Exceptional property !!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This property is beautiful. We have stayed ad VRBO all over the world and this house is by far the best we have every seen. The location is beautiful. The views over the gulf and sunsets. The pool/spa are amazing. The dock was super nice for fishing and includes a fish cleaning table. There are kayaks, bikes, fishing rods, snorkeling equipment, dive flags, nets etc. It even has a light to attract the fish at night. The house has a great layout. The kitchen is very well equipped and super clean. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms are very nice. Huge washer and dryer. It is located just minutes from many restaurants, grocery store, shops, etc. The house is well organized and has been maintained to a very high standard. We had viewed the pictures many times in anticipation of our trip, but we were BLOWN AWAY when we set foot on the property and got to see what it really looks like. We are already planning a return trip to this house. It is highly recommended.

Lovely home, lovely property, lovely people.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here (2 adults, 3 teens) and loved every minute of it. The home had so many things that we were still discovering stuff on our last day. We spent tons of time on the amazing dock watching 4ft wide manta rays, squid, fish, lobsters, crabs, nurse sharks, and so much more swim by. The house had everything we needed to live for a week without 10 trips to a store (which is conveniently located). It was really nice to be in the middle of the keys. We were just a short drive from anything there was to do. A truly lovely vacation, our own (temporary) slice of paradise!

Beautiful home with beautiful views.

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for my husband and our 2 girls. The kitchen was nicely equipped compared to other houses we have rented in the past. We spent a lot of time in the pool. It was a warm week. The dock was nice we saw many fish,lobsters and a small shark!!! The girls snorkeled and swam off the dock. We also took a trip to Key West and did some other fun things!

Wishing we were still there🤗�

About Pam

My husband and I first came down the Marathon in 2011 and purchased this house with a Partner. We fell in love with the KEYS instantaneously. It is relaxing, serene and beautiful. We especially enjoy coming down with our three sons to regroup as a family; spend time fishing, swimming, going out to eat and just relaxing together. We are now the sole owners of Vista Linda since May 2016.

Pam purchased this house in 2011

Why Pam chose Marathon Shores

Vista Linda is Paradise!

Enjoy the Panoramic views of the Gulf, relaxing in the pool and hot tub, fishing, reading a book under the ficus tree, watching the wildlife or just basking in the sun. It is the best place to unwind and relax!

Our beds are very comfortable, and the amenities are abundant!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We spent 2 glorious weeks at Vista Linda and cannot say enough about our was FANTASTIC. From early morning and late night swims in the pool to relaxing in the hot tub, snorkeling in the crystal clear water or watching all the beautiful sea life and gorgeous sunsets from the was all absolutely perfect. The landscaping is so beautiful and helped to add a feeling of seclusion. The house is beautifully decorated and has the best equipped kitchen of any vacation rental we have stayed in. One of the highlights was almost daily visits from the big orange iguana in the big tree...we affectionately named him Thor. We went to Key West one morning and could not wait to get back to our little getaway in Marathon. We are already planning next year's trip!!
