About the property

2 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 5) open water views!

There is a reason this place is called fisherman's paradise. Your boat is docked just steps from your back door and just a few houses down from the open waters. After a great day on the water, you can relax in this newly updated keys stilt home with a gourmet kitchen, stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. This home is a fantastic get-a-way for a small family or any fisherman who wants to relax and enjoy the Island Breeze. The interior is brand new and beautifully decorated with a great tropical feel.

You don't have to be a fisherman to enjoy this great location. Located directly in the middle of the Keys, nothing seems to be too far away. Spend a night on Duvall, watching the sunset at Mallory Square in Key West, go mini-golf at boondocks, or go bowling just 45 minutes away. There are also many attractions in town that you couldn't experience anywhere else. Some people may be shocked to drive past a turtle hospital. Yes, we have one! Stop in for a unique and fun time. Experience our little piece of SeaWorld by visiting the Dolphin Research Center. You can tour the location and even swim with the dolphins. There are also national parks with kayaking and biking trails.

Another famous Marathon attraction is the historic Seven Mile Bridge, a place that comes alive at sunset. You will see families taking pictures of the beautiful view, couples taking a romantic stroll, or even individuals running and biking along the 2 mile strip. If you are lucky you may sometimes spot anything from sea turtles to Spotted Eagle Rays. Those who stay past sunset, especially tourist who are visiting from a larger city, city will be left speechless at the sight of the night sky. The stars are incredible and usually very visible on a clear night.

There are so many places to enjoy in the Keys and this home is the prefect place to start!

Not worth the money.

  • 1 of 5

The house was in need of TLC. The furniture had rips which were covered by towels. The AC did not cool during the day and was very loud in the evening. Not what I expected at this price point. Never again!

Owner's Response: We are terribly disappointed to hear of your experience at our property. We have never had any complaints (including yourself while you were here) regarding our air conditioning. After reading your review I contacted the folks that are currently renting this week and they said there is definitely no issues with the temperature or any noise. The side chair does have a small rip from a prior pet but is being addressed. We love our little piece of paradise and hope your vacation was enjoyable.

House was very clean and well stocked felt him my. The only down point is the out dated sleeper sofa

  • 3 of 5

There was construction of both side of the house which made getting in and out very difficult. On three days one neighbor was having work done on his pool at all hours of the night which made those days hard to swallow no sleep. Dock needs immediate attention all the sock poles are loose as well as the sides. Very unsafe.

Great house, great deck!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place and just a great deck. The house was clean and neat and perfect for us. The deck was a great place to hang out. It was right across from a city park where we could walk and jog. The rental company was prompt and courteous. This is a great place for two couples or a small family.

Only two nits -- the owners should upgrade the cookware. A bit cheap and warped. Also, I had to call the rental company to get our deposit back. They should have initiated it.

Overall, this was a great place. I highly recommend!
