About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This luxurious home, located at 1800 Canby Ct. has been completely remodeled by Jonathan & Beth Hondorf who are renowned designer and builder. It offers 2,050 square feet of air-conditioned living space. The 1,680 square feet of screened-in lanai deck includes a heated 35-foot swimming pool, and an eight-foot spa with a covered area which includes an outdoor grill for outdoor dining.
The home has high ceilings throughout, with light flooding in from all directions. The living and dining rooms have 18-foot ceilings with 12-foot-long sliding glass doors that completely open up, connecting the living area with the lanai. All doors leading to the pool are fitted with special child-proof locks.
The kitchen is completely outfitted for any and all culinary delights and has a large eat-in breakfast area. The spacious master bedroom has a king-size bed, walk-in closets, and a large bath with a separate walk-in shower, soaking tub, and two vanities.

The other bedrooms have pillow top queen-size beds, and there is an inflatable air mattress on a frame for extra sleeping needs.

This waterfront home has a large boat dock for sunbathing. It has water and power along with a fish cleaning table. With its direct access to the 'River Area' and Gulf, it's perfect for mooring up to three boats. Many native fish, Manatees, and Porpoise frequent around the dock.

The private yard is extensively landscaped in native species and fruit trees with meandering paths and boardwalks. We maintain it in a sustainable, environmentally sensitive, method that does not use toxic chemicals. This ensures a safe environment for the native birds a well as our guests. The xeroscaped yard does not require artificial watering thereby preserving our most precisous commodity: water. This means more native birds and a Red Hawk that frequent the yard.

This home has quality finishes, updated features, and amenities needed for a relaxing tropical vacation.

About the owner: Building Contractor and environmental preservationist whitewater rafting in Desolation Canyon, Utah

Why the Owner Chose Marco Island, FL, USA:
Marco Island is a unigue area in Florida that combines the natural habitat with the developed environment. We try to MAINTAIN THIS PROPERTY IN AN ENVIRONMENTALLY SUSTAINABLE WAY where we minimize the use of toxic chemicals and harsh environmental practices. Our landscaping is Florida natural landscaping with native species of fruit and flower varieties utilizing xeroscape practices. We minimize the use of pesticides, fertilizers, and heavy watering. It is not an out of control, poorly maintained, landscaping which some may think upon first observation. Guest should take this into consideration and not compare to others that use very toxic, harsh, and water wasteful maintenance practices. This allows for a safer environment for our quests and helps protect the very delicate local environment encountered in south west Florida.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Private extra lot on side waterfront dock with fishing, exotic mature native trees, palm,mango,tangerine. High elevation pool area
