Outstanding home

March 26, 2015

This is a first class property to stay in with a larger family! When we arrived and opened the front door the first thing out of everyone's mouth was WOW!! The down stairs is very open with very modern appliances. All of the bed rooms are located upstairs which consisted of a King in the master, a Queen and 2 rooms with doubles. 2 full baths upstairs ans a 1/2 bath down stairs. The TV looked a little dated but we weren't there to watch TV so it didn't bother us at all. Although the pictures showed grass in the back yard, it was all gravel, again, not a big deal to us what so ever. There was plenty of space to tie up both of our boats. There are some pilings for tying up to that accommodated our small boat (14 foot) and plenty of sea wall to tie our larger boat (27 foot) where the davits used to be. If you have large fenders, its not an issue at all. The deck provided us an excellent place to enjoy morning coffee as well as evening beverages as well. I would highly recommend this house to anybody with 6-8 people in there group. A couple of very minor negatives...the deck does need a little attention as there are some screw heads starting to come up and the water pressure in the master shower isnt the greatest in the world. Very minor issues in my book

Perfecto!!

We have stayed in plenty of places in Marathon, though this one takes the "prize" We had 5 adults and 4 kids with us and we fit very comfortably in this house. It was very clean and spacious. With the deck out back, we would sit every morning and evening out there. We loved the fact that it was a house and not a duplex and felt very comfrtable in the neighborhood, where you are close to just about everything. We would definitely stay there again.

good place with great backyard

January 4, 2014

The house was a bit small for 8 people, If they had gone for a smaller furniture in the living/dining room,the room would have seemed bigger. But the Backyard and the view compensated for any flaws inside the house. It was just so beautiful and relaxing.

Great Lobster week

September 6, 2012

We stayed at the house from Aug 2nd thru the 11th and found the house to very clean and comfortable. The downstairs has a very open floor plan and the kitchen is awesome. THe furnishings were in great shape. The property is a point lot with approx 200ft of waterfront but only a dock for 1 boat. If you had a 2nd boat it would have to be tied off the coral wall where davits used to be. Great access to the Gulf and Ocean. I would definitly stay there again.

Large, Terrific Home Rental

August 10, 2011

2-story house with 4-bedrooms located on gulf side. Conveniently located to vaca cut (within 10mins from house by boat). Large area to dock your boat. In fact, had enough room to dock 2 boats (18-foot and 22-foot). Fish cleaning table with hose next to dock. Enough room at house that we were able ot store both boat trailers on premises. House is well maintained with all conveniences. Negative comments (which are very minor): hedge over-growing side walk in front of house, vegetation partially covering steps by back deck (doesn't look quite as pictured), Owner very nice and accessible by phone and willing to address any problems that we may have had. In summary, I would definitely rent this property again. Of all the sites I've visited, this is definitely one of the best deals out there for large parties to stay in one household at a very reasonable price.

Great house for large family/friends

June 24, 2008

This house was immaculately clean when we arrived. Downstairs is living area that is large and open, upstairs are the bedrooms. This is good is some go to bed earlier than others. The house has everything you need. We caught Mangrove snapper off the deck every day and even caught small tarpon 3 nights. The owners were very friendly and informative about local restaurants and fishing. It is betweeen the Vaca Cut and Seven Mile bridge on the gulf side. I highly recommend this house.
