vacation rental description

The Roseate House, A Key West Style  Beauty on Grassy Key!  
Your Private Tropical Retreat in the Keys!  

The exquisite pool and waterside areas are just part of the new renovations to this outstanding property. Tucked into the palms and fragrant array of trees and plants, this Key West dollhouse is the perfect get-a-way for a Keys retreat. A new kitchen from the "ground up" is beautifully appointed and has all the appliances and equipment a chef could want.  A custom glass sculptured wall above the sink illuminates and is a perfect backdrop for the kitchen and living areas.  
The home is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath residence with fabulous open water views of the Gulf of Mexico. The living area is rimmed with French Doors to bring the views inside. Step out to the expansive porch for outdoor dining, relaxation and more views. The soft yellow exterior compliments the jewel tone aqua in the living area and throughout the rest of the house. An eclectic mix of furnishings and decoration inside gives this home a unique and distinctive flavor with careful attention to detail and amenities! The living and dining areas wrap around the kitchen so everyone gets to share in the conversation and beautiful views through the "window walls" of French doors.  
The master bedroom has its own bath and access to a front porch shared with the second bedroom. The bath is a masterpiece of tumbled marble tile and custom sculptured glass and the bedroom has a king bed. A hall bath, beautifully appointed, serves the second bedroom, with a queen bed and the upstairs loft bedroom which has 2 twin beds.  
The first level of the home may be where you will spend your entire visit (or be tempted to!). A custom pool and spa has just been completed. The "outdoor living area" begins at the driveway with undercover living area tiled in natural stone and vaulted bamboo ceilings. A dining table/game table, foosball table and sitting area around the fire pit are just the beginning. A 50" flat screen TV can be viewed from most areas of the living space, great for evening movies or sports events. The custom pool entry is located under the home with a "beach style" entry and flows out between the columns to open into a spacious swimming area, a shallow lounging area (with Frontgate lounges on the water platform) or the  custom spa. Sun or shade can be found while still in the water, great for young  children or Mothers with babies or for the non-sun lover to still enjoy the water and activities. The stone pool deck extends out to the waterside with steps leading down the beach area and dock. Tiki torches rim the deck for night time enjoyment. Comfortable Frontgate lounges poolside are comfortable enough that you may take a nap without intending to! The pier dock offers boat dockage and a great spot to relax and enjoy the views and sunsets also.  
Wonderful snorkeling off the dock and the nearby waters! You may even catch a fish for dinner! 2 complimentary kayaks are available for guest use and the shoreline is a great spot to explore the wildlife above and below the water! The home has broadband  wireless (Comcast) internet and Comcast premium cable package.  
Provisioning service offered for this home. A great option if you are arriving after hours or after a long day of travel and don't want to have to shop right away for the next days groceries and supplies. Please call for more information, this is a fee service.  
Please note ... this is designated a non-smoking home and property. Garage is not available for guest use.

traveler reviews for this marathon house rental

Heaven on Earth in Marathon at the Roseate House

Review submitted: October 13, 2010   Date of arrival: August 21, 2010

This property was more than I had imagined. Couldn't ask for anything else in a vacation home. The view is spectacular! The pool was heavenly; Larger than expected (I've been to places where they have limited space and don't have a full size pool. That wasn't the case here) so bring a raft or two; The pool has a heater, but in August we definitely didn't need it. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the entire home was beautifully decorated. The kitchen was stocked with just about anything you needed. I think we ended up buying ziplock bags and aluminum foil for left overs, but that's it besides our food! Internet WiFi worked great and they have cable TV. We also used the kayaks and they were a blast. The weather was typical Florida weather; hot with spirts of rain in the afternoon, but the rain didn't last long and the breeze off the Gulf was refreshing. You can also snorkle off the dock when the current is calm. (We brought our own snorkles, masks and fins.)
Cons are: The main house is on the second floor. If you have small children or someone with problems getting up and down stairs, this could be a draw back. Mosquitos in the summer, at dusk, in the Keys are horrible. They do spray often, however, still bring your bug spray, but don't let them keep you away!!
All in all our vacation was wonderful. We definitely plan on going back again next year!!!

Recommended for: families with teenagers, girls getaway, pet-friendly, romantic getaway
