Had a blast, very good location. Took Kayak out right off the beach and hooked a 30 lbs permit! Looking forward to staying here again next year, if not sooner!

Week in Marathon

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful week in the Keys. The apartment was as advertised, exceptionally clean and right on the beach. It's location is ideal, roughly centered in the Keys. We were surprised to find it in such good shape after the hurricane this past fall. Considerable work and effort were clearly expended to restore the property. There is a little more to do, and I expect over the next few months this will be accomplished. We hope to return next year.

We were very disappointed. We were assured by the owner that the beach had been restored to "pre-storm beauty". Not. We picked up over 100 shards of broken glass. I have pictures of my collection. There was no walking barefoot in the sand. The description also described tying up your boat across the road at a launch site. The site is a mile away and has been closed since 2009. The condo is right on the highway with a speed limit of 55. Heavy traffic and terrible noise. We ended up stuffing pillows between the window and the wooden shade to dampen the noise and even then had to have a fan running to add some white noise to the room. Not happy campers.

Owner's Response: Hi Chuck, We are sorry that you were not happy with your stay. Unfortunately the keys is not for everyone. Our property had bee. Completely renovated from a major hurricane declared as a national disaster by the president of the United States. We rushed to get our units ready in time for our reserveddates so as not to have to turn anyone away. Our beach is beautiful and all guests that have stayed in either of our apartments since your stay have loved it here. In the 3 years we have been renting our apartments we have had 29 reviews on one apartment and 12 on the newer unit that you stayed in. I ha e not had a single complaint about noise from the road except for yours and of the 41 reviews, ALL have us 4-5 stars except for 4 including you. Like I said, the middle keys is a very unique paradise and not for everyone. Sincerely, Andy and Maria

beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful place. We were lucky enough to have it all to ourselves. It was clean quiet and the beach was amazing. It is convenient to key west for a day of site seeing and we went to Pips for a sunset snorkel. Will definitely return
