Relaxing vacation house

  • 3 of 5

First of all location of this house is awesome. Right on a canal and near a bridge so perfect for fishing. Pool and lanai area is 5 stars. My kids never wanted to get out of pool. Spa was so nice and relaxing in the evening. The reason for 3 stars is for the lack of cleaning.. Tons of dust in kitchen on vents and ceiling, floors in bathroom need cleaned under cabinets, wall near garbage can needs scrubbed, and the washer has a horrible smell. With a good deep cleaning I would absolutely give this house 5 stars. We had so much fun at it and we love Marco Island.

The house was beautiful and perfect for our family. The location was excellent for boating. The manager of the house was very quick to address any questions we had. Looking forward to going back.

We'd go back!

  • 5 of 5

This house was a perfect fit for our family of 8. The pool, spa and lanai are fabulous and the pool table was a big hit with our kids too. The bedrooms are good sized and the beds are comfy. Everything worked perfectly, the place is clean and well kept and the location is fabulous. We used one of the bikes that the house provides and rented additional bikes from the Island Bike Shop so we could easily bike to nearby restaurants (Sweet Annie's Ice Cream and Kretch's Seafood restaurant) and Mackle Park. NeNe's Kitchen was a breakfast and lunch favorite while the Snook Inn and the Little Bar (in Goodland) were good for dinner. Mackle Park is fabulous for kids with its playground, volleyball courts, soccer fields and path around a small lake. Their rec center hands out equipment to use for free. We rented a pontoon boat from Rose Marina for a half day and enjoyed going to Keewaydin Island. We all agreed that we would recommend this place and hope to return!

very nice proeprty

  • 5 of 5

property is as depicted in the photographs. Reservations are handled quickly. We chose this location because even with properties within walking distance to the beach we ended up driving anyway. I can walk as far as I want on the beach- not to it. So, given that we visit in the off season we decided to stay closer to the restaurants, marinas and grocery stores. Dunkin Donuts and grocery store are just down the street as are the best restaurants, seafood market and the harbors. You have your choice between all three beaches.

You can purchase an annual parking pass at Tiger Tail beach for $50 and park at South beach as well as visit beaches in Naples- road trip. We ended up going to South Beach most often as the walk from the parking lot is through a palm tree shaded path. There are no neighbors next door or directly across the canal- so, the location is private and quiet. You pick up and leave your keys and garage door opener at the property rather than having to visit a management company. The house has high ceilings and ample windows. The master bath is huge with a tub and large walk in shower (with seat). The second bath is upstairs with a large walk in shower. The 1/2 bath is large with a door for the 4th bedroom and entry from the pool area.

The pool is and hot tub are large. There is ample area to sit, sun, eat dinner, etc.

Bedrooms are large with walk in closets. You won't be tripping over your luggage. Plenty of pillows and bedding. Beds are all different- firm, soft, semi. You will likely find one that you like. I guess it could be an issue if everyone has the same taste. You can fish from the dock and then take a swim or dip in the hot tub. If you keep losing your bait and/or hook it's like the darn crabs. I almost caught one. Fish in the middle for catfish; sides for everything else. You can also rent a boat, charter a fishing trip or fish by land in other areas. Caxambas park (SE side of island) has very good fishing from the dock. Plus, you can rent waverunners there. I suggest that you arrive, unpack and make a list of items you would like and then go to Walmart in Naples. There is a second hand store a short drive Bald Eagle (toward Rose Marina) where you can purchase all sorts of items and then donate back for a tax write off. Bring a cooler with you to the grocery store. Recommendations: The house has a speaker system throughout- even outside but if it works, it's not available for renters.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and 2 kids stayed at this house and had a great time. House is spacious and has many amenities, including all kitchen needs. The pool and hot tub were so much fun for all. It's a quiet neighborhood with a quick drive to the beach, supermarkets and area restaurants. We had rented in MI before but this house has been our favorite. It does need a bit of updating but perfect for what we needed it for. Look forward to next time!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife adult daughter and I have had a superb stay at this property.

On arrival it was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed and is in a quiet location

In a good neighbourhood.

We saw a dolphin from the lanai on the first day.

The pool table and outdoor grille were great assets.

This was the third rental property we have stayed in on Marco and overall by far the best.

We will look no further than this property when we return to Marco.

We found Chris the property manager was very helpful
