Private Homes villa description
Thinking about a vacation or just want to get away for a bit. Come relax in our lovely 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, Marco Island waterfront home. You'll be in paradise the moment you view your charming 'home away from home.'
This bright, spacious and open home features a fully equipped kitchen, a family room that has been recently painted and floor tiled, and a private master suite opening onto the picturesque lanai. Home includes 4 flatscreen TVs as well as wireless internet.
Enjoy the southern exposure in the morning while having a cup of coffee on the lanai and continue to enjoy it throughout the day ending with a glass of wine.
Swim in the heated pool which has recently been completely refinished.
We are only 2.5 miles from Tigertail Beach to the north and South Beach to the south...a must see for beach lovers. So that you can take advantage of either or both...we will reimburse you the cost of your daily parking at either public beach.
Also we are only 2 miles from the marina which offers tours to the 10,000 Islands Dolphin Project which was featured in a new book issued in February 2013 by National Geographic called '100 Places That Can Change Your Child's Life: From Your Backyard to the Ends of the Earth.'
Grill dinner on the lanai or dine out at Marco Islands' many fabulous restaurants. We have 2 large boats docks. One dock has a boat life that can handle a 5,000 lb boat. These docks give you easy water access. Walk to the nearby YMCA for a workout. Enjoy unique shopping. Play golf at one of the many world class Naples area Golf courses
Whatever you choose to do, you'll be glad you stayed.

Our family stayed here for a fabulous Christmas vacation. The house is very well maintained, spotlessly clean, and comfortably furnished. It is even more spacious and nice than the photos depict. With the heated pool and lanai over looking the canal and dock it was so relaxing one hardly needed to leave the house! We loved having our morning coffee on the lanai and watching the pelicans, egrets and all the beautiful birds. While star gazing from the dock one night we were delighted to see a huge dolphin cruising down the canal and swim right under the dock below our feet! We also were so excited to see the bioluminescence appear one evening in the water; very cool to swim at night in the lighted pool as well! It is in a great location; close to nearby beaches, resort areas, restaurants and shops, but off the main drag and in a quiet residential area. We had a blast going to the Everglades National Park, Manatee boat tour, Big Cyprus National Park, golfing and fantastic restaurants, local beaches, movies etc. At the end of the day a return to the house was a pleasure for more relaxing and evening dips in the pool; so much nicer than a hotel or condo stay as all the comforts of home for cooking or grilling are there. Everyone in the family is talking about a return!! We had never been to Marco before but we will definitely return. This was our first rental experience with VRBO; the owner and agent were very easy to deal with and the rental process made simple. Highly recommend this property.

Owner response: It was truly my pleasure to work with you. From your initial inquiry and the follow up conversations...I was happy to help. It would be awesome to share our home with you again next year.
A great memorable vacation and we are looking forward to returning!!! The house has a great location on the Island close to the beaches, shopping, and night life. The grounds were beautiful and the interior was very comfortable and extremely clean! We spend a lot of time in the lanai and pool area which viewed the dock. We also caught a lot of fish off the dock that was very exciting. The owner Mary Jo was an awesome hostess and very easy to work with as we were planning our vacation. I would recommend staying here to all my friends & family!

Owner response: Thank you so much Joyce for posting your review. I'm glad you enjoyed the fishing rods (of which we seem to constantly accumulate more). Thanks for taking such wonderful photos of our Marco home and sharing them with me. You will see that I have taken the liberty of posting many of them out to VRBO. Looking forward to your next visit.
What a fantastic vacation we had! The home was beautiful and loved the heated pool. To get up in the morning and see the beautiful sunrises was awesome. Each night we went to the beach and watched the sunset, which was breath-taking. So relaxing, and yet so much to do. We went parasailing, did a sunset cruise with drinks and appetizers, visited Naples and Sanibel Island. We had so much fun walking the beach and swimming. It was amazing to see the thousands of sea shells. No question, we will definitely be returning for another week of paradise. Thank you!!!!!

Great family getaway destination!
Great family getaway destination!
A very comfortable and well appointed home close to the beach with boat dock and beautiful pool. This home was just perfect for our long weekend getaway, with room for our whole family and gave us the ability to entertain while on Marco Island. Mary Jo was a pleasure to work with on the transaction. The property is just minutes from all the amenities that Marco Island has to offer.

Great week for a vacation

The home is very spacious and comfortable, the pool was great, very large as we had visited some other homes and ours was larger and deeper. The pool was also very clean and warm. The Weber grill was great as we barbecued at least everyday we were there. The beach chairs were great to take with us to the many beaches in the area. We would recommend this to our friends.

This home is amazing.. it is the second time I have rented this house and I can't wait for the next time. I was with both of my teenage kids, who also had a blast!! they loved the night swimming. The house is clean, comfortable, and most of all relaxing!! Having a pool right out side the master bedroom (mine :) ) and the family room was the best. SItting poolside, there was a manatee and her baby right by the dock!!! The house is close to the beach with so many family activities, close to Naples, the Everglades (Air boat taken off my bucket list!!) and tons of shopping plus amazing restaurants.. Anyone who has an opportunity to stay here should absolutely do so, you will not be disappointed!!

We really enjoyed our stay here. It had so much to offer from the large pool and deck to the nice open floor plan with a very nice kitchen. House had everything we were looking for and more. We already all agreed that when we come back, this is our place. You wont be disappointed.

This place was exactly what we were looking for!!!! We were in town for a wedding and wanted to spend some extra time in marco island..... So peaceful!! The house had more than enough room for everyone to spread out - the pool was an added bonus to float around in!! So close to everything - it was perfect!!! Thank you!!!

Owner response: Everyone needs a bit of 'downtown' when there is a wedding. Glad you enjoyed our home. Thanks for sharing a review with us.
We spent four glorious days on Marco Island in this lovely and comfortable home located right on a canal. The house wraps around a screen enclosed pool which provides a very comfortable area for fun in the sun or reading a book in the shade while overlooking the canal. We enjoyed most of our home cooked meals out by the pool. There is also a dock with boat slips for your boat or a boat rental from a nearby by marina for a few days or just fish from the dock. It is conveniently located close to any needs you may have such as markets, shopping, restaurants and bars and of course beaches. We enjoyed some very nice bike rides through the neighborhoods and down Bald Eagle Drive for some fresh fish to grill. The bikes come with the house stored in the two car garage along with beach chairs, umbrella and ice chests. The house is spotless and comes with a very well equipped kitchen, handy washer and dryer and deep sink to rinse off sand. We had a blast walking the three mile Tigertail Beach collecting shells and watching the very exciting parasail surfers. Tigertail Beach is a really cool spit of land that reaches out into the Gulf with open surf on one side and a calm lagoon on the other. We had some drinks and appetizers at the appropriately named Sunset Grille a couple of evenings. Stilts Bar & Grille looks to be another good location for viewing the sunset over the Gulf. We hope to try it on our next visit. Everything is close by on Marco Island.

About the owner: We live in Oklahoma but our hearts set with the sun each night on Marco Island. We know you will love the island as much as we do.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
We fell in love with Marco Island several years ago when we went down for a family birthday. After years of renting, we decided to buy our own home. Marco Island is active but not busy, quiet but far from boring and has everything you will need for a vacation to remember. We absolutely love the island and the people. We know you will too!!!
