Seaside Escape! Boater’s Paradise!

In the heart of the Florida Keys, "La Casita" is on MM 52.

"La Casita" is a quaint 1/2 duplex canal home with 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom that can comfortably accommodate 4-6 guests.

This lovely home sits on the Atlantic Ocean side, just 2 houses from the ocean.

"La Casita" is really centrally located to a number of activities & easy access to different attractions, but you still will feel like you are "away from it all".

Located just 1 hour from Key West and 2 hours from Miami, our vacation home is a nice road trip destination. The Florida Keys Marathon Airport is a very easy commmute and the Key West International Airport is just 1 hour away.

A shaded deck area by the canal lends itself to a relaxing time; perfect for barbecuing, fishing from the canal, or just enjoying the cool breeze coming from the ocean. 

With 35 feet of dock space at the beginning of the canal, it can accommodate a wide variety of boats.

Ideal for a couples’ getaway or a family trip!

We speak English & Spanish.

traveler reviews for this marathon house rental

Great Week

Review submitted: May 20, 2014   Date of arrival: May 3, 2014

A great spot for exploring the Keys. Halfway between Key Largo and Key West. Well maintained, nicely appointed house with a great area out back. Enjoyed spending morning coffee time and evenings out back on the canal with a view out to the ocean. Rented a Kayak that we used right off the dock out back.

25th anniversary

Review submitted: April 27, 2014   Date of arrival: April 12, 2014

Wonderful, beautiful ,quiet place. Everything was clean,and neat as a pin... We so enjoyed everything.. The lunar eclipse during our stay was spectacular .. We got up at 200am to watch and could not have had a more perfect setting, on the back deck , lounging in the lounge chairs with a warm breeze and the beautiful canal, with views out to the Atlantic. It sure made for a memorable night. So happy we choose to stay at La Casita . Rene and Judy. Thank you so much!!!! We are already dreaming of returning for our 26th anniversary!
