Best Vacation Ever!!!
"We vacationed in this home with our two kids and my husband's brother and sister in-law. We absolutely love the house! The kids loved the TV Room, where they could relax and watch a movie after a long day of boating. My sister-in-law and I love the state-of-the art kitchen. The Master BR has magnificent views from all windows - it is spacious and the closet could be another bedroom! Our agent was responsive to us and very accommodating. When you rent a vacation home you want a home that is as good or better than where you live. Shangria La was everything we could ask for. The dock is great and the water depth perfect for our 25 ft boat. We've already booked this home for next year."

"The house is exactly the way the photos decpict. It is beautifully decorated. The bedrooms and bathrooms were comfortable and spacious and the kitchen is well-appointed. The best part is the privacy and beauty of the property. My favorite part of staying at Mar Azul was waking up every morning from the master bedroom and looking at the ocean view. If you are looking to get away, this is the perfect vacation home. Lisa and her staff was a joy to work with. She answered every call and email. One night after a storm, some of the trimwork on the patio was damaged. I called Lisa to notify her and she had someone come out right away to clean it up. My husband and I are already trying to plan our next stay at Mar Azul for next year. Marathon is a convenient place to stay in the keys if you are looking to "key hop" to the other islands."

"We've been coming to this house for 4 years in a row. It's always very clean and it's nicely arranged inside. Another real plus is the downstairs equipment locker that's terrific for fishermen or divers."

"We just returned to Minnesota last night. The week at this property was outstanding! There were 5 of us. Two teenagers, two of us at 50 and my 80 year old mom. The house and property were perfect for all of us. Every amenity needed. The spot/dock is perfect for a boat and the dock is pretty new and very sturdy. The beds were very comfortable. The pool was the highlight and we loved to play cards poolside every night. I'm glad we paid to have the heat on in pool. The property has beautiful landscaping and lighting. The 3rd bathroom/shower is by the pool, very handy! I agree that the photos don't do this place justice. Very beautiful and spacious. Highly recommended. Rental company very easy to work with. We all wanted to stay longer! One thing that I want to mention to those driving in from the north, leave early. Traffic was crazy. It took us 5 hours to drive down from Fort Lauderdale. It was 12/27, so many were going down for the holiday. Just beware of traffic."
