Imagine life on a tranquil and charming island, surrounded by water and all of the desired lifestyle amenities. Marco Island, a world-renowned resort destination and the largest in the historic chain of the Ten Thousand Islands, is located just south of Naples in the Gulf of Mexico. Marco Island, or "Marco" as it is referred to by the locals, is only 4 miles by 6 miles in size, and is surrounded by powdery sand beaches, endless mangroves, and smaller islands. Catch a snook or redfish in the morning and then boat to a cozy waterside café for a tropical sunset dinner. Virtually every kind of residential lifestyle can be found here, from ideal condominium vacation homes to the most impressive waterfront mansions. Plentiful professional services, restaurants, shops, galleries and boutiques comprise the island's commercial activity, and the challenging Island Country Club, a private, 18-hole golf and country club, was the home of the late golf legend Gene Sarazen in his later years.
