About Dawn and Dave Rubin

We have been happily married for 30 years! In 2015 we moved from Houston, TX to another home we own on Marco Island. Dave is employed in Sales & Marketing for a major chemical company, and he is an avid mountain climber, golfer and skier. Dawn is actively involved volunteering with animal rescue groups in Houston and the Marco Island & Naples area.

Dawn and Dave Rubin purchased this house in 2011

Why Dawn and Dave Rubin chose Marco Island

We have always wanted to live on the water, so while vacationing on Marco Island from Houston in 2011 we found 739 Orchid Court and quickly realized it was the perfect vacation home! We love that our home is within easy walking distance to the Beach, Movie Theater, Miniature Golf Course and Restaurants!

5 Star - Best Property/Owners on Marco

  • 5 of 5

We have used HomeAway many times, staying in many locations along the east coast, this is by far the best property we have stayed at. The house was large, open and great for a family. Loved having the Pool and Pool Table. The fenced in yard was perfect for our small dog. The owners were available and took great care in there guest and home. The house was very close to the beach (10 minute walk) along with many restaurants within walking distance. The home was perfect distance away from the crowds where you could sit at the pool and not hear a thing but the birds. The home was in a perfect location and the house its self was perfect. We had a awesome Christmas week at Marco Island, looking forward to returning. Thank you!

Perfect Vacation Oasis

  • 5 of 5

Orchid is a nicely appointed vacation home, perfect for a family getaway. You have everything you need to make you feel comfortable and at home. Cool off in the pool, maybe fish off of the dock and finish off with a barbeque on the deck. The house has a nice layout, very convenient if you are bringing your kids or have friends joining you.

The house is located only a walk or short bike ride away from the beautiful white sandy beach. You can also walk to some nearby eateries or extend your range with a short car ride. Like collecting sea shells, don’t forget to take a walk down Tiger tail beach.

Like shopping, Naples is a short car ride away with some nice shops and restaurants. Like gators, drive out to the Everglade City Airboat Tours for a fun ride through the everglades (best time to see larger number of gators is when it’s hot).

The home is very clean and the owners do a very nice job of maintaining the property and keeping it stocked with the things you need to feel at home (e.g. - towels, utensils, bikes, beach chairs, sun umbrellas, etc.). Our family had a great time. Lot’s to do for all ages. We will definitely visit again.

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home met all our needs. It is very clean and well equipped and most of all it is pet friendly so we were able to bring our small dog (who is missing lounging by the pool in the sunshine). It is a short walk to the beach to which we went daily ( sometimes twice when we wanted to see the sunset) then back to the house to cool off in the pool. It was large enough to accommodate our children and grand children when they came for a visit. It is within walking distance of our favorite restaurants - Nacho Mammas, Rookies, DaVinci's, Marco Movies, Stonewalls and Bebes ice cream shop. The grand children loved being able to walk to mini golf (we went 3 times!) we often didn't need to use the car for a few days. My husband enjoyed fishing off the dock. My favorite was sitting by the fire pit at dusk with a glass of wine and my book. All in all a great vacation and we have booked already for next year! BTW - owners are very friendly and accommodating.

Just the vacation we needed

  • 5 of 5

We walked to the beach every day and hung out by the pool. It was peaceful and relaxing. Stayed for a week in October with our friends and it was fantastic. Great location and quiet neighborhood. Did some boating and shopping...good restaurants in the area too.

GREAT vacation in Marco Island

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at this beautiful Marco Island home. The location of the house is perfect for beach visitors as well as boaters. It is less than 10 minutes via boat or vehicle from boat ramp to the house. We docked our boat all week with easy access every day. We also kayaked the canals, went to the beach and relaxed in the great pool at the house. It is a very nice, friendly quiet neighborhood. We saw burrow owls every morning and dusk and we got two wonderful mangos from the tree in the yard. Very clean home and the pool table was a ++++ bonus!!! It was a nice relaxing, peaceful week for our family and our small dog!! Thanks for having such a wonderful home and renting it to others!!!

Wonderful stay on Marco Island in a lovely home.This home has everything you need, the pool table is fun on a rainy day, a mango tree in the back yard was a surprise treat. The screened in saltwater pool was a great way to relax after a day at the beach. Perfect walking distance to the beach and great restaurants.

Car: recommended

Guests who have recently stayed in our home have said:

'This is my third year to vacation in Marco Island, and my second time to rent a home from Dawn and Dave. The house has everything you could possibly need...and MORE. Seriously, just pack your clothes and enjoy. The pictures do not lie. The layout of the house works perfectly...master on one side and game room and guest rooms on the other. The property is beyond clean inside and out. The pool is very refreshing and gets PLENTY of sunlight throughout the day. Everything is within walking distance...amazing restaurants, mini golf, salons, shopping, and the beach. You must catch the sunset every night!'

'The house is in a very convenient location for everything...access to the Gulf, access to golf, dining and shopping. The swimming pool overlooks a beautiful backyard and a channel. The house is very clean and well organized. The kitchen has nice appliances and an assortment of quality pots and pans. All light fixtures are clearly labeled which is very helpful. The garage is spotless and everything is stored neatly. Fishing rods, tackle, bikes, beach chairs, a little wagon and more are all there and ready to use. All in all a great destination. We already have multiple weeks booked in the future. A big 'thank you' to Dawn and Dave for sharing their beautiful home!'

'A wonderful home from home! The owners have thought of everything to make your holiday as relaxing and peaceful as possible. We had a great time at this well equipped house. It is exceptionally clean and very spacious. The pictures do not do it justice! We have visited Marco many times and rented several homes and this is the best so far. You are within walking distance of many good restaurants and shops. The beach is also an easy walk and all the gear you need is provided. My husband loved the pool table and I could watch him play while relaxing by the pool. Thanks for sharing your home with us, if only for a brief three weeks.'
