About Ramona Castellvi

It was raining and my husband piled the kids in the car & said lets see if we can find a house? We saw a For Sale By Owner, got out of the car, looked at the house and fell in love! We closed within a month. It's not your typical Keys decorated home. We have never rented it so there are many extras. My husband enjoyed fishing very much and he wanted a place where he could get away from everything. He had planned on retiring here and spending at least part of our time in Marathon. So...unfortunately, my husband passed away very unexpectedly and now I do not get to go down there as often. So it's my turn to share our very special home with you!

Ramona Castellvi purchased this house in 2003

Why Ramona Castellvi chose Marathon Shores

If you love the fishing, then it is perfect! You can park your boat safely on the 100ft space. Yo do not have to travel far to be on the open ocean. It is a few feet away.

If you are not into fishing, then its a wonderful house to just relax in. Its very comfortable, many amenities as well as 7 tvs. The kitchen is very large.

The location is unbelievable for anyone flying or if you need torent a car. The airport is literally walking distance from the home. We have done it often. The location is close to great restaurants and beaches! 5 Homes from open ocean! Publix grocery store is less than a mile & it has an amazing selection of very good wine. There is a cinema that plays 2 movies all week as well as a playhouse. There are some great little restaurants that I can recommend...Barracuda, Plaza Grille, Lazy Days- which you can access by boat or land.

It's the Keys baby!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home. Very comfortable. We had everything we needed. 4 couples stayed with plenty of room. Loved the dock out back. We kept the boat there all week with the trailer in the driveway, very convenient. Motored right out to the Atlantic or through Vaca Cut to the Gulf. Plenty of great fishing plus everything you need nearby. When we were at the house, we spent most of our time on the patio. The moonlit nights were beautiful. Highly recommended.

There is really only one way to do the Keys, and this is it!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautifully adorned and the pictures don't do it any justice. The house is located just off the main drag in the middle of everything yet very quiet and removed from anything that would be considered hustle and bustle. Your back yard is a mix of an entertainment patio and a private marina. If you enjoy boating, let me tell you that this is paradise found. My family and I spent the mornings fishing, the afternoon enjoying swimming or snorkeling, and the evenings dinning out or relaxing. I simply will not visit the Keys unless I stay here.

Casa de Gallo is a lovely, comfortable home and we had an excellent stay.

  • 5 of 5

Casa de Gallo is a beautifully decorated house and clearly very well loved and taken care of. It feels like an elegant home and not a vacation rental. The furnishings and art work are all first class and it was very clean. The beds were so, so comfortable that we had a hard time getting up in the morning! We cooked many meals in and had everything we needed. The house is located on a quiet street and is centrally located for exploring the Florida Keys. Since Marathon Key is the middle key, we found much to do in both directions. Traffic was typically pretty slow, so we learned to allow plenty of time for travel - we went to Key West several times and it took slightly more than an hour. Close by, Sombrero Beach, the turtle rescue, the dolphin rescue and Crane Point Nature Center were great fun. It was also very handy to have a Winn Dixie grocery store in close proximity. The one thing we could have used was an instruction book that told us how to work things like the lights and the dvd player and contained restaurant and activity recommendations. I would highly recommend this property to friends.
