The highlight of our vacation

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time to visit the Keys and it was our first VRBO. The home exceeded expectations on all fronts. We took four teenage boys to the Keys for the week. The way the house is laid out, it provided plenty of personal space for everyone. The view is truly spectacular from each level of the home. Everything was very clean, beds were comfortable, the kitchen was ideal and well equipped for that size group and everything was impeccably maintained. The elevator was a great addition if you don't like the exercise that stairs have to offer.

Some things we did during the trip: two snorkel trips (Spirit and Bahia Honda State Park - both were excellent), rented bikes from Wheels to Go (they deliver and pick up) - would recommend taking a left out of the gated community and riding through the City of Key Colony, went on two charter fishing trips, one trip yielded two very large Mahi Mahi and some Black Fin tuna, we took it to a restaurant and they cooked our catch, the guys also enjoyed the cable wake boarding park even though three of the four had not wake boarded before, we grilled out on the nice grill provided with the home and enjoyed the private hot tub and community pool overlooking the open water. The guys enjoyed sunning on the upper deck. The downstairs fridge and freezer really came in handy.

If you are into boating, I would highly recommend bringing or renting a boat for the week. The home offers a great convenient place to dock a boat within steps of the house. We will definitely do this next time.

Bring some snorkeling gear. You can snorkel right off the dock. The water was very clear.

Larry was great to work with and we would rent from him again on our next trip to Marathon.

The home is also conveniently located within 3 miles of a Publix. As the Mom in the group, I spent a lot of time there.

An Absolutely Spectacular Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5
We've stayed in lots of hotels and motels over the years, along with a fair number of Bed and Breakfasts. Many, although certainly not all, of those facilities were nice. This luxury home was an awesome treat!

The view from every level is great. My wife and I slept in the Master bedroom, and left the sliding glass door open every night. (We stayed the first week of December, and the weather was perfect. High temperature of 80, and a low of 72!) It was so pleasant hearing the sound of the water lapping the shore. We came to anticipate listening to the fishing boats heading out every morning. Wonderful!

It is SO convenient to have "everything" you could possibly need in your vacation home. Dirty clothes? A great washer and dryer is right there! Hungry, but don't want to go out to eat? A complete kitchen is right there! All the utensils/pots/pans/blender, etc. are at your beck and call. How enormously convenient!

We cooked and BBQ'd several times. Heck, I even baked the family a cake! The "kid"s swam almost every day. We all used the hot tub. It was great!

We drove to Key West (a 45 minute trip, depending upon traffic) a couple days, and did some of the "touristy" things missed on previous visits. We also toured Crane Point, and rode rental bikes all over Marathon. It was truly a spectacular time.

Larry's property helped make it so. It is so thoughtfully appointed, that most anyone would instantly feel at home. We unquestionably recommend this property .

Make your vacation spectacular, too!

AN AMAZING PLACE TO STAY!!

  • 5 of 5
MY FAMILY AND I HAVE BEEN COMING TO THE KEYS FOR MANY YEARS NOW. WE HAVE STAYED AT DIFFERENT RENTAL HOMES AND HAVE NEVER ENJOYED A VACATION AS MUCH AS WE DID THIS YEAR.
LARRY'S HOME IS AMAZING! HE TRULY HAS THOUGHT OF EVERYTHING. NOT ONLY IS HIS HOME IMMACULATE, AND IS DECORATED LIKE A DESIGNER HOME WITH EVERY AMMENITY POSSIBLE, BUT THE VIEW IS SIMPLY SOMETHING YOU WOULD SEE ON THE COVER OF A TRAVEL MAGAZINE!! THE HOME IS SITUATED DIRECTLY ON THE GULF OF MEXICO AND THE VIEWS FROM THE BALCONYS, WINDOWS AND DOCK ARE STUNNING!
WE BROUGHT OUR BOAT WITH US AND WERE ABLE TO DOCK IT RIGHT UP AGAINST THE SEAWALL. EVERYTHING WAS SO EASY AND LARRY HAS THOUGHT OF EVERY DETAIL! WE CAUGHT TONS OF FISH AND LARRY EVEN HAS A CLEANING STATION READY TO ACCOMMODATE!
WE ARE A FAMILY OF 5 WITH TEENAGERS (WHO EACH BROUGHT A FRIEND ALONG) AND EVERYONE WAS HAPPY! THERE WAS SO MUCH TO DO AND SEE.
THE FURNISHINGS IN THE HOUSE ARE EXQUISITE, AND THE APPLIANCES ARE ALL TOP NOTCH.....NOT AT ALL WHAT YOU WOULD EXPECT IN A RENTAL HOME. THE FLATSCREEN TV'S ARE ALL HUGE AND SINCE EACH ROOM HAD ONE, THERE WAS NO ARGUING OVER WHAT TO WATCH!
EVERYTHING LARRY DOES IS 1ST CLASS, AND WE ARE ALREADY LOOKING FORWARD TO STAYING AGAIN NEXT YEAR!

I can't say enough about this rental home. If you want a perfect spot to relax or explore the Keys, this is it. With Marathon centrally located, we were able to take full advantage of all this area has to offer.
We were a group of older couples sharing this home. It was my turn to pick something, and my research paid off with a great vacation.
A few times in Key West were enough to satisfy our need for excitement (and shopping)then we settled down to more relaxing ventures like Sombrero Beach, fishing, snorkeling, bicycling, and boat rental. Jumping in that Jacuzzi after a day on the water was the best!
We had plenty of restaurant choices for some delicious meals on the waterfronts close by, and we took full advantage. Key Colony and Island Fish Co. were our favorites.
The house is spectacular. Larry makes sure you have whatever you need, from security to fishing gear to comfortable pool chaises to beach towels to even the little shampoos in your bath! The home is very modern with wireless internet & fax, a wine chiller, an elevator, and full kitchen.
Two of the bedrooms have their own bath, and the children's room (bunkbeds with a full bottom & also a large trundle bed) has one next to it, so the home afforded 3 adult couples plenty of privacy.
The booking was easy to arrange by email, and Larry kept in touch with me for the whole process, even when we were delayed in arriving.
We've traveled a lot, and often you don't know what you're going to get, but these pictures tell the story. I just copied them to print along with my others so I can show my friends just how beautiful this place is.
Thanks for the experience, Larry!

Beautiful home, amenities galore

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed the comfort and conveniences of this beautiful home right on the water. The special touches like extra towels, well-stocked pantry and kitchen, and great outdoor furniture really added to our wonderful experience. The home was beautifully decorated, and meticulously clean. Having all the paper products, soap, shampoo, laundry detergent, etc. furnished was terrific and is somewhat uncommon for these type rentals. We also really appreciated the great security system and the elevator for getting luggage in and out. It was a real pleasure dealing with Larry, as he is very responsive, personable and informative about the property and all its various features. He toured us through the house, explained the various systems and was readily available by phone for any follow-up questions. The restaurants we particularly enjoyed were Keys Fisheries, Frank's and Sparky's (especially for Happy Hour). Also enjoyed our visits to the Turtle Hospital and the Dolphin Research Center (coupons at the Chamber of Commerce). Heavy winds limited our beach and biking time, but we still enjoyed the warm, sunny weather and the lovely view and amenities the home offers. Highly recommend.
