Serenity Bay is a great description of the property. View was great, sunsets were memorable, pool and landscaping were first class, kitchen was well stocked with high quality cookware and the provided towels were also quality.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Great location right on beach. Close to Marathon. Property clean well maintained. Property manager Guy was great. Any issues we had were taken care of. This was a family vacation with our adult children and 1 grandchild. We went to Key West for 1 day and went to Dolphin Research center for few hours. Both very nice. Rest of the time enjoyed just stayimg at the house enjoying pool and hot tub and playing cards.

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

We are very lucky to have found this rental. It checked all of our boxes and boy it did not disappoint. We were greeted at check in and given a quick tour with instructions. From that point, I don't think we ever saw another person while at the house. We had 5 adults and two teenagers. Everyone has plenty of space. Most days were spent by the pool and ocean. We are looking to reserve this house again for next year. Great location too!

Thanksgiving getaway

  • 5 of 5

There were 4 adults and 2 children ranging in Agee from 2 to 65. We cooked Thaksgiving dinner in the house. Great kitchen for that. Nice open layout. Stunning view. Most beautiful pool I've ever seen. Went to the aquarium and Key West but just loved relaxing at the property and enjoying each other's company. The 2yr old loved playing in the sand and the 13yr old loved the volleyball. Roasted marshmallows over the fire pit one night. All the adults loved the pool's hot tub. We had a great time.
