    "Property was just as advertised, but no words could describe the veiw! Couple of fixtures in house should be updated but that wouldn't stop us from visiting again!"

  • Fantastic

    "My husband and I usually rent a beachfront condo in Florida and wanted to experience the Keys try something different and found this cute cottage and took a chance rented it for a week. No regrets we just loved it. Much to our surprise we caught a lot of different species of fish right off the dock like sand shark grunters snappers and even a barracuda. We were visited by a school of parrot fish almost everyday and a sea turtle that would pop up her head once in a while.. There's also a beautiful public beach just a few minutes from the cottage in Marathon with free parking. Thank you Randy we will be back for sure!! Denise and Warren from Ottawa Canada."

  • This property's listing title says it all!

    "You don't have to fish to enjoy this gem but it is hard to beat if you do. My wife and I enjoyed a weeks stay with our youngest son, his wife and 18 month old daughter. The views are great, especially from the rooftop porch which offered unparalleled sunset views. Because I planned this trip so late, my wife and I stayed in 3 different homes for a week each. This was by far our favorite. If you need everything to be brand new, and have resort style amenities, this may not be your place. If you are comfortable with having all the necessities and experiencing a taste of what the Keys have been about for decades, this would be hard to beat. Conch Key is small and has a working fleet of hardworking fishermen and lobstermen whose activity is wonderful to observe. You can fish from 3 sides of the home in the canal, motor or paddle literally feet to the flats of Florida Bay (with the Gulf just beyond), or boat "just around the corner" under the bridge (Long Key Viaduct) and be in the Atlantic Ocean. You can even fish safely from the fishing/biking/walking structure that runs parallel to the road on the bridge right across the street from the entrance to Conch Key. The property is gated and has plenty of parking. The inside of the home is comfortable and has all the necessities including a well stocked kitchen. But with so many great places to sit outdoors, we spent most of our non-fishing (or other off site activity) time just enjoying the wonderful weather and sights on the property: There are two large and comfortable covered porches, the aforementioned roof deck, a couple chairs in a hidden garden, and the expansive dock area always has little surprises to view in the water (lobster, Parrot fish, Angel fish, a myriad of other small fish, Barracuda, Conchs, the occasional Manatee, and other sea life). At night the Hermit crabs may come out in force so watch your step -- you don't want to crush the little critter's shell homes! I am probably forgetting several other positives I should mention but suffice it to say, you will be comfortable, have a sense of security, and enjoy a wonderful environment. Though I didn't have the opportunity to speak with Frank Harding, his wife (the other owner) Catherine is a gem -- sweet, informative, and truly concerned with your enjoyment. We have traveled to the Keys from Woodstock, Georgia many times over the past 15 years. I can't remember enjoying a property more and I know we haven't experienced a better host. Thanks folks!"

  • Great peaceful place and location.

    "We were so happy to find this quiet and clean retreat right on the gorgeous aqua water. We ventured in the bay with the kayaks they provided. Explored the Keys in each direction. Stewart and Kate were delightful hosts and advisors. Highly recommend you check out this paradise destination!"
