Longtime Florida residents who have always loved and cared for this little piece of paradise called the Florida Keys. All the members of our large family come here and enjoy this wonderful place as often as we and they are able. When the weather 'changes' for us Floridians, we open our home to others in hopes that they too share this experience.
Owner purchased this House in 1991
Why Owner chose Marathon
Since the time we were small children and came to this area with our parents for fishing or mini-lobster season, it became a place to always come back to. A place to one day own. And so, we followed that dream and realized it. My wife and I are very lucky to have had the opportunity to share our home with our family and our guest families.

Delightfully pleasant Marathon stay
This property, comfortable and welcoming, is located in a residential area. The home is nicely situated along a broad canal, with a very peaceful and serene setting and feel. The covered second floor porch overlooking the boardwalk along the water is the perfect relaxed setting for morning coffee and reading, as well as afternoon, pre-dinner wine and drinks. It is quiet and the breeze is gentle.
The home was comfortable for a group of six adults.
The new pool is small but nice, and although there is plenty of sun, much of the pool area is shaded in full or part. The beach, with a lovely setting, however,, is only a few blocks away.
Biking, running, walking are easy and the area invites such activities.
The owners were great.
We would not hesitate booking again
This is a wonderful home to enjoy everything Marathon Key has to offer.
We enjoyed our stay. This house easily accommodated our group of six family and friends. There is plenty of living space and the home is very comfortable. We cooked most meals at the house and found everything needed. The dock is spacious, the water is deep, the grill was nice, and it's a short run to open ocean. Close-by you have fuel, bait, restaurants, and Publix/Winn Dixie. The house was very clean. We would love to stay in this wonderful home again in the future.
Perfect for large or extended family getaway
Villa Casa Cayo is a wonderful home in a beautiful setting. It sits on a wide canal with mature landscaping that offers good privacy. The owners, the Amors, obviously take great pride in maintaining this property as can be exhibited by its condition and decor including the numerous family pictures that are proudly and appropriately displayed.
The kitchen is extremely well supplied with utensils, cookware, and spices. My wife, a wonderful cook, brought a box of assorted spices from home. When we first arrived she checked the kitchen first (no surprise) and told me to not even unload her spices from the truck.
There is an FWC officer that lives in a basement apartment. He was a very friendly young man who I didn't even see until our last night. His presence simply added to the sense of security already present at the property. The home sits in a quiet and lovely neighborhood within a short walk to the pleasures of Sombrero Beach. I'll add that being a pet friendly rental is mandatory for our needs. Our Pug gave wide berth to the comical iguanas who scamper off when approached. Plenty of other lizards around and sea life in the canal for your interest. My wife and I and one of our sons' small family all enjoyed our stay (6 months to 65 years old). Activities abound in the Keys (such as fishing, fishing, and did I mention fishing?). But if you just want to relax "at home" there are many comfortable settings, both inside and outside, at Villa Casa Cayo. The owners are professional, friendly and a pleasure to deal with. I highly recommend this rental.
Perfect get away!
Our family of 4 just stayed at this wonderful home! The owners were wonderful to work with and the home is just as it 's described. We walked to the beach, the cooler and beach cart they provided were awesome! It made all the difference in us not having to pack and unpack each day. The house was very clean and it had everything we needed, even nightlights! The bathrooms are well updated. The porch and fans were relaxing. I do wish we would have rented kayaks or paddle boards to explore the canals but with 2- 5 year olds, we just went to the beach daily. We did drive to Key West one day b/c it was supposed to rain in Marathon. We did try to rent a boat but they weren't operating due to the hurricane on the other side. We saw lots of life around the house including 3 manatees and jelly fish. We snorkeled all around the little rocky coves that are at Sombrero Beach. We went to the fish markets and grocery and ate most of our meals at the house. It was all great! Thanks David and Grace (and Kate) for allowing us to use your beautiful home!
Though I cannot review this property because we had to cancel our trip unexpectedly, I would like to state that the owners were fantastic people to work with. We had reserved this property for an extended family vacation and due to a family emergency, we had to cancel our reservations. The owners were kind and understanding and fully refunded our deposit. They made an unpleasant situation much easier and that isn't something you find everyday. We will eventually make it to the house and I'm sure it will be followed with another excellent review.
Perfect Spring Break
Our family of 4 had a wonderful spring break at Villa Casa Cayo. The description of the house was true in every way. The Amors have thought of everything visitors could need including the extra freezer under the house for storing ice and coolers to take out on adventures. We rented a boat for the week enabling us to explore, snorkel at the reef and fish for our supper. We also rented kayaks which were handy for exploring the mangroves and the surrounding canals. The upstairs porch is beautiful, and the trees make it feel very secluded. The beds are comfy, and the bathrooms are beautifully updated. Sombrero Beach is a quick walk around the corner, groceries and a handy K-Mart are minutes away, and the house is immaculately clean. Having stayed in many VRBO homes over the years, we feel this one is the best we have ever rented. The Amors are lovely to work with and respond quickly to any questions.

Additional information about rental rates
The "Cleaning Fee" covers 4 hours of housekeeping services. If the house is left unusually dirty the housekeeping company may need to supply additional staff to turn the property over to a new guest family. The additional fees charged to the owners will be deducted from the security deposit. We ask that you empty all trash cans, remove and place recycle in designated containers and place dirty dishes in the washing machine and run the wash before you depart. The owners take great joy in providing you a very clean and fully equipped home for your enjoyment and ask that you leave it as you found it.
