Michelle, we had the best time on our family vacation to Marco Island. The house was just beautiful. You did a great job decorating it, and stocking up with supplies, games and cooking materials. We had everything we needed for a nice, relaxing vacation. The house was perfect for two couples with children, and we all had our own space. The pool and lanai were great (we want one in our house now). We spend a lot of evenings eating dinner on the porch watching the water. Your recommendations of what to do helped us plan our trip and stay busy with the kids. We will definitely be back in the future. Thanks for creating such an elegant and comfortable atmosphere. - Ashley M, Dallas, TX

Of all the vacation homes we've rented, this is by far the most fabulous, and we've stayed in some beautiful homes! We felt like we had stepped into the pages of Architectural Digest. The kitchen is extremely well appointed and we lacked for nothing during our stay. Marco Island is delightful and the time you put into the restaurant guide was very much appreciated as were all the household directions. We've loved our vacation and would love to return.

Thank you,

Michelle & George Phy,

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home, our family had such a wonderful time. Everything was great from the inside to the outside. The pool and spa were well used and my husband and son enjoyed fishing off of the deck every night and morning. The house is well equiped for every age from sand toys for our 5 yr. old to bicycles for the teenagers. We look forwar to going back again next year.

My family can not stop talking about how much fun we had in your home!!! Everything was first class. This was the best rental home we have ever stayed in!

Dear Phy Family: We enjoyed our week's stay in your home in early June - even despite Hurricane/Tropical Storm Alberto and the 3 days of rain that it brought. Your home is perfect for a large group as it is very spacious and well-appointed. We loved your master bath design - and so did our kids. Your lanai area was a definite highlight for all of us. Our kids really became accustomed to swimming as they please. Thanks for sharing your home with us!

By far the best vacation home we have rented. Top of the line furnishings and beautifully maintained. Room for family of 5 to spread out and, many activities to promote quality family time. Fishing from the dock every day was a favorite for all.

Hi! Thank you for renting us your beautiful house in Marco. We had a marvellous week there. The children were in the pool almost all day. They also tried they´re fishing skills, and caught two small type of shark. That was special to us Norwegians because we don´t have sharks in Norway. Two families (7 persons)and all that space in the house. We would love to come back some time.

absolutely amazing vacation rental.

We had a wonderful time at Marco Island. The house is gorgeous with plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen was top notch and the best equipped that we've ever stayed in. We enjoyed the pool, the spa and all of the wonderful things to do in the area. Thanks for sharing your wonderful home!

This home makes for a perfect family vacation. There’s plenty of room for everyone (even my large family of 6 adults & 1 teen) to comfortably gather together or to find a quite spot to relax. It is superbly equipped for a luxurious holiday. From upscale pool and spa, to the well equipped kitchen, and large screen TV’s, no one could wish for more. The guys pulled catfish and a few other species from the canal non-stop. We loved our sunset Jacuzzi times with the enchanting changing color lights and soothing bubbles. Beaches, shopping and fine restaurants are very close by, as are sightseeing and charter fishing boats. Marco Island is just beautiful, and staying in this home was the icing on the cake.

This house is absolutely amazing! We loved everything about the house. The homeowners have truly thought of everything you might need. We loved the fishing off the dock and the pool was wonderful. We will definitely stay here again and the homeowners were great to deal with!

We stayed as 3 generations from the same family and had a very enjoyable stay.No hesitation in recommending the property and we plan to visit again in 2009.

Great spot for a vacation.

Spent a week this summer at this house with my family and grandkids. It was just perfect. House is great, lots of room. Master bathrooom is just incredible. Fishing form the dock was consistant and we als saw dolphons and eagle rays and we even saw stingrays launch out of the water. Shopping and restaraunts are closeby. Tigertail beach is nice but accessing it is a little difficult. You have to wads across a pond to get to the ocean. Not a big deal buut don;t expect to frive up and be on the beach. South beach is more accessible. Best beach is in Naples just a few miles north. Breat fishing pier there too. Tip: if you want to stay out of the sun...set up under the beginning of the pier. Totally shaded and the fishing is going on way down the pier so no hassles from that. Plenty of golf courses around the area. Everglades tour is also close and pretty fun. Pool is small but nice. Hot tub spills over into the pool and warms it up a bit.Owner (Gearge) is very helpful and wants you to enjoy your stay. I will be back again.

