About Steve Fry

Steve and Betsy Fry are residents of Michigan and currently live in Grand Rapids, Michigan. They have 2 grown children and 2 grandchildren.

Steve Fry purchased this house in 2011

Why Steve Fry chose Marco Island

After visiting friends in Marco island in 2009, we fell in love with the island and decided that we wanted to eventually retire there. We started on a home search and 2 years later found this home and purchased it just 2 days after it was on the market. We love the wide bay that gives us a feeling of privacy. The home itself was perfect for our needs and really like the open flow of the floor plan and the vaulted ceilings.

Have been coming to Marco island for several years now. Steve and Betsy have a beautiful , well maintained home and are very accessible if needed. Being a home builder I can appreciate the quality and attention paid to detail. You cannot go wrong renting this gorgeous home. Tom & Deb Case

superb Marco Island location for this beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed a fabulous week on Marco Island, enjoying all the very well appointed aspects of comfort and luxury found at "Strawberry Delight" - This home has a tremendous amount of space for everyone to enjoy great times together or individual quiet times relaxing on the dock by a very wide canal or alongside the pool. Several places to take advantage of eating outside or inside.

This home is centrally located to all the action you may want to find on

beautiful Marco Island but it has the appeal of being on a quiet street.

We would have loved to be there for longer than one week and hope to return!

Lovely and comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from a short 5 night stay. The owners, Steve and Betsy were very easy to deal with and very responsive to any issues that we had - some beyond their control.

The photos in the listing very accurately reflect the loveliness of the property. There will be no negative surprises.

The home comfortably sleeps 3 couples. The master bedroom is on one side, which was nice for privacy. Plenty of room for a group in the living room or places to hide from others.

The pool is a perfect size for short laps or just lazing. There are several confortable sitting areas outside - sun, shade or in between we had plenty of choices.

For folks worried about hurricane damage on Marco Island. Most of what we saw was roof damage to some homes that were in process of being repaired The beaches are as beautiful as always, the shops and favorite dining spots show little or no wear and tear. Bottom line, Marco is fully open for business.

Strawberry Delight

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the property. The owner informed us that the lanai was destroyed by Hurricane Irma and that the new one might be installed during our stay. That didnt happen and quite frankly we are glad it didn't. The pool was awesome and the waterfront was even better. The house was very clean and comfortable, the master bed was as well. We stayed for 12 days and it was not enough. The owners were great to deal with, we encountered a problem with the grill and it was replaced within 48 hours. Perhaps next time we'll stay even longer. We loved it!
