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 Florida South Gulf Coast

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.

Great family vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

The house beautiful. We have a large family so we were able to stay together and be together. Our Mom who is 84 was very happy to have stayed here together. Kids and adults went kayaking and row boating since the house is right on the water. Pool was beautiful with the spa and got tons of use. We were able to eat together and bbq and just relax. We could not have had better weather! Marlene was very nice and if you had any questions she was very easy to get a hold of. Although everything is in the pamphlet on the kitchen counter.. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay! A good time was had by all! Thank you Marlene!

Wonderful week with great friends at this beautiful Hemingway House!

  • 5 of 5

We had a total of 5 couples staying at this extremely spacious home with a beautiful view in a quiet neighborhood. Marlene greeted us and "gave us the tour" when we arrived. She was very responsive to our questions prior to and during our stay. The house was in close proximity to the grocery store, restaurants, shops and a just short drive to the beach. We would recommend South Beach (as opposed to Tiger Tail beach) which is just a few minutes longer of a drive, but WELL worth it! Public parking is limited so it is best to arrive there early! The house was very clean and stocked with everything we needed for our stay including cookware, linens, laundry detergent, beach towels, beach chairs, etc. (We had 10 people in our group so a few more washcloths / bath towels were needed but we did laundry so we did not request any additional.)

We were very excited to find a place that had 5 King beds and 5 attached bathrooms so that each couple had their "own space". The only down side was that the one bedroom had a very cramped bathroom space (small European shower, tiny toilet area and not much space to move between the sink and shower) making it very difficult for a woman to do the "hair and makeup" task. The bedroom itself was spacious so it would be fine for a family that could maybe share another family members bathroom when needed, or even kids that didn't need much bathroom space. If you had a group of just 4 couples, the other four bedrooms with bathrooms were quite spacious.

I would definitely recommend this house for large families or a group of friends who want to have a beautiful, quiet place to stay that is close to the beach, but also have the luxury of using the onsite pool and hot tub for days/evenings when they prefer to stay close to home. We had a wonderful time there at Marco Island!!

Owner's Response: Dear Reviewer, Thank you for taking the time to write this long review. I am pleased to hear how much you enjoyed your stay. We are always interested to hear about any aspects, positive or negative for future guests to know how past guests viewed their expierence. The lack of extra towels I do not quite understand, we always leave extra towels in a drawer in every bedroom. The fifth bedroom has a smaller bathroom, but it makes plenty up for the most gorgeous view off the balcony onto the Bimini view and Marco River. Thank you for choosing The Hemingway of Marco Island. The management

You Are Not Just Renting A House (change name to Hemingway HOME?!?)

  • 5 of 5

We rented a home for a great week with family. Our 10-year old granddaughter had two parents, all four grandparents an aunt and a teenaged cousin for her entertainment. And what a great place to do it. Marco Island is a good change from our Ohio and Massachusetts winter. And we had much more than a house. It is a real home that we could wish we lived in. The granddaughter spent lots of time in the pool every day. She tried fishing from the dock. No luck but her dad caught a couple. There is everything you need and more in the kitchen, laundry, bathrooms. The most important thing was not feeling like nine people were being squeezed together. Everyone had nice beds and plenty of privacy. This is a perfect place for a large gathering like ours. Highly recommended. Florida + Home = Heaven?

Marlene Church is a superb host!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 5 fabulous nights in The Hemingway House! We went to Marco Island for shopping & fishing... caught some of the BEST groupers we've ever eaten! This house is in an ideal location with beautiful views, a heated pool and tons of space inside the house. We had TV's in all of the rooms -- great for New Year's football games! The kitchen was well equipped with serving platters, pots, baking pans & plenty of plates, glasses & flatware. All of the appliances were top of the line and Marlene made sure we had laundry detergent, bottled water and an assortment of spices and condiments. If you're looking for a relaxing vacation close to lavish hotels with wide beaches and a visit to the high-end stores of Naples, we highly recommend this house!

great vacation on Marco Island

  • 5 of 5

Four couples get together once a year to relax, play golf and enjoy each others company. This year we chose the Hemingway House on Marco and it was the perfect house and location for our annual vacation. The five bedrooms with private baths are large, comfortable and well appointed. The open floor plan living/dining/kitchen was perfect for our large group and when not golfing we enjoyed the pool, hot tub and outdoor living space (we had great weather the entire week!). We also used the kayaks but never got around to the rowboat or bicycles, just not enough time in the day.

Marlene was a great host and was readily available to answer any questions, including which remotes and switches turned the ceiling fans on/off.

we all agreed that we will keep the Hemingway House and Marco Island on our short list of places to visit again.

Perfect house to gather with multi-generational family for a week

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 6 adults and two kids visiting our extended family in Marco Island for Thanksgiving week. We knew from the pictures, description, and reviews that the house would easily accommodate everyone, but we were still surprised at how much everyone enjoyed the house. The kids lived in the pool and hot tub, adults loved the peaceful views, and grandmas were happy to have their own master bedroom retreats.

The kitchen was spacious and well appointed, easily accommodating multiple cooks and a giant turkey. We could not figure out how to work the coffee maker (so we bought one for $9 at Walgreens). Marlene was a terrific and very responsive (but unobtrusive) hostess - even stocking the kitchen with a roasting pan for our turkey and sending a pool technician to adjust the heat for the pool.

When we hosted a gathering of various aunts, uncles, and cousins, everyone was impressed with the house, which is perfect for entertaining. The property is very close to Starbucks, restaurants, and grocery store. The only suggestion we have is to stock a couple of newer beach chairs, as two were pretty rusty and already broken.

Thanks for helping us create wonderful family memories. We all want to return again next year!

Owner's Response: Dear Reviewer, Thank you so much for writing this extensive review.I appreciate all the great comments regarding your stay at the house. After a day of stay I always check back with the tenants to make sure everything is working properly. I checked the coffee maker after your departure and it was working well. Since it has a thermos carafe and not a glass carafe, you may have felt it was not doing its job but it does. We already replaced the beach chairs with new ones so the guests will have their full enjoyment on the beach. Looking forward having you back when time allows. My very best regards, Marlene
