About Loren Metrick

Mark and I both grew up in Ft Lauderdale Florida and moved to Nashville, TN 30 years ago

Loren Metrick purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Loren Metrick chose Marathon Area

We have been coming to the Keys since we were children. After moving to Nashville we have continued to vacation in Marathon with our family. We find the area of Marathon to be very laid back, excellent diving and fishing, great restaurants and totally relaxing! With the purchase of this townhouse and spending a year completely renovating it, our dream has finally come true... to one day own a home in the Florida Keys!

What makes this townhome unique

Being on the Marina allows us a chance to view the beautiful boats, and enjoy the company of local boat owners docked in the Marina.

Beutiful place

  • 5 of 5

This is not only a great place to stay but great owners to deal with. Loren is awesome and always responds quickly with any questions you may have. The condo is truly first class with high end appliances and furnishings. You guys have done an awesome job renovating this condo and have thought of everything! A gas grill, Weber charcoal grill even Tervis cups so the ice in the cocktails doesnt melt as quickly. We had a great time in your home, Thank you for having us. We hope to be back soon.

A perfect place.

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, comfortable home that has been updated with all the amenities one would want. Upon arrival we found a very clean, well equipped condo. The location was perfect and the surroundings fairly quiet. The grounds of the yacht club were well maintained and the pool was perfect. The water views were beautiful. We would love to return.

Amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful is how I would describe this home! Loren the owner has thought of everything to make your stay relaxing and comfortable!

We arrived just after Christmas with our two kids ages 6 and 8. We enjoyed fishing off the dock. My son caught a sting ray!

We also took the kids snorkeling at sombrero reef. We headed down to key west for a day. The drive was about 40min. In key west we went out on a shark Eco tour! The kids absolutely loved seeing sharks swim all around the boat. The captain fed them and at one time we had about 20 all around the boat!We had a great time charter fishing out of Robbie's marina in Islamorada... We caught lots of fish and were able to cook it right at the house. The kitchen is fully equipped with a new stove all pots and pans, everything you need!

Bahia honda is a great beach, as well as sombrero and both very close!

I really cannot say enough wonderful things about this place! We enjoyed the community pool at the end of the day. It was never crowded and the people that were there from time to time were very friendly.

Loren was a pleasure to rent from. She answered all of our questions and was very hospitable! We would definitely rent again!

A true Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the month of February 2015 in this beautifully decorated and well appointed home away from home. It is so comfortable and the location is the best of water views and landscaping depending on which porch you choose. The pictures show you what you will enjoy. Kitchen has everything you need to enjoy cooking if you desire or there are many good eating spots. One of our favorites is the Key Colony Inn. Loren and Mark have made their townhouse definitely a welcoming place and they kept in contact to make sure everything was satisfactory and that we were enjoying our stay. We hope to return again.
