Lovely, unique home

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here the last ten days of September. We come to the Keys every year and bring our boat for diving, lobstering, and fishing. We have stayed at many homes over four years, and this was by far the best. It was difficult to leave.

The home itself is beautiful and unique with its wrap around, screened-in porch and wooden cupola. Since the owners seem to stay often, it is well-equipped and filled towels and little details you always seem to need on trips. The master bed is comfortable. There is a gas range. The cable TV offers many channels. The indoor space makes this house ideal for a couple or a family. It may be a little cramped for two couples.

The grounds are beautiful and professionally landscaped, and a pleasure to look at it. The pool has a great beach entry with umbrella, and has a chiller! The chiller is worth the stay alone. The new tiki hut provides a lot of shade.

The dock is well equipped with shower, two hoses (one at the fish cleaning station) and lights (also a bright light at the cleaning station.) The dock is very well set-up for people who bring their boat and fish. It is in a well-protected deep lagoon, about a 15-minute idle to the Ocean.

The convenient location cannot be beat! Two minute car ride to Publix/Winn Dixie/CVS/Kmart (a must if you are fishing.) It's close to everything.

The owners are very attentive and helpful and have put a lot of work into their home.

We could not stop talking about how much we loved the home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful detailed review. We hope you come back soon. We have found that when traveling with another couple there is ample room for up to six with the two master suites, one with a queen and two twin beds and their own private bath.

Mockingbird Pointe exceeded our expectations we had gotten from pictures and descriptions.

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect for our week long stay in Marathon. The pool that had just recently been added was one of the best features. We had a boat rented for the week and were able to keep it at the private dock located at the property, this was also very nice. The house is located on a very quiet culdesac and very private. We enjoyed everything about the house and if our vacation should be in Marathon again we will try our best to stay at same location.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. We just love the new pool ourselves - especially the splash deck and the water views from the pool deck. We are so glad you enjoyed your vacation at our home. Hope you can return soon!

Linda & Phil are very gracious hosts. They were immediately responsive to our needs. We definitely recommend this as a wonderful home away from home and hope to stay here again in the future.

Great House!

  • 4 of 5

Great location in the middle of The Keys, with easy access to everything. Our family enjoyed riding bikes to Sombrero beach one mile from the property. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood, which we liked. It is easily accessible to everything, grocery store, liquor store, pharmacy, lots of restaurants, etc. We enjoyed quite a few of the restaurants in the area: Sparky's, 7 Mile Grill, Sunset Grille. We also got fish from Keys Fisheries Market and Marina to cook at home, which was delicious. We also enjoyed visiting the Bahia Honda State Park and the Sea Turtle Hospital. The property has everything anyone would need. We especially enjoyed the wrap around porch. The kids enjoyed fishing off the dock almost every morning we were there. The owners were very helpful and responded to us very quickly on any questions or concerns we had. We hear they are putting in a pool which will be a perfect addition! We would highly recommend this house to anyone! We hope to have the opportunity to visit again!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted to find the house located at the very end of the street not only was there minimal car traffic there was minimal boat traffic as well. We enjoyed the privacy of the backyard as we spent time working out and sunbathing on the dock. The house is not large but the four of us (all adults) found that we were very comfortable. There is one bathroom but between my wife and two daughters we were able to schedule our shower time without conflict. The house includes a screened porch that encompasses all four sides of the house. We found the porch ideal for reading time and mealtime and all rooms including the bedrooms have french doors that open out to the screened porch. In the evening we opened up all the doors and enjoyed the cool breeze as we slept. In the cozy great room we watched a little TV but there was no DVD player. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking ware, utensils, plates ect... The house is walking distance to a local beach and is also within walking distance to a Publix and Winn Dixie grocery store. I don't know if there are any plans to build an in ground swimming pool but that would have been ideal to have a pool in the backyard. However there is a restaurant/bar with a nice pool next to the Seven Mile Bridge we enjoyed the food and drinks there as well as the pool. The owner of the house was very pleasant and easy to work with and responded immediately to our questions during our stay. I would absolutely recommend this house to friends.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review of our home. We have exciting news about the property which you will appreciate as it addresses your suggestions. Our new heated in-ground pool construction is starting April 3rd. It will be 16 x 34 and also have a splash deck and all new pool furniture. We are also expanding and remodeling the two bedrooms and adding a new all tile private bath and larger closet to what will be the new master. The other bedroom will be enlarged enough for the addition of a set of twin beds to complement the queen bed. We have also added a DVD/Blueray player to the living area. The new home features will be available to all of our guests on rentals after June 1, 2016
