This was a wonderful spring break trip for our family and a big part of that was this wonderful rental house! It really felt like our home and had everything (and more) that we could have needed for a great trip. The house is well maintained, very clean, spacious and comfortably furnished. The location is really wonderful! Its located in a beautiful, quiet and safe neighborhood that is a short drive to most places. We enjoyed taking early morning and evening walks with our dog and often saw friendly neighbors enjoying the outdoors too. The location on the canal was great and there was no boat traffic on the canal at all so we felt safe with our kids kayaking and paddle boarding right off the dock. Speaking of that, the amenities and things provided with this rental was beyond anything we have ever had in a rental and would have cost a lot to rent individually. The garage was stocked with 2 kayaks, a paddle board, several bikes (even helmets!), tons of beach chairs, pool toys, sand toys, fishing gear, coolers, and more! The kitchen was well stocked with everything you could need and had nice, clean and updated appliances. Although we mostly cooked on the nice outdoor grill! The outdoor TV was a plus and my husband enjoyed watching the Masters while relaxing by the pool! The fishing off the dock was so fun and my kids did that for hours! We went to the JW for Easter brunch but all of us could not wait to get back to the relaxation of our house with our own pool and none of the crowds! The owner was a pleasure to work with and would respond almost immediately to any messages sent. He was very accommodating to allow us to bring our dog and also arrange for us to stay an extra day! We have rented a lot of vacation houses in many different destinations and this one was definitely one of the best! We are already thinking of when we can plan another stay! Thank you again for a great vacation for our family!
Wow. I would personally like to thank you for taking the time to write this review. We try our hardest to have our home in the best condition we can and provide everything you might need and then some for a perfect vacation. We look forward to tour return visit!
House was terrific - clean and nicely remodeled. Enjoyed the pool area overlooking canal. Excellent experience.
Very pleased with the home, location, amenities and property owners at this home.
We rented this home for the month of September and even though we were interrupted by Hurricane Irma, we loved our visit. The location is great, close to everything on the island and sits right on the inter coastal. The home is lovely, comfortable and everything in the house, from dishes, furniture, sheets and towels are high quality. The garage is stocked with new kayaks, beach chairs, fishing poles, bicycles, etc. Everything you need for a great stay.
Because of the hurricane, we had the opportunity to meet and get to know the owners. I cannot say enough good things about Carter and Beth Ann. They are wonderful to work with and care a great deal about their property and ensuring that their guests enjoy their stay.
We can't wait to return to Marco Island and this home.
Rick and Mindy were the kindest people. Unfortunately Hurricane Irma interrupted their month stay on Marco and they evacuated back North to fly back several days later. They came to help out which in todays world is unreal. Thank you Rick and Mindy!
Terrific family getaway!
Our family of five had a fantastic time spreading out in this beautiful home and being able to take advantage of the large pool, covered lanai and deck, the multiple bedrooms and bathrooms... This was a wonderful home for us to enjoy for some great family time, with everyone having a spot to call their own. Clean, comfy, and wow, was the master bed awesome! Great nights of sleep! Conveniently located to restaurants, shopping, beach - a winner!
