About Craig Roe

Me and my Family Purchased this Home in 2015 after falling in love with the Keys and the Home Town feel of the Marathon Area.

Craig Roe purchased this house in 2015

Why Craig Roe chose Marathon

We chose the Central Keys because of the fact that we are close to everything from here. and hour to Key West and an hour to Key Largo, right on 7 Mile Bridge and 15 minutes from Bahia Honda Beach, and 2 miles from Sombrero Beach (2 of the nicest beach in all the Keys IMO)

and only minutes by boat to the amazing "Sombrero Reef", The Home of North America's Only Living Coral Barrier Reef, And The Third Largest Coral Barrier Reef in the World!

Not to mention "Marathon" seems to have gotten lost in the 70's, the people on this island are amazing and the atmosphere is something you have to experience for yourself to truly understand "The Keys" lifestyle

What makes this house unique

Our home is located is a great neighborhood, a short drive to key west with "EVERYTHING" you need within a mile away, groceries, liquor store, gas, bait, ice, etc.

for the boater in me, I love the fact that I am on open water and the reef in literally MINUTES!!!!! which is way better than some places I have stayed where you have a 30 minute ride at idle just to reach the open water.

Great for a family vacation! Even better than pictured!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 adults loved our week at Dolphin Oasis. There was more than enough room for us all both inside and out. We enjoyed the pool and spa every day and the dock for boating. Our dog enjoyed chasing lizards and exchanging friendly barks at the dogs across the canal. The outside is truly resort-like. It felt like we were the only people on Marathon. Many naps were taken under the cabana on the super comfy couch. The kitchen was well stocked and we had no problems preparing meals. Thank you Craig! We are ready to book for next year!

Fabulous vacation home for family and friends

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful spot with great pool/spa area. Thank goodness since all the beaches in the middle Keys are closed due to Hurricane Irma. We were there Christmas week for a family reunion (9 people from all over the world).

Marathon Key is perfectly located since it's just 50 miles from Key West and 50 miles from Key Largo. Since the reefs off the middle Keys were devastated Key Largo is the only area offering the scuba/snorkel experience, albeit limited.

The affects of the September Hurricane can be seen everywhere. The hospital is being run out of FEMA type trailers; the Winn-Dixie is closed but Publix is open; and, the Home Depot can't keep stock on the shelves. As soon as a shipment arrives it's gone.
