About Mark Hanoka

I am a 37 year old professional with a career in the hospitality industry. I graduated with a hospitality degree from Cornell University. Ultimate comfort and guest satisfaction is most important to me and I have given my vacation homes a modern, fresh twist that is hard to get out in the Poconos.

Mark Hanoka purchased this house in 2012

Why Mark Hanoka chose Poconos

This property will offer an alternative to the mainstream vacation homes that you will find in the Poconos. My home home features modern amenities, an updated fresh and sleek look that you would find in fine hotels in an urban area. I have included flat screen TV's, modern furniture, great lighting and an overall great look.

This home is also centrally located in the Pocono mountains. It is located in a safe area in a private community. There are major attractions in close proximity to the community. Resort mountains include Camelback mtn(20 min), Jack Frost/Big Boulder(35 min) & Shawnee mtn(30 min). Other attractions are the Mount Airy Resort & Casino(10 min), the Crossings clothing outlet center(15 min), Pocono raceway(25 min) and the new Kalahari indoor water park(25 min). There are also good local restaurants & grocery stores just 10-15 min from the home.

The backyard is also a great place to relax with spectacular views of the lake. The entire backyard is private for you & your guests to use and includes a BBQ grill, lounge furniture, a private beach area with fire pit and dock with private boat.

Relaxing family time

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for a relaxing summer getaway with family. It wasn't stuffy or uncomfortable. It felt like a cozy hang out home. The backyard was wonderful to sit in and enjoy the beautiful view of the lake. We fished off the dock and from the row boat. We had campfires every night of our stay. We also bought our dogs which enjoyed running through the water. The whole visit was so relaxing. Thanks Mark, we loved the visit so much we are booking for next year too.

Lived the home away from home feel of this house!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this lake front house was great. The house was homey and has the lived in look and feel which made it very comfortable. There was 8 of us that enjoyed the house and the lake and it was roomy enough for all of us. We ate every meal outside on the spacious deck and enjoyed the lake view. Thanks so much Mark for the accommodations.

Not a "Luxury" Experience, Beware!

  • 2 of 5

My husband, young son and two dogs recently stayed at this rental. From the first step inside, I was shocked that the listing used the word "luxury" to describe the property. Everything was really dingy and incredibly dirty - like years of dirt built up. The baseboards where filthy, carpets stained, furniture worn, and the upstairs master bedroom was just atrocious. The bed had stains on it, as did all of the pillows. I ended up going out and buying new bedding (sheets and comforter) AND new pillows just for the stay. I was initially annoyed that we would need to supply all of our own bedding and towels for this stay, but after seeing what was there, I was so happy to be able to have my own stuff.

The community where this house is located is huge - 3900 houses. You never quite feel like you are secluded or relaxing at the lake. The houses are packed in very closely. That being said, the view of the lake from the kitchen and the backyard/lake access is pretty nice. We went out on the paddle boat, sat out on the porch and enjoyed the fire pit. Because of these features, I gave the rental 2 stars. Without this, it would be a 1 star.

However, because of the state of the bedroom, we ended up leaving a day early from the trip to get home to our own bed. I took a bunch of pictures of the state of the house because I thought I would be able to post them in the review, but it seems like it's not possible!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. I'm sorry that you felt that the condition of the bedroom was not sufficient for you and your family. This home is constantly rented and I do have a cleaning crew that keeps up with the cleaning on a regular basis. I also conduct a deep cleaning of the home every other month which includes shampooing of the carpets and upholstery, cleaning of the comforters and a thorough cleaning of the kitchen and bathrooms. Of course it should be expected that whenever you rent a home that normal wear and tear will be present in the home. There will be some scratches on the walls, the baseboards will also have scuff marks and small stains will appear on the carpet/rugs. This is not a new home but it is maintained as best as it could by myself and my property management team. One thing that I have learned over the last 10 years of renting out both my lakefront homes successfully is that you cannot please everyone 100%. I am thankful that a good majority of the tenants I rent to throughout the year do enjoy the home & I have many loyal/repeat guests. This is indicative of the many positive reviews that this home has received over the years. But I thank you for your opinion and will look into the issues that you described in your review.
