Guestbook comments from the owner

To:Dave, Joyce, Sarah and Katie We have had the pleasure of enjoying your most comfortable, homey house here for a month. We come down to the Keys each year for the Earnest Hemingway contest in Key West and for our sons and grand- children to enjoy and participate in the "mini lobster" season. This year in your home has been a memorable one. All the conveniences are supplied-and the organization of the cabinets is a joy. The decor is superb! Our stay here has been one of the most pleasurable of all our visits. Thank you for opening your home and for your thoughtful welcome in the preceding page. Sincerely,
Mar 2009

Coco Plumb Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Me and my girlfriend had the the pleasure of staying at this property for two weeks in Novemebr 2007.

It was without a doubt the most wonderful holiday we've ever had. The house is clean, well equipt, the pool fabulous and you can fish from the back door!!

I cannot thank Dave and Joyce enough for allowing us to share their fantastic home in the Florida Keys. We can't wait to return.

If you're thinking about it, do yourself a favour, just book it, you won't regret it.

Regards,

Darren Lane

Pictures just don't do it justice

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfect. Three of us stayed during Christmas week and it was lovely. The home is perfectly decorated and it really did feel like a home away from home. The neighborhood is quiet and just a short walk to Cocoa Plumb Beach... Natural and dog friendly.

We loved it so much, it has promoted us to start planning to buy our own home down in the keys... But we'll be back in the meantime. Thank you Dave and Joyce.

Marathon Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect marathon house to rent, quaint but spacious for a two BR, nicely equipped and very comfortable. Everything we wanted and more from a covered patio to grill under to the pool to the dock. The Well protected canal is wide and deep. Bring your boat or rent one and the crystal blue waters of the keys are at your command. We highly recommend this property.

One week wasn't enough!

  • 5 of 5

The house is wonderful. It has everything you could possibly need. Dave and Joyce make sure everything is clean and well maintained. You can fish right off the dock. My son caught a bunch of snapper. Beware when leaving a bait net in the water, a lobster broke into ours! The location is very quiet and peaceful. The house has a special charm to it. Would highly recommend renting.

Fantastic Tropical & Private Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Living within a 4 hour drive of Marathon we spend 6-8 weeks a year there. This was our first time renting from Dave, and we can't wait to get back to his house in the very near future. It is the most private and relaxing property we have ever rented in the keys. The property is super clean with updated everything, even the gas grill was brand new. Dave is an amazingly thoughtful host, with all the amenities he supplies it makes your stay so easy. We really enjoyed the clean private pool after a long day of fishing. The floating dock attached to the seawall makes loading the boat super easy regardless of the tide. The kids had a blast exploring the mangrove lined canals with the kayak he leaves on the floating dock. There was a nice clean bait freezer just steps from the boat, and a giant freezer in the laundry room which we used to store a bunch of ice. We had coffee each morning in the Florida Room and cocktails in the evening on the covered outdoor patio. This house was so comfortable and relaxing it took us about 2 hours to get into Key's vacation mode. I have already given Dave's phone number to two friends who also vacation in Marathon. Great week of fun, we will be back very soon !
