Great place, though there are other buildings nearby, it still feels like your own place. Great spot to bring a boat, right next to the Vaca cut to go either bay side or ocean side. About 2 miles to the Marathon Sandbar on the Atlantic side just off Curry Hammock State Park.

Nice place for the price. Roomy. Some bugs but it is Florida. Make sure you bring all the basics.

Great host. Mike helped us with whatever we needed. House was very nice and as advertised. Great dock and very easy ocean access through a main channel. Easily was able to bring our 34 ft boat in and out.
