"We spent a wonderful week at this beautiful home! The home is very spacious with the master bedroom, large bath and walk-in closet on one end and the other bedrooms on the other. The home is very clean and they supplied everything we needed. The owners were very accommodating with our every need. We would definitely recommend this home! Thanks Bill!"

"We stayed at this house for two weeks during September 2015 and all and all we were very pleased. Were two adults and sometimes 2 and sometimes 3 teenagers, and there was plenty of space for everyone. The house and surrounding area was very clean.
The pool area / Jacuzzi / patio area is fabulous, and the outdoor grill is top notch. The two essentials - wireless and central AC - were flawless. Another nice feature is that the stereo is wired for different zones in the house – kitchen, patio, living room, etc. - so bring a Y cable and you can enjoy your favorite sounds inside and out. The dock area is also very nice - we fished off the dock. and saw a dolphin swimming in the back bay!
The house and appliances are a bit aged and showing signs of normal wear and tear here and there, and the kitchen is not equipped for foodies - bring your own knives and favorite tools. On the other hand, and as another reviewer noted, there is plenty of quality plastic-ware which is very convenient for drinks and snacks in the patio, adjacent to the pool.
Communications with the owner were sometimes difficult before we arrived due to technical problems. All in all things worked out just fine. If I could rate this house a 4.5 stars I would. We were very pleased, would seriously consider renting this house again when in the Marco area, feel it was a great value for the amount we paid, and would recommend this house to others.

"Enjoyed this house all week with my wife, daughter, son-in-law and 2 young grandchildren. No carpeting to worry about spills, big plus with little ones! Loved the pool and the spa, big hit with the kids. There are only 2 public entrances to Marco's beaches, and this house is a 5 minute walk to one of them, a huge plus, especially for that last minute run to beach to catch the sunset. The owners have really kept the renters in mind with all of the toys, games, bikes, ping-pong table. Bottle of champagne in the refrigerator and all of our names spelled out on the refrigerator to welcome us! And of course a personal tour by the very proud owner Pat. We loved the place. Also in walking distance of several restaurants, shopping and the only movie theater on the island. And, there is a 7-11 around the corner for a quick cup of coffee, a beer run, or if you just ran out of milk."

"We had a family summer vacation at this property. Our group consisted of 7: 2 couples, 1 single young woman, 1 teenager and 1 child. The house accommodated all of us with plenty of room. The access out to the Gulf was perfect and not too long. We were able to bring our boat and keep it in the back for our daily outings. The pool was nice and we enjoyed fishing from the back deck. We enjoyed cooking in the well appointed kitchen and also enjoyed being able to go out to dinner to many different choices. The Publix down the street was perfect. A couple of minor upkeep items were reported to the management but they in no way interfered with our stay, more of an aesthetic issue."
