About the property

4BR/2BA Oceanside with private yard, Tiki, Pool with hot tub. Relax by pool!!

Escape to the Florida Keys ~ Gorgeous 4BR/2BA Home on the Atlantic side of the canal in Marathon. Our home offers the best pool in our area; who can say no to a hot tub, pool, and barstools in one. Swim right up to the Tiki and enjoy the fabulous conversation you will have with friends/family or new friends while you are here.

Our home is private and gated with dog-eared fencing for added privacy and security for your children. We provide a 30-foot Trek dock for your boat that is up to 28 feet with easy access to fishing; we are just a few short minutes out to open water for the most amazing fishing, lobstering, and sunsets this side of Marathon.

A queen bed with its own tub/shower bathroom suite is on main level off the open kitchen/living room so everyone can chat about the big one that got away. Our upper level consists of a Large king bed with conversational area or reading on the couch/loveseat. 3rd bedroom has a queen bed and 4th bedroom provides 2-twin beds. The tub/shower bathroom is located the middle of the upper level for easy access for all.

Coming with a large group or extended family needing to come too? 2 other homes next to us that are Vacation rentals and with large families or multiple family vacations, we can work with these 2-3 homes to accommodate everyone next to each other and not on top of each other. Ask Michelle about the 2 other homes to see if that would work for your family/friends vacation!

We hope you enjoy our home as much as we do and please take time to enjoy our outdoor living area that has a LP gas grill and patio furniture to help everyone relax or sit and dine under the Tiki.

Everything was excellent !!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The property was very comfortable for two children(10& 12) and 5 adults. Michelle was excellent at making sure we were comfortable. The pool,spa and tiki bar were our family times together. We also brought our pontoon boat and enjoyed the closeness of the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico. Love to visit again in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Charlynne, we are happy to hear you all had a great time! That pool and hot tub are so popular with the kids and the beautiful Tiki for family gatherings. We adore the shade the Tiki provides for everyone and the TV for entertainment, whether it be cartoons or the upcoming Super bowl, we hear rave comments about our outdoor living space and out Tiki. Glad to hear you all want to come back as we would be happy to host you and your family again!

Wonderful Week in Marathon!!

  • 5 of 5

Hi! last year we decided to make a family trip to celebrate my 60th birthday in 2018. We all decided to go to the Keys and after viewing many homes we decided on Manatee Cove in August 2017. Then in September Hurricane Irma happened... Needless to say we were concerned about keeping our reservation in Marathon. I can tell you we are so happy we decided to keep our reservation at this charming house but that we went and supported a great community. Michelle was fantastic and honest about the situation at all times. The home was terrific and I joked with my daughters it was cleaner than my own home!! We also live in Florida and completely understand hurricanes, I am so glad we stayed and supported our state...Florida Strong!!! Keys Strong!!! The grit and the gratefulness of the folks in all of the Keys, every place we stopped was inspiring! God Bless you all! Thanks for a great stay, we will be back!!

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic experience during our stay at Marathon. There were 7 of us staying in the house. There was plenty of space for everyone to spread out inside as well as outside by the pool. All of the kitchen and laundry appliances had been updated, which was an added bonus. We spent most of our time outside by the pool, hot tub, tiki, and on the dock. Michelle was very helpful throughout our entire stay. She was always very responsive to all concerns we had. The entire neighborhood was extremely friendly as well. Marathon was the perfect location for us, because we were able to explore many areas in the keys including traveling to Key West and making multiple trips to Islamorada. We had a wonderful experience at this house, and we are already talking about returning.

Owner's Response: Awe Amanda! You are too kind. Thank you for the amazing review of our home, we so enjoyed hosting you and your family. Thank you so much for the pics you shared with us and we did post them on our FB page, KeyZ Vacations. You sure did get quite a few "likes" with the kayak and paddleboard pics. I think the kids had a wonderful time in the pool with all that laughter and the baby manatee at the dock, so cool to see. Thank you again for sharing your vacation with us and we look forward to hosting you all again!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words Rich. We had a wonderful time hosting you and your family while you were all here...your on relax.... Isn't it so cool to see the manatee at the dock and the kids having so much fun in the pool? Our backyard helps set the mood anyway you look at it, especially after a day of fabulous fishing, snorkeling, or beach. We added a 2 person kayak and a paddleboard so now the kids can have another fun adventure, ok, you as well. Looking forward to hosting you all again and thank you again for your awesome review!
