  • 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!"

  • Great stay in the Keys

    "We stayed for a week and couldn't have been more pleased. The unit is beautifully decorated, well equipped and in great condition. We enjoyed having the boat conveniently located across the canal from the condo. The complex is located less than a mile from Vaca cut providing easy access to either he ocean or Florida Bay. The property is very well maintained and the huge pool felt great after a long day on the boat. I definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing time in Marathon"

  • 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."

  • A great time for all

    "Kate Just to say we have had an amazing stay at your. Beautiful home - the view onto the sea was like no other :) We did the aquarium encounter which I would recommend, we also we'd lucky enough to watch the turtle hospital release a turtle back into the sea We also took a chill day out and went to the art studio and painted some pottery - such lovely people and a lovely service would definately recommend them. Finally the kids swam with the dolphins - via the research centre so 3 very happy children!!! Thank you for sharing your home hopefully we'll be back again Kindest of regards Kym"

Marathon Travel Tips

Marathon Rentals Are Ideal for Watersports Enthusiasts

The Florida Keys have long been considered to be one of the premier destination spots in the South Florida area. Marathon, in particular, is a popular favorite with vacationers. Considering the range of water sports offered just off the shores of Marathon, and conveniently near Marathon vacation homes, it is easy to see why so many people come to Marathon rentals year after year. Add in the choice of Florida Keys lodging on Marathon and you have an ideal tropical getaway destination.

Marathon Rentals for Scenic Views Right from Your Deck

One of the first things that you will notice about Marathon after you check into your Florida Keys lodging is that the views are absolutely spectacular. You could easily sit on the deck of one of the comfortable Marathon rentals and spend the day just simply gazing out over the ocean. When you feel up to something more exciting, Marathon offers plenty of choices, such as deep sea fishing excursions, kayaking, snorkeling or simply wandering along the beach.

Marathon Vacation Homes Are Comfortably Located near Everything

Marathon vacation homes provide more than just comfort and convenience. If you want to be situated right in the heart of all of the water sports that can be found on Marathon, there is no better way to do that than with condo or private home-style Florida Keys lodging. One of the most charming and unique "Keys," Marathon will provide you with lifetime memories.

Florida Keys Lodging Provides Privacy and Comfort

Marathon vacation homes are the ideal ways to enjoy your getaway to Marathon. Why be bothered with hotel or motel accommodations when you can choose from Marathon rentals that offer all of the conveniences and comforts of home? No matter how you choose to spend your vacation, you can come home at the end of the day to a private sanctuary. Prepare a meal indoors, on the grill or head out to sample some of the mouthwatering local cuisine. Visiting local bars in the area is the ideal way to end the day as you sip a beer or cocktail and watch the sun set.
