Great House and Location
"We had a group of lifelong friends get together for our 50th Birthday Year celebration week. The house was great. There was plenty of room for everyone.The set up allowed for those who wanted to stay up later and hang by the pool to do so. Those who wanted to call it a night a little earlier could also do so peacefully. The location was convenient to everything we needed both by land and water. We rented a boat and could easily get to great snorkeling, resturants(recommended by Tim), or just out to see a sunset. We were even lucky enough to have two manatees come up in the canal and hang out by the house on our last afternoon there. We also were only about an hours drive to Key West for those who chose to go there for a day. Overall the "Goldfish Cartel" had an awesome week in a Fantastic House! We would definitely stay there again."

"My fishing partner and I enjoyed 10 wonderful days of fishing fun. This time of the year the Snapper fishing on the patch reefs is fantastic and is only a 10 minute ride from the marina. Regulars are very friendly at the Tiki hut for happy hours and share their snacks. Unit was very comfortable for 2 people and the out door grill was great for cooking our catch of the day. There is a wonderful jetty that extends out from the shore for setting in a lounge chair and reading our sipping on a cold beer. Fishing from the jetty is very good on an out going tide day or night. The surroundings are very peaceful and quiet like you are on your own island. We have been down to Lions Lair on Grassy Key on a reqular bases for 9 years and it gets harder to go home each time. Hans and Lisa respond to your needs to make your Keys visit very pleasurable and memorable. Location is also a short scenic ride from Key West and makes a wonderful day trip. Treat yourself and enjoy a great Keys vacation outside of Marathon on peaceful Grassy Key."

"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."

"We stayed at Corte de Luna Marathon home for our Honeymoon in early Nov 2014. We found the house to be spacious and very clean. The pool was more than warm enough for us New Yorkers. The beach is a 1 minute walk away. The beach is never crowded and there were often venders selling coco frio for rehydration. We kayaked boot key, snorkeled the sombrero reef, fished off of sombrero lighthouse, went to the turtle hospital, and visited aquarium encounters. American Caribbean was very accommodating. They allowed us to check in late and check out early. They also provided us with a welcome packet with suggested places to visit and eat. Our favorite food places were Barracuda Grill and Sunset Bar and Grill. Sweet Savannah's is also awesome for late night ice cream."
