About Mark D.

Mark moved to Jensen Beach Florida in 2005 from the Philadelphia suburbs. Weekend trips to the Keys led to my purchase of my dream condo in Islamorada. I want everyone who stays in my condo to have as great a time as I do when I am there.

Mark D. purchased this condo in 2008

Why Mark D. chose Upper Florida Keys

A relative owned a unit in the Summer Sea complex years ago that I had the pleasure to stay in. When I decided to buy I remembered how close it was to everything.

What makes this condo unique

Amazing views from everywhere in the unit. Huge pool deck with lots of tables with umbrellas, chairs and chaise lounges and very large pool. Sunsets galore from condo unit and common grounds. Quiet complex with 4 person full time staff that keep it meticulously maintained.

The property is excellent, except for the toxic fumes from one of the boats.

Overall had a great time as usual. Owner is fantastic to deal with. Depending on the state of the Canadian dollar next year we may not be back. Our cost in U.S. dollars was $2,495.00 for the Condo, but that cost us $3,435.00 with the exchange rate. We also took a hit in motel costs for 6 nights return travel. If we did not already put a deposit down last year, we would have not returned this year. I feel the U.S. is going to loose quite a bit on the tourism trade in 2018. Very unfortunate as we love our visits there.

Owner's Response: Bill: It's been a pleasure having you as a guest and I hope the Canadian Dollar gains strength to provide a more favorable exchange rate in the future so you'll return to our Summer Sea Condo! I know you have stayed with us for three or four straight years and have always had a 5 Star experience. Mark D.

Great Condo for our Vacay!

  • 5 of 5

Summer Sea condo is in a great location. We made day trips to Key West, kayaking to Indian Key, snorkeling, and a few bike rides. The gated condo is very clean and well maintained. Staff is friendly and the pool is excellent!! The condo itself was great for my husband and I. Plenty of space and well-equipped kitchen. This was our first trip to the Keys, and if we ever get to go back I hope we can stay here again!

Wonderful condo! Clean, comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this condo. Mark was wonderful to work with and his condo and the Summer Seas property exceeded our expectations. We make the trip to the Keys twice a year to go fishing and this condo completely fit the bill for all of our needs. It was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed for the week. Mark was such a pleasure to work with from start to finish, from the ease of the rental process, prompt responses to my questions and inquiries, great restaurant recommendations, etc. We've rented many houses/condo's in the Keys via VRBO and this one has moved to the top of the list. I know that this will be our first choice rental when we book our spring fishing trip! Thanks Mark for a wonderful VRBO experience! We went to Dillon's to watch the game and had good food at reasonable prices and friendly service-thank you for the recommendation! We didn't make it to The O.V but did try The Whistle Stop and found it to be "our" kind of place as well with decent food, great drinks (no skimping on the pour here), very reasonable prices and Shane the bartender was extremely personable. If you're looking for the ocean or bay-view finer dining experience, neither of these places fit the bill but if you want to go where the locals go for some decent grub, a good drink and friendly service both Dillon's and The Whistle Stop should be on your list. Thanks again Mark for everything!

Vacation for 2

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I arrived to a very clean and well appointed condo. The view is wonderful, especially at sunset. The balcony is a perfect spot for meals overlooking the water. The rooftop is a perfect place to view the sunset. We had everything we needed to prepare our own meals as we don't do a lot of eating out. (There is a nice cafe right across the street, and a Winn-Dixie about 2 miles away). The bathroom is nice and roomy with a shower big enough for 2. :-) Mark is a pleasure to do business with. Thanks!
