Grill dinner on the lanai or dine out at Marco Islands' many fabulous restaurants.

The southern exposure heated pool ensures all day fun in the sun. A solar pool cover keeps the heated pool toasty warm during the cooler months.

Plenty of seating with many choices for relaxing by the pool while watching the boats go by and the manatee and dolphin swim in the canal. Also, enjoy floating in the pool and sunning yourself on the 3 pool mats provided for your enjoyment.

Dolphin and Manatee frequent the canal and many species of fish can be caught off the new dock. Snook lights and cleaning station are a highlight.

Marco Island is six miles long and four miles wide, with over 50 locally owned and operated restaurants. There is a movie theater, miniature golfing, shopping and beautiful white sand beaches only minutes away. Day trips to the everglades are really fun as is a boat trip on the Key West Express right from the Marco Marina. Sunset dinner cruises are also enjoyable.

About Terri

We live in the greater Detroit metropolitan area but our hearts set with the sun each night on Marco Island. We know you will love Marco Island as much as we do.

Terri purchased this house in 2013

Why Terri chose Florida South Gulf Coast

We fell in love with Marco Island when we visited back in 2012. The beaches are gorgeous and we love walking the beach and watching sunsets. We enjoy sitting on the lanai watching the sunrise in the morning while enjoying our coffee. There is plenty of room on the spacious lanai to relax at the private pool while enjoying the sunshine during the day. Watching the boats go by and seeing dolphin and manatee in the canal are a few of the many reasons we chose this house. The house is spacious and there is plenty of room for us to relax and enjoy when we visit. The canal is extra wide and from the lanai and house we enjoy long waterway views of the canal. The extra wide canal makes it very easy to park a boat at the dock,

What makes this house unique

We are boaters and within 10 minutes we can be on the Marco River and the Gulf of Mexico. We love the fact that finding the house by boat is easy and gulf access is quick. We also enjoy the privacy on the lanai offered by the beautiful palms and the long waterway views.

Peaceful and plenty of space. All you need!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely house made our holiday complete. Here's all that's needed for adults, as well as children. A house with plenty of space and a quiet atmosphere. A house that is well decorated and not least with a nice outdoor area in the form of a beautiful pool framed in a lanai with the most beautiful view. Our 3 children and we spent many good hours in the pool and with board games at the tables outside, until late evening hours.

Thank you Terri and Mark to lend your house to 5 VERY happy and satisfied Danes.

We really hope to get back some day. :-)

Back Again!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful home in 2014 and when we came back to Marco this year, we didn't even have to think about where we would stay. We love this home...spotless, beautiful, convenient location, on a quiet street and just "comfortable". We spend our days "floating" in the sparkling pool and our evenings relaxing on the lanai. We love watching the boats and dolphins swim by. Just so relaxing!! Teri and Mark are wonderful owners and are always just a phone call away if you need anything. We will be back- hopefully next year🐬?🌴?🏖?

Wonderful home on a great island!

  • 5 of 5

The home is very centrally located and most attractions are accessible by the provided bicycles. Very nice neighborhood and the waterway with dock is accessible to Marco bay areas. Due to the perfect weather, we had no reason to turn on the AC as the three sliding doorways enabled us to have a breeze from the lanai/pool area off the channel. The house is nicely furnished with plenty of living space. We went with two teen boys and they each had a room to themselves. Being able to cook most of our meals at the home was great; just be sure to hit the Winn Dixie instead of Publix (expensive). We rented a boat to spend a day on the water and I had no problem picking everyone up from the house.

My wife was able to lay out by the pool on a daily basis and we had meals on the lanai. Even got to meet the across the channel neighbor who is an avid fisherman! Definitely glad we made the decision to rent this location!

Lovely vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This house was immaculate upon our arrival, and well stocked with everything we needed for beach and pool, and the gas grill worked well for dinners. It was so relaxing sitting out by the pool watching boats go by and reading a book. We had never rented a house before and I am SO glad we did; all three of our kids ended up sick so while they slept off their cold, we were able to sit and read in the sun. It was such a relief not to be trapped in a hotel room. It's a lovely setting. We did not get to explore Marco since our kids were sick, but our "staycation" in this home was lovely. Thank you for having us!

Owner's Response: Thank you for noticing how clean and well stocked the house is! We recently purchased the new Weber grill and are glad you were able to enjoy it for your dinners. Isn’t renting a home wonderful?! I’m sorry to hear your children were ill while vacationing yet we are happy you were still able to enjoy the large lanai relaxing and reading. You will need to come back to Marco so you can explore our beautiful island – and we hope you stay with us again.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for my family which consisted of my husband and I, two adult children and two teens. They enjoyed fishing off the dock and we brought kayaks and our boat. Definitely would recommend this home.
