A slice of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, son , and I spent 10 days here in early November. This was our first time visiting the Keys and we couldn't have chosen a better spot to spend it!

The house is beatiful and has lots of great features. The wrap around screened porch was perfect for enjoying a morning breakfast and an evening supper. The renovations to add a second bathroom and addiotnsl beds is well done and makes great use of the space.

We enjoyed the pool area and spent lots of time in the pool or on the splash deck. The pool is large and has a deep end making it nice for swimming or playing games. There are quite a few pool toys provided as well. The tiki hut was nice to get out of the sun and there were lots of good quality loungers.

The landscaping was beautiful and was interesting to walk around and look at. The dock was perfect for docking our boat and had lights for nighttime use. The access to the ocean was only a 10-15 minute drive down the canal.

The location at the end of a road made it extremely quiet during the day and night, which was great for sleeping.

When we come back to the Keys we will definitely stay here again.

Lovely, unique home

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here the last ten days of September. We come to the Keys every year and bring our boat for diving, lobstering, and fishing. We have stayed at many homes over four years, and this was by far the best. It was difficult to leave.

The home itself is beautiful and unique with its wrap around, screened-in porch and wooden cupola. Since the owners seem to stay often, it is well-equipped and filled towels and little details you always seem to need on trips. The master bed is comfortable. There is a gas range. The cable TV offers many channels. The indoor space makes this house ideal for a couple or a family. It may be a little cramped for two couples.

The grounds are beautiful and professionally landscaped, and a pleasure to look at it. The pool has a great beach entry with umbrella, and has a chiller! The chiller is worth the stay alone. The new tiki hut provides a lot of shade.

The dock is well equipped with shower, two hoses (one at the fish cleaning station) and lights (also a bright light at the cleaning station.) The dock is very well set-up for people who bring their boat and fish. It is in a well-protected deep lagoon, about a 15-minute idle to the Ocean.

The convenient location cannot be beat! Two minute car ride to Publix/Winn Dixie/CVS/Kmart (a must if you are fishing.) It's close to everything.

The owners are very attentive and helpful and have put a lot of work into their home.

We could not stop talking about how much we loved the home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful detailed review. We hope you come back soon. We have found that when traveling with another couple there is ample room for up to six with the two master suites, one with a queen and two twin beds and their own private bath.

Mockingbird Pointe exceeded our expectations we had gotten from pictures and descriptions.

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect for our week long stay in Marathon. The pool that had just recently been added was one of the best features. We had a boat rented for the week and were able to keep it at the private dock located at the property, this was also very nice. The house is located on a very quiet culdesac and very private. We enjoyed everything about the house and if our vacation should be in Marathon again we will try our best to stay at same location.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! This is a beautiful home that is perfect for a family of 5 or 6. The water frontage is beautiful. The wrap around porch is perfect for morning coffee, outdoor meals and an evening view of the sunset. Linda & Phil have thought of almost everything!

Linda & Phil are very gracious hosts. They were immediately responsive to our needs. We definitely recommend this as a wonderful home away from home and hope to stay here again in the future.

Great House!

  • 4 of 5

Great location in the middle of The Keys, with easy access to everything. Our family enjoyed riding bikes to Sombrero beach one mile from the property. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood, which we liked. It is easily accessible to everything, grocery store, liquor store, pharmacy, lots of restaurants, etc. We enjoyed quite a few of the restaurants in the area: Sparky's, 7 Mile Grill, Sunset Grille. We also got fish from Keys Fisheries Market and Marina to cook at home, which was delicious. We also enjoyed visiting the Bahia Honda State Park and the Sea Turtle Hospital. The property has everything anyone would need. We especially enjoyed the wrap around porch. The kids enjoyed fishing off the dock almost every morning we were there. The owners were very helpful and responded to us very quickly on any questions or concerns we had. We hear they are putting in a pool which will be a perfect addition! We would highly recommend this house to anyone! We hope to have the opportunity to visit again!
