About David House
Yes that is me with Jimmy Buffett in Chicago! We live a very busy life with 3 kids and a lot of working. There is no better place to enjoy our down time than in the Keys. We searched for the right house for nearly 2 years and we always came back to this house.
David House purchased this House in 2011
Why David House chose Marathon
The pool and the dock are fantastic.
What makes this House unique
We love the water. From sitting on the dock, snorkeling on the reefs, fishing, kayaking or just sitting at the pool, we have everything we need here.

So much fun on 30th St!!
This home is great! Beautiful home with brand new, top of the line appliances, fully equipped
kitchen, very nice furniture, TV’s in 4 rooms, nice pool & great view from the dock. It was also in a great location to access the Atlantic and the Gulf for snorkeling and fishing. We caught Mangrove, Yellow Tail, Tuna and Mutton while fishing. Mangrove, Hog Fish and Lobster while snorkeling. We ate VERY good every night! Ocean to table. The only negative I can say, and it’s minor, is there are only two bath towels in each bathroom, no toilet paper or paper towels/napkins for the kitchen. No dish soap or detergent for dish washer, so we had to buy all that. Also, the bedroom upstairs gets very hot if the AC unit up there is my running and it’s hard to sleep at night with it on because it is very loud and I personally have a hard time sleeping with even the slightest noise, so we had to turn it off at night. But, with all that said, we had a great time and enjoyed every minute of our vacation and would absolutely recommend this property to anyone!
Quirky and versatile gem in boot harbor.
After a few initial hiccups at check in, mostly due to miscommunication, and handled promptly by David, our group really enjoyed our stay. The layout is versatile and can accommodate a variety of stays. Location is great in southern marathon. Minutes to seven mile , gulf or Atlantic. Restaurants and stores all around the area. Would definitely recommend and stay again.
The property is lovely and has all the amenities that you need. Kitchen is well stocked and each bathroom has towels for showering, the only issue inside was the upstairs bedroom air conditioning unit, we had to turn it off at night because it was too noisy and prevented sleep, so the temperature was a little uncomfortable upstairs, there were other oscillating fans but again these are noisy. We only had six people but this location can accommodate 10, however, there are no curtains on the patio doors that look onto the dock where the sleeper bed is located so would suggest that some are added for privacy. It was a shame that the outside areas were not completely as depicted in the pictures. The waterfall was not operational, and the table and chairs in the pictures are not the ones there, the table that was there had screws missing and was very wobbly, two of the chairs were broken and the parasol had a massive rip in it, this was a bit of a shame and let the outside area down. The tiki bar area is no longer there either, just a couple of high top chairs and a table but no privacy fencing as in pictures. Unfortunately the beach was closed during our stay due to some kind of construction work so we spent a lot of time around the pool. All in all the house is lovely and if the outside is rectified would be perfect, we enjoyed our stay.
Very easy and fast rental process. Contacted owner and received timely response. VRBO was an excellent choice for this rental
David ot Jamaican house
Our stay was enjoyable but property over budget. Upon arriving ,house was fairly clean but many things left not tended to. Old bait bags and bucket still tied to dock. Hose stretched out across dock. Old pool remnants left outside suck as basket strainer, broken pool nets etc. Use sheets were still in sofa bed. Way to much post Hurricane damage on outside of home, broken tiles around pool, rips in umbrella, fence on back porch broken about to fall over, almost approaching unsafe. Front door would not stay closed unless dead bolt was locked. No curtains or blinds to close for privacy in main living room.
However owners have upgraded to nice appliances and kitchen. Property was properly stocked. All upgrades since hurricane were nice just needs more work and a better cleaning company.
Love the keys
We loved our stay. We had 2 families staying, one family of 4 and the other was a family of 6. The kids loved everything about the house. It was convenient in the way of shopping and fishing. The owner David is very kind. We have stayed in a few rentals around the area and he is the first one to tell me to just relax and vacation. I am always worried about leaving the house as we find it. And also starting the laundry (bedding and towels) before we leave. And when we left I text him and let him know what we had done and he replied with “ thank you but next time do more vacationing instead of cleaning. But I wanted to make sure we made a good impression so that he would want to rent to us again. Thank you for you beautiful home. We will be back next year and hopefully you home will be available.
Thank you so much for your kind words! I am glad you enjoyed yourself.
