“a wonderful place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

What a great place! The beautiful mangroves preserve the natural habitat for fish and birds. Bill is so respectful of the natural landscape of the area. The deck was a perfect location to relax, enjoy meals, watch the wild life and take in the ocean breeze. Kayaking the channel was great fun and just a short paddle to the ocean. The house has all of the necessary amenities. Bill provided us with delicious recommendations for the best local restaurants. All in all a great place for a vacation get away. Thanks Bill !

“Great location and superb property.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Like the previous review I have never previously rented via a web site particularly abroad as we live in the UK. Bill was great, answered all e mails questions quicky and helped me overcome the problem of paying from overseas.

The house is in a lovely quiet location, spotlessly clean and with useful amenities including canoes and bikes. Bill left a personalised note for us on arrival with local tips.

Overall we had a superb holiday and the only additional attraction which we would have liked is a pool although no doubt this would affect the very reasonable rates. Thanks again Bill.

“Just right for our family vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We had a great time! I was a bit hesitant when when we first found this vacation home. I had never rented a vacation home through a website but Bill was easy to work with. He was prompt to answer all emails and phone calls before and during our vacation. He left a note detailing all we needed to know about the home and it's amminities. The property was nicer than described on the Trip Adviser website. It was private, but close to all the things you want to do in the Keys. We caught fish off the dock, kyaked in the canel, went to the beach, chartered a boat and caught our dinner, and just relaxed on the incredible decks. The boys also had a great time playing ping pong at the end of the day.
I would recommend this place to anybody.

“Great location, nice, well-equipped vacation home”

We (family with college aged kids) enjoyed our week in Marathon. It was our first trip to the Keys and Marathon was a great location. There were fun things to do and see very near by and day trips to Key Largo and Key West were also doable. Bill was a great owner to work with. His house is clean and comfortable. It had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The kitchen is well equipped. He had beach chairs and bikes he permitted us to take to the beach. Sombrero beach is a beautiful beach just down the street a few minutes on the bike/walking path (a bit longer by kayak as we found out!) If you enjoy nature/history, check out Crane Point Hammock at the opposite end of Sombrero Beach Rd

“Wonderful”

We spent a week here and it wasn't enough. The house is spacious, comfortable and in a great location. You can see sunrises and sunsets from the house unless you walk to Sombrero Beach and watch the most wonderful sunsets on the beach. I recommend this house to anyone looking for a Fla Keys adventure.

What a great time my family enjoyed here. Everything was built, set-up, and thought-of with details in mind. Bill was a very friendly host. We could tell he wanted us to feel at home, and we were!
The manatee at the dock was the icing on the cake. Bill, we know you had him brought over just for us!
Thanks again for a wonderful time.
