Why Maria Bethencourt chose Marathon

This spacious property sits directly on the Gulf. Every room in the house has views of the Ocean. All the rooms are extra spacious and provide a restful retreat after your busy day. Just imagine waking up making coffee in your own room and sitting outside your deck to the beautiful Gulf Waters, a dream come true.

What makes this house unique

The home has access to the ocean, for swimming, kayaking, snorkeling or diving. The deep water dock allows you to bring and dock your own boat.

You can also fish from the end of the dock. There is a ladder at the end of the dock which gives you access for swimming and snorkeling

Wonderful Reunion Location

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a wonderful week here at Marathon Key. Family visited from Washington state, California, Minnesota, and Georgia. The four large bedrooms were all put to good use, as were the well stocked kitchen, the double dining options, (indoors or out on the lanai, overlooking the gulf), the large hot tub (easily holds six people), and the large TV for watching movies.

The house is extremely clean and well stocked with plenty of cooking items, dishes, utensils, and glasses. Not only were bath towels and wash clothes in ample supply, but, Maria even had small toiletries available if necessary, for emergency use.

The house could challenge any resort for activities as Maria has generously supplied floats, snorkeling gear, fishing rods, life jackets, two tandem kayaks, beach chairs, beach towels, and even sun screen lotion.

The sunsets from the dock rival anything Key West has to offer, and the home is away from US 1 road noise. It's only a five minute drive to get to Publix, K Mart, or a drug store. Marathon Key has several good restaurants and is only 1:15 drive from Key West.

When notified at 7:00 PM that our central A/C unit pump gave out, overflowing the drain pan, Maria had a AC repair man out WITHIN 45 MINUTES!! The AC was back to normal in record time.

We only gave this rating five stars, because there is not an option to give it six!! We thoroughly enjoyed the week, and would love to return again. Thanks for letting us share in your sunsets!

Family gathering at Sunset on the Gulf

  • 5 of 5

Our family came in from Mexico City, Toronto Canada, Melbourne Florida, Wellsboro PA, and New York City and spent a week

at Sunset On The Gulf. What a spacious, well decorated, gorgeous house. The pictures and write ups of the house are

dead on. We had mostly mild and sunny weather, but some of the days had a fair amount of wind with a little rain.

So, we didn't get diving conditions, but some in the group did some swimming and snorkeling. Sunset on the Gulf

is a perfect place to bring a large family together.

Beautiful home convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Nine of us celebrated my parents' 50th wedding anniversary in this well appointed home with beautiful amenities. Access to the sea, kayaks, snorkeling, hot tub, and gorgeous sunsets were highlights. Thank you for sharing your home and providing such a great space for our family. We would love to return.

A true "jem" in the Keys

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here and had a wonderful time! There were 7 of us (4 adults and 3 kids) and we had plenty of room to move around and live in. The house is well organized and stocked with everything you might need. It has the basics but we had to get more toilet paper, paper towels and laundry soap as the week went by. The house has been updated beautifully and is very comfortable and clean. The owner was prompt and helpful in answering our questions about the property and getting us the information. We love to fish and spent a lot of time on the dock at the house and on a boat (we rented this from a local company). There is a bait shop close to the house. We also love to snorkel and scuba dive. There are good places to snorkel around the dock and small islands very close to the house where we saw parrot fish, stingrays, snapper, crabs, coral, and tons of colorful smaller fish. We also went to Bahia Honda State Park to snorkel. We scuba dived with a company right there in Marathon and had a great time. Key West is not a bad drive and worth visiting while here (have to try frozen chocolate covered key lime pie on a stick from Key Lime Pie Co. - yum!) There are two grocery stores up the road and lots of restaurants. This is a perfect location for a vacation get-a-way! A different sunset to enjoy every evening and a great place to kick back and relax...a jem!

Nice. Smaller than what thought.

  • 3 of 5

House was comfortable. Accommodated 4 adults and kids but it was tight. The single beds were small and so was the futon. Beautiful views.

Owner's Response: The house is very spacious as has been noted by all other guests that have stayed loved and reviewed the property . All the rooms are large. The twin, king and queen beds are standard bed sizes, not any smaller. The futons in the rooms are for a family who wishes to have a young child with them in the room. Base on this guest comments, It makes me wonder how many people actually stayed at the property since the house easily accomodates 10 guests. We have two king sized large master bedrooms, one queen sized bedroom and a 4th bedroom with two captains beds that accommodate 4 children or adults; and the beds can be converter to King sized beds. This family also broke a chair and the box spring of one of the King sized beds. It saddens us that someone would take the time to write an inaccurate review.

Car: recommended

Marathon is in the heart of the Florida Keys. It is one hour from Key West, 30 minutes from Isla Morada and 45 minutes from Key Largo. It's Paradise to us. Slip away into breathtaking views, gulf breezes and access to swimming right off our deck and dock. It's advisable to wear water shoes and wear a diving flag as you explore our crystal clear waters. Part of the experience includes Kayaking (included 2 doubles with life vests) right from our steps. Relax in the Sun, use the 10 foot Jacuzzi Spa, and wait for the extraordinary sunsets that change by the minute. Beauty and relaxation surround you without ever leaving the property. However, your vacation will most certainly be enhanced by taking in some of the most notable beaches, restaurants, and shopping. We personally love the Old Seven Mile bridge that offers, walking and biking with unforgettable views. Sombrero Reef is beautiful for snorkeling or swimming and its about 3 miles off-shore. There are several other snorkeling diving sites in Marathon. Marathon has two beaches. Sombrero beach which is beautiful during the winter months. There is also Cocoplum Beach, which is a natural beach. All ocean beaches tend to accumulate seaweed in the summer depending on how the wind is blowing. I recommend a drive to Bahia Honda State Park where there are beaches on both the Ocean and Gulf sides. There are many different areas you can go to from our property. In addition, there is a great community park with tennis courts, basketball/hockey courts, skateboarding, soccer fields. baseball fields, shuffleboard courts, boccie ball, picnic areas etc. Marathon is also full of great restaurants and bars, a movie theater and a live theater with performances throughout the year. As a side note, some of the restaurants will be an experience in itself. Great food and ambiance that provide great entertainment and flavors for you palate.
