  • Everything you would expect...and more.

    "The house is exactly the way the photos decpict. It is beautifully decorated. The bedrooms and bathrooms were comfortable and spacious and the kitchen is well-appointed. The best part is the privacy and beauty of the property. My favorite part of staying at Mar Azul was waking up every morning from the master bedroom and looking at the ocean view. If you are looking to get away, this is the perfect vacation home. Lisa and her staff was a joy to work with. She answered every call and email. One night after a storm, some of the trimwork on the patio was damaged. I called Lisa to notify her and she had someone come out right away to clean it up. My husband and I are already trying to plan our next stay at Mar Azul for next year. Marathon is a convenient place to stay in the keys if you are looking to "key hop" to the other islands."

  • Ocean view getaway, relax swim, eat,enjoy the good life.

    "Our vacation of one week was marvelous at the condo. It was very peaceful and not crowded. The people we did meet there were so nice. The pool is a real plus. Think we used it every day at 4:00pm when it was totally shaded. You could float and watch the ocean without getting sunburned. During the day we took advantage of the wonderful things available in the area. The dolphin research center and the turtle hospital were great. We adopted a turtle named April. Captain Hooks was a great place to charter a fishing boat. We had a super day and caught Mahi Mahi . After he filleted the fish we had like about 20 pounds of fish to take home! Nothing like really fresh fish for supper. Spirit snorkeling was great just before the seven mile bridge. Went out to Sombrero reef. The only activity not found around Marathon was parasailing . For this we drove to Key West. The condo was very comfortable and worked well size wise for our family. Everything we needed was there and nice quality furnishing. Some night we cooked but our favorite restaurant was the one close by on the gulf called the Island Fish Company. The view from the porch was amazing . Felt like we were on a cruise. I even got up to see the sun rise! If I hear of anyone wanting to go to the Keys I will tell them about coco plum."

  • Worth the LONG Drive!

    "After driving over 1000 miles.... We were so pleased to see our home away from home! Pulling into the driveway with an immediate view of the Gulf was priceless! The kids, even our teenage boys, took notice and quickly jumped from the truck to explore. The outdoor room was nice, allowing them their "own space" in the evenings as they fished late into the nights... hoping to catch the big one! The interior was spacious, comfortable and offered beautiful views. During our visit, we were visited by the landscaper, maintenance and another man who said he was taking out the recycle. I would have rather their presents been less "noticeable" not knowing who's who made me a little uncomfortable with our stuff strewn about. Everyone was very friendly, however. I would highly recommend this beautiful home.... It would make an excellent couples retreat along with a great family vacation.... ours was filled with great memories!"

    "This home fit our family perfect! It was clean and well stocked just as described. Actually the sliding glass doors were so clean the kids ran face first in them a couple of times, it was pretty funny. With 2 adults and 6 kids ages ranging from 6 to 14 their was always things to do weather it was swimming in the pool, relaxing in the hot tub, walking to the beach, or fishing off the dock. Our whole family spent hours fishing right off the dock and caught all kinds of fish, including a nurse shark. Every morning we would go and sit on the dock and drink our coffee and watch the Iguanas come out of the trees on the otherside of the canal and then swim over to our side. Probably one of the best things the kids got to experience was almost every day when the tide came in a Manatee would swim down the canal. So we sprayed the hose in the canal a little and the Manatee came right over to the dock put it's head out of the water and we got to pet it. That was pretty amazing. So if you stay at this property and see a Manatee , spray the hose in the water a little and maybe you get a chance to pet a Manatee. We also visited Bahia Honda State Park it has a really nice beach and we did lots of snorkling there. We also visited Key West where we ate at the best restaurant called Hogfish Bar and Grill, the price are reasonable and the portions are well worth your money and excellent food ( Highly recommended!). We also visited The Turtle Hospital very information and the kids loved it. The owner of this property is great he provides you with everything you need to know while visiting. The other great thing about this property is all of the landscaping is wonderful because it makes it so much more private. I highly recommend this property it was well worth it and the owner was super quick with getting our security deposit back. Thank you! again Neil for sharing your home with our family we made lots of good memories on this vacation."
