City of Marco House Rental Photos and Description

Hemingway House of Marco Island, short term rental

From the moment you enter the home it feels like relaxation.

Enjoy the lovely view, have a nice drink on the upstairs balcony or take a swim in the pool.

The sunrise over the water is particularly captivating. That`s when you have a good chance to see the dolphins come by and greet you.

The house is so comfortable, bedrooms with a king size beds, closets, TVs, attached bathrooms, over sized balcony upstairs with a swing couch overseeing Bimini Bay.

Upstairs there is hardwood flooring and the downstairs has tile flooring.

Attractive ceiling fans as well as comfortable lighting.

Very comfortable relaxing atmosphere, Key West style home with wraparound porches and exquisite interior.

The house is in a quiet, residential neighborhood.It is not suitable for having loud parties on the premise, therefore people who want to enjoy a wonderful quiet vacation are welcome.

About Marlene Church

My name is Marlene Church and I am originally from Germany.

I derive great joy to help travelers, facilitate with their vacation needs.

Marlene Church purchased this house in 1999

Why Marlene Church chose Marco Island

Marco Island is a beautiful island surrounded by the ocean. In winter you spend all day long outside enjoying the white sandy beaches, which are only five minutes away or go for a bicycle ride exploring the island.The landscape everywhere is very tropical and lush, very pleasing to the eye.

What makes this house unique

The house is at the north side of the island, away from the big main traffic area.

You can walk to smaller restaurants and a Starbucks coffee house is not too far away.

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

The Hemingway House was an excellent stay for our vacation. We had a large party, and the house was perfect. Having a fully equipped kitchen was a plus. The pool was a bonus after a day at the beach. Marlene was very kind and hospitable. The location was nice, and peaceful. I would recommend this house for any stay on Marco Island.

Perfect Island Home for wedding weekend

  • 5 of 5

Above and beyond all expectations were met with the Hemingway House. Our families so nicely fit into the five bedrooms and to think we all had a bathroom attached. My husband and I were lucky enough to have the master bedroom on the 2nd floor with its amazing view from the bathroom shower of the water looking across the waterway. The room also had access to the upstairs deck overlooking the pool and the circular metal staircase outdoor down to the pool. Everything was provided that we needed. Such great memories were made enjoying the pool, especially with our 4 yr old grandson. The kitchen appliances were so up-to-date and even with a wine fridge! The weekend passed so quickly with all the wedding activities, but we always felt at home when returning to Hemingway House to relax and enjoy being with family. Thank you so much for sharing your home. From one vacation home owner to another, this was one stay we learned the best to offer guests.

Fabulous House!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I with our families were at Marco Island for a wedding. The house could not have been more perfect! You won't want to leave to go to the beach or sightsee because the house with its own view is so relaxing. A bathroom for every bedroom, two downstairs and three upstairs. Everyone was very comfortable in their rooms. The kitchen is unbelievable and well equipped, even though we did no cooking except for the outdoor grill. The common areas are so large, you will never be in anyone's way. To just step outside to the pool is delightful, we loved using it at night. (Thanks, Marlene, for the beach towels in every room) There is a rowboat and bikes to use, we were just too busy with wedding events. The grocery store is not far, so easy to stock up on groceries if you are going to cook. My sister and I just kept smiling at each other being so happy at our decision to rent Hemmingway House! P.S. We should have stayed at least one more day.......

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this home for a destination wedding in Marco Island. We could not have imagined a better choice for our accommodations. The home was perfect for a large family. Marlene was wonderful and made us feel right at home. Everything was immaculate and very comfortable. Would definitely recommend for a vacation. It might seem pricey but if you compare it to the hotels in the area you get so much more for your money.

Marlene and the house was awesome . Everything as explained in the AD and by her oname phone and email. We had a smallot family reunion , my sister unfortunately in wheelchair due to MS. Place/house was fine for her - she could get around during all over first floor and around pool /around house without too much trouble - all this discussed candidly with Marlene prior renting! !
