Comfortable, relaxing, upgraded home
"My family of 5 had a great time staying at this property. This was our first time renting a home for vacation and we were not sure what to expect. We've been disappointed with the difference between photos and the actual experience at several resorts in the past; so, the opportunity for disappointment seemed pretty great renting a home. We were pleasantly surprised. This house is not only clean and comfortable but pretty well maintained too.
The furnishings are comfortable and attractive both inside and out. The only negative is the TVs remotes have been messed with so much by renters, they are not set up correctly and make operating a little difficult.
We enjoyed sitting out on the dock fishing - there are poles in the garage. One evening there was a manatee and her calf visiting in the canal.
We agonized over selecting a home because the way every home's pictures are taken makes it hard to determine pool size. This pool is very large, clean and has lighting for night. The far end seems like it's 6 ft deep. My kids loved it and only got out of the pool to go to the beach and to eat.
Be sure to check out Sami's Pizza and MichelBob's BBQ - open from 5PM to 8PM and pick up only - both are really good.
We liked Marco South Beach better than Tigertail. Marco South is warm, sandy and full of shells. You have to walk a very long distance on Tigertail to get to the sandy beach portion but after you get there it's nearly secluded.
As you come into the neighborhood there are little chained off areas in home lots have an interesting population of Burrowing Owls.
We had a great vacation, hope to return next summer and definitely recommend this home."

"The layout of the house is wonderful. There is a ton of space and very its well kept. The location is perfect for walking to the beach for the day or just to see sunset. We enjoyed fishing off the dock and even got to see dolphins in the canal. The owner is wonderful to work with and always answers your questions in a timely manner. This was our third trip to Marco Island and we found the absolute perfect home to rent. If you want a wonderful vacation experience, rent this house. We can't wait to come back again."

"Our family decided to try something different for Christmas, a get away. We rented this lovely home on Marco island, where it would be warmer and near the beach. From the start it was the best experience I have had renting on VRBO. The owners were prompt and answered all my questions. The house has a dated decor which I knew from the pics. However it was clean, comfortable, spacious and perfect for our holiday gathering. I loved the open concept with the spacious sun/dinning room, living room and kitchen that allowed us all to be together. Yet there were small seating areas that allowed for quiet conversations. We had 2 dogs and 8 people staying there ranging from 4 yo to 82 yo and never once did we feel crowded!
The heated pool and Lanai were great. My 4yo granddaughter spent 5 hours straight, in the pool, only getting out to use the restroom, then right back in! We gathered there in the afternoons to enjoy each other and the sunsets. We loved having our morning coffee on the Lanai. The views of the canal were relaxing and peaceful.
The master bedroom was spacious and the bed was very comfortable. Everyone else enjoyed their rooms too.
We loved how close Publix was to the house for our shopping needs. The location makes for easy access to anywhere you want to go on the island or off.
On a few occasions during our stay, we called the owners with questions. Never once did they seem to mind, even though it was during the holidays. They always got right back to us and were most helpful. It almost felt like we were renting from our friends. The house came equipped with bicycles, which did not get used as often as we thought, but it was wonderful having them.
We had a wonderful Christmas vacation at this home away from home. The fact that we could bring our 2 little fur babies with us, meant that no one in our family was left out of the fun! I would highly recommend a visit to this comfortable and spacious home. The owners were very accommodating and easy to work with. I would love to have the opportunity to come back again and pray that it is in my future!"

"We had a wonderful vacation, thanks to Bill & Sandy renting us their home on Abbeville. The home is lovely and has everything you need to cook if you choose not to go out to eat. Well equipped with towels, beach chairs, etc... We spent most of our time lounging by the pool and the hot tub was a nice option. With it being June, we didn't use the hot tub much but it very roomy and comfortable.
The sunset views were amazing and grocery stores, shops, restaurants, etc...are all close by. I've been to Marco Island several times and am already looking forward to my next trip!
We loved it here!"
