Keys Dream House
Fantastic house and you can't find a more enjoyable, relaxing location. The house was furnished and decorated better than most any I have stayed in and being able to walk out and jump in the pool from the living room/kitchen great area was fabulous.
The dock was perfect for our boat with easy access to hoses for clean-up.
Only drawback was that the other access doors to the outside area were locked and could not be used. Understandable for some rooms but not for master bedroom or the office/third bedroom area. Minor drawback.
Can't wait to use it again...didn't want to leave. That was a sad day!
Most relaxing vacation ever!
The property was lovely, the house clean and well equipped. We rented paddle boards and a kayak and were out on the water most days. We discovered lovely restaurants but also cooked meals. The kitchen had all the proper tools and good quality knives and cookware. It was probably the most laid back and relaxing vacation I have ever taken. Waking up to that view every morning was delightful. The privacy was bonus. I hope to return.
Wonderful Vacay in Marathon!!
Absolutely loved the house....the views were amazing, kitchen was well-stocked, beds were comfortable and pool was amazing! Made a lot of great memories and can't wait to come back!!
Better than anything you can read about !
This place is like a dream come true. It is sheer magic. Stayed for 1 week. Rented a boat also. Can i tell you that this is the nicest place i have ever stayed in the Keys. It was perfect. Clean, quiet and tropical. Set up for everything you could want in the Keys. Amazing ! I will be back here soon. We are picky. We enjoy nice things. when you walk into the front door you will momentarily have your breath taken away. Pour a drink before you unpack and go sit in the hammock and free your mind.......I promise this will live up to the billing.
Driving up the private, gated driveway, all of us were extremely excited. We visited the Keys and stayed in this beautiful home for a family vacation with the grandparents and the lay-out of the home was ideal for that. But the view! It almost felt as if the ocean was there just for you! Once you enter the front door and see the pool overlooking the ocean, you'll never want to leave. The kitchen was perfect for family meals together, and you could easily enjoy watching the kids swim from the kitchen. It was quiet, clean and had everything we needed. We loved the coconut trees! The master suite was situated off by itself, and the second and third bedrooms shared a bath. I agree that this property is not newly furnished or remodeled, but it's clean and well appointed. It's a great house for enjoying the Keys in a private location that can't be beat.
Needs some tender loving care!
My husband and I just returned last night from out trip to the keys staying at this large ranch style home. We got in late and after a minor mix up with directions and addresses we found the right house. It is located on the point on the ocean with the canal on the side of the home for your boat. We did not fish, strictly R&R. The view is unbelievable from the pool area and it can't be beat. The home is in fair shape. Kitchen just got a new refrigerator but stove and cook top ranges with coil burners are really old. Lots of tile on counter tops in kitchen and bathrooms some starting to chip. Family room and sitting room couch covers ripped and in need of washing. Only one sliding door to exit to pool and you need some muscle to open it. Screen door ripped screen. The glass shower door in guest room was covered in soap scum. Some pool tiles falling off bottom of pool you could see them floating on the bottom of pool. As you drive up 101st ST. To the property you will notice lots of garbage along the heavy tree and brush line on the side opposite the homes, no one seems to clean this up not sure who's responsible, no garbage on property, just driving down the street it looks bad, like an unkept neighborhood. So if you ignore all these little things and enjoy the view or don't care because your out fishing all day I guess it's a good place, but for the money we expected a better quality home. We also rent in St Petersburg in the fall and the home is completely updated and very clean and we don't gave to start the laundry before we leave. Can't give the home 5 stars it came up short for us.