Marco Memories 2008.

All of the house and amenities were exactly as described in the advertisement for this home. This is our family's 5th visit to the area for vacation. The home is beautifully maintained. The pool is very nice; sound system is great; the dock for fishing or sunning was excellent as well. Great layout for kids -- ours are older 16 and 19 - and adults. We all had our own private space or lots of shared common areas for family fun. The house is also in one of the better locations on this small island -- within walking/running distance to the market areas, but very quiet along the waterway. We would definitely go back!

Marco Island House Rental.

We were very happy with our choice of this home for our stay in Marco Island. The location, layout and amenities were just as they were as stated in the on-line advertisement. House was just lovely; plenty of room, and furnished beautifully. Our granddaughter enjoyed the pool immensely as did we. Enjoyed fishing off the dock. We also got to see Dolphins passing by. We rented a fishing boat a few times which again was enjoyed by all. Husband did morning bike ride every day! Also got to see burrowing owls (endangered species). We took a day boat trip to Key West which we would recommend to others. Restaurants and Clubs were close by and again enjoyed by all. We certainly would recommend this home to others.

By : Marilyn, Jim, Mike, Hailee


Our family had a blast at this Marco Island home! The homeowners were very professional, providing us with a well written lease agreement right away and very useful information about the area. Finding and gaining access to the home was no problem. When we entered the house it was clean, spacious and well appointed. When we went outside to checkout the grounds, Dolphins were playing off the end of the dock!! What a greeting!!

The Grandparents loved the master bed / bath and we really enjoyed the upstairs 'suite.' Our daughter slept well in her own room and never had to share her bath! (What a treat!) Everyone enjoyed fishing off the dock--We must have caught about 15 fish over the week! The highlight of our stay was a 1/2 hour visit by a manatee who stopped to drink from the fresh water tap on the fish-cleaning station. Who needs Sea World!?

Although the public beach was beautiful, the pool and hot tub were so much fun that we only made a few trips. For those who enjoy walking, there are a few shopping centers within a mile that have great restaurants and supermarkets. The only time a walk didn't seem sensible was mid-day when temperatures were high. Getting to the beach on foot is more of a challenge, especially if you intend to bring any gear.

We would have given the property a '5' but there was an issue with smoke detector batteries that caused the alarms to go off in the middle of the night, and the previous tenant had damaged some blinds in the upstairs TV room.

Other than those minor inconveniences, the place was terrific and we plan to return. For the price we would have paid for one hotel room on the beach, we had our own personal, private resort!!

The house allowed for 'one floor living' so those traveling with someone who is disabled would be happy as long as they could navigate the entrance and transitions between house and lanai. The pool alarm and security system made us feel very secure, even with a 5 year old on the premises.

Thanks to Michelle and George for a great vacation!!

Exceeding Expectations.

Our Marco Island Memories started as soon as we walked thru the front door...the view to the pool and waterway let us know immediately,we were on vacation!!! The best part was everyone had their own room and bath..the Master Suite was calming, the Master

Bath was unbelieveable!!!! The walk thru shower and the tub that fills from the ceiling..what luxury!! The retreat upstairs gave my grandsons a place away from adults to play their games, when they weren't swimming in the pool

Enjoyed the shopping in Naples and on the Island...Dining was never a disappointment...Ne Ne's for breakfast or lunch..Riverwalk in Naples for a sunset dinner,while watching the dolphins swim by..Joey's Pizzeria had awesome pizza plus atmosphere..Arturro's for authentic Italian dining..delicious.,

The Naples Zoo,though small, was an enjoyable experience with the

monkey boat ride..Highly recommend the zoo..You must experience the sunset crusie thru Naples Bay to the Gulf.

