This beautiful vacation home on magical Marco Island is located on a sun drenched canal with southern exposure for all-day sun, only two blocks from direct access to the BEACH!

Tastefully decorated in casual island decor, this lovely family-friendly house has three bedrooms (Master has a queen bed, second bedroom has twins, and the third bedroom has a queen), 2 baths, a gourmet kitchen with connecting family room, as well as a huge living and dining room. You can enjoy the water view from the lovely screened-in Lanai while swimming in the heated pool. The lanai area features rattan furniture and wet bar with Jenn-Aire cook top for casual outdoor dining. The house also has high speed internet access!

The house is only a short ten minute walk to the Marriott Hotel where you can enjoy the beautiful Gulf Coast sunsets and beaches! Your family will love this house! Plenty of room to spread out, relax, swim, fish, watch TV, and enjoy yourself... Truly Your-Home-Away-from-Home!

About Susan Flora

We bought this house in 2000 because we loved its spacious layout, southern exposure and lagoon-front. We have spent many great weeks here with our families in every month of the year - and enjoy them all. As an added bonus, the town installed a beach walkway 2 blocks a way - so we are literally the closest house to the beach on a canal - it's great!

Why Susan Flora chose Marco Island

As noted above, on water - great for boaters, near Marriott, closest to beach, great layout - especially for two families.

What makes this house unique

Walk to beach - FREE beach access to one of the prettiest beaches on the Gulf - see map. Bring your boat or rent at many places. Fish off dock. Walk to Marriott Resort or ride to numerous restaurants and bars. Golf throughout Naples and Southwest Florida. Visit the Everglades. Or lay on a float in the pool and do nothing - great southern exposure so always sun!

Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

The house is spacious, very clean and pleasant and offers everything we needed for a family of 5. The location is perfect for walking to the beach, just a short 6 - 7 minutes. The kitchen is not large, but very well equipped for the serious cook. We enjoyed hanging out at the pool, barbecuing on the patio and meeting the dolphins in the canal. The owner was wonderful to work with, quick to reply, the onsite house manager was prompt, helpful and addressed minor issues immediately - we will be back for sure. Thank you for 12 wonderful days, a perfect spot to spend Christmas and the New Year.

Excellent House

  • 5 of 5

The layout of the house is wonderful. There is a ton of space and very its well kept. The location is perfect for walking to the beach for the day or just to see sunset. We enjoyed fishing off the dock and even got to see dolphins in the canal. The owner is wonderful to work with and always answers your questions in a timely manner. This was our third trip to Marco Island and we found the absolute perfect home to rent. If you want a wonderful vacation experience, rent this house. We can't wait to come back again.

Great Location, waterfront, easy walk to beach

  • 5 of 5

Wow, this place was much more spacious that the photos lead you to believe. Had amenities not listed, like both a charcoal and gas grill. I really enjoyed cooking outside by the pool. Everybody else enjoyed the pool.The beach is really close for a waterfront property...two blocks, small city blocks at that. The place is clean and well kept. I really appreciate the use of the home, the owners were very helpful and the on-island manager is close by and was also helpful. I will be back in two years for sure

Great House

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation at this house. The house was great and very well equipped. We loved the proximity to the beach, it was perfect walking distance to see a sunset or relax on the beach. The heated pool was also great with a wonderful view of the canal. I called the house manager to ask a quick question and she called me back within two minutes and she was very helpful. The owner as well has been wonderful to work with. Thank you for letting my family make wonderful memories here!
