Good deal for the money
We had a great family vacation in Marathon. The pool/beach area was very relaxing and well maintained. The location was great for traveling all through the Keys. We took trips to both Islamorada and Key West with no trouble. The property management was very thorough and informative in check in/check out process. This particular unit was clean and easily accommodated our family. The decor and furnishings were dated and somewhat worn out; however, we were really only there to sleep. We would rent again for the perks of the pool and beach area!
Great stay with the family, great location with own beach and the management was extremely helpful
We spent the start of 2019 here. We had a awesome time and can’t wait to go back.
We loved the area, beach was great can’t say anything bad about the place. Can’t wait to book another trip down there.
Thank you for taking the time to review us. We are very happy you enjoyed you stay and we home that you will vacation with us again in the future.
Beautiful view of ocean, Quiet stay, but needs appliance and furniture update
Beautiful view of the ocean and pool. Easy access to local restaurants and grocery shopping and 1 hour and 15 minute drive to Key West. Rental of kayaks, bicycles delivered to your doorstep for free. Quiet and away from crowds and traffic. Property needs to updated. Dishwasher rack has rust holes and refrigerator rusted on the outside. Old appliances need to be replaced. Master bed box spring creaked when you moved causing you to wake up. Need to replace.
Our room had a very, VERY strong smell of mold. This presented us with the choice of keeping windows and doors closed and smelling the mold or opening the windows and smelling the rotten egg seaweed. Not a decision you want to make on vacation. The pool was very nice. We were sad that we couldn't enjoy the beach although we understand nature can't be controlled.. but we may have picked a different time to visit if we knew the seaweed is there this time of year. I can imagine that this is a very nice place but we just went at the wrong time.
Thank you for taking the time to let us know how you felt about your recent stay with us. We take all input very seriously, it helps us improve and we want our guests to be fully satisfied with their stay. We are so sorry that certain aspects of your stay were disappointing. We are happy to help our guests and we try to address any issues immediately if you let us know about them during your stay, we have a condo manager in the office and a grounds manager living on site.
After Hurricane Irma hit us in the fall of 2017, the condos were checked for moisture intrusion, including the one you stayed in, so there are no mold issues in the condo. However, we will certainly have it checked again now that you have mentioned it. Whenever a home, resort, or hotel have an oceanfront location, dampness is a constant aspect of life – and we do have central air conditioning in the condo to keep the humidity in check while keeping it comfortable when the outdoor temperatures rise. Sometimes a condo can be a bit “stuffy” if it has been closed and unoccupied for a while. Additionally, the natural environment, with seagrass and salt air can be very pungent. It is simply a fact and facet of nature here in the Florida Keys, with all the Mangrove trees and roots that surround a great portion of each little island, and attract and hold all of that sea grass and sea life, it has a great ecological significance. We do have the beach raked by a backhoe daily, as the tides and weather permit, and as you noted, we are not able to control strong winds or high tides. As you also noted, the time of year and season can impact whether we are more prone to the sea grass or less prone to it, just as the falling autumn leaves have a season in most parts of North America. You may want to consider an inland resort with a pool, within a short drive of the shore, as an alternative. However, we would love a chance to change your mind – we would be happy to offer you a discount should you return again, perhaps sometime during December through May, when the seasonal seagrasses are usually less pervasive. Please reach out to us directly through our email and let me know if you’d be willing to try that, as we can sometimes be more crowded during those months, but we want to give you a more agreeable experience!
