SEVEN NIGHT MINIMUM STAY REQUIRED.
Family fun in the sun!
Our two daughters, their husbands, three young grandchildren, my husband and myself had a fabulous week at this home in Marathon. The location is as good as it gets in the Keys. It was convenient to all of the great things the area provides like offshore fishing, Sombrero Reef, restaurants, Bahia Honda State Park, etc. I especially loved returning home in the afternoons, after hours out in the boat, and spending fun family time in the pool and hot tub. We are already planning our trip back to Marathon and this impressive compound!
A Week in Paradise
Beautiful home with everything you could possibly ever need for a great vacation. We had 4 adults and 6 children in our group and we never felt crowded. The views from the home are absolutely amazing and even better outdoors. There was always plenty to do and we found ourselves not venturing out very often except for a day of fishing, a visit to the Turtle Hospital, and to swim with the dolphins at the Dolphin Research Center. The grocery store and any other shopping is in close proximity to the home. The property is so clean and very well maintained. I would highly recommend this property- you will truly feel like you are in paradise from the time you step foot on the property until the time you leave. We can’t wait to go back!
Tropical Dream Getaway
We had a wonderful vacation in Marathon, Florida the first week of March. Eight of us stayed in Tropical Sunrise. Very comfortable house with room for everyone. Enjoyed the kayaks, pool, and bikes. Kitchen was fully stocked with everything you needed for cooking. Beds were comfortable. The porch was perfect! It is right on the ocean and offers beautiful views of both sunrises and sunsets. It was the perfect spot for a getaway. I would recommend you use this property. We plan to book it again.

A Florida Keys Paradise!
This house was everything it was advertised to be, including an awesome location with a to die for view of the ocean. The property was very clean and it was obvious that someone really cares about keeping it clean and well maintained. We had a group of 10, including a 15 month old (the provisions for the baby were excellent and we made good use of one of the pack and plays, the high chair and the stroller.) The bedrooms are located to the back of the house, so it was easy to put the baby to bed and still be able to visit and watch TV without any problems. The kitchen was beautifully outfitted, and because we like to cook on our vacations, we made good use of it. The only very slight disappointment was the grill – it was very small and difficult to cook a meal on it for such a large group. We made do though, and didn’t suffer any for it. I was able to get hold of the manager if I needed her, but she gave us our privacy and wasn’t around all the time – we appreciate that you gave us that trust! We truly had an awesome time, and may just be back in the future when the Keys come up again for discussion with family.

The house was beautiful and the pool great! We used the kayaks and had a great time. Also we went to the aquarium which is down the road and a great experience. We also drove into key west for the day (about an hour drive. Plenty of places 2 eat and sombrero beach is close by and lovely. Wish we had been able to stay longer but that was the only week available until May!
The ideal getaway for all of us from 2 to 64 years old!

