HAND'S DOWN BEST TRIP EVER
We were very lucky to book last minute just before the Holidays – wow, what a fantastic place Mar Azul is! It is like your own resort – walking through the Mangroves to the dock (which is smack on top of the ocean and sooo cool to sit and watch life...pelicans, fish, sea gulls and every once in awhile an iguana would show up!). Our family felt so connected with life while there – the pool area is so tropical, there is lots of seating – staying at a gated property made us feel like millionaires, too! The views are absolutely beautiful and the house had everything we needed. Marathon itself had everything we needed too – good restaurants and so much to do! We are so happy we were able to get down there and we have already booked again for the summer! Thank you to Lisa, you made us feel like family!
Thank you so much for your wonderful review - we really appreciate it! We look forward to your return in June, it's just fantastic when things turn out great (us with a rare last-minute cancellation and you with a last minute desire to head to the Keys!)....We look forward to you making Mar Azul your Florida Keys home for a long time - you are such a pleasure!
We arrived saturday, after a long drive through Florida. As soon as we opened the gate to our beautiful retreat, I knew we had found paradise! The grounds were absolutely gorgeous and tropical. Coconut trees and palms surrounded out private pool that became our relaxing spot almost everyday! The boardwalk to the pier was like our a little nature trail that lead to the bluest waters this South Carolina girl had seen. We rented paddle boards and could just paddle right off the dock into the ocean and down quiet canals. The home was exquisite and from this designers point of view, was top notch. Just being at the house was like being in paradise. Lisa has done a wonderful job in furnishing this beautiful home. And she wants you to consider it your home while you are there. Lisa is very easy to work with and wants to make sure that you have everything you need. Checking in and out was so easy. Well, checking out was hard because you do not want to leave. The nice thing about being in Marathon is that you have great grocery stores and other shopping (walgreens etc) close by as well as wonderful restaurants. The sunsets off of seven mile bridge are way better than Mallory Square, but a day trip to Key West was definitely a highlight. We rented a boat while there for one day and I would recommend doing so if you have a person that can read the gauges for sea depth and stuff. We fortunately has a great captain in our group and saw some wonderful sites. This is a great place for a relaxing get away and we will be back and hopefully for 2 weeks next time. Mar Azule is the best!!! And Lisa is Awesome!!!
On behalf of our entire staff, thank you VERY much for your fantastic review! We try very hard to provide a wonderful experience - so glad that all of you enjoyed yourselves! We certainly look forward to having you back - take care!
All the best to you and your family - Lisa
Everything you would expect...and more.
The house is exactly the way the photos decpict. It is beautifully decorated. The bedrooms and bathrooms were comfortable and spacious and the kitchen is well-appointed. The best part is the privacy and beauty of the property. My favorite part of staying at Mar Azul was waking up every morning from the master bedroom and looking at the ocean view. If you are looking to get away, this is the perfect vacation home. Lisa and her staff was a joy to work with. She answered every call and email. One night after a storm, some of the trimwork on the patio was damaged. I called Lisa to notify her and she had someone come out right away to clean it up. My husband and I are already trying to plan our next stay at Mar Azul for next year. Marathon is a convenient place to stay in the keys if you are looking to "key hop" to the other islands.
Thank you!!! We really appreciate you taking the time to let everyone know of your wonderful experience at Mar Azul! Hope that you continue to have a good summer and we sure hope to see you back at Mar Azul real soon - please keep in touch!! All the best, Lisa
Unwind & Rediscover the Splendor of Life!
What a wonderful place to unwind! Lisa's vacation home is just as advertised. It is clean, nicely stocked, and well furnished. The downstairs queen master gave my Mom her own space and more privacy than she expected. The upstairs king master was incredible (the girls actually took it over) and we slept in the upstairs queen (quite comfy). The decks were fantastic, with beautiful views morning, noon, and night. The girls lived in the pool, and my husband and mother on chaises poolside, but my favorite spot was the dock. I spent every morning there. I was absolutely AMAZED by the number of fish in that water! And the best thing of all? I was blessed by a visit from a wild dolphin! It was one of the most exciting experiences I have ever had. It swam right past the dock, coming up repeatedly for air. I had a great time watching it fish each morning further down the way. Lisa, thank you so much for sharing your home with us! We have memories we will always cherish and it's all thanks to you! Oh and incase you don't know Marathon is great for getting to all parts of the Keys and it's lazy Keyzee atmosphere makes it the perfect spot to reset.
Thank you very, very much for your wonderful review! It's not everyone that gets to see Dolphin swimming by - wow!! We truly appreciate you choosing Mar Azul and truly hope you will be coming back down to Marathon again!! Have a fantastic summer! All the best, Lisa
We will be Back...........
Like I told the owner Lisa, If you have a problem with this home ( Not House ) Home, you should stay home. My Family of 4, 2 kids 13 and 16 wife and I , really needed a get away , and that's just what this was. A very private home. Perfectly located , the pictures do it know justice. We did a lot. jet ski , sunset cruise, Dolphin research center. snorkeling and ate out a some really nice restaurants. And found a really great ice cream place called Sweet Savanah's . Never driving more then 5 to ten minutes For anything to include grocery ,CVS or Kamart . We really love the home and hope to return next year. Thank you so much Lisa . Jerald and Family
Thank YOU!! I hope that you and your family have a wonderful summer and we look forward to your return!! All the best, Lisa
This property was absolutely beautiful! The pictures do not lie. We stayed the last week of March 2014 with 2 other couples. There was plenty of room for all of us without feeling like you were on top of each other.The interior was clean and the kitchen was well appointed with anything you'd need to cook. The grounds and pool area were very well taken care of with plenty of chairs and lounges for all to enjoy. We used the grill which was in great shape and spent most days lying around the pool. The weather was fabulous. Lots of nearby stores for grocery shopping and liquor, About an hour drive to Key West. The iguanas were an interesting addition. Would definitely rent this place again.
Thank You very much for your glowing review - we have a wonderful staff that works hard at maintaining Mar Azul and we truly appreciate your kind comments!! Have a wonderful upcoming summer - we look forward to your return to Mar Azul! All the best, Lisa
Mar Azul is located directly Oceanfront - at the end of a quiet, 'Key-zee' street that is directly across from the entrance to the Marathon Airport - which is a fantastic location because you do NOT hear or see planes taking off or landing as their path is totally out-of-range of where the property sits!!
