About Mike or Patti Rhine

My husband and I fell in love with the Keys while visiting from Decatur Texas, in 2010. We looked for the perfect vacation home for our family for nearly a year. Marathon is a great community, with wonderful friendly people. We love the fishing! or should I say 'catching' We are now proud to say that we are full time residents of Marathon, and are here to help you with any of your needs.

Mike or Patti Rhine purchased this House in 2012

Why Mike or Patti Rhine chose Marathon Shores

We just purchased this delightful home in August of 2012. We looked for nearly a year for the perfect ocean front home. Simple yet very comfortable, The Lobster House is one you will be sure to return to. Tucked away in a very quiet safe Marathon neighborhood, you can walk or ride your bike to he local fish market or Walgreens. The beautiful and famous Sombrero Beach is just minutes away. We love the home for the perfect ocean view, never late afternoon sun in our windows, yet a beautiful sunset off to the right. Located just south of the Vaca Cut, you can be in the Gulf of Mexico in just minutes. The perfect location, and the perfect house for the Rhine family!

What makes this House unique

Easy access to the Gulf of Mexico, in just minutes. Beautiful view of Key Colony and the open ocean Great central location in Marathon

                                                                      We especially enjoyed the expansive views while sitting in the hot tub.

                                                                      Thank you Mike & Patti again,

                                                                      Hope to stay again. Mike & Lauri Fair

                                                                      Raymond S.

                                                                      It is the perfect house and location. I was able to park my triple axel trailer in the front of house with no problem and still park a dodge 2500 truck and a car. Beds are comfortable and view is amazing. Five stars from this satisfied family.

                                                                      Incredible stay!

                                                                      This house was pefectly situated to enjoy all of the Keys! We are going to miss the incredible and peaceful ocean views from the deck. The Rhines were great and took care of any concerns immediately. We would definitely return.
