About The Owner

I grew up fishing the Florida Keys. My wife and I purchased this home as a week-end get away. I am a licensed Captain and use this location as my charter / tournament fishing headquarters. I am available for walk-on charters. If you would like a crash course on fishing the keys to jump start your fishing / diving vacation please let me know. I offer BIG discounts or package deals to my renters.

Capt. Kevin

The Owner purchased this house in 2002

Why The Owner chose Marathon

Our home is located equidistant from the Seven-Mile bridge and Vaca cut. Being on the Bay side gives you easy access to the best lobster diving and snapper fishing in the area.

What makes this house unique

Marathon has the nicest beach in the Florida Keys and many of the best Restaurants as well. There are many marine and bait & tackle stores making it the most convenient Island for the fishing and boating enthusiast.

Love the Dolphin House

  • 5 of 5

Great house in the heart of marathon. Short drive to Sombrero beach and the tiki bar. Lots to do around the area, and a fun house to spend the nights enjoying the weather and a cocktail in the hot tub. Would recommend highly!

Great Owners

  • 5 of 5

We booked the house and had to cancel and the owners were great in understanding and working with us. It was above and beyond what one would expect.

The experience is one to be shared as these folks are quite nice and better yet, very trustworthy.

The house was great. The location is prime for fishing either the gulf or the atlantic. We even caught fish off of the dock! The spa and patio was also a nice touch. I will be a repeat visitor.

I loved staying at this house! We had such a great time. This is the perfect place to stay in Marathon. The street is quiet and you can do some fishing right from the back yard! Everything is close enough to enjoy. Be sure to visit Key West!
