Location, Location, Location!

To me vacations are all about location. If you love the water and the easiest access to open water this house gets 5 stars. The location cannot be beat and the amenities are all there for a perfect vacation. I recommend this house for many reasons and you cannot pick a better location in the middle keys!

First Trip, but not the Last!

  • 5 of 5
Rod & Barb,
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the Keys and want to thank you for the use of your home. It was exactly as advertised, but even more. Sunsets are amazing, the kayaks are a great plus and access (water and land) is great. Couldn't ask for more. This was our first trip to the Keys and I suspect you have spoiled us! We met the welcoming committee (beautiful green iguana) immediately upon arrival and this set the stage for more wildlife viewings. We made 8 dives and got to see sharks, barracuda, green turtle, spotted eel, moray eel, stingray, puffer fish, tons of lobster and many more! Took trips to Key West, Key Largo, the Turtle Hospital and several local restaurants. Your home made for a great "base of operations" for the week and each day we looked forward to being home to watch the sunset and feed the fish off the dock. We hope we can come back soon!

Excellent week in Marathon

  • 5 of 5
Just wanted to drop you a quick note and say that we really enjoyed our week at your place in Marathon. The weather was perfect other than the steady 15 kt winds out of the east. We rented a boat for 4 days and spent most of the time back in the bay. Found that both east and west Bahia Honda keys have deep edges along the mangroves on the west side so we could get out of the wind and fish. Caught lots of nice size mangrove snapper back there. Snorkeling around there we saw a few nice sized snook back up under the mangroves. We did venture out on the reef 2 days for a few hours. Caught some yellowtail and we snorkeled on the reef a bit, but 2-3 ft seas every 3 seconds gets old so we really did not get a chance to explore out there too much.

We really enjoyed the kayaks and the local resident manatee(s). Your house was very nice and the location is great. Extremely convenient to stores (grocery, bait & tackle) and of course lots of good restaurants. We had to leave at 6am on the 5th to get across the 7 mile bridge before they closed it for the bridge run! Had breakfast at the Galley Grill on Summerland Key (really good breakfast) then toured around Key West a few hours before our flight home. Thanks again.

Great week in Keys.

  • 5 of 5
Spent spring break here and could not have made a better choice for a house on the water. Owners were helpful, house was more than we were expecting, clean, roomy, good location. Hope to spend more than a week there next year. 5 manatees spent the morning at our dock one day, highlight of trip. Thanks again

Great House on the Gulf

  • 5 of 5
I spent two months in this waterfront house on the Gulf and enjoyed every minute of it. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly and there are bike paths right around the corner for yourselves or walking your four legged friend. The views overlooking the protected lagoon to the Gulf are spectacular. The set up of the bedrooms is ideal as it gives each guest their own privacy separate from the other. The kitchen is large and has everything you could need and it overlooks the Gulf as does the dining area and master bedroom. And loads of closet space! The huge deck that goes across the back of the house on the water side is perfect for enjoying the incredible weather and is situated such that you can enjoy sun or shade. I had my 22' boat with me and the docking facilities are extremely well thought out. Since you are right on the Gulf you are minutes from the Atlantic Ocean either via the 7 Mile Bridge, which takes you to Sombrero Reef for incredible diving, or you can head out through the Vaca Cut. All the comforts of home await you at this house. You will not be disappointed. And the icing on the cake was the visits from the manatee and turtles. The Manatee (I named him George) came right up beside my boat at the dock. If available, I would stay here year after year. Great house.

Christmas in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
The house was everything we had hoped for and more. We could not have asked for a nicer, prettier, cleaner place to stay. The view was to die for and we enjoyed time on the deck, porch, and docks. My son and his girlfriend thoroughly enjoyed the kayaks. The dock access was perfect, the sunsets beautiful. We spent the week there for Christmas and Santa did not disappoint!! Perfect location to groceries, Key West, and Islamarado. My son caught a monster sailfish and had a blast diving for lobster. The owner was very helpful and an absolute pleasure to work with. We are already planning summer and Christmas vacations again to stay at this perfect place in Paradise. We have been going to the Keys for years and have stayed at many places but this by far tops them all! Can't wait to go back!
