  • 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 !!"

  • Island Home Away From Home!

    "My family of 8 adults stayed here for a week and had a great time! The house really did feel like home, very clean and comfortable and lots of areas for our group to relax together. Every morning, we enjoyed the view while drinking coffee on the porch. We cooked many great meals which saved money and made the experience even more special. We kayaked, fished and enjoyed the pool, all without spending an extra dime. The caretakers were prompt, friendly, and flexible. The house was the perfect location for a day trip to Key West, and a trip to Largo. We honestly couldn't do all the things we wanted to for lack of time, not convenience! Only complaints I heard from our group was the firmness of the matresses- although thats more a matter of preference. It was a vacation of a lifetime and we were really happy to have spent it at Boot Key Retreat!"

  • 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!!"

  • 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!"
