It’s almost impossible to find a place to stay on Marco Island that isn’t waterfront. More than 80% of the properties overlook some sort of water. Whether it’s the Gulf of Mexico or one of the numerous bays and canals, Marco Island waterfront rentals offer some of the most incredible views and fun vacations in Southwest Florida.
Let’s take a look at the best locations for vacation rentals on the island and the experience that they bring to the table.
Luxury Waterfront Condos
Aside from a few houses located in Hideaway Beach Club, the beachfront on Marco Island is almost entirely occupied by condominiums. You’ll find the most luxurious condos in Cape Marco on the south end of the beach. To the north Hideaway Beach Club offers amazing options. Madeira, in the middle of the beach, is the newest of the three communities. If you head south on Collier Boulevard from Tigertail Beach, you will pass by several other swanky properties nearly as grand.
Like a hood ornament on a Rolls-Royce, Madeira stands proudly in the center of Marco Beach. The beachfront condos of Madeira are a paradise within the already compelling beauty of the island. World-class in every way, tennis courts, heated pools, spa, fitness center, and private beaches are just some of the amenities you can expect.
The condos invariably come with a furnished balcony where you can catch breathtaking sunsets on the horizon. The views to the north and south ends of the beach are incredible.
Cape Marco is a gated community of six luxury high-rise buildings. They are located on the southwest point overlooking the Gulf of Mexico and the Ten Thousand Islands. Like Madeira, the amenity package at Cape Marco is out of this world.
Hideaway Beach Club
The condos and homes of Hideaway Beach are exceptional by all accounts. This luxury gated community on the north end of the beach is loaded with amenities. Enjoy dinner at the fantastic restaurant on the beach. The plethora of luxury amenities even includes a 9-hole golf course. Hideaway’s great location means the beach condos overlook both the Gulf Coast and the mouth of the Marco River. Hardly a moment goes by without boat, pelican and dolphin traffic.
Marco Island Waterfront Rental Homes
Another waterfront option is the array of vacation homes on the canals and bays. Instead of facing the Gulf, these properties lie almost entirely on the canals. The canals impart a kind of tranquility compared to the lively beachfront.
Most Marco Island waterfront house rentals are by these canals and offer a completely different experience than the condos. The majority of listings have private docks and at least two or three bedrooms. You’ll find all the necessary amenities for an enjoyable stay, perhaps even a heated pool.
These houses are perfect for retired couples and smaller families that want a more homey atmosphere while staying on the island. The abundance of space allows for larger gatherings, and the access to canals provides sailing opportunities. If you have a passion for fishing, you can even join one of the fishing clubs. Many are just a short walk to the beach too.
Depending on the size and location, Marco Island waterfront house rentals can go from under $130 a night for a cozy 2-bedroom home to $3000/night for a super-luxury estate with tennis courts and Gulf access.

Hidden Waterfront Rentals
You can find incredible Marco Island Waterfront luxury rentals in other areas of the island that just as special as the famous condos. To begin with, you can find a lot of house rentals around Tigertail Beach – a quieter area perfect for swimming and sunbathing.
Even if you opt for a place to stay off the beaten path, you’ll hardly miss out on the fun. The island is small and every property is close to the beaches, shopping and restaurants. There really isn’t a vacation home on the island from which you can’t easily reach the beach by bike. The public beaches are tidy and beautiful, not to be outdone by the nightlife and various activities around town.
Always at the Waterfront
You can’t go wrong with a town that’s almost completely on the waterfront. It’s only a matter of the property rental type. If you want to be in the midst of it all, shoot for a beach front property along South Collier Boulevard.
On the other hand, if you prefer a relaxing vacation, opt for a rental property overlooking a bay or one of the canals. A beautiful Marco Island vacation home is really what we’re known for. Also, the less-crowded areas on the eastern part of town can be enjoyable if your family vacation dreams include peaceful nights by the water.
