About Teressa White
We both grew up in Ohio. One of us graduated from the University of Virginia, and the other from a small private college in Ohio. We've been married for over 20 years and currently live with our 3 children in Southeast Florida. Both of us enjoy travelling, love visiting the beaches that are located in our surrounding area, and take daily walks together. I love to cook, and I am always happy to add new kitchen items if requested. In addition, my husband enjoys fishing, and likes to tell his biggest catch stories from Marco Island!
Teressa White purchased this House in 2014
Why Teressa White chose Marco Island
Our family was transferred to the central Florida area several years ago. Soon after moving to Florida, we stayed in a friend's house on Marco Island and during our stay, fell in love with the island. Ever since that trip, we dreamed of owning a vacation home on the island. This home was so different from many of the homes that we looked at. It is truly unique and different, but also has a nice feel to it. This home was owned by one family from the time it was built. The original owner passed it down to family members, and so we feel very fortunate to be the second family owning this very special home.
What makes this House unique
There are numerous unique things about this house. We all love to play in the pool and enjoy the spa, which is surprisingly large. Many of the homes on Marco Island are very similar, "cookie cutter" homes, with the same layouts, the same types of flooring and ceilings. This one is unlike anything else we saw and is very distinctive. The dock is a perfect spot for fishing or kayaking. Sunrise views from the dock are full of color and beauty. The 155 feet of waterfront is a real plus, as well. It's rather unusual to have that much space along the water, but the layout of this property allows that interesting aspect. The 70 foot long sundeck along the water is beautiful. The sunroom area is spectacular. It is a huge area that can be kept dry with the sliding windows and can also be opened to allow in the fresh Florida air. Guests tell us they spend a lot of time on the lanai. While our home is large, it has a practical layout. It is definitely not a standard type home. I can guarantee that you will not find another property on the island like this one!

This house was perfect for our family vacation. We had 8 adults and 4 kids. The bedrooms were huge and the beds were comfortable. The kitchen was great. We loved the screened in porch and spent endless hours in the pool and hot tub. The rental company was so fantastic to work with and when a few little issues came up they were handled and corrected immediately. The fishing off the dock was awesome everyday. We also enjoyed using the bikes. I recommend the pirate ship expierence at rose marina for any kids and we loved the food at Doreen’s. I can’t wait to go back!
Great rental for extended family gathering
This property was ideal for our extended family gathering, 6 adults and 5 children under 10. Of course the kids spent most the week enjoying the pool and connected hot tub.
The many different gathering spaces were large enough to gather all together and yet provide separate spaces for all to enjoy their various activities.
The bedroom layout, and access to the pool for 4 bedrooms, were ideal to provide separation for the three families.
Owners provided detailed instructions and expectations for the many aspects of their home which were extremely helpful.
Home was well equipped from the bikes and pool toys to the large kitchen.
A great value for a large rental house on Marco Island.

We highly recommend staying at this home for your Marco Island vacation. This large home is in a nice location and is quiet without road noise etc. It was very clean and all of the furnishings and bedrooms were very comfortable, even for large families like mine.

Lovely Home, Everything you Need!
We were in Florida for our Son and Daughter In Law's Wedding, and we stayed at this property! It was clean, comfortable, and had everything we really needed! We LOVED the screened porch-it is HUGE and the pics don't do it justice! The pool was great, clean and well kept! Would highly recommend this property! Thanks!

Beautiful house on the canal
Our family of 11 adults stayed in this wonderful home for a week. It was clean, had plenty of linens and and kitchenwear, and so much room. The pool and hot tub wear immaculate and so refreshing. We used the bikes in the garage several times, and the beach toys when we went to the beach. The management company was great in response to a few minor issues we had. It was a great place for a family reunion and I highly recommend it.
We are so glad that your large family gathering at our property was enjoyable. We are continually adding new linens and items to the kitchen for the convenience of our guests. Our cleaning crew works hard to make sure that the home is ready for the guests, so it is good to know that you were pleased with the job that they did. The large pool area and hot tub are perfect spots for relaxing and enjoying the sun, and we are happy to hear that they were to your liking. It's great to know that you were able to use the bikes and extra items found in the garage. Our management company responds quickly to guests when issues (no matter how small) may arise. It has been very helpful having them work with us. They strive to serve our guests in a prompt and courteous manner. We appreciate your communication with our company regarding a couple of small things, because we were able to address them during your stay, and immediately after you checked out. Communication like that from guests is so important and helpful for owners. We thank you for staying at our home and for taking such excellent care of it while you were there. You are certainly welcome to come stay again in the future!
Family Vacation Fun!
This home was perfect for our family of eight with five bedrooms! Everything was really clean and we had lots of room to be together as well as have our own private space. We all loved the pool and the hot tub. The lanai became our relaxation space as well as where we gathered for meals...beautiful view of the canal. The paved dock area was a fun place to watch for boats and wildlife. The house was located in a very quiet neighborhood and we used the bikes several times. It was great to have beach chairs and toys...we enjoyed trips to Tiger Tail Beach and South Beach and also took trips on the Dolphin Explorer on Marco Island, Everglades City Airboat Tour in Everglades City, and Naples Pier. Mackle Park on Marco Island was fantastic for the kids and we also enjoyed the mini-golf course. The property owner was wonderful to work with and answered all of our questions/concerns promptly. We loved our stay at this home and loved Marco Island!
We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at our home. It is great to know that the home's amenities met your expectations. We appreciate your communications with us, as well as your helpful feedback. Thank you for taking excellent care of our property while you stayed there. You are certainly welcome to stay in our home again in the future!
Located in a nice, established neighborhood at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, the home is one mile from the top of the Jolley Bridge, which stretches over stunning Barfield Bay. The views at the bridge at sunrise and sunset are beautiful. There are a couple of very small sandy areas beneath the bridge where locals go to fish in the bay. The Esplanade, a popular shopping area with several eateries, is just a mile away from the house. The Rookery Bay Reserve is a few miles away and there are shops with kayak and paddle board rentals. Be adventurous and take them through the canals. Or, rent a pontoon boat for the day! Marco Island is a lovely, slow paced island. You will love the clean and beautiful beaches. Enjoy swimming or shelling. Check out South Beach for the awesome fishing from the rocks, or let the kids enjoy snorkeling in the clear water. Gaze at the beautiful sunsets from the shores of Tigertail Beach, or enjoy bird watching along the lagoon there. Spend some time at Mackle Park where the kids can splash in the water area, the teens can shoot hoops, everyone can enjoy playing pool, or you can enjoy a leisurely walk around the huge pond. Marco Island boasts many wonderful restaurants, featuring all types of food: Mexican, Italian, Thai, bars, seaside dining, seafood, fine dining or casual...there is something for everyone. The delightful city of Naples is just a short drive away. Downtown Naples is charming. Naples Pier is a must see at sunset, where you can often catch a glimpse of dolphins frolicking in the sea. You know a place is great when the locals hang out there, and the pier is no exception. The US boasts of 59 national parks, and Everglades National Park is in Marco Island's backyard! Here, they work to restore the swampland that is so important to our ecosystem. Take a day visit to view the water, wildlife and wonder of the incredible Everglades.
