About The Owner

We live in Connecticut and have been vacationing in the Keys with our two sons for nearly 15 years. We've created so many great memories. And we know you will, too.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose Marathon Area

To us, the Sombrero Beach area is the nicest neighborhood in Marathon. It's tucked away, quiet with lovely homes. Our home is located on Treasure Road, one block to Sombrero Beach.

What makes this house unique

Sombrero beach is one of the best kept secrets in the Keys. From our house, you can walk, drive, kayak or swim there -- we're that close! The back of the house looks across to mangroves -- it's a very restful, natural environment. The large kitchen and open layout of the living room and dining room makes it very enjoyable to hang around in the house with friends and family.

Great setting on canal. Peaceful away from traffic, easy access.

The weather was perfect so obviously it was easy to enjoy. The keys are all about the outdoors. Since we had a private pool it was convenient to enjoy the weather without leaving the property. Great experience.

Awesome Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's first trip to the Florida Keys. Our family, which consists of 5 children ages 11 to 19, have taken several vacations to Bahamas and Mexico. This was by far the best vacation. The house was perfect and had everything we needed. Centrally located between Key West and Islamorada. We can't wait to go back!

Lovely home, lovely owner

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough wonderful things about this home or working with the owner. The home is lovely and very welcoming. The view was outstanding. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool. There are some really great places to eat in Marathon. We took one day of our vacation and drove to Key West. We're so glad we didn't stay there! Too many people!! We had an issue with the air conditioning during our stay and Ilene had it fixed within a couple of hours. Awesome! I would definitely stay here again should we decide to visit Marathon again.

Fantastic Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I'm so glad I found this rental. It was comfortable and homey and had all the necessities for a home away from home. The place was so much better in person than in the pictures. Loved the pool and the comfy chaise lounges made hours of reading in the sun enjoyable. Several of us took the provided kayaks and kayaked for the first time including a trip to the beach. So fun! Great that the beautiful Sombrero Beach was so close and beach toys were at the house to use. Loved that you could fish from the "backyard" although we didn't catch anything. We would highly recommend Sea Dog Charters right in Marathon for their half day fishing trip. They were great with our two boys (10 & 6) and the trip provided dinner one night. Would also recommend Dry Tortugas/Yankee Freedom trip from Key West, the sunset celebration in Key West, and seeing key deer on Big Pine Key.

Special place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, three sons and I arrived home recently from our stay at this beautiful home. We enjoyed many things about the home and its location, especially the pool, comfortable furnishings and wildlife watching and fishing in the lagoon. Sombrero beach is a short walk down the road and provides a nice place to snorkel, enjoy the beach and watch the sunset. We kept busy with trips to Fort Zachary Taylor State Park in Key West (about 1 hour- 1 1/2 hr away), Bahia Honda State Park (wonderful place to hike, picnic and snorkel or just enjoy the beach and crystal clear water), the Sea Turtle Hospital (a personal favorite!), the Dolphin Research Center and fishing the flats with Captain Perry from Bud and Mary's in Islamorada. The house is equipped with everything you might need for your vacation and is perfectly situated for many fun Florida Keys activities. Thank you again, Ilene!

Sombrero Beach is a beautiful, sandy beach -- arguably one of the nicest in the Keys. It has a new, kid's playground, beach volleyball courts, an area to launch a kayak, picnic areas with grills, wood gazebos, two bathroom buildings, outdoor showers to get the sand off -- and is a great place to watch the sun go down.

Due to our proximity to the beach, the canal is extremely shallow. The house is not conducive for boaters looking to keep their boats on the dock. If you have a boat, we recommend you use a local marina.

Payment is accepted by check or PayPal. A $500 deposit will reserve your stay. Then balance of payment is due 2 weeks before you stay. A separate $300 security deposit check is required with final payment. I will hold your security deposit check until you leave - then rip up if there is no damage.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
