vacation rental description

Anyone can rent you their house, I provide a tropical resort with concierge services.  This house has it all - a 5 min walk to Sombrero Beach, hot tub, heated private pool, ocean views, a "fisherman's" dock, high speed wireless Internet, etc.
Marathon recently spent $5M renovating Sombrero beach - it's one of the best beaches in the Keys.  Our 12' X 28' heated pool is on the west side, so it gets full sunshine for sun bathing in your Speedo or for Iggy the Iguana to get a cool sip of water (find Iggy in the pool picture).  The back yard is landscaped with tropical plants and trees, ensuring your privacy.  Enjoy the hot tub, but please remember the Rule that my daughter Caitlin made up when she was visiting with her friends from college during semester break - What goes on in the hot tub, STAYS in the hot tub! 


The fisherman's dock has a large fish cutting station, electric, plumbing, sink, lights for when you return in the dark, a hose for your boat and fish cutting station, and rocket launchers on the pilings to place your rods so they don't get stepped on. Use the freezer out back for your bait, ice, and your catch.  And what's the worst part about catching a load of fish?  Answer: Having to clean the fish when you get back in the scorching Florida sun.  But I have taken care of that - I have let the mangroves grow up and over the dock at the fish cutting station, so you'll be in the shade when you return(see picture).  There's even a shower to cool you off when you come back. We are on the ocean side, so you'll have quick ocean access to some of the best fishing in the world.


Underwater lights have been installed in the canal - you'll be mesmerized by the fish while you sit on the park bench at night. Let the children cast a line and Voila - they caught a fish in the Keys - something they will always remember. Mangrove snapper, tarpon, angel fish, sting rays, and nurse sharks have all been caught off of my dock. A dozen tarpon have been spotted lurking in the shadows (see photo). The light attracts bait fish and the bait fish attract tarpon - tarpon are a fighting fish - you can't eat them, as they are all muscle - and if you hook one, you had better hang on for the ride - you might hook one, but not many will 'land' one - they will literally come straight out of the water and spit that hook out - by the August timeframe, and being creatures of habit, the tarpon know that they can come over to my house and have a snack - these pics were taken in August one year.  Peak time for tarpon is August, September, October, and the begining of Novemeber (before the first big winter chill hits the Keys).  Of course rods and reels are provided.Rods and reels are provided.

Spectacular sunrises over the Atlantic are available off the master bedroom balcony.

High speed wireless Internet, with coverage out to the pool, will let you send your pics to everyone before you leave Paradise A brand new 40" plasma TV is the centerpiece of the family entertainment center. Premium cable TV offers HBO, etc.


The house sits on an unusually large lot, large enough to fit two houses. It sits way back from the street, ensuring your privacy (see photo). Hot tub is on the back deck with a picnic table and a Weber gas grill. We also provide an extra tank of propane, just in case you run out when you're cooking that special dinner.


Our house is fully furnished with everything you'd expect,towels, linens, microwave, toaster, etc...and yes, there's a blender. We also go the extra mile and provide the miscellaneous household products such as laundry detergent, dish soaps, paper towels, etc. - no need to hassle with these upon your arrival.


You will sleep like a baby in our beds, as they all have have 600 thread count sheets. All 3 bedrooms have tropical themes as. Family room and master bedroom has a 40" plasma TV. When you arrive you'll have chocolates on your pillows and fresh cut flowers on your table. Master bedroom has a king size bed, the 2nd bedroom has a queen size bed, and two twin beds are in the 3rd bdr. Our house is stocked with plenty of board games for those days/nights you feel like chillin' at the house.


This house has it all!

