Last Renter of the Year
The property was in a terrific location and had lots of space. Unfortunately, the house was listed for sale while we were there and it was run down. There were so many broken items in the house and the owner did not care because it was being sold. It was used hard and not kept up. The property manager was great to deal with though! I hope whoever buys it updates it for the new renters.
In response to our customers issues while he was at the Villa we dispatched our handyman to resolve several minor issues as a result of an extremely busy rental season.
I am sure this guest as well as our many other guests had a great time at the Villa, however, it was extremely unfortunate numerous issues hit at once thus the justified comments from our renter.
We are currently updating and repairing the things that come after a busy rental summer season.
The property is on the market primarily as a extremely successful vacation rental business featuring a great location, scenic views, comfortable accommodations at a fair value.
Stay tuned for the cool upgrades.
Our improvement list is ongoing and Villa Sombrero is committed to assuring our guests to a great vacation rental experience.
Great house for a family reunion!
We were so happy to be all together in this fantastic house in a fantastic location. We saw a manatee near the dock the very first day- we loved looking for manatees and fish from the dock everyday. We used the upstairs for those of us that wanted a little quiet, but the majority of the time we were downstairs cooking, eating, swimming or playing tennis. We used the pool everyday for most of the day - warm and clean. We had everything we needed to make meals for everyone with 2 kitchens (although we mostly used the downstairs to cook and eat). The kitchen was big enough for 3 women to work at the same at the same time. We were happy for the dishwasher with so many people (8 adults and 2 kids). My brother, who lives in Florida, brought his fishing boat and gave boat rides and fishing trips. Views on the water were beautiful and the property so private. We had friends staying at a nearby hotel and they had quite a bit of wind and we did not. We did a day trip to Key West (about an hour away)and had a great lunch at a resort on Islamarada. Gary and the owner were very prompt in responding to any questions, needs or concerns that we had. Overall, it was perfect for 3 generations of our family to celebrate my Mom's 95th birthday- we would definitely stay there again!
Fabulous! Plan to return.
This was the perfect spot for our family. Plenty of room in the house and the outdoors was wonderful. We all enjoyed the pool, fished from the dock and were able to bring our boat and have it available at all times.
Great family vacation spot
Villa Sombrero is the perfect vacation home.
Beautiful grounds, large heated pool, comfortable accommodations.
A Great Place for Families
We had 6 adults and 6 kids stay at this home for spring break and the set up was perfect! Everyone had privacy of a room and yet we were close enough to cook and eat together without any problems. The lower level has a great open floor plan, easy in and out to the pool. The pool was AWESOME! Perfect temperature for the mom's to even slide into when they needed a break from the sun. When the kids weren't in the pool, they were catching fish off the dock or playing tennis. We had manatee float up to the seawall daily and the kids loved it! (We all did!) Hammock was used daily, loungers around the pool were good, patio area, semi-beach and dock were all great! Downstairs kitchen had everything we needed! Would definitely go back here and recommend it for families!!
Marathon, Florida the heart of the Florida Keys. A couple of hours from Miami and an hour to Key West.
