We had the pleasure of staying in Villa #43 for the month of January and although it was a working vacation, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. John was exceptional and fulfilled every request that we had. The Villa was gorgeous, clean, and roomy. It was well stocked, even with a Margarita Maker! The view from our porch was fantastic and got even better at sunset. Indigo Reef was beautifully maintained with lots of palm trees and plants in a quiet yet friendly atmosphere. We hope to return next year.

Wonderful town home, great view, great amenities

April 20, 2014

We stayed at #43 for a week in early April 2014. We were in Florida for our son's wedding and made a vacation week out of it. This townhouse has a fantastic view, the owners have decorated it beautifully, and it had superior towels, sheets, even many toiletries supplied. The pool was beautiful, everything is clean and new. We enjoyed a visit from a manatee one afternoon in the canal right in front of us. Wonderful place, I would love to return!

Fabulous Indigo Reef #59

February 17, 2014

My husband and I just had to escape the bitter cold and unending snow in Ct. We just couldn't stand it one more day., so we escaped. How very fortunate we were to be able to book a flight and beautiful condo in Marathon, Fl on short notice. I received a call back almost immediately upon emailing an inquiry. Although we had been to Marathon before we had never seen this property at Indigo Reef. How very lucky we were to find it. Condo #59 far exceeded our expectations. Sparkling clean, beautifully furnished, lovely thick towels, fully stocked kitchen, gorgeous gorgeous view right out onto the Gulf, manicured grounds, huge clean warm pool with friendly people everywhere. Everyone we met were happy to be at Indigo Reef. We thought we would go off property and explore all of Marathon. No way! We couldn't get off our upstairs deck. There was a beautiful tall palm tree next to our deck. We were so happy to have a little shade from it in the late afternoon. Plenty of sun, if we wanted it, soft breezes and the beautiful view and did I mention the sunsets? I have never seen such beautiful sunsets. We have never taken so many pictures of sunsets. The master bedroom has large French doors out onto the deck, a king size white bed with fluffy white linens and soft pillows. The master bath has double sinks, granite countertops, and a georgous shower with thick glass door, very elegant. We hated to leave.

Home Away From Home

August 21, 2013

I would like to thank Mr and Mrs Zito for sharing their beautiful home with us. We arrived to the home to find a wonderful welcome basket waiting for us filled with plenty of goodies. The home was very clean, well stocked with all the basic necessities, and was beautifully decorated. The views of the boat docks, the bay, and the direct sunsets from the patio were spectacular. Having the boat dock immediately accessible right outside the patio door was a huge plus since I had brought my boat along. The pool was huge and the kids had a great time there. Everything is located nearby, grocery stores, bait shops, boat and kayak rentals, dive shops, etc.. The Zitos were always available to answer any questions or concerns we may have had. Other than for a very weak WiFi signal everything turned out great. We were already thinking of next year to plan a month vacation instead of just a week. We had a great time. Thanks again.

Fantastic Vacation

August 17, 2013

My family and I enjoyed this rental very much for our week long vacation during lobster season. The home was new, clean, and well kept. We arrived to a welcome basket with wine and cookies. The property was very well maintained. Easy access to the boat, dock was well protected from open water, immediate access to the gulf. Sunsets on the back porch were the highlight of our days. Short walk to a great pool area. Owners were responsive to any questions and were readily accessible. I look forward to staying here again in the years to come and will recommend this owner to friends looking to vacation in Marathon.

Fabulous Relaxing Vacation with Amazing Views!

July 2, 2013

The owners were such wonderful people to work with and have such a well appointed rental property. The villa felt like a home away from home for the kids and us. Lots of space, an amazing sunset view, comfortable beds, t.v.'s for everyone and a well-equipped kitchen. They truly thought of everything that would make renters comfortable! The Margarita Machine was a real plus and the welcome basket was so sweet. The location was ideal and it was convenient to so many things. Capt. Hook's offers boat rentals, etc. The 7 mile bridge, Bahia Honda State Park and snorkeling trips are just a short drive away. Be sure to fit in a beach day at Sombrero Beach. Small, but lovely. You can snorkel there, but the water was a bit murky. There is a great playground for little kids, bathrooms, and volleyball courts. We spent Father's Day there. Key West is about an hour drive. I went there to take photos one day and the whole family spent the entire next day checking it out. Being centrally located is a real perk. We met friends at Islamorada Fish Company for dinner one night. They drove back to see the place and now want to rent villa 29, too. The only negative was that the Indigo Reef wifi was a bit slow, but if you are looking for a restful vacation spot, this is the place! It appeared that there may have been separate wifi in the rental, but we never inquired because we were enjoying other things. The kids and friends went paddle boarding, fished, relaxed at the pool, played some volleyball on the grassy areas and we even rented a boat one day. You will love that the slip is virtually in front of the place! If you travel in summer expect it to be hot and humid, and pack plenty of sunscreen and bug spray. From the moment we walked in the door, our jaws dropped at the amazing view we enjoyed the entire trip. Gorgeous! I took tons of photos so we could remember what a wonderful time we had in the Keys.

