you prefer, you may simply sit and enjoy the ebb and flow of the tide.
In these environmentally friendly surroundings, you can observe, in a
way you never have, marine life and native birds in unobstructed
waters. Just off the property you can find nature trails leading to
quiet beaches. The patio offers views of a back yard aquarium and the
spectacular beauty of the Florida Keys. Launch our canoe or kayaks

easy-to-follow, marked mangrove trails. *

traveler reviews for this marathon villa rental

great, quiet get away

Review submitted: July 11, 2013   Date of arrival: June 29, 2013

This is a great place to stay. We will definitely return. Very clean and it really felt like we were staying at a friend's place; very comfortable. Great place for paddle boarding and kayaking. Even better if you had a boat. From our paddle boards we saw nurse sharks, sea turtles, tons of fish, rays, and even a manatee. From the sliding glass door you are literally 12 feet from the water... tons of fish right behind the house, along with herons and osprey. You are close to Islamorada, but we spent more time in Marathon, which is around 15 miles away. Great walking paths at Long Key Park right next door... and a small, but nice beach at Curry Hammock park around 8 miles west.

Owner let you use their kayaks and canoe... floats, coolers, beach chairs... They even provided the coffee and shampoo in the shower... Like I said, it's like staying a friends house for the week. Totally comfortable being there.

The only complaint... Window units for AC are a bit noisy, but you get used to it... and the tv and internet are on satellite... on rainy days we lost both signals so we had to read...

Thanks Jerry and Deborah for sharing with us.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, families with teenagers, sight seeing, romantic getaway
