Marvelous Vacation Home
I cant say enough great things about this home. Everything was amazing! We had all amenities one could ask for. Home was walking distance to the beach, is in a quiet, safe community. In a great location to everything around the area. We greatly enjoyed the backyard with its beautiful pool and outdoor sitting areas. The golf cart was definitely a plus and came in handy throughout our stay. Van was simply amazing from the time i booked to the email she sent thanking us for staying with Marigot Place after we got back home. I hope we have the chance to continue to stay in Marigot Place in the years to come.

All the comforts of home while on vacation
Great Location within walking distance or short golf cart ride to the beach. Van is wonderful host and has thought of all details and amenities for a comfortable stay. The home is immaculate and as pictured. The pool is a nice addition my family enjoyed in the evenings. Our family dog travels with us and fenced in yard was ideal. We would definitely stay at Marigot Place again in the future.

Great vacation home
We really enjoyed our stay at Marigot Place. The home was very clean and spacious. Van was a wonderful host. The house was stocked with everything we needed for cooking. And, had all kinds of info on fun places to go and places to eat. The golf cart was very nice and convenient for getting around. We enjoyed the back yard, pool and quiet neighborhood. One of the nicest places we've ever stayed in.

Perfect spot and very helpful owners
This is a great place for the whole family. Well maintained, perfectly located for easy beach access without paying "on the beach" prices. Nice yard, clean, well stocked with everything you'll need. We had an unusual rental situation and the owner worked with us and was incredibly understanding and flexible. When the opportunity arises again, Marigot Place will be the choice!

It was great having you as guests at Marigot Place.
Clean, well-stocked kitchen, short walk to the beach
Mr. Larsen provides an excellent home for vacationers! The home was very clean and the open floor plan in the main area was perfect. The patio was very relaxing and being able to let our furry friends outside in the fenced back yard was enjoyable. Bedroom accommodations were great and we loved that there were queen beds in the three bedrooms for our adult children and their wives. So many vacation homes have one or two spare rooms with queen beds, but beyond that they are twins or fulls. The kitchen is really well-stocked and that was a nice bonus as well. Loved having the golf cart for trips to the beach as well as various short excursions. I feel like we can be fairly picky, especially about cleanliness, and we were pleased with our stay. Mr. Larsen has done an excellent job with his home!

Thanks for the nice review. We enjoyed having you as our guests.
Comfy home with great space for large family
Family of 10 stayed here very comfortably. The kids loved playing in the yard. The bbq grill was a great plus aswell. The home is just big enough where you wont feel like you’re on top of one another. The walk to the beach was a little bit of a hike with little ones but doable. You can’t drive there because there is no place to park the car or golf cart. The property manager was extremely responsive and even came to bring us a extra set of keys when we accidentally locked ourselves out. The home is equipped with everything you need from bath towels to beach towels. Overall we had a great time and would absolutely book this home again.
