Welcome to our relaxing island retreat!

Upon entering our home you will immediately breathe a sigh of relief as your stress simply begins to melt away. This luxuriously appointed home is decorated in muted tropical colors of sea foam blue and sandy beige. As you enter into the large foyer, look out onto the waters of the large pool and spa as well as the serene wide canal views. The welcoming formal living room is beautifully appointed with comfortable furniture perfect for a quiet conversation while others watch tv or play cards in the family room. The large, open kitchen is stocked with everything you need for both quiet, intimate dinners and entertaining for all of your family and friends. The formal dining room has a large, spacious table that seats eight, and there is also a table in the nook area that seats four along with barstools along the kitchen bar. The kitchen is open to a spacious and comfortable family room with a leather sectional sofa and a flat screen TV. Off of the family room, there are two guest rooms, one with a scenic sliding glass door that gives access to the patio and pool area. A full bathroom is situated between the two bedrooms for your guests comfort and convenience. The master bedroom is sure to make you feel like royalty as you relax and soak in your, garden tub. The separate shower is perfect for washing off the residue of a “stressful” day at the beach. There is a large, walk in closet to store all of your swimsuits and flip flops. The master bedroom has a comfortable king sized bed with all of the linens needed for a restful night’s sleep. As you lay in your bed fit for a king, you can look out of your sliding glass doors and see the calm waters of the canal with quick access to the gulf and the Marco River.

If you can tear yourself away from the comforting interior of this home, you will be pleased to find a large dock and a fish cleaning station with water and power. If you plan to bring your boat arrangements will have to be made ahead.

This is our family home, and we keep this home clean and ready for our own use at a moment’s notice, everything in this home is of high quality and in working order. The kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms are well stocked with everything you would need to begin your perfect vacation. There is even a small library in the living room .

This house on Marco Island is only minutes away from the resident’s beach and public beach access. It is on a quiet residential street. Marco Island is a wonderful Island with many activities throughout the year such as a local farmers market, seafood festival and movies in the park. Your vacation will be everything you have ever dreamed of at our wonderful family home.

About Susan Joiner

We are recently retired and enjoy boating, fishing and relaxing on Marco Island.

Susan Joiner purchased this house in 2010

Why Susan Joiner chose Florida South Gulf Coast

We chose Marco Island for our rental property after vacationing there for several years. We love this island for the friendly people and the laid back atmosphere.

What makes this house unique

I recently returned from a 3 day weekend performing routine maintenance on our home and as I sat in the Jacuzzi with purple lights, watching the sun go down I tried to make a mental note of benefits I would list here.

First of all I truly enjoy putting a Jimmy Buffet or an Oldies CD in the player, turning up the music and hearing it come over all the speakers in the house then opening all of the sliding glass doors so that the inside of the house blends with the outside . Then I get a book from the library and plant myself on one of the lounging chairs on the lanai. Occasionally I will put my book down and watch the birds or my attention will be drawn to something jumping out of the water.

I love the fact that you can see the water from almost every room in the house.

There are ample pool toys, and beach chairs, umbrellas and beach towels for trips to the public beaches located only minutes away.

Spotless, tastefully decorated and quiet location. Owner is very helpful and accommodating. Pool, spa and outdoor patio is very private for tranquil relaxation. Would definitely recommend this property!

Christmas 2016

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time on Marco Island and our first time booking through VRBO. Our family spent the Christmas/New Year holiday at Susan's wonderful home and enjoyed every minute! Susan was wonderful to work with and very responsive. The house had more than enough space for our party of six and was even more beautiful in person than in the pictures. It was beautifully decorated and immaculately clean and organized. We spent the majority of our time on the lanai, in the pool or on the dock. The location was convenient to shopping, beaches and restaurants yet felt peaceful and relaxing. We would not hesitate to rent this house again in the future or recommend it to others!

Owner's Response: I am thrilled that your first experience with VRBO was a good one and that you were happy with our home. I've been told by the cleaning company I use that I am picky and that people don't notice the small things I do to make my guests' stay enjoyable. Your comments about my home being clean and organized make my efforts all worthwhile. Thank you for choosing our home for your Christmas vacation!!!

Never been to Marco island before but we will be back! We really enjoyed the house and Marco island! We spent most of our time in the lanai which was so relaxing! Just hearing the water run from the hot tub to the pool and looking out into the canal was just refreshing! The house was in super condition and very beautiful! Just what the pictures showed. We will definitely be returning to this house!

Marco at its best

  • 5 of 5

We have been fortunate enough to come to Marco a number of times over the years and have rented various properties on the island.

All have had their merits but it is safe to say that in this one we found the best of them all.

Susan & Jim obviously take great pride in their property and apart from being immaculately maintained and equipped with everything you could wish for and more.

Fishing from the dock with a cool beer – a walk on Tigertail – rent a boat for a couple of days for a picnic on Keyweydin or out in the bay with a glass of bubbly watching the sun go down – relax in the spa after a swim in the pool – a steak from the grill with a glass of wine – simply idyllic.

Renting from the UK could not have been easier as Susan answered any queries we had by return. We would not hesitate to recommend this home to any of our friends visiting Florida and it will certainly be at the top of our list if we get back to Marco again.

Thanks again for letting us use your superb home.

We found Paradise….

  • 5 of 5

We have previously rented other homes on Marco Island, but this home was by far the nicest and cleanest one we stayed in. We knew we found paradise as soon as we entered the house. Susan and Jim are so welcoming and caring. We were greeted by finding homemade strawberry jam and bagels along with a bowl of fresh fruit and a bottle of champagne! on their beautiful kitchen counter. Everything about this home is perfect and so clean. It is filled with everything you need and very well maintained.

Every room is beautifully decorated and we felt so much at peace being there.

We spent a lot of time by the pool and hot tub. It was so relaxing, especially in the evening with the special lighting. The times we were not by the pool, we were down by the dock where we fished or just sat to soak up the sun. We were amazed and thrilled to see a dolphin swim next to our dock! We also saw stingrays, sea turtles and various fish swimming by. When we return to Marco in the coming year, we will not consider any other rental. This is the home we want to rent again. We highly recommend renting this house.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review. When I am preparing my home for a guest I try to prepare it as though I was renting it myself which means it needs to be clean and inviting and say "relax and have fun". From your review that is exactly what you did and that makes me happy. I am glad that you spent some time on the dock. It is amazing what you can see there. It's fun to walk down to the dock at night to see hundreds of fish under the snook lights. Thank you for choosing my home for your vacation and thank you also for being one of my favorite guests.

Best Rental Home On Marco!

  • 5 of 5

The first word that comes to mind, Wow. This house was amazing. We have been to Marco 4 times this past year and this home was by far the best option. We stayed at the Marriott twice and rented a home twice. To say this home is clean is an understatement. It was like a model home. It was decorated beautifully and everything looked perfect. The pool was warm and the perfect size, the hot tub was great after playing at the beach for the day. The location was great if you have a boat and you want quick access out to the gulf or just to boat out for dinner at Snooks. The beds were so comfortable I took a picture of the mattress tag so we could buy one. We met a few of the neighbors and they were so friendly. Not only would we stay here again, we would attempt to schedule our vacation around this homes availability. Thank you so much Susan, for your hospitality. We made great family memories!
