About Brad Levine
Our entire family is close and we enjoy spending our holidays together. This house provides us with plenty of space and is perfect big dinners and great conversation. And if you like the sun and to fish - we also have a home in Key Largo which is spectacular VRBO 390007 and a home in Montana VRBO 304457.
Brad Levine purchased this Estate in 2012
Why Brad Levine chose Marathon Shores
We live in Florida and fell in love with the Keys. We have 2 young children and very large family and this home is large enough for all of us - even providing a few places to hide. It's just perfect. We hope you'll love it just as much as we do.
What makes this Estate unique
Whether skiing, fishing or just reading a book - our home provides the warm island relaxing feel needed when on vacation. You'll never want leave. It's just GREAT.

Superb location and spacious accommodations.
We were warned that all was not up to owner standards because of hurricane, but we found the house very family friendly, view outstanding and the sandy beach fabulous! I can only imagine how great it will be when everything is repaired.
Relaxing family vacation
There were 14 of us, ages 9-86, that stayed here the week of July 4th. The property was spacious, with plenty of activities for all. The kids swam every day and the canoes/kayaks were a hit. Paddling across the lagoon was a little gross (it was filled with plant and garbage debris because the boom was broken), but once past, everything was beautiful. The water was clear and shallow so the kids could stand and snorkel (I recommend aqua shoes because the bottom is mushy). The views are amazing! We enjoyed coffee every morning by the water and spent most evenings relaxing or fishing under the big mangrove tree. The location is perfect, close to K-Mart and Publix, a 25-min drive to Bahia Honda, and an hour from Key West. There are several restaurants in the area but the kitchen is well-stocked so we mostly took turns cooking (I did bring an electric griddle for making breakfast). There is no pantry but there is ample storage on the exterior side of the kitchen island.
The negatives: The room downstairs smelled horribly of mildew when we arrived. We bought an air freshener and 4 boxes of baking soda. By the time my brother arrived two days later, the odor was minimal. We left the supplies in the room so hopefully the owners will take notice and replenish before the next guest, but I suggest you bring baking soda and/or charcoal to help alleviate the overwhelming odor.
Our main issue was the plumbing in the cottage. The toilet backed up into the shower one night. We called the after-hours number but they were unable to reach a plumber. When the plumber came the next morning, he said it was a problem management had been aware of before we arrived, but wanted to wait until after our stay to fix it. This was upsetting because we were given no notification of the issue. Had we known, we could've made sure the toilet was used only for emergencies. At any rate, the plumber did what he could, mentioning that he would have to return after our stay. We asked him to fix a running toilet in the main house (the water was turned off when we arrived, indicating management knew of this issue, too). After getting no response from management, we called Debbie's Cleaning Service on our own to clean and sanitize the cottage bathroom. Debbie was amazing! She came right away and apologized for the inconvenience. She was so kind and helpful! Luckily, we had no other issues and aside from those mentioned, we enjoyed our stay and would rent the property again.
Fantastic property in the perfect location
This is a fantastic spot in marathon. If you have a boat it is next to a channel on the Atlantic side. The dock is in its own protected cove.
The property is beautiful. There is a main house and a guest house. Both are appointed well and have been renovated. We were two families with lots of kids and one room didn't get used until my dad visited for 2 nights.
We had a great time. Fish all day. Clean our dolphin/tuna and soak in the pool until dinner time.
I would recommend this property to anybody and everybody.
Like a private family resort...
The house was excellent! We all loved it. The view is amazing. There is so much outdoor space for families to be active and enough covered space for outdoor fun on a rainy afternoon. The home has all essentials plus some. The owner is great, super nice guy. dishwasher was broken upon arrival, immediately a new one was installed. Things like that happen in busy properties like this. It was no problem because he cared about our experience and his actions proved that. I cannot say enough good things about this place. It is truly one of a kind. By the way, the cabana bathroom is awesome... Thanks
Incredible Vacation Home!
This home is incredible! From the moment we arrived it was more than we could of imagined. Feels extremely private and a tucked away piece of paradise. We vacationed with our two kids (6 & 9years old) and 2 other couples. We brought our boat to keep there also. Minutes away from the grocery store and anything you need. The rooms and kitchen were perfect. The best part was defiantly enjoying the outside. The hammock, patio, and beach are where we gathered and spent most of our time together. Gorgeous breeze in the evenings. I recommend this vacation home to anyone. We look forward to coming back and starting a family tradition with our family.
Beautiful vacation home
Small family reunion - 6 adults, 7 kids 5yrs - 15yrs. Space is very comfortable - fishing off the dock, hammock swaying in the breeze, ocean side fire pit at night for s'mores. Open kitchen/living space - plenty of room for everyone. Property managers were very attentive. Centrally located in the Keys.
The Marathon provides the best of the Keys. You are close enough to Key West for day trip, you have the best fishing of any Key due to the currents flows, and the diving is second to none. We are also close to Pennekamp if a day trip there is desired.
The home is absolutely perfect for family reunions and couples looking to just get away.
