Located in the secluded Indigo Reef Resort in Marathon, this luxury vacation rental is pure paradise. You will immerse yourself in long leisurely days of boating, lounging by the pool and watching spectacular sunsets from your back porch. Located just 90 miles south of Miami and 45 miles from Key West, the resort overlooks the Gulf of Mexico with full access to the Atlantic Ocean through Vaca Cut which is right around the corner from Indigo Reef. You'll have your own private boat dock just steps from your back porch. The Florida Keys are known for the best fishing, diving and tropical reefs in the world. (Note: Minimum weekly rental)
This spacious three bedroom, two and a half bath Villa will make you feel right at home. Each bedroom has it's own television, with a large flat screen TV in the living room. The Villa has direct sunset views looking out to the Gulf of Mexico, which can be enjoyed from the porch or upper balcony. Just steps from your back porch is your own private boat dock for boats up to 31'. The kitchen is fully stocked with all you'll need to dine in and you can easily grill your daily catch on one of several charcoal grills located throughout the resort grounds. The villa is fully appointed for everything you will need for your stay. Just pack and relax!

"Unit 54 has wonderful views of the bay from the back porches which we absolutely love. The location is great for Marathon and trips to Islamorada and Key West. Unit 54 was clean and decorated tastefully. The sofas are beginning to show a bit of wear, and new pillows are needed in the master. The kitchen and baths were well-stocked with everything we needed. Water pressure was low during our stay. Otherwise, we had no problems and are anxious to rebook for 2025. This is definitely our favorite location for our winter break in the Keys."

The grounds at Indigo Reef are beautifully kept and so is the pool area. The pool is large and had plenty of lounge chairs for everyone. We had a wonderful time and we can’t wait to return to Villa 54!"

The manatee make this a fun time. The water was clear and you could see many different types of fish and other sea life. Perfect location off the main strip, yet close enough to do thing.

"If we were to own a vacation rental property, we would strive to run it like this. The property: Well maintained. Spotlessly clean. Fabulous view. Well stocked (the non-stick cookware was in good condition, a sure sign of a great property!) Marathon Key is a great central location from which to explore the entire Conch Republic. Upon arrival, a parking pass and boat docking pass were awaiting us on the counter. The managers: Great communication with emails giving local knowledge. A timely email with precise info on the property and the resort area in general. We always hesitate to leave a perfect review and are racking our brains to find something, anything to suggest an area of improvement. But we can't. We ended up having to leave early due to a death in the family. In our haste to pack, we left behind our laptop. Gasp! The cleaning crew recovered it and John organized shipping it back to us. (From the bottom of our hearts, thank you to John and his crew!) Summary: Rent this place. You'll love it."

"John wasn't kidding when he said we'd loved it. He is an excellent property manager and anticipated every need. His response time to queries was fast as well. A beautifully maintained association with lovely villas. 54 was spacious, very clean, fully stocked with all the items you may need, and the view was fantastic. We took out 19 month old son and it was quite kid friendly. The unit has a large area of grass out back to play in (supervision is a must though). The flight pattern of the airport was more of a plus than anything as he loves planes. The noise was minimal. For the price, location, and quality of lodgings this has to be the best find in the middle Keys! We are already looking to see when we can get back there. Simply put, you will not find a better place."

A bag of ice was waiting for us in the freezer, along with a bottle of wine on the counter. My wife and I were in want of nothing. The unit was spacious and airy. The porch was a great size, with outstanding sunset views. Due to Indigo Reef's location, it was quite peaceful. To us, Marathon is the best location on the Keys; close to Key West and Islamorada for day trips. Moreover, there is plenty to do on Marathon if so inclined, including dining at one of the many excellent, laid back restaurants. We will be back soon. John & Jenny"

"Each summer our family attempts to find that perfect spot in the Keys for our family of 5. We have stayed many places, Ocean Reef Club, Hawks Cay, Tranquility Bay...each had its drawbacks however this past stay at Indigo Reef, specifically our Villa rented from John Zito satisfied this finicky family which includes, 1 pre-teen boy, 1 teenage daughter; 19yr old son! The unit is meticulous, comfortably furnished and loaded with amenities and provisions. One drawback this location initially presented was the absence of a Tiki Bar as our kids love being able to get their frozen (virgin) drinks. Well, no worries because all of John Zito's units come equipped with a terrific frozen drink maker which satisfied both kids and parents! We really enjoyed our stay and all the space this Villa supplied, I wouldn't change a thing! Thank you for a great time and we will be back next summer!"
