About Dawn and Dave Rubin

We have been happily married for 29 years, and in April 2015 we moved from Houston, TX to another home we own on Marco Island. Dave is employed in Sales & Marketing for a major chemical company, and is an avid mountain climber, golfer and skier. Dawn is actively involved volunteering with Corridor Rescue, an animal rescue group in Houston (

Dawn and Dave Rubin purchased this house in 2011

Why Dawn and Dave Rubin chose Marco Island

We have always wanted to live on the water, so while vacationing on Marco Island from Houston, TX in 2011 we found 739 Orchid Court and quickly realized it was the perfect vacation home! We love that our home is within walking distance to the beach, movie theater and restaurants, and also had easy boat access to the ocean!

Best vacation EVER!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent the month of October in this amazing house for our anniversary. It was the best anniversary trip we have ever had. The house has everything you need. All we needed was our clothes. The house is within walking distance to restaurants, activities, beach, and anything else you need. The beach is a short walk but we hardly left the house because it was so relaxing. We spent most of our time around the pool. Dave and Dawn are amazing people to deal with and I had the opportunity to speak to dawn on a couple of occasions. She was very friendly and anxious to help in any way necessary. She told me things we could do in the area and popular places to eat and shop. We will definitely be staying here again.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Great location and a lovely big yard for our 2 dogs. House was perfect for our needs, although we spent most our time around the pool enjoying the breeze coming down the waterway. Loved paddle boarding from the dock to the Gulf, and watching the manatees and dolphins that came to visit. We have already booked for another 5 weeks next year; what more is there to say!

Great Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over the 2016 Spring Break with our two children, 12 & 14. It is our 4th year in Marco and 10th in SW Florida. We love Marco and have found ourselves finding homes closer and closer to the South Beach entrance. I think we've found the best home yet. Dawn and Dave's home is in a great location, only 0.9 miles to the beach. The perfect walk with their large wagon and other amenities to cart down the road and through the sand. They have necessary chairs, towels, umbrellas and sand toys to make it a turnkey vacation.

The proximity to mini-golf, restaurants and Mackle Park provide alternatives to beach days along with the nice pool and fishing in the canal in the back of the house. Access to grocery and liquor stores is also nice as is the short drive to Stans in Goodland.

The home was clean, well-kept and full of everything you need to cook and entertain. It is truly a home and not just a rental house. Dawn was very responsive to requests and followed up promptly with the information we needed.

The Rubin's truly want to make this a great experience for you and they did just that for us. Thanks to you both for access to your home - we plan to rent with you again! We highly recommend to anyone looking for a home close to Marco beaches!

Awesome rental, makes for a wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family loved our week at this rental! The home is beautiful and well maintained. Our extended family all came over for dinner a few nights and had cocktails by the pool - it's a great place for entertaining. My favorite part is the close proximity to the beach, it's about a five minute walk over. We would get up early every morning and take a walk to collect seashells. This rental made for a wonderful vacation, and we will definitely make this house part of

our annual tradition!

Amazing Rental

  • 5 of 5

This is my third year down to Marco Island, and every year, I go with one of the houses owned by Dawn and Dave. This was my first time in this property, and it was the best year yet. The amenities are spectacular; the house had everything my own home has (I even needed scissors once in the trip, and they had them!). The property is amazingly well maintained, and it is within walking distance of the beach, some bars, good restaurants, a movie theater, and even a miniature golf course. Probably the coolest part about this place is the natural beauty. I made delicious guacamole from the avocado tree they have in the back yard, and I got to see dolphins, sting rays, and even a matinee (!!!) while sipping wine next to the back yard pool. No matter who you are and what you are looking for in a vacation, this property will enable you to fully enjoy the pleasures of Marco Island.

Guests who have recently stayed in our home have said:

'This is my third year to vacation in Marco Island, and my second time to rent a home from Dawn and Dave. The house has everything you could possibly need...and MORE. Seriously, just pack your clothes and enjoy. The pictures do not lie. The layout of the house works perfectly...master on one side and game room and guest rooms on the other. The property is beyond clean inside and out. The pool is very refreshing and gets PLENTY of sunlight throughout the day. Everything is within walking distance...amazing restaurants, mini golf, salons, shopping, and the beach. You must catch the sunset every night!'

'The house is in a very convenient location for everything...access to the Gulf, access to golf, dining and shopping. The swimming pool overlooks a beautiful backyard and a channel. The house is very clean and well organized. The kitchen has nice appliances and an assortment of quality pots and pans. All light fixtures are clearly labeled which is very helpful. The garage is spotless and everything is stored neatly. Fishing rods, tackle, bikes, beach chairs, a little wagon and more are all there and ready to use. All in all a great destination. We already have multiple weeks booked in the future. A big 'thank you' to Dawn and Dave for sharing their beautiful home!'

'A wonderful home from home! The owners have thought of everything to make your holiday as relaxing and peaceful as possible. We had a great time at this well equipped house. It is exceptionally clean and very spacious. The pictures do not do it justice! We have visited Marco many times and rented several homes and this is the best so far. You are within walking distance of many good restaurants and shops. The beach is also an easy walk and all the gear you need is provided. My husband loved the pool table and I could watch him play while relaxing by the pool. Thanks for sharing your home with us, if only for a brief three weeks.'
