Tropical Pool Home with Tiki Hut & 60' Dock

Wonderful! 4.8/5 -
(20 traveler reviews)


Property Details

Updated: Nov 24, 2016
2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Lush Tropical Pool half duplex home with view of th e Gulf of Mexico and incredible sunsets. Recently revnovated octagonal shaped home with wide open water views from every window. Newly furnished comfortable interior with all the ammenities you'd expect. Brick pavers surround lush landscaping and palm trees - sit under the large tiki hut by a crystal blue pool and take in the sunset. The pool, tiki area, dock and all the described amenities are for your exclusive use and not shared. Outdoor dining set on the deck and lots of lounging furniture for you to relax and enjoy! This home has a large open floor plan with vaulted ceilings and over 1425 square feet of living space. The master suite has a king sized bed and the guest bedroom has a queen with a pull out sofa in the living room. Full kitchen with stainless appliances and Corian countertops. Dockage can accommodate a 50 foot boat with over 60' of deepwater dockage.

Want to cool off, take a dip in the home's large private pool or take a dip in this crystal clear lagoon free of the noise and congestion you'd encounter on many of the canal homes. Or grap our double ocean kayaks, your fins and a mask and explore the crystal clear Gulf just a few paddles from this home.

We provide kayaks and beach cruiser bikes to guests at no additional charge. These toys will come in handy, as this is not your typical canal home that are rented throughout Marathon. This one has open water, privacy and an un-obstructed view. This property overlooks a large water cove, deepest point is 25 feet. So much marine life to enjoy right from the dock, including tarpon tailing, manatees, rays and porpoises and snapper. Beyond the cove is the Gulf of Mexico, to the east is Vaca Cut ocean access and to the west 7 mile bridge ocean access. Bring your boats and jet skis because there is also plenty of room for them along with your vehicles and trailers.

Just bring your boat, dive gear & tackle! If you don't have a boat, we'll guide you to boat rentals and they can deliver one right to your dock.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I were so pleased with this property at Marathon Key. The home was spacious and uncluttered and the pool and dock area were beautifully landscaped. My son had a great time trying to crack the coconuts that fell off the palm trees surrounding the property. The inside of the home was spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed having our morning coffee or evening drinkss from the tiki hut and relaxing in the hammock chairs. The fishermen among us could cast off the dock directly and caught several fish. This is one property that lived up to expectations generated by the web site. We would certainly stay there again on another visit. (enter on behalf of Bonds Family)

Great View

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. Everything was clean and the photos are very accurate. The kitchen had plenty of amenities. The view every morning out the window was perfect with a cup of coffee. The 2nd bedrom and bath were a little smaller than we had anticipated but we made it work. It's located in a nice area and check in and check out was very easy.

This was our 2nd year and already booked for the future. This property is well maintained with a beautiful setting. This is the perfect layout for fishing/boating or just relaxing. Deep/easy access to the gulf. The pool is a big plus and serviced often. The owners had replaced several new items this year; freezer, couch, washing machine, and the best BBQ Grill!!! The Tiki Hut provides a great place to catch up on your emails or just sit in the shade a bit. The kitchen is well stocked with the essential amenities. The open kitchen and great room provides plenty of sitting and lounging room for the entire family.

Loved every minute!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the opportunity to escape 26 inches of snow and frigid temperatures and spend three wonderful weeks in the Keys. Joe Curley’s home is everything and more, and we are already in the process of securing a reservation for 2017.

The house itself is bright, airy and impeccably clean, offering unparalleled views of the wide canal and on out to Florida Bay. The width of the canal is significant because many Marathon area homes are located on very narrow canals. For those concerned about the shared nature of this property, let me assure you that the two properties feel decidedly separate and provide plenty of very private outdoor space.

We used the outdoor spaces frequently including the private pool area and the tiki hut (great for sunset watching!). We were also delighted to see a pair of small sharks as well as a manatee and so many beautiful birds right from our own backyard. Our little dog was thrilled to find the pool area completely fenced which gave her secure opportunities to chase lizards around the grounds. We were also impressed with how committed the owners are to keeping the grounds looking beautiful. Our pool was cleaned frequently during our stay, and a landscape crew kept the property postcard pretty!

The house is situated in an area convenient to stores and restaurants along Route 1, but nestled in an upscale residential area. A small airport is located nearby, but the planes are generally small (even some pretty cool biplanes), and the noise from take offs wasn’t overly bothersome.

The Marathon area has so many interesting points to explore (most dog friendly), it would be hard to cover them all. Highlights include long walks at Bahia Honda State Park, Long Key State Park and Crane Point Nature center. The Turtle Hospital in town was also a memorable experience.

Once again, we were thrilled with selecting this property and can’t wait for a return trip!

My family and I totally enjoyed our stay at this house! It was very clean, the pool was perfect, and having access to the canal was the icing on the cake. My boys caught some fish right off the dock, we went kayaking, swimming, looking for lizards and coconuts. There were pool toys, sand toys, pack n play, etc. Everything we needed! The owners were very responsive and super helpful too. Thank you!

Great house, great location, great amenities

  • 5 of 5

The house and grounds are just as described and shown in the photos. There was zero trouble checking in or out. Everything in the house, dock, pool, was in good working order, clean, comfortable and well appointed. We did contact the owner and management company to have the pool heat turned on, that service was prompt, friendly, and thorough. As the owner responded in an early review, the pool became dirty a couple times during the week but only because of the excessive wind and the amount or trees in the yard . This was a non-issue for me, this stuff is unavoidable and it took me a couple of minutes with a skimmer to clean it up, my wife enjoyed taunting the "pool boy" anyhow.

The dock is perfect for any boat you should be bringing on vacation, its 5feet (?) deep right off the seawall so it was perfect for our 17 ft CC we brought down. I would highly recommend either bringing or renting a boat, we spent a great deal of time fishing, exploring the reef, or just cruising the canals around Marathon.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this house to any friend or family. My family, early 40s with two kids 5 and 7, are looking to book another stay in 2017, the value we feel we received from the Curly's made our decision on a place to go in 2017 rather easy.

Beautiful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My family had the best of time at rental home owned by the Curley’s. The pictures on the web didn’t capture everything it could have because it has to be seen to take it all in. The home was beautiful, the sites of the waterway and Gulf of Mexico were great, the pool was refreshing, the Kayaks were fun and drinks at the tiki hut by the water were perfect. The home was clean and well taken care of. The home is within a few miles of Publix, Papa Johns and other much needed places. We’ll surely be back again.
