Father's Day weekend
"Stayed over the week of Father's Day weekend and can only rave about the house and location! The home has everything you could need from beach chairs and umbrellas to a deep freezer for your ice and bait! But what made the vacation was Sherri and Jays amazing hospitality making sure we had a perfect stay and Jay even came out to meet me in my boat to make sure I got in the canal okay with our boat. Overall I won't stay at any other property that is not managed by Vacation Rentals! Thank you Sherri and Jay for making my birthday and Father's Day a perfect week!!"

"We spent six days at this piece of paradise for a truly relaxing vacation. Our island home for the week was perfect...excellent accommodations and spectacular views from the dock and the decks. Use of the included boat afforded us opportunities to fish and cruise in the area. We could not have asked for a better vacation. Looking forward to our next stay at Pretty Joe Rock."

"excellent vacation site, great accommodations. Dock was perfect for our 20 footer and easy access to the Gulf and Atlantic. Stairs were a bit much especially on refills but probably gave me much needed exercise. Thanks Jim for a wonderful vacation."

"I don't think I have ever had a more relaxing vacation. My family of 12 (parents, in-laws, teenagers, young adults and friends) all spent 2 glorious weeks at Mesa del Sol in Marathon, Fl. This place is everything is looks like in the pictures and so much more. My parents who don't do well with stairs (not until a new knee is installed anyway) had their very own suite just off the kitchen which walked right out onto the patio. They were thrilled! All of the extra refrigerator space came in handy as well in that little kitchenette! Everyone else was very comfortable in our bedrooms upstairs and never had any issues with finding shower time for all. I loved the pool on the patio. Being about 8 months pregnant during our visit, that is where I spent most of my time! The water was perfect day and night. It is not a pool to swim laps in but it is one where you can lounge and soak up some sun while reading a book! I love the bench seat in the deep end! What a treat! The kitchen was well stocked with the essentials for cooking and baking. We made most of our meals in the house. The grill was used some but we didn't use the smoker. We found everything we needed in the stores nearby. Just a mile away you have Publix and Winn Dixie for groceries and the guys found the KMart right there very handy for all of the fishing supplies and fishing license. We really only left the house about 5 times in two weeks to check out nearby Bahia State Park and of course, Key West. Easy drive to both - Key West took just about an hour and was easy to get to. Thank you for sharing your home with us! We will definitely look into staying again should we choose Marathon as a repeat vacation destination!"
