There are two round end tables, and there is a large coffee table. There is a 48 inch flat screen television. There is a Bluray player hooked up to this television. This room has a wall of sliding glass doors that provide a stunning view of the waterfront of the home.

The kitchen is unique in its design and has lots of granite topped counter space and room to work for those who enjoy cooking. There are double ovens for your group and five burners on the stove. We provide you with plenty of cookware, dishes, glasses and silverware. In addition, you will have a 4-slice toaster, blender, coffee maker, tea kettle, hand mixer, Belgian waffle maker, turkey roasting pan, and lots of other items for food preparation.

In the dining nook, there is seating around the bar table for four, and more seating for 3 at the bar. In addition, there is seating for 2 at the family room bar.

The home features 5 comfortable bedrooms. All of the bedrooms have lovely tile floors. Four are found off of the hallway behind the family room and living room areas. To the left off of the hallway is a master bedroom with king sized bed, high dresser, another dresser, ceiling fan and a 40" flat screen television. It has a large closet. This bedroom has a blue and white tiled bathroom with shower/tub combo. The bedroom window opens to the lanai and has views of the water. The exterior door from the bedroom conveniently exits out onto the screened pool patio.

In the center of the hallway is the oak bedroom with a queen sized bed, high dresser, 32" flat screen television, closet and ceiling fan. This room overlooks the pool. There is a bathroom directly across from this bedroom that has a shower/tub combo.

To the right of the hallway is the 2 bedroom family suite. The first bedroom features a lovely queen sized bed, nightstand and high dresser with a 32" flat screen television. It is attached to a bathroom with shower/tub combo. This room is facing the front area of the house and also has a large closet and ceiling fan. Attached to this bedroom is another bedroom. There is a slatted door between the two bedrooms. This setup is especially nice for families with children. The back bedroom has a very large window overlooking the pool, and an exterior door that goes out onto the screened pool patio. There is a queen sized bed, large dresser, nightstand, and 32" flatscreen television in this room. This room has a large walk-in closet.

The enormous fifth bedroom is found upstairs. It is on the opposite side of the house and is a very quiet and private retreat! This room is around 500 square feet and has cool to the touch tile floors. In this room is a king sized bed, 2 nightstands and large dresser with mirror. There is also an incredibly comfortable chaise lounge that is perfect for reading a book. A large leather sofa that seats four is in front of the 40" television, along with a coffee table. It's a perfect spot for a family or the kids to watch their favorite program in peace. A small balcony is at the front of the room, over the front of the house. The bathroom has a shower/tub combo. There is a large walk-in closet. A window in the back of this room overlooks the water.

The house has a very large garage where the laundry setup (washer and dryer) is found. We have several beach chairs. Since rafts can get torn, and toys disappear or get forgotten at the beach, we do not advertise that we provide them. However, various guests often add them during the season, and we leave them there for future guests. In the garage you will find three adult sized bikes. There are beach towels in the house for each guest. You will find a gas grill outside of the garage, near the waterfront.

Although we love the interior of this house, the exterior is what we absolutely adore! The pool is on the other side of the downstairs bedrooms. It is screened and has foliage along the side for privacy. Rather than sharing your pool with a bevy of hotel guests, you get the entire crystal clear pool to yourself. It measures around 20 x 40 feet. In addition, there is a very large hot tub attached to the pool. The pool area has pavers and there are four chaise lounges, along with four chairs, and a loveseat so guests have a spot to relax. There are also several small tables to set beverages or snacks. The pool is heated using an electric heater, and the hot tub can be turned on and off using a tablet provided specifically for that purpose. We place a solar heater, along with the reel at the edge of the pool during the months when the weather is cooler at night. That way, guests can cover the pool in the evenings if they wish for the pool to retain the heat from the day.

Our lanai is the spot where we really enjoy relaxing. It is immediately behind the family room and kitchen along the back of the house. The lanai is completely tiled, and has sliding doors between it and the house. There are fixed and slider windows facing the waterfront. There are three entrances into the lanai from the exterior. One is off of the pool, another is off of the area leading to the dock and the final is off of the patio. There is dining seating here for at least 12 people. In addition, there are two huge lounge chairs that will seat two apiece, as well as an additional chair with ottoman. It's a fabulous place to read, visit, enjoy the breeze, or play board games. Opening up the windows and running the fans when you are out there really helps to keep that area cool. It is especially nice during the winter time, especially when you can open up the sliders to cool off the rest of the house with fresh ocean air. This area is completely enclosed on the sides, but does have screen between the roof and walls, so it is not air conditioned.

A beautiful travertine paver front porch was recently added. There are six white adirondack chairs on the front porch. In addition, we have an 80' long paver sundeck along the waterfront. Here you will find adirondack chairs, chaise lounges, and small tables. This is an incredible and very unique space at our home, provided for the enjoyment of our guests.

It is our hope that our visitors will really enjoy all that our home has to offer for their special getaway.

About Teressa

We both grew up in Ohio. My husband graduated from college in Virginia, and I graduated from a private college in Ohio. Due to my husband's extensive educational opportunities, and his career path, we have had the opportunity to live in many different parts of the country. After nineteen years of marriage, we live with our children in Florida. Due to both of our work situations, we are settled in Florida for good! We enjoy travelling, love visiting the beaches that are located in our surrounding area, take lots of walks and runs during our beautiful weather, and like spending a lot of time together.

