Emmaculate house with something to do for everyone
Sunset catch was everything my family hoped for and so much more! 4 generations ranging from 85-9 gathered here over April vacation and had an incredible experience. There is truly something to do for everyone and the best part was the house was fully stocked from snorkeling gear to giant tubes to float in the water all we had to do was pack our bags and enjoy the weather. I would highly recommend not only this house but the location as well we were close to everything (dolphin encounters, restaurants, bars, shops) while feeling like we were all alone in paradise. Watching the sunset from the end of the dock was magical and the waters below are crystal clear so we had an up close view of the impressive ecosystem the Keys have to offer. Sunset catch will definitely go down as one of the best vacations I’ve ever been on!

Where do I start.....
From the moment we drove through the gate till the minute we left, nothing but pure appreciation for the home and all that it offered. We enjoyed, the screened in porch with rocking chairs and over head ceiling fans. A kitchen that had everything we could possibly need. A dock that offered fishing (we ate snapper every other day), snorkeling and kayaking. The guys especially liked the bait freezer, cleaning table and convenient utility room storage. A sunrise and sunset view that were worth every penny spent. Plenty of room and privacy in the home. A pool that was clean and well cared for. Quiet neighborhood that was fun to ride our bikes through as well as easy access to the Overseas Heritage Biking Trail. Just a short drive into Marathon for all our shopping needs. Alida was a pleasure to work with and readily available to answer any concerns we might have had. As others have commented on, there is no shortage of "turtle grass" but it is called Grassy Key and we did not experience the terrible smell that others complained of. We did arrive in time for a bumper crop of "noseeums" this year. This is our 6 or 7th year of vacationing in late April-early May but this is the first year that these little creatures have tried to ruin our fun.. Some of our party was more sensitive than others and we did discover that Off Cutter worked pretty well. Overall, another great trip to the Florida Keys and I would not hesitate to return to Sunset Catch and hope to again next year.
