Why Leslie Christensen chose Marathon Shores

This home is a tropical oasis in a very quiet neighborhood. It's off the beaten path and offers a very serene and peaceful environment. Not your typical rental home.

Spent a month here in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a month at the beautiful home. We enjoyed every minute of it.

Everything we needed was right here. The kitchen was perfect for cooking meals. We ate dinner every night on the covered patio overlooking the pool and water.

The pool is a work of art. The sun ledge was used daily. We enjoyed sitting on a chair on the sun ledge reading books and enjoying the view.

The home is great for seeing wildlife. We saw iguanas, parrot fish and a manatee off the dock. We even has a dolphin swim up one night, what a treat to see! The dock is great for fishing off of. It's just a 2 minute boat ride to the Gulf.

The beds here are very comfortable, the pillows and bedding were in great condition. The furnishing and furniture inside and out were very comfortable.

We already have our month reserved for next year and are counting down the days until we return.

Making plans to go back next year!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at this home for our family Christmas vacation and are making plans to go back next year! With 7 adults and one teen we enjoyed having plenty of room to spread out and to gather as a group. We especially loved the pool and hot tub and many areas to relax outside. Seating around and in the pool as well as in the gazebo gave everyone a place to curl up with a book or catch some sun. Covered seating on the back porch was great for the occasional rain shower and to get out of the sun for a while.

The kitchen is large and well stocked and the grill is big enough to cook for a group. We cooked in a couple of times and enjoyed the area restaurants other nights. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from and shopping is very close too.

We rented kayaks for the week and explored the lagoon behind the house as well as up and down the island and canals nearby. There’s a spot to launch the kayaks next to the dock, be sure to have some water shoes, the rocks can get slippery. If you like to walk this location is great as you can walk several miles in neighborhoods without ever getting on a busy road.

Day trips to the Dry Tortugas, Turtle Hospital, Pigeon Key (walking the old bridge) and Bahia Honda and time lounging in the pool rounded out our week but we left plenty to do for next year!

WOW! What a wonderful vacation.

  • 5 of 5

WOW! What a wonderful vacation. We thoroughly enjoyed this house. It is a zen garden of wonderfulness. It is well stocked and the beds are super comfy. We really loved the decor, not too cluttered but enough to feel homey. This is a very upscale home. We took advantage of the hot tub after our trip to Key West, which isn't far at all. Marathon Key has a lot to offer on it's own, beautiful sunsets, great food, kayaking, fishing, snorkeling and more! Thank you!!

We will be returning!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this home for a week and we were not one bit disappointed!!! It was absolutely beautiful inside and out! The master bath looked newly remodeled and was very nice also the bed was very comfortable. The kitchen was completely stocked with everything you would need. The backyard and pool by far was where we spent most of our time and it looked exactly like the pictures. The best part was how quiet and peaceful it was there! Definitely worth the money and we will be returning!

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

We left snowy MN, MI and Quebec and landed in paradise. We were in the heated pool by 7:30 AM and stayed outside all day. The home was lovely and had everything we needed for a very relaxing week. We had 5 adults and two small children staying in the main home. The landscaping, gazebo, walkways, dock and lovely neighborhood were so perfect for reflection, adult conversation and walks with the toddler and baby. We rented paddle boards and easily made it to the ocean. Lots of birds, iguanas and it was fun to watch the planes come to the airport. The hot tub was bliss at the end of the day. Renting was trouble free with Leslie. We highly recommend this property. It was a perfect location for our family vacation!
