Wonderful Lifelong Memories!!

This was the 12th year in a row, that our family has enjoyed this magical place. Jim and Deborah have created an oasis in an oasis and their efforts have given us a one of a kind destination to go relax, explore and experience the natural beauty of the island and area, and have irreplaceable family time.
We all voted that this year was the best trip we have ever had. The island and house looked so beautiful. Everything had really grown and most of it was blooming. As usual, the place was spotless clean and everything in perfect working condition, thanks to the caretakers Jeff and Katy. It is always a pleasure visiting with them and they are always available for questions or assistance if needed.
We boated, fished, sailed, wake boarded, swam, snorkeled, and just stayed as busy as we wanted. We all read, took a nap or two in the hammocks on the beach, and cooked some fabulous meals. We only went into Marathon to eat dinner one evening the whole week. We just thoroughly enjoyed cooking and visiting in the awesome outdoor cooking and eating area at the island. It is definitely a room with a view...fireflies included!!
After dinner one evening we were out on the dock after dark just visiting and we heard a manatee. It was out in the water past the dock. We went and turned on the hose water at the dock and just sprayed it into the sea to make noise. Sure enough he came swimming up. He laid on his back and we fed him water for almost 1/2 hour!! What a wonderful experience.
We are already looking forward to our time at Seabird next year. We wish that everyone could see and experience such a great place. It is truly a unique and perfect island getaway.
