House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 8 Sleeps
"Your Own Private Island" Seabird Key is a ten acre tropical island hideaway located about one-half
mile offshore Marathon in the Florida Keys, "American Caribbean".
When you are a guest of Seabird, you will have the entire island to yourself, including a stilted,
exotic hardwood beach house (the only house on the island) and a runabout to visit the mainland, and
to fish, snorkel, explore the back-country, or to just have a serene sunset cruise.
Your home on the Island, which is fully equipped, sleeps eight, and is furnished with antiques and
fascinating Caribbean accents. In addition, your home has multi-level porches and a 35' widow's walk
which affords 360 degree ocean views and a spectacular panorama of the bird sanctuary.
A palm shaded, sandy beach with hammocks and chaises provides a fantasy setting-right out of Bali
Hai-for totally private sunbathing, exploring jungle trails, and just enjoying the ocean breezes,
sunsets and relaxing tranquility. Within minutes, you will experience the thrill of snorkeling or
scuba diving on some of the most spectacular coral reefs in the world. Offshore and back-country
fishing are the best to be found anywhere!
While you and your group will be the only occupants of "Your Own Private Island", our Manager, who
lives on the mainland, is available 24/7 to assist you as needed. He will greet you upon arrival at
our landbase in Marathon, help you load your gear for the trip out to the Island, give you a brief
boating indoctrination while going out to Seabird (a five minute ride), help you get settled in and
familiar with your home, and then turn the keys to your house and boat over to you and return to the

About the Owner
Guestbook comments from the owner
After 14 months in the Iraqi desert, Seabird Key was the paradise that we needed. What an amazing job you all have done to ensure that we wanted for nothing. We loved the wildlife and the kayaking. Even though the Keys were brushed by hurricane Fay during our visit, it was handled beautifully and everything was perfect. We look forward to visiting next year. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Family spring break to remember
The owners have thought of everything and beyond and maintain this beautiful island paradise with the help of Jeff and Katie.
From swimming, snorkeling, sailing, boating, crab watching, fishing, sunrises, sunsets and the stars at night are amazing!
The outdoor kitchen is incredible and a perfect place to hang out and enjoy a good steak on the bq. or a cheeseburger in paradise as Jimmy Buffet would say.
Just sitting on the front porch and looking out is so relaxing and peaceful.
It feels like home to us and we are blessed to have found such a rare and beautiful tropical paradise!
Thank you for having us and sharing this beautiful island paradise with us!
We look forward to our next visit!

A Unique Experience
The house is beautifully decorated in an island décor and with wooden louvers open on all sides, you feel like you’re in a tree house on a deserted tropical island. Except this deserted island has solar power, an outdoor kitchen / Tiki bar, and a private beach complete with music from your favorite playlist.
If you stay at Seabird Key, be sure to have your coffee in the front porch rocking chairs at sunrise. The morning sun shining through the gumbo limbo tree makes the peeling bark glow a brilliant orange against the dark blue morning sky.
Seabird Key is not just a place to stay; it is a unique experience that should be on everyone’s bucket list!

WONDERFUL UNFORGETTABLE LIFE LONG MEMORIES
We all voted that this year was the best trip we have ever had. The island and house looked so beautiful. Everything had really grown and most of it was blooming. As usual, the place was spotless clean and everything in perfect working condition, thanks to the caretakers Jeff and Katy. It is always a pleasure visiting with them and they are always available for questions or assistance if needed.
We boated, fished, sailed, wake boarded, swam, snorkeled, and just stayed as busy as we wanted. We all read, took a nap or two, and cooked some fabulous meals. We only went into Marathon to eat dinner one evening the whole week. We just thoroughly enjoyed cooking and visiting in the awesome outdoor cooking and eating area at the island. It is definitely a room with a view...fireflies included!!
After dinner one evening we were out on the dock after dark just visiting and we heard a manatee. It was out in the water past the dock. We went and turned on the hose water at the dock and just sprayed it into the sea to make noise. Sure enough he came swimming up. He laid on his back and we fed him water for almost 1/2 hour!! What a wonderful experience.
We are already looking forward to our time at Seabird next year. We wish that everyone could see and experience such a great place. It is truly a unique and perfect island getaway.
