Overview

Central Florida Keys House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

BOOT KEY RETREAT === OPEN WATER VIEWS

Not your typical canal house, there is plenty of privacy here. You'll be in your own secluded, retreat. Your own private heated pool, 130 ft. concrete dock, New 400 lb. Ice Machine,

FoosBall Table, and views! You're not looking at the neighbors across the canal and they're not looking at you. Your view is of open water, nature's own show. There's always something going on. Fish swimming and splashing, exotic birds singing and searching for food. You can pay more, and you can pay less, but we honestly believe, you won't find better VALUE for your vacation dollar.

You'll watch boats ply back and forth in the harbor and the countless dingies comings and goings. Bring your binoculars, you never know what to expect.You can relax, be yourself, feel at home here. A simple evening here will be a lifetime memory. It's a real 'Retreat' from your normal everyday life.

KAYAKS AND BIKES -- NO EXTRA CHARGE!

You'll have two kayaks and 2 bikes for your use at no additional cost. These are advertised on the highway for $29/day and $9/day each, that's $78/day!

Linda

I would like to thank you for sharing your home with us, it was quite a treat..The children really enjoyed the area with the pool ,sand area and fishing off the wall and my husband really enjoyed having a boat for a week..

You have a great location and a great house.I left with all the bed sheets clean and put back on the beds and also all towels were done left one small load in the dryer. We left the house with little clean up for our two week of use.Thank you, we plan to return someday..

Great Vacation and Memories with my Family

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed staying in your home. It was comfortable, beautiful and very clean. The house is tastefully decorated and it has everything that you would need for a comfortable stay. It has amazing views and wildlife surrounding it including the manatees that visited one afternoon. We also used the kayaks and paddled around the lagoon. The ice machine in the garage was very convenient for daily beach trips and evening fishing trips to seven mile bridge. The fact that the house had cable was great because my elderly aunts and uncles could see their Spanish channels when we were at the house. The heated pool was wonderful, they could get in and not be cold. Also the internet service was convenient because I was able to keep in contact with work. I will have lasting memories of this trip with my aunts and uncles, ones that I will cherish forever and never forget. Thanks for allowing us to rent the house.

One suggestion would be that you repair the shade on the deck. We were not able to have dinner on the deck because in the late afternoon the sun was just too hot to eat there. We had to carry the food downstairs and use the table and chairs on the first floors. We did call Donna about the fact that it was broken.

However, this was minor and we had a wonderful time.

Great Family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

For our family vacation this year we chose the Keys because of our love of fishing and the water. 8 of us had a great time at Boot Key Retreat. The property manager was very pleasant, met us on our arrival and gave us a walk through the home. She advised her availability at any time if we needed anything.

The home is well maintained and has all the necessary items required making our week in Marathon comfortable. All the furniture was very comfortable and clean.

If you like to fish, this is the place, fish cleaning station, hose, lots of garage space to store your equipment and plenty of dock space. We caught plenty of fish, and caught our limit on some days. (keep a watch out for the resident Tarpon living in the canal!)

The pool is clean and a pleasure to jump in after a day of fishing. The basket of beach towels was a plus! We used the kayaks and the bicycles both in good working condition. The canal is quiet and provides an awesome view.

I do recommend visiting the Turtle Hospital, just a quick walk up the street. They provide a terrific service to the Keys and beyond.

The location of this home is great, Publix, Winn Dixie, K-Mart, West Marine, Walgreens are all close by as well as many local restaurants. We visited Key West twice and it was only about 50 minutes away.

This is a beautiful home, which looks great on the internet but is much better in person!

Looking forward to another trip down to the Keys!

You Couldn't Ask For More

  • 5 of 5

We used this house as our family vacation with our grown kids and grandkids. We had a total of 10 at the house and yet never felt crowded. The house is clean and beautiful, pictures don't do it justice. We loved being right on the canal with open water views. It was very peaceful and quiet but close enough to everything (Key West about an hour away). We used the kayaks daily and everyone loved them. We seen plenty of fish around the house including a small nurse shark and rays. Plenty of beach towels on hand and the pool was used everyday. We didn't have a boat, but if you have one it would be perfect. We fished off the dock and everyone caught at least one. Plenty of restaurants around (a must try is Castaway Waterfront Restaurant & Sushi Bar), or if you want to cook at the house, everything you would ever need is right there. I have used VRBO numerous times and have never been disappointed. Rent this house you won't be sorry!

Amazing Home...Don't pass this one by!

  • 5 of 5

We feel very blessed to have picked this home. It was our first time using VRBO and the home is even more beautiful that the pictures! We loved everything about it! It was far enough from Key West to enjoy the peace and quite, yet close enough to everything to do whatever you want.

We enjoyed the pool every day! The owners have anticipated your every need! There are special touches throughout the home! I loved the basket of beach towels, the washer and dryer and the kitchen has anything you would need and the grill was awesome!

The home was very clean. If you need anything Donna and Doug are great property managers!

Excellent Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have rented several VRBO properties over the years and this is definitely one of our favourites. It was extremely hot when we were there so we really enjoyed the private pool as well as the kayaks. The house is very well equiped and clean. The location is perfect also. Handy to shopping, restaurants and Key West is less than 1 hour away. We will definitely recommend this property to anyone we know who wish to stay in the florida keys.
