About Kim Erickson

I love traveling and meeting new people. My first property that I owned and later decided to rent I truly love the peacefulness of the home.After renting and working with my renters I realized how satisfying it was. I have always enjoyed the personal connection with others when all went well and there voice or smile expresses it.

Kim Erickson purchased this house in 2013

Why Kim Erickson chose Marathon

Well where I live it gets very cold most Winters and I just decided to start looking for a place on day. I looked for some time and finally decided on this peaceful abode. I was hoping my son who would be a junior in High School would say Great! but at his age I realized that would be scary, so I understood. Being maybe a block from this adorable new school it was worth a try. Well now I'm going to be stuck all Winter in the cold North.Dreaming of all the fun others are having.

What makes this house unique

The pool heats, boat lift is automatic.The finest most comfortable mattresses I could find. Top of the line: TV's high speed internet and cable. Music pandora. Very large very soft towels.pull out Queen sofa with adjustable mattress. King in one bedroom and Queen in the other.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I caught two good sized fish right at the dock and filet them on the table

by the water. My mom cooked them on the electric grill. You can hear fish jump at night on the screened in porch, very quiet. Everything is close the

grocery store lots of restaurants even Walgreens.

You can ride your bike or walk to the beach just down the road, and that same path is lighted at night. Five star for sure!

My mom liked it because it is very private and has Palm trees around the front and back by the pool.

Great vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay - quiet neighborhood, close to grocery store and the like, comfy bed, and overall well equipped home. Large screen porch to have meals and relax in, and the pool was terrific. Will definitely return if we have the opportunity!

Nice place

  • 4 of 5

The house we rented is actually a duplex. The landscaping makes it very private and the screen porch is very nice. The pool is really small and not conducive to swimming but a nice size to jump in and cool off. The actual duplex was very clean and a great size for two couples but I would not rent it if I had children. The boat dock is nice but the canal is very shallow during low tide and inaccessible.

Great Rental

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental is a great place for anyone wishing to enjoy the Keys. Nearby are excellent restaurants, two grocery stores, one of the best beaches in the Keys and just a short drive to a great state park. The rental was clean and quiet and the owner did everything to make our stay enjoyable and comfortable. We would certainly return again.

Worst experience ever!

  • 1 of 5

Stayed here for our Christmas vacation and it was such a terrible experience we left a day early! The owner was slow to respond and when given the following list of problems she was more concerned with providing excuses than making any effort to make anything right.

Upon arrival the pool was not heated, three out of five lightbulbs in main bathroom were out making it lit like a cave, virtually all the lightbulbs in kitchen were out, kitchen was equipped with three rusted pots, worn and dirty plastic utensils, and when we flushed the toilet in the second bathroom sewer came up in the shower, resulting in the whole house smelling like sewer!

Plus, on our vacation we had to deal with lengthy visits from the cleaning lady, pool guy, and three days later the plumber came out. Last but not least the house is not even equipped with a single full size mirror!

Overall the one star rating is for being in the Keys, the comfortable bed and big screened TV (with no cable) are the only features as advertised, and the house was very clean. As for the customer service of the owner and the experience of staying in a property that is not well maintained or equipped as advertised, it is deserving of no stars!
