About Timothy Adkins

I live in Ohio, but I love to vacation in Marathon... I love everything about it. Most people rent their houses out an average of 18-20 weeks... I rent mine 49... and stay there the other 3.... because of re-peat renters and referrals.

Timothy Adkins purchased this house in 2006

Why Timothy Adkins chose Marathon

I vacationed in marathon for years. I rented houses that looked good on the web, but didn't live up to the billing. So I thought 'I could do better'...

'My husband and I stayed at the Palm Breezes in Marathon with 3 other couples. It was a wonderful experience - the house is spacious, very nicely decorated, and has all the luxuries of home. We loved the waterfall pool and spents hours in it daily. We caught a large fish in the canal, and even enjoyed eating some of the coconuts we found on the ground. A+ rental.'

Cynthia Dennis, Beaufort, SC

'I had my wedding at Palm Breezes House. The house is spacious. My entire family was able to eat indoors when the rain started (28 of us). The house is a 'home away from home'. You can tell this is personal to the owner... not just an investment. There are pictures of past renters on the walls. Tim said he was going to post our wedding picture so we could come back to see it.

Better than advertised

  • 5 of 5

Tha "Palm Breezes" house was exactly what the group of 9 of us needed. We had 4 couples and 1 bachelor, so the downstairs man cave- bedroom was perfect for him. It also allowed for us guys to play pool,watch college basketball well into the evening without worrying about disturbing anyone who went to bed early. The extra bathroom and shower down there were a nice plus as well.The pool was were the women hung out most of the day, soaking in the Florida sun. Just about everyday the manatees would stop by for a visit, one day there were 6 of them. There is plenty of room to dock boats, and a nice fish cleaning table to use after the days catch. The hot tub was another great addition to this house, and was a great way to start the mornings.

The pictures of the upstairs of this house do not do it justice. The kitchen is beautiful, from the countertops to the stainless appliances. The master bedroom is huge and has its own bathroom. There are 3 other very nice bedrooms with 2 more baths. House is very clean. The screen porch off the kitchen is a nice feature to relax or play cards in.

The location of the house is another great advantage . Your within walking distance of a Walgreens a couple of places to eat even a nice little cigar shop. By boat your about 5 minutes from the vaca cut, which was great when having to hit captn hooks for gas and bait. The owner even emailed us a list of great places to eat, we hit all but 1 and he was spot on with all of them, the lobster Rueben at keys fisheries is a must try.

I would recommend this house for any kind of group.With 9 adults I never felt I was on top of anybody. If you want to hit key west your only an hour away, but plenty to do at this property if you chose to stay in.

Fun-n-Relax in the Sun!

  • 5 of 5

"Palm Breezes" is just that, there always seems to be a breeze and the yard is full of palms. The great things about the property are:

* A very relaxing home.

* We had 4 vehicles and there was ample room for all to park.

* A clean home inside and out.

* The entire pool area was nice.

* There were televisions everywhere.

* The furniture was nice and relaxing.

* The kitchen was very suitable for cooking.

* The outside grill was handy several times.

* The fishing in the canals along the home was fun and we actually caught a couple keepers.

* We even had manatees visit us twice, close enough to touch.

* The position of the home in Marathon made getting to the stores very quick and getting to most parts of the Keys with a 1 hour ride.

Overall a very comfortable place to spend a week in paradise!

Great property

  • 5 of 5

We took our whole family and enjoyed it tremendously. The manatee did come in one night and the kids loved it. The pool was just the right temperature and they used it morning to night. For anyone with an active baby, bring along a pack-and-play. The crib mentioned is more like a bassinet.

Wonderful, Comfortable Marathon Home

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our trip to Marathon! The house is exactly as advertised - 1 bedroom and 1.5 bathrooms are downstairs where the pool table is, which made for a great place to hang out for those who wanted to stay up late! We truly appreciated having access to two laundry areas and a second fridge downstairs for easy access when we were hanging outside.

The hot tub turned out to be a great advantage, but it was the heated pool that was the true star here. It has a small ledge most of the way around the pool; it's a very unique feature and keeps you from feeling as if you have to clutch the edge the entire time if you're just relaxing!

The house sits on a corner property, and one of my favorite parts was that there's great sun throughout the day; in the late afternoon I'd move to the front upstairs porch and sit in padded chairs to savor the sunlight.

One member of the party brought his boat and went out fishing most days. He didn't have a whole lot of luck (it was a bit windy and rough most mornings), but the neighbors were friendly and helpful in trying to guide him to the best spots. We took a couple cruises, and the canal is very close to the Gulf, and the passage to the ocean was only about 10 minutes away.

There are new couches and new flooring throughout the main living areas; it feels fresh and clean.

The beds were comfortable and the linen seemed fairly new. Here and there there's some wear, but nothing one wouldn't expect from a vacation rental, and nothing that truly hindered our enjoyment.

Communication with the owner was occasionally delayed, but he warned us about that ahead of time. We had no trouble reaching him when it was important, and we had our security deposit waiting for us when we returned home.

The airport is less than five minutes from the home, which made the skies rather interesting to watch as we swam in the pool. I'd recommend a helicopter trip; they're a little expensive but well worth the trip, and a great way to see places you'd like to check out!

All in all, Marathon is a great place to stay as a central location for the Keys, and it's big enough that it isn't hard to find anything you need if you don't feel like a drive.