This vacation home exceeded my expectations.,,complete relaxation

quite neighborhood...I give this vacation home 10 stars!!! I look foward to using this home in the spring...Elsie

July 2010 From the UK.

This was our fourth time to Marco, our first to this property. The cost is greater than many on Marco but if you are looking for a high end property which exceeds its description then go no further. You wont be disappointed with what you find, and while with every property there are small things you would have done differently, this is a fine home in all aspects. Very clean and everything worked (except the phone). The process of the booking and payment was smooth and George was contactable and responsive if needed. I would recommend this to you and will definietly return at some stage. Steve and Angela

Our best rental experience in the area.

We have rented 4 different places in the general vicinity and this was by far our favorite. The home is beautiful and well-stocked (towels/linens, kitchen supplies, beach gear, etc.). The location is perfect - very short drives to beaches, restaurants, groceries, shopping, and convenient for trips into Naples on the rare occasion you feel compelled to leave Marco. The pool and hot tub were clean, temperatures perfect, and it was great to be able to open up the wall of sliding glass doors and connect the kitchen/dining area to the pool and patio - especially to keep an eye on our small children while they were enjoying the pool.

We also enjoyed time at nearby Mackle Park with the kids - a GREAT spot with a fountain park, playground, bocce, shuffleboard, ping pong tables, and on and on - all meticulously cared for and managed by smiling, helpful staff.

But, back to the house. The master bedroom and bath are spacious and luxurious with a jetted tub that fills from the ceiling (the kids were in awe!), and a walk-in shower with his and hers showerheads as well as an overhead rain-type showerhead in between.

An upstairs bedroom suite has a den attached where my father-in-law could stay up late and watch t.v. He could then sleep in late despite the kids being awake in the a.m. as the bedrooms were removed from the main living area.

The kids stayed in the one room with twin beds in it and it was more than roomy enough for them both. They barely spent time in the room, though, as they LIVED in the pool and hot tub. This was fine by us as there was plenty of patio room for the adults to hang out and visit or lay in the lounge chairs.

The owners were extremely responsive to our initial questions, prepared us well for our arrival, and emailed us shortly after arrival to see if we had settled in ok and had any issues or questions.

Our best day was spent in a rental boat from the Isle of Capri Marina (maybe 10 minutes away) where we boated out to an island accessible only via boat (so we had it to ourselves most of the time) with amazing shelling. The Capri Island Fish House served up a great lunch upon our return to shore.

We had done a bunch of research prior to picking this home and found the price extremely reasonable for a very high quality rental. We would (and will) highly recommend it to friends and family and would like to return ourselves someday.

Beautiful Home.


We wanted let you know what a great time we had in Marco this year. This is our fifth year renting houses and your home is by far the nicest one we've had the pleasure of staying in. Not only is it beautifully decorated and very comfortable, but, from start to finish, you made the renting process so easy!

We all loved the pool and dock area. We'd spend time sunning out on the large dock and also in the lanai which gets sun all day as well. Your whole house stereo system was a real treat!

It was truly a favorite vacation, one we will not soon forget. Unfortunately, your home was already booked for next year or we would have rented it again in 2012! :-(

Thanks, George, and we hope to stay again in the future.

Best regards,

Fantastic Rental Home.

We had the most wonderful time in this home. We were on a family vacation along with our grandchildren. The home was perfect for all of us to have plenty of privacy and space.

It was beautiful in all aspects.The decorating, the pool and hot tub, the beautiful master bath and the dock outside for fishing!

The home was very clean and had everything needed for the stay. The kitchen was well equipped for our cooking needs. We enjoyed dinning in the home around the pool area.

This was our first time renting a home versus a condo and we enjoyed it so much more.

George was also wonderful to work with, we are so thankful for his willingness to share his beautiful home with us. We are excited to make more family memories together in this home!

