Private Homes house description

Our rental philosophy is quite simple, we want you to have wonderful and lasting memories of your Marco Island vacation! In September 2011 we purchased our home, which is ideally located a few blocks walk to the beautiful white sand beach of Marco Island. Our fully furnished, 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom waterfront home with private saltwater pool is also a few minutes walk from a number of excellent restaurants, shops, miniature golf course, ice cream parlor, movie theater and luxury resort spas.

Our home has a fantastic Southern exposure water view, and you can easily depart from our private dock and be in the Gulf of Mexico within 10 minutes. We have bikes, fishing poles, wifi, a pool table, DVD's, board games, pool toys, books....everything you need for the perfect Marco Island vacation!

If our home is booked, please consider our other Marco Island home (VRBO #3761989ha or HomeAway #3761989). For families or friends vacationing together, renting both properties could be an ideal situation!

              Guests who have recently stayed in our home have said:

              'This is my third year to vacation in Marco Island, and my second time to rent a home from Dawn and Dave. The house has everything you could possibly need...and MORE. Seriously, just pack your clothes and enjoy. The pictures do not lie. The layout of the house works perfectly...master on one side and game room and guest rooms on the other. The property is beyond clean inside and out. The pool is very refreshing and gets PLENTY of sunlight throughout the day. Everything is within walking distance...amazing restaurants, mini golf, salons, shopping, and the beach. You must catch the sunset every night!' (2014)

              'The house is in a very convenient location for everything...access to the Gulf, access to golf, dining and shopping. The swimming pool overlooks a beautiful backyard and a channel. The house is very clean and well organized. The kitchen has nice appliances and an assortment of quality pots and pans. All light fixtures are clearly labeled which is very helpful. The garage is spotless and everything is stored neatly. Fishing rods, tackle, bikes, beach chairs, a little wagon and more are all there and ready to use. All in all a great destination. We already have multiple weeks booked in the future. A big 'thank you' to Dawn and Dave for sharing their beautiful home!' (2014)

              'A wonderful home from home! The owners have thought of everything to make your holiday as relaxing and peaceful as possible. We had a great time at this well equipped house. It is exceptionally clean and very spacious. The pictures do not do it justice! We have visited Marco many times and rented several homes and this is the best so far. You are within walking distance of many good restaurants and shops. The beach is also an easy walk and all the gear you need is provided. My husband loved the pool table and I could watch him play while relaxing by the pool. Thanks for sharing your home with us, if only for a brief three weeks.' (2014)

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2011

              About the owner: We have been happily married for 27 years, and currently live in Houston, Texas. Dave is employed in Sales & Marketing for a major chemical company, and is an avid mountain climber, golfer and skier. Dawn is actively involved volunteering with Corridor Rescue, an animal rescue group in Houston (CorridorRescue.org).

              Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
              Although we are still a few years away from retirement, we love Marco Island and have decided to make the wonderful community our retirement home. We have always wanted to live in a home on the water with easy boat access to the ocean, and within walking distance to the beach and restaurants. This home truly has it all!
