Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this Private Beachfront Paradise was absolutely wonderful. We were a group of 3 couples and the house was perfect. The house was clean and fresh when we arrived. Great little guest area downstairs w/ full kitchen, bedroom and bath. The upstairs was beautiful, with great views and a well stocked kitchen. We had more than enough towels for baths and pool. The house was so fabulous that we only went to dinner twice the week we were there. Every day was pool day. Plenty of chairs, pool toys and privacy. Did not get to meet the owner, but spoke to her a couple of times while we were there and she is such a sweet person. The only regret is that the week ended to soon.

Good but not perfect

  • 3 of 5

House is very nicely appointed and right on the ocean. Can't beat the view. Had a great time despite a few negatives. Pool was not vacuumed when we arrived. Called Lisa and was told it would be cleaned that day. Wasn't ! Called Lisa and was told next cleaning would be on Wednesday. Wasn't ! Called again and pool was finally cleaned Thursday. Hot tub was loaded with algae and unable to use. Stereo system was not working and was told that no one was available to fix it until the following week. Was surprised to find there is no interior staircase between first and second floor. Also, there is quite a bit of road noise since home sits right on the main highway. Finally, unable to swim in ocean due to seaweed which is thick and everywhere. In fairness, it is still a great vacation spot and I tend to be overly picky. Highly recommend Lazy Days for dinner. Good food, large drinks and right on the beach. Also loved the two hour jet ski guided tour. Don't go by yourself unless you are very familiar with the waters.

Amazing beach property!

  • 5 of 5

What a blast we had kicking off the first week of lobster season at this home. Our entire family came down, and this beach home was perfect in every way. The pool was very clean and well kept, and the beach set up looked like something out of a resort. All of the appliances were up to date and worked great. The place was very clean when we checked in, and you can tell the owners keep everything well maintained. The A/C worked amazing well (very important for my wife who was 7 months pregnant), and the layout upstairs was great for the family. They even had a jungle gym and tons of toys for the kids to play with. Will definitely come back here!

4th of July in Islamorada

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were so lucky to find this fantastic property on VRBO. We spent a week there and my brother and nephew joined us from Big Pine Key for the 4th of July. The house is so spacious, excellently furnished, and well maintained. Great pool and outdoor furnishings also. So nice to have a full kitchen both upstairs and down, as well as upstairs and down outdoor grills and multiple outdoor dining tables. The beds are super comfortable with flat screens everywhere. I brought my usual “extras” for the week, but Lisa and Joe had already planned for our every need.

We seldom left the premises, enjoying all the features of the property. Shopped at Publix in Marathon and cooked outside for almost every meal. We walked the beach, snorkeled down at the rock groin, lounged at the pool, and sat on the upstairs balcony and watched the stars every evening. We do recommend taking a snorkel boat trip with Captain Kathy with A Family Fun Boat Tour—one of the few times we left the property.

This was one of the best Keys vacation trips we've had and we've been 11 times now. Already booked this one for next year.

Thank you Lisa and Joe for sharing your beautiful home.

Owner's Response: I am so pleased that my guests get the absolute utmost pleasure out of their vacation time when staying at our beautiful vacation home (not just a vacation rental). We prefer our guests focus on having fun and enjoying the best family vacation experience possible. Its important for us to provide something special for everyone in the family big or small. There has to be options for every guest....The little ones, teenagers, and adults. Staying on the property will most likely be the biggest part of their vacation time and it should always be fun. When it comes to any maintenance issues we are always quick to respond we have resources available to mitigate any problem that may come up. We have been renting our home for over twenty years and have had good fortune to have very fine guests like the people who wrote this lovely guest review. Thats part of our motivation to always update the home and continue to add fun things to do for our guests. Thanks K & V so much for letting us know we succeeded it making your vacation time at our home very special .............Joe &.Lisa

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

A well-decorated house, great view, privacy, and a great pool. You have everything you need here. The owners were quick to address any issues. We have been on many week-long vacations where we were done and ready to go at day 5. Here - we wish we had a second week!

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We (family of 8) had an excellent time. The house was a perfect vacation home with a beachfront view, pool, grills, hot tub, etc and all the extras you could need while on vacation. The owners were great and took care of any and all requests (and more). We are planning on coming back next year and doing it all over again!
