About Beverly Bennett
Frank & I have enjoyed our piece of paradise over the years, first while raising our 3 boys, and now with their families --which include 8 grandchildren. While we have lived in a wooded neighborhood in Virginia all these years, our hearts are at Media Luna with unlimited water views.
Why Beverly Bennett chose Marathon Shores
We fell in love with our half-moon shaped home while house shopping on a cloudy day while our sons golfed at the par 3 nearby golf course. Being in a quiet neighborhood with proximity to grocery stores and shopping sealed our decision. The sandy beach we could bike or drive to also did not hurt.
What makes this House unique
Nothing beats the view when walking thru the front door, unlimited horizon views thru 24 feet of 7 foot high sliding glass doors. The 925 s.f. screened porch with a lobster trap bar that had a wood top from a salvaged ship sold us on Media Luna. We also loved the circular driveway which provided covered parking to keep our car shaded from the fabulous Keys sun.

Wonderful place with amazing sunsets!
We’ve been going to Marathon for over 20 years. This was our first time staying here and let me say that this is the perfect place. It has amazing views from all rooms. It is also well appointed with everything you will need. We especially loved the lagoon and all that comes with it, fish and many other types of wildlife can be viewed directly from the dock. There are many excellent local restaurants, however we did some cooking and grilling which were easy to do with the amenities provided. Their charcoal grills work great. Docking our 17 foot center console boat was a breeze. There is a long fresh water hose for wash out and an outdoor electric receptacle nearby. They even have a top side entry deep freezer on the porch for keeping ice and bait. Parking was great with one excellent spot under the carport at the front door and room for other cars in the front yard area. Overall, this house is simply awesome. Very clean and very well appointed for the perfect vacation. We will be returning next year.
Beautiful view of the water. House has everything you need. We enjoyed our stay very much.
House was perfect for our needs. We rented a 23' boat for 3 days and the lagoon with dock worked out great. Walk out the back door and be on the water in minutes. I highly recommend this property!
A very nice home and location
Location is right on the Gulf in a quiet residential neighborhood. Owner is very nice and easy to deal with. Place is very spacious, lots of seating, 3 cable-connected TV's, well stocked and comfortable, especially the beds. There is a huge back porch facing the Gulf complete with a rustic bar which might be good for celebrations. We moored our little fishing boat and launched our kayaks right in the lagoon behind the house. The lagoon stayed calm even during the really windy days. It was cool to see all the lobsters that hung out on the rocks right below the seawall. Fishing off the seawall wasn't that great while we were there - only small fish. Four adult bicycles were available for our use. They also had a couple of coolers and noodles for playing/swimming in the shallow lagoon, but the water was still too cold while we were there during Easter week.
The only gripe I had was a personal one. I do not like to be out much in the really bright sun; prefer some shade. Because the best part of the house faces west right over the water, it was impossible for me to go out back between 3 and 7 p.m. since the bright sun beams directly at you and the effect is magnified by the water. The kids didn't mind at all, though, and like I said, it's my own personal issue, not a fault of the property. Just wanted to put it out there in case someone else had the same issue. It makes for some great sunsets, though.
Awesome view and location
Close to Sombrero Beach ,grocery store and restaurants...what more do u need? Love this place!
Absolutely wonderful exactly as it presents on the website
Media Luna is perfect for the multi-generational family vacation or for a group of friends. This was our second time and once again we came home renewed and closer than ever. Great for fishing from the dock or from your own boat on the gulf and minutes to the Atlantic.
In my opinion Bev has the best place for the money in Marathon.
The three bedroom house could accommodate thee couples easily.
It was just me and my wife for week and we absolutely loved the the amount of room this house offered. We rented a 23 foot boat and
and found the dockage perfect. For seven years we have been renting
different VRBO homes in the keys and found this was the best. Our search is over trying to find the best place to suit our needs as this place was perfect. Being from Minnesota, cant wait until next winter to come back to Bev's. Thanks again for a great stay, maybe two weeks next year.
Swim in Gulf waters within 20 steps of back door. Awesome sunsets. Horizon views from every room. Great quiet neighborhood to walk, jog or bike. City run sandy beach within 5 miles. Many shops/restaurants nearby. Dolphin park/museums and nature parks in Marathon. Boat/water sports rentals nearby.
