About Donna Levitz

Two brothers own the house. One lives in NYC and the other in Chappaqua, NY. Both families have children and spend their Christmas holiday together in Maunder Paradise.

Donna Levitz purchased this house in 1988

Why Donna Levitz chose Marco Island

This house is the happiest place on earth. It is gorgeous inside and out. It is full of fun. The view is magnificent, and a beautiful short walk or bike ride to the beach. The house is one of a kind. Art deco on the outside, and fun yet practical decor on the inside.

What makes this house unique

The house is on the bay, with a heated pool and spa and a brand new boat slip with lift. Amazing location, walking distance to Tigertail Beach. Great house, pool, spa, kitchen, and patio. No need ever to leave the house.

Stunning Home !!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been looking at photographs of this beautiful house for months and when we finally arrived it took our breath away. The exterior is cool and chic and so different from anything else on the island. The interior decor is stylish and homely and so far removed from the normal minimalist holiday rental. The house has so many extras which enhance the experience, including use of the owners lap top - unheard of !! The kitchen is wonderful and fully equipped. A master bedroom so unique with a stunning view across the bay. Everyone loved the pool and patio area - my breakfasts will never be the same again... Marco is a relaxed island and the house is in a lovely residential area with all amenities close by and wildlife in abundance.

We rented a boat, twice, from Rose Marina - who I recommend - to explore deserted beaches, gather shells and swim in the warm Gulf of Mexico.

Special thanks to Donna for letting us stay in her beautiful home and to Lynn, the house manager, for being so helpful when we had a small problem with the A/C.

Really sad to leave - but wonderful memories.

A truly stunning home.

Lovely property but outside areas due for some TLC

  • 4 of 5

Initial impressions excellent but later spoiled by finding ripped sheet on the bed and badly stained pillows, these were quickly replaced with new items as soon as I complained. Outside covered area was spoiled by dirty furniture and a ripped roof canopy that let the rain pour in. Pool surrounds breaking up and got worse each time the gardener used his leaf blower when more pieces would blow off. Despite all this the location and the interior still make it an excellent rental and I'm sure the above points will be rectified.

Owner's Response: We take great pride in our home and have a fabulous house manager who (as noted) addressed the renter's issues immediately. The minor damage to the canopy described in this review was caused by a powerful storm the week before the renter's date of stay. We have replaced the canopy and the house and pool area are in excellent condition.

The most amazing well equipped house - ever!

  • 5 of 5

Have rented on Marco 3 times before, all great homes but this is something else. It had absolutely everything you could possibly need (with all the instruction manuals as well). Very comfortable, spacious, quiet location good pool amazing view.

We're able to accommodate an early arrival, owners communication was outstanding.

Without doubt this is the best home that I have ever rented.

Best vacations

  • 5 of 5

Our best vacations ever. The house is fantastic, beautiful and very well equipped, it has everything you need. The main room made me want to stay there forever with that amazing view of the bay. The kitchen has top of line appliances. My kids loved the patio and the swimming pool.

Marco Island is a very quiet and relaxing place, and this house is prefectly located in Collier Bay. I really recharged my batteries this week.

Thanks to Lynn for being always available for any requirement.

We can't wait to get back there again!

the photos and description does not do this vacation rental justice

  • 5 of 5

You have to see it and experience it to believe it. Private, clean, extremely well kept and managed, delightfully quirky in its decor, a perfect retreat for a couple wanting a private getaway. There were so many extras we did not even anticipate. Very special thank you to Donna (owner) and Lynn (manager) who were unbelievably easy, organized, helpful and an absolute pleasure to deal with. We had only a brief, last-minute week to enjoy this.We have already planned our return next year.

Awesome Home ! Great vacation !

  • 5 of 5

This home has everything you need and provides all the comforts of home. The kitchen is well equipped. The pool is large and has plenty of deck surround. The master suite is like no other...so roomy and beautiful!The home is in a beautiful residential area yet close to restaurants and shopping. Marco Island has some fantastic restaurants with the Snook Inn being one of our favorites. We rented a boat from Isles of Capri Marina which i would highly recommend. Would love to rent this home again!!! (Donna the owner is lovely to work with!)
