Why Maria Bethencourt chose Marathon

This spacious property sits directly on the Gulf. Every room in the house has views of the Ocean. All the rooms are extra spacious and provide a restful retreat after your busy day. Just imagine waking up making coffee in your own room and sitting outside your deck to the beautiful Gulf Waters, a dream come true.

What makes this house unique

The home has access to the ocean, for swimming, kayaking, snorkeling or diving. The deep water dock allows you to bring and dock your own boat.

You can also fish from the end of the dock. There is a ladder at the end of the dock which gives you access for swimming and snorkeling

Beautiful home convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Nine of us celebrated my parents' 50th wedding anniversary in this well appointed home with beautiful amenities. Access to the sea, kayaks, snorkeling, hot tub, and gorgeous sunsets were highlights. Thank you for sharing your home and providing such a great space for our family. We would love to return.

A true "jem" in the Keys

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here and had a wonderful time! There were 7 of us (4 adults and 3 kids) and we had plenty of room to move around and live in. The house is well organized and stocked with everything you might need. It has the basics but we had to get more toilet paper, paper towels and laundry soap as the week went by. The house has been updated beautifully and is very comfortable and clean. The owner was prompt and helpful in answering our questions about the property and getting us the information. We love to fish and spent a lot of time on the dock at the house and on a boat (we rented this from a local company). There is a bait shop close to the house. We also love to snorkel and scuba dive. There are good places to snorkel around the dock and small islands very close to the house where we saw parrot fish, stingrays, snapper, crabs, coral, and tons of colorful smaller fish. We also went to Bahia Honda State Park to snorkel. We scuba dived with a company right there in Marathon and had a great time. Key West is not a bad drive and worth visiting while here (have to try frozen chocolate covered key lime pie on a stick from Key Lime Pie Co. - yum!) There are two grocery stores up the road and lots of restaurants. This is a perfect location for a vacation get-a-way! A different sunset to enjoy every evening and a great place to kick back and relax...a jem!

Nice. Smaller than what thought.

  • 3 of 5

House was comfortable. Accommodated 4 adults and kids but it was tight. The single beds were small and so was the futon. Beautiful views.

Owner's Response: The house is very spacious as has been noted by all other guests that have stayed loved and reviewed the property . All the rooms are large. The twin, king and queen beds are standard bed sizes, not any smaller. The futons in the rooms are for a family who wishes to have a young child with them in the room. Base on this guest comments, It makes me wonder how many people actually stayed at the property since the house easily accomodates 10 guests. We have two king sized large master bedrooms, one queen sized bedroom and a 4th bedroom with two captains beds that accommodate 4 children or adults; and the beds can be converter to King sized beds. This family also broke a chair and the box spring of one of the King sized beds. It saddens us that someone would take the time to write an inaccurate review.

Spectacular Sunsets is an understatement

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful property, Sunsets on the Gulf definitely lives up to its name! Words cannot express the beauty and tranquility of this home. By far the best VRBO home we have visited!!! Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with our family.

My two children and I stayed for a weeks vacation in July 2016 and thoroughly enjoyed the daily show provided by mother nature as the sunset over the Gulf (viewed straight out the back of the house visible from the living, dining and kitchen areas or the patio and dock). The home is beautifully decorated and has everything that was needed to have a peaceful family vacation, lots of gathering areas and also plenty of rooms for privacy. We fished from the dock onsite every day and caught lots of fish (most were hand sized --- large variety and very colorful). It was very nice and greatly appreciated that the home offered fishing equipment, fishing yo yo's and a bait freezer. There were times that we observed several large fish pass by the dock, schools of colorful fish, crabs, skate, lots of birds and iguanas. My kids thoroughly enjoyed the kayaks, fishing, observing nature and the games that were available. Marathon was found to be a family friendly area with ample shopping areas within 2 miles of the home and not overly crowded like some other tourist destinations. It was very nice to be on island time for the week. The home was better than described in the description. The owner was excellent to work with. The only negative thing was that the visit had to end. I have already recommended the home to our friends and we definitely would love to return again. One of our favorite vacation home destinations ever! Thank you!

We can't say enough how beautiful the home and views were! Maria and her husband have thought of everything and go above and beyond to make sure you have everything you need or anything you could think of . We enjoyed the beautiful sunsets, snorkeling, fishing, swimming, and kayaking without having to leave the home. We are a family full of allergies and have a hard time finding somewhere to stay that doesn't irritate them and that wasn't the case here. If you are looking for a vacation to get away from it all and relax with no worries this is the home! We are already starting to plan our next trip back!!

Marathon is in the heart of the Florida Keys. It is one hour from Key West, 30 minutes from Isla Morada and 45 minutes from Key Largo. It's Paradise to us. Slip away into breathtaking views, gulf breezes and access to swimming right off our deck and dock. It's advisable to wear water shoes and wear a diving flag as you explore our crystal clear waters. Part of the experience includes Kayaking (included 2 doubles with life vests) right from our steps. Relax in the Sun, use the 10 foot Jacuzzi Spa, and wait for the extraordinary sunsets that change by the minute. Beauty and relaxation surround you without ever leaving the property. However, your vacation will most certainly be enhanced by taking in some of the most notable beaches, restaurants, and shopping. We personally love the Old Seven Mile bridge that offers, walking and biking with unforgettable views. Sombrero Reef is beautiful for snorkeling or swimming and its about 3 miles off-shore. There are several other snorkeling diving sites in Marathon. Marathon has two beaches. Sombrero beach which is beautiful during the winter months. There is also Cocoplum Beach, which is a natural beach. All ocean beaches tend to accumulate seaweed in the summer depending on how the wind is blowing. I recommend a drive to Bahia Honda State Park where there are beaches on both the Ocean and Gulf sides. There are many different areas you can go to from our property. In addition, there is a great community park with tennis courts, basketball/hockey courts, skateboarding, soccer fields. baseball fields, shuffleboard courts, boccie ball, picnic areas etc. Marathon is also full of great restaurants and bars, a movie theater and a live theater with performances throughout the year. As a side note, some of the restaurants will be an experience in itself. Great food and ambiance that provide great entertainment and flavors for you palate.
