Secluded Great Location
Very secluded, good amenities, and a great location.
We are happy that you appreciate our place and our location. Thanks for the review!
Peaceful and family friendly
The staff is very friendly and helpful. Any concerns you may have are addressed immediately. Very quiet location. I saw a review that mentioned all of the stairs. If you live in a two-story home, it won’t be an issue. However, if you have health issues and cannot use stairs, consider another location. There is a staircase from the ground to the first level and a spiral staircase to the bath and bedrooms on the second level. The kitchen was small, but well equipped. Overall, it is very clean, quiet, and perfect for families. We really enjoyed staying at the Coco Plum.
Pictures on Home Away Did Not Match our Unit
Overall we enjoyed our time at this location. The staff was very professional and friendly and the upkeep of the outside of the units was great.
The location was very clean and presentable from outside the unit. The pool, hot tub and pool house area were nice.
Each unit had its own washer and dryer and we were provided with cleaning items such as laundry detergent, toilet paper, trash bags, kleenex, etc.
The location is convenient to Marathon, which offers many options for activities such as snorkel, scuba diving, the Turtle Hospital, grocery stores, restaurants, etc.
Our unit was VERY outdated. The nice pictures on the website were definitely not taken from our unit. That was our biggest disappointment in the money we paid was not for what we thought we were going to get. Major renovations need to occur in the unit we were provided. From talking with other people staying at the location about half of the units have not been updated. The carpet was old and stained. The cabinets in the kitchen were dated. The appliances in the kitchen were old. Floor to ceiling mirrors in a wet bar area upstairs. The light fixtures were from a few decades ago. The pillows need to be updated and the room that has a full and a twin bed was very tight to move around in. The exhaust fans in the bathrooms did not work.
Since the location has a beach, we would have expected the unit to provide beach/pool towels.
The beach area was kind of taken care of. The beach is not that wide (maybe 300 feet wide and 75 feet from the water to the pool) and you have private property signs on either side so you are limited on space for walking on the beach. The beach clean-up was one pass with the beach comber (maybe 8-10 feet) and that was it. That section was nice, but against the water was a lot of sea grass and on the other side closest to the pool was hard.
We all agreed we would stay at this location again as long as we were guaranteed a renovated unit. Our rating of 3 stars was mostly due to the pictures of a very nice unit that we thought we were going to get, only to find out we had a unit that hadn't been updated since the 1980's.
Marathon is in the middle of the Florida Keys. Just 55 miles north of Key West. 20 miles south of Islamorada. 50 miles south of Key Lago. 90 miles south of Miami Airport.
