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!

Wonderful house and location. Everything website represented.

  • 5 of 5

This property felt like you were staying at a friend's vacation home in lieu of a rental house. Phil and Linda have done a great job with furnishings, decorations, landscaping and pool. Property is well maintained. Although area was recently hit by hurricane Irma, area is recovering well. We are looking forward to returning next year!

This place is beautiful inside and out! Everything looks as good or better then the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

We go to the Keys every year and this house was by far the best we have stayed in. It looks just like the pictures. Location was great, views were beautiful, neighbors were friendly, felt like home! We enjoyed the pool and the kayaks daily. The owners were great to work with and we appreciate them opening their home up to us for a wonderful vacation. We will be back!

Great Property

Great property for a family vacation. It was equipped with everything needed to ensure our stay was great. Kayaks, bikes, fishing poles, dock (short ride to the ocean), and a large pool. We will definitely be back.

Everything we needed was available in the home. We use to live in Marathon and went back for a visit. This house was a perfect option for us. We will definitely book this property for our next visit to Marathon!

We loved this home and the owners were a delight to deal with!

  • 5 of 5

This home is spectacular. The outdoor area truly makes this vacation rental. The tropically landscaped pool area complete with hammock, tiki hut, pool and boat dock make you feel like you're at an exclusive resort! The views of the sunset and colorful skies are breathtaking. The home is comfortable and has a quaint tropical charm. The wrap around patio was great for enjoying morning coffee while taking in the views. I would highly recommend this home to any family looking to enjoy the best of what Marathon has to offer!
