Once again Just the Best time
"Thanks Kate and Mike for sharing your beautiful home in Marathon with us again.
We had a fabulous time. The area has really changed (for the good) since our last visit 4 yrs ago.
This time we were just adults, and it was so much more relaxing than we even remembered. Who would ever get bored of that view? We were happily surprised to see that the house was still as lovely and comfortable as the last time and loved the painting you did in the one batheroom that to us were new.
You are quite an artist! Larry came by to check on us and helped us untangle our fishing rod and gave us some great fishing tips. We did the aquarium attraction and found it fun but very expensive. Also expensive was our night out on Little Palm Island but I am not complaining about it as it was worth every cent. A memory for a lifetime.
Hope it isn’t another 4 years until we get back again but if it is I know the memories of this week will certainly last.

"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."

"My wife and I stayed here the week of March 14 to the 21st and had a wonderful time. The unit was very nice and clean. We had no problems and everything worked properly. Check in and check out was very smooth. The semi private pool was great. We would look into this unit again the next we returned to the Keys."
