La Casita was a very comfortable place to stay during our Spring Break in the Florida Keys. The fact that it was on a canal so close to the ocean was great for fishing and kayaking straight from the back yard. Very easy to find location was and a nice central point to visit many attractions in the area. Quiet location. Comfortable bedrooms with lots of storage. Big kitchen and comfy furniture. Judy was great to deal with and made sure we were comfortable when we arrived.

The property description was accurate. The property was very clean, included a well-stocked kitchen and a good location for many attractions. We had good connectivity for the laptop. Very nice back deck that looked toward the ocean. The neighborhod was quiet. I would recommend this property. It is a good value for your dollar. The owner was easy to contact and able to answer all questions. She called the day following our arrival to verify that all was in good order.

We had a great week at "La Casita" the location was great. The house was clean and well maintained. The owners were great and provided excellent information about the different acitivities, attractions, restaurants and general things to do in the area. We loved the fact that we were able to park the boat right behind the house and the ocean was right there! We also enjoyed doing some fishing from the back of the house and that you are able to clean the fish out there! We would definitely recommend "La Casita" to all our friends.

La Casita- Charming 2 bedroom canal front home
La Casita means home away from home....this house truly suits that title. It was clean and fully equipped with all we needed for our 3 week vacation in Marathon. We enjoyed lounging on the back deck on the canal with a view of the ocean. It was a short drive to Sombrero Beach, close to restaurants and lots of attractions to visit. Being in the middle of the Keys made it easy to drive to Key West or up to Key Largo for the day. The owners were very helpful with any needs we may have had. I highly recommend this rental and look forward to a return visit some day.

Owner response: Thank you! Wonderful to hear such positive commments! At "La Casita"- we want it to feel like your home away from home just like it is for us. We would love to have you visit again!
This was a wonderful experience. I have made online reservations in the past and have been sorely dispointed. The last place we reserved was in Klamath Lake Oregon and we nik named the place the Bates Motel,after the place in the Movie "Psycho". But this experience however was fantastic. The Home is in great condition and every thing a family could need was there and in great condition as well. We rented a boat for a day at a place near by, and there are plenty of places to do that. We spent that day fishing and enjoying the water, but the best fishing was right outside the "La Casita" off the dock. The owners of the property are very friendly and accomodating. It was a pleasure to work with them and wonderful experience for us.

Review of La Casita
Review of La Casita
The description of the rental was completely accurate however I was pleasantly surprised that the house was larger than it seemed in pictures. The property was clean and well maintained. The owner provided great customer service, in fact went above and beyond my expections. I have already recommended this property to friends. The location is minutes away from great fishing and the neighbors were very friendly and helpful. We found several good resturants close by, our favorite was lazy days. The location was an hour away from Key West, so we sent a day there also finding great food and shopping too. My family and I had a great time, and when I got home to unpack I had all clean clothes thanks to the washer and dryer in the house :)

Better Than We Expected!
Better Than We Expected!
We had never been down to the keys before so this was all new to us. We showed up early Friday morning. To our pleasant surprise we were getting a very clean, spacious, full stocked house! We packed tons of food hoping there was a grill outside and there was. Not to mention if we brought a boat we would have had dock space right in front of the patio to the house for easy in and out access. The block was nice, all houses pretty well maintained, neighbors were quite as there were no parties, or crazy town drunks. It is very close to 3 main parks that we went to, also is only about 1.5hrs or less from bottom of keywest (which is a great drive) and about 10 minutes from a nice little beach/city park. Without a boat there is quite a bit to do, they have jet ski rentals close, snorkeling trips, deep sea fishing and day cruises. We were there for 7 days and stayed occupied without a boat.

About the owner: My husband and I have fond recollections of visiting Marathon with our families & friends. We always have a special time here and enjoy driving into the Florida Keys as you leave Miami behind and being surrounded by water on both sides. Growing up my husband spend many family vacations here where he'd go boating, fishing, and spending time with family. Now, that our own family is growing we, too, enjoy going staying in Marathon at "La Casita" and forging more memories of our own. We hope you enjoy your stay at "La Casita"- our little piece of paradise and that it will also be your home away from home.
Why the Owner Chose Marathon:
"La Casita" has great access to the Atlantic Ocean. You are just 2 houses from being out in the ocean; which means you're minutes from great fishing and unbelievable diving spots, among other things. We are Florida native and have always loved the water so were naturally drawn to the Keys. We chose Marathon because it is centrally located in the Florida Keys. Marathon is often called the heart of the Florida Keys, and we like that it is conveniently close to many attractions and restaurants. Our home is a very easy commute from the Marathon Airport and the Key West Airport is not too far. Also, it’s an easy commute from Miami (2 hour drive) and only 1 hour from Key West. In addition, Marathon has some of the best diving spots around, as well as, fishing. Still with so many great activities, Marathon still has a laid-back, friendly atmosphere and island feel that we have come to enjoy so much.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Lounging out on the deck in the evenings is one of our favorite things to do when we're visting. Our lounge chairs are so comfortable and the breeze you feel is just amazing…such peace and tranquility. Just about 5 minutes from our house out on the ocean you will usually find a nice sand bar (depending on the tide) which is clear (no grass) and a great hang out without having to go too far. We have our Vacation Rental License & meet complaince with all the requirements. When choosing to book a vacation rental home in the Florida Keys be sure to ask for a permit number or look for it in the site because it's required. This will ensure that you are dealing with a trusted and reliable owner/manager of a vacation rental home. We are truly blessed to have wonderful neighbors who greet us with smiles and like to make one feel welcome. Sombrero Beach & Park is less than a 10 minute drive and a favorite hangout of ours. The beach is great for families with its calm, clear waters, nice playground, facilities, and picnic shelters. Also, the parking is free and accessible. We are family-owned and take great pride in maintaining our home for not just our enjoyment, but for other families to come and enjoy, as well.
