Luxury abounds in this custom built tropical paradise that will astound even the most discriminate guest.
The first thing that catches your eye is the breath-taking two-story wall of windows facing the converging waterways. Light floods the room. Beyond the sea of glass is an elongated heated pool and underwater bar. A gorgeous statue of 'tres serenas' stand tall at pool's edge. Beyond lies remarkable views of the Marco River waterways, dock and an over-water sunning deck.
Outdoor Living: it's why you come to Marco Island!! Enjoy Marco Island’s balmy temperatures under Geranium's lanai and serve yourself at her stone summer kitchen and outdoor dining area. Geranium's Master suite is from a storybook. A huge, king, true four-poster bed speaks of fairy tale dreams. The Ionic posts are matched by columns of similar style framing the step-in marble Jacuzzi tub in the Master bath. Wrapped in granite, his and her vanities and a ladies' powder station come included. The shower thoughtfully includes a tiled bench for sitting while showering. Illuminated, double-tray ceiling loom overhead.
In fact, double-tray illuminated ceilings are included throughout the house. You might have missed this detail when awed by the walls of glass and water. In which case, the elegant formal dining room with statuesque columns might have gone unnoticed as would the entrance to the private office/den just off the front entrance. There's an executive writing desk and chair. Computer printer and wi-fi router serving the entire house with high-speed cable internet access.
The great room has double Bombay ceiling fans, supple leather sectional couch and easy service from the kitchen which opens to the great room over a granite conversation bar. The kitchen appliances are all top-end quality.
One more thing you might have missed is the stairway to the second floor and the balconies around the great room. But before going upstairs check out the guest suite, with another pillow-top queen four poster. The adjoining bath includes an enclosed water closet.
The high spot of the home, literally and figuratively, is the second floor. At the top of the stairs is a comfortable family and entertainment room. A comfy leather sofa, leather chair and ottoman provide seating for viewing the 52" Cable-driven Projection TV. The room also provide access to the secodn-story catwalk along the pool, and stunning water views.
A second floor gallery also leads to two more guest rooms, each with its own balcony area and second-level views. One guest suite has a king four-poster bed and a 27" Cable driven flat screen TV. The third bedroom, also on the second floor, is furnished with two queen beds and details in the Key West style. In keeping with the no-expense-spared approach of Geranium, the third guest bedroom has independent climate control for the comfort of guest with separate temperature preferences.
For southern style and privacy, all windows are fitted with plantation shutters at Geranium.
Geranium is a stately property made available to public for rental only 20 weeks per year. Take advantage and be one of the lucky ones!!

We recently stayed on Marco Island, the home we rented from Marco Escapes was top notch. I was very pleased with this company.
They were excellent from start to finish! Thank you Jason!
We will definitely rent again.

Jason at Marco Escapes was fabulous! He was very professional and prompt. The home met our needs perfectly. With nine adults and one infant we had the enough room for everyone. The home was furnished with everything we needed from linens to pots and pans, bikes and even a skim board. Jason referred us to a company who delivered a crib, high chair and stroller for reasonable rental fee. Marco Island is very easy to get around and the location of the home was very convient. This was one of the best family vacation we had. The fisherman caught fish and the kids enjoyed time at the beach and the best was "gathering" for family time at the home. The thing I liked least was... paying for parking, so the $8.00 each time we went to the beach was something I was not use to. (not to bad for a week of fun)
