About the property

1 bedroom/1 1/2 bath fully stocked condo with ocean views and 200 ft boat dock.

Ocean front condo PLUS a 200' long deep water canal with immediate access to Coast Guard marked channel. Minutes to Vaca Cut to the Gulf so you have your fishing choice: deep water ocean or the Gulf water humps. Boat ramp and trailer parking right on property. Small condo building sits on a peninsula at the end of the street so it is surrounded by water.

Condo has two balconies: one facing the ocean and one overlooking the canal with an ocean view. Views are from every interior and exterior view point. Kitchen is fully stocked, all linens provided (except beach and boating towels). Master bedroom has a new king bed and sofa is a queen pull-out so the unit sleeps 4 people. Unit hasa new 4K TV, cable, wifi, blue ray DVD, and Netflix. Washer and dryer are in the unit.

In addition to a spot for your boat, bring your kayak because the dock has steps down to water level for easy launch and to the left of the canal a bay for smooth waters. Marathon has miles of sidewalks for biking, jogging or walking and most open water bridges have pedestrian bridges for your enjoyment. You may also visit Sombrero Beach minutes away. Or World Famous Bahia Honda Beach & State Park is a 25 minute drive. Key West is an hour away.

Marathon has all the amenities you will need including a plethora of fishing charter captains, grocery stores, shopping stores, bike and kayak rentals, and casual to fine dining. It is in the middle Keys so you will be away from the tourists, but close to convenience.

The condo is in a small 8 unit building with very friendly neighbors when they are there, but regulations don't allow children under 12 or pets (sorry).

About Mary Ann Rule

We live in Naples Florida, but love going to the Keys for relaxing. We purchased this amazing property to enjoy on weekend get aways when YOU are not using it. We have rented the unit for a full season with very satisified renters and are just now expanding the opportunity to VRBO and HomeAway to reach a more domestic and global audience.

We make it a point to answer all questions in a timely manner so you can arrive in Paradise with relaxing on the agenda.

Mary Ann Rule purchased this condo in 2013

Why Mary Ann Rule chose Marathon

The unit is a rare opportunity to be able to enjoy panoramic ocean views while also having a long canal and can be deep water fishing in no time. We love the clear warm water in the Keys and this unit gives you the views and the ability to be in the water for swimming, kayaking, or boating immediately. There is a small boat ramp on the property and the ability to park your trailer in the building lot. The unit is in a small building with friendly neighbors if you like or privacy if you prefer.

What makes this condo unique

Come enjoy Paradise and bring your boat or if you don't have a boat just bring your sunscreen.

- Ocean views

- 200' canal

- Small boat ramp on property with trailer storage

- Two balconies

- Great beach with facilities and grills on the island

Guestbook comments from the owner

Kurt and Alicia were the perfect guests in our condo. They are prompt and thorough in communicating, self sufficient, left my unit in perfect condition, and even mailed my key back. Look forward to having them again and again.

Best Rental Experience Yet in Marathon!

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the best rental experience we have had; we are regular renters in the Florida Keys and regularly use VRBO. Mary Ann couldn't have been more helpful, she is a wealth of information, she is quick, courteous and helpful. We tried many of her recommendations for food choices and she was spot on. The home was in perfect condition, clean and fully stocked with anything and everything needed. The neighbors were friendly and non-invasive. The location couldn't be better and the views from every single direction were breathtaking, picturesque and very hard to leave behind. I will definitely be coming back to this rental every year!!

Great location and even better views!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great find! My husband and I spent a week here in July and loved it. Both balconies were fantastic, and it was a special treat to have amazing sunrise views from one and sunset views from the other. MaryAnn was great to deal with, provided us with loads of suggestions for our trip, and even left a bottle of wine to welcome us! The property was very well situated for exploring the area, and it had tons of room throughout for the time relaxing at 'home' (though we spent most of our condo time on the balconies enjoying the breeze and the view). Would definitely book again!

Perfect Location!!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Marathon. We have stayed other places but this one was exactly what we needed. Ideally located!! Perfect setup for fishing with direct ocean access for boats, docking, wash down, and fish cleaning station. Mary Ann was very friendly and has the condo stocked with necessities. Very clean and comfy! My wife and I will be back!
