Property Details

Updated: Apr 5, 2015
House, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 2 Sleeps

Ready For A Change Of Pace? When you tell your friends you are staying

on the water, you'll really mean it!

This charming 1BR/1BA floating home is in a private marina in the Coco

Plum Beach area. The first level has a full kitchen (with

refrigerator, range and microwave), the living/dining area and a

residential style bath with tub/shower combination. The bedroom, with

a sundeck, is on the second story and is accessed by ladder style

stairs (you must be nimble). Guests will be able to dock their boat to

the floating dock in front of the boat (22' or less and subject to owner approval).

No washer or dryer in the unit but one available for use on site. Limited parking, only one vehicle. Trailer storage available

nearby, free of charge.

Never been on a houseboat?

They are great and more than likely not something your friends have

ever done. There are some differences though. The boat is a barge

style which means it has a flat bottom. It is very stable and in a

protected location but will naturally shift or slide around slightly.

If the wind picks up it may even rock a little. If you are highly

sensitive to movement in cars or boats this might not be the best

choice for you. Most people get used to it right away.

The boat is not the type that leaves the dock. It is permanently

moored and hooked up to shore side services. You may bring your own

boat or rent a boat in town and tie it to the bow of the houseboat

(the great thing about this is that the boats go up and down together

with the tide!). The floating dock is perfect to launch and access the complimentary Kayaks, 2 single person kayaks! Nearby is a great area of shallow water to explore and lots of opportunity to see native birds in the Mangrove areas.

The Marina is located in a working community. Across the canal is a

working boat repair and in/out storage marina (daytime operation only

and most guests have found it of entertainment interest).

The Houseboat is docked behind an office building that is occupied

during the day but is not open to the public so usually very little activity.

So, if you're ready for something different this might be just the answer.

Activity and Interests

Marathon and the Middle Keys offers shops and services including two grocery stores, Publix and Winn Dixie, 2 drug stores, CVS and Walgreen’s, a KMART and many other shops, bait and tackle stores, gifts shops and a wide selection of restaurants all within a few miles drive.

Like beaches? Sombrero Beach is located at Mile Marker 51 only a few miles drive from anywhere in the Middle Keys as is Coco Plum Beach. Bahia Honda State Park is about a 20 minute drive south.

Other attractions: The Dolphin Research Center is located on Grassy Key and is always a fun spot to stop in for their tours or schedule a swim with the dolphin. The Natural History Museum at Crane Point provides a look at Keys history, sea life, touch tanks for kids and nature walks through the Hammock (also a great gift store).

Key West is a great day trip and about 1.25 hours south.

Boat rental companies are available in the Middle Keys and most of them will let you keep the boat at your dock for the week (some will even deliver and pick up the boat!).
