Guestbook comments from the manager

Kasandra, Just a quick note to let you know how enjoyable our stay was at the sombrero house was. We thoroughly enjoyed the heated pool at the end of the day to float around and relax in. Then later sitting in the hot tub on the upper deck afterwards was sp soothing just before bed.

The pictures of the house are exactly what we got when we arrived.

Also the prompt response to our questions/inquiries was very satisfying. Customer satisfaction is obvious a high priority for your company.

The beach that is a 5 minute walk away was gorgeous,The kids enjoyed seeing the dolphins just offshore.

Again a wonderful week was had by all, My wife said we should rent this house again the next time we come down, which we would serious consider.

Wonderful week in the Keys in this home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is a little slice of heaven. The home is decorated beautifully and every thing is there for you to just relax and enjoy. Beach and bath towels, linens and every kitchen item you could possibly need. The home was very well kept, clean and exceeded our expectation in terms of size. Each room had a television which was great for the kids to go and relax in their own space at the end of the day. The pool temp was perfect for all day, and evening swimming and it is a 10 min walk to beautiful sombrero beach. We saw manatees in the canal, iguanas, geckos and pelicans almost daily. This house is in a great location to local shopping, the publix is 5 min away, as well as many kid friendly activities, such as the dolphin research center, turtle hospital and Aquarium encounters. We took an easy ride into Key West for the day and that was a blast too!

Great home!

  • 5 of 5

This home was by far one of the best we have stayed in! Loved the porch over looking the pool and canal. Very clean stocked with plenty of towels and even some starter toiletries and kitchen needs so you don't have to rush to the store right away. Will definitely stay again!

Marvelous in Marathon

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful Holiday Getaway in The Keys. The weather was sunny & hot so 6 adults were able to fully enjoy this tropical paradise. The house has space for everyone to get together or retreat alone if desired. The kitchen allows space for cooking in or the deck for grilling out to stay and enjoy house. The pool area is the HIT of it all! Get great SUN, or shade whichever you wish enjoy the animals that will frequently join you. Like a traveling zoo and fabulous entertainment.. lizards, iguanas, fish, manatees & ibis. Then the Hot Tub is the way to close each day with a night cap and get ready for the next day to repeat. The place is well maintained.

Near by includes: Sombrero Beach; Turtle Hospital a must do; Publix for shopping and wonderful restaurants. Native Taxi gets you anywhere at a reasonable price and prompt. Easy drive to Key West for a visit try Lloyds Bike Tour! CRAZY FUN. Little Pine Island is a MUST for an unique, romantic, special event dinner.

Exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this property! Everything was great for our family of four, which included kids aged 12 and 10 that loved the land crabs and geckos hanging out in the landscaping near the pool (no worries - they are very skittish and will not bother you). We even saw a few iguanas! The pool was awesome (bigger than you would expect and just deep enough to be fun) and we spent more time in it than we ever anticipated. The location is fantastic - close to the beach and near everything we needed for our stay, as well as convenient to all of the restaurants and attractions that we wanted to visit. We enjoyed our time hanging out at the house as much as we did diving, snorkeling and kayaking. We also enjoyed the sea turtle hospital, Bahia Honda state park and a day trip to Key West. When we return to Marathon we will definitely stay here again!

Family celebration trip:)

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect! Everything exceeded our expectations! Beautiful property! The place was clean and very well maintained. It felt like we had our own little private oasis. The location was a huge plus. My niece and I got geared up for a nice long run to the beach and before we knew it, after .27 miles (according to my IPhone),we were there! It was that close!! Everything we needed (beach ,Kmart,Publix, many restaurants)was right there for us! We enjoyed every aspect of this property even our pampered little pug approved!

Really is a Tropical Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This house was great. Back yard was a beautiful tropical oasis. Stayed here with family (4 adults and 2 children). Kids absolutely loved the pool. it was great - warm and not too deep. Really enjoyed how walk-able the neighborhood was. Lots of things to do in the area: beach, rented kayaks, turtle hospital, aquarium encounter, old 7 mile bridge, Castaways (my son's favorite restaurant), Burdines (beautiful sunset from deck). I'd definitely come back to this house again.
