Location Info

Marathon is a beautiful city that offers the best of the Florida Keys while having all the nearby conveniences such as: grocery stores, pharmacies, hospital and emergency care, retailers, marinas, airport, movie theater, live entertainment bars/nightlife, parks, public beach and walking bridge, and excellent restaurants (most of which are dock-up ).

Marathon is surrounded by water: the ocean to the south and Gulf to the north. People come from all over the world to enjoy our warm waters colored in various shades of blue and turquoise.

If you don’t have a boat, don’t worry. You can still enjoy the water by renting a boat, hire a fishing charter, or take a dinner cruise right here in Marathon. Or, make your way to the 7 Mile Bridge and walk along the old car bridge.

Some my family’s favorite restaurants in Marathon are: Franks Grill (Italian), Sunset Grill (seafood and sushi ocean side), Stouts (breakfast on our street !), Island Fish (near Holiday Inn bayside), Lazy Days (excellent food on water ocean side), Marathon Fish Company (on water 35th St. bayside), Castaways (15th st ocean side), and Burdines (great fries – 15th st. ocean side), Porkys (BBQ- bayside), and 7Mile (bayside by the bridge). Most of these restaurants are accessible by boat and have plenty of dock space. There are other restaurants that are excellent too, so just explore and you’ll find your favorites.

About the Southern Keys: Our home is a one hour drive from the beautiful and popular town of Key West; the southernmost outpost in the continental USA only 90 miles from Cuba.

If you have a day or evening available, take a ride south to one of our country’s top tourist destinations and enjoy a sunset in Mallory Square. You can see the cruise ships come and go, enjoy the live street entertainers in the square, or shop at the hundreds of retailers along Duval Street. Or, you can party away at Sloppy Joe’s, Hogs Breath Saloon, or Irish Kevins ! One relatively unknown restaurant/bar that my family likes to frequent is No Name Pub located on No Name Key. Just over the Seven Mile Bridge, turn right at the light in Big Pine Key and find your way to this little pub…the food is excellent and it’s worth the search. By the way, you will undoubtedly encounter endangered Key Deer along the path so drive carefully. One of the nicest and largest beaches in the Keys is located on Bahia Honda State Park. It’s an excellent white sand beach that is nicely maintained. It’s located just over the 7 Mile Bridge about a 15 minute ride from the house.

"Fantastic We had an amazing time staying at Jeff and Mary's home. Everything was smooth from the beginning until the end. The home is even better than what we expected. It literally has every thing you could possibly need. We enjoyed sitting outside listening to music around the pool. The kayaks were a lot of fun! I really liked paddling to the end of the inlet and watching the sun go down! The beds were super comfortable and we had plenty of room to mover around. We made some amazing memories and cannot wait to come back! 6/13/2022 at 4:31 PM"

"The property was just what we expected. Easy access to the ocean and quiet neighborhood. We were on a family vacation and needed a boat dock. The property had all the amenities for a great stay. The kids loved the pool and the beds were very comfortable. Manatees swam up to our boat in the canal regularly. 6/14/2022 at 11:49 AM"
