SEAGLASS-20 FEET FROM THE GULF--SUMMER AND FALL SPECIALS.

Marathon Condo Rental Photos and Description

2BR Oceanfront Vacation Rental Marathon , Florida USA

Seaglass-Paradise on the Gulf is located in the heart of the the beautiful Florida Keys. The Keys are a series of 40 islands connected by 40 bridges , off the southern most tip of Florida. They extend 120 miles into the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico. The area is famous for its Caribbean weather and world-class fishing and diving.

This luxurious two-bedroom/2.5-bath townhome is located 20 feet from the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. Off the living room and master bedroom there are walk-out wrap-around terraces from which you'll have spectacular views of sealife, ocean birds, and a parade of fishing boats going to and from the big water. The full view of the sunrise and the sky color at sunset -- and the sound of the waves as you close your eyes at night, will stay with you long after your vacation ends.

This unit is beautifully appointed and immaculately maintained. Below the unit is a covered parking area for your car and boat trailer.

And there's boat dockage just 100 feet from the front door. The swimming pool is 30 feet from your balcony.

There's a king-size bed in the master bedroom, two queen-size beds in the second bedroom, and a sofa sleeper in the living room.

WHAT A VIEW!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo! It was like a little slice of heaven after the cold winter of Michigan. We were looking for a spot to just sit back and relax and we found it in your spacious and welcoming condo on the Gulf. The list of sights to see and restaurants to try was very much appreciated. We visited Key West and took a wonderful walk around Crane Pointe and then just spent lazy days at Sombrero beach and the beautiful pool. We were so excited to see a manatee, small shark, and a couple of stingrays not to mention several iguanas just looking out from the balcony! Thank you again for sharing your beautiful home. We are looking forward to coming back soon.

Owner's Response: Hi Eileen

Thanks so much for the kind words. That means a lot to me. Because I have such a strong feeling for the beautiful Keys, it really is gratifying to see our guests enjoy all of the same features of the Keys that we love so much. Each time you visit you will discover something new and enjoyable to do or see. I truly hope we see you again next year. You were here at a time that is in great demand so if you want that same next year, it is still open but let me know as soon as you can and I will pencil you in. All the best

EXCELLENT!

  • 5 of 5
The other reviews are true! Great location, clean, quiet, everything that it is promised to be. The water in the gulf is so clear we saw a shark and manta ray right from the deck! The pool is lovely and we had it to ourselves most of the time. The access to Inch beach is a definite perk as it has no seagrass accumulation, something all the public beaches have quite a lot of. We really enjoyed our stay, thanks Bob!

OOPS WE DID IT AGAIN AND LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second year at Seaglass-20 and we love it as much the second time, as the first.

The condo is located on Marathon, which is the heart of the Florida Keys. When we arrived, the condo was clean and in great condition with nice furniture. On the first floor is a living room, dining room, guest 1/2 bathroom, and kitchen with a new washer and dryer. On the second floor, is a king size master suite with full bathroom. Also on the second floor, is a second bedroom with two queen size beds and just outside the 2nd bedroom door, there is another full bathroom. We had four people in our travel group, so both bedrooms were used, as was the washer and dryer.

I have visited the Florida Keys for the past 17 years, the condo was a perfect fit for us. Unlike another reviewer, we did NOT hear noise from US 1, not even when there was a southeast wind. Also, my deposit was returned quickly!

I highly recommend this condo, if you are looking to relax and get away from it all, or if you are looking to explore the Florida Keys.

Owner's Response: Greetings Bill

I truly appreciate your kind words and your thorough discription of the condo. It is gratifying to know that our guests see and experience all of the terrific features of the Florida Keys and especially the Marathon area. You have treated our home like your own and for that I can't thank you enough.
Bill, I think you've contracted the Keys Disease which means you'll be coming back for sure. Call when your ready. All the best

LOVE THE LOCATION AND QUIET!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I needed a week away from our high stress jobs in NY. Staying at Seaglass fit the bill...we slept like babies waking up only by the soft sun shinning in off Florida Bay. The furnishings, pool, and Inch Beach was lovely and we really appreciated the list of recommended restaurants nearby! Every night out we had wonderful dinners of fresh fish cooked to perfection. Needless to say, WE WILL BE BACK!

