About Ilene Tanen
We live in Connecticut and have been vacationing in the Keys with our two sons for over 20 years. We've created so many great memories. And we know you will, too.
Ilene Tanen purchased this House in 2010
Why Ilene Tanen chose Marathon
To us, the Sombrero Beach area is the nicest neighborhood in Marathon. It's tucked away, quiet with lovely homes. Our home is located on Treasure Road, one block to Sombrero Beach.
What makes this House unique
Sombrero beach is one of the best kept secrets in the Keys. From our house, you can walk, drive, kayak or swim there -- we're that close! The back of the house looks across to mangroves -- it's a very restful, natural environment. The large kitchen and open layout of the living room and dining room makes it very enjoyable to hang around in the house with friends and family.

Great house - great location
The stay at Marathon key was the center piece of our vacation. This is a great house in a quiet, convenient location. Near a Publix store and a Walgreens, as well as walking distance from Sombrero breach, this house was located down a quiet road with good privacy. The pool and patio are very nice.
I would recommend this house for anyone wanting to explore the Keys but have a quiet place to retire to.
Quiet and Spacious
Very spacious and quiet. Beautiful kitchen and bathrooms. Loved it
Sweet Spot on Marathon Key
Our family really enjoyed our stay. The newly renovated house was perfect for the 6 of us and three generations. The pool was steps outside the door with an adorable mosaic on the pool floor. Our daughters loved reading in the hammock next to the canal and we loved lounging by the pool. The kitchen was a great size and had everything we needed. We often took evening walks/bike rides to Sombrero Beach, but took the car when we went for the day.
Perfect house for a family keys vacation
Simply can't beat the location of this home. Short walk/drive to the beach, Publix, and just about anywhere you want to explore in the keys. We went to Bahia Honda State Park and Key West a few times during our stay. My kids LOVED swimming in the pool and playing board games in the living room. The breakfast bar was my favorite spot to drink coffee in the morning. The kitchen had everything you could want in a vacation home. We looked for the land crabs, iguanas, lizards, hermit crabs and anything else we could find during our stay. Just the perfect home for a relaxing trip in the beautiful Florida Keys. Will definitely love to stay here again on a future visit.
Thanks! You captured what it's like to stay at our home to a "T!" Come back again!
First keys vacation.
This was our first trip to the keys and loved every minute of it. The house was clean and updated. The pool was very enjoyable after a long day at the beach and fishing. Ilene was a great host and would recommend this house for a very enjoyable time.
Clean home with a great location!
Great vacation home! Pictures are accurate - it’s clean and spacious. The house is walking distance to Sombrero Beach and a few short miles from a grocery store and restaurants. The pool house has everything you need for an afternoon at the beach or in the backyard pool - floats, cooler, beach chairs, pool floats, fishing rods, and more.
The canal the home is located on was being dredged while we were there. Ilene kept us updated and did what she could to accommodate us during the process. You may want to ask if the dredging is over before booking this summer. There’s heavy machinery and a terrible smell involved!
Sombrero Beach is a beautiful, sandy beach -- arguably one of the nicest in the Keys. It has a kid's playground, beach volleyball courts, an area to launch a kayak, picnic areas with grills, wood gazebos, two bathroom buildings, outdoor showers to get the sand off -- and is a great place to watch the sun go down.
