The house is large enough but had some issues including an AC that would not cool the house very well. The pool was green when we got there and has no pool cooler so it was very warm. Lastly this is a TIDE dependent canal. I have a 27 foot boat which will not make it in during low tide. The boat literally sat on the bottom of the canal during low tide and I was told this was a deep water canal.

as always, the Tingler Mansion is in great shape and very clean. The immediate access to the ocean is wonderful and the house is very comfortable.

Great location and a very nice house. We had a family vacation and the entire family had a great time. The house was clean and had plenty of cookware. Lots of things to do at the house which entertained everyone - pool, kayaks, pool table, ping pong.
Owner needs to make some basic improvements such as ceiling fans (missing blades) and outdoor furniture.

The house worked well for our family(daughter, husband, grandson and granddaughter.). We had very nice weather and the pool was the center of attraction.
Great location-- 1 mile to Sombrero Beach, 2 miles to Publix, K-Mart and stop light to get on to US 1. Also great views from multiple decks. Very quite neighborhood. NO traffic.
A little disappointed with rental company as two calls were not returned.
The house needs a little TLC and isn't as nice as some homes we have rented, but the ad represented the house well.
Rented a boat from Vacation Boat Rentals, which is close to rental. The boat dock was very good with a nice fish cleaning station and provided very good shelter. The boat rental company was excellent!!!
Overall we had a fantastic vacation. The Keys are great!!!

Home was beautiful, clean and included more amenities than we could use. We were three couples and could not use all the space or toys included with the house even though we tried. Didn't have time for the hot tub, pool table, ping pong table, kayak or paddle boards. Would love to bring my grandchildren back to take advantage of all this home has to offer. The Lighthouse Grill, Key Colony Inn and Sparky's were great places to dine. Go before 6 for great specials at the Lighthouse! Took the beautiful drive to Key West when the weather was bad in Marathon and enjoyed the sun and fun there. Was a great vacation and would not look for any other house to rent when we return. This home is perfect in every way! Thanks Vicki for answering all our questions and always being available when we needed you! (Even something as stupid as not being able to work the coffee maker...haha). Look forward to renting from you again!

This house was the perfect size for our group of 10.
The furnishings especially the outdoor could use some updating and bathroom fixtures but overall nice.
We had a couple maintenance issues that were taken care of very promptly.
Crystal P.on 06/18/2016
This is our 2nd year staying in this home and it had more than enough room 3 families. The upper deck of this house is my favorite for star gazing. The location cannot be beat....just down the road from Publix and a great park, playground and beach access just a short bike ride away!

Had a wonderful stay.Plan to do it again.House had some issues,but fairly typical of a rental.Location is super private and beautiful.Great ocean access from dock and a few minute boat ride to Sombrero Lighthouse for awesome snorkeling.Management is not quick to return your calls and there is not an emergency number (which we needed when there was a leak).LOTS OF STAIRS.Outside of house needs a little cosmetic workThe pool gets very warm and the cooling system has a lock on it, so you won't be able to utilize that.There are also security cameras around outside(so behave)Inside, the entire house is slick tile, which gets incredibly slick when wet.The house was very clean when we arrived.Linens and towels are cheap, but in decent shape.Laundry room has top of the line washer and dryer, which is great.Bed mattresses are Mehh..not great (master is the worst) but better than the last house we rented.All bathrooms in need of major update.Kitchenette/bedroom is HOT during the day but they have a large curtains on those windows so but your very early morning person on that hide-a-bed.Oven door has no glass.Main floor has a pool table, two sitting areas, dining area and kitchen.Unfortunately the dishwasher wasn't working when we got there and it didn't get fixed until Thursday which was an inconvenience and we had to go buy paper products to use instead of spend a lot of time washing dishes by hand. Rental company needs to have directions on some of the appliances.We are pretty smart people and couldn't figure any of those out on our own. Refrigerator stunk (like seafood) and we had to take out all the drawers, scrub it, and buy baking soda.Half bath on that floor gets VERY hot during the day.Porches are nice.New cushions needed on back porch facing the canal needed. All in all, we had a great time and would expect for the cost of this house, these details would be taken care of.

