Marathon condo description
March 27, 2014 update: We are scheduled to leave our beautiful Keys home on April 2. April 3 the tile guys roll in and the whole place gets new tile. The bathroom fixtures will be replaced and the place will have a whole new look! The internet connection speeds are right on spec. We have purchased a new set of nonstick pans which are working our very well. A new coffee make, new drying rack on the patio and a wall organizer in the closet are all nice little touches. Amazing music almost everyday down at the Dockside Tropical Cafe with Eric Stone, the new owner, his band and some excellent talent coming through town. Marathon is vibrant and growing with several new projects underway. We can't possibly sample all of the approximately 72 restaurants here but we are trying! Come on down! Tim and Glenda
January 11, 2014 update: During our visit in early December we upgraded the bedding with 600 thread count sheets, king pillows and comforter. On the patio we added some very cool recycled mats, new chairs and a beautiful piece of Haitian oil drum art. Comcast cable services were upgraded and we shopped for a new recliner but were unable to find a small one that we liked. The best news is the opening of the Dockside Tropical Cafe just down the docks from Sombrero. Musician Eric Stone has done a wonderful job of redecorating this great waterfront restaurant within crawling distance of the condo. He will be bringing in regional and national acts so be sure to head over there when you arrive and check the schedule. He has a great selection of rum and great food as well.
Recently acquired, our unit is totally updated with new King bed, new leather queen sleeper sofa. 2 flat screen, internet connected TVs, dedicated hi speed internet ( 25 Mbps down/4 Mbps up ).

Very comfortable condo Unit
Very comfortable condo Unit
This property was easy to book and the photos are very accurate. It was the comfortable bed and pillows, the Egyptian cotton sheets, the fluffy towels and toiletries, the flat screen Tv's and the beautiful sunsets that made this a great place to stay during the Christmas holiday. The resort itself is dated and not in the best of shape. I give the condo 5 stars, but the resort 3 stars. The Tike bar was only open one night- Saturday while we were there. Sombrero Beach is very convenient and a nice area to spend the day. There is a small fishing pier there also. A lovely drive over the 7 mile bridge takes you to Bahia Honda State Park, which is also very nice. We absolutely loved the Lobster Reuben at Keys Fisheries at 35th Street. Be prepared to be very hungry or split an order, as it is enormous.

Manager response: Thanks very much for your comments Patricia. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay. The resort is supposedly in transition and we are hoping that the new owners will make significant upgrades. I hope that you found the Dockside Tropical Cafe, the new restaurant just down the street from Sombrero. We were there several times in early December and it was great. The new owner, Eric Stone, is a musician with his own band as well as national connections which he intends to use to bring in a wide range of performers. We are excited to have this new waterfront locale just steps from the condo. Happy New Year! Tim

About: I am an international businessman based in Michigan. My company represents a British Electronics firm in all of the Americas, Spain and Portugal. I have two daughters and a wonderful girlfriend. I speak fluent Spanish and I am very excited to have a new base in the keys from which to work and travel.
Unit 429 is one of the best units in the Sombrero complex. The patio off of the bedroom faces West for sunsets and is cool and comfy until midday, protected from the rising sun. The views from the top floor include Boot Key Harbor, the golf course across the road and the pool area. One big point that drove our selection of this unit is that the bedroom faces away from the pool and Tiki bar. This allows for a great night's sleep even if the music and the party at the Tiki bar are in full swing.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Dedicated high speed internet, 30 MB download and 5 MB upload, full Comcast cable service on two internet connected flat screen TVs. All new bedding. Quiet. Well equipped kitchen.
