Why Sherry Broadway chose Marathon
We were looking for a tropical destination that would provide numerous activities for the whole family. We found it at Whimsical Seas. With such busy lives this beach home allows our family to spend quality time together swimming, fishing, grilling by the pool, boating and kayaking in some of the most beautiful water in the world.
What makes this House unique
We have one of the largest yards in the area. Its completely private and fenced. The kids and pets have room to run and plenty of space to park your boat, cars and RV. And the pets love the grassy areas.

Outside area great! Inside not so much!
First, Sherry who manages the property is 5 star! House was very clean and staged upon arrival to make you feel very welcome. She handles any and all issues & questions with immediate responses! She is great! Tons of towels, bath soap, sunscreen, etc. ...very nice little touches! She makes a real effort to do her part to have niceties available for her guests! The outdoors are terrific!! ...loved the pool, the fenced in yard, the outdoor deck and close proximity to Sombrero Beach.
Our issue was with the house itself. We only had 4 adults and it was uncomfortable with all adults in the house together. The living room has only one very large sofa. The couch was comfortable but with a tear in the slip cover & shabby. There was no way to sit together except to all “line up” on the couch or for someone to sit all evening on uncomfortable “kitchen” chairs. Kitchen small as is eating area but ok for vacation cooking & dining as there was also a great outdoor gas grill that we used frequently. Kuerig available was great. Great first floor bathroom...shower, soaker tub! Very nice!
Most disappointing was the master bedroom with a massive king bed that was blocked on three sides! Literally having to crawl across a king mattress every night and morning to get in & out of bed if you are the person sleeping on the far side of the bed! The bed is against a sliding glass door with very sheer curtains...so privacy was an issue while crawling into & out of the bed! Sheer curtains also brought sun into the room very early and the neighbors’ outdoor lights shining in at night. The only way to make or change the bed was to make the side in the room, then go out the front door to the deck, around to the side deck, open the sliding door and stand in the doorway to make the other side! Upstairs bedrooms very nice but the bathroom upstairs had a non functioning toilet so there was not a bedroom that offered a comfortable bedroom, with privacy and a totally functional bathroom. For a total rental cost of $10,500 for 27 days (after we are refunded the $1500 cleaning protection) we were pretty disappointed. Appropriately sized new bedroom furniture, living room furniture and a new upstairs toilet would make the expense for the house equal the value received. So in spite of the wonderful outdoor amenities and the exceptional service by Sherry we booked a different house for next year - very comparable in cost with similar outdoor amenities and a far better furnished home!
Thanks for choosing to stay with us this past season Cheryl, you are correct, this property is great, all fenced in, with a completely separate fenced in pool. 1/2 acre, so nobody is right on top of you, very difficult to find in Marathon. 50 Ft dock, that you can see right out your front door, on a deep water canal, and literally right around the corner of Sombrero Beach, a very short walk. We have 2 bikes, and 2 kayaks, a 2 person, and a one person. As for the inside we are about to go through a complete transformation. All new living room furniture is on order, as well as all new king bedroom suite, expecting delivery in May. Look for new photos then. We hope you enjoy your return trip to The Keys.
Really nice house and location.
The house has everything you need including bikes and kayaks . You can walk to the beach, stores and a couple restaurants. The fenced in yard with a gate is a bonus. The pool, house and yard were very clean. Sherry is easy and pleasant to deal with.
Very clean, great location..
The house was very clean, great location, lots of parking space. Sherry was very responsive and considerate. Only two complaints; 1) the bedroom furniture was too big for the room and it was difficult to move through the room, 2) the trees at the dock shed all over our boat..
Our overall experience was wonderful, very happy with our stay..
Very Nice House in close proximity to Beach, shops, Grocery Stores, (Manager was awsome)
Manager and her husband where awesome, friendly, helpful with things to do etc. The house is Very nice, with good swimming pool and boat dockage. Its a short walk to the beach (6 or 7 houses down the road). Plenty of room under cabin if you want to stay our of the sun and good off street parking. Highly recommend. Texas
Loved the pool and proximity to everything
We were hoping to do a lot of things in the Keys and this property was centrally located to doing it all. Minutes from Bahia Honda State Park, an hour from Key West and 45 minutes to Theatre of the Sea. We enjoyed the pool and fishing from the dock.
Stayed for a week during our kids break, had a great time fishing g off the back of the dock each morning.... saw a manatee by the dock. It is a great place for the family, lots of things to do and is a great home
