Nice and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We traveled with our 5 and 7 yr old boys and another couple. We truly enjoyed the corner location and the fishing off the dock. This property is centrally located to everything in marathon and close to get out to the Atlantic. The house was clean and in a nice quiet neighborhood with friendly neighbors. Felt like being at home. We come down to the keys every year and This is definitely our favorite so far and plan on continuing to stay here

A great family vacation for our family.

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful view for a vacation. The water was crystal clear and the kids enjoyed kayaking in the canal. The home was very clean and neat.

A beautiful back porch with a table and umbrella for eating outside.

All the amenities of being at home. The kids also enjoyed bicycling in the community. We would definitely come back again next year. This could be our home away from home. The home was decorated very much in style with The Keys setting.

Newly Remodeled Boaters Dream / We will be BACK

  • 5 of 5

Its exactly as advertised ( A Boaters Dream). Minutes to either ocean and if its windy we ended up fishing the bridge. The home was newly painted and they had the furniture redone. There was a $3000 king memory gel mattress set in the master bedroom that was extremely comfortable. The TV has a premium Direct TV package. The owner had 18 bags of ice for us to use and added extra kayaks and bikes so our entire family could enjoy this tropical area. They also added a new patio set and has a new hunter fan and light at the corner gazebo. We had a ball sitting around the dock at night watching the fish jumping as the kids were catching snappers off of the dock. .

We loved it and we will be back

Nice waterfront property that needs major TLC

  • 3 of 5

I gave this property a three because of the great location and outside area. The property sits in a corner lot, canal access in the back and on the side. The house is actually a trailer house which I would not have minded except there is no mention of it on the website description. The images on the website must be from when the property was new; the current state of the property NEEDS A LOT of TLC: there are cracks on the tile floor, the ceiling in the kitchen area has water stains, the closet door in the master bedroom does to close, the dryer has a loud squealing noise that eventually stops when drying, the canopy in the back porch does not open (one of the arms is broken), the wood deck in the back needs repairs and finally the outside grill shown on the website is no longer working, in fact is rusted and does to work at all. The website also mentions a dingy in the back but none was available. There are several kayaks and bicycles you can use.

I do want to mention the owner, John was very responsive and nice when we spoke on the phone. Our overall stay was pleasant, mostly because of the location of the property but I am one of those people that appreciates when a property is well maintained and this one was not.

Owner's Response: Im sorry the tenant didn't realize that we had just replaced the large older grill with a a nice weber grill . We didn't remove the old one so we wouldn't disturb the tenants. The new weber was awaiting their use. We did have a roof leak during a bad storm last week and repaired the roof . However we didn't have time to repaint the ceiling. We didn't realize the dryer needed a belt and only wish they would have told us. The canopy is less than a year old and we have a canopy arm on order that we are waiting for. The tile happens to be 4 years old with hairline cracks and they never have been a issue. We always want to make sure our tenants are satisfied. Our only hope is that they let us know so we can correct the issues. We tried to help this renter financially by giving them a $500 discount as a last minute rental. We were never told about any issues. We also were never asked about the dingy that was sitting on the side of the home.

Excellent Property, Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent the past week here - it was exactly as advertised. There were seven adults with us and there was plenty of room for all. The kayaks and bikes were in very serviceable condition and we put them to good use. Be sure to look for the manatees at Boot Key (with the kayaks)! The home was very clean and well-kept. We'd stay here again and highly recommend this property to anyone.

We try our best to try to make our home comfortable It is a simple keys retreat and we always enjoy seeing our renters getting a real feel for the keys. That's why we furnish bikes and kayaks in hopes that they will see some of the true keys nature that surrounds this area. Your family was absolutely wonderful and we look forward to you returning.
