Best Vacation Home & Place to Stay in The Keys!
"This is our 4th family/friends vacation in The Keys, and this home has been voted our favorite!! We spent last week with 8 adults & 2 pups celebrating my husband & kids father's 60th Birthday...and we are now Blessed with wonderful Memories!! The home was big enough to accommodate all of us very comfortably and plenty of gathering space to eat, play games & the indoor pool was lots of fun! We also rented Jim's boat for the week, and I must say, it just added to even more fun with fishing, snorkeling & sunset cruising...a boat in the Keys is a must!! It was also great having the beach right around the corner from the home...we spent a couple days picnicking & playing beach games! Caretaker Jackie was a delight and was very attentive. The home had everything we could possibly have needed! Marathon is the place to stay & this home doesn't get any better...wonderful home & vacation!!"

"This perfectly situated waterfront home on Conch Key allows to park your car and enjoy life. From the generous indoor living spaces meticulously cared for ,to the patio equipped with a barbecue and view of the water, to the large dock with lounge chairs, a table to filet your fish, a floating dock with bumpers to tie our boat for the stay. if standing on the dock and seeing Manatee or catching Tarpon and Snapper is not a wonderful unexpected pleasure the Sunset from the lounge chair is breathtaking! Walking around Conch Key is historic and special and I highly recommend your walk stops at the neighborhood convenience store where the worlds best Keylime Popsicle dipped in chocolate was found! A short walk or bike from the house is a walking, cycling, fishing bridge which is special to the Florida Keys experience. Heronsrest is a best kept secret paradise for the entire family or just a special getaway. I applaud the owner for fully equipping this property for fun, relaxation, enjoyment, and the comforts of home! We will go back as soon we can find an opening or consider to purchase this recently listed "For Sale" property!"

"My family (2 kids and I) along with 2 other couples shared this house. We had a wonderful, relaxing vacation. The property is very private and sits right on the bay. My son and brother caught many fish right in the backyard. The pool was wonderful---and kept very clean. The house is situated within walking distance of a Walgreens and Dollar Store. The grocery store is only a few minutes car ride. Also, Sombrero Beach is just 8 minutes away by car. Rich (the property manager) was very responsive to the few problems we encountered at the house. I would definitely stay at this place again!"

"We just got back from spending an awesome week at this house. The house is located in a convenient location in the middle of the key. You are a close boat ride to both the 7 mile bridge and Vaca cut which made getting to the gulf very quick. The house itself is very nice. The bedrooms are spacious, beds are very comfortable, the kitchen, living room, and outdoor porch areas are huge. One night during our stay we had 3 other couples over for a dinner party and were quite comfortable. The pool is very clean and the hot tub is large and seems brand new. There are bikes, kayaks, rafts, and countless other toys and water supplies. A freezer for bait and ice is right by the long seawall. We fit 3 boats along the seawall one day. Overall I highly recommend this house for your next getaway.
I am going to point out a few recommendations to the owner. This is not meant to dissuade any renters, because this house is great, just a few suggestions. For the price we paid, there are a few things that could be approved in my opinion. The wifi has very poor signal. The kitchen, while decently equipped, could really use some nicer cookware. I completely understand that it must be hard with renters overusing the cookware, but I really like to cook and had expected for a house at this price we would have a little better tools. The ice machine in the fridge doesn't make enough ice for a family of 3 (and we had 7 people). This isn't a big deal - just expect to stock the freezer drawer with ice for drinks. The living room has 4 fans which was WONDERFUL - but a few on the porch in place of the tiny lights would be nice.
Thank you for a wonderful family vacation!"
