About Joseph Castaldi

This is our home away from home and we enjoy delighting those who have had an opportunity to stay here.

Why Joseph Castaldi chose Marco Island

We love the proximity to the beach and all the amenities of the south end of the island. The quiet street and private salt water pool make it a paradise to enjoy all year round. Just read our reviews. This house is a gem with all the amenities. 5 star all the way.

Great Place to Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 10 days with our adult children and spouse, and grandchild - what a fantastic place to relax and have fun. The home has everything you need and is a quick walk to the beach. The neighborhood is quiet and very close to everything. We loved the in the ground pool and the outside covered porch. The owner Joseph is very responsive to all communications and extremely helpful and accommodating. If we come back to Marco - will definitely stay here again. Thanks!

Übertraf unsere Erwartungen!

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren 10 Tage in diesem wunderschönen Haus, mit zwei Kindern im Alter von 3 und 6. Es gibt Absperrgitter zum Pool und für noch kleinere Kinder hätte es auch zwei Innengitter gegeben, um im Haus noch etwas abzusperren.

Joseph war schon im Vorfeld äußerst hilfsbereit, beantwortete Fragen und kümmerte sich darum, dass alles stimmt.

Das Haus ist eins der saubersten, in denen wir gewohnt haben, wenn nicht das sauberste! Umfangreiche Ausstattung, sowohl im Haus als auch für den Strand. Der Pool ist wunderschön, beheizt, fast uneinsehbar und auf der Terrasse haben wir gerne gesessen und auch den Grill sehr gerne genutzt. Auch der war sehr sauber, was auch woanders nicht der Fall ist.

Wir haben uns rundum wohlgefühlt und leider gezwungenermaßen mehr Zeit im Haus verbracht als geplant, da wir sehr viel Regen und Gewitter hatten, was aber dank des tollen Hauses halb so wild war. Die Lage ist super, zu Fuß ist man schnell am Strand und mit dem Auto ist alles, was man braucht, innerhalb 10 Minuten erreichbar.

Wir planen schon unseren nächsten Urlaub hier!

Spacious, well maintained, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days in Joseph's house this winter and had a wonderful stay. The house is in a great location, minutes away from south beach.

Everything was clean and well equipped, and you can tell some thought has been put into making sure the house was very child friendly, which was important to us as we were traveling with our 3 y/o daughter.

Joseph is a fantastic host who went above and beyond in every conceivable way to help make our stay more enjoyable. Thank you Joseph for everything!

The property is well maintained, clean, well furnished; close to the beach and shopping nearby as well. The pool area is the best. The surrounding neighbourhood is a nice place to bike and walk in the early warm evenings.

The owner, Joe, was most helpful through the whole rental process.

He has a home where we hope to return soon with our family.

This is a Key West, Floridian Style home sitting just 3 blocks from one of the best white sandy beaches in the world. Marco Island is on the southern Gulf Coast of Florida, just south of Naples and approximately 50 miles south of Ft Myers, and the Southwest Florida International Airport ( RSW ). Marco Island is known for its restaurants, and generally laid back atmosphere. It's a great place for families, honeymooners, or vacationers that want a tropical get away without the hassles of thousands of youthful ' Springbreakers' interrupting their stay. There are enough activities to keep you as busy as you want to be. Back water and deep sea fishing, parasailing, jet skiing, golf, tennis, shelling , everglade tours and boating are all availble nearby. Take a day and travel to Ft Myers to see the historical Thomas Edison Home and Ford Estate built in the early 1900's. Naples is just 30 minutes away and has hundreds of up-scale boutiques and restaurants. Come and explore SWFL.

Other Activities: Miles of beach to explore and enjoy, jet skiing, para sailing, everglade tours, stand up paddle boarding, back water and deep sea fishing, eco tours, Manatee and dolphin sightseeing tours.

Golf: There are two golf communities that allow public play nearby / Fiddlers Creek and Hammock Bay and many other courses in the Naples area.
