We have found that if we furnish and detail our home with the best of everything, our guests appreciate what is there and treat it as their own. We know that you will be one of the many, many guests who will provide positive feedback based upon an incredible stay at an ultra fine property.
No details over looked. Relax in the gorgeous heated endless pool with fountains and hot tub with waterfall surrounded by lush tropical landscapes which include orange trees, avocado trees, lemon trees, lime trees, banana trees, coconut palms, royal palms, Christmas palms, and a variety of other tropical plants and bushes. Large "point" lot affords unusual privacy. The pool is open concept with no screen cover! Enjoy the crispness of the sun and the beauty of the storm. The pool deck has sun nearly all day long and offers gorgeous sunsets! The large lanai can be open to the pool off the living areas or closed off with the click of a button which closes a large electronic screening system.
There are two bikes at the home for guest use, along with beach towels and beach chairs, beach chair caddy and beach umbrella. (4 chaise lounge chairs plus 4 additional conventional chairs and table on the pool deck)
In September of 2017 we pulled our listing from Trip Advisor, Homeaway and VRBO as they started charging our guests substantial "booking fees". On these sites this home had a FIVE STAR rating - - - Never a negative comment. As this listing is new to this site we expect reviews to come in over the course of this coming winter which will be in keeping with past review performance.
You will find our home to be extremely competitively priced. Many of our guests return every year. We are confident you will not regret a decision to rent this beautiful home on Marco Island. This truly will be a Marco Island Vacation Home to remember!
We have a minimum stay of 7 nights. We try to keep check in/check out on Saturdays but will consider stays outside of these parameters. If filling voids in the calendar shorter stays will be considered. Please inquire.
This home is a 5 minute drive from a couple of Marco Island's finest beaches, hardware stores, food stores,shopping and restaurants. Mackel Park is within a couple of minutes walk. Enjoy biking or walking around the lake at the park.
Why Kids Love It
The pool of course. But the best local attraction for kids is within a three minute walk over to Mackle Park. Google Mackle Park for pics and videos of this fabulous park.
Located at the end of a very quiet dead end street you'll not be bothered by traffic found the main roads (Heathwood, San Marco, Barfield, Collier). The exposure of this property will assure sun on the pool deck from morning until sunset. Close enough to the open waters of the gulf that dolphin sitings are common.
Attractions Within Walking Distance
Mackle Park: Outstanding.
Marco Historic Museum
Favorite Places To Eat
Snook Inn, Old Marco Inn
Rent a Pontoon Boat and visit some of the many islands close by.
As a homeowners who rent their homes it is important to provide the most cost effective way to make our homes available to guests. Many of the "bigger" players such as Homeaway, VRBO, TripAdvisor, Airbnb and others now charge guests "BOOKING FEES" which is resulting in guests paying up to 15% more for their vacation than they have to. Simply stick with sites such as , , or other new companies where the "old model" has been maintained. NO booking fees to guests. The homeowner pays a flat "subscription fee" to advertise their homes.

About the owner: We live in New Hampshire and have owned a home on Marco since 2001. We had first been to Marco back in the mid 80's. We own a vacation rental company on Lake Winnipesaukee in central NH.
Why this property? This is our second home on Marco. We sold our original home in 2009 when we found this property. It's location was perfect. Central on the island and close to everything yet is located on a very quiet dead end street. Quick out to the open Gulf and a couple of minute walk from a great park. (Mackle Park).

Guestbook comments from the owner:
We are new to FloridaRentals. We had our home listed on Homeaway but no longer advertise with them due to increased fees now charged to the owner and the guests. The comments below are just a few taken from the Homeaway site and a couple from our guest book at the house. The home had a solid 5 Star rating on Homeaway. There are over 40 positive comments logged in our guest book at the house. We have NEVER had a negative comment or any feedback rating of less than five stars on this home. Over the next few months ratings will start to show on FloridaRentals and we are confident they'll be positive as well. We hope to have you as our guests.

