What makes this villa unique

The roof top hot tub not only has a fantastic view of the gulf but its unique location places you high above and virtually out of reach of those little biting insects that flourish on the ground floor and are indigenous to the Keyes.

Appears to be very new and well kept.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay despite the cold later in the week. The house was very well stocked with kitchen supplies, towels,etc. The included membership in the Cabana Beach club is definitely a plus.Had a small issue with the grill and it was promptly taken care of.

Highly recommended.

Couldn't Be Better

  • 5 of 5

Spent one week with my wife, son, daughter in-law and 3 year old grand son at this property and had the time of our lives. Besides all the attractions and activities its amenities were first rate in every way, from the roof top deck with spectacular views and a hot tub, to the community pool. The house itself is beautiful and very well furnished and decorated. The bedrooms are all placed nicely around the house so as to provide a good deal of privacy and quiet while the rest of the house is being fully utilized and lived in by the other guests. The A/C unit worked perfectly which was needed to provide relief during the day and a good nights sleep as this was an extremely hot week week in August. The house is very well stocked with basic supplies in the kitchen and more than enough beach towels to use at the pool and beaches. Brett who was there to great us on our arrival could not have been any nicer or of any more help and was just a phone call away ready to fix any problems or answer any questions, We will not have to look for any other properties on our next stay in Marathon or any where else in the middle keys for that matter as we have found everything we could want right here.

Beautiful home, great view, and awesome pool club perk!

  • 5 of 5

Sadly just left this wonderful home. The owners have thought of everything and you will feel like you are at home. You can just relax and enjoy! Helpful provisions and comfy furniture & beds.

We spent the last two days enjoying the club pool and beach that is complimentary with the rental. It's a very short walk to the marina which our children enjoyed exploring. They saw an octopus, nurse shark, parrot fish and an eel in the area.

Owners were very helpful planning and with local recommendations as well.

Had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfect for family fun! Stocked with necessities, all you need to bring is clothes and food!.We rented kayaks and they delivered them right to our door and we kayaked off the dock and saw a huge turtle, some small sharks and sting rays. We went fishing on the Lady Marathon and highly recommend that. We took a day trip to Key West, the list goes on. The house is a perfect location to get anywhere you want to go!

The house was great, fully equipped and nicely furnished

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this house and in Marathon. The house was super comfortable, nicely furnished and 3 full bedrooms and 3 baths with an elevator and all the conveniences. The beds were really comfy as well. Loved the added touch of supplying nice beach towels as well. The laundry was great to have to keep up on towels and clothes during the week. Loved that the spice cabinet was well stocked too. The only disappointment was the pool that we thought was attached to the house but it was actually a community pool and not very clean(and cold). While there was no beach near us, we totally enjoyed fishing off of the dock and shore behind the house. We didn't realize just how small Marathon and that it is largely a retirement community so there was not a lot to do besides relaxing, fishing and a driving to the beach so we also enjoyed a day trip to Key West. All the more reason we enjoyed the house so much. Loved the upper deck to enjoy sunbathing and the hot tub and elevator were nice additions, although we didn't use them much. We had a couple of good dinners/happy hour at the Ale House. Highly recommend Publix Market over the competitor (much better quality of food and selection).Overall, it was a great time and we are new believers in the VRBO vacation concept. We will definitely do it again as it was simple to book, easy to navigate and the owners and son Scott were very helpful with information. I highly recommend this property for a relaxing time with nice furnishings as long as you have car to get around.