Our Thanksgiving week in Marathon was magical! The Tropical Sunrise dream home well exceeded our expectations! The grounds and amenities were amazing! The home was beautiful! We wanted for nothing. Every year we take our grown children on a trip for Thanksgiving and this spot is within the top 3. There was plenty of room for 7 of us. We enjoyed the kayaks, bikes, pool table, fusball table, pool and hot tub. The sunsets were amazing and my husband loved the early morning fishing. The location of this home was perfect! Our first time to The Keys and we found a gem! We will definitely rent this home again!
We had big plans to travel around and “see the Keys” but the home was so perfect we spent most of our time out at the pool actually relaxing! Communication was never an issue nor really needed, everything was laid out brilliantly. Would highly recommend and will certainly be back next time we go to the Keys. Thank you!
We had a fabulous time with the whole family. Plenty of room for everyone to move around especially in the kitchen. Fun in the pool and everyone enjoyed the pool table.
Tropical Sunrise Dream was all it was advertised to be!!
Every day our family enjoyed having coffee on the huge deck watching the peacefulness of the sun rise over the ocean, fisherman heading out for the day and plenty of wild life tending to their lives. When we weren’t exploring the local restaurants, we were enjoying dinner on the beautiful deck in the evening. The pool was in use every day as well as the pool table and 6 brand new kayaks! Lots of activities to do in the Keys or you can just hang out and relax in the sun. Thanks for the opportunity!
Paradise in the Keys
We had a wonderful time in spite of the tropical storm for the first few days.The views from this home are amazing! We had ten people in our group and we never felt crowded. The deck is beautifully furnished and the inside is very comfortable also. Water pressure could be better in the master shower, but everything else was great! We were running low on gas in the LP tank, and management delivered a replacement. Kayak launch is an amazing amenity. Beds were very comfortable too! Can highly recommend this home.
Amazing Ocean Views & Home!
We have been coming to the keys for over 10 years and this home goes straight to the top of our list! The location and views are amazing! The furnishings were comfortable and the kitchen had anything you would need. You could never be bored, they have kayaks, bicycles, a pool table, foosball table, a pool and hot tub which we used daily. If you enjoy just relaxing and reading a good book the covered deck was the place to be with comfortable furniture and cool breezes. We will definitely be back!
Best Vacation Rental Ever!
This was by far the best vacation house we have ever rented! The oceanfront house is perfectly situated, with ocean on two sides of the property, and a deep water canal on the other. The landscaping around the pool and lagoon is gorgeous. The views from the enormous wrap-around covered deck are breathtaking. From spectacular sunrises in the morning, to moonscapes in the evening, we never wanted to leave the deck. We even saw dolphins just off the shore one morning! The house is spacious, immaculate, beautifully furnished, and well laid-out for our party of 10, including two sets of grandparents and four kids. Our kids never wanted to leave the property, enjoying the bikes, sea kayaks, pool, hot tub, pool table and foosball. Although Marathon is still recovering from last year’s hurricane, this house survived pretty much unscathed. I would rent the house again in a heartbeat. Best vacation ever!
Wonderful property. A real salute to the owners for getting it ready after the hurricane.
New Year's in the Keys
My family had a great time over the week of New Year’s 2018. Made the best of the below normal temps that hit the area. The Tropical Sunrise home was lovely and met my family’s needs well. I don’t think there could be many better views in the Keys. Having the kayaks available to use was great as well. We were saddened though at the amount of destruction that surrounds the home. The devastation from Hurricane Irma in the keys is just mind boggling. While the home overall was excellent, there are some areas that could be improved:
1. Wireless router could be positioned better so that it covers the entire home. We were disconnected all the time when on the deck and patio.
2. Could use with some “normal” size drink ware.
3. The master bathroom could use some additional hooks for towels and bathing suits. 3M command hooks would work great.
4. While there were many knives, none were very sharp.
5. Pool was supposed to be heated but was not. This could be a result of the repairs from the hurricane though.
6. Hot and cold water supply lines are reversed for one of the sinks in the master bath.
Relaxing and accommodating
The house was clean and well kept. The amenities made the stay, convenient and relaxing. A beautiful home with amazing views in all directions! Meals on the balcony had our entire party in awe daily. The communication with the property management team was extremely fast, even during the holidays!
A Great Experience
Although the weather was not conducive to a great Keys trip, we had a fabulous time anyway. The house was beautiful, they were many forms of entertainment for our children, we all loved it and had a great time.
Beautiful home in a great location. We will definitely be back….thank you so much for everything!
It all started when we stepped out of the van upon arrival and stayed with us the entire week, an overwhelming sense of the WOW factor. Awesome views, incredible setting with spectacular landscaping, impeccable lay out of the house with comforts to meet all our family needs, a kitchen to die for, pool, spa, kayaks, bikes, game tables, outdoor seating and eating areas enjoyed by all. We could not have asked for a more ultimate Florida Keys experience. THANK YOU for sharing your piece of paradise.
Best Vacation Ever
This property was everything it claimed to be. The kitchen and linens were well stocked and we found everything in working order. The management team was easy and friendly to work with. Both the owner and management checked in with us shortly after arrival to ensure everything was up to our expectations. The location was easy to find and quiet. We enjoyed the kayaks and paddle boards. I would definitely recommend this property to any family looking for a spacious house for a relaxing vacation.
Best place EVER
I am an appraiser in Naples FL and have seen numerous high end homes in Collier County over my 32 years of appraising. I have to say that this house goes far beyond a GREAT VACATION! I must say that this location is perfection. It is so calming, peaceful, clean, has everything that one needs for a great vacation getaway. It is in line with many Gulf front homes in Naples and, in my opinion, has superior views and vistas. If you are thinking of spending time in the FL Keys, this IS THE PLACE. Does not get any better than this !!! Thank you to the Jones for sharing your home with the Hale family, I hope you will have us again this summer. THE PERFECT PARADISE HOME !!!!!
Our Christmas Vacation
We took our family to Marathon for Christmas (six adults and a 2 1/2 year old). We had a wonderful time. The house was perfect –comfortable living area, well equipped kitchen, great master suite — and we thoroughly enjoyed all the outdoor spaces — enjoyed swimming and sitting by pool and sitting on the deck. We had fun on the kayaks and we took our boat and docked the boat at the boat dock in the canal — perfect for jumping in and going fishing! Landscaping was beautiful. Our granddaughter loved catching fish from the dock and watching the fish in the lagoon, we even saw a lobster. We enjoyed some beautiful sunsets. We had a perfect vacation and truly hated to leave!
2nd Time Here And Was Another Great Stay!
We liked this place so much we came back a 2nd time to stay at the house. It has pretty much everything you need to have a great stay on the water. The views are spectacular and the house is well kept.
It was wonderful in every way!!!!!!
Awesome Keys Vacation
The place and location were perfect!!
start of regular lobster season week
great house, great location, has everything you could want in a water vacation.
The home is awesome with plenty of activities on site and easy access to the Atlantic or Gulf.

