10/10/15 Wedding

October 15, 2015

While still glowing from my daughter's wedding this past Sat., I am compelled to share with others just how perfect this property really is for a wedding venue or family reunion destination! We were able to share this amazing home with my family for 10 days while also hosting the rehearsal dinner, wedding and reception. I searched many VRBO properties and local venues before deciding on SD2 and could not be happier with our decision. I am not sure I could have found a more perfectly located, relaxing and stunning spot for Jill and Ryan's special day. The caretaker, Joe, was attentive and took care of any needs. Kayaking, swimming, fishing and snorkeling are literally at your front dock. 3 houses, 3 pools and plenty of landscaped space provided the perfect setting for the making of amazing memories. Kevin, the owner, is always available by phone or email and so easy to work.This home is simply breathtaking! It was sheer pleasure enjoying this home as the base for my daughter's special day. 5+ stars and my highest recommendations for this property!

awesome honeymoon destination

October 19, 2014

We rented this home for our honeymoon in October 2014. We invited 9 of our family and friends to join us. We had an amazing time. The house is even more beautiful in person. It's a rough decision when u have to decide which pool to go into for the day. The kitchen was outstanding. A great time was had by all. Would 100% recommend this place.

Amazing home and Wedding Venue

September 19, 2014

I cant say enough good things about the owners, property manager, and this amazing home.Our family vacations in the Keys every year for lobster season so when our daughter decided to get married, there was no other place she would rather get married than in Marathon. We have a large family and have stayed in several homes on the island, which all have paled in comparison to this one. From the time the private gate opened we were in awe of the beautifully landscaped property ,home ,and amenities. There was plenty of room to spread out on the property so even with 21 of us there for the week you did not feel like you were on top of each other. The main kitchen was the gathering spot and had every appliance, pot ,and pantry to accommodate such a large group. The ice machine in the kitchen was a huge plus. Every room was well thought out with quality linens and everything that made it feel like home. The amazing Gulf view was the perfect backdrop for our daughters wedding which was at sunset the day after we arrived. The owner allowed us to have the rental company drop off chairs tables arbor ect. to the home before we even arrived on Saturday. The tiki hut was perfect for the caterers to set up food , the beach for a sit down dinner, and the beautiful salt water pool with floating candle arrangements made for a romantic setting while everyone gathered to celebrate. We have the most amazing pictures that we will always cherish of our daughter on the beautiful staircase inside praying with her husband before the I do's , her coming down the steps of the back of this most beautiful home with her dad, and a sunset kiss on the gulf. We have had many people say this was the most beautiful wedding they have ever been to or have ever seen. This was a dream come true for our daughter and the best vacation we have ever had with our family. The newlyweds stayed in the cassida overlooking the gulf which was perfect . The week was filled with lots of good fishing and lobsters not far from the house. We also had a manatee that came to visit for a few hours down on the dock . This property far exceeded our expectations and we would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a place to make wonderful memories.
