  • 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."

  • Happiness Is. . .PERFECTION

    "Our family could not possibly have been more happy with our stay at "Happiness Is. . ." There are 5 of us with our children being 16, 13 and 10 and every one of us had a fabulous vacation with all of our children agreeing that the condo was the best place we had ever stayed! The owners were so easy to work with and the condo itself was spacious, clean and well-stocked with everything we needed. Though, to be honest, we didn't spend a whole lot of time inside! The Gulfpointe community was very quiet, well-kept, and easy to find. The pool was very convenient as was the boat dock. We did not have a boat but we spent A LOT of time on the dock fishing, swimming, snorkeling and chatting with paddleboarders who went by. The dock is constructed of composite decking which was GREAT because we didn't have to worry about splinters! We loved all the big sliding glass doors--the views were fabulous! The location is fantastic--there are tons of dining and fun options within walking, bike riding or very short driving distance. Key West is close enough to enjoy for a day trip but there is tons to do right in Marathon. We ate at Keys Fisheries, Burdines, Island Fish Co., Cracked Conch Cafe and they were all fantastic! We also visited Curry Hammock State Park to kayak, Sombrero Beach for swimming/snorkeling, 7-mile bridge for the sunset, Sweet Savannah's for ice cream, Big Pine Key to see the Key deer, went on a half day fishing trip on the Marathon Lady, spent a day at the Dolphin Research Center, and Bahia Honda State Park (definitely the best beach that we've seen in the keys with the added bonus of a spectacular place to watch the sunset!). It really was a perfect trip and we hope to come back some time--even if we can't, we have already recommended "Happiness Is. . ." to several friends who are planning to visit the Keys. The ONLY thing I wish the condo had was a "Guest Book." We've stayed at other places that had a Guest Book and not only is it fun to see where other people are from but it's nice to have recommendations for food/fun from other visitors."

  • 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."

  • wonderful Thanksgiving

    "Our first time renting a house abroad was a great challenge, moreover as we all were coming from different parts of the world. We wanted to spend Thanksgiving with our sons and daughter, daughters in law and grandchildren. Ages ranging from 4 months to 62 years had to be accomodated perfectly well The house was superb, it just had all we wanted, We spent a wonderful week at this beautiful house and garden. Enrique and Karen"
