Guestbook comments from the owner
We certainly found the right one when the connection was made for this wonderful condo in Marathon. The unit was immaculate upon arrival and is a very comfortable place to spend time. Furnishings are more like a personal residence as opposed to the usual rental property atmosphere. The owner has taken every possible initiative to provide everything that you need while away from home. The decorations and furnishings are well kept and provides a very user friendly atmosphere. The location allows colorful sunrises and gorgeous sunsets. A handy boat dock where you may observe the fish or go fishing is nearby. There are handy shops and restaurants located nearby and the location is centrally located in the Keys allowing explorations in both directions. The property has a convenient pool that is also well maintained. The place is really so nice that photos do not fully depict the quality that you will find. If you have been exploring other places...your search can end now. Once your dates and times are decided the process for finalizing the lease is seamless. 5 Stars.

WELL-APPOINTED VACATION HOME WITH MARVELOUS GULF INLET VIEWS.

  • 5 of 5
We truly appreciated the personal attention received from Janet and Julia prior due and during our stay at her home. Pleasantly surprised at how well-appointed the condo was. We trailered our small boat and were able to launch it nearby without incident. We would advise those with small boats to bring additional lines to be able to work within the docking slips which are fixed to handle larger boats.
We enjoyed watching the boat traffic through the inlet and the glorious sunsets. At the time of the year the sun actually sets below the trees rather than the gulf which gave a completely different perspective focusing on the brilliant colors of the skyline.
Also at this time of the year there was a lot of sea grass on the Atlantic side of the Keys which gave the beaches on that side an uncomfortable odor and were unappealing in which to swim. The gulf side on the other hand was very clear.
We look forward to our return stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for writing a beautiful review. Your information about the lines for a smaller boat at the boat slip will be useful to future boaters staying at our condo. We, too, enjoy the glorious sunsets from the balconies. No two sunsets are alike and several of our guests have had the opportunity of taking spectacular photo shots. Appreciate your comment about our housekeeper, Julia. She does a wonderful job of maintaining the condo and getting the rooms in pristine condition for our guests. Thank you again for your comments. We look forward to your returning to our condo.

WONDERFUL PLACE TO STAY: FROM BEGINNING TO END.

  • 5 of 5
We arrived at Marathon Key a night ahead of schedule and had a little trouble finding a place for night. Called Janet for assistance and she quickly had us booked at a nice, clean motel in Marathon. The next day we arrived at the condo a little early. The cleaning lady was kind enough to help us unload all of our luggage as she waited for the sheets and towels to dry. Then she gave us the name of her favorite Cuban restaurant in Key West. The condo was wonderful, with beautiful sunsets to view each afternoon. Gulfpointe was a quiet area wth great locals who were friendly and helpful. We had a great week in the Keys and couldn't have had a better place to stay,

AWESOME PLACE ~

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I celebrated our 30th Wedding anniversary there; The owner left us a bottle of wine and called shortly after our arrival to see if everything was in order and to congratulate us ! The pictures presented were exactly as the property represents itself; It is a beautiful place to stay; This was our first time at the keys and found Marathon to be quite enjoyable; Regarding fishing from the dock; Its fantastic ! If you want Snapper, skip the reef fishing boats and fish the dock. Go at 8:30 in the evenings; buy frozen pilchards from Capt'n Hooks, use as cut bait and fish from the bottom; You will catch them in no time.

Owner's Response: Thank you for a fantastic review of your week at our condo in Gulfpointe. So happy to hear that you had a wonderful time. Appreciate the information about fishing off the dock, which is just a few steps away. One doesn't have to go far to catch dinner. The dock is also a great spot to watch marine life. Guests have spotted snapper, porpoises, sting rays, and a variety of other fish while standing on the dock. Thanks again for vacationing with us.

The Condowas very clean well stocked with anything vacationers could possibly need. The Pool facility was very nice and within walking steps. Fishing dock provided excellent fun caught enough snapper for two dinners for four adults. The View overlooking deck was just beautiful, sunsets and sunrises were explosive in color. A very quiet and friendly atmosphere that isn out of the way spot. Anyone looking to relax and leave their worries at home this place is for you! We will definitely revisit this wonderful place in the future. The owner by the way is a sweetheart very concerned about making your stay very memorable.

Owner's Response: Thank you for a wonderful review of your stay at Gulfpointe. Delighted to hear that you enjoyed your week and especially enjoyed the beautiful sunsets and sunrises. Sitting on either of the balconies facing the Gulf is so relaxing and a great way to unwind and watch the boats go by. Thank you again for being our guests, and we will look forward to your return some time in the future.

COMFORTABLE, RELAXING, GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved our stay in Janet’s beautiful condo. We had never visited the Keys before and were looking for something centrally located that would allow easy access to the parks, attractions, and other communities between Key Largo and Key West. This condo in Marathon was the perfect choice, not only because of its great location, but because it was one of the most lovely and comfortable places we’ve ever stayed. It really feels like the Keys here.

Situated in a quiet, waterfront location, the condo offers beautiful views through the floor-to-ceiling windows on each level. The sunsets were spectacular. The living room, dining room, half-bath, and well-equipped kitchen are on the first level, with the bedrooms and two full baths on the second level. You’ll also have access to beach chairs, fishing gear, a cooler, and beach towels. The grounds around the building are well maintained and include tropical plants and trees. There is covered parking for 2 vehicles on the ground level under the unit.

Numerous stores and restaurants are nearby. We enjoyed eating at the Island Fish Company, which is right on the water and within walking distance. Two major grocery stores are just 5-10 minutes away, so it’s easy to pick up anything you might need for preparing snacks or meals. Janet maintains a nice assortment of brochures, menus, and tourist information if you need a few suggestions for dinner or things to do.

In addition to the local Marathon area, we visited Key Largo, Key West, Islamorada, and several parks and attractions. Bahia Honda State Park is a must-see if you’re into beaches, fishing, hiking, or outdoor activities. It’s beautiful.

If you’ve never rented a condo from a private individual before, there’s no need to worry. Janet made the entire process an easy and pleasant one. She also called us on the evening we arrived to make sure everything was in order and to answer any questions.

Our week here was one of the most relaxing and enjoyable vacations we’ve had. We highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: What a fantastic review of your stay at our condo. Thank you so much. Happy to hear you had such a "relaxing" and enjoyable week. The Keys are a great place to unwind and your description of the condo was just awesome, along with the information on close-by shopping and your visit to the Bahia Honda State Park and other attractions. Thank you again for being our guests at Gulfpointe.

Car: recommended

This is a beautiful and very unique vacation property, offering spectacular water views, dockage for your boat, swimming, and the privacy of a small complex of 20 condominiums (4 units per building). Being centrally located in the Keys, Marathon offers the convenience of being close to a vast array of restaurants, sightseeing adventures, Sombrero Beach, diving, snorkeling, boating and some of the best fishing in the Keys. Local attractions such as the Dolphin Research Center, The Turtle Hospital, Crane Point and the historic Pigeon Key are close-by.. Our condo is just north of the famous 7-Mile Bridge and Key West is a scenic 1-hour drive away through some of the most beautiful tropical islands.
