traveler reviews for this marathon house rental

We didn't want to leave

Review submitted: September 13, 2013   Date of arrival: August 31, 2013

We stayed in this fabulous home with another couple. The house was better than expected. Enough room to never feel crowded. The beds and furniture were all very comfortable. There were a couple of minor problems (ants in the kitchen and the hot tub didn't work when we arrived)both were taken care of in a very reasonable amount of time. Oh, and having the hot tub on the screened back porch made it comfortable even when the no see ems were out.

The house was lovely but the outside was special. It's landscaped in a way that makes it feel isolated but doesn't distract from the beautiful views; hearing the breeze in the multiple palms was peaceful and soothing. Boot Key, the mangrove island on the opposite shore was perfect for kayaking and we were lucky enough to discover an amazing tunnel through the grove leading to an open lagoon. We also kayaked the open water with no problems. Biking the island was safe, fun and easy with Sombrero beach being a favorite (even Publics was a relatively easy bike ride.)

Wildlife was abundant; the resident Iguana was a surprise treat. He's young and not at all aggressive but a ton of fun to watch and photograph. (We scared him far more than he did us.)

There's plenty of GREAT places to eat a short drive away. Don't miss the Sun Set Grill (amazing burgers!) located just before the 7 mile bridge. You'll love the atmosphere and the super friendly wait staff! Sparky's at Key Colony Beach was also a favorite for their fish tacos. It was an easy drive to Key West where we spent the day biking and shopping but we were all very glad to get back to our "home." We also did a bike tour of Big Pine Key looking for the deer but actually saw more when we were driving around. (Be careful, they tend to run out into the road!) We also kayaked Bahia Honda, the water was beautiful!

The only thing I regret is that I didn't have enough time to really enjoy the beach that was the entire backyard. Another week would have been perfect.

great vacation spot

Review submitted: January 11, 2011   Date of arrival: December 26, 2010

Our family stayed here for a week. The house is cute, has everything you could ask for and the location couldn't be better. The beach area and fishing off of the dock kept my two kids busy the entire time. Pool and hot tub were great, only issue is we paid to have the pool heated and it never worked properly during our stay (which was during a cold snap in the Keys), so the pool was freezing. Being next to the park was great for the kids too. Close to Publix and HWY1. Loved every minute of our excursion to the Keys. We took a day trip to Key West and another trip up to Islamorada. Fun was had by all and the house kept our family of four happy.
