The house is on a 2 acre property with your own driveway and locked gate.It includes 2 kayaks ans 2 bikes.It is very nice when you just want to get away from it all. Pure relaxing. Also the house is very appropriate for family reunions since it takes up to 12 people.
Girls vacation turned out to be one of the best vacations we have ever had. The House Marlin was amazing. It was clean ,organized, and fully stocked with everything you need. There was a grocery store 5 minutes away . The pool was a great addition to the house for those that want to get away from the sun for a bit. The ocean was beautiful. We spent a lot of time in the ocean and in the pool.
We went exploring every day. We went to Cape Santa Maria for a day..that is a must see!! We also went to the very South End of the Island to Gordon Beach. Another must see. We spent many days stopping in at Max Conch Shack..a place to meet people from all over the world. The food was delicious. If you are looking for a place to stay on Long Island House Marlin is the place!
Just want to add some pertinent information to my review. The location of the property is a short walk to the Hillside Market where youcan purchase most anything you need for day to day living. It is a half hour drive to Max' Conch Shack, a must for a dining experience like no other and you can try anything on the menu for $12.95, including hog fish parmesan, my favorite, conch salad, jerk chicken plus a few more, including two sides. Another place to dine is Rowdy Boy's Bar and Grill in Clarencetown which is a half hour past Max' Conch Shack. There are numerous roadside burger type stands, most of which serve deep fried conch which I highly recommend, if just for the island experience. Also, be very careful when driving to watch for goats which are liable to pop out in front of you at any time and there are usually a flock, one by one!
My wife, brother and I spent a relaxing week in one half of the house along with my wife's brother, wife and their son and his wife, so it was a mini family reunion for us. The house is situated on a piece of property that is lanscaped perfectly for an island get away. The vista of the sea is a sparkling, magnificent azure color ranging from brilliant blue to a deep blue hue as it get deeper. We did some fishing for bone fish along with seeing small sharks, sting rays, barracudas and various other creatures. The daily temperature was ideal, ranging from the low 80's in the afternoon down to mid 70's at night. There was a gentle breeze most days and bugs were never an issue. The house itself was perfect with a large kitchen, fully furnished and lkving room/dining area adjacent. I am wheel chair bound and the hallway was spacious, allowing me access to all of the house, even though the bedroom was a bit of a squeese. Health permitting, we will return next year because this was the most relaxing and enjoyable vacation I have spent in my life. The pace on the island is is like stepping back in time 100 years.
We had a great stay on Long Island - it had some of the most beautiful and quiet beaches we have ever seen. We had 2 families in the 2 units - the house was spacious, clean and comfortable. We had some issues with the water on the first day but Joelli was quick to come fix things. It was a bummer to have the ice and water machine not working in one house though. The view from the back deck is spectacular. The home is in a great central location and it was very easy to get around the island - my tip would be to rent a 4X4 if you really want to be able to explore. We only rented cars and couldn't get down to the Columbus Monument. Santa Maria and Salt Pond beaches were stunning. We hired Urshula to come and prepare 3 dinners during our stay - she was fantastic and I would definitely recommend her. Her food was delicious and it was incredibly relaxing to have her prepare meals while we played with the kids. We also did a boat trip with Bahamas Discovery Quest - Charles and his wife Teresa are incredibly lovely and we learned a lot about the island and had a lot of fun. Book the lunch with your trip - Charles takes you to a deserted island and makes lunch over the fire, it's a great experience.
We recently spent 9 days at House Marlin and we could not have been happier with our stay. Joellie has a truly epic home available for an unforgettable vacation. Centrally located on the island this home was close to all island activities and had everything we needed for a comfortable, relaxing stay, including large king beds in air conditioned bedrooms, full kitchen, private pool, private beach, on site laundry and much more. The ocean side pool and veranda were breathtaking as were the star filled night skies. The island is pristine and secluded and defiantly unlike anything you've experienced. Joellie also was very helpful in setting up activities, car rental and helping with any questions and concerns. We cannot say enough good things about our stay at House Marlin other than we had to leave at the end.
Superbe séjour à Marlin House.
Cela commence dans la préparation ...Tout est simple: versement, location de la voiture,...Tout est parfaitement huilé. Joelli s'occupe de tout et réagit promptement s'il arrive quelque désagrément ( serrure bloquée,...).
La maison est remarquablement équipée. Tout y est et tout ce qu'il y a est de qualité.
La climatisation permet de se retrancher à l'intérieur après avoir usé et abusé des bains dans une eau chaude.
Prévoir le nécessaire basique de plongée.
Nous avons tous les jours utilisé les 2 kayaks. Cela nous a permis de longer la baie ( Thompson Bay ) et de découvrir une magnifique crique sablonneuse ( longer la côte sur la droite en regardant la mer et dépasser le promontoire visible de la maison ). Cette balade est un peu sportive : compter environ 4kms à la rame.
En outre la population locale est très sympa.
Si vous appréciez le calme, le soleil, les eaux "carte postale" le tout avec une habitation très confortable ( frigo américain très utilisé! ) vous ne serez certes pas déçu.
Ce séjour est à conseiller pour les familles avec jeunes enfants mais aussi pour tous ceux qui veulent bouger ( visites, balades "physiques", plongée ).
...We look forward to come back
The house is direct at your own beach where you can swim, snorkel or use the kayaks.If the weather is bad you can enjoy the roofed pool. The next grocery store and gasstation is only 5 min away with the car. You also will find restaurants and bars close by.
It is recommended to rent a car or Jeep on the island because the island is 90 miles long and it is worth it to travel at least once to the south end of Long Island and also to the north end. The house is almost located in the middle of Long Island.
