About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Come relax in our Marathon Oasis...This calm, comfortable & UPDATED home is a 2/2 with a great open room floor plan. If tranquility is what you are looking for...look no further. The home exudes serenity. You can enjoy your morning coffee out back, take a dip in the pool or just lounge around and read a book or do nothing at all. You can even fish off the dock or bring your boat too.

For the avid fisherman/woman our home is located on a deep water canal only 5 houses in from the Open Atlantic with direct Ocean access; no canals to navigate. The 75' concrete dock comes with a fish cleaning station with running water and in the garage you'll find a Bait Freezer & Rod Holders as well. Snorkeling, Kayaking, Paddle Boarding or Shallow Water Fishing is accessible right at the end of the canal. If diving is your thing you'll find ample storage in the garage for all your equipment and plenty of dive sites to explore.

Amenities: Inside you will be pleased to find a European Kitchen with White Quartz counter top, Gaggenau appliances, Sub-Zero Refrigerator, Laundry Room with front load washer & dryer, iron & ironing board. The Family room is equipped with a 52'' flat panel TV, DVD player and Bose wave radio. The Master has a King with memory foam mattress, 42'' flat panel TV and private bath. The 2nd bedroom has a Queen with a 12" Cool Gel memory foam mattress (new 7/2015) and a Full XL Sealy Posturpedic memory foam mattress and a TV with DVD player and game console.

The house has central A/C, ceiling fans throughout, dishwasher and the kitchen is fully equipped including pots & pans (new 4/2015), toaster, coffee maker, espresso machine, deep fryer, plates, silverware, etc. It also has a water softener for all interior faucets and an under the counter drinking water purifier. Linen closet includes all bedding sheets (400-600 thread count), bath towels (Egyptian or Turkish cotton) & pool towels.

Extras: The garage storage area includes (as previously noted) a Bait Freezer and Rod Holders and enough room left over for all your gear...bring your bicycles, dive tanks, coolers etc... The Pool has a heater (available ONLY upon request) and fiber optic lighting for your evening swimming pleasure.

A local land line is included as well as free Wireless Internet and expanded cable.

About The Owner

We love warm tropical places and that is why we purchased this home in PARADISE!

The Owner purchased this house in 2014

Why The Owner chose Marathon

It was love at first sight! We rented this home for our vacation and loved it so much we jumped at the opportunity to own and continue sharing as a rental that others can enjoy as well. We purchased this home with the intention of retiring here and we know once you step inside you'll feel the same way too. Easy access to the Marathon Airport, off the main highway yet close to supermarkets and 24-hour store (walking distance).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mrs Reyes. The property was fantastic and the water access was great. Our stay was too short of course but would recommend to our responsible friends renting your property. I would hate to see anything disrupted to your property. It was perfect. Thank you.

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! We stayed at this property 12/31/16-1/7/17 and had a wonderful experience. Everything was great -- location, pool, boat dock, view, comfortable beds, kitchen had everything, perfect size for our family of four. Rode our bikes, rented a boat for three days, brought our kayaks. Plenty to do. Loved having the Property Manager, Pat, next door -- she was great. I would definitely stay again!

The property was just as listed....actually it was a little better than I expected!!

  • 5 of 5

This house couldn't have been any more centrally located to everything. The inside was pristine and had every available option one could want. There was absolutely nothing lacking and we would be glad to come back. We have been on vacation in the Keys 4 times now and this is the only property we would actually make a return to.

Great property and location. Pat and Susan were great to work with. Pat was very helpful as a next door neighbor answering general questions about the area. The house is a perfect size for our family of five. Great dock space and location. Very relaxing and peaceful. Will definitely consider coming back!

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for nine nights, and it was painful to say goodbye. For the boater, this place is fantastic! Plenty of dock space, and dock pillars have new bumpers. You are only a couple of houses away from open water. The backyard was so inviting, I almost spent an entire night on one of the recliners. Pool is a perfect size, and is exactly what you need after spending all day out on the boat. The interior was all remodeled, and very comfortable. It is a ritual every year that we spend a week in Marathon and bring our boat. I can honestly say this will be our home away from home... Thank you again Susan for all your hospitality.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a whole month at this beautiful home. We made so many fun memories and had such a good time. The house is incredibly clean and well kept. Everything is very updated. The location is perfect for anything you want to do in the Keys. Back yard is awesome. Pool perfect size. The canal is nice and quiet, perfect for relaxing. The house is equipped with everything you could possibly need. Beds are comfy. We had no problem feeling at home here. House is very user friendly. Owner is very quick to respond and was great to work with.

We will 100% be back.
