About

Sitting on one of the island’s largest rooftop observation decks, looking down at palm trees lining the sparkling blue water, you half expect a bus filled with tourists to pull up. No, this rooftop balcony is all yours, and so is the rest of the three-story, 5,200 square foot all-modern house.

It sleeps ten, with three queen beds, two twins and one sleeper sofa, and it comes with 3.5 bathrooms, along with an additional pool bath and a two-car garage.

When you step onto the spacious lanai and see tables overlooking the water, along with an outdoor kitchen and gas grill, you half expect a maître de to welcome you to the waterfront restaurant. No, this lanai is all yours.

The curving, custom designed heated beach entrance pool, with raised hot tub, puts you so close to the converging waterways you can hear little waves crest along the dock and seawall. The southern exposure means all-day sun shines down on the pool.

Five star luxury isn’t reserved for hotels. The exquisitely designed interior was furnished under the theory that you can’t have too much style and comfort. Natural light flows in from windows on every floor. A spiral staircase leads to a loft with stunning hardwood floors and a balcony the length of the house that gives you a panoramic view of the waterway.

The modern, well-lit kitchen features granite countertops and all the appliances and cookware you could possibly need. To add some exotic ingredients to your meals, step outside and pick some mangos, bananas or limes from the garden.

The house comes with two separate master suites with ensuite bathrooms featuring granite fixtures, French windows, walk-in showers with rain shower heads for additional comfort. Other bedrooms offer sliding door access to the lanai.

The house gives you three different cooling devices – multi-zone computerized air conditioning for precise temperature control anywhere, ceiling fans and night winds off the water. It offers more amenities than we could possibly list but here are some highlights: A state-of-the-art movie theatre. Granite topped mini bars on every floor. Five flat screen TV’s. It also gives you everything you need for the beach, including umbrella, beach chairs and a cooler.

Even doing the laundry feels somehow exotic with a washer and dryer set beside a window overlooking thick green banana plants.

And you’re just a short walk from the upscale stores and eclectic mix of restaurants in the Esplanade.

This truly is the ultimate vacation house.

We experience a great vacation at Marco Island. The rental home was fantastic and we all enjoyed the pool, movie room, and fishing on the dock behind the rental home. The rental house roof top has a sitting and relaxing area that gives an awesome view of the neighborhood, and at night the island looks beautiful from the room top. Everything was great and worth every penny. Thanks for a wonderful stay and vacation!

Very beautiful home. Loved the pool and location. Some maintenance issues with air and general maintenance that was frustrating. Loved the multiple bedrooms and baths. A refresh of the linens, towels etc.. would bring this property from good to exceptional!

This house was amazing. There was 10 of us and we still had a ton of space. The rooftop viewing was amazing for sunsets or escaping from the kids. Would recommend this beautiful home to anyone.
Not to mention the rental office makes us feel like family every time we visit. They are wonderful!

Our rental property was amazing and although we had chosen it from photographs we had seen, it surpassed our expectations. Aside from myself and my husband, our daughter,son in law, granddaughters and my brother, sister in law and Nephew all stayed in the property and there was ample room for everyone to have their own space should they wish to do so. The service received from Andrew from the initial enquiry to the check out was first class and I would certainly look to use the Rental agency again. The heated pool and hot tub were great and the children spent many hours in the pool playing on the floats that were available at the property. The property was in a good location and was within walking distance of several shops restaurants and bars, CJs on the Bay and Mangos were popular choices for us both of which we could walk to. A little bit further afield we enjoyed excellent food at the Capri Fish House on the Isles of Capri and is well worth a visit. Would highly recommended this property which we felt is particularly suitable for adults and older children.

While this home is very impressive, it seems to lack some things in terms of function. For instance, all beds are queen size while the bedrooms are large and certainly one could accommodate a king size bed. Pillows are terrible and I would suggest bringing your own if you can. Towels are thin and should be replaced. There are no hooks anywhere in the house for hanging clothes or wet towels. There is nowhere to hang wet beach towels outside. We bought a folding hanger to accommodate this need. The outdoor furniture is uncomfortable and needs cushions.
The outdoor space is beautiful, however, and provides plenty of options for sunbathing. The wide canal is lovely and affords a view of boating activity, and birding. Great location to access food and shopping. The folks at the property management company are terrific. This is a family owned business and I would highly recommend them for any of your vacation rental needs.

