ABSOLUTELY BREATHTAKING

  • 5 of 5
Everything about this property, location, and home owner is phenomenal. I couldn't think of a negative thing, even if I tried. Lets break it all down...

The Property/Home
You can tell this home was built with a lot of attention to detail. It sits on two lots overlooking your own private dock with panoramic ocean views. The lot itself has a hammock, pool, Jacuzzi, personal car port, and your own gated entrance. Not only did we feel secure in our own private area, but loved the spacious interior and exterior.

Location
On vacation, it truly is all about location, location, location. What a better way to relax than under a coconut tree on your own little slice of paradise. This home is nestled in the middle of Marathon, FL-Only a short drive down to Key West to grab a chocolate covered Key Lime Pie on a stick, or head up North to the John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park for some snorkeling. (Or maybe Miami to grasp a scene of the nightlife.) We were overwhelmed of opportunities for adventure in every which direction, or the adventure awaiting outside our front door.

The Homeowner
I don't think I've met such a genuinely nice individual. Homeowner Carolyn truly made the experience for our family. You could practically see her smile over the phone, as she was just as excited as we were for this vacation. It was like having our own personal concierge the entire trip, making sure everything was up to expectation.

Overall
My family came to this house and we were amazed by the incredible oceanfront view! We were able to sit outside and just relax. Other than the view of the ocean, we were pleased to find many great hangout places nearby, in addition to everything this home has to offer. This house had great furnishings and we will surely come back again.

Thank you Carolyn for such an amazing trip. We can't wait to be back!

AWESOME FAMILY GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We flew the kids in from all over for a family vacation. EVERYTHING about this trip was amazing. The house was beautiful with plenty of room for all 6 of us. We stayed for a week and only left the house three times! The view was mesmerizing, the pool refreshing and the sauna was heaven! Don't doubt your decision for a minute, your going to LOVE it here!

PERFECT VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
The Sunrise Getaway House was perfect for our family vacation. We all enjoyed our stay and are looking forward to next year. Our 13 year old son could not get enough of the dock and our 7 year old daughter loved the pool. Everything in the house was great, including the great beds and comfy couches! Awesome views and perfect seclusion!!

HIDDEN PARADISE IN THE KEYS

  • 5 of 5
We just returned to the frigid north after a wonderful stay in Marathon. This home was one of the greatest vacation spots we've ever encountered. The amenities, were very well thought out throughout the property. The house was very well maintained, very clean, and stocked with everything one could posssibly need for a vacation including a frozen margaritta machine in the kitchen. From the moment we expressed interest in booking, Carolyn (owner) was very friendly and provided great customer service to us before we left and even after we arrived. I highly recommend this property as a vacation destination, you wont be dissapointed.
We rarely left the property, because it had everything from the view, pool, hot tub, BBQ grill, and boat dock. Why leave. We will definately be back.........

IMMACULATE HOME WITH BREATHTAKING VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
We had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful home from Nov 5th to Nov 12th for a week. We wish it was longer then just one week we didn't want to leave. This house has tremendous and breath taking views and it was so refreshing to wake up every morning and look out the window and see nothing but endless ocean and beautiful sunsets. The beds were very comfortable and the house overall well maintained and equipped. The pool was perfect especially the spa area as it is heated and a great size. We spent time on the deck looking at the fish off of the dock seeing nurse sharks, needle nose fish, macerole, and other little fish not to mention watching the bird dive into the water. A short 1 hr drive to key west which we spent 2 of our days at. Tildens Scuba center to do snuba, we rented ocean kayaks from wheels 2 go and they delivered them to the house that was fun! WE crabbed off of the dock and caught only one crab but it was fun. Great landscaping at the house which makes for many nice pictures. Sombrera beach is less than 10 minutes and is a very nice beach..white sandy beach, volleyballs nets, and beautiful blue ocean and corral. Bohai State Park is worth a visit but not as nice as Sombrera for swimming. This house was perfect for us and our family. We had people of all ages - 14 year old, 50 somethings, late twenties and two eighteen year olds. The next time our travels bring our family back to the keys our first call will be to stay at this immaculate home in Marathon. (PS: Marathon is a very nice town..small and low keys perfect for relaxation but only a short drive to other areas) A huge thanks to Carolyn & Connie as they both were always pleasant, prompt, and efficient on everything.

You will not be disappointed if you stay at this house on your vacation!!!

Map

Car: necessary

The temperate Florida Keys provide an atmosphere all their own, with idyllic tropical temperatures, clear, shallow waters and white sandy beaches. Step onto its shores and wrap yourself in its serenity. Steeped in tradition and history, The Keys have provided a rejuvenating retreat for the likes of Ernest Hemingway, who penned his infamous novel A Farewell to Arms while living on the islands, and Tennessee Williams, who purchased a home on its shores.

Marathon, coined the Heart of the Florida Keys, is located at the center of the island chain and connected to the southern islands by the famous Seven Mile Bridge, the longest fragmented bridge in the world built in 1985 adjacent to its original counterpart. The bridge, offering a scenic view of the Atlantic ocean’s sparkling waters, has been featured in several movies including True Lies and 2 Fast 2 Furious. Anglers are drawn to its “longest fishing pier in the world”, where they can catch dolphin fish, yellow tail and barracuda.

Notes:
With incredibly mild seasons, the Keys rise and fall just 12 to 20 degrees year-round. Residents and visitors enjoy average 70 degrees in January and 80 to 90-degree summer months. Warm tropical showers and thunderstorms roll through the shores between May and October, creating an extraordinarily moody, romantic and dramatic ambiance. The Key’s cobalt-colored waters and coral reefs are a haven for scuba diving, snorkeling, sailing, kayaking and boating. Sport fishermen flock to its waters, with 10 percent of the world’s salt fish records set just off the shores. Visit the Adelaide Baker historic shipwreck, Telta Shoals and the famous Thunderbolt wreck dive site. Swim with dolphins or indulge in local Eco Tours. The opportunities are limitless. Arts abound at the nearby Tennessee Williams Theater, while The Key West Literary Seminar draws hundreds of new and well-known creative writers each January.
