Atlantic Ocean via the Vaca Cut.
Swimming: You'll be glad to get your feet wet in the crystal-clean Gulf waters. At the beach, you can bask in the warm sun, swim or snorkel.

Bring some bait and tackle and take our rods and reels and set out on a quest for Mangrove Snapper, Yellowtail, Grunts, Tarpon and all the other species native to the Keys. In addition to fishing from our dock, there's also back-country, fly, bottom and deep sea fishing. Guides, party boats and charters are all locally available. Still not enough? There's a bike treail nearby that'll take you to the famous Sevel-Mile Bridge (even better, we'll provide the bikes).
Dining and Entertainment: With several great restaurants nearby featuring the Keys' finest and freshest seafood, there's always a place to whet your appetite. Last and certainly not least, Key West is less than an hour away. Key West is the perfect place for a day trip where you can shop, eat and watch live entertainment.

Gerry's House-Grassy Key
Gerry's House-Grassy Key
Location location location...this location was superb...quiet, semi-secluded, few houses nearby, very private. The house was nicely furnished, included everything you would want for enjoying the water-snorkel gear, fishing rods, kayaks. Rental agent and maintenance folks were concerned and responsive...owners are very nice folks. Great area for jogging, bicycling, etc. Half-hr. from Islamorada, 10 min, from Marathon, 1 1/4 hr. from Key West.

Owner response: I'm so glad you had a good time at Gerry's Florida House. Thanks for all your positive remarks, we really appreciate the feedback. Gerry
Just got back from Gerri's house. One of the best places I have ever stayed. Well worth the money. Loved everything from the pool, spa, dock, snorkeling biking, and so much more. We went for our 40th anniversary with another couple. I will go back! Thanks for having everything there we could have possible needed or wanted. It was the BEST!

Owner response: Thank you so much for taking the time to let us know you had a good time at our house and enjoyed the amenities we provide. We're so glad to hear from a happy renter. We hope to see you again soon.
Being our first trip to the keys, Gerry's place is exactly the type of place my wife and I wanted to celebrate 25 years together. The location of the home was perfect. A quiet neighborhood close to restaurants, shopping, and right in the middle of the keys. The house was wonderful, especially the screened in porch, what a view. M wife loved the pool and hot tube. Sitting around the pool or hot tube and looking over the gulf was very relaxing. For an avid fisherman the dock and kayaks were great. If you are looking to fish with a guide I would recommend Captain Christ Morris "Game On" charters in Marathon. We had such a wonderful time that we are planning another trip to Gerry's place.

Owner response: Congratulations again on your 25th Wedding Anniversary. We're so glad you spent it at our vacation home in the Keys and that your had such a great time there. We too love the screened in porch as well as the spa and pool and are glad you enjoyed fishing from the dock and kayaks. We do hope to see you again and hope you can maybe spend your 26th Anniversary at Gerry's Florida House. Thanks so much for your positive remarks - we love a happy customer.
This house has it all! We so enjoyed our week here. Great location. The owners and property manager were awesome! Either relaxing at the pool or looking for seashells on your own beach!!! We took our kiddos (2 & 5) , Grandma & Grandpa joined us also. We all fit great and each bedroom has its own BATHROOM!!! The kitchen was well stocked and stores are so close. We enjoyed dinner out at Sparky's Landing. But it was so fun to make dinner at the house and eat on the screened in porch area looking out at the water! We all had so much fun fishing off the dock....my 5 year olds first time and she caught so many fish. It was really exciting. We took a quick drive to Key West for a day and also went to swim with the Dolphins at the Dolphin Research Center also in town. The boys went on 2 fishing trips. There really is something to do for everyone. If your looking for some down time and adventure!! Thank you for a great week!!!

Owner response: Thank you so much for taking the time to post your feedback on your recent vacation. We're always delighted when our guests enjoy our home as much as we so. We try to anticipate and supply the needs of our renters, so thanks for letting us know that we are doing this. Our favorite part of the house is the enclosed porch. It's so relaxing and the views are incomparable which makes it an ideal place to have a nice dinner, as you mentioned. Thank you again and we hope to see you in the near future.
Best Keys Trip EVER!!
Best Keys Trip EVER!!
My family (husband, our daughter, daughter's fiance, and our son) stayed for a week this past August. We had been to the Keys many times before this over the last 12 years mainly around Duck Key area. This was BY FAR the best vacation we have ever had!! Absolutely everything about the house was exactly as stated in the descriptions and then some (super clean and all necessary items were there). We loved the location (so close to everything we love - including the town of Marathon with so many great restaurants (Franks Grill for sure and Sweet Savannahs was a super good find), right on the water, as well as the private pool and jacuzzi. I got scuba certified while we were there this time to catch up with the rest of my family. We will definitely be staying here again in the future!! Wish we could go back right now!! Our only bummer was the day we left, tropical storm Isaac decided to show up - but we were so grateful it was at the end of our wonderful trip ;o) With 2 graduations coming up next year, not to mention our daughter's wedding - we won't be making it back right away, but it is definitely on our "to do" list as soon as we possibly can!! LOVED IT*******!!!!!!