My family and I stayed at this home for the month of January. It was our second time to Marco island. The location of the house is perfect, the home is beautiful. Fantastic waterveiws, the pool and lanai were also right on the water adding to the view. The home is huge, great set up ( minus no where to put groceries away in cabinets)

Downside--- the furniture is dated and near falling apart. The bar stools were all loose and wiggly, the beds were extremely squeaky and uncomfortable, the pillows awful! Everytime I got into bed I woke up my infant from the bed squeaking so much. It was also really hard and definitly needs replacing. The cookware was dirty,the towels and face cloths few and gross. The washer and dryer destroyed most of our clothes turning them blue and full of lint. Also the house needs a serious deep clean. We had to purchase our own new cook utensils and towels and spent a good amount of time cleaning.

This is a rental income so I understand however the price paid to stay there, it should be spotless and have nice clean comfortable furniture and linens.

The rental company was great, if we had a problem they fixed it immediately.
Pool lights were still broken so we didn't get to night swim.

Great stay- definitly recommend it!

Beautiful house great location. Canal was of little use since boat dock does not have a ladder or a lift for putting kayaks or paddle boards in water; this should be remedied for future rentals. Fantastic location - Walking distance to Winn Dixie, Publix, many restaurants and Smokehouse Bay attractions. Would rent again, especially if dock upgraded.

Overall our stay at 949 Joy was great! Beautiful home and loved the location. Amenities were close and it was a short drive to the beach. We rented a boat and it was nice to be able to dock it in the canal behind the house. There was also ample space for my whole family in the house. Our grandkids performed for us a few times in the theater room which was cute.
The only drawbacks were no lights in the pool at night. For some reason they would come on for a couple seconds and then shut off. The dishwasher didn't work so we had to wash dishes by hand when we cooked. The cookware was not that good either.
2 slice toaster and well used pots and pans. Also the bedding and towel situation needs to be updated. The owner needs to invest in some of these to upgrade such a beautiful home.
Michael was quick to respond to our few issues.
Having said this, we would definitely stay in the house again if it is available on our next trip.

949 was a fabulous house in a great location close to everything. Over all condition of the property was very impressive considering recent hurricane Irma. Space in the house was awesome with all of the areas for privacy. Our only complaint was the house did not look like it had been cleaned, floors and bathrooms were a little dirty. Our guests who stayed in downstairs bedroom with twins beds said the mattresses were bad and pillows should be replaced ( those are not that big of a deal ). Overall great house and great place to vacation.

The location and the view was paradise.

The house is beautiful and the layout and space was perfect.
Our only, complaint was the quality of the interior furnishings of the house.
The beds, (mattresses) linens, towels and the kitchen utensils were not up to the standard of this lovely home.
We have stayed in many homes and our expectations were disappointed.
I would recommend this home if the interior belongings were improved.

Home was beautiful. More expense could be spent on mattresses and sheets, pillows and bedding. Offer good air-mattress over terribly uncomfortable hide a bed in upstairs living room area. Home was beautiful, and enjoyed the stay in spite of the neighbor on the side by the outdoor kitchen, who called the MI Police within 24 hours of our arrival, complaining of noise. Police arrived and stated they didn't hear noise which would be within the ordinance in place on the island. Neighbor rudely called over the hedge on Thursday of our stay, asking us to "keep it down". We were quietly using the pool.. Very little talking, no music or other noise. We are a group of 5 women who travel yearly, ages 47-67. We will not rent this home again, and it was beautiful, with the pool, channel behind the home, balcony walk outs, etc.

