Description from the manager
The pool is big and the beach is close. This 1,600 square foot house sleeps eight, with one king bed, one queen, two twins and a sleeper sofa. It has two bathrooms and a two-car garage.
The heated pool on the lanai isn’t one of those pencil thin pools. It’s enormous, and the southern exposure means all-day sun, so the kids will never come out of the water, which isn’t such a bad thing, since it means you get to recline on a sun lounger looking out at the emerald canal lined with palm trees, while the family barbeque chef fires up the gas grill.
Sit at the table beside a garden of lush plants and you’ll feel like you’re at a deluxe waterfront café, which in a way you are, since you get to enjoy ripe, juicy mangoes from the tree in the front yard.
After lunch, go down to your private dock and see if you can spot a passing dolphin or manatee, or do a little fishing.
The tile-floored interior is brightened by natural light through floor-to-ceiling windows. Potted plants and decorative touches like a palm tree clock create a tranquil feeling of seaside living.
If you’re still having trouble getting the kids to come out of the water, try these magic words: “Hey, kids, there’s a pool table inside.” Works every time.
The gourmet kitchen features two-level granite counters and all the modern appliances you need to prepare everything from a family dinner to blended cocktails to sip by the pool as the sun goes down.
The house offers three different cooling devices – air conditioning, ceiling fans and night winds off the canal. It comes with comfort-enhancing amenities like internet, cable, a big screen TV and TVs in the bedrooms. It also has bikes and beach essentials like an umbrella, beach chairs, cooler, beach toys and a cart to carry everything on your short walk to the warm sands and turquoise waters of Paradise Coast.
Another short walk takes you to Marco Golf and Garden, a miniature golf course in the midst of an award-winning garden. You can also walk to Marco Island’s premier shopping destination, Marco Walk Plaza, where you’ll find movie theaters, specialty shops, fine dining and much more.
The location is perfect and your vacation will be, too.

“Great Stay in Marco Island”
We really enjoyed our stay. We especially liked the bicycles and beach equipment available for use at no extra cost. We were close enough to walk to the beach. The house is in a very safe and quiet area. We would stay there again.

“Perfect Location - Gorgeous Home - Wonderful Management”
This vacation home is perfect! You really can't get much closer to the ocean since oceanfront property is pretty much reserved for hotels/condos. This house is within walking distance (5-10 min.) to putt putt, a movie theater, tons of restaurants/bars, shopping, and a public beach access. The beach access just happens to be conveniently located at Stilts. This is the best place to watch the sunset and grab a bite to eat or just a drink. I was there almost every night; the people are so friendly.
The house itself is gorgeous inside and out. It has everything you could possibly need for your vacation. Just pack your clothes and toiletries and you are set :) The patio and pool get ample sun! You will not be disappointed. The pool is kept clean, and the water temperature is amazingly comfortable for day or night swimming. The property is sitting on the canal, which provides tons of excitement. You can fish off the dock (fishing equipment is provided) or just enjoy the company of a random dolphin or manatee. But, I have to say, my favorite part of the house had to be the mango tree in the front yard. Oh my goodness! I was spoiled. I've been missing them every day since I left.
The management team and owner are a wonderful group of people to work with. I did have a couple minor issues while I was visiting for the month (it happens), and they were taken care of that day or the next. All emails and phone calls are returned immediately. I can't tell you how much this means to me. It is so difficult to find prompt and friendly service nowadays (sad, I know) but this group does an amazing job.
I will definitely be visiting Marco again, and I you can find me relaxing at 577 Seagrape. Seriously, look no further. I have researched and researched (it's what I do for a living) and this is the best. Enjoy!

“Week in Paradise”
The house is very well stocked. We were two families staying together and I must say that it was big enough where we weren't on top of each other. The only thing I can report negative is that its probably time they change the glass sliding door, I think we all built up our muscles trying to open/close it.
Response from the manager, Marco Island Vacation Properties - 09/19/2012
The glass sliding door has been fixed!