I wish I could give it 10 stars!!

The pictures online don't do this property justice! It was perfect in every way. It was modern, tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean and stocked with everything you might need for your stay!! We loved fishing off the docks, bbq's by the water, drinks and sunsets on the deck...I could go on and on! Also, the owners were great from beginning to end! Thank you John and Judi for your hospitality and the use of your beautiful home in paradise!!

Can't Wait to Go Back!

May 21, 2013

We left 2 days ago, and wish we didn't have to, as we were so comfortable in this paradise. The unit was well appointed, very clean, and top notch in every way. The welcome goodie basket was a nice surprise. This property is convenient to our favorite dive shop, grocery stores, the beach, great seafood shops and restaurants. We enjoyed grilling our fish dockside, and watching the beautiful sunsets from the dining room table. The pool was beautiful, and we enjoyed taking walks or fishing along the docks at night. The neighborhood kitty cats were friendly, and visited every day to say hello. The jasmine was blooming and the fragrance was so nice. Landscaping was gorgeous, and very well maintained. The owners were super to work with, and made every effort to accommodate our wishes and address any concerns. We would not hesitate to recommend this property, and can't wait to go back!

Welcome To Paradise!

March 26, 2013

Paradise it sure is. What a great place to enjoy a relaxed winter vacation. The villa was super clean with all of the amenities of home. We wanted for nothing. The owners welcomed us with an extensive gift basket that was over the top. You can tell that in every room, the owners paid close attention to the smallest of details. With such close proximity to anything that we wanted or needed: public beach, wonderful restaurants, supermarkets, sightseeing, fishing or rent a boat.....its all within easy reach. Spent a day at the beach with its breath-taking turquoise colored water. But most of our was spent relaxing and reading poolside and having a cocktail on the deck watching each evening's marvelous sunset with the fishing boats coming and going. We highly recommend this villa and would rent it again.

Sunset Paradise

March 7, 2013

Spectacular views from every room with a daily sunset happy hour. This was a warm break from winter. Our family vacation was filled with outdoor adventures and good food. a perfect location!! the owners were helpful in their recommendations and providing an immaculate Keys resort. This was paradise right down to the classic relaxed decor and the breezes from the bay at your doorstep. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a getaway with easy access to all the Keys has to offer.

Loved It! Great Place and Owners!!!

February 27, 2013

We would HIGHLY recommend this rental! The owners were great to work with from start to finish! They provided an extremely quick response when we had a question from the time we inquired about the rental to the day we left. They surprised us with a wonderful gift basket upon arrival with many little goodies that wow'd our entire family! Unsolicited, they even helped us out with a list of restaurants along the way because they knew we were travelling at that time of day...and even highlighted the ones that our children might like. They went so above and beyond! The location was just perfect. We were traveling to the Keys for the first time and Marathon is perfectly situated right in the middle of Key Largo and Key West. The resort itself was incredible! From the moment you enter the beautiful gate and meander along the landscaped drive you feel like you have been transported to a luxurious island get-away. The architecture of the townhomes has so much character and are very well maintained. The unit itself is extremely clean and very tastefully decorated. Our family of 5 (Mom, Dad, 14, 12, & 10) fit very comfortably...we could have even fit Grandma & Grandpa without a problem. The living space of about 1600+ sqft was even further enhanced with a wonderful porch facing the water and porches off of each bedroom. At one point, I was putting away dishes and looked out to see a boat coming in to dock at sunset thinking, WOW...I don't even mind doing dishes when I have a view like this! A particular and silly highlight for all of us was the Margarita Maker! We were able to have a wonderful beverage each day without breaking the bank of having to order at a restaurant. The kids very much enjoyed the non-coholic treat and my 14 year old became a pro at making them. This was quite hit! I felt the pricing for the week was right in line with others available - I did hours of research before booking...and was delighted that this was the right choice! This is an A+ stay that exceeded our expectations and we look forward to going back!

A Family Escape to paradise....

February 7, 2013

This was great getaway from Miami, with an at home feel. The place has a wonderful Key West feel and spectacular view. You are able to kick back and relax with all the amenities of home. Our favorite part was grilling hamburgers on the outdoor grill and making Smore's for desert. We loved fishing off the peer and relaxing by the pool. This is a great place to escape, disconnect and relax!