We visit Marco for 2 weeks every year and would eventually love to purchase a home on the island! This is one of the best homes we have rented to date! There were 8 of us in our party and we had so much space we could have had more! The house is large with a great lay out! The lanai is huge, pool and hot tub great! The view from the lanai, the 2nd floor balconies and the roof top was amazing! We had a few dolphins visit the canal. The kids enjoyed fishing off the dock. The outdoor furniture could definitely use some upgrading, most of the chairs were rusted as was the table. We would have definitely made more use of the 2nd floor and roof top balconies had there been more furniture to sit and enjoy it. The beds were comfortable. The pull out was broken so we did take the mattress and one person in the party put it on the floor in the "movie room". They did order a new insert for the pull out which was delivered during our stay and they did offer to fix it but we were comfortable with the way things were. The living room could also use more furniture in it. We could not all sit and watch tv at the same time. There were some stains on the pillows in the living room and on the carpet in the movie room and there were a ton of popcorn and crumbs under the recliners in the movie room other than that the house was very clean. Some of the lights in the house did not work like the one above the kitchen island however we made due without it as there is plenty of lighting. The house could also use more towels for showers. Some of them are so small you need to use more than one to dry off after showering. The grill was great we used it a few times during the stay. We will definitely be returning to the island and although we normally try to rent different houses each time we would definitely rent this one again in the future!
Andrew was great to work with also!

My Fianc (now Wife) and I rented this house for her family when we were married on Marco Island in April 2017. This spacious and beautifully decorated home was everything that we hoped for. Everyone was extremely comfortable and the pool made for some great afternoons in the sunshine. I couldn't recommend this home more for a large family looking to stay on Marco Island.

A great house for a multi-family vacation!

Two families, 9 people (4 adults, 5 children), absolutely great space, clean, awesome location and all the amenities that one would need. And a great value as well (there were a handful of families from our school that also rented in Marco and we're so glad we chose 949 S. Joy). We had a couple issues that the management company took care of within 30 minutes each (fire alarm battery needed to be replaced and too much swimming made the pool cloudy). As for location - hard to beat. Convenient to all the great restaurants, marinas and the grocery stores. I know there were some reviews that mentioned lack of dining space, but that wasn't a problem at all. Between the island, two outdoor tables and the indoor dining room, we had up to 15 people eating dinner without issue one night. What they don't mention is that the glass doors slide completely out of the way so you have a HUGE space to entertain and hang out. We're definitely coming back!

We had a great week at this fantastic property. The home is beautiful and in one of the best locations on the island, central to everything. Walk to the Esplanade, grocery store, and restaurants. Quiet dead end street with very little traffic. The pool gets sun all day long and is perfect for adults getting a tan while the kids play in the pool. The master bedroom/bathroom is monstrous and is an oasis. The kids loved the comfortable recliners in the media room while relaxing before bed.

The next door neighbor is a little uptight so watch you noise level. There were also a few minor repairs that were needed, but those were taken care of quickly. Other than that, the stay was perfect.

Andrew at Marco Vacation Properties provides the utmost in customer service and helps to ensure your stay is the best possible.

Perfect day mily vacation!

The Joy house was beautiful and relaxing. We had 2 couple with 2 kids each and there was plenty of space for adults and kids alike. Our favorite part of the house had to be the living room opening completely onto the pool/outdoor area. There's no pool fence so you do have to keep an eye on little ones.
Our only suggestion would be to upgrade the bed linens and kitchen knives.The quality of the beds was a bit disappointing given the "luxury" of the rest of the house. And the knives literally would not cut anything. We cooked every night so this was a bit of a challenge. We would definitely return, especially if those 2 small things are fixed.

Overall our stay was great! There were 9 of us sharing this house and the house was plenty big for all of us. We never felt like we were on top of each other. The house is beautiful and we had plenty of towels and dishes and furniture. We did not have a coffee pot, not sure why. Also the cooler in the garage had a broken handle and was very hard to carry. Most of the beach chairs were broken and there were only 7 of them. The pool was well heated and the hot tub was awesome! The neighbors are very quick to call the police if they hear any noise!! Watch out for this! The police came to the house 5 times and we were never given a ticket. The officers that came were very understanding and said it was probably a neighbor that does not like the rental properties and that they could not hear us while standing out front or out back. You should be OK if you move inside after 10 pm. But keep in mind that the whole house is tile and it echoes badly! If any windows are open while you are inside after 10 pm the police will get called:-( The location of the property is great! Close to grocery stores and gas stations, shopping and restaurants and bars.

