Wonderful property. A real salute to the owners for getting it ready after the hurricane.
Joe E.on 12/30/2017
My family had a great time over the week of New Year's 2018. Made the best of the below normal temps that hit the area. The Tropical Sunrise home was lovely and met my family's needs well. I don't think there could be many better views in the Keys. Having the kayaks available to use was great as well.
We were saddened though at the amount of destruction that surrounds the home. The devastation from Hurricane Irma in the keys is just mind boggling.
While the home overall was excellent, there are some areas that could be improved:
1. Wireless router could be positioned better so that it covers the entire home. We were disconnected all the time when on the deck and patio.
2. Could use with some "normal" size drink ware.
3. The master bathroom could use some additional hooks for towels and bathing suits. 3M command hooks would work great.
4. While there were many knives, none were very sharp.
5. Pool was supposed to be heated but was not. This could be a result of the repairs from the hurricane though.
6. Hot and cold water supply lines are reversed for one of the sinks in the master bath.

Although the weather was not conducive to a great Keys trip, we had a fabulous time anyway. The house was beautiful, they were many forms of entertainment for our children, we all loved it and had a great time.
Robert C.on 03/25/2017
It all started when we stepped out of the van upon arrival and stayed with us the entire week, an overwhelming sense of the WOW factor. Awesome views, incredible setting with spectacular landscaping, impeccable lay out of the house with comforts to meet all our family needs, a kitchen to die for, pool, spa, kayaks, bikes, game tables, outdoor seating and eating areas enjoyed by all. We could not have asked for a more ultimate Florida Keys experience. THANK YOU for sharing your piece of paradise.
Elizabeth F.on 02/11/2017
This property was everything it claimed to be. The kitchen and linens were well stocked and we found everything in working order. The management team was easy and friendly to work with. Both the owner and management checked in with us shortly after arrival to ensure everything was up to our expectations. The location was easy to find and quiet. We enjoyed the kayaks and paddle boards. I would definitely recommend this property to any family looking for a spacious house for a relaxing vacation.

I am an appraiser in Naples FL and have seen numerous high end homes in Collier County over my 32 years of appraising. I have to say that this house goes far beyond a GREAT VACATION !
I must say that this location is perfection. It is so calming, peaceful, clean, has everything that one needs for a great vacation getaway. It is in line with many Gulf front homes in Naples and, in my opinion, has superior views and vistas. If you are thinking of spending time in the FL Keys, this IS THE PLACE. Does not get any better than this !!!
Thank you to the Jones for sharing your home with the Hale family, I hope you will have us again this summer. THE PERFECT PARADISE HOME !!!!!

We took our family to Marathon for Christmas (six adults and a 2 1/2 year old). We had a wonderful time. The house was perfect --comfortable living area, well equipped kitchen, great master suite -- and we thoroughly enjoyed all the outdoor spaces -- enjoyed swimming and sitting by pool and sitting on the deck. We had fun on the kayaks and we took our boat and docked the boat at the boat dock in the canal -- perfect for jumping in and going fishing! Landscaping was beautiful. Our granddaughter loved catching fish from the dock and watching the fish in the lagoon, we even saw a lobster. We enjoyed some beautiful sunsets. We had a perfect vacation and truly hated to leave!
Morgan J.on 10/15/2016
We liked this place so much we came back a 2nd time to stay at the house. It has pretty much everything you need to have a great stay on the water. The views are spectacular and the house is well kept.
Willow F.on 10/08/2016
It was wonderful in every way!!!!!!
john s.on 09/24/2016
The place and location were perfect!!
Mike K.on 09/14/2016
Beautiful home in a great location. We will definitely be back....thank you so much for everything!
Bryan B.on 08/06/2016
great house, great location, has everything you could want in a water vacation.
Marilyn K.on 05/07/2016
This vacation rental was amazing, location in Marathon was the best, It
is close to grocery stores and restaurants. Pool and hot tub were super clean. Our only complaint would be the noisy air conditioners. If you want a great vacation in the middle keys STAY HERE.
Kristy B.on 04/09/2016
The house was amazing from beginning to end. The kids started every morning fishing on the dock in their pjs followed by hours of swimming in the pool. It was a great mix of relaxation and adventures. We can't wait to come back!
Pamela T.on 02/13/2016
This is a beautiful home with the best amenities . The home sits at the end of a quiet neighborhood . THe ocean is all around you and you can't help but just enjoy it. THere is plenty of space for togetherness and also places to be alone, all in one property. And it is spotless, inside and out. THe kitchen has everything you need to make a gourmet meal, and so roomy. All the bedrooms are beautifully decorated and comfortable. There are plenty of lines and a washer and dryer. No need to over pack your suitcase. THe pool and garden areas are lovely with again, so much seating. This year a pool table and fooseball table have been added.Enjoy the kayaks that are so easy to use due to the launch. I can't say enough about this property. I love it! Oh and, Vickie is only a phone call, e-mail or steps away with all the help you may need.
