Alligator Reef Luxury Estates
"We rented all four homes for our wedding! It was spectacular! The property is gorgeous and there was plenty of room for our families. We loved the pools, sandy beach, hammocks and dock. Beautiful sunrises every morning! Such a private and perfect property for our wedding! Brandi and Kim were so helpful and great to work with! A memorable experience for sure, couldn't think of a more gorgeous property to get married at!"

"In June we had a wonderful week stay at “The Markeysa”. There were 10 of us ranging in age from 68 to 1 year old. The grounds are absolutely lovely, felt like we were checked into a resort instead of a private home. We all enjoyed the wildlife on the property; the children named all the iguanas and enjoyed watching the land crabs, lizards and birds.
We are from the Philadelphia area and this was our first experience with the Keys so we were disappointed with the ocean experience or lack of. We were so excited to have our own private beach and the actual beach (sand) part was nice with palm trees, a hammock, a picnic table and chairs but the seaweed and the stuff that came along with it (trash) was shocking to us who are accustomed to the Jersey, Maryland, South Carolina and other Florida beaches/ocean BUT that was our unfamiliarity of the area not the fault of the property. Most of us never ventured passed the seaweed mess but the few that went pretty far off shore to snorkel said it was most enjoyable. They saw fish, coral, a sting ray and the highlight was a baby nurse shark that stayed still long enough for all of us to be called down and for the brave to venture out to see it and take underwater camera pictures of it. Kayaking was also enjoyed by some of us. My recommendation is “bring water shoes”!
The cottage was a bit smaller than we expected. My son, daughter-in-law and their one year old settled in there for one night but on the second night, after some rain, then encountered some pretty big bugs and moved up to the main house. We also experienced some sugar ants in the main house, also do to the rain, but called Freewheeler Vacations and they immediately had someone out to take care of both problems. Gotta expect bugs in Florida I guess!
The house was great and well equipped. Ample bath & pool towels, two pack-and-plays, a highchair, hair dryers, even movies, area magazine and books etc. Kitchen had everything that we needed.
The lap pool and hot tub were amazing, the kids were in the pool from the time they woke up until it was time for dinner and the adults also loved the entire pool area.
Freewheeler Vacations were the best! From my first contact with them regarding the property to the end of our stay they were just great. They answered my MANY questions and concerns and with the utmost speed and were always courteous. Brandi and Sandy thank you so much, you are the best!
To sum it up we were sorry to see the week end."

"It was everything advertised and more. The condo was clean and had everything we needed for a great vacation. The area was beautiful much nicer than expected. It was quiet and the view from the lanai was just fantastic. I am definitely spoiled after staying at Ocean Dream. Thank you for making our vacation perfect."

"We stayed at the Happy Tarpon for one week in September. There were five adults in our group (our grown children). The house was absolutely perfect for our trip. Everyone had plenty of space and the 3 1/2 bathrooms were really a nice extra for us when we were all trying to get ready to go somewhere. We rented a kayak and stand-up paddleboard and had a great time trying them out...when we could pry ourselves from the pool! We kayaked right beside three manatee near our dock. We saw double water spouts! We stayed up and watched "Sharknado" (found the DVD on the bookcase). We could hardly get my daughter out of the pool and really enjoyed the privacy of the back patio, dock and pool area. We enjoyed numerous sunsets, despite some rainy weather. It was really as close to perfect as I can imagine. The kids have already asked if we can make this an annual outing! Much thanks to the owner for their gracious hospitality and for sharing their lovely home with us. It was truly a vacation we will always remember. We all hope we can return sometime!"
