We were very pleasantly surprised at the location of this rental. We loved the view of the sunrises over the water. The home was very adequately supplied with all kitchen utensils. Grill outside had plenty of gas. They had fresh flowers to please Joan on the table. Décor was very nice around the house. Parking was adequate for 3 cars. We were right on the canal and within view of the Atlantic. Enjoyed seeing manatees, iguanas, gulls herons, frigates and osprey. We were centrally located in Marathon and had access to several fresh fish markets, great restaurants, grocery story, liquor stores and fishing charters. Loved it so much, we are going back next year.
“Castaway - enjoyable escape from a Indiana winter”
This was our first time renting "Castaway" and we were pleasantly surprised at the interior of the home and its' setting. The Patrick's had a décor inside that we enjoyed and the views from the deck towards the ocean was a beautiful one that only Nature can design. The weather cooperated in allowing us to grill our seafood almost every night outside and we enjoyed getting up in time to see almost every sunrise. Iguanas, manatees and many species of birds were seen. If you are an outdoor person - Marathon, Florida is centrally located for many various activities.
“Functional, comfortable house”
The house provided everything we needed for a comfortable stay in the Keys. The Kitchen is spacious, and the terrace is huge table seating for 6 and several lounge Chairs. The terrace overlooks the Canal where lovely Pelicans perch atop mooring poles. Quiet neighbourhood, about 7minutes drive from supermarket and Sombrero Beach. We would love to stay there again.
“Quiet Place on a Canal”
Great little place on a quiet canal. Very clean, and has all of the needed amenities to feel at home. Would definitely rent again.
“Beautiful view and such a relaxing stay!”
We stayed for 6 nights and had a lovely stay. Everything we needed was there and we enjoyed barbecuing, using the kayak and exploring the keys. The dockside location is superb
“Hot! Wonderfully Hot”
This was the best vacation I have had in 30 years. Castaway was the best place I could have imagined. It has a beautiful view 24/7. I had my 24' boat at my doorstep.... Totally ruined me! I can't wait to go back. Don was the best as well....David and Jennifer
“Nice Place and area”
Nice rental. Fishing was fun off of the deck and a great free beach just a minute down the road. The area is close to stores and some great restaurants with live entertainment. The house was cute and pretty much had everything you need. It could use a few beach chairs and a paddle boat or kayak for those folks that fly in. The owner Phil was great. Thanks for the adventure.
“Perfect Floridian Bungalow”
This home was everything we were looking for our family vacation. Comfortable, clean, cozy, great kitchen, nice dining space and perfectly located on the canal. Washing facilities and parking for 2 cars. Perfect place to unwind. Great for 4 adults, 3 couples or a family of 4. Quiet neighborhood and close to everything you need.
“For two fishermen, all we could ask for.”
perfect two/two set up for two guys or two couples.Wonderful kitchen set up for any ability up to pro chief Great ocean view. All you could ask for.
We just returned from kicking back at Castaway. We had a great time and enjoyed the house. The best part was the large dock overlooking the canal and ocean. It is shaded in the afternoon so it's a perfect place to to relax and enjoy the ocean breezes. To experience the keys, you really need to stay in a place like this. Decorated nicely but nothing fancy. Just a good relaxing place to stay. We had big plans to cook some seafood but we decided to eat out every night. However the kitchen has everything you would need and grill outside also. The beds were comfortable and the house was clean. No complaints.