We stayed at this incredible rental for a week in June. The place was perfect for our family which included young children. The views are beautiful and the home is wonderful with an updated kitchen and restrooms and beautiful Decor throughout. What a perfect location! We can’t wait to go back.

This vacation rental was amazing, location in Marathon was the best, It is close to grocery stores and restaurants. Pool and hot tub were super clean. Our only complaint would be the noisy air conditioners. If you want a great vacation in the middle keys STAY HERE.
The house was amazing from beginning to end. The kids started every morning fishing on the dock in their pjs followed by hours of swimming in the pool. It was a great mix of relaxation and adventures. We can’t wait to come back!
It is a Dream Home
This is a beautiful home with the best amenities . The home sits at the end of a quiet neighborhood . THe ocean is all around you and you can’t help but just enjoy it. THere is plenty of space for togetherness and also places to be alone, all in one property. And it is spotless, inside and out. The kitchen has everything you need to make a gourmet meal, and so roomy. All the bedrooms are beautifully decorated and comfortable. There are plenty of lines and a washer and dryer. No need to over pack your suitcase. THe pool and garden areas are lovely with again, so much seating. This year a pool table and Foosball table have been added.Enjoy the kayaks that are so easy to use due to the launch. I can’t say enough about this property. I love it! Oh and, Vickie is only a phone call, e-mail or steps away with all the help you may need.
Wonderful. 5’s to everything. The ice maker was quirky.

Two families celebrate the holiday week in the keys….this was the perfect house in a perfect location. We have made some of the best memories just being at the house and enjoying each other’s company.

The description and photos accurately depict the location and house. Great view; lots of pelicans. House was very clean and is well equipped. Had one heating issue, fixed very quickly. Very quiet location. Only problem, really, was the weather – 10 degrees below normal.
Our family vacation in Paradise!!
Following the gps to the end of the road to find this beautiful home. We couldn’t get outta the car quick enough, climb up the stairs to the wrap around deck, battling each other to b the first to see this magnificent view!!! It was breathtaking!! Everything was perfect!!!! From the outside to the inside! Rooms were lovely and fit our family just right!! Not only did we enjoy everything the property had to offer i.e.: kayaks, pool table, heated pool, jacuzzi, we rented a boat for a few days and docked it right up on their dock! We fished off the dock also. My husband, we were celebrating his 50th birthday, was so relaxed and enjoyed the fishing off the rock wall the best. 🙂 brought back memories of his childhood. From sunrises in the morning to sunsets at night we couldn’t ask for a more beautiful place to stay. We will definitely be visiting again and we’ve told all of our friends! You will not be disappointed!! And one last thing, Anne was so helpful in our booking process. She was but at a touch of my finger tips to talk to and I don’t want to leave out Vicki! They were both such great women to deal with!! Thanks for making our family vacation so easy to plan. You will not be disappointed!! 🙂

