  • Perfect for a Vacation on the Water

    "We are repeat guests; this was our 5th year at this property. Prior to this house we stayed at a different location in Marathon each year, enjoying our time but not quite what we were looking for. This spot is perfect for those who plan on spending a good deal of time in the water. You have the Gulf in the back and the Atlantic just minutes away, the best of both. The sunsets are amazing! Even the days we had stormy, overcast weather the sky was picture perfect. We are able to pull right up to the house, unload our gear, clean fish & lobster and relax in the pool. My tip – bring a canopy to put over the pool, you will be surprised how much cooler the water is (remember its south Florida). Any issues we have had are always taken care of promptly. After a long hot day, I have to say the a/c is better than my own home! We have made use of the bikes (the path to the Old Seven is a great ride – watch out for big Iguanas, but it’s closed for refurbishing) and the kayak (go left and into the little cove before the island for a calm paddle). For the best Key Lime pie check out Seven Mile Grill – we walk, it is right on the corner. For the best meal go to Lazy Day’s South – just across US1, bring your catch and ask for the Lazy Days way. I have tried to visit so many spots on Marathon, with a camera, and would say my favorite was a helicopter tour. We actually flew right over the property. For the past 4 years we have had an octopus outside at night, a pretty blue, and this year while looking for it a 7ft nurse shark came all the way in the boat slip. It was a first for me to not have my camera and I missed it. My first review was 2012 and I decided not to read it before writing this, I just did and realized I said most of the same things."

  • loved our stay!!

    "loved elaines home, very clean and spacious. we had 6 of us and never felt cramped. We had friends over for dinner (10 of us) and cooked without any issues. Washer and dryer were life saves after the days at the beach. Rented a boat for 3 days and didnt have any problems tying up on her dock. Neighbors we talked to were very friendly, and the cabana club was a nice treat after long days in the sun ( thier pool is actually chilled and refreshing) The few questions I had for Elaine were answered very quickly. Looking forward to our next trip already and wouldnt hesitate to stay here again!"

  • Loved our stay on the Garden Side

    "We had a very enjoyable time at the Royal Plum. Upon arrival we were able to check in on time and getting into our condo was very uncomplicated. The condo was well equipped and very clean. We loved the quietness of the garden and spent every night on the screened in patio. During our evening swim we met Kevin the grounds keeper. He was super informative and very friendly. We loved our view and the quietness of the condo complex. The pool and beach were perfect! Pool and beach toys are avaliable and even lounging chairs. Just bring your beach towel and relax. We will definitely return next year!!!"
