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.

We could not believe how great the condo was the pictures do not show the true beauty. We had 2 adults and 2 teenagers, we all want to go back, the views were amazing. We saw boats, ships, dolphins, sting rays and jet skis all from our room. Mary was so good at keeping in contact and I did forget the door code and she was able to get it to me right away. We have traveled many places and cannot believe the amount of great things to do in the Keys, yes you could tell some areas where the hurricane hit but for the most part it was still beautiful. We really needed some time away from the daily grind of sports, school and work and we all got exactly that, back to work today feeling like I can tackle anything. Thank you!

Everything you would want in a vacation rental. Very private.

  • 4 of 5

Had a great family vacation. The property was everything we had hoped for. The property is sufficiently supplied with everything you should need. I appreciated the cold AC. The property is the last prior to a secluded beach. Most of the time we felt we had the building to ourselves. The pool felt like bath water. We rented Kayak for the week and could take off from the beach The only set back was the seaweed that washed ashore every night and left a rancid smell. This is hit or miss and is solely responsible for the wind direction. Rest assured the property will provide a lasting memorable vacation. Thanks to the property owners for allowing us to stay. We will return..

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very nice review. You are correct in that the appearance of sea grass on our property is dependent upon the wind direction and time of year. We are happy that you enjoyed our property and we welcome you back.

Quiet, relaxing week

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very clean, well appointed, and definitely welcoming. The view of the ocean from the balcony was outstanding. The owners have included novel touches such as board games and puzzles, if you choose.

The property is very quiet and has ample parking and an elevator, which came in handy as we were on the fourth floor.

We would definitely stay here again. It was a wonderful week!

This was the perfect place for us! Relaxing, quiet, and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience here! In fact, we are already looking ahead to next year to book it again. The condo was extremely clean which is always a concern of mine. The view was breathtaking. We spent early mornings and evenings on the porch watching the beautiful ocean. It’s a perfect place because you have the best of both worlds, a great pool just steps away from the ocean. We really liked how it was off the busy road. It was really the best Florida vacation we’ve had yet! Thanks to the generous owners who were very sweet and kind, responding very quickly to any questions I had. Thanks for sharing your home with us!
