Owner info

About the owner: Frank & I have enjoyed our piece of paradise over the years, first while raising our 3 boys, and now with their families --which include 8 grandchildren. While we have lived in a wooded neighborhood in Virginia all these years, our hearts are at Media Luna with unlimited water views.

Why the Owner Chose Marathon:
We fell in love with our half-moon shaped home while house shopping on a cloudy day while our sons golfed at the par 3 nearby golf course. Being in a quiet neighborhood with proximity to grocery stores and shopping sealed our decision. The sandy beach we could bike or drive to also did not hurt.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Nothing beats the view when walking thru the front door, unlimited horizon views thru 24 feet of 8 foot high sliding glass doors. The 925 s.f. screened porch with a lobster trap bar that had a wood top from a salvaged ship sold us on Media Luna. We also loved the circular driveway which provided covered parking to keep our car shaded from the fabulous Keys sun.
