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.

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!

Nice house, quiet cul-de-sac

  • 5 of 5

The house is very nicely finished with newer amenities. Spotless and very well maintained, the owner and the local helpful contact (Bill) are very thoughtful in providing a very nice stay.

Gorgeous house - great Marco location

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at this property more than once, and enjoyed it every time. It's a very quiet, convenient location with easy water access as well. The house is very well kept, has a nice pool and hot tub, and the screened in lanai makes the house seem twice as big as it is. Looking forward to another visit!

Beautiful location! Great pool area!!!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this Marco home! Great pool area - and loved that it was screened in. The kitchen was decked out, which made it easy to make most of our meals at home. Hosts were super friendly and place was spotless. Definitely recommending it to my friends at home.

Best Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time in Marco Island at this house! It was right on the canal, which allowed us to see some great sunsets, fish from the dock, and have access to the water. The house is in a great location and really close to the beach, a few blocks from a grocery store, and near some great restaurants.

The pool and hot tub were amazing and a great way to spend the day (or night)! Both are heated, which is sometimes hard to find. The house itself was very nice, with a lot of bedrooms. We were able to fit our whole family in there very comfortably. The kitchen was perfect for us too. They had everything you needed to make meals (which we did a lot) and plenty of space to hang out.

We really enjoyed staying here and plan to again, next time we are down in Marco!

Perfect House In an Awesome Location!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an incredible time with our family at this gorgeous home. And the pool/hot tub makes it hard to ever leave! The kitchen has absolutely everything you need, beds are very comfortable, the entire place is spotless and you really couldn't ask for more. When we wanted to go to the beach, it was a quick and easy drive. We'll definitely be back!

Wonderful home with everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

Our family completely enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home. The house is set up wonderfully for a full family and is very professionally decorated. Everything we needed was available. Our family especially loved the pool and hot tub as we would go to the beach (5 min away) and then come home and play volleyball in the pool, grill some supper and then watch movies. We hope to stay again next year!
