About the area

Marathon Key is a ten mile long family-oriented island community conveniently situated in the middle of the Keys. Marathon is comprised mainly of Vaca Key, Deer Key and Grassy Key. It lies in the heart of the Keys, just 30 minutes from Islamorada and 45 minutes to an hour from Key West depending on traffic. Residents, snowbirds and visitors enjoy Marathon's fishing heritage, an old-Keys lifestyle and seafaring traditions, a theme celebrated in the area's accommodations, such as private waterfront vacation homes, beach-side inns and tropical family-style resorts. Marathon holds annual seafood festivals like the Marathon Seafood Festival and the historic 7-mile Bridge run. Marathon also has plenty of waterside restaurants just minutes from the house that serve the freshest fish and seafood. Florida Keys Marathon International Airport is just steps from the house. It accommodates a full range of services for general aviation enthusiasts and corporate jet operators. Two full-service FBO's offer fuel, maintenance, tie-down, pilot and passenger facilities. Ground transportation options are available including an airport shuttle, car rental agencies and taxi service. Also located steps from the house is The Florida Keys Aquarium Encounters. It features a coral reef exhibit and a predatory fish habitat housed in a 200,000-gallon interconnected saltwater aquarium. You can enjoy an immersive, interactive experience where they can touch, feel and feed reef fish, invertebrates, stingrays and even sharks. Crane Point Museum, Nature Center & Historic Site, visitors can hike through a wondrously preserved tropical hardwood grove and visit the home of an early 20th-century settler family.

“Great Home”

Reviewed 6 Jan 2016

Great place to stay, owner easy to reach and help if needed. Great dock for your boat, easy to park tie up and launch. House very clean and felt like home, I plan to stay there again

“Outstanding home”

Reviewed 26 Mar 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!!”

Reviewed 23 Mar 2015

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.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review. We were very pleased to know that you and your family had a good time. Hope you come back.

“good place with great backyard”

Reviewed 3 Jan 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.

“Excellent experience!”

Reviewed 30 Dec 2013

This property was very clean, and is in an excellent location. We enjoyed everything there and highly recommend this property!

“Great Lobster week”

Reviewed 6 Sep 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”

Reviewed 10 Aug 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”

Reviewed 24 Jun 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.
