About John and Sally Pelling
My wife Sally and I met at Northwestern University in 1969 and have been married 43 years. We have 4 adult married children and 9 grandchildren. We raised our family in Hinsdale, Illinois and first discovered this island paradise in 1996. I was trading at the Chicago Board of Trade and Sally was/is a real estate broker. We purchased a 2 bedroom beach condo and enjoyed it for vacations and occasional long weekends. It was the perfect respite from our hectic lives. (Owners are licensed Realtors in the state of Florida).
John and Sally Pelling purchased this House in 2005
Why John and Sally Pelling chose Marco Island
As the children got older and married we realized we needed more room for our expanding family. As a Realtor on the island I discovered this gem of a home backing to the Island Country Club. It is not the cookie cutter home that can be found throughout the island. It is an original Deltona ranch (Mackle brothers Deltona Corp. developed the island in the 60's) that had been expanded throughout the years. My wife and I loved the spacious open floor plan, private bedroom en suites, and golf course views. We purchased the home, renovated it and in 2013 took out the pool and deck and installed a new swimming pool with a greatly expanded lanai. Over the years we have had several friends visit us who also fell in love with Marco Island and eventually purchased homes or condos here. We never plan to leave Marco Island and currently own two other homes nearby.
What makes this House unique
This home offers spacious entertaining areas both inside and out as well as four very private bedroom en suites. Most of the home looks out on the gorgeous swimming pool, lanai and golf course. It is especially spectacular at night with the colorful pool and landscape lighting. There is nothing more relaxing than enjoying wine, background music and a quiet poolside dinner with friends and family.

Family Vacation 2019
We had a wonderful week in this beautiful home! The house and pool are perfect for all ages. The extra security alarms on doors leading to the pool gave us added peace of mind with our 3 year old grandson ! Can’t wait to plan another Marco Island stay at this house !
Perfect for family gatherings!
Best vacation ever!!!
Spacious, comfortable, beautiful...perfect!!
Our stay at John and Sally’s Marco Island retreat was beyond all expectations! The house was perfect for our large family. The kids loved the pool and ample space to run around; the adults loved that there was plenty of space for the kids to run around while we relaxed :). The kitchen had everything you could need, there were plenty of bath and pool towels and the linens and room furnishings were much better than you would expect for a rental property...really the home had anything you could need or want!
The pool/hot tub is the best part! It is gorgeous and very well maintained...we could never get the kids out.
Big thank you to John and Sally, they left us plenty of ideas for our stay and were beyond accommodating during our 10 days in paradise. Our family would recommend this house to anyone looking for the perfect Marco Island getaway. We would go back in a heart beat!
Amazing home! Highly recommended!
This was our first trip to Marco Island and it was amazing due in large part to this beautiful home. More than enough space for 2 families (9 people) to enjoy the large pool/ lanai, to relax and watch a movie, and sit down together for meals. This house is a true gem. Looking forward to staying here again.
The house was absolutely georgous. The layout took all of our needs into consideration.
John and Sally were great owners. They responded to our dream of getting our family together from 4 different states. The house was fantastic. The bedrooms were separate from the social area and each had its own bathroom which made the deal for us. The pool area....the family spent most of their awake time there. The grand kids turned into fish. All ten of us would highly recommend this lovely location to anyone. Thank you John and Sally!
Fantastic!! Great space for infants all the way to grandparents! Delightful hosts too!
Exceeded expectations!! The lanai made this stay great for our entire family. Bedrooms are spacious. Could not have been any better. I highly recommend this property and would rent it again.
