Casa De Marco holiday apartments are in the best position possible to access the finest of Florida, from its peerless beaches to the exploratory adventures to be had in the Everglades. Situated on Marco Island, chief among a large group of isles basking in the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, the luxurious accommodation at Casa De Marco is the perfect staging point for shopping expeditions around the many eclectic boutiques on the island, as well as golfing jaunts into nearby Naples. Air-conditioning is typically standard in Casa De Marco holiday rentals, as is satellite or cable TV, a DVD player, and a washer/dryer to rinse away the sand and salt after a day at the beach or on the water.
-Beaches: Over ten miles of pearl-white beaches greet the sea on Marco Island's western shore, within easy walking distance of Casa De Marco holiday accommodation. Quieter, more secluded beaches, accessible only by boat, are scattered among the surrounding islands.
-Watersports: Holiday rentals at Casa De Marco are always right on the water, thanks to Marco Island's latticework of saltwater canals. Marinas are plentiful, offering everything from surfboard hire and chartered fishing boats to eco-tours of the islands, lagoons and marshes.
-Nightlife: Laid-back yet refined, the nightlife on Marco Island melds the two polarities well. There's the beach shack scene, with surfers rubbing shoulders with fishermen and sailors, as well as fine dining restaurants for those who like things a little more genteel.
-Everglades: Over 4,000 square miles of swamp, prairie and forest dominate the Floridian landscape from Orlando down to the keys, and Casa De Marco holiday homes are right on their doorstep. There are many ways to explore, by land or on the water, and there's so much to see guests could quite easily spend their entire holiday just here.
-Shopping: There are several shopping hubs on Marco Island, all offering their own take on exclusivity. Boutiques abound, with high-end labels dominating. Add to the mix great souvenirs, crafts, and superb cafés to unwind in, and guests can shop till they drop in fetchingly designed settings.
The subtropical climate of Florida is well suited to year-round holidaying. The summers don't get particularly hot, topping out in the mid-30s, but the drawback, for some, is the humidity. With so much water around, from the sea and the hinterland, high humidity is quite inevitable when temperatures rise. Thus the summer, in Florida, is the wet season, as the humidity transposes into frequent afternoon thunderstorms. The winters, however, roughly equate to British summers, with temperatures in the low-20s and little to no rainfall.
As with most travel into America, the best method is to fly/drive. With extremely reasonably priced petrol and an efficient road system, it's easy to see why America is considered the land of the automobile. The nearest airport to Marco Island is Southwest Florida International Airport, at 49 miles away. However, there are no direct flights from Europe or the UK to this hub. The nearest airport with direct flight capability is Miami International, at 103 miles away. Unfortunately there is no public transport on Marco Island, but Greyhound do operate a stop in the adjacent city of Naples.
