We didn't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Location

Activity and Interests

Sombrero Beach is just yards away. Even though this home has it's own

beach, Sombrero Beach is a pleasant walk away. Beautifully maintained

with play areas for kids. The Sombrero Beach area is a great spot to

ride bikes... lots of quiet residential neighborhoods and meandering

streets.

Marathon and the Middle Keys offers shops and services including two grocery stores, Publix and Winn Dixie, 2 drug stores, CVS and Walgreen’s, a KMART and many other shops, bait and tackle stores, gifts shops and a wide selection of restaurants all within a few miles drive.

Like beaches? Sombrero Beach is just yards away and Coco Plum Beach is about 4 miles. Bahia Honda State Park is about a 20 minute drive south.

Other attractions: The Dolphin Research Center is located on Grassy Key and is always a fun spot to stop in for their tours or schedule a swim with the dolphin. The Natural History Museum at Crane Point provides a look at Keys history, sea life, touch tanks for kids and nature walks through the Hammock (also a great gift store).

Key West is a great day trip and about 1.25 hours south.

Boat rental companies are available in the Middle Keys and most of them will let you keep the boat at your dock for the week (some will even deliver and pick up the boat!).

Other Activities in the Middle Keys:

*Diving

*Snorkeling

*Golfing

*Fishing

*Boat Rentals

*Tennis

*Bike Riding

*Jet Skiing

*Scuba Diving

*Restaurants & Shops

*Parasailing

... all located very nearby!
