my wedding at butterfly beach

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 1, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
we had a wedding here about 70 people, it was the perfect setting . All of our guests said it was one of the best wedding they had ever been to. the palm trees on the beach with the beautiful water and sky were an amazing back drop for pics. Our photographer wished she could do all her wedding shots with this kind of back drop. the owner was very good about making sure everythign was going well and checking to see if we needed anything. the property was very clean and beautiful. I would recommend to anyone wanting a nice relaxed amazing wedding, or any family gathering or reunions. there are plenty of things to do outside of the house in marathon great places to eat, the dolphin discovery is within walking distance from house( .4 miles i would guess) to go swim with the dolphins. The pool and outdoor seeting is great for entertaining.

Owner's Response: Kathy, Dallas:
It was truly an honor and a pleasure to be able to host your lovely wedding on our property. You had a wonderful ceremony, we had a lot of fun watching the proceedings from afar. The flower girls/boys were absolutely adorable, the wedding itself against the backdrop of the sea and palm trees stunning. We enjoyed hearing your music until close to midnight, actually it gave my wife and I the perfect backdrop to dance ourselves. Plus, your rehearsal dinner the night before. I understand your guests, those that stayed with you through the wedding and those that stayed in nearby hotels had a grand time. Then, you were able to have your honeymoon there for the rest of the week, just the two of you. Absolutely perfect!!!!

Please remind all of your friends that our property is available for their own weddings, should they so wish. That, together with our standard 10% off returning guests and/or family/friends of returning guests should encourage them to have as memorable a wedding and/or vacation themselves as they witnessed you having yours.

Our best wishes to you, a long and lasting loving relationship!!

Exactly what we wanted

The house was exactly what we wanted. A beautiful location with a stunning view out to the ocean. The private beach was great for wading and napping under the palms. I saw a bonnethead shark while out wading on the first day. Our children were in the pool morning to night. Bernard was very helpful with information on what to do and see in the area. The first day were there was the end of the seafood festival in Marathon, which had lobster, oysters, conch fritters, shrimp etc at great prices. Wonderful visit, our party would love to return in the future.

We spent 10 wonderful days at Butterfly Beach and we loved it. The house is very nice, modern and open. It’s great to have your own beach and a view like in paradise.
We specially recommend it for people who want to relax and have some privacy.

Places to eat:

MARATHON:

1. Butterfly Café, Tranquility Bay : Upscale, very nice, restaurant within an upscale typical Keys hotel.

2. Keys Fisheries – Good seafood, funky, theme-oriented restaurant and fish market

3. Lazy Days South – Excellent views, abundant portions. – U.S.1 to 11th Street, make a left towards the Ocean, next to Marathon Marina.

4. Plaza Grill ¬– Upscale Italian/Continental. Good food, pricey – Celebratory – Next to Marathon Deli, where you can buy excellent Boars Head cold cuts at prices below Publix.

5. Frank’s Grill – Good, honest Italian food, cooked by the chef/owner, reasonably priced.

6. Porky’s Bayside – Barbecue, good value.

7. Hideaway Café -- Very close to our property, good food, needs reservations.

8. Barracuda Grill - - OK, can be pricey

9. Tarpon Creek - Good for pizzas, casual atmosphere – part of the Holiday Inn Express

10.Lencho’s – Southern Mexican food – Daily all you can eat.

11.Hurricane Grill – Buffalo wings/pizzas, informal eatery.

12.Several breakfast spots:

a.Sweet Savannah’s – Great cupcakes, coffee and croissants

b.Juice Paradise – Good basic Cuban food.

c.Stuffed Pig – Good American breakfast.

d.Wooden Spoon – Good American breakfast.

e.Island Fish Company – Good for breakfast and lunch

f.Baricci’s – Sandwiches, Panini, etc.

ISLA MORADA: Too many restaurants to detail. However, here are my favorites:

1.Chef Michael’s Love and Hog Fish: My personal favorite, Chef Michael does a great job with fresh fish. Also, puts out an outstanding a la carte Sunday Brunch.

2.Pierre’s: Excellent but pricey, good for celebrations, prepare to spend a bundle.

3.Tower of Pizza: Basic but good pizza and salads.

4.Lazy Days North: Same management and menu as Lazy Days South.

KEY WEST: Too many restaurants to detail. Here my favorites:

1.ZaZa’s Pizzeria: In Sugarloaf Key, mm 17, about 20 minutes before KW. Best pizza, authentic ingredients. Chef/owner ZaZa very personable.

2.Sunset Key: Small island across from KW, reachable by free ferry from the Westin Hotel. Excellent restaurants, Latitudes, fresh fish, top-notch service.

3.Lou’s Backyard: Perhaps the best restaurant in KW, has a classic menu downstairs and a tapas menu upstairs.

Things to Do:

MARATHON:

1.Fishing: We can recommend two types of fishing charters:

- Deep Sea Fishing: We can recommend Captain Mederos, a very reliable captain. Provides ½, ¾ and full day charters for up to 6 people in his boat. Half-day = $650; Three Quarter day = $850; Full Day: $950.

-Flat Fishing (Tarpon and Bonefish): Captain Richard Keating, about the same pricing, but for 2 people

-There are various group charters that can be booked on for less than $100/day per person.

2.Boating: Numerous outfits rent boats. We like Captain Hook’s, Vaca Key, Marathon

3.Diving/Snorkeling: Again, several operators. We can recommend some.

4.Bicycling: Keys Outfitter, in Marathon, excellent firm.

5.Kayaking: Several reputable places rent kayaks to explore both bay and ocean.

6. Old Seven Mile Bridge and Pigeon Key: You will want to visit this historical attraction and museum, memorializing Henry Flagler’s construction of the Railroad that Went to Sea, widely known as the eighth wonder of the modern world. Excellent sunset viewing.

7.Crane Point: Natural Park and Museum

8.Dolphin Research Center: Just across from our property. Non-profit attraction designed to preserve dolphins and other marine mammals. Viewing and “swim-with-the-dolphin” opportunities.

9.Turtle Hospital.

NEARBY BEACHES AND STATE PARKS:

You can enjoy a good swim off our own beach, 240 ft of it, a shallow and very calm beach. There are others nearby, including:

1.Sombrero Beach.Take Sombrero Boulevard (right next to Publix, mm50) to the end. This is a wonderful active beach owned and maintained by the City of Marathon.

2.Bahia Honda State Park:Right off the 7-mile bridge (between Marathon and Big Pine Key). Voted one of the 10 best beaches in the United States.

3.Curry Hammock State Park: About 1 mile south of our property, in Grassy Key itself. Great bird watching opportunities as well.

4.Long Key State Park: About 8 miles north of our property, in Long Key.

KEY WEST: Lots of things to do in this touristy town:

1.Duval Street (very touristy);

2.Mallory Square (at sunset, by the water/cruise ship channel), lots of people, fun;

3.Several museums, including Mel Fisher’s Atocha exhibit. Hemingway’s House.

4.Cemetery.

5.Butterfly Gardens,

6.Southernmost point in the US.

7.Sunset Key (See above under restaurants).

8.You can also take a ferry to Ft. Jefferson/the Tortugas, a full day trip which requires either staying overnight in KW or leaving very early out of Marathon.

ISLAMORADA: Great restaurants, elegant shops.

1.Diving Museum

2.Thursday Night Art

KEY LARGO:

Key Largo Reef: Back in Key Largo (mm103), glass bottom boat, snorkeling, kayaking, etc.
