Exactly as described!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to the keys many many times. This house was great for our family of 5, including our kids ages 13,12 &10. The older two enjoyed the kayaks & all 3 enjoyed the pool! The dock was great for the Boat we rented. A 10-12 Minute beautiful boat ride and you are at either the gulf or ocean side. The home was amazingly clean and well stocked with essentials for your nights cooking in. Centrally located in marathon, an easy quick drive to everything. We already booked this house for our next 2 trips to the keys!! Thanks for being so responsive through out & mostly for opening your home to us!

The home and property are beautiful. You would never know a storm had come through.

  • 5 of 5

The owners were really great. The house is very comfortable and has lots of character. The kitchen is fully stocked and easy to use. The pool is wonderful (86 to 88 degrees) every day we were there. Kayaking is great right from the property. Most of the area is recovering nicely, but this neighborhood seems untouched. Key West feels the same way. Anyone wanting a beautiful relaxing comfortable place to call home for a week in the Keys, will LOVE this place. Thanks Phil and Linda for making your place available for others to enjoy!

Beautiful Marathon Home

  • 4 of 5

Property was very nice and as described. We had a wonderful vacation and would recommend this property to all. We would have rated 5 stars except for the hurricane debris removal site that is directly across the lagoon from the home. The loud trucks worked off and on as late as 9pm on one occasion and also through the weekend. Besides that and the pesky iguanas which seem to think they were invited when we tried to eat poolside, all else was outstanding.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. Fortunately, the hurricane debris removal which was across the lake, on the other side the golf course has been completed. The city and the entire area have done a tremendous job of making the area and the beaches welcoming to visitors once again.

Lovely peaceful vacation house

  • 5 of 5

Excellently maintained and smartly decorated home that will satisfy any traveler. Phil and Linda responded quickly to any questions or concerns. Fishing was easy from their dock and we enjoyed catching enough to brag about. The Iguanas that live on the property were fun to watch, they like to eat bananas. The pool was clean and heated as described. Linda and Phil’s suggestions regarding restaurants and places to visit were great.

This is a place where folks can just rest and get away from it all. We highly recommend it to all.

I'm not much for words, but this was a fantastic location to stay. The pool, bicycles, kayaks, the view and fishing from the dock were all better than expected. We have already booked this location again for next year. Could not have been better....

Dear Phil and Linda,

Our 10 days at your home was amazing. We enjoyed the pool and fishing off the dock every day. Lonna and I turned 60 this year and were looking for a special vacation and your home and property are beyond words. We especially appreciated the honest and hands on reports from you regarding the situation after Irma. We are so happy we stuck with our plans and ended up with the vacation of a lifetime. We relaxed in the pool enjoying your landscape and

the friendly Iguanas also catching a wide variety of fish off the dock which also supplied a few great meals, we even saw a manatee relaxing around the dock. We can easily recommend your property to anyone that is looking to grab a little slice of paradise in the Keys and come away with the best memories imaginable. We enjoyed your input and suggestions for restaurants and activities and even though some of the parks were closed and there was lots of debris in the area you helped make our stay very special. Thank You so much for everything we look forward to a return visit soon.

Owner's Response: Steve and Lonna, We are so glad you had a wonderful time at our home and all of the wonderful feedback. We also love it when manatees visit the dock. We recently had a family of three in front of our property. Hope to have you back again soon! Phil and Linda p.s. Thank you for sending us the fishing pictures - you really had some beautiful Mutton snapper to take home with you.

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!
