Our entire family is close and we enjoy spending our holidays together. This house provides us with plenty of space and is perfect big dinners and great conversation.

And if you like the sun and to fish - we also have a home in Key Largo which is spectacular VRBO.com/390007 and a home in Montana VRBO.com/304457.

Brad Levine purchased this estate in 2012

We live in Florida and fell in love with the Keys. We have 2 young children and very large family and this home is large enough for all of us - even providing a few places to hide. It's just perfect. We hope you'll love it just as much as we do.

Whether skiing, fishing or just reading a book - our home provides the warm island relaxing feel needed when on vacation. You'll never want leave. It's just GREAT.

Brad:
My family and friends loved the house. We especially liked the fire pit especially since it was freezing the first two nights we were there. The cottage proved to be really roomy and perfect for a small family. We were able to fit 2 boats in the cover perfectly. We used all the amenities especially the canoe and Kayak.
The house was clean and spacious. We will definitely stay there again.
Thanks again

This is an absolutely beautiful property. I think it just may have the best view in all of the keys. The house is perfectly situated for the best ocean views. From the minute you wake up until the sun sets you will be mesmerized by the water! The house is beautiful and other than some touch up paint it is in great condition. There are four bedrooms not counting the Cottage and plenty of space for entertaining. There are two beaches within 5 and 20 minute drives. Bahia Honda State park is breathtaking! A must for anyone visiting the keys!

Gem in paradise...

After an amazing stay with my longtime friends at the Casa di Lida for my 50th Birthday celebration I am compelled to write a review to let others know about this gem in paradise! The moment we arrived we couldn't wait to make our way to the "Widows Watch" (as we say in New England), aka "Crows Nest" to catch the sunset. From the beautiful water view of the lagoon to the endless amenities on the property (which were more than we could possibly use during our stay), made this spacious and modernized estate the perfect place for our vacation. The owner offered some excellent recommendations for dinning out and entertainment in the area. If I could give this rental estate 10 stars, I would!

Beautiful and comfortable house and location but lots of maintenance issues

  • 3 of 5

The home is beautiful and comfortable and the location spectacular, just couldn't have asked for more. Kids and adults never tired of the views, the space, the fishing from the dock, the swimming, and the sunsets. The kitchen is wonderful for preparing and serving meals for a large group. Our only complaints were maintenance issues: The security system went off about midnight our first night there and would not turn off. Police arrived at the scene. The maintenance manager was summoned and couldn't turn off the alarm either without standing on and breaking a night table. The pocket door between the second bathroom and the kids bunk bedroom was broken so that the door could not be closed, limiting the use of that bathroom. The shower drain in the guest cottage overflowed with sewage and again the maintenance man was called. He got the drain working and we disinfected the shower. The cold water control in that same shower was not connected properly, so that only the hot water ran. The refrigerator in the main house leaked and would not make ice. And there was an electrical short to the lights around the dock. Perhaps these things have not been brought to the attention of the owner before, but they did seem excessive for a property of this quality.

Owner's Response: Thank you for thoughtful review. I would like to address your points one at a time. The alarm was actually the centrally controlled smoke detectors - when one breaks - they all need replacing. I am told that this needs to be done every 8 years or so. Very bad luck it happened for these guest, and I am sorry. The sliding pocket was off its track and was corrected the next day. The guest cottage did have an overflow backup but was corrected same day and the maid service also came same day to cleanup. I am not aware of the cold water control issue but will have this looked at. The refrigerator had a loose hose, and was fixed at the same time as the pocket door. Finally, I will have the outdoor lighting checked out - but since we are directly on the ocean - this is an ever on going item. Salt tastes good but loves to corrode.

I try to provide the best possible experience, and when there are issues I have an onsite management team which will address issues immediately. Its not apparent in the guests comments, but my managers were onsite quickly for each of the issues and was able to have the maintenance crew repair as they arose.

Truly enjoyed our stay at this property. The house is beautiful and very well kept. The dock is perfect to keep a boat and easy access to both the ocean and bay.

The Marathon provides the best of the Keys. You are close enough to Key West for day trip, you have the best fishing of any Key due to the currents flows, and the diving is second to none. We are also close to Pennekamp if a day trip there is desired.

The home is absolutely perfect for family reunions and couples looking to just get away.
