Our Florida vacation rental is located 16 miles south of Naples, Florida on the largest of the Florida Everglades 10,000 islands. Marco Island is known for its spectacular white sand beaches, fishing, and warm, sunny weather. Its 3-mile crescent beach, culminating in Tigertail Beach, is truly magnificent. The whole island has been developed in a tasteful and relaxing manner, with an abundance of shopping and restaurants right on the island. Ft. Myers, the closest airport, is a mere 50 minutes away.
In 2004, 'Gulfshore Life' voted Tigertail Beach as the very best beach in southwest Florida. The magazine's panel raved about the stark natural beauty of Tigertail Beach.
There is something for everyone on and around Marco Island Florida whether you are looking for rest and relaxation or something more active. Just a short walk or bike ride away is Tigertail Beach. Swim in the calm waters of the gulf as the pelicans dive for fish, or stroll over to Sand Dollar Island and find a variety of shells and bigger surf for boogie boarding. Dolphins are often seen within yards of the shoreline too. Rentals of cabanas, windsurfers, and small watercraft are available at Tigertail, as well as food, drink and a wonderful play area for children.
If you enjoy fishing, be sure to include a charter trip into the gulf, or backwater fishing with the many guides available. Motor boats and wave runners are also available from nearby marinas. Other leisure activities include tennis, sailing and parasailing. Golf is especially popular with several championship courses available in the area for public use.
The Everglades National Park is just down the road, with airboat and swamp-buggy rides available at a number of locations. There are wildlife centers including the zoo at Naples.
