    A fantastic place to stay for a couple of families, we went with another family and everyone raves about the great weekend we had at Marlin Maison! Plenty to do, nice walk to town from the property. The bunk room was fantastic for the kids - they absolutely loved it. The main house is gorgeous - well laid out, spacious, warm (we were there in winter). All in all a great, relaxing winter getaway which I'm sure would be just as great in summer.

  • Wonderful stay at Marlin Maison and Kingimoon

    Wonderful stay at Marlin Maison and Kingimoon. Perfect for a pre wedding stay with my family. Amazing views and place had everything we needed as well as being so conveniently located. Thanks!

    This is a really special place to stay in Russell, and added a whole new dimension to our latest stay in our favourite town.

  • Location was an very easy walk to town and beach

    Location was an very easy walk to town and beach. Other rentals are higher on the hills and make for a long walk but this bach is high enough to have a very good harbor and town view without a strenuous walk. We particularly liked the kayaks; had a lovely row in glass smooth water along the rugged coast just outside the Bach. The wifi worked perfectly. This place is a 10 for everything that we cared about. If we go back to Russell, we will stay here for sure, . .no need to look elsewhere.

    Despite the great location and view, MarlinMaison was dank, uncomfortable and didn't feel clean. We found slimy food residue on dishes and litter, beer lids + broken bottle on the deck. It was advertised as a 4 bedrooms but was only 3. The TV and DVD didn't work. The drawers/cupboards were too cluttered and musty to use. We ran out of toilet paper and there was insufficient linen - no flannels, only 1 dishcloth + 1 hand towel, The master bed sheets had several small rips. Disappointing.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Marlin has 4 bedrooms, 2 adults in master bedroom & one 13yr in queen size room & 2 children sharing the twin room & the 4th room under the house, your family didn’t need that room which normally for larger groups. New TV was bought beginning of 2018. The problem is that it has been raining in Russell for the last 3 week. We supply basket of toilet paper when this run out the client buys what they need. Spare towels/linen in cupboard. (Limited character length)
