My brother, Jim, told me that if you pick a name like that, your looking for trouble. He also said that 'You better be able to back that up with a home that has tons of 'Wow' factor.' Well, I think we have that covered. As you read on I am sure you will come to agree that there is no other house on Marco Island (or anywhere else we know of), that combines this unique blend of charm, luxury, attention to detail and sheer elegance into any residence, much less one that you can make your own as you create your very own 'Marco Magical' vacation memories to cherish for years to come.

Royalty applies a concept of 'Scaling' the bed/bath configuration of make it affordable for smaller groups. Basic rates (quoted in the rate section) are based on the home being rented as a 4 bed, 4 bath configuration to 8 people or less. This home can be scaled up to a 6 bedroom, 4 1/2 bathroom home with inflatable mattress in the playroom to support sleeping for 14 total.

First, lets talk about location. the words 'Yeah....we got that!!!'immediately leap to my mind. Royalty is located adjacent to Leigh Plumber park. Leigh Plumber is a wonderful, passive park (no noisy sports stuff going on), with a duck pond and walking path. We especially like bringing bread over to feed the duckies and geese that call the park their home for much of the year

Royalty is majestically situated on a quiet Col-de-sac on the North side of the island just minutes drive to the Judge Jolly bridge. The central nature of Royalties location makes trips to shopping on Collier and San Marco a snap. Tiger Tail beach, with it warm white sand, tropical breeze and majestic views is just a short drive either by car or bicycle. The 'Out' to Marco River by water is about 6-8 minutes. Having built several times on Marco previously, we knew how to attend to every detail a discerning renter looks for. These details were integrated into a smooth, free flowing design.

Let me share with you a little bit of the process we went through, as I believe the pictures speak best to the result. First, we took what in my opinion, one of the nicest waterfront lots on the island. A huge factor was that this lot offered loads of waterfront viewing opportunity. We have front and rear waterfront views from both the first and second floors. These are not just a typical 'Cross Canal' views. Royalty's back looks down the canal toward the west allowing for your enjoyment of Marco's incredible sunsets while you bask in the pool or spa. Of course we have a dock (actually 2) and 2 wave runner lifts (bring you own waver runner).

Another key learning we applied was that size really does matter when it comes to a Vacation home. People want space to spread out and enjoy themselves. Even small parties like the ability to explore different areas in a home and seek out the place they feel most comfortable.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: Allow me to introduce myself and my family to you. I (Paul) am in my mid 40's and work for a Fortune 100 Company in the Information Technology field. Until August of 2002, we lived in Rockaway, New Jersey, a small town in Morris County. In August 2002, we moved the family to Marco Island. My family and I came to Marco Island for the first time in December 1998 and immediately fell in love with its peacefulness and beauty. By the time we had left, we had made offers on several of the premier lots. By mid January 1999, we had purchased a wonderful waterfront lot and began looking at builders for our ultimate 'Dream Home'. We built a wonderful 4 bedroom, 2 bath home which we called Serenity. Our plan for Serenity was as a 'Vacation Home' initially. Then a friend suggested we rent her to other families when we were not able to enjoy her ourselves. I, of course, being a bit of a Techie decided to Learn how to Publish on the WWW and build web pages. I was amazed at how little information people were providing about their rental homes and created my web site, www.marcomagic.com as a place to provided 'Full Disclosure'. I also spent some time learning how 'Web' marketing worked for vacation homes. Well demand for Serenity in 2000 proved so strong that we added Seacrest so that we could offer people a 'Short Walk to the Beach' home that had many of the features people were looking for. Serenity was an incredible home, which we sold in 2007 when we completed building even a more fantastic home called Royalty. Royalty was really build for our family to live in, but given the beginning of the economic decline, we decided to maintain a less extravagant lifestyle. The resulting home, however, was everything we could envision someone wanting. It was a painstaking process that required daily care and monitoring. Royalty took almost two years to complete. Personally, I feel the result was well worth it.

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                      Royalty has everything...space, warmth, splendor...and Quality. We have a wide water view, a great location when going anywhere on or off Marco....and it was built as my DREAM HOME....so I spared no expense.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Table and chairs in the pool (yes in the pool)...and park right outside...amazing water views...and a very quiet location from which to explore Marco Island
