Marco Island is the perfect vacation getaway for friends and family. Restaurants and shopping nearby.
Bill & Katie's home is a wonderful family option if you want to get away and relax. Our children are 11 & 15 and we were able to rent bikes and ride anywhere we wanted to go on the island. The pool and hot tub make for a great way to end each day. The kids really enjoyed fishing right in the backyard. This house has everything you need to enjoy a terrific vacation.
I stayed at this property for 2 weeks in Jan '16 with my wife and two young children. We travelled over from the UK.
First things first, the hosts are amazing. I'm not sure there is any length that Bill wouldn't go to in order to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. Our kids were 2yrs and 8mths at the time of the trip and Bill arranged for a travel cot (pack & play), high chair, and even erected a pool fence so that we didn't have to worry about them wandering / crawling off into the back garden. They even provided some childrens toiletries so we really were able to hit the ground running.
In terms of the property itself, it is well situated being only a very short drive from the main attractions and amenities of Marco. The internal layout works very well as the kitchen, dining area, and lounge are all open plan. This gives the space a natural flow meaning that you use the whole area. Previous rentals we've had in south Florida were possibly bigger in sq. ft. terms, but so much of that space goes unused....i for one I have no need for a 2nd lounge or study when I'm on vacation!
The kitchen was well appointed with nice new appliances and the complimentary coffee was a welcome start each morning. The bedrooms were all nice and of a good size. The en-suite shower in particular was fantastic as it was big enough to get everyone in for post-swim ablusions.
The external areas are great, the pool is a nice size and lovely and warm. We also used the hottub which was a nice bonus in which to enjoy an evening glass of wine. I particularly like fishing and I'm happy to say I was able to enjoy many a relaxed hour willing the little blighters to bite on my shrimp (best value shrimp are from Walker's Hideaway Marina, 3 mins drive away). I wouldn't say it's the most prolific fishing I've encountered but it was Jan and the weather was somewhat changeable which doesn't help. In any event, I caught an interesting range of fish including a sea trout, snapper, jacks, a puffer fish, and sheep's head, one of which was big enough to donk on the head and feed the family that evening!
All in all, we really enjoyed staying at this property and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to stay in Marco.
Random tip for travellers with young kids....forget about tiger-tail beach as the walk from the car park to the waterside is very very long. We found it was better to drive 20 mins to Lowdermilk Beach in Naples. Better parking, food, and facilities.
Wonderful rental property. It is not just a rental. There are a lot of nice details. Pool, plush towels, quiet, comfortable beds, stocked kitchen, convenient to everything and too much more to mention. Bill even called to check on us while there. You can't go wrong staying here.
A beautiful and well maintained home equipped with everything you need. Thank you very much Bill and Kate for letting us stay in your house and making sure that we had everything we needed.
We had a great time in this beautiful, updated home. The amenities were wonderful and the house was CLEAN! The owners were very helpful and friendly. Should we return to Marco, we would stay in this home again.
The best rental home we ever stayed in!
Personal and just like coming home, this is not just another rental from a corp. Bill and his wife has made this house into a little jewel with all comfort needed.
We just loved it!
This is a waterfront property with fishing right from the dock. Bring your own boat and dock it behind the house while you are here. There are two boat rental marinas within a mile of the house.
