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 Middle Keys because of the fact that we are close to everything from here. an 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!

Beautiful property, well-maintained, good access to ocean by boat, close to grocery stores and K-Mar

  • 5 of 5

Craig Roe was extremely welcoming; we spoke several times by phone and text as he checked on us an to assure that all was working well. While adjacent properties had considerable visible residual damage from Irma 6 months after the hurricane, Craig's property was pristine - evidence of his considerable work and expense to restore it. It is on a double lot, with the "Oasis" part being on the double part: the pool, hot tub, tiki hut, corn toss, gas fire pit, barbecue, hammock, new dock, porches and balconies, and other made it such that we could have stayed on property with our 10 family members (reunion with our kids and grandkids) the entire week! The place was perfect!

Most incredible vacation home and location or family has ever been to date! The home is beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The layout of the house is wonderful and very guest friendly! Beautiful decks around the first floor and a wonderful master bedroom balcony to experience the most beautiful sunrise ever! Fabulous location convenient for shopping and incredible restaurants. Best lobster ever! Everyone we encountered in marathon was very friendly! The backyard is beautifully landscaped and private. The kids enjoyed all the backyard activities, The pool and Jacuzzi are absolutely beautiful. The Tiki hut was a wonderful relaxing area to sit visit and watch the children in the pool. There is even a beautiful sand area where the youngsters enjoyed hours! With corn hole and Chess and the private Hammock area there is never a minute of not being entertained by this property! We enjoyed many evenings enjoying the beautiful outdoor gas fireplace and relaxing in the comfortable screen room. The pool lighting and landscape lightning are absolutely beautiful at night! It is a true paradise! My husband and children several days fishing. Had a great time and caught lots of fish!!! We had a wonderful time spending an afternoon anchored at the sandbar absolutely beautiful water and incredible views in every direction you look. Would highly recommend this home can’t think of one complaint everything was perfect!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We will definitely be coming back for another vacation to enjoy this incredible property !!!!!

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.
