About Beverly Bennett

Frank & I have enjoyed our piece of paradise over the years, first while raising our 3 boys, and now with their families --which include 8 grandchildren. While we have lived in a wooded neighborhood in Virginia all these years, our hearts are at Media Luna with unlimited water views.

Why Beverly Bennett chose Marathon

We fell in love with our half-moon shaped home while house shopping on a cloudy day while our sons golfed at the par 3 nearby golf course. Being in a quiet neighborhood with proximity to grocery stores and shopping sealed our decision. The sandy beach we could bike or drive to also did not hurt.

What makes this house unique

Nothing beats the view when walking thru the front door, unlimited horizon views thru 24 feet of 8 foot high sliding glass doors. The 925 s.f. screened porch with a lobster trap bar that had a wood top from a salvaged ship sold us on Media Luna. We also loved the circular driveway which provided covered parking to keep our car shaded from the fabulous Keys sun.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fantastic time -- the weather was great and we got to do most of the things we wanted. One of us had an underwater camera with a video option so we all got to "snorkel" around the boat basin and Rachel Key. We always knew there were lots of lobsters on the outside wall of the boat basin but we were surprised to learn there are even more along the wall inside the boat basin. We saw a pod of 8 manatees (adults and young) swim right by the boat basin one afternoon and some of us got to see them again when they swam by in the opposite direction at sunset. That was one of the highlights of our trip.



Everything at the house was fine, housekeeping was good.



Thank you for making your house available to us. I'm sure we'll be back in a few years -- if you haven't realized our dream of moving in permanently.

The house and the views were exceptional. we were half way between Key Largo and Key West. Easy commute to either. We did rent a boat so we had water access to both the Gulf and the Atlantic. We had everything we needed at the house except groceries. Bev provided answers to every question I had before it was asked.

Two years in a row!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second year staying at Media Luna. We love the location. Short drives to some really great restaurants. Short drive to Seven Mile Bridge & Bahia Honda State Park which was nice. But also just hanging around the house, enjoying "the pool" and snorkeling around the sea wall was delightful. We saw a great variety of fish while snorkeling. Our favorite parts of the house are the screened in porch area, sea wall and bench for watching beautiful sunsets.
The owners are very easy to communicate with & make sure their home is stocked with everything you could possibly need! Thanks Beverly!!
We'll be back!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your return to Media Luna and letting us know that you had another great vacation. Swimming in the open waters of the Gulf, and watching the beautiful sunsets, certainly offers great memories in the future. We look forward to you returning in the future.

Awesome retreat for our annual family vacation. This was our second year at Media Luna and we booked it for next year as well. You can't get a better location in the Keys! You are right on the gulf for spectacular sunsets every night, and easy access to the Atlantic from both Vaca Cut or the 7 mile bridge. Thank you Beverly for our home away from home!

Only Gulf PLace

This home is fabulous. Plenty of room to be together and plenty to be apart! It has a protected boat area which is wonderful on the gulf side due to the boaters that don't appreciate the courtesy of a no wake area.Sunsets were one of a kind each night. Home is a little dated but who stays inside in the keys?! The back area view and back porch as well as sea wall were wonderful places to be! We loved our 7 days here.

Owner's Response: Great you enjoyed our home and had a fabulous time. Everything draws you to the water, even the Cyprus beamed ceiling that cascades from the street side to the water. We have attempted to keep the feel of the fabulous Keys in our period home.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Great quiet neighborhood location perfect for morning walks. Very convenient with grocery stores nearby(WinnDixie & Plublix) . The house is just as depicted. Nice layout, clean, great screened in patio. It was so much fun watching the lobsters and amazing fish from the seawall. We spent most evenings on the seawall bench watching the gorgeous sunsets.
This was a great central location for our day trips to the other keys and nearby Sombrero beach was lovely. We truly enjoyed our stay here and would love to do it again.

Central Location, Great View

  • 5 of 5
2 Families, 4 teens. Very large screened/shaded area for relaxing. Windy when we arrived but good snorkeling off of rock wall when the water calmed and the tide cleared the reeds out. Caught some fish off of the wall too. There were dozens of lobster on the rocks in 3-5 feet of water. Saw a barracuda and a nurse shark also.
Dolphin Research Center (swim with dolphins) is a few miles North. Turtle Hospital (turtle recovery/rehab tour) is a couple miles South. Very close to snorkel/dive/fish boats as well. Snorkeling at Sombrero Reef was excellent (boat only-Starfish). Grocery (WinnDixie, Plublix) and KMart are very near to house. Keys Fishery Market has great food. Sunset Grille was good as well. Key West is just over an hour away. Sombrero Beach is nice and very close. Bahia Honda is very nice and 15 minutes away.
House was clean and everything worked fine. Sunsets were great. Great place for a boat but we got lazy and just hung out. Next time...

Fabulous quiet one road in-and-out neighborhood for walking, jogging, biking. Great for multiple people, lots of room for each to enjoy their 'space.' Lounges for use inside or out. Fishing is great off our deck out in the water. Enjoy strolling among our street side fruit trees including a 50 year-old sapodilla tree.
