About Paula D Mueller

I currently live in Orlando, but plan to move to Marathon when I retire. I love the small town, old Florida feel of Marathon as well as all the great ocean activities the Keys have to offer.

Paula D Mueller purchased this house in 2014

Why Paula D Mueller chose Marathon

I bought my property as a bank owned foreclosure in 2014, and spent the next 2 years completely renovating it. The included picture is what it used to look like.

This place is beautiful! Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

This house is completely redone, beautifully decorated. It has all the amenities....boat dock, pool is the perfect size right by the water. There's laundry room, grill, bait freezer downstairs. Owner has even supplied little things like k cups, bars of soap, laundry soap, etc. She was very easy to work with and i definitely would return. The neighbors are amazing as well!

Clean well equipped home, perfect for our family of five

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Marathon at Paula’s house. Everything was super clean, the home is well equipped with new appliances, and the screened in deck with a roof off the back of the house overlooking the canal was a big plus, we ate all of our meals that we had at home there. The small pool was perfect for the kids(5, 3, & 1) We paid for the heat and weren’t disappointed with the temperature set at 89! Made it easy for the little ones to get in, and hard to get them out!

The location was central to everything that we had planned (Dolphin Research Center, Aquarium, Multiple trips to sombrero beach and a day trip to Key West), and to groceries and lots of choices for restaurants, even a few good ones within walking distance.

Maybe a little close to the main highway, but it is not easy to get away from, and it really didn’t bother us, very quiet inside with the doors closed. There is certainly still a fair bit of damage from hurricane Irma last fall, but you can tell it won’t be long until it is cleaned up. Lots of work being done.

If we come back to Marathon we will stay here again. Thanks Paula.

Wish we could have stayed longer.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting a vacation home. It won't be the last. The Conch House met all our needs and expectations. Perfect location for our daily activities. We enjoyed the pool and our Daughter even caught a fish from the dock. It really was home away from home.

Perfect house for our family!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family of 4. We rented a boat and kept it out on the canal (side note: I wouldn't get a boat from Vacation Boat Rental). The house is fairly close to Coffin Patch and Sombrero Key for good diving and snorkeling. The pool was great for a dip after being in the ocean all day and was kept very warm even with the low temps we experienced a couple days on our trip. The owner did an excellent job responding quickly to our questions and processing our security deposit refund.

Great Escape For a Vacation

  • 4 of 5

The Conch house was very well appointed and pleasant to stay at for our family of 5. The owner was very pleasant to work with via email and she made a point to have her helpful neighbors check on us a few times during the week. We noticed just a few quirks to the home and gently pointed them out to our host who took steps to fix a few issues including a cooling repair and a few missing lights outside. The house is newly remodeled throughout, most enjoyable were the great kitchen and master bathroom inside and a new pool outside. We enjoyed the convenience of laundry, provision of detergent and other household supplies as well as the option to heat the pool for the week for $100. The pool area is shaded most of the morning and partially shaded in the afternoon by the above deck. As a sun loving person I chose to sit out near the dock but others enjoyed the shade. We were quite close to the Oversees Highway but didn't notice the noise much at all unless a siren went past. We enjoyed the easy access to the grocery store and tourist traps. The neighborhood had a mix of older and newer homes and the Conch House really stood out with it's new paver driveway and vibrant color. We had read that there was a manatee that liked to visit and with the neighbor's help we managed to spot it one day and attract it in for some photos. That was pretty cool! Things we enjoyed in Marathon most...Sunday Funday at Sunset Grill, sunset photo opportunities at Sombrero Beach using our phones that looked like a pro had taken them, two day trips to Key West, a day trip to Robbie's Marina to feed Tarpon and a day trip to Bahia Honda state park beach and the view from the old railroad bridge. Thank you so much, Paula, for having us at your home...trust me we are missing it so much now that we are back in the cold New England air....
