average rating of 5.0 based on 5 reviews


  • 5 of 5

Extensive research led us to this spectacular villa on Marathon. Let me just start out by saying the pictures do not do this location justice. It is truly a special place. We were a family of five who travelled to the Florida Keys to celebrate our son's graduation, and to have one last big family vacation before our kids head off to college. After booking this property, and renting a 26ft boat that would be parked in the Indigo Reefs private marina, we couldn't help but have a wonderful time during our weeklong stay. There are may Villas in this complex, but we unanimously agreed that #43 has the best views and most convenient boat slip location. It is exceptionally well stocked and decorated and the cleanliness was a 10 out of 10! It comes with covered parking, which is nice for keeping your vehicle nice and cool on those warm, humid days. The complex itself is conveniently located on the Gulf side of Marathon, near the Vaca Bridge. This is especially nice for those with a boat since the Atlantic side of the key can be quickly accessed via the Vaca Cut. Also, fisherman take note; the best Tarpon fishing in the Keys is at 7 Mile Bridge, which is only a 15 minute boat ride from this complex!

Our entire family agreed that this was the best vacation we've ever been on in our lives, and this villa will hold a special place in our collective memories forever!

The best of Marathon

  • 5 of 5

My family visits Marathon on an annual basis and Indigo Reef surpasses everywhere else that we have stayed. The grounds are immaculate, the pool was clean and well furnished and the boat slip was a great added benefit. We were also pleasantly surprised to find covered parking, an ice machine and a "home away from home" feel among the other guests/owners.

Unit 43 may be the best location within Indigo Reef. It sits in the center of the complex and parking for your car or boat are just outside the doors. The sunset view down the canal is also amazing. 43 has been well cared for and it was well equipped for everything that our family of 5 needed during our stay. It was as nice, or nicer, than any of the pictures used to advertise it.

It was a pleasure to rent through John Zito. The rental process was easy and John provided great info before and during our stay. He also made it easy for us to shuffle our schedule and add an extra day.

We hope to return again soon, that extra day just wasn't enough....

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

Paradise is what this Villa is. The owners paid great attention to the smallest detail, as was evident with each room that we entered. We were welcomed with a gift basket that was over the top. The unit was super clean and well appointed. We wanted for nothing. Within close proximity to whatever we needed or wanted: public beach, restaurants, supermarkets, sightseeing, fishing or rent a boat, its all within easy reach. Enjoyed a day at the beach with its breath-taking turquoise colored water. We spent a lot of time relaxing and reading poolside and would have cocktails on the deck watching the marvelous array of colors of each evening's sunset. We highly recommend this Villa and we would rent it again.

Loved It! Great Place and Owners!!!

  • 5 of 5

We would HIGHLY recommend this rental! The owners were great to work with from start to finish! They provided an extremely quick response when we had a question from the time we inquired about the rental to the day we left. They surprised us with a wonderful gift basket upon arrival with many little goodies that wow'd our entire family! Unsolicited, they even helped us out with a list of restaurants along the way because they knew we were travelling at that time of day...and even highlighted the ones that our children might like. They went so above and beyond!

The location was just perfect. We were traveling to the Keys for the first time and Marathon is perfectly situated right in between Key Largo and Key West. The resort itself was incredible! From the moment you enter the beautiful gate and meander along the landscaped drive you feel like you have been transported to a luxurious island get-away. The architecture of the townhomes has so much character and are very well maintained. The unit itself is extremely clean and very tastefully decorated. The pictures are great, but it is even better in person! Our family of 5 (Mom, Dad, 14, 12, & 10) fit very comfortably...we could have even fit Grandma & Grandpa without a problem. The living space of about 1600+ sqft was even further enhanced with a wonderful porch facing the water and porches off of each bedroom. At one point, I was putting away dishes and looked out to see a boat coming in to dock at sunset thinking, WOW...I don't even mind doing dishes when I have a view like this!

A particular and silly highlight for all of us was the Margarita Maker! We were able to have a wonderful beverage each day without breaking the bank of having to order at a restaurant. The kids very much enjoyed the non-coholic treat and my 14 year old became a pro at making them. This was quite a hit!

I felt the pricing for the week was right in line with others available - I did hours of research before booking...and was delighted that this was the right choice! This is an A+ stay that exceeded our expectations and we look forward to going back!
