Guestbook comments from the owner

The condo is very clean, well stocked and has lovely views from the balcony. The oversized shower is a plus. We loved the pool and the tiki bar comes in very handy. Our first trip to the Florida Keys and loved it. Weather was fabulous

Perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

The location of this condo is wonderful. Beautiful spot on the canal. A short drive to the beach - we could have walked but it was very warm. Parking was excellent at the condo - covered and convenient. It was very quiet and peaceful. Although the condo is not in pristine condition and some minor repairs are needed, it is very much like staying at a friend's house. Very "home away." And those needed repairs do not affect the quality of the stay. Nikki leaves basics that others may not leave. She has even left some spices and seasonings for visitors' use. I would gladly stay here again.

Owner's Response: Hi I am so happy you enjoyed your stay at my condo. There are a couple of repairs needed but with Hurricane Irma approaching I am afraid they will have to wait until I can get there. Thanks again Nikki

Good economic accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Nice room and facilities on the water! New refrigerator (some reviews complained of old fridg). Overall the unit was good for the price. It is showing its age and could use updating. The only two minor complaints are the bathroom towel rack is about to fall off the wall and dead tv remote batteries. I would stay here again!

Great location and price!

  • 4 of 5

The location was great and central to other keys and activities on Marathon, The pool and bar were nice and have pizza close is always a plus.

I'm sure there are likely nicer places around but this place can not be beat for the price!

Great Price on Welcoming Property

  • 4 of 5

I do not feel that the lower rated reviews are particularly fair. This rental is extremely affordable for the Keys and this needs to be taken into account. I did not pay $250 plus per night and would therefore rate this property on the nightly rate and what would be expected at this rate.

I found the condo to be clean, comfortable, quiet and in a great location. I did not notice any particular dirt on the carpet or anywhere else. The furniture is not new but totally functional, the bed is very comfortable (and I'm picky) and the host is efficient and easy to work with. All basic items for cooking, laundry, and linens are to be found. There are also 2 new flat screen TV's in the unit which are not shown in the pictures. The complex has a large sparkling clean pool and onsite bar/restaurant. It was a peaceful place even though I was there over a holiday weekend. I found a lot of value in this rental based on the price point, and I have stayed in luxury rentals as well. This place was perfect for my needs and is truly represented in the photographs. I would most definitely stay here again and was very satisfied with everything.

Located in the centre of Marathon. This destination is perfect for discovering the beautiful Florida Keys.

One hour's drive from Key West or Key Largo. Marathon is famous for the sportfishing including but not limited to Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi-Mahi and there are numerous places to rent a boat, take a charter or bring your own boat. The resort has a boat ramp and docks (extra charge). Free trailer parking is available.

Numerous things to do include diving, snorkelling kayaking, kite surfing, sailing, golfing, tennis, bicycling, motorcycling or just relaxing...by the resort pool which has a tiki bar and restaurant or at the nearby beautiful sandy Sombero Beach about a mile away.

Wander the docks where you will spot pelicans, various other sea birds, maybe a family of manatees or dolphins!!

Sombrero Beach is a favorite spot for locals and tourists and a short distance from the resort.

One of only 2 Golf Courses in the Florida Keys is located just across the street.
