Mesmerizing views, outstanding location, directly on the Atlantic Ocean, so close to the Ocean that you can practically fish from the patio. Speaking of the patio, it's over 40 feet long. You may just spend your whole vacation sitting on the patio watching the bay slowly change into 100 different shades of blue. We have a brand new 28 foot heated pool with a view you will not forget. We have re-done this million dollar house so all the bathrooms and bedrooms are new. We have all new mattresses and bedding, all new Kitchenware, all new sinks, showers, tubs, etc. We have 3 new Paddleboards, 2 new single kayaks and a tandem kayak. We also have 4 brand new Beach Cruiser bikes and a game room with a ping pong table, card table, bumper pool, Xbox, video games, and a piano. The list goes on an on... You will not be disappointed in this place! There are no houses in the lots right next to this house on either side facing the Ocean. So there is great privacy here. Lulu's Garden Restaurant and Tiki Hut is right down the street across from a very nice Kid's Park, all within walking distance. Please check out the pictures... (pool heat, if requested is $195 a week)

About Todd and Jamie Stangl
We are a family of 6 from Wisconsin! We have 3 kids in College (UW Madison) (UW Platteville) and we enjoy going on Trips to the Florida Keys, specifically Marathon. My first trip to Marathon was as a child in 1972ish when my Brother lived down there and worked at Fisherman’s Hospital. It was a completely different world compared to Wisconsin and I fell in Love with the Keys
Todd and Jamie Stangl purchased this House in 2014
Why Todd and Jamie Stangl chose Marathon Shores
We own a Condo in the Marathon Area (Coco Plum) and have been managing it as a Vacation Rental for the last couple of Years and have had a blast doing it. So we decided to jump out of the airplane and buy the gorgeous house right on the ocean. It comes with a 40 foot Cement Pier with a dredged channel to the deep water Ocean. But the Bottom-line for us was The Crazy, Gorgeous View. It is truly mezmerizing! You can literally watch the water change from turquoise to navy blue to white to sky blue. It is fascinating to watch. So Rent this beautiful home enjoy your own study in Blue.
What makes this House unique
The Gorgeous View... Seriously! It is hard to describe. The patio glass doors are over 7.5 feet high. You can literally watch the water change from turquoise to navy blue to white to sky blue. It is fascinating to watch. So much of this house is Brand New! Brand new Bathrooms, Bedrooms, Paint, Pool (to be put in October 2014), Kayak / Paddleboard launch, Kitchen upgrade, Kitchenware, Beach Bikes, Kayaks, Paddleboards, Hurricane Windows, Furniture, etc. There is a ton of Privacy, since this Home is located next to empty lots on both sides of the house.

Beautiful, Clean and what a view!
I cannot say enough nice things about Todd and his family and their lovely house. It is worth every penny! Our family fished, swam in the pool, took boat rides (we docked our boat right at the house), relaxed on the porch, paddle boarded, kayaked and the list goes on. The house comes with everything! Todd was super attentive and we had an amazing experience. It was the perfect setting for making memories with our family.
And...truly, it is the view. It is spectacular!!! I wish I was still there looking out over the beautiful colors of the ocean right now!!
Thanks so much for the awesome review! It was wonderful to have you stay at the house. We feel the same way you do and always have a good time vacationing on the ocean. Please come back any time. SERIOUSLY!

Better than advertised!
Pictures don't do it justice! This place is awesome! Everything you could want in a great location!
When I first saw the home all I could think of was "A million dollar view". We were a family of 6 adults and a child. There is plenty of room for everyone to do what interests them.
Todd was very attentive when I contacted him. He and Jamie were a pleasure to interact with, and loved all the tips of places to go for fun dining with a local flavor.
The house is beautifully decorated and you can tell with all the little extra's that they have added that they sure had the renters in mind to make their vacation the best it could be.
I don't think any one would be disappointed choosing this rental. There is really nothing else any one would need that Todd and Jamie haven't thought of, and...don't forget "that million dollar view".
Thanks for everything
Perfect place for a relaxing vacation!
My husband and I shared this wonderful home with my parents and aunt for two weeks. It's perfect for multiple generations. There are plenty of spaces both to be together and to find privacy. The less active people read on the balcony and relaxed by the pool. The more active people took advantage of the bicycles and the sea kayaks that come with the home. The heated pool made swimming an option, even in January.
The Stangl's are very easy and professional to work with.
Nothing like sitting in a beautiful pool of water staring at an Ocean of water in January! Thanks for taking to the time to write a wonderful review!

My family and I stayed at the Stangl's Vacation on the Ocean and it was amazing! Working w/ Todd and Jamie Stangl was a pleasure. They were organized and professional and even gave us tips and links for things to do before we even arrived! We brought 10 pp with us ranging in age from 5 to 61. There was something for everyone. The location was perfect, the pool was heaven, the views were breathtaking and the house was spotless. I highly recommend this vacation home for any group traveling to Marathon Key.
Thank you for the review! Perfect! Come back anytime!

We'll Be Back Next Year!!
The pictures truly do not do this home justice. I am well known among my friends and family for being very picky and obsessed with cleanliness, and I was very impressed with the Stangl's home. The view from the deck is second to none, and we loved how secluded the house felt (especially compared to staying in a home on a canal as we have in the past). We have visited the Keys many times but this was by far our best family vacation. The home itself has everything you need: pool, dock for the boat, paddle boards, kayaks, bikes, snorkeling equipment, ping pong, etc. We took advantage of all of the amenities. There is an adorable park just down the street for the kids and Lulu's Tiki Bar for the adults. While the drinks are awesome (mango tango.....YUM), the food is fantastic as well. We also visited the Turtle Hospital, fed the tarpon at Robbie's,
went snorkeling at Sombrero Reef, took an afternoon trip to Key West, and had the best key lime pie EVER at Island Fish Company. I just don't know how you can beat this house and its location. We loved it so much that we have already rebooked for next summer.
Thanks for writing such a great review! We look forward to you staying again with us!

There is a real nice kid’s park right down the street.
