Beautiful spacious home! There were 9 of us plus a toddler and we had more than enough space.
We were a family of 10, ages 20 months to 90, who stayed for Christmas thru New Years. We thoroughly enjoyed the spacious house! There were many places to eat, sit and relax. We all enjoyed the pool and appreciated the screened in lanai overlooking the canal (which was great for our toddler). The added bonus was the dock as we rented a boat for a few days. Although a car is necessary, the place is conveniently located to all of the sights on Marco Island. The owners were wonderful!
It was a pleasure to have such wonderful people as guests. It always feels good to know people are enjoying our beautiful island and our house. Thanks for the great compliments! Judy
Marco Island is a small Island; 4 miles wide by 7 miles long, but it is very unique. The Calusa Indians lived here 2000 years ago (near the house on Indian Hill). They ate shell fish and discarded their shells to form small mountains on our island. The hills were used to avoid flooding and for security. The scenery around the hills are very special and artifacts have been found that are in our museum at this time located on Heathwood.
Fishing is one of the highlights; Rose Marina has private boats for Gulf of Mexico fishing or back water fishing. There is also sight seeing boats and para-sailing, etc. If you go to Tigertail Beach, there is equipment on the beach that you can rent; like water bicycles, floats, etc. Behind the Marriott, you can rent a sail boat.
The Gulf is warm for swimming (nice sand bottom) and stays warm until December. Many swimmers through out the winter months as well.
On Sundays, you can enjoy outside country entertainment at Stan's on Goodland Island (off San Marco Rd). This is the place that originated the "Buzzard Lope" that is an annual party with prizes and creative dancing that is a "must see".
The Everglades feature eco tours of birds and alligators, and long walks. To look back into yesterday a trip to Everglade City is a must to see what Florida used to look like. Everglade City was started by Barron Collier to house the employees who built the Tamiami Trail from Tampa to Miami. They were paid with money that could only be spent in Everglade City; a company town. The museum there is packed with great information about yesteryear! Down the road, you will discover the Caloosahatchee town where the Smallwood Trading Post is located and Indians used to trade furs, etc for supplies.
If you continue to drive across 41, you will come to Miami with lots of shopping, spanish restaurants and South Beach.
From Marco Island north to Hwy 41 East, you will find the affluent area of Naples and 5th ave and 3rd St are very popular areas for restaurants and bars. In season, 3rd street is blocked off for a few days for music and festivals. A drive down Port Royal will show you the $20 to $50 million dollar homes!
