Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Marco Island - 653 North Barfield Drive

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 4

You get a bigger yard and a better view from this 1,250 square foot, waterfront house on a corner lot. It sleeps four, with one king bed, two twins, two bathrooms and a one-car garage.

Palm trees and ferns encircle the lanai, creating your own private oasis. The kids will be glad to know a bigger corner lot means a bigger heated pool. A shaded lanai overlooking the palm tree-lined canal makes the ideal setting for a poolside barbeque you cook up on the gas grill. In fact, the view is so impressive the lanai also makes the ideal setting for breakfast, lunch, cocktails, dinner or simply admiring how the setting sun casts palm tree shadows on the still surface of the water.

A special view like this deserves as many vantage points as possible, so there’s also whicker chairs on the rock garden outside the lanai, where you can watch for a dolphin or manatee on their way to the Marco River. If you’re a boater, you’ll be headed the same way, since your private dock gives you direct Gulf of Mexico access.

The spacious grass yard is bordered by a rock garden with colorful ferns, shady trees and fragrant hibiscus bushes. There’s a picnic area in the center, with cushioned rattan tables and chairs and a ceramic chiminea, surrounded by garden lights.

The feeling of waterside calm continues inside, where wall-to-wall windows brighten the rooms with natural light. Soft leather sofas beneath a vaulted ceiling are as comfortable as they are stylish.

The modern gourmet kitchen features wooden cabinets, granite countertops and all the modern appliances you need to serve dinner on a dark wood dining room table lit by a chandelier.

The bedrooms come with ample drawer and closet space, TVs and windows that bathe you with fragrant night breezes off the water.

The house gives you comfort-enhancing amenities like air conditioning, ceiling fans, a washer and dryer, internet, cable, and a big screen TV. You’ve also got bikes to explore the Island and beach essentials like an umbrella, beach chairs, a cooler and plenty of toys for your short drive to the warm sands and turquoise waters of Paradise Coast.

And for family fun even closer to home, you’re just a short walk from Leigh Plummer Park.

So come experience a bigger yard, a more impressive view and the best vacation of your life.

Reviewer Comments:

Cant say enough how much our family of 4 enjoyed staying at this beautiful home! Have been renting homes in Florida for almost 10 years and this has to be the cleanest we have seen. Beds were extremely comfortable, kitchen well stocked, beautifully decorated and grounds very well-maintained. Really enjoyed having the bikes to explore the island! Spent time every night listening to music out on the patio or by the pool. Some reviews report too close to busy street, but we personally were never bothered by it; either by traffic or by noise. Great outdoor furniture and lighting! Easy bike or car ride to dining and shops on the island and very quick, easy access up to Naples/ Bonita Springs. Very professional and friendly service received from rental agency. If I had to say one negative thing it would be that the pool is not as big as description would lead you to believe. Considering how difficult it is to find a two-bedroom rental home on the island, we felt fortunate to have found such a wonderful place to spend our week-long vacation!

We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful property! The home met our needs. It was clean and nicely decorated. My son loved fishing daily off the dock. The picture were exactly as the property looks in person. The home was stocked with all the right amenities. We will consider another visit!

Reviewer Comments:

The owners totally respect their guests in this clean and updated two bedroom home. Everything you could possibly need is there. The backyard sitting area is very private as is the lanai enclosed pool area. The home was immaculate when we arrived and we were not all that excited about leaving after our 7 day rental. Yes, the street the home is located on is fairly busy but that didn't bother us at all. If we choose to return to Marco Island again next season, we will try for this home at the top of our list. One thing to add for the owner----cleaning service did a great job but they did miss the tile floor in the lanai area. Other than that, everything was perfect. Property management company is outstanding. They added to the overall experience.

Reviewer Comments:

We were very impressed from the moment we walked in. The photos don't really do it justice. The Master bedroom is roomier than the photos show and there is ample closet space - we brought clothes for two weeks and had extra hangers. The kitchen is well stocked with nearly every type of appliance, dish, pot or utensil you can imagine. You could easily host a lovely dinner party with all the platters and dishes provided. The appliances are all very new and modern, the furniture is comfortable and in general, the entire house is tastefully decorated. It was very clean and tidy when we arrived. The linens were very good quality and the towels were plush and plentiful. The pool was delightful and was well cared for by a pleasant pool guy. Even when the air was chilly, the pool was warm. North Barfield is a busy street, but the traffic noises didn't really bother us. We enjoyed the lovely sitting areas in the well-landscaped yard. The neighborhood was very quiet and we rarely saw any neighbors on their docks along the canal. The shrubs that border the property provide ample privacy. We appreciated the puzzles and games provided, and also enjoyed riding the bikes. We don't fish, but the poles are there for those who do. For those who like wildlife, the island is teeming with ospreys, pelicans, burrowing owls, and a host of others. We rented kayaks and saw several dolphins in the channel and in the Marco River nearby. We had only two complaints. The TV in the living room had a nice picture but had poor sound quality, so we had to retreat to the master bedroom to watch TV. Also, we found we had to run the hot water quite a while before it became warm. I felt funny wasting all that water! These were minor problems, so we've already booked a stay for 2 weeks in 2017. It's a great house for a couple or a small family!

We were very impressed with this property. Super clean and very well stocked with consumables as well as everything you can imagine for kitchen use. Appliances are new and everything works as expected. TVs worked great with xfinity cable and high speed WiFi. Several games are provided to keep children or adults occupied. Heating and air conditioning worked flawlessly. We did not use the pool much, but the water was very comfortable. The outdoor seating areas were very nice. The corner lot is big so you are not up against your neighbors. We would recommend this property to anyone. We were extremely happy with this property. One of the best rentals we have stayed at.
