"Peter and Blanche were absolutely awesome to work with. My wife and I had been fortunate enough to get a few days off for our anniversary at the last minute. Peter and Blanche worked with us to accommodate the short notice in one of their beautiful places. A friend of mine was already in Marathon and was returning a couple of days before our arrival. We usually work a deal where he goes one week and we come down when he leaves and he lets us use his boat. Peter gladly allowed the boat to be dropped off at his place and stored until our arrival two days later.
We stayed at 481 3rd St which is very close to the end of the canal. The location made it a short trip to either the reef or the bay side via Vaca Cut. The home was extremely clean, open, and comfortable. There is a washer and dryer in the home which was very convenient. There are more dishes, utensils, and pots / pans than any other home I have stayed at in the area. The kitchen area is very open with considerable counter space for food preparation.
There are freezers at the bottom of the stairs along with a gas grills to cook up your catch. If you are worried about not catching anything don't....Peter is extremely knowledgeable with the waters and can give you suggestions on where to go, tackle to use, current fishing information. The duplex has two dock areas, one of which is a floating dock which we used. The floating dock allowed for our boat to always be at the same level and made it easy to load and unload. The ice machine was very nice to have and saved having to purchase several bags per day.
Peter and Blanche live in the next building so if there is ever an issue, it will be addressed in no time. The entire time we were there, Peter was constantly working on keeping the location clean and functioning as it should. The man has more energy than should be allowed. If there is anything we needed or even brought up in casual conversation, Peter had a way to help us out and save us time and money.
Peter and Blanche are retired school teachers and truly epitomize the concept of customer care. It was considerably nice to deal with the owners of a property instead of having to deal with a manger of a property as I have dealt with in the past. Both sides of the duplex are owned by Peter and Blanche as well as another home on 4th St. I would highly recommend staying at this home for individuals that like the feel of dealing with honest and friendly folks."

"We have stayed on the island of Key Colony Beach for close to 40 years and this home was without a doubt one of our favorites. We had a wonderful time enjoying the Keys' natural surroundings and after a day fishing and diving, it was great to come back to such a well appointed and clean place to stay. The tropical decor is really nice and gives the whole place a relaxing Bahamas feel. It is definitely one of the more spacious units on 7th street. The owner and property manager were both very easy to work with and very attentive to our needs and request. Thank you Jillian and Holli. We will be back!!"
