                  Location

                  Conveniently located for 1 hour day trips to Key West.

                  Marathon is a great location for Kiteboarding at sites such as Curry Hammock State Park and Coco Plum beach. Both are 10 minutes from the house.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About the owner: Hello, my name is Cathy and I'm the proud owner/operator of Catherine's Tropical Paradise. I love to travel, and while in the Keys, I'm usually busy taking my three boys fishing and snorkeling.

                  Why the Owner Chose Marathon:
                  I grew up in the Northeast USA, so having a vacation rental in the Florida Keys is a dream come true. Marathon supports week to week rentals and since most of our guests are families, this works out great. We love Marathon because of the small town friendly neighborhood culture, the great fishing and snorkeling, and relaxing at Sombrero Beach.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  For serious fishing and diving, our house is 30 seconds from the Atlantic Ocean. Our canal is 15ft deep so depending on the time of year, you will find lobster, snapper, and even an occasional Manatee in our canal. Many of our guests enjoy the Hot Tub or swim in the canal after a day on the water. Unlike some 3 bedroom newer multi-story houses, our house fits the budget of young families.
