Myself and my teen daughters, who each brought a friend, took our first trip to the Keys and LOVED IT. It was a very fun and relaxing experience! First, we were impressed with the knowledge, assistance and friendliness of Rick, Property Manager, who met us upon our arrival. He helped us get acquainted with the area and get our luggage in. The home was roomy, clean and bright - very tropical! Exactly what we expected. Furniture was comfortable and clean, we were pleased that we had internet service. While we didn't watch much TV, cable was available. Kitchen had a big table for dining and playing games. The bathroom/shower served our needs and was clean. Plenty of towels were availabloe, and the washer and dryer were a nice touch.

We spent more time outside than in - the yard was great for grilling and sunning. Rick also showed us how to operate the boat and showed us how to get to our island! We spent many exciting days at our "private island" The cottage provided relief from the sun when we needed it. The swimming and snokeling were AWESOME - saw so many fish and creatures. Water was clear and warm! The boat was perfect for commuting to the island and enjoying the underwater show along the way. We saw fish - manatee - lobsters - crabs - dolphins - WOW! The location is perfect for visiting Key West or any of the Keys towards the mainland. The local sights and eateries were fantastic, lots of fresh fish and seafood! We are going back - it was a good price and they were very easy to work with. All questions were answered and information was readily available. We had a great time!

We had a wonderful time at the two 4 bedroom houses in Marathon---the setting was beautiful, the houses were spacious and perfect for our family reunion, and the weather was unbelievably good. Everyone in our family (age range 6 months to 78 years) enjoyed our stay; the houses were great, and there were plenty of nearby attractions to keep everyone happy and occupied. We definitely recommend the houses to others! It was an unforgettable, wonderful way to close out the old year and bring in the new.

Just as special as it was 11 yrs. ago!!

  • 5 of 5

I write this as I'm sitting in the 6th St. house. This is our second time renting this property. It's as charming as it was 11 yrs. ago. While the Island is no longer powered or has running water it's luxury camping at it's finest. We spent the last 2 nights on Dolphin Jump Key with the iguanas and had a wonderful time. Thanks to the property manager Tim for going above and beyond to make sure our stay was a great one. It's with sadness that we must leave tomorrow!! The crown jewel of this property is the Island with it's charming Conch cottage~may that never change!!

Awesome Vacation 2014

  • 5 of 5

What an awesome vacation we had on Dolphin Jump Key, also known as Little Russell Key. The main house was perfect for our family of 5. We basically were there just in the evening as we spent all day at the private island, snorkeling, fishing and kayaking. Everything was provided for us, a boat to get us to the island, fishing poles, kayaks, life jackets, snorkeling equipment and even a cooler to use. We also spent lunches with the many iguanas on the island. We were lucky to have seen manatees one day swim right by the island as we snorkeled and the crystal clear waters were perfect for fishing and kayaking. I would recommend this rental to anyone who likes a true relaxing Florida vacation.

What an amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

If your idea of a vacation is being pampered at the Hilton, then this may not be the vacation for you. If your idea of a vacation is being able to explore the local waters on your own and truly explore outside the confines of tour guides, this vacation is top notch. The island and the rental house in Marathon was everything it was advertised to be and more. Clean and well maintained. My daughters are 11 and 8 years old and have both been on Disney Cruises. They informed me that staying on the Dolphin Jump Key was the best vacation they have ever been on. We snorkeled around the island, caught lobster, swam with a sea turtle and saw countless other sea life. When the family had enough of roughing it “Robinson Crusoe” style on the island, we were able to go back to Marathon in a matter of moments for more touristy type entertainment. Jim, the local care taker, went out of his way to make sure that our needs were taken care of. We will definitely be booking another trip for next year.
