Why Ann Weathersby chose Marathon

We have always loved the beauty and uniqueness of the Florida Keys. After deciding, in 2000, to purchase a vacation rental home, Marathon was our first choice. This ocean front home with a deepwater canal to the Atlantic, was the perfect choice; going out on the boat, fishing blue water or bay water, snorkeling, or diving. The ocean view from the deck is a wonderful place to relax, be with family and friends and grill fresh seafood. Local fish markets have an ever changing selection based on what their boats have brought in that day!

Surrounded by the beauty of the ocean, it truly is a place

where the sea meets the sky!

What makes this house unique

Perfect for vacations with family and friends!

Open floor plan

Water views on 3 sides

Large deck for entertaining

150' concrete dock and bait freezer

Deep water canal to the ocean

Tidal pool full of all species of fish

Private heated pool and hot tub

Kayaks an bicycles provided

Marathon is centrally located in the Keys. Only 1 hour drive from Key West Airport, and a little longer drive from the Miami or Ft. Lauderdale airports.

Perfect home, amenities, and location

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this home is excellent!! You couldn't ask for a better location for a Keys vacation. The house is situated on a peninsula with beautiful views of the sunrise and ocean. The kayaks were awesome for the entire family. Plenty of room for everything, including out 27' fishing boat. The fishing from the dock and out on the water was great, and the lobstering was fantastic! We really enjoyed our stay and the location and amenities were 2nd to none. We can't wait to return for another week in this paradise. Absolutely worth the cost!!

Can't make better memories than this!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Best Vacation Ever! The view is priceless. The kayaks and bikes are such a nice "extra". The house had plenty of room for our group. The house and the surrounding area are very well kept. The check in and check out process is made extremely easy. Our family had the ultimate "Keys" experience staying in this house. We made wonderful memories. We would rent this house every year! So worth it.

5 star place and service

  • 5 of 5

I was very nervous about spending this much money on a property without actually seeing it, someone else of been there before, etc. We all were amazed at the place, but I was more amazed at the service. Any question or thought we had the lady responded and answered me immediately. I would recommend this place to everyone.

This wasn't exactly as it was described on this site --it was BETTER! Can't say enough great things about it, it was spotless, accomodations were top of the line, and it was in the a great location!! It was our first time in the Keyes so did some exploring but if I were to go back I would never leave, no reason to have to leave this house. Fishing, swimming, relaxing we did it all. Perfect family vacation. Kids were ages 12, 8 and 6. Loved everything about it.

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

The house is nice and well equipped. Everything worked except one heating unit which was promptly fixed. Great view - lots of pelicans! Didn't use dock, but looks great. A quiet neighborhood, only an occasional plane - not a problem at all. In January, could get a partial sunset view, and full sunrise. Online materials re the house were accurate. It was clean. No hesitation in recommending.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING VACATION!!! From beginning to end, I cannot say enough about this property!!!!

  • 5 of 5

From the time we pulled in driveway it was a tropical paradise! What a way to spend my husbands 50th birthday celebration!! Fishing, kayaking, the pool, the jacuzzi, pool table, we rented a boat for the week and docked on property! We enjoyed beautiful sunrises and sunsets, gorgeous views of the Atlantic, dinners on the deck, the openness of the home was enjoyed by ALL!! The weather contributed to our amazing week. We spent most of our time outside. We did however travel to key west (1hr away) for some fun! Beds were so comfy! And the house was extremely clean and well maintained. From the very beginning, dealing with Anne with the reservation and feeling confident in our decision, she was amazing and so friendly and always there for us! What a pleasure it was dealing with her and Vicki! You will not be disappointed in any way if u chose this property as your next vacation home!! Definitely a vacation we will NEVER FORGET!!! Thanku Anne!!!
