About Michelle Hunter

We are from Illinois, and were looking for a warm, tropical getaway. A place where we could occasionally escape the cold and snow of the long northern winters. We wanted a place where we could feel at home....yet feel like we were on vacation also. So we have equipped our villa with all the amenities we enjoy at home, and have a few extra touches to remind you that you are on vacation. Please enjoy our beautiful Keys home as much as we have.

Michelle Hunter purchased this villa in 2014

Why Michelle Hunter chose Central Florida Keys

We were drawn here by the quiet, friendly, gated community. The rooftop patio is truly amazing.

What makes this villa unique

Rooftop patio overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, and Vaca Cut.

Elevator from the ground floor/ carport to the second and third floors.

Swimming pool overlooking the Gulf of Mexico

Great location. Nice property

  • 4 of 5

2nd year at these villas. Different unit last year. Enjoyed walking and biking with great location. Close to restaurants. Nice pool looking at gulf. Guys caught fish off pier there. Unit needs some work. Master shower leaks. Bedding, mattress and sheets very worn. Need replaced. Kitchen needs cookie sheet or baking tray, 13X9 dish. Diff. size serving bowls. Toilet did not flush properly in one Bath and TV came unbolted from wall in Bedroom. Luckily we caught before it fell. Beautifully decorated. Loved all the books and DVDs. Nice hot tub. Never could figure out TV in that area. We totally enjoyed our 2 wks but think unit needs some work.

Owner's Response: Robert, I am so sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us....and you are 100% incorrect in your assumption that the owners do not stay in this unit when they are here in The Keys, they actually love it and decorated it. We apologize for having wires that bring electricity to the units as well as cable T.V. and internet.....I think these are standard all over the world......If you are on the rooftop patio overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, you would not see these wires as you are well above them. Nothing but beautiful blue salt water to see. We also have a lovely pool on the waterfront with that same amazing view of the Gulf of Mexico. We have a community dock, that you can fish from, and see some of our beautiful sea life, the manatee love to hang out there. The low income apartments you refer to on 124th Street are kept clean and neat, and no junk around them, with nice vehicles parked in front, at about $1000-$1500 per month these are considered affordable for the workers in The Keys, the same ones that cleaned your villa, and rang up your groceries, and waited on you at dinner.....all with a smile, and thankful for your business. If you get a chance to return to The Keys you should spend your time touring our fabulous chain of islands, you won't believe your eyes.

A quiet villa in the middle of the Keys

  • 5 of 5

This villa is in a perfect location to not only explore Marathon but to drive to Key West or drive to Key Largo. Situated around mile marker 53, you can make a one hour drive to either side of the keys.

The villa was just big enough for 2 couples with the spare bedroom used for guests that flew in for a short weekend stay. We used the villa basically for sleeping and small meals as we explored the keys during the day. Fishing from the pier was not good but highly advise an outing with Captain Jay.

Would love to revisit the villa and the Keys!

Convenient location to everything in the keyes

Marathon is an ideal location to explore the entire keyes which made this villa a good option. Well stocked with everything you need. Staff attentive and helpful when needed. Quiet and comfortable. Great for families and groups of friends.

So much fun! Great house, beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at the villas! Enjoyed the clean house with gorgeous rooftop view of sunset. Loved the hot tub and easy access to pool. Everyone in the villas were nice and friendly and having a great time. The elevator makes the 3 story house very easy to move in and move out. We caught fish, lobsters and made lots of memories! Sherry was a pleasure to work with and very accommodating and easy to reach before and during our stay. Thanks for your hospitality! We highly recommend this house!

fantastic vacation rental with wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

this home was just what we had hoped it what be. it had everything you could need for an enjoyable stay, it was very clean and quiet. And once we arrived Michele stopped in and checked on us to be sure we were happy and did so thru the week, I must say she was a wonderful person and so thoughtful. I would not hesitate renting this home or from these ladies again.
