About Bill and Mary

We have owned this condo for ten years and have enjoyed every time we were able to stay.

Bill and Mary purchased this condo in 2004

Why Bill and Mary chose Marathon Area

We chose this location because of the expansive view of the ocean and the beach. The first time we walked in the front door and saw the spectacular view of the ocean, we knew this was where we wanted to be. We love it!

What makes this condo unique

A long walk on the beach is a very unique option in the keys. This is one of the few locations in the Keys where you can actually walk the beach.

Excellent property, great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My spouse and I enjoyed this well-appointed 4th floor unit. It is actually on the 5th floor because the ground floor doesn't have condos.

The weather was great and the condo and photo were just as described. Wifi was good and enjoyed access to cable and Netflix. I even did a table puzzle. Thanks!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our trip to Marathon and when we opened the doors to the condo the views were amazing! The condo was perfect for our family and we loved our stay. The Owners were absolutely wonderful to work with and would stay there again. The pool was great and we enjoyed talking with the residents. My son didn't want to leave and neither did I. Looking forward to our next visit.

Thank you

Bruce, Chris, Linda and Zach

Beautiful all around

  • 5 of 5

The condo apartment was beautifully decorated and comfortable for 4 adults. The ocean views from the living room and balcony were indeed like being on a cruise ship. The pool itself was clean - a little pelican residue on the deck but, after all, we're seaside. It was not a negative factor. The seaweed comes in constantly, but we expected this in the area and the little beach area is groomed every day.Very quiet during our stay. Beach chairs and towels provided. I highly recommend this listing to anyone. One small touch we would have appreciated - extra toilet paper! But, overall, we felt very lucky to have come across the fabulous place. Thanks!

Very clean well set up condo. The view is amazing.

  • 5 of 5

We felt like we were in a balcony room on a ship looking out over the ocean only without the rocking. It was nice to have a small condo complex with all the amenities of a large complex. The pool was great, the beach was nice and the view from the balcony was spectacular! Being centrally located made it easy to explore. Thank you for the use of your beautiful condo!

Delightful Condo

  • 5 of 5

This attractive, comfortable condo has everything a visitor could need. The 4th floor unit (top floor)faces the ocean for wonderful views and beautiful sunrises. It is handsomely furnished and the kitchen is fully equipped. With a king, double, single, and rollaway bed, there's plenty of room for a family. The large shared pool, heated, in front of the building beside the ocean, is great. We couldn't have asked for more.
