We are locals in the community and have made this wonderful apartment unit available to people in search of a place to return home for family visits, a stay for local wedding, weekend relaxation or exploration getaway.

Comfy place in comfy little town

  • 4 of 5

Great little place in Marine. Perfectly located near the center of the small town and just a few minutes from Stillwater. The apartment was clean and tidy and very cozy. The owners even left a nice bottle of wine. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it.

Lovely place to stay with great owners!!

  • 5 of 5

David and Robin went above and beyond to help me and my husband out during our stay. Especially since I "lost my way" and ended up almost stranded not being able to get ahold of my husband. Would definitely recommend them to friends and family and stay there again. I appreciate everything they did for us while we were there!!! They treated us like family. Great people!!

Great Spot!

Perfect! Has all you need and then some, within the quarters, and around little town. Stillwater 10 minutes away...superb nature trails for exercise close by. Nicely done/well kept, won't be disappointed!

The perfect pad for a Marine stay

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I've been to Marine this year and needed a place to stay close to town and friends. The location is perfect (just cross the street to the Brookside, etc.), the owner is great and the place is clean and comfortable (and cute, too). There were lots of nice, thoughtful touches that made us feel welcome. It's also easy to get to Stillwater. On my last trip, we had friends staying in #3 and #5, which made it ideal for all being together. #3 was the coolest, but #1 worked better for us to have two beds in a studio style. You can't go wrong here. I'm sure we'll stay here again. Highly recommended!
