Why Susana Munoz de Alba chose Central Florida Keys

waterfront home with nice secluded setting and complete privacy. sea frontage on all sides apart from the entrance driveway. PLR2016-00467

What makes this house unique

quiet relaxing setting with wrap around sea frontage and no immediate neighbors, but still within a short drive to Marathon town center.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Amazing! Our adult family of 6 loved our stay here in Grassy Key. The view was beautiful and the amenities were perfect! The pool was a wonderful relaxing retreat at the end of a day on the boat. We appreciated having a nice dock with hoses and lights to pull up to every evening. The kids loved mornings on the kayaks. We will be back again and again. Thank you David Thomas for a wonderfully maintained property. This is the perfect private get away for two or more. I will recommend this property to everyone.

Perfect 2nd Honeymoon House (Silver Anniversary) !

Perfect 2nd Honeymoon House (Silver Anniversary) !!!!!

Feeling young and vibrant! Take on the world! Celebrated our Silver Anniversary!!!

May 2017

Peninsular House – Marathon, Florida We had a great time celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary at the Peninsular House – gives you the feel of what “old Florida” would be like away from everyone, but actually just a hop, skip and jump from everything! Being marine mammal and sea turtle volunteers back in Delaware, we were happy to be so close to the Dolphin Research Center, Turtle Hospital and of course the beautiful waters of the Florida Keys! Gleefully kayaked over to Dolphin Research Center, ate breakfast under the tiki hut and/or on one of the many scenic porches –front, back and side, watched parrot fish chill around the dock while enjoying our morning coffee, appreciated the pool and as luck had it, a newly installed hot tub! Yeah baby! Want to dive, snorkel or fish for the “big one”? Check out Captain Hook’s Marina and Dive Center. Great for SCUBA Refresher and dive trips too! Dave you think of everything inside and out! Don’t want to charter a boat – no worries…fish right off the dock. Just grab a rod provided on the patio and the baits provided (in freezer on outside patio) and fish to your hearts content. House is roomy, clean and comfortable with all the amenities. Secluded by mangroves and water, we so loved the privacy, quiet, sunny days and star-lit skies. And I can’t leave out our newest friend across the way - Kilo (aka Stink-Lo or Stinky) a 500lb sea lion residing at the Dolphin Research Center. Kilo enjoyed barking at the moon a few nights at 4:00AM in anticipation of his harem – sea lioness’ Lina and Karen - who I’m sure played “hard to get” during this sea lion mating season. When I asked my loving husband if he heard Kilo, his response was “ I thought that was you snoring…” Stay Key-zy my friend! Judy & Chris | Middletown, DE p.s. Take good care of Ernest…the colorful resident iguana we named after Ernest Hemingway….very impressive species!

Amazing:)!!

  • 5 of 5

The peninsular house is absolutely amazing! The views are incredibly beautiful and the house itself is perfect for the keys. My husband and I had our honeymoon there and we couldnt have asked for a better time. There was so much to do just at the house! And the wildlife around there was so cool. Also the home owner is very easy to work with and very nice! If you are looking for a private relaxing getaway in a homey setting this is the place! My husband and I will definitely be making more memories at this amazing vacation spot!
