About Cathy Natelson

Hello, my name is Cathy and I'm the proud owner/operator of Catherine's Tropical Paradise. I love to travel, and while in the Keys, I'm usually busy taking my three boys fishing and snorkeling.

Cathy Natelson purchased this house in 2003

Why Cathy Natelson chose Marathon

I grew up in the Northeast USA, so having a vacation rental in the Florida Keys is a dream come true. Marathon supports week to week rentals and since most of our guests are families, this works out great. We love Marathon because of the small town friendly neighborhood culture, the great fishing and snorkeling, and relaxing at Sombrero Beach.

Great Stay in October 2007

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house and the boat docking area. We stayed 7 days and had a blast. The house was clean and well supplied. It was comfortable and the hot tub was fabulous. We enjoyed being able to get on the boat and go. And then come in at night, clean the boat, fish, eat and get ready for more!!

I would recommend this house to anyone who wants a great place to stay, with boat and water on hand.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The house was very clean and well supplied.

If you are boating the house is located in a great spot.. not far from the cut and right near a channel to the ocean. There are lots of great restaurants in the area but we seldom ate out as we caught lots of fish and there is a nice grill.

Thanks Cathy!

Just like home ;)

  • 5 of 5

The home was very clean and spacious. Quiet neighborhood with friendly neighbors. My husband, myself, 3 daughters, dog and my in-laws had plenty of room to spread out inside and out. We enjoyed the park near by, Pizza Hut and the outside grill. We had an awesome stay! Thanks again Cathy for the use of your home - we'll be back!

Car: recommended

Our oceanside canal house is blessed with calm waters due to inshore and off-shore reefs. You can enjoy everything from fishing, diving, snorkeling or just relaxing in our dockside hot tub.. You can fish from our dock or bring a boat and enjoy some of the greatest fishing in the Keys. Also within a couple of miles you will find a kid friendly beach and two golf courses. There is much to do locally such as visiting the Marathon Dolphin Research Center or take a side trip to Bahia Honda State Park. Key West is only 45 miles to the south.

The house is well equipped for kids, ages 2-15+, with a hot tub, DVD surround sound system, cable TV, a large front yard, and a swimming canal.

If you love the keys you'll be right at home.

To request additional information, you may contact the owner directly by phone or by e-mail.
