About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Welcome to Paradise. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle, you've come to the right place. We offer an alternative to the impersonal hotel experience in a 2,000-square foot inland home on a quiet, neighborhood street near the Island Country Club. The public beaches are 1.25 miles away. There are no bright lights or noisy crowds to detract from your relaxing getaway.

Our philosophy is to encourage guests to take advantage of all the wonderful outdoor amenities on the island, from the beaches to fishing, sailing, kayaking, personal watercraft and more. The house is equipped with a heated pool, a spacious lanai with full-day sun exposure, cathedral ceilings, central heat and air, dishwasher, ceiling fans in all rooms, bar stools, patio furniture, beach chairs and toys, pool toys, tennis rackets, books, DVDs, board games, bicycles, a portable crib, piano, a pool safety gate and more. There are televisions in the main sitting area and the master bedroom.

Another important feature: the home is eco-friendly to minimize your exposure to toxic chemicals. The house was painted using low-VOC paint. There is no carpeting - it is all tile, from the floors to the kitchen countertop. We provide handmade soaps as well as chemical-free and environmentally-friendly products such as toilet paper, dishwashing detergent, dish and laundry soap.

We try to use and help local businesses as much as possible. The furniture includes handcrafted beds and tables from a woodworker in Missouri, our adopted home state (we lived on Marco full-time for several years).

Among our favorite activities are going to Marco Movies (which also serves dinner), eating at Summer Day Market for lunch, walking to the library and Mackle Park, visiting Goodland, a small fishing village, camping and playing at Collier-Seminole State Park just off the island, eating at Food and Thought in Naples, sunset dining at the beach hotels and of course, hitting the water(Weis Guy charter captain, Jodie Weis, lives right across the street).

Our friends and very nice neighbors remain on the island, so let us know if you want to get hooked up to local happenings.

Also, please ask about specials for two or more week stays during season and return visits. And let us know what we can include to make your family's vacation an even more memorable one.

About the owner: We lived on Marco full-time and like to return each year. The vacation rental allows us to do so while sharing this wonderful place with others.

The original owner built the home for her family and added many special details in tile work, placement of rooms, sliders and large windows.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our street is only one block long and has no traffic. The house has so many nice touches. It is designed after B&B's without the second 'B'.
