  • Everything and then some!

    "What a fantastic condo! Never have I been to a rental with so many amenities. The owners provide an extremely well stocked condo with just about everything from bicycles, golf clubs and tennis rackets to beach towels, chairs, and umbrellas. In addition, the kitchen was furnished with everything imaginable. The owners made the whole process so easy & I fact, I even consulted the owners on buying a place in the building! We will definitely rent this condo again"

  • Marco Island Marvel!

    "Accommodations were exactly as pictured & location couldn't be better. Nestled in a quiet, peaceful exclusive neighbourhood but convenient location to anything and everything you would want in Marco Island & Naples. Hosts ensured we had everything we needed & our guest house setting was private so we could enjoy the R & R we came for. Sweet courtyard pool to lounge by or enjoy a morning coffee or evening glass of wine or swim if you so chose. The boat dock was equally as quiet & peaceful in a beautiful setting & only manatees lazily basking in the sun were our company. The property is well maintained and there are even banana trees & orange trees ~ all bearing fruit! Comfortable cruising bicycles were also available & were a wonderful way to take in the island's neighbourhoods & canal streets with a gorgeous home & beautiful view around every corner. We encountered the occasional gopher turtles & burrowing owls on these biking adventures too. We are exploring future retirement ideas & I have to tell you ~ this area doesn't get much better. Thank you to Judy & Paul, who went way above & beyond welcoming us & sharing local information on the area for restaurants & interesting sight seeing adventures but also gave us the feeling we were the sole owners of the property for the week."

  • Wonderful Week!

    "Our family stayed the week of Thanksgiving 2014 and the home is as advertised. Extremely close to the beach access, which on Marco Beach, there are not many public access areas. It is a 5 minute or less walk to the sand itself or a 30 second bike ride. The home is very clean and spacious. There are quite a few beach necessities in the garage for use. The pool area is fantastic. Very nice patio furniture. The pool size is big compared to most Florida vacation home pools. We ate Turkey Dinner poolside and was a blast! Our family of five loved the place! Only suggestion we have is the family and living room furniture arrangement needs improved/additional TV up front."

Marco Island Travel Tips

Marco Island can be found in the Gulf of Mexico and is the biggest of Florida's "Ten Thousand Islands". With white, sandy beaches and a laid-back atmosphere, relaxation is certainly the name of the game. Enjoy the seemingly endless sunshine while you swim with dolphins, work on your tan, try some water sports or stroll the streets perusing shop windows.

The island itself is small, just 6 miles by 4 miles, but there's tons to do here. Marco Island boasts an excellent restaurant scene where you can sample fresh seafood and other local favorites in between exploring the natural scenery and checking out cultural attractions.

Things to Do on Marco Island

Dolphin Explorer: Dolphin and marine life lovers will certainly want to take a trip on the Dolphin Explorer, a 30-foot catamaran that can carry up to 28 passengers. This boat allows scientists and visitors to the island to get up close and personal with the Gulf's aquatic life. The Dolphin Explorer is used as part of a study called the Ten Thousand Island Dolphin Project looking at the movement, association patterns and behavior of Southwest Florida's bottlenose dolphins. Be part of the action with a trip out on the catamaran and be sure to bring your camera!

Marco Island Historical Museum: If you're hoping to find out about the history of Marco Island, look no further than the Marco Island Historical Museum where you can travel back more than one million years through various exhibits. Learn about the Calusa Indian tribe, the pioneer settlement and development on the island over the years. Peruse the photography, artifacts and more as you stroll through the space and gain a better understanding of what made Marco Island what it is today.

Marco Island Center for the Arts: Experience the culture of the area at the Marco Island Center for the Arts, which provides not only galleries and exhibits, but also offers lectures, classes, workshops and special events. The galleries change monthly and feature works from Floridian artists in a variety of mediums, including painting, sculpture and more. Currently the theme is Planes, Trains and Automobiles, and past galleries include Salon de Garage, Gold Madness, Fun and Funk Teapots and Picture the Music.

South Marco and Tigertail Beaches: Spending time on the local beaches is a must here, and South Marco Beach is an excellent option as it's one of two public beaches on the island. Here you'll find an acre of sandy shores dotted with lovely sabal palm trees, creating a true island feel. It's a great place if you're looking to collect seashells or want to take a swim. Tigertail is the more popular of the two beaches, as it features extra amenities including restrooms and a full-service snack bar. Tigertail is located on a lagoon so the water here is pretty shallow, making it excellent for families with smaller kids. Find the perfect spot of sand to stretch out your beach towel or take advantage of the beach chair and umbrella rentals. Whether you're swimming, sunbathing, catching up on reading or throwing a Frisbee, you'll have a great time. When you need a break from the sun, check out the adjacent butterfly gardens and children's playgrounds.There are even grills and picnic tables for a tasty lunch break.

Dining on Marco Island

Snook Inn: For more than 30 years, Snook Inn has been serving up delicious food while patrons enjoy true waterfront dining. You can drive in by boat or car as this casual eatery offers parking for both. Snook Inn is open seven days a week and on any given day you can enjoy live entertainment while sampling the mahi mahi, fried oysters, deep sea scallops, old-fashioned Reuben, barbecue pork sandwich and specialty drinks.

Sale e Pepe: For a more upscale dining experience, make a reservation at Sale e Pepe for some exquisite gourmet Italian fare. You'll feel like you've traveled to Italy once you step into the dining room outfitted with marble floors, hand-painted frescoes and aged stones. Chef Giuliano Matarese and his team cook everything from scratch every day. Try the pasta options, sea bass, rack of lamb or filet mignon, and be sure to pair it with a delicious wine. While it'll be easy to stuff yourself on the unbeatable main course, be sure to save room for dessert like chocolate mousse, tiramisu cheesecake or homemade gelato.
