About Dr & Mrs Robert L Williams

This is our winter home. We live in Europe on another island. I am a US international tax lawyer and Petra is the Dutch mother of our 3 wonderful children and manages our properties.

Dr & Mrs Robert L Williams purchased this villa in 2000

Why Dr & Mrs Robert L Williams chose Florida South Gulf Coast

You can find plenty of 3 BR villas on Marco Island for several hundred dollars less and some higher end properties for thousands more.

But you won't find any as luxuriously decorated as this and with these views for anything near our prices. Your choice will determine whether you have the memorable vacation of a lifetime.

What makes this villa unique

Aside from vacationing on the top rated island in America, you will be in one of the few places left in the world where you can commune with vast, untouched nature as it was, and always is, here, on the border of civilization.

Luxury and relaxation. A slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we parked in the driveway I knew that this home was something special. The waterfront setting was idyllic and so private beautiful sunsets, crystal clear pool to cool off in after all day sunshine on the dock. Absolutely everything was perfect from the top end appliances in the kitchen ( it's not every holiday let that you can cook a full blown seafood gourmet meal in ) to the high thread count sheets on dreamy comfortable beds to the Trek bikes in the garage. If this gorgeous home was a hotel it would be 5 star +. The best we have ever stayed in thank you for a dream holiday in beautiful Marco. Beaches, boating , seafood just magical

Beautiful home on a Beautiful Island!

  • 5 of 5

Marco Island is a beautiful place to vacation and the house we rented was absolutely stunning! The views from the back of the house were amazing. The only thing you need to bring is your own groceries. The owners were very easy to communicate with and answered all our questions. Pack your suitcases and enjoy! You will have everything else you need in this beautiful home!

Perfect for a quiet relaxing holiday

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from 2 weeks at 380 lamplighter, after a disasterous start getting to the airport and forgetting my passport and money and having to go back home twice! I eventually made it to the gate with 10 mins to spare. We finally arrived at the house around 9pm after been travelling well over a day we was exhausted! Which brings me to my first disappointment and half star deduction, we was looking forward to a chilled drink only to find their was nothing in the cooler as expected. The following morning we did some food shopping and bought everything, when we returned to the house we finally had a good look around and discovered that there was literally everything you could hope for: ( spices, condements, bath/shower gels, creams and so on..) literally everything which was great!!. The pool was superb it was cold on first entry but that's exactly what we wanted when it's 90 plus degrees!. Took us a while to figure out the cooker tops to work and stay on but we managed to get through. Overall the house was great! Never saw 1 bug!.

The beach to go to is the south Marco beach it's superb and really easy to get to. We mostly shopped st the publix which has everything you need, occasionally we went to wall-mart for a change and look around too. Great place for breakfast is near publix called red lobster ( small, friendly, quiet great food ). Shopping malls best one is the coastland centre mall up Naples it's got a Cheesecake Factory across the street which is a must visit!. Avoid the coconut point mall waste of a trip stick to coastland for your shopping spree!. Naples zoo is ok for a few hours no more than that tho. Overall tho was a great relaxing trip.

Pros: pool and view is superb

South Marco beach great

Cleanliness to notch

Decking and fishing ( I left my ugly stik rod and reel for future people to use )

Cons: Disappointed no wine or beer in cooler on arrival as expected.

Not much to do if it rains or cloudy days.

Overall would I stay again? Yes, but only a week and have the other in Orlando.

Disappointed caught no fish :( I caught 3 last year just up the road at another villa.

All of these said we have stayed at over 20 different houses and villas over the years and this is definitely in the top 5 maybe even top 3!

Owner's Response: We thank you, for your review and take all comments of our guests seriously. We apologise that there was not a bottle of wine, as promised. We have already contacted our maintenance company to ensure that, there is always one bottle of wine in the fridge. However, we do not mention in a our rough guide, that we supply beer! We wished our guest would have advised us, of this short coming, when he arrived, as we would have immediately, had two bottles, of wine delivered to the house, one as compensation, and we would even have delivered beer, at his request. The hob is an induction hob, and there is also a pool heater. In our guide, we advise guests that if there are any problems, to advise us, so we can rectify the situation, a.s.ap. We are contactable by e-mail 24/7, by telephone and we also have a maintenance company located on Marco Island. Our aim is always to give our guests the most comfortable and best holiday on beautiful Marco Island. If it rains, there is a wonderful cinema, library and museum. In Naples there are art galleries, theatres and as mentioned Coastland Mall. There is also outside of Naples one of the best out let malls "Miramar" at exit 123. We hope our future guests will have a wonderful holiday, and we are here always to assist.

While on Marco Island:

This 4 by 6 mile island is famous for its 3 miles of powdery pink

sand beaches and has all of the restaurants, water sports and

shopping you will need on the island itself. The Island has kept its tropical roots, old Marco resembling Key West. You will find a

pristine, upmarket community with no billboards or fast food signs.

Superb fresh seafood is available locally, as are cycling paths,

nature walks and tours, and water sports, including fishing,

shelling, kayak, para-sailing, rental cruise boats, swamp boats

and day and night chartered catamaran cruises.

Life on the Island:

Is like living in a nature preserve, with pelicans fishing off the

dock, ospreys nesting atop buoys, dolphins in the waterways and the beach is home to abundant sea life and birds. The year around average temperature is 77 degrees (25.5 C), rarely exceeding 87 degrees (30 C) even in the summer and cooled by ocean breezes. 2 or 3 marinas on the island rent boats.

Other Activities: Surrounded by the Florida Everglades

Golf: Naples (20 miles away) has some of the finest public golf courses in the USA
