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!

This Home is exactly as Described

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay in the Keys, and what a wonderful choice. The house was beautifully landscaped, comfortable, quite, private and a great location with tons of character, loved the wrap-around porch that provided all of us the comfort to enjoy being outdoor during a big rain-thunderstorm that passed.

I had called to cancel our trip after the hurricane in September 2017 thinking this beautiful property would be destroyed, and was immediately contacted by the owners reassuring me that clean up was in effect. You would never know such a terrible storm happened, thank god We did not cancel.

Thank you Philip and Linda for that great experience ! Love your home.

Sincerely,

The Haydens

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review. Also for trusting us with your vacation plans after hurricane Irma and for helping to get the word out that the Keys are back. We are so glad you had a great first visit to Marathon and the Florida Keys! Hopefully you will be be able to join us for many more! p.s. We also just love watching thunder storms and nature's fireworks from the screen porch. Phil and Linda

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home and beautiful property. From relaxing by the pool, to fishing from the dock, to all the activities near by in town to take advantage of, Marathon and Mockingbird Point had it all! And the owners, Phil and Linda, were only a simple text or phone call away with any questions we had during the week, very clear they want you to enjoy your vacation as much as possible. Absolutely recommend this property to anyone looking for a fun, relaxing, and secluded get away!

LITTLE PIECE OF HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5

Phil and Linda...we had a wonderful, but most important..relaxing time

staying in your home. Our jobs are very hectic and your home allowed us to feel we were isolated in a private outside oasis and to decompress from the business of life. Beds were very comfortable, house was clean, view is amazing. Loved being able to take out the kayaks in the lagoon and bike down to Sombrero beach. We loved it all.... If I had to pick 1 favorite thing..no 2, about the house specifically.... It would be the door/windows and the hammock swing. I love the fact that the windows are actually doors that open and are everywhere..allowing you to feel the breeze from outside throughout the whole house. We had them open the whole time we were there. The breeze was amazing with 20 mph winds...so no AC needed much. I could go on and on. Thank you for sharing your home.

Wonderful family home

  • 5 of 5

146 Mockingbird is a wonderful home. Our family fished from the dock, bicycled to the beach, walked to the supermarket, kayaked around the neighborhood, enjoyed the screened-in porch in the morning, midday, and evening, tied up the rental boat to the dock, walked to the beach, slept well, and enjoyed the pool all hours of the day. This was our thirtieth year of spending spring break in Marathon and staying in this house was very special.
