I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this house - especially for anyone wanting to fish. It has everything you need:

1. Long lighted boat dock with power and water

2. Easy access to ocean or gulf

3. Bait freezer

4. Commercial ice machine

5. Fish cleaning station with water

6. Room for trailer parking

Property is in a great location - across from Sombrero Beach and Publix is just down the street. Loved the convenience of keyless entry. Lots of thanks to Guy (property mgr), who met us for the walk through (even though he had recently injured his knee). He was very responsive throughout the rental process and extremely quick in returning our deposit. I will DEFINITELY consider renting this property again!

Beautiful Marathon, Fla Rental Home in Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I vacationed with two other couples and this home was perfect for our stay last week. It has three large bedrooms with their own private bathrooms and TVs and there is a 1/4 bathroom in the main living area. The main living area is large and very easily accommodated six adults. It has a seating area with a TV and a large dining table. All TVs are flat screens with cable. The kitchen has plenty of counter space and is well equipped with appliances, dishes, silverware, etc. You will not have to buy any ice! There is a very large ice machine that will definitely fill your coolers! There is a very nice washer and dryer that definitely came in handy. There are two beautiful large patios. One patio has two large tables and chairs and a gas grill. The other large patio has the very nice Jacuzzi/hot tub and pool with lounge chairs and small tables. We paid the extra for the heated pool and it was wonderful. The pool/hot tub area is beautifully lighted and has child proof gates to enter the area. We used it every day! There is a pool company that maintains the pool and hot tub. That was really nice! This home is directly on the inter-coastal water with a beautiful lighted very long cement dock. You can fish right off of the dock! We had a baby manatee come right up into our area! Sombrero Beach is right down the street! This home is located in a beautiful quiet/peaceful area. We felt very safe walking around this area. There are many excellent restaurants/bars in this area and there are two grocery stores and a K-Mart within two miles of this home. We never had any issues or problems. I highly recommend this house if you are looking for a rental in Marathon, Fla. We had a wonderful vacation!

Best Location in Marathon

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfectly located one block from Sombrero Beach, but backing to an expansive lagoon area with private boat dockage. Sombrero is the nicest beach in Marathon and one of the nicest in the Keys. We rented paddle boards and kayaks for our stay and it was a short paddle from our dock to the ocean and Sombrero Beach. We also chartered a fishing boat one day and caught and released four sailfish, as well as barracuda, a small shark and a boatload of yellowtail snapper. The first mate filleted a number of the snapper for us and we prepared them in the well equipped kitchen. Most nights however we enjoyed one of Marathon's many casual waterfront restuarants. Overall a great stay.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to the Keys for the past 5 years or so with two other families. Each year we are intent on finding THE house that we want to come back to. We always have something we wish we could change about the place (boat dock situation, tides, facilities, etc.). This is the first place we have found that we knew right away that this was THE house. We have already booked our vacation for next year. We have three boats in the 22/24 foot range. The dockage was perfect. In the past we have rented a home on a canal and were disappointed with the view as well as no breeze. This place has a perfect location with the backside facing a lagoon to the east so you have the beautiful morning view and have afternoon shade. It was very close to shopping which has also been a pain in the past. The three master bedroom suites were wonderful. The kitchen is huge and we had plenty of room to spread out while preparing our sandwiches/snacks for the day on the boat. The huge mango tree was an unexpected surprise. They were just falling out of the tree and we made several pitchers of mango daiquiris ;) Guy warned us that people would pull up and say they know the owners and were allowed to help themselves to the mangos. And actually, yes this did happen, but there were more falling to the ground than our families could use so we did share ;)

Wonderful atmosphere with great location!

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything that you will need for a great vacation! The property manager, Guy, is prompt with any issues or questions that may arise and he gives a thorough orientation of the property when you arrive. The dock has enough room for three boats if needed. We have two boats (greater than 25 feet each boat) docked without a problem. The rooms are large and very accomodating! Parking is excellent and you are within walking distance to the beach. This makes our second year staying at this house and have already made plans to stay next year at the same time. We love it and plan to keep returning each year!

Great House in Marathon

  • 5 of 5

We travel to the Keys with 3 families every year. So far, this was our best house we have rented.

First off, the location is great. You are so close to everything, especially the grocery store. In the past, it has taken us forever to go grocery shopping. This house was 2 miles up the street to Publix, Winn Dixie, and KMart. If you love the beach, you can walk to Sombrero Beach in about 30 seconds. We heard Reggae music coming from the beach Saturday night when we got there but did not go check it out.

The dockage is the next part that stood out to us. We had 3 boats and they all fit comfortably on the extremely large sea wall. The ladders made it easy to hop in and out of the boats with no problem. We had so much fun every night just hanging out at back watching our kids catch fish and nurse sharks every night. If there is no wind the no-see-ums will eat you alive so bring bug spray. Most nights we had a nice breeze so they did not bother us. But usually they come out about an hour in the morning and an hour in the evening.

The house itself was very spacious. There was plenty of room for all 8 of us. The house had counter space everywhere so storing dry groceries was easy. We actually made one counter a "sandwich station" to make lunches before we went out in the boats:) The house can get a little warm but I understand they are working on getting a new A/C unit. The water pressure for showers was great and there was plenty of hot water for 3 families. It had a nice extra fridge out in the laundry area with a brand new washer and dryer, nice bait freezer, and ice maker. The ice maker had a hard time making enough ice for 3 boats but we survived. There were black ants in the house that we didn't really notice too much at first but got worse as the week went on. But black ants don't bother us so it wasn't an issue. We loved how the doors for entry use a punch code system so it made it convenient not to use a key every time you wanted to leave. In all, it was a fantastic house.

The manager of the house, Guy, met us at the house when we first got there to go through everything. He was extremely nice and communicated well with us. I texted him on our way home to let him know about 2 monogrammed towels I left there and he is putting them in the mail for me!

I highly recommend this house. If this one is not for you then I recommend at least going through Guy Moreau from Tropical Property Rentals. It will be a pleasant experience.

Owner's Response: Hey Missy, Thanks so much for all your kind words and sharing for our future guests. The Owner, who is also a good friend of mine, works real hard to make sure that his guests are as comfortable as possible, and really takes all his guests comments to heart. We are proud that ya all put this home at the " TOP " of your list of places to stay, as that really means allot coming from " Seasoned Vacation Renters " and we hope to see ya all again soon. We are also glad to hear that you too appreciated the grocery stores down the street and our " Five Star " Beach across the street; as these are two features that all of our guests really love too. I guess if your only concern was our Ice Machine having a tough time putting enough ice out for " 3 Boats " daily, we are batting 1000%, as most homes can't do that for one boat :))) We are glad to hear that ya all made it back home safe, and your towels are on the way. Lastly, thank you so much for your kind remarks about Tropical Property Rentals, as we do work real hard to make sure all our guests have the BEST in customer service, because your families vacation is important to us and we understand that ya all are making memories that will last a lifetime! Best Regards, Tropical Property Rentals Inc.
