Guestbook comments from the owner

It is time to move on to New York as our last stop on this wonderful vacation, then we head back to Sweden. We have truly loved your house and it has become a wonderful place to relax, BBQ, and the children didn't want to leave the pool! Such a beautiful home that we leave with only happy memories. Thank you for trusting us to rent it and we hope we may come back one day. Marco Island and Rufina will be in a place close to our hearts, always!

"The" Beach House!!

"The" Beach House!!
  • 5 of 5
This truly is an amazing place! I have rented many, many places on VRBO and Homeaway and this was right at the top! The proximity to the beach was awesome and we woke up every morning and took beach strolls. The amenities are amazing and the beds were like sleeping on clouds. Out kids made use of the pool and the coffee maker was a great touch. It's close to many restaurants and shops and truly is a dream home. Since there's a conference every year nearby I hope to make use if this home I the future! The only drawbacks were...... NONE! You get what you pay for in spades! If you are looking for a house on Marco Island stop! You found it right here!

Lovely home, well appointed. Life of Ease!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second stay at Rufina in 8 months. The home interior and exterior are lovely, with well appointed decor and new appliances, fixtures and furnishings. We made ample use of bicycles provided in the garage to traverse MI everyday. Just about 5 min walk to "feet on sand" at the mid MI beach access. Inside -- attractive and eye-catching decorations, open floor-plan, new furnishings, several books to read, comfortable beds and linens -- a comfortable and relaxing environment. Outside -- inviting pool awaited with several exterior chairs, tables, lounges, and a over-sized umbrella. The outside was as inviting as the inside. If you are fortunate to stay in Rufina, you will certainly enjoy the "extras" not found in many rental homes: premium coffee maker, master shower AND tub, walk-in closets, high-tread count linens, soft down pillows, vaulted ceilings, marble counter tops -- just to name a few. Come to MI for the great weather, white-sand beach, delicious food. Stay at Rufina to relax in a lovely home near the beach with all the amenities you would expect from a top-class home. Thanks Alan and Anisia for a great respite! We plan to return.

Beautiful, luxurious home with all the amenities!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here with our two little ones (ages 3 and 6 months) and had an amazing time! This house is really clean, nicely decorated, and has all the amenities you need to make your stay feel like you're at home! We spent most of the 11 days we were there in the screened-in backyard -- in the pool or hanging out in the comfortably furnished lanai.

The kitchen...I was so impressed! After a trip to the grocery for food, it was wonderful to be able to cook at home much of the time. I loved making waffles some of the mornings, and even made use of the food processor to make some yummy chickpea blondie bars. With all of the healthy home-cooked meals made in this kitchen, I think it was the first vacation where I didn't gain any weight.;) The Keurig is nice, too. A useful tip to maximize your cup of coffee: use a K-cup and press the 8oz option, let it finish brewing, lift the handle (keep the used K-cup in) and then press the 4oz option. Then you'll have 12oz of coffee in the large coffee mugs provided, with using just one K-cup. :)

Overall, the house is just a dream! The bedrooms are comfortable and the bathrooms are beautiful. We also made good use of the TV/sitting area, the whole living room space is laid out nicely with plenty of room to lounge.

If you want to venture off to the beach, the owners have a beach cart with chairs and toys as well as a nice supply of beach towels to use. The beach is only a 1/4 mile away, fine white sand with lots of sea shells. Make sure to get out there on a clear evening to watch the sunset -- it's beautiful!

I have a suggestion for the owners to help with what may be a minor inconvenience to those without a car -- when we got to the house, there was no toilet paper or hand soap at all. There also weren't extra kitchen garbage bags, which we knew we would need more of since our stay was long. I would recommend having the cleaning service make sure that those items are stocked appropriately so that future guests don't have to worry about going to the store to pick up those items. But really, such a small blip in the grand scheme of things. If we are ever back in Marco Island, we will definitely stay here again! Thank you!

Paradise in Marco Island

  • 5 of 5
We found a little piece of paradise! This was the cleanest, best equipped house we ever rented in the US. We were free to use the beach cart, chairs and bikes. Beach access is only 5 min. walking distance. There was a BBQ grill we could use, too. Kitchen was equipped with everything you could imagine. Master bed and bathroom were a perfect dream. Complete house was decorated in the best of taste. We can highly recommend this property. Owner was very friendly.

Absolutely FABULOUS home!

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely FABULOUS home!
This beautifully decorated and clean home was PERFECT for our family ! We enjoyed absolutely every amenity, from the lanai covered pool,Our family had a great time, and would highly recommend renting this property. The owners are wonderful to deal with, and the property is in a great location. Our kids loved swimming in their pool, and the house was very clean and was well equipped (the Master Suite is amazing). The home is located about 2 blocks from Gorgeous Beach (about a 5-10 minute walk to the beach) That are always there to greet you as you make the short walk to the beach. There is a tidal basin you must walk across to reach the actual beach, but it wasn't too bad. About hip deep during regular tide (around chest deep at high tide). You can walk around, but plan on about 30 minute. If you walk thru the tidal basin, at sunset, don't miss the thousands of small crabs that line your path. They are amazing! Take your water shoes, as the beach is made up of crushed shells (hard on the bare feet)This home is beautiful and we will definitely return! Had a fabulous time and loved the proximity to the grocery store, beach, and other things Marco offers!
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR LETTING US STAY IN YOUR HOUSE !!!!!!!!:)))))))

Owner's Response: Just want to clarify that the "Tidal Basin" is located at Tigertail Beach, which is another wonderful area on Marco. The public access to the beach from our home is a two block walk....no tidal basin crossing necessary.
