About Mary Dereski
The first time down in the Keys we fell in love with the relaxed and lay-back feeling it gave us. You can find as little or as much as you would like to do when staying in your vacation condo. The resort pool and small beach area will supply the relaxation, and only minutes away you can find the adventure. Our resort also offers kayaks and paddle boards, explore the Ocean and all its wondering only steps away. Fishing, snorkeling and diving are only a few minute drive away. You can even swim with the dolphins! Everything you ever dreamt of is right at your finger tips.
Mary Dereski purchased this Condo in 2003

Great condo. Perfect location!
We had a great stay in Mary's condo. I had never stayed in the upper Keys before, and I was very impressed with the amount of things to do in and around Tavernier. We enjoyed visiting the two nearby breweries: Florida Keys Brewing Co and Islamorada Beer Company. We bought quality locally made art at Old Road Gallery. We visited a couple nearby state parks. And we drove to Key West one day—a very doable drive. The condo is comfortable and very clean. Both bathrooms and the kitchen have been remodeled and are lovely. The people we met in the complex were wonderfully friendly. Mary provided a helpful list of recommendations for restaurants and things to do in the area. Overall, I can highly recommend the condo, the area, and the host!
Updated condo with a stunning view!
My husband and I and another couple stayed here for about a week during our spring break and had an amazing time! When we arrived the condo was absolutely spotless and completely updated with quality furniture and appliances as well as modern granite and tile!
We found ourselves at the new pool with a bar and concessions at least once every day. There were plenty of chairs for laying out as well as tables with umbrellas. The rum runners from the pool bar were our favorite!
The owners made our stay easy and the condo had everything we needed including a fully equipped kitchen for when we stayed in for meals. The two bedrooms and two full bathrooms made our stay perfect for four people!
There is so much to do in the area and too many incredible restaurants to choose from. Mary and Bill helped us out with stellar recommendations of places to visit.
We have stayed here many times and are already discussing our next trip down. We highly recommend this rental for anyone who is looking for a relaxing tropical vacation!
Strongly recommend! Very clean, great location!
Fantastic condo! Very clean and recently updated! Really comfortable bed and pillows. Great shower. Fantastic location that was close to excellent restaurants and a large pool on site. We stayed here for 6 days and everything was perfect. I would strongly recommend this property!!!
Labor Day weekend

Looking forward to staying here again.

Amazing Place to stay
We had a great time staying here. The condo is beautiful and the owners are wonderful. So much to do. The pool area was great, the kids enjoyed time playing there.
Key west was about a 2 hour drive , so it was a perfect day trip for here.
We will be back for sure . Thank you for sharing your condo with us :-)
So glad you had a great time. Looking forward to having you back soon!
The condo was very nice. Nicely upgraded! Would definitely recommend this unit to my friends.
We were disappointed with the beach..pool was so hot.... I realize the sun heats it up but would be nice to figure out a way to add cold water each day.... just wasn't as refreshing as we would have liked.
On a positive note, the property was beautiful! Everyone who worked there was friendly!
Hello Jan, glad the resort staff was friendly and you enjoyed our newly upgraded vacation condo and the beautiful resort grounds.
