We had an amazing week ! We came down from Pennsylvania to celebrate our mothers 80th birthday. The house was clean and had balloons and a card for her; such a sweet touch. Had a great time sight seeing. It was a great week.

Peaceful Stay in the Keys!

  • 5 of 5

If you want to relax, this is the place for you. Very peaceful neighborhood right on the ocean. You can fish, kayak, and snorkel right from your dock. We caught loads of fish from the dock including large snapper and barracuda. You have your own small personal pool and hot tub. We actually saw no neighbors on either side of us for the entire week. Great view of the ocean and the sunsets were amazing. Convenient area for restaurants and shops. If you have your own boat, there is a deep water dock. You cannot access the fourth bedroom from the house without going outside to a private entrance. This might be a plus or minus, however you look at it.

A week in paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our five children and I had a wonderful week in the keys. We relaxed by the water, but mostly enjoyed all of the activities available to us. We went snorkeling, swimming, paddle-boarding, fishing and kayaking. We even rented a charter boat and went deep-sea fishing...and ate our catch for dinner!

I would recommend this rental. It was clean and private.

This is an excellent home

  • 5 of 5

This property had the most fantastic view of any place that we have stayed in the past 11 years. The house is very nice, with a screened in porch that is very large, where you could eat your meals if you wished. The family room/dining room is very large and comfortable also. This home is also convenient for shopping and restaurants and is located on a quiet street. We are looking forward to returning next year.

Like the title states this property has amazing sunsets! The private dock provided hours of fun whether it be fishing or just watching the all the different fishes in the water. The property was well maintained and clean inside and out. The pool was clean and warm. There was plenty of room for everyone, we had eight family members in the house at once and each had their own space. Mary and Gabby were very helpful after we realized we left some clothes at the house. I would recommend this property to anyone looking to stay on Marathon.

Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this great house. Having the dock, pool and hot tub just steps from the house was great. Plenty of room for all 8 of us. Mary was very helpful in getting us the right property to rent, which met all of our needs and Gabby couldn't of been more helpful and nice! Needed dish soap and she had it delivered to the house within an hour. Very clean property in a great location! Will definitely rent through Dolphin rentals on our next trip to the Keys!

Relaxing Keys Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a great week we had in the Florida Keys. We stayed in this wonderful house that came with everything we needed. Having a pool, dock, kayaks and paddle boards at our fingertips made the stay so much more enjoyable. Oh, and there was even a hot tub. We fished off the dock, started our day with a snorkel relaxed in the sun and just had a great week. This house was the perfect location too, central to everything we needed or wanted in the Keys.
