Pool / Spa
Cozy house close to Sombrero Beach
Our family of five stayed here in April 2018 and had a very good experience. We were initially concerned because when we booked, there weren't any reviews since Hurricane Irma and we weren't sure how area of the keys was affected. You can definitely see the effects of the hurricane in the Marathon area, but the businesses are coming back and sombrero beach (and this house included) are in really good shape. If you are hesitant... don't be... this part of the Keys is in good shape and needs the tourist business.
The house itself was very nice. We enjoyed:
* Having our own pool
* Grilling and cooking meals and being close to a grocery store. In general , the location is really good if you want to venture out and hit locations in the upper, middle and lower keys during your visit.
* Being able to walk to Sombrero Beach... which is a small, but very nice sandy beach. (Unusual for the keys.) With the damage to Bahia Honda, I think this is the best beach in the Keys.
* DirectTV with plenty of channels in the family room and master bedroom.
* The rental company was friendly and helpful.
* We didn't rent a boat, but there is a nice dock if that's your thing.
* The tiki hut patio is pretty nice
Things that were fine, but not super awesome:
* There is a little sliver of ocean view from the top floor master bedroom, but view isn't the best feature of this house.
* My teenage kids were a little frustrated with the relatively slow DSL internet. Personally, I don't go to the Keys planning to spend a bunch of time on the internet, so this wasn't a big deal to me.
Bottom line is that this was a nice place to stay and worked well for our family of 5. I would definitely go back.
Your casual retreat from it all!
If you are looking for a casual, clean home to relax on a balcony, dine overlooking a pool and canal, walk 12 minutes to a lovely beach or tie up your boat and grill poolside, this is the place for you. The upstairs master bedroom has its own balcony facing the sunrise, the 2 story kitchen, dining and living room are very comfortable. there were 4 of us and plenty of space to find of one's own. The place sleeps six and also would not feel tight. We especially loved the dining balcony off the living room overlooking the pool a great place for breakfast or dinner. We used the tiki hut all day, it provides great sun protection with lots of room for 4 lounge chairs and 4 upright chairs. The orientation of the house allows for breezes through the house, we never turned on the AC. The place is clean, kitchen well-equiped and a large gas grill is provided. Two people can easily work in the kitchen together, and an addtional on the other side of the island. A large grocercy store is a 5 minute drive. Sombreo beach is a 12 minute walk and both sunrises and sunsets can be seen from it during february. The office handling the property is professional and lovely. Adjacent neighbors were quiet and the street is lined with nice vaction and permanent homes. marathon Key felt like a "step-up" from Keys farther north. Key west is an hour drive south.
Great location and wonderful house
Great location! Enjoyed it all!
Great house perfect size for us dock and pool were great additions The beds were very comfortable
The area where the house was a great central location close to many great restaurants and grocery is 3 minutes down the street and great beach within walking distance. We took a boat and got through the canals to open channels in about 15-20 minutes. We saw lots of manatee and even caught a few fish off our dock
Goegeous home on the canal!
This was our fourth trip to the Keys...by far, the BEST place we've stayed! Beautiful private setting on one of the canals, lots of wildlife...in particular, a manatee showed up one evening and hung out for quite awhile. Plenty of iguanas, and of course pelicans when cleaning fish. VERY comfortable accomodations, also. We will be back next year for sure!
Took 2 good friends to the keys for their first time. This house made the trip especially great and memorable. It is totally updated with top of the line appointments, such as granite counter tops, stainless appliances and a master bath shower to die for! Spacious and very clean with comfy furniture and beds. We enjoyed breakfast on the covered deck every morning and evenings floating in the pool with a drink on our chair inflatables we picked up at KMart, right up the street. Walked to beautiful Sombrero beach everyday. This house is exceptionally well maintained and has everything you need to make a perfect vacation ! Would highly recommend to anyone and hope to go back again.
Great area for spear fishing, fishing, scuba diving. Perfect place for beach lovers or boaters. Swim with dolphins very close by. Manatees are often spotted in our canals as well as inguanas and other beautiful wildlife!
