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!

Beautiful House, Great Location, Perfect Week.

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this house for a week in late August and had a wonderful time. The house is absolutely beautiful and had everything that we needed, and then some. The house looks brand new inside and is beautifully decorated. The heated pool was perfect and we were in it with our kids every single day. We used the beach cart that was provided by the house to walk a very short walk (so short even our three year old could walk it without any complaints) to the beach almost every day. The beach was perfect with warm calm waters, great for soaking and playing in. We packed our lunch to the beach every day, but if you don't want to be bothered, there is a Marriott close by on the beach that you can go to with several restaurants for lunch. There was also a great park for kids nearby with fantastic playground equipment as well as a splash pad that our kids loved. The neighborhood was quiet and there were lots of restaurants to eat in close by and further out. Although the kitchen had everything we needed for some meals at the house as well.

The owner was very nice and very responsive in helping us to get connected to Wifi when we first arrived, but everything was in place so we really didn't need to contact him after that. I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a perfect house, in a perfect location, for a relaxing and fun vacation.

Fantastic family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time at Rufina on Marco Island. The house is clearly updated and decorated quite nicely. The kitchen was well stocked with pots/pans/utensils etc for us on the rare occasion we did not go out to eat.

The kids also loved the heated pool and the beach toys/umbrella etc.

Overall we had a great experience and would love to return in the future.

Perfect vacation rental.

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect rental property. The set up was tremendous. The house has everything you could desire and a pool area that will delight adults and kids alike. We spent hours out there. And with a 2 block walk to the beach we were able to trade off from the pool and beach everyday. We will be back to Marco for sure and won't even look at staying anywhere else but here. Thanks Alan. What a treat.

AMAZING !!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough about our wonderful stay. The house is beautiful and has everything that you could ever need. It is spotless and very spacious. The pool was great during the day and in the evening with plenty of places to sit outside for meals. The location is perfect and close to everything. Alan is so great to work with and very responsive if you need assistance. We cannot wait to return. Thank you again for everything.