Teressa purchased this house in 2014

Why Teressa chose Florida South West

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. We had visited the island before, but never experienced actually staying there. During our stay, we fell in love with Marco Island. Fishing from South Beach was such an incredible experience for our family. Our children loved going to the beach, and we liked the pace of the island. The sunsets here in Marco are absolutely beautiful!

Ever since that trip, we dreamed of owning a vacation home on the island. We had been looking at houses since that visit. We had an experience that allowed us to purchase a home on the island. After looking at many home listings, we found ourselves coming back to this one. There was something special about it. On our first visit, we were so surprised at the spaciousness and the good feel of the home. The pictures in the listing just did not do it justice! When we met the sellers, we learned that they were actually from our home town, so it was a really neat coincidence. 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 unique home.

What makes this house unique

There are so many great things about this house. We all love to play in the pool. You can spend hours out there swimming, or sit and read and visit. We all really enjoy the hot tub. Its location makes it very comfortable and the screened porch keeps critters away, even at night. The pool area allows you to have privacy and plenty of space for swimming.

The dock is a favorite place of my husband's. He has always enjoyed fishing, and has caught several fish from there since we purchased the house. When our outdoor enthusiast relatives visit, they rent kayaks and paddle them from the Isle of Capri to our house. The children all get to take turns with adults in the kayaks and have a great time going through the canals. Now, THAT is a unique way to see the island! 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 special aspect. The 80 foot long sundeck along the water is quite unique. We have only seen a couple of these types of decks in pictures from other homes on the island.

The lanai area is spectacular. It is a huge area that can be kept dry with the new sliding windows we put in, and can also be opened to allow in the fresh Florida air. You will spend a lot of time on the lanai.

While our home is large, it has a unique layout. It is definitely not a cookie cutter type home. You will not find another property on the island like this one!

Guestbook comments from the manager

The perfect spring break get-away. Tried to pack up the lanai into our carry-on, but it wouldn't fit. Guess we'll just have to come back... :) Pool awesome, lanai awesome, bedrooms awesome, house awesome. We saw flying fish in the canal.

Lovely Home, Everything you Need!

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: 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!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Wonderful Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, along with our three married children, two baby grandchildren and grandmother celebrated a wonderful Christmas week on Marco Island. This home was a perfect location and layout for our large group. The kitchen is well appointed for large groups, the pool and hot tub were a hit with the adults, and each couple having their own bedroom was fantastic. The multiple common area's in the house allowed groups to congregate and catch-up in a relaxed environment. While we have visited Florida multiple times this was our first stay on Marco Island. We enjoyed the many restaurants, as well as South Beach and Tiger Tail Beach and definitely plan on visiting again soon.

It makes us so pleased when families are able to spend quality time together while staying at our home. Marco Island is a lovely and relaxing island, and we would love to have you stay again. We greatly appreciate the good care that you took of our property while you stayed there. Thank you so much for your feedback; it helps us to make the stay for future guests even better.

Great set up for large group

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 adults and 6 kids and had plenty of room. This house was perfect for our group. Kitchen has everything you need to cook and plenty of seating for all. The pool was great. Spent a lot of time there and kids loved it. The location is close to everything and house was large enough where you had your own space. You can walk to star bucks and on a quit neighborhood without any road traffic noise. Great place to stay! Only thing I would change is you can only have the AC down to 72 at night. I love it cold when I sleep (usually 68) but they had plenty of fans.

Owner's Response: We are glad that your stay at our home went well and that it worked so nicely for your group. In addition, we are so pleased that the pool was a hit with the kids and that the location of the home was convenient. Our thermostats do have a low temperature setting limit based on the recommendation of our heating and cooling company in order to keep the 3 AC units working as smoothly as possible in the hot South Florida weather, and in order to avoid maintenance issues with them. Thank you so much for staying in our home, and please keep us in mind for future visits to Marco Island! We are very happy that you had a great vacation with plenty of space to enjoy your time there.

Amazing Family Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We were able to gather all of our grown children, their significant others, and our grandchildren for a wonderful vacation in beautiful Marco Island. We could not have asked for a better home to compliment our long anticipated family vacation! All of us had our own comfortable room for privacy, while the rest of this lovely home provided a great space and atmosphere for family fun! The pool/hot tub was fabulous and enjoyed for many hours a day! The Lanai was so peaceful with it's water views, and the layout of the home was very accommodating for our large group. We bar-b-qued, enjoyed local restaurants, saw the sites, and explored the island beaches. Thanks to Theresa and her husband for offering such a wonderful, clean and well stocked home! From the kitchen appliances, to the supply of pool toys, we wanted for nothing! We will recommend it often and we will definitely return!

We do our best to continually maintain and upgrade our home, and to make sure it is well stocked for our guests. We would love to have you and your family stay at our home again in the future!

This home is located in a nice, established neighborhood at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac. It 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 beach areas beneath the bridge where locals go to fish in the bay. The Esplanade, a very nice shopping area with plenty of popular eateries, is just a mile away from the house. The house is 2 miles from Tigertail Beach, which is great for shelling and bird watching, as well as relaxation on the quiet beach. This is a great spot for paddle boarding. It is approximately 4 miles from South Beach, which has excellent fishing off of the jetty and is a great place for sunning, playing games on the sand and swimming in the water. The Rookery Bay Reserve is just a few miles away and there are places for kayak and paddle board rentals. It's really fun to take them through the canals, if you are the outdoors type. Naples is only a short drive away and has wonderful restaurants, shopping and cultural activities. Our children enjoy visiting the Naples zoo, as well. The Naples Pier at sunset is a must-see for those who visit here!
