Marathon house description
Home sits on a large (200’+), quiet lagoon on the Gulf side. We have 2 MASTER BEDROOMS, one upstairs and one poolside, as well as a guest bedroom upstairs. The 42” High Def TV comes with 150+ Satellite channels and FREE HBO. The two wrap around decks provide excellent seating for watching the amazing sunsets in the Keys. BBQ on the large gas grill, then dine alfresco on the comfy patio furniture, while possibly seeing rays jump, tarpon roll or Manatees meandering in the lagoon.
The Pleasure Island Pool is 39’x16’, with built in barstools, a Waterfall and a very large Spa with mood lighting. There are plenty of comfy chairs and lounges to relax and get the tan you crave.
The 60’ dock has water and power, as well as a fish cleaning station. A bait freezer is provided for your convenience. An outdoor shower will cool you off after a hot day of fishing. Our resident fish, commonly seen from the dock, include Tarpon and Mangrove Snapper.

We didn't realize that the bedroom off the pool was not connected by an interior staircase. Otherwise, the listing was accurate. The owner met us and gave a walk-thru and answered all are questions on the procedures for what she wanted us to do. She also told us about activities around the area and places to eat.

Cindy was very very accomadating as we wanted to come in on a Friday. Great place, with great views. We had a great time catching fish from the dock. We also saw a huge turtle. Great vacation. Thanks again.

Fantastic property and location!
Fantastic property and location!
We stayed at this property for the second time, the first time was last summer, and once again enjoyed the entire experience. The house is beautiful and has every amenity you could want; the pool has a waterfall and lighting system that is very special. The location is quiet but convenient to everything, both by car and by boat. When visiting marathon, be sure to eat at Frank's.

We had a wonderful time staying at this home for our week vacation. The house had plenty of room and was beautifully decorated. We caught live bait off our dock for our fishing trip. Highly recommend this home for you next vacation

Family Friendly Home
Family Friendly Home
Having been to the Keys many times, this was our first family vacation together with our recently added daughters-in-law. The weather was the worst we've ever seen, the entire week. However, this house, which was more of a home, couldn't have been better for us. Since we couldn't be out in the boat so much, the house suited us nicely. Plenty of room to spread out, plenty of space to get away and read, room to play games and puzzles (which we brought). Breakfast on the balcony, grilling at night. The kitchen was a dream and the pantry nicely stocked. A grocery near by. As the parents, we took the ground floor suite which we dubbed the in-laws suite which gave us lots of room and also stored the boating gear. The owners were local and helpful. The pool area was very nice and the dock clean and in good condition with a fish cleaning table. Since we had to stay closer to home than hoped for, this was a great house to be in since we spent so much time there. The location for boating was good with a large lagoon the house sits on, the gulf a 3 minute idle away and the Vaca cut 10 minutes away. The lagoon was large, clean and active with kayakers and a few jet skiers. A deep freezer was provided on the ground floor for bait and ice supplies. Having a vacation rental ourselves, we are are kind of picky and this house suited us nicely. We would recommend this rental.

A wonderful home in a perfect location. Our party was 4 adults and two teenagers. We had great accomodations for all, and a very good dock for our 22 foot boat. The kitchen is modern, clean and well equiped. The bathrooms are modern well set up. The furniture is exceptionally comfortable for a rental. The location is great for boating, short trip to the Vaca cut of the 7 mile bridge to go ocean side. Ocean side there is protected water fairly close which is good for wakeboarding and water skiing. Short drives for groceries, restaurants and entertainment. We have rented 4 different homes in the keys, this one is the best. We will be booking again.

We had 7 people in our party from ages 14 to 77. The pictures of this home were right on! Loved the pool!!!! This home had the perfect set up for all of us to have our own space and yet had a large enough gathering place to fit us all comfortably. The main house (which was the 2nd and 3rd floors) where the two bedrooms were located, were totally updated and beautifully decorated. The only complaint we had was the third bedroom (located poolside). The musty smell was a bit overpowering. We did contact the owner and she did come out to the house right away. Unfortunately, there was nothing that could be done about it at that time. The location of this property was perfect for experiencing the Keys. We were right in the middle of everything. We took two snorkel excursions: one in Key West and one in Key Large (John Pennekamp). John Pennekamp was beautiful and we saw many fish. I was a little disappointed in the Key West Reef - not many fish at all. I would recommend going to the Turtle Hospital in Marathon. As far as places to eat: I would recommend the Key Colony Inn, The Island Fish Co, & Tranquility Bay's Butterfly Café. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family ONLY if the water/must smell in the 3rd bedroom would be taken care of.

Owner response: As concerned owners, we were surprised with the lower bedroom issue. We didn't want to bother our guests vacation, but as soon as they departed on Saturday, we found the source of water intrusion. The areas were treated and sealed against further problems. This has always been my favorite bedroom, where we would have our friends stay when they visited. It is now fully taken care of!
Great Home and Great Value!

The reviewers of this home have all described this home very accurately. It is beautifully decorated, both inside and out, and goes well beyond in providing the necessary rental home essentials. In particular the huge kitchen had a wide assortment of items to make cooking fun. The owners, Cindy and Tom, are very “hands-on” local owners, met us upon arrival and responded within 30 minutes to the only two small issues we had. They were also very helpful in introducing us to Marathon (our first trip). Nice pool and hot tub…the docking facilities were first rate. Would recommend this home without hesitation to anyone wanting a nice clean and well-kept home on the water at a very reasonable price.

AMAZING Pool and Visit from Manatees
AMAZING Pool and Visit from Manatees
We spent a wonderful week at this home. The weather was beautiful! We had three ladies and one gentleman. He took the master in the lower level which was perfect for him. He could get up early for his fishing and not disturb anyone! The kitchen and living room are spacious and a great place to hang out after a long day on the water and in the sun! The bedrooms and number of bathrooms were a huge plus so nobody was on top of each other. Rafts for the pool were provided so floating around all day in the sun while the waterfallls hit the pool was very relaxing! We had a couple of issues with the hot tub (power needed to be reset) but Cindy and Tom were right on top of it! They were great to work with! When we arrived, they met us at the marina where we rented our boat and Tom got in the boat with our fisherman and made sure he was able to find the house for the first time. One very special tip, the neighbors LOVE music and so do we so we made sure to turn it up loud enough for them to sing right along with us. Of course this was during the day and being the responsible adults we are, we were quiet when we needed to be but during the day we let it rip, and they absolutely loved it.....especially around dinner time (5 or 6) We thoroughly enjoyed our visits from our Iguana friends and the cherry on top of the whole trip was a visit from three Manatees. Tip, they LOVE the fresh water from the hose! Great dinners at Sunset Grill, Castaways and Park Grill. A fantastic time was had by all! Thank you Tom and Cindy for sharing your lovely home with us!

Everything was as it was supposed to be, granted there was a learning curve with some of the modern appliances,lol, and the fridge didn't seem to get as cold as we would have liked, but all minor things that should not distract anyone from staying at this great property! Comfortable atmosphere, great southern exposure, good access to the water from the dock, and a nice central location to the other Keys in either direction. Would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a wonderful getaway. Thanks Cindy and Tom!
