January Trip to the Keys

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is immaculate and Michelle was a joy to work with. It was sad seeing all the destruction that the hurricane caused but they are hard at work rebuilding everywhere we went. There were manatees in the canal almost the entire week.

Be aware--the canal/channel from the ocean to the cottage is very shallow. I could barely get the 22 foot boat in and out on low tide and I doubt a large boat would work unless you come and go at high tide.

Amazing Rental

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I said at the house with our parents. We loved the house and location. The house is in the heart of Marathon and there are lots of things nearby. It was clean and well-maintained.

This was a good home for our Florida Keys vacation. Michelle was great to work with and very helpful both before and during our stay. We were on the move a great deal, but it was lovely at the end of the day to come home to a nice home. It was clean and convenient to everything. We saw a manatee in the canal and enjoyed the quiet street and neighborhood. All in all, highly recommended.

The Yellow House was fantastic(as always). It was very clean and everything worked the way we wanted it too. We had a great time and are already looking forward to next year's trip. Sherry and Jay treated us like part of their family and we could not have asked for better hosts. I have already told my friends/co-workers about this place and have recommended it highly. The fishing/lobster diving we did was a great way for the family to enjoy time together. Once again, we had a great time in Marathon and we look forward to next year's vacation!
