Great home, great yard, great dock, great location.

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks at this home and have nothing to complain about.

Excellent home, very clean, great air conditioning. Everything was perfect.

Excellent location for boating. A huge protected dock and out into open water in only two minutes.

Huge yard to hold two trailers, 5 vehicles and allow two dogs to run.

Will return next year.

Perfect for fishing trip!

  • 5 of 5

The property is centrally located and easy to be self sufficient without a car. The home was very clean and had everything needed for a week of fishing. Dock and tiki hut was very nice and convenient, cleaning station and freezer was a great bonus. We plan on staying here again. Owner/Manager was very responsive and seamless from booking to refund of deposit.

Christmas Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved this location for our holiday. The yard being fenced in was awesome for our dogs & fun for everyone to enjoy. The house was very spacious so everyone could spread out & there was enough room to gather for meals and games. The appliances in the kitchen were new & easy to use & enjoy. We loved playing pool & used the kayaks too. The dock was huge for the boat we rented & we appreciated the freezer out there’s for our bait & ice. We caught tons of fish & the cleaning station was very convenient. We would love to come again

The property was well maintained and the owners were responsive when we ran into AC problems

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 8 adults and 3 boats on vacation for Lobster mini season. We were assured that there was more than enough dock space to accommodate our boats and plenty of parking for vehicles. We were pleasantly surprised at how large the yard was and loved that the property was at the of the street which meant we had a short trip to the Gulf. We arrived Saturday, launched boats, did our grocery shopping, had dinner at Herbie's and proceeded to turn in for the night. Sometime in the middle of night the AC stopped cooling so we woke up Sunday morning to 84 degrees. We called the owner who immediately directed us on what company to call. It took 3 trips on Sunday, 3 trips on Monday and finally got fixed on Tuesday. We were not without air the entire time but more an intermittent problem and definitely inconvenient. The AC company worked diligently to solve the issue and the owner was very responsive to us. Absolutely loved the property, tiki bar, and house. We never felt crowded as the property was so large that we were able to spread out. Our party of 8 would definitely recommend this property and would not hesitate to rent again.

Loved our vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this house. It was perfect for 6 people and one dog! The location was great, close to everything we like to do down there. Herbies, just down the street was a really nice little find. Great food and the best Key Lime Pie in Marathon! Oh, and we saw 6 or 7 Manatees while kayaking not far from the dock! Thanks, Donna.
