City of Marco House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bdrm/3 Bath, SW Facing, Heated Pool/spa, Open Plan, Direct Access

Chasing The Sun is an airy and immaculate luxury 4-bedroom, 3-bath waterfront Marco Island getaway home ideal for families and executives.

This newly updated, fully furnished, tastefully decorated and freshly landscaped 2,540 sq. Ft. 1-story home is nestled in a tranquil cul-de-sac. It's the perfect place to relax and enjoy florida’s nearly 365 days of sun!

Its spacious, open floor plan boasts 12-ft. Ceilings and a bright and sunny southwest-facing living area. Pocket doors invite the outdoors in, opening to a fully covered lanai lounge area with gas grill, heated screened-in pool and 6-person spa. For your safety, all doors leading to lanai, pool & spa chime when opened.

The master bedroom suite features canal views and a king-sized poster bed, sitting area, oversize walk-in closet and french doors leading to the lanai and pool. Its large en suite private bathroom has his- and her-vanities, soaking tub and separate walk-in shower.

The second bedroom has a queen-sized bed with a lovely bay window with seating area. The third bedroom has a double and a twin bed, and the fourth bedroom doubles as a den with a comfortable queen-size pull-out sofa bed and closet.

Two bathrooms (not including the master) provide additional convenience: one has a stand-up shower and a door that leads directly to the lanai and pool/spa area, while the other has a combination tub and shower.

When you're ready to step outside, take a dip in the heated pool, unwind in the hot tub, or cast a line with provided fishing gear right off the private dock outfitted with two boat lifts (6,000 lb. And 12,000 lb.) on a direct access canal that leads to the nearby gulf of mexico.

The fully-equipped and beautifully appointed eat-in gourmet kitchen with granite countertops is a great place to gather at mealtimes. It has ample seating for 6 at the table and 4 at the center island, overlooking the pool and canal. An upscale folding table is available, if you need to seat a few more people.

Wash the sand off your clothes in the fully enclosed laundry room with brand-new washer/dryer and utility sink.

Whether working or entertaining, you’ll find free wifi throughout, plus flat screen hdtvs in the family room and all bedrooms. A universal remote controls the bluetooth-compatible bluray dvd-cd player, media package including digital cable with 300 tv and music channels. The home is also stocked with plenty of blurays and dvds for all ages.

Limitless outdoor recreation options include the 7-mile white sand beach just a short distance away. Take your pick from the many local waterside restaurants for lunch or dinner or take a 15-minute drive to downtown naples, where world-class shopping and dining await.

Why Janice chose Marco Island

Our family has traveled the world. We spent 20 years searching from Hawaii to South Africa for a waterfront vacation home and finally found the perfect location.

For a sunny getaway, the Gulf Coast and Marco Island have it all: year-round gorgeous weather plus great beaches, fishing, dining and shopping. With easy access by car, boat or plane, our home is spacious enough for a large family gathering, yet it's also an ideal place for an intimate getaway!

We live in Central Iowa, where the winters are long and bleak. Chasing The Sun is our haven, and we invite you to share this experience!

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at your home. What a great location for a family get together. The kids would have slept in the pool if we would have let them. Your home was better that advertised. We were impressed by the cleanliness and size of the home. We had 10 total with 4 children, ages 10-13. We have been to Marco before and would not hesitate to rent this home again in the future. Thanks again!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at your beautiful home on Marco Island. The house was perfect and included everything we needed to make us feel right at home. We all enjoyed the pool and hot tub and sitting outside in the screened in patio every evening. The fishing poles came in handy, the kids fished everyday. Everything about the vacation was fabulous. beach, para sailing, everglades tour, bike rentals and boat rentals. We will certainly be returning and we would defiantly stay at your property again. Thanks for helping us create great memories.

Outstanding Property

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (4 people total) stayed at this outstanding property during the 2nd week of June 2014 and we couldn't be happier with our stay.

We were greeted by Bill & his wife Carol immediately upon pulling up to the property and they walked us thru everything and answered all our questions.

The house and amentities itself were fabulous. It was extremely clean, well-kept and everything worked great. They even have fishing poles to fish off the dock and a great beach buggy with umbrella, chairs, boogy boards and all the other necessities for the beach.

It is located in a great, quiet location, and is just a few minutes drive from both Tigertail and South Marco beaches.

I highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a warm and relaxing location in a great, reasonably priced property.

Excellent Experience

The property was exactly as described. The pool was fantastic. There was plenty of space for larger gatherings and the neighborhood was very quiet. I would definitely recommend staying in the house.
