8 Affordable HomeAway & Vrbo Vacation Rentals On Marco Island, Florida  - Updated 2021

When it comes to visiting the USA’s state of Florida, travelers are spoilt for choice: there are just so many options! From its ubiquitous beaches to the theme parks of Orlando – even when it comes to island getaways, Florida falls in no way short.

Among these islands lies Marco Island, a barrier island just off the coast of mainland Florida. When compared to Key West, for example, Marco Island brings more convenience to explorers of the state due to its proximity to the mainland. However, it does have its downsides: as of early 2015, it was found to be Florida’s most expensive beach destination. Not only amenities but accommodations too can burn a hole in your pocket; a double room in one of the island’s quality hotels can cost up to 300 USD per night!

But worry not – here are 8 affordable HomeAway and Vrbo vacation rentals on Marco Island for the best holiday without breaking the bank.

1. Honeymoon home: beachfront studio apartment with beautiful views (from 63 USD)

Stretched over Marco Island’s west coast is its most prominent highlight: a long, sandy beach, looking out over the Gulf of Mexico. With its turquoise waters and stunning tropical sunsets, you just can’t leave Marco Island without going on a trip to the beach!

If you’re seeking cheap yet comfortable lodging for your honeymoon getaway, look no further: curl up with your loved one in this soothing studio apartment. A romantic ambience fills this apartment, thanks to warm lighting and gentle shades of brown. With a flat-screen HD television and cable in this living room, you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to entertainment. Cuddle with your loved one on the couch. Or cosy up on the Murphy bed (pull-down bed), a lovely space that is perfectly snug for two. Freshen up or wind down in this compact bathroom, pristine white with an aquatic vibe. Need a breath of fresh air? Relax on the apartment’s balcony with an open view of the beach.

2. Fun for all: condo for five near Tigertail Beach

If you’re travelling in a group – be it friends or family – and wish to get the most from a stay in Marco Island, stay in this spectacular seaside condo! Despite its private location, it’s central to many island activities, including the beach, the nature walk north, and the social scenes and restaurants located down south. Expect a greeting of tropical hues as you step into the living room. Lounge on the settees as you converse with your friends or plan for the day’s adventure! The cool boat-shaped coffee table is sure to set the holiday mood. Earthy hues enclose the master bedroom, complete with wood furnishings and a king-sized bed that can fit three. Similar shades await in the second bedroom, albeit with a more jungle-like vibe. Take a look at the leafy sheets on this queen-sized bed! If you’re turning in early, don’t doze off just yet! Don’t miss a wink of the area’s gorgeous sunsets with the balcony’s panoramic views.

3. For the family: condo for six in the south end (from 76 USD)

Away from the hustle and bustle of main commercial areas, the south end of Marco Island is home to shell beaches and quiet residences. No matter where you are, expect the shoreline to be just a stone’s throw away. Families bringing their kids can enjoy a safer surrounding too, as shallower waters and thinner crowds allow for better supervision of young ones.

Find a family lodging in this serene condo for six, located just ten minutes from the beach. Within this unit, furnishings of rattan and royal blue create an air of tropical tranquility. Relax in a similar atmosphere on the lanai. With a view of the complex’s pool, this space is great for people-watching! Imagine waking up to the light of the Sunshine State streaming in through your windows, beckoning you outdoors and welcoming you to the day ahead! As for your little ones, tuck them in within this lovely bedroom, pretty in pink and full of flowers.

4. Fit for fish: riverside residence by Factory Bay (from USD 97)

Aside from the beach, another activity worth exploring on Marco Island is fishing. Lots of large, edible game such as mackerel, groupers, and snappers can be caught in the island’s water bodies. Don’t believe us? Take a look at the video below:

Stay in this condo, located right next door to Rose Marina, and you’ll find many fishing charters for your angling adventures. Step into a space of sunny yet mellow interiors, furnished with a plush settee and television. With this selection of movies and a DVD player, your entertainment needs are more than met in this apartment. Along with all its regular appliances, this kitchen is also equipped with a mini whiteboard – a great way to keep track of your trip or assign any family chores! At the end of the day, you might even want to prepare a scrumptious seafood dinner with the game you caught! Don’t sully the interiors with your post-fishing activities! Attend to your catch on the balcony instead, where tiled floors and ample space allow for a mess to be made and cleaned. Alternatively, you could come out here for some fresh air, or a break from the indoors. Sail off to slumber in the condo’s sole bedroom, where you’ll find space for four on a queen-sized bed and a double bed. The property also has a pull-out sofa that can sleep one.
