About Bob Royko - CALL FOR OWNER CONFIRMATION

We live in Wisconsin, and like so many in our part of the world we sought out warmth and sunshine during the winter months. After many visits to many warm weather venues we discovered Paradise in the Florida Keys. Our first visit was in 1978 and we have come back every year since.

Bob Royko - CALL FOR OWNER CONFIRMATION purchased this condo in 2003

Why Bob Royko - CALL FOR OWNER CONFIRMATION chose Marathon Area

We chose Seaglass in Gulfpointe 2 because it has everything we love about the Keys. It is secluded and quiet but still walking distance to our favorite beach and restaurants. Our home is spacious and the views are fantastic from just about every room.

What makes this condo unique

Seaglass is right on the water and from our balcony you will see ocean birds and aquatic life that will keep you entertained. Our location is convenient to great attractions to the West in Key West and to the East with all of the Islands in the Islamorada chain. As our guest you will have access to a private beach in Key Colony (Inch Beach) which can be reached on foot or via a 2 minute car drive.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Bob And Connie

Thanks you for sharing your large welcoming home with us. It is one

of the best equipped and nicest that we have stayed in thru VRBO. We

really appreciated that Bahia Honda State Park was so close too. We did not miss anything that we needed in your well equipped home.

Your directions and instructions were perfect and clear. We particularly liked the wooden table on the balcony where my husband and I enjoyed our evening wine in the warm breeze.

We will be back.

Thanks you

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We shard the condo with one other couple. It was the perfect size for the four of us. We had everything that we possibly needed. The view is spectacular. Loved taking our morning coffee to the docks and watching the spotted rays, sea turtles, and colored fish swimming around us. We rented a boat and docked it right there. We used the pool a couple times each day. It was the perfect temperature and we had fun watching the iguanas. We were looking forward to using the grill but found it was no longer available. The next door neighbor let us use his. So nice. We have always rented a home on the ocean side but are now converts to this unit.

Paradise In The Keys

  • 4 of 5

Having stayed at the same complex before our over-all impression has not changed....great place to stay and good jumping-off point to all other areas of interest in the Keys (i.e. Key West, Key Largo, area beaches, Miami, etc.).

Property was well maintained and equipped with all the conveniences. However, the grill was not on our balcony, as anticipated, but down under the building and too heavy to carry it up the stairs. The result was that several meals we planned could not be prepared.

None the less, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: Hi Michael I'm sorry about the grill. We have been informed by the County and the Marathon fire Department that grilling on the balcony or under the building is no longer permitted. In order to use the grill, the unit must be moved away from the building to a spot that has nothing flammable above it like a ceiling or an overhang above the balcony. I'm glad the rest of the trip was good for you. the location is excellent and we do try to provide a clean, well furnished facility. I hope we see you again in the future. Bob Royko

Excellent location and super clean condo

  • 4 of 5

This was our 6th year at Gulfpointe 11 condos; the first one at Seaglass. One of the cleanest properties we've been to, super comfortable and great location. The views were excellent! Looking forward to staying again!

Rented Seaglass 3X and it gets better each time!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, along with another couple, rented from Bob in 2016. This was our 20th year in the Keys and our 3rd time renting Seaglass from Bob. The condo has been updated since the last time we rented. There is a new comfortable leather sofa and 2 new leather recliners in the living room, along with a new flat screen Samsung HDTV. There is a new refrigerator too. The new items are a sign that the owner (Bob) cares about his property. We love the location of Seaglass, right in the middle of the Keys. It is just 53 miles south, to Key West, or about the same north, to Key Largo. There are loads of places to fish, hike, walk, boat, and sight see. Renting the property is fast and easy. I highly recommend Seaglass.

Very Nice Marathon Condo

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Seaglass with spectacular views and a great location. It was very nice having the pool so close and plenty of nice restaurants within a mile or so to enjoy. We definitely plan to return to Marathon.

It will not disappoint

  • 5 of 5

This rental did not disappoint. Plentiful supplies within the condo, like towels, and for your cooking needs. The condo is roomy. Appliances wiporked well. It had good internet and t.v.. service. There's a fabulous view off the condo balconies, with good parking, nice pool and friendly neighbors. Docking is great, and there are many choices nearby for fishing excursions, shopping and restaurants.

Marathon has everything that the Keys have to offer. Water everywhere, ocean museums, world class diving and fishing, incredible fresh seafood every day and it's easy to find your way around. One main street, that's it. Look for the many fascinating festivals in Key West or the art festivals that occur throughout the Keys and the wonderful beaches for total relaxation. All this, and the most laid back atmosphere in the world. You will want to come back again and again.
