About Jan & Ed Burnsed
We wanted a tropical vacation home and started our search in the Bahamas Out Islands; from there we traveled to the US Virgin Islands, British Virgin Islands, Costa Rica and Belize. We found some wonderful homes but each had drawbacks so we decided to look closer to home in the US. We took a trip to Marathon Florida Keys in 2011 and found all the conveniences of home, grocery stores, drug stores, restaurants, water front bars, charter boats, beaches and, if needed, a hospital. On that trip we purchased a waterfront park model recreational vehicle. After spending a lot of time in Marathon we were sold and started looking for a permeant vacation home there. We eventually found Tarpon Run at Gulfpoint II, a twenty unit condominium complex with its own dock and fishing pier perched on a Gulf side peninsula at Vaca Cut with access to both the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. In March 2015 we purchased Tarpon Run from Linda and Phil Burkart who had been offering Tarpon Run as a vacation rental home since 2009. Gulfpoint II located in Marathon. The middle Keys is easily accessible from Key West (50 miles to the south), or Miami (about 100 miles) via Keys Shuttle, rental car or your own. If you have access to a private plane or charter, Marathon Airport is 3 miles away.

We loved the condo so much! So many of the places we have rented before in this area are quaint but typically very dated. This unit is updated and fresh and comfortable and was perfect for our family for the week. The added benefit of beach chairs and floats, etc in the trunk downstairs was awesome (to not have to travel with that stuff). Swimming pool was clean and refreshing as well. Would definitely stay here every time we come down from now on! Owners very accessible and even checked on us via email to make sure we had everything we needed.
Thank you for the compliments on our condo. My husband did a great job on renovations. I just added a few suggestions and finishing touches. We aim to please. You were fantastic guest - the first I’ve had check in and be in Key West the very same night - FUN! You were very pleasant to communicate with and left the place immaculate. We’d welcome you back in a heartbeat! We do hope you’ll visit again!

We enjoyed our stay very much the condo is very clean and updated we would certainly st there again.
We enjoyed our stay at Gulf Pointe II, and we are looking forward to going back again next year.
Amazing, as always!!
This is the best rental condo ever! Jan and Ed make everything seamless, and are quick to respond to any questions or needs. Condo has great bay views, comfortable furnishings and a comprehensively equipped kitchen. For those with boats a dock is available. Wide array of excellent restaurants nearby. Hate giving such a good review for fear it will not be available next time we want it, but cannot tell a lie!
Tarpon Run provided the perfect spot for our keys vacation.
Fabulous gulf and sunset views, numerous ammenities such as well-stocked kitchen, comfortable furniture, updated appliances, fishing poles, bait freezer, heated pool, everything was clean and well cared for.
First off Jan was easy and a pleasure to deal with. The condo has wonderful views, you can fish from the dock and walk to restaurants. There is minimal damage from Irma. The condo is spotless and has everything you would need during your stay. The only regret is not staying longer! Slice of paradise. Thanks Jan!
Thank you for your lovely review! It was so nice being able to meet you. We’d love to have you visit again. You were a delight!

Our recent stay at Tarpon Run could not have been better. The location on Vaca Cut overlooking the Gulf of Mexico was perfect for us. We brought our boat and were able to keep it at the beautiful dock which is parallel to the current. Fresh water is available at the dock as is a fish cleaning station. The condo is updated and beautiful. The kitchen is really nice with brand new appliances and fully stocked. The condo/association owners all went out of their way to make us feel welcome which is not always the case in other locations. The pool is heated and was awesome. All and all we loved our stay and would recommend highly. Will definitely be back! Thank you Jan and Ed!
