Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Our vacation was absolutely perfect. The condo was very neat and clean. All photo's of the condo were exact representation of what we got. The neighbor's were very nice, and the location was very quiet and peaceful. We're going back again if we can! The owner of the condo even called me one day to make sure everything was fine and that we were enjoying ourselves.
My wife and I are planning another trip next year and we will surely look at this property again in the future.
Activities we did: 1) Eateries were fantastic, favorite places to eat were Castaway, Annette's. 2) Snorkeling by the condo. 3) Snorkeling from a catamaran. 4) Scuba diving with the folks at Tilden's 5) The biplane ride was awesome! Paul is a heck of a comic and the ride was beautiful! Fly Conch Air! It is worth every dollar!
One week wasn't enough. We hit up a different eatery every day, but Castaway we had to go there twice.
Joe, if we can, we'll try to get something lined up for the end of June 2010 as soon as school lets out for our boys.
This was the best vacation we have ever had!

Little bit of paradise

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a week staying here and had a wonderful time - I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone. The condo is very comfortable and very well equipped (in fact the photos do not do the condo justice). The location is perfect - right on the beach with a small private beach and a lovely pool (which we practically had to ourselves for the week). The Florida Keys are beautiful, and we had a great time exploring the area. Our favourite place was Key West which is definitely worth a visit (or 2!) - it is about 75 mins drive from Marathon. Our favourite eating place in the area was The Island which was only a few mins drive from the condo and served great breakfast. lunch and dinner. Our daughter also went scuba diving with Captain Hooks, from where we also hired a boat. All in all a great holiday and hopefully not the last time we will visit Marathon. Thanks Joe for letting us stay in your holiday home.

Perfect Community for 55+

  • 3 of 5
Pros: The actual condo was great! Just as you would have wanted. It's quiet, the pool was very warm (we were there in December), and there was an elevator. My parents (both age 63) loved the place. I would definitely suggest it for seniors or anyone else wanting to get away from it all.

Cons: As I mentioned, we went in December. The water was cold (wet suit required- and we're from California). Daytime Air temps ranged from 55 - 70 degrees. The beach was groomed by tractor every morning starting @ 7:30 (very loud), and the sea weed was then dumped back into the water (why?). The water here was not very clear - very thick black seaweed just a few feet from shore. In order to to do anything that the teenage/young adult crowd would consider lively, you must travel 1 1/2 hours one way to Key West on a two-lane road. The water in Key West is just as cold, though, but is a lot clearer. If you are planning a vacation in winter time to get to warm, crystal clear water with plenty of water activities, you will pay almost the same and get much more for your money to go on to Cancun, Cozumel, etc.

Overall, we found the overall Key scene to be a little disappointing for what we were expecting. As I mentioned, though, if you are looking for quiet time and don't plan on a lot of activities or ocean swimming, the condo we stayed was great.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to submit a review! We get a lot of great comments on our condo from our guests who enjoy the tropical decor, relaxing atmosphere, ocean view and breezes.

It's a great place for couples and families who want a south Florida experience any time of the year - even when there is an unusual cold spell like the one that enveloped the country this December.

Marathon is a quaint tropical city located conveniently located in the middle of the Florida Keys. It's known for its natural environment and activities like sailing, fishing, diving, snorkeling and biking, which can be enjoyed by people of all ages. It boasts 30+ restaurants within a few miles and is only 50 miles from Key West.

Coco Plum Beach Villa

  • 5 of 5
The condo was better than we imagined, the photo's do not give a true impression of the size of the place. The local area was fantastic, a very short drive to "7 Mile Bridge" and the walk to Pidgeon Island on the rail bribge from which we were able to see Sharks, rays, various other fish and loggerhead turtles in their natural environment. All of this combined with fabulous weather.
In addition the local agent, Barbara McKee was extremely helpful.

Coco Plum Beachfront Apartment

  • 5 of 5
Just wanted to thank you for contributing to our fantastic holiday. The apartment was extremely comfortable, well equipped with a superb location. We enjoyed the air displays put on by the local band of pelicans and ospreys as well as enjoying all the wonderful activities that the Keys have to offer.

We're now back in sub zero temperatures with snow, sleet and rain. Still we try to hold on to the feelings of warmth and the sights and sounds of the ocean.

We'll certainly be back!

Relaxing and Pleasant

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at Coco Plum. We stayed 7/31 - 8/7/10 and felt the condo was very nice and comfortable. Our daughter is 1 and we enjoyed the beach, pool, and ocean with her. The beach was groomed daily to keep it clean. The water was so warm in both the ocean and pool. We saw lots of little fish, crabs, and a sting ray as we walked in the water. We drove to Key West twice and to Islamorada once to Theatre of the Sea. Must visit the turtle hospital on Marathon. That was a great experience. Only complaint we would have is that there is not a grill as in the description. Also no laundry soap as mentioned. We also had to buy glass cleaner, dish soap, dishwasher soap, and additional toilet paper as it was not provided and we had assumed since we had to maintain cleanliness these items would be provided. However, that was minor and just would have been nice knowing ahead of time. We ate at the Sunset Raw Bar on Knight's Key, Island Fish Co. right by the condo (and purchased fresh seafood to cook ourselves there), and the Square Grouper on Cudjoe Key towards Key West. We felt the location of the condo was ideal to do day trips to other keys. Coco Plum Beach was very quiet and private. Lots of great shells and the sand was just right. We enjoyed our stay immensely and enjoyed our time as a family without the hustle and bustle. We would return and recommend the beach and condo to others.

Owner's Response: Dear Brandon, Bethany & Lily,

We are happy that you enjoyed your stay at our Coco Plum Beach Villas condo. It sounds as though you discovered many of the treasures to be found in and around Marathon.

We apologize for any misunderstandings regarding the cleaning products. We have a cleaning service that in under contract to provide ample toilet paper – we will follow up with them. When my wife and I stay at our condo we try to leave behind enough cleaning product to last many months. For some reason we must have ran out.

I hope you will come and stay with us again.

Joe & Patricia

The Coco Plum Beach Villas are located in Marathon, FL at Mile Marker 54.5. Just 60 minutes from Key West and 60 minutes from Key Largo, we are at the midpoint of the Florida Keys island chain. Locals call home 'The heart of the Keys' for geographic reasons, but also to reflect the old-Keys lifestyle they enjoy among the spectacular fishing, diving, snorkeling and sailing.

Sombrero Reef, a federally protected section of North America's only living coral barrier reef, lies just a few miles offshore. Beyond it are the deep blue waters of the Florida Straits, which teem with billfish and tuna in the winter and dolphin fish in the summer.

Many of the island's marine activities are situated on Boot Key Harbor, a peaceful tropical cove in the center of the island. The harbor is famous for its sunset views and is home to the City Marina.

Food aficionados can enjoy fresh local fish prepared simply or gourmet style, and many of these restaurants are located right on the water.
