                            This home was perfect for our large group of friends that get together each year. 14 of us made it this year! We had plenty of room to spread out and relax. Jo and Kari could not have been more responsive to our needs. Thanks gals! The view was incredible, I am missing it now. The rooms were large and the beds were comfy. The gals loved the pool, while us old fellas LOVED the very nice and large dock right on Vaca cut. It was the perfect spot to fish right off the dock, so we didn't even bother renting a boat. Marathon is a beautiful city with so much to do or not do (which we did a lot of). We did enjoy some of the local night life with live music available most every night. The food, the food, the food was great... missing that too. We usually pick a new place to meet each year, but we all agreed we will be returning to Marathon and to this house!

                            Owner response: Thank you for your kind words! I'm glad you loved the house! We hope to see you back soon!

                            This place is a gem! The listing and photos are not only accurate but humble. Nice, big bedrooms, lots of space for different activities, like a 'quiet' floor, a tv floor, a dining floor...beautiful dock out back, and a nice big kitchen. Beautifully maintained. It's like a mini-castle, and we had an amazing time there. The kitchen is well equipped to make meals, but it's also close to good eateries (Castaways, eg). Activities are close (Backwater Cowboy Outfitters for water sports), and the staff who manage the property were SO responsive and helpful with suggestions at any time for restaurants or activities. I don't think I can think of anything that I would want to change. Would definitely recommend for a big group (we had 10, could fit easily 11-12) and will definitely go back.

                            Recommended for: Girls getaway, adventure seekers, families with teenagers, sightseeing, families with young children.

                            Owner response: Your group was a joy to host and I am so glad you enjoyed yourself! We hope to see you again!

                            We recently returned from a wonderful week at Vaca Blue. The house was very large, excellent for a large group, with several floors offering everyone some space. The house was very clean, nicely appointed and the yard was is great condition. The parking is a bit of a challenge (getting in through the gates at an angle) but easily dealt with. Another review commented on the neighborhood, we didn't have any concerns with the area, it seemed very typical for the keys. The pool was nice, with a mix of sun and shade throughout the day. One minor challenge with the floor plan - there isn't a living room/family room on the main floor with the kitchen -- it would have been more convenient for our large family, but we made it work. Kari with Island Breeze Rentals was awesome to deal with. She stopped by to check on us and readily provided us with the extra items we needed. She made this week carefree and we even had our deposit back in less than a week!! Can't wait to head back down to the keys and will definitely use Kari and Island Breeze again!!

                            My family an I had a fantastic week in the Keys. We rented a boat, went snorkeling, fishing, ventured down to Key West and enjoyed all the Keys had to offer. This property is a nice renovation with basic amenities. There is a fence around the entire property and you will quickly realize why upon your arrival. The neighborhood is questionable at best. We enjoyed our week in the house without incident. Days after I arrived home I received a certified letter stating that my family had stolen the lawn furniture. We flew to Miami and dove in. First they accused us of taking two lawn chairs, then they had a recount a week later and accused us of taking one. I'm not sure what the rental agency though we did with the furniture or how we transported it back via commercial airlines. Maybe we checked it? We flew American, at $25 a pop I think not. After countless calls and emails I gave up. It is obvious this company has played the "screw the tourist" game many times. Unless you are a local and have time to go fight to get your deposit returned, don't stay here.

                            Owner response: Unfortunately, this review is unsupported by the facts. The home owner had just unpacked a brand new outdoor table and 6 matching chairs the same day as these renters checked into the home. When they checked out 2 of the brand new chairs were not at the property. At no time did we accuse them of steeling the chairs: most likely they were left on the dock and blew into the water and were washed away in the current. This was communicated to the renters. They were charged only the replacement cost of the two chairs $65. Otherwise they seemed to have a wonderful stay. I personally spoke to them on the phone and explained the situation. It is always unfortunate to have to withhold anyone's security deposit: and we do not make it a practice: 99.99% of all our renters get 100% of their security deposits back in a timely manner. As for the neighborhood: the undesirable dry lot homes that the good hardworking people of Marathon live in are what you have to see in order to get to the big, open water homes. It's not a bad neighborhood, the residents are nice hard working people that just can't afford to live in open water, million dollar, gated homes, like the vacation rental in question. I really feel badly that the renter in this instance felt the need to exaggerate this situation. The renters are very nice people and I am truly sorry that we had to deduct the cost of the missing chairs from their security deposit.
