The home is open, bright, and warm. Sectional sofa is comfortable for watching Netflix movies on a high definition 52 inch flat screen T.V. with surround sound.

Inquire about nearby homes which is also available for rental. Rental License PLR00336.

Brand new central AC installed June 2015 and updated concrete Dock.

Although Marathon is located about midway on the keys chain, it has just about anything you would need during your stay, including marathon airport (charter flights from Miami) and hospital in case you need medical attention during your stay. Key west is just a 45 minutes away by car. Charter fishing service is also available from your dock. One of the best surprises when i bought this home was Sombrero Beach. This beach is only 5 minutes away by car and maybe 15 minute bike ride. Sombrero Beach is currently under repair from damage from Hurricane Irma, but when its back it will have the same and more, everything you could ask for in a beach. White sand, coconut palms, private clean bathrooms, two volleyball courts, children play area with grass, barbecue grills and picnic tables, and the beautiful view of the ocean. My teen (adult now) use to love marathon community park, which has its own X-tream skateboard park . This park has four tennis courts, a tennis wall, a combination hockey/basketball court (3 courts), two little league fields, and two soccer fields. There is also, two shuffleboard courts, two bocce ball courts, a batting cage, concession stand, amphitheater, picnic areas, and restrooms. Also, your teen will love to try out the cable wake boarding park! If you want to take a dip in a pool just go to sunset grill and raw bar where they have one of the largest pool in the keys overlooking the ocean at the seven mile bridge (free). Watch the sunset from here while at the bar listening to margaritaville. Enjoy some of the best fishing and diving available in the world. Sombrero reef is 4.5 miles away from your dock. It offers a spectacular reef and is just minutes away by boat ride. The seven mile bridge is probably the premiere location for the greatest game fish in Florida waters, the tarpon. The best part is that you will get top quality at a rate that can’t be beaten. Look us up in Facebook. Do a search for Mariella Marathon Keys.

About The Owner

Hello Prospective Guests, I myself am a frequent user of VRBO/Home Away. Have used it many times during our annual ski vacation trips. VRBO never failed me so now it is my turn to rent to people just like me. I take pride knowing I go the extra mile in keeping every single renter happy. If there are any un-expected issues, I put the renter first that is just the way I would want to be treated. Hope you love my place as much as I do!

Why The Owner chose Marathon

THe Florida Keys is truly a place to enjoy the great outdoors. It all starts with the drive from Miami (2 hrs) . Do it at day light. When you start getting closer to Marathon, the ocean water begans turning clear turquoise and you know you have reached the Florida Keys. Marathon has the best of both worlds, the convenience of facilities that we are use to having (stores, fast food, hospital, etc) while keeping with the laid back feel of the Florida Keys. Why this property: Well because I love it and it shows. I take great joy in knowing that my guest leave happy, filled with great memories.

What makes this house unique

My Place is modern and at the same time comfortable and has that keys feel. It has an open atmosphere with two large sliding glass doors overlooking the large furnished balcony. The balcony overlooks the canal and coconut palm trees. The white curtains in the balcony give you a true resort feel. The two staircase offer convenience to the front of the home as well as the back and the best thing is that this is a house on a large lot so you have your privacy. The home also has a new chain link fence giving you peace of mind that outdoor toys are secure (although not needed, its very safe here) and I have recently updated the concrete dock. It's totally beautiful.

This is an absolutely beautiful home! Mariella has thought of everything! We have vacationed in Marathon many years, and I have never stayed in a house that was this well appointed. It is very modern and clean. She made sure we had beach towels, nice beach chairs, sand toys, even a beach bag! There were plenty of bath towels and washcloths, and she even had board games/books that weren't outdated. The upstairs balcony was perfect to drink coffee on in the morning and hang out on at night. The kids loved the hammock, the kayaks and being able to walk into town. We had a manatee visit one afternoon, and an iguana visited daily. Mariella checked in with us and was available when I had a few questions. We were so impressed, that we reserved it for next year while on our drive home to the airport!

Thank you for helping us have a great vacation, Mariella!

It was very beachy and made us feel at home. Everything was well kept and the view was gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

The home was very nice, clean, and well kept. It had everything we could ask for. Being on the canal, it had kayaks and a floating dock. The covered deck was amazing when it was very hot outside because the breeze came right through. Under the deck was great with a ping pong table and lounge chairs. The hammock was perfect, and a few people took some naps during the day on it. The house made us feel right at home and it was perfect for a home in the Keys. 10/10!

Wonderful house with everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

We were concerned about vacationing in the Keys this year since Irma devastated so much of the area. Aside from the debris on the roadside it was an awesome visit. The house was perfect. Thank you Mariella for your willingness to work with us on such short notice.

Beautiful property, great owner!

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. The property was beautiful and well maintained. Even after the hurricane. Mariella was very accommodating and very informative and made our stay that much better. We are planning to stay here again next year. Can't wait to come back.
