Gulfpointe I - Marathon, Florida Keys
April 9, 2015
Had a fantastic time at the Gulfpointe condo in Marathon, FL. The location was great, the condo was spacious and had all the items needed to make our trip memorable for our family of three.
The pool is great - spent a lot of time there. Beaches in the Keys are less than average compared to the rest of Florida and in other states...just too many rocks. The balconies on both floors provide great outdoor square footage to enjoy grill, meals, reading a book or just enjoying the warmth.
We have never had such a great week of weather. Our March/April stay saw high temps in the lower 80s and lows in the lower 70s. We traveled down to Key West one day, and had a good time. Wouldn't recommend any more time than that for those with families. Marathon has just about every thing you need in terms of groceries, shopping, restaurants, etc.
Great places to walk and just enjoy the warmth are everywhere. There is a fair amount of traffic on Hwy 1. Didn't bother us much, but you will have to deal with it on occasion.
Only negatives about the condo:
-king size mattress in master suite is a little uncomfortable
-early morning garbage pickup was extremely loud (two days)
I would definitely recommend this condo for a family / romantic / getaway vacation.
