Car: Recommended

The island community of Marathon in the Florida Keys is a tropical getaway for your whole family. It maintains a retro, nautical atmosphere with family-friendly festivals and attractions. Activities include dolphin swims, snorkeling, kayaking, deep sea fishing and boating. Seafood festivals are scheduled throughout the year, and plenty of local restaurants feature fresh catches. Catch your own lobster for dinner during lobster season that runs from August to March. Fishing is ideal off the pristine Sombrero Beach. Leave from our dock with your 3 Person Kayak provided with our property. Visit Crane Point to hike to the preserved home of a 20th century settler family. If you bring your own boat, caretakers Jay, and Sherry will meet you at the boat launch, help you launch the boat, and Captain Jay will ride along to show you to your vacation home by water. Ask about fishing trips offered for this rental.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

Why Marathon:
We were looking for a tropical destination that would provide numerous activities for the whole family. We found it at Whimsical Seas. With such busy lives this beach home allows our family to spend quality time together swimming, fishing, grilling by the pool, boating and kayaking in some of the most beautiful water in the world.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have one of the largest yards in the area. Its completely private and fenced. The kids and pets have room to run and plenty of space to park your boat, cars and RV. And the pets love the grassy areas.
