First Time to Rent a Home, First Time in Florida Keys, love to come back again!
"Small but beautiful home on gorgeous, well maintained grounds. Nice pool and jacuzzi, very shallow best for kids. Lots of wildlife including lizards, geckos, a couple snakes, white storks, and our favorite Iguanas. 3 bedrooms upstairs with two baths and 1 bedroom downstairs with 1 bath and laundry. We had a great time as we were two families that shared the home together with 4 adults and 3 children. We tried to catch fish off the dock, but it was a very short dock; a high tide only brings 2-3 feet of water, low tide leaves dry land/mud. It wasn't until we figured out the tide schedule and eating schedule of the fish, and putting chum and leftover fish heads/tails in a chum bag in the AM before we caught about 12 fish (7 keepers) and 2 nurse sharks (no real teeth) that we released. Easy access to great restaurants and grocery stores and diving/fishing areas. Picked up great lobster tails behind the farmer market area for cheap along with gulf shrimp. We felt like the only ones there as other homes were out of sight. The things this home needs is: 1) A rice cooker (we bought one and left it there for others, you can thank us now!), 2) a set of bowls for cereal or soups, there were only 3, and 3) most important is the bottom floor has NO ACCESS to internet and there is no phone downstairs. This was a real drag and we think the owner needs to put a much better internet wireless router and perhaps extend it physically to the bottom floor. The pictures look better than it is, but it is still a nice place that is clean and well taken care of. Lastly, beware the cleaning fee states $375 here but we got charged $425 in the contract, and tax gets added on as well. We would come back again."

"I have been coming to Islamorada on fishing vacations with friends for the past 6 years and love the area and all it has to offer. My wife and I decided this would be the perfect place to spend our honeymoon and rented the house for a week this fall. This house exceeded expectations in every way. Excellent location on lower matecumbe, secluded on a quiet street, but close to excellent dining with many of the keys best restaurants near by. The house also had a great kitchen with all the tools needed to cook a meal inside or out on the grill.
We also rented a 24' center console from vacation boat rentals in marathon for the week. The dock in front of the house has ample room up to two boats up to 26', and the canal was loaded with bait. Quick ride to the reef, or take indian key channel to the bay side. I have used other boat rental companies closer by, but I highly recommend using vacation boat rentals from marathon. They will deliver to the indian key channel boat ramp right near by the house. Just make sure to go slow your first time coming in the inlet to the house. It is marked with galvanized pipe on either side and is tight, but easy to navigate.
We had an excellent time, and look forward to coming back again."

"My family was there March 2015 and we loved the private beach. Prior to arriving we had planned to leave the property and visit other towns/beaches but we NEVER left the property during the day. This house has everything you need! Kayaks, chairs, fire pit, pack n play, hammock, bikes, board games, etc. We took turns exploring on the SUP/Kayaks - saw nurse sharks and other small fish right off the beach. One day, when it was the lowest tide we had all week, we walked out nearly 50yds to the water. The beach is grassy, so def bring water shoes. The sunrises are amazing and the views are just spectacular. We are looking to book our 2016 trip now and having sincere trouble finding anything remotely like this house. We LOVED it! Restaurants to visit: Mangrove Mikes, Robbies, and Lorelei's (most gorgeous sunsets)."
