Wow!!! Everyone had a great time 2 to 86 year olds!

  • 5 of 5

Best week ever! Beautiful location and house. Landscaping and ambiance was picture perfect. Family of 19 had plenty of space to share or get away for alone time. Boat ramp saved us a day of running back and forth to launch two boats. Very well equipped kitchen kept everyone happy cooking together. Only disappointment was no bathroom in the Casida bedroom. Planning on definetly returning next year!

Awesome Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay in Marathon. This property is amazing. We had a group of 17 (10 adults and 7 kids) for the week and another couple joined us for 2 nights. Plenty of room for everyone and never a dull moment-pools,beach,kayaking,paddleboarding,fishing,snorkeling,biking,relaxing...the options were endless. Kevin the owner was very responsive and came to the property to make sure everything was as we expected and Joe the manager was very attentive and helpful with any issue we had. Highly recommended!!!

A true vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is fantastic for large parties and the owner is very easy to work with. We booked this home for my husbands 40th birthday and invited 4 other couples. We had a wonderful, relaxing time. Plenty of space, amazing views, and all the amenities you need for a large group. We spent most of our time in the pool overlooking the water. You will not be disappointed!

2nd wonderful trip for our 18!

  • 5 of 5

We took our family of 18 for the 2nd time to this wondeful facility! Kevin has done so much with the facility since his purchase of it making it even better than ever! The ocean side pool with the tiki hut along with the beautiful sandy beach make the atmosphere even more wonderful! Staff was great when we needed them in response and the venue boat and its captain did a superb job on taking us fishing with fantastic results! We will return in the near future for sure for our 3rd wonderful experience to see what Kevin has done with our favorite vacation spot!
