vacation rental description

"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

traveler reviews for this marathon house rental

Special Family Vacation

Review submitted: January 11, 2014   Date of arrival: November 30, 2013

There are no true words to describe Seabird Key. It was absolutely breath taking the moment we arrived until the unfortunate day when we had to leave. Every day was a day in paradise, between the private beach, snorkeling, kayaking around the island, and just taking a private walk around the island and seeing the luscious plants. Our family loved it and it will always be a very special memory. Hopefully we can save up and experience Seabird again! Thank you Deborah and Jeff so much for letting us experience such a very special place.

A Unique Experience

Review submitted: November 11, 2013   Date of arrival: May 18, 2013

My wife and I were planning a special trip for our wedding anniversary and we were looking for something different from the usual tourist attractions when we discovered Seabird Key. I’m glad we did because it was one of our most unique vacation experiences. Jim and Deborah have created a private paradise that is absolutely gorgeous. Jim’s passion for gardening shows in his selection of orchids, stag horn ferns, a variety of palms, banana trees, lime trees and bromeliads planted throughout the landscape. The walk along the path from the dock to the house feels like a stroll though a South Pacific botanical garden.

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!

Keith and Sandy G.

Owners response: Thank you Keith & Sandy! You were terrific guests and we hope to see you again one of these days. Like you, we feel that Seabird Key is a "must" bucket list item for anyone who has ever longed to have their own private island. With Seabird, you can enjoy Island living at it's best and get the full experience without the investment. We hope you enjoyed your anniversary and will think of us as you toast the next one!

The Perfect Getaway

Review submitted: October 20, 2013   Date of arrival: July 27, 2013

Wow. That's about all my family could say when we first arrived at the island. The four of us (mom, dad, my brother, and me) were truly amazed... And that was just the beginning! I had just graduated from high school in June, so my family decided that traveling to Seabird Key would be the perfect way to celebrate. Throughout the trip, we each found different things on the island that we loved. My brother's favorite part of the island was the dock. He loved floating on his raft in the waves! My dad and I had some nice father-daughter fishing adventures off the dock too! We sure didn't catch much... My mom loved walking around the island on all of the different paths. She was also amazed by the outdoor kitchen too! That was another family hangout spot during the trip. The whole family went on a kayaking adventure around the island too! Dad and I also got to go explore Sombrero Reef!!! That was really incredible. There were so many bright fish that would just swim right up to you. I had never been snorkeling before, so it was a great experience. All in all, the trip was remarkable. Your house is beautiful, the island is full of unique wildlife (loved those hermit crabs), and it really was the perfect getaway. I couldn't have asked for a better graduation trip or a better vacation in general. Thank you for all of your hard work making the island one of a kind.

-The Speight family

Owners response: This is one of the sweetest reviews we've received to date. This lovely high school senior writes beautifully and is so thoughtful. I applaud Mr. & Mrs. Speight for bringing up their daughter to respect nature and appreciate the beauty of her unique experience on Seabird Key. We find this review so refreshing...Thank you so much and good luck in college. Seabird will always welcome you back!
