Hello and thank you for your interest in taking a vacation in our Florida Keys home. We are located in the city of Marathon, specifically the Sombrero Beach area (mile marker 50). We are 2 miles from local grocery stores, fuel stations, convenient stores, restaurants and more. There are exciting local attractions in Marathon such as the Dolphin Research Center, Turtle Hospital, Crane Point, Sombrero Lighthouse, Sombrero Reef, Sombrero beach and much more. The famous 7 mile bridge offers breathtaking views and allows for a gorgeous morning walk on the old bridge to view the historic Pigeon Key. Also, a short 50 mile drive will get you to Key West for a fun tourist day trip!

From our home, you may access Sombrero beach on foot, by bike, by car or via the canal. The walking or canoe/kayak/paddle board distance is 5-10 minutes to Sombrero Beach (depending on your pace). If you drive there is ample parking. The beach offers picnic areas, child play areas, a volleyball court, and easy access for outdoor water activities.

Our home is a 2 story home; including 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. One bedroom and bathroom is located on the first level and 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom are located on the second level. The furnishings and décor are new and will be very comfortable for your friends and family. For your use, we have a toddler high chair, pack n’ play, picnic table with cushioned benches and a beach cruiser (aka ‘radio flyer’). We adore animals but at this time, we are not pet friendly. We are a non-smoking home.

The keys are all about the outdoor living experience and this home has all to offer. The tropical paradise backyard with lush landscaping, 15x30 concrete lagoon style swimming pool with a beach entry and umbrella, a tiki hut with tiki bar, outdoor shower, hammock, 40 ft dock for fishing with a fish cleaning station, patio screen enclosure to dine and relax, and a ramp allowing easy access for non-motorized water adventures.

We’d love to hear about you. Tell us a little about yourselves, your whereabouts, your desired vacation dates and the reason you chose Marathon as your vacation destination.

About Sherry Broadway

Purchasing a property in the Florida Keys has been a dream of ours for many years. The astonishing water views, weather, love of the ocean, love of all forms of life, boating and fishing access are just a few things to make you feel warm and welcome. A couple, one born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA and one in Miami, FL strove to make a dream a reality. Our passion for our home is evident. We designed the back yard with the intention of living, relaxing and exploring outside all day while the inside allows for a comfortable night stay. The décor reflects our keys personality. The bright colors boost happiness and deliver the ‘on vacation’ state of mind. Our love and awe of fish, the ocean and the keys is present in the pictures and home accents. We respect and adore our home and our neighborhood. With no doubt, your family and friends will too. Enjoy your salt life experience from us to you!

Sherry Broadway purchased this House in 2015

Why Sherry Broadway chose Marathon

Marathon is an amazing city filled with wonderful locals and delicious restaurants and attractions. It's central location to all of The Keys; a 50 mile drive to Key West for an incredible day trip. The Sombrero Beach area has a warm neighborhood feeling. Sombrero Beach is minutes away on foot. The street is quiet, friendly and gorgeous. We are a few houses from the open Atlantic Ocean and Sombrero Reef and Lighthouse are minutes away by boat for the best diving and snorkeling experience. The canal offers much excitement with visits from manatees, tarpon, herons and much more. In our great Atlantic back yard you can fish and catch Snapper, Grouper, Yellowtail, Mahi, Mahi and more!

What makes this House unique

The proximity to all the Sombrero Beach area and all that Marathon has to offer.

                                                          Marianne D.

                                                          Just got back from a week at this lovely property. Although it sits on a canal, it is very private and quiet. The pool was perfection (loved the umbrella you could open over part of the pool, it let me float and read at the same time!), the kitchen top notch, and everything was spotless. Sherry responded quickly to a few minor issues, and managed to do so without causing us a moment's worry or interruption. The property is small; it was perfect for just my husband and I, and I think it work well for a family with three or fewer children, but this is not the place for an extended family visit or several couples (unless you get along with them better than I get along with my extended family). Loved the property and absolutely would return.

                                                          Perfect family vacation home.

                                                          Loved our stay! Beautifully decorated, well stocked and attention to every detail. The amenities pool, cabana and boat dock were awesome. The owner was helpful and responsive! We brought a 21 foot center console, no issues getting in and out. Easy access to ocean and a straight shot out to Sombrero Key Lighthouse where the snorkeling was fantastic! Can't say enough about this experience in Marathon, we will be back!

                                                          Wonderful time!

                                                          We have been coming to the Keys for 20+ years and have never dealt with such nice, responsive, respectful and fun people!! Thank you for an incredibly relaxing surrounding, quick response and clean inviting atmosphere! Most enjoyable!

                                                          Beautiful home. Comfortable beds. Lots of sleeping space. Our absolute favorite was the pool!

                                                          My kids spent the whole time enjoying the pool. The beach entry makes it so easy for the kiddos.

                                                          Truly an enchanting experience

                                                          From the moment you step into this house you are blown away, clean, bright, beautiful, it is equipped with everything you need to never have to leave. We took full advantage of the dock for fishing, the salt water pool, the BBQ, the well equipped kitchen. We took a short walk to enjoy Sombrero Beach for a day. Rooms and bathrooms and beautiful and spacious. Please don't hesitate to stay here, it is more beautiful in person. Additionally the property manager was very prompt with answering questions and ensuring we were happy with our experience. This is a gem of a property that is matched by amazing customer service. Thanks for making this vacation such a memorable one!

                                                          Great spot just down from the beach
