About John or Lisa Nemcik

Hi, we're John and Lisa Nemcik, thanks for checking out our beautiful rental home! We currently live in the Orlando, FL area. I am originally from Cleveland, Ohio, and Lisa is from Westfield, New Jersey.

John or Lisa Nemcik purchased this house in 2012

Why John or Lisa Nemcik chose Marco Island

I purchased this property as a retirement home for myself and Lisa back in 2012, and have invested a considerable amount of work and finances to get the home up to a nice standard. After our first visit to Marco in 2011, we both fell in love with this part of the Island. It is convenient to everything, but tucked away in a well-maintained upscale, friendly, and quiet neighborhood. The neighboring homes are gorgeous, many with beautiful tropical landscaping.

What makes this house unique

We strive to make our home comfortable and classy, while still retaining the tropical aspects of Marco Island. There's much to do on the island, so take advantage of all of the area's amenities. For a serene getaway for 2, we have 2 kayaks available for your use out on the canal and adjacent waterways. We have also provided many other necessities for a day at the beach, such as an umbrella, beach chairs, and large wheeled card to carry everything you will need.

Awesome house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We are very pleased with the accommodations that John provided. The house is simply beautiful with a great location close to the beach.

The house was immaculately clean as was the pool. It was just a perfect week.

Thanks so much!

Don and Debbie

Beautiful Home!

  • 4 of 5

Absolutely gorgeous neighborhood & a wonderful home. John & Lisa outdid themselves with their vacation home. Large, spacious, living room with sliding doors leading to the pool area. Master bedroom to the left w. walk in closet + HUGE bathroom. The master also has access to the pool!! We were well equipped with towels & the kitchen was incredible! I had sooo much fun cooking! They supplied it all! Garage had canoes which my husband & a friend used to take a ride along the canal. Bikes were also provided! My hubby & I took a stroll around town & even got to see an owl! Washer & dryer worked just great! Having a pool in our home made the experience even greater & we got to see 3 dolphins from the canal!!! We had a great time! I would also recommend going to Tigertail couldn't get me out of the water even if you paid me! John & Lisa, we will definitely be back next year! My ONLY complaints: 1) Internet signal was terrible! It kept kicking us out 2) AC Broke on the last day 3) Dishwasher didn't work that great. The prongs in the bottom tray are slanted so the dishes aren't washed well. So if you don't mind washing by hand, you'll be fine.

Owner's Response: Well, we are glad you enjoyed your stay; however, it is disappointing to just hear of the internet and dishwasher issues in this review. We have not experienced any other complaints or issues regarding either of these in the past. It is possible that there was some temporary service problem with our internet provider; if this had been addressed during your stay, John or I would have contacted our provider to troubleshoot the problem. Both John and I have been to the house on 3 and 2 days, respectively, since your stay and did not experience any internet trouble. With regard to the dishwasher, again, we have not had any complaints about this in the past and are not sure what may have happened during your stay. The prongs on the bottom are slanted (as they are with the other 2 dishwashers we own) so plates rest on an angle for cleaning. After your stay, our cleaning service sent me pictures of a large stainless steel pot they removed from the dishwasher with (what looked like) residue of overcooked food in the bottom. I asked it be left out for John's inspection as he would be there within a few days. He was able to clean it; however, he also determined that it was overcooked (scorched or burned) food in the bottom. We did appreciate your letting us know about the AC issue on your last day. In hindsight, it was good that we allowed you to extend your stay beyond the normal check-out time that day so you were able to make us aware of the problem. We had the AC fixed the next business day (since it failed on a holiday, typical of any Florida AC unit) and the startup capacitor on the compressor was repaired promptly. Beyond being disappointed in reading your complaints in this review as opposed to allowing us the opportunity to make any possible corrections during your stay, it was even more discouraging to find, upon John's arrival, that you used our pool heater, without our permission, set it to 101 degrees, locked the controller, and never mentioned that to us. John arrived 4 days after you left and found the pool temperature was 101 degrees. This would have been something we could have addressed within minutes (if it was done in error) and eliminated potential equipment damage and added cost to our upcoming electric bill. Again, we are glad you enjoyed your stay, we just wish you would have given us the opportunity to make your stay more comfortable. Lisa

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful property. We enjoyed everything about it. It was perfect for our family (3 adults and 3 teenagers). The pool and the canal were the highlights for our family since we had visits from both dolphins and manatees. The kids enjoyed fishing off the dock. The house was also fantastic. The location was perfect; walking distance to beach, restaurants and shops. I saw on the VRBO page you are no longer renting this property which is too bad for us but great for you, I hope you enjoy your wonderful home.

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This house was awesome it accommodated three families quite nicely. We had 6 adults and 4 children between the ages of 9 months and 5 years of age. We did rent 3 children's beds from a local company and placed them in the spare computer room and that worked out well.

Some of the things we liked best were the heated pool, that was great since we probably would not have been able to use the pool because it is screened in and does not get a lot of sun. Water temp without heating it would have been too cold. This was a major asset and enabled us to use the pool every day.

There were two kayaks available for our use. Since the house is located on a canal we could paddle right out to the inlet to the ocean if we wanted to. I was able to do some fishing which was really great. There were also two bikes available for our use which was really nice to be able to peddle around Marco Island.

The beach we liked best was South Beach but parking was difficult. You had to get there early to get a spot. Really nice beach bar there called the Sunset grill. Also yoga on the beach every night at 6pm where you could watch spectacular sunsets!!!

One of the highlights of the trip was the burrowing Owl sightings. Virtually every vacant lot had an active owl burrow. One of them even had 5 babies which was really cool!!!!

The owner of the property was very accessible by phone and email and he was very helpful he supplied the name of the rental company for the beds and children's toys.

I would highly recommend this house for families it met our needs nicely.
