A Note about Renting a Property on Marco Island...

There are a lot of things to consider when renting a property on Marco... is it close to the beach access?  can I walk to restaurants?  does the deck get sun all day long? name but a few! 

Most Marco Island Rental homes have screen lanai areas to the rear of the property.  These protect occupants from bugs and, in many cases enclose private heated pools, and/or hot tubs.  Some homes are landlocked but many are situated on Marco’s 90 miles of inland canals.  Many have private docks where you can moor rental boats/waverunners.  If a house is said to be “indirect access” it means that there are bridges between it and the Gulf of Mexico.  “Direct access” it means the canal has no bridges between it and the Gulf so it is suitable for large boats and sailboats.  Houses whose rear lanai areas face south or west are the most desirable for sunset views and maximum sun, especially in winter when cooler winds tend to come from the north.

So, although Marco is relatively small, it is still advisable to use the services of a rental agent with local knowledge to help you find the property that suits your needs.  Also, if you use a local agent, they will have someone available to resolve any issues that may arise during your stay. 

And, one final piece of advice... be aware that Marco has been discovered and the good rental properties get snapped up
quickly - so make your booking as early as you can!
