Private Homes house description
Our family home being rented for the first time! This lovely ranch is located on a canal, with a two-story screened-in lanai, swimming pool with jacuzzi, outdoor bar with access to kitchen, full dock, and sliding doors that open to the lanai from great room, family room, master bedroom and front bedroom. The master suite is separate from the two guest bedrooms and has a dressing room, walk-in closet and private shower. There is custom tile throughout the home as well as the pool area, and the beautiful landscaping on the large lot provides flowers year-round. The extra-large dock is our sundeck, so you can hang out and watch the dolphins while tanning, or drop your kayak in the canal and paddle around the mangrove islands. We have lots of bicycles in the garage, beach chairs, umbrellas, toys, anything you need for a fun day in Marco. Top it off with a visit to one of the excellent restaurants, a movie, or maybe a sunset walk on the beach. Watch the moonrise from the lanai and enjoy a midnight swim in the pool. The possibilities are endless!

We had a wonderful stay in this house - everything we needed was there and the house was well kept and tons of room to spread out. Sitting on the dock by the canal was so peaceful and my husband was able to do some fishing from there.

Marco Island retreat
Marco Island retreat
This was by far the best rental experience I've ever had. Everything was as described if not better. The home was even more spacious than I imagined. The two sitting areas with the master bed/bath on one side of the house and the other bedrooms on the other side of the house with the dining room and kitchen in between allow for quiet in the mornings when some got up earlier than others. The doors to the pool allowed access from every room. The beds were super comfy, lots of towels. There was really nothing missing at all and we just loved the house layout and comfort and having our own private resort. This is perfect for a family or 2-3 couples, lots of space. Thank you Nancy for having us stay in your home.

Great Marco Retreat
Great Marco Retreat
We stayed in this lovely home for 3 weeks in March, and we wish it could have been longer. The location was absolutely top notch - close to everything on Marco and close enough to the Jolly Bridge, so traveling to Isles of Capri or Naples was a breeze. The house was clean and comfortable. The best part of this property was definitely the pool area and dock on the canal. Our day started with coffee on the lanai overlooking the pool and ended with happy hour on the dock watching the sunset - very peaceful and serene. Nancy was great to work with and was always quick to respond to any questions or concerns. By the end of our stay, she felt like a new friend. We would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for a great house in a great location on Marco Island.

Wonderful Family Home For Vacation
Wonderful Family Home For Vacation
We were honored to be the first in this lovely home. It was four of us and we found everything we needed to give us a delightful stay at Marco Heron House. The owner could not have been nicer, and answered quickly, all our phone calls to help answer questions. She truly went the extra mile to make sure our stay was nice. I would recommend this home, if you are looking for a place to relax in a beautiful pool and spa, watch the stars at night and enjoy all the sights that surrounded us. You will see water from every view in the home. Stepping into the living room you can see wildlife pretty much all day. In the early morn we stepped onto the deck and had breakfast and coffee with the sounds of Marco beautiful bird songs around us. The hawks swooped down and caught their breakfast from the canal. In the evenings we had dinner by the pool and watched as the sunset. Nancy, the owner, also recommended a new restaurant for us, Snook Inn in old Marco, and my gosh, it was heavenly seafood while dining by the water and listening to a very good gentleman, that sang. I recommend you try Marco Heron House and share in the experience of Marco Island as we did. Thank you Nancy, we will see you next year.

Year Purchased: 1985
About the owner: Hi, My name is Nancy Parsons and I live in Ann Arbor Michigan. I grew up in Rochester, MI, but then moved up north to beautiful Traverse City, where I spent 30 years teaching high school and raising my daughters. I've also been coming to Marco Island since the early 1980's, when my parents discovered this gorgeous island. My girls and their cousins grew up playing with the geckos, carousing in the pool, cruising in the boat, digging enormous holes in the beach, grilling with Grandma and Grandpa, watching the pelicans fish and picking hibiscus flowers while moms and dads enjoyed the outdoor bar, boating, dining and relaxing!
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
My parents bought this house after visiting Marco Island for many years. When they first came to see it, a Great Blue Heron welcomed them, stalking about as if he owned the place. Jerry, as he was named, allowed them to buy his home and it was subsequently named Heron House. My brothers and I, and eventually our children as well, have been coming here for the last twenty years. Unfortunately, our parents have passed away, and with their absence, Jerry quit coming around too. On my last visit, however, he came back and said hello! We have lots of other wildlife, however, especially living across from Sanctuary Bay, where flocks of heron, along with pelicans, egrets, ibis, and osprey land every evening to join the dolphins and manatee at play. After much thought, my family and I have decided to share our home with others, so they, too, could appreciate what a peaceful and fun place we have here, and our home will always be filled with laughter and warm memories in the making.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We feel that Heron House is extra-special because of its location, with the canal on one side and Sanctuary Sound on the other, providing a view from every room. It's in a quiet residential neighborhood, close to the beaches, restaurants and stores. There is light reflected off water throughout the house, and enough room for people to be together, or not to be together. Our pool is larger than average, our sunsets sublime.
