We had a wonderful week! The house was beautiful and had everything you could possibly want and then some. I would highly recommend this place for a family vacation.

This is a lovely immaculate home, all the amenities of home were provided,. I was able to make some terrific meals in the fully stocked kitchen. The living room is extremely comfortable with lovely views of palm trees and the canal. The beach was at least a 15 minute walk away, it is beautiful with plenty of beach chairs. There are a flight of stairs to get to the house, this was a bit difficult for our 82 year old mother. We enjoyed the kayak and had a wonderful adventure . Overall this is a beautiful vacation home.

Owner's reply: Thank you very much.

“Beautiful Tropical Paradise”

Reviewed 23 Jun 2015

We came down with another couple to spend the week on vacation. The house is very nicely updated with granite counters and well stocked kitchen. We brought our boat down and enjoyed the convenience of the dock and the nearby boat ramp to launch upon arrival. Bonus, there is a commercial size ice maker in the laundry area for our fishing escapades. A canal away from the Gulf and ten minutes by boat to the Atlantic. Another bonus was the private sandy beach which is only five minutes my foot. Kayaks, bikes, waterfront property...who could want anymore! Life is good at Villa Marlin!!

Owner's reply: Thank you very much.

“Villa Marlin”

Reviewed 27 Mar 2015

We were looking for a quiet place to relax and snorkel. The villa is just as lovely as the pictures. Anything you would need is provided. The grounds are shady and comfortable and the location is quiet. We canoed in the canal and saw Manatee. We bicycled to the beach in the evening. We snorkeled all around Islamorada and out of Key largo, amazing corral and fish. The Villa owners were always available and helpful. We rent on trip advisor frequently and we can highly recommend Villa Marlin.

Owner's reply: Thank you very much.

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

Owner's reply: Thank you very much.

“Just Right”

Reviewed 13 Apr 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

Owner's reply: Thank you very much

“Just perfect!”

Reviewed 26 Mar 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