By : Curt and JoLynn

Amazing Property!.

Amazing would be an understatement when describing this gorgeous 4 bedroom/4 bath home in lovely Marco Island, Florida. The attention to detail, the location, the open kitchen, the spacious lanai, proximity to the beach, the amazing bathroom off the master suite and the sounds of dolphins each evening in the canal made this stay one to remember. When considering this property, I found the owner to be extremely responsive to my email inquires and focused on ensuring my guests had a wonderful stay which we did. My 80 year old mother is still bragging about the experience with her friends!

This home exceeded my expectations and I certainly hope to return again soon! You will not be disappointed.

The Perfect Home from Home.

I highly recommend this home away from home. The floor plan is set up for privacy for 3 families while the great room lends itself to family gatherings. It is fully equipped with everything from a patio BBQ to a formal dining room for 6 adults. The location on the canal creates beautiful sunsets and on this street, a quiet retreat. Central to everything in Marco, nothing we needed was more than 5 minutes away. The pool was a perfect depth and size for everyone from our 3 year olds to the adults who may want a "bench" underwater for entering and exiting. The house was decorated very attractively and we all felt comfortable, content and would be happy to return. George was wonderful to deal with and the house showed like a brand new model home upon arrival. We would not think twice to recommend this to any friend or relative.

Luxury Home Get Away.

We can't wait to go back! The home is everything & more than you see in the photo's. It can be enjoyed by young and old. We had two teenage daughters that enjoyed the send floor - suite style living and our friend had a master bedroom all to herself. The best part was the master bedroom open shower. The girls loved the (3) shower heads and how the jacuzzi filled from the ceiling. If you like to cook, the gourmet kitchen is well equiped - just remember to bring your own spices/condiments. There was a album full of restaurant menus - we sampled one every night and all were very good.

We enjoyed the pool area & dock so much that we only went to the beach one day. Tiger beach had beautiful white fluffy sand that did not get hot and the water was very warm. Just know that there is about a 5-7 minute walk to the beach. You may want to check out the Marriott as they were offering a beach special for $40. It included parking all day, a beach umbrella & drink cups.

There are a lot of shopping options and outlets nearby.

My fellow housemates slept in every morning so they missed the daily visit from the doulpin.

The cleaning crew was pleasant and did a great job - you didn't even know that someone rented before you. The owner was very easy to deal with, friendly and responded promptly.

We look forward to returning to Marco Island & Marco Memories Home again soon.

Great stay for two families.

We were two families with four kids on total (1-5 years) and had a great week on Marco. Safe pool area for the kids (alarm when door to pool area were opened + fully fenced lanai = no kids could get in or leave the pool area without adults).

Really big house with three bedrooms on first floor and fourth bedroom upstairs. Convenient location on Marco. As an extra bonus there were wild dolphins in the channel beside the house.

Another Fabulous Stay at Marco Memories.

For the second year, our family has had its reunion at Marco Memories and it was flawless. The house is located on a quiet street, yet convenient to that quick run to the store if you forget something. The house itself has it all. The Phys equip their home with everything you need. Unlike many rentals, the furniture and appliances are all top shelf.

My kids LOVE the pool and everyone enjoyed a nightly sunset watch in the jacuzzi. The fishing was great right off the dock and occasionally the dolphins swim by which is always a treat. We rented kayaks and had them delivered to the house, and everyday would take a kayak ride up the canal, a few times all the way to Capri.

The home is spacious and relaxing; your vacation begins immediately as you feel the stresses of the everyday grind melt away. And really, isn't that what vacations are for? We will return to this beautiful home again.

By : Suzanne M


The house is beautiful, large, well appointed. We had everything we needed. Our family of 9 had a wonderful time. The first three days had us sequestered in the house because of the weather but it did not pose a problem because the swimming pool provide the perfect activity for my grandchildren and the adults enjoyed the spa. We had meals on the lani and the men fished of the dock every day even in the rain. Geroge was very accessible and helpful, he answered all of my quesitions, he is the perfect host. The best thing of our stay was my grands asked could they come back again they loved the house.

