Marathon House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 6-8)

Our home is a bright, open house with huge windows that look out over the Gulf of Mexico. With water on two sides, there is plenty of dockage (over 150') for your boat. New furniture in all of the bedrooms, a new hot tub/spa that seats 5/6 people, a Ms. Pac-Man machine, and a Island Oasis frozen drink machine, and a 50 inch TV will keep you entertained in comfort and style.

Located on a quiet lagoon with protected dockage and beautiful wide open views of the Gulf. Sunsets are fabulous, and we often see manatees and tarpon from the dock. A commercial ice machine will make plenty of ice for fishing and cold drinks, while the new Kayak and bicycles will provide even more entertainment.

CONVENIENT LOCATION TO EXPLORE THE KEYS

  • 4 of 5
Comfortable house with a good central location to explore the Keys. We enjoyed watching the sea life from the dock. We saw sea turtles, rays, lion fish, a shark, lobster and crabs. It was like a private aquarium. Next visit we will bring a boat!

TRUE RELAXATION

  • 4 of 5
This place was really great. My whole family went down, that's seven of us, and we all had plenty of room, though someone did have to sleep in the common area. Having a full kitchen was amazing. We ate most of our meals at the houseand used the grill outside for cooking the fresh fish we had caught. We spent many lazy afternoons sunbathing on the patio or taking turns taking the kayak out for a spin. The bikes too were nice to have around.
And there's a manitee that comes to visit! He came almost every day and for those of us that are from the Northern regions that was an extra special treat.
My only complaint would be that there wasn't very much green around the house so sunbathing felt a little odd on the cement patios, but hey, it was hot and there was water everywhere!

GREAT SPOT!!

  • 5 of 5
The owners are great people and very responsive. The ad was spot on....The house has an awesome view of the Gulf and logoon. Fish off the dock as well as manatee, tarpon & turtles. Sit out on the dock every morning & have your coffee. In the evening at the table with a frozen drink! Very clean and functional. The Ice machine was a great addition!! You will not be disapointed with this home. Boaat ramp is right down the street. Very close to 7 mile bridge or Vaca Cut to the north. We will be back again!!

EXCELLENT VACATION HOME!!

  • 5 of 5
We recently returned from an amazing vacation in this home. The home is extremely clean with an open layout but the number one thing is location location location. The view from the home is incredible day or night, the access to open water or nearby marinas or seven mile bridge is enviable and some of the best fishing and snorkeling are right off the dock. The home has a kayak and bicycles as well as a commercial ice machine that saved us tons of $$$ as we loaded up the boat and coolers daily at no charge. We needed to call the owner for questions about the ice machine and we got right through and solved our problem. I would highly recommend this home for anyone or everyone particularly if you plan on bringing or renting a boat. This home would be equally nice for a guys weekend, family vacation, girls trip or multi-family trip. We saw a manatee right at our dock, turtles, every species of bird and caught unbelievable fish - right there without even leaving the home! Incredible sunsets - a bbq and even a hot tub. Highly Highly recommend. Thanks Greg, we really enjoyed our stay.

WOW....AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5
We arrived late Friday night and were very impressed even in the dark. There were 5 adults in our party and there was plenty of room. As daylight broke we got to really see the place and all of 5 of us were excited about our house. Everything was as descibed and even better. The 3 bedrooms were great. Had lots of sheets, blankets, pots, pans, plates, glasses, silverware etc. Lots of fish in the lagoon. We saw lots of Mangrove Snapper, baitfish, and even a few Tarpon. The lagoon is plenty deep enough even during low tide....in some spots it is over 20 feet deep! The view from inside the house is incredible to say the least. If you like fishing or boating this is the place to be. About 5 - 7 minutes boat ride to the Vaca Cut, maybe 10 - 15 minutes to the Seven Mile Bridge. The 400 Lb Commercial ice machine, extra freezer/refrigerator, and storage room was the cat's meow. The ice machine alone saved us valuable time and money every single day. It was nice loading up the boat with 100 lbs of "free" ice every day right at our dock. There were two bicycles and a kayak to use, there was lots of extra bait and chum in the "Bait" freezer left by the last occupant. There was lots of spices and non perishables in the cabinets and even some good vodka left with the Island Oasis machine!. That machine sure makes some good Margaritas! If you rent this home, you will be very happy with your decision as we all were!
