  • 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"

  • Fantastic Vacation

    "We rented this house during the Labor Day week and was most impressed with the house, the location & ease of entry & exit. The bedrooms are large and comfortable, the kitchen is fully stocked and the layout is superb. The pool was a nice addition. The location was perfect, very close to the 7 mile bridge and lobstering & fishing. The grandkids caught fish daily off the dock and had several fish dinners for them. The place was very clean and we do intend to return many times. Thank you Joe 7 Mary for a wonderful vacation spot. Regards, CaptainBump"

  • Great stay in the Keys

    "We stayed for a week and couldn't have been more pleased. The unit is beautifully decorated, well equipped and in great condition. We enjoyed having the boat conveniently located across the canal from the condo. The complex is located less than a mile from Vaca cut providing easy access to either he ocean or Florida Bay. The property is very well maintained and the huge pool felt great after a long day on the boat. I definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing time in Marathon"

  • Good, Almost Excellent but......

    "First, The good.... This house would be rated excellent if it were rented as a 2 bedroom 3 bath house with it's own pool and dock. The master bedroom (king bed) and bath are absolutely beautiful! Very spacious with its own TV with satellite. The second bedroom (queen or full??) and bath is also very nice with plenty of room also with satellite TV. Large balconies for both with plenty seating on both. (I can't review the beds because I didn't sleep on either of these) A large living room area has ample, comfortable seating with a very large TV with satellite, a very nice sized bathroom with a shower and closet, a washer & dryer area and the dining area and kitchen are very modern and very spacious. All with beautiful furnishings and appliances, cookware and utensils for any need possible (even a note in the fridge to use any sauces if needed!!). OK, The bad.... The problem with this house lies with the so called "third bedroom."... This bedroom is in the basement which appeared to be an afterthought & not at all anything like the rest of the house. It was dark and musty smelling with the typical bugs you find in a damp basement. The small window a/c unit was kept at full blast the entire time to help rid the musty smell and we were constantly smashing little bugs. The bathroom was so small, not at all like the upper floors!!! You can practically wash your hands in the sink and wash your feet in the shower at the same time you use the toilet!! The shower itself was so small it was very difficult to wash your hair without banging your elbows on the sides. Oh, and the shower floor had duct tape, yes, duct tape on the floor. Apparently covering a hole, I don't know. The bed was a queen but was old, soft, lumpy and the sheets wouldn't stay on if you moved at all in your sleep. It also had a day bed which looked as if it was put there simply to fill a space. A great suggestion for that space might be a small fridge.....since the only entrance to this basement room is by the pool through the sliding glass doors with very cheap vertical blinds with slats that kept falling off!! It did have a nice TV stand with 3 drawers. The TV was a good size, however , the cable, not satellite like the others, was very spotty with a few local channels. Could say more, but.. Rent only if you want a great 2 bedroom/3 bath house with it's own pool & dock. Don't even consider the basement as living area!!!!"
