My family ranked this vacation as one of our favorites. This spectacular home and setup gave the teenage kids their own house and the adults their own area to enjoy. The outdoor area was our hot spot. We absolutely loved the pool, the shaded tiki area and the grill. After a long day of fishing our fishermen brought back a ton of fish for us to cook up and that grill area made it easy to cook and clean up. The kayaks that Bill had available for us to use were great. Adults and kids both had the opportunity to kayak through the canal and the ocean. We got to enjoy a manatee visit one night and were grateful that the dock was so big so that we all could see this amazing creature at the same time.
The area was perfect. We were close to Publix and the liquor store. There was a sanctuary right across the street from Publix where we got to see Osprey, fish and lizards. My son and I got to take some awesome photos there. Restaurants were nearby, too. The Cracked Conch Cafe doesn’t look like much from the outside but the food was amazing. Large portions and reasonable prices made that a family favorite. We took the drive down to Key West three times during the week. There was so much to see. It was a fun place to shop, see the boats and grab a nice cold beverage or two. On our last day we hit up one of the many beaches between Marathon and Key West. We got to snorkel, swim in that gorgeous water, enjoy the beautiful beach and have an all-around spectacular last day.
This home was a great place for our vacation. We got to spend time in a beautiful area of Florida that we had never been to. This home offered us all that we needed to make this one of our best vacations to date. We look forward to returning. Thank you Bill and Monique for opening your home to us.
