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

Great location and price!

  • 4 of 5

The location was great and central to other keys and activities on Marathon, The pool and bar were nice and have pizza close is always a plus.

I'm sure there are likely nicer places around but this place can not be beat for the price!

Great Price on Welcoming Property

  • 4 of 5

I do not feel that the lower rated reviews are particularly fair. This rental is extremely affordable for the Keys and this needs to be taken into account. I did not pay $250 plus per night and would therefore rate this property on the nightly rate and what would be expected at this rate.

I found the condo to be clean, comfortable, quiet and in a great location. I did not notice any particular dirt on the carpet or anywhere else. The furniture is not new but totally functional, the bed is very comfortable (and I'm picky) and the host is efficient and easy to work with. All basic items for cooking, laundry, and linens are to be found. There are also 2 new flat screen TV's in the unit which are not shown in the pictures. The complex has a large sparkling clean pool and onsite bar/restaurant. It was a peaceful place even though I was there over a holiday weekend. I found a lot of value in this rental based on the price point, and I have stayed in luxury rentals as well. This place was perfect for my needs and is truly represented in the photographs. I would most definitely stay here again and was very satisfied with everything.

Just a right place for a long weekend in the Keys. Condo has all the basics you will need. Easy parking and access to the unit. Quiet neighborhood.

Disappointed

  • 1 of 5

After reading some of these reviews I thought I must have been at a different place. Not so. It is in a very good location, close to everything in Marathon. It has a nice view from the entrance overlooking the canal and numerous yachts. But the unit needs major upgrading and a thorough cleaning. Carpet is shot. Balcony is in shambles. Quarter size hole in entry door. A/C unit in B/R is "roughed" in, as well as some light fixtures. Parking is okay unless you come back later than 9PM in which case you will probably need to walk a ways. I was in unit 421. Definitely would not say again.

Marathon was Marvelous - this condo, not so much

  • 3 of 5

First trip to the Keys and, overall, enjoyed the trip. Marathon seems less touristy than most of the other places along the way.

Clearly, this place has seen better days. Most of the place was pretty worn and the carpet was filthy. We had to keep shoes on to keep our feet clean. There was even an open electrical box with wires hanging out.

This is a private unit in a resort that is currently under renovation. It looks like a step in the right direction but trying to relax in the middle of a construction project was challenging at times. Resort amenities were nominal with the pool as the central point. We were there the week the tennis court was converted to a parking lot and so leave your racquet at home.

Fortunately, we did not spend all that much time at the condo. The weather was perfect for the week and we did our best to stay out as much as possible.

Given the size of the place, it would not take much to make improve the place. A good cleaning, some fresh paint and new flooring is all that is needed. Maybe if they actually used the "cleaning fee" they collect for it stated purpose, my review would be much better.

Owner's Response: Thankyou for your feedback which I have just received from your visit in March! The condo has a complete spring clean at the end of March and end September. The carpets are professionally cleaned. The electrical wires you were referring to is in fact the cable line for the tv!! The resort has had a complete overhaul and I'm sorry that some work was going on while you were there. There are still tennis courts at the resort and a new restaurant has just opened. Nikki

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.
