Great location, helpful owners, beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo far exceeded my expectations. Owners were very helpful and returned emails quickly, including suggestions for restaurants. Great location within walking distance of a fabulous restaurant. The condo has a beautiful view, nice dock and is very peaceful. There is outside seating on both floors which makes for a relaxing cup of coffee while the sun rises or sets. Marathon is a great island, peaceful yet close enough that you can drive to key west. We enjoyed kayaking, the beach, turtle hospital and crane sanctuary. Will definitely stay here again.

Lovely Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

My Husband, Daughter and I just returned from a lovely long weekend getaway at Sweethaven South. This is a very nice condo complex right on and/or near the water with beautiful views of the gorgeous sunsets. We used the weekend to explore the Keys so this location in Marathon was perfect. The place was very clean and well supplied with most everything we needed - especially in the kitchen. We cooked a couple of our meals at the Condo and used the grill both times. Felt just like home!! We did not use the pool, but it was beautiful and nicely kept. There were plenty of towels, beach towels, and beach chairs at our disposal. We had no problems with either the cable or internet. It really was a nice vacation and will certainly think about coming back here should the opportunity arise to visit the Keys again. The owners were a great help and responded very promptly to all my emails. Thank you so much for such a nice vacation!! :)

Fantastic Condo

  • 5 of 5

This place is great. The condo is very comfortable and the location is very convenient to the beach (about 3 miles), state parks, stores and restaurants. The balcony is excellent for watching the sun rise. The condo has everything you would need for cooking, etc. The only thing you need to purchase on arrival is soap (assuming you bring your own shampoo, etc) We highly recommend this place and would not hesitate to rent it again if we go back to Marathon. Good value for the money. The owners are very easy to work and very quick to respond to our emails with questions. Marathon is more "laid back" than Key West, so if you are looking for a relaxing area for vacation, this is the place.

Very nice condo

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week in Sweethaven South. I love the condo complex - there are just 4 condos per building and 10 buildings altogether in 2 separate, but aligned condo associations. The landscaping is lovely; the pool was very large, clean and we used it daily. We also fished from the dock and went down most evenings to admire the lovely sunset. The condo is well furnished and has oodles of charm with the nice decorative touches. We love the convienence of cooking some of our own meals and being able to wash and dry a small load of laundry when needed. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. Above all, it was very clean and we greatly appreciated that. Thanks for providing such a nice place to stay.

Quiet, Relaxing and Convenient!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this unit for 8 days. We had our 14 year old granddaughter with us. Upon arrival, we opened the multiple sliding doors and welcomed the fresh ocean air in! The unit was clean and comfortable with almost all of the things we needed, minus a few toiletries, which was no big deal as we brought our own. There were gorgeous views of the Gulf of Mexico from the 2nd and 3rd floor balconies. There are stairs to the unit, as the ground "floor" is the parking area. The kitchen was well appointed--had all the dishes we needed and all of the cooking utensils as well. There is a washer and dryer in the kitchen closet, nice for keeping up with the laundry! We did not use the grill, but it was available and we did not use the dockage. The pool was nice and rarely had anyone else in it. This is in a small condo complex and all of the residents/guests that we ran into were very friendly. The dumpsters were very close to the unit-nice for taking care of the trash, but sometimes a little loud--fortunately never early in the morning! The condo is well located in Marathon, close to the grocery and Kmart, an easy drive to Islamorada. We went to the Dolphin Research Center and Crane Point, both nice outings. On the couple of days that it rained, we were still able to sit outside, as the balconies had nice wide roofs over them. The beds were comfortable, there were plenty of towels, including some beach towels. There were some beach chairs and all of the decks had chairs. The cable and internet were reliable. All in all, it was a very comfortable, homey atmosphere and we enjoyed it. I would highly recommend this property unless you are looking for uber luxury! This is truly a home.
