My husband and I fell in love with the Keys while visiting from Decatur Texas, in 2010. We looked for the perfect vacation home for our family for nearly a year. Marathon is a great community, with wonderful friendly people. We love the fishing! or should I say 'catching' Our dream is to make it a full time home someday.

Mike or Patti Rhine purchased this house in 2012

We just purchased this delightful home in August of 2012. We looked for nearly a year for the perfect ocean front home. Simple yet very comfortable, The Lobster House is one you will be sure to return to. Tucked away in a very quiet safe Marathon neighborhood, you can walk or ride your bike to he local fish market or Walgreens. The beautiful and famous Sombrero Beach is just minutes away. We love the home for the perfect ocean view, never late afternoon sun in our windows, yet a beautiful sunset off to the right. Located just south of the Vaca Cut, you can be in the Gulf of Mexico in just minutes. The perfect location, and the perfect house for the Rhine family!

Easy access to the Gulf of Mexico, in just minutes.

Beautiful view of Key Colony and the open ocean

Great central location in Marathon

We stayed in this beautiful, comfortable, spacious home for a week, and it was not long enough! The view of the water is absolutely gorgeous. We had daily visits from several iguanas for the kids to watch, and a relaxing hot tub with beautiful private view for the adults. This home is located in a perfect location for exploring all of the keys, which we did. Short drive to Islamorada in one direction, Key West in the other. Would definitely stay here again!!

Perfect Vacation House on the Water

  • 5 of 5
First let me start off by thanking Mike for allowing us to rent the property. To say that this was the perfect vacation house would be an understatement. From the moment that you walk inside, you can see the beautiful sweeping views of the Atlantic through nearly every window. I grew up in the Keys as a child so I have high expectations when it comes to the view and ocean access and let me tell you this house did not disappoint. There was plenty of room for my 29' center console with deep water access. The boat ramp and marina were just right around the corner which made it very convenient. The house is much larger than you would think from the pictures with a beautiful covered patio out back overlooking the ocean. The iguanas were a nice change of pace and we soon found out that they love lettuce and watermelon! Fishing was awesome as we spent a couple days offshore and brought in 12 nice size dolphin. Lobstering was also great as we spent a day and a half scouting and managed to bring in a couple dozen lobsters as well. Overall it was an amazing trip that our family soon won't forget. Mike was wonderful to work with (leading up to vacation I had a bunch of questions) and he answered my call every single time. I cannot thank him and his wife enough and want to say that you should rent this house as you won't be disappointed. I have already started planning my next trip to the Keys and can assure you that this is the only place that I will stay from now on.

Unbelievable! Living in Florida and having visited the keys and many other ocean locations too many times to count, we have never stayed in a such a beautiful destination as the Lobster House. From the moment we entered the front door we were mesmerized with the awesomeness of the views, layout of the home, amenities inside and outside, and the overall at home feeling we enjoyed while our week drifted by. The dock was perfect for our '26 and would have easily supported a 36 foot vessel. Even at the lowest tide of the super moon week there was still an easy 6 feet in the entry channel along the walls towards Captain Hooks to the main channel of the Vaca Cut. Getting to the deep blue of the Atlantic only took us about 15 minutes from dock to 300 to 600 feet of depth. The hot tub is a wonderful touch. We spent every evening watching the Tarpon dance as the sun set. My 2 kids spent much of the time either fishing off the back patio or snorkeling around the canal. The design of the ocean side of the property makes you forget that you are in a neighborhood setting. We laughed each time we went out the front door because we would forget about the other homes because they were not visible while on the back oceanfront patio area. As far as we are concerned, the lobster house will be our only keys destination as long as Mike and Patti continue to make it avaliable. The pictures on the site fail to capture the size of the bedrooms and living areas. We were pleasantly surprised to see how big the rooms actually were. The living, dinning, Kitchen, and outside areas were larger than a we expected as well. We had friends rent homes a street away and they wished they had rented this home. I only went inside their rental once. We normally just picked them up by waterway each morning and they sat on our patio every night because it was just that nice. Thank you so much for making this home available for my family. The memories will last a lifetime.

Amazing Amazing Amazing

We stayed at the property as a family vacation, which it happened to be our first time visiting the Keys. Honestly it was difficult to leave to return home, however we are already looking forward to our next visit and yes we will put this property at the top of our list. More than enough room for a family of four, completely relaxed on the dock and fished from the dock. The infamous manatee showed up and hung out for a little while, which was an absolute amazing experience.

Can't wait to come back!!

My wife and I took our first trip to the keys this past week. After searching property after property we decided on the Lobster House. Our first impression of the property when we walked through the door for the first time was the pictures didn't come any where close to doing the inside of the house, or the view from the deck its due justice. It is definitely something you have to see to appreciate it. From the cozily decorated house with ALL amenities you would need included to the semi private dock out back providing a quiet view of the ocean and easy fast boat access to the bay and the gulf, it is literally the perfect vacation spot. In town, it is centrally located next to a bait shop, one of the best bakeries in the keys, and a very short hop to attractions such as the turtle hospital, multiple dive shops, kayak rentals, and a marina. I can't say enough about the hospitality of the property owners as well. I spoke off and on with them in the months leading up to our arrival and they were more than willing to answer any questions I had, be helpful with information about the area, and wanted to get to know us a little better to be able to make better recommendations for us. There was absolutely NO headache involving paperwork, plans, etc, and everything was made completely hassle free.

Ideal for experiencing the variety of the keys

  • 5 of 5
We chose this house for our family vacation and were entirely pleased. It is located almost exactly in the middle of the keys, making it ideal to travel both to Key West and to Largo. However, Marathon itself and the nearby keys provided much more opportunities for dining and recreation than we could exhaust in our week. The house itself has an incredible view of the ocean. We spent a lot of time just staring out from the deck (and feeding those Iguanas). Highlights of activities from our group would include-reef snorkeling at Looe Key, Beach snorkeling at Bahia Honda and Long Key State Parks, sunset cruise out of Marathon, walking on the old seven mile bridge, Tarpon feeding at Robbie's, the Turtle Hospital, looking at the deer on Deer Key, day trip to Key West, and swimming right off the deck of the house. Local restaurant favorites- King Seafood (walking distance from house), La Nina, Brutus Seafood, Keys Fishery, Burdine's, and Sweet Savannah's. There is a lot of of great seafood in the area, but I would recommend the excellent and inexpensive Cuban food in the Keys. Sweet Plaintains became a way of life. We loved the house and would love to return!
