About Kim Erickson

I love traveling and meeting new people. My first property that I owned and later decided to rent I truly love the peacefulness of the home.After renting and working with my renters I realized how satisfying it was. I have always enjoyed the personal connection with others when all went well and there voice or smile expresses it.

Kim Erickson purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Kim Erickson chose Central Florida Keys

Well where I live it gets very cold most Winters and I just decided to start looking for a place on day. I looked for some time and finally decided on this peaceful abode. I was hoping my son who would be a junior in High School would say Great! but at his age I realized that would be scary, so I understood. Being maybe a block from this adorable new school it was worth a try. Well now I'm going to be stuck all Winter in the cold North.Dreaming of all the fun others are having.

What makes this townhome unique

The pool is heated The finest most comfortable mattresses I could find. Top of the line: TV's high speed internet and cable. Music pandora. King in one bedroom and Queen in the other.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I caught two good sized fish right at the dock and filet them on the table

by the water. My mom cooked them on the electric grill. You can hear fish jump at night on the screened in porch, very quiet. Everything is close the

grocery store lots of restaurants even Walgreens.

You can ride your bike or walk to the beach just down the road, and that same path is lighted at night. Five star for sure!

My mom liked it because it is very private and has Palm trees around the front and back by the pool.

Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great for my husband and I. The neighborhood was nice and quiet and the view from the dock was beautiful!! It was our first week long visit to The Keys and this was the perfect location for sightseeing and day trips to Key West and all of the attractions along the way. We enjoyed our breakfast every morning on the screened in patio and spent a couple of days relaxing in the pool. It was so convenient to have a washer and dryer too - we didn't have to take home a bunch of dirty clothes! Kim took care of all of our needs and was quick to respond to any questions we had. We had a wonderful stay!

5 STARS!!!

  • 5 of 5

I don't think my family and I could have picked a more perfect place to stay for our first trip to the Keys! First of all, LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION... it's close to EVERYTHING! Just a mile or so from one of the best beaches in the Keys in one direction and in the other direction you are close to grocery stores, souvenir shops and restaurants. The house was clean and well equipped with everything you could possibly need for a family of four on vacation. The open floor plan was great for us. Kids watching tv from the breakfast bar while my hubby and I prepared meals. Having a private pool was definitely a plus when coming back from bike rides and long hot days at the beach. The morning sunrise from the dock (of course with coffee in hand) was amazing. The neighbors were all friendly even though we really didn't see them that much. Kim is excellent to communicate with and when we needed to get the roll-away bed for my daughter to sleep on, she was prompt to get it taken care of. I would definitely stay at this house again the next time our family plans a trip to the Keys.

Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here in Marathon. This place had everything we needed. Loved the screen porch which was a plus because it seems like the week we were there, the bugs were out at night. It's very close to everything! Kim was great to deal with and was very attentive to our needs. Perfect place to rent!

Awesome! 5 Star Review.

  • 5 of 5

Owner very responsive to inquiries. We enjoyed our visit immensely. Accomodations wonderful, beautiful home, very clean and spacious. Patio and Pool exquisite. Enjoyed views from the dock. Had a lot of Pelican and Iguana visitors that were so much fun to watch. Would definitely recommend. Look forward to a return visit. Have passed the word to my many friend in VA.

Enjoyed the area events Seafood Festival, long walks every night on the walking bridge to Pigeon Key, Snorkeling at many areas Sombrero Beach, Bahia Honda, and in Key West at Fort Zachary Taylor. Also Snorkeling at Sombrero Lighthouse and Fishing Trips out of vendors at 7 mile Bridge priced very resonable. The "Key Lime Coladas" at the Island Grill were the best. Gyros at the 7 mile bridge restraint were the best. Location of home for access to all of this was the best!

We just spent over two weeks here and enjoyed every day!! Sitting on the lanai

every morning just was peaceful and relaxing. The home is well equipped..once we found the remotes for the fans!! It's very private but the neighbors were very friendly. They even let me borrow their kayak!!! Also, the location is terrific for access to the beach(one mile walk), shopping, and restaurants. We ate our keys favorites: lobster Reuben, conch fritters, key lime pie. Sadly it's already booked for next year or we would have come back

Sombrero beach is two minutes away by car. A beautiful beach and place for those who would like to bike or walk. Excellent paths to take, playground for children and clean bathrooms. And a beautiful Beach too! My place is a Town home but it is landscaped to be very private, in a quiet in a wonderful neighborhood. Bikes for rent close by, they will deliver.
