About Tom & Elizabeth Rensch

Visit our Face Book Page at: "Marco Island Paradise Found"

Elizabeth and I met and live in Alaska and have been visiting Marco for 25 years. We have two wonderful sons Brad and Ian and 5 beautiful grandchildren, Gus, Henry, Lucy, Oliver, and Author. For the past 25 years during the cold Alaskan winters we have vacationed on Marco, and for many years dreamed of having our own little slice of Paradise here. Our dream has finally come true! In Alaska we enjoy fishing, boating, and hiking in - the 'Last Frontier'. We are surrounded by spectacular mountains, glaciers, rivers, ocean and wildlife. We feel incredibly blessed by all that we share in life, particularly each other and our family. We sincerely hope you come to 'Paradise Found' on Marco to share our home and come back often.

Loved Our Stay in Marco Island

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Paradise Found! The week went by way to fast. The house has everything you need and more. The location was perfect whether you prefer the beach or the pool. Watching the dolphins on morning walks and the sunsets at night really make it hard to leave.

Nice hangout, nice people

  • 5 of 5

Tom and Elizabeth,

Thanks so much for sharing your home in Marco. We were comfortable starting day one. The pool was great, the beach was close by, and everything we needed for our stay was right at hand. Appreciate the way you were so responsive from the time we first considered renting, to the checkout at the end of our stay!

Anyone looking for a great place to stay in the Marco/Naples area should check out this home. We recommend it without hesitation!

Perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this quiet, very private and peaceful home. It is the most well equipped and stocked house we've ever been to and we couldn't have asked for anything better than that. The bikes were new and very comfortable, just perfect for those of us who do not like 20 speed racers which put pressure on wrists and backs. Beach chairs (many - very comfortable as well), coolers (all different sizes), wagons, etc. were all in great shape. Most other homes offer these essentials but not as well kept or as desirable and this home leaves nothing to be desired. Just a few blocks to the beautiful beach, amazing sunsets, shopping, restaurants and churches. It has everything! And you won't find a better price.

Tom is a very concerned host and was on top of everything when it came to the few issues we had upon arriving and they were resolved within a day. Thank you Tom for your quick response.

The only down side for us was the fact the screens haven't been repaired yet and due to the hurricane everyone is on a waiting list. We could not sit comfortably by the pool at night because the bugs were relentless....even with bug spray.

We would certainly return to Paradise Found.

Owner's Response: Thanks Nancy, After Hurricane Irma it's been difficult for any maintenance to get done in a timely manner. Actually I've found screen in Alaska and will be installing myself when I get down there in the next couple of weeks. Thanks for all your help and understanding during your stay at Paradise Found! Tom

Paradise was found

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family. My wife, parents, and 2 little boys. (One 2 months old, the other 2 years old). Cleanliness was top notch and Tom and Elizabeth really shared their home with us. They had everything we needed and to make things even better, Tom called a few times to check in and see how we were doing. We did have one issue where the pool was cold and I emailed Tom. 2 hours went by or so, and he called the house. He already had the pool guy scheduled to come out and make the repair the following morning. And those are the kinds of things you'll want when booking on VRBO. Tom handled it promptly and my little boy was swimming comfortably in 86 degree water in no time. 5 stars for this family and we would not hesitate to rent from Tom and Elizabeth again. Thank you so much guys! Trust the reviews.

Honeymoon stay

  • 5 of 5

This home is exactly what we were looking for in a getaway. Close to the beautiful beach with terrific sunsets. Great restaurants and shopping. The home was immaculate and we had everything we needed. The weather was terrific all week, the people were friendly. We ate at some of the establishments Tom recommended and were not disappointed. This home gets 5 stars!
