About The Owner

Our names are Manny and Elena Gonzalez. We’re a friendly couple living in Cape Coral, Florida. Manny is a Licensed Florida Realtor. We first came to the island of Marathon in the Keys in 2003 for a Fishing Trip vacation with our family and fell in love with the beautiful atmosphere. We decided to buy a vacation rental there so that we could visit occasionally and provide a lovely home for other families to make great memories.

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why The Owner chose Marathon

Why you chose Marathon Key: It’s a great place for fishing and there is a lovely beach not far from the house. It’s not far from the liveliness of Key West and Miami, but is distant enough to provide a lovely piece of tranquil Paradise.

What makes this house unique

While staying at our property, you can relax in our heated pool, the SPA is our favorite place. You are a short distance to Key West, where you can visit numerours museums, restaurants, water tours and many many other activities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have spent the last week at Manny's house

here in Marathon and I have to say it has been

the best trip by far! The accommodations are

great and the location is perfect! This house is

very clean and well equipped. I would definetly

recommend this house to anyone!

Nice clean house with everything you expect, plus more! Nice appliances, electronics and well stocked for cooking. Owners replied to a question I had and offered some advice on some things to do on one of our rainy days. This was a last minute rental for us. We had no idea what to expect and we were pleasantly surprised.

Property is exactly as described. Very clean and well equipped. Direct access to the Atlantic, short run to the gulf. Convenient to shoping and grocery stores. If you are fishing the icemaker seals the deal. Highly recommeded.

Worry free week!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time to the keys. The first time we stayed at Hawks cay in duck key which was awesome so we decided to rent this house this time and really try to enjoy the keys. I stood here with my parents, wife, sister, cousin, and of course our little man Ayden (8yrs). The house was amazing and very clean. It had everything that you needed. The pool and hot tub is where we spent 90 percent of the time while we where in the house. The weather was perfect for our entire week. Sombrero beach is literally a 5 minute drive from the house and a must to go spot while your there. The house is perfect for a family getaway like the one we had. The grill and ice machine are a great asset to the pool area. We filled a cooler with ice (which is provided) and filled it with "adult" drinks and kept it by the pool which was so convenient. All in all the house is definitely a place where we would stay again. Great location..

My wife, two children (ages 12 and 14), and me stayed here for a week. We will undoubtedly return for another stay! Manny's home is clean and well kept. The pool and hot tub are amazing. We used the outdoor grill and there is plenty of outdoor seating under the tiki hut (as well as an outdoor tv), and two patio tables. The washer and dryer was a life saver since we beached it every day!

Location is perfect. We had an amazing time. The only thing I wished the home had was spices and condiments for cooking so we didn't have to buy that stuff (although there was salt and pepper).

Our deposit was promptly returned, and we had no problems getting into the house when we got there. HIGHLY recommend.

Truly is the best!

  • 5 of 5

I've been coming to the Keys for about 8 years with family and friends for our annual fishing trips. I rent the house my buddy rents the boat for a week and it's time to fish and relax around the pool with umbrella drinks or a beer. This is the second time I rented the Best Marathon House. It would've been a third time but it was booked by the time we figured out our dates. We love this place. It's clean and has everything working in top shape and has everything we need. The bait freezer and ice machine seal the deal. Can't wait for next year!