Great home.

Great home and was as described. Very professional owner to deal with. We would stay here again.

Chris, Jennifer and Xander.

We had an amazing time. The house was perfect and the Phy's made us feel welcome. We enjoyed heading to the beach in the mornings, then coming back to the house to hang out by the pool in the afternoon. The house was lacking for nothing. We didn't really cook in the kitchen (we took advantage of the great seafood restaurants), but the kitchen had everything you would need.

We fell in love with Marco Island while we were there. In June we thought the weather was perfect - mid 80's and a breeze everyday. Being from Missouri, we didn't think it was humid. We drove to Tigertail beach several times and was awestruck every time by the white sand, the gentle waves, that you could walk a long ways out and not worry about currents, and the mostly EMPTY beach. We felt like it was our own private beach!

We also enjoyed a trip to the Everglades, deep sea fishing (I caught a shark!), a drive to the Keys, but most of all we just enjoyed relaxing. The week was over way too quickly.

By : Jennifer W

Great Family Vacation Home!.

We cannot stop talking about this house. Perfect for two families. The kids had the entire upstairs while the parents each had their own master in the first floor. I've rented many homes on Marco and this place was the cleanest I can remember. Everyone loved the pool and hot tub. Caught many different species of fish off the dock. George let us dock a pontoon for the week and we never saw so many dolphins! I have told the rest of my siblings who rent in Marco about this house as I am sure they would be impressed as I was.

By : kevin B

Beautiful Home.

This property was perfect for our three-generations of family. We spent two weeks making memories in this home and would recommend it to anyone wishing to have the Marco Island experience. The owners were very responsive to our questions and we look forward to returning to this property in the future. The Grundstrom Family from Michigan

By : Jim and Pam G


My husband and I went went with friends to vacation at this property and was blown away with its beauty when we walked in. We fished off the dock a little bit and saw a couple of dolphins and a manatee. Can't write a review without mentioning the master bath and shower. Wow! The owner was super to work with. It was a great get away!

Wonderful Family Vacation.

This house was everything that is listed. Wonderful location, easy to find, close access to shopping, restaurants, and beach. This is our first family vacation as 'empty nesters' with our adult children and their significant others and everyone loved staying at this home. The house was homey and had everything we needed. Plenty of space for all 8 of us. The pool, hot tub and dock were wonderful. The kitchen was perfect for cooking dinner or making lunches to take to the beach. Outdoor electric grill was a little tricky to learn to cook on but worked perfectly for burgers and brats. There are bikes, fishing poles and pool items for use. The views from dock were amazing, and beautiful sunsets every evening. We even saw dolphins swim by twice during our week long stay. George was very helpful and easy to work with and was always just a text or email away. We would highly recommend this home for your next Marco Island get-a-way. Thank you for a wonderful vacation.

By : Steve B

Fabulous Family Vacation Home!.

We just enjoyed an amazing week at this great home with our family. Perfect layout for multi generational family time. We had our 82 year old mother with us, along with our son, daughter in law and 13 and 4 yr old grandchildren. The kids loved it. The house was supplied with toys, games, videos, pool games, bikes and even bed time story books!! The pool is just the right size for family fun and the dock was so convenient to dock the boat we rented for the week. My son loves to cook and was blown away by the number of variety of kitchen gadgets, he was able to put together a gourmet meal with ease. We were even blessed with perfect weather, with only one mid week thunder storm that allowed 'the ladies' to do some shopping at the very convenient mall of specialty shops only two blocks away. A very adequate publix was also in that mall, so made it very easy to pop out for anything that we needed. Beds were very comfortable and there were plenty of linens! It was truly a dream vacation!!

By : Denise B

We've stayed here 3 times.

This place is the best. My family (age range from 3-65) has been vacationing in Marco for the past 10 years. Once we found this house, we stopped looking at other places to stay. This is by far the best house/owners we've ever had. George is always quick to respond with anything and the house is always perfectly charming, cozy, and yet stately (in a good way). The pool and dock are the best. The room setups are great too. We'll be back!

