About Juliana Catalfumo

We love fishing and diving.

Juliana Catalfumo purchased this house in 1985

Why Juliana Catalfumo chose Marathon

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.

Excellent experience. Five stars plus!

  • 5 of 5

HomeAway posting and reviews were very accurate. Absolutely no problems. The house was centrally located. Many extras provided that we haven't had at past rentals like enough household supplies for the whole week, (dishwasher soap, paper towels, toilet paper, etc.) Those little details make the stay stress free. Would recommend house to anyone!

Lobster Season 2016

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just spent a week in this house carrying on our family tradition by teaching the next generation about lobstering. The house was in a great location and the owner and property manager were very accommodating. A great time was had by all!

surprisingly spacious for 8 with tons of amenities

  • 5 of 5

Having a total of 8 people (4 adults and 4 kids) for a week we were very happy with the overall spacious feel of the home. This home was stocked with anything we could need, especially the kitchen which was nice because we cooked a lot. With two boats, the docking space was perfect for us and the fish cleaning station was great. Only thing missing is a pool right at the house but being able to use the Cabana Club for a pool and beach was wonderful on the days that we did not go out on the water. The staff there at the Cabana Club are VERY friendly and made us feel welcome. The owner and manager were both wonderful to work with. This home is great and highly recommended.

Best vacation ever... Loved the fact that it was near everything.. Very clean..

  • 5 of 5

Had such a relaxing time. From sitting on the back porch in the morning with a nice cup of coffee and a wonderful breaze to snorkeling and tubing in the beautiful water.. saw lots of equanas.. The kids took lots of pics of them.. definitely visit the aquarium that is right down the road... We also suggest eating at the sunset grille, you can eat while the kids swim in the pool.... Cabana club was very relaxing, loved the hot tub and the fact you didn't have to get out to get anything they would bring it to you.. Great being a member of the cabana club while staying in a house all to yourself.. House was very clean and very comfortable... Best sleep ever on a vacation.. Master bed was fabulous.. Nice open living space. Great accommodations for the boat.. Thank you for an AWESOME vacation .. The only bad thing is we had to!!
