Great Family vacation home
"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!"

"The condo is set in a perfect location! We loved waking up and seeing the pool and ocean from the balcony. Very cozy furniture - we wanted to take the bed home with us! Enjoyed the restaurants that were within a mile from the property and the appliances in the condo. We also loved the tennis courts and the the walkway on the street, it was perfect for a morning or evening walk or bike ride! Owner was able to answer all our questions before we arrived at the condo and was very nice. Very friendly office staff and clean property. Would definitely recommend this property to others looking for a getaway."

"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!"

"After several years of renting houses in the Keys, what a treat to find this house. The owner was super, he met us at the house and gave us a tour and a very through briefing as to the operations of the house. We were a group of scuba divers and having the access to the ocean from the house was great. I was impressed by the attention that the owner gave us. I have rented in marathon before but i understand why all the reviews were great. I would stay at this house again without question. you can tell that he believes in repeat business. Thanks again Julio."
