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,
Herrlich: Ein Zimmer mit außergewöhnlich hoher Aufenthaltsqualität!!!
Wir hatten das Zimmer "Sea Breeze" und waren super happy damit. Das Zimmer ist richtig groß, gemütlich und sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, hat ein komfortables Kingsize Bett und ein schönes, großes Badezimmer. Aircondition und Deckenventilator waren eine Pracht, individuell regulierbar und nicht zu hören - eine Wohltat.
Das Frühstück war reichhaltig und sehr, sehr lecker. Man kann dabei innen oder außen am Pool sitzen. Das ganze Haus macht einen wirklich sehr gepflegten Eindruck und verströmt eine angenehme Atmosphäre. Marlene ist eine tolle und unkomplizierte Gastgeberin. Unterhaltung und Kommunikation ganz in dem Umfang, wie es der Gast wünscht - sehr, sehr angenehm.
Marco Island bietet mit der Nähe zu den Everglades und zu Naples einen guten Standort für viele unterschiedliche Unternehmungen. Auf der Insel selbst gibt es alles, was man braucht: Strände, Supermarkt, Geschäfte und eine Vielzahl an Restaurants. Marlene's Bed & Breakfast liegt direkt an der Bimini Bay in einer schönen und sicheren Wohngegend. (Nur der Vollständigkeit halber, die Bilder und die Beschreibung sind 100% zutreffend.)
Von uns erhält Hemingway House die volle Punktzahl mit 5 Sternen und Marlene ein herzliches Dankeschön.
Marlene is just a wonderful host! She is very friendly and warm and we almost felt like coming to a friend's house. We stayed 2 nights and had a cozy room with a private bathroom. Our 2 boys (aged 5 and 2) just loved the pool! The house and the pool have a great view on the water. Marlene was very helpful with recommendations for restaurants and so on. We would definitely come back!
Annonce en accord avec la chambre. La chambre est très spacieuse avec des sanitaires privés. Très propre, une literie très confortable et un grand lit très appréciable.
L'hôte a été d'une très grande gentillesse et nous a très bien accueillis.
Quartier résidentiel très calme.
A savoir : Marlène met gratuitement à disposition des vélos, un plus pour découvrir Marco Island !
Petit déjeuner compris, on ne s'y attendait pas.
Prestation largement supérieure à un hôtel !!!
Great location and property all the rooms are well kept and clean with great views. Host Marlene is there every step of the way to may your stay a comfy and enjoyable occasion. We arrived by water and enjoyed it.
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.
