About Tim Heitman

This is our home and as such have put a tremendous amount of thought and care into making it the most comfortable and sustainable as possible. We live here for 8 months of the year and have made it our paradise.

Tim Heitman purchased this house in 2014

Why Tim Heitman chose Marathon Area

This property is in a perfect location for Key Colony Beach. Walking distance to all of Key Colony Beach's unique offerings. Sunset park within a block which nightly is filled with residents and guests for the sunset. Easy access to fishing in the Gulf or on the reef as well as snorkeling and diving. The home is perfect for hanging out at the pool or as a base for exploring the Middle Keys and all the opportunities it has to offer, including wildlife and active social life.

What makes this house unique

Extensive remodeling done in 2017. The back yard has a pool with patio and dining area. The dock is spacious with plenty of room for fishing and lounging. East facing back prevents excessively hot afternoons. Front yard with landscaped citrus bearing trees and shrubs.

Slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5

This house here is perfect. The owners have everything you need set out for you. There's two master suites which are large. The pool and patio area is great. Plenty of places to sit and relax. Large dock and enough room for a large boat. Great neighbors.

Second Year

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's second year staying in the Heitman home. We enjoyed our stay just as much as the first year. We love being able to pull the boat right up to the dock and the house, enjoy family meals together and game night and movies. It is also fantastic that each bedroom is set apart, providing privacy and making it possible to go to bed early or sleep in a little later than the others, allowing for recovery from long days of boating and fishing. We also took full advantage of the Cabana on our non-boating days.

Over already?

  • 5 of 5

The home was just that, a home. It was cozy and comfortable and had ABSOLUTELY everything needed. We prepared almost all meals at home easily. Our teenagers enjoyed their stay as much as us and the grandparents. Fishing, boating, diving, snorkeling, pool, community beach and cabana filled our outdoor days. I would recommend without hesitation.

This is the Pièce de résistance of rest and relaxation

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful home with an incredible amount of room. There are two master bedrooms that are a great size. So there are no problems with privacy if you are traveling with friends. The home is pristine and so comfortable.

Being on a canal gives one easy access to the ocean or gulf if you are a boater. Key colony beach park was a draw every night to watch the beautiful sunsets and afterwards take a dip in the pool.

This was a dream vacation spot.

Awesome Vacation!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome vacation stay at this beautiful Key Colony Beach home. This vacation home has a spacious living area with secluded bedrooms. Highly recommended for family vacation or couples vacation. Fully equipped kitchen with everything you would need during your stay. The pool is awesome especially after a day of fishing on the open waters or just relaxing in the beautiful Florida key sun and taking a dip in the secluded pool. What can we say, but the dock is well maintained and has plenty of space for docking your boat, fishing off the dock or just sitting and watching the canal wildlife. Evening walks to sunset beach to socialize and take plenty of pictures of the spectacular sunsets. We also enjoyed going to the Cabana Club relaxing by the pool, ocean and being served our drinks and meal. The property location is perfect just a short drive to any type of shopping your hearts desire and of course just one hour drive to Key West for sight seeing and shopping. We look forward to returning to this wonderful vacation home next summer.
