Private Homes house description
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.

Great family vacation home!
Great family vacation home!
My family vacationed at this Marco Island home during our February trip to visit with my parents and celebrate Grandpa's 80th Birthday. Since my parents live on Marco we are familiar with the area and have rented homes several times before... but none were as nice as this property. The home is ideally located in a quite spot with no traffic but still very close to the market, restaurants and shops. We even made the short trip over to Goodland (a nearby fishing village) to enjoy a shelling trip from the Coon Key Marina and some fresh seafood at the waterfront restaurants. Upon arrival at the home we were greeted by Bill who took the time to show us around, explained how to work the appliances, remotes and electronics and answered all of our questions. The fresh fruit basket and flowers that he and his wife left for us were an especially nice touch. The home was immaculate and spacious (especially the master suite) and our group of 6, including my family of 4 and two additional adults, were quite comfortable with room to spare. It was stocked with all the tableware, cookware, utensils and supplies we needed. We were surprised that everything seemed to be in brand new condition. We particularly appreciated the modern kitchen and the coffee grinder we used to brew up some fresh coffee each morning which we then enjoyed out by the pool. The kids loved the heated pool (complete with pool toys and floats) and fishing from the docks with the 4 fishing poles that were in the garage and ready to go when we arrived. We also got some good use from the beach chairs, towels, umbrella, coolers and beach cart while we visited South Beach and Tigertail Beach during the week. The lanai was perfect for outdoor grilling, family dining and just relaxing. There was even a stereo system with a docking station so we could listen to some tunes while connected to the wireless internet outside. When it came time for Grandpa's Birthday party we were able to accommodate the whole group for a birthday celebration that created some great memories for us all. This home really had everything we wanted in a great location. The owners Phil and Janice were responsive and made booking easy. I would definitely recommend this home to friends and family and I look forward to staying again the next time my family visits Marco Island.

A Wonderful Reunion
A Wonderful Reunion
Seven friends and I, gathered for a reuinion, recently rented this spectacular home. It was a perfect place for our get-together -- roomy, immaculately clean, and beautifully furnished. We especially enjoyed meals and social time in the spacious lanai, around the pool and hot tub. The location is a short distance from a gorgeous beach, restaurants along a beautiful waterfront, and access to boating. If you're looking for a place to relax in comfort, this is it!

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
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!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Southwest facing waterfront property with direct access to canal leading to Gulf of Mexico. Covered lanai with outdoor seating and dining areas and heated screened-in pool and spa. Pocket doors open off the main living areas to lanai. With a private, tranquil setting and open plan layout it's ideal for entertaining and comfortably sleeps 9 (in beds). Beautifully appointed gourmet kitchen with seating for 10. Cordless phone and HDTVs in family room and 3 bedrooms, surround sound indoors, outdoor pool stereo. Access to daytime recreation and nightlife.
