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 2013

Why Mike or Patti Rhine chose Marathon

We just purchased this delightful 2nd home in August of 2013. We looked for a home that was not just private but with the perfect ocean front view as well. Simple yet very comfortable, Hide Away Cove 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 markets or restaurants. 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 in the middle of Marathon Key so you can be at any local destination in just minutes. The perfect location, and the perfect house for the Rhine family!

What makes this house unique

Easy access to activities in just minutes.

Beautiful view of The Atlantic ocean

Great central location in Marathon

Nice but not amazing

  • 3 of 5
After reading the many reviews, we decided to stay here for our stay in the Keys. Though the house is big and clean, we felt it lacked several amenities and those extra touches most rentals we have rented offer.
The main bedroom does not get enough AC and the ceiling fan is in need of some work. We tried lowering the AC to help but the owners stop it so it won't go below 72. We oiled the ceiling fan several times so it would work without being annoying.
The hot water must also be set to give only a certain temp as the shower water was not very hot.
As we spent everyday out exploring the keys, it was a good location to hit Key West or areas around Key Largo from. A few nights however we wanted to crash on the couch and watch a flick on TV and relax. The cable is geared to shopping channels, kid programming or religious programming so bring cable to plug your computer in and watch Netflix.
The view was nice and peaceful, but I personally was a bit disappointed that you cannot at all get in the water from the dock for it's pretty mucky.
We travel to FL about every 6 weeks to see family and rent from all areas of the state, mainly beach areas. Usually we find items such as coolers, beach towels, umbrellas, etc for our use. There were none of those "extra touches" at this house so either bring them or purchase once you are there.
The final bit of disappointment was our last day… we were loading up the car at 11:15 a.m. when a car pulled in and a woman was sitting there, smoking and talking loudly on her cell phone. I assumed it was the cleaning woman and I had spent a good amount of time "cleaning" the house, stripping the beds, taking out the trash, sweeping, washing our dishes, etc (we like to leave each house respectfully clean despite the cleaning fee)
She finally got out of her car, still on the phone, talking about how "tourists here show up with their big fat bellies hanging out" and didn't even acknowledge us. Not a smile, nor a polite hello… just on the phone, smoking and being obnoxious. (She also put her cig out in the front area, hid it under one of the planters by the front door!) As she was going inside I finally said something to her about how we left it very clean and also left Beer and Wine and to help herself. She said "ok I will" without looking at us and with that went inside.

It is a nice home and we did enjoy it. It just wasn't our favorite thus far.

Amazing Home and Location!!

  • 5 of 5
This home is where it's at! We simply could not get over the view every time we walked outside which was often! Check out the Sea a Turtle Hospital, Living the Dream Fishing Charters, and take a day to explore Duval St in Key West. There are lots of restraunts and family orients places to see on Marathon and it's a great "home base" for checking out other keys. We even caught a 3 ft Nurse Shark off of the dock that put up quite a fight. We cannot wait to return!!

Henry Flagler's influence on the Keys

We (a family of four) really enjoyed our stay at the vacation rental. The house was clean on arrival. It is well equipped to cook dinner together, which we did every night. The location of the rental is perfect, because it is right in the middle of the Keys and every attraction can be reached easily. Our dad especially enjoyed every sight in connection with the Florida East Coast Railway and Henry Flaglers. The kids preferred the different beautiful beaches and snorkeling and kayaking trips.

Relaxing and peaceful

  • 4 of 5
Home was more than what the pictures revealed. It is large, clean and comfortable. Outdoor shower is great, hot tub even greater and has all utensils and food prep. (Microwave, oven, coffee maker, dishwasher) owners answered phone calls immediately for assistance. We were half between keys and key largo making every single trip relatively short. We went to dolphin research, turtle rescue, tortugas national park (awesome), ice cream, Bahia Honda. House was nice and cool and secluded. Heard no one around but our smiles and relaxing sighs. The only thing that was a little icky was the smell of the seaweed. Which is nature but stinky. Overall a wonderful retreat.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you had a great time and enjoyed our home as much as we do! Your right seaweed is Mother Nature! Luckily it goes out with the tide as quickly as it comes in! There was a lot in Bahia Honda last month too. Most of the time there is absolutely none in our cove. We welcome you back anytime! Patti

enjoyed our two weeks in this amazing home July 19 -Aug. 2 2014

My daughter and I have been coming to the keys since she was 4 years old and she is 22 now . This was the best I have to say, from the beautiful home to the beaches. We usually come in the winter or early spring but came this year with other family that stayed on the gulf. They came for a visit to our house and were shocked at the ocean breeze we had and the home ,which had been beautifully decorated. We loved watching the Iguanas each morning and the bird that dropped by each day. The younger ones kayaked from our dock to Sombrero Beach and made good memories seeing all sorts of fish, turtles and even a hammerhead . We hope to return soon and hopefully stay in the same home. Please don't forget to visit Bahia Honda beach while you are there . Thank you Mike and Pattie

Hideaway Cottage overlooking the Atlantic Ocean at about Mile Marker 57 on Marathon Key

  • 5 of 5
Arrived to a setting just as we expected. Beautiful secluded little cottage with wonderful appointments and a beautifully remodeled kitchen. Enjoyed sitting in the ocean front hot tub enjoying the views to the east. The property was nice and very private. No swimming from this cottage, as the water was very shallow, but the views were terrific. Every time we called the owners to ask questions they were always prompt and forthright with their response. Locally we enjoyed Crane Point and the boat to Pigeon Key and learning of the "Flagler" Florida East Coast railroad. Stopped at all the beaches which were not as nice as we thought they might be -- possibly because of the season?, and did the glass bottom boat out of John Pennekamp State park. Loved our day trip to Key West where there are many things to see and do including the Hemmingway house and "President Truman's "little whitehouse". Also enjoyed Duval Streeet in Key West. Closed out the week with a great charter fishing trip with Capt Brian Macadee out of Islamorada key. This vacation was just as we were told by the owners of Hideaway cottage -- restful and relaxing without a lot of pressure to be on the go touring. As they say, try this little Hideaway, you'll like it.
