About Fiona WInter

We are originally from the UK but came to the States in 99. We fell in love with Marco Island after a holiday here . There is no where else quite like it so we decided to purchase a home here. Our children have enjoyed many beach days and boat trips...so many happy memories were made with them on Marco Island. We want to make your stay in our rental home a great experience one that you will remember for years to come.

We wish we could live on Marco ALL the time but at the present time we live in the Midwest and have to endure those yukky winters!

Fiona WInter purchased this house in 2015

Why Fiona WInter chose Marco Island

We fell in love with this properties location to the beach, just a short stroll or quick bike ride. We also loved the easy walk to Happy Hours ! One of the nicest things about our home is the Privacy of the pool and how large the pool is ! We love not using the car very much and just walking in the sunshine.

What makes this house unique

Whats not to love about being able to walk to the beach whilst on vacation?? The pool is also beautiful, its a large swimming pool which is quite unusual on some rentals. The sun shines on the back lanai all day, but the house has some great indoor seating if you get a little too warm. We also have a lemon tree in the back yard,awesome for a gin and Tonic!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Fiona,

Just a quick note to say thank you very much for last week. You have a lovely house and pool, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves on Marco Island. We really enjoyed the Dolphin Explorer trip, and we would be happy to recommend that to any of your future guests. Plus we have great meals at Mango's, CJ's. the Snook Inn and Da Vinci's! And again happy to recommend all of those.

Marco Island Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing!! So beautiful decorated and spacious, and had all the amenities you need!! We felt right at home!!The pool is fantastic, perfect for a dip when we came back from the beach!! We enjoyed riding the bikes around the island, and was so glad to have the beach chairs and cooler to use for or our days on the beautiful beach. Close to the beach and many great restaurants and shopping . We absolutely loved it!!! Was definitely better than any hotel... we can't wait to come back!!!!

Very happy with the home on Elk Circle, very clean and well equipped. Fiona was available to help if a problem came up. Loved the pool and the area. Did not like the coffee table in the living room as I could not seem to walk by without bumping into it, my husband had no problems with it!! We had a wonderful month!!! Thank you, Pat

The house was great & the price was good.

  • 4 of 5

My family vacationed in Marco Island. However we didn't spend much time at the house always on the go & meeted up with friends we had met in Marco Island when we came for the 1st time in May. We did jump in the pool when we 1st woke up. The boat we rented & the beaches were just amazing.

The only down fall was the house had bath towels & hand towels but no wash rags. The owner was very fast to respond to any questions that I had. I would stay again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review, glad you had fun on the island and enjoyed our home. We do not feel it necessary to provide wash cloths as most guests feel more comfortable bringing these from home or going to the local Walgreens and purchasing new washcloths.

Perfect place for a family to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the pleasure of staying at this home for nearly 2 weeks in mid October. We were very pleased with the accommodations. Three decent sized bedrooms were great for our family of 7 (2 adults and 5 children ages 9, 8, 6, 4, and 1. We had the baby in the pack'n'play in the master bedroom. There is a walk-in closet in the master. It is important to note that the master is on the other side of the home from the two bedrooms - not terribly far, but might be important if you had a 2 or 3 year old you had planned on staying in one of the other rooms. The beds and pillows were very comfortable! Nice looking, comfortable decor in general. Great flooring and plenty of lights in every room. Lots of seating in the living room, dining area and outside on the pool deck. We loved the large, private backyard (there are neighbors behind and to one side, but with the fence and the trees, you don't see anyone!) and our kids loved the pool and were in it at least once every day. There are two sliding doors leading out to the pool - one from near the Living area and another from the Dining room. They do have locks on them as well as a peg lock at the top which we were very glad to see due to concerns our children might wander out on their own. The handle locks on the sliding doors did not always seem to "catch" no matter how gently/firmly we did the doors, so please do use the peg locks at the top. There are plenty of pool toys outside. The pool was nicely heated and shallow enough for my 6 year old on one end, yet must have been about 6.5 feet in the deep end as it went over my husband's head. This home is stocked! There are plenty of towels and beach towels and it was nice to have some spices and a bit of sugar in the pantry for cooking needs. So much is provided. The only things we felt would have been nice additions: a stepstool in the 2nd bathroom for young ones. Our 4 year old couldn't reach the sink without one so we bought one at ACE on the 2nd day out there. Plenty of towels/hand towels, but we could have used washcloths, we were glad we had brought a few. We found a flat sheet for the pack'n'play but a fitted one would have been good - bring one if needed. Fiona responded quickly to our questions/needs including fast replacement of the hairdryer which had quit on us. Check out Doreen's for breakfast, Mackle Park for the kids and Tigertail for the family - watch out for jellyfish - they floated in on the 2nd half of our stay.

Great place in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

The house was awesome! The owner was accurate and honest in the description. The interior was well maintained, equipped and decorated nicely. From the outdoor pool to the bikes and ocean gear in the garage every detail was well thought out. The location is nice for a short walk to many restaurants and activities. Made for a great vacation.

We rode the bikes one day to Tigertail beach and around the neighborhood. There was 4 of us and I believe there are about 8 bikes in the garage. The other days we drove and visited North and South beach areas, both are good but we enjoyed South beach a little better. Most of the nights were just nice relaxing by the screened in pool area under the lanai. We did go to a few restaurants on the island and we all decided Mango's Dock Side Bistro was our favorite, and it is within walking distance to the house. I recommend the scallop volcano appetizer if on the menu.

It was a nice, relaxing, and enjoyable vacation due to having the perfect place to stay. What a way to turn 50! We will all be back again and stay at this house.

Our beach home is just a short walk to Tigertail beach. We love to go shelling there every morning and enjoy watching beautiful sunsets there. We are also located near The Esplanade restaurants including Chop 239 for wonderful steaks and CJ's on the bay which is great for Happy Hour. We happen to be in walking distance of Ne Ne's breakfast restaurant and Empire Bagel factory for a great start to the day.
