About Hans Moller
Married couple, teacher and engineer. Love spending time in the keys boating, fishing, snorkeling, lobstering, bike riding or just relaxing.
Hans Moller purchased this Studio in 2015
Why Hans Moller chose Marathon
We invested in our rental-units after visiting Florida Keys for 20 years. We decided that Marathon, Grassy Key, is the ultimate Keys location. People are nice and relaxed, it is the place you go when you want to get away from the 'rat-race'. Fishing, Lobstering and snorkeling is phenomenal. While Islamorada and Key West are fun places to visit, you will find the Marathon area more quiet, it's the best part of the Florida Keys. Key West is only an hour drive away, take a day-trip.
What makes this Studio unique
Provides more of a "old times" Keys experience. But we also provide the modern comforts with quiet Mini-Split AC, TV, WiFi Enjoy our private setting. Listen to the birds, gaze at the stars at night, mingle with friendly people who are in the Keys to have a relaxing and good time. A dock can be rented for $15/night (max 25 foot, Boat insurance is required)

Relaxing Marathon VRBO Efficiency
Hans and Lisa’s studio efficiency was ideal! It was clean, nicely decorated, had a comfortable bed, nice shower, adequate kitchen, and the coup de grace… a grill and picnic table outside for your personal use! The grounds were immaculate and well kept. The fish art, palms and flowering shrubs created a special touch. We felt right at home as the neighbors were welcoming and friendly. If you’re a boater, there is newly built dock area where you can moor your boat. Beyond the dock area you’ll find a fishing jetty where you cast a line or two, bird watch or just enjoy the sunset. We brought our kayak with us and enjoyed paddling and fishing out in that area where we observed shark and dolphin rising. The location of the efficiency was perfect. It’s close to the area’s shopping and restaurants, and If you’re a beach goer, Sombrero Beach and Curry Hammock State Park are nearby. Both offer white sandy beaches and kayaking opportunities where you can paddle or kayak through the mangroves! We enjoyed every minute of our stay and highly recommend this place others!
this little cottage was just what we need to just kick back for a couple days.
the walks down to the lagoon and out to the pier while the sun is raising or setting is so
beautiful. love staying here.
Great location at a reasonable rate
The property is exactly as you see it in the pictures... no hidden surprises. It was very clean and quite affordable with all the amenities of home. We wanted to explore the entire Keys and this was a perfect location in the middle that made it easy to go to either end for a short day trip. The unit owner did a great job of providing us with directions as well as things to do on the trip. If you want to experience a hands-on interaction with dolphins at a good price, check out the Dolphin Research Center. It is directly across the road from this unit. I would definitely stay here again.
perfect location to relax
had a great time quiet and clean we will be back again
