Anchors Away stay in Marathon Fl.
5/5 stars
When I booked this stay, I had no expectations. When my wife and I arrived, we opened the front door and said "Wow". This is awesome. I was surprised on how big the family room was and the kitchen. Great view from the kitchen table. The master bedroom was huge! The bathrooms were so nice! We said, this is an unexpected treat! We saw a manatee in the back yard canal the first day. They thought of almost everything for the guest who stay here. Everything is clean! Well done. Pros: -Bed and pillows are amazing -Dishes are great quality and coffee cups are a 10 -Pool was an unexpected plus we used it almost every day and hot tub -Couches comfy- Cute Decor- out door shower- outdoor fridge- BBQ- Wrap around Deck- Laundry- Big TV's Cons: -Noisy planes from airport- Neighborhood rooster wakes you up at 6am every day. Thats it. We did pretty well I'd say. I plan to come back. Scott made things easy for me too. Thanks to him.

Awesome family trip
5/5 stars
Anchors Away is perfect for small families. It’s centrally located to everything in Marathon. The pool is perfect for cooling off. We loved the canal and the easy access to the Gulf. Late evening manatee visits were the highlight of the trip! Our boat was a perfect fit at the docking area.
- Sandra

Sandra thank you for the five star rating! We are glad to hear you had an awesome family vacation at Anchor's Away in Marathon. The manatees are always a nice surprise when they visit. We look forward to hosting you and your family again soon.

6 week stay at Anchors Away
4/5 stars
Conveniently located to the parks state and local. Happy hours are numerous and great. The home is comfortable, beds are good and kitchen is well stocked for cooking. Wrap around porch is perfect when windy, gives you options for sitting. Noise level is high with the proximity to Rt 1 and the airport. The pool and hot tub are a bonus even though small. The only thing missing was lounge chairs for the patio.

Great house
5/5 stars
This was a great rental house! It had everything we needed for our week long stay. We were able to keep our 22ft boat in the water on the sea wall. Something to keep in mind, if you do have a 18ft or bigger boat trailer parking would be a problem due to where the pool is. During our stay the pool was not there when we arrived but a new pool was delivered the next day and we opted to not have the pool installed till after we left because we would not be able to park our boat trailer and truck if it was there. They were very accommodating with this. Highly recommended this company and this rental house!
- Chelsea

Thank you for the review Chelsea! We are happy everything worked out with the boat and trailer so that you all where able to have a great vacation in Marathon. We hope to host you all again soon.
