Awesome House- Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This house was great for five adults. This was our first trip to the Keys so we wanted a central location that would allow us to venture out and explore as much as we could during our vacation. We were able to go to Key West two days which was only a short drive away from the house. John Pennekamp State Park was a great stop on the drive down, and Bahia Honda State Park was only a few miles south of the house. We spent two days at Sombrero Beach which had beautiful white sand and clear water that was great for swimming and snorkeling. The Turtle Hospital in Marathon was a great way to learn about how turtles are rescued and rehabilitated. The tour was very interesting and educational.

The views from the house were breathtaking! To have the Gulf and surrounding islands as our backyard for a week was incredible. The large screened areas upstairs and downstairs had plenty of room for everyone and added extra living space. The house stayed very cool and was refreshing to walk into at the end of the day. The dock was great for fishing for our supper as well as for dolphin watching. We had a visit from a dolphin who came right up to the dock and swam around! The wildlife was exceptional as we saw not only fish and dolphins, but iguanas were abundant at the house and chickens, roosters, and Key deer were roaming around throughout the Keys. We were not disappointed! Thank you Sandy for sharing your amazing piece of paradise!

Wonderful stay in the Keys

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for 6 adults (3 couples) as it had three bedrooms and three full baths plus a half bath. There was plenty of screened in space, both on the upper deck overlooking Florida Bay, and in a large, multi-purpose screen room on the lower level, and plenty of casual seating. The house was very well maintained, the kitchen well stocked with cooking utensils and dishes. It provided a very livable situation for all of us. Marathon is close enough for a day trip to key West, and has plenty to offer in the way of kayaking, snorkeling and fishing.

Great House a perfect spot.

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many houses in the keys, some were as advertised , some not so much. This house was exactly what it said it was, comfortable not pretentious,

more adequately furnished and supplied than most. It pretty much was what we

would own if we had a house in the keys. The screened downstairs was fabulous.

We had some good times there, bar, tv and an incredible view. The dock was perfect for fishing, we caught many kinds of fish, and saw dolphins , manatees and rays. We have stayed at most keys between KW and Islamorada, we find Marathon to be THE BEST location of all. Marathon has everything you want, including great restaurants such as: Frank's Grill, some of the best italian I have ever had, King's Seafood , right up the street, great fresh seafood and fabulous

Cuban sandwiches. For a great sunset, Sunset Bar and Grill at the bottom of the

bridge. If you don't feel like driving far, Nowhere Pub is truly great food.Breakfast: Stout's and Stuffed Pig. If Greek is your thing, Meditarrane on US1 was a real find. However for us the BEST restaurant in the Keys is Square Grouper in Ramrod, a little pricey but you will remember the meal way longer than the check. Finally , Sandy is a great owner, supernice and easy to deal with.

One last thing, as we were blessed with good weather most of our stay, we came to appreciate the comfortable beds and great AC at the end of our day. As soon as our vacation plans plans clear for 2016, we will be back to this great house and location.

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house is so beautiful, well maintained and spacious. We had such an awesome time here and are already looking forward to going back. The property has a perfect location, a huge yard and sea wall. It is so easy to get out to fish, lobster and to snorkel. The kitchen and living area accommodates a crowd of friends nicely! Totally remodeled and nice. Well worth it!!!!

Awesome Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our adult children and us, we each had our own bedroom and baths. There was a dock and slip for the boat and we were able to fish off the dock. Beautiful views of the ocean. Also a perfect place for a pet as the decks and yard are completely fenced in. The location is between Islamorada and Key West so was a short drive to each and this home is close to many stores and restaurants. Great family vacation!

Marathon is centrally located in the Florida Keys with a hospital and airport. Our home is located directly on the Gulf. A public boat ramp is five minutes away at Vaca cut for a quick trip out to your favorite fishing spot. There are great restaurants and shopping with in close proximity.