Vanne Y.on 11/21/2015
We were three couples and found the home to be very comfortable and spacious. The outdoor space was the main reason we selected this rental and we weren't disappointed. There is plenty of room to spread out, dine on the porch, enjoy morning coffee, etc. The kitchen was pretty well appointed with lots of dishes and utensils (except no whisk?!?). We loved having direct water access; we rented paddle boards for the week. The kayak launch is brilliant!
We would happily rent this home again.
Morgan J.on 10/24/2015
This house is in a great location with awesome views from the living room and deck. It had plenty of space to store our boat along the seawall with great protection. All of the amenities (hot tub, pool, pool table, kayaks, bikes, etc.) are a real plus. The only opportunity I suggest would be better internet service because wifi was flaky.
Christine L.on 07/18/2015
We spent our summer vacation in this amazing home and it was pure and utter PARADISE!! The location cannot be beat and the home was just perfect for us. We especially enjoyed the kayaking and the kayak launch was amazing!! Makes it super easy to get on and off of the kayaks without having to step into the water. The owners of this home obviously maintain and improve their home constantly. We wouldn't have changed a thing except for our length of stay, 2 weeks would have been nice. Can't wait to visit this home again, it is PARADISE FOUND!!
Christine M.on 05/30/2015
Beautiful home! Great home for a family reunion.
There was something for everyone! The landscaping was incredible.
We would love to return next year. It was the vacation of a life time!
Thomas P.on 05/02/2015
We had 4 couple come down from the Chicago area after a long cold winter, and a long hockey season, and we're greeted with the most beautiful views!! The house was set up perfectly with abundant dishes, silverware, towels, ect. We rented a 30 ft boat for 3 days and kept it at house because of its great dock . Fish cleaning table too. Huge hot tub and pool help ease our tensions also. It was just perfect!
Norman M.on 04/18/2015
This house is perfect and we felt like we were at our own private resort. The house was very clean and had updated appliances,lots of bath and beach towels, great bathrooms, comfortable beds and pillows and so much more. There was nothing we wished for. The pool and hot tub were wonderful. We ate on the beautiful porch overlooking the ocean all week. Great kayaking with a launch! Every time we went out we would say "lets go back to the house". It is truly a resort to enjoy with your family. The owner has taken great care of this property and has made every effort to supply you with everything you need. The Management Company also did an excellent job arranging our rental. I highly recommend this beautiful house and hope to return again.
Susan A.on 04/04/2015
Our vacation was perfect. The house and grounds were beyond our expectations. The beds very comfy, kitchen fully equipped and so much to do right on our property! Everyone of us (9) have made memories together for a lifetime. Thank you!
Michael R.on 03/28/2015
Great house with a great view. Plenty of room for the family. The bikes, kayaks, and fishing rods were a huge hit. The kitchen was very well supplied with good pans, pots, utensils, and some spices to cook. The grill was nice, and the porch furniture was very comfortable, making being outside a must. Would definitely rent again.
Robert S.on 03/21/2015
This home was incredible! Four couples rented this home during spring break and found that it met every need we had. The rooms were nicely furnished. The kitchen had updated appliances. The view from the deck was absolutely wonderful. The pool was perfect for hot days and the hot tub was great for relaxing at night. We used the kayaks everyday and fished the canal. Already thinking when we can come back.
Pamela T.on 02/14/2015
We spent our vacation at this lovely home. Every room is comfortable and provides plenty of room. The on line pictures are true to life. There's so much to do and see in Marathon and all are a quick drive or walk. We will be returning. Also, your property manager is there for you for any questions or needs. Wish we could have stayed longer!
Nancy K.on 12/20/2014
Working with our realtor Vicki was an absolute joy! Then the setting and accommodations of this house were simply fabulous. I would highly recommend this home to those with grown kids and their kids. We brought our two sons, their wives and three granddaughters with us and there was plenty of room for each family.
Gloria H.on 12/06/2014
It was amazing! The house was clean had all the things we needed and more. The bikes were a wonderful surprised and used several times. The kayakes were so fun we used them to go out and watch the sunset a few nights. We cooked most meals in as it was easier with a 3 year old, the kitchen was was well stocked with every cooking essential we needed, even used the waffle iron. Once we got there no one wanted to leave, we watched the sun rise and set most days from the great deck. I even took a nap out there a few times. It's close to stores and groceries are 2 minutes away. Won't change anything except I wish I owned it so I never had to leave!!
Margaret N.on 10/25/2014
The pictures do not even begin to capture this beautiful house and setting. It is easy to find, yet very private and secluded. We had plenty of space to ourselves, and plenty of activities to enjoy together; swimming, kayaking, biking, hot tub, fishing, manatee watching. The interior and furnishings are very luxurious. The beds were soft and comfy with luxury sheets. Everything in the house worked perfectly. Plenty of hot water for all the showers. The kitchen is huge, plenty of room to prepare the fresh fish or lobsters you can catch nearby. The view is breathtaking....you can see the sunrise AND the sunset from everywhere. We ate almost every meal on the fabulous deck, often while watching the mama osprey feed her baby perched in a palm tree next to the pool! The retention pond out front is like your own personal aquarium....all kinds of fish (barracuda, parrotfish, moray eel) live together in this unique ecosystem. It was voted by the family as the #1 favorite house we have ever rented. We were sad to go back to the cold...but look forward to next year.
