About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 Bath, 3 Story Private Home Directly On the Ocean With a Pool!

Mesmerizing views, outstanding location, directly on the Atlantic Ocean, so close to the Ocean that you can practically fish from the patio. Speaking of the patio, it's over 40 feet long. You may just spend your whole vacation sitting on the patio watching the bay slowly change into 100 different shades of blue. We have a brand new 28 foot heated pool with a view you will not forget. We have re-done this million dollar house so all the bathrooms and bedrooms are new. We have all new mattresses and bedding, all new Kitchenware, all new sinks, showers, tubs, etc. We have 3 new Paddleboards, 2 new single kayaks and a tandem kayak. We also have 4 brand new Beach Cruiser bikes and a game room with a ping pong table, card table, bumper pool, Xbox, video games, and a piano. The list goes on an on... You will not be disappointed in this place! There are no houses in the lots right next to this house on either side facing the Ocean. So there is great privacy here. Lulu's Garden Restaurant and Tiki Hut is right down the street across from a very nice Kid's Park, all within walking distance. Please check out the pictures... (pool heat, if requested is $195 a week)

About Todd and Jamie Stangl

We are a family of 6 from Wisconsin! We have 3 kids in College (UW Madison) (UW Platteville) and we enjoy going on Trips to the Florida Keys, specifically Marathon. My first trip to Marathon was as a child in 1972ish when my Brother lived down there and worked at Fisherman’s Hospital. It was a completely different world compared to Wisconsin and I fell in Love with the Keys

Todd and Jamie Stangl purchased this house in 2014

Why Todd and Jamie Stangl chose Marathon Shores

We own a Condo in the Marathon Area (Coco Plum) and have been managing it as a Vacation Rental for the last couple of Years and have had a blast doing it. So we decided to jump out of the airplane and buy the gorgeous house right on the ocean. It comes with a 40 foot Cement Pier with a dredged channel to the deep water Ocean. But the Bottom-line for us was The Crazy, Gorgeous View. It is truly mezmerizing! You can literally watch the water change from turquoise to navy blue to white to sky blue. It is fascinating to watch. So Rent this beautiful home enjoy your own study in Blue.

What makes this house unique

The Gorgeous View... Seriously! It is hard to describe. The patio glass doors are over 7.5 feet high. You can literally watch the water change from turquoise to navy blue to white to sky blue. It is fascinating to watch. So much of this house is Brand New! Brand new Bathrooms, Bedrooms, Paint, Pool (to be put in October 2014), Kayak / Paddleboard launch, Kitchen upgrade, Kitchenware, Beach Bikes, Kayaks, Paddleboards, Hurricane Windows, Furniture, etc. There is a ton of Privacy, since this Home is located next to empty lots on both sides of the house.

When I first saw the home all I could think of was "A million dollar view". We were a family of 6 adults and a child. There is plenty of room for everyone to do what interests them.

Todd was very attentive when I contacted him. He and Jamie were a pleasure to interact with, and loved all the tips of places to go for fun dining with a local flavor.

The house is beautifully decorated and you can tell with all the little extra's that they have added that they sure had the renters in mind to make their vacation the best it could be.

I don't think any one would be disappointed choosing this rental. There is really nothing else any one would need that Todd and Jamie haven't thought of, and...don't forget "that million dollar view".

Thanks for everything

Perfect place for a relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I shared this wonderful home with my parents and aunt for two weeks. It's perfect for multiple generations. There are plenty of spaces both to be together and to find privacy. The less active people read on the balcony and relaxed by the pool. The more active people took advantage of the bicycles and the sea kayaks that come with the home. The heated pool made swimming an option, even in January.

The Stangl's are very easy and professional to work with.

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the Stangl's Vacation on the Ocean and it was amazing! Working w/ Todd and Jamie Stangl was a pleasure. They were organized and professional and even gave us tips and links for things to do before we even arrived! We brought 10 pp with us ranging in age from 5 to 61. There was something for everyone. The location was perfect, the pool was heaven, the views were breathtaking and the house was spotless. I highly recommend this vacation home for any group traveling to Marathon Key.

We'll Be Back Next Year!!

The pictures truly do not do this home justice. I am well known among my friends and family for being very picky and obsessed with cleanliness, and I was very impressed with the Stangl's home. The view from the deck is second to none, and we loved how secluded the house felt (especially compared to staying in a home on a canal as we have in the past). We have visited the Keys many times but this was by far our best family vacation. The home itself has everything you need: pool, dock for the boat, paddle boards, kayaks, bikes, snorkeling equipment, ping pong, etc. We took advantage of all of the amenities. There is an adorable park just down the street for the kids and Lulu's Tiki Bar for the adults. While the drinks are awesome (mango tango.....YUM), the food is fantastic as well. We also visited the Turtle Hospital, fed the tarpon at Robbie's,

went snorkeling at Sombrero Reef, took an afternoon trip to Key West, and had the best key lime pie EVER at Island Fish Company. I just don't know how you can beat this house and its location. We loved it so much that we have already rebooked for next summer.

Summer family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I are from the Ft. Lauderdale area. We like to vacay in the FL Keys every Summer and are particular where we stay. This place scores highest in all categories with us! Very secluded yet close to everything. Endless open water views. While many others in the Keys are sweating, we enjoyed the non-stop ocean breezes out back. The protective flats kept the water calm for paddle boarding and kayaking. And even though I have my own pool at home, this one is the most refreshing I have ever been in! Somehow it stays cool in July. Nothing like coming in from a day on the boat and hopping into this great pool! The kitchen is well stocked, the paddle boards and kayaks are in great condition, as are the outside grounds. The BBQ worked awesome, and they even had a spare tank of gas. It had fishing rods, bikes, pool floats, etc. You won't need to bring anything! I hope we can visit this property again in the future! Our family even enjoyed playing ping pong at night in the downstairs game room. Thanks Stangl family for keeping such a beautiful clean home!

Just spent a week with our family in this spectacular Atlantic front home!! Amazing!! All newly remodeled, great master suite. You never need to leave this house, just relax and enjoy!! This house includes all the activities any resort would. The pool, the deck, all sporting equipment, X- Box, along with the beautiful views and sunrise! The house is phenomenal, spotless, well equipped and great comfy beds. Our family had a vacation of a lifetime here. Todd and Jamie were super to do business with and open communications. I could just go on and on about how pleased we all were for such a fantastic place to vacation! 😎 Would highly recommend this rental you will not be disappointed. Oh and the Manatees swim right up to the beautiful dock.
