  • 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."

  • A true 5-star experience

    "We tend to be wary when there are more pictures of the outdoors than the indoors but Jerry's little flats in paradise break a lot of our standard rules. We are birders and naturalists and some of our most exciting sightings were 10 feet from where we were having tea. The apartment is comfortable, clean and well-appointed but you wont be spending much time indoors. The host is unusually generous with savvy advice about local restaurants, fishing, parks, pests, & weather. He knows his territory. He is even more generous with unexpected amenities like kayaks, snorkeling/fishing gear, a park pass, bicycles, & lanterns. All this extra gear is high quality and in good repair. The value of these amenities make this property an unexpected bargain. The claims about the natural diversity literally at your door are not exaggerated. If you love nature you may never leave the patio. In fact there's a hammock out there if you can't tear yourself away. Doing business with the host was trouble-free. Layton is tiny and quiet but there's a destination Italian restaurant (Acquapazza) just a couple of blocks away. The indoors is nothing fancy but it was attractive, practical, & sturdy. The bathroom was very clean and the shower is a standout. The kitchen is a little dark but perfectly serviceable. We got a chuckle out of the whimsical coffee tables. Jerry built this place for fun in a stunningly beautiful place and it delivers, big time. Rent it and get your feet wet! Highest recommendation!"

  • EXCELLENT VACATION!!

    "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."

  • Better than anything you can read about !

    "This place is like a dream come true. It is sheer magic. Stayed for 1 week. Rented a boat also. Can i tell you that this is the nicest place i have ever stayed in the Keys. It was perfect. Clean, quiet and tropical. Set up for everything you could want in the Keys. Amazing ! I will be back here soon. We are picky. We enjoy nice things. when you walk into the front door you will momentarily have your breath taken away. Pour a drink before you unpack and go sit in the hammock and free your mind.......I promise this will live up to the billing."
