“Dishonest owner”

Reviewed 8 Jul 2016

I didnt actually stay in the house the property looks wonderful.What I wanna comment on is the owner I inquired about some dates in the end of July 2016 she responded back with not available no big deal.I came back with another date her response"At this time, I'm booking for 2018" come on really I believe for some reason she was just being prejudice against me for some reason.If its the middle of 2016 and your booking for 2018 why are you even on this site.That is information that should be disclosed maybe you should use the calendar option thats there so people dont waste your time and their time.I understand the cavaction rentals get booked out in advance but I was asking for 4 days.

Owner's reply: Mr. Dawson If you looked at my reviews they do not sound like I have been dishonest. I do not have the dates you requested and I was honest. I think you were having a bad day and decided to write this. Since I have nothing to hide I will post what you wrote along with my answer. I am sorry I was not able to help you for your vacation but do not write such idiotic things like the ones you wrote! Have a blessed day!!

“Convenient location!”

Reviewed 30 Jul 2015

Close to everything! We did it all from this beach house...Not to mention it was clean and very well stocked. Lucy was amazing from beginning the process all the way to the last day.

Owner's reply: Shana was great to work with. Thank you and I hope you think of us in the future!

“Marcia and Steve”

Reviewed 8 May 2015

The house was beautiful. Everything you could want is readily available. Location is perfect. Very comfortable. Only downside is that I feel one bedroom could use a queen size bed. Lucy was very helpful in planning our trip. Would not hesitate to return

Owner's reply: Marcia was also great to work with. So happy you enjoyed your stay. I probably need one king size in there because those two beds are queen. Again thank you and hope you remember us for your future vacations!

“Specil retreat”

Reviewed 9 Feb 2015

What a wonderful winter experience! This home is exactly as described. Every amenity you can think of is provided, plus some. The home is bright and airy with a comfortable deck for eating out or just reading a book. Gas grill, fishing poles and beach chairs are provided. The pool is privately set in the back with adequate depth for water aerobics. The home is 5 miles from Sombrero beach. If you want a home away from home, this is the place!. The owners are lovely, approachable and available to fill whatever need might arise. So happy to have found this paradise; already booked for 2016.

Owner's reply: These ladies were great! I am so glad we got to meet you and so so happy you are coming back. Again thank you and see you soon!!

“Like home”

Reviewed 31 Aug 2014

Me my brother and father stayed at this property for a week and loved it the place was clean very up to date on the inside it was like being at home but on vacation. We did not lack any thing that we needed in the kitchen from cookware to cuzzies for our drinks it was really a nice place to get away to. Couldn't have asked for a better experience if your looking for a family friendly place to getaway this is the spot. Thanks again to the owners we will definitely stay here again when we visit the marathon area again.

Owner's reply: The Perros were great! We would be happy to have them back again!!

“A place to visit sited by travel professional”

Reviewed 18 Jul 2014

The property looks exactly like the pictures, it was very clean, well stocked and very tastefully decorated. The location is very central. Definately an option instead of a hotel, lovely pool lots of space and in a safe secure area. The owners Lucy and Leo are great to work with.

Owner's reply: Darlene was great and I hope they come back soon. Thank you and stay in touch!

“A "Magical" vacation”

Reviewed 14 Apr 2014

We have just spent two and a half months at Marathon Magic and could not have found a better place to spend the coldest, snowiest winter in decades in Canada! The home had everything we could possibly want, and more. The owners were extremely helpful and offered advice on where to visit and restaurants not to miss. The saltwater pool was heaven on the hot afternoons and most mornings we visited Sombrero beach before anyone else got there. We loved it so much that we have already booked a return visit.

Owner's reply: The Lloyd's were great and we are delighted they are coming back!

“home away from home”

Reviewed 28 Feb 2014

This was the second time we rented Marathon Magic from Lucy and Leonel and loved it just as much as 2 years ago. The Keys are a fantastic place to vacation in and Marathon is just perfectly situated to accomodate all the fun things there are to do. The house was clean and extremely well stocked and when there were a few small issues, Lucy was very quick and professional in addressing them successfully. My 85 year old mom visited from Holland and one night she fainted on the balcony. We were very impressed with the immediate response from the 911 call responders and totally surprised when we found out there were no charges. She recovered quickly and had a wonderful holiday. We will carry precious memories from this holiday for the rest of our lives, thank you Landins for letting us rent your home!!!

Owner's reply: Thank you Emilie and Warner it was a pleasure to have you come back. I am happy you had a great vacation and great memories! Stay warm and keep in touch and may God bless you!

We have been renting in the Keys for 10 years and this home was THEE best! It was spotless! I could not have asked for a better house. The street was quiet (third house from the ocean) and there were very few neighbors. A couple directly across the street were friendly.The kitchen was the best equipped I have ever seen. There were plenty of towels and sheets.The pool was sparkling. We did use it a few days (was cool while we were there). I have nothing but good things to say about this house.Thanks to Lucy and Leonel for sharing your home.

Owner's reply: The Abbonizio family were great. I am glad we got the chance to meet them and they are welcomed at Marathon Majic always.
