About Glen Mitchell

We've been enjoying the Keys since 2008. Great beaches, fishing, snorkeling & dining. We love the Marathon area because it isn't as busy as Key West & much less crowded. Sombrero Beach down the street from our house is consistently rated in the top 10 in Florida. Come find out why we love it so much

Glen Mitchell purchased this house in 2012

Why Glen Mitchell chose Marathon Area

Very affordable & can be split between 2 couples. Will sleep up to 6 with the credenza bed in the living room. Plenty of covered parking. Canal front for your boat. Free standing house, so no shared walls like you would experience in a condo or hotel.


Excellent! 4.6/5 -

The house was great! It had all the comforts of home but in the beautiful fl keys. We rented a boat that was docked on the canal that our deck overlooked.

Exceeded our expectations!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The booking process was the fastest I have ever encountered, the completed transaction took a total of 20 minutes... that was the contact to let Glen know we were interested to the charges being complete... when we got there we did have a bit of trouble getting into the house( mistake on my part) sent a message and the maintenance was there in less than 5 minutes, the house was very clean, COOL( very important in July) and very large, the pictures do not do this place justice, the dock was very nice and well maintained, and with the covered parking under the house it made it nice if you got a late start in the morning the car was comfortable... we are actually considering in the future on renting both houses for a family get together when the time permits, we will definitely be reaching out to Glen again. Also the location of this house was great for us, nice quite street, the road ended at a beach, restaurants were near by and very good, we recommend the cracked conch café, it is small, clean, the wait staff are older ladies and they are hilarious, if you have little ones there is plenty to do, with the turtle hospital near by, and a small aquarium near by as well.

Cute & convenient!

Great place to stay! Very cute! Midway between the beach & shopping! Road was a little busy, but not where it was disturbing.

Very Nice Place to Stay!

  • 4 of 5

Very thorough and accurate description of the property. The place is more spacious than shown in the pictures. Very comfortable master and guest beds. Ingenious foldaway bed in living room.

Plenty of room for the boat we rented. Nice beach at the end of the street. Close to shopping and restaurants.

Very clean and well appointed. Plenty of storage inside and out. Owner easily reachable, very responsive to questions and, most importantly, has rectified complaints by previous reviewers. There is now a very nice, large table and chairs on the deck and a brand new gas BBQ grill.

We had friends and family come to stay with us and everyone was pleased with the accommodations.

Would definitely recommend to others and return for another stay.

Fantastic vacation spot with everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting a house for a vacation. We usually stay at a resort while in the Keys, but they were totally booked this time...and we were travelling with friends who had never been to the Keys. We are very glad to have been able to book this one - it helped make a great impression! The house was super clean and very comfortable. Everything that we needed was in the house and we had a great time. We enjoyed the back patio so much in the evenings...sitting out there playing cards and chatting in the warm breeze...that we didn't once turn on the televisions! The location is close to everything on Marathon - close to the beach, restaurants and stores. We will definitely consider renting again! There was a tiny glitch with the door code when we checked in, but Glen answered our call immediately and the problem was fixed remotely in under 3 minutes. Technology is great! Thank you Glen!

2nd stay

  • 4 of 5

We (4 adults) stayed at this condo last year and really enjoyed our stay. This year we returned for another 2 weeks and aside from the weather, I can again recommend this property. The condo is nicely appointed with comfortable beds and a fairly well stocked kitchen. The large rear deck overlooks the canal and includes a large table and several comfortable chairs. Great for morning breakfast before a day at the beach. Sombrero beach is about 1 mile from the condo and was a easy walk. The Publix store was a mile in the other direction as were various restaurants, etc.

The only reason that I omitted one star was that the beach chairs were pretty dismal and really unusable as was the umbrella. The gas grill was also on its' last legs with only one burner working. Other then that, the condo was wonderful and we were very pleased. The owner was very responsive to our questions, concerns, etc.
