Our experience at the Yellow Tail villa

5/5 ***** Stayed May 2019

Our family just returned from a spectacular 7 days at the Yellowtail villa. When you see the pictures of this unit online you realize this is a great home. But, when you arrive, you notice that what you had seen in the pictures is in no way manufactured to make the property look better than it does in real life. In fact, you are even more overwhelmed. From the moment you drive up and see the lower level, to the trip up the elevator and the walk up the spiral staircase to the roof, you know you are in a 5 star home. Every room is decorated beautifully with a character of its own. The gulf views from the rooftop are amazing. Also, we rented a boat for 3 days and this unit has it's own docking space. The owner makes sure you have all the information well before your arrival. No horror stories about the owner leaving you with problems. Matt, the owner is very interested to know you are having a good time and also have everything you need. He even has a special treat for you s'more lovers. A basket with all the makings for your roasting marshmallows and chocolate over the fire. My youngest son and his wife who had just married and had their honeymoon in Punta Cana with club privileges said they enjoyed this vacation better than that one. Maybe it was watching the nba playoffs while sitting in the jacuzzi, or their own private elevator that saved them from stairs. Anyway, I will be planning another trip again in the near future, and the Yellowtail villa will be where I come back to.

Guestbook comments from the owner:

From the moment we booked to the day we left, Matt the owner was so helpful and at your disposal 24/7. The house was awesome and you had everything you could ever need. The best boat slip for an easy in and out and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Thank you Matt for opening your home to us and making us feel like family!! Tried many new restaurants, Burdines and Herbies were our 2 favorites! You won’t be disappointed if you book your next vacation at the Yellow Tail Vila!!


Aug 2019

This is one of our favorite keys to visit and found one of our new favorite places to stay. From the hot tub , and barbecue area down stairs to the beautiful accommodations of the three bedroom three bathroom villa up to the rooftop 360* views of the gulf. We love to cook so the kitchen was used everyday and had everything we needed to make the great meals that we caught while we were there for a week. Love the convenience to lobster on the gulf side and the cut right around the corner to get into the Atlantic to snorkel the beautiful reefs and fish in the gulf stream. We will be back and the quick responses from the owner to make sure we arrived safely and to make sure we had everything we needed throughout our stay. This family vacation was one for the records.


Aug 2019

Our stay was wonderful, house was very comfortable and well decorated. We have been in Marathon for many vacations but the fishing off the dock was amazing, best ever! The owner was very friendly and easy to communicate with, also he was very accommodating to all our needs while there. We recommend it!


Jul 2019

wonderful place to stay!


Jul 2019

My family had an amazing stay here! Matt was available at a moments notice for questions and always replied to our texts within 5 minutes. The fireworks from our rooftop deck were unbelievable. The grandkids loved being just steps away from the pool . It was a great week!


Jun 2019

My family and I were fortunate enough to get to spend 2 weeks in this incredible home and we hated to leave. The home is very comfortable and the perfect place to relax and unwind. The pictures shown don’t do justice. This home is located in a secure, gated, small community of only 14 homes. We met several wonderful people while we were there and almost everyday someone would come by asking to check out the “tiki bar” and said the decoration and setup of the patio area on this house is the best out of all them! We loved going out to the pier and watching all the sea life. During the day we would see several types of fish and at night is when all the big crabs and lobsters would come out and we saw several small octopus too. We would suggest bringing flash lights for night time fish watching. Fishing off the pier was also good, and there’s all kinds of gear in the fishing closet. Everything you need for a great, relaxing vacation is here. We cannot wait to return!


Jun 2019

We have never rented on Marathon before and I am so glad we did! The house was great. We had the amazing rooftop sun deck. Great area to hangout and enjoy sunrise or sunsets. Ground floor the hot tub and Tiki bar was so much fun. Matt had so many great recommendations for eating . We could fish off the dock and even snorkel off the dock. Manatee and all kinds of fish were spotted. The accommodations were great and the rollaway beds were a welcome addition. Great property and we hope to return soon.

Amazing villa!

We had a fabulous week at the villa! The villa was perfect for our family. We took our boat and the boat slip was very convenient to the home! Everything we needed to clean our catch was readily available at the dock! Our favorite thing to do was to sit in the hanging chairs on the deck of the 2nd floor. These chairs are amazing! The rooftop offers amazing views! We loved to sit up here day and night! Also, loved the fire pit and making s’mores each night! Definitely recommend this fabulous villa for anyone’s stay in Marathon! Perfect location!

We loved the Yellowtail Villa!

We spent 2 fun weeks at the Yellowtail Villa with another family, had an amazing time! So nice to escape the stress of the pandemic in such a clean, well taken care of villa. We were able to enjoy a neighbor’s fabulous 4th of July fireworks from the rooftop, which was also the perfect place to watch the sunsets. The pool being so close and the boat slip were both great benefits, in addition to the hot tub and bar. Matt was beyond attentive and always quick to respond. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, will definitely be back again!

Great Tropical Place To Stay!

