You can fish by boat on the flats a couple hundred yards from our dock for Bonefish, Tarpon and small Sharks. Shallow reefs only a mile or two away offer Yellowtail, Mangrove snapper, and Mackerel in abundance. The Gulf Stream offers Dolphin, Wahoo, Tuna, Sailfish, you name it. This is a boating and fisherman’s paradise

About Hans Moller

Engineer and High School teacher. We are a married couple who enjoys fishing, traveling, good music (ie New Orleans Jazz Fest), cooking (ie fish on the BBQ)

We work hard, then escape from the real world and go to the Florida Keys as often as we can.

Hans Moller purchased this studio in 2003

Why Hans Moller chose Marathon

We invested in our rental-units after visiting Florida Keys for 20 years. We decided that Marathon, Grassy Key, is the ultimate Keys location. People are nice and relaxed, it is the place you go when you want to get away from the 'rat-race'. Fishing, Lobstering and snorkeling is phenomenal. While Islamorada and Key West are fun places to visit, you will find the Marathon area more quiet, it's the best part of the Florida Keys. Key West is only an hour drive away, take a day-trip.

What makes this studio unique

Enjoy our private setting. Listen to the birds, gaze at the stars at night, mingle with friendly people who are in the Keys to have a relaxing and good time.

Perfect place to relax

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family have rented the apartment twice before and we will be happy to return. It is clean and tidy. The property is close to Marathon where you will find exciting restaurants with delicious local seafood. The area is very nice for those who like to fish. The property also has access to a nice pool which is approximately 60 meters from the apartment.

This is the perfect place for those who want to relax. The apartment is about an hour's drive from Key West. We would recommend the apartments to family and friends. Me and my family are happy to rent the apartment again the next holiday.

Loved #9

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved this place. It was cute, clean and handy to Marathon's businesses, beaches, and parks. We walked to the end of the road daily to watch the sun rise and see the marine life waking up. The swimming pool was great, people were friendly, and BBQ grill was used often. Cannot say enough about this place.

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed staying at this property. It is comfortable and clean, and for 1-2 people is perfect given you won't be spending much time indoors anyway. Located near restaurants, running/bike path, grocery stores, and, of course, the water, if you're looking for a quiet escape in the Keys this can't be beat. The owner is friendly and responsive.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in #9. Description is completely accurate. It's a very good value for price (for the Keys). Very easy check-in process--no need to negotiate an exact time for check-in or out. The photos make the unit and grounds look a little frumpy but actually they are cute and lovely. The owner really puts a lot of effort into making the yard and interior very attractive, highly functional and comfortable. Everything was immaculately clean. Thank you, Housekeeper! Strong air conditioning. Plenty of supplies. I cooked meals in the kitchen easily. Probably for health reasons, no food was left in the unit for us to use. The wifi worked fairly well--good on my laptop, so-so on my phone--better on the porch where the router is located. We aren't familiar with using satellite TV but got the hang of it. Unless I'm missing something, you need to wait quite a while for channel information to load. The beds are firm and comfortable; however, a tall or large person might find them too small. There are trailers and other residences quite near the unit, but there weren't many other residents around (even in December) and it was perfectly quiet and private. The no-see-ums were pretty bad in the yard. Skin-so-soft repellent worked better than Off. I saw online that some people recommend using various essential oils as repellant, so you may want to investigate that in advance. I insisted in sitting in the lovely yard despite the bugs and came home with tons of bites. However, it depends on the person--the bugs didn't bother my husband at all. I know no-see-ums are a problem in Florida and many parts of the country, so you'll find them many places. The walk to the jetty and the jetty itself were great--very natural with hardly a man-made structure in sight. Mangroves. Beautiful. Lots of birds and sea creatures. It was often breezy/windy at the jetty which kept the bugs away. The area is nice--north side of Marathon. There are things to do in the area (plenty of stores and restaurants too) and you can drive to Key West in 90 minutes or so. In conclusion, if you want to spend a lot of time outside & are susceptible to bug bites or if you wouldn't be comfortable on a twin bed, this might not be the best place for you. However, if these things wouldn't be issues for you, unit 9 is an absolutely perfect place for an affordable Keys vacation. Highly recommended!
