Overpriced, pictures are NOT current
The location is great! Its a short distance to the open Gulf and in a protected canal. The home has lots of room for a large family or two families.
The pictures that describe this home in the listing are NOT what we paid for. Upon our arrival the house smelled HORRIBLE...like rotten fish. It turns out the garbage disposal was broken and a note was left on the counter stating that a "plumber would be out to fix it". The icemaker was also broken.We ended up pouring a gallon of bleach down the sink to help mask the smell. We found the house to be in very poor condition overall.....the safety rail on the pool steps was broken and put back together with duck tape, the railing on the second story deck was broken in several spots and loose along with several steps. The exterior screen door handle was also broken and if the door shut, you couldn't open it back up without using a screw driver or butter knife. The rollers on the shower door down stairs were worn to the point of the door was falling out of the tracks and this is exactly what happened....smashing several of my young daughter's toes in the process. To cap the entire trip off, we had drywood termites swarm in the guest bedroom! We have been vacationing in Marathon for many years and have NEVER had an experience like this one. The home has a lot of potential, but is in serious need of repairs. We did contact the owner and he did send someone out to repair the pool step bar and the garbage disposal and that's a good start. The pictures shown are NOT accurate and this home is way overpriced for its current condition.
Needs to have a cleaning company completely go over the whole house. Maintenance was lacking in a lot of places on the property.
Great Location for boating!
This house was a great vacation spot for our annual 2-family Keys vacation. The dock was perfect for fitting both of our boats with room to spare and a great location minutes away from Vaca cut. We enjoyed the house. The hot tub and pool were great for the adults and the kids even if the waterfall did not work. The house had everything we needed but there does need to be some things fixed/updated a bit. The kitchen was stocked with pots/pans, spices, coffee maker, blender and other items. I am sending some pictures of items that should be addressed for future renters to Tim. I also wish the write-up detailed the fact that the 5th bedroom/bottom floor was not connected to the 2nd floor except through the outdoor stairs. This definitely makes a big difference in selecting a house when you have kids that were expecting to use the bedroom. We ended up fitting everyone in the 4 bedrooms. I think if the kids were old enough this would not have been a problem - but we may not have rented it if we knew this when we were searching for houses. The pool table downstairs was a fun addition that the kids enjoyed. There was plenty of parking for our trailers and trucks. Overall a great location for a Keys vacation- just needed some updates to make it perfect.
Sunshine & Fun Times!
All I can say is WOW! What a great place to stay! I searched for months trying to find the perfect place to rent in Marathon for 4 couples and this fit the bill perfectly! We had everything right at our fingertips! Pool, hot tub, grill, fully stocked kitchen and of course ample dock space! Quick access to the Vaca Cut made for multiple trips offshore and we also kayaked straight from the house out to the gulf and watched beautiful sunsets! We will definitely be back!
Property was good
Keys fishing trip
Great place lots a room for boats and trailers
200 ft. of seawall so bring the boats. Deep canal with quick access to the gulf but close to Vaca Cut for Ocean access. Once you stay at this house, you'll never book another.
