About Corinne Johnson
When not in Marathon, we live in Little Rock, Ar. We love the keys and bought this house instead of a boat! We are still looking for the right boat, but are so glad we found the right house! We love sitting in the pool (it has ledges all around) listening to Jimmy Buffet. Sombrero Beach is wonderful and just a short walk away. It is quiet and not crowded. March 2018 Update- everyone wants to know about our canal and the beach. Our canal is clear and Sombrero Beach is open! See March 18 Pictures.
Corinne Johnson purchased this House in 2010
Why Corinne Johnson chose Marathon
We have rented homes throughout the Keys and like the central location Marathon. Marathon has the feel of the Keys, but also has the conveniences of home.
What makes this House unique
The short walk to Sombero Beach and sitting in the private pool are our favorites

We so enjoyed the house! Pool was small & not deep, but it was perfect for make up volleyball games & the ever popular Marco Polo. The kids rode bikes, went to the beach, ran (both into cross country). The adults loafed. Close to a nice Publix, easy to get around in Marathon. Very helpful that there was a light at the street out to Overseas Hwy. And the kids were over the moon abt going to bed at night with their TV on! New experience for them.
Corinne was very responsive. A bike tire went flat & the next day a guy showed up to fix it. I had only intended to let her know
This property has the potential to be excellent . . .
Unfortunately, problems started when we first arrived including the house not having been properly cleaned including a bunch of hairs in the bathroom on the floor and rug. This situation likely contributed to the musty smell upon our arrival. The property manager arranged for the cleaning staff to come back to clean properly a couple of days later. We were also surprised when we couldn't adjust the air conditioning below 72 degrees as we like to sleep cooler at 70 degrees. With the owner's approval, the property manager figured out how to override the pre-set so we could adjust it during our stay. Thank goodness the property manager and owner were responsive and accommodating of the issues we experienced. The pool area was great. The decor inside is lovely. Unfortunately, the more use a rental property gets, more time & money is needed to clean everything thoroughly for the next guests.
Thank you for the feedback. I am so sorry our home was not its usual very clean self! My husband and I were in the home the 2 weeks before your visit and the team should have had an easy time of it:) I am glad we were able to make everything right for your stay!

We totally enjoyed your Marathon home. We felt comfortable as we enjoyed the heated pool.
Your house was meant for us. The living area was comfortable, the bedrooms were just right for us and the kitchen had all the items we needed for cooking the meals. We especially enjoyed the heated pool and the view to the the Atlantic Ocean. The bikes and boating were a benefit. We were close to many restaurants and the Publix was convenient. We enjoyed the Turtle Hospital and the nearby beach. Key West was less than an hour away so we enjoyed the time spent there. We liked "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere" so much that we have already book for next year. Thanks for making the entire rental process so easy.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and the greatest review is rebooking for next year! We are here this week for our own vacation!

Beautiful view and very comfortable, beautiful home.
House was on canal, but we had an unobstructed ocean view. Neighborhood is very quite and relaxing. House was very comfortable, large living area and large bedrooms and one floor which is great. Having the kayaks and bikes was a plus. Would definitely stay again. Had a great time and this house is very convenient to the beach and shopping. Owner and agent are very responsive.
Thank you for your kind words! We love our home in the Keys and our guests ! I am sitting in the Living Room enjoying the beautiful Ocean view right now! A little lunch then out of the Pool! We hope to have you again soon!

The house in good place. Just need little updates :)
We love marathon and keys We been coming for years. Enjoyed the stay and fished lots.
Cozy and clean
Wonderful communication with the owner and local personal. We stayed two months after Hurrican Irma and they always were quick to respond and helped assured us that thing would be ready in time.
Very clean and decorated cutely. The pool was a great size and loved having access to the kayaks.
Didn't like the washer and dryer was an outside access but they worked fine.
