About Mary and Stephanie

When we are not enjoying our vacation home in Marathon, we are suffering with the not so hot weather in Delaware, working at our jobs and doing home improvements to our house on the weekends. HGTV is always on!

Mary and Stephanie purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Mary and Stephanie chose Central Florida Keys

We started vacationing in the keys about 5 years ago and got the keys disease immediately. We just love it. It's so laid back and you really can come as you are! Just bring your flip flops, tshirts and shorts!

We liked the keys so much we started looking for a vacation home about 3 years ago and ended up narrowing it down to Marathon due to the location.

We had stayed at other keys previously but the convenience of Marathon won us over. It's right in the middle of the keys and has the convenience of stores and restaurants very close by in addition to still providing that keys experience.

We truly hope you have a wonderful vacation whichever home you decide to stay in!

Loved this place! It was very clean and nicely decorated. The owners provided EXCELLENT costumer service, making sure everything was going well for us during our stay. It is conveniently located to anywhere you want to go. Close to the grocery store, restaurants and other stores. Also convenient to get around by water! Quick and easy access from the dock to get out fishing, snorkeling, tubing, or stopping at a waterfront restaurant. I would highly recommend this property to friends and family.

Very well done

  • 5 of 5

The pics don't do this place justice. Property if I had to guess is maybe 3-4 years old. Very clean. Very good lay out. Kitchen appliances looked new and worked great.

We fish, and the outdoor freezer came in very useful. Grill was used 2-3 times and was in great shape. Outdoor sheds are well stocked in case you forgot to bring fishing poles, snorkels, cooler. We even left behind 2-5 gallon buckets and a fishing net for the next fisherman!

Manatee were seen from the dock on few occasions. Canal was very clean and neighbors were friendly.

Charming experience!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully maintained and equipped house! Everything is new, functioning perfectly. Grill, fishing rods, deck with umbrellas, satellite tv (it was football bowl season), A/C, etc. Nice, convenient canal for our boat, enjoyed the manatee who visited almost daily! The owners are extremely well-organized, reachable, and helpful. We would not hesitate to stay again, and hope to soon. I have rented in Keys several times, and this was the cleanest, and best maintained house, I have rented. Thanks!

Couldn't have been happier!

  • 5 of 5

We were so, so pleasantly surprised at how clean, comfortable, very tastefully decorated and well-appointed this newer home is. We had 4 adults, 2 children and hosted company a couple of evenings for dinner and had plenty of room, cooking and eating space. Conveniently located in the heart of Marathon, great space for our boat and nice fish cleaning station. Outside cooking area is perfect, good room on the patio and a shed filled with rods, beach chairs, boogie boards, etc. 10 minute boat ride to Marathon inlet and seven mile bridge. Great restaurants and activities all nearby. The owners were exceptionally nice, responsive and accomodating to some last minute glitches in our schedule. I would highly recommend this property and would definitely stay here again.

A Great Place to stay in the Keys!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our 4 children (teenagers) stayed at the cottage for a week in June. When we pulled up to the cottage I thought it was going to be too small for us, but once inside I quickly saw everything was going to be fine. The bedrooms were nice-sized and the kitchen/living room areas offered us plenty of space to hang out together. We gathered around the large tv in the living room a couple of nights and watched some Fifa world cup soccer :) Several nights we sat around the island in the kitchen and played cards together. The neighbors were very friendly. One neighbor came over and introduced herself and brought us some fresh fish soup she had made from their catch that day. The neighbors usually played island music in the evenings (not loud and they always turned it off by 10pm) so my daughter liked to hang out on the back deck at night because she said it just felt relaxing and tropical. The home was very clean and had everything we needed. It was very handy to have a washer and dryer too!

We spent a day visiting Pigeon Key and very much enjoyed the historical information as well as some snorkeling we did there. We made 2 day trips to Key West, one to sightsee and one to snorkel. It was only about 45 miles, but with slower speed limits, is about an hour and a half drive. But the drive down was beautiful and it was amazing to count the number of iguanas you see along the road! We also went to a little souvineer shop called "Marooned in Marathon" and everyone was able to get a little something to remember our trip. One night we got pizza from the 7 Mile Pizzeria and we loved it! Our favorite beach was at Bahia Honda State Park, just a short drive down the road.

Our overall experience was wonderful! I would recommend this property to anyone visiting the keys. Thank you Mary and Stephanie for letting us stay in your home!!!!
