About Marlene Church

My name is Marlene Church and I am originally from Germany.

I derive great joy to help travelers, facilitate with their vacation needs.

Marlene Church purchased this house in 1999

Why Marlene Church chose Marco Island

Marco Island is a beautiful island surrounded by the ocean. In winter you spend all day long outside enjoying the white sandy beaches, which are only five minutes away or go for a bicycle ride exploring the island.The landscape everywhere is very tropical and lush, very pleasing to the eye.

What makes this house unique

The house is at the north side of the island, away from the big main traffic area.

You can walk to smaller restaurants and a Starbucks coffee house is not too far away.

Fantastic family fun!

  • 5 of 5

We were met by Marlene at arrival. She showed us around the house. It is beautiful. The house met our needs for a family wedding on the island. The extras,bikes and kayaks, were much enjoyed. The view from upstairs was much appreciated each morning. Thank you for opening up your house to us. We will be back...

Great Location, Perfect View, Plenty of Room, Peaceful Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I first cannot say enough good things about this property and the Manager, Marlene. She was on top of everything, very responsive, and truly cared about making our stay a fantastic one. We had extended family with us for this vacation. There were 5 couples and two kids and we never felt cramped. Every bedroom having their own bathroom was ideal. The bedrooms were set up where we all felt like we had great privacy. The pool and patio are amazing. We kayaked and my husband and sons had such fun fishing off the dock. We watched dolphins jump from the ocean while sitting at the pool having cocktails. How pretty and relaxing! The location of the house is close to Publix grocery store, the beach shops, Walgreens, and Starbucks. It was very handy to drive 3 minutes and have everything you need at your finger tips. The house was well stocked and had basically all necessities. The hair dryers, curling irons, and clothes iron ironing board, soap, shampoo are all nice touches in all of the bedrooms. The house is not overly large but very functional and well laid out. Very nice to entertain in due to the open floor plan. Each room has its on thermostat which is nice in a large group that you are able to get your room the temp that you prefer. The neighbors were all friendly as could be and many times offered to help if we needed anything. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Hemingway house. We would recommend it for sure and cannot wait to book a trip to go back soon. This may be on our yearly rotation now. Marlene was the perfect host. If I had to come up with something negative, it would be very hard. But one of the guest bedrooms was very bright in the morning but that even wasn’t so bad. My family is very particular and it exceeded are expectations. The place looks nicer in person than the pictures. It was a great vacation and hoping to make it back very soon! If you are ever selling the house, please call us first. :) Thanks again for everything! Perfect Marco trip. 🌴?☀️🍹?

The perfect set up for our large family

  • 5 of 5

The Hemingway House was perfect for our large extended family. Each family had their own spacious room and bathroom. We loved the large living/kitchen area. It was perfect for cooking all while watching the kids swim. The large slider doors really allowed for that vacation feel. The location of the home was perfect for grocery trips, farmers market, restaurants, beach- everything felt just around the corner. We really enjoyed our week and would highly recommend!!

What a great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We spent ten days over the Wintr Holidays...three generations in the house at once, and it worked well. It is at the north end of the island, pretty well away from Marco”s bustle. The house is wonderful and is all set up for. One to have a fine vacation. Fish off the dock, row over the river in the kayaks...great kitchen to enterain family.

Marlene is very easy and a joy to work with should you have concerns. All in all, we highly recommend it and have booked the same week next year.

Great house for girls trip!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful girls trip to Marco! Marlene was the ideal host from the very beginning. I was a very nervous planner since I was planning for 8 forty something women, and Marlene talked me through all of my worries from the get go. The house was the perfect size for our group. It had everything we needed and is in a great location. We are hoping to come back someday as a group!
