From the Living/Dining room you can access the balcony which overlooks the Atlantic,, Gulf, Seven Mile Bridge, and your own private free form pool with a deep end. The owners particularly enjoy sitting on the balcony drinking their morning coffee and watching the boats go out for a day of fun on the water, or playing a card game in the afternoon before dinner.
Adjacent to the pool is a large screen porch with a bait freezer, table with six chairs, and two lounge chairs. Adjacent to the screen porch is a grilling area with two grills. One for those who love to use charcoal, and one for those who prefer to use gas. Adjacent to the grill area is a fenced in pet run for those pets that are allowed with certain restrictions.
The dock is available for use, and has water, electric, and a fish cleaning table. You can catch dinner right from the dock, or you may enjoy just watching the tarpon, and large Sea Rays as they swim by. If you dock your boat there beware that you are docking on open water, which can get rough at times. We highly recommend you use large bumpers, and extra dock lines to properly secure your boat for these conditions.
You can catch Snapper, Snook, and Tarpon right off the dock. You have easy access to the Atlantic and Gulf which is a big plus for boaters. We also are close to the Sombero Lighthouse which is a great reef for snorkeling.
Imagine fishing right outside your backyard off the seven mile bridge in Money Channel, as well as, diving for lobsters under the bridge. This is truly a fisherman%60s paradise.

Turn left at Kmart on Sombrero Beach Road and you'll find the Finest beach in the Middle Florida Keys. The Keys are not known for their beaches but Sombrero is a beautiful beach and it is right here in Marathon!
Sombrero Beach is a beautiful park and beach. In 2001 the City redeveloped Sombrero Beach to include total handicap accessibility. A lovely sandy beach on the Atlantic Ocean frames a shady park with picnic pavilions, volleyball courts, restrooms and showers.
Sombrero Beach is a turtle nesting beach. From April through October it is not unusual to have Loggerhead Turtles (primarily) coming on to the beach at night to lay their eggs. During this period we do not have tables or benches on the beach so we do not interfere with turtle nesting activities. The City is responsible for surveying the beaches during turtle nesting season. If you are interested in helping with this lovely obligation please get in touch with us. F.D.E.P. holds classes in February or March every year to be a state certified surveyor. The City then schedules all of the surveyors for their day to walk the beach. Walking the beach first thing in the morning looking for turtle nests is an awesome experience.
The hours are from 7:00 a.m. until dusk. To get there turn South on Sombrero Beach Road and drive to the end of the road. You are there!
The Historic 7 Mile BridgeMarathon
A tiny five acre island sitauted along our Treasure called the Seven Mile Bridge was once the home to the workers who built Henry Flagler's Railroad which connected the Keys to northern commerce. Enjoy the relatively long walk along the Seven Mile Bridge to get out to the Island and take the Trolley ride back. Some of you may remember The famed Seven Mile Bridge and Pigeon Key in the movie "True Lies" featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Museum and Nature CenterMarathon
Crane Point Hammock Museum and Nature Center
The most important historical and archaeological site in the Keys. Evidence of Prehistoric Bahamian and Colombian tribes are found here.

Don't miss The Adderley home. Early immigrant George Adderley and his Family lived a simple life among tropical trees such as the lignumvitae whose hard wood was once used to make bowling balls. The family survived by making charcoal and gathering and selling sponges.