The house was simply fantastic. Spacious, beautiful terrace with pool and jacuzzi. The only disadvantage was the night at 10pm. We celebrated the 50th birthday of my husband and at 22: 15h, the officer was already standing on the terrace, so we had to continue inside.
The housekeeping just perfect !! The wifi did not work and after a short call it was promptly repaired. Great house, perfect care! We will definitely come back

VERY NICE SPACIOUS NEWER HOME IN MARCO ISLAND. AS DESCRIBED, GREAT LOCATION. THE ONLY NEGATIVES ARE (AS STATED NUMEROUS TIMES BEFORE)THERE ARE HARDLY ANY POTS AND PANS IN THIS HOME. WE HAD A FAMILY OF 10, AND IT WAS NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE TO COOK ANY MEALS WITH THE ITEMS IN KITCHEN. SEATING AT DINING AREA AND OUTSIDE ARE CHEAP AND NOT LARGE ENOUGH FOR LARGE FAMILIES. THESE AREAS SHOULD BE ADRESSED, AS THE HAVE BEEN MENTIONED IN SEVERAL REVIEWS. OTHER THAN THAT, WAS A GREAT NEARLY NEW MODERN HOME THAT WILL MAKE ANY VACATION IN MARCO A GREAT ONE.

Manager's Response

A new set of pots and pans has been added to the property!

Nice home overall. Very open and large in size. It had a great pool. Furnishings are very basic in quality for home of this size. Can be challanging for families with small children.

We were absolutely delighted with this home. My husband and I took our son and 5 of his friends for a high school graduation celebration trip. We loved every inch of the space. The boys were able to swim, watch movies in the theater room, practice their culinary skills on the indoor and outdoor kitchens all while my husband and I were able to enjoy the space too. We were never underfoot as there was so much room. The first day we realized the blender was broke and within a day and a 1/2 the owners shipped a new one. Just in time for us to enjoy our traditional Marco Pina Coladas. Loved the home...top notch!!

The property matched everything in the photos and description provided by MV's website. Two minor criticisms - The dishwasher was not working 100% (no problem for us two)and the lanai fans were not very cooling as one could not increase the speed. Overall, a wonderful 9 nights.

The house was beautiful!! It was the perfect size for 8 people, giving enough space for everyone. The pool and hot tub were beautiful. The only downfall that we had was one of the bedrooms had no pillows other than decorative ones. We also felt that maybe there could have been a few more towels provided. ( not beach towels but shower) The location was ok. We had to drive to get to the beach, which we used the public access closest to the Marriot. Not a huge deal but wish the beach was a little closer. I would recommend this house but if you are wanting to be closer to the beach as in walking distance, that isn't the case.

Beautiful home great location.

Home is beautiful. We were there Jan 16-23-16. Upon arrival we had no internet or cable tv for the first afternoon and next day. We had 6 guests and found that the there was not enough pillows blankets and towels for 6 let alone 10. The untensils,pots and pans were old and few. The oven toaster was gross and toaster was cheap. Seating area at dining was far from comfortable and only sat 6. And couches were uncomfortable and only sat 4. On Thursday we had a power outage in home and had to reset main breaker ourselves. There was no hairdryer. Outside bathroom door is very hard to open, a guest got stuck inside. Home alarm system went off and we had to be talked thru resetting it. Master bedroom blinds were off rollers and couldn't be opened or closed. Refrigerator vegetable drawer fell off and the dryer never worked due to the fact the hose was major kinked by whoever set it up. Lucky I had a visitor who was a plumber and helped remedy that. Also had a handicapped quest, only to find that the home elevator was for owner use only. Called Michael on sat morning and was rudely told "so you telling me now after checkout" and "so what are you looking for?" Not happy with his response. We took care of each problem ourselves instead of bothering him. Yes it did take time from our vacation. end of story.

