Another great week at Tiki Time.

  • 4 of 5

Returned to Tiki Time for 2nd time- had another great experience. Tiki huts are great for shaded relaxing by the water. Accomodations are fantastic- clean, nicely decorated. Enjoy the benefits with being at KCB. Will definitely be back.

If you have a desire to go to Marathon, go to Tiki Time. It is a great place to stay. Marc and Lynn have done a great job with their place.

Perfect for taking in the the Keys!

  • 5 of 5

We found the rental unit to be great and more than meeting our needs during our week visit. We brought bikes, kayaks, and a boat. The dock on the canal for the boat made using our boat so easy during our stay. The fishing cleaning station was great with good lighting at night to clean fish. The grapefruit on the tree in the yard were fantastic and such a nice treat during our stay. Only one very small problem during our stay and Mark provided guidance to quickly to address our need. We will definetly stay again at this unit to take in some Florida sunshine. Thanks Mark and Lynn for allowing others to enjoy you little piece of paradise.

We loved Tiki Time!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in the Fla Keys and Tiki Time. From the moment we arrived, we knew we made the right choice. The accommodations were great and the place was super clean! My father-in-law loves to fish and was pleasantly surprised to find bait in the outside freezer so he could fish immediately and then replace later. Being on the canal was peaceful and the sunsets were beautiful! The pool and beach access was a block away and the staff was very accommodating. We found great restaurants all over the area and enjoyed being in close proximity to them. We would definitely return to Tiki Time on our next visit!

Great Place, A+++

  • 5 of 5

I selected this place based on location and reviews and i was very happy I did. It is in a central location with ability to do day trips to any keys (we visited key west, bahia honda state park and islamorada on a separate days), great snorkeling tours (starfish snorkeling) right on the Marathon key, secluded and nice neighbourhood, great private beach with some local snorkeling opportunities (large parrot fish, skates and even manatee hanging by), house is spacious, clean and nicely decorated, cozy tiki hut to sit on a water and watch few gorgeous iguanas visiting on the deck and and boats passing by, its all just good. Will be back when visiting Keys again.

Owner's Response: We are delighted you enjoyed your stay ! The "great private beach" you mention, inch beach, is a real gem in our area. We were very fortunate to have great neighbors that sold us their membership when they left last year. There is a waiting to purchase these memberships. Fortunately for our guests, our membership transfers to you during your visit, and you have the use of this exclusive beach, only blocks from your Tiki "home" away from home ! The beach area also includes a fresh water shower, a charcoal BBQ grill, and several picnic tables underneath Tiki huts for shade. Great place to picnic and BBQ !!

enjoyed our stay

  • 4 of 5

This is our 3rd year going to the keys for lobster season, and we have stayed in several VRBO properties in key colony. We were pleased with the location of the duplex, the trailer parking and overall furnishings in Tiki Time 1. We would definately rent this property again if the owners made some repairs and replaced the mattress. We brought our boat and found the cleats on the dock needed to be replaced and secured to the pilings or dock. The light fixture, fan and switch in the out door tiki hut was broken and not functioning so we couldn't use it in the evening. The king size mattress in the master bedroom was worn out and sagged so much in the middle you could see the valley in the middle of the mattress when it had the bedspread on it. Two people can not sleep comfortably as you roll to the middle. The furniture in the living room was very nice and the sofa was very comfortable as my husband and I took turns sleeping on the sofa when the mattress became to uncomfortable. The kitchen area was very nice. We ate out and didn't cook during our week stay so I wouldn't know how well stocked the cabinets are with dishes and pans, but they appeared to have the basics. A very nice addition was the bait freezer in the carport. The property was in good condition and the interior was clean.

Owner's Response: The mattress is in great condition, and the Tiki lights/fan were working. If only the guests would have phoned us - as we encourage in our Welcome binder and pre-arrival instructions, we could have reminded them where the Tiki switch was (by the sliding glass door) !! We also would have come over immediately if they reported a problem with the mattress. We pride ourselves on providing good quality mattresses and bedding. It is important to us that our guests have a good nights sleep !! As it turns out, the mattress is in great condition, but evidently prior guests had such excessive weight on the bed that the middle support for the King bed broke !! Since the prior guests had just checked out and hadn't reported a problem, we were unaware there was a problem. It wasn't until after these guests left that they reported a problem with the mattress. We immediately investigated. When we looked under the bed, the problem was obvious. Imagine our surprise to see the 5 inch metal supports in the middle of the bed, bent !! Within half an hour we installed new supports, and the next guests checking in have been sleeping soundly on the luxurious master king bed mattress. We appreciate that some guests do not want to be a "bother", but you have planned your vacation in advance and set aside this time "for you"! No concern is too small, even if you are having trouble with the TV remote, or finding a fan switch. And especially if a basic furnishing is not working properly. Please presume that everything is working and should be working, and CALL IMMEDIATELY if not. We are happy to talk with you, especially at the beginning of your much needed vacation, to make sure everything is to your satisfaction for your entire stay. In this case, a 5 minute phone call and 1/2 hour handyman visit would have resolved all concerns and provided our usual five star vacation experience. Sitting out by the canal under the Tiki lights at night is one of the many highlights of this property.
