About Owner/Property Manager

We live in Wisconsin near the sandy shores of Lake Michigan but mid-winter we long for the sandy shores of Florida where my Mother winters. Married for 48 years, we have 2 beautiful daughters, great son-in-laws, and 5 of the most amazing grandchildren ranging from 11-19. We are blessed!

Owner/Property Manager purchased this house in 2013

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Florida South Gulf Coast

We found Marco Island a few years ago and knew that we would own a home on the island someday and this year was the 'someday'. My mother Roberta decided that she would like to partner with us in this venture. The location is perfect! Close to the beaches for me and the girls and close to the best fishing in Florida for Skip and the boys.

What makes this house unique

Fish and crab from the Tiki Hut dock. We have a boat lift if you have a boat (or you can rent one). It is just a 5 minute boat ride to Robert's Bay for great Tarpon fishing and 10 more minutes out to open water. 1 mile to South Beach for swimming or shelling. Heated waterfall pool and spa and poolside ping pong table for fun. The location is superb and the main reason we chose this house.

Needs some freshening up.

  • 3 of 5

Overall nice location, the property manager was awesome to work with. The description was a little off. It is not within walking distance to the beach, things were pretty worn, especially the beach things and the furniture and we had to do our own cleaning when we arrived. The pool is great to have an very clean, patio furniture quite dated.

Loved Marco Island so that made the small issues bareable.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review Katheine and your kind remarks about our property manager. As far as the cleanliness of our home we take great pride in having it sparkling clean and that is why we offered to get in the cleaning service to have it done again for you. As you know we did replace them as they did not clean to our standard. The beach is exactly one mile which is explained in our write up and salt water is horrible on beach chairs and umbrellas especially when they are not rinsed off after use. Lynn ran out immediately to purchase brand new ones for your use that you failed to mention. I am sorry that you were not that thrilled but as you can see this is the first bad review we have received in 4 years and we do strive to offer our home in great condition

House had everything we needed...

  • 4 of 5

The two conditions we had when looking to rent a house on Marco were: Had to be on a canal because we wanted to rent a boat for a few days and 2nd, it had to have a pool. This house easily met both of these conditions at a great price.

Even though their boat was on the lift, there was still plenty of room to dock the boat we rented. While I wouldn't say the fishing from their property was fantastic, we did manage to catch some mangrove snapper, catfish and a big skate. Anyone looking to rent a boat and fish, I would suggest the southern part of the island, which is where this house is, because it's fairly easy to get to some good spots quickly and one of the only bait shops on the island is close.

The screened in pool area was fantastic, especially since part of it is covered. Made it easy to get out of the sun and to remain dry when the afternoon storms rolled in. We ate dinner down there numerous times. The only negative is that there is no bathroom down there, so have to climb the stairs if you have to go.

I would not recommend this house to any elderly that have a hard time going up stairs or small children that are not comfortable yet navigating stairs. If I remember correctly, there are around 15-20 stairs to get from the house down to the pool. Public beach is only a short drive and since it was off season, we had no trouble parking. Also short drive to one of the only bait shops/marina on the southern end where you can fish and see plenty of dolphin. They were there every day.

Owners were very responsive and easy to get a hold of through email and text messages.

The only reason I didn't give this house 5 stars is because we did see quite a few ants during our stay. They had numerous traps out so seems like they are trying to control them. However, I wouldn't let that cause you to shy away.

Fantastic place! Marcia and Skip were great to work with and took care of all our needs. Wonderful people, so caring. The house was very clean and perfect for our family. We used the grill frequently. The kitchen was well stocked.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words. It was a pleasure having your family. You were very gracious and kind in the midst of some unplanned repair work. We look forward to seeing you again this year as planned. Skip and Marcia

Great villa in a prime location, everything you need here for a perfect holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Villa is really lovely and location is perfect. We had a fantastic holiday here, hiring a boat for a day and doing an Everglades tour. Naples is definitely worth a visit with great restaurants.

Everything you could need in a villa is provided and we loved using the bikes to pop to the local shops. Hammock was also lovely to relax in out by the dock.

Would definitely return as all of us had a great time and would recommend for families with children of all ages as we had a 6 year old up to 20 year olds.

Put your feet up, stay a while and relax!

  • 5 of 5

There was nothing we could ask for that was not already there. Tiki covered waterfront hammock, refreshing pool with hot tub, CLEAN house with everything you have at home. You feel like you belong there as soon as you open the door and walk in.

We would like to welcome you to our beautiful Key West style home on Marco Island the ultimate destination...a place to do as much or as little as you want. The house is white bright and close to everything the island has to offer. Enjoy our heated spa and pool, fish for snook, trout and reds from our dock or ask about using our lift if you bring your own boat.

We are situated on a quiet street within walking distance or take a short bike ride to one of the pristine white sand beaches that seem endless for beachgoers and shelling enthusiests.

Don't forget to take in one of the unbelievable sunsets.

We are very close to Mackle Park for walking, bocci ball, shuffle board, basketball courts and more.

Lastly, the island is small enough to quickly learn your way around and filled with excellant restaurants and lots of fun things to do....we would be happy to make recommendations or just go exploring and have FUN.

THANK YOU FOR STAYING IN OUR HOME.
