The screened in lanai is ideally suited to sunny breakfasts by the pool, comfortable shade for dining, or just relaxing in the afternoon and evening. Grill dinner on the lanai or dine out at Marco Islands' many fabulous restaurants.

The southern exposure heated pool ensures all day fun in the sun. A solar pool cover keeps the heated pool toasty warm during the cooler months. The living room, master bedroom and 2 guest bed rooms all have new LCD/LED flat screen TVs and DVD players. The separate dining room has seating for 6 and the kitchen table seats 4. The family room can be enjoyed by the kids while the adults enjoy private time in the separate living room. Plenty of board games are provided as well as 3 bicycles for your use and enjoyment.

The master bedroom is located on the other side of the house and overlooks the pool and canal. It has a luxurious queen bed, a full bath with a separate shower and bathtub, walk in closet and a private entrance to the pool via sliding glass doors. The two guest bedrooms and a guest full bath are located on the other side of the house. The one guest bedroom also has a luxurious queen bed and view of the canal via sliding glass doors.

Dolphin and Manatee frequent the canal and many species of fish can be caught off the new dock. Snook lights and cleaning station are a highlight. You also have the option of bringing your own boat or renting one and mooring it at your own personal dock. A full laundry room and two plus car garage complete the experience. Wireless Internet included.

With its easy access to the Gulf of Mexico, you can be enjoying the clear beautiful waters of the Gulf in minutes or boat on over to one of the great restaurants and have dinner. All this can be done right from your own back yard!

Marco Island is six miles long and four miles wide, with over 50 locally owned and operated restaurants. There is a movie theater, miniature golfing, shopping and beautiful white sand beaches only minutes away. Day trips to the everglades are really fun as is a boat trip on the Key West Express right from the Marco Marina. Sunset dinner cruises are also enjoyable.

About Terri

We live in the greater Detroit metropolitan area but our hearts set with the sun each night on Marco Island. We know you will love Marco Island as much as we do.

Terri purchased this house in 2013

Why Terri chose Florida South Gulf Coast

We fell in love with Marco Island when we visited back in 2012. The beaches are gorgeous and we love walking the beach and watching sunsets. We enjoy sitting on the lanai watching the sunrise in the morning while enjoying our coffee. There is plenty of room on the spacious lanai to relax at the private pool while enjoying the sunshine during the day. Watching the boats go by and seeing dolphin and manatee in the canal are a few of the many reasons we chose this house. The house is spacious and there is plenty of room for us to relax and enjoy when we visit. The canal is extra wide and from the lanai and house we enjoy long waterway views of the canal. The extra wide canal makes it very easy to park a boat at the dock,

What makes this house unique

We are boaters and within 10 minutes we can be on the Marco River and the Gulf of Mexico. We love the fact that finding the house by boat is easy and gulf access is quick. We also enjoy the privacy on the lanai offered by the beautiful palms and the long waterway views.

Yes - you can dock your boat at the house. It is super easy to dock a boat for even the novice boater as the canal is extra wide. Within minutes you can be on the wide waters of the Marco River, visit the beaches, or fish the 10,000 islands. Per Marco Island ordinance boat trailers may not be stored in driveways or street. The local marinas will store your trailer for a nominal fee. Kayak rentals on Marco Island for you to enjoy - have them delivered right to the house!

Lovely vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This house was immaculate upon our arrival, and well stocked with everything we needed for beach and pool, and the gas grill worked well for dinners. It was so relaxing sitting out by the pool watching boats go by and reading a book. We had never rented a house before and I am SO glad we did; all three of our kids ended up sick so while they slept off their cold, we were able to sit and read in the sun. It was such a relief not to be trapped in a hotel room. It's a lovely setting. We did not get to explore Marco since our kids were sick, but our "staycation" in this home was lovely. Thank you for having us!

Owner's Response: Thank you for noticing how clean and well stocked the house is! We recently purchased the new Weber grill and are glad you were able to enjoy it for your dinners. Isn’t renting a home wonderful?! I’m sorry to hear your children were ill while vacationing yet we are happy you were still able to enjoy the large lanai relaxing and reading. You will need to come back to Marco so you can explore our beautiful island – and we hope you stay with us again.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for my family which consisted of my husband and I, two adult children and two teens. They enjoyed fishing off the dock and we brought kayaks and our boat. Definitely would recommend this home.

nice house on Marco Island

  • 5 of 5

This spacious 3 bedroom home was filled with amenities and spotless clean. The pool is surrounded by a lot of deck space containing tables and chairs and totally enclosed by screens. The home sits on one of the many waterways on Marco Island, permitting access via boat, kayak, etc. The garage contains lots of beach toys, floats, bicycles, etc. The beach is less than 10 minutes away. The everglades and cypress parks are within an hour drive.

Owner's Response: Thank you! We take pride in the cleanliness of our house. We also continue to fill our house with lots of amenities to make our guests stay more enjoyable. We love that we are so close to the beach yet we can also enjoy the waterway in our own backyard. There is nothing better than relaxing on the lanai and watching the boats and kayakers.

Absolutely LOVED this property & would love to return again!! Wonderful location on a quiet dead end street. The pool was the perfect temp with the warmer & it's gradual decline to a deep end gave ample room to dive in too. Loved floating like a lilly pad watching the stars at night. Was able to catch fish w/ the items there too. The rental kayaks were brought to the dock for us too. And the beach amenities proved good use too for a couple days at the beach. Beautiful home!!!!!

Excellent Home - Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Marco Island for a family vacation. This home was an excellent choice. From the time we contacted the property owner to the time we returned home, every email/phone call was prompt, professional and personal. Terri & Mark take pride in their home and it shows. As a bit of a clean freak, it was a pleasure to see even the ceiling fan blades were dusted!! That's attention to detail. The house is comfortable and enough space for our family of 6 to spread out. Every switch was labeled so there was no guessing which switch worked what. The beds were very comfortable (not the usual rental beds) and there were plenty of linens/towels. Having the washer and dryer (large capacity) was a huge help too. The pool was perfect - seating in the shade (with morning sun), pool in the sun for the majority of the day. The dock was great for fishing. We only caught cat fish, but it was a lot of fun. Off the dock we saw a dolphin, sea snake and even had a very up close visit from a snowy egret that was nearly 4 foot tall! The location of the house was in a quiet neighborhood close enough for a quick ride to the ocean and Tiger's Tail beach. We all paddle boarded multiple mornings at Tiger's Tail. The house had 4 bikes (with helmets) which we used locally, fishing gear and pool/beach items. With the usual afternoon Florida shower, we had 2 amazing rainbows thanks to the setting sun. All in all - a perfect vacation by the best hosts. Thank you Terri and Mark for a wonderful time.

Owner's Response: Diana, Thank you for your excellent review. We always try to be helpful to our guests to ensure they have a great rental experience. Thank you for noticing how clean the house is – I too am a “clean freak”. The house is very spacious inside and out for a family of 6 to enjoy the lanai, pool and dock. Glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to having you and your family back again soon.
