About Rent My Island

We fell in love with the Florida Keys back in the 1980's when we took our first trip there. We toured the Keys from the water in a catamaran. We bought our first place there shortly after. We love owning all these properties in the Keys because it gives us a reason to come down from Wisconsin a couple times a year. We are looking to retire to the Keys someday.

Rent My Island purchased this house in 2005

Why Rent My Island chose Marathon

We purchased two side by side 4 bedroom homes on the Gulf of Mexico with a beautiful view and room for us to bring family and friends.

What makes this house unique

These homes have 100' Docks and beautiful views. We have added swimming pools, kayaks and sandy shorelines.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We all had a really great time. There was myself, wife and 2 teenage sons, my friend, his wife, and his teenage son and daughter. The 4 bedroom house was plenty big enough for all of us. I think the open concept of the living room/dining room/kitchen really helped it NOT feel crowded. The kids loved the pool, the kayaks and fishing from the dock when they weren't playing video games. The wives enjoyed sunning on the beach and cooling off in the pool. Us guys were able to catch several types of fish from the dock including barracuda, nurse shark, a small tarpon, grunts, and a couple fish that we didn't know what they were. We seen an octopus 'walk' past the dock, and seen sting ray, crab, lobster and a manatee near the dock. Jim told us to hang a chum bag in the water from the dock and the fish would come to us. They really did. I recommend doing it when the tide is a little calmer for more success.



As far as sight seeing, the beaches (Sombrero Beach, Bahia Honda State Park, Coco Plum) are all great. The key Deer are everywhere at dusk in Big Pine near the 'No Name Pub' on 'No Name Key' and also on 'Key Deer Road' past 'The Blue Hole'. Key West's Mallory Square is also amazing the hour or so before sunset. The area at the waters edge looks totally abandoned during the day, but near sunset, it completely springs to life with performers doing incredible shows and vendors with unique items. After sunset, it dies as fast as it started. Duval Street is the place to be after that. Theater of the Sea in Islamorada, the Dolphin Research Center in Marathon and the Turtle Hospital in Marathon are all places to check out for a few hours to half a day each. For fishing, I recommend a day out with Diego Cordova (http://floridakeysflats.com/) or a half day out with Sea Dog Charters. Don't forget to feed the Tarpon at Robbies in Islamorada.



We spent about as much time out sightseeing as we spent at the house. It was a terrific time all around. Our only complaint was that we ran out of gas for the grill, but Jim had a new tank to us faster than we could have ordered pizza. We are coming back!!!

Great house, nice pool, great for kids.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house, the kids loved the pool and kayaks. Did some fishing off the dock but didn't have much success (but I am not what you would call a fisherman). This was our 2nd time in Marathon staying at a house from Rent My Island, we already have plans to come back again!

Perfect Florida Keys Home!

  • 4 of 5

We have owned in Marathon for over 30 years! We now rent throughout the Keys and fish all over!! This home is perfect for the 5 adults traveling. With the docks and Vaca Cut so accessible this is the perfect location to head out to the Gulf or the Atlantic.

The home comes with a wading pool which is a bonus!! If you are looking for luxury, this isn't your rental. This home is for those, like us, who live the keys life of laid back, kick back, and take in the Keys vibe.

We will definitely book again. They allowed our four-legged family member which we were extremely grateful for.

Thank you again for sharing your perfect Keys home!!!!

Good Value. Good location. Nothing fancy.

  • 4 of 5

Good location. Practically in the middle of the Florida Keys.

The house could use updating but very functional. Sleeps 8.

The outdoor furniture needs to be replaced. Overall a nice stay

for our family.

Fantastic vacation home for family

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from a week long stay at Gulf View Place and we are soooo missing it! We came with our 3 year old daughter, my parents, brothers and an aunt and had a fantastic time. We spent so much time enjoying the pool and swimming in the Gulf - it was fairly windy during our stay but that didn't keep the fish away! The snorkeling was great and the kayaking super fun. The home itself is very spacious and clean; the kitchen was great with a huge counter and plenty of storage space. We also used the grill a few times. The compressor on the air conditioner failed midway through the week but Blake came out at 9:30 pm (within 15 minutes of calling him) and the AC was back up and running the next afternoon after getting a part it from the mainland. Blake even offered to let us stay in the rental home next door since it was unoccupied. We were very impressed by the prompt attention to the issue and sincere concern that we have the best possible vacation. Also, if you are bringing kids, please call ahead to see what types of supplies they have. We were very pleased to find that they had a crib AND a toddler bed, a bouncy seat, stroller and highchair, so there really isn't much equipment you need to bring yourself. Plus the laundry works great. Also, the location, in Marathon, is perfect. Only 1.5 hours to Key West and close proximity to some really fun attractions, like the aquarium, Sombrero Beach and Bahia Honda state park, as well as some wonderful restaurants. We have all agreed that we would love to come back and can't wait for our next vacation!

Gulf View Place at Vaca Cut, Marathon, FL

  • 4 of 5

There was ample room for 7 adults and 3 children. Plenty of amenities in the home. Liked that kayaks were available. Convenient to grocery shopping, etc. The dock good for fishing and boat docking. Area not too good for paddle boarding with Vaca cut being right there...current strong. Variety of attractions in and near Marathon. Good restaurants available.

Awesome waterfront vacation rental!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 families and having the pool and waterfront provided much activities for all of us to keep us occupied! We fished right off the dock daily and snorkeled...it was pure paradise and the view of the gulf of mexico is breathtaking..sitting on the dock watching the sunrise and sunsets was beautiful!! We hope to come back again!!
