About Jan & Ed Burnsed

We wanted a tropical vacation home and started our search in the Bahamas Out Islands; from there we traveled to the US Virgin Islands, British Virgin Islands, Costa Rica and Belize. We found some wonderful homes but each had drawbacks so we decided to look closer to home in the US. We took a trip to Marathon Florida Keys in 2011 and found all the conveniences of home, grocery stores, drug stores, restaurants, water front bars, charter boats, beaches and, if needed, a hospital. On that trip we purchased a waterfront park model recreational vehicle. After spending a lot of time in Marathon we were sold and started looking for a permeant vacation home there.

We eventually found Tarpon Run at Gulfpoint II, a twenty unit condominium complex with its own dock and fishing pier perched on a Gulf side peninsula at Vaca Cut with access to both the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. In March 2015 we purchased Tarpon Run from Linda and Phil Burkart who had been offering Tarpon Run as a vacation rental home since 2009.

Gulfpoint II located in Marathon. The middle Keys is easily accessible from Key West (50 miles to the south), or Miami (about 100 miles) via Keys Shuttle, rental car or your own. If you have access to a private plane or charter, Marathon Airport is 3 miles away.

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

We loved the condo so much! So many of the places we have rented before in this area are quaint but typically very dated. This unit is updated and fresh and comfortable and was perfect for our family for the week. The added benefit of beach chairs and floats, etc in the trunk downstairs was awesome (to not have to travel with that stuff). Swimming pool was clean and refreshing as well. Would definitely stay here every time we come down from now on! Owners very accessible and even checked on us via email to make sure we had everything we needed.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the compliments on our condo. My husband did a great job on renovations. I just added a few suggestions and finishing touches. We aim to please. You were fantastic guest - the first I’ve had check in and be in Key West the very same night - FUN! You were very pleasant to communicate with and left the place immaculate. We’d welcome you back in a heartbeat! We do hope you’ll visit again! Jan and Ed

A great time in Marathon!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Tarpon Run! The condo is very nicely decorated and the included additions of fishing gear and beach chairs were a big plus! We watched the sunset almost every night and the true highlight of the stay was the two large manatees that came right up to us at the pier! It looks like Marathon is coming back well from the recent hurricane and we will try to come back in the near future.

Just Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect! The house was beautiful, clean, and comfortable. There were beach chairs and a cooler available for use, which came in handy on our many trips to Bahia Honda and our one day trip to Sombrero Beach. Fishing poles were provided and we all enjoyed fishing off the dock and caught a large variety of fish, we also saw several nurse sharks as well as a sea turtle. The sunsets were incredible and the pool was very relaxing after a long day of playing on the beach. The beds were incredibly comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with everything for the several meals I made there, and we even cooked some lobster on the charcoal grill which tasted amazing! We've stayed at several different locations around the Marathon area and in the keys and this was hands down the nicest place we've stayed, and the most convenient as well with many necessities provided that made our vacation so much more relaxing and enjoyable. The neighbors were also very friendly and helpful and provided us with a wealth of information about fishing of the dock. Thank you again Jan and Ed for sharing your home with us. We will definitely be back!

Beautiful Condo in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic week at the condo. The location was great and condo was beautiful. Loved having the beach chairs and towels available so we didn't have to worry about bringing them. Had a little problem with airconditioning but one email to Jan and she was on it and had it fixed right away. Jan was very easy to work with and wanted to make sure our stay was the best it could be. If we ever return to the area, I would definately look into their condo again and will tell any friends that visit about it.

Wonderful condo, very comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable, quiet, relaxing place to stay, but still lots to do when at the condo. My son & husband fished from the dock & my daughter & I enjoyed the private feeling pool. Condo is super! Lorraine is on site with helpful suggestions on restaurants and activities. We enjoy the family atmosphere of Marathon & this condo is close to all the fun things to do!