Grocery stores, drugstores and adult beverage stores were only a mile away.
Jerry H.on 08/09/2014
Beautiful house and great location! Can't say anything bad about the place, it is well maintained and has everything you need.
Susan H.on 06/21/2014
we had a great time. the house and location were beautiful. Would come back again.
Laura H.on 05/10/2014
Overall our week in marathon was fabulous. The house was mostly very accommodating, although there were a couple things of note. The nonstick pans need to be replaced, as we enjoy cooking but the old pans made it difficult. Sharp knives would be nice too. Also the beautiful tidal pool had unsightly algae covering a large portion of it. It was finally cleaned toward the end of the week. Overall we enjoyed the house very much. Thank you!
Ian H.on 03/08/2014
we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. the water views are amazing. would recommend this property for families looking for a great family getaway.
Peggy S.on 03/01/2014
We enjoyed our stay very much! The view was spectacular! It was like staying at our own resort!
Donald C.on 02/22/2014
We spent an idyllic week at this property with our daughter, her husband, and their three children (9, 11 and 13). They enjoyed riding the bicycles, the pool and the hot tub. Accommodations were perfect and the kitchen was well equipped for breakfasts and those occasions when we didn't feel like going out to eat. This was our most expensive rental to date, but well worth every penny!
Rosemary B.on 02/01/2014
We were very comfortable there. The view was so relaxing and beds terrific. The kitchen very well equiped. We had trouble with the hot tub until the day before we left and the pool man brought some parts. All in all a good week.
The house was clean and well kept. The amenities made the stay, convenient and relaxing. A beautiful home with amazing views in all directions! Meals on the balcony had our entire party in awe daily.
The communication with the property management team was extremely fast, even during the holidays!
The home is awesome with plenty of activities on site and easy access to the Atlantic or Gulf.
We stayed at this incredible rental for a week in June. The place was perfect for our family which included young children. The views are beautiful and the home is wonderful with an updated kitchen and restrooms and beautiful Decour throughout. What a perfect location! We can't wait to go back.
Wonderful. 5's to everything. The ice maker was quirky.
The description and photos accurately depict the location and house. Great view; lots of pelicans. House was very clean and is well equipped. Had one heating issue, fixed very quickly. Very quiet location. Only problem, really, was the weather - 10 degrees below normal.
Two families celebrate the holiday week in the keys....this was the perfect house in a perfect location. We have made some of the best memories just being at the house and enjoying each other's company.
Following the gps to the end of the road to find this beautiful home. We couldn't get outta the car quick enough, climb up the stairs to the wrap around deck, battling each other to b the first to see this magnificent view!!! It was breathtaking!! Everything was perfect!!!! From the outside to the inside! Rooms were lovely and fit our family just right!! Not only did we enjoy everything the property had to offer i.e.: kayaks, pool table, heated pool, jacuzzi, we rented a boat for a few days and docked it right up on their dock! We fished off the dock also. My husband, we were celebrating his 50th birthday, was so relaxed and enjoyed the fishing off the rock wall the best. :) brought back memories of his childhood. From sunrises in the morning to sunsets at night we couldn't ask for a more beautiful place to stay. We will definitely be visiting again and we've told all of our friends! You will not be disappointed!! And one last thing, Anne was so helpful in our booking process. She was but at a touch of my finger tips to talk to and I don't want to leave out Vicki! They were both such great women to deal with!! Thanks for making our family vacation so easy to plan. You will not be disappointed!! :)
The house itself was absolutely beautiful. The view is just breathtaking. Our whole entire family came. So there were 8 of us. The sad thing is, 6 of got food poisoning from a restaurant in Key west. It was awful! Took two years to save for our vacation and we sat in the house close to the bathrooms for the majority of it. We rented a boat that we didn't get to enjoy even. The house had kayaks and a beautiful pool and a jacuzzi too. My only critique of the place is that the house cleaning service that cleaned before we checked in was not finished when we got there. More than likely because they cleaned everything out of the cupboards and fridge. Only left one roll of toilet paper per bathroom. One garbage bag left per room. No paper towels even. Not even dish soap. Wish they had used more time cleaning. The property management gal was extremely helpful and pleasant to deal with tho. Over all I would think about this place possibly again.
We had to call the property manager re the pool getting cloudy and the air conditioner stopped working and was leaking through the ceiling. The property manager handled these issues amazingly fast with no disruption to us or our schedule. There was also some mold in the shower and an ant problem in the kitchen which we managed ourselves. The furniture and linens/towels were all high quality and very clean. The double kayak must have had a leak in that when we took it out my husband noted he was sinking! When we got it back we had to empty water from the inner compartment. Despite the above issues, the property is absolutely beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed our vacation!
