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!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I'm not much for words, but this was a fantastic location to stay. The pool, bicycles, kayaks, the view and fishing from the dock were all better than expected. We have already booked this location again for next year. Could not have been better....

Your home and property is beautiful , even the pictures don't do it justice. The pool is awesome!!!!

Dear Phil and Linda,

Our 10 days at your home was amazing. We enjoyed the pool and fishing off the dock every day. Lonna and I turned 60 this year and were looking for a special vacation and your home and property are beyond words. We especially appreciated the honest and hands on reports from you regarding the situation after Irma. We are so happy we stuck with our plans and ended up with the vacation of a lifetime. We relaxed in the pool enjoying your landscape and

the friendly Iguanas also catching a wide variety of fish off the dock which also supplied a few great meals, we even saw a manatee relaxing around the dock. We can easily recommend your property to anyone that is looking to grab a little slice of paradise in the Keys and come away with the best memories imaginable. We enjoyed your input and suggestions for restaurants and activities and even though some of the parks were closed and there was lots of debris in the area you helped make our stay very special. Thank You so much for everything we look forward to a return visit soon.

Sincerely,

Steve and Lonna Nykamp

Owner's Response: Steve and Lonna, We are so glad you had a wonderful time at our home and all of the wonderful feedback. We also love it when manatees visit the dock. We recently had a family of three in front of our property. Hope to have you back again soon! Phil and Linda p.s. Thank you for sending us the fishing pictures - you really had some beautiful Mutton snapper to take home with you.

Wonderful house and location. Everything website represented.

  • 5 of 5

This property felt like you were staying at a friend's vacation home in lieu of a rental house. Phil and Linda have done a great job with furnishings, decorations, landscaping and pool. Property is well maintained. Although area was recently hit by hurricane Irma, area is recovering well. We are looking forward to returning next year!

This place is beautiful inside and out! Everything looks as good or better then the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

We go to the Keys every year and this house was by far the best we have stayed in. It looks just like the pictures. Location was great, views were beautiful, neighbors were friendly, felt like home! We enjoyed the pool and the kayaks daily. The owners were great to work with and we appreciate them opening their home up to us for a wonderful vacation. We will be back!

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

Great property for a family vacation. It was equipped with everything needed to ensure our stay was great. Kayaks, bikes, fishing poles, dock (short ride to the ocean), and a large pool. We will definitely be back.
