Beautifully cared for and wonderfully equipped

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 9, including three small children, rented Amber Skies for a week, and a wonderful week it was. We so appreciated the immaculate house and pool, the excellent beach and pool equipment and, for a family that likes cooking in, the well-equipped kitchen. One reason we chose the home was its location. Walking to the beach or mini-golf, riding the bikes to Mackle Park or kayaking the canals was ever so much nicer than having to drive everywhere. We would very much like to return!

Outstanding in every way!

  • 5 of 5

This perfectly appointed house has a beautiful pool, great fishing/boating dock and a fantastic layout for an all-adult family trip like ours. Every amenity is yours to use (kayaks, beach chairs, bikes, games). The location is ideal....just a few short blocks to the beach, restaurants and shopping. We would definitely stay here again!

Exquisite and immaculate

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our 3 boys rented Amber Skies for this past week. The house is as exquisite as the pictures. Everything was absolutely immaculate. We chose to rent this house particularly because my son has severe allergies and the description spoke of things being hypoallergenic. Everything definitely was! Omar and Kellie met us at the house and we were even able to get in a little early. They truly love this house and it shows! In addition to the cleanliness of the house, it is stocked with everything you would need (aside from food). However, there are even condiments and various other staples that are in the pantry. And even a bottle of wine from Omar and Kellie! My boys had a blast fishing all week! They couldn't wait to wake up each morning and head to the dock. We kayaked a couple times and loved that as well. There are so many beautiful shells that can be found on various islands that you can kayak to. It is a very easy walk to the beach (even my 4 yr old was able to do it) and EVERYTHING is at the house for an ideal beach day! We had an absolutely wonderful trip and hope to return!

Once again, a fantastic vacation in this lovely house.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second 3 week vacation in this property, and once again it fully lived up to our expectations.

Kelle and Omar met us at the house with the keys, despite our late arrival, and Kelle being nine months pregnant! Amber Skies was spotlessly clean, and very well equipped. Unlike some other rental properties, it shows no signs of becoming "tired" or "too well used". Instead there are obvious signs of continual upgrades. For instance, since our last visit there is a new fridge, a new oven, and a second kayak. I also noticed some lovely new multi coloured drinking glasses in the kitchen.

I cannot fault the interior of the house, or the attention to detail by Omar and Kelle.

We have stayed on Marco Island for many years, in many properties, and this is definitely our favourite. It has all you want plus more inside the house, and is in a brilliant location. A 10 minute stroll to the beach - perfect for early morning shelling, and then back again in the evening to watch the glorious sunsets.

Also, the most amazing thing.... a herd of 6 manatees swimming around and under the dock one morning. So close that we could see the barnacles on their backs. One lifted its nose out of the water and appeared to look right at us. We have some great photos. From the dock we also saw a couple of dolphins, a large jellyfish, and many fish. Add in the herons and pelicans, and it is like a nature trail in the backyard!

We have already booked to return next year.

Finally, many congratulations to Omar and Kelle on the birth of their baby son xx

Amazing villa, perfect location, fab hosts = wonderful holiday with lots of memories

  • 5 of 5

Never have we been to such an amazing villa, high spec throughout, spacious and very well equipped, Omar and Kelle have thought of everything. The little touches of wine, fruit, items in the store cupboard and fridge, bathroom items etc were much appreciated. The location was perfect, you could walk to the beach, shops and restaurants. Having kayaks to use and all the equipment you could need for a day on the beach was fab. So many happy memories created on this holiday, it was wonderful from start to finish. Would definitely recommend to anyone (indeed already have!) wanting to holiday in Marco Island. Will definitely be back. Diolch yn fawr iawn

Fantastic Family Vacation(Best Rental Yet!)

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults ranging from ages 27 - 63 enjoyed our time in this property. There are many great features about this property as other reviews have mentioned, so I will try to highlight our favorite things!

1) Location: I had many houses saved and after driving by all of them during our time here, this house is in the BEST location. Very convenient to the beach (2 accesses) as well as shops and restaurants. Additionally, very nice and quiet neighborhood.

2) Owners: Omar and Kellee truly care about your experience and their home. I greatly appreciated their prompt responses to questions prior to our arrival and during our stay. LOVED that they were there to greet us upon check-in and explain everything. Additionally, they provided us fresh fruit and a delicious bottle of red wine. Lastly, there is a very detailed binder in the house with lots of information.

3) Layout/Cleanliness: The house is very well laid out and was large enough to give everyone privacy, yet at the same time great family living spaces to be together. The house is immaculate and we appreciate that. I couldn't find one dirty spot!

4) Ameneties: The pool was amazing and we spent a lot of time here. Lots of pool toys and floats. The bikes were fantastic and we all rode them! We had a lot of fun riding the bikes around the neighborhoods or to breakfast and to the beach. (There are many burrowing owls in the neighborhood - so neat to see!). The kayaks were great, another great opportunity to see the island from a different perspective. We had fun playing pool and at times it was difficult to pull the men away from the thousands of tv channels! The beach gear is fantastic and the cart is super helpful! Our group of adults even took all of the sand toys to the beach and made sandcastles.

5) Summary: The only thing that could have made this stay better would have been a private butler to make us cold drinks! There is not one thing I can complain about. We hope to be staying here in the future when we return to Marco Island.

Tips - fav restaurants: Islnd Gypsy Bar and Grille, Lee Bee Fish Company, Bebe IceCream, Kane (@Marriott)

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a great review. We love the way you broke it down and gave some insight to what it is like staying at our home. We loved the part of the sand castles 😂 and we also love watching the owls! We are still telling everyone about how talented and thoughtful your mother-in-law is. Please thank her again for knitting our house gifts! We loved them! 😊 Omar and Kelle