Manager's Response

As the guest stated, this property is beautiful! However, as most guests and individuals understand, issues do arise, which can be both unpredictable and beyond one's control internet and cable interruptions by the service provider). With respect to guest requests or items needing repair or replacement, we recognize that items will either fail and need to be repaired/replaced or that additional items may be needed by some guests, and our rental agreement specifically addressed this. All guests who either experience issues needing attention or requesting additional items during their stay are instructed to promptly notify their assigned rental agent by multiple options (email, telephone, text, etc.). Experience has shown that guests who notify the hospitality provider after their stay about issues experienced during the stay, especially when clearly instructed upon arrival, are often seeking compensation designed to "discount" their booking charges. Nevertheless, the property is beautiful and should not be overlooked!

This spacious home was perfect for an extended family vacation. The pool and hot tub were hits with the family, and we used the grill almost daily. There was plenty of room for friends to spend time and socialize. The kitchen was modern and laundry facilities very useful. The home's layout was spectacular with vaulted ceilings, a third level tanning pad with spiral staircase, and an incredible master bedroom and bathroom. Location was superb - on the water and 2 blocks from Marco Island's main drag. We would recommend this property to anyone and will most likely rent it again.

We were more than pleased with this home. I couldn't believe how incredibly gorgeous it was and all of it spacious rooms and amenities. This home more than satisfied any of our needs. In fact, we only made two visits to the beach because the pool area and backyard provided all of our enjoyment! We will definitely rent this home again and will recommend it to family and friends.

This was such a great vacation spot. We come to Marco every year and we decided on this house because it is BRAND NEW - and believe me, you can tell. It's state of the art, spacious and close to everything! There were a few things that weren't completed, obviously because it's new, like the speaker system, Netflix, etc... Conveniences not necessities. Also, the furniture selections seemed really small for the space, like there wasn't enough seating for what the house can accommodate, i.e. master bedroom has a queen sized bed? Weird, but being in real estate, my assumption is that they wanted to get people in there as soon as possible... Which I don't blame them for. All in all, it was awesome. We want to go back!

This is a gorgeous property with an excellent location, the pictures do not do it justice! The home is spacious and the floor plan is ideal. The lanai has sliding glass doors that open completely to the family room to allow for a unique and spacious area. The pull out sofa in the theater room was ideal for my boys who retreated there each night. Fishing poles were also a bonus and provided hours of entertainment right in our backyard. The observation deck was cool and peaceful in the evenings.
There were a few small issues that I would recommend be addressed. The pool furniture is very basic and I would have enjoyed an outside and inside table that could fit the same number of guests allowed in the rental. The inside table seats 6 and there are 2 very cheap outside tables that each accommodate 4. The pots and pans were minimal, worn and need replacing. The first floor master mattress, although brand new, was very soft and sank in the middle quite drastically.
The other issue we had was the next door neighbor called both the owner and the rental agent because our 3 children were swimming until 11pm the first evening. While we were aware of the noise policy, we did not realize this included night swimming. The rental agency was very understanding and professional but did warn us she would call the police if it happened again. Not sure if this is common for Marco island or just an unlucky neighbor but something to consider if you like to be out on the lanai past 10pm.
This home had some minor issues that we definitely would overlook due to the stunning property itself. We would definitely rent again and recommend to others. The rental agency was fabulous as well.

We had a wonderful week at Marco. The house was beautiful and big enough for our family of four. The pool and the spa were great.
The furnishings were enough for us but maybe not for a bigger party.
Had a great contact with Marco Island Vacation Properties regarding the booking.

Time away with family was perfect. The location of the home was perfect. We rode bikes Mackle Park, to eat, to the beach, to Rose Marina, etc... The home was clean. All tile/wood floors. Mango tree/banana tree/lime tree just outside the door. Pool and hot tub were used everyday. Felt like more than a home away from home. More like our own private resort. The only thing lacking was cookware. We had to buy a couple of things to allow for full meals to be made. But, this was no big deal. So, an upgrade to the kitchen cookware would be the only thought of improvement. We stayed 2 weeks, and no one was ready to leave. That says a lot for Marco and the home.

New cookware has been added!

We were lucky to be one of the first to stay in this beautifully decorated house. We could not have wished for anything more.
