The Perfect Keys Paradise
"You will not find a better home than the"Million Dollar Baby". This home offers everything you could ask for and more. Take in the breath-taking views of the open Atlantic from the tile patio, the pool, or the master suite . Inside this home offers amenities galore and outside everything you need for relaxation and family fun. Mangrove Snapper are plentiful right off the bulkhead for a wonderful fishing experience. My grandchildren had a blast. We rented Kayaks, did some snorkeling and never "had" to leave the house. We made a visit to Key West for a little shopping but couldn't get back soon enough to enjoy ourselves poolside. The pool is amazing and the kids loved the Manatee that visited us. We also had a large Iguana that visited as well. The home is beautiful but I have to say we didn't spend much time inside. My daughter is an artist and I just knew she would spend her time painting but that was not the case at all. We just took it all in and relaxed. I'm sure she'll be painting from memory because the views will be hard to forget. Thank you Kate for sharing your beautiful home with us."

"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."

"We arrived saturday, after a long drive through Florida. As soon as we opened the gate to our beautiful retreat, I knew we had found paradise! The grounds were absolutely gorgeous and tropical. Coconut trees and palms surrounded out private pool that became our relaxing spot almost everyday! The boardwalk to the pier was like our a little nature trail that lead to the bluest waters this South Carolina girl had seen. We rented paddle boards and could just paddle right off the dock into the ocean and down quiet canals. The home was exquisite and from this designers point of view, was top notch. Just being at the house was like being in paradise. Lisa has done a wonderful job in furnishing this beautiful home. And she wants you to consider it your home while you are there. Lisa is very easy to work with and wants to make sure that you have everything you need. Checking in and out was so easy. Well, checking out was hard because you do not want to leave. The nice thing about being in Marathon is that you have great grocery stores and other shopping (walgreens etc) close by as well as wonderful restaurants. The sunsets off of seven mile bridge are way better than Mallory Square, but a day trip to Key West was definitely a highlight. We rented a boat while there for one day and I would recommend doing so if you have a person that can read the gauges for sea depth and stuff. We fortunately has a great captain in our group and saw some wonderful sites. This is a great place for a relaxing get away and we will be back and hopefully for 2 weeks next time. Mar Azule is the best!!! And Lisa is Awesome!!!"

"This was our second trip to the keys but our first time renting Pretty Joe Rock. We loved it so much that I can't imagine staying anywhere else for future visits to the Keys. This was a perfect location a private island that wasn't too far from shore so we could easily boat over to the private dock, get into our car and drive off to dinner or where ever we went for the day. Loved that kayaks were provided for rental use and really enjoyed just kayaking in the bay. The kids enjoyed snorkeling around the island looking for lobsters. The island even had a juvenile sea turtle that I watched swimming every morning. I also enjoyed trying to spot the island iguana (still not sure if there was more than one but there is at least one fairly big one). Great view of the sunrise from the boat dock deck sitting on the bench swing and an even better view of the sunset from the deck with lounge chairs. Basically trying to convey that if you want a great rental that is in itself a vacation this is it."
