Welcome to the tropical paradise of Marco Island located in beautiful Southwestern Florida. This is a place where you will fall in love with the smell of tropical flowers which are everywhere.
If you have ever wanted to visit a Caribbean-like resort without going through the hassle of leaving the United States, then Marco Island is the place for you. The minute that you arrive on the island you are overcome by a sense of relaxation. Even though you will find all the modern conveniences available to you, the island still has a laid back type of feel to it. There is no Island like it and there never will be again. The weather is always perfect and even when it rains it is still perfect. That is why we have called our home Paradise Found. We are so lucky to be able to share our home and meet new friends.. Thank you for looking at our Paradise Found..
Just a 7 minute walk to Marco Island restaurants, entertainment and shopping which offer an unparalleled opportunity to have a luxurious yet affordable vacation experience. This vibrant waterside residential community, with all its amenities, is set against the backdrop of the unspoiled natural beauty of the Gulf of Mexico, the 10,000 Islands and the Florida Everglades, creating an island destination which is totally unique.
Attractions include around a hundred restaurants and several great shopping centers. But, as we are surrounded by the pristine waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the tranquil backwaters of the 10,000 islands, water sports and beaches are the main draw of a Marco Island vacation. Activities such as world class sport fishing and exceptional Eco-tours head the list of things to do on Marco Island, closely followed, of course, by golf.
Let's not forget the incredible wildlife, which includes dolphins, osprey, herons and many endangered species like the bald eagle and the manatee.
My favorite trip is a tour on wave runner going out visiting the dolphin and manatee. My second favorite trip is fishing with my favorite guide.
We (Elizabeth & Tom) purchased our Marco home 4 years ago as our future retirement home. We live in Alaska and have been vacationing on Marco over 30 years because Tom works on the Trans Alaskan Pipeline and Elizabeth is head of sales at Analytica group in Anchorage. Tom's Mom live on Marco which is how we found Marco. We have always dreamed of owning a home on Marco but we were to young and home prices were to high. We are managing this home (Paradise Found LLC) ourselves so you will receive personal attention directly from the two of us. You can not expect the same type of attention from a Vacation Rental Company. Check out our reviews from our guests, they really are the best. Our home is a place to come and relax. Neighborhood is quiet so we are looking for guests that will respect our neighbors privacy.
Tom & Elizabeth Rensch purchased this house in 2010
Why This Property?
This is our baby so we are managing this home ourselves so you will receive personal attention directly from the two of us. You can not expect the same type of attention from a Vacation Rental Company.
Closest home to the beach for this 3 bedroom 2.5 bathroom at the lowest price. Summers are only $995 a week. Just installed 2014 new granite kitchen counter top.
1013 new screened in Lanai.
We love this home because of the unique location, pool area, interior layout of the home, and all the fun things to do on Marco. I forgot to mention renting to all the great guest we get to interact with. We have the best guests. We have been blessed to have wonderful housekeepers that came with the home when we bought it. Raul and Nancy have been cleaning the home for 12 years and are like family to us. The pool is cleaned by Matt for the last 8 years and keeps the pool crystal clear. Cesar our yard dude has been taking care of the yard for 12 years and keeps our tropical yard in beautiful lush condition.
Best of all we love the evening walks to the beach for the sunsets and the early morning walks on the beach for our morning workouts. Did I mention the easy walk to many of the best restaurants.
The home was neat and clean and in a great location. It is perfect of couples 55 and older. Tom and Elizabeth were great to work with and very informative about the area and things to do. You can walk, bicycle or driver to local businesses and restaurants. We just can not say enough good things about our vacation.
My wife and I really enjoyed our time at Paradise Found. It had everything we needed for a great holiday. The pool area is well designed for sunbathing and outside dining and the pool temperature is just right. Inside the layout of the house provided everything we needed for our comfort with a well equipped kitchen, nicely furnished lounge and dining area and a very comfortable bed in the main bedroom. With the beach being only a few minutes walk away the position of the property is superb. Tom phoned to welcome us to Paradise Found and was very helpful with advice during our stay.
The house is as described on line: relaxing, accommodating and laid back. The weather was perfect making our walks to and on the beach, bike rides and pool time most comfortable. The neighborhood and surrounding areas are pristine, "candy-for-the-eyes"! Having a private pool with a lenai surrounded with beautiful palm trees gives the feel of complete privacy, making the stay complete.
Tom was an email, or phone call away for any needs -there weren't any!
Our dinning experience was highlighted at The Prime. Ask for Herry, awesome waiter! Our only disappointment was our service at Snook Inn, won't go back! The movies where enjoyable serving drinks and food while watching in a very comfortable surrounding. Our air boat ride in the Everglades was fun. On our way home we stopped in Naples. A beautiful compliment to Marco's vibe. We ate at Citrus Seafood and had a delicious lunch.
All in all a perfect vacation -just not long enough. It takes a week to drink-it in and another week to never want to go home!
