Clean, Neat, Spacious, with so many many household items already there to utilize. We put our clothes in the closet and went to the grocery store to stock up on food supplies. This was so relaxing we felt at home the entire time we were there (two weeks). You cant beat the location and accomodations. Having a choice of beach memberships was also great. Patty is very freindly and professional to work with, the ease of her agreement and getting on board upon arrival is also very commendable!

- centrally located in the keys.
- Inch Beach doesn't get any closer than our rental: " right across from the rental and easy to walk both to and from" especially with your children or elderly guests!
- the Cabana Club does give "access to a pool" so any rental without a private pool is thrilled to have this amenity for our guests to use, especially children! Even if a rental in Marathon doesn't have a private pool, their guests will drive over to our Island to use the CC! Our KCB guests luckily have a short walk or call their shuttle service for easy pick up and drop off!

- house has everything: plenty of kitchen gadgets, lots of coolers, a Pack 'n Play for small children, linens including those rare beach towels, digital control washer/dryer across from kitchen, 2013 grill, beach chairs at Inch Beach, and a few toys for the beach/pool.

-An ice machine is a very rare amenity for most rentals, just pick up a bag throughout our area.
-Very few rentals offer this keyless entry- so don't worry about losing or misplacing a key (great for up to 6 persons)
- Bugs (ants, etc.) are the local pets of the Keys! Luckily our 24/7 City licensed Property Manager Bambi to the rescue. We professionally treated this problem, at their request once they checked out!

And thanks for this Erinn: "Overall this was a very positive experience and an enjoyable stay in the middle keys."

So if you aren't already convinced to BOOK Keys Ocean Drive, please read our additional 51 Five Star (+ now 2 Four Star) Guest Reviews!

Thanks Chuck & Freve, I appreciate your compliments and I try really hard to be responsive/quick as well as polite/resourceful!

This retired couple drove down to the Keys from OHIO U with their doggie, Millie. We welcome them back for future vacations in paradise!

The Island walking/biking/jogging path is just at the end of our driveway and convenient for great dog walks to the City Park as well as Sunset Park- both doggie friendly! As well as biking to the CC swim club (or call and have their shuttle pick you up and drop you off with any beach stuff!), 4 restaurants, golf/tennis courts, marina or to US 1/Marathon...

And thanks for commenting about our location which is amazing with beautiful views across from the ocean and in the rear down the entire boating canal toward Marathon! These are both rare for house rentals with boat docks on our Island of KCB!

Only leave our Island for 2 grocery & 3 drug stores in Marathon, less than 5 miles away!

FYI- our 2 beach memberships are not doggie friendly- Inch Beach nor Cabana Club....

And below is what they wrote when I asked them about their bike rental experience:

"Freve and I rented them from the store named Wheels 2 Go.They are at 5994 Overseas Hwy., Marathon . Their phone number is305 289-4279.

Within hours after contracting with them at their store, they delivered the bicycles to the house. Likewise they efficiently picked up the bicycles on the last day. Both of the bikes were in excellent condition & worked well, although I had to tighten the seat several times online.

We would highly recommend them as people to deal with. They also rent kayaks, & their prices for kayaks & bikes seem to be the most reasonable in the neighborhood. They also have an excellent tour of Boot Key nature preserve that is about 2 to 3 hours long. Although we ended up not going on the tour, they were very helpful with information."
