Summer Rental 2017

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Bill and Monique for use of your beautiful home away from home. We have never enjoyed the Keys so much. This trip was the first Keys trip to include our 4 adult children and we could not have picked a better location. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute and Saturday comes way too fast. We hope to visit this amazing place again soon.

Awesome property and location!

  • 5 of 5

House and cottage was perfect for our extended family. Teenagers had their own space in the cottage and loved it as did rest of family. House and grounds are maintained in impeccable condition and owner is extremely responsive and available to address any concerns or answer questions. Just minutes to grocery, restaurants, etc. including walking distance to Sombrero beach. Ocean access is literally 5 min from dock and fishing is always great. This year produced a huge White Marlin! A trophy and lifetime memory. Thanks Bill for use of your home and we look forward to our return next year.

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Bill for allowing us to stay in your Marathon Key location! The house is gorgeous and in a great location for water, beach, and shopping access. This location is minutes away from two big grocery stores (Publix and Winn Dixie), as well as a Kmart store. Bill and those who work for him were prompt to our every request. Their response time was next to immediate. There was a fire in the area the week we stayed, and Bill contacted us to let us know about road closures. How great is that? The house is a great size for multiple families who both enjoyed time together, and needed time apart. What is better than four bathrooms! The ability to use kayaks and paddle boards at a whim was wonderful. And we enjoyed having the pool to ourselves, along with plenty of places to lay out. The outdoor speakers are a nice touch. The outdoor grill was easy to use and my BBQ chicken turned out perfect. There were plenty of plates, bowls and utensils. The kitchen is well equipped and the two tea drinkers in the party appreciated the tea kettle as it is seldom found in rentals. There were baskets just inside the patio doors filled with beach towels! This was fantastic for those of us who pack light for flying. I should note there were hair dryers too. Additionally, it was great to have every light switch labeled. Super helpful. When the Keys come back around as our vacation destination, we will be certain to look at Bill’s place first.

Our forever summer vacation rental house 🌴

  • 5 of 5

First of all, I wished we could own this beautiful beach vacation home!!!! It was exactly as described, fully stocked and the pictures do not do justice for the feel of the "openess" for the inside of this home or for the outside by the pool, tiki hut, or outside grilling area! It even has an ice machine and wet bar inside, perfect for our margaritas! Our family truly had the best vacation at this home, kids loved the kyacks and paddle boards provided and the dock fit our 27' boat perfectly. We loved the secluded feeing of this property too! Thank you Mr.

Blum for being so wonderful to work with and easy to get a hold of. We will be booking again for next summer☀️

Family Fishing Fun

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing extended family vacation. The house is very spacious and the separate guest house allowed more privacy. Outdoor area is the best part. Lovely pool, plenty chairs, comfortable chaise lounges and a large dining table under tiki hut. Large grill which made cooking easy. Plus comes with paddle boards and kayaks. The best is it is on a canal not far from the ocean. So fishing was great. Saw a couple of nurse shark and one day my son caught and released ~4 ft shark right from the dock. My daughter appreciated the manatee and one day one followed her and my son home on the paddleboards. We turned on the hose and gave him some fresh water and he stayed a long time drinking and rolling over right next to my kids on the paddleboards - Priceless.

Location is great, short walk to Sombrero Beach and short drive to grocery stores etc.

And Bill was a pleasure to deal with from day 1. Thanks for sharing your wonderful home and for your professionalism. Family wants to come back.

Our Third Visit

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year in a row renting this beautiful home. In the past year the owners have installed all new doors and windows, a new ac unit and redid both master bathrooms. They also included 2 new paddle boards for our enjoyment. Our family vacations continue to get better and better. The owners of the property really care about it and about the people they rent to and it shows. Every interaction with them has been a pleasant one. Last year during our stay the dryer broke on day one by day three we had a brand new dryer delivered and installed. Our first year staying here we made the mistake of leaving the hose run which is a huge no no and costed the owners a few hundred dollars increase in their electric bill. To say the least I'm sure they were not happy and we felt just awful. We offered to pay the difference but they would not allow it and continued to be pleasant and treated us like family. I will always be grateful for their kindness and it means a lot and for that we will continue to rent from them year after year and enjoy their beautiful home. Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Blum for sharing. I hope this helps in making your decision to rent.
