Great Place!

  • 5 of 5
We highly recommend this unit for your vacation destination. We have stayed at Marathon many times over the years, and this is the nicest place we have stayed. It is very clean and modern (not dated) and tastefully decorated. They have two kayaks and two bikes for your use. The kitchen is well stocked. We were also pleasantly surprised to find a flat screen TV in the bedroom too. Vinny and Linda are great - you won't be disappointed! We came with our two daughters ages 18 and 21.

Great Vacation Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5
This was a wonderful vacation home. The home was immaculate with every amenity that my own home has. Morning coffee on the veranda was spent on the water, watching the pelicans and laughing gulls dipping and diving. This quiet home was just a walk from the main road where good food and interesting activities such as the Dolphin Research Center and my favorite the Turtle Hospital were.

Lastly, the hosts were a lovely couple who are quite knowledgeable about the Keys and boating. They give you your space but will share their favorite spots or even enjoy a glass of wine with you at sunset if you ask.

This was our first vacation in Floriday Keys & we had a great time. Marathon is a great place to stay for us and Vinnie & Linda were very friendly and very helpful. Their property is well maintained & clean. We will stay with them again if we come to the Keys. Thanks Vinnie & Linda

Fantastic Vacation Week!

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful vacation spot in the Florida Keys! Marathon sits in the middle of the Keys and there is so much to do! Weather was outstanding! Linda and Vinny are wonderful hosts and terrific guides, and the adorable apartment is perfect for a couple or family of four. The peaceful setting overlooking the canal and Atlantic Ocean helps one to relax. The pelicans make sure to visit when outside enjoying the view. Make sure to have a car for all the excursions. Some of my favorite spots were the beautiful Sombrero beach, minutes away and the Dolphin Research Center. One beach is more beautiful than the other. Have lunch or dinner at Tranquility Bay, ride bicycles that are provided to Sunset Beach or visit nearby State parks - Curry Hammock or Bahia Honda where you can kayak and snorkel. Take a walk on Seven Mile Bridge where you can enjoy the incredible view, or the beautiful sunrise or sunset. About one hour from Key West, you can enjoy Ernest Hemingway's House, Fort Taylor and all the great restaurants and bars and swim in the water. Be sure to wear water shoes there, because it is a bit rocky. On day one, the stress of my hectic life disappeared and the laid back pace of the area helped to soothe the soul. Don't hesitate to book this place!

The property was very clean and centrally located. We were able to drive to all of the other Keys. Being able to have access to bicycles and kayaks was a plus. Although we were not fisherman, it was nice to have the water within feet of the building. It was really nice to have the capability of washing clothes when needed. The owners were very nice and friendly.

Just what we ordered!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have stayed in owner vacation rentals in several states and a few countries overseas...and...none was as well stocked with all of the necessities as Vince and Linda's rental...I mean it had EVERYTHING! Location was perfect for adventures anywhere up or down the Keys...there was plenty of informational brouchures and maps to aid you. The place was spotless. comfortable, cherry and welcomng....Truly, there is nothing to improve that would have made our stay any more enjoyable. In addition to a boat ride out to snorkle the reef be sure and visit The Turtle Hospital,the Dolphin Reasearch Center and the museum....they are all just a few minutes away. We ate fish every time we could and there was not a single disappointment with any of the local restaurants. Book with Vince and Linda and you won't go wrong....and we thank them for their knowledge and helpfulness.
