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!

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!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't ask for a better place to stay in the keys, The property fitted our needs completely. We've stayed at other rental places in Marathon for many years and by far this one is tops!!!

We reserved this place for next year as well.

Thanks for a great stay!!!!

Tastefully appointed & maintained "Paradise"

  • 5 of 5

Ever stayed in a vacation rental that didn't quite live up to the posted photos on the website? Mockingbird Pointe EXCEEDS the beautiful pictures portrayed! This was our second rental season and even more amenities had been added. The owners are conscientious & take pride in their property. The neighborhood is quiet but close to shopping, restaurants, & tourist destinations. The house design, with a wrap-around screened-in porch, is delightful for viewing the channel, reading, or just relaxing. The kitchen is well stocked & the interior is tasteful & comfortable - attention has been paid to every detail, making it truly a "home away from home." We have rebooked for a third season - a slice of paradise in the Keys. Thank you, Linda & Phil

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.
