About Jeffrey M. Welbaum

Our family is comprised of a public servant, retired French & Spanish teacher, Air Force Officer, and Spanish teacher. Our family was raised in Troy, Ohio where Jeff and Peg currently live.

Jeffrey M. Welbaum purchased this condo in 2002

Why Jeffrey M. Welbaum chose Marathon

The views from the balconies are spectacular. The Gulf water is less than 16 yards away. The pool is beautiful. The dock on the Vaca Cut is a great place to fish. The condo is centrally located beetween Key Largo and Key West. The condo is spacious, 1,400 square feet of interior living area plus the two balconies. The condo is a lot better than it looks in pictures.

What makes this condo unique

The two water front balconies are located on the east side of the building. This provides valuable afternoon shade while sitting on the decks. Even during the hot summer afternoons, the balonies are surprisingly comfortable with the shade and sea breeze.

Awesome Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5
This experience was amazing for us. The condo made our experience the best because it was so clean and comfy. It was a nice place to know we could come back to after exploring all that the keys have to offer. We thoroughly enjoyed everything the condo had to offer, including the pool, location, view, and spacious living space. We had a blast and would recommend this condo to anyone looking for a good time in the keys.

What More Could You Want?

  • 5 of 5
When planning our honeymoon for October we searched for a beautiful local with a self sufficient private setting. Jeff and Peg`s place provides that and so much more. The decor is lovely, comfortable and perfectly stocked with guests needs in mind. The expansive gulf views make you want to stay and tour the grounds but the location is right in the heart of wonderful restaurants, beaches, fishing, diving and snorkeling opportunities. It was a week in paradise.

Great Property and Fun in the Sun!

  • 5 of 5
The condo and surrounding grounds were beautiful. We had a great time and Jeff was wonderful to rent from. He was extremely helpful with his recommendations and the entire rental process start to finish.

The condo was spacious, and fully stocked with everything we needed to cook, grill etc. There were 6 of us in the unit and we had plenty of room to spare.

Fishing off of the dock was great. We caught nurse sharks, hammerheads and many other variety of fish. The evening hours yielded the best fishing.

Great time, great property. We will be coming back!
