  • Living the Dream

    "We rented the Million Dollar Baby for a girls getaway. This was the best girls getaway we have ever had! The house is absolutely beautiful with wonderful artistic touches throughout. The view of the Atlantic is breathtaking when you walk through the front door. There were 5 of us and we all fell in love with this house. We did not want to leave! The pool is about 10 ft from the glass sliding doors and the ocean is about 50 ft. Everything you need is there - well stocked kitchen (blender/toaster/coffee maker/dishes/ice maker/dish washer/etc..), grills if you want to grill out, there are three beautiful bathrooms, washer and dryer, patio furniture and lounge chairs, floats and noodles for the pool, TVs in every bedroom and living room, etc... You can fish right off of the dock. You can rent a boat/kayaks/jet skis and they will deliver them to the house. There are two grocery stores, Walgreens drugstores, and a Kmart right down Hwy 1 a few miles away. The heated pool is beautiful. We spent most of our time outside on the patio and in the pool enjoying the ocean view. We saw a manatee and an iguana that we named "Iggy". We did not fish but the next door neighbors were fishing right off of their dock and they caught fish and a small "Nurse" shark. We spent a day at Sombrero Beach which is just a short drive from the house. We also went to Key West. We spent one day there sightseeing and went back another day for the sunset wine cruise on a sailboat. Marathon Key is a really nice area. The residents are really nice and there is a lot to do there. You can go deep sea fishing, diving, rent/ride bikes, sight seeing, etc... There are a lot of good restaurants/bars also. I loved the dolphin bites at the Sunset Grill and the lobster reuben at the Key Fisheries was a slice of heaven. We were all living the dream staying at the Million Dollar Baby and highly recommend renting this home. Renting this home was the best thing we ever did! Thank you Kate for allowing us to stay at your home! I am sure we will be back again!"

  • ANOTHER "AWESOME" VACATION !!

    "Our 4th visit to ISLAND TRADER and we stayed a month this time! A wonderful relaxing vacation. The amazing view is still mesmerizing. We had one day of rain during our stay so, we really enjoyed the pool, the outdoor area and of course the amazing view. The outside is perfect ...a brand new five burner grill and new chairs under the tiki made drinks and dining with the ocean breeze a pleasure. The renovated kitchen with all new appliances is well stocked for all your indoor cooking. The wine fridge is a welcome addition..located near the wet bar in the dining area is very convenient. All the bedrooms have new high end linens and comforter sets giving the house a very updated look. The beds are comfortable and the a/c is cold. The bathrooms have new fluffy white towels and rugs to match. This home is in a very quiet neighborhood like you are on your own private island but, close to everything you need for groceries, fresh seafood, liquor and fabulous restaurants. Jackie and Bill are a delight to work with...only a phone call away. We absolutely love this house and have booked for May 2017...this is our May vacation spot and we are so so so happy to have found it. Stay here and you will be happy too !!"

  • Wonderful vacation spot

    "This is our 3 Rd year staying at this home. It's beautiful and centrally located for convenience. It is safe and secure for my toddler grandsons age 2 and 4! The pool is relaxing and clean. Julio is the nicest man one could meet and he is available to make your stay the best it can be. We had manatee right at the dock for a fresh water break. We saw 6-8 foot tarpon in the canal multiple times. It's an adventure! The beach was awesome with a playground for the children. We just tell Julio to keep the deposits for next year as we continue to enjoy the pleasure of his beautiful home and friendship we have developed. My families memories are made here and will continue because it's s perfect place for families, children, and handicapped. Julio was so sweet to open the first floor bedroom for me because I merely mentioned I was ill just prior to vacation. All to avoid me doing steps. Not many people would go the extra mile. Julio does and it's appreciated. I cannot say anything negative in the three years we rented. Working and looking forward to the fourth! Kathleen, Folsom, Pennsylvania 2016"
