"Really enjoyed the stay, wonderful view of the bay and the pool was great. The biggest hit was the kayaks and being able to fish all day and night. Our daughters used the kayaks to set out the crab traps supplied and our sons used them to carry the fishing line out to the deeper part of the water. Everyone wants to go home and get kayaks now. Have an elderly mother we take care of and she enjoyed sitting on the back covered porch and just seeing the sights and enjoying the weather. It is close to other attractions yet quiet and peaceful at the home. Our dog just loved this place as well."

"We were instantly at ease upon entering this very clean, nicely decorated and up to date property. We were able to settle in in record time and it was pure relaxation for the rest of the week.
Our two teenagers only came inside to eat, shower & sleep. They spent their days exploring the area on our boat and the wave runner we rented for the owners, fishing and swimming or just hanging out on the dock and sandy beach area. My mother came along. She enjoyed the comfort of the air conditioning inside and the ceiling fan on the screened porch, while still being able to watch the kids outside thanks to the beautiful level lot with just a short walk to the water. We only ate out once. I was able to easily prepare all other meals in the spacious, fully equipped kitchen and we loved eating on the porch. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were surprisingly spacious. I was so excited to find the fan in the master bedroom closet because I had forgotten mine! The owners are friendly as can be, were super easy to work with and responded quickly to the few questions we had. My only regret is that we didn't find this place years ago when the kids were little so we could have created more memories! We will definitely do our best to return."

"This is THE place to stay!!
My husband, our six kids, & I stayed at this charming home for four nights in April 2015. There was plenty of room with lots of indoor and outdoor things to do.
The kids played in the tree house, swings, play equipment, basketball, & tether ball. We all enjoyed fishing, crabing, kayaking, hammocks, and porch swings. We enjoyed roasting hot dogs over the camp fire & using the grill to grill hamburgers and steaks. We even saw the Dolphins every day, throughout the day!
This place has everything we needed, and, if we didn't see something we needed, Mr. Gene got it for us.
Mr Gene even came over & played with the kids, took them for rides on the golf cart, & offered boat rides. Mr Gene was SO hospitable and we enjoyed visiting with him.
This was a wonderful stay with lots of laughter and fun. We had such a great time that we will be back!!
Thank you for the memories. We are looking forward to returning to make more!!"

"This is our third February visit to Mark's Ark over the past four years! The layout of the home, the gourmet kitchen, the many bedrooms off the wrap-around porch and now the restoration of the guest house make this a perfect getaway spot!! The home is fully equipped, immaculate, and the owner, Priscilla, has become a great friend...so easy to work with. We shall return!!"
