We purchased this house after renting in the Keys for many years, we got tired of looking so hard for good quality, clean homes to rent which were and are still very difficult to find. If you are looking for something 'nice' that the actual house looks 'better' than the pictures and video, that will provide for your family and friends a vacation where memories will be made, that will last a lifetime and that is impeccably clean inside-out, then this is your rental.
For further information or questions, contact owner-manager,
This is our only vacation house, we live only 1.5 hours away and we take care of the house as well as our main home. We have a handyman and his wife that live close by and are constantly doing stuff to the house, from cleaning, to maintaining, preventative care and I am also constantly " tweaking " the house and updating and replacing everything that is needed.
This is our joy and pride and we spare no expense to keep it up and maintain it.
Why Kids Love It
Kids love it and adults too because of the diversity of the house, amenities, and location. For the die-hard fishing and diving people, it is very close to access to the ocean. Less than 7 to 9 minutes to the ocean access, even less to the bay. For those that don't participate in the above you have bicycles in the house to ride around the neighborhood, go to the private beach on the kayak, ghanoe, or standup paddleboard, rest or take a nap in one of the 3 hammocks at the house, go to downtown Islamorada, a short ride to the many shops, restaurants, cafe's, stores, nail & hair salons, spa's, grocery stores, ice cream places, souvenir stores, marinas to buy fresh fish, hotels, visit the museum of diving, theater of the sea and much more.
These are just some of the reasons kids will love it and adults too.
Islamorada is the sportfishing capital of the world. We are located in White Marlin Beach subdivision with a private community beach on the bayside that is pristine with a beautiful white sandy beach.
Excellent restaurants, shops, stores in downtown Islamorada 3 to 6 miles north.
Excellent fishing and diving in the area.
Attractions Within Walking Distance
White Marlin Beach is our private community beach just 6 blocks from the house on the bayside. It is a pristine white sand beach very rare in the Florida Keys. You can go on the kayak, standup paddleboard on ghanoe available at the house for your use.
Anne's beach is just a few blocks south if of us the ocean side, it is a public beach where you wind usually find a lot of windsurfers.
Mobil grocery store and the cafeteria is at the entrance for our subdivision and it is a local 7 - 11 for purchasing certain groceries and food, very convenient.

Love this House
"We were looking for a quiet place to relax and snorkel. The villa is just as lovely as the pictures. Anything you would need is provided. The grounds are shady and comfortable and the location is quiet. We canoed in the canal and saw Manatee. We bicycled to the beach in the evening. We snorkeled all around Islamorada and out of Key Largo, an amazing coral and fish. The Villa owners were always available and helpful. We rent on trip advisor frequently and we can highly recommend Villa Marlin."

Beautiful Home awesome place to stay!
"Villa Marlin is beautiful (the pictures do not lie), gorgeous grounds and the location is perfect for reaching the bay or the ocean! The amenities were AWESOME - from all the kitchen items to having use of the fishing equipment, kayak, small boat and paddleboard made our vacation perfect! Access to the private sandy beach was a great added bonus! Mr. Abella (owner) was so accommodating and provided many recommendations that were ALL great! The island of Islamorada and this vacation home was PARADISE and we are already making plans to return!!"
