About Mike or Patti Rhine

My husband and I fell in love with the Keys while visiting from Decatur Texas, in 2010. We looked for the perfect vacation home for our family for nearly a year. Marathon is a great community, with wonderful friendly people. We love the fishing! or should I say 'catching' We are now proud to say that we are full time residents of Marathon, and are here to help you with any of your needs.

Mike or Patti Rhine purchased this house in 2012

Why Mike or Patti Rhine chose Marathon Shores

We just purchased this delightful home in August of 2012. We looked for nearly a year for the perfect ocean front home. Simple yet very comfortable, The Lobster House is one you will be sure to return to. Tucked away in a very quiet safe Marathon neighborhood, you can walk or ride your bike to he local fish market or Walgreens. The beautiful and famous Sombrero Beach is just minutes away. We love the home for the perfect ocean view, never late afternoon sun in our windows, yet a beautiful sunset off to the right. Located just south of the Vaca Cut, you can be in the Gulf of Mexico in just minutes. The perfect location, and the perfect house for the Rhine family!

What makes this house unique

Beautiful view of Key Colony and the open ocean

Excellent home in a very beautiful location- so glad we chose this rental.

  • 5 of 5

This home is in the most convenient and beautiful location, close to everything yet seemed like we were far away from everyone when at the house. The view off the deck is amazing and we ate all of our meals that we had at the house out there. The view was capivating and we saw lots of the local wildlife including pelicans, herons, iguanas and a large pod of dolfins swiming about 4 feet off the dock. We also rented a tandem kayak to explore with from Curly's and kept it tied off the dock for the week, very convenient. The hot tub was awesome and I also swam off the dock almost every day. The house is well furnished, beautifully decorated and had everything we needed to cook, fish and there were even some folding chairs to take to the beach. We went to Bahia Honda a couple of times as we always do when we're in the Keys, went to the Sunset Grill, the Key's Fisheries and of course Curly's Coffee. We had a great time stayng here, would definitely stay here again.

Love the Lobster House!

  • 5 of 5

The Lobster House is better than ever! Mike and Patti have made wonderful renovations following Hurricane Irma, and the house is beautiful. We loved the new master bedroom and bath.

We especially enjoyed the expansive views while sitting in the hot tub.

Thank you for letting us be the first to enjoy the "new" Lobster House. We are already looking forward to next year!

Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

It is the perfect house and location. I was able to park my triple axel trailer in the front of house with no problem and still park a dodge 2500 truck and a car. Beds are comfortable and view is amazing. Five stars from this satisfied family.
