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!

Great Stay at Mockingbird Pointe

We had a great stay at Mockingbird Pointe. Everything was arranged beautifully. The space was in a beautiful setting, and the home had everything we needed.

A slice of paradise that is serene and quiet.

  • 5 of 5

The beautiful pictures of this home are even better in person. We enjoyed our week long stay at this Mockingbird Pointe home. It has everything you would need for whatever activities you want to take advantage of while being in the hot and sunny weather of Marathon. Right on a bay we kayaked multiple times and saw dolphins! The pool was our favorite part. All of the finishings in and outside the home are top notch and the landscaping leaves you feeling like you are in paradise. The home was very clean and we appreciated the availability of beach towels. We rode bikes (though the air pump didn't work) to the beach and around the neighborhood. The home was very clean and comfortable (though new pillows would be a good idea, they were a little flat). A family of iguanas were always fun to watch and they kept to themselves. The owners were very accommodating and answered our questions quickly, we would definitely stay here again and recommend everyone to stay at this home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review and feedback. A new bike pump is on the way! That's really neat about the dolphins. We often have manatees as well. Hope to have you again as our guests.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best and most relaxing vacation here we could possibly hope for. The house and setting is just beautiful. The pool and area around it couldn't be nicer. Although we did drive down to Key West one day and had a great time doing so, we feel sort of bad we didn't get around to see more of the sites in the area. However it was too hard to pull ourselves away from the house and pool! The house has everything you would possibly need and shopping is very convenient. The design of the house is really incredible. Since the entire wrap around porch is totally screened in, you can open all the double doors and have this incredible breeze blowing through...so nice and relaxing. Don't hesitate to book this place!

Perfect family rental in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Mockingbird Pointe is a little piece of paradise! The home is super clean and feels like your home away from home. The outside portion is amazing! There's beautiful lush greenery, a relaxing pool, a boat dock with great fishing and kayaking. It was the perfect house for our family. We had 3 adults & 2 children (3 & 5). There are numerous doors around the house that open to the screened wrap around porch and all the door locks are high where little hands cannot reach. This is a big deal when you have kids that want to be in the pool all day! Everything you need is there! We would love to stay here again on our next trip to the keys!
