Fantastic Home

  • 5 of 5

This home had it all. They just redid the entire home and installed a fantastic large heated pool. What a great time we had relaxing on a great wrap around porch enjoying the sea breeze. The furnishings were lovely. Expensive comfortable beds and stylish living room furniture. In minutes we were fishing in the Bay or Atlantic. The kids had fun catching Mangrove snapper off the dock. The property manager gave us a list of neat restaurants and close by sandy beaches. We are coming back to this lovely clean home.

Could Not Have Been Happier

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with the house or with John , What a great place to stay in January when the weather is cold up in north Alabama. We have all intensions on renting it again next year and staying a month instead of 2 weeks

Cant wait to come back

Marathon at it's Best

  • 5 of 5

This home is well maintained and clean. The pool is very large and made it nice on the windy day we couldn't fish. The canal is very clear.....we could see the bottom and the parrot and angel fish...also saw a manatee and her baby in the canal. We caught some fish and the home was beautiful.

Spring Break Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We made it to the Keys at 2:00 a.m. after flight and rental car delays; however, we were very happy when we finally pulled up to our house for our week. After unpacking, we sat outside by the canal, had a drink and decompressed while watching the full moon over the trees. The house looks exactly like the pictures on the website. It's clean and all of the furniture is new and in good shape. All the beds were made and we had plenty of towels. Even though the temperature outside was only in the 70's, we could enjoy the pool as the solar blanket kept it warm enough to swim. The house seemed to be very recently renovated; consequently, a couple of small things could have been added to the amenities - like extra spoons and coffee mugs, some books/movies, etc. (We couldn't find the DVD player and used our computer to play our movies on the TV.)

Over the course of the week, we enjoyed visiting Key West, the Turtle Hospital, Crane Point, Theater of the Sea, and Sombrero Beach. We enjoyed some good seafood meals in Marathon. All grocery shopping and incidental needs were close by and easy to find. For those not familiar with the Florida Keys, Marathon is approximately a 2 1/2 hour drive from the Miami airport and an hour drive to Key West. On our way back to Miami Airport, we made a stop at the Everglades - an experience I'm glad we didn't miss.

I would definitely recommend this home to anyone. We enjoyed our experience in the Keys and it was a welcome respite from the snow in Virginia.
