Great Stay in October 2007

We loved the house and the boat docking area. We stayed 7 days and had a blast. The house was clean and well supplied. It was comfortable and the hot tub was fabulous. We enjoyed being able to get on the boat and go. And then come in at night, clean the boat, fish, eat and get ready for more!!

I would recommend this house to anyone who wants a great place to stay, with boat and water on hand.

Nice, clean & very comfortable home. We fished off the dock and caught mangrove & schoolmaster snapper. Crystal clear deep water. We could look over and see tropical fish, snapper, parrot fish. A 5 foot Tarpon come up, rolled and looked at us. Nice dock for our boat and fish cleaning table. Every thing we needed was provided including: extra pillows, towels, soaps/detergents. I was impressed with a new roll of paper towels on the roller and fresh rolls of bathroom tissue in both bathrooms. :) Kitchen had everything we needed. The guest bathroom toilet is slightly cramped, recessed between two walls and I'm Large. Tight squeeze but manageable. lol Gas grill was nice; cooking out on the patio while the kids fished off the dock, hot tub, coconut palms swaying gently in the breeze...."priceless". We used a taxi service once, very quick and only $4.00 to take us several miles. Great place if you don't have a car, Airport is very close. Pizza Hut is within walking distance. I'd also recommend King's Seafood, family owned with some Cuban items is just blocks away. We got the Hog fish (Hog Snapper) sandwich (one fried, one blackened) on a large bun and the fish hangs over the edge, $8.50 includes one side. The hot tub was great after a hard day at play and the lighting outside was good for safety with the children around the dock. This is a quiet, friendly neighborhood. The house has a central location in the Middle Keys making for a short scenic drive to Key West or Key Largo. Don't miss the Key Deer on No Name Key and Big Pine Key. We also enjoyed the ocean fishing trips on the Lady Marathon just a couple a miles away and the mates will clean your catch. We caught Mangrove Snapper and Yellow Tail snapper on the night trip. We also did the snorkel trip on the Fury Cat out of Key West and Theater of the Sea on Islamorada. This is a great vacation home in the Keys , Cathy is very nice and a pleasure to do business with. The decor is a very tasteful tropical blend of earth tones and a theme throughout of palms with subtle sea life. Tile flooring, lots of big windows, ceiling fans and light colors on the walls gives the home a bright and open tropical feeling. It's easy to tell that this is not just a rental, the owners take pride in their home and vacation here too. Hope to return in the future.. .

This is a beautiful home on a canal!

This home sits on a canal 3 homes down from the Atlantic ocean. It is a 20 min boat ride to seven mile bridge and about the same to Vaca Cut. The home was very well equipped with everything you need. You will have communication with the home owner and realtor and they are sure to make your stay incredible. The pictures do not do this home justice. It was definitely worth every penny. It was very clean. I would certainly recommend this to friends and family. I am already making plans to come back and if it is available I will book it again!

Excellent Marathon Rental Home

This rental home was "PERFECT" for our group of jet ski riders. There was enough parking space for a 28' 4-place jet ski trailer plus a Chevy crew cab hooked up to it. And there was still enough room to park another vehicle. This was exactly the way it was listed and presented.. Cathy and David were extremely helpful on local eateries and a overview map of public launch ramps. The house was VERY clean and laid out perfect. It had all the amenities that any family or group would need to stay for a long time. The canal dock was perfect to pull and tie off and take a break before hitting the water again.
I would definitely recommend this house to anyone that had a boat, jet skis and just taking a PERFECT vacation in a PERFECT house.
We will be back and definitely will be renting this wonderful home.
We eat at Castaway, Berdines, Sunset Grille, Hideaway cafe, All excellent eating establishments
I forgot to mention all the snorkeling sites we went to.. Sombero reef, looe key reef, and Key West reefs.... All excellent areas and be sure to take a underwater camera. I took some fantastic shots..

Overall, it was PERFECT and the location was excellent and centrally located...
Check out the airplane museum, it was neat...

Our oceanside canal house is blessed with calm waters due to inshore and off-shore reefs. You can enjoy everything from fishing, diving, snorkeling or just relaxing in our dockside hot tub.. You can fish from our dock or bring a boat and enjoy some of the greatest fishing in the Keys. Also within a couple of miles you will find a kid friendly beach and two golf courses. There is much to do locally such as visiting the Marathon Dolphin Research Center or take a side trip to Bahia Honda State Park. Key West is only 45 miles to the south.

The house is well equipped for kids, ages 2-15+, with a hot tub, DVD surround sound system, cable TV, a large front yard, and a swimming canal.

If you love the keys you'll be right at home.
