• Big rooms for the whole group to assemble and celebrate special occasions, yet enough space to spread out and have the privacy needed on a vacation, as well

Relax and unwind from the daily hustle and bustle. This is a private waterfront retreat for you and your family and friends. The home accommodates up to a total of 12 guests, including adults and children.

• dock on 155 feet of waterfront

Marvel at the colorful sunrise as you sip on coffee from your perch here. Try your hand at fishing from the dock as you indulge in your favorite beverages. You never know what you’ll catch! Take out some kayaks out for hours of sun and fun!

• 70 foot long sundeck

The perfect spot for a cookout is at the grill by the 70 foot long waterfront paver sundeck. Relax in the chaise lounges or adirondacks as you search for elusive manatee. Gather the whole group here to reminisce about old times.

• 65 foot long sunroom

You will be drawn to the screened/enclosed sunroom that runs along the sundeck, especially during cooler days and on breezy evenings. Eat out there, or play games, or enjoy a quiet talk on the enormous chaise lounges.

• Large gorgeous pool and hot tub

You will spend hours enjoying the private pool. It is surprisingly large, and a favorite spot for guests. During the cooler days and nights, the majority of the guests can enjoy the heat and bubbles of the attached hot tub, all at one time. If you don't enjoy swimming, don't worry; there's plenty of seating so you can be a part of the fun around the pool.

• Come together in the huge updated kitchen as you enjoy meals together

The kitchen boasts granite counter tops, with double ovens, a five burner stove and so much of what you might need for cooking, if you choose to cook on your vacation! You have your choice of dining options. Dine in the eating area of the front room, or sit at the bar in the sunken room and have fun being a part of the activity, or enjoy the dining nook area.

• Big gathering spaces and nice private spots

Kick back and relax on the plush leather furniture in the front living room or sunken family room where you can watch cable television on the flat screen tvs, put on a favorite movie on the blu ray players, or check your email using the provided internet.

Rest peacefully in one of the five bedrooms, or sleep on the pull out sofa in the front room. Each bedroom is equipped with a flat screen cable television and has ample closet space. The two bedroom family suite is perfect for those with children. Two adjoining bedrooms are connected by a door between them. A bathroom is connected to the front bedroom, and the back bedroom opens up to the pool. Upstairs is the perfect spot for those who need a little peace and quiet. The upstairs retreat has around 500 feet with a sitting area, king bed and full bath. All bathrooms are charming with vintage floor tile and each one has a shower/tub combo.

You may not want to over pack, so get some laundry done in the garage laundry using the large capacity LG washer and the Neptune dryer. If you want to take a ride, borrow one of the three bikes. You'll find several beach chairs here and possibly even floats or buckets for good times at the beach.

Perfect for travelling with extended family or large groups of friends because you can all gather together, or if you'd like, have many different areas for privacy. It is our hope that guests will feel at home for their time in our place, and that they will love their time in beautiful Marco Island!

*** During peak rental times, we have "Saturday changeover days" in specific rate periods. This means that renters check-in on Saturday afternoon and check out on a Saturday morning. VRBO's application does not block renters from checking out on a day other than Saturday, despite us having placed a Saturday changeover in the listing on their site. Should you be able to bypass the settings during a peak rental time and reserve a changeover day other than Saturday, we will most likely have to adjust your checkout day to Saturday. It is best to contact us with a message prior to booking to verify dates. ***

About Teressa White

We both grew up in Ohio. One of us graduated from university in Virginia, and the other from college in Ohio. After twenty years of marriage, we live with our children in Southeast Florida. 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. I love to cook, so 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. During our stay, we fell in love with Marco Island. Ever since that trip, we dreamed of owning a vacation home on the island. This home was so very 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 unique 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 hot tub, 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 special aspect. The 70 foot long sundeck along the water is unique and so beautiful.

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. 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. You will not find another property on the island like this one!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We really enjoyed staying at your house. It brought together three households from our extended family. Everyone enjoyed the pool. Our toddlers liked Mackle Park (the best playground on the island). I loved the fresh mangoes from the tree out back. Thanks for having us!

We loved everything!

  • 5 of 5

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. The pool and area around it is very nice. We especially liked the back patio area faces the water. This home has everything you could want for an excellent vacation stay.

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.

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.

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 very nice shopping area with plenty of popular eateries, is just a mile away from the house.

The Rookery Bay Reserve is a few miles away and there are places for kayak and paddle board rentals. It's really fun to take them through the canals,.

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 lovely 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 all 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.
