About The Owner

Longtime Florida residents who have always loved and cared for this little piece of paradise called the Florida Keys. All the members of our large family come here and enjoy this wonderful place as often as we and they are able. When the weather 'changes' for us Floridians, we open our home to others in hopes that they too share this experience.

The Owner purchased this house in 1991

Why The Owner chose Marathon Area

Since the time we were small children and came to this area with our parents for fishing or mini-lobster season, it became a place to always come back to. A place to one day own. And so, we followed that dream and realized it. My wife and I are very lucky to have had the opportunity to do so.

What makes this house unique

From quiet serenity to loud family gatherings.

Your choice.

It truly lends itself to anything in between.

Perfect for large or extended family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Villa Casa Cayo is a wonderful home in a beautiful setting. It sits on a wide canal with mature landscaping that offers good privacy. The owners, the Amors, obviously take great pride in maintaining this property as can be exhibited by its condition and decor including the numerous family pictures that are proudly and appropriately displayed.

The kitchen is extremely well supplied with utensils, cookware, and spices. My wife, a wonderful cook, brought a box of assorted spices from home. When we first arrived she checked the kitchen first (no surprise) and told me to not even unload her spices from the truck.

There is an FWC officer that lives in a basement apartment. He was a very friendly young man who I didn't even see until our last night. His presence simply added to the sense of security already present at the property. The home sits in a quiet and lovely neighborhood within a short walk to the pleasures of Sombrero Beach. I'll add that being a pet friendly rental is mandatory for our needs. Our Pug gave wide berth to the comical iguanas who scamper off when approached. Plenty of other lizards around and sea life in the canal for your interest. My wife and I and one of our sons' small family all enjoyed our stay (6 months to 65 years old). Activities abound in the Keys (such as fishing, fishing, and did I mention fishing?). But if you just want to relax "at home" there are many comfortable settings, both inside and outside, at Villa Casa Cayo. The owners are professional, friendly and a pleasure to deal with. I highly recommend this rental.

Perfect get away!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 just stayed at this wonderful home! The owners were wonderful to work with and the home is just as it 's described. We walked to the beach, the cooler and beach cart they provided were awesome! It made all the difference in us not having to pack and unpack each day. The house was very clean and it had everything we needed, even nightlights! The bathrooms are well updated. The porch and fans were relaxing. I do wish we would have rented kayaks or paddle boards to explore the canals but with 2- 5 year olds, we just went to the beach daily. We did drive to Key West one day b/c it was supposed to rain in Marathon. We did try to rent a boat but they weren't operating due to the hurricane on the other side. We saw lots of life around the house including 3 manatees and jelly fish. We snorkeled all around the little rocky coves that are at Sombrero Beach. We went to the fish markets and grocery and ate most of our meals at the house. It was all great! Thanks David and Grace (and Kate) for allowing us to use your beautiful home!

Owner Review

  • 5 of 5

Though I cannot review this property because we had to cancel our trip unexpectedly, I would like to state that the owners were fantastic people to work with. We had reserved this property for an extended family vacation and due to a family emergency, we had to cancel our reservations. The owners were kind and understanding and fully refunded our deposit. They made an unpleasant situation much easier and that isn't something you find everyday. We will eventually make it to the house and I'm sure it will be followed with another excellent review.

Perfect Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had a wonderful spring break at Villa Casa Cayo. The description of the house was true in every way. The Amors have thought of everything visitors could need including the extra freezer under the house for storing ice and coolers to take out on adventures. We rented a boat for the week enabling us to explore, snorkel at the reef and fish for our supper. We also rented kayaks which were handy for exploring the mangroves and the surrounding canals. The upstairs porch is beautiful, and the trees make it feel very secluded. The beds are comfy, and the bathrooms are beautifully updated. Sombrero Beach is a quick walk around the corner, groceries and a handy K-Mart are minutes away, and the house is immaculately clean. Having stayed in many VRBO homes over the years, we feel this one is the best we have ever rented. The Amors are lovely to work with and respond quickly to any questions.

Mid Winter Break

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a mid winter break in the Keys. Villa Casa was all that was billed to be. Shared it with another couple and enjoyed your home as though it was ours. Everything very well appointed and plenty of room for everyone to relax and kick back. Hope to make it back next winter. 5 stars!!!

Christmas 2015

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for letting us stay at your home. Being able to keep our boat on site was a huge benefit. The house, dock and property were all in perfect shape. The new bathroom remodel turned out wonderful! My friends from TN were blown away by the home and the convenient location. My kids loved the wrap-around porch and eating outside under the covered porch. Will definitely rent this property again.
