About Owner/Property Manager

Dragonfly Lite is our favorite Caribbean retreat that we can drive too!

Owner/Property Manager purchased this house in 2015

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Marathon

We were able to move in and started living the keys life. In a private setting.

Marathon has so much to offer: Dolphin Research Center, Turtle Hospital, Pigeon Key, Seven Mile Bridge and Crain Point Museum & Nature Trail.

A good selection of restaurants and Sombrero Beach.

Dragonfly Lite was all it said it was and more. My favorite was the pool and the amazing outdoor shower!! The only negative thing was my friend having to sleep on the couch all week because the new twin beds were hard as brick! Other than that, we had a wonderful time!! Thanks to Jerry and Barbie for making our stay great!!

My little family of 4 had a wonderful time at Dragonfly Lite. We absolutely loved the pool, outdoor shower and privacy fence! Beds/bedding are/is very comfortable and kitchen is well equipped! There was even coffee and creamer provided! Decor is very homey and relaxing & landscaping is beautiful. Wifi wasn't great but we didn't care (we went on vacation to unplug). Jerry recommended the sunset Cruise by Lazy Days and we are so happy that we did it. All in all, we rate Dragonfly Lite an A+ and would recommend it to anyone! Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us!

Also, the island iguana's are awesome (we didn't expect that) and we had a few visitors while swimming. Soooo cool!! No need to be afraid, they are way more scared of you.

Most enjoyable!

  • 5 of 5

The Dragonfly Lite was beyond what we could have hoped for. Walking through the gate took our breath away! Barbie was awesome and so sweet. She is the best at what she does! It was so nice to come back to the house every day and the pool was so amazing! Only down side was that grill had a leak in the hose going to the tank and we ran out of gas in mid steak grilling.. I wouldn't worry I'm sure Barbie had it fixed right away. I would recommend this lovely house to everyone... we will be back. Thank you for sharing your home with us! We miss the pool!!! The Hillstrom's from Minnesota!

Best vacation we have had! The house is cozy and the pool area is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The house was so clean and cozy! Everything you would need is there! The yard and pool is so relaxing and the landscaping is beautiful! You can tell the minute you open the gate that the owners take pride and love it! The beachy colors and comfy outdoor furniture will make you not want to leave!! The house is super clean....beds are very comfortable....and the linens are very soft and comfortable! We plan on making this a yearly summer trip and making dragonfly lite our home away from home!

Tropical Oasis

  • 5 of 5

Dragonfly Lite was the perfect place for our family of four to stay for the week. Property manager Barbie met us upon arrival and showed us around, then homeowner Jerry checked in with us later to be sure we were all settled in. It was super clean, nicely decorated, and had lots of little extras that made it just like home. The pool and beautifully landscaped yard were where we spent our time when we weren't sightseeing. We put the grill to good use several nights and even had a nice lunch at Lazy Days restaurant just around the corner. This was our first trip to the keys, but it definitely won't be our last! Thanks again for helping make our vacation relaxing and memorable!
