Marlene made us feel at home. We had a lovely peaceful and relaxing time at Hemingway and would recommend staying here.
Marco Island itself was a little too quite for us personally but can completely understand why people go there to get away from everything and the hussle and bustle.
The pool is wonderful and Marlene provided everything and more we could have asked for during our short stay. Also the Egret room was comfortable and well appointed.
We had a lovely stay at Hemmingway House. Marlene was a gracious hostess and the house itself spacious, comfortable and well appointed. It is well located for local amenities and we also spent many a happy hour in the pool. This was a great find and I can only recommend this rental to you. 5 star all the way.
Loved, loved, LOVED the location, house, and Marlene. She provided maps of the Island and really helped with advising fun things to do. House was right near the river and VERY clean. I would go back again in a heart beat!
The house was absolutely wonderful right by the river, where my son fished at night and actually caught several fishes. We also borrowed kayaks from Marlene and went out just before the sunset. And to our surprise we saw a dolphin pass us right by.
The pool made it very easy for my kids to pass time during the day and it was always clean and nice.
The room with the two beds were perfect for me and my two kids. We slept like logs.
The house was quiet & calm and very nice & clean.
We stayed for 5 nights and we were all very happy with everything.
Marlene is the perfect host and she went out of her way to help us and to make us comfortable.
Thank you for everything Marlene
Marlene is a Super Host! The house is beautiful and beautifully maintained. I felt extremely safe in this upscale neighborhood when I took an evening walk. It was great to cool off in her magnificent pool with water views. While enjoying the water I even saw a Manatee come right up to her sea wall - what a great experience! I was welcomed and Marlene was very helpful in suggesting local spots for dinner. I had a terrific stay and would highly recommend Marlene's Hemingway House to anyone who wants a great Marco Island experience. I hope to stay again and stay longer!!
The time in marlenes house was the best we have ever had in a airbnb.
She welcome us very frindly with coffee and tea and gave us a lot of useful tips.
When we had a request, she replied immediately.
She is a wonderful host, so friendly, helpful and she did everthing that we felt confortable. We had intresting talks and laughed a lot together. The house, the outside area including pool and our spacios room were very clean. The view was gorgeous.
We will defenitly come back.
We can highly recommend her.
Thank you for everthing marlene!

Great house in Marco Island ...
We arrived at the house in Marco Island and Marlene was waiting for us. She gave us a tour of the house and made sure we would be very comfortable with everything. She is very detail-oriented person!
The house is huge with and amazing pool. Unfortunately the hot tub jets were not working. The kitchen has everything you need, all kind of spices and fully equipped. She even got us a welcoming bottle of wine!
She told us the House also runs as a B&B so each room has its own fridge and bathroom with queen/king size beds and many towels. Beach towels are available, chairs and umbrellas.
With that being said I wish the house was closer to the beach. To get there you need to drive or bike and it's not like it is right there. Beach has a public parking for $8.00 per car.
We went to the beach the first day and it was very disappointed .... The beach is far, full of sea shells and to get there you either need to cross thru the lagoon or walk 30-40 minutes to go around. The beach is remote and has no food or drinks to buy so you need to bring all the supplies you need to spend the day. It does have a cafe on the other side but who wants to cross back and forth the stink lagoon to get something !?! Oh, let's not forget you need to watch the tide because when it gets higher the stink water gets above your waist.
In conclusion, the house is great but after hear so many things about Marco Island I was very very disappointed about it. I recommend the house if your desire is to be comfortable without a nice beach.
Dear Candida and Giselle,
Thank for your review. I always appreciate my guests.
As far as Marco Island`s beaches are concerned, there is another area where you have a perfect access to the beach without lots of walking. It is our South Beach.
My very Best regards,
About the Host, Marlene
Hi, my name is Marlene and I have been a host with (website hidden) since the beginning of July 2011. I am originally from Aachen,Germany. Since my children are grown and have left their nest, I entertain a larger home by the water in a resort area in Southwest Florida. It is a great pleasure for me, to help guests facilitate a wonderful stay while on Marco Island. In my spare time I enjoy a great game of tennis or study French.
