LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!! This beautiful well maintained 3 bedroom/2 bath home is located a short walk to the beach, restaurants, shopping, movie theatre, ice cream parlor, mini golf and luxury resort spas. Nestled on a quiet street, it has sought after Southern exposure for both the heated pool and the canal waterfront.
Let’s talk about the back yard! Relax and enjoy our private heated salt-water pool or try your luck at fishing off the dock in the back yard canal. Bring your camera- the manatee play inches from you as they often gather in front of our dock! We have bikes, fishing poles, Wi-Fi, a pool table, DVD’s, board games, pool toys, beach chairs, beach towels, books, High Definition large flat screen TV and TV’s in every bedroom! Not to mention a washer and dryer for all that beach gear.
You can easily depart from our dock and be in the Gulf of Mexico within 10 minutes – no bridges – direct access! Rent paddleboards, kayaks or jet skis and explore the canals and bay- even launch right from the dock in the back yard.
The salt-water swimming pool is kept heated to perfection inside a screened lanai with chaise lounges, a dining table with seating for 6, pool toys and a gas grill. Salt-water pools have lower chlorine levels to be gentler on eyes and skin. Soft skin and heated pool water – ahhhh, you may need to extend another week!
Have you been inside yet? The remodeled kitchen is fully equipped with stainless appliances including refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, garbage disposal, toaster and coffee maker. Enjoy a meal on the granite breakfast bar or dine in the separate dining area.
The three bedrooms (one king size bed, one queen, and two twins) sleep six guests comfortably. In addition there is a full sized pull out couch in the family room. All towels and linens are provided. Both bathrooms have been remodeled with new tile and granite countertops (one with shower, one with shower/tub combo).
This well appointed home boasts tile throughout, with an open floor plan. Stack the rack and enjoy a game of pool, or unwind with your favorite movie on the large HDTV flat screen TV.
In case you are new to Marco a Welcome Binder greets you when you arrive. It includes useful information to make your vacation the best ever. You won’t miss anything with sightseeing, shopping and restaurants info PLUS recommendations from past vacationers about their favorite activities- we can’t wait to read your suggestions too!
We love our new home and we are sure you will too!
Reviews When we purchased this home in August 2014, it had 29 VRBO and Homeaway reviews here is a summary of some of the comments:
“Fabulous home with great location and amenities.”
“Short walk to beach and close to many restaurants.”
“Very family friendly with nice backyard pool and fishing from the dock.”
“Although the pictures are very nice, better than expected. Definitely would go back.”
“We were able to swim in the large pool while the men caught fish from the dock.”
This is just a few of the many.
And lastly: If our home is booked, please consider another 5 star Marco Island home, which is located directly across the canal (VRBO #373606 – HomeAway #908223). For families or friends vacationing together renting both homes could be the ideal situation!

About the owner: Dan and I love Marco Island and look forward to spending our retirement on the island.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes: We wanted a home on Marco Island where you can walk to the beach. We were so excited when we found this home - it had everything for the perfect vacation - heated pool, pool table, waterfront, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, washer and dryer, bikes and fishing poles in the garage.
