Great vacation home
"My wife and I had a very relaxing vacation.
This home is close to shopping, restaurants, the beach, adventure trips, and pretty much anything you would want to do.
My wife relaxed by the pool, while I took morning walks to the beach only a mile and a half away.
Bikes are available in the garage, for those who prefer biking to walking.
There are trips to the Everglades available, where the travel company will pick you up at the house.
I would recommend this trip to individuals, or families, as it is a unique experience.
The home was extremely clean, well furnished, and in a convenient location.
There are great restaurants, and sports bars, where you can eat by the bay, only a blocks away.
We had never been to Marco Island, and we found it to be just what we were looking for in a vacation.
I would recommend this house, and Marco Island, to those looking for a wonderful vacation destination."

"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 house was absolutely perfect (and clean!) for our stay on Marco Island. All-in-all, we had 8 adults and 2 children. The pool and spa were relaxing, clean and warm. The kitchen had everything we needed and the house was fully stocked with linens and towels. Dave quickly responded to all my questions prior to our stay, as well as checked in on us to make sure we had what we needed during our vacation. Our trip to Marco was for a wedding so we were very busy, but next trip is total R&R and we will definitely be back to this house!"

"Typically we do not post reviews but this home is well worth the time. We were looking for a property to rent on the island that would accommodate our need of accepting dogs as they are part of our family and it was a family vacation. We are so happy we found this property and Joan’s willingness to accommodate and understanding of our need. Turns out the home was much more than we expected and had numerous plus’. Home is conveniently located on the island on a quiet court. There was plenty of room in and out for us all. We enjoyed relaxing and soaking up the sun in the pool and on the large lanai. The ceiling fans on the lanai added air movement for us and the dogs so they could join and relax as well during the heat of August. Backing to the golf course helped keep with the quietness. It also gave us the ease for “family” walks on the golf course after hours. The kitchen is well laid out and accessible from the lania. The home is not only people friendly but dog friendly as well. Beds were very comfortable. A huge thank you to Joan for working with us on our needs and allowing us to rent their beautiful home. We hope the opportunity arises to visit Marco Island again and we will definitely be contacting Joan!"
