“Customer service personafied!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

Let me start this review by saying that we have stayed here on a few different occasions and always go home wanting to return. Diane, Terry and Michael are the best hosts I've ever encountered. They were very accommodating when making our reservation and made a point of asking if we had any special needs. They met us at our arrival time, made us feel extremely welcome and provided us with the answers to all our questions. Our room was a studio apartment that was very clean and decorated in a very appealing tropical décor. It was quiet, just yards from the beach with an awesome view and all the other guests were friendly and engaging, almost like an extended family. It was so relaxing I would recommend it to anybody looking for a peaceful, getaway from the fast paced tourist attractions that we too often end up at. Close to many fine restaurants, sports events, shows and great shopping it that's what you're looking for. It's the best of both worlds. Thanks Terry, Diane and Michael for a wonderful and memorable time.

Room Tip: Diane is more than happy to show you the different options that are available.

This was my second visit to Marine Villas, returning after three years. There's always a worry that a return trip may not match up to previous experiences and memory - but everything was as good as before. The apartments at Marine Villas are spotless - in fact I believe they've all been decorated recently. As others say, the welcome, atmosphere and complete facilities immediately make you feel at home, not as if you're using a room that's owned by someone else. In addition there's the quiet, relaxing surroundings. Thank you Diane and Michael for your professional hard work, friendly welcome and local information.

Thank you Diane and Michael for having such a nice time in your old Floridean Style condos. I love the view and how much you care about me feeling well at your place. I am looking forward to coming back in January next year!
It is always so relaxing returning in the evenings after a stressy day, enjoy a drink at the porch while looking at the sea, the palmtrees and the beach. This feels good!

Room Tip: better view in the upper appartments

My family and I, recently stayed at Marine Villas, on an extended September long weekend. We had a most wonderful time. The rooms are very clean. The service very friendly!! It was fantastic to be able to relax and BBQ, be so close to the beach. Yet, it was so peaceful because,you are at the quite end of the Broad walk. Diane, you have a talent for making people feel welcome and at home. Thank you to Diane,Terry, Mike and Lisa for the great stay!!
We hope to return sooner than later.

Diane thank you for everything!!

You, Mike, Terry and Lisa were a delight!!

I had a great time celebrating my Mum's birthday with my family!! The rooms were very clean and quite welcoming. It's was like a home away from home - even great neighbours :-)

I really appreciated knowing that if we needed anything additional, you all were very willing to accommodate, thank you.

I would highly recommend staying at Marine Villas, whether family, couples or even single.

Your new Canadian friends will most certainly come back!!

Very nice sheets and towels. Great kitchen in the room if you're staying for awhile. A bit of a hike looking for coffee. If you don't mind a fast jump in the car ( complimentary parking a very helpful plus) giorgio's restaurant has it all just a couple of minutes north. Dianne, the owner, a native Floridian is lovely and helpful. Bit of a walk for food but the choices are good. We ate well. Beach is quite nice!