house rental amenities

Here's a suggestion that's a big hit with my guests - grill your dinner down at the beach one night - there's picnic tables and grills, the kids can play in the playground area - or, if no kids, a bottle of wine at sunset will be perfect!
And if you're new to Marathon, don't worry.  I will provide you with a list of things in the area (Turtle hospital, snorkeling, swim with the Dolphins, etc.).  I will also provide a list of local restaurants with descriptions, and I highlight the ones my family prefers.  Here's some quotes from my restaurant review:
1. 'Without question, this is the best place around for intimacy and service.  This is where Dianna and I go for that special dinner (anniversary, or when I’m in the dog house, etc.) – don’t worry about the exterior – entrance is around the back – service is slow – so take your time.  Plan on an hour and a half to 2 hours for dinner.'
2. 'This restaurant attracts an interesting mix of people, including snowbirds, vacationers, weekend warriors, honeymooners, anglers, divers, sailors, power boaters, musicians, musician wannabes, people-watchers, bikers, deadbeats, fugitives, witness protection program members, and of course, locals. Come on your yacht, ragtop, powerboat, dingy, kayak, surfboard, bike, pickup, Jeep or car -- and come as you are -- the dress is strictly casual.  This place is the closest restaurant/bar to my house by car or boat.'
3. 'It’s not on the water, but the reason you’re going there is to fill up and not eat ‘til dinner.  Had the “XXX’s Breakfast” – 2 eggs, toast, potatoes, 2 pancakes, 2 sausage, and 2 strips of bacon – a whopping $9.  (and yes, they serve grits).  No matter what time you go here for breakfast, you won’t be eating lunch at noon.'

activities and attractions in Marathon The Florida Keys

Sombrero Beach features picnic areas complete with grills, brand new shower facilities indoors and outdoors, beach volleyball, a landscaped grassy nature walk, and a long sandy beach with a roped-in
swimming area, suitable for swimming and snorkeling.


Of course, a five minute walk to one of the Keys best beaches is always on the agenda, day or night!

I call my guests the day after they arrive, just to make sure they don't have any unanswered questions or concerns.

traveler reviews for this marathon house rental

Perfect Marathon Vacation spot

Review submitted: February 18, 2013   Date of arrival: February 8, 2013

We found Neil’s (the property owner) Marathon rental listed on Home Away website. We contacted Neil and he could not have been more accommodating.

The house was extremely clean and very well maintained. The layout was perfect for two traveling couples. The property has the privacy to enjoy the pool and the hot tub. The home is close to the beach, shopping and a large choice or restaurants from the Stuffed Pig, to the Plaza Grill. We really enjoyed the Island Seafood restaurant for dinner.

Neil provided us with many suggestions for activities and dining. He checked in with us to make sure that all was going well with our stay and he offers a number of items for the house use that we did not have to purchase. (Paper towels, dish soap, laundry detergent).

We would highly recommend this property to anyone who wants to enjoy Marathon or the Florida Keys area. Key West and Key Largo are easy convenient drives as this property is centrally located.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: Anyone can rent you their house, I provide a resort with concierge services.

Amenities, Privacy, Quiet, Oh My!

Review submitted: February 8, 2013   Date of arrival: January 26, 2013

Gorgeous and quiet Sombrero Beach is just a few minutes walk from this wonderful house located right on a quiet canal. We caught the sunset there nightly, and walked there every morning. Lush plants, trees, and beautiful landscaping make you feel like you're on your own island. The neighborhood was quiet, the backyard was filled with a large heated pool (with color changing light that even adults love!), a hot tub above the deck, and a porch off the master bedroom to view the sunrise every day. The house had everything we needed (lots and lots of towels, space, blender, dishwasher, fans and A.C., decks, fishing area off dock, private yards, quiet/barely there neighbors, etc), and Neil gave us all the information we could possibly need while touring the area. It was like having a personal concierge. Neil is a fantastic person to rent from with a great sense of humor. This house and neighborhood are closely located to beaches, restaurants, and parks, yet far enough from the hustle and bustle of Rt. 1 that you forget there are people around! We highly recommend this wonderful home that has everything for the most reasonable prices around, best service, and comfortable rental transactions between renter and owner. Enjoy!

Owners response: Anybody can rent you their house, but when you rent my house, you get a vacation package. My house is more like a resort, lushly landscaped, and furnished with everything you'll need. I take care of my guests, and they especially like my list of local restaurants. I highlight the ones that my family prefers - so you'll get good food, at a good price, in an unbelievable waterfront setting.

Awesome time!

Review submitted: May 18, 2012   Date of arrival: May 5, 2012

Had a great time with 5 other people. Plenty of room, Pool was great! Boys enjoyed fishing off of the dock. Master bedroom has beautiful ocean view, sunrise in morning and at night the moon and stars are spectacular. My only problem was that I was attacked by no see ums!! A couple other people had a few bites, but none as severe as mine. Use bug spray dillgently! Fun time will be had by all in Marathon.
