“Vacation of a lifetime!”
I can't say enough good things about this home. It was beautiful, clean, and peaceful. The only thing that might be considered a down side is that all of the bedrooms are located upstairs, but that was not a problem for us. Brandi at Freewheeler Realestate was wonderful. She was prompt with answers to questions, friendly and professional. The home-owner obviously wants to see to it that the people staying in their home are well taken care of. Everything was great all the way down to the fluffy beach towels. We will definitely look at staying at this home again.
The Florida Keys are so much fun and so very casual. The house was a great way to get our family together for a week and we all enjoyed ourselves, I could have stayed for a month. The guys all went fishing and the rest of us floated in the pool and read. Great restaurants nearby and the food was terrific. Can't wait till next year!
“It was really nice...”
We had a blast...we took it upon ourselves to clean the beaches but overall we enjoyed our stay.
“Our month of rest and fun!”
My husband and I stayed here for the month of January 2012. Weather was great, in fact, perfect. This house was very comfortable, and just a great place to rest. The pool was awesome! This house does need some updating and the pond was in bad shape. We did try to keep the debris off the beach area, but because of location and winds, it was useless. That was very close to the water, we still had clean area to lounge in adirondack chairs. The grounds are beautiful and you are just across the road from bike paths, which we biked many times. The people at Freewheeler were very nice and helpful in any situation. We had a wonderful, restffull, peaceful and fun time at this home! Thank you!
“Very good and wonderfully relaxing”
Only one thing could be changed. The beach needs to be cleaned from time to time , we do realize it is nature with the seaweed but it becomes a bit smelly. But the rest is a 10!!!
Response from the manager Thank you for your kind words, and your feed back! The seaweed coming in on the waters edge and be a bit of a challange at times! The care taker tries very hard to make sure it's perfect for every guest. A little difficult depending on which way the breeze is going! :-) So glad you finally got to stay at the house you have been wanting to get into for 5+ years! We look forward seeing you and your family again in 2013! Take care!!!
“A Week in Paradise”
My husband and I, 3 of our grown children, 1 daughter-in-law, and sister and brother-in-law spent a week at the Markeysa to celebrate my 60th birthday and our son's 30th birthday. We had a fabulous week. The house was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. There was plenty of room for everyone. The guest house was perfect for my son and daughter-in-law who wanted to sleep late and not be bothered by the early risers in the family. The view of the beach from the pool was amazing. We spent alot of time outside enjoying the beautiful surroundings. We did alot of cooking, and the kitchen was very well equiped with everything we needed. My only complaint is the seaweed and debris that was on the beach. It was suppose to be cleaned prior to our arrival, but when we got there it was a mess. I can understand that the seaweed is a natural phenomenon, but the trash and debris should have been picked up. Not only was this unsightly, but it smelled bad. We did not spend as much time on the beach as we would have liked to because of the smell.
“Relaxing in Islamorada”
Everything was very easy with the check-in/checkout process as it was Sunday and all we had to do was pick-up and drop-off keys at the lockbox. The house was a wonderful home. Plenty of room for all my family with plenty of places to sit and visit. We loved the privacy of the beach! The kitchen was well stocked. Loved the fact that water toys were at the property and we didn't have to run out and buy some. I am a clean freak so there are definitely things that I feel need to be addressed and can be improved upon in this home and think Freewheeler should regulate in their properties. The carpet needs to go. It's a low pile shag carpet that was awful (located in the bedrooms). The floors should be tile or wood throughout the house. The walls of the stairwell and the trim work on the stairs was dinged, dirty and scuffed and understandably so because of renters toting luggage up and down the stairs and not being careful; however, this should be monitored and repainted on a regular basis as it would give the house a cleaner, tidier, fresher appearance. Old, worn towels should be replaced and for consistency all towels should be white. Lastly, the wood cabinets in the kitchen need to be redone and again just so the house has a clean, crisp feeling the cabinets should be painted. All the above comments are meant to be constructive criticism comments. They are meant to take the house from being a great vacation home to a marvelous vacation home. So would I stay here again? Yes!
Response from the manager I'm so glad you and your family had a nice vacation at the Markeysa! We appreciate constructive criticism. It helps us do our job better. I think you wil be pleased to know that we had a "hit list" that needed to be done in between guests. Unfortunately, the house was booked back to back for quite some time prior to your arrival. We recently had a small window to get the following accomplished. The Kitchen Cabinets have been redone and look AMAZING. No more Scuff Marks. It's incredible what a Magic Eraser can do! Old towels have been tossed, well... most of them. Some people like to use those for cleaning fish, boating, etc... The only thing we do not have plans on replacing is the carpets. Wood floors on 2nd/3rd floors can sometimes be quite loud. The carpets are cleaned often and are in excellent shape. Thank you again for using Freewheeler Vacations to help book your family vacation in Islamorada. We look forward to seeing you back again next year!
A great place to spend with our adult children. The house was better than the pictures. Loved the beach, pool and well-equipped kitchen. Lots of room for everyone.
“Beauty and Peace”
We had a beautiful, peaceful time in this wonderful home.
“We want to live in the house”
The house was amazing. The view was the best. We all enjoyed the stay. The layout of the house was very comfortable. It was the best vacation. Can't wait to go back.
