About Craig Roe

Me and my Family Purchased this Home in 2015 after falling in love with the Keys and the Home Town feel of the Marathon Area.

Craig Roe purchased this house in 2015

Why Craig Roe chose Central Florida Keys

We chose the Central Keys because of the fact that we are close to everything from here. and hour to Key West and an hour to Key Largo, right on 7 Mile Bridge and 15 minutes from Bahia Honda Beach, and 2 miles from Sombrero Beach (2 of the nicest beach in all the Keys IMO)

and only minutes by boat to the amazing "Sombrero Reef", The Home of North America's Only Living Coral Barrier Reef, And The Third Largest Coral Barrier Reef in the World!

What makes this house unique

Our home is located is a great neighborhood, a short drive to key west


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Property was well appointed and exactly as presented. Property manager responsive and attentive. The best was the ability to rent the boat with the house! Caught enough fish and lobster to enjoy dinner a few nights!

Located perfectly in the Keys so you can go either north or south in about an hour and enjoy everything! Will definitely rent this home again if we plan to vacation in the keys!!!!

Thanks again for a fantastic week!!

Beautiful and great location

  • 5 of 5

This place was beyond beautiful and had everything we needed for a great vacation. We had three families, including kids ranging from 4 to 10yrs old.The layout of the house was perfect.... the kids room had its own TV and then the rec room right off of the kids room having a TV and futon was great as well. The kids congregated in their own area while the adults could take over the TV in the main living room. (the big red bean bags were a plus... very comfortable)

We did a few day trips including Key West and a half day of Snorkeling/Diving, and Bahia Honda Beach. We loved having a pool right there so we could relax and the kids could be entertained. We had a few days of just hanging out by the pool for sure. (just make sure you bring bug spray)

The location was perfect. Marathon Key has everything you need, restaurants, grocery stores, diving centers...etc.

The ONLY negative thing was a few minor issues that we had to reach out to Blake to come and fix. (one toilet needed a piece in order to flush, the antennae on one of the tv's was disconnected somehow so the kids tv wasn't working, the bedroom door lock got jammed) Blake did come and fix right away though. Of course we wish there weren't any issues but it happens, we know. I still give this 5 stars.

I would definitely come back and also recommend this place to anyone I know.

Turned a skeptic into a believer

  • 5 of 5

This was our first attempt at booking a vacation rental to do some fishing. You hear the horror stories of people renting places that do not look like the pictures or claim to have the amenities they list. The owner Craig assured me I would fall in love with the place when we arrived.

He was right, we fell in love with it. We rented his boat as well, and he hooked us up with a captain to take us out to the Hump and do some fishing.

The house is HUGE, lots of room in the common area. The pool was a nice change, its not a chlorine pool which was a surprise. My son doesn't deal well with chlorinated pools and he was thrilled he could swim. A lot of thought went into the design of the common areas.

We will be planning our next vacation at this same house. Thank you.

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

Dolphin Oasis was like having our own private resort. Every detail was well thought out and executed in the planning of this property. When we vacation, we usually rent a house and use it as a home base for our adventures. At Dolphin Oasis we became homebodies. The grounds and the pool are lovely, and we were all perfectly content to relax by the pool, put our toes in the sand, and play chess or checkers all day. There were plenty of wonderful restaurants close by, and the grocery store was just up the street. We also rented the boat, and went out daily to fish or snorkel. Also, I cannot say enough good things about the property manager Blake. He was a great guy and a great resource. He made sure that everything was perfect!

The house was well stocked, including a variety of spices in the kitchen and laundry detergent in the laundry room. With shopping so close, I recommend checking out what is available in the house before stocking up. There were tons of pool toys and beach toys available from buckets to pool noodles to floats and life jackets. The kayaks that came with the rental were great, and my girls enjoyed taking them out. The towels provided were of good quality and well cared for, as were the sheets and blankets. All the beds were comfortable. This house have every amenity, and I would recommend renting it 100%.