We had an amazing time! The house is wonderful! The pool was larger than we thought and the kids really enjoyed it! The beach is a very easy walkable distance even with a 3 year old! We enjoyed sun rises and sunsets! So many shells!! The wednesday farmer's market is a must. The weather was great! The house is perfectly set-up for fun. We are a family of 6 and there was plenty of space for us. This is a great house for families! My kids loved seeing the burrowing owls that have nested in the neighborhood just like the book Hoot! Tom is a great host and gives great tips on activities and places to visit on Marco Island. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. Everything about this place is amazing and we can't wait to go back! They book up quick so if your week is available do it!! You won't regret your choice!
Paradise Found is exactly as depicted and described - and then some. The lovely home in a very quiet neighborhood is clean, comfortable, and has virtually everything you will need to make your stay restful and relaxing. It really does feel like a home away from home.
When you arrive at Paradise be sure to check the refrigerators (2),cupboards, and closets as you will find everything from spices and spaghetti to shampoo and soaps left by Tom, Elizabeth, and previous guests. We found butter, jams, olives, fudge sauce, and lots more in the fridge as well as a big assortment of herbs and spices. The bathrooms are well stocked with shampoo and soaps, so do check carefully before you grocery shop as you may not need to buy much except perishables.
Tom does indeed call his guests the night of their arrival, just to ensure that they are settled and comfortable, and he wants to be called if a problem should arise. The air-conditioner died midweek during our stay, we called Tom (PLEASE remember that he and Elizabeth live in Alaska and there is a four hour time difference!), and it was immediately repaired. They sincerely care about the comfort of their guests and want your stay to be memorable. With comfy beds, a sizeable very private swimming pool, a cozy family room, games and books for rainy days, bikes, beach gear, and so much more - staying at Paradise Found is a joy.
The beach is a 6-minute walk (very easy to get to), and Marco Walk which has three good restaurants and Marco Movies, a food theatre with wait service, is
about a 10 minute walk away. 7- Eleven gas station close by and Winn Dixie for groceries about 2 miles up Collier Blvd. We suggest you go to the Marco Island information center and pick up their calendar of local events (don't miss the farmers market on Wednesdays), map of the island, and their excellent M.I. 2014 Official Chamber of Commerce Publications. Lots of info and great ideas.
Restaurants tend to be very busy in the evenings. If a restaurant accepts reservations, make sure you make them. Snook Inn (VERY popular) does not and we opted to not wait one hour for dinner. We got there at 5:30pm. Many very good and excellent restaurants to choose from! Dancing outside at the Esplanade on Smokehouse Bay on Thursday - fun for all ages.
We are so happy to have discovered Paradise Found and to have met such kind and caring home owners. Thank you, Tom and Elizabeth, for 7 days of rest and relaxation. We needed it!
Couldn't wait to say "THANK YOU Tom & Elizabeth" but snow in WA caused delay~
Such an accommodating, well furnished home with unending amenities: chairs & cart for the beach, bicycles, inside beautifully furnished down to the small details. Close to anywhere! Great pool with sun or shade, fabulous beach with lots of "treasures" i.e. tons of seashells, interesting birds, mild ocean waters; even the short walk to the beach is pleasant. We'll be bringing Grandchildren next visit as toys were also included ;-)Tom & Elizabeth were most helpful anytime we needed. AND, if there were more stars we would give them ALL to them!!!

6 minute walk to the beach...
Very close to the Marriott..
Pool is true southwestern exposure & very private.
You can rent a car from Fort Myers or Miami airport or take a taxi.
Why stay in a small hotel room when you can stay with us.
This 4 bedroom, 2 bathrooms, Plus 1 Half bath that can sleep 7, has a great pool and lots of room for everyone.
The Marriott, comedy club, bars and restaurants just a few blocks away.
We love our Overseas visitors! :)
UK, Denmark, Germany, Spain, France Thank you for your support!
Kids love our home because of our fun pool toys and so close to the beach!
Parents with kids love our home because we have Pack n Play, Highchair, and the Turtle for pool safety!
We have 2 new adult Comfort Bicycles for fun cycling around Marco!
Our home is super clean and super quiet!
Our pool is heated, and screened in to enjoy 24/7. :)
Other Activities: Paddle boarding, Shelling, Drinking, Sleeping, Going to Church! Wave running just around the corner. Want to go fishing? I can make that happen. We have 2 comfort bikes for riding all over Marco. Marco Island is very flat so riding bikes is great for everyone.
Rent a boat at the local marina and go check out the local shelling Islands. Take a trip to Everglade city to see a gator, go for lunch or an Air-Boat Ride.
Golf: Closest to the island is the Marriott course at Fiddlers Creek.
Farther down the road (951) is LELY RESORT.
There are 3 courses at LELY.
2 are public, Mustang and Flamingo.
The entrance is just West of the intersection of 951 & 41, at the Big Horse statues.
Both are nice. Off-season is probably 1/3 to ½ of normal price.
Cheapest play is at “The Links of Naples”. It is a short course about 4 miles East of the intersection of 951 & 41.
After 2:pm it’s about $20.00 for 18 holes and a cart (I bring my own beer….and cigars).
In between these 2 options (price-wise and quality-wise) is Hibiscus. It is about 4 miles West of the intersection of 951 & 41.
There are other courses farther away, but these are the closest.
