Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved our stay at Mockingbird Pointe! The grounds are absolutely beautiful with lush, tropical landscaping. With the house at the end of the road and on the wider part of the channel it is very quiet and secluded. A perfect location - Marathon is central to everything we wanted to do in the Keys. The neighborhood is just down the road from grocery stores making it quick to stop almost daily. The house itself is tastefully decorated with a fun beach/water and artsy feel. The beds were comfortable and with nice linens. Plenty of both bath and beach towels. There was more than enough space for our family of four. Best of all is the pool! All four of us spent hours and hours swimming. The water was always a perfect temperature and the pool is big enough for games. We agree with other reviews in that we enjoyed the screened in porch and multiple hammocks. Owners were responsive with questions ahead of time and called to see how our stay was going. We never had any issues and I can't think of any downside to this rental at all! Would love to return someday!

Our stay in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an amazing time at this lovely house. It's like a private oasis with everything you need close by. Phil & Linda made sure we had everything we needed to make our stay feel like "home sweet home". We had beach towels, kayaks, coolers and beach chairs. Phil responded to every question I had and was very happy to share all of the secrets of Marathon. We enjoyed the bikes on a daily basis for a short ride to Sombrero Beach as well as to the shopping center. The kids used the kayaks almost everyday to explore the canals. We tried fishing too (poles provided by the owners as well) right off our own personal dock. We used the amazing pool, grill and tiki hut everyday. We are so thankful to the owners for sharing their wonderful home. We truly were in our own personal paradise. Especially when we shut the air off and opened all the french doors letting the ocean breeze in and making the screened in porch part of our living space. We were very sad to leave and are hoping to visit again. If you stay here, I can guarantee you will not be disappointed!! Thank you so much Phil & Linda:)

Great!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful 9 night stay in this amazing house. We loved the screened in porch that wraps around the house and all of the doors you can open up. Also love the pool and tiki hut. Great neighborhood. No disappointments. Owners are great people. We would definitely stay again. Actually we want to move there and never leave!

"This was like our own private resort"

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful vacation property. Spent hours in the private heated pool with great chaise lounges. Décor made it feel a millions miles away from our northern home. Nice bath and beach towels compared to other places we have stayed. Very comfortable for our party of six. Kitchen is huge and fully stocked with everything you need. Grill area is lit at night for cooking out. Close to everything - Publix, Kmart, Restaurants , and liquor stores are nearby!!! Grounds are amazing and very private. Kayaks and Bikes are a great touch. We loved spending time on the screen deck just relaxing with coffee or cocktails. Owners were great to communicate with and provided wonderful info for things do and see. We will be back - best vacation rental we have ever stayed at!

Beautiful, well kept vacation home.

  • 4 of 5

A wonderful place to spend two weeks. Golf close by, tennis, fishing and a pool to relax in. What more could you ask for?

Relaxing, Clean, Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This is a very functional, clean and comfortable two-bedroom home with a almost wrap-around screened porch - a great place to enjoy breakfast or a night cap. The new landscaping sets off the house beautifully and provides quite a bit of privacy that will only improve as the vegetation grows. The pool is beautiful, matched by the wonderful view across the small bay. It is a quiet location with very few cars or boats passing by, but is close to town, shopping and restaurants. If a two-bedroom is for you, I'm sure you will enjoy it.
