Guestbook comments from the owner

We certainly found the right one when the connection was made for this wonderful condo in Marathon. The unit was immaculate upon arrival and is a very comfortable place to spend time. Furnishings are more like a personal residence as opposed to the usual rental property atmosphere. The owner has taken every possible initiative to provide everything that you need while away from home. The decorations and furnishings are well kept and provides a very user friendly atmosphere. The location allows colorful sunrises and gorgeous sunsets. A handy boat dock where you may observe the fish or go fishing is nearby. There are handy shops and restaurants located nearby and the location is centrally located in the Keys allowing explorations in both directions. The property has a convenient pool that is also well maintained. The place is really so nice that photos do not fully depict the quality that you will find. If you have been exploring other places...your search can end now. Once your dates and times are decided the process for finalizing the lease is seamless. 5 Stars.

Wow!!!!!! Fantatastic!!!!! The Perfect Place!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow!!! This was the first impression of my family as we walked in the condo and seeing the views. It was exactly as advertised and even more. It was very clean and had a well equipped kitchen. Relaxing and comfortable is also a great description. Relaxing on the two balconies, watching sunsets, relaxing on the couch and seeing the beautiful views, waking in the morning to see the views from our bedroom. Also our beds were very comfortable!! The condo property, dock, and pool are well maintained. The dock is great for boating, fishing, or sitting. We did see a manatee from the dock. The pool is a good size with comfortable lounges and very clean. One thing I also liked was the quietness of the complex. Also, the bedrooms on the second floor allowed for early risers and people that stay up late to not disturb the sleepers. Many activities to take advantage of in this centralized location. Great beaches. A trip to Key West, kayaking and snorkeling. Many wonderful nearby restaurants to choose from. Janet, the owner was very helpful and informative and pleasant to work with. We would love to come back to this condo. It made for a very fun and relaxing vacation. Thank you, Janet.

Marathon with a view!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed in Marathon before but this condo was perfect. It has sweeping sunset views (the best in the complex) and it is right on the water. We loved it.

We very much enjoyed our stay.

  • 5 of 5

This place was very comfortable and roomy, a great place to relax. We stayed for 2 weeks in January and loved the views, the property and the entertaining iguanas that kept an eye on us. We are still enjoying the beautiful pictures taken from this property. The place was very nicely equipped and had plenty of information about eating out and places to see.. It was all described to us and more. We would encourage anyone who loves this area to stay at this condo.

Much better than the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

I was foolish to only book this condo for 1 week! The condo is beautiful and the view overlooking Vaca cut was perfect. We spent hours relaxing on the balcony watching boats come and go. The balconies directly overlook the water with the dock over to the right. We spent most of our time on the lower balcony because that was closest to the kitchen (bar). The view from the upstairs balcony off the master bedroom was even better. The furnishings and decorating were nicely done and living there was very comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need. There is a Publix and a Winne Dixie a 5 or 10 minute drive down the road. We enjoyed Sombrero Beach (10 minute drive). Lots of great food and live music all around Marathon. 1 hour drive to Key West, which is always "interesting". As a Wisconsin family, we were initially surprised by the Iguanas around the condo grounds, but they ended up to be entertaining to watch and we were actually disappointed if we didn't see them. We started giving them names. Minor heads up, if you come, you need to be able to do stairs. As the pictures show, parking is under the flight of stars to the main living area and another flight of stairs to the bedrooms. There were 3 slips available at the dock during our stay. (It's 1st come 1st served and owners get priority). Since the grounds are near the cut, you have quick and easy boat access to the gulf and the Atlantic. Bottom Line, our vacation went smooth as silk and Janet was very quick with all communications. Oh, and I forgot, the pool is very nice (and well maintained).

Owner's Response: Dear Vacationers -- What a fantastic review. I'm glad you enjoyed the views from both balconies. It's just great to sit out there, have your breakfast coffee watching the boats go by, and then in the evenings watch the beautiful sunsets. Thank you again for being our guests and sharing information about our location in Gulfpointe and its amenitites and the nearby beaches and stores. We look forward to your returning to the Keys sometime in the future. All the best to you and your family in 2016. Janet Cunningham

Excellent as advertised

  • 5 of 5

Everything was wonderful and exceeded our expectations. We enjoyed our stay and saw a manatee and other fish from the balcony. The location was prime to do the things we wanted to in the middle and lower keys.

Amazing views from this beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

Luxury, clean and comfortable, with the best views in the Keys! The listing was accurate, the place was spotlessly clean, and the owner went the extra mile to help us and make sure we were happy with the condo. We would certainly recommend it to family and friends. The location is superb, overlooking a wide estuary with boats passing regularly. A few small planes flew over as they took off from Marathon airport but they did not disturb us, since they were high up by the time they flew over. We went to Sombrero beach which was only a few minutes away by car. In fact you could walk or cycle there, and the beach is amazing. There are several good restaurants nearby and a Publix supermarket just a couple of miles away.

Owner's Response: Thank you for an absolutely fantastic review. Glad to hear that the condo was everything the website listed. Just as you enjoyed the view from the balcony of our condo, when we vacation at the condo, we too look forward to spending quiet and restful moments having our morning coffee on the balcony or enjoying the sunsets. We thank you again for being our guests and look forward to having you and/or your friends return in the future.

Car: recommended

This is a beautiful and very unique vacation property, offering spectacular water views, dockage for your boat, swimming, and the privacy of a small complex of 20 condominiums (4 units per building). Being centrally located in the Keys, Marathon offers the convenience of being close to a vast array of restaurants, sightseeing adventures, Sombrero Beach, diving, snorkeling, boating and some of the best fishing in the Keys. Local attractions such as the Dolphin Research Center, The Turtle Hospital, Crane Point and the historic Pigeon Key are close-by.. Our condo is just north of the famous 7-Mile Bridge and Key West is a scenic 1-hour drive away through some of the most beautiful tropical islands.
