Enjoy a spectacular view over the pool and the canal from almost all rooms. 3 - 5 minutes’ drive to either of two white sandy beaches and only a couple of minutes’ walk to fine dining, entertainment and great shopping.

Best vacationhome!!

  • 5 of 5

This rental house is without competition the best one we have been staying in. It’s so well planned and the interior is of high quality with all those little details that makes your vacation easy. Location both on the street and on the island is perfect and makes it a great rental regardless of weather, close to get to beaches, easiest by car they have great parking, close to good local restaurants and great outlet shopping as well a short drive away! We and our 6 year old loved the pool and outdoor area at daytime and living room in the evening with DVD, we used the barbeque and had dinner on the terrace one evening, and it was just like home but much better. We will defiantly come back here and next time we will stay a longer time./ A happy family !

Lovely villa, clean, comfortable, great location

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from a week at this villa. My overall view when entering and inspecting as I always do when I arrive somewhere is how clean is this place, and despite the last review I have to say it was, and I am the most fussy when it comes to cleanliness, so we had certainly had a good cleaner in before we arrived. I felt from the photographs prior to renting that the villa was probably a little dated compared to some, but after staying in a brand new place last year on Marco Island which was filthy dirty, well then to me, the cleanliness comes first and it wasn't that dated anyway, not by any stretch. Ulla does seem very lovely, and very helpful. The villa manager was lovely, she came to visit because the pool pump was in need of replacement, so that is correct, and it was replaced immediately and the pool thoroughly cleaned so again very satisfied with the service. We did have intermittent hot/cold water in the main shower, but it didn't bother us to any degree, the master bedroom is lovely and the bathroom was lovely too. the beds were all very comfortable, and I used the oven it was very clean. So for us this villa was lovely, it met our needs, the view was fantastic, our son fished from the dock and caught many different varieties, and spotted a dolphin one day, the extended dock was also lovely for sun bathing on, and it was great to go out on the bikes around the island, perfect location for Esplanade and supermarket, starbucks, macdonalds, and South Joy circle is a lovely quiet little cul de sac, and we would be happy to return to the same villa again.

Great home....needs lots of work

  • 3 of 5

First let me say that the owner is a lovely person. Also, this is a beautiful home. However, it is in need of attention. The house is run down and it is dirty. Not dirty on the surface but needs a deep cleaning. There was an inch of dust, dirt and a used tissue behind the nightstand. The toilets are filthy under the rim causing a bad smell. Also, there was soap scum on the 2nd bedroom tub that we had to clean. The outside kitchen also a mess complete with a cockroach in one of the drawers.. There is mold on the grout lines in the master bath and in the broken ice maker in the kitchen. All of the light switches, in addition to being broken were filthy. The pool has a dirty black ring mark around the edge that is easily cleanable. The master bath shower has limited hot water and takes over 5 minutes to just get it warm.

With respect to repairs, the home needs a handyman to go through and restore it to its previous glory. The pool has many cracked tiles and cracked concrete. The filter was not working properly so we had to skim the pool every time we used it.The screen on the enclosure has cuts in it and the metal frame is deteriorating. The outside kitchen is completely unusable. The cabinets are falling apart and the built in grill is broken. The owner added a BBQ grill but that too was dirty.

The inside kitchen was just as bad. Cabinets have seen better days, ice machine broken and growing mold, broken built in microwave oven that was replaced with a countertop oven. Other appliances were old and outdated. We used a pan to make eggs and it had been put away dirty!!!

The TV and the couch in the family room were very nice however, I was looking for the remote and stuck my hand in between the cushions and pulled up a wad of crumbs, dirt and hair and almost got sick. We were asked to take out the garbage, which was overflowing from the prior guests but we didn't mind. Once picked up, we brought the cans back in and once again almost vomited. The insides have not been cleaned for months, or ever. They need to be power washed badly!

This home has a lot of potential, it just needs someone to care for it. I am sorry for having to write this but I do wish someone had written an honest review before me, then our vacation would have been more enjoyable. I have nothing against the owner as we think she is a very nice person.

Just returned from a fantastic stay on Marco Island. Ulla's communication was brilliant from start to finish and it was comforting to have such a lovely owner to rent from. Marlene who is the local contact was extremely helpful. The house was superb - lovely kitchen, outside BBQ, bikes, beach stuff, loads of pool towels, fishing rods, excellent laundry facilities. Loved the master bedroom - spacious & comfortable. The view was outstanding. Kids so happy fishing off the deck - we were so lucky to see dolphins swimming right under the deck, beautiful. The moment we arrived we felt calm, relaxed & perfectly at home - the signs of a great rental! Great location - sent kids off to Winn Dixies as max 10 mins walk. Cycled to Tigertail but drove to South Beach as way too hot otherwise. Easy access to Naples - loved Lowdermilk Beach. Naples Zoo really well done & staff v informative. We loved Marco & when, rather than if, we go back Ulla's property will be the only one for us!

Tranquility in paradise. Better than the photos

  • 5 of 5

my family of four from England spent an idyllic week in Ulla's house right on the waterfront in Marco. The open water views and pool area were fantastic. She has stylishly kilted out this house in Swedish style with all the American mod cons. Very open plan and modern and everything provided. We particularly loved the deck area for sunbathing and fishing. We caught catfish, grunts, lady fish, pin fish, snapper, sheets head, blue crab etc. walked to Tiger Tail beach to view the sunset. went to Naples and also had a great trip on Speedy SpedBoats in the Everglades. Fab breakfasts at Doreen's nearby. Ulla provded excellent communications and we had no issues at all. Would love to return to this house again one day. Supermarkets and restaurants nearby xxx

Wondeful relaxing week

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned home from a great week in this beautiful home. It is decorated so nice and was very spacious and clean. The pool is very large and we spent a lot of time swimming. The kitchen was wonderful and had everything you would need to make a meal and nice grill on the lania to BBQ. The water views are wonderful. You can walk to banks and shops. The owner was very easy to work with. Won't hesitate to book with her again.
