About the owner: My husband and I started coming to Marathon in 2011 and fell in love with the area! We owned and managed a vacation property at a different location for 8 years (vrbo 847647) * See my reviews on that property* We sold that property and bought and completely gutted and renovated this beautiful home. With our growing family, we were ready for a bigger home.
We love to come down to the KEYS with our three young adult sons (21,23, and 26) to fish, relax and reconnect as a family. It is a true paradise!
Why this property? The views are so beautiful and the neighborhood is quiet and relaxing. You can get lost just looking at the water, watching dolphins play, manatees swim by, or just relaxing in the pool. If you can manage to leave the tranquility of this home, take a walk to the beach or a bike ride in the neighborhood. There are nice wide sidewalks to ride your bike. Star gazing at night is another favorite activity.
You will love this peaceful oasis!
