About Sandy

The owners of this home were stationed in The Keys many years ago and always knew that one day they would be back. Fifteen years and two kids later they are finally getting closer to turning that dream into a reality. They purchased this home as a vacation get-away and as soon as they are empty-nesters they will make this vacation home their forever home. In the meantime, they plan to make many happy memories here and hope you can too.

Why Sandy chose Marathon

They love Marathon for its many family-friendly activities, fantastic restaurants, and the famed Sombrero Beach right down the street. They love to fish and snorkel; both are excellent and close by. Marathon is centrally-located and an easy trip from the airport. It's also packed with amenities so grocery shopping or finding a doctor is convenient and easy.

What makes this villa unique

This home offers everything for a family, group of friends or even a couple traveling to The Keys. The pool and dock are perfect for an active lifestyle, or a not-so-active one. The large, brand-new kitchen has plenty of storage for all my cooking needs and the two-suite bedrooms are perfect for us and our extended family.

Great home away from home for staycation

  • 5 of 5

This home is exactly as advertised. Everything we needed to enjoy our staycation. The property managers were super helpful, informative, and available as needed (even on a Sunday when the pool heater goes fritz). I would say only downfall is the rotating neighbors, it is a duplex on a street of similar vacation rentals so if you get a rowdy bunch next to you (as we did) it can have an affect on your visit but definitely not the fault of the property owners or managers. Will be back very soon!

Thank you for making our stay for our family during our wedding week comfortable. Beautiful house with the right amenities. The only suggestion is maybe a few extras like bikes, fishing poles or kayaks like our friend's rental house had just down the road, that would have made it more possible to see the canal and something to do for the more at home days. But other than that the stay was perfect for and made for a perfect wedding :-)

Just can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this home is perfect! We loved the centrally located spot for our Keys vacation. We visited with my brother's family and had plenty of room for all (the two master bedrooms were great). We were close to Key West for sight-seeing, as well the Dolphin Research Center and Turtle Hospital in Marathon. We even got to swim with the dolphins! The dock was perfect for our boat. And my husband and brother made good use of the fish cleaning station-we caught lots of Mahi and a nice wahoo. I loved the snorkeling- it was amazing! We enjoyed the boat ride out to the gulf or ocean- lots of wildlife and amazing houses. We watched beautiful sunsets from Sombrero Beach located 3 minutes down the road. The kids never wanted to leave the pool and thank God it had a chiller, because it was hot out! The fishing from the dock was great and even caught a little nurse shark.

We really enjoyed our stay here and the location and amenities were second to none. We can't wait to return for another week in this paradise next year!!

The house is new and in great condition. The pictures are very accurate.

  • 4 of 5

My extended family of 9 stayed for 2 weeks and had a very nice time. The house is stocked well and suited our needs nicely. The location is excellent as it is very close to Publix, Kmart, restaurants, etc. One word of warning for boaters, it is a 20 minute no wake canal ride to get to the Atlantic and 30 minutes to get to the gulf.
