Marathon House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Beautifully furnished home on the Gulf of Mexico with private sunning beach, private swimming pool, boat ramp, dock and outdoor bathhouse. The house is light and airy with large windows for multiple water views. Located at the end of a quiet residential street, the tropically landscaped property is private and quiet.

The living room area has a large screen TV and a game table adjacent. A large attached second floor porch with ocean view runs the length of the house for outdoor dining and relaxing. The kitchen is large and fully equipped with a granite eating counter. There is a flat screen TV and DVD in the Master bedroom with private bath. There is a large outdoor shower room for use after a day of water activities.

There is 80 feet of boat dockage in protected waters with access to the United State's only living coral reef some of the best sport fishing in the world. House has it's own splash swimming pool and private beach facing the water.

You can kayak, fish or swim or snorkel right off of the dock.

Museums, snorkeling, kayaking, biking, world famous fishing and diving trips are available nearby. One of the most beautiful beaches in the Keys, Sombrero Beach, is a mile and a half away. Or drive down the road to Bahia Honda State park with beaches, fishing and snorkeling. Just bring your shorts, tee shirts and flip flops and the rest is waiting for a great get-a-way vacation.

GREAT PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
I'd forgotten to write this review until I was looking for a house this year. This property and house is really nice. It was hot as it could be there in June. There is a small splash pool which the 5 of us fit in comfortably with plenty of room just to sit and talk in the cool water so we stayed in it a lot. FYI: We brought a canopy and we were happy for some sun protection over the pool. We are from SC and are accustomed to the heat but REALLY needed it! The whole house is located upstairs so you will do some climbing up and down. There is a refrigerator, grill and shower house downstairs. We enjoyed the dock and fished but didn't catch anything we could keep. We grilled most of the time. Porky's Bayside food was great. A hole in the wall no a/c but breeze blowing through with yummy food. Sombrero Beach was awesome just down the street and Bahia Honda State Park was really beautiful too! Also requiring the canopy! As suggestion for anyone doing Key West in the heat. Go later in the day because it's so hot you will be worn down by noon. As we were leaving completely exhausted everyone was just starting to enjoy the music and bands but we had to go, we were dying for a shower. Back to the house we so enjoyed ourselves and it was very private outside. I would definitely return to this house but would have done some of our sightseeing different in hindsight. Love the house great location but off the beaten path!

PERFECT PARADISE VACATION HOME.

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful "home away from home" for my family and parents. The home is warm and cozy and private. My kids LOVED the pool and the benefit of the kayak as well as the gulf to swim and play in. Fishing off the dock and patio was also a blast. The owners were very welcoming to us and even offered to allow our children to come swim in the heated pool that is up the street at their hotel. We loved having coffee on the veranda every morning. We will definately be trying to rent this home for next years spring break.

PERFECT GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you so much Harry and Carolyn for sharing your wonderful Marathon home. We spent two weeks - weather was wonderful, house was terrific (even better than pictures). Glad we got to meet you, Harry, as well! Sunsets were amazing...caught lots of fish from our boat and even off the dock! Pelican's were quite happy when they had a bite as well! Location is great - Publix across the street - great Deli also. Could have eaten every day at The Stuffed Pig for breakfast! Sparky's for Happy Hour or dinner....recommended by a local - great choice. Loved Burdines for the view/atmosphere/french fries...and if you want to buy your own to cook - Keys Fisheries seafood market (Lobster Reuben if you want to eat there!). Also enjoyed Sombrero Beach - lovely and very well-kept. Thanks again for a wonderful time!

GREAT EXPERIENCE!

We enjoyed our stay, the house was awesome, very roomy, clean and right on the ocean, great sunsets. We enjoyed exploring the abandoned resort next to the house. Harry is a very nice person to rent from, and fun to talk with. Great experience, will stay here again.

VERY PRIVATE AND RELAXING

  • 5 of 5
Very nice home for one or two couples. On the end of the street, so it is very private. The interior of the house is very nice, with an excellent kitchen and seperate ice maker. Very nice large screen TV and a great porch with a view. It's location provides easy access to Marathon. Would definitely stay there again.

WONDERFUL VACATION HOME

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent a week here with 2 other couples. We had a wonderful time. The porch was great and relaxing. There are ducks there regularly and one named HOUSE who came for breakfast daily. The house was lovely, clean, well cared and a perfect getaway.
