Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Our family has always had a home in Florida somewhere. My grandparents had a hotel on the east coast when I was a kid. We have always enjoyed Florida so much. My husband and I began to visit Marco Island, and we fell in love with the place! We looked for a home for over 2 years before we found the perfect spot. We were very picky about the location, and the placement of the home on the lot. The home was a TON of work to remodel, but we are so happy with the way it turned out.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
This home is in the perfect spot on Marco Island. It is across the street from Esplanade where there is a Starbucks and other restaurants and shopping. Just the perfect distance for a quick morning walk to grab a coffee. You can rent a home on the water and if it faces the wrong direction - you won't have sun at your pool or in your windows. This home is perfectly positioned. It has all the best of everything you could want in a vacation home.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have many large screen TVs in the home, and Wi-Fi too. We also have bikes to ride around the island. This property is so perfectly positioned to be able to walk to just about any place you could want to go! We have a beach wagon and chairs for your enjoyment. It is hard to see in the photos, but there are 5 sets of sliding glass doors that go out to the water. The 2 sets from the family room and living room to the lanai are 'pocket doors' - so they totally go into the wall and the entire area opens up to the outdoors. It is spectacular and makes the living space huge and open.
