Beautiful and Clean!

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully maintained home reflects the spirit of the wonderful owners. We were personally greeted by the owners upon our arrival and given a tour of the home. The home is even more beautiful than the pictures on VRBO. The furniture is lovely! It was evident that the owners have taken a lot of personal pride in their property. The neighborhood is lovely; the canal is beautiful. We enjoyed sitting by the water on many evenings. When I return to the Keys, this home will be my absolute first choice. I almost forgot to mention the lovely basket of treats waiting for us on the kitchen counter. I would recommend this home for your vacation!! What a great value for your money!!

A great rental!

  • 5 of 5

Our group really enjoyed our stay at Marianela's Starfish House in mid-September. We were there for our 18th annual lobstering trip. The unit had everything we needed and more. It was really nice to have a welcome basket and welcome card when we arrived. I've rented many VRBO rentals, but this one was one of the best with everything we needed to get started, from paper products to coffee. Since our group are all unrelated males it was great to have a comfortable bedroom for each of us. The location is also wonderful with a short boat ride out to Vaca Cut and gulf or ocean access. Hated to leave, but will definitely be back for number 19!

Good times!

  • 5 of 5

When arriving to the home we were pleasantly surprised by the large living space when you enter. There was a lovely welcome bag as well. We had a party of 8 and we fit comfortably. Marianela communicated with us on any questions we had prior to our arrival as well as during our stay. The pool and beach were relaxing with great food and drinks flowing (fyi-pool hours 10am-7pm). We biked and also drove the car to the pool, parking wasn't an issue. Docked a 23ft boat with plenty of space with easy access to the Gulf and Atlantic waters (minutes away). Parking at the home was also spacious, we had 2 trucks as well as a boat trailer. This is a home we will be returning to on our next visit.

Thank you again Marianela for sharing you home! We look forward to our next visit.

Ahhh, so nice!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great! House had more than you needed. Very clean and just as described. Great communication with Marinela! Perfect dock for our pontoon boat and plenty of parking. Local place called Nowhere Bar & Grille had awesome food and the best service! Fun karaoke on Friday nights. Enjoyed the house, dock, ocean and bay so much, we never made it to The Cabana Club. Next time! Thank you very much, Pam and Keith :)

Awesome Place

  • 5 of 5

The Starfish House is amazing in so many ways. Easy access to open water if you have a boat, very easy access to the dock/wall, and beautiful views in and around the canals. Another huge perk for this place is the access to Key Colony Beach which is a 60 second drive. The house has lots of updates and has a wide open floor plan with plenty of room. Marianela was so easy to work with, and being in real estate, she really works for her customers and understands what customers desire. I highly recommend this place and we will be back in the future for sure.

Our home away from home

  • 5 of 5

There is nothing better than having a beautiful place to stay with wonderful amenities all within biking or walking distance. Renting a boat that is docked in the back yard is the icing on the cake. All reviews with a 5 star rating could not be more accurate when describing The Starfish House. Just like my last review, we are all ready planning our next trip for the same time next year. Twice a year is not enough, but it will have to do for now.

Owner's Response: Mia, Thank you so much dear. It is a pleasure having you in our home, it truly is. I've said it before, but I'll say it again: you and your family will always be welcomed here, in your home away from home. See you soon! Marianela
