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.

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.

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! 😍

Our stay was everything we expected and a little more!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, couldn't ask for a better location if you're bringing your own boat! House was very spacious and comfortably accommodated our party of 8. Amenities were as described and accesible. Would definitely like to stay here again on our next trip to Marathon! Shawn the owner was a wealth of information and very helpful with all of our many questions :))

Great privacy with large central living area

  • 4 of 5

Shawn and Valerie are very nice owner/managers. They tended promptly to our every need. That every bedroom has its own bath is great for multiple couples traveling together. This was our second stay at this particular home. Last visit was springtime and no one complained about anything, and the fishing from the dock was tremendous! This time was heat of summer and there were two complaints; the smallest of the rooms has a window unit a/c that had trouble keeping the room cool, and the fishing from the dock out back was not as good as expected being essentially on the Atlantic.

Great Place To Stay

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay in Marathon. Plenty of room for a large group, and plenty of room for multiple boats. House is great.
