Location Location Location. In the absolute middle of the string of islands known as the Florida Keys. Only 50 miles to the southernmost point in the USA keys west and 50 miles north to the mainland. We are on one of the very rare beaches in the Florida Keys. Marathon is a quiet island for rest and relaxation. Some of the best diving and fishing in the world. Warm tropical breezes all year long. Our pool is open 365 days a year. Pool is heated from late December until March 31 every year, even though it is not many times in February and March.
Very rare in the Florida Keys to have a natural sandy beach. Then in additional equally is rare to have a pool overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Each villa is self-contained with no adjoining walls to the next villa. A home away from home.

My family and our extended family visited Cocoplum in May 2009. We had like a mini family renunion. We had the best time ever. The staff at Cocoplum are very friendly and helpful. The villa's make you feel at home with a full kitchen and we were able to sleep six very comfortable. The kids enjoyed playing tennis, basketball, walks along the beach and visiting with family. This is a very laid back atmoshpere and the kids can wonder around safely while mom and dad enjoy relaxing by the beach or pool. We visited the local fish market which was great and enjoyed dinners with our families in each others villa's nightlly. We are booked again for May 2010 we can't wait. Cocoplum is a great place to go in Marathon and a at great price.
The condos are very clean, comfortable, and most importantly, quiet. I stayed in one closest to the street with 2 other adults. It was a 2 minute walk to the beach, pool, and hot tub but the grounds are beautiful and the other renters are very pleasant to stop and chat with. The club is nearby to various restaurants and shopping. The condo had lots of room to hang out in. The kitchen was well stocked for meal planning if you wanted it. The beds were considered very comfortable by all three of us adults and once again, quiet. We only had three comments that we would improve but these are minor:
1. The coffee cups were smaller than the average size coffee cups.
2. My 73 year old mother didn't like the 16 steps going up to the front door although she didn't mind the spiral staircase.
3. Would prefer high definition television.
Overall though, great quality for a reasonable price. I highly recommend this for people looking for a relaxing stay at a quiet, clean condo with personality!
Nice and clean, good equipped unit comfortable kitchen,Clean private beach and beautiful ocean. We enjoyed our time in Coco Plum Resort.
Very good location to Key West and Key Largo and also to Deep Sea Fishing places.
We loved the beach in front of the accommodation . It was quiet when we were there and very private for swimming and sunning ourselves. Our kids loved playing in the pool which was right beside it and the jacuzzi was a nice extra. The accommodation is spacious and well equipped but is a bit tired and unless you are in one of the front buildings there is no view from the balcony to speak of. The staff were friendly and we had no problems there. Coco plum key itself has little there within walking distance but it is near to the main drag of Marathon where there are many restaurants of varying quality and decor as well as all other amenities. Marathon is also well placed to visit the lower and middle keys.
I just wanted to share my experience at your property. The place was absolutely wonderful. The staff that was there checking us in were extremely pleasant and very welcoming. The unit itself was extremely clean and had everything we needed. I honestly want to thank you for the amazing experience. Your housekeepers would greet us and were very nice. The fact that we were able to use the pool and Jacuzzi after hours was also great again thank you for that. We enjoyed a very nice quiet peaceful place. Would definitely come again and soon!
However I do want to share a very unpleasant experience. We were in the pool with the family and kids and this older gentleman (do not know his name) approached us and was screaming very loudly at my kids and brother that there with me that there was no glass allowed in the pool area. He found a large vodka bottle that was within feet from us and I guess he assumed it was ours (which it was not) and kept yelling at us that there was no glass or alcohol allowed in the pool area and was touching our items from our table I guess looking for other glass (which there was none) I was quite insulted being that we do not drink and felt violated that he was touching our personal belongings. I am not sure who he was or what that was all about but I honestly felt very uncomfortable about the whole situation. At checkout I was asked how everything was and wanted to share with you then but there were guest checking in and did not want them to have a bad image of the facility from the get go. Again I hope this does not happen to any of your guest in the future. We are hoping to use your place again next month and hope this does not happen to us again.
Setting up the rental was very easy and professional. Allen was quick to answer questions, and was able to accommodate our beachside unit. We had #3, the unit to the front right in the photo. Each of these units is a self contained "pod" with a washer and drying in the base of the pod. Though our unit looked out over the pool, much of the time it was very peaceful. The substantial unit builds seem pretty insulated against sound. We never heard out neighbors.
The units are very clean and well appointed. The only reason I took off a star was that they really are in need of redecoration. They look like super clean 1990 motel 6's. The kitchen is super tiny, but doable. The best part of the deal are the fantastic screened porches that almost wrap around.
As for amenities, the pool is lovely and clean. The beach (as we were warned) varies a lot depending on the tide and weather. Much of the time it was just fine for swimming. One day a couple of manatees toodled by.
There is a nice tennis and basketball court, and basketballs and racquets are available to borrow.
Lastly, the development is located on a pretty mellow road. We all took advantage of the area to run/bike/walk in peace. It's about 5 miles from the Marathon food stores and all, which was fine by us.
Very nice stay, very professional management.
Marathon is in the middle of the Florida Keys. Just 55 miles north of Key West. 20 miles south of Islamorada. 50 miles south of Key Lago. 90 miles south of Miami Airport.
