About Cathy Natelson
Hello, my name is Cathy and I'm the proud owner/operator of Catherine's Tropical Paradise. I love to travel, and while in the Keys, I'm usually busy taking my three boys fishing and snorkeling.
Cathy Natelson purchased this House in 2003
Why Cathy Natelson chose Farara Shores
I grew up in the Northeast USA, so having a vacation rental in the Florida Keys is a dream come true. Marathon supports week to week rentals and since most of our guests are families, this works out great. We love Marathon because of the small town friendly neighborhood culture, the great fishing and snorkeling, and relaxing at Sombrero Beach.

This home is beautiful. We walked around and said "wow". It felt like home! Cathy is a delight to talk to and we would definitely rent this home again. Thanks for a wonderful week!
Beautiful home, great location and beautiful view
Cathy was wonderful and the house was everything we were expecting and more. We did not have a boat but we are planning to go back next year and will be renting a boat. Cathy’s place has enough room for us to dock it and is easy access. Location was great, minutes from the beach and great places to eat!
10/10 a perfect property that met all of our needs
This was an awesome rental location! We came down for lobster season-Catherine's home provided easy access out to the Atlantic-since we were able to keep our boat docked in the back canal.
Lobster/fish cleaning station was great and the hot was great after a long day on the water!
The friendly neighbors made it feel like it was our vacation home.
The house has an open floor plan so it great for a group of six to be in the kitchen, dining area and still feel connected with conversation.
Communication with Catherine was great-an easy phone call/text.
There are a few places to consider when renting in the keys but I'd recommend Catherine's over them all!!
The property and location was great so convenient for ppl bringing boats
Overall experience was geeat.. it did well for our family vacation.. thank you for opening up your home to us!! We will recommend and remember this home next time we decide to come back
Rebooked for next year as soon as we got home
Wonderful home in a wonderful setting
We stayed at Catherine's Tropical Paradise over the Christmas period, this house was comfortable, clean and provided us with everything we needed for a most enjoyable 13 days. We hired 2 sea kayaks for our stay which we used almost daily, we fished from the dock and also from the seven mile bridge which was a experience, we caught quite a few fish.
We were also visited over 2 days by a Manetee, who seemed very interested in us, we were preparing to go out in our kayaks, an encounter we will not forget for a very long time.
We ate in a lot, purely because the home is so comfortable, a home from home feel about it, the kids enjoyed the new 55" inch TV, and the hot tub.When we did eat out we tried a few local restaurants, Burdine's for a good burger, The Steak & Lobster place for very good ribs, and The Tarpon Grill did good pizza's.
We would certainly book Catherine's place again, from the booking process, communication via email and finally our stay, everything went smoothly.
Our oceanside canal house is blessed with calm waters due to inshore and off-shore reefs. You can enjoy everything from fishing, diving, snorkeling or just relaxing in our dockside hot tub.. You can fish from our dock or bring a boat and enjoy some of the greatest fishing in the Keys. Also within a couple of miles you will find a kid friendly beach and two golf courses. There is much to do locally such as visiting the Marathon Dolphin Research Center or take a side trip to Bahia Honda State Park. Key West is only 45 miles to the south.
The house is well equipped for kids, ages 2-15+, with a hot tub, DVD surround sound system, cable TV, a large front yard, and a swimming canal.
If you love the keys you'll be right at home.
