You’re coming to Marco Island for the sunshine. Make sure you can enjoy it!
When you’re contemplating which property to rent on Marco, pay close attention to the pool area. Is the pool large enough for your group to enjoy? Does the pool get sunshine throughout the day? Are there sufficient lounge chairs and multiple seating areas outdoors for everyone? Is there room to move furniture around to catch the sun? Given that most people come to Marco for the sunshine, you’d be surprised how many places don’t offer these things. Many of our guests comment that they came for the beautiful beaches, but find they rarely leave. Why should they? Our pool area faces the 'all important' south direction for maximum sunshine throughout the day and is one of the largest private pools on the island. We have enough outdoor lounge chairs & tables for large groups to relax around the large 20x40 foot, heated, in-ground pool. And there are areas where you can sit in the shade if you prefer.
The unique layout of our home offers more privacy (and tranquility) than other homes which is important if you're on vacation. Our 4 bdrm/4 bath home is located at the end of a peaceful cul de sac. The unique layout of our air-conditioned home with 3 different buildings in an L-shape design (all under one roof) built around the pool provides extra space and privacy for guests. The main building has the living room, dining room, modern kitchen and breakfast bar, king sized bed bedroom & bath. The second building has 3 bedrooms, (another king, a queen & the upstairs room has a queen bed and 2 single beds) with 2 more bathrooms. The 3rd building consists of another bathroom, laundry & garage. This stand-alone extra bathroom is great for those that want to get up early (maybe to go for a morning walk/run or escape to Starbucks) and not disturb other late sleepers. The house has been recently redecorated and updated with new furniture and and flooring. It is located less than 5 minutes away from the main shopping area and 47 places to eat including the famous Snook Inn and other excellent restaurants.
The estate sits on a large end of cul-de-sac "tip lot" with 260 feet of waterfront frontage! (Something very rare for a rental property.) The house has 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and a large 20x40 foot in-ground pool, (typical pools are 12 x 24 feet), that is heated.
Please read on for more details. We also encourage you to email us first with any questions prior to making a reservation request. (Fees are non-refundable after a reservation request has been made.)
LAYOUT OF HOUSE DESCRIPTION
The layout of the house is fantastic with 3 different buildings in an L-shape design (all under one roof) built around the pool.
The main building has the living room, formal dining room, modern kitchen, the master bedroom and modern bathroom. The living room has a large 60-inch, flat screen television. One of the walls in the living room is all patio doors that overlooks the pool area so people can sit in the living room and visit (or watch TV) while still being able to keep an eye on people in the pool area. There are 3 full length sofas so there are plenty of places to sit. The dining room has a formal dining table and 10 chairs. The kitchen has beautiful cabinets with soft-closing hardware and all the amenities including a microwave, refrigerator with ice maker, dishwasher and coffee maker. The kitchen is fully stocked with flatware, pots & pans etc. The bedroom in this building has a king-size bed, TV and modern bathroom with walk-in shower. Linens are included for all beds and there are beach towels as well. Every bedroom has at least a 20' remote controlled TV with cable and some have DVD players.
The second building has 3 bedrooms. One with a King sized bed, separate vanity and dressing area, a Queen suite with separate vanity, and the upstairs bedroom which has a Queen bed and 2 twin beds in the same room. This building also has 2 more bathrooms. Every bedroom has an entrance to a bathroom.
The third building consists of the pool changing room, another bathroom with a walk-in shower, the laundry room (which is nice because it's away from all the sleeping areas) and the garage. The bathroom is located near the pool so people don't have to run inside the house while they're wet. This bathroom is popular for those that like to get up early and not disturb other late sleepers or for runners that want to get their early morning run in and come back and shower while others are sleeping.
POOL & DECK
The large, 40 foot long in-ground pool, is heated by both a solar cover and a heater. The pool sits on the south side of the house so the sun is shining on the area for most of the day (perfect for sun bathing). The large, 1,000 square foot deck was heavily researched to be built with the most modern materials. It is made of a newly developed composite material (not wood but feels & looks like wood) so kids do not have to worry about getting splinters in their feet when walking around the pool area. It is also much cooler to the touch than wood.
The house is perfect for families or up to four couples.
There are nearly 50 restaurants including the famous Snook Inn, 2 grocery stores, 2 drug stores and numerous shops within 5 min of the house. There are also 2 places where you can rent and dock a boat, (boats can't be kept at the property), if you would like to go fishing or just exploring. If you decide to go further afield, it's quick and easy to get off the island to go golfing or up to Naples.
Fabulous Marco Vacation Estate: Great Pool, Views, Location & Layout, Free WiFi
And as much as you'll enjoy the pool area, you'll want to visit Marco Island's fabulous 3.5 mile powdery white sand beaches, only 7 minute from the house.
Please note that events/parties are not permitted at the house. Dock is not available for guest use.

