Wish we stayed 2 weeks!!!
"If I could've given more stars, I would have. This home is spectacular. Hands down, the best rental we have stayed in. Dave was so attentive to make sure we had everything we needed. He answered all of my questions in a few hours (and I had a lot since we hadn't been to Marco Island). To say this place is clean is an understatement. Spotless!!! We went on a family trip on Sunshine Tours and Capt Scott was great with our children. We even booked a second day we loved it so much. We went to Jungle Erv's Airboat Tours and saw alligators. We were back at the house and relaxing every afternoon. Tigertail beach is walking distance but we drove since we have 5 kids. Beach chairs, toys, wagon, beach towels ALL PROVIDED so you don't have to worry about packing that bulky stuff. Bed linen and bath towels are provided also and it was so nice to arrive and have all the beds made already. The pool is breathtaking. This home offered something for everyone. We vacationed with my sister and her family and there was plenty of space for us (4 Adults 9 kids). Whether reading a book poolside or watching the Little League World Series with our kids on the HUGE tv in the family room, we had a wonderful time. The kids played games at the huge dining room table and it was nice to see them off electronics and playing the old fashioned way we used to. We had a tough time saying good bye to this home. We have amazing family memories and beautiful pictures of our time on Marco Island.
Dave, you are a wonderful owner who loves his home. It was a pleasure renting from you. Your promptness to my emails was appreciated. I probably drove you crazy with my questions but you never let it show :) Thank you for sharing your home with us and helping us create memories that will last forever. We loved Marco Island"

"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.

"What can I say about this house? Well for a starter, it is much more than a ‘house’. It is most definitely a home. I have rented properties all over Europe and the US, and this by far was the most welcoming, warm house we have ever rented. The décor is colourful and inviting, the furniture is comfortable and in keeping with the feel of the house.
The kitchen is *very* well equipped if you feel like cooking whilst you are away – right down the small details like coffee filters / salt & pepper / cleaning equipment etc. being provided for your use.
Adjacent to the kitchen is the breakfast area which we used every day. Nothing better than starting the morning with a coffee overlooking the calm waterway at the rear of the house. In fact, the views are almost the best feature of the property. We were amazed when we first arrived and spent the first few hours of our stay sitting outside under the lanai just watching the water. It is so relaxing we ended up spending for more time outside than inside.
The bedrooms are equally welcoming. My wife and I had the master suite which has an enormous (by UK standards) double bed, AC, ceiling fan and direct access to the master bathroom. Again, all decorated in a very homely fashion. The other 2 bedrooms were used by my son & daughter. They loved staying here and have asked when we can return already!
Everything you could want is supplied. The garage is full of pool toys, floats, fishing equipment, beach chairs and even 3 bicycles. These small details make a massive difference to the comfort and convenience of your stay.
Many rental properties have nice pools, but how many properties have their own boat dock? Ok, we have no boat, but sitting out here early in the morning with my son, hopefully dangling some lines into the water is a memory I will treasure for a long time.
In terms of the booking process – the owner, Nhu Ha is an absolute pleasure to deal with. *Every* email was answered within hours despite the time difference between the UK and the US. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to any family, friends or colleagues. We have had one of the best weeks we have had in a long time.
Thank you Nhu Ha!"

"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."
