Guestbook comments from the manager

We had an amazing week ! We came down from Pennsylvania to celebrate our mothers 80th birthday. The house was clean and had balloons and a card for her; such a sweet touch. Had a great time sight seeing. It was a great week.

Easy Beezy With a View!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! The home really had anything we could ever need (minus a kitchen trash can?!) and more! Perfectly convenient location in Marathon. Views are incredible, neighborhood peaceful, and the home is beautiful. We enjoyed our morning coffee on the elevated screened in porch, then would head down to the pool for a morning swim. The dock was invaluable and a must for boating convenience. All in all we had an excellent stay and would love to visit again. This home will be our go-to for vacations in the Keys!

Peaceful Stay in the Keys!

  • 5 of 5

If you want to relax, this is the place for you. Very peaceful neighborhood right on the ocean. You can fish, kayak, and snorkel right from your dock. We caught loads of fish from the dock including large snapper and barracuda. You have your own small personal pool and hot tub. We actually saw no neighbors on either side of us for the entire week. Great view of the ocean and the sunsets were amazing. Convenient area for restaurants and shops. If you have your own boat, there is a deep water dock. You cannot access the fourth bedroom from the house without going outside to a private entrance. This might be a plus or minus, however you look at it.

Owner's Response: It is all about the waterfront here in the Keys and I'm glad to know Gulfstar's waterfront lived up to expectations and provided so much enjoyment for your group. Gulfstar certainly is a great area to relax and enjoy the amazing sunsets and endless water views. Thank you for taking time to share your experience.

A week in paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our five children and I had a wonderful week in the keys. We relaxed by the water, but mostly enjoyed all of the activities available to us. We went snorkeling, swimming, paddle-boarding, fishing and kayaking. We even rented a charter boat and went deep-sea fishing...and ate our catch for dinner!

I would recommend this rental. It was clean and private.

This is an excellent home

  • 5 of 5

This property had the most fantastic view of any place that we have stayed in the past 11 years. The house is very nice, with a screened in porch that is very large, where you could eat your meals if you wished. The family room/dining room is very large and comfortable also. This home is also convenient for shopping and restaurants and is located on a quiet street. We are looking forward to returning next year.

Like the title states this property has amazing sunsets! The private dock provided hours of fun whether it be fishing or just watching the all the different fishes in the water. The property was well maintained and clean inside and out. The pool was clean and warm. There was plenty of room for everyone, we had eight family members in the house at once and each had their own space. Mary and Gabby were very helpful after we realized we left some clothes at the house. I would recommend this property to anyone looking to stay on Marathon.
