nice location, but place needs some more attention and surley some proper cleaning

  • 2 of 5

No question, the location so close to the sea is great. But, if you compare prices, the place is competing with other forms of accomodation... (which due to VRBO rules I cannot mention, even though the words are so general, what's wrong with VRBO: "The reason we are currently unable to approve it is listed below. Please revise your review so that it meets our content guidelines, which you can see here. When you’re done you can resubmit it by clicking the button below:

"Your submission contains promotional content that would promote other websites, businesses, services or products unaffiliated with this website.?) offerings, and therefore needs to deliver equivalent standards")

This was not the case:

Regarding cleanliness, all glasses had plenty of (different) lipstick, cutlery and tableware needed a proper wash before being used. There was a larger piece of coral under my sheets and the floors were kind of sticky. The outdoor furniture is partly broken and the entire place seems rather run-down and not well maintained. There is no eye for detail and despite having a washing machine, providing some detergent would be as nice as providing garbage bags in the kitchen.

Could we recommend the place? To be honest, we won't come back as long as the place looks like that, because at the end, you pay a lot for a stress- and hassle-free vacation but don't find the equivalent for your money. Sorry

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry to hear you feel this way and really wish you would have let us know when you arrived about these concerns! We strive to provide great service to our guests & we are often commented about the cleanliness of the house & how well-stocked the house is. Upon your arrival I contacted you to check on how things were, but I never did receive a response. If we would have know this situation we would have surely taken steps to remedy the situations to the best of our ability by making sure that our housekeeping made things right & replacing/repairing any patio furniture that may be broken. In addition, it is our standard practice to provide guests with some laundry detergent, garbage bags for the kitchen and bathroom, paper towel roll, toilet tissues, bath soap, liquid kitchen soap with sponge, & bathroom liquid soap to get them started. If for some reason, these things were not provided to you, we needed to know so we could make it right. If you complain on the site after your stay, it is really a shame & there is really not much we can do for you at this point. If you look through all the reviews, you will see that we have never had this type of review from a guest. As a matter of fact, our guests often return because they liked it. Again, I am sorry to hear you did not have a positive experience. We wish you the best in your future travels and do hope you can be more communicative with the next owners of where you choose to stay. Thank you again.

Quiet Paradise in the Middle Keys

  • 5 of 5

The unit was exactly as described and had everything we needed as we searched out a quiet place near the water to unwind. What a delight to sit out on the chairs by the canal and enjoy the morning sunshine and the afternoon shade. The location is perfect - centrally located in Marathon just on the level of the airport and a block from a delightful bakery, Sweet Savannah! The unit featured elegant furnishings, two comfortable Queen size beds and a fully-loaded kitchen that made the stay very pleasant. The washer/dryer were very helpful as well. And don't worry about WiFi as I always do... it's super fast and reliable. Judy was a great hostess, ensuring that all went smoothly during our visit. Just sorry we didn't get to meet her.

Had a really good time. It was great to be able to have the boat right out back and to be able to kayak. The condo had everything we needed.
