Our family spent a very enjoyable week at this house. With five bedrooms and five baths, there was plenty of room for everyone. Three things that we particularly appreciated: 1) The location, towards the upper end of the estuary, was particularly quiet and private (very little boat traffic) with lovely views, yet the main road through Marathon was just a short 5 minute drive away. Nearby on this road were two dive shops, several boat rental outfits, lots of fun and casual restaurants, a supermarket, a drugstore, and a beautiful resort (Tranquility Bay) if you were in the mood for formal dining (superb desserts by the way...); 2) The house boasts a spacious, covered upstairs terrace that spans the entire side facing the canal, accessible from the Master and three of the four other bedrooms...a lovely and cool place to gather and relax at any time of the day. There is also an outdoor barbecue area on the ground floor, although we never used it; 3) The owners, Jim and Tudor, were very pleasant and efficient to work with, and we felt that the house offered excellent value for money. It's an older house for sure, but it feels very homey and has a very practical layout in addition to the superb location. In short, an excellent time was had by all!
