Home Away From Home
"Typically we do not post reviews but this home is well worth the time. We were looking for a property to rent on the island that would accommodate our need of accepting dogs as they are part of our family and it was a family vacation. We are so happy we found this property and Joan’s willingness to accommodate and understanding of our need. Turns out the home was much more than we expected and had numerous plus’. Home is conveniently located on the island on a quiet court. There was plenty of room in and out for us all. We enjoyed relaxing and soaking up the sun in the pool and on the large lanai. The ceiling fans on the lanai added air movement for us and the dogs so they could join and relax as well during the heat of August. Backing to the golf course helped keep with the quietness. It also gave us the ease for “family” walks on the golf course after hours. The kitchen is well laid out and accessible from the lania. The home is not only people friendly but dog friendly as well. Beds were very comfortable. A huge thank you to Joan for working with us on our needs and allowing us to rent their beautiful home. We hope the opportunity arises to visit Marco Island again and we will definitely be contacting Joan!"

"We've been renting on Marco annually for 10+ years now. We have seen the good, the bad and the ugly and we can honestly say that this was the best by far; truly exceptional. The house is *absolutely gorgeous*, like brand new. The layout is fantastic and the amenities are wonderful. Normally we have to buy something to help complete the house, not the case here. Not only were the amenities plentiful, they were first class; not the typical hodge podge of left over items from other houses and renters.
We own our own business, so we not only know what is expected, but what it takes to satisfy expectations. This being said, satisfaction is not measured as much when everything goes right, but when something goes wrong. Yes, something went wrong, as the house had something of a lightning strike a few days before our arrival. Obviously this was an act of nature, but not only did they inform us ahead of time, they worked diligently to make sure that almost all of the repairs (new AC unit, pool equipment, etc.) were completed before our arrival.
Our interaction with Jay, the local contact, was very refreshing. He was genuinely concerned and caring.
We will definitely be back!"

"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!"

"Cannot add anything new to the other top reviews. Paradise Found says it all. Accurate description, excellent facilities and attentive owners.
Would recommend this property to anybody looking for a taste of paradise.
Thanks Tom and Elizabeth."
