  • Super House

    "My wife and I stayed for 6 weeks over Christmas and New Year and were very sad to return home. The house is very spacious, furnished well in a comfortable, modern style and was spotless. The lanai is a great space and most of our meals were eaten outside even on Christmas Day! The pool seemed a little small but constrained by available space, so is narrow but long enough and deep enough for swimming. Access was easy for my wife, who has limited mobility. The house is well equipped in the kitchen, has plenty of bedding and towels, an excellent barbeque, and good HD TVs with digital recording capability. The house is central in Marco, handy to walk to the main shopping plaza and excellent farmers' market (every Wednesday). Though situated on a main road, the traffic noise was not obtrusive. The patio at the rear is quite private and not overlooked, though there are other houses backing on to the canal. Marco is a very quiet area, with quite strict noise regulations so if you have children, they will need a volume control! Great for us though. We found the rates for this house competitive against others in the region, particularly as tax and pool heating was included. Marco Island is a great holiday destination for house renters. Although it is completely developed, it is quiet with relatively low traffic levels, so getting to the many restaurants and shops is easy. Access to the super beach is restricted to a couple of access points (with $8 per day parking) and, with hindsight, we should have paid the $140 fee for a permit for the Residents' Beach (available with photo ID to anyone staying more than 1 month). However, Marco is also a great centre for boat trips (or rent your own), to visit wild life in the Everglades, shops, restaurants and beaches at Naples and Sanibel Island, and we even made a couple of trips up to Sarasota where the Ringling Museum was a must-see. Overall, we had a super time and happily recommend it."

  • Great vacation home

    "My wife and I had a very relaxing vacation. This home is close to shopping, restaurants, the beach, adventure trips, and pretty much anything you would want to do. My wife relaxed by the pool, while I took morning walks to the beach only a mile and a half away. Bikes are available in the garage, for those who prefer biking to walking. There are trips to the Everglades available, where the travel company will pick you up at the house. I would recommend this trip to individuals, or families, as it is a unique experience. The home was extremely clean, well furnished, and in a convenient location. There are great restaurants, and sports bars, where you can eat by the bay, only a blocks away. We had never been to Marco Island, and we found it to be just what we were looking for in a vacation. I would recommend this house, and Marco Island, to those looking for a wonderful vacation destination."

  • What more could we ask for? NOTHING!

    "This was our second time renting Gerri's house and once again, we weren't let down in any way! The house is just as advertised - no, it's better!! As someone traveling with small children, it's amazing to find a home that is also so child friendly. A pack and play, high chair, stroller, bikes, toys, pool guard - they do have it all. The house itself is wonderful and has everything you could need, including almost any pantry/kitchen staple you can think of. We love how helpful Gerri is, both before arrival and during our stay. We've already inquired about our third visit. Snatch this house up quickly - you won't want to go back home!"

  • Gorgeous home, great location

    "This house was beautiful. Very tastefully decorated with high end furnishings. The house is exactly like the pictures, no surprises. The lanai furniture and deck furniture were very comfortable and felt like a resort. My husband and I took morning bike rides and my teenage daughters used them in the evening to go shopping or grab a treat. Everyone fished off the dock and caught something. We saw dolphins swim by one night and a few stingrays another day. The only difficulty we had was getting the stereo to the outside speakers. Once we figured it out, we were unable to adjust the volume. This was a minor detail though as everything else was exquisite. Betsy was easy to reach and responded immediately to any questions. We felt like we were at our home away from home. We love Marco Island and can't wait to come back and will definitely rent this home again."
