About Melynda Sachs

I am a retired police officer and a Command Sergeant Major in the Florida National Guard. My wife owns and operates a real estate company for over 25 years (Sachs Realty).

Melynda Sachs purchased this house in 2017

Why Melynda Sachs chose Marathon Shores

For years, my husband and I have rented in the Florida Keys. We love to dive, fish & snorkel in the Caribbean blue water so we decided to purchase in Marathon, FL. I have been in the vacation rental business for over 25 years and a lot of thought went into the purchase. Location was important so being on the Bayside allows you to get out on the open water when the ocean is rough plus we love to lobster!!! To access the ocean by boat, you are 5 minutes from Vaca Cut or 8 minutes from the 7 mile bridge. The restaurants and shopping are great more importantly the fishing, snorkeling and diving is fantastic.

What makes this house unique

With easy access to the Gulf of Mexico and the Ocean, this home is perfect for anglers and the water sports enthusiast. The deep waterway has a straight route to the Gulf with no winding canals. Within minutes in either direction and no idle zones, is the 7 mile bridge and Vaca Cut to enter the Atlantic ocean. If there are rough seas in the ocean, the Bayside is typically calmer. The Gulf is where you are going to find lobster and excellent conditions for kayaking and padding boarding.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough good things about this home! Everything was as listed. The location is amazing and it was very easy to bring the boat around from the ramp. The location was perfect, and it is very easy to get out to the ocean! Upon arrival, the property was spotless. The washer/dryer and hot tub were very nice amenities that added to the house. The owner Melynda was VERY easy to communicate with and was extremely helpful in the whole process. If we had any questions she was quick to answer and always very kind. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for an amazing vacation in Marathon. The house is in a prime location with many restaurants and stores close by. This home is beautiful and perfect for any family!

Awesome place, we loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this home and everything it has to offer! The house is lovely, spotless, and was perfect for our family. The dock had plenty of space and the ice maker was a bonus for our fishing days! Meylynda was the best host, she offered several tips to help us get fuel and get to the boat ramp easily. We will definitely be back to Sach’s!! We miss the Keys already!

Wonderful place to stay on vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We had never been to Marathon. This home was a great place to stay for 4 adults. The home was very up to date and extremely clean and inviting. We saw manatee four times that came up to the dock. That was very cool. If I could say anything that they could use at the house it would be two more lounge chairs outside. But other than that we enjoyed every bit of our stay.
