Definately would rent again

  • 5 of 5

Total experience was awesome. Plenty of room. Everything was provided, even towels and a crock pot. Nice to start our experience with a pitcher of cool lemon and lime water. Pool is a little small but kids had a great time in it. Loved having a code to enter the house so that everyone did not need a key. Michelle was very attentive and easy to reach for questions or concerns. Michelle thank you so much for all your efforts in making our stay so great.

Very Impressive and piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our family came down for a quick trip to the Keys last minute to get away and we walked right into pure paradise. The outside lights were on for us, TVs were all on, lemon ice water on the counter with the right amount of glasses for our entire party and loved the music, Michelle did an amazing job helping us all feel like we were all being treated like royalty. The house is nicely decorated and plenty of room for our whole party. We really liked the added ice machine on the back porch for the fishing and evening gathering and we can't all stop talking about the cool frig in the kitchen; something we all don't see daily. The owners really thought about guests coming in and what they would enjoy as it certainly was like that for us.

We sat around the pool almost daily and enjoyed the LP firepit and had smores with the neighbors who were really nice.

Parking is a bonus, large bait freezer, has a kayak, nice screened in back porch to see the kids swimming, and lots of fish right off the dock; my son caught a small nurse shark and one night we saw and heard dolphin right in the canal!

This home is perfect for large families with all the room and we all had enough seats to sit down at once and Marathon residents have been so wonderful with our stay and their hospitality. We don't see that often in tourist areas but Marathon was so welcoming, genuine and kind. We have this same home on our list to come back to, hopefully next year, and we can't say enough about our property manager, Michelle. She is simply the best to work with from booking the home, to answering all of our silly questions, and helping find a fishing charter; nailed it! Thank you and see you next year.

Lovely home in quiet location

  • 4 of 5

We arrived a day later than expected after some unanticipated problems with the airlines. We were more than ready to relax and were grateful to find the home in perfect order. The attention to detail and the little niceties showed to us that a caring person had prepared the home.

The furnishings were comfortable.

It was lovely to start and end our days sitting in the nicely furnished screened balcony area.

The swimming pool here was a great addition to our stay.

This was our fourth time to visit the area, having stayed in a different home each time.

This home was the best yet.

We eat most of our meals out and found that the area restaurants were in perfect order.

The area has mostly recovered from the major hurricane of just 6 months ago. Most places are back in business.

We definitely recommend this area.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you had a wonderful time down her in the gorgeous Island area! That was quite the journey it took to get down here with the flights and so happy to see you were able to enjoy yourselves in our home. We have done amazing things with our recovery on our islands and very thankful with guests like you who came down and were out and about during the day visiting the areas and providing your adventures with us. We look forward to hosting you again some day and thank you for your kind words in our review.

Liked it very much.

A really nice place. No post hurricane problems. It would have been nice to have twin beds in the lower bedrooms

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your wonderful review of our home. It was so wonderful to hear constant laughter from everyone who stayed and the pool area was greatly enjoyed. Beds are such a personal thing for everyone and thank you for your suggestion on the twin beds. So glad we have a pull out sleeper for the full house! Looking forward to hosting you all again.

Wow, this property was awesome. The home is very spacious. Michelle was great to work with, she is very attentive and really good at her job. The touches upon entering the house were just great. Books on the bed, music on in house, fresh orange infused water, new pool floats by the pool and soap in loofahs in all of the bathrooms. The house has everything you would need for vacation. There are plenty of towels, kitchen supplies, movies and pool toys. The downstairs is great for hanging out and watching movies, the fire pit was awesome and the pool was just fantastic. We used the kayak in the canal and out to the ocean which was really nice. If your looking to rent a property in the keys with lots of space and great amenities then this is the house for you. We will definitely be returning.

Owner's Response: Awe Holly! You are so thoughtful in your review of our home, we like it! This home is certainly perfect for families who like to spread out a little bit, isn't it? The fun and giggling from everyone tells us you all had a great time while here. We try to make your stay a little more special and of course spoiled if we can. Glad to see the books were enjoyed and looking forward to hosting you all again.

Perfect House For Our Large Group

  • 5 of 5

Our group consisted of my husband and I, my sister and her husband, their two boys and spouses, a toddler and a newborn and my best friend! Very large group!

The downstairs area consists of two bedrooms across from each other, with a sitting room and TV in between. One of the bedrooms is huge with a chaise lounge for relaxing. All three areas have sliding glass doors that open to the pool and canal area. Also downstairs is the laundry room (most convenient!) the bathroom and a spiral staircase that leads upstairs.

The upstairs has a huge open living area with plenty of space for our group. A large master bedroom with sliding glass doors that lead out to a large screened porch, and two additional bedrooms and a third bathroom. There is a dining room, as well as an additional table for seating our large party. The kitchen was fabulous! It was well stocked with everything you could need.

My husband and I and our two small dogs stayed downstairs in the larger bedroom and my friend took the other spare. This area is cooled by two window units in each bedroom that kept this area very cool (I would recommend the downstairs if you like it cool). It was convenient for us to take our dogs out without a hassle. The backyard has a pool, several sitting areas and a wonderful dock and cleaning station. My husband also made use of the kayak. It was very convenient to have the boat right there and the public boat ramp was only 3 blocks away to reload the boat (the canal leads to the gulf and then you travel south to enter another canal to the boat ramp area).

Upstairs was occupied by the rest of the family. Having the choice of the spiral staircase or coming up the outside steps was very convenient.

Michelle was awesome! Always on hand to answer questions and wanting to ensure we had a wonderful time!

I am not sure why some people rated this house less than 5 stars. Perhaps they are over picky or expected something different. You have to remember you are in the keys. There is going to be humidity no matter where you stay (they try to correct this downstairs by utilizing damp rid bags which were very effective). Someone complained of a mildew smell. I have asthma and never noticed an odor nor did I have any breathing problems and I am very sensitive to those things.

Overall I would highly recommend this house. Any small issues that arose Michelle addressed. We had a fantastic time!

PS it would be great if the dining table had the leaf to extend it :)

Owner's Response: Awe Rose, your review is so wonderful to read and thank you for your kind words! You were all such wonderful guests and I can see everyone had a wonderful time! Your group certainly brought our home laughter, joy, and lots of pool area time. I like the poker sticks for S'mores myself and many families have enjoyed that fire pit often. We look forward to hosting you and your family again!
