Why Sherry Broadway chose Marathon

We were looking for a tropical destination that would provide numerous activities for the whole family. We found it at Whimsical Seas. With such busy lives this beach home allows our family to spend quality time together swimming, fishing, grilling by the pool, boating and kayaking in some of the most beautiful water in the world.

What makes this house unique

We have one of the largest yards in the area. Its completely private and fenced. The kids and pets have room to run and plenty of space to park your boat, cars and RV. And the pets love the grassy areas.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Although the weather was less than ideal, we had the best time here as the house/pool/ and dock were so well equipped and pleasant that we felt like we were in Paradise!!!!!

Great location in The Keys and close to the beach. When everyone else in the country was experiencing extreme colds, we were able to kayak and swim in our beautifully private pool. We each had our own space and yet plenty of room to enjoy each others company watching one (of many possible) DVD's.

Oh, and we were even treated to kayaking alongside three manatees in the canal!!! What a treat!! We would return to this property again with no hesitations.

P.S. Sherry was super :-) in answering any questions or requests!

Very clean, great location..

  • 4 of 5

The house was very clean, great location, lots of parking space. Sherry was very responsive and considerate. Only two complaints; 1) the bedroom furniture was too big for the room and it was difficult to move through the room, 2) the trees at the dock shed all over our boat..

Our overall experience was wonderful, very happy with our stay..

Loved the pool and proximity to everything

  • 5 of 5

We were hoping to do a lot of things in the Keys and this property was centrally located to doing it all. Minutes from Bahia Honda State Park, an hour from Key West and 45 minutes to Theatre of the Sea. We enjoyed the pool and fishing from the dock.

The island community of Marathon in the Florida Keys is a tropical getaway for your whole family. It maintains a retro, nautical atmosphere with family-friendly festivals and attractions. Activities include dolphin swims, snorkeling, kayaking, deep sea fishing and boating. Seafood festivals are scheduled throughout the year, and plenty of local restaurants feature fresh catches. Catch your own lobster for dinner during lobster season that runs from August to March. Fishing is ideal off the pristine Sombrero Beach. Leave from our dock with your 2 Person Kayak provided with our property. Visit Crane Point to hike to the preserved home of a 20th century settler family. Don't forget to book a fishing trip with Captain Jay of the C-DrifterII.....bring home your catch for a great fish dinner on the grill at your vacation home. Captain Jay 305-304-5885
