  • We will be back!!

    "This was the second time renting from American Caribbean. It is so much easier when you deal with a professional manager in town. I used to deal with absentee owners and one time he gave us the wrong access code to get in the house. We couldn’t reach him for hours. We were sitting around waiting (with a week’s worth of groceries) for his call. This house POO is right across the street from a beautiful big beach. It was nice to go to the beach walk back across the street and go in your own in ground pool. We fished off the private dock behind the house and caught small barracudas. We would have a manatee come up by us every day. The inside of the house was very clean and comfortable. A good full working kitchen. The outside deck wraps around the house which is nice. You can sit outside and move around to stay in the sun or move around to stay out of the sun. The front porch looks out onto the beach. Even being by the beach it is still quiet and peaceful. There is a big dining room table inside and two separate areas to eat outside on the deck. One is a screen porch. We will be back!!"

  • 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!"

    "Just got home after a week at this property. The house and grounds were perfect for our group of six and one boat although a second boat would be no problem. Fishing, snorkeling, kayaking in your back yard as well as an open water view of the Gulf, whats not to like! The on property ramp is a great plus and the sunsets from the porch are amazing. Plenty of parking on a quiet street, centrally located in Marathon. From my first Email to the owners to receipt of my security deposit the process was without issue. Will be looking to rent this property again."

  • Relaxing waterfront - clean and comfortable

    "A perfect home for our group: five adults and four teens. The teens wanted to share a bedroom and the bunk beds were perfect. The two living rooms allowed everyone to spread out to talk or read while others watched TV; yet all nine fit in the living room comfortably together. Plenty of outdoor seating, although most of us preferred to sit on the wall near the water. Outdoor grilling was our preferred cooking method. The indoor pool was wonderful. Bathrooms are updated and clean. Enjoyed the walk-in rain shower. The "teen" bathroom was perfect -- double sinks in one area and a pocket door to separate the toilet/shower area -- allowed the teens to get ready together. The extra refrigerator in the garage came in handy. Nice washer/dryers. The house is in a great location - close to Turtle Hospital, Dolphin Research Center, Boondocks, Sombrero Beach, Bahia Honda Beach and approx. 1 hour from Key West. The neighborhood is nice for a jog and long walks. We had one glitch upon arrival which Jackie quickly took care of; also the sliding glass doors to get in to and out of the house were a bit challenging (humidity?) but that didn't stop us! Thanks Tudor and Jim, you were fantastic to work with. We appreciate your quick response to our inquiries/emails. The views are breathtaking; the sunsets across the water were wonderful; and the house is beautiful. Highly recommend this oasis; close to everything yet away from it all!"
