An Oasis in Paradise
Let’s start from the outside and make our way inside. It’s no surprise that Marco Island homeowners relish in the outdoor lifestyle. With the calming, gentle breezes off the water to the colorful hues of bright orange, purple and red that make up a true Southwest Florida sunset, there’s no better place to enjoy this than your outdoor living area. This space is a focal point in many Marco Island homes and can be accentuated by the following:
Luxury pool and spa
Water features and fire pits
Outdoor seating areas
Private boat docks
Outdoor kitchen areas
Live the ultimate Marco Island lifestyle from the comfort of your backyard! Entertain guests, relax and unwind and cast off into the water effortlessly. Make this area of your home dedicated to preserving the incredible Island vibes that emanate from this slice of paradise.
A Space for Guests
Living on Marco Island often means more entertaining. When you live in one of the most enchanting areas of the country, it seems as though every family member, friend and acquaintance wants to stop and stay at your home for a few days. We don’t blame them! This is why a guest suite is an important feature to include in your Marco Island home. Having your guests in a separate area of the home not only helps them have the privacy they need to relax, it helps you carry on with your daily life as well. You won’t have to worry about waking up your guests if you have an early tee time when they have their own area of the home. And they won’t have to worry about keeping you awake if they chose to indulge in a glass of wine or two and catch up.
An open floorplan is a popular feature in homes across the country, but it’s especially popular on the Island. More and more homes are incorporating open floorplans with an abundance of windows to take advantage of the views, no matter where you are in the home. Open floorplans are also beneficial if you’re looking to entertain guests. You’re able to prepare food and drinks in the kitchen, while not missing out on what’s happening in the living area. An added bonus is opening up the walls of sliders to enhance the space, making it an indoor/outdoor tropical oasis.
Your Marco Island Home
If you’re looking to design and build the ultimate Marco Island home, adding in these features will help you create a look that matches the essence of the Island. Bring the outdoors in seamlessly, while entertaining guests. Take advantage of your views and enjoy the island lifestyle with ease. Anything is possible in your Marco Island home.
