We love the Florida Keys, and found our peace of mind 30 years ago at the Reef Resort in Marathon.
This is a very small vacation resort that we holiday annually in March. Most of the detached units have been owned by families from the North (especially Michigan and Ohio) for thirty years.
Some families who are Boomers and retirees may own 10-12 weeks during the winter months.
Consider yourself fortunate IF a rare rental appears.
Many owners know and value the friendships of annual visitors.
We have holidayed in all three of the Hyatts in Key West, and prefer Marathon (hometown, USA.)
While the Reef is not a Hyatt or a Marriott, there is not the nonsense of Key West, and the traffic of Palm Beach.
The Reef is a very special small resort with its own marina, pool, tennis, and several other amenities.
The Reef is Paradise, and Paradise is not cheap!
The Reef's value holds, and the annual maintenance fees are reasonable.
We love Marathon; we tolerate Key West, and of we love our Marriott Holidays at Palm Beach.
Want a perfect March spring break? Hop a plane, rent a car, set up for a week of Paradise. It is always difficult to convince my wife to leave following one week.
Lots of neat restaurants. Lots of laid back time. Diving is great. Mother Nature abounds, and Marathon is civilization.
The holiday is appropriate for the tariff.
