  • Our Favorite Vacation!

    "We stayed in this condo Dec 2014 and walked on a beautiful beach Christmas day. We found the condo to be very nice, clean and efficiently arranged. Everything we needed was supplied in perfect condition. The linens, towels and cookware is high quality. The grounds and pool is immaculetely maintained. We enjoyed walking to the beach daily and the pool is really nice. The condo staff is courteous and helpful and the people we met were friendly. This location is perfect for biking and walking, the sidewalks are very wide."

  • Great Marco Home

    "This home is great!! It comes with everything you need especially with many children as we do. It even has a pantry full of things I never thought of needing. You can walk, bike or drive to the beach.And the home comes with movies and books from cartoons to romantic movies. Love the nest of burrowing owls on the side of the home, what a treat. And the weather was great, especially when you come from Minnesota!!! Can not wait to come again!!"

  • Long Weekend Wedding Stay

    "This is an excellent choice if you are attending a function at the Marriot Resort across the street. It was also convenient to be directly across from the beach access. Jim was very attentive and the place was clean and very very well stocked ! The only issue we had was a mis-communication about the late check out causing us to scramble out on our final day. Still, we would recommend it to anyone."

  • Great Family Vacation Home!

    "My extended family and I stayed at this property for 5 days in early January. It was absolutely perfect for our needs!!! Our group was comprised of my parents (in their 60s), my brothers, myself and our significant others (in our 20s-30s) and two grandchildren (both below 2). Everyone had an absolutely amazing time! The house is well maintained, has everything you will need for a home away from home and is also wonderfully located. I also found the owner and her brother Jay very responsive and easy to communicate with! We can't wait to come back again next year!!!"

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.
