  • Would like to go back - great location and nice cottage

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: It as almost everything for a wonderful vacation place: so close to the beach, nice house, and beautiful view... We spent our Christmas and New Year week at this location, and we also rent a boat which was directly delivered to the house's dock. Kids enjoyed the time at the beach, at the national marine park which is about 20 minutes of boating. Vicki, the manager is very responsible."

  • Exactly as pictured and great owners to deal with!

    "We had a lovely Christmas vacation at Janet and Bob's condo in Marathon and they are very responsive and easy to work with. It was our first VRBO experience and we were a bit apprehensive but it was such a good experience with Janet and Bob as owners, we will definitely use VRBO again. From an ease of transaction perspective, it could not have been easier and they communicated regularly and quickly with us. The condo is exactly as it appears in the pictures. If you are wanting the most up to date décor, this probably isn't the place for you. However if you want large, comfortable, very well appointed with many extras you wouldn't have in a hotel (all cooking supplies your could ever need, beach towels, fishing gear, beach chairs, etc.), steps to either the ocean or pool, a wonderful dock to fish from, awesome wildlife, a central location, and clean and neat accommodations- then this is the place for you! As you can tell- I'll take Happiness Is. There are huge and expansive balconies on both levels to view the ocean. There is a large and very comfortable living room. Kitchen is small but has a big dining table easily seating 6. Kitchen may be small but they have every cooking utensil you could possibly need- we wanted for nothing. As an added bonus, there is a full size newer washer and dryer- very handy. Also on the first level is a 1/2 bath. Upstairs contains 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths. The master is huge with great views. It's a bit of a strange layout- there is an on suite bath however no door to separate from the bedroom so might be odd if you need a lot of privacy. Bath is big as well as the large closet. The owners are quite generous and happy for you to use their beach towels, chairs, and fishing supplies and it's all very nice. My other caution is the master BR mattress. It tends toward the very soft so could be uncomfortable if you need/prefer firm. The 2nd BR has 2 full size beds (may be queens) and also plenty of space. 2nd full bath is also a good size. There are 3 large flat screen TV's (living room and both bedrooms) as well as WIFI. I cannot think of 1 single thing that we needed that was not already in the condo. Fun things to do: Dolphins + in Key Largo, Seaplane excursion to the Dry Tortugas park, deep sea fishing and fishing off the dock (we caught 2 sm hammerhead sharks!), Mangrove Mammas, Castaways, Hemmingway house in Key West, renting bikes and kayaks. I would absolutely recommend Happiness Is!"

  • 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!!"

  • Excellent Lobster Trip 2016

    "What a beautiful duplex that comfortably accommodated our party of 10 for lobster mini season. The location is extremely convenient and so easy to access the water without having to deal with chaos of Vaca cut. The duplex easily accommodated our 28 foot boot for the week, with no issues to dock our boat. The houses are divided so provided privacy to all guests. We all enjoyed meeting for coffee in the morning or cocktails in the evening under the house that provided a great entertaining space. There were ample amount of towels and linens. The kitchens were comfortably stocked and provided everything we needed and more. We made breakfast in the house and lots of appetizers. While we had 10 adults, this would also be a good unit to use with older kids. We had easy access by car to several of our favorite restaurants in town and just a short drive for day adventure to Key West. The owners were extremely responsive while booking, before our reservation began and even while we were enjoying our vacation. We had an absolute great time, and definitely would love to stay here again."
