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.

Perfect large family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our multi family vacation. Very spacious and comfortable with large accommodating bedrooms. We had several families with babies and the bedrooms were large enough for each family. Lots of room to spread out. Perfect location. We rented a boat, kayak and paddle boards and enjoyed them right off the dock. The manatee came and visited too!! Loved spending time by the pool and fishing off the dock. Would recommend to anyone.

What you see is what you get! We stayed the week of 8/5-8/12/2017. There was 10 of us and 3 boats. It was perfect!! Everything was just as advertised, the upstairs has been completely updated, it was spacious and comfortable. The Pool was a nice cool welcome everyday. I have stayed at others with pools and they always seem to get too hot and not refreshing, but this one was looked forward to everyday. The BIG ?, "Would I rent again"? ABSOULTLY. Thank You Mr. Atkins for sharing your wonderful home! Tonya Sewell

House was perfect for our family! Spacious, well equipped and we loved the location. House was just as it was described, pictures do not do justice. We are thinking about coming back next year for two weeks! We enjoyed fishing in tha canal and relaxing in the pool. Thanks for a wonderful vacation spot!

Perfect Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this house! We had a group of 9 adults and everyone had plenty of room. The house is exactly as it is described, we couldn't have been happier. The owner was very accommodating and helpful and was easy to communicate with. Anyone looking for a house in Marathon should keep this one at the top of their list! We will definitely be renting it again next summer!

Only one word....Wow! The home is "literally" falling apart. Renter beware!

  • 1 of 5

From the description online, I gathered we would be staying in a beautiful updated home. Not the case. If you value your safety, stay away. I do not know the building codes in Marathon/Monroe County, but this place has broken concrete structural columns with exposed rebar holding up bedrooms on the second floor. The wooden beams supporting the front bedrooms are completely rotted. There is a flood lamp hanging 25 feet from the second floor eve by the pool which is only held by a single piece of electrical cable, it poses a huge hazard if it happens to fall while you are around the pool. The rear staircase leads to a riddled mess of decks and steps which have no accessible lighting when descending the stairs. We had a family member stumble down the third landing and fracture a wrist. There is mold all over the rear outside eating area floor because of a wall unit air conditioner that leaks into a plastic soda bottle connected to a garden hose! When you venture upstairs, all the tile is cracking under your every step. Every last appliance is broken in some sort of way, not to mention sliding glass doors and toilet seats as well. The home is in a great location, end of story. Do not get ripped off, there is an abundance of beautiful, renovated homes to rent in Marathon. Don't be foolish and believe the description, do your do diligence and look into to this property before you rent it. Pictures online are not current, this place is in shambles.

Owner's Response: This renter is fabricating complaints and creating drama I assume for the sole purpose of soliciting a refund. I fell for this move last year, and i wonder if it is the same group? I can only assume they will offer to take this down in return for a refund... But I'm not going for that again. ATTENTION SCAMMERS - this review will stay up because i will not pay for it to be removed, so please pick another home to visit if this is your plan from the start. If not... they are (to be polite) playing recklessly with the truth and didn't contact me or the cleaning lady (her number is on the fridge) with a single complaint during their stay. I had a local contractor review the structure of the home (just to be sure) and there is no issues. - decks a riddled mess ? What does that mean ? there is a deck that is the front porch and it is in perfect shape? The Jacuzzi deck is less than 2 years old and is in perfect shape ? - Rotted wood supporting the front bedrooms ? - there is no wood columns supporting the front bedrooms. they are on cement supports in perfect shape... ??? another lie Broken tile under every step - another lie ! I have 3 five star reviews from the 3 renters before you, and the two since your visit gave me 5 star reviews. I am proud of this home, and I spend a lot of time and money to keep it up to date. As far as the pictures up to date- they have the new flooring in the pictures... it was installed in 11/2016. New floors in all the bedrooms and the kitchen in 11/2016 New fridge in 5/2016 New Dishwasher in 3/2016 New Stove in 7/2017 New leather couches that recline in 12/2016 New slider going from the kitchen to the patio in 2/2017 If there is a problem with an appliance, they simply had to tell me. They're all under warranty. I waited to post a response because I was so angry about this review. My lady said I needed to calm down.... but I take this place serious and very much to heart. If any renter has a problem... just call me. Or call the cleaning lady who's number is on the fridge. We both have a list of contractors in case of any issue, and we'll fix it immediately.
