Nice property right on the canal!

  • 5 of 5

The owner was very accommodating and willing to work with us. The sink handle broke one evening and it was replaced the next day! Only word of caution is we did bring our 22' center console with us and the channel getting out of the canal was never deeper than 18"-24" which made it interesting a few times getting back in but, with the water being so shallow you would see a bunch of Ray's underneath the boat. Owner provided everything you would need and the home was very clean upon arrival.

wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Marathon was a truly great experience. Phil's cottage was very nicely appointed, clean and everything you needed was there.

The view was spectacular and Phil was just a phone call away to answer any question. Sombrero Beach was 5 minutes away.

There was nothing else you could ask for to have a wonderful stay

Great Marathon location! Clean and well maintained.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week, June 2016, with a 16' flats boat. The rental was clean and well maintained with everything you could need in Keys rental. Plenty of parking for an extra vehicle or boat trailer. Very quiet neighborhood in Sombrero Beach area of Marathon close to restaurants and shopping in the Middle Keys. Phil was fabulous to work with and very prompt in communications. I would highly recommend this rental for anyone looking in the Marathon area.

GoldenPlum Vacation

  • 4 of 5

I really like that we did not have to have keys to enter and leave this condo. It makes it much easier to manage with four people. The condo was clean and a had good supplies in the kitchen and bathrooms. All of the linens were of good quality. The kitchen area is small, but well stocked. We especially enjoyed sitting outside by the dock. The owner was very friendly and helpful when I called to ask questions.

Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

This rental was perfect for us. Great location. Phil was always available and accommodating. We enjoyed Sombrero Beach a few times. We also used a local Taxi service. We highly recommend this unit to others. Thanks again, Phil.

Golden Plum

  • 3 of 5

Nice view of Atlantic Ocean. Comfortable beds and very roomy for two people. Bathrooms and showers were nice. Lots of early morning noise from daily garbage trucks but otherwise a quiet neighborhood. Very close to grocery stores. Sombrero beach is in walking distance or a very short drive. Lots to do and see in the area. Would have given it 4 stars except for the dirty toilets, hair in the shower drains and dirty sticky floors especially in the bathrooms. Phil apologized that his cleaning company from Maine had cancelled due to poor weather.
