About Denise Word

Welcome to Paradise! After living 28 years in the 'frozen North,' I moved to the Keys in 2006. I now live in Miami and have this fully-equipped spacious 3 bedroom condo for you to love as much as I do!

Denise Word purchased this condo in 1999

Why Denise Word chose Marathon

Marathon is halfway between Key Largo and Key West - a perfect spot in the Florida Keys! It has all of the appeal with a little slower, more relaxing pace... but you can scuba dive or go deep sea fishing or sunbath or swim with dolphins or see a movie... your choice!

What makes this condo unique

Only two miles from the Seven Mile Bridge, it is common to see a wide variety of sea life in the ocean below. Dining is terrific and you can choose to eat on a picnic table or at a 5-star restaurant! And the sunsets are spectacular... God paints His masterpiece every night!

Fabulous time at the Faro Blanco Condo with my family

  • 5 of 5

I had a great time with my family at this condo. It is very large and spacious so it provides the space for a large family like mine. It was great having two full baths, the washer and dryer and the screened in porch! We were able to enjoy the day at the pool next door at the Hyatt and watch the sunset. There is plenty of parking, kitchen was well stocked which was great as we cooked family meals. Fabulous place to vacation to, clean and quiet property.

Relaxing week in Marathon

  • 5 of 5

Big condo with lots of room for entertaining. The pool use at the hotel was an added bonus. Fishing off the back beach afforded us the opportunity to catch some dinner. Ideal location for my daughter and her bridesmaids. I would highly recommend this property.

Good value for the price, but definitely a bit dated

  • 3 of 5

the condo is quite comfortable and very spacious an excellent value compared to many places in the keys . But if you want easy access to a beach, and a view of the ocean, this is not the place for you. Also, remember to bring your own soap, dish washing detergent and laundry detergent. And I think describing it as quiet as a bit of a stretch as it is just 50 feet away from Highway one.

Owner's Response: Brad, thanks for your candid remarks. I am hoping that the January 2015 opening of the beautiful Hyatt Hotel next door will boost business for me and I will be able to do some upgrades, but for now I'm happy you found it spacious and comfortable. Thanks for your review!

Great space. Great Location. Best Vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed in Marathon many times over the years and this is definitely our favorite condo/location. We have actually stayed in one of these condos before and were excited to see this one available. The space is fabulous. Plenty of room, private and shared areas are all spacious, and the enclosed patio is also huge. Lots of towels and sheets - no washcloths though, so bring your own or the little shower scrubbies :-) Location can't be beat for boating/diving/lobstering/eating/shopping etc. This little place called Burdines is not far and has the BEST fresh fish sandwiches you will ever want to eat and I don't even eat fish sandwiches - or I had never been tempted to do so before anyway. There were a couple of small things that needed repair and the owner was very responsive. She is very helpful and willing to communicate with the renters. There was no internet, which surprised us because 'everyone' has internet, right? But this is more of a private condo, not a hotel or timeshare so that shouldn't be expected anyway. We stayed so busy that we didn't really use the internet or TV much. The owner said she will be getting internet access there in the future. Washer/drier is a huge benefit when out swimming and boating every day as is the full kitchen. The Hyatt hotel pools are accessible and very nice although I miss the old HUGE pool that used to be there before the Hyatt was built there. We will definitely be returning and will rent this condo again in the future rather than even another one in the same building simply because of the owner's willingness to be involved and her desire for tenants to have a great time there. I would definitely recommend this rental!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review! I so appreciate knowing about any imperfections - there will be washcloths and Internet there ASAP!! I love my condo in the Keys and hope that all my guests enjoy it and all of the great things in Marathon as much as I do... (I had forgotten about Burdines - will mention to future folks!) I truly look forward to hearing from you again!

Beautiful, Perfect Location, Very spacious

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay. The condo is bigger than it appears in the photos and is even more beautiful. The location is great, it's very convenient for docking your boat. I loved it and I will be back.

Spacious, clean and perfect location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for the 4th of July extended weekend. The condo was very spacious and clean. It was well equipped with the exception of no blow dryer, no starter dish soap or cleaning supplies. We enjoyed the boat races at the marina just steps away, that was an added bonus, night fishing from the marina, hanging out at the jetty listening to the waves and enjoying the moonlight and had lots of fun at the resort pool. We walked to the turtle hospital (must visit) and enjoyed several great sea food waterfront places to eat near by. Over all a great place to enjoy the keys.
