HURRICANE IRMA UPDATE: As many of you know Marco Island recently took a direct hit from Cat4 Hurricane Irma. We along with just about everyone else on the island sustained some moderate damage (lanai cage section, and roof tiles, but NO water in or near the house). Repairs have already been made. The island also sustained some damage mostly consisting of trees down. Rebuilding is already underway and there is no doubt Marco will return to its beautiful self in a few short weeks. If you are considering a visit, please let us know. #MarcoStrong

Welcome to Marco Island. Our beautiful single-family home is located in the amazing Estate section of Marco Island among the multi million dollar estate homes. Our beautiful home features three bedrooms, two baths along with all the amenities needed for your fabulous vacation on Marco Island. Features include granite countertops, natural stone tile, under cabinet lighting, stainless appliances and beautiful chandeliers . The house features two sitting areas - one off of the living room and the second off of the master bedroom, with a pull out sofa bed for additional sleeping. Pass through the gorgeous set of double French doors and enter the beautiful screened lanai which covers a private and relaxing swimming pool with waterfall.

All this is situated on a very private oversized gated 1/2 acre lot loaded with tropical plants and fruit trees. Relax comfortably in the private pool /yard (knowing neighbors from across a canal are not peering into your lives). Plenty of room for the kids to safely run around or enjoy a game of volleyball. Work up a sweat and an appetite? Take a dip and fire up the Weber BBQ. Ample driveway parking available.

You are three minutes to the fabulous Gulf of Mexico and the beautiful white sands of Marco beaches. Activities such as shelling, snorkeling, hiking, fishing, boating, and golfing make Marco the perfect vacation destination. Plenty of wonderful restaurants and a variety of shopping is just minutes away. A short drive (20 minutes ) will take you to the spectacular downtown area of Naples where you can enjoy the popular 5th Ave and 3rd Street areas. Everything on Marco Island is convenient and allows for a truly memorable vacation experience. You will not be disappointed.

About Frank and Carmela

We have been coming to southwest Florida for many years and recently sold our Naples home so that we can better experience what Marco Island is all about. We bought this beautiful house and really enjoy spending time on Marco Island. If you have never travelled to Marco Island, I highly recommend a visit. I'm sure you will be pleasantly surprised, as we were. It is truly a hidden gem and what I call 'the best kept secret in Florida.' One visit and I'm sure you will agree.

Frank and Carmela purchased this house in 2014

We live in New York but love Marco Island. One visit and you will too!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Frank and Carmela,

Here is my review that you may post on VRBO:

The reviews that you are reading on this house are all correct. After staying here for 2 weeks with 5 people (2 adults, 3 kids aged 17-24) we also would give this vacation rental 5 stars! Location, location, location - the homes' location relative to beaches, grocery stores, restaurants, boat docks, movie theater, ice cream store, etc are all within the 1-3 mile range. We were fortunate in that we had relatives staying at one of the big chain hotels, so we were able to use their beach and chair/umbrella rentals for the majority of our stay however there are numerous chairs, coolers, beach towels, 2 bikes, and beach bags that owners provided. The kids had so much fun finding unbroken conch shells, sand dollars, and other treasures right off the beach in shallow water. The home itself is newer, on a private larger lot, and is in a quiet neighborhood. The amenities the owners provide are endless; from the Keurig (there's a regular coffee pot as well), pots, pans, board games to even a bandaid when we had a cut from a shell at the beach. The cable and wi-fi worked perfectly for those of us working off our laptops on the lanai. I received occasional texts from Frank informing us of local items of interest. (Those were the best, since we felt connected to the locals with "insider information"). The pool was heated at no additional charge, the seating was perfect on the lanai with tables, chairs, and loungers for big groups. We grilled out on the gas grill multiple times. All of us were in agreement when we left-we would absolutely stay here again!!

Great Home

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 on Spring Break. Franks place couldn't have been better. Frank literally had everything we needed. I realized that I forgot to pack games and balls for my 6 year old. Frank had them on the property. The two adult bikes came in handy to ride to the beach. Frank even had fishing poles for us to us. The place was spacious and spotless. We will definitely return

Great time in Marco

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have rented this home. The home is clean and the owners respond very quickly to questions and concerns. We hope to rent this home in the future. The beautiful beach is just a mile away!

Clean, spacious, well-equipped home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This was one of our favorites vacations. The house was very clean with everything you could ask for. There was plenty of room for 7 of us including a toddler. The house is nicely furnished throughout and has stainless steel appliances in the kitchen. We were very comfortable during our stay. We enjoyed the pool just about everyday and used the Weber grill a number of times. We also appreciated the availability of the beach chairs, umbrella and bikes stored in the garage.

Frank and Carrmela were great to deal with and checked in with us a number of times (unobtrusively) to remind us of garbage and recycling pickup and pool maintenance schedules as well as alerting us to events on the island.

We enjoyed perfect weather and a perfect house during our stay on beautiful Marco Island! We would definitely consider returning in the future and recommending the house to family and friends!

Beautiful, Well kept house. Comfortable with lots of space.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 2 couples and 3 kids under the age of 4 at the house and there was plenty of room for all of us. We had a great time. The pool area was a favorite - so convinient with the kids. When ever we had questions Frank & Camela were very fast to reply.

Lovely, well-equipped home; very pleasant and accommodating owner

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our one-week stay at Frank and Carmela's vacation home. If you're looking for a nice place to stay on Marco Island, we'd highly recommend it. The kitchen was very well equipped, which we appreciated even though we didn't do much cooking. Frank offered us some great tips, including a weekly farmers' market that took place the day after we arrived. We enjoyed the pool and were happy to have the beach chairs and umbrella provided. As former HomeAway/VRBO advertisers ourselves, we especially appreciated Frank's good communication with us. If you go, check out the various restaurants in the nearby towns of Goodland and Isles of Capri, which are funkier that the most of ones on Marco. On Marco we enjoyed the Snook Inn (for dinner) and Doreen's Cup of Joe and the Red Rooster (both for breakfast). And Tigertail Beach is lovely--we did not make it to South Beach. Thanks for sharing your home, Frank and Carmela!

Perfect for a family

  • 5 of 5

First time renting a house in the US and we are super happy we did. This house was perfect for us, a lot of space indoor and outside by the pool. We are not so much in to going out to restaurants so a Publix basically 5min away (left from the driveway, left, right, left and then on the right you have the store) we where able to make all our meals in this full featured kitchen with all the cookware you needed, also a barbecue by the poolside made the week in Florida just perfect.

Also great that there was a number of sun chairs in the garage for us to use including two umbrellas. So we spend the days by the beach with some snacks and drinks in the cooler.

This is for sure a house I will recommend to my friends if they consider going to Marco Island.
