About Mike or Patti Rhine

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!

Awesome View!

  • 5 of 5
The moment we walked in to this home we were in awe of the breathtaking view! The pictures of the house does not do the house justice! I loved the way the house was layed out for my family! My son and DIL and their two children were on one side of the house, with their own bathroom in between bedrooms. The master bedroom was on the opposite side of the house and very private. The kitchen was well stocked! The boat dock was convenient for docking our boat, only had to launch once and kept docked remainder of trip! My grandkids loved feeding the iguanas every day! My 5 year old grandson had a great time catching fish, including black tip shark, bonnethead, plus several other species of fish! The Sunset Grille had great view and food! This was my first time staying in the keys, I hope its not the last! Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful home!

The moment we walked into this home the view was breathtaking! The pictures on the website doesn't do the house justice! Loved the layout of the home for our family! The Master Bedroom is private on the opposite of the house, where the other two bedrooms were located for our Son, DIL and our grandchildren. They had their own bathroom to share and we had ours! The kitchen was well stocked! My grandchildren loved feeding the iguanas everyday near the back deck. The boat dock was very convenient, was great to leave our boat in the water the entire trip. The sunset grille has awesome food and great view of sunsetting! Thanks for sharing your beautiful home!

Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Your home exceeded our expectations. We enjoyed our mornings on the patio feeding the iguanas grapes and in the evening fishing, the Jacuzzi, and just so peaceful. It was just what we needed. Enjoyed the Turtle hospital, beaches, snorkeling for lobster, and fishing charter. Great lobster and fish on the grill. We even saw manatees and a sea turtle near the dock. It wasn't that far to get to Key West. We will definitely return and recommend your beautiful getaway to our friends. Thank you!

5 in the Keys

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.

Words can't describe how perfect this home is.....

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.