Don’t hesitate to book this unit… It is ideal for your stay in Marathon! Tropical decor everywhere from downstairs with the bar and hot tub, through the main floors and up to the fabulous rooftop make you know you are on a vacation! We loved having our coffee on the rooftop watching the sunrise, and then a drink or dessert on the rooftop watching the sunset! We rented a boat which was docked right out front making it very easy access to both the Atlantic and the Gulf. The owners have thought of everything to make your vacation wonderful,

Awesome Vacation at Yellowtail

We had a great time on vacation in Marathon last week. The property was in a great location and the house was impeccable. We were fishing in a 27' Sea Hunt which fit at the dock perfectly. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this property. Also, the owner Matt was great to work with!

Absolutely amazing!

The yellow tail was a great house with amazing views very close to the open ocean. The house is fully stocked with everything you need from the kitchen to the linens. The upscale Hammock chairs outside the master bedroom were a great escape after a long day out on the boat.A few comments from the family:Great location, clean, well laid out and furnished. - It was nice & we had a good view - Each floor was an adventure for the kids, from the elevator to the rooftop deck. - We were out to marathon reef fishing within minutes every day. More importantly, we were catching fish every day! - Snorkeling the lighthouse was amazing. My two-year-old grandson looked underneath the water for the first time and said “wow there’s a lot of fishies down there!”

There were (3) couples and we all had plenty of space.Matt was so helpful and efficient in anything we asked of him. We would stay here again in a heart beat. Excellent location, excellent place, excellent rental agent. Thanks again Matt for a wonderful vacation!!!

We recently stayed at he The Yellowtail Villa Condo, which is amazingly decorated, stunningly clean and very relaxing. Location so close to the ocean and pool with exceptional views from the roof top and then down to the fun tiki bar and hot tub on the lower level for evening fun and relaxing during the day. Location to restaurants, shops and other attractions is great. Wonderful place to gather with friends and family. Matt (owner) has been great to work and provided great options to experience while in Marathon as well our drive from Miami. This is must see condo. We will visit again.

Yellow Fin Villa is the place to stay

Yellow Fin in Marathon Key is the place . Very clean and well maintained. Decor is awsome and island friendly. Centrally located in the Keys makes day trips a short drive away. Relax at the pool, hot tub, dock or the roof top deck. Enjoy the sunset. The view is fantastic. Plenty of good places to eat close by: Florida Keys Steak and Lobster, Savanahs Ice Cream Parlor, Stuffed Pig. Communications with management is easy and responsive. They care about your comfort and happiness. The elevator was very much appreciated, being a DV. Definitely going back.

Great House Perfect Location

This house has it all. Waterfront, boat dock, amazing ground floor bar with a hot tub, roof patio with wonderful views of the Gulf. Swimming pool practically outside of the front door and the elevator was a life saver to get to all the floors. It was decorated to the hilt, all the beds were super comfy. Each floor has it's own water heater and furnace so adjusting temps to fit your own needs wasn't an issue. Plenty of room in the kitchen and had everything we needed including a stocked pantry with basics and plenty of spices. Travel mugs for coffee or cocktails available for use plus a full size washer and dryer with laundry soap, bleach and dryer sheets. Other than food and drinks there wasn't anything we needed to buy. All this inside of a gated community. Matt was great to work with and gave us plenty of contacts for people to see for different excursions as well as points of interest not to miss. We never wanted to leave. We will be back and are already planning for our next trip.

Comfortable home in a prime location

We spent a gorgeous week at Yellowtail in January. The house is lovely and in a great location. You can walk to several restaurants and it’s close to groceries and supplies. We went to Key West twice which is an easy drive for a fun day away. We also rented a boat for a few days. The wind kept us from exploring the seas but it was still nice for catching fish in the cut. Matt was flexible and great to rent from.

Relaxing start to a new year!

Our stay at the yellowtail villa was nothing short of perfect! Cute home, love the views from the rooftop, especially the sunset!! Views on everything level are so relaxing and calming! Spent a lot of time outside on one of the levels while there. The swings outside the master bedroom are my favorite! We actually ordered some for ourselves for our beach home! Close to beach and grocery stores and only an hour from key west. Will definitely be back to stay again!

Memorable Family Christmas vacation

What can I say... our stay was great! We have been vacationing in the keys for over 15 years and this was the first place we agreed we would book again. From the welcoming lower level to the refreshing roof top deck, we couldn’t have ask for more. Even though the weather did not cooperate during our stay, we were able to enjoy the villas covered lower level tiki hut, fishing off the dock and a quick swim in the pool in between the rain. Our family Christmas vacation will be one we will talk about for some time to come. Thanks Matt for being so accommodating and letting us enjoy your villa.

Awesome place to stay

The Yellow Tail Villa was a super awesome place to stay. The kids enjoyed looking at the amazing sea life right off the dock....we saw lobsters, eels, and cool fish. The condo was spacious and comfortable. Matt is easy to work with.

