My husband and I just spent seven amazing days in Marathon, Florida for our honeymoon. We stayed at Tropical Cottages (Cottage #8) for the entire week, and we know we wouldn’t have had such a wonderful experience if we stayed anywhere else. These Caribbean style cottages provided the perfect getaway from the traditional, busy lifestyle we are used to at home. They are located in the middle of the Keys, right off the main highway, making travel easy; however, you get a feeling of seclusion at Tropical Cottages. While at the cottages, you can lounge in a hammock, fish from the boat dock, or have a few refreshments at the Tiki Bar. The staff at Tropical Cottages are some of the nicest, most knowledgeable we’ve ever met. They made us feel more like part of a family than customers at their cottages. Rich is full of knowledge about all sorts of wildlife, fossils, and fishing, and he was willing to share his knowledge and advice with us from the very first moment we stepped foot on the Tropical Cottages property. Sherry is very friendly, caring, and is willing to help everyone in any way possible. She’s also a great bartender when she’s scheduled to work at the Tiki Hut. Julio and Maria worked very hard to keep our cottage clean and beautiful, and everyone gave us great advice about the best local places to eat, swim, snorkel, and visit. They always steered us in the right direction, ensuring that we would have a great time on our honeymoon. A BIG THANK YOU to everyone at Tropical Cottages and we can’t wait to stay here again next time!
I booked this palce online after reading some reviews and looking at their website.
It is such a major disappointment . It is a few feet from the noisy US1 highway , backs on to a drive-in bank car park . The Bank's Dumpster is just feet from the door of the ' superior cottage ' . It is a collection of wooden shacks laid out on dusty gravel.
The worst thing of all was that when I arrived and said I was disppointed and did not wish to stay they still insisted on charging my card .
So my advice is stay elsewhere , I got a fantastic hotel with pool , beach and full facilites just down the road .
If you do feel that the other reviews are genuine ( which I really cannot believe ) then go there and look around before giving your card details . I am sure they will allways have vacancies.
We spent two nights in a recently renovated cottage at Tropical Cottages. The sun coming into the high windows was a delight in the morning. The floors were recently tiled and very clean. There was a grocery store near by where we bought our breakfasts...we ate them in our fenced porch. The hosts were delightful and very attentive. The gulf was windy, so we did not get to use the kayaks or canoe. Sombrero beach was relaxing and we saw a pod of dolphins! We would recommend Tropical Cottages to anyone traveling the Keys.
A perfect little paradise to call home for a wisit to the Keys.
The location in Marathon is convenient to everything and the rates a remarkable value. Sombrero Beach, a beautiful public Ocean beach five minutes away was a real surprise. We loved the tropical decor- from the sea blue towels to the Palm Tree light switches. The room was recently renovated and included a great tile bath and new kitchenette with microwave and fridge. We liked the private screened wood patio and the gurgling fountain.
After a one-night stay, we moved on to a big Islamorada resort but soon missed having our own complete cozy little world in Marathon. We decided to return to Tropical Cottages for our last two days in the Keys.
Just got back from a trip to the Keys!! Reserved the Gardenia cottage (it's one of the renovated cottages). It was beautiful, clean, and an exceptional value. Great bed, clean kitchen and fabulous shower!! Host (Jeff) was awesome and helped with any plans we needed to make. Will go back to again for sure.
