Recent Marathon reviews


    "Just returned from our 2nd 2 week vacation at ISLAND TRADER..loved every minute of it once again. (See previous review)..the view is still absolutely gorgeous!! The outdoor space has been enhanced by a new patio table and 6 chairs under the Tiki-hut. We had gorgeous weather so all our time was spent outdoors...sunning, swimming, fishing, b'queing, relaxing and enjoying. The house has all you need for a great vacation...cold a/c, comfortable bed in master bedroom, well equipped kitchen..wish I could post photo's for all to enjoy. The photo's on the site are accurate, except now there is a new table and chairs under the Tiki and some new landscaping in the back..very nice!!. The area is very neighbors on either side in May. Publix and a K-mart are close..also a Walgreen's with a Liquor store at the top of the street. Savannah's is still there for delicious sweets..the Key Lime pie is a must. Fish Tales has fresh fish and a great meat selection...filet and lobster!! Jackie is a delight to work with and the owner Bill is just a phone call away. Island Trader comes highly recommended for a low key wonderfully relaxing vacation. We have rebooked for 2015 and counting the days to our return..Thank you Jackie..also a big Thanks to Doug who keeps the front and back areas so neat and clean..much appreciated !! Try will like it......"

  • Great views, great weather, great house

    "We stayed at this property in December to get out of the Tennessee cold. The weather was above 80 degrees every day of our stay. Absolutely crazy! Loved that we were able to walk to Captain Hooks to rent a boat and buy bait. We spent every night fishing off of the dock. The dock lights are great. Owner provided us with restaurant recommendations that came in handy. Made us feel like locals!"

  • Marathon Getaway

    "The house is wonderful and it was great to have a pool to swim in every day. Nice outdoor space for your barbecue at night. All the creature comforts are there and then some. Wifi, nice kitchen and 3/2. Plenty of room for our family. Short boat ride to the Atlantic side and off you go! Lots of restaurants to choose from that are close. This is the place to come to relax and enjoy."

    "This home fit our family perfect! It was clean and well stocked just as described. Actually the sliding glass doors were so clean the kids ran face first in them a couple of times, it was pretty funny. With 2 adults and 6 kids ages ranging from 6 to 14 their was always things to do weather it was swimming in the pool, relaxing in the hot tub, walking to the beach, or fishing off the dock. Our whole family spent hours fishing right off the dock and caught all kinds of fish, including a nurse shark. Every morning we would go and sit on the dock and drink our coffee and watch the Iguanas come out of the trees on the otherside of the canal and then swim over to our side. Probably one of the best things the kids got to experience was almost every day when the tide came in a Manatee would swim down the canal. So we sprayed the hose in the canal a little and the Manatee came right over to the dock put it's head out of the water and we got to pet it. That was pretty amazing. So if you stay at this property and see a Manatee , spray the hose in the water a little and maybe you get a chance to pet a Manatee. We also visited Bahia Honda State Park it has a really nice beach and we did lots of snorkling there. We also visited Key West where we ate at the best restaurant called Hogfish Bar and Grill, the price are reasonable and the portions are well worth your money and excellent food ( Highly recommended!). We also visited The Turtle Hospital very information and the kids loved it. The owner of this property is great he provides you with everything you need to know while visiting. The other great thing about this property is all of the landscaping is wonderful because it makes it so much more private. I highly recommend this property it was well worth it and the owner was super quick with getting our security deposit back. Thank you! again Neil for sharing your home with our family we made lots of good memories on this vacation."

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.
