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.

A Perfect Gem
This house is a perfect southwest Florida gem; it positively sparkles. Spacious, comfortable, attractively appointed, fully stocked with the tools you need for the beach vacation of your dreams. Joseph was an exceptional host, from very prompt and pleasant communication pre- and post-booking to a wealth of great info on the house and neighborhood. The pool also was perfectly maintained, and the lush pool-side landscaping turned the pool and lanai into a very private getaway; we probably spent as much time there as at the beach.
The beach itself also is gorgeous; we were unprepared for the clarity of the water. Downside: The closest beach is a public one, and while it was not crowded during the week, the weekends were a different story, which made us a bit sad. We timed the walk to the beach at about 8 minutes if you were hoofing it (hard to do when we kept stopping to gawk at the adorable burrowing owls all over the place!) or more like 10 if you are pulling a laden beach cart. The bicycles were a godsend; however, be aware they are much-loved and in varying states of wear. We didn't feel comfortable striking out farther than the beach on them, but for that run they were just fine. We would recommend this house to anybody looking for a relaxing beach stay.
Great location - all the amenities
I stayed at this home with my husband, two boys (13 & 11) and my parents. It was the perfect amount of space and had all of the amenities we needed. It was a quick walk to the beach. It was so nice to have a private pool too! Quick walk to restaurants and shops. Joe was very responsive and so nice! Hope to be back soon!
Wonderful cozy home close to beach, restaurants and shopping.
We would highly recommend this beautiful home that has everything you need for a great vacation. The house was immaculate and decorated nicely. You can tell the owners take great care of this home. The owner, Joseph was responsive from the very beginning of choosing to rent this home right to our last day making sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. All activities and restaurant suggestions were in a large binder for their guests. The heated salt water pool was so inviting with comfortable lounge chairs to relax in and completely private. It was just the two of us this trip but were still amazed by all the floats, toys and everything there for a family with children. I would not hesitate to choose this home for your vacation. You won't want to leave!!
Exceptional vacation home near the beach

Thank you so much for allowing us to enjoy this wonderful tropical paradise in your cosy and inviting vacation home.
My wife and I enjoyed a truly special time with our daughter her husband and her two little boys. We had so much fun visiting the beach, bicycling enjoying the pool and BBQ and the many restaurant suggestions that you provided ... we felt so at home here. We really appreciated all your fine attention to details, the comfortable and beautifully appointed home and surroundings, the extras like the pool toys, the wagon and chairs etc. for the beach, the binder with suggestions for outings, and food choices, It made for an awesome family vacation.
We are looking forward to coming back next year.

great Beach town
This was my first time visiting Marci Island and I loved it! The house was beautiful, spacious, and immaculate! I could tell a lot of love went into that home! My 4 year old grandson was in the pool everyday. We definitely would come back, thank you so much!
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.
