About the property

3BR/2.5Bth - Sleeps 6

This recently built 3BR, 2.5Bth home was custom designed with vacation living in mind. It is located in an ideal vibrant neighborhood for vacationers, just steps from the white sands of the crescent beach of Marco Island accessed by a new public beach access path located on the west side of Collier Blvd where it intersects with Winterberry Dr, on the property line of the Marriott Crystal Shores Resort and the Hilton Resort. It is just about a 3 minute easy walk, only about 0.18 miles, about 300 yards, from the house to the new beach access path entrance.

This location also offers a wide choice of fantastic restaurants, a four screen dine-in movie theater, ice cream parlor, shops, the Marco Island Art League, outdoor adventure rentals, miniature golf, as well as the many other entertainment options that Marco Island has to offer.

The heart of the home is an open great room with a 60in flatscreen TV, granite and stainless steel kitchen opening onto the covered lanai and screened-in heated pool. The interior design lends an atmosphere of casual beach side elegance, achieved by using colors inspired from the sea and beach, using a mix of new and vintage pieces, and adding a collection of one-of-a-kind artwork from local celebrated artists that only adds to the relaxed tropical vibe.

The master bedroom has a king sized bed, a flat screen TV, and an en suite bathroom with dual sinks, a walk in shower, and a soaker tub. There are two guest bedrooms: one with a queen sized bed, and the other with a set of twins. Both bedrooms have flat screen TVs, and share a bathroom with a standup shower. Cable and Wi-Fi available. BluRay DVD players are in the Living Room and the twin bedroom.

Along with ample pool towels, we supply beach equipment such as a cooler, chairs, umbrella and beach cart. Our screened in pool has a 3 burner Weber Genesis grill for outdoor cooking.

While we aren't able to accept instant online reservations through this site, one of the best features of our rental home is that it is managed by the best rental team on Marco Island. They guide the renter throughout the entire process, from assisting with the reservation to checking out, ensuring that everything goes smoothly, and in the event that a problem does arise, they are nearby to rectify any possible glitch.


Please note that our house is rented out on a weekly basis, with arrivals and departures on Saturdays

About Robert Hazzard

The owners have been visiting Marco Island since 1994 and enjoying their walks on the beach every morning. After years of planning, from their New England home base, they have finally realized their dream of building a home within a very short walking distance to the beach and are happy to share their dream vacation home with others.

Robert Hazzard purchased this house in 2013

Why Robert Hazzard chose Marco Island

After searching homes that were available on the island, the owners decided to build a custom home with a wide open floor plan that feels more like a luxury hotel suite than a traditional home. There is plenty of room for the whole family to be together whether you are in the kitchen, dining room, family room or covered lanai. And with the L shaped floorplan, the design also easily allows for privacy for the master suite from the other bedrooms.

What makes this house unique

The proximity to Marco Walk Shopping Center allows you to park the car and forget about it. You have a wide choice of restaurants and activities that are literally just steps away from the Villa. While the home is near to the shopping center, there is extensive lush tropical landscaping to help buffer views and provide privacy, while waterfalls in the pool, the thick high impact hurricane windows and solid cement block construction assist in keeping exterior noise to a minimum.

We stayed in this lovely house with our family and had an amazing trip! It was close to restaurants, shops, and the beach! We swam every single day in the beautiful heated pool for hours a day. Highly recommend this place for a wonderful vacation! Thanks so much!

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home with our three children for a week in April. The home is in a great location, within walking distance to restaurants, mini golf, and beach access. The home itself is gorgeous. The kitchen is well equipped, the master bath is fantastic, and the house is beautifully decorated. The pool is also excellent, and there is plenty of seating to relax while others swim. Rarely do you find a rental that looks better than the photos, but this one did! We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation here and would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at this house two weeks. The house was impeccable. Spacious, comfortable, clean, warm, and cozy. The house looks way better than the pictures! This home, in particular the kitchen, was very well equipped with all the amenities. Wifi everywhere. The house is very, very well located in a quiet neighborhood but just a few steps away from many good restaurants and sports bar and a short five minutes walk to the beach. The owner and the rental's agency staff were friendly and responsive! We highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a great home away vacation in marco Island! Tout était parfait!!!

1st Trip 2 Marco

  • 5 of 5

Our week in Marco Island was wonderful!! The major factor was the awesome home. The home was exceptionally clean, well stocked with towels and linens and beach chairs/umbrella/cart. The layout of the home was well thought out. Pool & lanai was great, we spent so much time out there. Being able to use the garage to keep the car out of the sun was nice. The walk to the beach was not a problem. Home is located in a nice part of the island. We will be coming back!!
