  • Perfect Place in Paradise

    "Me and my fiancé found this to be the perfect place for us on our first trip to the Keys. We have so many wonderful memories from our trip and staying at Susie's quaint little cottage was a big part of it. The pictures you see are exactly what you get and its beautiful. We cooked and grilled most of our meals from the cottage and the kitchen is well stocked with what you need to do so. There's a small store within walking distance and has just about anything you need and a deli inside. We really enjoyed the dock at the cottage and being able to put our kayaks in right there and paddle out. Left them on the dock at night without fear of them being stolen. There's so much sea life you can see at the dock alone. We saw logger head turtles, a small barracuda and all kinds of species of fish living right under or by the dock. Manatees swim by the dock daily and I was able to pet one that came right up to the dock. Nurse sharks are frequent too and at varies sizes. We actually caught two small ones on our fishing poles that we put back. Caught plenty of Blue Striped Grunt that were the perfect keeping size and I used frozen shrimp and squid that are available at the small store. There's a small table and fresh water hose at the dock so you can clean you fresh catch. Sunrises and Sunsets are spectacular from the dock. There's a washer/dryer available and they work perfectly. We never needed Susie at any time during our stay but felt comfortable knowing she would be available quickly if needed. We look forward to our next trip soon and would love to stay at Susie's cottage again. Thanks again Susie!"

  • Happiness Is. . .PERFECTION

    "Our family could not possibly have been more happy with our stay at "Happiness Is. . ." There are 5 of us with our children being 16, 13 and 10 and every one of us had a fabulous vacation with all of our children agreeing that the condo was the best place we had ever stayed! The owners were so easy to work with and the condo itself was spacious, clean and well-stocked with everything we needed. Though, to be honest, we didn't spend a whole lot of time inside! The Gulfpointe community was very quiet, well-kept, and easy to find. The pool was very convenient as was the boat dock. We did not have a boat but we spent A LOT of time on the dock fishing, swimming, snorkeling and chatting with paddleboarders who went by. The dock is constructed of composite decking which was GREAT because we didn't have to worry about splinters! We loved all the big sliding glass doors--the views were fabulous! The location is fantastic--there are tons of dining and fun options within walking, bike riding or very short driving distance. Key West is close enough to enjoy for a day trip but there is tons to do right in Marathon. We ate at Keys Fisheries, Burdines, Island Fish Co., Cracked Conch Cafe and they were all fantastic! We also visited Curry Hammock State Park to kayak, Sombrero Beach for swimming/snorkeling, 7-mile bridge for the sunset, Sweet Savannah's for ice cream, Big Pine Key to see the Key deer, went on a half day fishing trip on the Marathon Lady, spent a day at the Dolphin Research Center, and Bahia Honda State Park (definitely the best beach that we've seen in the keys with the added bonus of a spectacular place to watch the sunset!). It really was a perfect trip and we hope to come back some time--even if we can't, we have already recommended "Happiness Is. . ." to several friends who are planning to visit the Keys. The ONLY thing I wish the condo had was a "Guest Book." We've stayed at other places that had a Guest Book and not only is it fun to see where other people are from but it's nice to have recommendations for food/fun from other visitors."

  • 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."

  • Perfect Paradise Vacation Home.

    "What a wonderful "home away from home" for my family and parents. The home is warm and cozy and private. My kids LOVED the pool and the benefit of the kayak as well as the gulf to swim and play in. Fishing off the dock and patio was also a blast. The owners were very welcoming to us and even offered to allow our children to come swim in the heated pool that is up the street at their hotel. We loved having coffee on the veranda every morning. We will definately be trying to rent this home for next years spring break."
