You’re coming to Marco Island for the sunshine. Make sure you can enjoy it!

When you’re contemplating which property to rent on Marco, pay close attention to the pool area. Is the pool large enough for your group to enjoy? Does the pool get sunshine throughout the day? Are there sufficient lounge chairs and multiple seating areas outdoors for everyone? Is there room to move furniture around to catch the sun? Given that most people come to Marco for the sunshine, you’d be surprised how many places don’t offer these things. Many of our guests comment that they came for the beautiful beaches, but find they rarely leave. Why should they? Our pool area faces the 'all important' south direction for maximum sunshine throughout the day and is one of the largest private pools on the island. We have enough outdoor lounge chairs & tables for large groups to relax around the large 20x40 foot, heated, in-ground pool.

The unique layout of our home offers more privacy (and quiet) than other homes which is important if you're on vacation. Our 4 bdrm/4.5 bath home is located at the end of a peaceful cul de sac. The unique layout of our air-conditioned home with 3 different buildings in an L-shape design (all under one roof) built around the pool provides extra space and privacy for guests. The main building has the living room, formal dining room, modern kitchen and breakfast bar, Master King bedroom & bath. The second building has 3 bedrooms (Another Master King, a queen & the Upstairs room has a queen bed and 2 single beds) with 2 more bathrooms. The 3rd building consists of another bathroom, laundry & garage. This stand-alone extra bathroom is great for those that want to get up early (maybe to go for a morning walk/run or escape to Starbucks) and not disturb other late sleepers. The house has been recently redecorated and updated with new furniture and and all new flooring. It is located less than 5 minutes away from the main shopping area and 47 places to eat including the famous Snook Inn and other excellent restaurants.

The estate sits on a large 1/3 acre lot and has 260 feet of waterfront frontage! (Something very rare for a rental property.) The house has 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms and a large 20x40 foot in-ground pool, (typical pools are 12 x 24 feet), that is electrically heated.

Please read on for more details. We also encourage you to email us first with any questions prior to making a reservation request. (Fees are non-refundable after a reservation request has been made.)

LAYOUT OF HOUSE DESCRIPTION

The layout of the house is fantastic with 3 different buildings in an L-shape design (all under one roof) built around the pool.

MAIN BUILDING

The main building has the living room, formal dining room, modern kitchen, the master bedroom and modern bathroom. The living room has a large 50-inch, flat screen television with DVD player. One of the walls in the living room is all patio doors that overlooks the pool area so people can sit in the living room and visit (or watch TV) while still being able to keep an eye on people in the pool area. There are 3 new sofas so there is plenty of places to sit. The dining room has a formal dining table and 10 chairs. The kitchen has beautiful cabinets with soft-closing hardware and all the amenities including a microwave, refrigerator with ice maker, dishwasher and coffee maker. The kitchen is fully stocked with flatware, pots & pans etc. The bedroom in this building has a King-size bed, TV and modern bathroom with walk-in shower. Linens are included for all beds and there are beach towels as well. Every bedroom has at least a 20' remote controlled TV with cable and some have DVD players.

SECOND BUILDING

The second building has 3 bedrooms (Master King suite with separate vanity and dressing area, a Queen suite with separate vanity, and the upstairs bedroom which has a Queen bed and 2 twin beds in the same room). This building also has 2 more bathrooms. Every bedroom has an entrance to a bathroom.

THIRD BUILDING

The third building consists of the pool changing room, another full bathroom & shower, the laundry room (which is nice because it's away from all the sleeping areas) and the garage. The bathroom is located near the pool so people don't have to run inside the house while they're wet. This bathroom is popular for those that like to get up early and not disturb other late sleepers or for runners that want to get their early morning run in and come back and shower while others are sleeping.

POOL & DECK

The large, 40 foot long in-ground pool, is heated by both a solar cover and a heater. The pool sits on the south side of the house so the sun is shining on the area for most of the day (perfect for sun bathing). The large, 1,000 square foot deck was heavily researched to be built with the most modern materials. It is made of a newly developed composite material (not wood but feels & looks like wood) so kids do not have to worry about getting splinters in their feet when walking around the pool area. It is also much cooler to the touch than wood.

The house is perfect for families or up to four couples.

NEIGHBORHOOD

There are nearly 50 restaurants including the famous Snook Inn, 2 grocery stores, 2 drug stores and numerous shops within 5 min of the house. There are also 2 places where you can rent and dock a boat, (boats can't be kept at the property), if you would like to go fishing or just exploring. If you decide to go further afield, it's quick and easy to get off the island to go golfing or up to Naples.

Fabulous Marco Vacation Estate: Great Pool, Views, Location & Layout, Free WiFi

And as much as you'll enjoy the pool area, you'll want to visit Marco Island's fabulous 3.5 mile powdery white sand beaches, only 7 minute from the house.

Please note that events/parties are not permitted at the house. Dock is not available for guest use.

Thank you for taking the time to read about our home. We would love to have you stay here. We encourage you to email us with any questions.

Note: Thank you to all the post-Irma well wishers. The roof lost some shingles but we're pleased to say the house is fine and we've had numerous guests enjoy themselves since almost immediately after the storm.  All the restaurants and shops are open and but for a few signs that have yet to be repaired and a few tarps on roofs, you wouldn't even know there had been a hurricane. If you have any questions, please let us know and we'd be happy to address any concerns you may have.

Why Deborah chose Marco Island

My uncle moved to Marco Island when it was being developed in the late 1960s. He chose this island versus other parts of Southwest Florida because it has the best weather and most sunshine and couldn't understand why everyone was developing elsewhere. The beautiful powdery white sand beaches on Marco are some of the best in the United States. I like the fact that although the island is only 4 miles by 6 miles it is accessible by two bridges and has all the modern amenities without being crowded. There is a wonderful feeling being in Marco Island. I chose this house because of the unique layout and the history of the home. Back when the island was being built there were 5 phases of development. The 3rd, 4th and 5th phases were stopped when it emerged that the 4th and 5th phases were going to destroy valuable mangroves. The developers then lobbied Washington and Richard Nixon himself to broker a deal to allow the development of the 3rd phase as long as they didn't develop the 4th and 5th phases. The house was built for Richard Nixon who stayed here during his presidency and during his visits to Marco Island. The layout is unique because they had to develop it for the secret service staff as well as the president.

What makes this House unique

Although most people come to Marco Island for the beaches we consistently get the comment that most people loved the idea that they could completely relax at the house without having to go anywhere. With the unique layout guests have the flexibility to get up when they want without disturbing others, make meals when they want, go fishing from the pier, layout at the pool on the beautiful sundeck, visit in the living room while watching the kids swim in the pool, check their emails while laying out by the pool (if you call this a vacation) or spot dolphins or manatees from the backyard. Everyone can move at their own pace without disturbing others - a true vacation for all.

The pool was perfect and that it was there 24/7 worked out so well. The surrounding area of Marco Island and Naples provided closeness for getting away for awhile. Wonderful place and highly recommend it.

                                                                    Owner's Response:

You're right it's so easy get around the island as well as off the island for trips up to Naples or golfing. The pool is most peoples favorite feature. It's larger than some condominium pools and you get it all to yourself.

                                                                    We hope you'll be able to return soon.
