Reasonable and quiet!!
"Really enjoyed our stay at this house. The few issues were quickly addressed by the property manager. Just wish the couches where higher!!! Beds comfy and dockage easy for our boat. At low tide be sure to come in slow!!!! Sitting outside at night was so pleasant, very quiet area."

"We had 7 adults and 4 kiddos and it was perfect. The location couldn't have been better, just a short stroll to the beach! Loved having the canal right outside the door for fishing. Sandy was an absolute delight to work with and is very reasonable. I would definitely rent this house again."

"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."

"My wife and I spent two weeks at this unit in January of this year. I am always a little anxious to see if the property matches the pictures, and was delighted when I arrived. The grounds were beautiful and the apartment clean, spacious, and well maintained. The beach across the street was really nice and we had it to ourselves every day. Perfect location....and a short drive to some amazing restaurants with outside dining to enjoy the beautiful sunsets. I had to ponder whether I should actually write this review as the selfish side of myself was afraid it would make it harder for me to get back in the future, but the place is EXCELLENT and the owners are great people to work with. 5 STARS!!"
