Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi Kate:



Capitol "P" for PERFECT!! $$MBaby is off the scale!



What our "group" was looking for was exactly what $$MBaby delivered - and sooo much more.



The home is beautiful, so well kept and, hopefully, appreciated by those who enjoy 'her' and the time spent there. The weather was unbelievable - 75 and not a cloud in the sky. We walked to Pigeon Key, flew over $$MBaby in the bi-plane, two went fishing (only 3 ocean perch), spent hours at the Dolphin Research Center, etc. Things to do are endless.



Since our friends from South Carolina brought sufficient food (in freezer, in auto) to feed an army, we don't have much feedback on restaurants. What is a worth a mention is Fish Tales. My husband and I had lunch there our first day (we were a bit early to the 3 pm entry to your home) and had such a tasty treat with the "bisque", we ate a LOT of it - crab or lobster. The Campbells and Ms. Crocker took back to South Carolina 10 quarts combined of both!! The guys there were most accommodating. Another plus was Bilbo (just across 114th St. from the CD sign. Great hamburgers and I had chicken livers (at least 3 pounds on a plate!!). Place was packed. Tried Frank's Grill-but it too was packed and we didn't make reservations. Alas.



The home was immaculate when we arrived. And, we left it that way. (I'm a neatness freak.) Your kitchen is the most well stocked ever - not a thing missing that was needed. We adored using the fish plates and the lobster plates!! There are no everyday wine glasses, so we visited K-Mart to buy some Just couldn't bring ourselves to use any of the beautiful glassware in the cabinet above the 'bar'.



I'm a gardener and watched some of the plants gasping for water, so we did the watering thing, especially to the purple flowering pots on the west side of the house. The pots immediately came to life once they were watered.



Wildlife: Mamma manatee and baby came to visit, pair of dove stayed around morning and night to clean up our cracker crumbs, and of course, Iggy and his/her friend were not too far away ever.



Bottom line: our week at $$MBaby was 10+! We would go back in a minute.

However or whatever you do is working perfectly.



Thank you for having us. We loved every moment of $$MBaby

We are a working couple who each own our of business. We furnished and outfitted the house to the quality we would expect to find if we were renting.

I am an artist so the house is hand painted inside by myself. Hopefully showing you how much the house is loved.

Spending time in Marathon is magical and we never want to leave every time we visit. We work hard and hopefully one day will be spending much more time in our beautiful home.

Kate purchased this house in 1993

Just to say we have had an amazing stay at your. Beautiful home - the view onto the sea was like no other :)
We did the aquarium encounter which I would recommend, we also we'd lucky enough to watch the turtle hospital release a turtle back into the sea
We also took a chill day out and went to the art studio and painted some pottery - such lovely people and a lovely service would definately recommend them.
Finally the kids swam with the dolphins - via the research centre so 3 very happy children!!!


Thank you for sharing your home hopefully we'll be back again


Kindest of regards

Great vacation, Great house

  • 5 of 5
We just got home from a week’s stay in Marathon. Wow! Our first time vacationing in this town and we had just the best time. So much to do, we were very surprised. We rented a boat and the Million Dollar baby is located in the best spot on the Atlantic for this. In the evenings we fished right off the dock and caught just about the same as we did going out on the boat.
The views were wonderful and the house fantastic. Immaculately clean and all the furniture new and comfortable. We were 4 adults and we already have plans to return next year. The owners couldn’t have been nicer to deal with and made booking a breeze and provided exactly what they advertised. A nice surprise as we have rented a home once before and this wasn’t the case. With the MDB you can trust that what you see is what you are going to get. Kate sent us a list of restaurants and activities and she was spot on in her recommendations.
Kate and Mike, we know you book up fast so we are rushing to all get our dates in order so we don’t miss out.
Thanks for letting us rent your home and providing some great memories for us.
Jill and Walter

Exceeded Expectation- can't say enough!

