Marco Island is really an oasis in Southwest Florida. With the Southwest Gulf Coast and our crescent beach on the one side and the Everglades National Park on the other side, Marco Island house rentals offer a front-row seat to a Florida paradise.
There are a variety of Marco Island house rentals, most of which are near the beach or at least very close it. For many, houses make the best vacation rentals because they’re roomy and private. Generally speaking, they are much cheaper than hotels, but also offer more comfort, flexibility and freedom.
Read on and find out everything about house rentals on Marco Island.
Benefits of Renting a House over a Condo
While beachfront condos are the most popular, they aren’t always the best choice. A vacation home rental is usually more comfortable than a condo. Most homes on Marco Island offer more than one bedroom, private pools, fully equipped kitchens, as well as bathrooms, flat-screen TVs, Wi-Fi connection, washers, dryers, additional sofas, and more. The best part is that they’re all just minutes away from our beautiful white-sand beaches.
Also, many of these houses have a boat dock in case you want to rent a boat. The amenities differ from one home to another but the range of options is almost endless.
Having a private pool, hot tub, or Jacuzzi in the backyard is a reason enough to opt for a house. Also, some of these rental homes offer grills outside which you can fire up and make a barbecue for your friends and family.
If you are traveling in a group, you’ll have more space and freedom in a home than in a condo. The kids can play outside while you kick back and relax.
Pet-Friendly House Rentals
Pets love to visit Marco Island. Most of the island is pet-friendly. But if you are considering a home rental, it’s important to check with the owner or the agency to determine whether or not they allow pets. If your pet is allowed to visit, expect an additional security deposit to be held during your visit.
Rental Homes with Private Pools
Most private home rentals on Marco Island have private heated pools. The rental listing will usually describe the pool.
Rental homes are the perfect choice for family vacations or vacationing with a group of friends. They’re roomy enough to ensure that everyone can enjoy each other’s company and still enjoy their privacy when needed.
All of our pool homes for rent offer terrific amenity packages. These homes can have from one up to five bedrooms. Flat-screen TVs and Wi-Fi internet are a given, and so are washers, dryers, modern kitchens, and bathrooms with all you need. Also, most of these homes have wonderful landscapes surrounding them, with palm trees and other tropical foliage everywhere.
Waterfront Homes for Rent
With over 80 miles of man-made canals, most homes for rent on Marco Island are waterfront homes. Actually, there are only 16,000 inhabitants, and most of them were snowbirds who decided to retire here.
These homes tend to come with only the best amenities. Some of them have docks, pools, multiple bedrooms, grills, and hot tubs. You have to check this with your travel agency or directly with the rental company.
Boating Around Marco Island FL
Boating on Marco Island is a must for everyone who loves adventure. This is one of the hottest destinations for cruises along the Gulf of Mexico. There is an abundance of cruises and other boating experiences you can choose from if you want to sail all around the island.
You can go cruising on a small paddle boat, sticking close to the shoreline. This is a fun and safe activity when you’re vacationing with kids. Don’t forget about the dolphin tours, which are most children’s favorite activity. Our playful dolphins love to entertain.
Another boating trip you shouldn’t miss is the Ten Thousand Islands tour. Experienced guides lead these tours through many creeks and inlets. Also, you will see intricate mangrove forests, as well as diamond white beaches all along the shore.
We love to jump on the boat and go to Keewaydin Island or grab lunch in Naples, FL.

Booking a Rental Home
There are plenty of places where you can book a rental home on Marco Island. You can call a rental company like Sun King Vacation Rentals or contact the owners directly through Airbnb or VRBO. You could even use Craigslist if you’re feeling adventurous.
The best advice is to book a rental home on Marco Island as soon as possible. This splendid place is a popular tourist attraction and the demand for our rentals is very high. The best deals are booked well in advance, so you have to be fast.
Booking even a year in advance is not a bad idea. It might sound extreme, but it’s not. Since winter and spring are the peak seasons on Marco Island, it can be difficult to find accommodations during that part of the year. On the other hand, late bookings do have one upside – if you’re very lucky, you’ll come across a great last-minute deal.
Each owner or rental company employs housekeeping services and the maids will take care of the cleaning. However, as you might expect, there are housekeeping policies in place. Take care of your vacation rental to avoid extra cleaning charges.
