Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in City of Marco

3 Bedroom 2 Bath Home With Heated Pool, Walk To Beach, Theatre And Restaurants

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!! This beautiful well maintained 3 bedroom/2 bath home is located a short walk to the beach, restaurants, shopping, movie theatre, ice cream parlor, mini golf and luxury resort spas. Nestled on a quiet street, it has sought after Southern exposure for both the heated pool and the canal waterfront.

Let’s talk about the back yard! Relax and enjoy our private heated salt-water pool or try your luck at fishing off the dock in the back yard canal. Bring your camera- the manatee play inches from you as they often gather in front of our dock! We have bikes, fishing poles, Wi-Fi, a pool table, DVD’s, board games, pool toys, beach chairs, beach towels, books, High Definition large flat screen TV and TV’s in every bedroom! Not to mention a washer and dryer for all that beach gear.

You can easily depart from our dock and be in the Gulf of Mexico within 10 minutes – no bridges – direct access! Rent paddleboards, kayaks or jet skis and explore the canals and bay- even launch right from the dock in the back yard.

The salt-water swimming pool is kept heated to perfection inside a screened lanai with chaise lounges, a dining table with seating for 6, pool toys and a gas grill. Salt-water pools have lower chlorine levels to be gentler on eyes and skin. Soft skin and heated pool water – ahhhh, you may need to extend another week!

Have you been inside yet? The remodeled kitchen is fully equipped with stainless appliances including refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, garbage disposal, toaster and coffee maker. Enjoy a meal on the granite breakfast bar or dine in the separate dining area.

The three bedrooms (one king size bed, one queen, and two twins) sleep six guests comfortably. In addition there is a full sized pull out couch in the family room. All towels and linens are provided. Both bathrooms have been remodeled with new tile and granite countertops (one with shower, one with shower/tub combo).

This well appointed home boasts tile throughout, with an open floor plan. Stack the rack and enjoy a game of pool, or unwind with your favorite movie on the large HDTV flat screen TV.

In case you are new to Marco a Welcome Binder greets you when you arrive. It includes useful information to make your vacation the best ever. You won’t miss anything with sightseeing, shopping and restaurants info PLUS recommendations from past vacationers about their favorite activities- we can’t wait to read your suggestions too!

We love our new home and we are sure you will too!


When we purchased this home in August 2014, it had 29 VRBO and Homeaway reviews here is a summary of some of the comments:

“Fabulous home with great location and amenities.”

“Short walk to beach and close to many restaurants.”

“Very family friendly with nice backyard pool and fishing from the dock.”

“Although the pictures are very nice, better than expected. Definitely would go back.”

“We were able to swim in the large pool while the men caught fish from the dock.”

This is just a few of the many.

And lastly:

If our home is booked, please consider another 5 star Marco Island home, which is located directly across the canal (VRBO #373606 – HomeAway #908223). For families or friends vacationing together renting both homes could be the ideal situation!

About Patricia and Daniel Lyons

Dan and I love Marco Island and look forward to spending our retirement on the island.

Patricia and Daniel Lyons purchased this house in 2014

Why Patricia and Daniel Lyons chose Marco Island

We wanted a home on Marco Island where you can walk to the beach. We were so excited when we found this home - it had everything for the perfect vacation - heated pool, pool table, waterfront, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, washer and dryer, bikes and fishing poles in the garage.

Return stay

  • 5 of 5

Still catch myself daydreaming about the wonderful times we had at our recent (return) stay in this beautiful and comfortable home. All the necessary amenities make staying here easy and relaxing. Being centrally located to the beach, restaurants, supermarkets and movie theater make venturing out simple and convenient. And even with the summer time temps high in the 90's we were able to enjoy days at the beach - with great breezes - and the refreshing pool when we returned home. Lunch overlooking the beach at Stilts is always a plus, as is dinner at Snook Inn in Old Marco on the water. This trip we ventured out to Captain Jack's for the Mangrove Airboat Tour which was lots of fun. Planning to return again and again!

