Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Marco Island - 856 Swan

A home away from home

Looking for a peaceful and private destination? Here is the answer! Enjoy the privacy and comfort of your own vacation property on a short and quiet street, only a short walk to Marco's South Beach entrance.

The property features a spacious living room, a TV room, three bedrooms, two bathrooms with custom tile flooring throughout the entire house, a screened-in private heated pool and lanai with a propane grill, central air, and all the amenities to make your stay comfortable and relaxing.

This house is very roomy, 1,600 square feet under air and in immaculate condition. We have just completed a significant interior renovation including kitchen appliances and granite counter and vanity tops, new tile flooring throughout the living area, new moldings, big screen TV and also a high speed internet.

The pool area faces west, providing maximum exposure. pool and beach accessories are available for your use.

Full size washer and dryer, two- car garage ,and board games for the family.

The master bedroom is furnished with a king-size bed, private bathroom, cable TV, and sliders going out to the pool area. Bedroom two has a queen-size bed. Bedroom three has two twin beds. All linens, pillows, blankets and towels are provided as well as a fully equipped kitchen. Unique to this property is the organic herb garden. Additionally, the buds of the lemons and limes are coming out and the roses are blooming. Please help yourself. There will be more photos to come as we start to hang our art work.

Located on the south end of Marco Island, this property is 5 minutes walk to one of the two public beaches on Marco. Many properties advertise their proximity to the beach, but it is of little benefit without beach access. You are also a short walk to shops, movies, restaurants. This is a perfect location for your vacation!

The Marco and Naples area offers everything from picturesque and challenging golf courses, both backwater and gulf fishing, boating, jet skiing, parasailing, Everglades escapes, snorkeling and fine and or casual dining experiences to match all of your taste buds. Marco Island offers shelling, gulf swimming and beautiful sunsets.

A year-round vacation destination!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

The four of us stayed in this lovely home for a week and had a great time! The home was very clean, well organized and equipped! Susan made us feel very welcome and provided extras that made our visit more comfortable. The pool was a great size and the pool area very nice. We would definitely come back!

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 3 couples from frigid Minnesota rented this property in early March. The pictures posted are great...but truly do not do justice to the fabulous accommodations and cleanliness that we found. We have rented five houses previous to this one in Marco Island and this one was the absolute best. The furniture, dishes, cooking utensils, towels, etc...were all top-notch. The herb garden was fun to use as we grilled out many times throughout the week. We loved the beach cart as it held all the coolers, beach bags, fishing rods and items that we drug to the beach every day. The walk to the beach was less than 5 minutes. The most important detail regarding this rental is the owners. Susan and Doug were the best property owners we could have met. They were great hosts and worked extra hard to make sure our vacation was fabulous and free of problems. We will rent from them again in the future! Many thanks to both of them for opening this beautiful home to strangers...who now feel like friends. Marco Island is a true paradise for any vacation seeker.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed this property very much. Very well maintained and nicely furnished with everything you need. Susan and Doug accommodated all of our needs. She welcomed us and opened not only her home but her herb garden which I enjoyed in my cooking. The home is a short distance away from the beach and we were pleased with beach chairs and accessories Susan provided as well. The lanai was relaxing for morning coffee and my kids loved the pool. I highly recommend this property and we will be back!

Hated to Leave

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Susan and Doug, for providing an absolutely delightful "home away from home" for our visit to Marco Island! This property is well maintained and comfortably furnished and equipped. The lanai and pool are the perfect place to relax and enjoy the Florida sunshine. The beach is an easy 5 to 10 minute walk away, with the added bonus of burrowing owls nesting along the route. The house is laid out in a manner that allows for privacy from your fellow travelers, but also has an open, flowing living area for visiting and entertaining. Would certainly recommend this property to anyone vacationing on Marco.

Everything You Need For A GREAT Marco Vacation !

  • 5 of 5

We were there for two weeks in February. Home is immaculate and very comfortable. Great location. Walking distance to beach. Extra amenities include, beach cart with umbrella and cooler, grill, nice linens and well stocked kitchen. The lanai has a heated pool and was a lovely spot to have morning coffee or evening cocktails and dinner. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. We loved our time there and look forward to returning.
