Marathon house description

Beautifully furnished home directly on the Gulf of Mexico with private sunning beach, private swimming pool, boat ramp, dock and outdoor bathhouse. The house is light and airy with large windows for multiple water views. Located at the end of a quiet residential street, the tropically landscaped property is private and quiet.

The living room area has a large screen TV and a game table adjacent. A large attached second floor porch with ocean view runs the length of the house for outdoor dining and relaxing. The kitchen is large and fully equipped with a granite eating counter. There is a flat screen TV and DVD in the Master bedroom with private bath. There is a large outdoor shower room for use after a day of water activities.

There is 80 feet of boat dockage in protected waters with access to the United State's only living coral reef and some of the best sport fishing in the world. House has it's own splash swimming pool and private beach facing the water. You can kayak, fish or swim or snorkel right off of the dock.

Marathon is in the 'heart of the Keys' - 50 miles from Key Largo and 50 from Key West and our home is within walking distance of restaurants, movie theater, live theater, shopping, bars, etc. We are several miles from the famous Seven Mile Bridge. Museums, snorkeling, kayaking, biking, world famous fishing and diving trips are available nearby. One of the most beautiful beaches in the Keys, Sombrero Beach, is a mile and a half away. Or drive down the road to Bahia Honda State park with beaches, fishing and snorkeling. Just bring your shorts, tee shirts and flip flops and the rest is waiting for a great get-a-way vacation.

                            What a wonderful "home away from home" for my family and parents. The home is warm and cozy and private. My kids LOVED the pool and the benefit of the kayak as well as the gulf to swim and play in. Fishing off the dock and patio was also a blast. The owners were very welcoming to us and even offered to allow our children to come swim in the heated pool that is up the street at their hotel. We loved having coffee on the veranda every morning. We will definately be trying to rent this home for next years spring break.

                            Owner response: We love having guests who really enjoy our yellow house in the Gulf. Sure hope you can return.

                            Thank you so much Harry and Carolyn for sharing your wonderful Marathon home. We spent two weeks - weather was wonderful, house was terrific (even better than pictures). Glad we got to meet you, Harry, as well! Sunsets were amazing...caught lots of fish from our boat and even off the dock! Pelican's were quite happy when they had a bite as well! Location is great - Publix across the street - great Deli also. Could have eaten every day at The Stuffed Pig for breakfast! Sparky's for Happy Hour or dinner....recommended by a local - great choice. Loved Burdines for the view/atmosphere/french fries...and if you want to buy your own to cook - Keys Fisheries seafood market (Lobster Reuben if you want to eat there!). Also enjoyed Sombrero Beach - lovely and very well-kept. Thanks again for a wonderful time!

                            We enjoyed our stay, the house was awesome, very roomy, clean and right on the ocean, great sunsets. We enjoyed exploring the abandoned resort next to the house. Harry is a very nice person to rent from, and fun to talk with. Great experience, will stay here again.

                            Very nice home for one or two couples. On the end of the street, so it is very private. The interior of the house is very nice, with an excellent kitchen and seperate ice maker. Very nice large screen TV and a great porch with a view. It's location provides easy access to Marathon. Would definitely stay there again.

                            My husband and I spent a week here with 2 other couples. We had a wonderful time. The porch was great and relaxing. There are ducks there regularly and one named HOUSE who came for breakfast daily. The house was lovely, clean, well cared and a perfect getaway.

                            We should say the place was terrible, so no one else will discover our awesome vacation spot with gorgeous views of the sunset every night from the deck, living room, dock or the pool! The house was clean, the beds were comfortable and there was plenty of room to spread out. We rented a boat and the dock and water access was easy to navigate. The only problem we could predict would be the stairs if you had someone with difficultly climbing stairs. The stairs are the only way in or out of the house. Other than that, we would highly recommend this location. Thank you a great 20 year marriage anniversary location.

                            This was our second stay at the yellow house with our two grown children,their spouses and their three children. What can I say except we will be going again! It is set up so a family can fully enjoy the Keys wether you are boaters and fishermen or just want to relax on the upper porch and enjoy fantastic sunsets. The owners have thought of everything and it is very clean. There are freezers on the floor level for bait and your catch, a fish cleaning station and a fantastic covered dock, plenty of water depth to moor your boat. If you need anything you can call the front office of the Motel. We met Harry, one of the owners last time and he was very friendly and helpful. We have always rented boats from Jerry's boat rental, abt 2 miles away. There is a business card in the Sea Del front office that will get you 10% off your boat rental there, saved me about $40. The security deposit was returned promptly. Enjoy!!
