  • Marathin is in the middle of it all

    "Rating Details: I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was more than happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Marathon was a nice location. Close to convenient shops and restaurants. Being inthe Middle of the keys allowed us to visit Key West and Islamorada as day trips. Weather in December was good: 80 degrees a bit overcast. only dislicke was the actually neighborhood of this rental. This is the nicest house on the street, mostly trailer homes and direct neighbor house not much of a view to see.Master bedroom balcony looked over canal and Overhead Highway too."

  • Sunset Fishing Paradise

    "This was our second stay at this home and will not be our last. My husband and I and our 2 boys, 22 & 25 and a family friend, 21, went diving and fishing an awesome wreck directly out the gulf from this home. Six days of fishing and brought tons of it home. Sunsets are spectacular and the kayaks on the premises provided hours of exploring. This home is very clean and very comfortable. The kitchen provides everything that you will need and the pool is so very relaxing as it overlooks the water. We took pics of the manatee that visits often and hand fed it kale right from the dock...friendly fella. Quiet neighborhood to take a jog or walk the pets. Sunset Grill is a must..excellent food and drinks, atmosphere fun!! We absolutely love this home and we have stayed at many homes over the last 20 years in the Keys, much larger also and this is by far a favorite. Close to Vaca Cut and Capt. Hooks ship store to gas up boat. Real estate office is very friendly and will not be will be in paradise."

  • The best vacation rental we had in 10 years of renting in the middle keys.

    "We live in Florida & we have been renting vacation homes in the middle keys for last 10 years. My wife and I are work in real estate so we can appreciate a super nice rental when we see one. This"Million dollar baby"became number one on our list. When we arrived in this home we were excited to open the door and walk in. It felt like a beginning of a cinemascope wide screen movie - We opened the door and here was the amazing wide water ocean panorama in front of you. It takes your breath away and you want to stay forever. All the great comments you read in the other reviews are right on the money, so I will not keep repeating those but I will mention only what impressed me. I have done a lot of research for oceanfront rentals in Marathon and this one outperforms all the others . Booking this place with the owners is a breeze, very professional and all the questions you may have get answered promptly. The place is spotless and totally organized upon arrival and you feel that you are visiting a friend's home and not a rental. Furnishings are top class and again we felt instantly like at home. I wish all the rentals would be this way. But that is what separates this one from the rest. Obviously the owners are top notch pros doing their job as the hosts of their rental house. One of the best features for us was the ocean view from the master bedroom on the second floor. It felt again like a wide screen Imax movie - lying in the king size bed and waking up to an unobstructed ocean view. It does not get any better than that. My wife was not rushing to get up from the bed every day. One thing I do want to agree with the other people - one week is not enough. We like to go to the keys after the Labor day because it is a wonderful quiet time of the year. But lately we have noticed that more people discovered the same. So book early not to miss the chance of your life. I am a diehard saltwater fisherman. This house is perfect for fishing- deep water channel in front of you and bonefish flats beyond- everything swims by you. There is a dock light at the edge of the sea wall and when you turn it on at night all kinds of life shows up. I was able to cast net for some live bait at night and let them out to see what you can get. Here is the tally- 30 inch snook, 5lbs flounder, 2 nice smaller groupers , 4 nice size mangrove snappers , 4 small sharks and the best, at the end, a 5 foot tarpon. Who needs the boat ? Best of all we enjoyed our time and had great fun."

  • Great place

    "Everything available you could want. The unit was spacious and well laid out. We were able to keep all sliding doors open day and night, a nice breeze constantly blowing tthrough the screen porch. Large screen tv with premium channels. Bed was awesome, really comfortable. Nice kitchen, bath, and shower. We brought our own kayaks and used them everyday but he also supplies kayaks, bikes, beach chairs you name it it was there. TERRIFIC place. We will be back. Thanks!
