Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Gary & Evelyn Haber are the owner managers of Villa Sombrero. Gary is a native Floridian who loves Boating, scuba diving, fishing and most outdoor activities. Gary is a semi-retired real estate manager and Evelyn is a retired school teacher. We have traveled the keys by boat and car all our lives and finally purchased a beautiful home that we enjoy sharing with other families.

Why the Owner Chose Marathon:
We purchased Villa Sombrero due to its superior location. The Villa overlooks Boot Key Harbor with its beautiful sunsets to the West and refreshing breezes from the East that travel down Sisters Creek, a natural waterway that leads to great diving and fishing grounds of the Atlantic. Across Sisters Creek there is a natural preserve and no neighbors. It is private, exclusive and a great destinantion.
