We had the BEST time staying at this beautiful home on Marathon Key. It's obviously been newly renovated and the owner has provided things that I don't usually find in a vacation rental -- nice quality cotton sheets, blankets, towels & a fully-loaded kitchen. It seemed more like a home than a rental! I'm a cook and found everything I needed to cook our fresh-caught fish and serve a crowd of folks. Having 2 separate living spaces in the house was nice so the kids had their own TV and play space. The patio and pool area has a comfortable shaded area and a lovely view of the canal. Since there are no immediate neighbors on either side, we had lots of privacy! We loved that there were cute shops and restaurants within walking distance. One of our favorite adventures was walking to the community beach with a cocktail at sunset and singing with all the residents and guests as the sun went down. It was charming. We also walked to a community fair with live music and lots of local artist booths. We loved our Marathon Key vacation and would definitely rent this house again, it's absolutely beautiful.
