Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and we are glad you had a nice time in Marco Island. Sorry about the tiles - there was a leaking pipe underneath the master bathroom floor so just before you arrived I had a handyman go out and repair it. New tiles were ordered shortly thereafter. Please let me know if and when you would like to come back.

Stunning home

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing property!!

We rented the home for a family trip during the Christmas holiday. It was a gift to our grown children and grandchildren.

There were 9 of us staying in the home for a week.

I have to say it was one of the best gifts I had ever gotten!

The pictures do not do the home justice!

It is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!

Plenty of room for all of us.

We loved the pool, spa and pool table. Used them often.

Perfect kitchen to cook meals, very comfortable beds and stunning views of the sunset from the patio by the pool

The location was perfect!

We went to Tigertail Beach almost every day ( Walking distance) and found dozens of sand dollars not to mention the hundreds of beautiful shells.

We walked to the Eagle sanctuary down the street and spotted bald Eagles flying to and from their nest.

The kids fished in the canal out back and even caught an eel (YIKES) LOL

Overall I would recommend this home over any other if you were to choose Marco Island as your destination.

The weather was in the upper 80's every day

We hated to leave...

Fantastic Family Home Rental

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home over the Thanksgiving holiday and had everything we could possibly need to prepare a fantastic holiday meal and have great family fun.

In addition to the awesome location (walking distance to Tiger Tail Beach and the Esplanade shops and restaurants) this home is equipped with everything you need to just stay home and soak up the Marco Island ambience. The sunrise and moonrise are spectacular from the screened in pool area. The totally open floor plan optionally incorporates the outdoors by simply opening the expansive sliding glass doors that extend through the home.

We didn't have any inclement weather -- but if we had the big screen TV's, comfy couches, piano, pool table, and board games would have saved the day.

Great Stay!

Paradise

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four stayed for 10 days in March 2016. The location of the home is perfect. Very short and nice walk to the end of Marco Beach at Tigertail. See the bald eagles nesting around the corner and the burrowing owls along your way to the beach. The house is in a very quiet spot, we loved the lanai with the pool and hot tub. The owner and the management company were very helpful in getting the heater working for us, it was a little complicated but easily resolved. The house itself is set up perfectly for a family or more. We loved the pool table (the piano takes up a lot of unecessary space)- the rooms were very comfortable and it was well supplied with kitchen supplies. It was nice to have the beach equipment in the garage as well as the bikes. We brought our paddle boards and were able to SUP right off the back dock as well as fish. The house itself could use a little updating in terms of painting but it really was all about the comfort and location for us. Great spot!

Nice location but needs maintenance

  • 4 of 5

The heater didn't work on the jacuzzi or pool. Called for service and it didn't get fixed until day 5. Also TV in one of the bedrooms wouldn't work even after the handyman tried to fix it. Nice location and plenty of space but needs some updating and maintenance.

Owner's Response: Dear Kendra, Thank you for staying at our place recently and we hope you had a good time. Again - sorry for some of the items not working properly, but as soon as you raised some of the issues I called the pool company, pest control, a handyman, our local home watch contact, and my local rental agent. We tried to fix everything for you ASAP but managing a rental unit in Florida while living permanently in Brazil can have its challenges - especially during the holiday season. I will take your constructive criticism into account and will try to improve the house the next time I am able to visit it. Happy New Year. Best regards, Henrik

Hidden Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

Our visit to this house was like a voyage of discovery to a hidden paradise. From the spacious living room you have a full view of the swimming pool with its hot bubble bath and over the canal with its many luxurious motor boats. Two 60 inch TV sts and one billiard table gave us a lot of diversion inside the house and a healthy bicycle tour of five minutes took us to our favourite bathing spot at Tigertail Beach, where you can bask in the sun in splendid solitude if you wish. This large nature reserve of this otherwise fully exploited beach has highrise hotels and apartment buildings a mile away thanks to the efforts of the environmentalists in the 1970s. This really contributed to our impression that we stayed in an outstanding vacation paradise. We are looking forward to more revisits and will also highly recommend this house to our friends.

Owner's Response: We are very pleased you enjoyed our house as well as the beautiful community of Marco Island. There is so much to do there that watching TV is almost an afterthought, but I did want to point out that there are in fact three 60 inch TVs and two 32 inch TVs in the house. Perhaps you were enjoying the surroundings so much you didn't notice! Thank you for your comments and any time you want to escape the Swedish winters again please let us know.
