We had the most wonderful time in the keys. The island was great, we spent most of the time there, so peaceful. Snorkeling was very good, we even saw a manatee

swim under the dock, and four dolphins came up to the dock another day. Stingrays circled the island every day, they were very colorful.
We will definitely come back again.

It truly was a unique and wonderful vacation.  We had a wonderful time on the island over Christmas.  Jerry was very helpful and accommodating.  It was one of the more relaxing vacations we have had in years, and we even had a few Christmas carolers who came by on kayaks!

Welcome to your very own private tropical island only a few minutes from shore near Banana Bay Resort!  Our 2 bedroom, 2 bath, private tropical island home is located in the tropical turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico off of Marathon in the Florida Keys.  This beautifully furnished property features a host of amenities suitable for every taste, complete with panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico extending from every room of this conch style island home.

Exposed wooden beams adorn the living room's cathedral ceiling, complementing the home's wood and tile floors.  French doors lead from the great room to a screened front porch and to a covered deck.  Our fully equipped kitchen is complete with a breakfast bar.  You can also make use of the outdoor gas grill.  The master suite features a sunken Jacuzzi tub with 2 sided ocean view shower - the perfect way to end a day in paradise!  All utilities (electricity and fresh water) are piped underwater from the mainland, supplying all the comforts of home in this secluded tropical paradise.  Rental includes a small power boat intended for transportation between shore and island.

Landscaped boardwalks surround the home for leisurely strolls around the island.  This ancient fossilized exposed reef features native vegetation of silver buttonwood, black mangroves, sea grapes, and pitch apples which attract a vast variety of migrating and resident bird life.  The crystal clear warm waters of this quintessential Keys location are occasioned by a variety of wild life including visiting dolphins, manatees, parrot and angel fish, roosting pelicans and great herons to name a few.

Just wanted to send an email to say what a truly fantastic time we had on Pretty Joe Rock over Thanksgiving week. We could not have asked for a better experience. The island is secluded enough to spend some long days catching up with my wife and children but literally seconds to the mainland if we decided on other plans. I cannot say how grateful I am to have had that week to have my family truly all to myself. I work in a steel mill and lots of overtime is a part of my week to week life, so the time on Pretty Joe Rock was great time with my family. The home was much bigger than expected and very roomy for our family, with the full kitchen we didn't need to leave the island unless it was in our plans. The kitchen was stocked with basic spices, all cookware, and the home had toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags etc. so it was nice not to have to purchase those items. The jet tub was a great relaxation after a day in the sun. My children loved the snorkeling around the island and the fishing was fantastic. We caught mangrove snapper for Thanksgiving and it was by far the best fish we have ever eaten. Along with the snapper we caught bonnethead sharks, barracuda and a slew of other species. Had our lines broken several times by something that was just too much for us to handle but gave us a great thrill. Thanks so much for supplying us with all the needed fishing and snorkel gear and the kayaks were great for some adventure. My son was able to actually film his underwater experience all week and has video of the environment below the surface. A go pro camera is essential in the keys, inexpensive way to film and take pics while snorkeling or diving. The iguanas on the island were much more entertaining than we would have ever guessed, the kids fed them by hand. For as large as they are we were surprised at how gentle they were when we fed them. For future guests they love small pieces of banana and pineapple or just about any fruit cut into bite size pieces. The boat was just as much fun as anything, fishing and snorkeling in the shallows and fit our needs. Any family looking for some private time with family and a completely self contained vacation convenient to attractions should definitely look into this property. Jon, the property manager in the keys, was a great help also and was immediately available if we needed anything and did a great job getting us out to the island well after midnight during a long day of travel. We have found our only vacation rental in the keys and are so glad we found I highly recommend Bob, Jeanne and the crew at for a vacation to the Florida keys. They went well beyond what any other company ever has for me or my family to ensure our trip was everything we expected.

Have a great day and we will return as soon as we get a chance.
