This 2013 built 3BR, 2.5Bth home was custom designed with vacation living in mind. It is located in an ideal vibrant neighborhood for vacationers, just steps from the white sands of the crescent beach of Marco Island, not to mention a wide choice of fantastic restaurants, a four screen dine-in movie theater, ice cream parlor, shops, the Marco Island Art League, outdoor adventure rentals, miniature golf, as well as the many other entertainment options that Marco Island has to offer.
The heart of the home is an open great room with a 60in flatscreen TV, granite and stainless steel kitchen opening onto the covered lanai and screened-in heated pool. The interior design lends an atmosphere of casual beach side elegance, achieved by using colors inspired from the sea and beach, using a mix of new and vintage pieces, and adding a collection of one-of-a-kind artwork from local celebrated artists that only adds to the relaxed tropical vibe.
The master bedroom has a king sized bed, a flat screen TV, and an en suite bathroom with dual sinks, a walk in shower, and a soaker tub. There are two guest bedrooms: one with a queen sized bed, and the other with a set of twins. Both bedrooms have flat screen TVs, and share a bathroom with a standup shower. Cable and Wi-Fi available. BluRay DVD players are in the Living Room and the twin bedroom.
Along with ample pool towels, we supply beach equipment such as a cooler, chairs, umbrella and beach cart. Our screened in pool has a 3 burner Weber Genesis grill for outdoor cooking.
One of the best features of our rental home is that it is managed by the best rental team on Marco Island. They assist the renter throughout the entire process, ensuring that everything goes smoothly, and in the event that a problem does arise, they are nearby to rectify any possible glitch.
PLEASE NOTE THAT A POOL HEATING FEE OF $40/WEEK WILL BE ADDED TO ALL RENTALS OCTOBER THROUGH THE END OF APRIL!!!
Please note that our house is rented out on a weekly basis, with arrivals and departures on Saturdays.

Year Purchased: 2013
About: The owners have been visiting Marco Island since 1994 and enjoying their walks on the beach every morning. After years of planning, from their New England home base, they have finally realized their dream of building a home within a very short walking distance to the beach and are happy to share their dream vacation home with others.
Why Private Homes: After searching homes that were available on the island, the owners decided to build a custom home with a wide open floor plan that feels more like a luxury hotel suite than a traditional home. There is plenty of room for the whole family to be together whether you are in the kitchen, dining room, family room or covered lanai. And with the L shaped floorplan, the design also easily allows for privacy for the master suite from the other bedrooms.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The proximity to Marco Walk shopping center allows you to park the car and forget about it. You have a wide choice of restaurants and activities that are literally just steps away from the Villa. While the home is near to the shopping center, there is extensive lush tropical landscaping to help buffer views and provide privacy, while waterfalls in the pool, the thick high impact hurricane windows and solid cement block construction assist in keeping exterior noise to a minimum.
