About Juliana Catalfumo

We love fishing and diving.

Juliana Catalfumo purchased this house in 1985

Why Juliana Catalfumo chose Marathon Shores

We bought our Marathon home as a family vacation home. We had been vacationing in the keys every august since 1976,. Our family enjoyed it so much we wanted to spend more time there than just a 2 week vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time at your house. The manatees were in the cannel which was wonderful. The kitchen was well stocked and it was excellent. We cooked a holiday turkey meal and everything was great.

I really cannot think of anything you could do to improve our stay. We had a great time and it was a perfect place to celebrate the holiday with my sister and her family.

Wonderful Stay in Marathon

  • 5 of 5

The property is much more spacious than the pictures depict. There is a very nice deck on the rear of the home and a nice bar area.

We brought our boat and utilized the canal behind the home. The canal is amply deep and wide, but the access to the canal at low tide can get a little shallow. The lowest we ever had was 1'9". Most of the time it was between 3.5 and 4.

As I mentioned before, the home is quite spacious and plenty of room to spread out. We had six people with no problems at all! There are light commercial/industrial uses nearby, but had no impact on our stay at all!

The access to the Cabana Club is a great asset that guests should take advantage of. There is a very nice large pool, full bar and some dining options, and beach frontage for ocean swimming.

Marathon has plenty of things to do, ranging from boating, riding wave runners or kayaks to just soaking in the sun.

Our experience with HomeAway VRBO was very positive as well. All of our questions were answered in a timely fashion and check in and out couldn't be more simple!

We highly recommend this property for your travel needs!
