Reserved and paid for 8 months prior - owner cancelled the week before with no reason

  • 1 of 5

Renters beware, I reserved this house for rental in October 2015 for mini lobster season July 2016. Final payment was made in April - one week prior to our vacation I was informed that the owner had changed his mind thankfully coco plum rental was able to put us up in comparable accommodations but we incurred extra cost in boat trailer storage and just general stress of figuring alternative parking etc one week prior to vacation. I would only use this person for a last resort, not reliable.

Great house, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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

Nearest Airport : Key West International at 50 Miles Nearest Beach : Sombrero Beach at 3 Miles

Sombrero Beach

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.

So much more than an aquarium this venue is a destination to see, touch and learn about the unique marine life in the Florida Keys. Sombrero Beach is a free public beach located near mile marker 50 or if you drive to the other end of the famed Seven Mile Bridge you can visit Bahia Honda a Fabulous state park.
