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

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

Easy access to the Gulf of Mexico, in just minutes.

Beautiful view of Key Colony and the open ocean

Great central location in Marathon

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 wonderful weeks at the Lobster House, the location is perfect, the view is absolutely beautiful from sunrise to sunset, the house is clean, well equipped, and beautifully updated. We fished and swam off the dock, cooked out on the grill and enjoyed the hot tub in the evenings. The house is conveniently located to the grocery and drug store, also Sombrero Beach which is a perfect location for family beach days. The Lobster House was perfect for our family! Mike and Patti are awesome to work with, we had no issues from booking to checking out. We hope to return next year.

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We loved our stay here! Mike and Patti are very helpful and responsive. We caught fish right off the deck. Had a visit from a manatee. We also swam from the deck, rented paddle boards, and were able to dip in the hot tub at night. We had two children share the twin bedroom, parents, and grandparents in the other two rooms. Very clean and spacious. Our favorite lunch spot and place to rent wave runners was Porkys. Swam with the Dolphins and the nearby Dolphin Research Center.

Amazing Home and Location

  • 5 of 5

We come to the keys every year and have rented many homes and non of them compares to this beautiful home. The owners were very helpful and had us feel like we were in our own home. We simply could not get over the view every time we walked outside which was often! I really enjoyed starting my day with a morning cup of coffee watching the sun come up over the Ocean, watching the wildlife effortlessly gliding over the water. Check out the Sea a Turtle Hospital, Living the Dream Fishing Charters, dolphin research Center, and take a day to explore Duval St in Key West. There are lots of restraunts and family oriented places to see in Marathon and it's a great "home base" for checking out other keys. The evenings were just as wonderful watching the sun putting a fire orange sky as it is setting ( spectacular view). We have already booked for next year.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 could not have asked for more. Everything was as described. The house was clean and spacious for all of us to spread out. We cooked most of our evening meals. The kitchen was well equipped. The house is perfectly located in Marathon for all our needs. My son loved fishing right off the dock and we enjoyed the fish for dinner one night. My wife loved the summer breeze right off of the ocean water, along with the wonderful view!
