My wife and I always knew we would own a home in the Florida Keyes one day. We come from Virginia. We were self employed. Sold everything and are living our dream. We plan to make many memories at our home in Marathon.
Year Purchased: 2016
Enjoy diving and snorkeling at Sombrero Reef minutes by boat. Amazing Fishing of course. Stroll along Sombrero Beach or Bahia Honda State Park. Spend the day at Pigeon Key learning the history of the area. Children and Adults can visit the nearby Turtle Hospital and Dolphin Research Center. Crane Point Nature Center and Museum within 1 mile. There are several nearby public boat ramps, boat rentals, bike, kayak and paddle board rentals. Sombrero Country Club Golf Course is around the corner. Grocery shopping is less than a mile away. Take a scenic drive to Big Pine to see the Key Deer, Ramrod Key for Boondocks miniature golf. Feed the Tarpon at Robbie's. Some of our favorite Restaurants are Sunset Grill, Keyes Fisheries, and Sparkys.
After travelling to the Florida Keyes for years, we chose Marathon for it's family friendly atmosphere. Our property location is perfect. We love to fish, dive and snorkel. Sombrero Reef is minutes away. We also enjoy lazy days just floating in the beautiful crystal clear waters.
What makes this Villa unique:
We needed space for our large family and this home provides that. The bedroom and bath on the first level is perfect for my Mom. The master bedroom upstairs is separated from the other rooms. There is a lovely bike path along the road for early morning walks. We feel very safe here. Centrally located for all the attractions Marathon has to offer. Exceptions can be made for more than 7 nights but less than 14 nights, but the traveler would first need to inquire about whether it is possible.
Fish from the dock, spend the day with a charter captain or reserve a sunset cruise conveniently located next door.

We had a great time the place has all bells and whistles.
The biggest complaints was after paying a cleaning fee. Additional fees equaling the same amount of the cleaning fee were charged for not leaving the place as I left it. He said we didn’t leave any room in the trash cans down stairs for incoming guest. Trash goes out on Thursday so I’m not sure what we were supposed to do with two days worth of trash. When 10 people are vacationing you can accumulate a lot of trash in two days. We emptied everything from the house but there was no instruction on where to take the trash on the last day. So we were charged. The owner didn’t seem to believe we accumulated that much trash that quickly (not sure why). He assumed we never took it to the road not true. In fairness outside trash removal was in the agreement but I didn’t see it. If I would’ve I would’ve asked where to take it to. I was also told that the place was left filthy even though we had swept and wiped down counters. I was told we didn’t clean the bathrooms or vacuum. I didn’t realize when I paid a fee to have it cleaned I would be scrubbing toilets or vacuuming on vacation. When I questioned it I was told the contract says to leave it exactly like you got it. We have rented every year for almost 15 years this is the first time we’ve ever had an issue. Just understand that when you leave it needs to look exactly like you got it or you will be charged. I was also told that the sidewalk chalk my daughter used would take hours or longer to clean. If I would’ve realized it didn’t get clean I would’ve gladly washed it off but just like he doesn’t believe I accumulated that much trash in two days I don’t believe it’s will require the hours he describes to wash off the chalk. There was also a foul odor coming from the fly bait trap in the pool area but it was that or deal with flys.
Really overall a great stay sad it had to end on this note but items that could have easily been clarified.

The house was spacious inside and out for 2 families with teens/kids. Very centrally located for snorkeling and restaurants and Publix for quick trips to the grocery store. The pool area was a wonderful gathering space for meals and outdoor fun! The outdoor TV was a nice addition. We even saw manatees in the canal. So much fun had by all. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home!

We stayed at Get Hooked in June 2018. Home was decorated great. Ample room for all of us. We had 8 in our party. Everyone totally enjoyed the home and Marathon. We did snorkeling, Turtle Hospital, Kayak in the Mangroves, Feed the Tarpen's at Robbies. Golf carts on Key West. All was a blast. I must say, in June the temp's are hot, but we managed by staying in the beautiful ocean and pool.

We are hooked on "Get Hooked!" The home was clean and our family with adult children and young ones ages 1, 2 and 5 enjoyed the pool, eating outside, kayaking and visiting Sombrero Beach. Communication with the owner was easy and the response was timely. We visited the nearby aquarium and young and old enjoyed the visit. We had a short walk to the nearby Publix, a short drive to get to the beach and many places to eat. There is even a fun ice cream parlor not too far away. All items we needed to eat in were available within the home. I wish I had asked about the little things that were available as many were like pool toys, hair dryers, beach towels, etc. It would have cut down on my packing. When our family returns to Marathon, we will definitely stay at "Get Hooked" again!
