Property Details

Updated: Apr 30, 2015
2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Lush Tropical Pool half duplex home with view of th e Gulf of Mexico and incredible sunsets. Recently revnovated octagonal shaped home with wide open water views from every window. Newly furnished comfortable interior with all the ammenities you'd expect. Brick pavers surround lush landscaping and palm trees - sit under the large tiki hut by a crystal blue pool and take in the sunset. The pool, tiki area, dock and all the described amenities are for your exclusive use and not shared. Outdoor dining set on the deck and lots of lounging furniture for you to relax and enjoy! This home has a large open floor plan with vaulted ceilings and over 1425 square feet of living space. The master suite has a king sized bed and the guest bedroom has a queen with a pull out sofa in the living room. Full kitchen with stainless appliances and Corian countertops. Dockage can accommodate a 50 foot boat with over 60' of deepwater dockage.

Want to cool off, take a dip in the home's large private pool or take a dip in this crystal clear lagoon free of the noise and congestion you'd encounter on many of the canal homes. Or grap our double ocean kayaks, your fins and a mask and explore the crystal clear Gulf just a few paddles from this home.

We provide kayaks and beach cruiser bikes to guests at no additional charge. These toys will come in handy, as this is not your typical canal home that are rented throughout Marathon. This one has open water, privacy and an un-obstructed view. This property overlooks a large water cove, deepest point is 25 feet. So much marine life to enjoy right from the dock, including tarpon tailing, manatees, rays and porpoises and snapper. Beyond the cove is the Gulf of Mexico, to the east is Vaca Cut ocean access and to the west 7 mile bridge ocean access. Bring your boats and jet skis because there is also plenty of room for them along with your vehicles and trailers.

Just bring your boat, dive gear & tackle! If you don't have a boat, we'll guide you to boat rentals and they can deliver one right to your dock.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I were so pleased with this property at Marathon Key. The home was spacious and uncluttered and the pool and dock area were beautifully landscaped. My son had a great time trying to crack the coconuts that fell off the palm trees surrounding the property. The inside of the home was spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed having our morning coffee or evening drinkss from the tiki hut and relaxing in the hammock chairs. The fishermen among us could cast off the dock directly and caught several fish. This is one property that lived up to expectations generated by the web site. We would certainly stay there again on another visit. (enter on behalf of Bonds Family)

Great View

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay. Everything was clean and the photos are very accurate. The kitchen had plenty of amenities. The view every morning out the window was perfect with a cup of coffee. The 2nd bedrom and bath were a little smaller than we had anticipated but we made it work. It's located in a nice area and check in and check out was very easy.

This Rental Property is a Duplex

This place may look perfect but my vacation was ruined 2 minutes after I arrived at this property. What the pictures and verbiage don’t show and say is that you share the balcony, patio and dock with a connecting house. This may not bother some people and this property may be great for others but I wasn't planning on feeling uncomfortable all week. The pictures of the outside are a little out dated as well. We had a fine time at this property but it wasn't what my family had imagined.

We also paid for the pool to be heated and the pool was not heated and it was very dirty. We placed several calls/texts to the management company and after 5 days, someone showed up and cleaned the pool and turned on the heat. As far as the cost for the heated pool, we did get that money refunded but that doesn't make up for the 5 days of a dirty, cold pool.

Great Vacation Get Away

  • 5 of 5
Great location. The house is on the bay side in a quite neighborhood. This location was perfect for those who dive because it is close to Vaca Cut which made for a short run to offshore dive locations. The secluded boat ramp located one mile South on Aviation Blvd provided for easy lauching and a 5 min boat ride back the the house. A second seldom used ramp is on 33rd street 3.5 miles south on the bay side off US 1. This ramp is a great location for those who like to dive the south portion of the reef. There is also plenty of shopping and restaurants close by.

The accomodations are great. The house was very clean and sits on the embayment for the community. It has plenty of parking for vehicles and trailers. All appliances worked well. The pool made for a refreshing dip after swimming and diving in salt water all day. Mornings were great to site on the dock and watch manatees, turtles and sharks.

Finally, the owners were very friendly and easy to work with. They made the entire experience more enjoyable.

Relaxing vacation in the keys

  • 5 of 5
We can't say enough about how wonderful this property was. We had an amazing vacation. This property is absolutely beautiful and we look forward to returning some day. Our kids loved the pool so much that we only got to go to the beach once. My father did some fishing and my husband and I went out on the kayak a couple of times. The weather was perfect all week which was an added bonus.
Although the pictures are very accurate, they don't do it justice. The property is beautiful and the location is perfect! Everything we needed was right there.
We've rented many houses up and down the East coast and we hit a home run with this one.

lovin it........

  • 5 of 5
we loved the house that Joe and Mary had for us, it was spacious, we had lots of room for the kids to play in the main area, balconies with amazing views of the canal/lagoon. The pool was a lifesaver, especially when we had a bit of inclement weather, we could go and just jump in. We fished off the pier, didn't catch anything but saw a few dolphins and loggerheads.

The best part of Joe was when we arrived (mistakenly) one night early, he really took care of us. He could have just said, 'sorry, you're mistake, you're on your own', but he totally solved our delimma in FL Keys style: no drama, no worries. Joe: Thanks again, you were awesome!

A Week in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
I want to thank you for providing a fantastic home for our vacation. From the moment we arrived everything was great. The home was even better than advertised. I was thrilled by the greeting from your manatee as soon as we arrived. The home was spotless and was so much more then we imagined. You provided everything for a perfect vacation. I have passed your name and the address of your home to several friends because we can't stop talking about how great everything was. If in the future we are going back to the keys, which I would do in a heartbeat, we will be sure to contact you first. Thank you again for making our trip one of the best vacations we have ever had.
