  • Perfect property for large gathering/vacation!!

    "7 of us gathered to celebrate 2 landmark birthdays, and a family reunion. This was, clearly, the perfect ocean side residence. Main floor has an open construction, allowing people to flow in/out, sit on the deck and still converse. BBQ grill for the fresh fish we bought was used several times. Separate bedrooms and bath's allowed privacy when needed. Top of the building allowed private sunbathing. Photo-ops with the neighbor who daily brought in and cleaned his fresh catch of the day. Ibis, cranes, and pelicans gathered, much like the family pets, awaiting the remnants of the catch. A manatee swam into the channel, posing for pics, allowing a brief touch as he munched the algae on the ropes holding the boats. Central location on the keys allowed up and down exploration of the other keys, including Key West. Ample parking, free!! The property was very clean, well maintained. Having an elevator was very necessary as one of us was 87 y/o, and had difficulty ascending the circular inside stairs. More than that, was using it to move luggage, groceries, etc. The owner kept very close contact with us before, during and after our stay, to be sure all contractual items were addressed. Yes, this was the perfect location. Would repeat in a heartbeat!!"

  • Great Place

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in #9. Description is completely accurate. It's a very good value for price (for the Keys). Very easy check-in process--no need to negotiate an exact time for check-in or out. The photos make the unit and grounds look a little frumpy but actually they are cute and lovely. The owner really puts a lot of effort into making the yard and interior very attractive, highly functional and comfortable. Everything was immaculately clean. Thank you, Housekeeper! Strong air conditioning. Plenty of supplies. I cooked meals in the kitchen easily. Probably for health reasons, no food was left in the unit for us to use. The wifi worked fairly well--good on my laptop, so-so on my phone--better on the porch where the router is located. We aren't familiar with using satellite TV but got the hang of it. Unless I'm missing something, you need to wait quite a while for channel information to load. The beds are firm and comfortable; however, a tall or large person might find them too small. There are trailers and other residences quite near the unit, but there weren't many other residents around (even in December) and it was perfectly quiet and private. The no-see-ums were pretty bad in the yard. Skin-so-soft repellent worked better than Off. I saw online that some people recommend using various essential oils as repellant, so you may want to investigate that in advance. I insisted in sitting in the lovely yard despite the bugs and came home with tons of bites. However, it depends on the person--the bugs didn't bother my husband at all. I know no-see-ums are a problem in Florida and many parts of the country, so you'll find them many places. The walk to the jetty and the jetty itself were great--very natural with hardly a man-made structure in sight. Mangroves. Beautiful. Lots of birds and sea creatures. It was often breezy/windy at the jetty which kept the bugs away. The area is nice--north side of Marathon. There are things to do in the area (plenty of stores and restaurants too) and you can drive to Key West in 90 minutes or so. In conclusion, if you want to spend a lot of time outside & are susceptible to bug bites or if you wouldn't be comfortable on a twin bed, this might not be the best place for you. However, if these things wouldn't be issues for you, unit 9 is an absolutely perfect place for an affordable Keys vacation. Highly recommended!"

  • Thanksgiving getaway

    "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."

  • Quaint cottage and scenic landscape

    "My stay was nothing short of wonderful. The rental was all that my spouse and I needed for a getaway. The friendly owners gave us all the tools we needed for a successful vacation. We would definitely come back."
