen, which is easily one of the most beautiful rooms in the entire home and is another favorite spot for families to hang out in . There is another 65” TV here, allowing children to have there own TV, separate from their parents’ one.

An overextended island unit serves as a casual snack bar with four bar stools and elegant light fixtures, a giant stainless steel refrigerator, with ice maker, is perfect for holding all of your groceries, and the other state of the art appliances make it easy to make meals for your entire family. The custom cabinets, extensive counter tops, whisper quiet Miele dishwasher and large modern sink add both style and convenience to this chef-inspired kitchen.

The kitchen melts into a formal dining room, set against large windows for a beautiful view during a meal. A wet bar with drinks chiller, additional sink,and extra cabinet space and a dry bar, give this room its own complete feel, and a large dining room table with eight chairs provides plenty of room for everyone to gather for good food and great conversation. A set of sliding glass doors lead from the dining room out to the gorgeous shaded lanai and pool area.

Outside, the recently upgraded lanai is screened in and features a gas grill and outdoor dining area. Switch up lunchtime one afternoon and enjoy a BBQ by the pool! Upscale patio loungers provide a comfortable space for guests to relax in the shade or soak up the Florida sun around the pool.The sparkling pool and integrated spa will provide fun and relaxation for the entire family. The view from the pool (or the comfortable loungers, or the spa,or the dining area, or the balcony!) can’t be beat, and you’ll love to sit outside and watch the seabirds, or maybe even a dolphin or manatee! Large shrubs and a privacy wall separate the pool area from the neighbors, and the only thing behind the pool is a private boat deck and the canal. Early risers can wake up, brew a cup of coffee in the kitchen, and sit out on the lanai or private boat dock and look for marine life, or watch the world go by. An upstairs balcony that comes off of a second story bedroom provides a whole other view of the pool and canal. Beside the dock, there is an underwater discharge light, which is clearly visible after dark. It illuminates the water with a green glow which attracts all manner of sea creatures, including manatees, triple tails, groupers and cat-fish.

There are three bedrooms on the first floor of this stunning home, and a private master suite on the second floor. The upstairs master suite has a high end King size bed, elegant dark wood furnishings, a wall mounted flat screen TV, vaulted ceilings, stylish light fixtures and the private balcony overlooking the pool. The master bathroom looks like it has been modeled after a world-class spa, complete with a walk-in shower with glass and marble accents, a separated tub, and a large vanity area with duel sinks. This spacious bathroom provides plenty of room for two people to get ready for a busy day, or unwind from one. With plush towels, soft lighting and stylish accents and a large master closet this modern bathroom takes the master suite up a notch.

Downstairs, the second bedroom has a Queen size bed and windows that overlook the water. A huge flat screen TV, plenty of dresser space and soft, subtle beach themed décor make this private bedroom a quiet and peaceful sanctuary set apart from the common areas. This room has its own private bathroom, which features a glass-enclosed shower, toilet, and two sinks. The third bedroom also has a Queen size bed and has sliding door access out to the pool. The white, green and blue color scheme mirrors the natural colors of the beach, and a flat screen TV and 2 modern armchairs create a comfortable place to unwind. An adjacent bathroom to this third bedroom has a glass shower and access out to the pool. The fourth bedroom has two twin size beds and a large closet to organize all of your belongings. With a colorful, modern ceiling fan, tile floors and a neutral color scheme, this spacious bedroom is comfortable and functional at the same time.

The location of this breathtaking home on Marco Island puts guests minutes from the beach, as well as local restaurants, shopping venues, and public parks. Marco Island is only 4 miles x 6 miles, and spending your vacation here adds an intimate, private and tropical vibe to your beach vacation. There are modern conveniences like grocery stores and banks just minutes away, but when you’re enjoying your home, you feel like you’ve sailed away to your own private island.

This home features many other bonus features to ensure your stay is as comfortable and convenient as possible. Six sleek flat screen TVs, 2 blueray/DVD players for use with the 65” TV’s and a DVD player in each of the bedrooms.

There is garage parking, four bikes to ride around the island, fishing poles, a washer and dryer to help stay on top of laundry, Netflix is available on the 2 x 65”TVs allowing you to watch your favorite shows, there is also a full 260+ channel Comcast DVR system on each of these 2 TV’s, including ‘On Demand’ and a simpler version of Comcast on each of the bedroom TV’s. The Wi-Fi that makes interacting with friends and family back home a breeze, are just a few of the five-star amenities this house offers that elevate it to true luxury status.This amazing vacation rental is everything the modern family needs and wants for their long awaited Marco Island vacation.

My family and I have been renting vacation homes for the past 6 years, typically twice a year. This was by far the best home to date! The photos are exactly what you can look forward to. Working with David was a delight from the get go. Answered all my questions promptly and was very pleasant. All updates are top of the line. So much so that I had to ask how the dishwasher worked. The property manager showed up within a few hours to walk me through it. I wish I could remember her name because she was awesome! The house was spotless upon arrival. ( As this has been an issue in the past with a few of our rentals.) I cannot say enough about this beautiful home! We saw dolphin, an iquana even a shark right out our back yard. They have set up a light in the water off of the dock for a beautiful night time flurry of activity in the canal. Even caught a few fish! Did I mention the HUGE mango tree that blessed me with fruit on a daily basis. There were at least five on the ground everyday for my enjoyment. All this being said, we have already planned on staying here next summer.

Thank you Island Escapes for a great property and a wonderful vacation!

This house is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The first thing everyone in my group said upon entry was WOW! And we kept saying it as we walked through this beautiful house. It was even better than the pictures led us to believe. The layout, furnishings and appointments were beautifully designed. And the outside had a great view of the canal and Marco River. The pool was nice but unfortunately, it was too chilly for us to use it. We were able to use the bikes that were included for rides around Marco Island though. This was a nice additional for the rental.

Great house to rent for a week or two or three....

Beautiful luxury home

  • 5 of 5

This gorgeous home was very outstanding! We had plenty of room inside the home and outside by the pool. The waterway views were very lovely, we saw dolphin and manatee right there by the dock! We loved the grill, cooked on it almost every night. The kitchen was very well stocked. They have thought of everything from fishing poles to beach chairs. Would definitely stay there again!!

Wonderful!! Everything is terrific from the gorgeous views to the comfortable floor plan. The four bedrooms was perfect for our family. We love the master bedroom and bath on the second floor and the private balcony was great. Loved the fact that the kids have their own t.v. room. We enjoyed sitting out on the lanai in the morning looking out at the beautiful views. We are hoping to return soon.

Six flat screen TV sets, good beds, linens, towels, cooking equipment so good we had to read the directions to use. Fabulous pool, out door grill and furniture as well. They didn't miss much, we would consider this home again! Property Manager very helpful and available to lend a hand.
