Comfortable, Relaxing, Great Location
We absolutely loved our stay in Janet’s beautiful condo. We had never visited the Keys before and were looking for something centrally located that would allow easy access to the parks, attractions, and other communities between Key Largo and Key West. This condo in Marathon was the perfect choice, not only because of its great location, but because it was one of the most lovely and comfortable places we’ve ever stayed. It really feels like the Keys here.
Situated in a quiet, waterfront location, the condo offers beautiful views through the floor-to-ceiling windows on each level. The sunsets were spectacular. The living room, dining room, half-bath, and well-equipped kitchen are on the first level, with the bedrooms and two full baths on the second level. You’ll also have access to beach chairs, fishing gear, a cooler, and beach towels. The grounds around the building are well maintained and include tropical plants and trees. There is covered parking for 2 vehicles on the ground level under the unit.
Numerous stores and restaurants are nearby. We enjoyed eating at the Island Fish Company, which is right on the water and within walking distance. Two major grocery stores are just 5-10 minutes away, so it’s easy to pick up anything you might need for preparing snacks or meals. Janet maintains a nice assortment of brochures, menus, and tourist information if you need a few suggestions for dinner or things to do.
In addition to the local Marathon area, we visited Key Largo, Key West, Islamorada, and several parks and attractions. Bahia Honda State Park is a must-see if you’re into beaches, fishing, hiking, or outdoor activities. It’s beautiful.
If you’ve never rented a condo from a private individual before, there’s no need to worry. Janet made the entire process an easy and pleasant one. She also called us on the evening we arrived to make sure everything was in order and to answer any questions.
Our week here was one of the most relaxing and enjoyable vacations we’ve had. We highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: What a fantastic review of your stay at our condo. Thank you so much. Happy to hear you had such a "relaxing" and enjoyable week. The Keys are a great place to unwind and your description of the condo was just awesome, along with the information on close-by shopping and your visit to the Bahia Honda State Park and other attractions. Thank you again for being our guests at Gulfpointe.
