Perfect home for multi-family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was extraordinary and is perfect for 2-3 couples, or a larger family! The pictures closely depict what you'll be stepping into. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, utensils, glasses, plates, silverware etc. We cooked several meals during our stay. There are several bicycles in a variety of sizes to enjoy. The pool is lovely, and we enjoyed the hot tub in early January. The house is located on a quiet cul-de-sac and is extremely comfortable. Carole and Marco Island Vacations were easy to work with, and answered all of my questions promptly. Carole provides a detailed guide on their house and what to do near Marco Island. While we were there, we bicycling around the island which was an afternoon adventure, went to the nearest beach near the Marriott which is a 20-30 minute walk or a 10-12 minute bike ride, and enjoyed the sun by the pool & dock. One day we drove to Everglade City and took an airboat ride which was really fun. Along the drive you'll see plenty of alligators sunning themselves. Thanks for sharing your lovely home!

Best VRBO in Marco Island!

  • 5 of 5

Best Marco Island vacation home ever! We have been coming to Marco Island for 3 years. Each year we have stayed in a VRBO house. And each year we try a new one. This is the first time we will go out of our way to get into the same house next year. The pictures are good, but the actual house is even better – how many times does that happen? The owners have thought of everything to make a stay something to remember, enjoyable, and with unique ways to stay entertained:

• The furniture is updated, and very comfortable (best beds/pillows/couch);

• There are games for kids and adults (Clue was my kids’ favorite);

• There are books for reading;

• The hot tub gets warm fast;

• There are many QUALITY fluffy towels for beach, pool, and bathroom use;

• The pool deck and dock have comfortable, numerous seating areas;

• The dock is special – it is lit at night, and we saw stingrays, dolphins, sea turtles, and other fish/sea life from the dock each day;

• The art in the house is fantastic;

• The internet is wireless and fast;

• The televisions (not that you will want to turn one on) are flat screen with great pictures;

• There are indoor and outdoor dishes and cups;

• The bikes are updated and there are 9 (for $50 you can also rent a child bike trailer from Island Bike Rentals for a week – and we were able to all ride bikes and carry everything to the beach – no driving needed)!

• There are kayaks for use in the canals (with lifejackets);

• There are pool floats and noodles that are in good shape; and

• There are beach activities/a cooler/beach chairs for those trips to the ocean.

The owners have just done a great job stocking the house with everything a family needs to have a great vacation. Thanks for sharing your place with us!

Amazing Time With the Family

  • 5 of 5

This rental house was amazing. There isn't one thing that the owners didn't think of that would have made our stay even more complete. The house on line looks exactly like it when you walk in the front door. Having your own pool made it perfect. The dophins coming up the dock completed our stay. Every night we went on the dock and talked, sometimes even played a bd. game.

There was a time that the internet went out due to a router and they came one day to pick it up and on Sunday set it up again. If there was a question it was answered immediately.

The house was very clean and well equipped. We left a detailed agenda and numbers for what we did when we were there for the next renters, even were to eat.

You won't be sorry. We can't wait to come again.

Wonderful Vacation for All

  • 5 of 5

What a great house in such a great location. Nice open view and great canal access for boats. There were 5 adults and a 6 year old in our party. We couldn't keep my nephew out of the heated pool. We rented a pontoon boat for 3 days and it was great walking right out to it and taking off. The owners also put an LED light in the water off the dock and you could see tons of different different fish at night. The house was exactly like it looks in the pictures. Modern and clean. We had one night where it rained and we opened the sliding glass wall for a indoor/outdoor vibe. Phenomenal. There are many bikes with helmets and baskets. The quick 5 minute bike ride to the beach was a breeze even with a beach chair on my back. There are also these super cute little burrowing owls on a couple of vacant lots in the neighborhood. That was a nice surprise. I would highly recommend this home for a great time!!

Great Home on Marco

  • 5 of 5

We go to Marco every year and this was our first time staying at this home. The home was very accommodating for kids and adults. We had all the amenities we needed. Plenty of beach chairs, and there was even tools in the garage if needed. The bikes and kayaks were a plus. We kayaked to the Esplanade shops or rode bikes to breakfast/Starbucks every morning. Its also a short bike ride to the beach. The only downside for us was the fourth bedroom, which is a den off of the living room. You can hear any noise from the living room or kitchen from this room, but it would be fine for someone who wakes up early. That was really the only downside, every thing else worked out very well. We will likely rent this home again next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of our home. We are really pleased that you were able to make the most of the kayaks and bicycles during your vacation. We feel that it is a bonus to have the 8 bicycles available for the renter's use as we spent a lot of money renting the first few times that we stayed on Marco. We are looking forward to welcoming you back to the house in the future.

Amazing place - even better than the photos

  • 5 of 5

After a manic week in Orlando we wanted a place to relax. This looked like a great venue in the pictures. When we arrived, we were blown away by the house. It was the easiest week I have spent in Florida. The house is great to spend time in and has everything you need and more. The pool is great and the hot tub perfect to unwind and look at the boats passing by. One day we were even treated to a display from the local dolphins! The only downside with the property is that you don't want to leave!

We will certainly be back and we have never before gone back to the same place - says everything.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the superb review of our dream house on Marco Island. We own the house with another couple with whom we have holidayed at least twice a year for the last 23 years. When we bought the house together, we looked for something special with a wow factor and then we wanted to put our own stamp on to it with classy furnishings so that we could enjoy the house when we stay there.

Welcome to our little slice of paradise! When we first came to Marco, we fell in love with the Island - we loved it so much that we bought a house here. A house that has some of the best views on the island, is in prime location for shops and restaurants, and is only a few minutes walk to the beach (even less if you cycle!).
