                  The Marathon provides the best of the Keys. You are close enough to Key West for day trip, you have the best fishing of any Key due to the currents flows, and the diving is second to none. We are also close to Pennekamp if a day trip there is desired.

                  The home is absolutely perfect for family reunions and couples looking to just get away.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: Our entire family is close and we enjoy spending our holidays together. This house provides us with plenty of space and is perfect big dinners and great conversation. And if you like the sun and to fish - we also have a home in Key Largo which is spectacular VRBO.com/390007 and a home in Montana VRBO.com/304457.

                  Why the Owner Chose Marathon:
                  We live in Florida and fell in love with the Keys. We have 2 young children and very large family and this home is large enough for all of us - even providing a few places to hide. It's just perfect. We hope you'll love it just as much as we do.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
                  Whether skiing, fishing or just reading a book - our home provides the warm island relaxing feel needed when on vacation. You'll never want leave. It's just GREAT.
