It has beautiful, soaring views of Vaca Cut, Gulf of Mexico and the Ocean. The third level includes a large living room, huge master suite with sitting area, one guest bedroom and a full bath. The second level has 3 bedrooms, full bath, living room, and a bar area. On the first level is the kitchen, which has beautiful granite counter tops and stainless appliances, a dining area, and one bedroom with another full bath. Relax and enjoy the sweeping views from all levels of this home or relax by the pool (including heat with an additional charge) and watch the boats cruise by! Location, location, location… The direct access to the water is ideal for fishing, trips to the sandbar, or even great for evening boat rides to local restaurants where you can dock and dine! Marathon in general is an ideal location for a Keys vacation. Located directly in the middle nothing seems to be too far away. Spend a night on Duval Street in Key West and watch the sunset at Mallory Square or go mini-golf at Boondocks. Located near the Marathon Visitor Center and Chamber of Commerce.

Best Vacation Ever! Amazing View!

  • 5 of 5

We will be back! A group of 12 of us stayed here and we had the BEST time ever! The house is huge and had 6 bedrooms, everyone having there own bed (SUPER Comfortable) and there was even room for more people to sleep. The pool area and view of the waterway and dock was amazing! We barely left the house, stayed there the whole week except for 1 day we went to Key West! If you have a large group/family this is the house for you! Shops, grocery stores, and restaurants very close by. My favorite thing was watching the afternoon sunset out back with breathtaking views of the Vaca Cut (see lots of boats coming in and out each day). Very relaxing and peaceful. We brought our own boat but will probably just rent one next year (water can be rough at times on this waterway) we swam off the dock multiple times and floated, but sometimes the current was to strong (water is only about chest deep off dock so you could touch the ground, we wore booties on our feet)......BEST VACATION EVER......the only thing i would say is that the kitchen needed a little more cooking supplies (mixing bowls, stirring spoons, cooking utensils) and the gates and parking are super tight if you have SUVs or trucks (but they will fit). WE WILL STAY HERE AGAIN! IT IS TOTALLY WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!

Not Impressed!!

  • 1 of 5

Not impressed!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I was not impressed with the accomidations or the Neighborhood... Driving through the neighborhood toward the house was much to be desired. This big gated home at the end of the block seems outof sorts which explins why we had everything stolen.. Over $10,000 woth of fishing equipment gone. We filled apoluce report and made the realtor aware, however the claim there is nothing they can do.. I dont understand how they can't do something since the property had a non working gate whih is very misleading. In addtion I feel violated!! As if someone stocked us at the home.. The bathrooms are small the balcony is much to be desired, the dock is falling aoarr and not safe, the current is so bad it makes parking a boat next to impossible!! I would not recommend this place to anyone who wants privacy or wants to keep there fishing gear. My family and I have been coming to the keys for over 20 yrs and have NEVER had anytinhmg like this happen. I am sadded for all involved and disappointed in the mangment/ ownership responce. This ordeal has been very traumatic for me and others involved..

Saddly regret choosing this location!

Owner's Response: We are so sorry your fishing equipment was taken from under the house but we have never had anything EVER stolen from our property. During the first 2 weeks of lobster season it is a trying time for the Keys and it is reflected with all the flashing traffic signs on US1 warning visitors to be sure you secure any items of importance. We're so glad you filed a police report and hopefully they will be able to retrieve your equipment. As you can tell from our reviews everyone has enjoyed our property and love the beautiful view over Vaca Cut. Again we are truly sorry you guys did not have a great Keys experience with your loss of fishing equipment but we feel the theft was no fault of ours or the management team. UPDATE 8/22: We spoke with Monroe County Sheriff's office and they have confirmed multiple thefts of fishing and diving equipment left out in plain sight in Marathon and neighboring Keys during mini and opening weeks of lobster season This by no means has ANYTHING to do with this property except the renters left their equipment out in the open in the carport.

Amazing Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We have been every year for several years to this property and have an amazing time!!! The house is very clean and spacious with beautiful water views. The beds are very comfortable. The kitchen is thoroughly equipped. I can't say enough wonderful things about this house. It's always been a pleasure to stay here. My kids love it and I get to enjoy the peace and tranquility the house and the keys offers. there is alot do close by. We always go to Key West. We usually rent a boat while we are there and rent jet skis as well nearby. We also enjoy brunch at Hawk's Cay resort. There is plenty to do and if you just want to hang out by the pool that's a wonderful option too. There is a wonderful BBQ set up with lots of seating for large families and groups. There is a publix and Winn Dixie nearby. The property managers are very attentive and accommodating as well. Looking forward to returning!!! :-)

Spacious with great views

  • 4 of 5

This was a nice place for our family of 10 total (7 adults, 3 young kids) to spread out for our week in the Keys. The house was clean and comfortable with more than enough space for all of us. Compared with other vacation rentals we've stayed in previously, this seemed to be much more hands-off, in terms of any property management involvement. This is not all bad during vacation, but a quick check in would have been appreciated. The provisions provided (i.e. Toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap, laundry soap, etc.) were not quite adequate for a group of our size, but based on instructions left around the house discouraging unnecessary calls, we didn't feel it was appropriate to contact the rental agency, either. The pool photos are a bit misleading, but it was just fine for our young children. One of the sofa beds was still broken, but luckily we didn't need that extra bed space anyhow. The view of the Vaca Cut is beautiful and we enjoyed watching the boats coming and going. A larger SUV would be highly discouraged here due to the tight space and corners in the gate/parking areas. The gates were not automated and it seems neighborhood kids are used to walking through the property often. The beds were very comfortable and it was mostly quiet in the evenings, as well. It would be great to have a few bikes or fishing poles available. Overall, a decent place with beautiful views, although a bit pricey for the quality.

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed here for new years eve! It was fantastic. Huge house! We had 14 people in our group and it was enough room for all of us. Although the two sofa beds did not work, we still made it work. We just had the smaller kids sleep on the sofa. The water views were so pretty. The cool breeze that came from all sides was wonderful. We all enjoyed the pool and fishing off the dock. We caught lots of fish. The beaches are just a short ride away. I would recommend this house to anyone with a big family.
