Hello, my name is Cathy and I'm the proud owner/operator of Catherine's Tropical Paradise. I love to travel, and while in the Keys, I'm usually busy taking my three boys fishing and snorkeling.
Cathy Natelson purchased this house in 2003
I grew up in the Northeast USA, so having a vacation rental in the Florida Keys is a dream come true. Marathon supports week to week rentals and since most of our guests are families, this works out great. We love Marathon because of the small town friendly neighborhood culture, the great fishing and snorkeling, and relaxing at Sombrero Beach.
We loved the house and the boat docking area. We stayed 7 days and had a blast. The house was clean and well supplied. It was comfortable and the hot tub was fabulous. We enjoyed being able to get on the boat and go. And then come in at night, clean the boat, fish, eat and get ready for more!!
I would recommend this house to anyone who wants a great place to stay, with boat and water on hand.
We stayed at Catherine's Tropical Paradise over the Christmas period, this house was comfortable, clean and provided us with everything we needed for a most enjoyable 13 days. We hired 2 sea kayaks for our stay which we used almost daily, we fished from the dock and also from the seven mile bridge which was a experience, we caught quite a few fish.
We were also visited over 2 days by a Manetee, who seemed very interested in us, we were preparing to go out in our kayaks, an encounter we will not forget for a very long time.
We ate in a lot, purely because the home is so comfortable, a home from home feel about it, the kids enjoyed the new 55" inch TV, and the hot tub.When we did eat out we tried a few local restaurants, Burdine's for a good burger, The Steak & Lobster place for very good ribs, and The Tarpon Grill did good pizza's.
We would certainly book Catherine's place again, from the booking process, communication via email and finally our stay, everything went smoothly.
When you first walk into Catherine's house you realize there's lots of detail to home comfort. Nice pots and pans to cook on. Beautiful views and each room nicely decorated the house was amazingly clean and tons of games for the kids to play. It was fun watching them play old fashioned Yahtzee and not be on their phones. Boat ride to the ocean was just a few feet away the house location was so close to everything in Marathon we were right in the middle all in all we had a wonderful week and will be renting again from her
You have so many accommodations in Marathon to choose from to suit your needs. But.... We were all very pleased with the choice of Catherine's Tropical Paradise home. The property was convenient to all of our needs, well maintained and clean, the furnishings and home were kept in great condition and the HDTV and entertainment system added to our relaxation after we cleaned the boat every night and on those bad weather days when we were chilling. The ocean access and docking in the back of the home was perfect. A fish cleaning station, fishing and diving equipment cleaning and storage was handy and convenient to the dock. Hot tub and Gas grilling was in great working condition and well maintained. The Parking for our 4 vehicles and a trailer, the extra refrigerator with freezer and many needed xtras like that made the property just perfect for our needs. Cathy made sure we had direct communications and access to her if anything was needed. (But we never had any issues or questions) We had up to 7adults and 2 small children stay as our family members came when they could and left when they had to. We would defiantly stay here again when we decide to take our Family Reunion type vacation again in Marathon. Why Marathon, just take it from those that know, we have visited in the Keys many times in the past 35 years or so. Upper and Lower Keys, but found MARATHON to have the best that the Fla Keys have to offer. Visiting Key West is a must but Marathon is the Best place to stay! Thanks Cathy!! The Ridenour Family
Two of us stay at this house. The house has everything you need. We enjoyed our stay. Close to anything from restaurants to boat ramps. The canal is a very short distance to ocean. We kept a 22 footer there with plenty of room. The neighborhood is quiet. We will return again.
Had a great time you have a really nice property location for fishing is ideal weather was windy & cool but still had lots of fun. The door to outside room did not close very good & for colder nights would be nice to have a space heater for outside room besides that everything was great look forward to coming back sometime.thanks Phil willenborg
Our oceanside canal house is blessed with calm waters due to inshore and off-shore reefs. You can enjoy everything from fishing, diving, snorkeling or just relaxing in our dockside hot tub.. You can fish from our dock or bring a boat and enjoy some of the greatest fishing in the Keys. Also within a couple of miles you will find a kid friendly beach and two golf courses. There is much to do locally such as visiting the Marathon Dolphin Research Center or take a side trip to Bahia Honda State Park. Key West is only 45 miles to the south.
The house is well equipped for kids, ages 2-15+, with a hot tub, DVD surround sound system, cable TV, a large front yard, and a swimming canal.
If you love the keys you'll be right at home.
