There is a patio overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, with a barbeque grill, and plenty of seating for a crowd. Relax in the hot tub as you watch the boats sail by wondering which islands they are destined for.

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' Our dream is to make it a full time home someday.

Mike or Patti Rhine purchased this house in 2013

Why Mike or Patti Rhine chose Central Florida Keys

We just purchased this delightful 2nd home in August of 2013. We looked for a home that was not just private but with the perfect ocean front view as well. Simple yet very comfortable, Hide Away Cove 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 markets or restaurants. 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 in the middle of Marathon Key so you can be at any local destination in just minutes. The perfect location, and the perfect house for the Rhine family!

Our family truly enjoyed our stay with a gorgeous ocean front area view and super cute beach house.

We had beautiful weather and enjoyed the house, the beach and Marathon. It would have been helpful to have a local contact; we did meet a very pleasant man just as we were leaving on the last day. If we return to the Keys area, we would surely try to secure this home for our stay.

Awesome! We loved our stay in your home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in your home. It had a great location that was super close to all the amenities of Marathon but also felt secluded. We would definitely recommend this location to our family and friends. Actually, we are considering making this an yearly tradition for our family of 6. Thanks!!!

The house was great, plenty of space inside. Outside was quiet and peaceful, the dock kept my son busy fishing for hours. Located close to restaurants, beaches and lots to do. We had a great time

Thanksgiving week

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son and I had the pleasure of staying at this lovely property while attending a wedding in the Keys.

We left behind the snow in Toronto and arrived to a tropical paradise.

It was a perfect respite for relaxing after all the wedding week festivities. The location is amazing and very private.

Everything you could ask for and more. Definitely recommended.!

What a perfect place for our vacation! The online description and pictures gave us a sense of what we could expect, and we were definitely not disappointed. Clean & comfy rooms, great set-up and an absolutely spectacular view of the ocean ... and perfect location. We stayed in Marathon last year, so had to revisit some of our favorite eateries - Keys Fisheries, Island Fish Company & Castaways where they prepared our earlier catch from the Marathon Lady party boat trips - so delicious! We even had several meals from our catch to freeze and take home with us. We also tried Key Colony Inn where we probably received the largest portions - almost too much to eat; and went for Italian one night at Franks Grill - both very good. We were not disappointed with any meal, and decided the only food from home we would miss if we moved to The Keys would be pizza and cheese steaks. The weather was perfect - mostly sunny every day, 80 to 84 and mid to upper 70's each night. Spent one day at beautiful Sombrero Beach, and another day at the Dolphin Research Center. We spent a day there last year, and just had to go back - they're so sweet & intelligent. We also spent a day in Key West since we didn't get a chance to go there last year. It was nice but we like the Marathon area much better. Also checked out Bahia Honda State Park which is nice, but if you're looking for a beach I think Sombrero is a better choice. We also did a kayak trip along the coast and through the mangroves which was a lot of fun. We had hoped to go snorkeling again this year but ran out of time. Just a great trip all-around! So sad to leave :(

Many thanks to Mike & Pattie for being so gracious and sharing their beautiful home with us - we definitely hope to return next year!