About the owner: My uncle moved to Marco Island when it was being developed in the late 1960s. He chose this island versus other parts of Southwest Florida because it has the best weather and most sunshine and couldn't understand why everyone was developing elsewhere. The beautiful powdery white sand beaches on Marco are some of the best in the United States. I like the fact that although the island is only 4 miles by 6 miles it is accessible by two bridges and has all the modern amenities without being crowded. There is a wonderful feeling being in Marco Island. I chose this house because of the unique layout and the history of the home. Back when the island was being built there were 5 phases of development. The 3rd, 4th and 5th phases were stopped when it emerged that the 4th and 5th phases were going to destroy valuable mangroves. The developers then lobbied Washington and Richard Nixon himself to broker a deal to allow the development of the 3rd phase as long as they didn't develop the 4th and 5th phases. The house was built for Richard Nixon who stayed here during his visits to Marco Island. The layout is unique because they had to develop it for the secret service staff as well as the president.
Why this property? Although most people come to Marco Island for the beaches we consistently get the comment that most people loved the idea that they could completely relax at the house without having to go anywhere. With the unique layout guests have the flexibility to get up when they want without disturbing others, make meals when they want, go fishing, layout at the pool on the beautiful sundeck, visit in the living room while watching the kids swim in the pool, check their emails while laying out by the pool (if you call this a vacation) or spot dolphins or manatees from the backyard. Everyone can move at their own pace without disturbing others - a true vacation for all.

Guestbook comments from the owner:
Our family was beyond pleased with the home, views, location and pool. The layout of the home is unique and walking in the front door was like walking into your own slice of paradise! The owner, Deborah, was extremely prompt to answer all emails prior to our travel and personally took time to check in with us during our stay! A perfect getaway of which we would highly recommend!!
My family loved this villa and we will definitely come back on our next Florida visit. The kids spent hours in the pool each day which made for a very relaxing holiday for the adults. The property has a massive pool & and lovely views of the water. The kitchen looks out to the pool so we could be fixing meals and not feel left out of the action around the pool. It is conveniently located to shops good restaurants. The place was spotless and fully equipped with everything we could want including pool toys for the kids and an even an electric kettle - something unusual for American rentals it seems. Highly recommended.
Thank you for a fantastic stay! The house was perfect for our family and we enjoyed hours around the huge pool. We even saw a mantee! This was our first trip to Marco Island, and even though we came all the way from Amsterdam, we hope to be back next year. When we do we'll be sure to stay here. The house was as described, very clean and exceeded our expectations.
4 couples from Iowa stayed 12/5-12/12. Great property for 4 couples. Everything was exactly as stated, no surprises. Owner called me just after we arrived to make sure everything was good. She made time even tho she was in London.
We cooked breakfast every morning and ate by the pool. The pool area was an awesome place to hang out and enjoy the weather. Lots of great places to eat in the evenings.
1st time to Marco Island and I hope it's not the last.
Very interesting home with two units joined be a courtyard. Beautiful pool long enough for lap swimming and large pool deck in the sun most of the day. Large well appointed kitchen, and adjoining sitting area with TV. We would live to come back again.
The house was the perfect getaway during such difficult times. The house was spotless and we liked that there was buffer time in between stays. We spent all day at the pool and rarely left. It was huge and we loved having it all to ourselves. Everything was super comfortable - huge sofas for movies at night and bedrooms were spread out so everyone had their own space. Even though most of the restaurants were open for dining, we ate at home - delivery, on the grill, plenty of room in the kitchen for family meals.Great stay!

Amazing family house right on the water!
I can't say enough good things about this place! It was the perfect space for our entire family. The buildings are separate so you have to walk outside from building to building, but they are all under one roof. This worked out perfectly for our large family! The pool and deck were incredible and being on the water was so relaxing. We even saw dolphins a couple of times! The house is in walking distance/bike ride of grocery stores, starbucks and other restaurants. It was honestly the perfect location! Deborah was extremely accommodating and was available whenever we needed her. Hope to make it back to this paradise one day!

Perfect Family Getaway
Our three generation family had a fantastic family vacation here. The pool is even more amazing than it looks in the pictures. We enjoyed lots of sunshine throughout the day, but there were also areas to get out of the sun.The split layout was unlike anything we had seen and it worked perfectly for us. We all joined in preparing family meals, lounged on the three- yes three- sofas to play games and watch movies and at night everyone had their own space.Marco Island was everything we had hoped it would be and we can't wait to return.
