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!

So sad so be leaving such an amazing house. The location, the house and outside pool area were absolutely amazing. My family and I truly enjoyed everything that this house had to offer. We would definitely rent this property again.

We loved this home and the owners were a delight to deal with!

This home is spectacular. The outdoor area truly makes this vacation rental. The tropically landscaped pool area complete with hammock, tiki hut, pool and boat dock make you feel like you're at an exclusive resort! The views of the sunset and colorful skies are breathtaking. The home is comfortable and has a quaint tropical charm. The wrap around patio was great for enjoying morning coffee while taking in the views. I would highly recommend this home to any family looking to enjoy the best of what Marathon has to offer!
