Private Homes house description

Free Wi-Fi .... Large screen tv ... Video Library .. Walking distance to beach, stores and restaurants ..

... "we were "Wowed." Our first impression of this house was wonderful! Everything was very clean and perfect inside. There was plenty of room! The kitchen had everything you could need and the grill was a perfect addition. The beach was within walking distance and was very beautiful and clean" (Mike & Juliette)

Looking for a peaceful, quiet, private vacation home? Welcome to our family home. Enjoy the privacy of your own large enclosed lanai with heated pool surrounded by lush tropical plants in a quiet residential neighborhood which is only minutes from the beach,just 3 blocks.

We have an electric grill, a 2 car garage for your use and a home that is very well kept. In fact it is in fabulous condition (or so we've been told). We have fine architectural details and lines. A year-round vacation destination. We don't back up to condos or tennis courts. ** Just read our reviews which, by the way were unsolicited. (additional pictures are available)

This 2000 sq. ft home is very open and spacious with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, custom ceramic tile, soaring cathedral ceiling throughout. Our private, completely new, dual heat pool is surrounded by our brand new paver patio. Pool has a southern exposure affording all day sunshine and both pool and lanai are completely screened-in. Home has central air, ceiling fans in every room, freshly painted, upgraded appliances, pool toys and all the amenities of home to make your stay comfortable and easy. The master bedroom has a large separate shower, 2-person soaking tub and an extended walk-in closet.

I am an extremely 'anal' individual which, for you, means a very clean and color coordinated home. I take as much care of my vacation home as I do my family home. I expect only the best service from my property manager who is located only blocks from this home and is available for any questions you may have and is an excellent island resource.

We have just furnished the home with all new linens, bedding, pillows, comforters and towels. Kitchen is fully furnished with updated appliances and also includes an eat-in kitchen which can accommodate up to 6 people. Our large lanai also has seating to accommodate 6 for dinner. There is also available brand new full size washer and dryer in a separate room in the home off the garage. Home has been entirely repainted.

To keep the kids and adults occupied we have games and toys available.

The master bedroom is furnished with cable TV, DVD player, king size bed and has its own private bathroom. Bedroom #2 has 2 twin beds, and bedroom #3 has a queen bed with cable TV and VCR. Each bedroom has its own large closet. There is also cable TV and DVD player in the family room. Located near the South end of Marco Island you are a very short walk to one of the two public accesses on Marco. Most homes advertise their close proximity to the beach. However, it is of little importance if you are not close to the public access. Mackle Park is 1.5 miles away and offers a brand new playground for your kids. There is also a path around the lake for runners, walkers and skateboarders.

We are just one block from great shopping, wonderful restaurants, movie theatre, convenience store and gift shops. Close to grocery stores ( grill at home if you choose), immediate care center with wonderful pediatric staff and pharmacy all located on the island close to home. Contact information is available at the home. Other activities in the area include parasailing, jet skiing, boating, deep sea fishing, and golfing.

We have been told by many that we couldn't have chosen a better location for our home. I am very confident that you won't find a better value for your money on the island. One pet only allowed for long-term rentals (30+ days)
