“Imagine having an entire island all to yourself. My family just experienced something we thought you had to be rich for.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2011 for a stay in September 2011

We were hesitant to book this vacation because it sounded too good to be true. I never would have believed that we could rent a 2 bedroom home on the water, with a boat and an island for under $2500 for the entire week. 7 nights. We didn’t have to share the island with anyone. As far as the island goes, it was amazing. We spent a ton of time there. There was a nice little cabin we could eat in or play cards in when we wanted to get in out of the sun. There is a bathroom on the island. There was lots to do as well. We used the free kayaks, we went fishing and caught quite a bit of fish, we swam and snorkeled around the island and seen sting rays, lobster, crabs, etc.., we also seen dolphin swimming out a little ways. There is a cool Iguana on the island. He is pretty big and just hangs out. He will take off if you approach him, but if you leave him be, he will get pretty close. As far as the house, it is very nice. It really has some cool décor. The second bedroom has 2 full beds in it so my boys each got their own bed. There was a sofa sleeper in the living room, but we didn’t need it because of the 2 beds. The boat was nice. Probably about a 16’ motor boat with a canopy top. We also spent a day in Key West. Duval Street was fun. The kid’s enjoyed the aquarium and Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum. Marathon also has some great beaches to go to. We will be going back next year and staying here again for sure.
