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

Thanksgiving for Two

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful week we had celebrating both our anniversary and a quiet Thanksgiving for two. We enjoyed the peace and privacy of this perfect home on the sea. I had plenty of time to read and relax while my husband fished from the pier. We rented a kayak this time, but next time will probably try a flat bottom boat, to explore the mangroves and watch the sunsets. On our one rainy day we visited the Turtle Hospital and the Crane Point Museum and found them both to be informative and worthwhile. We went down to Key West for Thanksgiving, took the trolley tour and had our "fancy" dinner at Louie's Backyard. Our favorite adventure of all was our day spent at Aquarium Encounters. Our friend, Ben, recently opened this amazing place just down the road. We dove in the coral reef and got to hand feed the rays and sharks and eels. You can snorkel if you are not PADI certified in both the large tank or their lagoon. We highly recommend saving a few hours for exploring here.

Seclusion at its Best

  • 5 of 5
We had a last minute trip from NY with our two grown boys. We only called the hosts one day before arriving, they couldn't have been more accommodating. The home was just as you see it in the pictures.
Initionally, there was an air conditioning problem, but it was adjusted by us, and we had no other issues. True the water is not deep there, but it is a lovely home and property.
If we get another chance to return, we would definitely return to this home.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5
Mike and Patti,
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home! We loved, loved, loved it. This home, and yes I say home not house, was everything it was listed as being and more! While we still explored the islands, we ended up doing less of it than we planned because we didn't want to leave home! This home was clean, well maintained, and well stocked with the necessities as well as a few luxuries. Plus a hot tub on the beach, nothing can top that in my book!

My only suggestion would be a few more paving stones between the hot tub and the outside shower. I could never seem to remember my sandals!

Thanks again for a wonderful week! I would recommend this home to anyone!

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!!
