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.

Couldn't have been more perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We were originally planning a cruise and decided to rent a house in Florida instead. We couldn't have made a better decision. This couldn't have been more perfect setting for our family. My wife is a real estate agent and commented that sometimes houses aren't what they seem like online. That is not the case here as the layout and pool size are much greater than anticipated. Everything you need is there including beach chairs, pool toys, etc. Joseph called in to make sure everything was great which was a really nice touch. This was a perfect place to stay for our family and we will be back for sure! This experience exceeded our expectations by far! While you're there try Snooks Inn for a great view, super food, and live bands.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

This house met all of our needs and more. The beach is not far. The bikes were so fun. The island is very bike friendly. Anything you would want at the beach or pool is available. The owner is very helpful and easy to work with. Our family of six adults all thought it was a great place.

Perfect layout for family + fully stocked

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 enjoyed everything the house offered...perfect layout with parents on one end and 2 bedrooms w/bath room on other side with a family room in between. House is perfect size, not too small, not too big. great back deck and patio around pool (perfect gating system if you have small children). We used the pool A LOT but also took daily walks to beach/ocean. We ate in for nearly all meals and house had every pan/appliance you'd need. Owner checked in on us at beginning of trip and then a few times over email...never had an issue, but felt if we did, it would be addressed immediately. Made our family trip easy, relaxing and memorable. If you are going to Marco, this house's location, layout and amenities are for you.

Have your dream vacation in this lovely home!!!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect, clean accommodations for a family, in a beautiful neighborhood. We cannot wait to come back to this house. We had 6 adults and a baby. The house is equipped with everything that you need for a wonderful vacation. All essentials for a baby are provided for you, a high chair, pack-n-play, baby float for the pool, and even 2 large rocking chairs on the front porch to rock those babies, etc. The kitchen has all of the utensils, dishes, flatware, pans, necessary for a good meal. We used the grill a couple of nights on the cozy back deck. The heated pool and pool toys were well-used every day by our family. The large living area is combined with the eating area, so there was a lot of area to spread out. The beach is close and there are beach chairs and an umbrella available in wheeled carts to take to the beach. There were a few bicycles, too. The beach is wide and makes for a nice walk. The beach makes a great spot for sunset family pictures!!! There are several restaurants and shopping nearby. The grocery is close, so that made shopping easy (note-the grocery and other stores seem to close at 9:00). The owner of the home, Joseph, was fabulous to work with, and checked on us to see if we got in and settled okay. He was very available. None of us wanted to leave!!!

The house was perfect and very clean.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in your home. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. We went to the beach and used the pool everyday. We couldn't have asked for anything better. Thanks for calling to welcome us and check in the first day. We hope to come and stay again!

Beautiful home close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our week at this wonderful home. We actually stayed here 11yrs ago when it was owned by a different owner. It was even better than we remembered. My wife, 4 daughters and I loved everything about this property and the kids were begging us to stay permanently. The owners were kind enough to have the lights on & music playing when we arrived. They also called to verify everything was satisfactory and even gave us a recipe for the fish we brought home when fishing with a guide they recommended. We wrote about all the things we did and recommendations in the log book at the house. The proximity to the beach, pool, outdoor deck & grill are added bonuses to an already amazing home. Joe, my entire family thanks you and your wife for opening this home to us and the hospitality. We hope we can get back soon!

The Dudley Family!

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.

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.
