Home away from home, with a view!
"My husband and I found Jerry and Deborah's wonderful Long Key property when they had had a cancellation. We stayed in the smallest unit, which is the perfect size for two people. The small floor space is used very effectively, and the kitchen and bath are nicely appointed. I found everything I needed to cook, including a strainer to rinse quinoa! We have a lovely view from the small deck, and the common area has lots of equipment to make your stay interesting. Jerry and Deborah have been most helpful. This is a great place!"

"Accomadations could not have been better, the view of the ocean spectacular. Local shop and restaurants superb. Sea food lovers dream come true. Only glitz beaches piled high with rotting sea weed and kelp. No effort of the community to clean it up, the smell was nausiating."

Excellent set up, wonderful location, perfect for multiple couples or families, especially w/boats
"I was planning a "diving/lobstering/fishing" trip with my good friends, brother from out of state, and two boats we trailered down from Tampa. We needed accomodations for 9 people, including 3 couples, and enough dockage for 2 boats. Seeing pictures and descriptions on the internet is one thing, seeing it in person is another. Tim assured me this would be a great place for us, and after staying here for a week everyone loved it. From the wonderfully appointed kitchen where we cooked and ate 95% of all our meals while staying (and saving us a LOT of money in the process) to the location, wonderful pool, great dockage for our boats, and convenient location for both Gulf and Atlantic boating, we all had a great time. Beds and furniture were nicely appointed, there were two laundry rooms, a pool table, large living room where we all gathered to talk or play cards at night, and the AC kept up with 9 people in the middle of summer. The bait freezer was a huge help for our fishing needs as was the additional fridge/freezer in the downstairs suite. Even though there were 9 people, we never felt cramped or crowded and were all able to have privacy if we wanted it. Cleanup of our dive and fishing gear as well as filleting of fish caught or lobster snagged was very easy as well. All in all I can't think of much that would have improved our stay except maybe an elevator from the bottom floor to the main floor on the top, but hey most of us can stand some extra exercise, right? :)"

"This place is great. The condo is very comfortable and the location is very convenient to the beach (about 3 miles), state parks, stores and restaurants. The balcony is excellent for watching the sun rise. The condo has everything you would need for cooking, etc. The only thing you need to purchase on arrival is soap (assuming you bring your own shampoo, etc) We highly recommend this place and would not hesitate to rent it again if we go back to Marathon. Good value for the money. The owners are very easy to work and very quick to respond to our emails with questions. Marathon is more "laid back" than Key West, so if you are looking for a relaxing area for vacation, this is the place."
