About the Property
We would love for you to come visit our newly renovated ground level Florida Keys home! We decided to call our home "TIGHT LINES", because my wife loves to fish.
Our conch home consists of 3 bedrooms with king size beds with ensuite bathrooms. A half bath for guests. We have a 60 foot dock with whips. Filet table, bait freezer and outdoor grill. We also have a 9x16 heated pool to relax in. We also offer Kayaks and paddle boards (with life jackets) for your use.
Our home is the 5th house down the canal from the ocean. From our canal it is a straight shot to the ocean where you can enjoy kayaking and paddle boarding on the flats or go out further to some small patch reefs and enjoy the amazing sea life or some spearfishing. Just out of our canal you can go either to left and enjoy a 10-minute boat ride to Vaca Cut where you can go to the Bay. To the right out of the canal will take you on a 20-minute boat ride to the 7-mile bridge.
Registration Number: VACA-21-142

About the owner: This was our home for 25 years before Hurricane Irma decided it needed a makeover. We have had so many memorable moments with this house. Our children, Kaite and Seth, were born here and were able to enjoy everything that the Florida Keys has to offer while growing up. We hope that you and your family can add some memorable moments too.
Why this property? Currently this home is the 5th house down the canal from the ocean. From our canal it is a straight shot to the ocean where you can enjoy kayaking and paddle boarding on the flats or go out further to some small patch reefs and enjoy the amazing sea life or some spearfishing. Just out of our canal you can go either to left and enjoy a 10-minute boat ride to Vaca Cut where you can go to the Bay. To the right out of the canal will take you on a 20-minute boat ride to the 7-mile bridge.

Guestbook comments from the owner:
This home is the perfect combination of chill and convenience. Perfectly located, 5 houses off of Hwy US1 and 5 houses to the ocean, on a canal, leading to the ocean. The recent home renovation was done beautifully and is premium quality throughout. It is also very well stocked from the kitchen to the back deck, including beach towels, plenty of outdoor seating with an umbrella for shade, a pool and a grill. There are also multiple kayaks and stand up paddleboards included in the rental. There is a beautiful view out the front and back of the home as well as wonderful nighttime star gazing with very little light pollution. Our group of 6 (3 couples) all truly enjoyed our stay and felt like Guests, not renters. The Landrys are a joy to get to know and we will not hesitate to return and have already recommended this home to several friends.

This is an amazing property. The layout gives everyone privacy yet the common areas are welcoming and beautiful. We caught fish on the canal, enjoyed the multiple big screen TV's, cooked on the grill, and played the family games they had available for our use. The owners have put a lot of thought into making this property better than most. Everything you need is at your finger tips. My family and I hope to be back some day. It's that good.

This house was amazing. We loved sitting outside enjoying the water view in the super comfy patio furniture. We rented a boat which we were able to keep docked in the canal. There is a fish cleaning station as well as a bait freezer. The house was incredibly clean and completely updated. The owners were extremely accommodating. I can't wait to go back next year.

Perfect lobstering and fishing getaway for our family.
This was our first stay at this location but definitely now our favorite rental location on Marathon. The boating access was easy and very convenient to the reefs. The house was set up great with a bathroom in all three bedrooms and an additional half bath. The house had just been remodeled and was very well done. The small pool was perfect for our needs and the new sun shade worked great. It came with a grill and outside bait freezer which is always a must in our family. And the hosts were great and very helpful. We will definitely be returning next year.

Tight Lines was the perfect home that our family has ever rented! The location was ideal and just a few miles from everything we needed in town. By boat, we were a short ride away from the most breathtaking reefs, sandbars and shallows that we've ever seen. The convenience to be able to SUP board down the canal and relax in all the surroundings of the ocean was amazing. Lynn and Lora were the ultimate hosts, and thought of everything you could possibly need during your stay. The kitchen was user friendly, the beds were comfortable, and the bathrooms were spacious! They did a beautiful job on the renovation of their home and everything was clean, neat, easily accessible, comfortable and we all had our own space inside and outside. The outside space was amazing! Our group spent a lot of time in the pool and we enjoyed sitting at the outside table under the sunshade. We especially enjoyed getting to know Lynn, Lora and their family while visiting with them outside. They had great tips on different reefs and sandbars to check out by boat in the area. It was also a pleasure to meet Grandma and personally thank her for the best key lime pie any of us had ever had! From the location, renovation, comfort, hospitality, and amenities to the attention to details, Tight Lines is just perfect! We feel blessed to have discovered this gem and for the opportunity to have stayed here and gotten to know Lynn, Lora and their beautiful family. This was our first trip to Marathon and the Keys, but it won't be our last. We are hooked and ready to plan our next adventure back!

Couldn't ask for more!
We had such an amazing time staying at this home. I don't have one negative thing to say about our experience. The Landry's have really went above and beyond to insure that anyone who rents has all the accommodations that they need. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone considering coming to Marathon. I was very comfortable with leaving my 22" bay boat docked at the house for the duration of our trip. I can't say enough about how friendly the Landry's and even the neighbors were. We are already trying to plan our next trip back!

This home is beautiful and the owners are terrific! This home is unlike any rental you've stayed at before and the owners have set the bar so high that I seriously doubt any other rental property will ever top the experience! The home has beautiful high quality finishes, superb workmanship, great attention to detail and a wonderful location! All three bedrooms offer plenty of space, comfortable beds, and privacy while the common areas are perfect for when you're ready to gather together or eat. Do take advantage of the list of owner recommendations! You will not be disappointed! You will be pleasantly surprised at just how good a job these owners have done at thinking ahead and preparing this home for your every need and desire and helping to create one great vacation! Reserve before it's too late and take good care of it. We are already looking forward to our next stay!!

Everything I expected and more!
Our family enjoyed our stay at "Tight Lines. "This home was centrally located in Marathon! What you see in the pictures is what you get. The house was fully stocked like I was at home. The home and property was very clean. Make sure you check the freezer for the forzen "KEY LIME PIE." It was a nice touch. Would highly recommend this home to any family.
