                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2001

                      About the owner: We are a retired couple with six children; five boys and a girl. Now that the children are older we do not need as much room, and now spend the winter in our small cottage only a block away from the main house.

                      Why the Owner Chose Marathon:
                      For years we vacationed in the Islands, and Belize. As time progressed we decided we wanted something in the US. We decided on the Keys because it was similar to the island life style in many ways with the added advantage of being in the US. Only after living there did we realize that the fishing was superior to both the islands and Belize ! It was also a comfort to know that excellent medical care was less than five miles away.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      Our neighborhood is wonderful in that it provides access to world class snapper fishing around the Seven Mile Bridge without ever having to go out into the ocean. This means fishing in small boats even on very rough days . We are also less than one mile from arguably the nicest beach in the Florida Keys { Sombrero Beach }.
