Relaxing vacation, and outstanding gulf view!

July 16, 2015

We arrived on the 4th of July for the week,boats in tow. The boat launch was only 2 blocks from the house. This home offers plenty of room to park two boat trailers with ease. We watched fireworks from our boat on the first evening and cruised out daily for snorkeling. Easy access to your boat from your private dock. The home was well equipped, comfortable with plenty of room for 6 adults. We enjoyed swimming in the pool to cool down after a hot day on the water. Great local restaurants, Burdines and Key's Fishery. We cooked most meals at home. I cannot say enough about the management, Barbara took care of our every need, and was very attentive. We are all in agreement, we would return and enjoy this home again. Great memories!

Relaxing Week in the Keys

July 7, 2015

Gulfstar was a great house for a first time renter like our family. We had the fabulous views of the gulf and the sunsets were absolutely beautiful. We were able to swim, snorkel, kayak and paddle board in our very own backyard. The house met all of our needs and with a washer and dryer right there, we went home with clean laundry.

Awesome Vacation

June 29, 2015

Just returned home from a week's stay. There were 6 of us and the house was laid out so we all had our own space. The house was clean, nicely furnished and had everything we needed. We usually vacation on the South Carolina coast and wanted to go somewhere where we didn't have to deal with hundreds of other vacationers on the beach. We were not disappointed. It was great to have our own pool and we loved fishing from the dock and playing pool at night in the screened in area by the pool. Our daughter loved napping in the hammock under the palm trees. We rented a boat for two days and went snorkeling at Sombrero reef. The sunsets were amazing. It was about an hour drive to Key West but well worth the drive. The house is conveniently located within a short driving distance to many restaurants if you don't want to cook. We were sad to leave South of Reality to get back to our reality. We are already making plans to return next year.

Great Location

June 13, 2015

The house was a perfect fit for our 2 families. We loved being out on the dock for sunset and getting in some extra fishing off the water. Great location and dock for bringing or renting a boat. It was about the same amount of time to go around the bridge to Oceanside or go through Vaca cut. Everything in the house is nice and its a comfortable place to relax. We would stay there again if we come back to Marathon. The kitchen lacks a few things but they are very minor. I have never been in a rental that didn't have any salt & pepper or dishtowels.

Owner's reply:

Hi Tim:
Thanks for taking the time to write the review, it is appreciated. I wish you would have called us for the kitchen towels and salt and pepper. We would have been more than happy to send it over. Hope you will come back and see us again.
Thanks so much!

A Great Week At The Keys!

Very spacious house with the convenience of the canal and pool. Our friends rented the house next door so we were able to share their view with our awesome house and all of its room! Everything was well maintained,clean and perfect for our family.

Would give it 10 stars!!

June 19, 2014

The pictures do not show how great this house is. The view was stunning. The location was perfect. It was extremely clean. Fully stocked with everything you need for cooking. A huge screened in porch overlooking the ocean for big family dinners. We ate out there every night with the ocean breeze it was never hot. Snorkeling right off the dock. Deep water access to reefs with in minutes. The pool spa was perfect for the kids to splash in during the day and for the adults to relax in in the evening. There was great fishing right off the sea wall, even an underwater dock light that attracted tons of snapper and tarpon at night. A true fishing and snorkeling paradise. Thank you Fred for letting us stay in your beautiful home. My family and I highly recommend staying here and hope to make this a yearly trip!

Fabulous!

March 29, 2014

The property was clean and neat. The outdoor area was beautiful and private. The real estate company was courteous and professional. We were impressed that all linens, even beach towels, were included. Renting the kayaks was a definite plus. The screened area with the pool table was wonderful for our rainy morning. First visit to the Florida Keys, and it won't be the last. Fabulous vacation!
