Sombrero Beach is a turtle nesting beach and from April through October it is not unusual to have Loggerhead turtles, among other species of turtles, coming to the beach at night to lay their eggs. During this period we do not have tables or benches on the beach so we do not interfere with turtle nesting activities.

Our group had the Poke, Mahi grilled sandwich, cheeseburger sliders, and grill.
Highly recommend the two items we tried – burgers and fried shrimp. Quaint little local place right on the water the best French fries!
Make sure you buy either Avon's "Skin So Soft" or Neutrogena's "Body Oil" to keep the no-see-ums/bugs away. They start to bite as soon as the sun goes down.
The best snorkeling is at Sombrero Reef near the Lighthouse.
Don't touch the coral reefs! The coral reefs are dying because people touch the coral - please don't ever touch it or it will die! The ocean fish needs the coral reef to survive. We are loosing our coral reefs because people don't realize you can't touch coral. People who try and catch lobster find them in the coral and instead of using the Lobster 'Ticklers' to coach them out they go in with their hads and touch the coral which kills the coral.
Don’t forget good protective sunglasses – they're a must in the Keys and all of Florida. The white intensity of the sun is different than you may be used to in other parts of the US and the world. Protect yourself from eye strain and headaches and bring polarized sunglasses with UV blocking glass.
And don’t forget your sun block and sun block clothing too.

Great Family Vacation Home
We traveled to Marathon for my cousin's wedding in Islamorada. There were 11 of us that stayed in this home and it was perfect for that amount of people. Everyone had their own bedroom and bathroom and it was very comfortable! The kitchen layout and living layout worked beautifully and having two refrigerators is genius! The pool, the canal view and the patio were more than we could have asked for during our stay. The beach is very close and we walked down there one time but we spent most of our time at the pool and the house. The only negative I can say is the kitchen needs to be better equipped for a house that sleeps 14 people. There were no measuring cups or spoon and very little plastic wear options. We travel a lot and every vacation we've ever stayed in has been pretty well stocked in the kitchen - even offering salt and pepper. This house - we had to buy salt/pepper, plastic wear, a bottle opener, wine opener, can opener and measuring cups. There were also no dish cloths to wash dishes or to wipe off counters. I'm guessing because it's newer they just haven't stocked up on those items yet.Also, I think being so close to the beach offering beach chairs would be a nice touch.

Hi Whitney Thank you for the kind review. We pride ourselves in providing the best vacation rental for families and large groups in the Florida Keys. We are one the best locations to so close to the most popular beach Sombrero Beach and we are on the best canals of water where we don't have any problems with the smelly seagrass not like the houses across from us. We checked our house all the the beach chairs and other household items you said where missing someone put in the kitchen downstairs
This house wonderful! Even better than the pictures. The layout allows for a large group. The outdoor kitchen is a gathering place. Many hours were spent relaxing at the hot tub and pool. Our 30 ft boat easily fit at the dock even with the owners boat there. Close to all the stores and the best beach around. We will absolutely be back again to enjoy this place.
