  • Two weeks in paradise!

    "Despite this being a rental, we truly were made to feel like guests of the owners, Jose and Marcia, with every little need taken care of. The home is tastefully decorated, with a spectacular shower in the upstairs bathroom. The Executive Bay Club is a gated community, which gives a feeling of security. The other residents are friendly and helpful and it is only a short walk to the pool and beach, as well as Founders' Park, with their walking/jogging paths, beach, and pool. The location is ideal, just a short drive to the supermarket and great restaurants. We really felt like we could just stay at this location, but did venture out most days to explore the Keys. We went to Bahia Honda Beach twice, about an hour away. This is a state park, with wonderful beaches on both the bay and ocean side. There is an admission fee charged, but well worth it for facilities available. We also discovered a gem of a beach, Sombrero Beach in Marathon, just a little closer than Bahia Honda. This beach was not as large, but was nicely maintained, with rest rooms, picnic tables, and a playground, and it was free. A full day was needed for our excursion to Key West, but well worth the trip. Be sure to visit the Butterfly Gardens and Hemingway House. We did check the schedule of cruise ships entering the port and chose a day when only one was coming in. There were also some good attractions in the area for days when you are tired of the beach. Check out the wild bird sanctuary and the diving museum, each only a short drive away. There are some really good restaurants in the area, but we soon settled on two favorites, Harriet's and Bob's Bunz, for breakfasts. Each of these has its own special pastry, the first wonderful muffins and the latter tasty large cinnamon buns. For dinner, our hands down favorite was Marker 88. We ate there several times and were never disappointed. Of course, we also did a good deal of cooking at home, both on the grill and the full-sized smooth top range. The dining table could easily seat a crowd, but we preferred eating on the semi-secluded patio whenever possible. Like all of the townhouses in the area, this unit does have a spiral staircase. Though this looks intimidating at first, we soon adapted to going up and down quickly, so if you are physically able to climb stairs, this should not be an impediment. One word of advice: unpack and store your suitcase downstairs. All in all, this was a wonderful rental at a good price."

  • Does not get any better

    "we have spent many vacations in the Keys: from Islamorada to Key West. Happy Tarpon has it all! The photos don't show the whole experience. Perfect accomodations, pristine, with pool, boat dock and close to all Islamorada points of interest. Friendly, helpful owners made our stay even better. Don't pass this up>"

  • Great rental home!

    "Mercy is great to work with, her communication is great and she is kind. It's easy to see that she and her family have put a lot of time and effort into making their Keys home warm and welcoming for their guests. This house had everything we needed, plus more. The beds were clean, comfortable, and spacious. We really enjoyed the back yard. The kids loved the pool, the hot tub was nice, there was plenty of seating and plenty of ways to relax and have fun, all without leaving the back yard. We especially enjoyed watching the iguanas, fish, jelly fish, and especially the manatee in the canal. My children all agreed this was the best place we have ever rented. The house isn't huge, but we never felt cramped. I highly recommend this place to anyone who wants a peaceful keys vacation."

  • House Beautiful, Very Peaceful

    "We had a nice relaxing time staying here in the Marlin Beach House. I loved that the canal was behind the house, I sat there every morning drinking my coffee. No wonder they say no swimming in the canal, ( we seen a sting ray and a barracuda) we were waiting for the Manatee's to visit but no luck. The beach was perfect and so beautiful, and it is nice since it is private, no overcrowding. Islamorada key Is the best key to stay in my opinion. We had a bit of a problem with the air conditioning, John was right on top of that and had it fixed the next morning. House was well stocked and maintained with all things needed. Deposit was returned within 2 weeks after we left. The food is to die for in Islamorada, a bit expensive but it is well worth it. I would highly recommend Morada bay beach club, such a wonderful atmosphere and the food makes your taste buds melt with joy. The keys are a nice place to see and experience in a lifetime, but if you want to do sightseeing or any family activities besides fishing, snorkeling and eating there, Is not much to do here. But if you want to be a beach bum and see the wondrous teal blue waters then this is the place to go. Thank you for the wonderful stay."
