We were looking for a tropical destination that would provide numerous activities for the whole family. We found it at Whimsical Seas. With such busy lives this beach home allows our family to spend quality time together swimming, fishing, grilling by the pool, boating and kayaking in some of the most beautiful water in the world.
We have one of the largest yards in the area. Its completely private and fenced. The kids and pets have room to run and plenty of space to park your boat, cars and RV. And the pets love the grassy areas.
Although the weather was less than ideal, we had the best time here as the house/pool/ and dock were so well equipped and pleasant that we felt like we were in Paradise!!!!!
Great location in The Keys and close to the beach. When everyone else in the country was experiencing extreme colds, we were able to kayak and swim in our beautifully private pool. We each had our own space and yet plenty of room to enjoy each others company watching one (of many possible) DVD's.
Oh, and we were even treated to kayaking alongside three manatees in the canal!!! What a treat!! We would return to this property again with no hesitations.
P.S. Sherry was super :-) in answering any questions or requests!
We booked the Whimsical Seas as a winter surprise for our grown children. The house was nice . Very clean and had everything we needed. Loved the pool, needed the heat , temps were mid to low 70s. Made breakfast each morning and went out for dinner at some of the places recommend by Sheri. She checked in on us regularing giving us ideas for things to see and places to grab a bite. Sheri and her husband were quick to respond if we need anything. Hope to go back again, next time would rent a boat.
Excellent rental home well equipped in a great location.
The house has everything you need to have an amazing escape into paradise. It is situated 2 blocks away from Sombrero Beach and has a canal in back that opens up into the ocean. The whole family had an amazing time kayaking everyday from the home and relaxing in the beautiful inviting pool. The property manager Sherry makes your check in and check out very pleasant and worry free. Can't wait to come back to this beautiful property. Will definitely rent a boat next time.
We arrived at the Marathon home for Mini Lobster Season 2014. Three adult couples, no children, and two boats, the home and the property were very pretty. I will say the pictures that were posted about this home online are deceiving, it appears to be spacious and very accommodating to six people. It is very small and you are in tight quarters. There is no room to even eat at the dining room table, fixing meals and eating together is near impossible. Be aware that the upstairs bathroom is open to the whole house, the shower is glass blocks that do not even go to the ceiling, you can see and hear quite a bit. If you are a big boater like we are be mindful of how far the canal is from the actual water. It is about a 20 minute ride from the dock to the end of the canal, a good 30 minutes from 7 mile bridge. Overall the house was nice, just very deceiving as far as size. It was also quite a shock on the day we were leaving to have the cleaning lady and the property manager show up before it was even time for us to leave. The cleaning lady showed up around 8:20am and sat at the front door while we packed and loaded our vehicles while the property manager cleaned the pool with us still there. We did not have to be out until 10:00am so it made it quite uncomfortable to have them there watching us like hawks while we were packing up. If you are looking for a small quaint, private getaway this would be the perfect location for you! We would not return back to this home due to the size, upstairs bathroom and the inconvenience of the keepers showing up while we were still there.
We had four couples come down for a memorial day weekend trip. The house is in a perfect location and is stocked with everything you need (cookware, beach towels, linens, Ipod player, air mattress, kayak, fishing rods, pool toys, etc). It's a quick walk to sombrero beach and has Publix, Super KMart and a million other retail stores just a mile away. Whole yard is fenced in and perfect for dogs (we brought our two english bulldogs..they had a blast). Everything was wonderful, and Sherry was great checking in on us! Would definitely return.
My husband and I came down with our 15 month old baby. We had a nice time. The home is stocked with pretty much everything you need. Shari was very attentive to our needs and very nice. The beach is just a quick walk down the street and the grocery store is also just minutes away. A couple of days the pool area was taken over by bees so we were unfortunately not able to use but other than that no complaints! Would definitely return.
This house is in a great location since it close to the beach and stores. The long walking/biking path is really nice. We had warm weather and were able to do all outdoor activities. We loved the large palm trees and the fenced-in pool. There are sunny areas and shade at the pool and house which was wonderful.
The island community of Marathon in the Florida Keys is a tropical getaway for your whole family. It maintains a retro, nautical atmosphere with family-friendly festivals and attractions. Activities include dolphin swims, snorkeling, kayaking, deep sea fishing and boating. Seafood festivals are scheduled throughout the year, and plenty of local restaurants feature fresh catches. Catch your own lobster for dinner during lobster season that runs from August to March. Fishing is ideal off the pristine Sombrero Beach. Leave from our dock with your 3 Person Kayak provided with our property. Visit Crane Point to hike to the preserved home of a 20th century settler family. If you bring your own boat, caretakers Jay, and Sherry will meet you at the boat launch, help you launch the boat, and Captain Jay will ride along to show you to your vacation home by water. Ask about fishing trips offered for this rental.
