Amazing vacation, great house!
Really enjoyed our stay, was a perfect location and will definitely look at getting this property the next time we are in Marathon!
We brought the family down for a week this June. We have stayed in Marathon many times before. We have a 28ft offshore boat and a backwater skiff. As most do, we come primarily to fish. We were trying to upgrade this year to an even nicer house and paid over $1000 more for this house than the house lasted year, which had all of the same amenities and was on the Atlantic.
First, let me say that the pictures are deceiving. The house is much smaller than it looks in the photos. Don't expect a mansion. The house is nice, but I was expecting nicer for the money. Also, a huge point that was not mentioned is that the beautiful long dock is basically unusable. Let me say that I am an experienced boat captain. The tides are so strong where the dock is, approx 5kts, that it is immpossible to dock your boat on the lift on an outgoing tide. Also, the dock is extremely high and you will not be able to dock without advanced experience. I say this because when you come back from a day of offshore fishing and a fish box full of fish and you can't dock your boat for 4 hours (after dark) it is just a little frustrating and I think should be noted better on this advertisement.
Other than that, the pool area is nice and the kids liked the tidal pool. Property manager was responsive and offered to correct a sugar ant problem. So if you don't plan to fish, it's a decent house though way too expensive IMO. If you have a boat, it's more hassle and you can get much better for the money.
