Great house, Great Location
My Mother-in law rented this house for the week after Christmas for her and her children's families. In all there were 8 of us, 2 teenagers, 1 toddler and the rest adults. This house was perfect for that. The kids slept in the second living room. There was one pull down bed attached to the wall and a day bed with a trundle. Perfect amount of space for the kids. Each group of adults got their own bedroom. The kitchen is beautiful. Looks like it was just updated. Plenty of space to store groceries. Additionally, there is all the pots and pans you could every need, a coffee maker, blender and expresso maker. Outside there is a grill.The tiki hut out side provides shade and a nice area to eat outside. The hottub was very nice. Lots of fish and wild life to see in the canal. We saw baracuda, garr, small bait fish, and even a manatee.Only about 6 or 7 house away from the opening to the Gulf so it is easily seen from the porch/dock. Marathon proved to be the perfect location in the Keys and this house was centrally located. If we come back we will definately be checking on this house. Thanks
Can't wait to come back -This house has everything
We have rented 6 different houses in Marathon over the past years always looking for something 'better' -well this year we finally found that something better in Kon Tiki. This house had everything to accomodate 5 individuals comfortably -the listing does not mention the house has a gianormous brand new washer/dryer, and the second living room can be used easily as a fourth bedroom. The hot tub was clean (serviced weekly) and was a great place to relax in the evenings -a slight dilema was choosing who would have to get out to make the next round of drinks in the blender (brand new blender too!)There is a biking sidewalk that goes from the side road of the house all the way to the 7 mile bridge and we used the kayak many times to go out exploring the gulf. We were able to make a full Thanksgiving dinner with no problems - the kitchen had every pot & pan and even all the spices - all the little items like paper towels, dish saop and garbage bags were already there too. All the beds were comfortable and every bedroom had very large closets that fit our suitcases, diving gear, and clothes. The neighborhood is quiet, friendly, and one could park 4-5 cars in the extra large driveway. The tiki hut in the back has ceiling fans and a patio set that was comfortable. The owner was around and provided us with his own fishing poles -there are mostly pin fish in the canal but we did catch a few snapper and grunt fish. What a great time we had -everytime we were not out and about, the house provided extra activities and entertainment. We hope to back very soon! Thanks to Jim and Brad for great memories!
Activity and Interests
Turn left at Kmart on Sombrero Beach Road and you'll find one of the nicest beach in the Middle Keys. The Keys are not known for their beaches but Sombrero is a beautiful beach and it is right here in Marathon!
Marathon - Pigeon Key 7 Mile Bridge
A tiny five acre island just below the seven mile bridge was once the
home to the workers who built Henry Flagler's Railroad which connected the Keys to northern commerce. Enjoy the relatively long walk along the seven mile bridge to get out to the Island and take the Trolley ride back. Some of you may remember The famed Seven Mile Bridge and Pigeon Key in the movie "True Lies" featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Marathon - Museum and Nature Center
The most important historical and archaeological site in the Keys.
Evidence of Prehistoric Bahamian and Colombian tribes are found here.
On site you will also find The Museum of Natural History of the
Florida Keys, an archive of ancient artifacts found in the area and
The Children's Museum of the Florida Keys which is an indoor/outdoor
facility with ecological exhibits for the kids! Don't miss The Adderley home. Early immigrant George Adderley and his Family lived a simple life among tropical trees such as the lignumvitae whose hard wood was once used to make bowling balls. The family survived by making charcoal and gathering and selling sponges. One trail will take you to the Marathon Wild Bird Center which is a hospital for many of the native birds of the Marathon Area! Feeding the fish is also a hit with the kids with large resident Barracuda and Shark! And I have to mention Casa Iguana, the home to many species of Iguanas ranging from 3 to 6 feet long.
Marathon - Turtles
Turtle Hospital Educational Tour
Another can't miss experience is the Turtle Hospital Educational Tour
which many of our guests have included as a highlight of their
vacation. During the Tour you will learn of the many challenges facing
the Turtles in todays ocean waters and what we are doing to support
their existence now and into the future. Of course you'll also meet
Bubble-butt and many of their other residents and have a good time as
Price of admission includes an approximate 45 minute educational guide
of the hospital with a presentation and a 45 minute guide through the
sea turtle rehabilitation area.
Dolphin Research Center on Grassy Key
The true home of Flipper! Don't miss this place; they are dedicated to
training, studying, and protecting the Dolphins! I recommend reserving
a spot to swim with one of the Dolphins, it is well worth the money!
Famous people from around the world visit this facility each year
because they are the best. You will be amazed at what you will learn
and the gift shop is quite nice as well.

This is a must do while in Marathon on vacation. Marathons newest gem is Aquarium Encounters as seen on the TV show Tanked. At Florida Keys Aquarium Encounters attractions revolve around their unique aquarium encounters.