Owner response: Thanks so much for taking the time to let us know you enjoyed your Keys vacation at our home. Nothing makes us happier. Since we can't be there ourselves all the time, we love to have people there who love it as much as we do. We do hope to see you again in the future. Again, thanks for your wonderful comments. We wish you congratulations and much joy on your family's upcoming milestone events next year. All our very best wishes to all of you!
We always have gone to Mexico and love it and all four of us had some misgivings about Florida. The minute we arrived at Gerry's house, we knew we found our Florida spot. The pool is one of the cleanest, warmest pools we have enjoyed in 20 years of renting homes. We found the house very clean and comfortable, including a great kitchen for cooking--and that is all I can say about the inside because we live outdoors. The porch patio is a great place to have morning coffee and dinner with great views of the water. Every afternoon we took our drinks and walked the long pier and sat and watched the birds while the guys fished. The whole neighborhood is peaceful and quiet and offers a sense of privacy. All in all, we highly recommend Gerry's House to vacationers that want to get away from it all!

We had the best vacation at this house. The views are amazing. The house is very nicely decorated and landscaped. They provide everything you could ever need for a fun vacation. We really enjoyed watching the sunset off the dock every night. It is also fun to walk on the doc and look for sea creatures in the water and fishing is a must. The pool and hot tub are the best part. We spent so much time in there. I would definitely recommend this house to a friend.

BEST PLACE WE EVER STAYED IN THE KEYS
We had a fabulous week at Gerry's. Everything we needed was provided. Our young children loved swimming in the pool and fishing from the dock and we really enjoyed the hot tub/spa. Kayacking was perfect and we really liked the beach bikes. We walked early every morning with our kids in the very quiet and safe neighborhood. The house was so private, we thought we were on our own island and yet we were minutes from great restaurants and The Dolphin Research Center which is a must see. We're already planning our trip here next year.

A lovely 2-bedroom home on the gulf side in a quiet area. The home well equipped with bedding, towels, kitchen appliances, and Washer/Dryer. The bathroom's were in each of the 2 bedrooms which is fine until you have more than 4 people which makes it a bit odd opening a bedroom door to get to a bathroom. The pool and hot tub were very nice as well as heated. It takes a little effort to figure out how to make the hot tub hot (use the book with pictures). The view was great looking north however we could not see the sunset even from the end of the dock during the Month of March. There was a very friendly cat that seemed to be a resident of the property. It meowed a lot until we offered it some food. The waterfront was less desirable as there was a massive amount of sea grass you had to trudge through to get a kayak or canoe in the water. The worst by far was the horrible smell from the rotting sea grass which most resembled the smell of horse manure. As long as the wind blew out it was fine. This is the third time in 3 years we have rented homes in different parts of the keys. I would say this was the least desirable compared to ocean side in Ramrod Key near Big Pine followed by Stock Island just north of Key West. I did like the pool, hot tub, use of Kayak's and big screened in porch. If I owned this property I would fix the sea grass problem with a sea wall like some of the neighbors have. All in all we still enjoyed our time in the Keys! We will most likely go in 2012 seeking yet again another property to enjoy.

Owner response: I'm sorry that your stay warranted only two stars. We go to considerable effort to provide those things that will make your stay comfortable and pleasant - the use of kayaks, bikes, fishing gear, snorkeling gear, dvd's games, linens, comfortable beds and a kitchen with everything you need to make great meal There's a neighborhod cat who lives on Bailey Street who's owner is gone all day. She loves to hang out at any of the neighborhood rentals where vacationers may feed her and give her attention. If you're not a cat lover - just don't feed the cat. Nyla has a home of her own on the next street. Unfortunately we need to have a louvre bedroom door because the air-conditioning system is in the bedroom hallway and it needs to be lovred for the return air. The seagrass is seasonal (winter months in particular) and there is no solution for getting rid of it. It is natural for the Keys and the Ocean and Gulf side deal with it seasonally. We are prohibited by law to change the natural shore line. Anyone with a seawall put it in several years ago. The grass comes from the Everglades and we have found that there are only a couple days for a couple of hours that the wind blows in the right direction to cause a very unfriendly odor. With the great views and wonderful amenities, we find the grass to be a minor discomfort. On the plus side - it attracts great water birds. Enjoy you stay next year in the Keys wherever you choose to go.
Home away from home!
Home away from home!
We’ve stayed at Gerry’s House a few times and keep going back because it offers everything and more that we’re looking for in a vacation home. It’s a “home away from home” with all the amenities to make your stay as comfortable as can be. My husband and I enjoy a bike ride or walk in the morning in the very quiet, safe neighborhood near the house. We also enjoy walking the kids in the stroller around the area. The kayaks are a great way to view the neighbor’s houses from the water. I would suggest that you bring water shoes to trek across the coral or sea grass, depending on the season. The pool and spa are just delightful and I appreciate the continuous filtering of the spa overflow into the pool. It’s hard to get the kids out of the pool to put them to bed at night. My brother-in-law loves fishing from the dock while his kids snorkel in the waters nearby. We all really enjoy the enclosed lanai with its comfortable rockers and large dining area. We like seeing the local water birds who visit in the morning and at dusk. The close by Wreck and Galley is a good place to grab a meal, as is The Island and also the Keys Fishery has great local seafood. The kids like to go out on the pier at night with flashlights to see what creatures they can spot in the deep dark waters. All in all Gerry’s is a great place to stay in the Keys and we’ll be back.
