Great family vacation!
We enjoyed our stay. Wonderful home. Helpful information from owner
A great house with all you need for relaxing vacation!!
We spent 10 days in Peter and Lea's lovely house in Marathon. We felt at home the moment we arrived. The house has very nice interior and decoration, and we enjoyed the high level amenities in particular - starting with the Weber gas grill, the kayaks and the SUP's. The large seating area near the pool is nice and shady most of the day, the pool is nice and clean, the cooking supplies in the kitchen upstairs sufficient, and the 3 bedrooms all with king size beds is a big plus especially if you are two families, as in our case. The location Marathon is very convenient, if you plan to visit the north and south keys.
Lea was very responsive throughout our stay answering a few questions within minutes. We can only recommend this house to anyone looking for a relaxing, worry-free vacation rental.
A relaxing Spring Break
We traveled with another family of 4 (4 teens total). The kids had a fun time hanging out in the pool and going out on the paddle boards and kayaks. Ait was a neat experience to get to see a manatee that came by the dock one afternoon. We used the super big and nice Webber grill and cooked in most nights but, had a few nights out at a couple fun restaurants in the area, as well. We rode the bikes and went to the pretty white sand beach nearby. We would definitely return here next time!
This vacation home is beautiful
We had a fantastic stay! There was plenty of room for 4 adults & 4 teenagers. The home had everything we needed. Lea was so helpful and made sure our stay was comfortable and enjoyable. We definitely would stay again!
Great location, great amenities, great hosts
If you are looking for a place to stay in the Sombrero Beach area of Marathon, this is the place for you!
Our group consisted of two kids, mom, dad, grandpa, and grandma and we stayed for a week. When we arrived, we were very excited with the accommodations. Everything looked new and it was all ready for us to enjoy. The kitchen has pretty much anything you would need to cook whatever you want (including a blender for those slushy drinks). The bedrooms were all decently sized with nice, big, comfortable beds. Even the bunk bed was nice sized with comfortable looking mattresses.
The outdoor patio was fabulous and we spent most of our free time here while the kids swam (and jumped, and swam, and splashed, and jumped) in the pool. I’m pretty sure the water was worn out before we left! The pool isn’t what I would consider large, but it’s a great size for the kids or just cooling off when the sun gets hot. There are a couple of umbrellas and plenty of seating plus the table under the lanai is huge with enough seats for everyone. The refrigerator here is very helpful for holding water and cold drinks.
The house is also in a great location. Publix and Kmart are maybe two blocks away; easy walking distance (which we did many times). There is also a Winn Dixie that seemed to be under refurbishment when we were there, but should open soon. Sombrero Beach is a little further down the road. We took the car when going to the beach because it would be a pretty long walk with all of our gear. However, my wife walked to the beach every morning for a start of the day walk and really enjoyed it. There are tons of restaurants along US 1 in the Marathon area. The binder in the unit lists several good ones to try out. There are also a number of attractions throughout the Keys and, being in the middle, everything is an easy drive. We went to Bahia Honda state park, visited the dolphin research center, did a half day fishing charter with Captain Doug and took a day trip to Key West (as a few examples!) We still have other ideas for our next visit.
We tried out the kayaks, but they are difficult to get into and out of the canal. We actually used the neighbor’s dock to get out and carried the kayaks around to put them away (It was low tide which didn’t help). But it’s really nice that all the recreational toys were provided. There were even a couple of fishing poles that we used in the canal. We didn’t catch anything, but the fish are there.
Beautiful, comfortable and better than advertised!
Ocean Blue Villa was our first choice for the celebration of my husband’s birthday. Our family of six adults and one toddler enjoyed every aspect of the property, from the very comfortable seating and bedding, to the wonderful outdoor areas.
Ocean Blue Villa is spotlessly clean and well equipped, from the paper goods to the beautiful decor.
Lea and Peter are very responsive owners and provided everything we needed for our stay.
Thank you for your part in making our special family memories!
