About the property

Private Home-3BR/2BA (King, 2 doubles, 2 twins, sleeper sofa) Walk to Beach

Welcome to our Keys vacation home! We have a lovely home on a large fenced lot in a very private, quiet neighborhood. This Cocoplum location is one of the the best in the heart of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. Located on a wide, sailboat deep-water canal, our 110' wide fenced lot with a 25' dock, you are only a short boat ride to the Atlantic Ocean and reefs galore. Our house is fun and pleasant and can legally sleep up to 8 with beds for all. Only four steps up from the driveway, (NO FLIGHTS OF STAIRS HERE!) and you are in. (We chose our stair-less home for a true vacation!)

The master bedroom has a king size bed, 2 night stands, dresser w/mirror, private bathroom and large closet. The second bedroom has two full size beds and plenty of closet space. The third bedroom has two twin beds, night stand, closet & storage chest. The living room sofa is also a queen size sleeper. There is also a second full bathroom. A screened porch off the living room & dining room has table & chairs overlooking the spacious fenced yard, grilling patio & dock. The spacious kitchen has a breakfast counter, refrigerator w/icemaker, range, dishwasher, microwave, dishes, glasses, cookware, coffee maker, blender & all utensils. All house linens & towels are provided but please bring beach towels - mine went to the beach or on the boat and never returned! We have central air conditioning, TV/CABLE/WI-FI for internet, DVD/VCR, Stereo/CD player, Local phone service, and the important inside laundry room. Accomodates 8 comfortably.

Outside is very pleasant with mangroves and palm trees around the dock and back yard. The dock has a ladder for swimming or boat access, a fish cleaning table with water, light and 2-30amp service for shore power and storage box. Chairs, chaise lounges and umbrella table are provided for comfort and shade. We have a grilling patio with picnic table & Weber charcoal grill in the backyard for that great outside lunch or dinner after a day of fun in the sun. Located on a wide, deep canal & 110' wide lot, the 25' dock is great for swimming, docking and fishing. Bring your power boat and kayaks too - great area! No bridges to open water. Beautiful and serene area. Cocoplum Beach and boat launching are two minutes from house. We have a large lot and double driveway and plenty of room for parking vehicles and trailers.

The Family Will Be Back Next March.. Love It

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th trip to the Keys, with Marathon, being our favorite place. In past years we have rented several different type apartments and houses. . This home, was very comfortable, for our family. We did not have to worry about the kids, breaking anything. The yard was good for the pets and keeping the baby off the dock. The house was cool, clean, with comfortable beds. Plenty of room for all 7 people. The dock while old was great, our boat was safe, the fish station was fully usable and a short beautiful ride to the Atlantic Ocean. The screen porch wonderful. We love it and hope to stay there again. If you want a comfortable beach house, with beach access, in walking distance, this is the home. The only problem, is the owner is slow to reply, but she will and is very sweet and friendly. We plan to rent this home, next time. My son and his family are already making plans to come back. Next March here we come.

Wonderful House!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful House, great 3 bedroom with lots of extra space for more. A beautiful back yard with a screen porch and great access to the Atlantic. We loved our stay. The dock had a hose and cleaning station. The kitchen had everything we needed. We were very comfortable! We are already planning our return!

Basic house. Needs updating. Needs attention.

  • 2 of 5

Nice owner.. good neighborhood. Nice boat deck.

Basics are there. Hot shower. Old furniture. Good yard for dogs. Stained bedspreads and towels. Dust bunnies under the beds. Peeling paint on kitchen cabinets. Torn carpet on porch. Broken scrèen door. Price is too high for the quality. $150/nt. Is reasonable for this house until updated.