Beautiful views, great outdoor living space
We were three couples and found the home to be very comfortable and spacious. The outdoor space was the main reason we selected this rental and we weren’t disappointed. There is plenty of room to spread out, dine on the porch, enjoy morning coffee, etc. The kitchen was pretty well appointed with lots of dishes and utensils (except no whisk?!?). We loved having direct water access; we rented paddle boards for the week. The kayak launch is brilliant! We would happily rent this home again.
Excellent Vacation Home In The Keys!
This house is in a great location with awesome views from the living room and deck. It had plenty of space to store our boat along the seawall with great protection. All of the amenities (hot tub, pool, pool table, kayaks, bikes, etc.) are a real plus. The only opportunity I suggest would be better internet service because wifi was flaky.
Beautiful home! Great home for a family reunion. There was something for everyone! The landscaping was incredible. We would love to return next year. It was the vacation of a life time!
We spent our summer vacation in this amazing home and it was pure and utter PARADISE!! The location cannot be beat and the home was just perfect for us. We especially enjoyed the kayaking and the kayak launch was amazing!! Makes it super easy to get on and off of the kayaks without having to step into the water. The owners of this home obviously maintain and improve their home constantly. We wouldn’t have changed a thing except for our length of stay, 2 weeks would have been nice. Can’t wait to visit this home again, it is PARADISE FOUND!!
We had 4 couple come down from the Chicago area after a long cold winter, and a long hockey season, and we’re greeted with the most beautiful views!! The house was set up perfectly with abundant dishes, silverware, towels, etc. We rented a 30 ft boat for 3 days and kept it at house because of its great dock . Fish cleaning table too. Huge hot tub and pool help ease our tensions also. It was just perfect!
Perfect Vacation Home!
This house is perfect and we felt like we were at our own private resort. The house was very clean and had updated appliances,lots of bath and beach towels, great bathrooms, comfortable beds and pillows and so much more. There was nothing we wished for. The pool and hot tub were wonderful. We ate on the beautiful porch overlooking the ocean all week. Great kayaking with a launch! Every time we went out we would say “lets go back to the house”. It is truly a resort to enjoy with your family. The owner has taken great care of this property and has made every effort to supply you with everything you need. The Management Company also did an excellent job arranging our rental. I highly recommend this beautiful house and hope to return again.
Spring Break Stay
Great house with a great view. Plenty of room for the family. The bikes, kayaks, and fishing rods were a huge hit. The kitchen was very well supplied with good pans, pots, utensils, and some spices to cook. The grill was nice, and the porch furniture was very comfortable, making being outside a must. Would definitely rent again.
Tropical Sunrise Dream
Our vacation was perfect. The house and grounds were beyond our expectations. The beds very comfy, kitchen fully equipped and so much to do right on our property! Everyone of us (9) have made memories together for a lifetime. Thank you!
Spring Break 2015
This home was incredible! Four couples rented this home during spring break and found that it met every need we had. The rooms were nicely furnished. The kitchen had updated appliances. The view from the deck was absolutely wonderful. The pool was perfect for hot days and the hot tub was great for relaxing at night. We used the kayaks everyday and fished the canal. Already thinking when we can come back.
Home away from home
We spent our vacation at this lovely home. Every room is comfortable and provides plenty of room. The on line pictures are true to life. There’s so much to do and see in Marathon and all are a quick drive or walk. We will be returning. Also, your property manager is there for you for any questions or needs. Wish we could have stayed longer!
Working with our realtor Vicki was an absolute joy! Then the setting and accommodations of this house were simply fabulous. I would highly recommend this home to those with grown kids and their kids. We brought our two sons, their wives and three granddaughters with us and there was plenty of room for each family.
The house itself was absolutely beautiful. The view is just breathtaking. Our whole entire family came. So there were 8 of us. The sad thing is, 6 of got food poisoning from a restaurant in Key west. It was awful! Took two years to save for our vacation and we sat in the house close to the bathrooms for the majority of it. We rented a boat that we didn’t get to enjoy even. The house had kayaks and a beautiful pool and a Jacuzzi too. My only critique of the place is that the house cleaning service that cleaned before we checked in was not finished when we got there. More than likely because they cleaned everything out of the cupboards and fridge. Only left one roll of toilet paper per bathroom. One garbage bag left per room. No paper towels even. Not even dish soap. Wish they had used more time cleaning. The property management gal was extremely helpful and pleasant to deal with tho. Over all I would think about this place possibly again.

