The house is a Florida style, open floor plan retreat. It consists of 2,200 square feet under the main roof, and another approximate 1,100 square feet under a completely screened lanai area which faces the water. A heated pool is in the rear, with very large decks surrounding it. There is yet another deck below the pool and near the water, for either sunning or fishing.

Marco Island homes are all beautiful, but a very large ingredientto a great home is how it sits with respect to the sun. In other words, does the sun remain on your front porch all day, or does it actually reach your pool and deck areas? The Tigertail House rates 10 out of 10 with all Marco realtors. At 7:00 a.m. the sun is on the left-side of the pool, at noon it sits about the center, and the spectacular sunset will be on the right side of the pool!


There is a full sized garage in which you will find four bicycles for touring Marco, as well as fishing rods and fishing supplies. There are lots of maps, great information on places to visit, as well as menus from our favorite restaurants ranging from gourmet to super casual and very reasonable. The array of great take-out spots, which are2-3 minutes away, is enormous.

By the way, Marco is known as "upscale," yet in general the whole island is super casual. Not even our most exclusive restaurants require a sport coat or tie!
