We purchased this house after renting in the Keys for many years, we got tired of looking so hard for good quality, clean homes to rent which were and are still very difficult to find. If you are looking for something 'nice' that the actual house looks 'better' than the pictures, that will provide for your family and friends a vacation where memories will be made, that will last a lifetime and that is impeccably clean inside-out, then this is your rental.

5 girlfriends snuck away for a long weekend retreat to celebrate a birthday. The house had all that we needed! We loved all of the "extras" including the Gheenoe, the kayak, the bikes, the hammocks. They made the trip extra special. The house was super clean, and we are tough critics! A wonderful time and easy access to fun activities, restaurants, beaches, etc. nearby

Just Right

April 13, 2014

We were three adults and three children. There is a master with a bath and two bedrooms that share a bath. The accommodations were, I thought very upscale for a rental. The home is finished and furnished quite tastefully. They did not spare expense when it came to amenities.The kitchen is finished with beautiful granite countertops and there is a large refrigerator. We took two boats, a 16 and 21 and there was adequate parking in the lot and on the canal for them. The canal was very pleasant and didnt vary in depth ( no tidal change). We stepped right onto the boats. There is a large icemaker in the laundry room. I've been to the Keys numerous times on fishing trips and stayed in cheaper rentals and motels because all we wanted was to have a fishing base of operations. The house is much more than a place to stay when you fish; it was an enjoyable place to be. It's own destination. The streets and canals surrounding this house vary with some extremely expensive homes to the North and some less expensive homes just South of the rental. So, it was, as Goldilocks says "just right". Orlando was very accommodating in the arrangements, accepting a check, and returned my deposit promptly. I would stay there again. Brett Wilson

Just perfect!

March 26, 2013

This could not have been a more perfect week at Villa Marlin! We were a group of four (2 couples), and what fun we had! This beautiful home is well-equipped and beautifully decorated. The pride of ownership is obvious with all the personal amenities, photos, wall art, etc. Villa Marlin is located in a beautiful waterfront neighborhood. The gated private beach is stunningl and the water is crystal blue. Orlando and his family supplied us with bicycles (each with their own name & story behind the name), a kayak and a gheenoe. We were grateful for the use of all these recreational toys! This upscale neighborhood was ideal for my morning runs...We met many interesting and friendly neighbors eager to give restaurant/fishing/shopping advice. This home has a great aura to it... from the moment you enter you know that you made the right choice! I had only 1 issue (if you could call it that), which was my high allergy to scents. The linen/towel closest and drawers were lined with scented sachet packets and were overwhelming. I simply relocated them into a plastic bag, and re-washed a few towels in unscented detergent and used those. We are so happy to have stayed in the Abella home! Thank you Orlando and family! We hope to return in the future and build on more great memories! The Dayton & Salerno family
