We had a fabulous time at the villa. The house was extremely clean and comfortable. We had everything we needed. We loved the margarita machine and the sunsets! The kids loved the pool as well. The premises were pristine.... beautiful community. Thank you John Zito for your hospitality.

My friends and I decided to stay here to be in the middle Keys. One hour from Key West one hour from KeyLargo. We could not have picked a better location. It is beautiful the villa was clean and spacious. Full kitchen with everything you need. Back patio overlooking boat slips and full ocean view. Loved watching sunset from there. The management Keys Caribbean were the best very helpful with questions and any need we had. Definitely will be back.

We booked unit 58 in the indigo reef resort and it has been awesome. Sitting on the back porch and seeing the bay and gulf is just wonderful. Unit is as advertised clean, spacious, and up to date. Angel from Coco Plum rentals has been a blessing dealing with, she has gone above and beyond to take care of any questions I have had. She is a keeper please reward her.

67 townhouse units managed by several rental agencies and owners. Beautiful giant heated community pool. Each unit has a 31 ft boat slip. Mattress quality variety from unit to unit. Private gated entrance. We’ve stayed for 6 winters and rented from both packnrelax and cocoa plum. Great restaurant choices within walking distance.

Day One? Manatees mingled at our private dock. Fed sharks & stingrays within walking distance. Caught a barracuda on the first cast, a few steps from the back door. Kids snorkeled in crystal-clear water teeming with marine life, fully supervised as we sipped our cocktails & enjoyed the million-dollar view on the porch. And that’s just the first 24 hours! Villa 63 is a spacious, immaculate, and well-provisioned property conveniently located near all the things that make the Keys so special. All owner correspondence was prompt & questions were quickly answered. They went out of their way to make us feel at home. If you enjoy boating, your dock is RIGHT there. We especially appreciated the fresh water hookup & industrial icemaker for the coolers. No boat? No worries. You can fish & snorkel right off the rocks, or book activities/excursions galore across the street. FL Keys Aquarium is next door, a unique & friendly must-see. The resort’s pool is huge & well-kept, larger than many big resorts we’ve stayed at. Don’t miss out on this special place, can’t wait to return to Villa 63 next year! Niles Family Houston, TX

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in unit 13. The three bedroom townhome was perfect for our group. My husband and I stayed in the master with balcony overlooking the boat dock. We appreciated the king size bed and private bath. We had three little kids sharing the queen size room and two single adult males shared the other bedroom that had two twins. The home had lots of cooking tools and washer and dryer. It was comfortable, clean and modern. The pool was nice and the free ice was a great feature (the machine couldn’t keep up with the demand, but still a nice touch). The boat docks were just outside our room and each had a nice filet table, water nozzle (bring your own hose) and trashcan. We were impressed with how lush and green the grounds were. The place was full for lobster season and everyone was very nice. We’d recommend this place for sure!

If you have a group that wants to head to the Keys, this is your place. We had 50 friends and family with us. Condo was clean and totally ready for use. Grounds are gorgeous. Beautiful sunsets. Parking is slightly tight. Huge pool to accommodate large groups.

We were looking for a location in the middle of The Keys and Indigo Reef was perfect for our family over the first week in July. We have 3 boys (17,17,12) and the bedroom configuration was perfect for us. All bedrooms were upstairs. The master had a King bed and on-suite bathroom with a lovely porch with view of the water sunset-side. One guest room had a queen bed and the other two twins. There was another full bath to be shared by those rooms. Washer and dryer were upstairs as well. The main level had a large area with kitchen, dining, and comfortable couches. WiFi and cable were included, There was a half bath on that level. Use of a boat slip is also included with the stay but we did not have a boat (will rent one next time). The pool area is beautiful and the unit had pool towels to use. Because of the canals on property, may folks were kayaking and paddle boarding right from their unit. Marathon was the perfect location to get to any area of The Keys to spend the day. We went to Key West twice, Key Largo, and Islamorada. 4th of July fireworks on Sombrero Beach were some of the best we have ever seen, great suggestion from our rental company. The only reason I hesitate to give this such a good review is we want to go back again and want the unit to be open.

We spent seven days as a family of five (mom dad and kids ages 10, 13, and 15) at this property in May/June 2018. We stayed in Unit 20 (Salty Fare Too) rented through CocoPlum Vacation Rentals. The only bad thing I have to say about our entire experience was that we had to contend with a tropical storm the first few days of the trip. After that everything was great. First a little about Marathon. It is what I would call a medium-sized fishing town. It has everything you need, but if you are looking for high-end restaurants, etc. I would consider other spots. We personally enjoyed the bohemian charm of the town. Indigo Reef is a great property (especially if you have kids). If you have a boat and want to consider experiencing the Keys, this is the place. Our boat was literally 20 yards off our back porch. All the other guests are quite friendly. The property grounds are well maintained and it has a very large saltwater pool. The views are picture perfect. It's a little shallow getting into canals by boat at low tide, but just trip up and you should be fine. You can be in either the Florida Bay or Atlantic within minutes from this location. Unit 20 was very nice. I wanted to point out the positives of this unit and CocoPlum specifically: - The unit was incredibly clean. The housekeeping staff did an amazing job. - The unit was well stocked with plenty of cooking supplies, utensils, and the other "little things", etc. You often feel like you are staying in a bare-bones rental. We literally didn't have to buy anything for our cooking needs. - CocoPlum provided 8 beach towels which was convenient. - The starter gift basket was a nice touch. - The unit was nicely decorated. I would definitely stay in this unit again and rent from CocoPlum.

Indigo Reef is a great place to rent for a week getaway in the keys. Be careful of which unit you rent. Units are managed by multiple companies and each owner is not required to maintain the same standard within the units with cleaning and maintenance. I have stayed at multiple units at Indigo Reef and unfortunately have had a terrible experience with Keys Caribbean Rentals and Unit 52 Unit 52 is terrible. Overall the unit is in dire need of maintenance. Decking on back deck is loose with many boards that need to be replaced. Outside furniture is dirty and old. Inside fans all out of balance and makes so much noise you can not use. Mold on bottom of drapes and woodwork by patio door. Kitchen pots/pans etc. need to be replaced. Mold/dirt in air vents. Dirty brush and socks left in unit from house keeping. Very disappointed in unit 52 and Keys Caribbean Rental took no responsibility for condition of unit. They knew the owner of this unit did not keep up maintenance. I would not recommend renting unit 52 or using Keys Caribbean.
