Fun vacation - good location
"This duplex is very clean and spacious with a great balcony. Everything we needed for a comfortable stay was right there at the house. Washer and Dryer access was very nice and sure helped on a week and half long trip. Dock was clean but quite a long idle out to ocean. Kids didn't mind though as there are some cool places to see along the way. Good location - close to stores and restaurants. Owner and management company very nice to deal with."

"For our family vacation this year we chose the Keys because of our love of fishing and the water. 8 of us had a great time at Boot Key Retreat. The property manager was very pleasant, met us on our arrival and gave us a walk through the home. She advised her availability at any time if we needed anything.
The home is well maintained and has all the necessary items required making our week in Marathon comfortable. All the furniture was very comfortable and clean.
If you like to fish, this is the place, fish cleaning station, hose, lots of garage space to store your equipment and plenty of dock space. We caught plenty of fish, and caught our limit on some days. (keep a watch out for the resident Tarpon living in the canal!)
The pool is clean and a pleasure to jump in after a day of fishing. The basket of beach towels was a plus! We used the kayaks and the bicycles both in good working condition. The canal is quiet and provides an awesome view.
I do recommend visiting the Turtle Hospital, just a quick walk up the street. They provide a terrific service to the Keys and beyond.
The location of this home is great, Publix, Winn Dixie, K-Mart, West Marine, Walgreens are all close by as well as many local restaurants. We visited Key West twice and it was only about 50 minutes away.
This is a beautiful home, which looks great on the internet but is much better in person!
Looking forward to another trip down to the Keys!"

"I spent a glorious week at White Sands and will be returning for more. I've been staying at properties on Morton Street for about 15 years now. White Sands is the best of all. I wanted for nothing - it's got it all. Wonderful dock that treats you to wildlife at every turn, relaxing beach right out your back door, a fantastic pool just as private as could be, porch views all around the home, a wonderfully stocked kitchen with all the best appliances. Just writing about it makes me want to go back right now!
Nearby are great places - try Curry Hammock park for kayaking and you'll be lucky to see some bonnet head sharks. Marathon has a fun movie theater with tables and chairs instead of rows of seats, so you can enjoy dinner while you watch a movie. Bahia Honda State Park is not to be missed. Go to Sandspur Beach and you will find a beach right out of the Caribbean. The snorkeling off the beach is fantastic and if you love shells, it's the place to find them. Key West is always fun - the Hemingway House, Audubon House and even the Trolley Tour is fun. The Tropic Cinema is an award winning art house theater and a great place for a rainy day.
But, with all that said, you don't really need to leave White Sands at all to have an unforgettable vacation. The home is perfect. Enjoy!"

"We just returned home from a week's stay at this wonderful home. Views from the house are incredible. Nice fishing and snorkeling right off of the dock. It was quite windy last week so we didn't get a chance to snorkel at the reefs but saw plenty of sea life right around the little islands off the dock. Would definitely go back!!!"
