Home away from home, with a view!
"My husband and I found Jerry and Deborah's wonderful Long Key property when they had had a cancellation. We stayed in the smallest unit, which is the perfect size for two people. The small floor space is used very effectively, and the kitchen and bath are nicely appointed. I found everything I needed to cook, including a strainer to rinse quinoa! We have a lovely view from the small deck, and the common area has lots of equipment to make your stay interesting. Jerry and Deborah have been most helpful. This is a great place!"

"My wife and I stayed here the week of March 14 to the 21st and had a wonderful time. The unit was very nice and clean. We had no problems and everything worked properly. Check in and check out was very smooth. The semi private pool was great. We would look into this unit again the next we returned to the Keys."

"The condo suited our needs very well. The layout is great as the living area is very open and has a wonderful full wall of glass to see the palm trees swaying in the breeze next to the ocean. The master bedroom provides the feel of retreating for the evening as the décor differs from then living area plus the master bath is well done. The kayak and bikes are a plus as we did not have the added expense nor did we have to be tied down to a specific day for the rental. Morning coffee with fruit and bagels was great every day on the patio. The view is so good that we never had the impulse to turn the TV on. This is a good location to unwind.
I would recommend eating at Sparky’s on Sadowski (5 minutes away) as the food is good and the local marina atmosphere is great. Savanah’s Sweets (5-10 minutes away) is a great place to get desert as it is a cute place with good eats and I strongly suggest the Pina Colada sundae (non-alcoholic). Spirit snorkeling is a good outfit for going to Sombrero reef. Fishing is good at Sombrero beach and snorkeling has a lot of fish, but the water clarity is not as good as going to Sombrero reef (this is true of all beach access snorkeling).
Todd and Jamie are professional, courteous and attentive people. We use VRBO all the time for our vacations and they have been the best as per the aforementioned and the property being as presented in the listing.
Thanks Todd & Jamie for helping us have a great vacation."

"I just want to say what a great vacation house this was for myself and my family. There was plenty of room for the 10 of us, and the house is located in a great area. The pool is awesome and the view in the morning and at night from the pool is second to none. There were a few things that need some attention....with some lights not working,a fan that did not work in one of the smaller bedrooms, and the hot tub stopped working the last 2 days. But all of that was minor. I would definetly recommend this rental to anybody looking to vacation in the keys. You are right in the middle of marathon, with plenty of attractions to see, and plenty of great restaurants to eat at. You are also only a little over an hour away from key west. Tim was very easy to work with, and book through. His thoughts about restaurants were spot on! Thanks for the great experience, and if we ever come back to the keys, we will be renting from Tim!"
