Private Homes house description

This villa is located in the historical area of Marco Island, with views of the Gulf of Mexico and a the infamous Indian Hill. This spectacular one-half acre lot and 125 feet on the water with a view of Caxambas Pass is in a historical area lush with landscaping and numerous birds and mammals (dolphins and manatees). There is a boat dock, (direct water-no bridge to Gulf), and the best fishing in all of Marco Island in the Caxambas Pass area and great fishing just off the dock!

The apartment has a bedroom w/ king bed, t.v. and a separate room w/ kitchen, washer/dryer, trundle couch w/ 2 single beds, living room w/ 40' t.v., bath. Off the apartment/cabana, is the screen-in pool, The pool is centrally located in the middle of the home and heated in the winter months. The Courtyard separates the cabana from the main house and has hand painted tropical images. There are 3 tables/chairs, lounges, and gas grill, fridge outside for outdoor living. This villa is in the 'Estate area' of Marco Island, the most affluent area on Marco where the lots are at least 1/2 acre and custom large homes are presented.

This property is located across from Indian Hill; where the famous Calusa Indians lived on Marco over 2000 years ago and built the shell mounds (small mountains) for housing, security and to avoid flooding. There have been many artifacts found in the area. There are many affluent homes, large lots, beautiful vegetation, and wildlife. The canals are filled with manatees and occasional dolphins, as well as the best fishing in Marco Island. Our beautiful white sandy beaches are less than 5 minutes away.

Experience the spaciousness of this special neighborhood with gracious living, and the quietness of paradise for you to experience, (instead of listening to the neighbor's air conditioning system on the smaller lots in Marco Island.) Several of our guests have walked to South Beach and the stores at the Publix Shopping Center.

                          Marco Island is the ultimate resort area where the sugar white beaches enhance anything from walking, shelling, boating, swimming, jet ski rentals, etc. The Everglade Park spreads hundreds of miles east with lots of wildlife, gators, birds, tropical scenes, and the 'Back in Time', Everglade City and Chokoloskee where remains of Old Florida settlements and antiques still survive. A trip to the Keys or Orlando is just a few hours away. Enjoy affluent Naples where shopping and real estate are a must to see. Fabulous restaurants, entertainment and nature are only yours to explore; outstanding chefs and island treats.


                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2000

                          About the owner: I work in real estate on Marco Island and operate a model home. Being in the real estate business for approximately 28 years, I have also enjoyed travelling and living in various countries abroad. We use vrbo when travelling too.

                          Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                          It is in the affluent area of Marco Island where the small hills, tortises, birds, are present and beautiful scenery everywhere.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          This area of Marco Island is in a historical area where the Calusa Indians once lived and makes it an interesting location. The most unique thing about the property is the view and the access to the best fishing on Marco. And while you are boating out to the great fishing grounds, you'll see multi-million dollar homes along the waterways. This is Utopia.
