Truly Amazing! Best Destination Wedding Location!

  • 5 of 5
The pictures of the place are nice online, but seeing with our own eyes was incredible. We pulled into the gated entry, drove down the long, winding and beautifully landscaped driveway which ends at the beach and were in awe the entire time. I still remember the big cheesy grins stuck to our faces. Pictures do not do it justice at all. It is so much better in person that we ever realized possible. People were constantly telling us we could not have picked a better place.
We rented the place for a week starting Tuesday and had the entire wedding party stay with us. Rehearsal and dinner was there on Friday with the wedding Saturday. The property accommodated all needs for sleeping, eating, parking, and more. My husband and I took the one bedroom house connected to the main for privacy. It also worked out great having the bridal party get ready there so we wouldn't be seen.
We swam in all three pools, fished off the dock, kayaked, partied, and best of all, got married! It was the time of our lives for us and all guests. Maybe one day we can all go back.
Kevin and Joe were pleasant to work with. Only suggestion would be faster deposit return. Otherwise, absolutely perfect!!

Awesome Honeymoon with Friends and Family

  • 5 of 5
We rented this home for our honeymoon in October 2014. We invited 9 of our family and friends to join us. We had an amazing time. The house is even more beautiful in person. It's a rough decision when u have to decide which pool to go into for the day. The kitchen was outstanding. A great time was had by all. Would 100% recommend this place.

Amazing, Jaw Dropping Property

  • 5 of 5
Jaw dropping is literally what happened from the second we drove up the drive-way. Then we all ran around the property saying, "OMG! Look at this! Look at this!" While we had viewed the pictures on-line many times, it is so much more stunning in person. It is a gorgeous property that is beautifully maintained both inside and out. The main house perfectly fit 3 couples and my mother very comfortably. The cabana house was ideal for my nephew and his wife and the guest house couldn't have worked out better for 7 children between the ages of 13-21! The newly added salt-water pool was thoroughly enjoyed and the dock worked out perfectly for feeding fish, catching fish and boating.
Everything we needed and more was in the home.
Both Kevin the owner and Joe the property manager were consistently responsive to questions, calls and any of our needs while we stayed in the home.
If we are to stay in the Keys again we will certainly stay here or at any property they own and manage. It was a perfect way to spend Christmas vacation.

Paradise Found in Marathon (Grassy Key) Florida

  • 5 of 5
We decided to take our whole Adult family on a Christmas Vacation. Five children, their spouses and two teenagers. We went the week before Christmas.

The home was laid out perfectly. The main house featured 3 master suites, my husband and I, one daughter and spouse, and a daughter stayed in the main house. Our son his wife and 2 teen girls stayed in the guest house. One son and girlfriend in the pool house, another daughter and spouse in the casita. It was perfect comfort for everyone.

The brand new pool by the dock was the families meeting place. Spent many hours enjoying each other's company. Fishing, and snorkeling from the dock was too much fun. We caught fish and fried them right up, along with steaks on the grill. The large upper deck overlooking the pool, dock, sandy beach area and amazing sunsets accommodated the whole family.

Inside the main house the huge kitchen, large pantry, gas stove, 2double ovens, 2 dishwashers, and lots of granite counter tops made it easy for everyone to pitch in or hang out preparing family meals. Publix and KMart is 10 miles down the road so it was very convenient for all our shopping needs also. The dining area right beside the kitchen was perfect for game nights.

Each sleeping quarters was private with their own bathrooms and linens. Most rooms featured King or Queen beds and were quite comfortable.

All the family would retreat to the Guest House after hours to the pool table and play a few rounds of pool before calling it a night.

There is a laundry room that came in VERY handy washing pool towels, and bath towels each night.

Our experience dealing with the Owner (Kevin) and the Property Manager (Joe) couldn't have been easier or more accommodating.

Off property we set up a backwater fishing charter three mornings, brought home lots of grouper, and snapper for dinner, rented jet skis one day, went to Theatre by the Sea, World Wide Sportsman, Key West and a local nature trail. Everything is really within an hours drive. PERFECT.

All in all this was a perfect keys vacation and we hear they own two other properties on Isla Marada and Key Largo so we are looking forward to visiting these properties on future trips.

Two Thumbs Up. Perfect and Great time had by All.

This property will leave you wanting to stay...

  • 5 of 5
The property is amazing. The new owner has poured not only his money but his creativity into enhancing and updating paradise. And Joe the property manager is a real PRO, anything you need you just ask.
I hosted a trip with my 3 young sons and wife, two other dads with 4 additional boys and my Dad. One dad stayed in the pool house away from his kids and wife until she arrived with 3 days left, he said it was awesome. The other dad stayed with 4 boys age 7-13 in the guest home. They both said if invited next year they want the same arrangement because it was perfect and housed everyone in comfort. I stayed in the main house with my family. We all took turns cooking and cleaning in the gourmet kitchen. It was the pulse place for the trip. Back to the kitchen its fabulous 2 dishwashers multiple sinks and gas cooking with double ovens, and a large walk in pantry and granite counter tops. It really is nice you will enjoy sitting in the kitchen office looking out the window at the gulf and the sunsets were amazing. They even had a grill outside by the pool. The remainder of the big house slept my dad down stairs and 3 boys up and my wife and I up. The place was being updated with new furniture and we can’t wait till next year to see it.
Outside there were 2 fabulous pools, a 3rd one gulf side coming, a dock where the boys hung out fishing and snorkeling. They even found 6 lobsters in the rubble. They saw iguanas and geckos while trying to open every fallen coconut. It is an adventure land for kids that love the outdoors. They had just finished a tiki hut that rally blocked the sun while having a drink.
I took a 31 contender. The drive way DOES NOT accommodate trailers. Make arrangements before you go with a Marina to leave it. The dock accommodated the boat on all tides. We fished the hump and in 2 trips lasting only 3 hrs each we brought home over 50lbs of Mahi filets and over 200 Lobster.
You wont go wrong renting this jewel.
