Movies, ice cream parlors, surf shops, beach toys, and nightclubs galore. Indulge in luxury Spas, specialty restaurants, and the most incredible sunsets in the world. We love to go fishing with a local guide and then cook our catch at home on the BBQ or take it to your favorite restaurant where they will cook it for you.

No old bike at this house, we have 2 new adult bikes for your use.

Marco Island is natures paradise, filled with tropical flowers, sights, sounds and smells. Ease into Marco's laid back lifestyle. Loose yourself and discover 'Island Time' amidst friendly, helpful locals.

Ask if you can get a discount for just one couple.. Don't let the size of this home intimidate you couples out there.. When it's just my wife and I we love it.

Spread out and relax in our 3 comfortable bedrooms. The Master bedroom has a luxurious King bed, it's own full bath and a private entrance to your crystal clear pool. Another bedroom has a Queen bed, with a full bath right across the hall and just steps from the pool. The third bedroom has 2 Twin beds. Imagine two separate living areas, one for the kids and one for the adults. The floor plan is soooo cool!

You will not be able to keep the kids out of the pool.

Fly into Ft. Meyers (1 hour away) or Naples (35 minutes away) or Miami or Ft. Lauderdale (each about 2 hours away). You can rent a car or take a taxi from any of these airports or rent a car on the island. Call or e-mail us any time if you have questions or want to reserve your stay.

About Tom & Elizabeth Rensch

Visit our Face Book Page at: "Marco Island Paradise Found"

Elizabeth and I met and live in Alaska and have been visiting Marco for 25 years. We have two wonderful sons Brad and Ian and 5 beautiful grandchildren, Gus, Henry, Lucy, Oliver, and Author. For the past 25 years during the cold Alaskan winters we have vacationed on Marco, and for many years dreamed of having our own little slice of Paradise here. Our dream has finally come true! In Alaska we enjoy fishing, boating, and hiking in - the 'Last Frontier'. We are surrounded by spectacular mountains, glaciers, rivers, ocean and wildlife. We feel incredibly blessed by all that we share in life, particularly each other and our family. We sincerely hope you come to 'Paradise Found' on Marco to share our home and come back often. Please read all our reviews, our guest tell a wonderful story about our Paradise Found.

Notes:
Family friendly, laid back, relaxing.. just like home. Pool is South and West facing for Maximum Sunlight. It is very private and is surrounded by a privacy fence and lush landscaping. If you feel like going to the beach instead, it is about a 6 minute walk, about a block and a half, to the South Beach entrance. Forget crowded hotels and noisy resorts. Relax and experience enchantment all around you. Step around the corner to the beach where the sand caresses your toes and the water is always warm.The gentle waves beckon. The palms whisper, 'kick off your sandals and unwind' The gentle breeze blows softly across your face. The fragrance of flowers linger. Time loses all meaning. The waves sparkle in the sun. You are at one with the sea, You don't have to do anything, but enjoy the bliss that is Paradise Found. Book now.

Paradise was found

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family. My wife, parents, and 2 little boys. (One 2 months old, the other 2 years old). Cleanliness was top notch and Tom and Elizabeth really shared their home with us. They had everything we needed and to make things even better, Tom called a few times to check in and see how we were doing. We did have one issue where the pool was cold and I emailed Tom. 2 hours went by or so, and he called the house. He already had the pool guy scheduled to come out and make the repair the following morning. And those are the kinds of things you'll want when booking on VRBO. Tom handled it promptly and my little boy was swimming comfortably in 86 degree water in no time. 5 stars for this family and we would not hesitate to rent from Tom and Elizabeth again. Thank you so much guys! Trust the reviews.

Honeymoon stay

  • 5 of 5

This home is exactly what we were looking for in a getaway. Close to the beautiful beach with terrific sunsets. Great restaurants and shopping. The home was immaculate and we had everything we needed. The weather was terrific all week, the people were friendly. We ate at some of the establishments Tom recommended and were not disappointed. This home gets 5 stars!

Very nice amenities and owner pays attention to all the details!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable stay here! Beautiful pool and well kept home both inside and out! Owner checked on us a couple times to see if everything was going well. Wonderful beach gear-chairs, umbrella, coolers, and nice cart to bring it all back and forth-available in garage, and 2 public beach accesses were just down the street! Comfortable beds and plenty of space for my family to hang out. Kitchen is well equipped as well. Owner made available an abundance of information on places to eat and things to do on Marco Island. Thanks Tom and Elizabeth!!

Nice Nice Nice

  • 5 of 5

We really liked staying a Paradise Found. It was close to the beach and we had everything we needed. Very clean, very quiet, and very convenient. We really enjoyed the pool and the sunsets. Our favorite place to eat was Pelican Bend and we met the owners who were from Tennessee. Thank you for offering us this place to stay, and we plan to enjoy it again.