This was our second year staying at this wonderful house. Everything is close by, and there is easy access to the fishing grounds. the house is well equipped and the pool is great.
Chris H.on 12/19/2015
Our family of 7 spent Christmas week in this beautiful house. There was plenty of room, and our time was relaxing and fun. Special features that we really enjoyed were the roof top deck, and the top floor living area with pool table and kitchen. We spent many happy hours there. Mover all, a wonderful vacation.
William M.on 08/08/2015
We had a great experience with this rental. Lots of stairs, but the house was spacious and very close to the Atlantic and the Gulf for a boat. Would recommend this place to any family. The pool and the hot tub was great.
Stephen D.on 06/13/2015
The fishing was great, the house was a beautiful place, and the access to the ocean was perfect.
Christopher H.on 03/28/2015
We spent a lovely time in this villa, it was fantastic, we used the kayaks, it´s very close to the open sea, where you are able to watch dolphins, the rooms are very clean and the billiard table was perfect, everything was fine and we will definitely come back.
Erin K.on 01/29/2015
Kayaks on site were nice. Location on private island was a plus. Fishing off dock was great. Hot tub was not working but when property manager was notified, there was someone there immediately to fix it. Enjoyed having the pool table and ping pong table.
Nealy H.on 08/02/2014
The house was amazing. It was very clean and well stocked. We would definitely stay there again!
Tim C.on 03/22/2014
Rented 76 EK's Dream for my wife's 50th Birthday. It was one of the most relaxing vacations we have ever had. Very private and yet convenient enough to walk to the beach. We would certainly do it again!
Sally M.on 03/01/2014
Two improvements to consider - the gas grill needed clean or new grates plus a full tank. We chose not to use it. If a faster internet speed is available, I suggest upgrading to the next higher speed.
We had a comfortable and relaxing week and enjoyed being so close to the Publix and the beach. Loved all the water views!
Chris W.on 12/21/2013
Our large family of ten was very comfortable here and loved the remote location with the close proximity to Sombrero beach and necessities. We also rented a second home on Tingler with additional relatives so we felt like we were on our own island estate. Kayaking, hiking, fishing, boating, and swimming were daily highlights. One week was not enough and we are already planning to return next year!
Beautiful pool area. Really convenient to stores and dining. Lots of steps for older guests.
We had a wonderful vacation. The property is located a short distance from Marathon. Everything readily available but all the advantages of quiet, beautiful views and more than we expected. Our only problem was with the cable TV being out but everyone tried very hard to resolve it. Would definitely come again or recommend it to friends. There were nine in our family group and plenty of room for everyone with lovely spaces to be alone and to enjoy. And...the fishing was great!!
Had a great time with family in the keys. Taking our kayaks out from house to beach was wonderful. Took them around island to other areas. Household kayaks need new seat. Pool was great, warm from Sun, I would move the fixtures from around pool, had to worry about them getting knocked. All the rooms worked out great best location for private, quiet vacation but you could bike to beach, publix.
Our family of 4 and another family of 4 rented this house for a week. With 4 boys from 5-11. The house was perfect and clean. Great outside for boys to keep entertained. We brought our boat down and a jet ski. Rented paddle boards too.
Between meals, hot tub, pool, kayaks we all had a great time. The island was peaceful too. When I first arrived I felt there were not enough lounge chairs. By 9 am 4 new lounge chairs arrived. Perfect!!!
In an excellent location. It was walking distance to the beach and it had a nice pool. House could stand some updates and maybe new mattresses. Other than that we had a fantastic stay and would love to return.
The house was in a great location. We could walk or bike to most places. The house had ample seating inside and outside. The pool and hot tub were really nice. We saw lots of wildlife from the dock.
