  • 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!"

  • Great Time at Villa Pamela

    "The Keys are great and Villa Pamela in Marathon is a great place to have a vacation. The House was modern and comfortable with great views of the Gulf . It is a quiet friendly neighborhood and the house is very private. The pool and hot tub added to the other amenities and the house had everything we needed. We'll be back."

  • 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!"

  • Great House ...in a perfect spot.

    "We have rented many houses in the keys, some were as advertised , some not so much. This house was exactly what it said it was, comfortable not pretentious, more adequately furnished and supplied than most. It pretty much was what we would own if we had a house in the keys. The screened downstairs was fabulous. We had some good times there, bar, tv and an incredible view. The dock was perfect for fishing, we caught many kinds of fish, and saw dolphins , manatees and rays. We have stayed at most keys between KW and Islamorada, we find Marathon to be THE BEST location of all. Marathon has everything you want, including great restaurants such as: Frank's Grill, some of the best italian I have ever had, King's Seafood , right up the street, great fresh seafood and fabulous Cuban sandwiches. For a great sunset, Sunset Bar and Grill at the bottom of the bridge. If you don't feel like driving far, Nowhere Pub is truly great food.Breakfast: Stout's and Stuffed Pig. If Greek is your thing, Meditarrane on US1 was a real find. However for us the BEST restaurant in the Keys is Square Grouper in Ramrod, a little pricey but you will remember the meal way longer than the check. Finally , Sandy is a great owner, supernice and easy to deal with. One last thing, as we were blessed with good weather most of our stay, we came to appreciate the comfortable beds and great AC at the end of our day. As soon as our vacation plans plans clear for 2016, we will be back to this great house and location."