Wonderful Thanksgiving Vacation.

My family (all from the Cincinnati, OH area) - consisted of my 77 year old mother, my sister, her husband, their four children (ages 16 to 1), my husband, my adult daughter, and her boyfriend. The home was exactly as described. We celebrated Thanksgiving in the home, and with the double oven, and fully stocked spice cabinet, we were able to have a Thanksgiving to remember. Any questions we had, George was just a text away. All the wonderful restaurants and grocery stores were less than a five minute drive. The master bedroom and bath were a dream and the pool and hot tub were used and enjoyed daily. Additionally the welcome bottle of champagne in the fridge was the icing on the cake. We would recommend this gorgeous home a thousand times over. Thank you George and Michelle for sharing your magnificent home with us!

By : Linda N

Excellent house! Neighborhood and Owner.

George was excellent to work with. We brought our parents and three children (8, 11 and 14). The house was beautiful inside and out. The pool and whirlpool were perfect. The best for us was the boat dock. George let us tie up a boat for the week. It's a nice 25 minutes ride out to the gulf. Can't say enough about our stay. We've stayed at others but will make this our permanent place from now on.

By : Rob G

Amazing time on Marco Island!.

We so enjoyed staying at this property. It is absolutely beautiful and was perfect for our family. All of the rooms are decorated very nicely and it was perfectly clean when we arrived. It's in a very convenient location and the hot tub and pool are icing on the cake. We look forward to staying here again in the future!

Thank you George for sharing your home with us. You were very responsive and helpful and we really appreciate it!

By : Whitney B

Beautiful home with all the amenities!.

Your home was everything we could have expected and the perfect place for our family vacation! The grandkids loved the pool and fishing from the dock. The bicycles were put to good use. The home was within walking or bicyling distance of much of the island. We have always loved Marco Island and this placed just made it more enjoyable. The family is already talking of plans to stay again in the future.

Lovely Marco Island home.

My review is a mixed bag of comments. We were very unlucky that Florida was having the worse rain for a very long time. The roads were flooded for days so had to stay in the home for three days. We could not use the outside space for many days unfortunately. But that is not the fault of the house itself. The house was beautifully appointed and very spacious. The owners had provided everything we needed. The beds were wonderfully comfortable

The advert says that there is a twin bedroom but however all the bedrooms are double which actually caused a few problems for one of our couples who particularly wanted a twin room. There are not enough bedside tables and lights to read by. Minor though it is, an electric kettle would have been great. The hob kettle is not flat and takes ten minutes to boil!! Unfortunately a house is being built next door and we had to put up with a lot of hammering when we did manage to get outside. BUT the building noise I would think is near to completion.

We were disappointed with the island. You really need to be a water lover to enjoy it. Otherwise it is a huge area of smart houses. We did find some nice restaurants to enjoy though.

All in all the house was lovely,but the weather totally ruined our stay.

I would recommend this home if the weather is great and you really like beaches and water sports.

By : Lesley E

Wonderful home!.

We had an absolute wonderful vacation. Thank you for opening up your home and allowing us to make lifelong memories. My son and son in-law enjoyed fishing off the deck and even had a Dolphin swim by, one evening. The house was equipped with everything needed. It was perfect!

Thanks again

great vacation with all the family,.

The home is not only beautiful and comfortable for 10 adults and two boats; but a perfect location on the canal to get your boat out to the Gulf with ease. Thanks for the memories George!! Our family had a blast and look forward to a return.

By : Gregory W

Great place to stay.

Marco Memories was a great place to atay. Close to shops and restaurants and the owners were wonderful to work with. Daughter got married on Marco and it was a perfect place to relax after the wedding.

By : Nancy

Great home with great spaces and great location.