Exceeded Expectation- can't say enough!
  • 5 of 5
To qualify my review- Im picky, to a fault, & rarely do experiences meet expectation let alone exceed them. The home, the area, the homeowners were simply amazing. I'll start with the home- Ive learned that with VRBO & like companies have some homeowners that will overstate their property, location & oversell with misleading text & pictures. I found this out resulting from a less than ideal experience with a vacation home we rented. As a result, I've made it a practice to contact the homeowner before booking. The communication was great email and phone calls. I asked about the pool, the landing/dock area and proximity to the beach. We have 3 kids ages 5,7,9 so the safety, pool size and beach proximity were essential. Over the course of the calls we started a dialog that made me feel like I was family! Their home did not at all feel like a vacation rental. Perfectly equipped kitchen, washer dryer, furniture, electronics (tv, sate, wifi, dvd), beds, bedding etc. The views are amazing, we saw dolphin daily & a manatee + had coffee each am starring out into the atlantic over crazy blue/green waters. Pool is perfectly sized as is the patio area. There is an amazing tree that must have a nickname b/c it's such an iconic, beautiful part of the outdoor area. As far as the beaches & location, if you know the keys then you know marathon is ideal. Went to Key west for the day (hour drive) & we went to Bahia Honda (state park/beaches) for the day- (10-15 minutes). Key west with a family is fun to visit but not to stay. The beaches & some of the scene can be less than desirable for kids or teens in key west. Bahia Honda was outstanding & after traveling much of the caribbean I can speak with a little bit of experience. Stay away from the designated beach area & get lost on the less traveled beaches, you won't regret it. Didn't make it to Sombrero beach which is a 5min drive & the local favorite. Local eateries were great & reasonably priced. We ate at the stuffed pig (don't be fooled by the name) which was freaking awesome, the sunset grill- decent food, great location & atmosphere. hogfish grill- really not worth the drive but great food & service. Conch Republic in Key West- overall was our fav for dinner & The Stuffed Pig was our fav for breakfast/lunch. The food quality, variety, prep, portions & service were all impeccable! Can't say enough about this home, the area & the homeowner. We loved the home, Marathon & are already making plans to return!

Just the best

  • 5 of 5
We had just the best week ever. The house is everything and more and the weather was perfect. We never left the back patio area it was so beautiful. Marathon has a lot going on and we found ourselves busy the whole time. We loved the house, loved the owners and loved the area. Only thing we didn't like was coming home.

Did not want to leave!

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay in the Million Dollar Baby so much that we are already planning our next trip! The house perfectly suited our group of 3 couples, with 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths. The photos and description of the home were very accurate. The view the minute you walk in the front door is breath taking. The homes was immaculate upon our arrival. Everyone slept like babies in the comfortable beds, and the guys loved the recliners to watch their sporting events on the big screen TV. The pool and patio is where we spent the most of our time when we were at the house. There is so much to see and do in Marathon, but we still managed to get plenty of time in the pool. We did take a dip in the ocean one afternoon and were happy to see the ladder to get us back up on the dock. One morning we saw 3 dolphins chasing fish not 20 yards off the dock and several times we saw big Tarpon swimming by. The resident Iguana was fun to watch as well. We did not rent a boat, but the dock is set up perfect and has a fish cleaning station. All in all we give this vacation home a 10+ and are counting the days until we can visit again.

We are just over the Vaca Cut.........

The 7 mile bridge is less than 1 mile away

Key West is less than an hour away and it is a blast going down for a day but more than one day in Key West (the locals call it Key Weird) is more than enough.....so we are close enough for fun but you have the luxury of the sanctuary and peace of the keys at our home.....

We are sitting right on the Atlantic......water 30 feet from the back door.........and in 2 minutes you can also be in the Gulf of Mexico.......we are in the best location you could ever be in while in Marathon.........

We are also extremely close to little Palm Island......a must visit while you are down here.

There is a skate park and live theatre down here and you will love it.
