Overview

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.

Reviewer Comments:

We visit Marco for 2 weeks every year and would eventually love to purchase a home on the island! This is one of the best homes we have rented to date! There were 8 of us in our party and we had so much space we could have had more! The house is large with a great lay out! The lanai is huge, pool and hot tub great! The view from the lanai, the 2nd floor balconies and the roof top was amazing! We had a few dolphins visit the canal. The kids enjoyed fishing off the dock. The outdoor furniture could definitely use some upgrading, most of the chairs were rusted as was the table. We would have definitely made more use of the 2nd floor and roof top balconies had there been more furniture to sit and enjoy it. The beds were comfortable. The pull out was broken so we did take the mattress and one person in the party put it on the floor in the "movie room". They did order a new insert for the pull out which was delivered during our stay and they did offer to fix it but we were comfortable with the way things were. The living room could also use more furniture in it. We could not all sit and watch tv at the same time. There were some stains on the pillows in the living room and on the carpet in the movie room and there were a ton of popcorn and crumbs under the recliners in the movie room other than that the house was very clean. Some of the lights in the house did not work like the one above the kitchen island however we made due without it as there is plenty of lighting. The house could also use more towels for showers. Some of them are so small you need to use more than one to dry off after showering. The grill was great we used it a few times during the stay. We will definitely be returning to the island and although we normally try to rent different houses each time we would definitely rent this one again in the future! Andrew was great to work with also!

Reviewer Comments:

My Fiancé (now Wife) and I rented this house for her family when we were married on Marco Island in April 2017. This spacious and beautifully decorated home was everything that we hoped for. Everyone was extremely comfortable and the pool made for some great afternoons in the sunshine. I couldn't recommend this home more for a large family looking to stay on Marco Island.

Reviewer Comments:

Two families, 9 people (4 adults, 5 children), absolutely great space, clean, awesome location and all the amenities that one would need. And a great value as well (there were a handful of families from our school that also rented in Marco and we're so glad we chose 949 S. Joy). We had a couple issues that the management company took care of within 30 minutes each (fire alarm battery needed to be replaced and too much swimming made the pool cloudy). As for location - hard to beat. Convenient to all the great restaurants, marinas and the grocery stores. I know there were some reviews that mentioned lack of dining space, but that wasn't a problem at all. Between the island, two outdoor tables and the indoor dining room, we had up to 15 people eating dinner without issue one night. What they don't mention is that the glass doors slide completely out of the way so you have a HUGE space to entertain and hang out. We're definitely coming back!

Reviewer Comments:

We had a great week at this fantastic property. The home is beautiful and in one of the best locations on the island, central to everything. Walk to the Esplanade, grocery store, and restaurants. Quiet dead end street with very little traffic. The pool gets sun all day long and is perfect for adults getting a tan while the kids play in the pool. The master bedroom/bathroom is monstrous and is an oasis. The kids loved the comfortable recliners in the media room while relaxing before bed. The next door neighbor is a little uptight so watch you noise level. There were also a few minor repairs that were needed, but those were taken care of quickly. Other than that, the stay was perfect. Andrew at Marco Vacation Properties provides the utmost in customer service and helps to ensure your stay is the best possible.

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.
