  • Keys Escape With a View

    "The family and I had a wonderful needed escape in a comfortable condo with a view. This is a top floor corner unit which provides a great view of the harbor. The screened in balcony was ideal for grilling at sunset and we enjoyed the the pelicans flying by at eye level. The comfort and amenities made us feel at home and we look forward to the next stay."

  • Salvation from Worst Winter Ever!!!

    "This past winter (2013/2014) was one of the worst for northern Indiana. Dealing with no sunlight and being buried in several feet of snow for most of the winter, we were questioning our very sanity by mid January. Before my wife had a nervous breakdown, we elected to use up some airline miles and found this quaint little island near Marathon in the keys. We enjoy camping and were looking for something rustic and more unique than just staying in a typical hotel. This was a perfect solution to our winter blues and was quite an adventure. We flew into Miami arriving late night, the owners of the island even recommended an affordable motel on the way to the rendezvous point because you have to check in during the day. We woke early the next morning and drove down to the meeting spot. There our contact person met us and took us out on a small skiff to the island and gave us a tour and instructions on just about everything relating to our stay on the island. The island does not have sleeping accommodations on it, however there are lots of comfy hammocks if you want to sleep under the stars and a nice picnic area with a fire pit and a generator (which provides power to the houseboat that is parked on a large pier on the island). We had a blast exploring nearby areas with the skiff, there are kayaks provided on the island, and one morning we even had two dolphins that were launching out of the water just a few feet away from our pier. Just a short ride from the island on the mainland there is a great restaurant/bar called the Island Fish Co. and they have great drinks and the food was good too! We enjoyed several meals there during our stay, and also grilled out on the island and enjoyed the privacy and seclusion that the island offers. Sitting by the fire pit each night felt like we were on "Survivor" (thankfully my wife didn't vote me off the island). We did invite some friends from the Marathon area over during the day for a cookout. There are several very large iguanas that hang out on the island, however if you leave them alone they don't bother you and they love bananas. Next time we "may" bring the kids because of the camping aspect of the island. It's a lot of fun and so quiet and peaceful at night. Highly Recommend to anyone looking to get away from civilization for a week to unwind."

  • Pre-College Getaway

    "Rating Details: I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was very clean. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: When we entered the house we were very excited. It was spacious and the location was perfect. The only problem with the house was an electrical problem with the bathrooms , which was fixed promptly. One thing that could be improved is lighting outside. We were unable to enjoy the outside at night because there were no lights working downstairs. Would defiantly consider to rent again."

    "Excellent house to rent, I have stayed there 5 times now and enjoyed each stay. The only recommendation I would make to the owners is that they provide more than one bath towel per person. This was the only inconvenience we had. Otherwise all was very good. Cindy even provided some nice fish fillets upon our arrival."
