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

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!

Perfect weather in a perfect location!!

  • 5 of 5

The unit at Coco Plum was just as described. Comfortable, well appointed and quiet. The view is spectacular. Our hosts are always quick to respond and helpful. Since the hurricane the beach is much larger. It will take a while to become beautiful vegetation again and cleanup is ongoing.

Beautiful beachfront condo!!

  • 4 of 5

I can't say thank you enough! We stayed at this condo Christmas week. It was very nice and relaxing and away from all the hustle and bustle. We could truly enjoy reflecting on the real meaning of Christmas and found a church to attend as well. The condo was very clean and well maintained. The beach was very nice. The island is still recovering from the hurricane so not all stores and restaurants were opened yet. The pool was not opened yet, but the beach was and it was beautiful! We had plenty to do! We enjoyed getting to know the locals. We plan to go back again to experience Marathon when more recovered.

Lovely Quiet Condo

  • 5 of 5

This unit is very comfortable, well equipped and maintained, and has a teriffic view of the Atlantic. The sunrises are lovely to see from the balcony. The big pool, between the building and the ocean, is a real plus. There is a long, lightly used, white beach right in front which is perfect for walking. The condo is conveniently located fot shopping and activities. We’re coming back!

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very nice, clean and well kept. The view of the Atlantic Ocean is spectacular. The owner was very easy to work with and gave us some tips on great places to eat. I wish we could have stayed longer!
