Property type cottage


About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Nestled at the end of a very quiet cul-de-sac street, this vintage old Florida fishing village style cottage has amazing wide open water views. Our lush tropical garden features a koi pond (currently drained and not operational) surrounded by palm trees. It is a short bike ride to the white sandy beach. With approximately 2,000 square feet of well appointed and comfortable living space, this is one of the Marco Island’s best.

The Marco Island Cottage is a tropical paradise that still maintains the old South Floridian charm. It is perfect for week-long vacations, weekend getaways, writer’s retreats, house-hunting visits, and temporary lodging for relocated executives. The Cottage was built in 1988 as a wood frame cottage on stilts. The property has gone through extensive renovations recently including: new roof, new siding, new deck board, new central air conditioning system, new pool heater, new water heater, new kitchen cabinets, new granite counter tops, new appliances, new bath vanities, new wet bar, new floor, new furniture, new ceiling fans, new dock and so on. The Cottage has two levels with 3 bedrooms and two full baths on the upper level and a storage room on the lower level. The master bedroom has a walk-in closet and the master bath has a whirlpool tub and a shower. The open floor plan of the living room and dining room with 8 sliding doors lets you enjoy the views of open bay water and the tropical garden. The Marco Island Cottage’s 1200 sq. foot wrap-around deck provides a perfect place to bathe in the sun. While you lounge on the deck, don’t forget our large dock which extends 30 feet into the water. There are a variety of fish living under the dock and if you are lucky, you may even see dolphins swimming by. The Cottage is close to beach, restaurants, shopping and all Marco Island has to offer. This quiet and peaceful setting is your true tropical paradise.

Gorgeous Cottage on the Water

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our weekend stay at this gorgeous Marco Island cottage. The owner was available and communication was very easy. The location is perfect and we really enjoyed the pool overlooking the water. We will definitely be back!

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Nice, roomy house in a great location. The upstairs living area is comfortable and in good condition. Perfect for a family of four, even though more could fit. The downstairs area by the pool was a bit dated as was the look of the house from the curb. That said, everything was clean and in working order.

Beautiful Property (one thought for the owner)

  • 4 of 5

Great cottage. Loved the pool and the backyard access to the water way. Very nice that we had access to the two person kayak and paddle board. Walkable to the beach if you don't mind a nice long walk.

One comment to Michael, the owner. When guests pay for 4 days at your cottage, it seems wrong to say that you have supplies for two days. Six people need more than one extra roll of toilet paper. A roll or two of paper towels allows guests to keep the kitchen clean. Why have a coffee maker if you don't supply $2 worth of coffee filters. It really has nothing to do with the cost to go out and buy supplies. These seem like common courtesies that would come with a beautiful but expensive place to stay.

Keep Looking....

  • 1 of 5

If this home looked like it does in the pictures, I could justify the price. The home was not clean. By "not clean", the floors were dirty, gum on the floor of the guest shower, chicken leg in the nightstand drawer, cabinets not clean. There are not bicycles as advertised. There is one broken bike. There is a cayak but the owner told us not to use it because we might get wet. Huh? The pool and dock area are nice but the pool lights do not work. The owner told our family to be quiet because noise travels across the water. So our children are supposed to be quiet while they swim??? The dishwasher didn't work. No grills and the owner said that was because renters would not keep them clean. So, charge a grill deposit. Other properties charging rates this high include a gas grill for use. There is only one tv in the house. While we didn't travel to Florida to watch tv, it's common to include TV's in bedrooms. The master bed is literally, like sleeping on a concrete floor. The most uncomfortable bed I've ever slept in. We were also told by the owner that the house is for sale and the realtor may do showings. Are you kidding me? No way would we feel comfortable with a realtor showing a property with all of our valuables in the house. We use VRBO properties frequently, and I would say this was the biggest disappointment to date.

Owner's Response: We received a phone call from Marco Island police whom informed us about excessive noise from our property. The excessive noise is a violation of the city code. I immediately passed on the information to our guest and asking them to keep the noise down. Our house rule states that if the guests who violate the rules will be removed from our property. Obviously this did not go well with the guest. They refuse to obey the rules and found reasons to argue with us about why they could not keep the voice down. They left our property with a big mess and rated us one star. This is really a shame!

Dirty. TV didn't work. Not enough TV in house or bedrooms.

Owner's Response: We contract our cleaning service to a local cleaning company. They have done more than 500 cleanings for us over the years. We received very few ( less than one percent ) complains. If there is a cleanness problem, guest should contact us immediately so that we can send the cleaning company back to take care the problem. We checked the TV and noticed it was unplugged from the wall outlet. The TV is working fine. We offer only one 55' HD TV in the living room. No TVs in the bedrooms. We made it very clear on our website. All guests knew it before renting our Cottage. We are surprised this guest would use this public information to rate us one star.
