"Out of all of the places I have ever rented in Florida , this has to be the absolute best! When we weren't at the beach we were in the pool or on the Teenis court .there was always something fun to do. I do recommend this house to others . It comes with everything . Literally.From spices to plates , forks , and knifes this place had it all . It's also very kid friendly , my 3 year old granddaughter enjoyed the pool very much and if you enjoy sports there also a basketball goal on the teenis court .my friends went with us and it was there first time in Florida and they fell in love with the place. The house also included hot tube and some bikes. I can't wait to go to Florida again , this place was definitely worth my money."

"My wife and I stayed a week in this beautiful home. The home is comfortable and well laid out. The master bed and bath are located on the opposite end of the house from the other bedrooms. This is a great set up for parents with children. The beds are so comfortable you may have a difficult time getting out. The beach is 1/4 to 1/3 away, so it is within walking distance. The wife loved the neighborhood to walk in. The kitchen is laid out nicely to cook in. The grill on the lanai works well. The furniture in the living room is oversized and invites you to relax. There are enough pots, pans, dishes, and utensils to feed a large family. Having two refrigerators is nice should you are staying a long time. The home is quiet and calming. Suffering from a disability I found the house easy to walk through.
The garage has beach carts, beach umbrellas, and chairs for your enjoyment.
The owners/managers of the home are cordial and easy to deal with. It is nice to deal with people who open their home for other people to enjoy as they would. I think the nicest thing to say is thank you for opening your hone to my wife and I. Thank you for your hospitality."

"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!"

"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"
