About Todd and Jamie Stangl

Well, I am married to a great wife and have 4 teenagers. My Kids are Wonderful and I am not exaggerating. 3 of them are currently in college and my oldest is a 3rd grade school teacher her in Wisconsin. All 4 of my kids were very involved in Karate and had been for many years. We are having the time of our lives with running our Vacation Rental Business and living the dream with our kids!

Todd and Jamie Stangl purchased this condo in 2012

Why Todd and Jamie Stangl chose Marathon

I first went to Marathon, Florida when I was 10 years old back in the 70's. My Brother had moved there and worked at Fisherman's Hospital. I fell in love with the ocean and snorkeling. Well he moved away from the Keys in the late 70's and I had never been back until about 5 years ago. I rented a place in Marathon and took my family down there for Spring Break. They had the time of their lives! So, we have been going down to the Keys for the past 5 years and well, I get sick of Winter in Wisconsin. So the opportunity to buy this unit came up and I fell in love with the view and the location. I actually put an offer on the Unit without actually seeing it, other than in Pictures. The Condo is right next to a Natural long beach in Marathon. This was too good to be true. So I took the risk and bought the unit... The rest is history.

What makes this condo unique

This unit has the Million Dollar View... The pool, Palm Trees, Beach and the Ocean! It is quite Amazing. Right next to the unit is a hidden pond/lake. There is a lot of Wildlife that lives, tucked away, back there. Also, there is the Coco Plum Beach. This is a Natural (protected) beach and is about a mile long. We are the last place next to this protected beach. Large Sea Turtles will lay their eggs up in the sand so Marathon protects this habitat. Also, you can wade in the water and fish right in front of the unit and actually catch fish. Just use some shrimp and you will be sure to get a bite. I caught a baracuda and a puffer fish last time I was there.

We are located right next to a bike path. I have 4 bicycles and a 12ft. tandem Kayak to use as well.

Here is a list of things to do or see in Marathon: Hiking, Biking, Golfing, Tennis, Basketball, Fitness Center, Gym, Shuffleboard, Horseshoes, Flats Boat Fishing, Fly Fishing, Shark Fishing, Deep Sea Fishing, Wildlife Viewing, Shopping, Restaurants, Live Theater, Cinemas, Museums, Sightseeing, Swimming, Snorkeling, SNUBA & Diving, Boating, Sailing, Catamaran Sailing, Waterskiing, Surfing, Windsurfing, Parasailing, Jet Skiing, Shelling, Kayaking, and of coarse, Relaxing. You can Visit Pigeon Key Island, Dolphin Research Center, Keys Island Fishery, Stuffed Pig Restaurant, Key Colony Beach Inn, Sombrero Country Club, Crane Point Museum, 7 Mile Bridge, Sombrereo Reef, Dining at Berdines, Keys Fishery, Stuffed Pig, Cuban and Chinese Restaurants, Playground at Sombrero Beach, Bahia Honda State Park, Key Lime Pie Factory, and more that are all close by.

Amazing view and wonderful condo!

We stayed here for a week in January and we had everything we needed and more. The condo was perfect for our family and was so nice and clean. The owners take pride in their vacation rental and it shows. Thank you Todd and Jamie for providing us with a wonderful place to stay on our vacation.

I have been to the keys many time and this place is awesome. It is so quite and peaceful the only thing you hear are the breezes and distant boat motors. The place is was clean and well furnished . The owners have equipt the place with anything you might need during your stay. The layout of the place makes for great public and private areas.

Awesome location and view

  • 5 of 5

We're first timers to the Keys and couldn't have selected a better place to spend a relaxing week on the ocean. The condo was very clean and fully equipped. The view is truly spectacular. They even had fishing poles. I waded out and didn't expect to catch anything but to my surprise I caught a number of fish. I would recommend using Squid. Our 2 favorite restaurants were Sparky's Landing and Burdines Waterfront both were recommended by some locals we met. It's a must to go to Key West and Duval St. at least once. Don't over pack, sandals, shorts and tee-shirts and a bathing suit is all you need. It's a very relaxing atmosphere everywhere. We are already planning our return trip. Thanks Todd and Jamie for sharing your condo. Joe and Toni

Unwind and Enjoy the View!

  • 5 of 5

The condo suited our needs very well. The layout is great as the living area is very open and has a wonderful full wall of glass to see the palm trees swaying in the breeze next to the ocean. The master bedroom provides the feel of retreating for the evening as the décor differs from then living area plus the master bath is well done. The kayak and bikes are a plus as we did not have the added expense nor did we have to be tied down to a specific day for the rental. Morning coffee with fruit and bagels was great every day on the patio. The view is so good that we never had the impulse to turn the TV on. This is a good location to unwind.

I would recommend eating at Sparky’s on Sadowski (5 minutes away) as the food is good and the local marina atmosphere is great. Savanah’s Sweets (5-10 minutes away) is a great place to get desert as it is a cute place with good eats and I strongly suggest the Pina Colada sundae (non-alcoholic). Spirit snorkeling is a good outfit for going to Sombrero reef. Fishing is good at Sombrero beach and snorkeling has a lot of fish, but the water clarity is not as good as going to Sombrero reef (this is true of all beach access snorkeling).

Todd and Jamie are professional, courteous and attentive people. We use VRBO all the time for our vacations and they have been the best as per the aforementioned and the property being as presented in the listing.

Thanks Todd & Jamie for helping us have a great vacation.

Perfect Honeymoon!!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this condo for our Honeymoon and it couldn't have been more perfect. From the begining to end, Todd and Jamie were easy to get in touch with. The condo was extremely clean and stocked with everything you could want. So many kitchen utensils and appliances. The kayaks and bicycles were and added touch. There is a closet full of everyting from a cooler, tennis raquets, sand toys, fishing poles, etc. The owners even left us a gift certificate to a restaurant for dinner! It was delicious. I loved sitting on the balcony watching the sun rise each moring. There was so much to do in the keys that we didnt get to do everything we wanted. We ate at Keys Island Fisheries, Tarpoon Restaurant, Key Lime Factory, and several others I cant remember. The Turtle Hospital is a must. We rode jet skis, snorkled, went fishing on a chartered boat and the captin let me catch a nurse shark!! It was amazing. One day we went to Key West. One of my favorites was watching all the beatuiful sunsets! Go to seven mile bridge and watch. The weather was perfect at about 82 degrees every day. Bahia (spelling?) Honda State Park is awsome. We found ourselves going there 2 days in a row. Next time we will definately book a vacation here. I kinda hated that we had to come home.

Amazing Ocean Views!

  • 5 of 5

When we first got our reservations for this Coco Plum Beach condo our daughter thought the ocean views must be computer generated but upon arrival in early March we were delighted to find an amazing view of the ocean! This condo was a perfect place to spend a week in the Florida Keys! Jamie and Todd, the owners, were so easy to work with while planning our trip and the condo was kept in tiptop shape with everything clean and in good working order. They provided many extra items that added to a great vacation; snorkeling and fishing gear, a sea kayak, bikes, beach chairs and towels, etc. Our family has already booked another stay next winter and can’t wait to sit on the balcony and enjoy the warm Florida sun!
