Seaside Escape! Boater’s Paradise!

In the heart of the Florida Keys, "La Casita" is on MM 52.

"La Casita" is a quaint 1/2 duplex canal home with 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom that can comfortably accommodate 4-6 guests.

This lovely home sits on the Atlantic Ocean side, just 2 houses from the ocean.

"La Casita" is really centrally located to a number of activities & easy access to different attractions, but you still will feel like you are "away from it all".

Located just 1 hour from Key West and 2 hours from Miami, our vacation home is a nice road trip destination. The Florida Keys Marathon Airport is a very easy commmute and the Key West International Airport is just 1 hour away.

A shaded deck area by the canal lends itself to a relaxing time; perfect for barbecuing, fishing from the canal, or just enjoying the cool breeze coming from the ocean.

With 35 feet of dock space at the beginning of the canal, it can accommodate a wide variety of boats.

Ideal for a couples’ getaway or a family trip!

*Sister vacation rental coming soon! If the dates you are interested are not available, please check back as we are getting ready to add another vacation rental (right next door) just like "La Casita". Also, if you are looking for a home that can accomodate a larger group or a big family, soon we will be able to rent both to you for more room & comfort.

We speak English & Spanish.

Great Week

  • 5 of 5
A great spot for exploring the Keys. Halfway between Key Largo and Key West. Well maintained, nicely appointed house with a great area out back. Enjoyed spending morning coffee time and evenings out back on the canal with a view out to the ocean. Rented a Kayak that we used right off the dock out back.

25th anniversary

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful, beautiful ,quiet place. Everything was clean,and neat as a pin... We so enjoyed everything.. The lunar eclipse during our stay was spectacular .. We got up at 200am to watch and could not have had a more perfect setting, on the back deck , lounging in the lounge chairs with a warm breeze and the beautiful canal, with views out to the Atlantic. It sure made for a memorable night. So happy we choose to stay at La Casita . Rene and Judy. Thank you so much!!!! We are already dreaming of returning for our 26th anniversary!

Excellent Experience

  • 5 of 5
This was my first time to the Florida Keys and I had a wonderful experience staying at La Casita and in Marathon in general. The place was clean and beautiful. Staying on the canal was beautiful and allowed for us to fish in our down time. This property is perfect for anyone looking to relax or get out and explore the town. We cabbed from the home to local restaurants for five dollars! Definitely a great vacation spot!

Cozy Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5
La Casita was exactly as described- spotlessly clean, all amenities, located centrally in Marathon. The deck facing the canal is perfect for morning coffee and evening drinks,in a quiet neighborhood. There was something to do every day, especially the Turtle Hospital, Crane Point, a bi-plane ride (awesome!), bike-riding at Bahia Honda Park. It was great to be able to choose what meals we ate in or out, and not be confined to a small hotel room. Judy was a pleasure to work, especially as this was a last-minute booking.

Comfortable Stay

  • 4 of 5
La Casita was a very comfortable place to stay during our Spring Break in the Florida Keys. The fact that it was on a canal so close to the ocean was great for fishing and kayaking straight from the back yard. Very easy to find location was and a nice central point to visit many attractions in the area. Quiet location. Comfortable bedrooms with lots of storage. Big kitchen and comfy furniture. Judy was great to deal with and made sure we were comfortable when we arrived.
