Why Larry Baker chose Marathon

Marathon is a renters paradise. You can choose from any water sport, enjoy nearby beaches, eat in fabulous restaurants, or just relax at our home. Key West is only 50 miles to the west and Islamorada is only 28 miles to the east. Enjoy!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! There were 3 couples, and plenty of room for everyone to have their own private space. We enjoyed sitting outside on the balcony; the hot tub; fishing off the dock'; the roof for star gazing, and the pool. The home is very clean and had everything we needed. We went on a fishing trip and had a great time! Also, it is close to many restaurants and stores. One day, we drove to Key West and spent the day and night. It was only about a 45 minute ride. I would recommend this home - we really enjoyed ourselves! (We also met the lovely couple from Rhode Island that stay in the home behind this home that gave us some helpful tips of places to go to!)

Great time was had by all!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and our two college age children plus two of their friends spent Spring Break 2015 at this property. What a treat to stay in a place that is very well maintained and clean. Plus, you can't beat the view! After talking with people staying in other units, we discovered they were not as nice and cost more. Larry provides lots of basic items that would cost you a lot if you had to supply them. He recognizes that people traveling by air don't have room to bring beach towels or chairs and you wouldn't be able to take the basic items back with you. He provides everything he says plus more. There are many items in the pantry and refrigerator for your use. We caught fish off the dock and enjoyed manatee visits several days. This was my third time staying in Marathon and this property is the best by far! We would definitely stay here again.

Blew out expectations out of the water!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We came here for our honeymoon...after a busy year planning and finalizing plans for our wedding this was exactly what we needed. Larry was phenomenal on the walk through of the house, there was nothing that we didn't know (he even helped me gather some fishing gear to use from the dock).

We only used one bedroom, but there was more than enough for two - three more couples. The house was beautiful and offered all the amenities you could need. Larry keeps a lot of brochures for sightseeing, restaurants and shopping inside of the door so you'll never wonder where to go.

We will be back!!!!

Awesome place with amazing views!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six stayed here over Christmas break. This place is everything we needed and then some! The house has extra ammenities and the pool is awesome right outside the door and the rooftop deck cannot be beat! Larry was extremely helpful and very informative on the area and anything with the house! This being our first visit to the Keys we didn't know where the best place to stay would be and Marathon would definitely be one of the best! It's not near as busy as Key West! If you're looking for a very upscale and clean place this is it!

Honeymoon Heaven

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I rented this home from 10/27-11/3/14 for our honeymoon. This was my first visit to The Keys & I do not think we could have picked a better place to stay. The house was absolutely amazing & had everything we needed & then some. The house is very modern & clean, I felt like a princess with our fancy master suite. We pretty much stayed at the house for our entire trip as it was like we had our own aquarium to snorkel in our back yard. The fishing off the dock is great as well, we caught a wide variety of fish & were able to keep a ton for dinner. I have to admit that I was sold on the home as soon as I saw the rooftop terrace, on our first night we saw more than 8 shooting stars within an hour. We also enjoyed the private hot tub. The location of the home couldn’t have been better, we were centrally located near several restaurants & grocery stores; we highly recommend The Island Fish Co & The Wooden Spoon. Larry was a pleasure to deal with, he showed us how to operate everything upon arrival & left a handy book with detailed info of places to go & things to do in the area. We cannot wait to come back & visit again soon.

The highlight of our vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to visit the Keys and it was our first VRBO. The home exceeded expectations on all fronts. We took four teenage boys to the Keys for the week. The way the house is laid out, it provided plenty of personal space for everyone. The view is truly spectacular from each level of the home. Everything was very clean, beds were comfortable, the kitchen was ideal and well equipped for that size group and everything was impeccably maintained. The elevator was a great addition if you don't like the exercise that stairs have to offer.

Some things we did during the trip: two snorkel trips (Spirit and Bahia Honda State Park - both were excellent), rented bikes from Wheels to Go (they deliver and pick up) - would recommend taking a left out of the gated community and riding through the City of Key Colony, went on two charter fishing trips, one trip yielded two very large Mahi Mahi and some Black Fin tuna, we took it to a restaurant and they cooked our catch, the guys also enjoyed the cable wake boarding park even though three of the four had not wake boarded before, we grilled out on the nice grill provided with the home and enjoyed the private hot tub and community pool overlooking the open water. The guys enjoyed sunning on the upper deck. The downstairs fridge and freezer really came in handy.

If you are into boating, I would highly recommend bringing or renting a boat for the week. The home offers a great convenient place to dock a boat within steps of the house. We will definitely do this next time.

Bring some snorkeling gear. You can snorkel right off the dock. The water was very clear.

Larry was great to work with and we would rent from him again on our next trip to Marathon.

The home is also conveniently located within 3 miles of a Publix. As the Mom in the group, I spent a lot of time there.
