About James & Leigh Ann DeGirolano

We first came to the Keys in 2010 and fell in love with the island of Marathon and the beautiful beaches; Sombrero & Bahia Honda State Park. We quickly decided that we wanted to be a part of this community.

James & Leigh Ann DeGirolano purchased this house in 2011

Why James & Leigh Ann DeGirolano chose Marathon Shores

We chose Marathon Key because of it's beauty and its not far from the excitement of Key West and Miami, yet far enough to provide a relaxing private tropical tranquility!

What makes this house unique

Our spacious home is relaxing, comfortable and has a beautiful 14' x 28' salt water pool with a heater/chiller, our favorite place to hang out after a great day at the beach. We are very close to many museums, great restaurants, water sports and many other activities. We are located in the heart of the Keys!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Great place for couples as it has two master bedrooms with on suite bathrooms on opposite sides of the house. The house had one of the best-appointed kitchen in houses we have rented, a lot of different spices and pantry staples. The pool had an issue with the heater but the owner was on it the second she was made aware and the problems was resolved very quickly. The house is centrally located in Marathon many restaurants, bars and beaches close by. Wish you could get to the pool area from the back of the house but not that big of a deal. We all had a great time. I would recommend this property.

Great Home in a Central Florida Keys Location

  • 4 of 5

The home was very nice, well maintained and surely stocked for all of your needs. Located nicely on Marathon and central in the Keys. Owners are very responsive and involved with their investment. Pool was great and clean. Ready for use, and left immaculate, even down to the microwave. 15 minutes to Bahai, less than one hour to Key West, and under 10 minutes to Sombrero Beach. The surrounding neighborhood could use some cleaning up, and the feelings of more security. But, it didn't take away from the trip. Great time.

The Best!

  • 5 of 5

Great Rental and wonderful hosts. Loved the pool and screened- in porch. The two suites offered excellent privacy for each couple, but there is lots of room to socialize, and a huge kitchen to cook the local catch. We had a shrimp boil one night. Marathon is a good midway point in the keys to explore north and south. Dont miss the Stuffed Pig for breakfast, and The Dry Tortugas day trip from Key West.. Thank you James and Leigh Ann!

Super Great Rental!

  • 5 of 5

This is the most beautiful home, homey, spacious, and updated! The appliances spoke volumes in that the owners strive to provide the best for their renters. If we needed something, we searched and found it. They've thought of everything! The pool was amazing, we loved the backyard! We grilled and ate outside one day and truly felt like kings. The location of the home was super easy to find and perfectly located for a home base to explore the Keys. We honestly hated to leave. We will recommend this home to EVERYONE wanting to vacation in the keys.
