Private Homes house description

Our lovely waterfront home has a western exposure for beautiful sunsets. We live in the home ourselves from Jan-May and rent it out from May-December. You will enjoy relaxing in our large screened lanai with heated pool and spa and watching the manatees frolic in the bay.

Our home has a private dock with 170' on the water for fishing or boating. The master bedroom has a king-size bed and its own bath. The second bedroom also has a king-size bed and the third bedroom has two twin beds. The home is luxuriously furnished.

We're located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac and if total rest and relaxation is what you're looking for, you can find it here.

We have direct access to the gulf and so you can boat out to the Marco River in a few minutes and enjoy fishing or going island hopping and walking the beautiful gulf beaches collecting shells.

              Owner info

              About the owner: We always loved Florida and had many memorable vacations with our children when they were small. Living on a lake in northern Illinois we enjoyed all the winter sports there but the lure of warm Florida sunshine brought us to wishing for our own Florida home. We wanted an area that was warm throughout the year and on the water since we love boating. We enjoy living in our Marco Island home for at part of the year and renting it out when we are not here. Bob & Pat

              Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
              We searched the area and found Marco Island to have everything we wished for. Beautiful white sand beaches where one can walk for miles and collect exotic seashells, a warm climate all of the year, great boating opportunities, shopping and restaurants nearby and friendly people. We found our beautiful waterfront home and built a pool and spa for extra enjoyment.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Wonderful heated pool with full sun from sunrise to sunset.
