  • Amazing Fishing Accomodations Deep Water Right down the block from the beach

    "I can't tell you how happy we were with this property. This was our first time renting at VRBO. The agent Bonnie was so helpful and realized we were new at this and was so easy to work with. We got to the property and the outside was well maintained. We all went to the back yard to look at the dock. We could see fish in the water and manatees over by the mangroves. We decided to unpack. There are two bedrooms upstairs and a 3rd bedroom downstairs. All of the rooms were neat spacious and cool. The kitchen is very modern and easy to cook in. The livng room is spacious with two couches and a big lounge chair. Plenty of room so we didn't get into each others way. The patio is screened in all around and my parents were able to sit in comfort and watch us fish. Ok on to the fishing. We caught a lot of snappers right off the dock. There were tarpon right off the dock that were hitting dead ballyhoo and we were catching 4-5 foot nurse sharks that my kids loved to catch and release. Lobsters right below the dock. Yep couldn't catch them as it wasn't lobster season but they are there. We also saw numerous sting rays and a few moray eels right off the dock and 1 cool looking octopus. The ocean is about 300 yards from this dock. You could not ask for better placement of the property. We had manatees come up right in the boat slip to drink from the hose as we were washing off the dock. To sum it up Beautiful property inside and out. Very friendly owner who called us when we had some questions about the fishing initially before we booked. She is super at communicating and very nice to deal with. Bonnie the agent is the same way. Easy to work with and got it done for us though we did not have much time to get it booked. Thank you so much and we will be back next year. Scott and Family in GA"

  • Awesome room

    "My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our time in Marathon (Jul 12-19, 2014)and part of the reason why was Ellie's Escape. It was perfect for us. The basket of goodies that Ellie left for us was also wonderful and finding a Keurig for coffee was a huge plus in my book, as well as the coffee pods. The room was not too big, not too small - it was just right. The fully equipped kitchen was great- it saved us quite a bit of money - being able to cook meals instead of going out all of the time, we especially loved the Margaritaville Tervis cups. Great to keep a beverage cool in the Florida heat. This was truly a great place to stay and felt very homey and comfortable - a wonderful place to relax and use as homebase during our vacation. From the nice big towels to the nice seating outside to the awesome Olympic sized swimming pool - we would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to everyone. Great property Ellie and thank you for the small touches that mean so much."

  • Relax in Luxury with a breathtaking view

    "Our family vacation was perfect. The pictures do not do justice to how lovely this home is. The sunrises & sunsets are breathtaking. The house is well laid out, with plenty of privacy yet large areas to gather in. The kitchen is huge and has everything you need to cook so we ate almost all our meals at home! The pool temp was perfect and the hot tub a welcome indulgence. The men fished off the dock and kayaked all over the area, while the women drank fruity beverages and sun bathed. The furnishings are high end, the beds comfortable and the sheets very soft. The house is private, but close to all the necessary stores. We have stayed in homes in Puerto Rico and St. Martin, but this place was by far our favorite. We will definitely be back. Book this place, you will love it!"
