Imagine gazing across a large, sparkling swimming pool to see a natural in-ground aquarium... big enough to swim in, and filled with tropical fish.

Ten minutes north of Marathon, and only 15 minutes drive from Islamorada, Grassy Key is a sleepy little village of waterfront home on large estate properties, very private and quiet, far from the seasonal madness.

                                                  Perfect Family Florida Keys Vacation

                                                  Jill s.

                                                  Spent Spring Break at Mantee Bay and it was the perfect setting for our family vacation. The property is beautiful and has everything you need and more. The house sits on three acres and has tennis courts, huge outdoor fish pond, a pool, dock and unbelievable views of the Gulf of Mexico which provided the most amazing nightly sunsets.

                                                  The house itself is large and had three master suites all with their own bathrooms and all in their own wings to provide privacy. There was also a kids wing which had two bedrooms that shared a common bath. All the bedrooms except one had new TVs.

                                                  There was also a large flatscreen in the great room off the kitchen and another tv in an additional family room. The house was well stocked with everything you would need for vacation. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you would ever need. There were three trash cans, two dishwashers and three refrigerators throughout the house. There was also plenty of bath towels, beach towels, pool toys, fishing rods and a Weber Grill that were available to us.

                                                  Doug and Donna were the property managers and were there to provide an initial tour of the property and also available for immediate assistance during our stay. They only live a short distance away from the property which is a huge plus!!!!

                                                  We would definitely rent this property again. It’s a beautiful property with everything you need right onsite. We rarely left the house and enjoyed everything the property offered. We would definitely rent Mantee Bay again!

                                                  Excellent property with even better views

                                                  John W.

                                                  This was our second year staying at Manatee Bay and the house is excellent. The sunset views are spectacular every evening. The kids loved the pool and pond and the dock is good for most any size boat. The Vaca Cut is a few miles from the house for ocean access for fishing. All in all, this is a great property for a family vacation.

                                                  A wonderful vacation and great location!

                                                  Janet M.

                                                  We had a wonderful week at Manatee Bay. Nine adults and two children shared this beautiful five-bedroom home. The rooms were spread out enough that everyone felt they had adequate privacy when they wanted it. The master bedrooms were spacious and the beds were comfortable. The kitchen was incredibly well-stocked with dishes, glasses, silverware and pots and pans. The only issue that we had the entire week was that a few things in the kitchen were not working, the most inconvenient being the microwave. We notified Donna and she said that she was having those things taken care of a.s.a.p. The kitchen could use a little TLC but she also said that it was due to be replaced this coming winter. The pool was beautiful as was the property. It was very hot the week we were there so the basketball court was used only once and the tennis court not at all. The view over the water was stunning, especially the sunsets which were like nothing I've ever seen. Everyone had a great time. I would definitely recommend this property.

                                                  Great vacation escape

                                                  James D.

                                                  Our stay at Manatee Bay was everything we wanted it to be. The house is wonderful and the amenities such as the dock and pool as well as the gigantic fish pond made our grandkids enjoy their time away as much as the adults. Twelve of us fit easily and comfortably. The grandkids especially liked looking at and swimming with the lobsters and huge fish in the pond. Lots of fishing happened on the pier and many were caught right off the dock. Thanks Donna (the manager) and Morton Properties for a wonderful vacation.

                                                  What a place!!!!!!

                                                  Alison M.

                                                  Great space and the back yard is unreal!!!! The kitchen is amazing and the layout of the house allows for a large family to have plenty of room!!! We loved this house!

                                                  Has to be one of the best waterfront properties in the Keys!

                                                  April G.

                                                  The house is perfect for multiple families - three master suites and 2 rooms well suited for children. The house is very clean and the landscaping is beautiful. It is about a 15 minute drive for groceries, restaurants, etc. We liked the remote, quiet location. We rented a boat and had some trouble docking due to the set-up but enjoyed fishing off the dock.