After different rentals for each of the past 6 years, we are happy to say that this was the best rental we've had. The home was well cared for and the spaces were perfect for our group of 7. The location couldn't have been better. Perhaps the most important consideration in renting is to find owners that are responsive whenever an issue comes up. While there, we had no real "issues" for us, we asked to increase the pool temperature setting and it was done before we hung up the phone. It was quite evident that George and Michelle work hard to make their rental a great experience for us. Well done!

We would certainly recommend their home to our friends and family.

By : Mike T

Great week on Marco.

My husband and I have been vacationing on Marco Island for the past five years. This year we invited two other couples to join us. Everyone fell in love with George’s home. It’s exquisite in both decor and comfort. This four bedroom home is ideal for multiple couples since each bedroom has either a king size bed or queen size bed, no putting up with twins! Not only are the bed sizes perfect, each has its own private bathroom. I’ve looked and booked enough homes on the island to know when I’ve found a true gem!! I hope it’s available when I get mine and my husbands calendars together to plan our Marco vacation in 2019.

By : Kathleen N

House was very nice!.

We had a great time and would certainly stay here again. The only downside was the pool was too cold to swim in but we had friends on the island so we went to the their pool. The boys had fun fishing on the dock and the house was close to a lot of good restaurants! Little natty bugs around in the house which was a little annoying at times. Beds were very comfortable! Everyone had their own bathroom! Overall, it was a Fantastic week! Thanks George for sharing your home!

The property was beautiful and centrally located near beaches, shopping and restaurants. The property owner George Phy is great to work with and very accommodating. His home was stocked with all we required and more. We would not hesitate to work with him again and recommend him to anyone looking for a relaxing Florida getaway!

a fantastic location & beautiful home!!.

We were at this lovely home for one month! It was perfect for our family that came to visit! The king size beds in each bedroom were a plus!! We had no issues and the owner was quick to get back to us with questions and ANY issues that popped up. Such an enjoyable stay!!! (We were there the month of April- weather was perfect, getting warmer each day)

Excellent stay in Marco.

House is huge. We had a total of 5 guests and we had plenty of space. Pool and hot tub were very nice. Kitchen was well stocked with spices and a few condiments so we didn’t need to go shopping for those. Beds were plenty comfy. We brought our 10 month old and there were many baby items for him for the pool and a high chair at the house which helped a ton. Everything about the house exceeded expectations. A truly relaxing and luxurious stay.

Open and spacious.

Overall, we had a very good time as a family. The size and layout of the home made it possible for us to enjoy our own personal space as well as come together as often as we wanted to.

What we liked:

1. The number of bedrooms and bathrooms was perfect

2. The size and openness of the home

3. The outdoor pool and quick-to-heat spa

4. The pool toys and fully stocked kitchen

5. Easy access to shopping and restaurants

A Beautiful Place On A Beautiful Island.

We stayed for one week and just enjoyed the home so much. We have been coming to Marco Island for 28 years and this so far was the most beautiful place we have stayed. The home was welcoming and functional for our family of 8 , which included the grandchildren. They loved the pool.

We couldn't have asked for better weather . We still find "new" things to do in Marco along with the "traditions" . We even did new "escape room" on the Island.

The Phy family opens their home to you and makes it easy to function and enjoy your vacation.

Our family game nights in the "upstairs game" room allowed the children to sleep without being disturbed. The multiple bathrooms with each bedroom was a "plus" .

Their list of suggestions and options and restaurants answered any of our questions.

The vacation rental was wonderful and we hope to go back again in the future.

Party on the Island.

I rented this home for my extended family that was visiting for a family celebration. It was the perfect location, as they could walk to and from our home with ease. The guests all enjoyed the home and its amenities. The property is spacious, comfortable and well appointed.

Thank you, George and family for sharing your lovely home.

Home away from home..

It’s the perfect home to come and stay at while enjoying all the beauty of Marco Island. From the moment we walked through the doors it felt like ours. Thank you for allowing us to share your home with our children. We’ve made so many wonderful memories and can not wait to come back.
