Guestbook comments from the owner

The condo is very clean, well stocked and has lovely views from the balcony. The oversized shower is a plus. We loved the pool and the tiki bar comes in very handy. Our first trip to the Florida Keys and loved it. Weather was fabulous

Marathon vacation

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Nikki's condo at the Skipjack Marina.The condo was clean and simple and had all the necessities. It was a short walk/drive to the areas beach, restaurants, shopping and attractions. The pool and patio was great and so were the people, loved the afternoons in the sun there. We watched the manatees every evening as they swam in the canal, what a treat. There was a lot of external noise due of the (re)construction and clean up from Irma. A suggestion would be an update to the furniture and flooring. We would like to return again.

Husband hurt by previously broken and not repaired furniture

  • 2 of 5

When we arrived -pulled out 1 of 2 plastic dining chairs that was broken. So my 74 year old husband went to use 1 of 2 barstools and fell thru as it was also broken. Owner knew about it but hadn’t repaired it. 3 days later we still only had 1 working plastic chair and 1 barstool for eating meals. Carpet was dirty. We left early. For $10 more per night at another place we had hot breakfast, clean room and cleaned daily. Just received our damage refund. Was hoping since place wasn’t up to par and my husband got hurt falling thru a chair that owner had not fixed that she would have taken responsibility and given us at least a partial refund - but she did not. Unfortunately, would not recommend.

Very outdated, many things broken, poor views

  • 1 of 5

We knew we were staying after the hurricane and expected some devastating areas, but this condo was not destroyed by the hurricane. The area around us was and it was not disclosed to us that we would not be near the beach, and the closest beach to us was closed for repair. And we were across from the city's dumping site. The condo itself is in dire need of updates and repair. Several chairs were broken (I fell through one of the seats), the towel bar fell off the wall, light bulbs were out, the door lock was corroded, handles broken off pots and pans, very old pullout couch not conducive for sleeping.....and many more inconveniences. I would not recommend staying here until this place is completely renovated.

You get what you pay for

  • 3 of 5

Had to last minute book a place because my other place cancelled at the last second.

Two months after the hurricane so hopefully things get resolved.

The elevators did not work and unit is on the fourth floor. Laundry and WiFi not working so I would contact owner first if this is important. I sometimes travel w my elderly mother and thank god she wasn’t in this trip for walking up four flights

Contacted the owner about broken chairs broken towel rack broken dresser and she said she would address the issues

Carpets were a bit dirty so would hesitate bringing infants to be near the floor

Pool was great and you can still visit a small section of sombrero beach but 95% of the beach is closed off due to damage

Again it was cheap and you get what you pay for, ohh and owner accused me of taking kitchen knives after I left and they were low quality mis matched utensils so had to laugh at that!

Not the greatest experience but you get what you pay for.

Also no parking passes or swim wristbands were anywhere to be found in the apartment and ad says $50 fee if not returned, they were not there

Owner's Response: I am quite shocked by this review. You really should have paid a lot more and stayed at the big hotels. I sent you info about the condo by email telling you that you that you no longer needed the wristbands and the parking passes!! My cleaner has been with me for years and she gets upset when guests take towels, and bother things that don’t belong to them. The knives were there when you arrived obviously you remember them. You were fishing and I thought that maybe you had borrowed them. I never mentioned it again and returned your fully security deposit. Towel rack does need replacing. Carpet gets cleaned 3 times a year and is due at the end of this month. The elevator was totally out of my control and I had no idea it wasn’t working. You know they went through a major hurricane when you booked and obviously it is going to take years to recover. The elevators are being worked on I have been told.

Great location nice condo

  • 4 of 5

This condo was as described in the posting and the pictures were too. Our stay was approximately one month after hurricane Irma. The town was really busy cleaning up a lot of progress was made during our stay. There were restaurants,shopping and some tours open. The pool was damaged in the hurricane but was being worked on. It was a nice view from the balcony in the front of the condo of the canal below with all the boats. I would highly recommend this property and would stay there again.

Car: recommended

Located in the centre of Marathon. This destination is perfect for discovering the beautiful Florida Keys.

One hour's drive from Key West or Key Largo. Marathon is famous for the sportfishing including but not limited to Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi-Mahi and there are numerous places to rent a boat, take a charter or bring your own boat. The resort has a boat ramp and docks (extra charge). Free trailer parking is available.

Numerous things to do include diving, snorkelling kayaking, kite surfing, sailing, golfing, tennis, bicycling, motorcycling or just relaxing...by the resort pool which has a tiki bar and restaurant or at the nearby beautiful sandy Sombero Beach about a mile away.

Wander the docks where you will spot pelicans, various other sea birds, maybe a family of manatees or dolphins!!

Sombrero Beach is a favorite spot for locals and tourists and a short distance from the resort.

One of only 2 Golf Courses in the Florida Keys is located just across the street.