Awesome Keys Retreat

My family had never been to the Florida keys and this home in Marathon was the perfect place to experience them. Literally steps from the golf of Mexico the yellowtail villa was much more than expected. Clean, plenty of room for a family of 6, ample amenities and most importantly a place to relax and feel the golf breeze. The roof top terrace is a definite bonus for a cup of coffee early in the morning or a cocktail watching the sun set. Highly recommended. Thanks Matt !

Wonderful Marathon Vacation

First, I would like to say that there is no deception in the photos that are showing this property. If anything, the home and amenities are much nicer. The lower level that has the hot tub just screams fun and time for relaxing. But this is only the beginning. The 2nd and 3rd levels are designer living spaces. Every room designed perfectly for your keys experience. You arrive at the living areas in your own private elevator. From the upper living area you can make your way to the outdoor deck and up to the rooftop where there is a firepit to roast the provided s'mores. Also, you have several separate seating areas. You can also use the mounted telescope to view the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. Also, within 50 feet of the home is a great pool overlooking the Gulf. This may have been my first vacation at the Yellow Tail Villa, but it won't be my last. If you are considering a vacation to Marathon and are doing a home search, just stop searching and save your time when you get to this one. You will not be disappointed.

Perfection

I can’t imagine a better place to spend a week in the Keys than Yellowtail. The villa looked amazing online, and was even better in person. With all of the fun things to do in the Keys, we found the most enjoyable days were the ones that we stayed “home”. The rooftop was perfect for watching both sunrise, and sunset. The pier offered great fishing, and the fisherman’s closet had all that was needed. Everything about the place was perfect. I can’t imagine staying anywhere else while in the Keys.

Amazing vacation in Marathon

What can I say...this property was terrific. We have rented before in the keys but this had it all. Great location, a great pool, and the ocean right off the back. We could snorkel and fish. We had a manatee sighting. The sunsets were amazing and the view from the top deck or the fun sitting in the jacuzzi enjoying the tv and tiki bar. Matt is a terrific host. He can offer up great recommendations for food and fun. He greeted us at the property and was there to make sure we had a fabulous time. It was amazing. We will be back and will definitely be staying at The Yellowtail!!!

relaxing

We stayed at the yellowtail oct. 11-27 2019 the villa was clean and the owner Matt was available to text at anytime. The elevator sure was great saved us a lot of up and down stairs. The fishing was great my wife caught a 6 ft nurse off the dock and a bunch of snappers too. Chartered the Snapshot Charter with captain Andrew Hall out of Duck Key Resort 4 days and killed it.Caught a ton of fish. Call Matt Lee at Yellowtail Villa he will fix you up with a great vacation.

Perfect Vacation at YellowTail Villa

Our family of 5 had an awesome time at the YellowTail Villa this past week. The villa had all the amenities we could want and more. It was decorated very nicely, the furnishings were modern, and the home was well-equipped with lots of nice extra touches (Keurig coffee maker, large flat screen TVs, beach towels, beach chairs, corn hole boards, fishing equipment, everything we needed in the kitchen, and the elevator - game changer for a home with 3 levels!). We had plenty of room for everyone to have their own space and not feel overcrowded. We rented kayaks from Keys Kayaks, and they were delivered to the villa within 10 minutes of our phone call to them. They also picked them up at the end of the week, which was so convenient. Each day we went kayaking, the teenagers swam and snorkeled in the water and along the reef, and we fished right off the dock just steps away from the villa. We were a little concerned when we made our reservation at YellowTail that the shared pool might be overcrowded, but we found it to be the complete opposite. We made fast friends with the neighbors in the villas around us and by the end of the week, YellowTail felt like our home away from home. It was surprising how quiet the community was to have 14 units in it. We enjoyed cocktails at the tiki bar and sitting in the hot tub while we grilled freshly-caught fish and other foods on the large gas grill. In the evenings, we would make our way to the rooftop deck to watch the sunset, sit by the fire pit, listen to music and roast s'mores. It was an incredibly relaxing week and we didn't have to worry about a thing while we were there. Matt answered our questions and resolved the one issue we had with the hot tub quickly and courteously. As Matt put it best, we feel like "we will always have a friend in the Keys."

Amazing Week! Beautiful home

Stayed Jul 2019 Kristen S. From beginning to end, definitely the easiest process in which to rent a vacation home. The communication was great and many helpful tidbits of information was given. The home was very welcoming from the surprise of all the makings for s’mores to be used on the rooftop deck fire pit to the fancy designs made of the bath linens left to welcome us. We fished from the dock and the kids caught snapper, lobster were seen swimming amongst the rocks, eels gave them a challenge by snapping their hooks, and the neighbors caught a small bonnet head shark from the dock. Definitely an amazing adventure for all this week. The location of the villa is perfect to restaurants, the marina, and grocery store. You may even get a surprise from the iguana that came to visit us each morning in the palm tree from the second balcony. He will eat potatoes and eggs if you toss them within each on a limb. I definitely recommend the Yellowtail Villa 10/10!!
