About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, Sleeps 10

Sitting on one of the island’s largest rooftop observation decks, looking down at palm trees lining the sparkling blue water, you half expect a bus filled with tourists to pull up. No, this rooftop balcony is all yours, and so is the rest of the three-story, 5,200 square foot all-modern house.

It sleeps ten, with three queen beds, two twins and one sleeper sofa, and it comes with 3.5 bathrooms, along with an additional pool bath and a two-car garage.

When you step onto the spacious lanai and see tables overlooking the water, along with an outdoor kitchen and gas grill, you half expect a maître de to welcome you to the waterfront restaurant. No, this lanai is all yours.

The curving, custom designed heated beach entrance pool, with raised hot tub, puts you so close to the converging waterways you can hear little waves crest along the dock and seawall. The southern exposure means all-day sun shines down on the pool.

Five star luxury isn’t reserved for hotels. The exquisitely designed interior was furnished under the theory that you can’t have too much style and comfort. Natural light flows in from windows on every floor. A spiral staircase leads to a loft with stunning hardwood floors and a balcony the length of the house that gives you a panoramic view of the waterway.

The modern, well-lit kitchen features granite countertops and all the appliances and cookware you could possibly need. To add some exotic ingredients to your meals, step outside and pick some mangos, bananas or limes from the garden.

The house comes with two separate master suites with ensuite bathrooms featuring granite fixtures, French windows, walk-in showers with rain shower heads for additional comfort. Other bedrooms offer sliding door access to the lanai.

The house gives you three different cooling devices – multi-zone computerized air conditioning for precise temperature control anywhere, ceiling fans and night winds off the water. It offers more amenities than we could possibly list but here are some highlights: A state-of-the-art movie theatre. Granite topped mini bars on every floor. Five flat screen TV’s. It also gives you everything you need for the beach, including umbrella, beach chairs and a cooler.

Even doing the laundry feels somehow exotic with a washer and dryer set beside a window overlooking thick green banana plants.

And you’re just a short walk from the upscale stores and eclectic mix of restaurants in the Esplanade.

This truly is the ultimate vacation house.

Reviewer Comments:

The Joy house was beautiful and relaxing. We had 2 couple with 2 kids each and there was plenty of space for adults and kids alike. Our favorite part of the house had to be the living room opening completely onto the pool/outdoor area. There's no pool fence so you do have to keep an eye on little ones. Our only suggestion would be to upgrade the bed linens and kitchen knives.The quality of the beds was a bit disappointing given the "luxury" of the rest of the house. And the knives literally would not cut anything. We cooked every night so this was a bit of a challenge. We would definitely return, especially if those 2 small things are fixed.

Overall our stay was great! There were 9 of us sharing this house and the house was plenty big for all of us. We never felt like we were on top of each other. The house is beautiful and we had plenty of towels and dishes and furniture. We did not have a coffee pot, not sure why. Also the cooler in the garage had a broken handle and was very hard to carry. Most of the beach chairs were broken and there were only 7 of them. The pool was well heated and the hot tub was awesome! The neighbors are very quick to call the police if they hear any noise!! Watch out for this! The police came to the house 5 times and we were never given a ticket. The officers that came were very understanding and said it was probably a neighbor that does not like the rental properties and that they could not hear us while standing out front or out back. You should be OK if you move inside after 10 pm. But keep in mind that the whole house is tile and it echoes badly! If any windows are open while you are inside after 10 pm the police will get called:-( The location of the property is great! Close to grocery stores and gas stations, shopping and restaurants and bars.

The house was simply fantastic. Spacious, beautiful terrace with pool and jacuzzi. The only disadvantage was the night at 10pm. We celebrated the 50th birthday of my husband and at 22: 15h, the officer was already standing on the terrace, so we had to continue inside. The housekeeping just perfect !! The wifi did not work and after a short call it was promptly repaired. Great house, perfect care! We will definitely come back

VERY NICE SPACIOUS NEWER HOME IN MARCO ISLAND. AS DESCRIBED, GREAT LOCATION. THE ONLY NEGATIVES ARE (AS STATED NUMEROUS TIMES BEFORE)THERE ARE HARDLY ANY POTS AND PANS IN THIS HOME. WE HAD A FAMILY OF 10, AND IT WAS NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE TO COOK ANY MEALS WITH THE ITEMS IN KITCHEN. SEATING AT DINING AREA AND OUTSIDE ARE CHEAP AND NOT LARGE ENOUGH FOR LARGE FAMILIES. THESE AREAS SHOULD BE ADRESSED, AS THE HAVE BEEN MENTIONED IN SEVERAL REVIEWS. OTHER THAN THAT, WAS A GREAT NEARLY NEW MODERN HOME THAT WILL MAKE ANY VACATION IN MARCO A GREAT ONE.

Overall great house but a few drawbacks

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our visit here. The house is huge! The quality of the "bones" of the house is truly 5 star. The kitchen and bathrooms are top notch. The pool is simply outstanding and is designed perfectly. Having a bathroom right off the pool is great. We saw dolphins swim by twice in the canal behind the house. The rooftop deck is a major plus and allows for great star gazing. Theater room was great awesome (good sound system!).

Here are the drawbacks....

Police were called on us for a "noise" complaint at 8 PM. We were making just very standard pool noise (4 adults and 4 kids under age 8). Were we not cited and the officer was very annoyed to even have to come out. He said he sees it all the time. He did state that there is a new 24/7 noise ordinance on Marco Island and you can cited for noise at any time of day. Kind of a buzzkill, but we didn't have issues the rest of week.

As other reviews have mentioned, for how nice the home is, the furnishings are lacking. The kitchen table is too small for the house. They need one more couch in the living room. The bedding (especially the pillow quality) and kitchen pots and pans could be upgraded. All small things, but worth noting.

Overall, I highly recommend the house and the people at Marco Island Vacation Rentals were a pleasure to deal with. The noise issue is the only reason I am not giving it 5 stars... People need to get a life and let people have fun....