“Great value and location in Marco Island”
Recently had the pleasure of renting out this property for our week long vacation in Marco Island. The property was updated, clean, and full of essential necessities. The location was convenient; close to the movie theater, lots of restaurants and walking distance to the beach. We took advantage of the boat dock in the back and rented a boat to use for the week. I would highly recommend this property for a family getaway to Marco Island.

“The location of the object is TOP, 5 minute walk to the beach!! ”
The house was unfortunately not in the best condition, the beds were very old! The pool area could use a renovation!

Nice house, good location, we really enjoyed the stay.
Sarasota, FL, United States
“We loved it!”
The house and location are excellent! We loved it, our dog did not want to go home. The only complaint was that the pool turned green by Wed when the pool co arrived, mainly weather related I think, and they added so much chlorine it was not usable the rest of the week. In spite of that we will go back!

We had such a great, relaxing time here at 577 Seagrape. It was the perfect place to be!

“Loved the pool”
We loved the house and the pool. We spend as much or more time in the pool than at the beach. Nice quiet neighborhood. We had a very relaxing vacation.

“Money, momey, money”
This was our second year in the home. We were hoping to continue to rent the same house for 6 weeks year after year. However, the price went up $2000 in two years! We felt that was ridiculous. We compared it to the prices of the surrounding homes. They were larger and less money.Where would it end? We are not returning to that home.
I believe the owner changed the cleaning service. We had to scrub the house from top to bottom when we arrived.
The management office, Andrew in particular, continued his exceptional service, We are really sorry that things did not work out.
OH, United States
We liked it so much that we booked it for net year!
Southampton, Hampshire, United Kingdom
My husband, 4 year old and I loved this place! The location is great as you can walk to a choice of restaurants and the beach. The water at the back was brilliant, we saw a manatee the first day and then had 3 dolphins visit us another time which was amazing! It is at the end of a waterway so quite peaceful & not too many neighbours. We spent hours in the pool & appreciated the little touches like extra pool toys & toys for the beach! Would definitely recommend.

“Home fron Home”
From day one of starting the rental process - Andrew Vale was exceptional and made me feel at ease with the procedure and his confidence in the property-nothing was too much trouble for this guy-thank you. Excellent property and we felt at ease/home immediatly. All equipment was of a very high standard and everywhere was spotlessly clean. When we experienced an issue- someone was on hand to sort immediatley. My own personal view (not shared by my husband) is that the lounge/family room is too dark but I feel sure this will be addressed. The master bedroom... wow that bed is so comfortable and again quality of all bedlinen / towells are top notch. The pool is a very good size but the lanai needs some attention. Bathrooms are fabulous again so clean and good size. Location- this met all our requirements so close to the beach/ restaurants and bars. Dont think we could have done better than rent this property.( Garage has new bikes(2) and everything you need to take a family to the beach.
“Sue H.'s review of 3/2 Waterfront Home”
The property owners have gone out of their way to make sure every thing you could possibly want and need are supplied.We would give both the home and rental agent rave reviews
“A wonderful month in lovely surroundings!”
We had never been away for a month before. We were nervous...how would it be living in someone's home? All that worry for naught. The home is lovely. Everything we needed was at our fingertips. All concerns were handled promptly and pleasantly. We were so pleased that we booked the home for 6 weeks next year.
Response from the manager, Marco Island Vacation Properties - 04/05/2011
In the words of Barbara: "When you rent a home, it is crucial to have an "answer person" you can rely on. Andrew Vale was an extraordinary resource! He was always a friendly phone call away. He responded immediately and never sounded bothered. Andrew is a large part of the reason we rebooked!"
“Great stay in Marco!”
Andrew Vale was the very best and the property was everything he promised it to be. My only suggestion for improvement is to buy some new bikes. Other than was perfect!! Great Job Andrew!
“Christmas at Marco Island”
Walking to dinners or movies with the boat in the backyard in a tropical setting was fantastic. The southern exposure pool was just what the wife needed. We did not want to leave.
