Perfect Rental for two Couples

  • 5 of 5

Reviewer Comments:

The house was very comfortable, clean, and location was convenient and off the beaten path, a bit. Looking at the water from the screened in porch was perfect and area was quiet. There was a walking path less than a block away. House has nice furnishings, TV and appliances but kitchen could have been better stocked and grill too scuzzy to use. Under cover parking was convenient but outside furniture needed some repairs. Agents were great and we were able to get in 3 hours early but 9AM is hard for exiting. Nice area and plenty to do and places to eat.I would recommend the house for 2 couples with the layout still a lot of privacy or a small family. Fans in each room were great, but directions for appliances could be put in a better place for renters. We did not get information for recycling but a neighbor answered our questions. On one side two barking dogs but house for sale hopefully dogs will go. Peaceful, comfortable and good views and felt safe in Marathon during our stay.

Charming Key Lime Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I just stayed in the Key Lime Cottage for a week. It was fantastic. We were able to bring our boat and dock it right in the back and there was plenty of parking for several vehicles and our boat trailer. The street is a dead end so it is very quiet and safe. It was within minutes to many excellent restaurants, shops, and marinas. The kitchen is well furnished and we loved cooking our fresh catch on the inside downdraft grill. We loved how open the floor plan is and how we could just keep the sliders and windows open all day and night for a wonderful tropical breeze! Beds are very comfortable and furniture ver unique. We will be going back to this house! Thank you!

DIVING Soft breezes and calm waters also make summer a prime time for diving and snorkeling, and for many, no time is better than the start of lobster season in mid-summer. Coral ledges in the bay just off the property are popular spots for lobster dives. The Marathon area features a number of prime dive spots. Coffins Patch stretches for over a mile with water depths of 10 to 30 feet. Sombrero Reef is a spur reef with a wide variety of coral formations, colorful fish at depths of 2 to 25 feet, and mooring for boats.
