Welcome to 'Paradise Found'.......your family friendly retreat, with all the comforts of home.

South Beach ~ Marco's most spectacular white sand shelling beach is an easy, six minute walk away. Once you go to South beach you will never go back to Tigertail beach. Sunset Grille beach bar is 6 minutes away. Watch the sunset and have a drink.

Grab some groceries, your favorite ice cold beverages and check-in! Walk or bike to everything you've dreamed of for a relaxing, fun-filled vacation. Movies, ice cream parlors, surf shops, beach toys, and nightclubs galore. Indulge in luxury Spas, specialty restaurants, and the most incredible sunsets in the world. We love to go fishing with a local guide and then cook our catch at home on the BBQ.

No old bike at this house, we have 2 new adult bikes for your use.

Marco Island is natures paradise, filled with tropical flowers, sights, sounds and smells. Ease into Marco's laid back lifestyle. Loose yourself and discover 'Island Time' amidst friendly, helpful locals.

We have Pack N Play & Highchair for the little ones.

Ask if you can get a discount for just one couple.. Don't let the size of this home intimidate you couples out there.. When it's just my wife and I we love it.

Spread out and relax in our 4 comfortable bedrooms. The Master bedroom has a luxurious King bed, it's own full bath and a private entrance to your crystal clear pool. Another bedroom has a Queen bed, with a full bath right across the hall and just steps from the pool. The third bedroom has 2 Twin beds and the fourth has one Twin bed with a half bathroom. There is also a large living-room with a sleeper sofa and a family room with an additional sofa. Imagine two separate living areas, one for the kids and one for the adults. The floor plan is soooo cool!

You will not be able to keep the kids out of the pool.

Fly into Ft. Meyers (1 hour away) or Naples (35 minutes away) or Miami or Ft. Lauderdale (each about 2 hours away). You can rent a car or take a taxi from any of these airports or rent a car on the island. Call or e-mail us any time if you have questions or want to reserve your stay.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About the owner: Elizabeth and I met and live in Alaska and have been visiting Marco for 20 years. We have two wonderful sons Brad and Ian and three beautiful grandchildren, Gus, Henry and Lucy. For the past 20 years during the cold Alaskan winters we have vacationed on Marco, and for many years dreamed of having our own little slice of Paradise here. Our dream has finally come true! In Alaska we enjoy fishing, boating, and hiking in - the 'Last Frontier'. We are surrounded by spectacular mountains, glaciers, rivers, ocean and wildlife. We feel incredibly blessed by all that we share in life, particularly each other and our family. We sincerely hope you come to 'Paradise Found' on Marco to share our home and come back often. Please read all our reviews, our guest tell a wonderful story about our Paradise Found.

              Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
              'Paradise Found' is all about Location, location, location. An affordable vacation rental home with all the charm and convenience you could hope for. Our home is an easy six minute walk to South Beach entrance, one of the most spectacular, white sand beaches in all of Florida, with an amazingly energetic, life-renewing sunset - every night! Watch for the 'Green flash'! Mom and Dad have a home on Marco Island and we just knew we wanted to own on Marco too! This is not for profit rental so our rental rates are the best on the island.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              'Pardise Found' is literally CLOSE to EVERYTHING you could ever hope for during your stay. Use our 2 new comfort Bikes or walk to unique shops and fabulous restaurants with wonderful seafood or steak dinners.... and fresh, fresh, fresh fruits and salad selections. Share a fresh tropical drink and sunset with someone you love, ease back into the 'local' Marco scene, forget about life for a while...and just enjoy! Yes our blender is standing by! Yes the pool is heated and no we do not charge you extra to heat the pool! This home is truly the most affordable 4 bedroom home on Marco. We love love love our home and hope it shows.
