Recent Marathon reviews

  • Home away from home in the Keys...

    "Our family spent a very enjoyable week at this house. With five bedrooms and five baths, there was plenty of room for everyone. Three things that we particularly appreciated: 1) The location, towards the upper end of the estuary, was particularly quiet and private (very little boat traffic) with lovely views, yet the main road through Marathon was just a short 5 minute drive away. Nearby on this road were two dive shops, several boat rental outfits, lots of fun and casual restaurants, a supermarket, a drugstore, and a beautiful resort (Tranquility Bay) if you were in the mood for formal dining (superb desserts by the way...); 2) The house boasts a spacious, covered upstairs terrace that spans the entire side facing the canal, accessible from the Master and three of the four other bedrooms...a lovely and cool place to gather and relax at any time of the day. There is also an outdoor barbecue area on the ground floor, although we never used it; 3) The owners, Jim and Tudor, were very pleasant and efficient to work with, and we felt that the house offered excellent value for money. It's an older house for sure, but it feels very homey and has a very practical layout in addition to the superb location. In short, an excellent time was had by all!"

  • Location, location , location!

    "Location, location, location! This condo has it in spades! With a side canal and ocean front, you cannot find a better spot. We have been coming to the Keys for years and this condo provided the best access we have ever had to the reefs. It is also convenient to shopping and plenty of restaurants. The pictures on the web site are spot-on accurate. The beds are large and comfortable, providing an excellent night’s rest. The kitchen is well appointed with everything you need if you choose to cook in and there is a fabulous grill should use choose to cook out. The bathroom décor is older, but functional and provides a wonderful shower. There are loads of fluffy towels and all of the beach chairs, coolers and gear you could need. The seating outside on the patio was lightweight so we could carry it to the canal end and watch sunsets. The owners are very friendly and accessible. We also enjoyed meeting the neighbors. We had a delightful stay here and would not hesitate to recommend this rental."

  • 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"
