About Bob Royko - CALL FOR OWNER CONFIRMATION

We live in Wisconsin, and like so many in our part of the world we sought out warmth and sunshine during the winter months. After many visits to many warm weather venues we discovered Paradise in the Florida Keys. Our first visit was in 1978 and we have come back every year since.

Bob Royko - CALL FOR OWNER CONFIRMATION purchased this condo in 2003

Why Bob Royko - CALL FOR OWNER CONFIRMATION chose Marathon

We chose Seaglass in Gulfpointe 2 because it has everything we love about the Keys. It is secluded and quiet but still walking distance to our favorite beach and restaurants. Our home is spacious and the views are fantastic from just about every room.

What makes this condo unique

Seaglass is right on the water and from our balcony you will see ocean birds and aquatic life that will keep you entertained. Our location is convenient to great attractions to the West in Key West and to the East with all of the Islands in the Islamorada chain. As our guest you will have access to a private beach in Key Colony (Inch Beach) which can be reached on foot or via a 2 minute car drive.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Bob And Connie

Thanks you for sharing your large welcoming home with us. It is one

of the best equipped and nicest that we have stayed in thru VRBO. We

really appreciated that Bahia Honda State Park was so close too. We did not miss anything that we needed in your well equipped home.

Your directions and instructions were perfect and clear. We particularly liked the wooden table on the balcony where my husband and I enjoyed our evening wine in the warm breeze.

We will be back.

Thanks you

Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time at Seaglass! It has all the amenities you need. Washer/dryer, good size fridge, blender (Loved it), toaster, cups, etc. We spent every morning relaxing outside on the deck and staring at that beautiful view. We enjoyed the large pool just steps away which we had all to ourselves most of the time. We also spent a lot of time on the dock which is nearby too. From the dock, we caught several different varieties of fish of which the largest fish we caught was stolen by a shark before we could reel it in.

We also saw from the dock a sea turtle, manatee and more sharks (I don't recommend swimming there:) Very quiet neighborhood and clean grounds. You can walk to Sparky's behind Holiday Inn and to The Island Fish Company. Both have great food. We also used Captain Hooks which is close enough to walk to also. Thanks for sharing your condo!

I hope to see you again next year and please know that we do treat returning guests to dinner at one of the better restaurants in the Keys. It really gives us great satisfaction knowing that you enjoyed Seaglass as much as we do when we are there. Please come back Bob Royko 608-695-2283

We enjoyed our stay and had a wonderful time.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was well equipped with everything we needed. The dock is very nice for your boat and the kids loved fishing from the dock at night, lots of Mangrove snapper and they even caught a shark, barracuda and tarpon from the dock.

Only recommendation would be to add a bait cooler downstairs like the other units had for their guest. But beautiful place to stay and would highly recommend to others.

Owner's Response: Hi Tricia thanks so much for the kind words and the review. Your suggestion for a bait freezer is well taken and we will look at it when we are down there. You are the first to recommend it but I know serious fishing can involve bait and chum that must be kept cold or frozen. You did find many of the great features that our unit offers and the pier can be great fun for fishing for kids although I have limited out on the pier on more than one occasion. I hope we see you again in the future. Thanks and all the best to you and your family. Bob Royko

Paradise In The Keys

  • 4 of 5

Having stayed at the same complex before our over-all impression has not changed....great place to stay and good jumping-off point to all other areas of interest in the Keys (i.e. Key West, Key Largo, area beaches, Miami, etc.).

Property was well maintained and equipped with all the conveniences. However, the grill was not on our balcony, as anticipated, but down under the building and too heavy to carry it up the stairs. The result was that several meals we planned could not be prepared.

None the less, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: Hi Michael I'm sorry about the grill. We have been informed by the County and the Marathon fire Department that grilling on the balcony or under the building is no longer permitted. In order to use the grill, the unit must be moved away from the building to a spot that has nothing flammable above it like a ceiling or an overhang above the balcony. I'm glad the rest of the trip was good for you. the location is excellent and we do try to provide a clean, well furnished facility. I hope we see you again in the future. Bob Royko

Excellent location and super clean condo

  • 4 of 5

This was our 6th year at Gulfpointe 11 condos; the first one at Seaglass. One of the cleanest properties we've been to, super comfortable and great location. The views were excellent! Looking forward to staying again!

Marathon has everything that the Keys have to offer. Water everywhere, ocean museums, world class diving and fishing, incredible fresh seafood every day and it's easy to find your way around. One main street, that's it. Look for the many fascinating festivals in Key West or the art festivals that occur throughout the Keys and the wonderful beaches for total relaxation. All this, and the most laid back atmosphere in the world. You will want to come back again and again.
