This beach home is a few blocks to the beautiful Marco Island beaches! The home is perfect for riding bikes to the beaches, shops and restaurants. We have tried to think of everything to make this a hassle free retreat! We are always working on updates!
Large screed patio with a large yard with many fruit trees. THIS HOUSE IS .7 MILES TO MARCO ISLAND BEACH ACCESS AT 300 S. COLLIER BLVD. AND 1.5 MILES TO TIGERTAIL BEACH COMMUNITY PARK ON HERNANDO DR.

All areas, except garage.
Other things to note
Gas grill and bikes as well as cooler, beach chair, and umbrella provided.
TRANSPORTATION: A CARR Transportation. We discovered that this car company provides complimentary rides to several restaurants/bars to and from any location on the island, which was great for avoiding difficult parking situations and also to make sure we got home safely after a few drinks.!
