Car: Necessary

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.
