Recent Marco Island reviews

  • Peace & tranquility.

    "Situated at the end of a canal with long water views from the heated pool & lanai, this home is ideal for one couple or a family of seven. So quiet and peaceful just lazing in one of the rocking chairs on the lanai admiring the views. There were just the two of us but, because the master suite is self- contained and the property so well designed, we did not feel lost. Alternatively, there is more than enough room for seven occupants. The furnishings are of good quality and and the home is fully equipped with everything to ensure a great vacation. Locally owned & managed by a charming family who are on call in the unlikely event anything is needed. Well worth renting for both adults & children."

    "Beautiful home, well decorated and supplied. Everything worked as advertised. Very nice neighborhood to walk through on a 10 minute walk to Tigertail Beach. I would rent this house again for my next trip to Marco Island."

  • GREAT view and comfortable condo

    "My husband and I rented this condo for 2 weeks at the end of May. He and a "fishing buddy" went down the first week and I accompanied him the final 8 days. We had a wonderful visit. We spent most afternoons on the screened balcony with great views of the water. The fishing was excellent and the evening boat rides were even better. The Rose Marina is adjacent to Angler's Cove, so we were able to dock our boat within viewing distance of the condo. The complex is large and many units do not have a view. It is an end unit which provides a great deal of privacy and is conveniently located closest to the laundry room. Further, the Dolphin Tiki Bar (within complex and on the water) is lots of fun with great (and reasonable) food such as fish tacos, grouper sandwiches, and blue cheese burgers. There is also an excellent Italian resturant within short walking distance (I think "Angelos.") which has early-bird specials and freshly-prepared food. We ate there twice and would like to have gone back again. Also, you are not far from the infamous "Snook Inn" resturant which is an island favorite. We also discovered the "Lee Bee Fish Company" just about half a block further down which is a walk-up resturant with excellent (very fresh) fish and shrimp dinners. All in all, this condo is a great home-base for boaters with lots of activities nearby. And, don't forget a great beach is just minutes away. We had no problem finding parking and found lots of great shells. Finally, we had a great experience with the renter. We encountered no issues and she provided all necessary information long before our arrival. We hope to return again next year! Considering the trip down to Marco is nearly nine hours, that should say a great deal. "

  • 4th of July at Marco Island

    "My family and I had a great vacation at this lovely home. The pictures do not justly display how spacious and well maintained this home is, the kitchen is very well equipped with everything you can think of needing, plenty of towels and linen. Beds were all very comfortable and the bathrooms clean and in good conditions. I am a freak about cleanliness and this home definitely met my expectations. The pool and patio area is big and great for lounging. The house is very close to shopping, and the beach. We even took a day trip to near by Naples which was very nice and not too far away. Elizabeth, the owner, was very pleasant and fair to work with. She answered all our questions promptly. Ii would recommend this home to my friends and family. I know you will enjoy it as we did. "

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.
