Vacations in the Florida Keys start with and depend upon the perfect place to stay while you are in these special islands: the Caribbean of the United States. The perfect place for a spectacular and special vacation experience is in a luxury vacation home, styled, furnished and curated for discriminating vacationers with high expectations.
Staying in a luxury vacation rental home is an elevated experience from a hotel or resort stay. Privacy and affordability are at the top of the list of advantages. But even more important is the feel of home, your home in the islands for at least one entire week of bliss.
A week’s vacation is perfect for most travelers because it allows enough time to relax, unwind and to explore the islands. A week is also work friendly and family friendly. The City of Marathon, Florida allows weekly vacation rentals while most of the rest of the Keys are restricted to monthly rentals. This is just one of the reasons Marathon is the preferred key for vacations in the Keys. The weekly vacation period for our rentals starts at 4:00 p.m. on a Saturday and ends the following Saturday at 9:00 a.m.
Snorkel the Sombrero Reef National Marine Sanctuary, kayak the mangrove trails, paddle board next to the shore, walk the natural beach in Coco Plum, soak up the sun at Sombrero Beach, and dive the reef. Experience the Turtle Hospital, the Dolphin Research Center and the Aquarium: all truly special excursions to interact with the Keys sea life right here on the Island of Marathon. And of course, Marathon is famous for its fishing opportunities and adventures just off of its shores in all directions. Yellowtail Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, Tuna, Grouper, Hogfish and Lionfish are some of the local fish that are the subject of the local fish tales and make delicious meals. Lobster, Stone Crabs and Key West Pink Shrimp round out the abundance of fresh seafood offered in the Keys.
