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 Central Florida Keys

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!

Amazing Oasis in the Keys

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for an amazing place to stay in Marathon Key, this may be the best rental on the Island! The house is fantastic, with two refrigerators, upscale washer and dryer, granite countertops and top of the lime mattress in the Master sweet was a real bonus!!! The canal is deep enough for any size boat, but I found the outdoor area and heated pool turned out to literally be the best part of the house. The palm trees are strategically arranged around the patio to create the perfect oasis and they also provided a cooling shade to half of the yard during the hottest part of the day. I had to force my family out of the pool each day to go do the other things Marathon had to offer, but getting back in the pool was the first thing we did when we returned each evening.

Check in/out was simple, parking was plentiful and the local neighbors were friendly. The kyats were in great shape and the lifejackets in the storage area under the house were clean.

This is my third rental house in the Keys, and the standard has just been set by the Dolphin Oasis. I wish I would have found this house three years ago. Now that I have, I will be back again for sure. That being said, we have not decided on a date for next year yet, so if you are thinking about renting in June/July of 2018....(please keep looking around at other houses until I finalize my reservations dates later this year, that would be great!).

If I had one complaint, it would be that that the home air conditioner was locked at 72 degrees. I understand the reasoning, and most of the time the temperature was just right, but there were times during the day that it was just too hot inside the house (even if you kept the doors closed), and I woke up at least two nights during the week sweating.

That being said, I had no other complaint and I will rent it again next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you so very much for the great review, the property was designed to be something "different" for the Keys area, focusing on a private resort feel rather than just a place to stay in the keys..... and are very happy you enjoyed your stay. and the temperature setting for the air conditioning has been an issue for us in the past as before we went with the "NEST" system we were having issues with the A/C being turned so low that the condenser would "freeze" up, due to humidity in the keys I was told, and would not work at all...... so we ended up with 72 as the "safe" setting but we do have the ability to make adjustments to the system remotely and if in the future the temperature isis not to your comfort level please feel free to give us a call and we will try to make adjustments to the system to accommodate your comfort level. we are looking forward to having you back Mark and thanks again for staying with us The Roe Family

Beautiful property, great location

  • 5 of 5

Dolphin Oasis is a wonderful property! The house is spacious and was perfect for our party of 10. The home was clean and the kitchen provided everything we needed for preparing meals. The outdoor space is both private and beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool, hot tub, and tiki. We also kept our boat docked at the house and found the reef and other good fishing/snorkeling spots were easy to get to from this location. The description and pictures are an accurate representation of the property. The owner is helpful and easy to work with as well. You will not be disappointed if you book this property!

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

One of the best vacations ever. The grounds are beautiful and felt like we were at a five star resort. There was really no need to leave the property but we did take a full day trip to Key West and the local taxi service's were great too. Just book it, you won't be disappointed.
