Blue skies, white beaches, and a whole lot of sunshine make Marathon Key vacation rentals popular with tourists year after year. When you’ve got attractions like the Dolphin Research Center, the Turtle Hospital, and Sombrero Beach only minutes away, your vacation home has the potential to bring in great returns and give your guests a sense of local island life.
What do you need to begin renting your Marathon Key vacation home? First, your home must pass a fire safety inspection. Then, you'll need a Vacation Rental Permit from the City of Marathon, the price of which will depend on the number of bedrooms in your home. To collect the 12.5 percent tourism-related taxes on your vacation rental, you will also have to get both state and county business licenses. Keep in mind that vacation rentals in Marathon Key are subject to a 7-day minimum stay, with some condo and resort complexes allowing for shorter visits.
As a local, full-service vacation rental management company in Marathon Key, we know what vacation homeowners need. It's why we hire housekeepers, maintenance, and operations teams who live in the area.

Owning a second home shouldn’t be your second job. Vacasa takes care of the details so you can enjoy your home.
In 2009, after assuming responsibility for his wife's family vacation home, our founder Eric Breon struggled to find a property manager capable of providing quality care and a satisfying financial return. This is how Vacasa began—with a vision to deliver a seamless experience for vacation home owners, through innovative technology and local staff, wherever guests want to travel.
In the last decade, thousands of homeowners have joined the Vacasa family, and we now manage more than 26,000 vacation properties around the world. We’d love to help you discover the Vacasa difference: earn more, worry less, and rent with ease.
