Wonderful Holiday in Marathon

This home is one of the few places that I have rented that turned out to be even better than the description on the website. We traveled a long way from South Africa to Florida for a holiday with family including twin 8 year old granddaughters and so spent some time researching and deciding on places to stay. I am so glad we made this choice.

The house is large and very well appointed, 3 large and beautifully appointed bedrooms all en-suite, suburb kitchen, very large lounge and dining area. The entertainment area outside is fantastic and we spent a lot of time there swimming and relaxing by the pool. The cottage is also well equipped and my wife and I used this accommodation to sleep while the family used the main house and it worked perfectly.The air conditioning, WiFi, music system and so many television sets that everyone could have there own if they wished, all worked perfectly, although there was not much time to enjoy them with so much else to do in the Keys.

We hired a boat for 3 days from “All Aboard Boat Hire” and parked it at our dock, and had great fun with it going fishing on the reef , snorkeling at the Sombrero Lighthouse and sightseeing along the canals. We walked to Sombrero beach so the kids could swim in the sea, only 500 yards away and also visited the Turtle Hospital and Dolphin Research center. Couldn’t leave the keys without having lunch at Key West only 50 miles away

Bill Blum the owner was extremely helpful and generous with his advice and suggestions. He always responded very quickly to any question I had and sent detailed e-mails to give me as much information as I wanted

I would recommend this accommodation to anyone thinking of visiting the Keys and would certainly use it again myself if I get the opportunity to visit Florida again.
