Why Alice Koelle chose Marathon

I fell in love with this home the second I walked through the door. It is simply spectacular!

What makes this house unique

Two sides of water, and all that oceanfront, with views from the living room and kitchen, sunrises, sunsets, water birds, manatees, porpoises, turtles, octopus, you name it, it swims by!

Neat, clean, great location, nicely outfitted

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four loved our time here! Indoors: the cottage has a fully equipped kitchen with up-to-date appliances, great view from the dining area, linens were ample and nothing worn or dated, bedrooms on separate sides of house with a bath for each, open kitchen/dining/livingroom floor plan. Outdoors: beautiful view, chairs/small tables for casual dining or relaxing, safe place to dock a boat on canal side, fish cleaning table w/water, gas grill, nice size outdoor storage room with small freezer and space to store fishing/dive gear. Owner was friendly and professional; a pleasure to work with. We recommend this cottage without hesitation and will definitely stay there again.

Beautiful Place To Relax And Fish

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed a week with our little dog and loved the place!! The location was excellent and close to everything we needed. I spent the vast majority of my time fishing off the seawall and caught or hooked fish as small as snapper to a few so large that my heavy duty grouper outfit couldn't slow them down!!! The view was fantastic from the entire back of the house from the living room to the kitchen was the Atlantic ocean. Being a fisherman and a lover of the sea I was "never" bored with the scenery. I would "HIGHLY" recommend this beautiful little rental to anyone that loves the ocean and a nice clean place to stay!

Great get-a-way!

  • 5 of 5

Great home for a great relaxing vacation. It has everything you need for a good stay. If I owned a oceanfront home, and furnished it inside and out with what makes it comfortable, it would be just like this! My wife and I Love Marathon area and this home.

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had the pleasure of spending 2 weeks enjoying this wonderful property. Reading the description of this property and viewing the pictures just does not show the true beauty and peacefulness of this property. I would highly recommend this rental without hesitation.

The owner is very pleasant, accommodating and easy to communicate with. My questions and emails were answered promptly.

If you are looking for a great location, a nice clean and modern home, and a beautiful ocean view - you've found it with this property.

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

You will not be disappointed should you be fortunate enough to rent this property! My wife and I spent 2 weeks at this beautiful ocean side home. The view is spectacular. Sitting in a very private and quiet patio, facing the Atlantic you are about 20 feet from the water. There is a very nice deep water canal that is on the west side of the property. The house is very comfortable with a large living area, a large fully furnished kitchen, a large master bedroom and full bath, as well as a nice guest room with a full bath. The neighborhood is very quiet and the residents we met were very friendly.
