Wellcome to paradise

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful place, it was like paradise for all of us! The best place for recovering and for relaxing. And also for discovering (such a lot of different species of fish)! Standing on the dock is like standing in the middle of a very big aquarium.

Our favourite place: laying in this big hammock and watching either sunrise or sunset.

The listing photos reflect exactly the appearance. The property was very clean and well-maintained and the owner was always very kind.

I, for sure, would recommend this property to a friend or relative.

Hidden Gem Great for Fishing

  • 4 of 5

This house is a hidden gem on a street with mansions. Down the block from Marker 88, you could easily walk to get a bite to eat or to listen to some music. Great location in the keys. Great fishing off the dock. We were visited regularly by a six foot manatee and its calf. The house comes with everything you need and is very cozy.

The owner was very responsive to any questions or concerns we had. He was very easy to deal with