Sunrise, sunset surrounded by water
It was amazing! The house was clean had all the things we needed and more. The bikes were a wonderful surprised and used several times. The kayakes were so fun we used them to go out and watch the sunset a few nights. We cooked most meals in as it was easier with a 3 year old, the kitchen was was well stocked with every cooking essential we needed, even used the waffle iron. Once we got there no one wanted to leave, we watched the sun rise and set most days from the great deck. I even took a nap out there a few times. It’s close to stores and groceries are 2 minutes away. Won’t change anything except I wish I owned it so I never had to leave!!
The Perfect Paradise family get-a way
The pictures do not even begin to capture this beautiful house and setting. It is easy to find, yet very private and secluded. We had plenty of space to ourselves, and plenty of activities to enjoy together; swimming, kayaking, biking, hot tub, fishing, manatee watching. The interior and furnishings are very luxurious. The beds were soft and comfy with luxury sheets. Everything in the house worked perfectly. Plenty of hot water for all the showers. The kitchen is huge, plenty of room to prepare the fresh fish or lobsters you can catch nearby. The view is breathtaking….you can see the sunrise AND the sunset from everywhere. We ate almost every meal on the fabulous deck, often while watching the mama osprey feed her baby perched in a palm tree next to the pool! The retention pond out front is like your own personal aquarium….all kinds of fish (barracuda, parrotfish, moray eel) live together in this unique ecosystem. It was voted by the family as the #1 favorite house we have ever rented. We were sad to go back to the cold…but look forward to next year. <br/><br/>Grocery stores, drugstores and adult beverage stores were only a mile away.
Beautiful house and great location! Can’t say anything bad about the place, it is well maintained and has everything you need.
We had to call the property manager re the pool getting cloudy and the air conditioner stopped working and was leaking through the ceiling. The property manager handled these issues amazingly fast with no disruption to us or our schedule. There was also some mold in the shower and an ant problem in the kitchen which we managed ourselves. The furniture and linens/towels were all high quality and very clean. The double kayak must have had a leak in that when we took it out my husband noted he was sinking! When we got it back we had to empty water from the inner compartment. Despite the above issues, the property is absolutely beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed our vacation!

we had a great time. the house and location were beautiful. Would come back again.
overall very good
Overall our week in marathon was fabulous. The house was mostly very accommodating, although there were a couple things of note. The nonstick pans need to be replaced, as we enjoy cooking but the old pans made it difficult. Sharp knives would be nice too. Also the beautiful tidal pool had unsightly algae covering a large portion of it. It was finally cleaned toward the end of the week. Overall we enjoyed the house very much. Thank you!
Great time at Sunrise Dream
we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. the water views are amazing. would recommend this property for families looking for a great family getaway.
A Week in Paradise
We spent an idyllic week at this property with our daughter, her husband, and their three children (9, 11 and 13). They enjoyed riding the bicycles, the pool and the hot tub. Accommodations were perfect and the kitchen was well equipped for breakfasts and those occasions when we didn’t feel like going out to eat. This was our most expensive rental to date, but well worth every penny!
We enjoyed our stay very much! The view was spectacular! It was like staying at our own resort!
We were very comfortable there. The view was so relaxing and beds terrific. The kitchen very well equiped. We had trouble with the hot tub until the day before we left and the pool man brought some parts. All in all a good week.
