About The Owner

We love warm tropical places and that is why we purchased this home in PARADISE!

The Owner purchased this house in 2014

Why The Owner chose Marathon Shores

It was love at first sight! We rented this home for our vacation and loved it so much we jumped at the opportunity to own and continue sharing as a rental that others can enjoy as well. We purchased this home with the intention of retiring here and we know once you step inside you'll feel the same way too. Easy access to the Marathon Airport, off the main highway yet close to supermarkets and 24-hour store (walking distance).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mrs Reyes. The property was fantastic and the water access was great. Our stay was too short of course but would recommend to our responsible friends renting your property. I would hate to see anything disrupted to your property. It was perfect. Thank you.

Great House in Marathon!

  • 5 of 5

Marathon Oasis was a great choice for our vacation this January. We wanted a home that was central to Islamorada and Key West, and this was perfectly situated for our needs. The house is immaculate, with all of the amenities you could ask for. High end kitchen appliances and tools for cooking. We enjoyed the patio area in the evenings watching the pelicans flying overhead. The neighborhood is very quiet, the only sounds we could hear upon retiring was the wind blowing! Communication from the owner and the property manager was informative and prompt. We would return to Marathon Oasis!

wonderful time !

  • 5 of 5

this is one of the best vacation rentals we've ever had. Beautiful house exactly as pictured (even better when you're there). The dock was great for the 27 ft boat we rented. My son said I should put in on a list of the best to go back to. And having a pool is a bonus. Thank you for allowing us to rent it.

Truly home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This house and location is perfect. The public boat ramp is a 20 minute ride and this home is literally on the main channel to head out to deep waters. We brought way too much stuff from home. All you need to bring is your boat, food/paper products and clothes. The home is well stocked with everything else. You won't be disappointed. Pat is the best!!!!!

Our family has rented this house several times. It is a boaters paradise and a quick run to anywhere. It has EVERYTHING you could possibly need and more, with a fabulous view right out to the ocean! The last couple of times we have been down there was a manatee in the canal...which is awesome!

Susan has always been amazing and easy to work with and we absolutely adore Pat, John and their 4 legged babies! This is one of our favorite vacation spots! You will not go wrong with this property, it feels like our home away from home! We love is a perfect fit for our family!

The house was inviting with all the amenities you could ask for...

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week at the property and had an amazing time. It was very comfortable, spacious, inviting, and we appreciated the attention to the details the owners provided. They included many items that we have not seen at other vacation properties. As owners of our own vacation property, let's just say, we took some notes to add to our place. :)

Normally, we vacation in Key Largo; however, Marathon is so much better. It has less traffic, great places to eat - and personally, we think the people are friendlier too. Marathon will now be our go-to Keys vacation destination.

The Property Manager, Pat (who lives next door), was very hospitable and kind. She always answered any questions we had and takes very good care of the property.

We brought our boat and the dockage right behind the house is large enough to accommodate a good size boat (we have a 22' open fisherman). The canal is wide enough to easily maneuver the boat around. I will offer boat owners a piece of advice: the channel into the canal is not as deep as others in the area. When entering or leaving, just be mindful of the tides and go in or out with your boat at a full plane at high speed or very, very slowly. Pat gave me this recommendation and we did not have any issues.

Overall, it was a great property and you could be missing out on a great vacation if you don't stay here.
