About Alan Rice

We live year round outside of Boston and regularly visit Marco Island every 4-5 weeks. During the interim time periods, we open our home for weekly rentals. We are confident you will enjoy our Little Piece of Paradise as much as we do.

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!

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is AMAZING!!! We returned back home today after staying a week at Rufina and we cannot say enough about this place!! Alan is fantastic to deal with and this home exceeded all expectations that we had. Most rentals we have stayed at for vacations supply the bare necessities in terms of pots and pans, etc. This place had it all!!

The decorations in the home are amazing, so much so that we moved some items out of the reach of our toddler daughter the first day we were there to make sure nothing was broken. However this home made for a great family vacation with our young daughter, close 2 block walk to the beach with a public access point to the beach right across the main road. If you weren't feeling the beach....there was always the beautiful pool to jump in!

I cannot recommend this place enough. Book it today!! Thanks Alan for the great family vacation!

Expectations exceeded!

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends stayed while attending a ten day conference at the Marriott, only a short 7 minute walk away. How fantastic it was to come back to our private pool on breaks. The amenities were appreciated and awesome. Alan was fabulous to deal with. We all highly recommend this listing and discussed returning again with family in the future. The value is exceptional. Thank you so much for your hospitality Alan!

Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the house for two weeks in June & could not have been more pleased! We rent vacation houses several times a year & this house was one of the best. What made this house stand out as exceptional were the beautiful furnishings & cleanliness of the property, the short distance to the beach, & all of the amenities such as the pool, bikes & lounge chairs (brand new chairs arrived during our stay, by the way). Alan is easy to talk to & all questions and concerns were addressed promptly. I HIGHLY recommend this rental property!!
