Everything is this rental is very comfortable. Furniture is nice; beds are comfy; the floorplan flows nicely and the outside deck is so relaxing. We have stayed in many different places in the Keys, and will always try to book this location in the future. Thank you!

Great location, great home!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental is in a fantastic location - one home in from the Atlantic. Especially great if you bring your own boat, because you can dock right outside the back door and be in the water in seconds. Extras include water, fish cleaning table and electricity by the dock. Nice back deck, grill and lounge chairs. It was super-helpful to have a washer & dryer. Inside is nicely done, well stocked kitchen, great linens, towels, and comfortable beds. Owners beyond helpful and lovely people. Would definitely stay here again!

Wonderful week long getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We've been going to Marathon for several years on a family trip and just aged out of the family's main house due to there being so many of us. 4 of us stayed here and enjoyed it! The home is spacious, well air-conditioned, and clean. The location is great - quiet and safe. The kitchen is full of everything you need for cooking. We enjoyed breakfast on the patio each morning and made lovely conversation with our neighbors - a group of men on a fishing trip. Our only wish was that there were beach towels since we didn't pack our own! Oh well. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks for everything!
