Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in City of Marco - Tigertail Beach Beauty

4 bedroom, 2 bath canal house - short walk to Tigertail Beach

Ask for Discounts in September and October

This is a beautiful and fun 4 bedroom - 2 bathroom detached house just 4 houses from Tigertail Beach entrance with its playground, snack bar, and multiple beach amenities. An easy walk for the whole family to the shallow inlet and across the dunes to the beautiful gulf coast. The house has a Master bedroom with king bed and en-suite bath with walk in shower and large separate soaking tub. Three (3) other bedrooms on the other side of the house consist of 2 queen beds and 2 twin beds. These share another bath with double vanity and large shower. The den has a queen sleeper sofa for two additional family members or the occasional visitor. The house is equipped with linens, towels, beach chairs, beach towels, toys, and coolers; all you need to bring are your own personal items. There are TVs in all 4 bedrooms, the kitchen, living room, and den with DVR on three of the systems so you can watch all your shows on the occasional rainy day.

The house has a large fully equipped kitchen with dining area for 8 and another table on the lanai for 6 just outside the sliding doors. The living room opens to the lanai with a large 3 panel sliding door which connects the inside with the outside for great get-togethers. There is also a separate den with large TV. The house has a 12x18 foot heated pool and Jacuzzi under a screened lanai overlooking a wide water canal. There is an outdoor dining area and a gas barbecue for outdoor dining. The lanai also has an outdoor shower for washing the beach sand off. This all overlooks the large dock and 10,000 lb boat lift. You can fish off the dock or sit and watch the manatees and dolphins.

The house is convenient to all activities; shopping and dining are a short bicycle ride away (1 mile); beach activities are a short walk (.2 miles), and theaters, putt-putt golf, grocery stores, museums, boat rentals and tours, and tennis, are all on the island. The Everglades with its eco-tours and Naples with the delights of 5th Avenue are only a short drive away.

Reservations and payments are handled by a local Marco Island property management firm. They are located less than 1 mile from the house and will respond promptly if any issues arise during your stay.

About Bruce Donaldson

Virginia couple planning life after work and willing to share this beautiful house for a couple of years while we tie up lose ends and plan our escape south.

Bruce Donaldson purchased this house in 2014

Why Bruce Donaldson chose Marco Island

Marco Island is a beautiful location and this house is in one of the the most beautiful neighborhoods on the island. Few houses are closer to a Marco Island beach.

What makes this house unique

Short 5 minute walk to Tigertail beach inlet, snack bar, and playground. Another 5 minutes to the seldom crowded gulf beach and bird sanctuary.

So relaxing, great house in great location!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a week and loved it! It is well represented in the photos and nicely appointed. It was very clean when we arrived. Everything you need to cook is available, plenty of linens and towels. There were only 2 of us so we had PLENTY of room. We had overnight guests 2 nights and it was perfect for entertaining. The location is easy walking distance to the entrance to the beach. If you haven't been on this end of Marco Island before, please note that there is a long walk to the actual ocean but very doable. Tigertail Beach is very nice and beautifully maintained with snack bar (great food), playground, parking, kayak and paddle board rentals BUT it is not on the ocean, it's on a lagoon which is perfect for young children and activities. To get to the ocean you walk around through an expansive beach area or wade through the lagoon (just below hips at highest point). It was quick and easy to do that but if you have a lot of gear (chairs, coolers, little kids etc.) it can be tricky. If you walk around with lots of stuff, I would drive and park at the end of the lot and walk from there. BUT, with the wonderful pool and dock at the house you don't have to spend all day at the beach. I walked the ocean beach in the morning for exercise, then we relaxed by the pool most of the day, then we took an afternoon walk through the lagoon and down to the less traveled AMAZING north end of ocean beach. Lovely vacation.

Beautiful house where you can walk to the beach

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house. The pictures are exactly how the house looks. The company that took care of the property for the owners were great. We had a few issues that were addressed immediately. I would recommend this house. We had unseasonable high temperatures so the weather was great. We were never at Marco before and we couldn't believe the variety and amount of shells you can find walking on Tigertail Beach. Sand dollars were everywhere too but plan for a long walk. For new comers, you walk through a lagoon to get to the beach which we had never seen before. It was so nice to stay at this house because you can walk to Tigertail. Anyone who drives pays a daily rate. Also, if you plan to out to dinner make reservations. Thanks for a great week.

Beautiful house, great location just a short walk to park/beach. Very spacious with everything you could ask for already at the house. Couldn't have been happier with the stay whole family enjoyed! Pool and hot tub were a huge plus with outdoor shower to wash off from the beach. Wonderful kitchen with professional grade cookware. Would recommend to anyone!

Room for Family and Friends

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house in July of 2015. It was hot! But it is Florida, so expected :) We had two families with over 5 kids. The house had plenty of space for all and was well appointed and included all the amenities a vacationing group needs. The location to Tigertail beach is awesome as is the adventure through the lagoon to get there! Easy walk and the kids loved it. A 20min walk or just a few minutes by bike and you are at some of the best restaurants and bars on Marco. The kids were in the pool by 7am every morning and you can watch the dolphins swim through the canal out back. We fished from the dock and caught a few using a couple of the rods in the garage. Will be coming back to Marco and definitely staying at this house again.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

This house was home away from home! It is spacious and comfortable. It has a fully equipped kitchen, linens for beds, beach and bath towels, bikes, pool toys, and plenty of storage to unpack. It is close to grocery stores and waterside restaurants. It is a 5 minute walk to the beach or you can enjoy the house pool. This is the best vacation home we have ever stayed in!
