Guestbook comments from the manager
We all had a really great time. There was myself, wife and 2 teenage sons, my friend, his wife, and his teenage son and daughter. The 4 bedroom house was plenty big enough for all of us. I think the open concept of the living room/dining room/kitchen really helped it NOT feel crowded. The kids loved the pool, the kayaks and fishing from the dock when they weren't playing video games. The wives enjoyed sunning on the beach and cooling off in the pool. Us guys were able to catch several types of fish from the dock including barracuda, nurse shark, a small tarpon, grunts, and a couple fish that we didn't know what they were. We seen an octopus 'walk' past the dock, and seen sting ray, crab, lobster and a manatee near the dock. Jim told us to hang a chum bag in the water from the dock and the fish would come to us. They really did. I recommend doing it when the tide is a little calmer for more success.



As far as sight seeing, the beaches (Sombrero Beach, Bahia Honda State Park, Coco Plum) are all great. The key Deer are everywhere at dusk in Big Pine near the 'No Name Pub' on 'No Name Key' and also on 'Key Deer Road' past 'The Blue Hole'. Key West's Mallory Square is also amazing the hour or so before sunset. The area at the waters edge looks totally abandoned during the day, but near sunset, it completely springs to life with performers doing incredible shows and vendors with unique items. After sunset, it dies as fast as it started. Duval Street is the place to be after that. Theater of the Sea in Islamorada, the Dolphin Research Center in Marathon and the Turtle Hospital in Marathon are all places to check out for a few hours to half a day each. For fishing, I recommend a day out with Diego Cordova (http://floridakeysflats.com/) or a half day out with Sea Dog Charters. Don't forget to feed the Tarpon at Robbies in Islamorada.



We spent about as much time out sightseeing as we spent at the house. It was a terrific time all around. Our only complaint was that we ran out of gas for the grill, but Jim had a new tank to us faster than we could have ordered pizza. We are coming back!!!

We fell in love with the Florida Keys back in the 1980's when we took our first trip there. We toured the Keys from the water in a catamaran. We bought our first place there shortly after. We love owning all these properties in the Keys because it gives us a reason to come down from Wisconsin a couple times a year. We are looking to retire to the Keys someday.

Bob, Mark or Robin purchased this house in 2005

We purchased two side by side 4 bedroom homes on the Gulf of Mexico with a beautiful view and room for us to bring family and friends.

These homes have 100' Docks and beautiful views. We have added swimming pools, kayaks and sandy shorelines.

GREAT HOUSE FOR A GREAT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time both in the Keys and relaxing at the house. We loved the pool, catching fish at the dock, grilling out and sightseeing. Jim, the manager was very helpful. We are coming back this fall.

This property is wonderful! We enjoyed our vacation very much. We went with a group of four guys and had a lot of fun fishing off the dock, relaxing by the pool and grilling fresh seafood on the grill. We alreay plan on returning to this property and will be recommending it to family and friends.

A SLICE OF PARADISE RIGHT ON THE GULF SHORE!

  • 5 of 5
Wanted to share our great experience at this home! This 4 bedroom, 2 bath home is on the Gulf of Mexico. During one of our frequent visits to this home, my parents stayed with us for a weekend from Orlando & Mom found the home quite enjoyable despite her disability. This was a huge relief to my wife & me!!
We enjoy the dockside fishing, boating and wild life that we see every time we are here! The home is very near local restaurants, fish markets and my wife & I especially enjoy walking across the Vaca Cut bridge in the evening where we can watch the Tarpon feeding underneath. My wife loves to cook our fresh caught seafood for dinner & she always spoils me with Banana Pancakes for breakfast. . .a tradition we started while staying in this home for the first time, nearly 5 years ago!

Looking for a great place to share with family & friends? This place has the room, the view & the amenities! The management team & owners are always great with suggestions for places to visit locally!!
We can't wait to share our next trip with our good friends! Hoping to move here soon. . .You'll fall in love with Marathon, just as we did!

GREAT VACATION HOME ON THE WATER

  • 5 of 5
I would recommend this home to anyone. It was clean and the air conditioning worked great for those hot days that we needed to cool down. The pool was a blast for the kids. I especially enjoyed the long pier. The fishing was great and I was really able to perfect my net throwing abilities. We did some sight seeing, but spent most of our time at the house. Great swimming. Great fishing. Great views. Great weather. A Good Time Avi, Los Angeles

GREAT LOCATION AND PROPERTY!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this home for two wonderful weeks and loved every moment of it. It's in a great location of marathon close to great restaurants, shopping, grocery stores and boating is amazing! The house overall was in great shape and Very clean!!! (I am an extreme clean person that looks under beds, dressers & cabinets... it was all clean) Our only complaint was that the beds in the house are defiantly in need of an upgrade, no one that stayed with us said they had a great night sleep.
All and all we really did enjoy this house and our stay there!

FUN TIME VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
My wife & I selected an island vacation for our 50th wedding anniversary. It is something we have never experienced and had no idea what to expect. The idea of spending a week on a house boat at a secluded island by ourselves was really exciting. I talked with the owner Bob a couple months before our arrival date and one thing led to another and I was telling him it was our 50th wedding anniversary. He was genuinely interested and asked me to call him the week before we were to arrive and he would upgrade our reservation to Pretty Joe Rock with no additional charge if it was not going to be occupied. Something he surely wouldn't have had to do, unfortunately when we called it had been reserved. Robin stayed in touch with me to make sure we were kept informed. We were to call a man named Jim in Marathon two days prior to confirm our arrival. Finally the day arrived for us to go. The weather forecast was calling for high winds and rain! We drove 8 hours and arrived about an hour early. Jim greeted us but was very apprehensive to take us to the island because of the forecast. He said if we really wanted to go he would do it but was worried for us. He called Bob,the owner,and he offered to upgrade our reservation to a 4 bedroom beach front home with the use of a 17 ft. boat and the island at no additional charge. I've never had a rental reservation where everyone worked so hard to make sure we were happy with our vacation. It was just too pleasurable to explain.The weather was terrible 4 of the 7 days with gale force winds one day. With that said one would think we had a undesirable vacation but actually we ranked it as one of the best. The house was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. We made it out to the island a couple times and it was absolutely beautiful. Got to fish a couple days and actually caught enough to have fish there for dinner and bring some home! We are both looking forward to vacationing with Rent My Island again this year. I just hope Mother Nature will be half as nice to us as the owner and staff are! Thanks to all of you! Ray & Connie