STREET NOISE

  • 2 of 5
Street noise from Route 1.

Sea Glass, as long as we were inside or at the pool or out on our boat, was fine. The views are exactly as depicted and the interior is clean, although we did wash the animal print blankets before using them on the very old leather furniture. The on-site staff was great. We had 2 small issues which were addressed and resolved quickly and professionally.

There are 2 major drawbacks to Sea Glass, the biggest is the street noise from Route 1. While some road noises (ambulances and fire trucks) are expected and are infrequent, the constant hum of a four-lane thruway was quite bothersome. Sea Glass is only 20 feet from the Gulf, but it's also less than 400 feet from the busiest road in the Keys, with only a bit of foliage as a buffer. My hearing is not ultra-sensitive. I emailed the owner after I got our security deposit back (which was over a week late and sent only after we inquired after it) about the noise and not being able to hear the water, even if it was, as I wrote him, "the gentle noise of the bay". The description of the property reads in part, "...and the sound of the waves as you close your eyes at night...." Don't expect the sound of waves. The owner advised me to go to Hawaii or Australia if I wanted to hear waves.

The second drawback is dockage. The rules are very clear about first-come, first-served with owners taking priority, but coming back to the slip we used for almost 2 weeks, with our tie lines still in place, to find another boat in that slip was upsetting, but, apparently, completely within the rules of the complex, if it was, in fact, an owner's boat, but no way to know. There were 3 other open slips that were not in use (no tie lines), yet ours was the one taken. Again, I have no way of knowing if it was an owner or another renter, but better to dock somewhere else if you want guaranteed tie up.

We have been visiting the Keys for many, many years and know that there are many choices in vacation rentals. Lesson learned: review a map app and walk off distances from thoroughfares to home site at a location near to your home to gauge noise if you'd rather hear water (any water) than traffic. And then, trust your gut.

Owner's Response: I find it very difficult to respond to this because the complaints are about things that have never been an issue in the past with any of our guests. I have been in that unit for 10 years and have never been disturbed by highway noise in fact you will see many of our past guests referring to the quiet and peaceful environment at Seaglass.
The waves on the shorline are dependant on wind velocity. I have heard the waves at night many times and when it happens it is delightful. I'm sorry that this guest did not hear the waves but I cannot control the wind or the waves. Obviously this guest had a bad experience at the pier. I wish she had talked to the boat owner who took her spot because I would address that with any owner who would occupy a spot that is being used by one of my guests. I suspect that that was a thoughless guest who did not know the rules. I'm really sorry that this individual had a bad experience at Seaglass but any reasonable person can look at the comments of our other guests and conclude that this was certainly the exception and not the rule.

WATERFRONT BEAUTY.

  • 5 of 5
Thank you, Bob and Family for a wonderful, warm and sunny vacation in your personal home in Marathon, FL. Everything was there to make it one of the best I've ever had, including some things I didn't even know I needed, like beach towels (loved Inch Beach), washer/dryer (thank you so much for your thoughtful surprise gift!), names and locations of great restaurants and sight-seeing venues, grocery stores, where we could rent a boat to fish if we didn't want to fish off the dock, so many helpful things were there for us. And the beauty of your personal artwork was only surpassed by the waterfront view which really is astoundingly beautiful. Also had a fun day in Key West, only about an hour away. Just wonderful.

Owner's Response: Hi Karen

thanks so much for the kind words and you obviously saw and experienced most of the things that make the Keys so special. When our guests react to the Keys, and to our home as you have, that makes it all worth while. Thanks again and please come back. All the best
