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.

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

Beautiful and Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

Spent a three day weekend at Hemingway House with four couples and the house worked perfectly for our needs. Each bedroom had a separate bathroom, the living area was well furnished and spacious, the kitchen was great, and the pool area (where we spent most of our time) was well landscaped while not obscuring the view of the water. Marlene was a great host and made sure we had everything we needed, including providing us with lots of options for dinner and Florida fun. Nothing but a good time.

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.
