"We have been renting homes on Marco Island for the last five years. This was our favorite house so far. Working with Chuck was great. The house was exactly as advertised and the layout was perfect for two families. We enjoyed the pool and kayaks. The short walk to the beach and restaurants were great. We enjoyed dinner on the beach at Stilts and Quinn's and watching the sunset. Also enjoyed our annual dinner at Snook Inn which is always entertaining with the live music. We can't wait to return to Marco next year!"

"We stayed at this house for two weeks during September 2015 and all and all we were very pleased. Were two adults and sometimes 2 and sometimes 3 teenagers, and there was plenty of space for everyone. The house and surrounding area was very clean.
The pool area / Jacuzzi / patio area is fabulous, and the outdoor grill is top notch. The two essentials - wireless and central AC - were flawless. Another nice feature is that the stereo is wired for different zones in the house – kitchen, patio, living room, etc. - so bring a Y cable and you can enjoy your favorite sounds inside and out. The dock area is also very nice - we fished off the dock. and saw a dolphin swimming in the back bay!
The house and appliances are a bit aged and showing signs of normal wear and tear here and there, and the kitchen is not equipped for foodies - bring your own knives and favorite tools. On the other hand, and as another reviewer noted, there is plenty of quality plastic-ware which is very convenient for drinks and snacks in the patio, adjacent to the pool.
Communications with the owner were sometimes difficult before we arrived due to technical problems. All in all things worked out just fine. If I could rate this house a 4.5 stars I would. We were very pleased, would seriously consider renting this house again when in the Marco area, feel it was a great value for the amount we paid, and would recommend this house to others.

"My family and I stayed for four nights at Marlene's "Hemingway House." In all it was a great trip. Marco is a wonderful and relaxing place. We pretty much used Marlene's bikes wherever we went. The place was incredibly clean and there are great views of the water and the bay (from the master bedroom). It certainly was a charming little getaway and next time we need to step away from our hectic lives we'll be giving Marlene a call again!"

"This was our first time staying on Marco Island. When we started to plan our trip we knew it would be difficult because we had to stay mid week to mid week. The owners were fantastic to work with. The house is BEAUTIFUL and very spacious. My family loved the pool. I would recommend this home to anyone looking to stay on Marco Island.
Thank you !"
