  • Wonderful home for family gathering.

    "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!"

  • Rent and Relax !!!

    "We stayed a relaxing warm week in a well-appointed clean house located near everything. The kids loved the heated pool and being able to watch rented DVDs on the surround sound at night after sunsets. Grilled steak n shrimp, cold drinks, the pool, the beach, the sun, the bikes, and even the fresh donuts (key lime was a big hit) from the local 7-11 made this a great trip. The owner was FANTASTIC to work with -even on short notice- and with any questions we had once there. We will rent this again - if available. Shhhhh!!"

  • Amazing Property

    "My husband and I stayed here for the week with our teenage daughter and had an amazing time. The house was clean with plenty of extras such as beach towels, lilo and floats for the pool and the fishing rods which kept us amused for hours fishing off the dock out the back. We visited Marco island to relax and enjoy and that was exactly what this house did for us. Publix store is only a ten min walk away. My only complaint was having to come home! Thank you Bill and Sandy for letting us stay in your wonderful home"

  • 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."
