AFFORDABLE 1 & 2 BEDROOM OPEN WATERFRONT RENTALS W/DOCKAGE & RAMP

Sombrero Beach Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 1 Bedroom (Sleeps 2); 2 Bedroom (Sleeps 4)

Sunset Villas, located on a small quaint island called Conch Key (mile marker 63 - between Marathon and Islamorada), offers quality, affordable OPEN WATERFRONT vacation rentals. Each one or two bedroom villa includes complimentary deep-water dockage (park your boat right in front of your villa!) and use of our on-site boat ramp. Located just west of Long Key Channel, you can be in the Atlantic Ocean in 5 minutes for fishing, lobstering, snorkeling and diving. We also offer discounted fishing packages in the off season and can refer you to local boat rentals or dive/snorkel charters. Please do note that we do not allow Jet Skis at our location.

The one bedroom (700 square feet) has a King size bed as well as a pull-out futon. The two bedroom (900 square feet) has a king size bed in one bedroom and two double beds in the other bedroom, as well as a futon in the living room. Each villa has a spacious living & dining area and a full size kitchen. We know you will be very happy with the size and quality of our accommodations.

We provide our guests with a comfortable outdoor area, which includes a gas grill, hammock, a tree top deck, and two bicycles for touring the island and fishing bridge. We also have an ocean kayak available for guest use free of charge! We have swim ladders from our docks for snorkeling and swimming in the crystal clear waters that surround our location.

Beauitful Sunsets and Great Hosts

This was our first trip to Florida and it definitely will not be the last. We had a great time and recommend staying here. We went tarpon fishing. Catching a tarpon was quite a workout. That was one of the many highlights to our trip.

Perfect Place, Perfect Host, Perfect Location..

Imagine this, you drive onto the small quiet Conch Key with anticipation, wondering if what you saw on the website was true. There was only one road in and one road out, and you wondered momentarily if you made the right choice. It’s obviously a tiny community and you aren’t sure if this will be what you expected.

Well, when we pulled up to Sunset Villas and went through the gate, it was nothing but great. Tropical plants and palms lined and shaded the gated entrance until the water came into view. The hammock between two palms, the boat dock, the Bar-B-Q area with the tiled bar and upper deck seating for watching the sunsets every night. arrrg, makes you want this to be your home, so nice.

The villa itself was beautiful, clean and well appointed. The beds were comfy and the kitchen had everything we needed. The area is quiet, secluded and peaceful-a great place to relax and enjoy time together. Also, just a short drive to Marathon Key for restaurants, shopping and beaches.

We were greeted by Bill and Katrina and given the lay of the villa while we waited for our boat rental for the week… They made us feel welcome immediately, and we truly felt like this place was our home for the week. While getting acquainted with the outdoor area, a manatee meandered under and around the dock and my wife got to rub its back. Later we got to see a family of sea turtles that seemed to love the area around the dock throughout the week.

If you are a fisherman out of state looking to fish, it took me a while, but chum and live bait were the answer, chum being the key. Sunset Villas is the prime location for the reef about 7 miles out and about 26 miles to Marathon Hump. We caught Cero Mackerel, Mutton Snapper, Black fin tuna (on the hump), Yellow Tail snapper, Barracuda, and Bonito for bait and chunking.

Just an awesome week and we will be back.

Sunset Villas was absolutely beautiful and just what we both needed, from fishing on the dock each night to relaxing in the chairs and watching the awesome sunsets. The villa was very clean and accomodating, we couldn't of asked for more. It was so nice(having our coffee/tea each morning) as we walked out of our door to what we can only describe as heaven on earth. We spent many days & nights right there at the villa, there is so much to enjoy....bicycles, kayaking and just enjoying all the beautiful fish that were right off of the dock, we even had the pleasure of seeing manatees. We have so many happy memories we will cherish forever. We certainly look forward to returning. Thank you so much Katrina and Bill for your wonderful hospitality.

We Had a Blast!

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I stayed at this property 3/23/13 through 3/30/13 and were thoroughly thrilled with our experience. We stopped at a grocery store prior to our arrival which was a good move as the nearest grocery store or restaurant is approximately 20 minutes away (in Marathon).

Our intention was to be lazy and spend time in the sun the whole week but Mother Nature had other ideas... However, this location was great for a day trip to Key West as well as an afternoon in Islamorada. The outdoor patio area was wonderful as it is right on the water and is in full sun the whole day, when it is shining!

We stayed in the one bedroom apartment on the second level; it was spacious, extremely clean and had everything we needed. We especially liked the tiled, walk-in shower. My only suggestion would be to add a full-length mirror in the bedroom--nice for short people like me!!

Overall, we had an awesome time and look forward to returning.

Extremely well maintained, clean, modern. Owners available to answer questions and offer advice regarding meals, dining, fishing trips which were all great recommendations. The outdoor patio was perfect for relaxing and socializing with others if the mood hit. Good kitchen setup. Recommend highly.

I made the contact because of the great reviews, and now I'll try to write one of my own. My brother and I stayed here for a fishing trip, and we actually had to maneuver our travel plans at the last minute due to Hurricane Isaac. Capt. Bill and Katrina were honest and accomodating, and their location and facilities are first rate. When we needed info as to finding local places, they were very quick and resourceful. We ended up spending much more time near the property than expected, fishing, snorkeling, and kayaking. Plus, and I'm sure there are very good restaurants in the area, but grilling out watching the sun set over the Gulf is a spectacular sight. We will be back again for sure!
