Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything you could dream of in a vacation home. The pool is fantastic...the kids loved it. The kitchen is great and well stocked. The showers and bedrooms really nice! The location was perfect! Lobsters congregate under the dock and we saw an angel fish while snorkeling in the canal. Paradise Found!

Very unique home in the heart of Marathon. Great pool!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our vacation at Yellowtail Bungalow. The house has a great layout - it is decorated with incredible murals. The kitchen has more cabinet space than you could possibly need. Top of the line washer and dryer for those soggy towels and fishy clothes. Ample parking for our 3 trucks and boat trailer. The pool has a very large shallow end which is great for young kids to play in. I try to avoid getting too much sun, so the grotto was a perfect place to float and relax with my book and beverage. Grocery store is just a few minutes away as are great restaurants. The owner is incredibly responsive and easy to work with.

Serene tropical paradise with a true feel of home accessible to everything the keys has to offer.

  • 5 of 5

If you think it looks great in pictures, book it; because it is even more beautiful in can't do justice to the scenery, comfort, and wow factor you experience. The location in the middle of the keys is perfect for going to anything from Key Largo to Key West, while having the feel of being away from everything. To wake up, be able to come home each day after going out, and to end the night in this extremely clean, comfortable, and absolutely charming, stunning, private resort is the perfect calm for vacation in the relaxing keys lifestyle. The pool and hot tub are completely superior to what you see online, extemely well done. It was absolutely perfect for two adults and two 16 year old girls. It would be awesome for many different situations from romance for two to anyone group up age 1-100+. A family with 4 kids or 4 adults and two kids could easily enjoy this home. Our girls walked in and went oh my god, and when they saw the backyard with the pool they were completely wowed. The hardest part was getting them to ever want to leave the house during our stay, but that's a great problem to have. The lookout point overseeing the Gulf and the dock so close to open water is really cool. The inside of the home is very well appointed. The Master shower is amazing, and the other bedrooms and bathrooms are very nice. We wanted for nothing, the home had everything you needed to truly feel that you were at home while being on vacation. I have stayed in a lot of beautiful places in the keys, including The Moorings Village, Little Palm Island, Cheeca Spa, Hawks Cay...this home was better than all of them; to the point I will not stay in a resort again with options like this available. If you are debating whether to stay here or not as I did, book it with confidence and enjoy a relaxing, absolutely beautiful tropical oasis. We obviously loved it. A rare perfect 10.