"This is our third year vacationing in Marco Island. First time in your beautiful home. This house is the BEST yet. Will be back same time next year! Count on it! Pool was great. Never, never had two bedrooms of this quality. Thank you for the use of your home. Again, see you next year! We appreciated TV's i every room, the wireless and the pool--simply outstanding."
My family and I stayed at this beautiful home May 2016.. The pictures don't depict how beautiful this home is.. The view was amazing, the pool is phenomenal, and all the amenities are perfect. we stayed for eight days, we rented bicycles, we fished, we went to the beach and just had an amazing time. Thank you so much for sharing your home with my family
We love Marco Island and have visited before but stayed in another home. This home was way beyond our expectations. It was class from top to bottom and had everything you could ever hope for. The pool was probably our favourite thing but the kitchen was a close second. We loved being able to look out the back and see the gorgeous sunset every night. It is the perfect location. I can't say enough good things about this home and we will absolutely be staying there again on our next visit!
My family stayed in this property from 10/02/15 to 10/10/15. Everything was PERFECT! The home was well stocked with every need. The pool and hot tub were amazing. We spent several hours just hanging out in the pool to cool off. We were close to pretty much everything. We spent a few afternoons in Naples which was also a short drive. We had a pipe in the front yard that was leaking and we called the rental agency and they had a plumber there within 20 minutes and everything was fixed within just a few minutes. (apparently its something very common on the island according to the plumber) We can't wait to get back to Marco Island and I can only hope this property will be available to rent again. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a luxury rental!
Your home is so comfortable, you have anticipated and met every need for a wonderful vacation week. We were totally exhausted from the horrible Boston winter and were craving the opportunity to bask in the sun. We spent days lying by the pool, a few walks on the beach, suppers cooked on the patio with one night dining out. We had my one year old grandson with us so the ability to provide some shade for him was fantastic. Took a bike for a spin, floated in the pool with a book enjoying your wonderful sound system. My only problem was I didn't want to leave. Have already submitted my request for next April ! Liked being there in April because the feedback I got from the natives in the grocery store is that "all the snow birds have gone home by then so it's much less crowded." My husband and I want to buy a retirement home and Marco Island is now high on my list. Thank you for the opportunity to stay at your home, I really loved it! Sincerely, Melissa White
Thanks so much Melissa. Super glad you enjoyed your stay! Look forward to having you as our guests again next year. Enjoy your summer. By the way, we're neighbors. We live in New Hampshire up on Lake Winnipesaukee. Great place to summer vacation as well. We have rentals on the lake as well. Jim
What a gem this property is.....we almost don't want to let the news escape that that this property is everything as described and more. We've rented other homes throughout FL and this one topped/exceeded our expectations without a doubt. We will definitely be back! Obviously, the pool is a fantastic feature. We were in it as often as possible! The layout of the house is ideal; lots of space with very comfortable furnishings. We immediately felt right at home. The glass sliders in the living room/kitchen area are beautiful. There's nothing like sitting inside & watching thunderstorms late at night (& dolphins in the morning!) or enjoying the sun w/o being out in the heat. The kitchen is a gourmet cook's dream. Loved the expansive countertops; lots of room to spread out! We used the BBQ practically every night. Honestly, we can't think of 1 thing we wished we had and didn't. Jim & Ann really nailed it with everything they provide (beach towels, bikes, swim noodles, beach chairs, cookware, books, etc. -- even a workout area!). For those with kids, we HIGHLY recommend the Community Center & library 2 blocks away. What great city resources!! We walked there practically every day (right past the sweet owls and their protected habitats). Working with the property management company was pleasant and easy. Really, we can't express how wonderful our experience was on the Island. It was a really wonderful vacation!!! Thank you for allowing us to share your beautiful home!
This is a beautiful property in a wonderful west facing waterfront location. The property has been equipped to the fullest and highest standard by the owners and offers every conceivable amenity. The location is quiet yet handy for all amenities, including the beaches, shops and the nearby excellent park. The swimming pool is stunning, as are the evening sunsets over the pool and canals beyond. We would highly recommend this property and hope to return ourselves at some future point.
We spent a week here with our family at the beginning of June 2014. The house was a perfect fit for us and our two adult daughters (+ 1 boyfriend). Pool time was wonderful with the outdoor stereo system. Well equipped kitchen with wonderful patio grill kept us fed most of the week. Great places on the island to dine and enjoy drinks as well. Nearby MacklePark is a nice place to walk around the .6 mile paved path. Nicely decorated place makes for an enjoyable week in South Florida.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can we use the boat lift?
Sorry, not permitted. Guests my tie up along side the dock.
How many bicycles are at the house?
Two. If more are needed there is a bike shop on the island that rents by the day or week.
We stayed in this house over the 4th of July. Before booking it we were worried about the possibility of bugs being a problem because there is no screen over the pool. The rental rep suggested we reach out directly to the owner to see if that's an issue. We did, and he was very responsive and helpful. He assured us that bugs are not a problem and he was absolutely right. We never had an issue and it was much better to be truly outside by the pool than surrounded by screens. There is still a screened in lanai next to the pool for after dark when bugs would come out anywhere in Florida. The house was immaculate, fully stocked with all the essentials, and is in a great location. We're already planning to return.

Thanks so much for your kind review. We're really glad you enjoyed your stay. I nearly put a new pool cage over the pool after a hurricane blew the original cage away. SO glad we didn't. Hope to have you as our guests again. Jim and Ann Mardis
