  • 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 !!"

  • Perfect get away!

    "Our family of 4 just stayed at this wonderful home! The owners were wonderful to work with and the home is just as it 's described. We walked to the beach, the cooler and beach cart they provided were awesome! It made all the difference in us not having to pack and unpack each day. The house was very clean and it had everything we needed, even nightlights! The bathrooms are well updated. The porch and fans were relaxing. I do wish we would have rented kayaks or paddle boards to explore the canals but with 2- 5 year olds, we just went to the beach daily. We did drive to Key West one day b/c it was supposed to rain in Marathon. We did try to rent a boat but they weren't operating due to the hurricane on the other side. We saw lots of life around the house including 3 manatees and jelly fish. We snorkeled all around the little rocky coves that are at Sombrero Beach. We went to the fish markets and grocery and ate most of our meals at the house. It was all great! Thanks David and Grace (and Kate) for allowing us to use your beautiful home!"

  • Great Place to Rest and Relax

    "The condo is just as it is advertised in VRBO. The kitchen is fully stocked for cooking, which my wife did quite a few times during our stay there. You will have to buy spices, butter, and anything else you need to season your food, but as far as dishes go, the place has everything. The view is beautiful, and I spent quite a bit of time on the screened in patio overlooking the pool and the ocean. The complex is in a very quiet area of Marathon, and we enjoyed going out at night for walks. You will need a car to reach everything, but a ten minute drive gets you to grocery stores, places to eat, and some neat activities (turtle hospital, Sombrero Beach). You are also strategically placed to enjoy both Key West and Key Largo. We especially loved driving to Key West as we got to drive over the 7 mile bridge. The water on both sides of the span was amazing. The beds were comfortable, I don't think I have slept that soundly or that long for quite a while. Our kids like sleeping on the rollaway bed that was provided, and we had plenty of linens to choose from. The place was really clean and everything worked well. The caretaker was a really nice guy and would always ask us how we were doing and ask us if there was anything else we needed. We had a great time swimming in the heated pool, and there were a few times we stayed in for a couple of hours at a time. My kids (ages 7 and 8) had a blast and my wife and I were able to relax. We would definitely recommend the place to other families, couples, etc. It is definitely not a luxury condo, but the value of the place was unbeatable and it has everything you need. Chris, the owner, was always prompt with emails and we had no trouble getting into the place the night we arrived. If you have a chance, go."
