Best Vacation Ever!!!
"We vacationed in this home with our two kids and my husband's brother and sister in-law. We absolutely love the house! The kids loved the TV Room, where they could relax and watch a movie after a long day of boating. My sister-in-law and I love the state-of-the art kitchen. The Master BR has magnificent views from all windows - it is spacious and the closet could be another bedroom! Our agent was responsive to us and very accommodating. When you rent a vacation home you want a home that is as good or better than where you live. Shangria La was everything we could ask for. The dock is great and the water depth perfect for our 25 ft boat. We've already booked this home for next year."

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.

"The house is exactly the way the photos decpict. It is beautifully decorated. The bedrooms and bathrooms were comfortable and spacious and the kitchen is well-appointed. The best part is the privacy and beauty of the property. My favorite part of staying at Mar Azul was waking up every morning from the master bedroom and looking at the ocean view. If you are looking to get away, this is the perfect vacation home. Lisa and her staff was a joy to work with. She answered every call and email. One night after a storm, some of the trimwork on the patio was damaged. I called Lisa to notify her and she had someone come out right away to clean it up. My husband and I are already trying to plan our next stay at Mar Azul for next year. Marathon is a convenient place to stay in the keys if you are looking to "key hop" to the other islands."
