About Sue Kaser

Our children practically grew up here in Marathon. We live in Florida, and have spent many summers in Marathon. We kept our boat at Faro Blanco in the summers where our children learned to snorkel and dive.We are so happy to have a home in Marathon. We love boating, fishing, snorkeling and diving, and we think that the water here in Marathon is clear and beautiful. We hope to share our experiences with you and hope that you will enjoy Marathon as much as we do.

Best Keys Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

The Tiki Chalet was perfect for the 4 of us, the pool, covered deck and especially the ice maker are spectacular. Great canal to both. the gulf and Atlantic, and local restaurants/shopping. WISH WE WERE STILL THERE.

Best home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This place was truly amazing. It was fully stocked with all the things you might forget to bring. There was a plentiful supply of toilet paper, paper towels, towels, sheets, dish detergent, laundry detergent, plates, pots and pans, and the list can go on and on! I never once was in need of something and didn't have it. They even had superglue for one of the children's nick-knacks that they had to have from Key West that was broken by the time we returned to the house! The family goes above and beyond to make your whole stay an experience! The place was spotless when we arrived! Great pool, just big enough to keep the kids entertained. We would highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a true home away from home!

Enjoyed Tiki Chalet

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay at Tiki Chalet, especially the smart home controls that allowed us to easily listen to XM or Spotify while lounging by the pool. Great location for boating/fishing/snorkeling between the Gulf and Atlantic through close by Vaca Cut. The separate bait cooler, icemaker, and pool area shower/bathroom were very nice to have. Owners Bill and Sue were great to work with and were very accommodating. Kevin (boat caretaker) was also very helpful and entertaining. Our only regret is that we were not able to get to snorkel Sombrero Reef due to the wind and swell that week. Maybe next time.

Perfect place for a truly wonderful stay in Marathon and in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

The Tiki Chalet is perfectly located in Marathon with some shops and restaurants within a 5 – 10 minute walk.

We were amazed our clean and well-kept this rental is with everything we needed for our two week holiday.

The entertainment system in the house was just great with satellite TV and massive projection screen in the living/dining room and bedrooms and sound system thought the house and pool area.

The pool is really good for cooling off and we spent most days enjoying it. The area around the pool has also has a shower and toilet which is very convenient.

We also hired the boat which has all the navigation and fishing equipment we needed to catch some very nice fish from the Gulf and Atlantic.

We met Kevin who showed us how everything worked and was there within 10 minutes if we needed him throughout our stay, he even brought ice one day when the ice machine stopped working so we could fill the cooler on the boat.

The Tiki Chalet is the perfect place for a truly wonderful stay in Marathon and we would highly recommend this rental.
