About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Beautifully furnished home directly on the Gulf of Mexico with private swimming pool, boat ramp, dock and outdoor bathhouse. The house is light and airy with large windows for multiple water views. Located at the end of a quiet residential street, the tropically landscaped property is private and quiet.

The kitchen is large and fully equipped with a granite eating counter. There is a flat screen TV and DVD in the Master bedroom with private bath. There is a large outdoor shower room for use after a day of water activities.

There is 80 feet of boat dockage in protected waters with access to the United State's only living coral reef and some of the best sport fishing in the world. House has it's own splash swimming pool and private beach facing the water. You can kayak, fish or swim or snorkel right off of the dock.

Marathon is in the 'heart of the Keys' - 50 miles from Key Largo and 50 from Key West and our home is within walking distance of restaurants, movie theater, live theater, shopping, bars, etc. We are several miles from the famous Seven Mile Bridge. Museums, snorkeling, kayaking, biking, world famous fishing and diving trips are available nearby. One of the most beautiful beaches in the Keys, Sombrero Beach, is a mile and a half away. Or drive down the road to Bahia Honda State park with beaches, fishing and snorkeling. Just bring your shorts, tee shirts and flip flops and the rest is waiting for a great get-a-way vacation.

EXCELLENT HOUSE for our family of 6 !

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a more perfect place for our family gathering this past week. The home was equipped with everything we needed and more . We have never rented a home with as many extras as this place. To have your own private boat ramp and dock is very rare and made it so convenient for us & our boat as opposed to trailering elsewhere. In addition to this you have your own bait freezer downstairs, Fishermen could not ask for a better place!!!!

The weather did not cooperate during our week but having this lovely home made it more enjoyable with the gorgeous views off the large porch and well equipped kitchen.

The owners were very quick to respond with any small concerns to make sure our stay was satisfactory.

We look forward to coming back and will be recommending to others.

Xmas in Marathon

  • 5 of 5

We loved the place and the view was amazing! House needs a couple little things here and there but with that said we are coming back next year.. I fished quite a bit off the dock and it was fair or great if you like catching sharks and barracuda but again I think I may have not cared at all if I didn't catch anything considering the view... My wife myself and my 2 teenage kids loved it and are looking forward to coming back.

Just got home after a week at this property. The house and grounds were perfect for our group of six and one boat although a second boat would be no problem. Fishing, snorkeling, kayaking in your back yard as well as an open water view of the Gulf, whats not to like! The on property ramp is a great plus and the sunsets from the porch are amazing. Plenty of parking on a quiet street, centrally located in Marathon. From my first Email to the owners to receipt of my security deposit the process was without issue. Will be looking to rent this property again.

Been coming to Marathon for many years - wish I would of found this home earlier. Elegant home with beautiful views. Immaculate. Loved the open layout of the kitchen and living room / dining room. Great views of the water from all these areas. Pretty much everything you need. Loved the Jacuzzi tub in the hall bath. Used it every day. Wading pool was very nice. Fishing on the dock was lots of fun. Usually go off property to go fishing but didn't have to here. Fished everyday. Rain or shine. Ice maker in kitchen was great. Great selection of videos and games if you want. Too many other things going on kept us busy. Nice to have the downstairs fridge for bait and beer. Nice bait cooler. The sunsets were awesome. Great porch to enjoy the surroundings. If you want to experience Marathon with "a touch of class", look no further - this is the place. I will be back next year. This home makes you feel like you are vacationing in style! Too much fun!!!!!

The week went by too fast!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our week in this rental home. Views are lovely, on the Gulf, small splash pool, balcony, small dock (my husband spent a lot of time fishing,) and if it had lights on it(which it does not) he would have been out there at night too! Fully equipped kitchen, (but bring your own paper towels, and we bought a shrimp deveiner while there, because the kitchen did not have one), there are games and books if it rains ,(which it did). Three nice size bedrooms, lines are provided, our bed was comfortable, but the bed pillows were small. One extra roll of toilet paper was provided, so we made a run to Kmart for more. There is a boat ramp, you may bring your own boat, or rent one, and park at the dock. A large family of ducks visited us everyday, we did not feed them, ducky poop would have been everywhere ,,,the weather could have been more cooperative during our stay, but we had a great time anyway. A wonderful plus, there is a separate ice machine in the kitchen, which really came in handy. Jacuzzi tub in hall bathroom, ample furnishings, large TV, and gaming systems, DirectTV, and 3D glasses are provided. Separate bait freezer and refrigerator under carport, outside picnic table, and a kayak that did not appear to be seaworthy, so I did not use it. It is not handicap accessible, steps to climb to enter home. The house was clean and spacious,,,would return again. :)

Great week!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from a week's stay at this wonderful home. Views from the house are incredible. Nice fishing and snorkeling right off of the dock. It was quite windy last week so we didn't get a chance to snorkel at the reefs but saw plenty of sea life right around the little islands off the dock. Would definitely go back!!!
