“Fairytale better than the reality”

Reviewed 18 Jun 2012

Our family stayed last month and the views are wonderful. Snorkeling was the best, fishing was okay. We were told not to use the boat for fishing and we were only given 1 gallon of gas anyway. Wish we would have known this ahead of time as this was the point of us renting the island - to fish! Deck surrounding house is not bare foot friendly. Pulled out planks of wood from our 5 yr. Olds foot and constant reminders to put sandals on there after for everyone. I would not recommend this for small children as we had to constantly take our 2 1/2 year old everywhere with her life jacket on of course. Very tiring trying to keep up with her. The fairytale pictures of staying on your own island ,yet close to shore were better than the reality of being there. Expected more for the price, at least a fishing boat to use.

Response from the owner The Island is a spectacular place and actually we do not mind if the boat is used however there is not a radio on board so we suggest that you bring a radio with you and use the boat. The caretaker was probably being cautious. There are plenty of places to get more gas if you were to so desire, of course you are responsible for the boat. We always recommend sandals when walking the island because you never know what you could step on. I hope you will give us another try in the future. Also know the dock is being replaced soon. I hope you enjoyed the fantastic views and all of the luxuries inside the house itself as well as the fantastic diving all around the house.

“Took our hearts!”

Reviewed 7 Feb 2012

How many people can say they have rented an island? What a fantastic vacation for our family! The island and the landscape is incredible. At times it felt like we had a resort all to ourselves. The sea life in the " mote" alone was amazing and a valuable education for our children. The longer we stayed the more we got accustom to island living. Breathtaking views from every direction and the ocean lulls you to sleep. The last day two pods of dolphin swam around the island as if to say goodbye...We will be back!

“A great experience”

Reviewed 19 Dec 2011

My wife and I and 6 Friends took a trip to the Florida Keys and rented a private island home called East Sister Rock Island off Sombrero Beach in Marathon Florida. It was absolutely incredible, We were greeted by the caretaker who was very nice and he took us about 5 minutes by boat to a little island paradise. Everything was just as they said it was, actually much nicer than I thought it would be. The house was great and had everything we needed and very comfortable. The first day, some were kayaking and some out on the Skiff diving and fishing. Thanks Dave and you were right, we will never forget this vacation.

“One of the best vacations we've ever had!”

Reviewed 19 Dec 2011

This place is so unique! My own island, with a boat, great fishing, beautiful location, and Dave Tarr was a terrific host! It has everything which is amazing because it's totally self sufficient and off the grid. I think the best thing about it is the fact you're on an island of your very own! Gorgeous views, just the wind and the sea, complete privacy. I'll definitely do this again!
