Great location & even better hosts!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I fell in love with the house and the location. We could not have asked for better hosts! They went above and beyond on multiple occasions to not only share their piece of paradise, but they made sure we felt like it was our own for a week! The dock was perfect for a boat and the canal was full of life! My son and daughter both caught plenty of fish right off the dock and even hooked a tarpon on the first day! The house layout was perfect, with a large open in area in the middle of the house and then a bedroom and bathroom on each of the four corners.

Thanks again Shawn & Valerie! Hope to see you both again in the near future.

This house was in the perfect location on Marathon. The owners were so nice and it made our vacation wonderful. The house came with all kitchen utensils very spacious with an open floor plan. We are definitely going to be staying here again in the future

Fantastic Tropical Getaway -

  • 5 of 5

Our friends and family stayed for a week in April at this property . The weather was perfect, only a little wind. We filled the freezer with snapper and mahi-mahi , because the location of this house is so close to ocean, we had plenty of time to fish. Our group filled all four bedrooms and the house still felt large. I like that each room was quiet. Would most certainly return.

Atlantic Beach, FL


  • 5 of 5

Can't beat the location. House was spacious, clean, and well equipped. Two choices for docking the boat--right out back on the canal, or on the side of the house in well protected area. Boating the open ocean in 30 seconds. Back patio is a great place to have dinner and enjoy the sun going down. Had some bad luck with weather on our trip, but still lots to do--great restaurants around, Sea Turtle Hospital, Marathon Community Theater to see a first run movie in a throwback theater.

Home away from home- only better!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in quite a few homes over the years, but this one surpassed them all! Shawn and Valerie made us feel like we were family friends.

From the moment we walked in the door, we felt their hospitality- From local treats and a personal note on the table to cold beverages in the fridge, we appreciated it all.

They were quick to respond to any questions, and fulfilled any requests we had.

It was nice to have so many of the conveniences of home (all those little things you take for granted- condiments in the fridge, an assortment of spices for cooking, clean beach towels at our disposal, even a cooler for a day on the water).

Thank you for a great trip- our only "complaint" is that we couldn't stay longer! 😍