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Pat and Dan,

What a wonderful home, and as the saying goes in real estate - location, location, location!! The walk to the beautiful beach, restaurants and shopping was easy, the home and pool were spotless and we can't wait to return. It was a week in paradise, from dolphin and burrowing owl sightings to the stunning sunsets. My husband enjoyed as much fishing as possible and it was easy and delicious to bring his catch to a local restaurant for dinner preparation. There are so many restaurants that offer both delicious food and spectacular views. It was so peaceful to start the day by the canal and pool to plan the daily activity. The girls enjoyed parasailing and we all enjoyed the dinner cruise, the beach, swimming at the beach, relaxing in the gulf and so much more. We can't wait to return to jet ski and try SUP. Your home is welcoming and the layout is ideal! The girls could stay up as late as they wanted (in "their wing") without disturbing us! We all enjoyed the pool table and leave Marco Island with so much fun memories and a longing to return! We're already looking at the calendar for when we can return!

Family holiday getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I so enjoyed staying in this wonderful home over the Thanksgiving holiday in 2015. We arrived and found the house in excellent condition with all the space and amenities we could possibly need. The pool was a delightfully comfortable temperature, has plenty of privacy, while still offering a view of the beach skyline for enjoying the sunset. The kitchen is spacious and easily accommodated all 5 of us vying for cooking and cocktail making counter area - not something often found in a vacation rental! And the location is perfect for access to the white sandy beach where you can rent very comfortable lounges and umbrellas by the day or week. In addition, you can enjoy lunch or a sunset drink at the open air restaurant located in the Marriott Crystal Shores complex accessible right from the beach. Perfectly wonderful experience! Walking, driving, or biking, everything is easily accessible from this location, yet the house still feels secluded and private. And the island has so much to offer in a relaxing laid-back atmosphere - great restaurants, nature walks, sunsets, peace and quiet. We plan to go back again - hopefully often, in fact!

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate enough to stay in this beautiful home the last week of October 2015. Wow! It's immaculate, roomy, very warm and inviting with beautiful decor and lovely added personal touches. Beds and furnishings were extremely comfortable, plenty of linens, towels, beach towels, beach equipment and other amenities. The house is convenient to everything, walking distance to great restaurants, convenience store, movie theater, shopping, etc, yet in a very quiet and peaceful area. The beautiful beach, with cool white powder sand and warm clear turquoise water is less than 2 blocks away. Collected some awesome seashells here!!! We loved having our breakfast poolside and often sat out there til late at night- it was soooo relaxing. To our delight, frolicking dolphins appeared the very first morning in the canal adjacent to our pool and again on the last morning. What a treat! Observed some burrowing owls that our host, Pat, had told us about. So cute! Sunsets were breathtaking and there are quite a few wonderful restaurant/bars that offer magnificent views while dining or just enjoying your Pina Colada. We tried several of the restaurants mentioned in the informative folder that we discovered in the house upon arrival. Thanks for that! We added a couple of menus and sightseeing brochures that we had found impressive. The Marco museum is very interesting- history of the island is fascinating. Loved Old Marco, it has a very tropical feel- the colorful little shops and restaurants are great...art gallery is fun. We enjoyed exploring all corners of the Island. And last but not least, we found EVERYONE so VERY friendly and helpful...this is truly a Happy Island!! We hope to come back very soon. Thank you for sharing your beautiful house!!

Amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a week at the end of August 2015. The house is amazing with all the essentials and gadgets at home and is like a home away from home. The neighborhood is very quiet and well kept. Everything is immaculately clean, modern and in pristine condition. We went in the warm clean pool daily (sometimes multiple times per day it was that relaxing), walked to the beach (house has all sorts of beach toys, chairs, umbrella etc), used the bicycles a few times to explore the area, and also took a jet ski and air boat tours (which were each about a half hour away.) If you don't feel like driving EVERYTHING is within walking distance; stores, restaurants, beach, bar, touristy shops etc. I would definitely stay here again and wish I could live here!

We had a great vacation stay at this house. Location was great - close to beach - could walk or ride bikes provided. Very clean and comfortable. The furnishings were very nice. Everything you could want. The pool was especially nice! Close to all restaurants and shopping. We would definitely stay again!
